First of all millwall were well worth their point our keeper had an absolute stinker, and very few come out with any credit nobody else said anything but I thought hef had a shocker, the manager went all defensive despite the fact we were 2up i'm going to say no more about carvallhio nice free kick but spent most of the night giving the ball away, grabban was a total passenger lolly the only real bright spark thought we might improve but looks like I could be wrong poor night all in.

I wish the boss would start with Dawson and Murphy against physical sides. It looks obvious to me but not to the boss for some reason.

I can't help feeling like the people on here who reckon this system doesn't suit Grabban were right. He has still only scored a couple of goals in the league apart from penalties. Surely the boss can work out how to get more out of him?

Finally, for a defensive approach we are conceding too many STILL!

This team has promise but it feels like something is still missing. With these players how can we be on the back foot against Millwall?


2.) 04 Oct 2018 09:23:38
Grabban is a goalpoacher,nothing else to his game,great when you play two up,but looks lost alone.
The defence looked poor all night and got a let off early when they hit the bar,doesn't help when they know the goalie will stay rooted to his line all the time and not take charge of high balls.
Heff had a very poor game getting beat numerous times in the air and we still don't look like scoring from corners.
We didn't deserve all three points,but after calvahalo goal that should have been it,don't think karanka covered himself in glory with the final two subs,sitting back and defending was asking for trouble with our fragile defence and dodgy goalie


3.) 04 Oct 2018 10:52:39
Ff79 they also had a good goal disallowed. Pants is a liability. Flat footed, never comes for crosses and inspires no confidence in those around him. As for his distribution??? Captain calamity. Simply a baffoon.
This was a game for Murphy with A another playing tight off him. Grabban offers nothing in this one up role. Dias and Carv are like boys playing for their school. Wonder about with no idea how to move to shape things and are woeful in posession. Why the defence was so poor lastnight? Msybe we were too deep and invited pressure from all angles. Every cross they put in equalled panic stations. can't remember their keeper having anything to deal with. AK needs to stop showing blind loyalty to certain players, assess the opposition and adapt. If thst means more physicality than Fox then it needs doing. Geddy is back to his inconsitent best too. Lastnight was such a disappointment. Not the result the manner in which we went about it. Totally outgunnsd by a poor Millwall side. Step up AK


4.) 04 Oct 2018 11:26:55
Ff I thought heff should have closed down quicker for Blackburn’s 2nd on Saturday too


5.) 04 Oct 2018 11:27:24
To be fair Rutland other than 70 mins in the WBA game we've played badly all season at home in championship,been very lucky at times,that luck will run out I'm afraid.


6.) 04 Oct 2018 20:44:47
Absolutely ff. 70 mins against WBA is it as far as the league is concerned.
The football under Karanka is boring as hell and although the style is defensive the defence is awful. We still concede far too many.
Hefele is slower than a cart horse and Fox never wins a header from a cross.

We have scraped last min draws at Wigan Blackburn and at home to Brum so last night was “own medicine”, reality is we deserved to lose last night.


7.) 04 Oct 2018 21:07:23
Got to agree north Notts can't see us getting enough wins to be up there,we seem to keep grabbing a couple of goals from nowhere somehow,never create many clear cut chances then make individual errors at the back,to me we played with 8 men last night,grabban and calvahalo were non existent and we didn't have a goalkeeper.
You can't carry three players and get away with it.
Most hilarious comment I heard last night was in the car on the way home,Steve Hodge on the radio blaming the fans for shouting at pants to throw it quickly,took his time as usual and then panicked 🤣🤣🤣🤣


 

 

28 Aug 2018 22:39:59
Think it's really disappointing how all the optimism and feel good factor around the club seems to be rapidly evaporating, have been on the fence with regard to AK, but there doesn't seem to be any clear plan with team selection, etc we've had a huge turnover of players since he came in, but the same old failings are still apparent, the slow starts the concession of early goals, the aerial weakness in our own box, we seem stuck with the same rigid tactics, and all the chopping and changing of personnel, which is reminiscent of the montanier reign, yes it's early, but to me the signs are not positive, is there anyone that can sort this club out? We seem jinxed,

Stevie f

1.) 29 Aug 2018 08:38:24
Agreed stevie are we any further forward then last year have we made progress ?i don't think so apart from 21000 season cards that is tonight will be the test against newcastle to see how far if any we have become


2.) 29 Aug 2018 09:36:12
The only difference is we haven’t lost any games. Might not have played well but it’s there in black and white. I seem to remember under Billy Davies time we had a couple of seasons when we failed to win in our first few games but made the play offs. The West Brom game highlights what the potential is, we’ve just got to work harder


3.) 29 Aug 2018 12:10:30
Most of the changes have been injuries or to bring in on-form players like Cash/Soudani. The exception was in the cup to give game time and when we brought in the new full backs (which most of the fans were calling for).


4.) 29 Aug 2018 13:30:38
What’s what the fans are calling for got to do with anything? Karanka is solely responsible for what’s turned out on match days not the paying customers, Osborn, Murphy lolley cash carvallhio Dias have all been ‘rotated ‘in a league season that’s only 5 games old little wonder that the ‘gelling ‘ is taking a little longer than hoped and if any of the optimists out there have seen any progression so far i’d really like to borrow your rose tinted glasses


5.) 29 Aug 2018 13:59:25
Can't argue with that Stevie,but for saying it you have officially become a foremoaner.


6.) 29 Aug 2018 14:25:26
They haven't been rotated. Murphy is second choice striker and Grabban is injured. Carvalho was off form and dropped. Soudani, Lolley and Cash were on form (all came on and scored) so they replaced players who were off form. If the manager didn't reward on form players the squad would be demoralised.

Some people just love a good moan. If anything is the managers fault it is that the work on the training ground is clearly not getting the players to perform.


7.) 29 Aug 2018 14:47:54
The last part of your post is the worrying bit as that's the job he's paid to do,if he can't translate trainng practice to a match then he's not getting across to the players what he wants,that's poor management


8.) 29 Aug 2018 14:58:06
1st of all you don know whether I like a good Moan or not what you’re telling me is players weren’t ‘rotated they were replaced or dropped what’s the difference?you sound like the politician who doesn’t want another referendum but a’people’s vote instead! and in the end everything is the managers responsibility whether we or he likes it or not

14 Aug 2018 22:18:53
Can someone remind me are benfica wanting 20 mill for goncalves at the end of his loan?

Stevie f

1.) 14 Aug 2018 23:53:25
none of the Portuguese lads have done anything yet to suggest they are worth millions, people keep suggesting that its the same as wolves but its not they signed neves who was captain of porto at 18, I hadn't heard of Carvalho or goncalves before, but there's still time just hope they come good, more frustrated in dias as I thought he'd start well.


2.) 15 Aug 2018 08:46:49
Sincerely hope the 3 Portuguese don’t turn out like the 3 Italians platt bought in, cost the club a fortune and disappeared without trace


3.) 15 Aug 2018 13:33:40
Can't believe how negative some people are here. Have you actually watched us play? Firstly,the Goncalves deal is £15m structured over 3 years if we want him permanently. He has looked off the pace but give him a chance! Took a while for even Ronaldo to settle but he turned out alright!
As for the other two, they were great against WBA, especially Dias. Their touch and work-rate were excellent and clearly they have quality we've been lacking. Just because they haven't scored yet no need to get on their backs after a couple of games!


4.) 15 Aug 2018 13:41:23
I’m with nick on that one. Just because they don’t score or assist doesn’t mean they’re not good players. All of the Portuguese lads have very good work rates and you need that in this league so give them one to find their feet a bit more and the goals will come.
But until then at least get behind them and not slag them off


5.) 15 Aug 2018 14:29:03
Forest nick yes mate been to every game and will be at wigan Saturday how about you ? And another thing I haven’t actually criticised them just asked about the money.so how about getting down off your ‘loyal fan ‘ high horse?


6.) 15 Aug 2018 22:25:56
Stevie, I heard 20 million mentioned and think we paid 13 million for carvalho. I’m impressed with their work rate to date. Lile I said before let’s wait until we get to the cold days / nights before we either rejoice or lament.


7.) 15 Aug 2018 23:31:10
yes of course there's time and i'm sure all forest fans will give them the time, my point was I thought dias would hit the ground running as he did have a very good pre season but 60 mins against wba is not a great start, i see positives in this forest team and 1 is a battling never say die attitude that we didn't have last year.


 

 

21 May 2018 21:49:00
Hi everyone long time reader 1st time poster, am interested that a lot of people on here seem to be against the possible signing of Dawson maybe they've not noticed we can't defend high balls, the fact he's an ex player is surely irrelevant if he can do the job.

Stevie f

1.) 22 May 2018 06:36:05
Agree he would add some height to defend set peices but having watched him a few times this season for Hull, my reservation is that he is a little slow nowadays and he struggles to defend against quick attacking players.


2.) 22 May 2018 08:51:10
If he comes on a free and wages are low he would be a good purchase. AK can motivate him much better than Adkins,and we have Figgy and Worrall with pace.


3.) 22 May 2018 08:59:00
Karanka wants experienced players that are vocal that play with commitment and skill, whether Dawson can do the job or not we can not be sure but there must be younger players than him that fill the required wants of the manager that we can get, even if they are only 2 or 3 years younger.


4.) 22 May 2018 12:58:56
Cahill in the England Squad at age 34.


5.) 22 May 2018 13:13:47
Bsered, as may be but would another manager play him, or play a 31, or 32 year old.


6.) 22 May 2018 16:16:29
Or they could play John stones in stead of him way younger.byt then again he’s worse than Cahill so sort of goes against what your saying.


7.) 22 May 2018 16:38:46
Sutton_red85, so you believe there is no player that is younger, even slightly younger than Cahill that is either equal in talent or more talented than him.


8.) 22 May 2018 16:54:02
The choice is England is limited because we have so few good centre backs. Maybe Lascelles will improve, and I always thought Jagielka was better than Cahill anyway. I'm not saying I agree with Cahill's selection, but he's pretty dependable in what he can do.


9.) 22 May 2018 20:39:31
Stevie f welcome sorry no one else said so,enjoy and don't be intimidated,day what you think.
Dawson? It's tough one are we remembering how he was? A great young talent?
Certainly proved himself and got the experience, but des cane back and was a shadow of his former self.
There lies the dilema
Me personally would leave it and move on.


10.) 22 May 2018 22:28:45
Ff799 thanks for the welcome mate, not expecting the Dawson of old but he can still head kick, and lead people raving about Fig, but i believe he's got plenty to prove anyone who saw Bamford of all people work him over at boro must realise that.


11.) 23 May 2018 09:21:37
Must admit figs did have a couple of shaky performances,One being at Boro,looked good prior to that though.

Kirkbyred you had a pop at me down the. Page maybe you missed my posts for the last 2 weeks running saying we had a great chance of top 6 or better because I thought we would lmprove more than most, my main complaint has been the performance of the Portuguese lads compared to their valuation, plus a I have never actually moaned about the manager so please try to get your facts right before you start typing.

20 Sep 2018 15:21:59
What struck me last night was even when Sheffield wed got their lucky goal late, they didn't up their game or seem to believe they could get a point, and unbelievably when carvallhio was subbed and dawdling off as you do in injury time bannan shook hands with him, taking up even more time when normally opponents are pushing you off the pitch, all seemed very strange.

Stevie f

1.) 20 Sep 2018 16:18:28
Pretty sure they scored & then forced a corner didn't they?

Decent from Bannan, i'm guessing he felt he had to acknowledge Carvalho for being the best player on the park.

Theres nowt strange about dragging the life out of a team to the point they don't believe they can win.


2.) 20 Sep 2018 16:32:17
Cjay pushing a point now mate carvallhio probably had his best game for us but not the best player on the park,


3.) 20 Sep 2018 16:57:21
Good performances all round, the spine of the team looked strong with Hef / Fox and Geddy / Collback ( man of the match for me ) and the energy of Osbourne and Cash allowing Carvalho the freedom , Janko was excellent , my only reservation would be the introduction of Watson who looked miles off the pace and we didn't look the same team when he came on , time for AK to give Bridcutt that role IMO or maybe Jacob will give us that cover but Watson really isn't good enough


4.) 20 Sep 2018 19:27:00
Cjay 1 corner hardly constitutes a late onslaught does it that was my point mate

Sswe best laugh ever you’ve decided rather unscientificly you that a whopping 50% of the fan base don’t deserve a decent away performance, mainly because they have different opinions of certain players and home displays, i spent a lot of money home and away watching a lot of ordinary stuff particularly away for years now , and deserve that performance as much as you or anyone else it appears to me if there’s any drivel knocking about on this site most of it’s tied up in that post of yours i’v Just read

redinexile, if you attended regular like most of the people your having a go at I could nearly take you seriously, your messiah Ak is turning trips to the city ground into a chore. games used to be the highlight of the weekend, few beers with mates ( alldayer) such is his dull approach to home games is little wonder the crowd struggle for enthusiasm.

asff779 has said when your keeper booked just after halftime for time wasting at home its sums up the lack of intent. I know a lot of the lads who make the noise in A block consider them mates most go everywhere with forest, they could lecture me for not singing enough, not really prepared to take it from a bloke that hardly goes and doesn’t witness the dour home set up 1st hand.
