No real complaints from me about the result to be honest. I think Cardiff aren't really getting the credit I think their performance warranted.
They chased , harried and outmuscled us for most of the game.
Certainly the time wasting element of the game is annoying but its nothing new and not exclusive to Cardiff.

Not the greatest refereeing performance particularly the penalty but a different ref may have awarded it BUT may also have red carded Traore not yellow for what I thought was a dreadful tackle.

Murphy is looking tired and we may well be a bit light for someone to take his place but all in all I am not over concerned at all.
Cardiff are not second this close to christmas by a fluke and despite the shennanigans look a good side.

I still maintain we are better placed as a club than for some years.

PS I would rest Mckay for a while and start with Caryol for a couple of games on the left. Whenever he comes on things seem to happen.

COYR and tractor boys next ( love that journey hmm . )

Welcome back Skegsay. As far as I'm concerned Ipswich will be a tough game and our record away is not very good. Of course I'd love us to win, and if Bridcutt is back I think we stand a chance, but I'm not over-optimistic!



28 Jul 2017 13:26:01
Just come from the shop ( which was very busy ) . Told me that the tickets are being posted out today "" no fail " so should be on the mat tomorrow.


1.) 28 Jul 2017 13:41:05
Hope so, starting to worry a bit!

2.) 28 Jul 2017 13:54:06
Went yesterday at 1pm and taking around an hour and a half from back of queue to desk so went back just after 5 and only a couple of people in the ticket office so happy days.
I asked about tickets and was told "some" we're being sent but some still at print so don't worry too much if not here tomorrow.

Middlesbrough have completed a club-record deal to sign Britt Assombalonga from Nottingham Forest.

Assombalonga said: “I can’t wait to get started and train with the boys. I’m glad it’s completed and I can focus on what’s ahead now.

“I can’t wait to meet the manager and get ready for next season. There’s a good feeling around the place. From the minute I walked in it felt right. ”

Personally I think 14MIL is a joke, he clearly wanted out. oh well boro physios will be kept busy ;)

2.) 17 Jul 2017 21:41:53
well I'm glad that's over with. time to move on and get behind young Ben and cummings. let's hope they can fill the void.

3.) 17 Jul 2017 22:27:51
Gonna be tough to fill the goal gap britt leaves but if he wanted to go then the club is right to sell only players wanted are the ones who will fight till the death for the team.

4.) 17 Jul 2017 22:41:15
Assambolonga, Antonio, Burke. We have no ambition.

5.) 17 Jul 2017 22:49:35
Long eaton-in my opinion, we need stability before we can be ambitious. Fingers crossed that the money is spent wisely, hopefully we can make a few decent signings to improve the squad and continue to develop some of the younger players.

6.) 17 Jul 2017 23:02:59
His release clause was met and he wanted to go nothing to do with ambition.

7.) 18 Jul 2017 00:05:04
Bang on Redmash. Some people are just blinkered!

As soon as a club triggered his release clause then he was off and to be fair if I got offered over double I was earning now I would do the same.

Yes gutted to a Championship club but it now history onwards and upwards.

You Reds.

8.) 18 Jul 2017 07:23:32
Long eaton. - everton sell lukaka, soton an entire team over the last few years, but both seem to be doing ok, its the way of the football world, unless you are Real Madrid. What matters most is the owner and manager, we will find out soon enough.

9.) 18 Jul 2017 08:16:50
Agree with longeaton it just shows a total lack of ambition! As a new owner EM should be trying to lift the fans who are deflated after years of disappointment. How is selling our best player going to do that? If I was a season ticket holder i'd be feeling pretty ripped off now.

10.) 18 Jul 2017 08:17:02
Long Eaton Red

Assombalonga, Antonio, Burke sold because we have no money not because we have no ambition.

See Marco: won't spend his few hundred quid on a season ticket, unless the club spends millions.

Assombalonga just cost Middlesboro £15 million plus his salary of £3.1 million a year!

FFP is just not fair. Parachute payments make the unfairness even worse.

Footballers are no different to the rest of our sad and sorry society, greedy and selfish. I do not blame Assombalonga, who wouldn't move to double their salary? I don't blame the club, it has again done the business it needed to do to survive.

11.) 18 Jul 2017 08:25:24
No money? Our new owner owns Olympiacos! Hardly going to be short a few quid! Was hoping Olympiacos would sign Vellios for 15 million! that would have sorted us financially.

12.) 18 Jul 2017 09:31:14
Our last three owners have had multi million pound fortunes.

FFP will only allow a club and its owners to spend based on the money the club generates. Our club is currently losing millions of pounds on a consistent basis.
We now have a board of directors whose task it is to reverse these loses. Unfortunately, as I think Fawaz concluded, a board of directors costs a considerable amount of money too.

We need promotion or some other means of generating cash. As supporters all we can do is pay our entrance fees. I keep banging on about the Bayern Munich model, where they have cheap season tickets. They fill a much bigger ground than ours and make a fortune on merchandise.

13.) 18 Jul 2017 10:07:34
Obviously its a massive shame that he gone but both assombalonga and antonio wanted to go they both have premier league almost guaranteed within the next few seasons. though who agrees it would've been nice to see them three up top together. either way now he's gone i expect at least a couple more signings and for the dead wood stojikov ect. to be gotten rid of. as for positions i say possibly one more defender if we ship perquis and hobbs not sure which but i belive mance and worall are brilliant i want smith to start in goal so i hope we don't go for anther keeper uneccessary imo and perhaps one more midfielder vaughn is getting on despite his quality and cohen has to be careful due to his injuries and i still feel we need a good mid to replace lansbury.



16 Apr 2017 13:52:33
Wonder if the 500 million for sponsorship of the ground and changing name to Kuwait City Ground Stadium will come through before the takeover? :)


1.) 16 Apr 2017 18:32:15
Methinks the sands have shifted and the well is dry!

However, the new kids on the block will bring telecom and healthcare sponsors so expect to see Red Vodaphones, Fairy, Flash, Daz, Pampers or Always on the shirts next year which have synergy with where the world sees the current Forest squad!? Ha-Ha.



31 Jan 2017 11:32:23
If you believe the gossip then I think Chambers would be a decent one. Mcormack. do you really want a bloke who couldn't be bothered to climb over a four foot fence to go training?
More interested in how much dead wood we can offload ie dumitru, kassami, bendtner et al. Not hopeful on that one.


1.) 31 Jan 2017 12:04:52
McCornack would be a fantastic signing. What is it with so much negativity on here?

2.) 31 Jan 2017 12:07:53
If McCormack scores as many for us as he does against us he will get top goal scorer award this season!

3.) 31 Jan 2017 12:42:12
I'm not in the know but there is probably more to the story than not just climbing over a fence. Bruce is a stubborn character at the best of times. Ross McCormack would be a good signing as if he knuckled down and got back to his usual form then not only would it benefit NFFC but also him, us and/or another club as he'd be in the shop window because he has nothing to lose after the Villa stories. Win/win if he knuckles down.

4.) 31 Jan 2017 12:58:10
How can you even doubt if McCormack would be a good signing?

5.) 31 Jan 2017 13:06:22
No way we could pay McCormack's wages, it's just hype. I never wanted Chambers to leave, good player sorely missed.

6.) 31 Jan 2017 13:16:34
Look at it this way. Fawas will be desperate to win favour with fans. A successful transfer window with chambers McCormack as well as others would certainly make a statement. Both are proven as stars in this league. It would certainly solidify the back as well as improving our fire power. I don't care if it's McCormack or Rhodes or any prolific championship striker. If you have assombalonga and bentner snapping at your heals, you are going to perform. McCormack is going to have a point to prove for sure. Chambers and Hobbs as centre backs too? Forget about it. All of a sudden we are a top top team.

7.) 31 Jan 2017 13:25:51
Need to get Vellios and Bendtner off the wage bill to afford McCormacks wages.

8.) 31 Jan 2017 13:27:46
Villa to pay a percentage of his wages.

9.) 31 Jan 2017 14:14:59
Red_Dog Like him or Loath him Steve Bruce is a Winner! Sooner have Bogle here than McCormack. Bogle and Britt should terrorise this league!

10.) 31 Jan 2017 14:18:55
MJB they may all his wages if we give them The Duke (ess)

Broken record time from me insofar as I have no arguement about the result here
We simply have to stop conceding early goals and giving the team a mountain to climb. We did very well to come back twice and I fancied us to come out and win it but it wasnt to be.
A lot of schoolboy errors and bad decisions cost us dear and Waghorn ran us ragged. At least two of their goals were soft as you know what

I thought that bearing in mind Ipswich had no real CB as such that Caryol may have started on the left to pump some balls into the box but it wasnt to be.

Cant listen to the manager but he has no option really than to admit it was a poor second half with too many mistakes.

Pretty sure he will be looking to get a CB in come January to bolster things up.

Well over 1000 here which is pretty good considering its a pig of a journey.

Bring on Bolton ( who have found a bit of form ) but fancy us at home .




02 Dec 2017 15:39:25
Bugger . 2 -1. Good goal to be fair. Phone about done so no more from me. Still fancy at least a point




02 Dec 2017 15:30:54

02 Dec 2017 15:15:47
Grrrr !!
Set piece again. We are well off it at the minute. Plwnty of time though




18 Nov 2017 17:53:16
Again an early mistake costs us dearly but after that thought there was no lack of effort but just came up short in final 3rd.
That being said we could well have had a point which on balance i think we may hve deserved.
Not massive fan of Darikwa to be honest and my only other little winge would be the short corners.
The manager said that this was due to the physical size of the Birmingham back line but I still would rather get the ball into the danger area and put pressure on them that way but hey ho he's the manager and i'm not.
Spoke to some locals outside who said its as good as Brum have played for some time. Typical !!

Fabulous away support again .
Bring on them Canaries

It will be interesting to see who is put up for a move out of the club.
Hobbs springs to mind but I can't see him going without the remaing 6 months of his substantial contract being paid up.
( I am in the play him camp but clearly that won't be happening ).

I thought that offering Cohen another year as a player was a mistake but his loyalty demands a position within the club structure so I can see him being sorted.

Vellios is clearly unhappy and may go but again I would imagine it to be wage related because if he goes to Greece he will not be getting anywhere near the wages he is on here.

Ward is another candidate and I think Henderson too .

Caryol is a worry becauise I can see him going which is a shame but doesn't seem to start a game.

Controversially I think Clough may get dragged into it as once again he doesn't seem to fit into the managers plans,

Mills and Fox may also be included too.

I am not saying these should stay or go but more trying to read Mr Warburtons thoughts. He has stated he wants to sign 3 or 4 players but on the other hand has also said the CURRENT squad of 26 available first team players is too large for his personal style so the maths would indicate a bit of a culling for want of a better phrase

I can't really comment on the social media aspect of today as this forum is my only outlet in respect of that particular part of moderen life.
I think you are right wisheyeddove in what you say with regard to the negative aspects of some posters who will inevitably be calling for managerial change after a couple of defeats and will come on here saying " I told you so " or " this has been coming " etc etc .

Equally you will have posts from other fans who are perhaps more positive in their outlook saying after a win or really good performance eg Qpr saying " Where are all the moaners now " or " Hows the tippy tappy stuff now " etc etc.

I have made positive and negative comments on here which at the end of the day are my opinions based on what I see and quite frankly if everyone came on and agreed with everyone else it would be pretty boring.

My feelings on the subject of international football are pretty clear ie I have no interest in it at all. I do not aim this at the English national side but at the standard of international football in general.

I remeber quite vividly watching the world cup and was lucky enough to watch in 1966 and I watched it for many tournaments after that but I found that probably over the last 15 or 20 years the football in the tournament got more and more predictable and frankly boring.

From my perspective the prevalence of live football may also play a part in it because again harking back to the past I would watch any live game I could because they were so rarely broadcast live.

Football at any level is all about opinions which should be respected on both sides.

If you got to the end of this waffle then thanks and well done.
