Having read reports on Saturday's game in Wolverhampton's press they are delighted with their win. Wolves regard it as a huge win, and a big win. As I saw with Wolves play they gave us respect in the first half, less so in the second. Most teams when they play us say that they expect to get something from the game. After if they get a result they are over the moon, so don't think we are not improving, we are.


1.) 18 Sep 2017 16:21:38
I think we have improved in some ways but lacking so much in defence plus I noticed that yeah we like to play it on the ground but spend half of it going backwards don't seem to be able to move the ball quickly sometimes I also think Eric should get in the team , one thing that did puzzle me we played one upfront at home which seemed negative while wolves played three upfront

2.) 18 Sep 2017 16:23:53
If I was any other championship team about to play us I would think they have some decent players going forward and have a goal in them but they are crap at the back and vulnerable at set pieces. Full backs that love to getting forward but can't defend for toffee.
We are a team that has improved as a squad from last season and are sorting things out off the pitch but I suspect teams are hardly quaking in their boots at the thought of playing us.

3.) 18 Sep 2017 21:07:31
how can you say there improving.they lose and that's improvement. goals against will be like a cricket score end of season.face the facts,they are not improving.they can't score.cant defend,and can't fathom out mw,s tactics plan.

4.) 18 Sep 2017 22:12:28
Won 4 Lost 4. Should have lost to Millwall, but should have beat Barnsley. How many times in the past when we were not fighting relegation did we out play teams but drew or lost. Like RR said they are all tough games. Defending is poor but Warburton's more attack minded, but hopefully he will sort the defence out so they are more organised, plenty of games left to do it.

5.) 19 Sep 2017 12:07:18
True bright. Plenty of time. Consolidation this season.

6.) 19 Sep 2017 13:12:45
Typical of a v tight league. Not much to choose between most teams so games not likely to be dominated either way. Stay calm and enjoy the tension :/

Received a message from a reliable friend of mine who works from Hampden park that we are looking at more Scottish players. He also confirms that Jason Cummings is a absolute Head Banger, wonder what antics he will get up to on the park.


1.) 19 Jun 2017 16:56:06
Looking at, and getting?

2.) 19 Jun 2017 20:44:53
1951 Have a look at our new strikers antics in a wrestling match with some Scottish professional grappler. Very funny but I'm not sure it's very professional to risk putting your back out whilst arsing around unless he's going to pay the club his wages back whilst he's out of action due to self inflicted injuries. Warbo and the club captain Cohen need to have a quiet word ( or even some loud ones) in his shell like ear about growing g up a bit!

3.) 19 Jun 2017 21:45:08
Too right. acting like a big time Charlie before he's actually done anything. will he go the same way as pat? pato was and is a quality player with massive potential but his social life got in the way just like a certain mr mcgugan.

4.) 19 Jun 2017 21:01:26
If you try to tame some players, you risk losing the very thing that makes the player that they are, therefore losing their effectiveness.

Here's to a clean slate and a promising season!

7.) 20 Jun 2017 08:30:25
Cloughie bought some players that other teams wouldn't touch with a barge post. Just look at a certain Kenny Burns who was an absolute terrier but at the time that was what Forest needed in the team. So if we buy players that are not in the mold of an angel but as a little devil then WB has a plan so let's get behind him and not criticized the players that he is buying.

8.) 20 Jun 2017 09:25:29
lol Stokey, that really made me chuckle, are we going to refer to him on here as 'Cum Dog' from now on? :)

Great to see players enjoying themselves and bonding, it's no worse than we used to do in our living room as kids! (Sorry Mum) .

Knowing our luck Mr Cummings and his left foot that can "open a tin of beans" will probably slip on the kitchen floor and severe his toe and take on the Matty Fryatt Number 7 role on the treatment table?

13.) 20 Jun 2017 18:50:02
Don't get me wrong fellow reds I wouldn't want to knock the spirit out of our "cumdog" just don't do anything too reckless and knacker his back or something! Mind you I used to wince every time Earnshaw did a somersault when he scored! We need characters in the team certainly! As you say you wouldn't take liberties with Big Larry and Kenny but Cloughie channelled that energy and notoriety to positive effect. It's called man management and that was Cloughies genius!

14.) 20 Jun 2017 19:07:03

Very loosely connected to Earnies somersault celebrations and Jason "Cumdog" Cummins antics I was reminded of an old Police colleague of mine who I will refer to by his first name only Darren to spare his blushes, who was a laugh a minute. Apart from being a talented impressionist (his John Wayne was faultless even down to the Dukes distinctive walk), he was a natural comedian.

I remember doing traffic duty on Noel Street one Goose Fair afternoon when I heard roars of laughter and looked to see kids pointing and there was Darren walking through the crowd in full Police uniform but instead of his Police helmet he had a huge Police traffic cone wedged tightly on his head. He was saying (to general uproar) "well, that's the last time I try to give a 6 foot 4 bodybuilder a parking ticket! " He actually was selected to go for an audition at RADA in London and was doing very well until it came to the performing arts bit.

The other candidates were doing amazing acrobatics with running up the walls and gymnastic springs etc When his turn came Darren (who was of portly build) walked on stage, placed his jacket down, did a ponderous forward roll on it, stood up and in front of the incredulous judges spread his arms and said "Ta-daaa"! Needless to say he failed the audition. But in terms of laughs RADA s loss was our gain. A great guy and its a real bonus to have such characters in your team.



10 May 2017 12:49:59
To some this is a none story, but as yet has mileage. Some years ago 1973 to be exact a personal friend of mine was involved with the proceedings of a match on the 8th October at the Baseball ground, between Derby v Sunderland in the League cup. I was present with a work mate who was nuts about Derby, me solid Forest. Derby scored 2 first half goals and played Sunderland of the park. At The start of the second half out came Sunderland but Derby took the field late. As the half ticked by it was evident something was different as Sunderland took total control and scored two second half goals and Derby were lucky to get a draw, half way through the half I said to my mate that something has gone off. Seeing my personal friend days later I asked what the hell had gone off, he said at half time one hell of a ding dong but I dare not say otherwise I, am for it. Clough at this time was at odds with Longson who had Offered Clough and Taylor more money to stay. On 13 October Derby played Man. Utd away and two days later both of them had left. To this day my friend will not say what went on but believe me he said it was explosive. One day he will say. As their are still people around, who are still around its no dice. Involved that night were two ex forest players Newton and Hinton and two future players McGovern and Gemmill. I push as hard as I dare.


1.) 10 May 2017 14:29:52
Maybe they just had a crappy second half and he's been pulling your todger for the past 1000 years, as a Derby fan would. The Reds have been a different team either side of half time all season.



13 Jan 2017 23:14:54
Not many know this but hopefully the press may want to confirm this one day that their was offers of buy outs from 1 a consortium lead by a player 2 the Greek guy 3 a big drinks company who own a bundesliga club 4 now the yanks . Are all four trying to screw wazzock or is their one common denominator . Yes their have been 4 fact, this season so far . I think wazzock wants Β£50 mill plus the sale of players he brought into the club, but the players are the club so what are you buying for Β£50mill . Don't tell me it's crap it's true . FACT.


1.) 13 Jan 2017 23:34:32
On the basis there is little value in the assets other than the contracted playing staff then for Β£50m you are buying a dream and a dwindling cash flow of gate receipts. Seller price based on average historic gates of circa 23000. Vote with your feet and reduce the gate to 12000 equals half the price which gives Casino Man very little wiggle room as he is never going to buy his way out the league?



20 Dec 2016 17:41:53
Various suggestions doing the rounds, always thought Fawaz family would ask for more at the final stages. Fans suspicions coming up to the mark . I can see J J Moores group dropping out as did Frank Clarke and Red Bull also, l can see this going badly wrong, players leaving and dropping down to division 1 .

If that happened Fawaz would lose one hell of a lot of money and be worse off instead of accepting a good offer from J J Moores. You have made a right mess of it Fawaz, l hope you lose big time.


1.) 20 Dec 2016 18:10:15
Dont talk crap its as good as done we just have to wait.

Dont count your chickens guys. Well till all signed and ink dried. Until then presume nothing.

7.) 20 Dec 2016 22:44:09
For john jay moores to start up a new company to facilitate loans given to the club would surely mean paperwork has already been signed? would any business man who's made as much as him do this without something contractually being in place?

8.) 21 Dec 2016 06:32:32
"Various suggestions doing the rounds. " so basically someone mentioned it on that well known reliable news site Twitter?

9.) 21 Dec 2016 10:38:24
How about the takeover starting on Jan 1st, would make sense. Why take over now and have to pay the players wages and club bills for December. Everything looks like it's in place and ready to go.

10.) 21 Dec 2016 12:59:14
The club shop have slashed the price of Christmas decorations. Top buy is the Fawaz Fairy for the top of the tree to celebrate his last Christmas at the club! Surely a Collectors item? Pity he he did not complete the sale 5th November and then they could have all gone on the bonfire!

A very close friend of mine is shortly flying to Athens to give a lecture on Altzymas in football . All the Greek teams will have representatives present, so l hope he has a chance to speak to our owner or his chief representative. Don't think for one minute any headline news, but you never know. Sorry to Rotherham but today is not just your day. Improving our goal difference today. YOU REDS.




20 Sep 2018 08:37:41
A win on Saturday and we wonder what all the fuss was about, all the criticism towards AK was just banter, leg pulling etc., wasn't it . We are starting to get a clearer picture of what the club is looking for, confidence in commitment with each other, knowing the movement in natural play as well as design. Now AK has got a clearer picture he now knows who are his main stay players, think next loan period a few will be gone, even if we thought they were her for the long run.


1.) 20 Sep 2018 10:19:04
51 sorry mate but some of the criticism was to be said doesn't matter how good a manager at any team in the world you will get criticised if a or any fan doesn't think your doing your job that's the same in any walk of life and yes a lot of banter he's got is team now so no more swapping and changing unless injuries great display of football last night especially second half and plenty of work rate we just need to get a run of some wins going and we will be on our way

2.) 20 Sep 2018 16:31:33
The thing is Skegs there is negative criticism and positive criticism and with professional footballers and managers all paying lip-service to their rich agents, it's not easy to get through to many of them, but by introducing lots of new experienced faces (the old guys as people kept calling them at one point) pitch and club discipline has improved quickly. Grabban for example needed positive re-inforcement from AK rather than destructive criticism and that's what he got. If players are giving their all then you cannot ask for more, but you can praise them for what they do well, and that has a positive not negative effect.If players are no good then they should not be on the pitch.



19 Sep 2018 12:21:05
Glad we are not playing QPR until 22 December by that time we should be sorted. Never lost to them at home! Would be nervous if we were playing them now. Should we expect instant success from a team of strangers, remarkable if it did, but l think now we should be scoring more, nobody with poise when shooting except perhaps Lolley. The ball should be their friend, not something we desperate to get rid of. We should have the measure of Sheff Weds, but only a 1/ 0, that will do for me. Clean sheets, that, s what my wife insists on, is she trying to tell me something?


1.) 19 Sep 2018 13:24:00

Don't have a go at me, l have a confession to make. I was at a loose end on Saturday and l went to, how softly can l say this, l went to Meadow lane! It cost me Β£16 but l saw 6 goals, that will never happen across the river. Very poor defending attributed to this score. My god they are a miserable lot, not like us, we are all happy with the state of things, aren't we? The thing what really pi--ed me off, was the prat with the drum, could not hear my radio for score updates. Sorry will not be going back we moan about out wing backs should see there's, did not see once they headed the ball. Poor old Vaughan, did not get on the pitch as a sub bad move for him.

How about you?



15 Sep 2018 07:44:37
We all know what we saw the back end of last season, a side totally devoid of confidence. Possibly AK, s own doing, sometimes it was hard to sit and watch, and so frustrating. A radical clear out, many favourites gone or going it, s happened we move on. So with all these new faces it will take time to gel, new partnerships forming on the pitch . AK is here to stay till at least we are not in serious trouble in the league. its happened with us before we all hope it's going to happen again. We listen to the pundits in the media and l feel they enjoy knocking us, we'll when our time comes and we play the football we deserve they will say they all knew we will come good. You know we will!


1.) 15 Sep 2018 08:07:09
I have one contention with your post.

How can new partnerships form with the chopping and changing.?

Yes a lot of players have come in but but Aitor should have used pre season to find the best players in his opinion, give them time to gel by trying to start them every game, only using subs for fresh legs, tactical change, or injury. Should a sub be far better than the player he has replaced the sub should start and the replaced player be the sub. That is what he should have done and be doing.

Aitor is like a kid in a sweet shop, i want this, no i want that, no, no i want that, give me, give me.

2.) 15 Sep 2018 09:01:12
Well let's see if the geling starts today against a ordinary struggling to score Swansea

3.) 15 Sep 2018 09:26:57
After 7 matches last season we were in 8th place with the same number of points as 5th place on 12 points under Warbo's kids and new time to gel players , Leeds were top deja vu , we had played Leeds , Middlesbrough , Brentford , Millwall ,Wednesday, Barnsley and Sunderland , in our team for the 7th match , the kids Jordan Smith ,Joe Worrall ,Osborne ,Dowell , Breraton and the new players Bridcutt , Clough ,Mckay , Murphy , I might be wrong but isn't it the coach's job to get the best out of players and find a blend of youth and experience ? I don't think we were far away from having a side to challenge for the top 6 without the wholesale changes Mr Karanka's ( not Scorchio ) has bought in , I think you lose a sense of belonging with all the changes , hope we win today and I hope we finish in the top 6 and hope redinexile is a told you so football genius

People keep banging on about how pre season should have sorted out our best 11 players.
Fact is so many players have arrived after pre season and they just aren’t match fit .as usual our injury curse has struck already.
So yes it will take time to get the squad up to an equal fitness so that they are all up for selection.
We will be fine.

7.) 15 Sep 2018 10:55:30
Lol trentender Mr karanka said I will get all my business done early he did but as now found out that some of the players he first bought in are not upto it hence panic buying freebies hence why not match fit hence should of done homework earlier hence simples nobody to blame but himself

8.) 15 Sep 2018 10:55:31
Skegsjay as has been said We all want the team to well, but i thought we had begun the gelling process against WBA, then again against NC.

9.) 15 Sep 2018 11:08:29
Stags geling is just another name for. Excuse first of all how do you get eleven players to gel when there swapped every week not rocket science get your best 11 players on the pitch firstly and keep them playing every week not the players that cost the most players that are in form and as for this trash of impact subs if you were 2-3 goals up in a game you wouldn't need a impact stop being so bloody defensive get the team going out for the win and not a bloody bore draw

10.) 15 Sep 2018 11:16:00
Remember karanka saying pre season he was looking to add 7/8 players to his squad. He's added 17 lol.
Now doesn't know his bed side. And feels obligated to play some of these players because he signed them.
He's caused his own problems.

11.) 15 Sep 2018 11:21:33
Trentender You have not understood what people like myself mean by, in pre season Aitor should have realised what his beast is.

What it means is:

With the players he had available IN pre season to form an Opinion on what are his Best Players.

Once he has done that he then makes them his priority, trying to get them to gel. Off course players with little or no playing time are not going to be in his best team.

The rest of the players are then trained to do the same things playing wise as his prefered players, so once they are fully fit they slip straight into the team, when called upon in a seamless way.

All of the newer players once again are allowed to get fit and trained in the same manner as everyone else, once again once called upon they fit seamlessly into the team.

That way everyone is given time to come up to speed both fitness wise, and playing wise, no one is rushed to play. Players are subbed for various reasons, if they do well enough they get to keep their place as a incentive and the subbed player is then the sub next game, if they come on they have the incentive to do well.

Hope we did not get involved in a bidding war for Marriott,but in one way hopefully Derby have paid top dollar for a still raw player. In another way hope Chris Evans did not get any where near his asking price.Disgraceful that Evans walked away from Mansfield,lending Cummings to him is not where l sit.
