Article in the paper today explaining why MW has been fired. The owners ambitions are to challenge the playoffs this year and the form is going in the wrong direction. The Bolton win bought time but we are now 10 points back.

MW was also causing discontent by his constant rotation which did not facilitate any sort of consistency. Some of the dressing room had been lost, and when that happens there is only one way - the door.

Karanka has apparently held initial talks. He may not be swashbuckling but I want to see wins, points and competition at the top of the table.

Some of the dressing room lost? That always happens in a big squad as some players inevitably miss out on game time. Warbs wanted to stop that happening by trimming the squad. He wasn't a total idiot.

If you were Vellios or Ward (established internationals) and couldn't get a game would you be happy?

As for the problem being rotation, if you don't rotate a bit then half the squad never play and you get unhappy players. Nobody said management was easy.

Which article? Which paper ?

Redcyclist: you know he's lost the dressing room when Eric has to take over on the pitch and looks as though he's the only one up for it, despite his contract being ignored. He did it with Montanier and again at the death against the black Cats.

We have only dominated one home game all season, Forest fans like to see attractive passing attacking football, organised defence and a tackle being made.
I like to see a passing game but it must have a purpose. Our passing is so slow with no zip, side to side, more back passing then forward passing. Static forwards gon't help.
Poor tactics and football awareness lost Warburton his job. Never expected to be involved in top six this season but we are in relegation form again.
The current squad could perform better under a new manager given the chance.

5.) 01 Jan 2018 13:41:09
If MW is such a great manager why have 25 attacking players and then wonder why the dressing room is unhappy at him playing one up front?

He deserves everything he got.

6.) 01 Jan 2018 13:55:26
I would think only signing one inept defender to replace our only decent defender when everyone else can see the defence required major surgery won’t have helped. Not to mention the utterly embarrassing climb down around sidelining our best defender in favour of an inept one sent a shudder of doubt through the board room, a real indicator something wasn’t right I’d sugggest. What would you think if he was working for you and entrusted with your funds and investment? Two things will happen now the defence will play better clearly showing the managerial teams coaching deficiencies or they will continue to be poor demonstrating what a poor decision it was not address in the summer having had a adequate time at he club last season to analysis and evaluate our weaknesses.

Cummings and Mahoney set to sign and rumours of Norwood. Promising to see young British players come in that can improve the squad and replace a lot of the dead weight.


1.) 12 Jun 2017 18:56:44

As far as the Norwood rumours what is the possible fee.

2.) 12 Jun 2017 19:10:39
Just seen Norwood is represented by :

Key Sports Management, is that who Warburton's daughter works for.

3.) 12 Jun 2017 20:12:14
Norwood is rated at £2.13mill, but has he been released by Brighton😎.

4.) 12 Jun 2017 20:21:30

Thank you for that, i was thinking he would be loaned to us and a loan fee would be involved.

I did not realise they had let him go.

5.) 12 Jun 2017 21:37:00
Norwood under contract they've not let him go just a rumour as not been getting regular games.

6.) 13 Jun 2017 08:04:56
None of this will be officially reported by Nottingham Evening Post until they see an official tweet - they get all their exclusives off twitter nowadays.

7.) 13 Jun 2017 10:17:10
Norwood is still at Brighton but is unlikely to get game time now. He's an ex Man Utd academy graduate who is very assured in the ball. Mid twenties and a scratch the type I expected MW to look to bring in.

If all three go through then we have striker, winger and new central midfielder all in the door. For me that just leaves us needing a new centre half and left back before we are good to go. Clearly need to cut some of the deadwood too which helps in part to balance the books and cut our wage bill.



14 May 2017 20:02:50
Linked with right back McLaughlin - excellent player who would provide good competition to Lichaj. An injury to Lichaj would be a disaster as we have very little experienced cover.


1.) 14 May 2017 20:43:13
Is that the lad we let go, believed not to be good enough.

We could of played another 10 hours and got no where near the goal.

Rome wasn't built in a day, and Karanka can't put his stamp on the side in two training sessions.

The Arsenal game was a sign of our potential but was a fluke. The side needs drilling and needs leadership. Two weeks of the window to go and we need two or three new faces minimum.




08 Jan 2018 18:57:52
Welcome Mr. Karanka!

I hope he gets the full fan and board backing. It's our job to create a fantastic atmosphere like last night.

He will build from the back, strong foundations being the order of the day. I'm happy with that, it'll make games far less nail biting as it's tiring thinking the opposition will score with every attack or a mistake will be made. He will definitely look for a defender or two to come in and probably a presence in midfield.

We have the creative players we need and we are evidently very capable of playing on the counter, probably the way he will go away from home.

Here's to success.

In my 23 years I have never been more proud to have been from Nottingham. Stunning performance, I'll be able to tell my grandkids that I was there in the Brian Clough stand watching King Eric.

I'd be tempted to give Brazil the job.


1.) 08 Jan 2018 10:07:13
Agree london still on a high city ground rocking again however back to reality sat brings the villa hope forest can maintain that performance against them remember after we beat qpr we lost poorly against brum don't forget no worral suspended so could have mills in there just a thought i thought the ref yesterday jon moss had a great game makes a change to some who have been to the cg COYR

Afternoon chaps,

The NP are running with Paul Heckingbottom being favourite for our new manager (4/ 1 decent odds) . Does anyone know much about him, his style of play and his experience? He isn't a name I'm too familiar with.



1.) 04 Jan 2018 16:58:31
I thought the Tykes had been bought out by a Chinese billionaire and the moneyball bloke. Could that mean Heckingbottom is trying tojump ship to Forest before the millions roll in together with a new big name manager? Either way I'm underwhelmed by this potential candidate!



31 Dec 2017 12:28:40
Right decision for me, I'd like to see a manager Karanka come in. He's been there and done it and he has good connections with the top clubs.

MW made the team one dimensional and changed the team too much. Look at Derby, same formation and back four all season and they're flying. You can't change the pairings, the formations etc and expect consistency.


1.) 31 Dec 2017 12:45:02
My mate txt me saying *Redknapp's interested* I replied *she can't even keep her fella mate??,never mind keeping us in this league??"😂😂😋

A ruthless approach has to be taken, look at Colin Barrett.

Barcelona struggled from having the small Messi, Iniesta and Xavi. Different class I know, but scalable.

From what I have seen on YouTube he looks pretty mobile. We could perhaps see Assombalonga lead the line with McKay, Cummings and Clough behind as a 3 with Osborn and Cohen in the middle.

Having said that, if MW plays his favoured 4-3-3 then one of them drops out or Clough forms part of the 3 in a deeper role.

Maybe MW and others knew something we didn't after all.

4-4-2 would be suicidal against Arsenal. Pack the midfield and break at speed.

I’d love to see Lewis come back, see if he can get back to the player he once was.

Still unsure of his system. 3-4-3, 3-5-1, 5-3-2, 4-5-1, 4-4-2 . what was it?
