Only those at the top will know why we didn't sign Rhodes and got Grabban instead.

doc m

1.) 24 Oct 2018 05:52:50
That is funny.

2.) 24 Oct 2018 06:45:29
Signing grabban isn’t the problem it’s playing him on his own as he’s not a lone striker

3.) 24 Oct 2018 12:56:05
Don't get why people are so anti Grabban - he is a very good striker at this level and has a good record. Rhodes has not done a lot since leaving Blackburn. Grabban scored 20 goals last season and has scored more than Rhodes so far this year - that is why we signed him ahead of Rhodes.

4.) 24 Oct 2018 16:41:29
Up to now this season Rhodes had scored 2 in 10 games, which both came last night, Grabban has scored 6 in 12 games.



22 Aug 2018 22:17:30
Brentford / Bolton with 10 points -, I don't wish to sound negative but have they spent 20m. There can be no hiding winning games has to start and that begins Saturday. The defence must change as its leaking goals like last season. So Byram and Robinson with Fox And Heferle even start Steele in goal. In a way this must be a must to stop goals given away.

1.) 22 Aug 2018 23:33:26
Only a matter of time before some bigger club snaps up Dean Smith,plays attractive football with an end product with players who cost peanuts.
Plays Watkins on the wing and says he'll be a great striker and gets man of the match,good manager

2.) 22 Aug 2018 23:45:58
Couldn’t agree more doc. More points, less excuses. There’s no point bringing in 2 decent full backs to sort the problem positions and then to bench them. Start the game with our best 11.

3.) 22 Aug 2018 23:59:45
Here here tap.

4.) 23 Aug 2018 08:50:04
What is our best 11 then Tap because I'm damned if I know after watching the first few games.

5.) 23 Aug 2018 10:44:23
I doubt that even AK knows just yet.

6.) 23 Aug 2018 11:03:40
I know one thing for certain our best 11 doesn't include Osborn at LB and Darikwa at RB.

7.) 23 Aug 2018 11:15:28
True rick, but it does include osborn somewhere

8.) 23 Aug 2018 13:02:54
Stil trying to figure out our best 30

9.) 23 Aug 2018 15:40:48
In other words then, we don't know our best 11 yet. I definitely don't for sure.
I will just cheer on whoever is out there wearing the garribaldi.

10.) 23 Aug 2018 16:17:58
If only we all adopted the same approach Gazzi!

11.) 23 Aug 2018 16:03:49
Stop sounding so negative it's simple to work out who our best players are , they're the ones who start on the bench every game. 😂🤣

12.) 23 Aug 2018 18:46:44
Where does that Leave Bricutt, Bererton,,Worrall ,and others who can,t even get near the bench!

13.) 23 Aug 2018 19:13:59
Out in the cold unfortunately carlo

14.) 23 Aug 2018 21:30:33
And it's strange Carlo that two of them i.e. Worrall and brereton are attracting big bids and yet can't even get into the match day squad?
Must be some krankie managers out there wanting to buy players for big bucks that can't even get into the match day squad??🤔🤔🤔

15.) 23 Aug 2018 21:41:44
Ff someone said recently that as Worrall has been left out he is now Worthless, yet teams still want him, interesting.

16.) 23 Aug 2018 22:41:43
We won't get near what Burnley were offering was my point on that one stags.
With the stance karanka is taking we should have took the money,it makes no sense at all.



14 Apr 2018 21:43:45
I agree a nervy match but the players that shone today and would be in my view in the squad next season Osborne ( def MoM today ) Lolley ( signing of the season ) Bereton ( best game since Arsenal today ) Watson, Bridcutt ( replaces Colback ) Fig, Fox, Cash, Abe


doc m

1.) 15 Apr 2018 09:31:40
Best game since Arsenal? He was awful. His constant diving finally paid off with the penalty which he took well but an inch to the right and it wouldn’t of gone in. Keeper had it covered. Finally made the right decision with his ball over to Lolly which I commend him for. Last five minutes made up for a very boring, lack lustre performance by the whole team.

2.) 15 Apr 2018 10:52:34
You should be a pundit bongo - if he had gone an inch to the right he wouldn’t have scored?? But he didn’t and he did score 👍 happy?

3.) 15 Apr 2018 11:24:21
the penalty was not a dive the only shots there keeper had covered were the ones he saved and panto got his hand to there goal did he have it covered ?

4.) 15 Apr 2018 12:34:32
If had had gone an inch lower against Brentford we'd have been drooling o er a wonder goal.
Think Ben deserves more credit and having the bottle to take the pen,he wasn't letting anyone else have it.
Not easy being the lone striker in struggling side

5.) 15 Apr 2018 15:40:04
As someone said "fine margins fine margins"
BB great attitude for a player so young

6.) 15 Apr 2018 17:33:27
Brereton is class. He is a kid still but his runs are excellent and this season he has added more physicality to his game. Strikers can’t score if they don’t get given the ball and he does not get given the ball in good positions enough and our midfield doesn’t see his runs. He also lost confidence at times this season due to lack of goals and service. Fans who expect a 19 year old to do better are deluded. Personally I expect more going forward from our experienced midfielders who between them have a lot of championship and premiership experience though Colback and Watson have no doubt helped to protect our defence, they should be able to hit 20 yard through balls and see Breretons runs, same with Geddy and Tomlin too! Lolley and Cash are the two that seem to link with B.B. most who are both relatively young and in experienced! Need a ply maker desperately



07 Jan 2018 09:52:06
Gus Poyet it is then! Invited guest today did manage AK Athens but failed in China and Spain recently so not inspirational.

doc m

1.) 07 Jan 2018 11:32:49
He won't be the manage just because he's been ivited doesn't mean he has the job tony adams was there a few weeks ago as a vip he's not even been mentioned.



23 Dec 2017 08:42:05
Any Reason why we are Linked with Steve Naismith a right winger with injury problems? However he is Scottish!

doc m

1.) 23 Dec 2017 09:24:49
Injury problems? Scottish? A position we don't really need to strengthen? Why wouldn't we be interested in him? Sounds a perfect fit (no pun intended) for us.

2.) 23 Dec 2017 11:15:33
And if we are looking to move some of the old sick notes on, we need new injury prone players to replace them. .

3.) 23 Dec 2017 12:43:43
It's only paper links, if you were to believe them all we'd be signing two right wingers.

4.) 23 Dec 2017 16:54:50
Or two right plonkers!!! Merry Christmas!!! 😂😂😂

Benny Osborn is better on the wing than Cash and that should be the case against the Sheep. Yesterday Cash seemed to play more as a centre forward and can't hit the target and can't defend.

doc m

1.) 09 Dec 2018 11:43:55
He seems to have a stain on him now😂



04 Dec 2018 14:33:17
Here's an idea, I think the fans need to give AK ' that loving feeling ' on Saturday. So what chant could we all do on say the 47th minute or whatever time his age is. He has according to the NEP said there is a personal issue and I think it's time to show him we appreciate all he has done for our club to date to cheer him up?

doc m

1.) 04 Dec 2018 15:45:40
Im not a big fan of karankas as everyone knows he's done alright and we are looking a lot better as a team i just hope the personal issue he has is nothing to do with ill health in any part of his family and something that can be sorted out soon



01 Dec 2018 19:28:54
Did everyone listen to the AK interview on Radio Nottingham where AK describes his feeling as 'low' . On a serious note has something happened?

doc m

1.) 01 Dec 2018 19:44:28
I wouldn't read too much into that,some of it gets lost in interpretion,more than likely because we have no fit defenders left?

2.) 01 Dec 2018 19:45:38
He is low as in 'on the floor' because he can't believe Dias actually won a tackle today.

3.) 01 Dec 2018 21:06:37
Ff have you listened to and watched it?if not watch it he doesn’t look happy about somet.

4.) 02 Dec 2018 00:05:25
Never seen him look happy,have you?

5.) 02 Dec 2018 00:28:10
doc m. You may want to see what Ian Holloway had to say after highlights Tonight!

6.) 01 Dec 2018 23:02:50
Fear not he just raised the bar in the dressing room after the match as they are now doing what he asks. He has asked them to be more ambitious in the final third which they are now doing and now they need to be much more clinical as we get to the business end of the season!
AK is a winner and will not accept second best.
Keep the faith and we will go up!

7.) 02 Dec 2018 07:50:34
There’s no misinterpretation here.something is up or has happened.
I wonder if he’s not happy because we won at home and didn’t draw!
At this moment in time there is only 2 things that would upset karanka and make him look and sound as downbeat as he did,and that would be bids being accepted for players.if it was home life he would of done a professional interview and kept that side out of it,this was his way of letting us know before it happens.
I hope I’m wrong.

8.) 02 Dec 2018 09:30:10
There is something wrong , it may have been Lolley is for sale or sold but then that would create anger ! Not a low mood. My view is that it is a personal problem that is confidential of course. He is a professional but I expect we will hear more in time. AK without doubt is the best manager we have had since Billie so let’s hope all is not forlorn

9.) 02 Dec 2018 09:52:13
Don't let 2tone here you say that word doc m lol everything is fine karanka as just found out he's on Santa's naughty list and won't be getting anymore Portuguese players for Xmas so panic over 😁

10.) 02 Dec 2018 17:20:11
doc Editorial correction. " best manager since Paul Hart"! No bad language on the forum please?😜🤬



30 Nov 2018 06:17:38
Ed is it possible to discover who the 4th official was; I am a little paranoid that a certain official as a grudge against our proud club.

doc m

{Ed001's Note - yes, the Football League keep records of who the officials were.}

1.) 30 Nov 2018 09:33:45
Why do you think that Doc? Most things even out during the season.
It was a sending off mate and was a poor tackle by Robinson for the peno. There surely is no agenda against us ? Why would there be ?

2.) 30 Nov 2018 10:45:02
Spit on 2 star,sometimes just needs a cool head before diving in with rash tackles.

3.) 30 Nov 2018 11:00:56
That's not nice 79 spitting on 2star lol 😁😂🤣

4.) 30 Nov 2018 11:02:12
What was the red card for though foot wasn't high he didn't leave the ground yes it was late but a late challenge isn't a straight red yellow yes 100%

5.) 30 Nov 2018 11:56:01
Bloody phones have a mind of their own at times,no what your saying red james,the games gone soft,but it can be classed as intent,which to me is crap,but they are the rules and basically if you go in hard and mistime it,your in trouble and opposing sides will do their best to get you sent off.
Not saying it right

6.) 30 Nov 2018 12:06:41
All good here FF so long as you polish me afterwards

Who was the 4th official tonight who told the referee to send of Fig.

1.) 28 Nov 2018 22:07:45
A Villa fan.

2.) 28 Nov 2018 22:08:06
The same one who was at Leeds?

3.) 28 Nov 2018 22:13:21
That was a straight red all day doc.
Unnessisary challenge.

4.) 28 Nov 2018 22:14:06
Grabban was.class

5.) 28 Nov 2018 23:17:48
FF personally I thought it was a bit harsh. It was late and unnecessary but he both feet grounded.
Hutton reaction caused the sending off.

6.) 28 Nov 2018 23:32:35
I disagree Ff. Yellow yes.

All the recent managers of different football persuasions had Osborn in their team. To me he gives his all for the club in a Chris Cohen manner. Benny will score goals but his assists are equally important. A future captain of our club when we are in the premier league following CC,s footsteps - but I hope not injuries

It should not be difficult to restrict goals against. Most on this site were against dariwika and Osborn but they have been replaced largely. The centre backs have changed as everyone considered Worrall a liability. So Steele needs to replace Pants or they need to all up their game. Grabban is a proven goal scorer in the premier league. Given the correct service he will score in the teens. This side has all the correct elements in place and especially a manager who needs our support

A talented player there is no doubt just needs a good manager to develop such as AK, and a sound investment. If he opted to stay that world say a lot for AK as he hardly played him

Ed in my humble opinion, the whip round from the clubs is that he had made them all filthy rich ! so its a small tip as thank you. When I retired I had two parties and paid for them myself !

{Ed001's Note - I agree with you. I mean it is not like they could have given the money to a worthy charity or anything, or invested it in grassroots football or perhaps reduced ticket prices.}

Judge AK in January not before. He may have negative tactics but is it 6 championship games with none conceded ? I think our approach to get into the playoffs or automatic slots is going to be correct. The Iranian player is obviously not yet fit. When Geddy was on he was often in the opposition half attacking. Yacob did not stray from his half
