Would not be surprised if AK gets the chop. Who's a good mate of Evan Mariakos??- old Fawaz. Clearly they get on.
On balance the Portugal lads have been a failure - can't see 13m for JC is value so far.
But is AK to blame or his scouting?, LG has done well til recently and this was an AK choice.
My fear is we may be on another merry go round but with a different master of the same view as Fawaz- time will tell.

i think grabban had an argument with kranks after the Ipswich game for bringing him off when he was on a hat trick, grabs not looked the same since.

2.) 30 Dec 2018 15:15:27
You could be right arran. Just watched the Netflix series on Sunderland last year. Grabban was on loan from Bournemouth and scoring most of their goals. When Coleman took him off after 70 minutes a couple of times, he asked for his loan to be terminated. Then went to Villa and started scoring for fun again.
Totally selfish, but hell of a finisher.

3.) 30 Dec 2018 18:21:33
Goalscorers have to be selfish but he prob had a point to thinking it was prob his best chance to get 1 an he was playing well an felt good so didn’t wanna come off an prob thought hey we should go 2 up front an really kill the game off an win 3 or 4-0



03 Nov 2018 22:41:57
Excellent result today. One good chance & we took it. AK dropped the worst weak links from midweek, straight out of the 18. Yacob MOM imo, so cool; he took a lot of heat of CB's.
No game time for Watson for a while.
Benny's playing streak comes to an end but the correct decision given the result.
Performance A+

Benny will be off in Jan,!

2.) 05 Nov 2018 11:38:37
Why? He is hardly going to save Raffa and has more chance of passing him on the way up!



24 Feb 2018 19:43:04
Wait for a goal & then 5 come along. Chuffed to bits, especially against cheeky chappie Holloway.(9 over two games. whoops ha ha)

Daryl Murphy not too bad. Clearly given his age he has the experience to pass down. His fitness can't be an issue, if he's passed medical. So MW looking not to spend too much (which DM's age dictates) but to find a striker with a slightly different style to BA. A box presence to draw defenders and make gaps. Youth is the future but BB still needs a bit more time. DM will permit this, so MW knows what he's doing imo. As an aside, DM is a humble chap. bumped into him at Bolton (a) season before last.

Great signing, he will be good for this season. The 3 year contract is questionable but his agent will have dictated that.

So Karanka was sacked? Cheers DF. If true, looks like the 'official' story we've been fed is all a lie.
Why would DF need to make this up now?

Who is DF?

Gone done one done a runner lol and if not deserved the sack 😁😁😁

That can’t be true, Surely the club wouldn’t lie🤔

Wish O’Neill would run along with him!

6.) 04 Feb 2019 07:48:47
A tadge early for that Tap my friend . Give it at least one more game 😂

7.) 04 Feb 2019 08:35:01
The df is dougie freedman makes sense now gumps mate 🏃‍♀️😂

8.) 04 Feb 2019 08:48:18
Colback, Dawson, Osbourne, Grabban, Robinson and Pantilimon have all had offers from other clubs. So did Jacob I expect. Appiah is wanted by other clubs.

We aren't Manchester City. We aren't in the Prem. We can't compete for the most in demand players. If we spend what we need to on those we are back in a transfer embargo.

The point of a good scouting system is to spot players who can be better than their value, improve or do a specific job. Supplement them with a few you spend bigger on (like Grabban) and you get promoted.

9.) 04 Feb 2019 12:18:50
weve got too be a squad to build a good team spirit that is needed, we need to get rid of about 15 players in the summer and sign bout 6 and work with a squad of bout 20

10.) 04 Feb 2019 12:43:50
Fair point 2star, I’ll give him one more game til half time.!👍🏻😁

11.) 04 Feb 2019 20:12:48
That’s the spirit tap👍



01 Feb 2019 10:14:03
Not too bad a window. LB a surprise with a try before you buy option & looks keen. Given DM's age, an element of forward planning?
Mr Mendez owes us a favour after the last 3 & although maybe too much input from his ranks; surely better to have him on side than not
The others newbies. wait and see.
Nice to get some height in the squad, just need to deliver them corners better.
Glad we kept Benny for a paltry £3m bid. Granted goals per game is low but he offers versatility and consistent availability.
His team value is more than his own imo.
Britt for £15m doesn't look too bad now.

Fighter pilot

1.) 01 Feb 2019 10:30:51
Would have liked someone out wide with real pace. Maybe Appiah now gets his chance?

2.) 01 Feb 2019 11:20:49
I would love to see appiah get a chance and maybe martin will give him that chance.from what I've seen I've got high hopes for the sons met him a couple of times and said he's a really nice guy who seems to have his head screwed on

3.) 01 Feb 2019 13:11:14
Its his head is screwed on let's hope his leg bolts are secure so he can get up and down and find the net?😉

4.) 01 Feb 2019 13:19:45
Appiah's best chance of getting on is with 20 minutes to go to run at tired defenders imo.

5.) 01 Feb 2019 13:23:09
Haha yeah especially with our injury curse



19 Jan 2019 19:46:05
First game under MoN & nothing to write home about. Bristol city looked dangerous on the counter & a fair result sadly

Fighter pilot

1.) 19 Jan 2019 20:06:48
0-1 down at home with 2holding midfielders with your top assister on the bench and you bring Dias on!poor subs

2.) 19 Jan 2019 20:24:22
Sutton couldn't agree more mate but it's his first week

3.) 19 Jan 2019 20:26:25
Sutton, I agree with you, very poor on all fronts. Give the guy a chance though, it’s not like it was vastly different from the 0-1 at home to QPR and Preston .

4.) 19 Jan 2019 21:43:14
It was bloody bristol City unbeaten in 10 games new manager 4 days you lot make me laugh no wonder this bloody club is doomed manager that as bought in 20 millions worth of crap and leaves cause he's going to get no where with this shambles and you moan about a bloke that's been in 4 days expect it off Sutton as he his a derby fan through and through but really. 😈

5.) 19 Jan 2019 21:57:16
Blimey skeggs, suttons a derby fan?
I just thought he was full of wind?
My mistake😉🤣

6.) 20 Jan 2019 00:01:44
So 15 goal Grabban is crap then Skeg 😂Don't blame the other lad, he wasn't on the pitch. The club is doomed as you say because we change manager every 6 months and effectively start again.

7.) 20 Jan 2019 07:49:20
Can’t agree more perks, it was woeful , we looked out of sorts, but banging on about poor players, it’s the setup and injuries which is a problem at the minute and Osborn playing left back, how many games have we won with him playing there?
MON is a strong character but I’m sure he must be thinking wot have I took on.

8.) 20 Jan 2019 10:19:20
All our fullbacks are woeful. Not MON's fault but something he must sort as they are key to both a solid defence and fluid attacking side



01 Jan 2019 18:58:32
A stroke of genius today by AK? Hefe goes off & normally BO to LB & Robbo to CB would be the call. but mix it up & send Benny on later in an advanced position & hey presto he scores with his right!!! Quality.

Imo Osborn at the right price. Sell. Puts in the graft but when midfield simply not enough goals or physical presence.Thats why Watson & co came in.As LB just too small as Cardiff showed.
Versatile, but since his Ipswich debut his progression has stalled.

Bassong is woeful. Norwich were glad to be rid. I may be wrong but was Bassong not part of more than one relegated first team squads (different clubs). A bit Lescott esque?

Ref also gave time for 3 goals (1.5mins). 7 mins was fair. We threw it away with Dias - who is crappier than crap each game - loanee (no surprise there then).

Manc is a confidence player & that is all but completely gone in him.
In this league there simply isn't time to nurture it back. The games come too quick & top to bottom, the intensity & demands of the teams means no one can be carried.

Cheers Mance. @ least 7 points lost due to him alone this season.

2 tonight for the 'play the man' free kick.
Ipswich away. What a horror show x2
Home game shortly after, more derrr defending.

AK on 30/6, move him on.

Unbelievable CIG. If playing at Chelsea rocks your boat just go and support them.
As a supporter i am only interested in watching the reds play & their performance, the opposition holds no interest.
The so called supporters who wait for oh Arsenal, Chelsea to come to town to then show up are just fake.
Preston at home tomorrow is a good day out, just like every other Forest game (subject to performance).
