I think there are too many detractors of young Nigel's managerial career. He has proved very adept at managing clubs and taking them forward on little to no budget. Given the right environment he will do very well at Forest.


1.) 28 Jan 2017 20:25:33
Previous records are no indication of how things will turn out in the next job. The Dutchman that Mourinio has replaced proves that.

2.) 28 Jan 2017 21:27:09
No matter who the next manager is their biggest problem is going to be fawaz, I hope it is clough not for his history with the club but the fact his teams are hard to beat and he gets 100% out of his players but given our situation I wouldn't come unless he has it in writing unless fawaz comes through for once.

3.) 28 Jan 2017 23:33:02
Deadeye you are quite correct. Until the poison has been removed from our once great club it is immaterial which manager eventually takes over the reins. If Clough has any sense he will see through Fawaz's Bull and stay at Burton.

4.) 29 Jan 2017 12:02:05
Deep down Nigel knows he has taken Burton as far as he can, that is the only reason I can see him coming to Forest. Personally if I was him I would stay at Burton. He will never get anywhere near to what his dad achieved.

What a strange end to the season. Bolton have my sympathy and will probably struggle next season. As for Forest we do need a massive clear out, Karanka was in the same position last year but never managed to fully prune out all the dead wood. We need perhaps 4 quality players, which includes at least 2 frontmen with a bit of pace and an eye for goal. We rely too much on Lolley and teams now realise this and try and kick him out of the game. Another creative midfielder and a left back and we should have a strong squad if we can move out about 14 players. 4 quality additions would with a smaller squad bring a totally different dynamic. Hope MON and RK can deliver and believe they will.

Spot on Tyke

Great evening, what an atmosphere made the 250 mile round trip worth it. Our centre backs were immense, for the first time in a very long while I thought we looked composed and strong. Murphy ran his socks off and with a bit more support we could have caused more problems. MON and RK are class acts and their influence was seen clearly on that pitch last night. Still think the play offs are possible if we can continue to improve as momentum at this point of the season is everything.

I see Gayle has been charged with "deceiving a referee" or simulation. Not sure of likely suspension but hope he gets a long rest to set an example!


1.) 14 Feb 2019 10:33:03
Here's what I don't understand in the rules, if he's been found guilty of deceiving the ref (diving) then it wasn't a pen, if it wasn't a pen, they wouldn't have scored. So why does the goal not get taken away? Diving will never get taken out of football until there's real consequences.

2.) 14 Feb 2019 12:59:19
If players d8ve why not sick the club 6 points soon make sure cheating taken out of the beautiful game

3.) 14 Feb 2019 13:52:43
That is my grip too GazzaRed. Why are we still punished for what turned out to be recognised by the FA as a blatant cheating offence? It's times like these when the deceitful act has favoured the result of a team (ie, they win the game or as in our case, they get a draw) that the FA should strip away the goal, and if that means that the affected team wins / draws then they should be awarded the points and the opposition stripped of any. There's no point in banning a player as they've still 'won'.

4.) 14 Feb 2019 17:31:33
If he gets fined the club will probably just pay it and give him a pat on the back for earning them a point!

5.) 14 Feb 2019 19:45:04
Yep. it give out the wrong signals; cheat and you'll get a slap on the wrist, but you'll get to keep your points. I Tweeted the FA and heard no reply, about exactly the points raised here. We were screwed over, were the rightful winners in this case, but still end up losing.



12 Feb 2019 22:00:37
I hope Lee Mason feels ashamed and apologises as Gayle should have been booked for simulation. Appalling refereeing yet again!




27 Jan 2019 13:13:38
Three great goals yesterday and a good win. Thought the referee was bizarre and was itching to get a Forest player sent off. I liked the energy of the team. Onwards an upwards as all teams are going to continue to drop points on a regular basis in this league.


1.) 27 Jan 2019 14:00:01
Yes literally itching to do it. I think it was probably like an explosion in a yogurt factory when the chance came . Not one for blaming the officials but he was a complete joke

2.) 27 Jan 2019 16:58:30
We have suffered badly from poor refereeing this season, and to be fair so has the whole Championship. Some of the decisions I've seen in other games have been inexplicable. Never mind VAR what about extra officials on between the goal and corner flag lines, two each end, that might help get things right, especially if the Ref HAS to consult with them.

3.) 27 Jan 2019 18:30:38
It was difficult to see how he saw what he saw for sure

4.) 28 Jan 2019 00:35:57
anyone seen the villa v Ipswich game yesterday that ref gave a pen to villa for next to nothing and then doesn't spot the blatant handball by villa player sliding in which should of been pen and red card, was it keith shroud as think we've had bad decisions off him a few time.

5.) 28 Jan 2019 10:37:47
Absolute rubbish ref. He even failed to make one of the Wigan players go off the field after receiving treatment, a real basic error.

Well this will be a true test of how the club react and also keep its supporters informed. Much was made of building bridges and getting the fan base on side, now the Chairman et al will have to earn their money. Karanka has been in a sulk for a while, none of us know why. If I had a choice I would give young Nigel a go, he’s done wonders without a budget and I believe he would do very well at Forest.

To say that we did not deserve anything against Brum is the most crass comment I have read, anyone at the game would know we should have been 4 up at half time. If we can get Tobias and Dawson back on the park we will be challenging for a play off place especially if we can add a couple of players in the transfer window and then it’s down to the playoffs and I would back AK to get us through. There is a desire and team spirit that we have not had for many seasons. Long may it continue.

You obviously sleepwalked through the past couple of seasons where relegation has been a reality and promotion light years away?

In the late sentries and early eighties home attendances were pretty low compared to these days, over 22,000 was a good day, 27,000 was packed to the rafters!

So how many goals did Burke score for us?
