Can any if you helpful souls update me on Byrams injury. Read lots of rumours but cannot find anything on the official site. Is it long term and if so has he gone back to West Ham
Many thanks to all.

2.) 01 Sep 2018 15:48:47
If Lolly is out till xmas,he's got a doppelganger that's just been booked!!!

3.) 02 Sep 2018 09:51:30
Byram injury must be a big one just on fact Janko was brought in on loan deadline day.

Mr Clough on being asked by the chairman how much he would have paid for Shilton replied "any amount".
He later explained (I believe it was to the press) that Shilton generates confidence throughout the team and this is invaluable to the defenders as they know if they make a mistake he will be there to clear up and this makes them better players.
I myself really do not believe we have a bad defence but they are being made jittery by Pants. If you think about it he has the height to come for crosses. He has hands like frying pans but he insists on punching and seems incapable of collecting a ball. All of this is effecting the back four and he needs dropping to the bench from immediate effect.
On another subject that is being discussed refering the crowd making the players nervous. As a manager for many years and if I had told my director that the customers (that's what paying supporters are) are making me nervous then he would have had my backside out of the door without delay.
Instead of defending them and insulting the supporters AK needs to put his boot up the players backsides


1.) 23 Oct 2018 20:31:45
In hindsight which goalkeepers do you think AK should have tried to bring in in the summer?

Indeed realistically which quality goalkeepers would have been tempted to join a team that finished as low in the Championship as Forest did?

2.) 23 Oct 2018 20:38:27
Can AK. Cannot give an opinion on what goalie but what with the owners intent think we could have brought in a decent goalie. Just surprised AK did not and has relied far to much on pants to do the job as he ain't up to it.



17 Oct 2018 14:01:01
I try to be always the optimist. Maybe some times a little to much. The expectations of what AK is trying to achieve is I belive coming good.
My only concern is the lad between the posts as he does not fill me full of confidence. Strange really as I believed when he came last year that he was solid but the last few games then it would appear he has lost the confidence he previously had. Think if he is still struggling in the new year then it's time for a new face.


1.) 17 Oct 2018 16:08:05
Am in agreement mickn. My optimism leads me to believe that AK will replace any player that does not reach his required standards. I am also optimistic that the owner will give him backing to do so. Optimism is the way forward pal.YOU REDS!

He really struggles with his nerves.all we can do as fans is get behind him.

5.) 18 Oct 2018 11:02:18
Yes agree Gazza. AK must have seen something in him but once the confidence goes it a hell of a job to pull it back round but hope he can a couple of good games may do it.

6.) 19 Oct 2018 07:27:14
Tom heaton unhappy at burnley, he’d be useful on loan from January.

7.) 19 Oct 2018 16:55:51
I agree oakham . Do you think we need to move someone out though?



06 Oct 2018 20:48:48
For all the Grabban moaners who was bleating on he could not score. Only five goals in the last six games. How dreadful.
There there how sad still must be another player you can knock back each week


1.) 06 Oct 2018 20:58:23
No one's saying he can't score, it's he can't hold the ball up as the lone ranger,that's why Murphy played today and helped defend set pieces,which is something else he can't do.
That's not his fault,he's a goalscorer,but struggles on his own especially at home.

2.) 06 Oct 2018 21:29:26
79 don't bother answering to the children 😁

3.) 06 Oct 2018 21:35:41
Weather the forms anders or the happy clappers are right or wrong today we beat a very good team so let's enjoy as we're all forest fans maybe not krankie fans as for me I hope he proves me wrong every week that means were winning happy days you redddssss

Temper, temper Skegs

6.) 07 Oct 2018 00:16:26
Murphy looked decent today, definitely the better bet with his back to goal.

Grabbans a poacher.

7.) 07 Oct 2018 12:00:14
Well for me a Β£6m impact sub comes on for 20 mins and puts his chance away to seal the game.

The Β£15m impact sub comes on for 35 mins and fluffs his lines again.

Neither are that good with their backs to goal but I know who I'd have in my team every week and it ain't "The Ass" its "The Goat" and I'd spend the change on another target man!



20 Sep 2018 16:44:33
Great display last night. All the players appeared to be on the same wavelength understanding what was required of them and also put a full shift in.
I am hopeful that this trend can continue and we now start a winning run at least at home
I can see (but do not agree) on some of the recent comments on this site regarding formation being wrong, chopping and changing players and ineffective management.
I do not agree in anyway that we have brought in two many players. My believe is that the manager has top loaded due to the age of some of the players. He sees the experience in them but believe he undestands that they ain't going to be fit enough to play every game hence why he has gone this way so expect changes as this will work when other teams start to struggle with injuries etc. I may be talking rubbish here but time will tell.
Tell me it's rubbish but today is a good day as thought the cancer was back but in my prostate this time but have just been told the high PSA us due to the prostate being over large so good to go.


1.) 20 Sep 2018 17:26:56
All the best mickn. My mate is suffering with prostrate cancer. Anyway great resukt lastnight. So pleased that Grabban and Carvalaho ar off the mark. Sounded a good game too. I was ln my bivvy fishing in north yorkshire watching the score update on the forest site. As for squad sizes we have 3 strikers injured already or is it 2 and one midfielder? That won't help but hopefully lastnight will get us on a run. The most important thing was the cohesion and effort and plenty to cheer. See you all at BlackburnπŸ˜ƒ



02 Sep 2018 20:31:50
Not sure if AK will ever change format but if he does decide to chuck in two strikers my first choice would be Soudani.
Chuck the lad in at the deep end and give him a start with any permantation of the other two we have.
Read lots about him not being an out and out striker but his stats show he has scored plenty at his former clubs. Might have a Sallah there. Cannot do any worse.


1.) 02 Sep 2018 22:55:01
I'd like to see Soudani start a few games with Grabban. I think they had the last half an hour in both the Reading and Wigan games that's it.

2.) 02 Sep 2018 23:32:18
3/5/2 looks the way forward for this team and i'd go with
cash or janko wing back
Robinson left wing back
bridcutt or geuddy
colback or yates
in front of them 2 dias/Carvalho/lolley
an 2 up top

3.) 03 Sep 2018 01:26:04
That's 12 isn't it, unless my maths is letting me down again !!

4.) 03 Sep 2018 05:06:15
Maybe nobody will notice

5.) 03 Sep 2018 23:13:34
no its 11 as its 1 from dias/Carvalho/lolley and 2 strikers

Blimey Red cheesy chips that's posh. Takes me back to my first match my bro stuck a cup of boveril into my hand saying get that down you it will do you good. Blimey the amount of salt he had put in it would have given a food hygienest a heart attack. 😁

Nice post Nfcc. Have to agree it's good to have a start to a season that at present is looking positive on all fronts. Think the managers plan is starting to come together. Don't see any reason why it should not continue.

51. Hope your illness is now behind you and I wish you good health for the future.
I have been saying this about Forest supporters for years they are finkle and impatient.
Crap manager year after year. Not buying enough players then buying to many. All of them knowing better formations than the manager
The list is endless.

Not sure if it was press hype but read that Tomlin was on 19k per week.
