So a premature sacking looks to be on the horizon then. Hopefully it works out. Has Warburton got a job yet?


1.) 26 Dec 2018 22:23:21
According to twitter he's already gone

2.) 26 Dec 2018 22:24:13
According to Twitter he has agreed to go by mutual consent

3.) 26 Dec 2018 22:45:19
It was gutting to give 2 away in stoppage time, it happens though, but a point at Norwich is a good result overall. The drive home was very quiet.
To start calling for the managers head now is crazy, that will get them nowhere as proved on many occasions in the past. 3pts off the play off spots. Another 12 months and it will be a different story.

4.) 26 Dec 2018 23:55:25
Bv ak is once again moaning about players attitudes yet there HIS players now so has he bought wrong ? He keeps playing 4,2,3,1 at home and it isn't working yet still plays it, he bought dias on when we needed a steady head and dias cost us the 2 goals, pants has been second rate his while career and still is the list is starting to mount now a little less stubbornness from ak and we would be closer to the top 2 but he refuses to admit certain things aren't working

5.) 27 Dec 2018 02:08:28
Premature? He's won 15 out of 49 games!

6.) 27 Dec 2018 07:45:12
Why not go for a proven British manager- step forward Big Sam.

7.) 27 Dec 2018 09:10:41
He’s only got himself to blame, crap subs useless tactics esp at home, yesterday I can’t see why he took Robinson off n unbalanced the back 4 then we bring on Dias who might aswell of been wearing yellow n yet still people don’t think it’s the managers fault, he’s the 1 who chooses what to do, I think since the ipswich game n his post match interview something clearly happened, did he bring grabban off when he was on a hat trick? Maybe he had an argument with him

8.) 27 Dec 2018 10:45:58
Thank God there is someone on here with common sense, thank you balanced view. I'm sure just about everyone on here would have taken a point before kick off, that said it was still pretty gutting to draw from 3-0 up with 20 to go. The ref made some awful decisions both ways.

Karanka has done a decent job this season and we are on the fringe of play-offs, people on here are so fickle when it comes to the managers and results, it's hilarious.

Hope you stay Karanka and Happy Xmas to you.

9.) 27 Dec 2018 11:51:34
I think he has done well and brought a good style of football when it has worked but needs to be more flexible in his approach to some games.
Under Fawaz we called for managers heads mainly because the managers were puppets to Fawaz and now we have an owner and board with ambition it seems like fans don't like that either?
If AK is sacked it is because the people in control want better for our club so surly we should be thankful for that shouldn't we?

10.) 27 Dec 2018 11:52:11
Actually it was 13 to go

11.) 27 Dec 2018 11:55:28
According to my maths he's won 8 out of 21 home games. Not many clubs with poor home form Like that. Not many managers would survive that stat especially with 22009 season ticket holders who the owners need to renew next year.

12.) 27 Dec 2018 11:57:21
Random fact 1: Mark Warburton and Dougie Freedman both had better win percentages than Aitor Karanka operating with far fewer resources.

Imagine what they could have done with this kind of money.

13.) 27 Dec 2018 12:52:51
Know what you are saying RedCyclist but we all know the type of player Warburton brought in so I think that would have been disastrous.
AK has brought in some very good players but his systems and the love of his favourites even when not playing well, is not getting the best from them.
Let's see who we bring in and who is in control in January but good to see the owner is aiming high

14.) 27 Dec 2018 13:28:15
We DO NOT know what type of player Warburton might have brought in with £26M at all because he didn't have the opportunity. That is obvious.

I'd be the first to agree that he made a couple of transfer mistakes but he still managed to win occasionally with far cheaper players. That is what a coach's main job in. Get wins.

Tachsidis? Watson? Are they really better than Bridcutt?

Is Goncalves a better player than Barrie McKay?

I'll tell you the difference between those players. The ones Karanka signed are on a lot more money.

15.) 27 Dec 2018 13:29:46
all managers are puppets to the owner and all managers have their favourites. .that's why they sign them.
Just saying

16.) 27 Dec 2018 13:42:27
Agree the manager has made some mistakes but don't we all.
Looking at the whole picture we are inconsistent.
Looking at our results against the leading pack in the division,
we drew but should have won with Leeds
1 point from Norwich from both games should have been 3
drew with WBA
beat Sheff UTD
beat Midboro
drew with Derby

So what i'm saying is we are a good side , losing just once to the cream teams , yes we are bang average at home but we are still so much improved on last season.
We are getting there all be it slowly.
Forget last season and bringing the stats in its this season that counts. Last season was all about survival ,this season is about making play offs and we aren't far off.

17.) 27 Dec 2018 13:59:45
I think we do know RedCyclist, that's why they got rid before allowing him to do it again lol.
McKay was never going to be good enough apart from the odd goal but all the rest about comparing players is irrelevant
A good player may look poor if not happy or not played in the correct position or formation such as Pogba.
The buck stops with the manager and it looks like we are in for a change whether we want it or not so comparing players or past managers matters not. Forward not backwards

18.) 27 Dec 2018 14:23:56
Calm down fellow Reds and stay with Karanka! If Dias had put his boot through it with the last kick of the game we d be in 7th place a point adrift!Admittedly Dias was a strange choice as sub but it must have AK tearing his hair out!The Real Madrid team he was at the heart of would have kept the ball for most of the remaining minutes so the opposition wouldn't have had a sniff!

19.) 27 Dec 2018 14:25:35
The point I'm making is that we would not have signed Barry McKay if we had 13M to spend on one player. So no we DON'T know what he would have signed because he didn't have the money.

My opinion is this. The main problem we have had for 10 years is that we perform against strong sides and can't beat the average and poor ones. We still have exactly that problem. We are also still not winning games in spite of spending an absolute fortune.

I'd be so happy if Krankie turns it around. I want us to get promoted. But the suspicion I have had since the day he was appointed is that he is no better than previous managers. I still suspect that is the case.



23 Dec 2018 11:13:21
Cardiff City set to sign Joe Lolley from Nottingham Forest for £12.75 million in January transfer window. Just a case of dotting the i's and crossing the t's.


1.) 23 Dec 2018 11:27:32
They will be coming down so why would he sign for them.

2.) 23 Dec 2018 12:17:35
Because they can pay him more than we can.

3.) 23 Dec 2018 12:18:41
If we get rid of lolley we might aswell pack up for the season

4.) 23 Dec 2018 12:55:15
What,s 10o/o of 12m ,I can see his agents eye,s twinkling now ,that why he,ll leave but AK doing a Marinio, on him won,t help !

5.) 23 Dec 2018 12:58:22
Where have you heard this pyshco?

6.) 23 Dec 2018 13:45:36
Pc76, Just one word Tomlin?



09 Oct 2018 11:31:56
Cardiff are preparing a £15 million bid for Joe Lolley in January. That'll be him gone then.


1.) 09 Oct 2018 13:09:22
They will be relegated by then and we'll be in the automatic promotion places.

2.) 09 Oct 2018 13:09:28
Cardiff will be relegated by Jan,so hopefully not

3.) 09 Oct 2018 15:57:26
Lolley has a 4.5 year contract. Unless we want to sell he is going nowhere. FULL STOP!

4.) 09 Oct 2018 17:04:35
Pc76 I cannot seem to find anything to corroborate this rumour?

5.) 10 Oct 2018 07:40:20
Sgetty I would say Pc76's 'sauce' comes straight out of a bottle (On meals and for drinking prior to pre-forum posting LOL)



06 Oct 2018 18:46:58
Another dodgy performance. We got the win Yes. But 'boro dominated possession and they created more chances than us. Krankie has got to go and take pantillimon, Robinson, Carvalho, Dias amongst others with him. Not good enough.


1.) 06 Oct 2018 19:15:42
They created 1 more chance, and WE had 1 more shot on target, they had 6% more possession, but we did more with our possession, WE even played more than 10 minutes with 10 men, Lighten up and enjoy the win.

2.) 06 Oct 2018 19:17:18
Are you mad? We were absolutely the better team throughout

3.) 06 Oct 2018 19:23:07
Come on mate don't hold back,let's have it we can take it on the chin. I for one hoped we could get a draw but this result seems to be fully deserved . We are looking for consistency and it will come .

4.) 06 Oct 2018 19:42:13
I sense slight sarcasm in the original post

5.) 06 Oct 2018 20:33:02
He must have played this game on his playstation. Even the Boro fans admitted they were played off the park conceding their first league goals at home this season!

6.) 06 Oct 2018 23:40:58
What's this "PlayStation" thing that you speak of?

7.) 07 Oct 2018 08:03:45
Guys he’s being flippant - it’s a post for the ‘foremoaners’

8.) 07 Oct 2018 08:16:25
Pyshco. Wtf?. was you watching last seasons game or just trying to a few thumbs down 👇 for your post?
Either way you must be from the wrong side of the A52. 🐏

9.) 07 Oct 2018 21:22:36
Fawaz, don't reply to any posts on the 1st of April. 🤔🤔🤔
Just saying. 🤣🤣🤣



26 Sep 2018 15:50:04
The alleged Ansarifard transfer is playing out in a similar fashion to the Byram loan. Which ended up being 6 weeks in the making.


1.) 27 Sep 2018 05:28:46
It’s a work permit issue

2.) 27 Sep 2018 08:25:32
He has played over 60 games for his country and has played in Europe for a Turkish team, why would a work permit be a problem.?

3.) 27 Sep 2018 09:52:41
Wrong country Greek club, not Turkish.

4.) 27 Sep 2018 12:59:03
Ma6be the government is being awkward as we have a British woman locked up in an Iranian jail on a trumped up spy charge.

5.) 27 Sep 2018 14:05:58
She may be locked up but we can not be sure the spy charge is trumped up. You could be right above the government though.

6.) 27 Sep 2018 18:28:31
Ff799 you mean an Iranian woman has been locked up in an Iranian prison on spy charges.

7.) 27 Sep 2018 20:09:16
Better get Boris on the case!

The players seemed demoralised today. Loss of interest? Is that because they liked krankie and wanted to play for him?


1.) 12 Jan 2019 18:47:05
If that’s anywhere near true they’re a disgrace karanka didn’t pay their wages

2.) 12 Jan 2019 19:17:28
There’s a lot going on behind the scenes, who ever takes over I hope he’s aloud to manage without the influence of the dads army sticking there noses in, they might of been great once but please that’s the past, Aitor wouldn’t have left if they kept out of who he should pick to play. So please let the next man manage and keep your opinions to your self’s.

3.) 12 Jan 2019 19:33:35
Dead right stevie, wtf anybody gives a thumbs down to that is beyond me, anyone care to explain

4.) 12 Jan 2019 20:26:36
Oakhamred I find on this board people thumbs down people not the point that is being made mate

5.) 12 Jan 2019 20:33:45
I've always found if someone is upset at work their performance level drops.Its that simple Oakham. Maybe the players aren't happy the way things have played out. They certainly know more than we do.

6.) 12 Jan 2019 20:52:30
True perks in most jobs you don't do yours you are usually sacked but players don't live in the real world do they.

7.) 12 Jan 2019 21:56:47
Stevie how can u get so many thumbs down, u are right no matter what they thought that was a shite performance as if they didn’t care whatever for me they shouldn’t get their wages for that

8.) 12 Jan 2019 23:15:28
Believe it or not even overpaid people have feelings and emotions which might help or hinder performance.

9.) 12 Jan 2019 23:43:43
Arran don’t care how many thumbs down I get mate, that’s my opinion that’s what the board is for.

10.) 13 Jan 2019 00:04:23
Aye up perks don't go to bed with some one who is upset, you'd be on a right downer. 🤣🤣🤣

11.) 13 Jan 2019 00:25:52
Not bad that for you 79 👍

12.) 13 Jan 2019 03:12:38
I understand they are human but to put such an inept performance means they weren't playing for the club or the fans it said to me they didn't give a duck and that's wrong managers come and go nottingham forest will be here forever, hope we get a new man in charge quick cus that Ireland is deluded, so want us to give Lincoln a bell and get cowley bros in we need a pick up an them 2 would do that.



11 Jan 2019 10:51:22
So if the new manager doesn't get us up this season will he be sacked? Then another one comes in and if by Christmas we're not top or in the top 6 will he then get sacked? Hope we don't carry on with the short-sighted ethos of not giving managers a full season in charge.


1.) 11 Jan 2019 11:02:24
It is what it is 76 in marankis i trust 😊

2.) 11 Jan 2019 11:04:45
My sentiments exactly Pc

3.) 11 Jan 2019 11:07:36
It's embarrassing to be honest.

4.) 11 Jan 2019 11:58:51
He’s walked, he wasn’t sacked, clearly there as been a disagreement of some sorts but I’m not impressed without karanka anyway look at all the support forest fans gave him when the rumours of him being sacked after the Leeds game an he just throws that in our faces by walking out, that’s nice of him so for me get someone in who’s more enthusiastic an plays entertaining football, I said in another post I’d like the Lincoln manager, these managers that know how to win are rare look at Sheff Utd with wilder an stoke just got jones in from Luton



06 Jan 2019 00:41:35
Sack him. Our first team can't beat a second string Chelski team. Considering we're on about getting promotion then we shouldn't be losing this match. Not good enough.


1.) 06 Jan 2019 01:05:12
What you on about mate???

I know but it’s written like somebody has been moaning about losing yesterday , nobody has

Very good Chelsea side. However shows how far we have to go

7.) 06 Jan 2019 11:10:02
Sgetty wasn’t over my head , just seemed a pointless piece of sarcasm as far as I can see no one has remotely moaned about losing yesterday,



01 Dec 2018 10:08:19
Who will be next on the 'hate list'? We've done Grabban, Osborn, Carvalho, Watson and Pantillimon. Who else could we possibly berate from now till the end of the season? I suppose we could turn on Lolley if he goes through a barren spell and doesn't score or set one up in his next 3 games.


1.) 01 Dec 2018 10:39:02
Now who’s setting a negative tone ?you ain’t happy unless your moaning about people moaning! And if people aren’t moaning you try and provoke it,

2.) 01 Dec 2018 11:25:20
Not negativity just satire, duck.

3.) 01 Dec 2018 12:29:55
When have people not moaned about pants because I don't remember a time lol

4.) 01 Dec 2018 12:49:19
If you think Pantimilon is a decent keeper get down to spec savers. He is kin useless. And when it comes to distribution its all hospital balls. I will never be convinced. Csll it moaning i call it reality😂



01 Sep 2018 20:26:24
Great to see the fickle nature of some Forest fans exposed. The euphoria of the signings in the summer has been quickly replaced by the dysphoria of only 1 win and 1 defeat in the opening 6 games in what is a 46 game season.


1.) 01 Sep 2018 20:37:33
It's the 22 that preceded it and the same pattern that's the problem,can you not see that my friend??

2.) 01 Sep 2018 20:49:36
Mate??? I have backed Karanka from the start???
Getting so fed up with our beloved Forest getting played off the park!!!
He is so bloody stubborn with this one up front crap???
He refuses to change tact!!
Watson's a spent force. he hasn't the legs for his position.
And it's proved time and time again when has to bring Osbourne comes on.
This is a really good squad that's crying out for a good manager.
I'm sorry but this league,(and owner) does not suffer fools gladly.
I cannot for the life of me understand what's went wrong since the West Brom game???
And I don't think he does either???
Sorry Aitor,I was expecting a helluva lot better than this dross???
Time to sort it. or time to go!!!

3.) 01 Sep 2018 21:00:31
Well said rogie and take note fellow fans,as rogie is our court jester and never gets upset.
Things have got to change and fast or karanka has to go,

4.) 01 Sep 2018 21:04:40
Rogue guediora was on fire that night mate and has been a big miss

5.) 01 Sep 2018 21:12:59
Rogie bloody phone sorry about name change mate but probably accurate!😊

6.) 01 Sep 2018 21:21:03
Hello we played brentford today, famous for nylons and a shopping mall. This has been coming under krankie. His priority in playing the light weights and his favourites is biting him. Its not just todays result its a culmination. By all accounts we were out battled again today.

7.) 01 Sep 2018 21:22:58
Stevie absouloutley agree a big miss for pennys spent on him but to be honest maye look around the team this should be a great attacking team and he's trying to turn it into a defensive team it ain't working somegood managers would give there right arm for this team

8.) 01 Sep 2018 22:07:48
No worries guys!!!
Just think we were going so see at least some improvement???
Just wish I could get some time off to see a match and some of you guys. especially as my wife's doing her yearly "project" in the kitchen!!!
I swear she turns into Nick Knowles (without the stubble,and gravelly voice)
Even the neighbours gather outside!!! Lol!!!
Maybe he could do us a favour and "Save Our Season"!!!😂😂😂

9.) 01 Sep 2018 22:09:52
Think your right Stevie. Guedioura is a big miss for us but we didn't miss him as much when Bridcutt played midweek.If AK wanted Colback in it should have been at the expense of Watson.The writing was on the wall for me when I saw the team sheet.Happy with the team apart from that midfield pairing.It worries me Karanka didn't see that from the Birmingham game and I'm one of his biggest fans eh Skeg 😉 Didn't go to the game but I'd be interested to know how many times Fox or Hefele even got close to the halfway line with the ball.I'll guess not many due to the fact Colback and Watson were so deep tussling with each other for the ball.You have to get out and push teams back or they will just dominate you

10.) 01 Sep 2018 23:01:19
Thing is perks geddy has the energy and thinking to get forward as well as doing his defensive duties.
So his replacement is easy? Bridcutt,who karanka praises for h8s performance against Newcastle,
Then drops him for colback,whoes a great passer and forward thinking with a magnificent turn of pace over one yard.
Karankas got it wrong, but at least you know he won't disappoint or surprise us.

Absolutely pointless in Maranakis publicly backing Krankie. It usually only means 'the manager will be sacked after the next loss'.

I wouldn't say he's worked wonders, Ff. We're no better under O'neill than we was with krankie. We still look like an average, mid-table championship team.
