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

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+

Why? He is hardly going to save Raffa and has more chance of passing him on the way up!

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.

Yesterday's game may not have had the same script as the week before, but never-the-less well done to MON & all for the result.
Nice to see Carvahlo included again & still in getting an assist. We may well have reached the play-offs if he had been included earlier (& MON knows this), but imo i think without being able to draw two wins together til yesterday we wouldn't have made it or been strong enough, so an 8-10th finish is ok.

MON needs to take the time to begin to add more quality to the little bit we have in the side & offload the rest come 30/6.
As Roy said.. lose the 'bluffers'.
Nice to see the clean sheets are coming back again. i just hope Karim doesn't become a Vellios - he needs to take his chances & finish.

Big slice of humble pie for MON today, our little wizard was unplayable with his flicks, tricks. The creativity we've missed.
Credit where it's due however as MON played him from the start & subbed him nr time to allow his ovation. Takes great character in any manager to show one's errors; Carvalhlo played to prove this. The standard is set. COYR

1.) 22 Apr 2019 23:07:51
Mons wrong lol I think a lot of fans need to be eating humble pie lol Dinosaur was it when carvahallo puts in more than the odd great performance and is consistent I will agree but today it was a all around great performance by all the players and the manager to get this squad playing like that well done Mon and Keane 💪🙌🙌🙌🙌


2.) 23 Apr 2019 05:51:07
We should be trying out different formation in training, and to change it three games at the end of the season and get the performance we got shows what could have been, I think we squandered our chances and players alike,
Maybe Goncalves and Dias were wasted and playing a more attacking brand of football is the best form of defence.
The squad isn’t as bad as some have suggested, but to honest with ourselves it’s still not good enough to go up,
If the club doesn’t do anything rash and invests wisely who knows where we can go, stability is what’s needed and less negativity on the pitch and from us fans.


3.) 23 Apr 2019 08:51:51
Thing is with carvalho how many times have we seen a performance like that from him? Most of the games he’s played have been well below par, but he has got quality an he just needs to show it more often


 

 

15 Apr 2019 12:44:34
Why MON is out of touch...Carvahlo may not be physical enough but if you can't get near him he doesn't need to be. I hope Carvalhlo is kept. If anything MON can go...with his hoofball, round pegs square holes & dross.
These players can deliver, yet it is for a manager to inspire. No-one ever thought Leicester would win the prem, even with one of our own.

Had? It might be past tense, not a MON type of player, apparently.

Shipping goals like 'billy-o' now. All AK's work being unpicked. Looks like the owners plan of changing the manager for a fresh push to the premier League earlier this yr' has backfired.
For a while under AK we had some stability & now dross football (cheers MON) with uncertainty.
Carvalhlo who?

Fighter pilot

1.) 09 Apr 2019 23:44:58
Stated at the time it should have been Jokanovic. Was advised by some on here that we could not afford him but we are now paying for MON and RK plus a DOF who in my opinion does nothing but micro manage so looks like we could have afforded Jokanovic after all. What concerns me is how the owner made the decision to hire them because let's face it they don't have a good track record


2.) 09 Apr 2019 23:59:08
Agreed Fighter pilot. Think we would be in a better position playing better football under Krankie than the tripe we are seeing now. Yes the football Karanka played sometimes wasn’t the best but it was a damn sight better than this crap. Talking of ‘billy-o’, unfinished business part 3 anyone? We’ve not had any decent football since he left.


3.) 10 Apr 2019 00:13:27
Aks work has landed us in this mess.
The owners should never have trusted him.
Cast your mind back to when he first came?
We went away to wolves expecting defeat and we won and won well.
Next game we went to hull in the fa cup and lost.
Toys out the pram falls out with the majority of players and panic buys on the last day of the transfer window in January.
Fans on here were getting excited,great signings?
They were all garbage barring one.
We went on the worst run in the history of the club for not scoring and he'll probably go down in history for that stat.
Comes the summer we sign another shed load of past it's or could be's.
We get the usual Greek gifts that are crap,we have players like Osborn who has the best engine I've seen in years but no vision.
Ak bought all of this crap to the club,so if you call that stability then that's your choice,I call a disaster and it's going to set us back a few years.
Ffp will be looming with all these stupid overrated and past it players being bought to this club.


4.) 10 Apr 2019 07:08:34
When AK was here we were hard to beat, and you could see that the players were enjoying there football, granted there were too many draws and it was obvious we needed another striker to help Grabban, now there’s just hit and hope and no real plan, we are playing old style football and you can say it’s all the dross players but earlier in the season not only did we match the top eight sides in this league we also beat most of them,
For the first time in ages the fans started to get excited then whatever happened in early December has costs us dearly again. And I say this again there are people at our club who have been there to long sticking the noses in and there fingers as well that need to be moved on, because they’ve been causing problems for the past twenty years.


5.) 10 Apr 2019 07:13:50
It seems to me that all these loan signings are due to FFP and a way of trying to get round it. I don't think AK or any of the previous managers or MON had a say in who was signed. We also gambled with the 3 Portuguese signing and lost.


6.) 10 Apr 2019 07:16:01
Ff,You keep spouting on about Karanka bringing in dross and the imbalance of the squad but this team was competing well early doors. Remember West Brom in the first game? Some of the best football I've seen in years.
A good manager would get a tune out of this lot. Look at Bruce. Wednesday were awful under Luhukay and had the worst defenses in the championship. Bruce comes in and with the same squad has one defeat in twelve games with 8 clean sheets.
Defensive injuries have blighted our season along with the constant changing of managers.


7.) 10 Apr 2019 08:31:17
Okay Ff let me remind you of your post of the 01st of December and I quote.

They all had a good game today,I've seen the light I'm a krankie believer.
Seriously guys we are genuine challengers and I've been seriously entertained the last four games as well.
Hope,no I don't, think we'll get promotion.
Well done redinexile,you called it and it is getting better and exciting to watch.

Demis towards the end of his tenure Preston qpr and millwall didn’t find us hard to beat we beat Leeds in the end but only after being outplayed for long periods by 10 men , then the disastrous substitution at Norwich, bored the backside off everyone in a free hit game at Chelsea, I actually wanted him to stay but he spat his dummy out and walked, ( not for the 1st time) let’s not make him sound better than he was


9.) 10 Apr 2019 11:54:18
Mickn at the time we looked like we were just about to turn a corner,but it never materialised and December and Jan went down hill.
I always give credit to a good display my friend no matter who the manager.
Injuries have been a factor but when you have a Massive squad you should be able to cope,when grabban lolley Dawson or figs were injured there was no back up,just numbers


10.) 10 Apr 2019 12:14:57
Your missing my point Stevie, when we make progress there are elements at the club who get involved for there own benefit they did it with Billy Warbo and Aitor and then they suggest Managers to appease and blind the fans.


11.) 10 Apr 2019 12:48:24
I'll say it, McGovern.


12.) 10 Apr 2019 13:48:53
Red Fred Bruce might be on a good start at Wednesday,but he couldn't stop villa shipping goals with a much better squad and paid the price for it.
For all we know Milosevic and Bonatini might be injured,it's not like we get the best info from the club on injuries.
West Brom I remember well and we were superb for sixty minutes,but could have lost in the end with WBA pelting pur goal.
We should have beaten villa and Norwich away,but we weren't capable of shutting up shop,just not good enough consistently,that comes from bringing in too many players in one year.

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?

Maybe not re promotion. But the performances v Norwich (a) 80 mins, Leeds, W Brom, NCastle (cup) show Forest can compete.The worry is 3 games on the bounce of dross with a new style of hoofball. Forest didn't play this style prior to MON!

Totally agree especially the lumping hit & hope balls. As a midfielder, goals per game re BO is dire; he isn't improving. Simply offers workrate & flexibility but imo not enough. 10th is where I think we'll finish.

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).
