As I've said before, Mr maranakis would you please come out and back karanka. I don't want any change now it's too late. back the manager, let him do his deals in January and let the fans know where they stand.


1.) 04 Jan 2019 10:22:11
Absolutely pointless in Maranakis publicly backing Krankie. It usually only means 'the manager will be sacked after the next loss'.

2.) 04 Jan 2019 12:56:12
I think theirs more to it. Our owner is determined to get rid of karanka. But his hands are currently tied because karanka as the backing of players and supporters.
But will this mean karanka isn't allowed to improve squad or even as a player like lolley sold against his wishes.
Sure we will find out either way within next week.

3.) 04 Jan 2019 13:11:03
What makes you think our owner is determind to get rid of Karanka? Surely if he was that determind he would be gone already?

4.) 04 Jan 2019 14:16:30
Red. If the owner wants rid of AK, he won't give a toss whether the players or the fans want him to stay.
He will just get rid.

5.) 04 Jan 2019 15:47:23
He would have got rid of him if he wanted to.

6.) 04 Jan 2019 17:23:04
Red. Please explain?

7.) 04 Jan 2019 20:28:44
I think some fans are still apprehensive due to the Fawaz era.
I believe AK was ready for the sack but I also believe Maranakis has backed off and is giving him time to push on after our support and the performance against the dirty.
Let's hope AK keeps the run going and make it impossible to sack him but our owner is very ambitious which we should be grateful of. . I think.
I just hope he isn't waiting for another loss to pull the trigger as that would be harsh especially if he included Chelsea

8.) 04 Jan 2019 22:42:24
Fa was bank balance. Just a feeling.
Due to all new appointments like DOF.
Possibly a new sporting director who happened to be a manager. The owners continued silence
And a week into January and their doesn't seem to be concrete rumours of new signings. When karanka had said he knew the 3/4 players he would like.

9.) 04 Jan 2019 22:57:24
It's a power struggle between marinakis and karanka,only one winner unless karanka backs down🤔🤔
Let's hope common sense prevails and we move on united,otherwise he'll be replaced

10.) 04 Jan 2019 23:54:17
The owner needs to realise that unlike the Greek league you can’t change managers 2-3 times a season and still win the league.last seasons teams all went with managers that had a full season,Warnock October the previous season,Fulham’s was there 2 1/2 seasons and wolves manager started end of May.

11.) 05 Jan 2019 23:29:53
Why would any serious owner feed fans insecurities by popping his head up above the parapet and making comment?
Just buy a ticket and be thankful you have a board and management team that actually know what they are doing?
I wonder which of the infamous 4 are going to bite first? 🐬🐬



02 Jan 2019 21:47:50
Jose anigo sporting director is he New manager awaiting in the wings.


1.) 02 Jan 2019 22:57:29
Stella for a year on me Skegs if that one turns out to be true.

2.) 02 Jan 2019 23:40:56
Thanks that will do me strange timing though.

3.) 03 Jan 2019 00:34:50
Not the best reviews from French fans.

4.) 03 Jan 2019 13:42:11
Skegsjay, if that happens can you see a load of French players joining us.?

5.) 03 Jan 2019 14:39:52
They aren't talking about him being the new manager, just the sporting director.

6.) 03 Jan 2019 15:05:47
799, If read Skegsjays post again you will notice he asks, even though it could be in jest could end up replacing our current manager.

7.) 03 Jan 2019 15:10:22
Perhaps he's getting a foot in the managerial door?

8.) 03 Jan 2019 17:28:38
One word 'WHY'



28 Dec 2018 00:28:14
Panic stations lol here it is forest lose at Millwall karanka is gone there's only one place this owner wants us to be and that's in the premiership that's why he bought karanka in to do a job exactly what the fans wanted nothing more nothing less I'm not keen on karanka as everyone knows but if he was doing his job I would back him he's been given the tools to do the job more than any other manager at forest and he is lacking to me I don't want to change yet another manager but as far as I'm concerned he's had a fair chance and in this owner I trust to make a 100 percent decision on what who or we need to take us back to the premiership so it's as simple as that.


1.) 28 Dec 2018 05:01:05
Good concise post skeg. 👍

2.) 28 Dec 2018 07:20:23
If that's true then it's very likely going to be adios.
Our record at the Den stinks.
We're probably going to need to be 3 goals up again to get a result cus as soon as Millwall get desperate and bring Morrison on then the aerial bombardment begins and we're done for.
We couldn't defend a 2 goal lead in the home fixture.

3.) 28 Dec 2018 08:34:05
In his interview after norwich he claimed not to care if they sack him. He said he has credentials for promotion and ut took 2 and a half years at boro to acheive. He keeos banging on about time as look at how good norwich are after bejng together for a year and a half. He said the same about Derby. Time is a commodity not afforded these days so when interviewed for the job and he saud I need 2 and a half years he would not have been appointed. Either that ir the goal posts have been moved or someone is lying. He should care aboit being sacked from the most beautiful club on this planet. Its not just a job where you get compo for failing. This typifies his pigheadedness, doing things his way or no way. Sticking with clowns and 3 amigo's.
We are on the brink of losing yet another manager or him changing and becoming a legend. He cannkt change his attitude or style so be prepared. Its his call but really like he says " i just don't care "

4.) 28 Dec 2018 08:44:10
I think you’ve said exactly what the majority are thinking skeggy-the owner wants the premiership, most fans want the same but I’m sad to say I just can’t see AK delivering. We do have some talent in the squad and we all know that we could do with a bit extra in places but you just need to make sure every player knows his role,is committed and play the game to your strengths. IMO AK is too stubborn and I don’t care how many years management experience or how many badges anyone has got some of his tactics and decisions would never have gained success or given the feeling of moving forward. I can’t break down an opposing teams tactics, tell pro players how to close a game down or how to or pick out every teams weak point but I’m a just a pint and a pie supporter, the manager should be doing that,and he isn’t doing it. The fans support has been fantastic this season (albeit with some help from the big man with a smart pricing structure) the backing from the owner seems to be great (we’ll never know exactly what’s going on behind the scenes) but we still crave for consistency and leadership. Fingers crossed for 2019 but my gut feeling says we won’t have the same manager for much of it.
Best wishes to everyone for the new year and here’s hoping for some great football and plenty to cheer about in 2019 👍

5.) 28 Dec 2018 09:01:26
Well put 2tone. It really is as simple as that.

6.) 28 Dec 2018 09:12:05
Nicely put 2tone.👍

7.) 28 Dec 2018 15:08:49
Maranakis then is the problem, you need at least two seasons to get out of this league, and lots who have gone up find themselves without the players to stay up. AK needs to left alone to get on with the job otherwise yet another trigger-happy owner will spoil our chances, and the silly merry-go-round will continue. We need to support the Team and AK, changing managers might win a few games, but the problems will still persist.

8.) 28 Dec 2018 16:00:51
Forest will win at Millwall. That's as concise as it gets!

Onward & Upward

9.) 28 Dec 2018 16:05:37
Its a fair point besred but whst if you have the wrong manager.

10.) 29 Dec 2018 15:54:14
No you don’t bsered, you need a squad full of pace and power, youth blended with experience and a gung ho attitude like Wolves and Fulham last year, Leeds and Norwich this.

Create chances and score goals. I’m fed up with 4 2 3 1, it’s like watching paint dry.



10 Nov 2018 21:51:12
Whatever happens top 8 come Xmas will be a good thing players will want to come to us and marankis will want to invest so so far so good we need another goal scorer no doubt about that we lose grabban we might as well give the rest of the season up I will also expect an attacking midfielder coming in so fingers crossed top 8 xmas.


1.) 10 Nov 2018 22:07:30
Skegs I think we have enough backup for Grabban with Murphy and Ansarifard. I would like to see cover at LB though to keep Robinson on his toes.

2.) 10 Nov 2018 22:23:40
After disagree sgetty goal scorers win you leagues and midfielders under karanka win you games defence is fine at the minute.

3.) 10 Nov 2018 22:42:02
We do need a left back. Osborn isn’t good enough cover and Robinson can only do so much. We don’t need more players in other areas. We are just short on left backs.

4.) 10 Nov 2018 23:20:38
If Robinson got injured who would you put at left back?

5.) 11 Nov 2018 00:46:28
Why would we need another goal scorer we only play 1 up front n don’t even bother to bring the one off the bench

6.) 11 Nov 2018 04:33:59
Agree 100% with the left back I like Robinson but he needs back up I'm not convinced by pants either so we should look a keepers aswell

7.) 11 Nov 2018 09:53:17
We have kept 3 clean sheets in the last 5 games. We need a settled squad to get promoted guys. One or two additions will suffice. Move on a couple of midfielders. Although he is decent, we just don't need Watson or Tachsidis evidently.

8.) 11 Nov 2018 09:56:52
And why don't we see how Nana-siferard settles before writing off our strikers lol

The other thing I'd say is, if we are top 2 then we might be able to attract genuine top players. I mean big stars. That would change the situation in January I reckon

9.) 11 Nov 2018 18:05:01
Yes I’m a bit worried she’ll find the stairs a challenge but she should be given a chance for sure.

10.) 11 Nov 2018 18:46:04
The clean sheets are coming because Dawson is in the side and captain.

11.) 12 Nov 2018 07:07:33
2star - 🤣 quality

12.) 12 Nov 2018 08:44:39
I agree. We look so much more solid with Dawson.

13.) 12 Nov 2018 12:04:56
Osborne is a left-back. We just play him in midfield. He is perfect cover for Robinson.

14.) 12 Nov 2018 12:05:42
Or is it Nanas-sh1tsarehard?

15.) 12 Nov 2018 22:02:26
Nice one red cyclist ! 😂.

Bring back Billy Davies 😁.


1.) 13 Apr 2019 18:04:51
I could not agree more skegsjay. He has the best record for Forest this century but so many people are anti that they don't want to know the facts. BD needed money for players from two chairman both in January. He did'nt get it and we missed out in play offs. He then gets sacked after defeat 5-0 to Derby when we had 10 players injured which shows total lack of understanding by the owner (in this case Fawaz)

2.) 13 Apr 2019 18:57:09
I’d have King Billy back tomorrow.

3.) 13 Apr 2019 19:27:06
It wouldn't work under these owners though tap.
It's becoming clear our future lies.

Yeeeow he's back!!!
How's it going mate???

2.) 31 Mar 2019 08:35:51
Forest have lost or drawn games on referees decisions or bad luck or combination . Yesterday we won , scored two good goals had a fair referee. Yes we could easily have lost but for Pants and poor shooting but luck was on our side so we should celebrate ! MoN on the radio put the ‘boo boys’ in their place as exactly BC would have done but at the opposite end of the emotional scale. He said how we need a physical fast forward so expect one this summer

3.) 31 Mar 2019 11:56:11

1.) 16 Mar 2019 17:38:55
Sorry lads,I still believe anything's possible in this league. though we could do with a fit Grabban.

2.) 16 Mar 2019 18:13:11
No need to apologize rogie 👍

3.) 16 Mar 2019 18:26:31
Not gud enuff this season mate. It's been better progress and all that but too many missing links. At the start of the season I looked optimistically at the squad, now I don't see too many creators or scorers barring grabban and lolley we ain't got much else. There's a gud pool of players too start but it really is time we got rid of players on loan barring colback if he wants to sign and players who have been on the fringes for the last 3 or 4 managers. The club is moving in the right direction but there's a few cobwebs to clear and start afresh. Gud try this season but improvement needed and I do believe Martin and Roy can bring that to the table. It's been a while since we looked at a season after 15 20 games and felt really optimistic about the end result because we had shown the other teams we are not to be messed with. This season managers and teams know we got gud players and can play well they also know we can be predictable and stifle 2 or 3 of our best players and we seem to hit a brick wall. Next season I think maybe different and we will have more in our armoury. So although I'd luv to be optimistic please let's stop talk of play offs because we just ain't ready yet. Mind you if we did pull off the miraculous this season I'm sure i'd be the first to go mental. Nice try boys but more needed i'm afraid.

4.) 16 Mar 2019 18:28:39
I feel much better now we are sliding towards our customary mid-table mediocrity. I was beginning to get altitude sickness on the verge of the top six.

09 Mar 2019 21:14:27
Great result today well done everyone who played today teams looking stronger and stronger defence is looking sorted after about 5 years and great to see a manager that as a plan b and c for a change everything looking up been the best it's been for a long time and a big cheer and round of applause for the fans that fill the stadium and go week in week out well done all onwards and upwards.


1.) 09 Mar 2019 22:04:59
Well said skeggy jay. To be fair to MON he had about 40 players to look at as krankie went a bit mental with how many he bought in. MON has too workout best players, formations too suit and players he brought in needed to get up to speed regarding game time as he was always bringing in a few mainly loans as we spent our budget and more for the season. So fair play gud result, whether or not we get top 6 it will be exciting to see what MON and RK do next season.

2.) 10 Mar 2019 04:23:56
Well said m8 it’s the fans that through thick an thin, win lose or draw we are united by one thing our love for this great club

Oniell and Warburton don't quit jobs under a bit of pressure the problem with krankie he thinks he's a big manager like is best mate Jose think there to good for the clubs they go to well guess what your both out of work and teams around you without a manager don't want you maybe they will get back together and Skegness town might have them that's a project for you both 😁
