Talk sport news saying that Karanka could lose his job today.


1.) 10 Jan 2019 08:54:43
Something hasn’t been right behind the scenes for weeks now.The Chairman didn’t look too happy at the Leeds game,even if we did win,the pressure was there for all to see.The owner is known for chopping and changing managers at Olympiacos and after spending a lot of money at Forest and not getting instant success it looks like he will shortly be doing the same here.

2.) 10 Jan 2019 09:06:30
Just heard that myself.
Future uncertain and apparently he may not be taking training this morning?
Statement claims he's not been sacked but Krankie is unable to comment?

3.) 10 Jan 2019 09:23:49
There had been talk he might lose his job before the Leeds game, but after beating Leeds then lose his job is not only stupid, but crass, at least wait for a bad performance or to lose a game. We are still basking in the glory of beating a old foe, and a top team this season.



30 Dec 2018 22:15:08
We are going to get nowhere with the Portuguese flops in the side. Goncalves is bad enough, but Dias has to be the worst player I’ve seen in the Garibaldi alongside Dumitru and Silenzi. Carvalho has talent I’m sure, but somehow just does the wrong thing at the wrong time.


1.) 31 Dec 2018 11:37:19
Kazami for me the worst



30 Oct 2018 22:15:25
Jorge Mendes helps Wolves to the Premier League but looks like helping Forest to become a laughing stock. These Portuguese look an awful FFP gamble, we need to return them to their respective clubs ASAP. As for the one we have bought, perhaps we can get most of our transfer fee back from a rich club in Greece?


1.) 31 Oct 2018 08:45:56
There were 9 poor non portuguese players out there so let's not blame them everytime. Dias was the only threat and covered every blade of grass, only player worthy of his place.

2.) 31 Oct 2018 09:06:06
AK says he is embarressed and disgusted with the complacencey shown by his players. AK disrespected the fans and Burton by the changes he made. That was a disjointed mismash and a great oppurtunity to get to a quarter final. Gonvlaves and dias are poor and soudani ineffective and looks injury prone. I could say more but it gets boring. The whole set up was second rate.

3.) 31 Oct 2018 16:01:25
Mr Karanka as Cloughie once said "get your hands out yer pockets!!"

4.) 31 Oct 2018 16:00:48
Rutland. He played a similar team against Stoke, so I don't think it was disrespectful to Burton or the fans. I think it was a terrible error of judgement to play the 2 Portuguese lads and the central midfielders who play the same way against a high pressing team like Burton who were going to get in our faces. Not the type of game for 'flair' players and players that always look to play backwards or sideways.

5.) 31 Oct 2018 17:46:21
The problem is when we played Newcastle & Stoke they did the same as us by changing their players. Our Nigel did what his dad would have done and put his strongest 11 players out, who by the way were playing their 4th game in 10 days. Well done. Thoroughly deserved victory.

6.) 31 Oct 2018 18:46:11
Here, here. 👋👋👋👍👍👍.



04 Sep 2018 21:55:05
Team spirit and a feeling of “we are in it together” bring teams through like Brentford, exceptional quality like Wolves and Fulham saw them home. It’s early days for our team, but sadly I see neither.


1.) 05 Sep 2018 08:29:49
Rf - you missed out the one factor that gets you promotion whether you have millions to spend or not - Neil Warnock as manager, and to think we could have had him .

2.) 06 Sep 2018 17:35:16
I agree with Warnock
Oh and by the way, he is English.
I for one do not rate the obsession with foreign managers.
We have good managers in this country.



26 Jan 2017 19:49:28
Forest approaching Nigel Clough.


1.) 26 Jan 2017 20:53:16
Can not see this happening but would be delighted if it does. He would provide stability and I know that all the fans would be behind him.

2.) 27 Jan 2017 04:31:40
He is far too old and hasn't played in years! Typical fawaz signing, I don't see how he would get in our starting 11. (Joking for all you idiots out there)

Welcome home Martin, though I do worry it’s about 15 years too late




12 Jan 2019 16:44:41
I’ve travelled to watch this rubbish. Down to 9 men, disgusting performance.




10 Jan 2019 13:40:41
The Karanka situation is very similar to what eventually happened at Boro with a disconnect between manager and club hierarchy. I can only imagine it is regarding transfers. I think the club have backed him well, he should get on and manage what we have. The fans are generally behind him despite his low win percentage rate. So let’s put this nonsense to bed and all start to pull in the same direction.


1.) 10 Jan 2019 14:07:19
If it is regarding transfers, and the manager feels some players need moving on, and some more need to come in before we can be a genuine top six team i can understand his being peeved if the owner will not bring in who the manager wants, but is demanding a top six finish.

2.) 10 Jan 2019 14:51:47
Being allowed to bring in 17 new players is a huge sign of support from the owner. Is it wrong to think that he should be achieving more after that? Unfortunately AK hasn’t endeared himself perhaps with quality of quite a few of them. Perhaps the real truth is that quite simply we don’t win enough games?

3.) 10 Jan 2019 15:04:57
Or quite simply he's not good enough 😁

4.) 10 Jan 2019 15:12:10
Think your probably right Nick,and the owners have filled the city ground attracting a new generation,but the home form is not living up to our away form and could be one of the major factors if he were to go.
He seems to be able to win the odd game,but has never put a run of wins together.
Keep wanting and expecting more players is not always the answer

5.) 10 Jan 2019 15:30:54
26, I could not agree more, the manager has been fully backed so far by the club but if players that are available are better than we already have, and will not cost too much we should get them.

In truth for me if the club was more bothered about win ratios than progress then the manager should have been sacked before we got to January.

He like Big Sam devides fans due to his teams playing style, if the club will no longer back him to bring in 3, or 4 new players there is no trust in him so why keep him.

Like someone else said either sack him, or back him, and do it now.

6.) 10 Jan 2019 15:31:33
Nick who’s to say all the players bought in were his choice?

7.) 10 Jan 2019 15:36:59
In this day and age no manager brings in all the players,just the way it is

8.) 10 Jan 2019 15:59:25
I agree 799 but how can a manager be sacked based on someone one elses players being brought in?

9.) 10 Jan 2019 16:19:15
They know how a club is run when they take the job on and to me the one thing that let's karanka down his is lack of tactical know-how.
It's the same system week in and out and sometimes,especially at home,it's been crying out for change.
Wolves got promotion by employing a coach,man city and Chelsea and most top clubs do the same

10.) 10 Jan 2019 21:52:48
They might not of all been his choice Sutton but he his getting paid to do a job and turn the players into better players some he as some he hasn't at the end of the day the buck stops with him that's business and football now a day's I'm sure he will be able to find work somewhere else probably team up with doggie freedman 😁😂🤣



07 Jan 2019 20:28:30
Looking at wolves tonight makes me think that’s a good blue print for getting to, and surviving in the Premier League.
1. Good Manager
2. Backing from the board
3. A great crop of Portuguese talent.
4. A good modern ground
5. Great support

How many of those ingredients, apart from great support, do we honestly have? Has our Portuguese experiment failed? Just a thought.


1.) 07 Jan 2019 20:36:05
Nobody can say the board hasn’t given backing

2.) 07 Jan 2019 20:41:06
It took wolves three managers for the Portuguese experiment to work and two years.

3.) 07 Jan 2019 23:10:29
Well said Ff799 it takes 2 seasons generally to get a good squad of players to get promotion.

Wolves had a better core of players to start with while Forest went shopping in Scotland and had too many past it journeymen in the squad from the Fawaz era.

AK has started from a lower base and has transformed the quality of the squad initially to avoid relegation to save the owner's investment purchase of the club and then recruit this summer to push for promotion. Hence, Wolves changing managers to get the best out of the resources.

We can all see the shortcomings in the squad but so far so good in terms of a REALISTIC timeframe for success. The resident kicking horse Benny Osborn has now spoken the owners words about promotion aspirations and " the consensus" from most of our competitors fans is their fear that AK will get backed again this Jan to push on for promotion.

29,500 shared their appreciation on New Year's Day of the managers efforts so far so for the first time in a generation backing the manger again this Jan is our best chance ever of going up.

The Basil Fawlty Brigade will no doubt spout more hot air but flying kites always crash and burn! 🤐😴🤣


4.) 07 Jan 2019 23:35:47
Good point red, I do think however that these next three games should bring maximum points and looking at the fixtures all the top six are going to drop points as they are playing one another.
It's time to put some wins together. end of Jan we should be top six.

5.) 08 Jan 2019 00:35:07
One difference is neves was awesome from day one not 13 mill on someone who might be good in a few seasons time

6.) 08 Jan 2019 10:38:02
Neves had played nearly 60 games for Porto before he arrived and when you say hit the ground running?,wolves had better players around him than Calvalho has,his stats are 8 goals in 58 games, not as good as some think,keep the faith with Calvalho he's better than most are giving him credit for,he doesn't have a helda Costa playing alongside him and we play a very negative game compared to wolves,all factors when you try making comparisons

7.) 08 Jan 2019 11:14:02
Agreed regarding Carvalho Ff but I think that he and the team would benefit from a little less game time.

8.) 08 Jan 2019 11:18:21
The way the manager sets up means he has to play,no one else in the squad to do that role,there lies the problem



04 Jan 2019 18:17:37
Please let the Goncalves rumour be true. If he goes back to his parent club can Dias please hold his hand at the airport?

I don't care if he plays from now until the end of the season- he should never be offered another contract at our club. Thanks Matty but no thanks, your time here is up.

It's a smokescreen and it's getting beyond a joke now. The mystery group will try to buy the club only for it to fail at the last hurdle, then Fawaz blaming the abysmal running of the club on the prospective buyers "it was all out of my hands".
Yes Fawaz, we believe you. oh and the tooth fairy is real too.

JRS what a plonker comparing forest to Man Utd and Barcelona. In the case of Utd the value of the club far outweighs the debt. In our case our debt far outweighs the value of the club. All pretty schoolboy stuff to be honest.

Goncalves and Dias look awful, even Carvalho, if we are honest, has only played in patches. How could we have been duped so badly? Just because Wolves Portuguese experiment was a great success last season doesn’t mean to say ours will be. Surely these players were scouted? Or did we just sign them on the say so of the super agent? Their parent clubs must be laughing all the way to the bank, and 15 million for Carvalho? Really? Honestly, you couldn’t make it up, especially as Lolly is being touted about at only 10 million.

2 star of course it’s Karankas fault we have no bottle in the final third- it’s his team and he’s had the time and funds to put it right!
Sounds like we had slightly the better of it today but 1 league win so far this season about says it all really.
