I think Carvalio is making some great diagonal runs in behind opponents fullbacks that our midfield still isn't picking up.
Can someone tell them.


1.) 24 Sep 2018 08:02:27
I’m sure those diagnal runs will be discussed, probably in quite stern terms. There was a bit of talking about it Saturday actually.

2.) 24 Sep 2018 12:16:04
Exactly the point I was trying to make a couple of weeks ago I don’t think that the midfield as it stands today are good enough to bring the best out of the players we have
Still think there’s some more work to be done in the midfield

3.) 24 Sep 2018 14:52:40
We certainly are not lacking midfield options.It's just a case of striking the right balance. I think that we are quite close to achieving that.

4.) 25 Sep 2018 01:40:59
hes supposed to be a 13m creative midfielder himself, so if players don't spot his diagonal runs surely he should get on the ball and make things happen, that's what playmakers do, let grabban make the runs?

5.) 25 Sep 2018 05:34:26
Carvalho’s movement is absolutely brilliant, he’s always looking for gaps and space. Doing this pushes teams back and keeps their defenders constantly on their toes which leads to more time and space for the midfield. Creativity isn’t just what you can do with the ball, it’s also what you can do without it.

6.) 25 Sep 2018 13:03:59
Yep think some are missing the point of a playmaker he’s supposed to be picking out the runs not making them ,

7.) 25 Sep 2018 16:36:25
Is it etched in stone what he should or should not be doing? I think not! Communication is the key. That,I think,will improve.

8.) 25 Sep 2018 17:04:36
Hi has anyone heard if that Iranian strikers paperwork as come through yet

9.) 25 Sep 2018 17:54:42
Think people are clutching at straws if all we can praise a 13mill championship player for is the odd good run he makes OFF the ball

10.) 26 Sep 2018 01:59:40
if carvalhos runs have been so good why have other players not found him or tried too? and if the other midfielders don't see them surely he needs to tell them? iv seen him once live so far against sheff wed and I thought he was awful in the 1st half just jogging around an seemed disinterested an when someone did pick him out he blazed over from 10 yards out, but in the 2nd half he was much better cus he started looking and asking for the ball so for me its down to him if he wants to play like the 2nd half of sheff wed or not like the 1st?

11.) 26 Sep 2018 08:41:31
Carvalhos shown enough to suggest he'll be a top player when the team becomes more familiar with each other.

When the players around him can anticipate those clever runs into pockets of space & find him consistently, he'll have a bigger influence offensively.

He wants to play one touch football, that will only come good when it becomes second nature to those around him.

12.) 26 Sep 2018 12:43:17
Cjay been to almost all the games and you were obviously watching something different to me

13.) 26 Sep 2018 15:00:15
Folk tend to see what they want to see.

14.) 26 Sep 2018 18:39:12
Rose tinted glasses anyone?

15.) 27 Sep 2018 00:09:57
Cjay i’ m a forest fan and want to see him do well what’s your excuse lol



03 Jul 2018 11:46:31
The more I look at the squad set up, and the info that we are aiming for 6 centre backs including the new guy from QPR then I have to conclude we will be playing 3 at the back with wing backs next season. Just need one more on the left to aid Osbourne and Darikwa and Cash wing backs on the right.


1.) 03 Jul 2018 13:00:15
I think it is likely and Robinson can play Left Wingback so wouldn’t need another really.

2.) 04 Jul 2018 22:00:48
I think we will go 4231 and possibly switch to a 352 if we struggle to get a grip of the game or depending on opposition formation



08 Feb 2018 21:31:02
Programme sales will be up on Saturday because if your like me you will need one to identify all the players!


1.) 08 Feb 2018 21:44:16
Save your money Chugsy and use the sky sports app 👍

2.) 08 Feb 2018 21:49:23
Have you not heard, we have taken pity on the women that paraded the Darts players to the hockey, they will be parading all our new players with a board stating their names before each game starts for the rest of the season. You can sponsor the girls aswell as the players now. 😁 😁 😁 😁 😁 😁 😁.

3.) 09 Feb 2018 10:46:18
I'm already on the next flight!!! ✈️✈️✈️

4.) 09 Feb 2018 19:41:09
if Hein**kin created the ideal football fans scenario then that would be it

5.) 10 Feb 2018 09:56:27
It's official Forest now have more talent on their books than Hooters!

What can possibly go wrong?



31 Jan 2018 23:58:59
Both Watson and Guadeora have had contracts ended so both can sign tomorrow.


1.) 01 Feb 2018 00:18:54
Geddy already signed.



24 Dec 2017 17:10:24
I think the game v Sheffield Wed would suit McKay's attacking one touch style perfectly
especially with Hunt missing.
Its the game to bring him back in to the side.


1.) 24 Dec 2017 19:13:25
Don't worry about McKay he's class.
He's just adapting to the physical challenge of the championship and fitness levels required as is Cummings.
He's top of the assist league in the championship as well as scoring a few,amazing stats really when he's hardly finished a single game.
The kid is a good player just needs to improve his fitness levels.

Much has been said recently about our squad size but surely we don't have a bigger squad than say Villa. How do we compare to other championship clubs?


1.) 18 Sep 2018 12:17:38
Its bang average size for a Championship club. We're supposed to be pushing for honours, so square pegs in round holes is out & competition for places is in.

Lets not forget the MO this season is press the life out the opposition for 90 mins & keep the tempo high. there's going to be fitness issues. So quality squad depth is important.

Folk won't see the style yet, folk will tell you the squads not good enough, but I suspect that's the plan.

2.) 18 Sep 2018 12:59:03
I don't know about that cjay there still seems a lot of square pegs in round holes at the minute the biggest one being the manager 2 easy games to prove himself

3.) 18 Sep 2018 13:23:15
If your aim is to press and play at a sustained high tempo Don,t keep signing older players they won,t keep,it up!

4.) 18 Sep 2018 14:53:06
Skegsey Wednesday won't be an easy game.
But if he keeps same side as Saturday we should do it.
2-0. I reckon

5.) 18 Sep 2018 14:58:35
A striker that can play the lone role would of been a great signing, but we're stuck with 2 towards the end of there career just feel the players he has bought attacking wise don't fit into his style of play

6.) 18 Sep 2018 15:41:29
Don't worry red James the full backs will be bombing forwards soon,not sure when exactly,and grabbing will be scoring hat😁😁😉

7.) 18 Sep 2018 15:54:03
interesting article in the Post a few days ago about squad sizes in the championship after some comments in multi media.
Compared squad sizes and number of players used.
we were very much middle of the pile, it just appears like we are top heavy due to influx but there have been loads out of the door, be it some on loan but then we have loaned some aswell

8.) 18 Sep 2018 17:14:21
Wash your mouth out trentender that doesn’t marry up with the witch hunters version of things.

9.) 18 Sep 2018 17:59:37
34 odd squad members and 2 recognised strikers after selling one I'm sharpening my pitch fork as we speak lol

10.) 18 Sep 2018 19:39:45
Hadn’t brereton played more games as a winger than he played up top,thus making him more of a winger?



07 Sep 2018 18:50:04
I havn't got any problem with the amount of players coming into Forest. When you sign as many players as we have we are bound to get some duffers and some that just don't click. I believe centre mid is the one area in the team that isn't working as Karanka wants it to, which explains the additions. Also, up front isn't working just yet, could be down to midfield supply or it could be lack of competition but the Manager isn't hanging around to find out, he has acted. Onward.


1.) 07 Sep 2018 19:50:16
So what happened to .im going to get all my signings done early in the transfer window lol its all seeming very desperate to me very desparate

2.) 07 Sep 2018 19:57:37
Chugsy You are forgetting something, Aitor turned up in January, although he had little time to access the players he inherited he wasted no time getting deals done.

Aitor and the club from that moment had time to research any players Aitor knew he would like at the club, if that research was done properly there would have been no duffers join Forest.

Aitor has mentioned that he admired Yacob from his days at Middlesbrough, is not therefore odd that in spite the fact Yacob was available ages ago yet he was only signed yesterday.

The midfield is not working because Aitor insists having Defenders acting a Wingers, and Midfielders acting as Defenders so the players are struggling.

How will all the players Aitor has signed early doors for the positions the new players are supposed to play in going to feel, they have effectively been told we made a mistake bringing you to the club.

Whatever happened to training players to develop, and making them better. How can a team find cohesion when not only are players being swapped and changed as if Aitor is soiling his trousers every time a new game comes along, and when new players keep arriving.

He might get it right eventually, and i so hope he does but so many players joining is just a sign he does not trust his own judgement so is bringing as many players as possible then someone has to work he seems to think.

3.) 07 Sep 2018 20:57:52
Good post stags and very true.
Some dead wood will need clearing in January.

4.) 07 Sep 2018 22:27:03
Chugsey have we become that rich that we can afford to buy duffers and players that don't click??
Those duffers and non clickers will be costing us a minimum of half a million pounds each a season for doing nothing.
Great plan.



27 Aug 2018 16:20:36
Just how bad is Grabbans injury?


1.) 27 Aug 2018 17:02:05
As someone has suggested, it is fake. It has been mentioned that it is his achilles, if it is true his career could be over as that was Fryatts career enderas i recall.

2.) 27 Aug 2018 17:41:24
According to AK it was "only a slight problem" reckon he'll be ok.

3.) 27 Aug 2018 17:47:33
Supposed t be a sore Achilles.
Who will play up front against Newcastle,surely Murphy can't play three in eight days?
Just leaves us with vellios or gomis and with his stance on vellios just leaves gomis

4.) 27 Aug 2018 18:42:30
Hopefully the team confidence demonstrated so far is not undermined by the chattering classes spreading doom, gloom and conspiracy theories!

5.) 27 Aug 2018 19:49:18
Redinexile there is a fine line between confidence and arrogance. As the players do not start to put any effort in untill we go behind i would say at the moment they are arrogant.

6.) 27 Aug 2018 22:40:46
If so then they are only a reflection of the fans who think we have a divine right to beat two little teams who have both won cups since Forest last won one and played in the Premiership for more seasons than you dare dream about.
Get real and show some support for the man who has the balls to dispense the medicine even though it's hard to swallow until it takes effect?

7.) 28 Aug 2018 02:02:41

Untill Aitor has the balls to decide which is his best 11 and show some faith in them, or untill the players put in some decent performances for more than one game in six i will write how i see it, which is at the moment arrogant players managed by a manager that t believes the only way to find a balanced team is to rip it apart most games. My support is shown by going to the games in spite of the garbage put on display.



23 Aug 2018 09:06:56
Shouldn't the interest of 3 top sides, Rangers WBA and Villa, in Joe Worrell be telling us all something?


1.) 23 Aug 2018 10:10:53
Yes. That they are interested in him. 🤣



15 Aug 2018 19:36:20
Personally I think Joe Worrell is our THIRD best centre back after watching Dawson and Hefelle.


1.) 16 Aug 2018 12:09:55
Where would you place Dawson,Toby and Foxy?

2.) 16 Aug 2018 13:40:19
best pairing is Toby and Foxy with Worrell as next best at this time.

For most of the time Ben's nearest link to other players is the 4 or 5 opposition defenders, with no sign of support from his own midfield. He has battled well for someone so young

I disagree, Put Robinson at left back and find a centre back from somewhere. Rest of the team as per last week. Great footy last week just rubbish finishing and rubbish result.
We created so many good chances.
