Martin O'neill confirmed

1.) 14 Jan 2019 12:16:37
Not for me. Been out in the Republic of Ireland wilderness for too long and out of touch with the modern game. Might steady the ship but that’s about all. Wrong appointment, we ain’t going nowhere under O’Niell’s leadership. The merry-go-round continues.

2.) 14 Jan 2019 12:27:16
Tap nice to see your giving him a chance

3.) 14 Jan 2019 12:58:04
No matter who comes in to manage the club there will always be unhappy fans.
Hope he O'Neil does well.

4.) 14 Jan 2019 12:59:18
I think just a steady ship now until the end of the season. Build a team that wants to play for the shirt, team spirit, courage and wanting to win. Get rid of the dead wood and recruit some quality as well as getting more academy players game time (and Worrall back) I don't think promotion is an option this season but i'm happy with that. Next season we'll smash it. COYR

5.) 14 Jan 2019 12:59:39
For me O'Neil is perfect,forest about time!!!!!

6.) 14 Jan 2019 13:14:58
It’s not that I’m not giving O’Neil a chance Stevie, just don’t think he’s the right manager to take us forward. 10 years ago, yes, I really hope he proves me wrong and shuts my trap.

7.) 14 Jan 2019 13:10:08
Give the guy a chance before writing him off. Who realistically did you think we could get?

8.) 14 Jan 2019 14:30:51
Martins experience is second to none. He has managed and had success at almost every level from Non-League, Lower League, Championship, Promotion, Top half of Premier League Scottish Premier League finishes European Football and International Football. Warnock has shown that age and methods learned in the 1980's is not a barrier to success. The club is in good hands with O'Neill just need luck to be with us (as do all successful clubs) and we could yet rescue this season that was careering downhill fast under AK. Get behind him and stop the negativity.

9.) 14 Jan 2019 14:33:11
I'd take O'Neil and Keane. I'm sure he will get us playing attractive football.
Some have said he's more route one. But he will be managing players who are more suited to playing it on deck.
Hope he's backed so he can add the finishing touches to squad.
Centre half
A strong fast direct winger

A lot of fans were unhappy when Karanka came in. MON has a great record at club level and been told he jumped ahead of other candidates due to his huge passion for the club and desire to see the club get promotion. We certainly should give him a chance and respect for his record and his amazing history with our club, let’s hope it works out.

11.) 14 Jan 2019 18:33:43
a year ago we would have been really happy in getting MON in as out manager. it didn't end well at ROI but was never going to in the long run. He has a good club record and he loves our club so I'm happy it's him and want us to have some consistency that we have been missing. if Keane comes to then another person who cares for the club and although he can be an idiot at times maybe he is the one to pull people in line. Come on you reds.

One of those days today when the relative league positions of both clubs were clear for all to see.

Nobody disgraced themselves or had an appalling game but for the most part we were left chasing shadows all over the pitch and but for some pretty miserable finishing from Morata (60 million!) the score would have been at least four if not more.

Steele certainly distinguished himself and appeared less flustered than Pantilimon can get and his distribution was much better.for sure.

I have to admit that it was at times a pleasure to watch the way that Chelsea passed and probed away and I hope that some day soon I can see us playing in a similar way .

For me personally a good day out with some excellent skill on show and a battling effort laden display from us.

Beaten but unbowed and as always . . .


1.) 05 Jan 2019 22:12:00
Well said creepy happy New year to you, always get an unbiased analysis from you, keep em coming and no more stropp from you 🍻🍻

A really well fought and well deserved three points today against a side who played some really attractive passing football but made two disastrous errors with the straight red ( no doubts for me ) and the crazy back pass for Colbacks well taken first goal .

Leeds looked well capable of coming back into it until the red card and at half time all looked pretty good .

Defensive frailties again pretty much gifted them a couple of goals but we continued to press and push and after Colbacks second I personally thought we would go on to win.

Mention for Murphy who ran his guts out today in a manner I didn't think he was capable of and an outrageous 4th from Osborn was the cherry on top.

Would things have been different if the red card wasnt shown ?. Almost certainly they would but it was and that's the way that the game is played.

I thought we looked better moving Yacob across and leaving Robinson in position and for a change all 3 substitutions made sense to me.

All in all a good day today and talk of managers' windows, comings and goings can wait for a day whilst I bathe in the afterglow of turning over the dirties.

As always . . .


1.) 01 Jan 2019 22:40:38
Agree creepy.pants is the problem though, fox had a go at him more than once,must be difficult as a defender with the Romanian clown behind you.
Goalkeeper is s must for me if we ate to progress.



06 Mar 2018 18:19:45
Be quite happy with a point tonight ( long drive back if we get hammered ).
Norwich are no mugs and Carrow Road as others have said is not exactly our " Shangri La ".

Hopefully we will start with the same side as last week or very close to it at least. as we are looking a bit more solid at the back.
In fact sat in the trent end last week v Brum I felt I was sat behind a much more solid defensive line with Pantillimon and the two centre backs. I have to say the passing beteween Smith amd Worral has had my heart in my mouth more than once.

Thats not to say we are the finished article at the back, in particular the left back position, but definately imo tighter.

Hope to see either Brereton or Vellios ( unlikely I know but I am still not yet convinced he has had a fair crack of the whip. thumbs down aplenty no doubt :) ).

Thought the introduction of Murphy on Saturday offered us nothing but he may yet not be fully fit.

Either way its . .


1.) 06 Mar 2018 19:48:05
with you on this Creepy
good to see Pontilimon shouting to the back line rather than just fetching the ball and getting on with the game, we need a keeper who communicates with the defence.
I am a fan of Vellios and think he will do a better job than the other two at the moment, BB getting better but still miles away and Murphey not fit or getting any younget but proven.
enjoy the evening mate and bring us back 3 points

2.) 06 Mar 2018 21:45:56
Brereton too busy diving and looking for free kicks n penalties to play football. Missed the target on several occasions. Send him to Notts. With Murphy playing the way he did on Saturday we have no option but to play Velios. The best we have by a mile.



31 Jan 2018 14:34:29
Caryol and Traore gone

1.) 31 Jan 2018 14:40:44
I hope nobody payed money for them lol

2.) 31 Jan 2018 15:14:29
Contracts cancelled ( paid off probably )

3.) 31 Jan 2018 15:21:02
Good news if we get the right players in

4.) 31 Jan 2018 15:32:40
We could also do with getting Hobbs, Fox and Mills paid off.

5.) 31 Jan 2018 15:56:48
And Darikwa please

6.) 31 Jan 2018 16:33:07
Loan Darikwa out to the lower leagues.

An amusing ( to me anyway ) interlude amongst the tedium yesterday when early on after a speculative shot went well wide Pantilimon rushed out to almost the halfway line ranting and gesticulating at all and sundry for some reason or other.

In the second half when one of his usual kicks went straight into touch Yacob gave him some back pointing to where the ball had gone out.

Bright sunny day at Bramhall Lane and let's hope the storm clouds are not gathering. Looking at the,side it may well arguably be the most unfathomable starting 11 AND bench this far this,seaon.

A lot discontent and disappointment amongst the travelling contingent it has to be said.


As ever


1.) 19 Apr 2019 12:31:02
I've backed forest to win 3-1 I don't know what the bloody bookie was laughing at when I put the bet on maybe it was because I had pantilliman down for a hat trick 😀 jokes aside think we will win today and I know a few of the blades fans are nervous about forest but after seeing the starting line up I've had a few texts off them with smiley faces come on lads let's kick some ass



15 Apr 2019 15:02:24
OOPs fat fingers.

Vellios, Cummings, Tachtsidis , Clough ,Grant, Ariyibi etc.

As far as I can glean we will lose two players this summer in Henderson and Ward as a result of expired contracts with the remainder of the squad having at least one year to run which presents the problem of what to do with them.

Quite frankly many of those players are unlikely to attract any kind of bid because as far as I can tell they have not exactly covered themselves in glory at their loan clubs , Walker being the glaring difference, and even if they were offered free transfers the question of how much they are being paid will become a factor.

There can be no real argument that we do need to thin down the squad but it may well be that this will result in payers being paid up and contracts terminated which I think may well have impications with the dreaded FFP which may well mean us having to keep players for another year that are not wanted.

The top heavy squad we have has been built up over a couple of years with Mr Karanka in particular signing a large number BUT it has to be pointed out that someone within the structure of the club had to agree and sign off on these contracts and to put the responsibility at one individuals door is patently unfair.

I think by and large without going into specifics and possibly with the odd exception , Carvalho for example , we would all agree that we would release more
than we would keep but I question if this is a realistic possibility purely from a financial point of view.

This is a far from uplifting post and I am a glass half full person but I cannot see it any other way at the moment and do not envy whoever has to sort things out even BEFORE new signings are looked at.

As always . .


1.) 15 Apr 2019 17:27:50
A few of them might be playing Greek football.😎

2.) 15 Apr 2019 19:23:30
They can go and play in timbuktu for all i care as long as we can get rid of them but yeah it won't be easy.theres that much rubbish to get rid of that i doubt we could field a team with the players left.its going to be an interesting summer that's for sure



15 Apr 2019 14:33:29
Come the end of the season all of our loan players will be returning to their parent clubs with from my perspective only two being worthy of consideration of a return in Colback and Byram though both of these will have issues of financial commitment and injury record respectively and decsisions will have to be made with these factors in mind.

On the flip side we will also be getting back a large number of players back to us from their loan periods including the likes of iellios, Cummings , Clough, Tachtsidis

1.) 15 Apr 2019 14:45:16
The1, What do you not like about Bonatini and Janko.

2.) 15 Apr 2019 15:37:40
Will Martin attempt to juggle? Or will he just drop them all!?

3.) 15 Apr 2019 16:50:25

In fairness to Janko whenever he's been called on he has generally been quite solid without really catching my eye.
In Bonatinis case I simply haven't seen enough of him and when I have he hasn't seemed fit. For a player of his supposed calibre both of these things seem a surprise bearing in mind our lack of firepower

Along with many on here I too would dearly like to know exactly what happened with Mr Karanka and it has been touched upon previouslybut sadly I doubt the full circumstances will ever be known although I agree morally we as fans may well have the right to know at least the basic facts but sadly this will not happen.

The facts sre there for all to see ie after beating Ipswich we were in 5th place with 34 points from 20 games yet a few short weeks later we had slumped to 10th with a return of 2 more points from the following 5 games including defeats to QPR and Milwall and IF offield interference was the issue then I am afraid Mr Karanka played his part over the ensuing weeks after the Ipswich game and THAT interview.

By this I refer to the fact that on the 29th December following defeat at Milwall he stated

"I arrived to a project as I did in Middlesbrough with two and a half years to try to do the same. I will work my best, be honest and try to put this club up where it belongs."

Yet 13 days later he left the club by mutual consent after asking , by all accounts, for his contract to be terminated a fact which must surely have been in his mind for a while.

This is not intended as an indictment on either party but just a representation of the way I see the situation which did no doubt leave a bitter taste in the mouth although it is clear he felt that his position had become untenable and was without question manifesting itself on the pitch
