That was tense. Last year we would have let a couple in in extra time. Different spirit out there now!




16 Feb 2019 20:21:42
We were out of luck, but what is a real plus is that MON/RK worked out how Preston play and stopped them doing just that. We had some bad luck and Grabban failed to take a chance, but we are moving our formations around and the two central defenders are stopping the old aerial threats and crosses.

We are improving and holding our own. Never give up: other results could surprise everyone. Hang in there and see if we can sweep up a few wins after Direby. This League can change rapidly, teams can falter, players can get injured, We look a much better team now, they need all our help on Monday!

Agreed mate . we're heading into the "Squeaky bum" part of the season. just watch what happens in the next month,some crazy results are coming.



05 Feb 2019 12:51:52
Soudani out for the rest of the season. We do seem to pick up duds.


1.) 05 Feb 2019 13:21:18
Utter waste. He never looked fit

2.) 05 Feb 2019 15:48:40
Worse still he never looked any good

3.) 05 Feb 2019 16:34:53
Said it before and I’ll say it again, could’ve got Jack Marriot for the same transfer fee. Albeit Marriot rising to £6m dependant on appearances, goals etc; but he is into double figures goals wise, plays every game and never stops running and chasing down. Soudani is a dud, spends most of his time on the injured list and is a waste of money.
Another duff signing.

4.) 05 Feb 2019 17:19:13
So are we blaming this one on Team Marinakis or Aitor Karanka?

C'mon chaps, gimme a thumbs down if AK is to blame again, I like to be kept in the loop on this blame game.

5.) 05 Feb 2019 19:55:48
I'd say he wanted him as he tried to get him in the Jan window along with Dawson.
You've got to admit mate he is crap,one and a half millions worth as well.
THE point your missing is that karanka wanted so many out the door without giving a chance to most.
He got a superb performance out of the players he inherited against wolves so wholesale changes in the worst transfee window was not the answer,lolley being the only exception even with all his new additions he set a record that I doubt will be beaten for not scoring,his legacy is I'm afraid going to cost us,we can't be far off ffp now.

6.) 05 Feb 2019 21:40:44
Some of the duff signings were an act of sheer petulance after the Preston game which then became a grudge in the Summer. I still think the club signed the players but karanka probably insisted he wanted new players to replace all of those he bore a grudge against. Reality is most of them are worse than what we had before . Lord , what a mess again.

7.) 05 Feb 2019 21:50:33
2 star you've just landed on my planet.welcome 👍

8.) 05 Feb 2019 23:01:16
After he spent 13.5 mill on carvalho everyone doubled there asking price when we showed interest, that deal should if been kept quiter, we were offered Marriott at 7 mill derby paid 3 mill plus add one same with bamford I'm sure I remember 14 mill being the price we were asked for yet he went to Leeds for 7 mill paying way over the odds for carvalho for everyone to see made your transfer business nearly impossible

9.) 06 Feb 2019 09:38:44
And where pray are these "culled" players plying their trade now?🤔
Just think where we would be with them now?🙄🤣

10.) 06 Feb 2019 10:34:07
Same place as we are now😁😁😁

11.) 06 Feb 2019 10:48:17
It is interesting to watch people who were so utterly convinced we were moving forwards with AK now deciding the club is in a mess and making a lot of poor signings.

If we were making such great progress how come suddenly the same squad with players added (apart from Fox) is a bunch of "duds"?

12.) 06 Feb 2019 11:48:38
I was thinking the rc

13.) 07 Feb 2019 13:47:48
Ain't it all down to the players not performing last time I looked they are the ones on the pitch problem is the players they know their safe and its the manager who'll get the sack fare enough manager sets them up and provides the tactics but they have to show so character and some passion.



31 Jan 2019 21:03:10
Edser to Port Vale for the rest of the season. It'll do him good.




31 Jan 2019 18:25:53
Molla Wague likely to come in on loan, central defender.


1.) 31 Jan 2019 19:04:54
Italian window has closed? Can we still get the deal done or does it just stop Italian clubs signing?

2.) 31 Jan 2019 21:57:03
My widow is closed as well, freezing out there.😰😰

Once again Carvalho does nothing of any significance.


1.) 16 Mar 2019 17:08:51
Did you expect him to all of a sudden miraculously out of nowhere gone summer with pants and quite a few more

2.) 16 Mar 2019 17:48:51
Skegsjay, Martin often says Carvalho has talent he just needs to adapt to the Championship, therefore i think Carvalho will be given to at least January.

Pants will also be with us next season as Martin has not given Steele a chance so he must rate Pants

3.) 16 Mar 2019 18:14:42
We shall see LC if there both still here next season can't see them getting much game time when Mon brings is own guys in



16 Mar 2019 16:57:08
Again poor stuff from Forest. Forget the play-offs guys MON/RK have a massive job to do in the next six months to get us looking like a top team. I'm wondering if an 18 month contract for MON will be enough.




16 Mar 2019 09:59:17
Team V Ipswich?
Darikwa Benaloune Milosevich Robinson
Watson Pele Colback Osborn
Murphy Lolley

Not sure of Watson, would rather see Appiah but more likely to be Guediora, hope its not Carvalho. Maybe Bonatini will start.


1.) 16 Mar 2019 11:01:41
Blimey Bsered. You're definitely going for a 0-0.

2.) 16 Mar 2019 14:05:56
No I'm not, but looking at the team MON has chosen this time, I think he has!



15 Mar 2019 14:57:17
I'm not convinced that (although he scored) Colback was used properly against Villa. I would have thought that 2 holding midfielders against them was pretty much essential. Leaving Pele on his own and letting Colback push up front meant we effectively let Grealish run the midfield on his own. Just a thought, would like to know how those who were there felt about it.


1.) 15 Mar 2019 18:57:35
MON and RK got it wrong.

2.) 15 Mar 2019 22:23:46
Pele was awfull and colback was busy covering our poor fullbacks. Colback needs another holding alongside him for sure.

3.) 16 Mar 2019 11:43:32
It was a game for 4-2-3-1 which would have shut out their slick passing higher up the pitch and prevented the two openings for McGinn to shoot. Without it they just overloaded on Osborn and Pele leaving Yates and Colback chasing shadows.
Felt for the players as they were let down by the set -up rather than the individual performances where the key players were just out numbered.
I reckon a fully fit Villa squad will turn over Leeds with their passing game?



13 Mar 2019 20:13:12
Forest sound slow and leggy today.

Oops. Not enough Fs and too many Cs.

Another dud. Seems we are going to have to get used to players like this being dumped on us - I can't see MON/RK being able to choose who they want if the DoF is in charge of who comes in. They may suggest positions they want to fill, but then have to put up with who is chosen. That's the norm, and I can't see it changing at NFCC.

Well now he has and he just lost it almost bordering on a red card. We looked better in the last few minutes when Murphy was on!

Wague can always step in, no problem.

Appiah played yesterday against Barnsley. So far he's not even making the bench, so maybe MON/RK not so impressed?

Maybe we can loan him out 3 more times and get our money back.

I can't understand why Yacob has been completely dropped, not even on the bench.

Our all round play and our players are just not good enough.

Not defensive enough. Colback should be holding midfielder protecting the back 4 with Watson or Pele supporting him, not shoved up on the left into attack - he's not a box to box man - that's Yates.

I said right at the beginning of the season that any Forest Team making it up to the Premier would look very different to the one we had then.
Yes it has changed, but not improved enough to challenge for a play-off place.
Who with us now COULD play competitively in the PL? Lolley, Darikwa, Robinson, Cash, Osborn, Grabban - not sure about the last 4.
Once again we will have to rebuild to get us there, so it looks like more money has to be splashed out to get top class players.
Doesn't feel like we have changed very much from the last few years, despite all the Managerial ups and downs.
You cannot make silk purses from sow's ears, so I'm not sure how many players we now have will make it by this time next year.
Guess I'm feeling pretty down after being over-optimistic.
