How much time do we give this current manager, staff and team? I travel home and away, there is no improvement. Warburton is a soft touch, appeases his favourites, derides the obvious senior players.
This season started as a new exciting era, Fawaz gone, new owner, new chairman blah, blah.

The feel good factor has long gone.
I don't want to hear anymore " work in progress"
I don't see any.

ff79 please do not reply, cannot stomach anymore of your biased bull 💩.

Have it your way mate,sack him all the staff,mcparland,
Start again halfway through a season, panic buy in January results don't improve,sack him and his staff,panic buy ,that don't work again.
Some sort of pattern here?oh well we 're bound to find a top manager eventually?.
Then before you know it, we need new owners,they're crapp.
Where have I heard this before🤔🤔🤔

Red one at this time of year,when we all sit down to Christmas dinner then turn the telly on to listen to the kings speech"this time next year we'll all be millionaires".
Well this time next year we'll be a better team and a better football club.
You know it makes sense.🍹🍹🍹

3.) 17 Dec 2017 23:34:08

The bottom line is that the current management team are only halfway through rebuilding the squad. We only have 14 players worth keeping
next summer based on performance,or recently signed. We need to park sentiment and get rid of 12 senior players by next summer who have consistently underperformed or are regularly injured. We have 7 youngsters to step up and 7 new ones to sign to have a 25 man outfield squad required to compete.

So in answer to your question May 2019 because it's the quality of the historic squad not the manager that is the problem!

Well Jonny, I mean red one its like red rag to a bull, merry Xmas have a good one and try to keep the faith and don't forget to leave a carrot?
After all Rudolf is a red 🎅🍺🍻🍷🍹😲😲

The OP here is an unfortunate example of how the sad side of modern football has affected some fans. They expect results instantly and become impatient if a team who avoided relegation last year isn’t challenging for the playoffs.

Honestly, please, anyone reading this who feels MW should leave, think for a moment. What benefit is there by starting again? What advantage will be gained by taking us back 12months?

Warburton inherited this squad of players. He’s not even close to having the team he would want to ply eever Saturday. This man deserves the time to build something no one else was ever allowed to.

Enjoy us not being in a relegation fight and smile with optimism for what will come with time.

6.) 18 Dec 2017 02:02:42
He just need more time he can't do everything in one transfers I stand by MW he not doing great but our club looks 10x better then it was in the last few seasons
I'll be happy just finishing anywhere in top half of the table

7.) 18 Dec 2017 06:02:27
Let’s take this out of football.

Say you want to completely redecorate and refurbish your house. Now if your in the same situation as most people you can’t do it all at once because you can’t afford the cost. So you space it out over a couple of years. Now you might think ok I’ll start by getting some new sofas in but you can’t get the new ones in without getting rid of the old ones because you don’t have room. So you get 1 piece in at a time until you fully replace it with the furniture you want. It might look out of sorts while you’re in the middle of doing it but at the end you think yeah it was worth it. Now imagine if you run out of money halfway through doing it? Your room is a mix of two different types of furniture and looks a mess, that’s just your lounge, what happens if you started other rooms too? Imagine if you got kicked out halfway through? Whoever’s in there would have to start again, with different tastes and different ideas.

8.) 18 Dec 2017 06:04:03
Yes give him more time to buy more didi men from Scotland who can play attractive football in the centre of the field but struggle with the EFL physical game?
Surly the board must be concerned about giving him money to spend?

9.) 18 Dec 2017 07:26:50
Ward is getting the cold shoulder treatment now so it seems. Warburton seems to have his click of yes men. Ward is the sort of player we need on the pitch. He is buzy pacey gets stuck in and can score a goal. Murphy is like an overladen bus pulling away from a bustop but plays every week. Mckay gets subbed in strange circumstances and does not figure when circumstances are made for him. Cummjngs has not been given a proper chance i his best position. Cohen and velios are taking up vital squad positions. Harsh words re Chris you might think but did anyone notice last game of season he pulled up injured near the end. Time on his playing should have been halted and rewarded with development coaching at the club. So can warburton manage situations and players? Not really so the origanal poster has a point. Look at Burnley under Dyche a manager who most ln here did not want a few years ago. He sets his side up simply and firstly hard to beat. thoughts???

10.) 18 Dec 2017 09:08:18
Red 1, this is exactly the reason we are where we are, no patience from some people. The guy hasn't even been here a year yet. A manager is not just for Christmas eh:).

We are improved on last season, that is progress whether you think so or not. I think if people can wait till the end of the season at the very least, hopefully have a good Jan window and strengthen where we need to. He's bringing in youngsters for the long term with a different style of play, calm, breathe and give it time.

I'm sure everyone was happy with a mid table finish at the start of the season, what's changed?

11.) 18 Dec 2017 09:58:13
Ginger you do not say why ward is frozen out. Velios frozen out mckay not utilised, cummings not playing. Ward is one hell of a player pace and guts. You can say what you like but warburton is no motivator, poor squad management and clueless in defence organisation. Please watch the Bristol goals particularly the first. Formation retreating no tackle just an invitation to shoot. Rest my case.

12.) 18 Dec 2017 11:26:07
As I keep saying Warbo has no plan B.
He want the players to adapt to his pretty tippy happy football which is great when it does work but when it doesn't he can't adapt the style of play to suit individual strengths.
My way or the highway tactics costing us games and I can't see a great run with the up and coming fixtutes

13.) 18 Dec 2017 17:27:34
Why is it always about time and patience on this site hmmm?
The man is a clueless harlequin who is no better than the Door Knocker Salesman of old selling tea clothes.
Some people on here claim the breadman is intelligent 🤓.
He’s stubborn single minded and doesn’t know how to adapt his team.
Back in the day if my officer led me to the frontline with the Warburton tactics and cavalier attitude myself and fellow comrades would not be here. thanks heavens he is only a PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL MANAGER.

14.) 18 Dec 2017 17:52:33
Omrifit- do you gloss first or leave it until the end? 😂

15.) 18 Dec 2017 17:53:08
Had Rangers fans never mentioned “no plan B” - there wouldn’t be a single person on this forum continually going on about it 😂.

There often is a plan B. A change of shape, personnel or how we play. If you can’t see that during a game *Specsavers joke incoming* .

16.) 18 Dec 2017 18:23:01
I think he needs a plan C.
Plans A and B don't seem to be working.

17.) 19 Dec 2017 11:53:27
Rutland, I was actually replying to the original poster Red One(ok I put Red 1), where he is talking about how much longer we give the manager etc. not your post:)

I agree, it would be good to see Ward playing, he gives everything and is a real battler. But in answer to your question, I can only speculate, but maybe others are playing better on the training ground or he is not 100% fit. We could second guess all day, does he ever get asked these things in interviews? other managers do.

18.) 19 Dec 2017 12:01:11
LDN Red, completely agree, its hilarious.

Can we setup up a forum xmas bingo with, 'tippy tappy football', 'no plan B' etc I'm sure we will all be shouting 'House' on Sunday morning.

Maybe someone can define a plan B that doesn't involve changing personnel or formations both of which he has done already.

19.) 19 Dec 2017 20:16:04
Maybe we should teach our team where Row Z is as that's where the opposition cannot score from when we do not have possession?
Simple Plan? Simples!

I propose ff 79 as the new Nottingham Forest manager in the unlikely event that the current manager is relieved of his duties.
I am sure he will maintain to play the wrong players at the wrong time, in the wrong positions.
I am sure his post match interviews, will include "work in progress, fine margins and we go again".

Anyway I'm looking forward to Saturday.
Catch the train,meet up with my family and mates,have a few beers,walk down to the famous city ground and watch my favourite football team.
Beats working.

6.) 28 Dec 2017 11:48:18
Like it red. 😅😅

7.) 28 Dec 2017 12:52:07
Just imagine an armchair fan as a manager, he would prove us all wrong with blinding tactical knowledge and his pep talk would surely enlighten the players to be highly motivated.

8.) 28 Dec 2017 12:55:20
Do you have virtual reality ff79?
Must be amazing to see a game, have a beer with mates all from the comforts of your home.
You are Warbuton through and through lol. 🤗

Being beat 3-0 at home by a team near you in the table is Serious, however some only show up when we lose, that seems like they are happy when we do.

Someone even moaned when we got a draw away to Preston who are good at home.

There is nothing wrong with a moan when we lose, but why do they hide when we win?

4.) 26 Dec 2017 21:30:07
The real fans show up be it win lose or draw.
You think given time hovis will improve grey?
If so how time do you propose you give him?
He isn't the man to take us forward.
We need and deserve a proven championship manager who has the ability adapt a team to meet any opposition and who knows how to bring the best of of our squad.

5.) 26 Dec 2017 21:36:38
Because when we win, it is more luck than judgement. I have witnessed one convincing win.

6.) 26 Dec 2017 21:58:48

I agree real fans show up win, lose or draw but some only show when we lose.

Given time, who knows, i would like to think so. With this league 2 wins, or 2 loses changes your league position no end.

I think it is only fair to only get rid if facing relegation, really facing relegation not just it being near.

Some want Douglas, wherever he has been he has done no better than Warburton, Billy with us was always the nearly man.

It would be great to have someone certain to turn us around, but do they exist?

McClaren with us was useless, with Derby he had them fighting for the play offs.

I only use him as a example of how a manager got different results from two different clubs, how many mangers do well everywhere they go, and how many would join us?

7.) 26 Dec 2017 22:01:54
Well we lose more than we win so this is bound to happen?

8.) 26 Dec 2017 22:11:35
Perks 13

You know that how?

It could happen, but something might just click aswell.

9.) 27 Dec 2017 10:26:08
Grey I like your posts because I can see you wear your ♥ on your sleeve and you are a real fan.
Your post are logical and a fair assumption of what is happening.
Me and others see past the tripe Warburton says and does and we just vent frustration on here.
Some just don't see either side of the coin and seem to make excuses each time we lose saying we did this and that etc even though we lose?
Keep up he posts grey.



21 Dec 2017 22:18:26
I trust there is a grand plan put in place for

It seems Velious was never going to feature, Lichaj pending. Now Traore and Vaughn out of favour.

The manager declines to explain the reasons.

I assume it must be cost cutting. I will be interested to see the calibre of the replacements.

Red one

1.) 21 Dec 2017 23:14:45
Good point red one and if it is cost cutting,it should be markinasis explaining it to the fans not warbo?
Just a thought?

Hope he gets a testimonial, I know he’s had massive injury problems, and should have played more. To comeback from 3 cruciate ligaments is impossible. I played for a Mansfield team,in its formative years with Rod Arnold in goal, mine popped on a muddy pitch,studs stuck in the mud,twisted to clear a corner, the most inoculatious of challenges. Still suffering today.
Cohen is Forest though and through. I’d wager he’d put in a better performance with his dodgy knees than this current crop of show ponies.
Two years too late ,shame on you.

This is the travesty of this season. It was a new dawn,proper administration off the field,supporters felt engaged again .
Majority of fans,me included,thought Warburton was an excellent appointment, along with a slow burn,patient season,where the team would grow into his fast passing mentality.
Play offs were never expected, mid table would be a positive step.
However, I cannot see any improvement from day one, the team selections are bizarre,experienced players ignored,young players out of position,blah,blah.
This manager has the players to turn this around,but I think he will stick to his mantra. This will be his ultimate downfall.
I think it will be ground zero again.

A load of rubbish you say. Get your arse out of your armchair, get to the game tomorrow and witness the rubbish first hand. Leave your radio at home, sit in the stand and see what we see. If you still think we're wrong, fair enough. I’d have a lot more respect for your comments.
