I feel a bit sick right now as rumours emerge about MON future. Marakinakis was full of praise when he interviewed Martin saying his enthusiasm was overwhelming. Givem Martins experience and absolute honesty i would like to think that he would be given a chance to vindicate his alppointment. Look at the reality of the injuries he inherited and the huge squad of averageness. A couple of days of crap window to shore up the defence?

Its crucial that msrikinakis invest time in oneil and let's him shuffle this squad and bring in his players. I admit to being baffled by the team sheets and the seemingly lack of conviction from the plsyers on matchday. Is oneil just dussing out the characters he wants to keep? I thought when AK left thst Bruce was a goid fit but got many thumbs down.

I doubt even he coukd get a tune out of this bloated and fragmented squad. Its going to be painful between now and the season end but its essential to get this squad rinsed of the dross and a clean slate for Oneil. You can see it now out with the Brit and in comes Johnny foreigner and his ambitious calamatous vision for a quick fix. It will be another disaster. Just look at that squad? Can you really level ALL the blame at a hapless Oneil?

If Marikinakis pulls the trigger so prematurely it will show him as impatient and petulant, insincere and desperate. Many good things have happened under his stewardship but getting the right manager and assembling a tight talented squad has been a huge failing. He needs to grasp reality and support Oneil right now. MAYBE MON is not the right manager but should he be judged and sentenced on the mistakes of previous managers poor judgement? I think you all know the answer!

If you’re a good manager, you take average players and make them good, and good players exceptional. You make the most with what you have and bring in to improve the squad by buying players to turn a weak area into a strength. Since AK left, our strength of being fairly hard to beat has faltered, our attacking prowess has left us, and we’ve played more formations than in the previous two seasons. It could be argued that inconsistency in a shape is causing players to make poor tactical decisions which is then causing us to be easier to break down. AK played a system, it might not have been pretty or always effective but it was consistent and thus hard to break down. I personally don’t think MON should go, but I think if he doesn’t stick to a system he won’t be here come the start of next season.

2.) 18 Apr 2019 11:07:30
Ever since Martin came in these players have become trash overnight. They’re that bad he’s been forced to play our best centre mid at leftback, drop our most creative player to the bench when we can’t score and leave our center back in the stands so we can play our best leftback there. Now this sounds confusing and that’s because it is. MON needs to go.

3.) 18 Apr 2019 12:44:47
I wouldn’t say that. The issue lies with the fact that MON is taking a while to settle in and get his team set up but he’s not doing it quick enough and people are becoming disillusioned. He just needs to stick to one thing until the end of the season and if that’s round pegs in square holes then so be it. As long as players know what they’re supposed to do rather than what they think they should do we’ll improve. I think there’s too much freedom for too many players which is why we’re conceding and don’t look a team.

4.) 18 Apr 2019 13:00:48
He just needs to play the best players in their right positions and forget the hoof ball tactics. Something he is too stubborn to do.

5.) 18 Apr 2019 13:30:51
Why do we never hear anything from roy keane wonder what his thoughts are??

6.) 18 Apr 2019 16:05:44
His thoughts are probably why have I come here to be on the end of all this social media hatred after only 14 games.

7.) 18 Apr 2019 18:45:25
Just what we need. A new manager. After all, it's always made a difference and got us promoted over the last 10 years or more.

8.) 18 Apr 2019 18:57:30
Syred- It’s not hatred he’s just not up to the job. Can you explain his recent bizarre team selections? And awful football.

Diamond Geezer - why stick with a manager that obviously isn’t working? If his name was McLeish youd want rid.

9.) 18 Apr 2019 19:13:33
Why would you feel a bit sick? It's Forest, same old, same old.😐

10.) 18 Apr 2019 21:26:57
Red tree if Osborn is our best centre midfielder then we are in trouble.
Even karanka and warby didn't play him there.

11.) 18 Apr 2019 23:00:00
Just to clarify 79’ In my opinion

Colback is our best CM
Robinson is our best LB
Milosevic should be playing CB
Carvahol should be playing CAM

I don’t rate Osborn, if we want to challenge at the right end Osborn isn’t in the team.

12.) 19 Apr 2019 19:29:42
Jamie ward is better than osborne, I would like to o Neil get his 18 months after all we'd go through 4 managers I that time ,and if he was to go whos coming in overseas managers are not going to do us any good they don't know the league if we was to change I'd bring in David Blaine as we need a fcking magician do do any thing here, I'd settle for some decent moving off the ball passing and getting a few shots on goal

13.) 19 Apr 2019 23:42:24
David Blaine would be an improvement on the miracle man at the moment.

14.) 19 Apr 2019 23:51:47
Well everybody is having a go at pick and mix with the squad.
The fact is the squad was assembled to play out from the back and be solid in midfield. and playing on the break That was working until our centre halves got injured.
You cannot expect the team to adapt mid season to playing a completely different way with a new manager so stop moaning and just accept that MON is giving everyone a go to see who he wants for next year.
Pre season has started early. We will dump at least 10 in June when contracts run out. The youngsters are not quite ready but we have a core of good pro's upon which to rebuild the squad.
I could not care less if we lose all the remaining matches as individual performances will determine who is up for next season?

15.) 20 Apr 2019 17:17:14
You might not care but people are paying money to watch this garbage. He hasn’t shown us anything progressive or deserving of a shot next season. So instead of telling people what to do consider what’s best for the fans and our poor necks. hoooof.

16.) 22 Apr 2019 08:28:11
Cant switch to a different style ?? I've seen teams make 3 subs at half time and from playing it out from the to long ball because the opposition have stepped the pitch, they have played football from a young age and are paid well to play they should be able to follow instructions and tactics so is that managers fault or players maybe both

17.) 22 Apr 2019 11:38:05
Managers fault



17 Jan 2019 22:04:33
For all the negative reaction to Johan beneloane joining us and i have looked at his stats. Some of the stuff on youtube show a comepetent mobile skilful tough tackling defender. Can do no worse than what we have available.

rutland red1

1.) 18 Jan 2019 05:07:20
YouTube is the worst players best can make anyone look a world beater.

2.) 18 Jan 2019 07:25:19
A lot better than what we have Rutland at least he's a defender doing a defending job .not a midfielder or a winger as used over the past 12 months .hey we might even have a manager doing a managers job now as well what do you think Sutton 😆😆

3.) 18 Jan 2019 07:46:09
I like it Skegs.

4.) 18 Jan 2019 08:05:23
I spoke with a leicester fan who watches every game including under 23's home and away and he says he is a very good cultured centreback. Gets stuck in and may take a few yellows. He reckons oneil is just the man to get the best from him.

5.) 18 Jan 2019 09:32:47
Can also be the best players worst friend,depends how you look at it Sutton. 🤔

6.) 18 Jan 2019 14:36:02
Johan Benaloane. sounds like he's no mates!???

7.) 18 Jan 2019 15:25:14
MY Leicester mate says he is solid and a good player. He has just been unlucky with the form of Huth and Morgan and now Maguire.

8.) 18 Jan 2019 15:41:02
Is Lacovitti out on loan? If not, why not give him a game? And what about the young Swedish centre back? I hope young players get more opportunity under M O'N than they did with Karanka.

9.) 18 Jan 2019 15:57:25
Yes, what is the point of keeping Anel Ahmedhodzic if we don't even play him when no other defender is fit. It must sent the message that you will never get a chance if he doesn't get one now.

10.) 18 Jan 2019 16:00:24
And no, Lacovitti - Scottish International - is not out on loan as he was in the U23 side.

And Anel Ahmedhodzic is also an intenational.

11.) 18 Jan 2019 19:57:03
If we signed Messi someone on here would say he's past it, give the bloke a chance and i mean MON

12.) 18 Jan 2019 20:55:11
Read the comments about Iacovitti and Ahmedhodzic not being played. Seen a fair bit of these two with the U23s.
Not seen much from Iacovitti to get excited about. Ahmedhodzic is a real talent but last time I saw him, 9 months ago, still way too skinny for a Championship centre half. He's only 19 and 6 foot 5. Just give him some time to fill out. Fingers crossed, he could be a real gem



28 Dec 2018 12:02:42
Fox was seething as he came off and had to be restrained. Was it from the ref or AK? Their were some long injuries and lots of subs plus pants did his usual time wasting which is about as thick as he gets. So the ref, rightly made us pay.
Bringing on Dias would have angered the senior pros as we were dealing with wave after wave of pressure from Norwich.

Watson sat deep or Osborn harassing would have made sense but Dias? AK is on a suicide mission and will not admit his mistakes. Darikwa is so inconsistent its a shame, sorry but if AK perseveres with certain players we will never be a proper force. He has one style, if you can call it that, which is effective away but he has no plan B at home. How can teams like Norwich swarm over us at home yet we are feeble and directionless? Frustrated?!

rutland red1

1.) 28 Dec 2018 15:13:33
For me foxy and colback men of the match for me fox probally wanted to get at dias and give him a b******g after all he deserved it woeful.

2.) 28 Dec 2018 21:25:16
Pantilimon booked for time wasting in the 97th minute.
Would the ref have blown up if he hadnt p@@@ed about and just lumped it up?
Guess we will never know

3.) 28 Dec 2018 23:42:16
Pants is PANTS and any other manager will drop him,s---------tt



02 Feb 2018 16:45:05
Ben watson expected to sign after the Fulhsm gsme. Positve talks held at the academy. Will be great for us.

rutland red1

1.) 02 Feb 2018 16:53:30
Him and Coleback would be a couple of firebrands in midfield, along with Bridcutt I can see our work-rate going up.I don't know how Bouchalakis is going to fit in. There will be a lot of question-marks over our present players by the summer.

2.) 02 Feb 2018 17:34:50
I can't see where osborn and dowell are going to fit in

3.) 02 Feb 2018 18:30:22
Really Dowell is one of the best players we have

4.) 02 Feb 2018 21:03:36
Dowell is a luxury,which is fine when your playing well and winning.
His problem is he goes missing in games,sometimes for 70 mins then might pull a thunderbolt out of the blue.
Other than a big deflected goal against wolves,he has not played well for a while.
Needs to put a full shift in,but then you have to take into account he's been in a side that has a unbalanced midfield with four being left footed on everymatchday.
Should be more balanced now,but i'd leave him out tomorrow in favour of ged colback osborn cash and tomlin.
Stronger players against a very good side in great form.

5.) 02 Feb 2018 21:07:06
He is very talented i will give him that. he's a luxury player if the teams playing well he does well other than that he's very lazy

6.) 03 Feb 2018 08:12:45
Your right ff. we now have pit ponies as well as show ponies.

7.) 03 Feb 2018 11:42:41
New guys aside as I don't know about them, Dowell is the only one who can hit a decent free kick.

8.) 03 Feb 2018 13:24:04
As well as a dodgy corner 🙄

9.) 03 Feb 2018 21:22:20
Like i said should have left Dowell out,snowboater who plays for himself,not the team.

10.) 04 Feb 2018 11:58:13
Dowell needs to be dropped for a few games.

11.) 04 Feb 2018 14:57:29
Lol what's a snowboater it sounds good craic 😂



27 Jan 2018 22:31:22
At least now their can be no argument. Karanka has given him a chsnce and he has taken it. I told you all Velios is not crap well done karanka.

rutland red1

1.) 28 Jan 2018 06:39:53
Just seen the goal, great finish. Playing brereton ahead of velios has cost us .

2.) 28 Jan 2018 09:48:49
Two bad defensive errors cost us.
I said it was game over at half time.

3.) 28 Jan 2018 14:28:21
Ff79 you seemed happy with the line up yesterday. You then thriugh what you saw changed your tone. Was it really that bad???

4.) 28 Jan 2018 16:16:41
Rutland. Nearly everyone thought it was a positive line up. We even convinced ourselves that Carayol might be part of a master plan. We sat or stood mainly and watched absolute garbage.

5.) 28 Jan 2018 16:51:12
Ff79 i do not get csryol. He always looks liks he is limping either thst or he has one leg shorter than the other. For sure Karanka will have his eyes open now. Its so disrespectful to 4000 travelling fans for that to ever happen again.

6.) 28 Jan 2018 21:03:34

Karanka will have Carayol out the door as he had his eyes opened at Boro with him. He has no work ethic or courage and is good for about 20 mins a game on a good day!

He'd be better off in the French league where he will get more space.

7.) 28 Jan 2018 22:22:19
Rutland I was happy with the line up,the problem is they didn't turn up yet again.
They win a game against the top side in the league and follow it up with a shocker,been doing it for too long now,It's inexcusable big clearout required as they don't have the mental strength to succed

8.) 29 Jan 2018 05:15:31
Mental strength that's a good point. These next 4 days are going to be interesting. What does karanka do??? Stick or twist????

9.) 29 Jan 2018 08:36:31
On that performance twist.
Boukalkis fox Carayol definite non starters for me and and Dowell and Brereton dropping to the bench.

23 Jun 2019 21:58:16
Trying to see the big picture and understand that Keane has gone fir personal reasons. I am struggling to see a positive perspective. Keane was very eager to link up with Martin and had to tie up some personal committments and come to terms with family illness before joining the club. On reflection Roy and Martin have been ok together but what they have acheived would not alert clubs to Roys development as a rounded manager so why would he leave to fulfill personal ambition?
The clear out of this bloated squad has been fitful and unbalanced with the likes of soudani going when in reality their are so many before him
Wasting club time. The recruitment looks desperate and very underwhelming for a club with lofty ambitions and pending ground developments, based on forward success.
Martin has been very quiet to date, that's ok if he is going about business in a stealth like manner but in truth its a bombshell Keane leaving. He was keen to come but with the job just really starting in earnest he has gone. It has shocked me!
Sometimes silence is deafening but this scenario is indicative of a situation that Roy sees only one outcome. But please chaps put your thoughts with Martin right now, he is so committed and at a crucial time has lost his assistant. Penny for his thoughts?

rutland red1

1.) 24 Jun 2019 05:15:02
It does not matter why Roy left, he has chosen to do so and as long as he does not get promotion with a Championship team before Forest do under Martin i wish him luck.

Off course there are many players need getting rid of that are surplus to requirements but as clubs are having to contend with ffp the club can not pay them all off.

I feel Martins hands are being tied to so extent, but it is just a matter of hoping that once the transfer window is closed he turns what he has into a well drilled unit and we make a good fight of trying to get promoted.



06 May 2019 08:24:38
Well the season, thankfully is over. Its over with 3 wins on the bounce. Not meaningful wins but victories that should ensure we start the summer with managerial stability and a clearer vision going forward. The last thing we needed right now was a change in management. Our managers will know exactly what is required regsrding player retention and targets desperately required to bolster the team. I expect swift action and indescriminate dismantling of bloated ordinary squad of seemingly mercenary players. If transfer funds have to be used in part buying out contracts then so be it. I think a lot of players will have to accept a deal to be released from their contracts, i doubt they will get full payout. The club needs a much condensed playing staff to provide clarity going forward.
LESS IS MORE needs to be the motto going forward and quality of quantity. i personally belive that Martin and Roy have used their time these last 3 months scrutinising and taking a good look at the forty odd numbers in the squad. They have done well to rinse out some results whilst experimenting with personelle and formations. This they need praising for.
The excitement starts now for me in as much as who leaves over who comes in. As those leaving will indicate whether martin has full control and trust from the top to FINALLY re-establish the club as a true force over callamatous desperate false dawns.
One word of caution though, will Mariknakis have his eye on us or his pending match fixing case? Thst is a worrying shadow?

rutland red1

1.) 06 May 2019 09:14:05
Well thought out post Rutland.

2.) 06 May 2019 19:50:51
Well said Rutland. Do not worry about EM and Greek politics. He has put us on a path to sell the club to even bigger hitters if the proverbial hits the fan!



21 Apr 2019 10:37:06
Irrespective of what happens in the remainging games i am hoping we get to the season end with no sackings. Like most I am bewildered by the slide and apparent loss of enthusiasm and co-operation on the pitch. But all was not happy under AK towards the end with rumours around Grabban and upstairs maonouvering. The club and not just Martin needs to realise that we have a huge mish mash of a squad. A combination of merceneraies, players brought in that were unattsched and unfit. Youth that has not reached the potential promised, including yates, cash and osborn. You only have to look at our quality of keepers? Our so called no1 is still flat footed and cannot command his box and crosses to him are religeous things.
Form is temporary and class permenant. Can anybody on here hand on heart see any class in this squad? Class in talent and attitude. We have one or two the right tools but all have been at other clubs and let go for a reason. Lolley Grabban, yacob and colback.
I don't think another season of clearout and rebuilding is going to get us promoted that sort of thing rarely happens unless you have the nucleous of a decent squad. Even Robinson ran his contract down and left QPR, we thoight we had a player but are his off field antics hindering him again, is he right for forest? Tgecone player we had who was asked to play multiple positions and showed the fighting attitude was fox. We could do with a dozen more like him.
Martin may realise that this job is a bridge too far and walk as he promised that he will leave at the end of his contract if we were not promoted. Well one season to go and reality says its not possible as we are light years from a settled squad or team. Having said that i think keane is being primed to take over from martin in due course. Just a thought.
So this next few weeks are crucial in deciding which way the club wants to go. We either believe in Martin and he us, or we go down the road of hope and a prayer of cutting off the head of the beast and bringing in another managerial team that will still be faced with same issues and making more desperate signings only to find the roads lead to the same dead end.
If ever we need a solution its in the continuity of martin and his clarity of thought. It may not be perfect but its better than the other dreadful scenario.

rutland red1

1.) 21 Apr 2019 11:02:37
Rutland , the issue I have is there seems no answer to the question of who next. Like I said yesterday expectation is the root of most disappointment - there is a message in there somewhere.

2.) 21 Apr 2019 11:11:43
Rutland. Great post by the way.
Keane won’t stay here mate , too much pride to take the criticism that he hurled at them. Disgraceful really when you think back to 92/93 when Keane played in every position that season and displayed warrior like tendencies in desperate attempt to keep us up whilst the majority of the rest of the team hid behind cloughies bottle.

Some of us fans respect the players who began their careers and then had glittering careers elsewhere, the past of the club isn’t just about those players and a manager who created a miracle over 3 seasons. That said almost predictably the s*** stirring about Keane is well under way.

3.) 21 Apr 2019 11:42:50
2 star the way i see it. Either mon and keane are wrong. Marikinakis is wrong or we are wrong. Maybe the squad is wriong???. Personally their is a lot wrong. However MON has the pedigree, maybe not in style but can be trusted to get the job done. He is not stupid and he will accept any blame coming his way. A change at the helm is not the answer. This squad is like an over burdened tanker trying to turn labouriously in a storm. It will take a lightening of the load and a determined skipper to get us through the storm. I can think of few better than MON who would willingly come to the club unless promised cash who could turn things around. So give the cash and control to oneil as half the job is already done in sussing out the characters and planning thst MON will already be under way with. He will not be waiting for the season end to start the job. That is why chsnging now would have wasted the months that Martin has invested in OUR future.

4.) 21 Apr 2019 11:54:40
All fans want to see the Manager who ever it might be succeed but the football and the selections have been dire and if they don’t have the belief of the players there on a hiding to nothing, yes we can sell and rebuild but we’ve been doing that for umpteen years now,

There doesn’t seem to be a structure at the club and we need a team who all sing off the same hymn sheet who run the club as well as the players wearing the shirt and represent the reds, then we can be successful, that’s why I keep harping on about there needs to be proper leader at the top who can communicate and listen.

Billy Davis was the last Manager who actually got the best out of his side but got stabbed in the back, and it’s been happening ever since. Karanka started something and you could see glimpses and the same thing happened,
So when people spend there hard earned money to support this club of ours and get the same bull year on year you can appreciate why there’s so many disgruntled fans.



19 Apr 2019 16:48:57
Ref spoilt a decent contest. Could you honestly say colback dived? He was tripped, not badly but a booking? As for the sending off? Dreadful decision. No contact and mcgoldrick took a dive as he lost possession. Having said that pele gave the ball away cheaply and left us exposed.

Looking at the midfield Yates again chasing shadows and looks cumbersome and not very athletic. Cash was simply awful, made some poor decisions and was easily knocked off the ball. He has been found out. Sorry.
I thought we tried to play football but the final ball up to the lumbering murphy was poor. Yacob was class end of. Benalouane will be gone he has too hot a head. I feel for Martin and hope he gets the chance to rebuild. But i expect marikinajis to act but will be pleasantly surprised if he doesn't.

rutland red1

1.) 19 Apr 2019 20:29:17
Pele is garbage Rutland . Like FF said earlier this squad is total and utter dross.

2.) 19 Apr 2019 20:31:23
After all the clamour to give Yates a chance in the side maybe we can now put it to bed. After a couple of early promising performances he's now been found out as bang average.
He wouldn't get in any other championship side!
Why O'Neil chose to take Yacob off and move Cash into centre mid to accommodate appiah is anyone's guess. If it was to see how Cash performed there then I hope he's seen enough lol. It was painful to watch him squander possession and get knocked off the ball (leading to the second goal) all too often.
Some very strange decisions all round.

3.) 19 Apr 2019 21:08:11
Red Fred maybe o’neill Took yacob off because he was out on his feet having hardly played any football recently??

4.) 19 Apr 2019 21:20:17
Fred, keep saying it myself mate , how many more ‘next stars ‘ do we have to endure before someone realises the academy simply isn’t producing the goods these days . How many performances we had to endure from Breteton before we realised he was crap was absurd, same with cash, is Yates going to be the same ? Walker maybe deserves a shot but I’d loan him for 6 months to MTFC if they go up and see what he does . We can have young players and I’m all for it if they’re any good. Gunter, chambers, mcleary, radi, Wilson, Cohen and Anderson were all early twenties or less but gelled well together for a few seasons do it can work.

5.) 19 Apr 2019 21:43:01
Guedioura should walk into that midfield on Monday after today’s shower.Early season pep was bossing games.Has a far better range of passing than Pele or Yates.

6.) 19 Apr 2019 22:01:12
Thankfully the replies are consistant with what i have seen on a regular basis. From the purchases to the academy its not very good. If grabban has been playing all season with an acilles problem then he is crock. Yes he maybe a fox in the box but he comes way to deep and is fragile in posession. Colback for all his early season promise gets booked virtually every game and is disconnected. He has ability but so has bridcutt and he has not even featured under oneil which highlights the massive squad of under average acheivers we have. Another observation their keeper was very slight but came out for crosses and dominated his box. Pantilimon, who had a decent game was still rooted on crosses. If not for yacob we would have got hammered today as the midfield was simply woefull. Sheff utd were not brilliant but they did look like a solid unit. Their manager is old school so don't harp on about we need a modern manager. Their team was full of british and irish bulldogs. In conclusion we have few players with this fluencey and endeavour and a new manager and more foreign imports is not the answer. We have a good management team of that i am convinced the squad is rag tag and valueless!!!!

7.) 19 Apr 2019 22:18:46
Good post Rutland. The season is fizzing our just like last year. Let’s not forget how dreadfully it ended last year either. There is a resilience issue at this club, said at Xmas when the usual festive capitulation transpired - very frustrating!

8.) 20 Apr 2019 08:37:10
Geddy just gives the ball away too often, puts in bad tackles around our box, and gets few passes in. He's not the answer. since Reidy left we have no creative midfielder who can dominate a game.

9.) 20 Apr 2019 10:33:13
Wish people would stop going on bout giving walker grant ect getting a chance. They are not good enough
Their looking good now because they’ve found their level.
League 2. Maybe they might cut it in league 1. But that’s bout it.
Marakinos needs to shoulder most of the blame.
With all the foreigners he brought to club.
Karanka or anyother manager wouldn’t of recommended them.

Bsered I’m not saying Guedioura is perfect but he offers something totally different to the rest of our centre mids who just want the 5 yard sideway pass.Fact is when you try difficult through balls or passes they don’t always come off but when they do it can lead to a goal or 2.Have Yacob holding and let Carvalho and Guedioura play in front with Lolley and Appiah our wide,Grabban up top.

perks , first 19 games of the season we scored 28 goals Carv was involved in 9 of them , scored 3 and 4 assists for grabban 1 for cash 1 for lolley ( not bad playing in a new team/league/country ) , Geudioura and Yacob were in a lot of those teams as well.This isn't a bad squad were just not playing as a team anymore or getting our best combining players on the pitch. which is down to the manager.

Please can we stop the get rid of martin oneil griping. Under AK we could not string two wins together. He bought poorly and wasted serious money on Carvallaho. When Oneil came in the injuries were hampering us again and the players, of which their are plenty are just not good enough. Like i said earlier he only had a few days of the window to pick up some odds and sods to get us going. Unfit and suspect is why they were available. Do not judge our management on this, give them time to clear out and bring in THEIR players. Apiah may not be ready yet, he looked a bit bewildered the other night. Yates was chasing shadows. Colback looked like he was more uncertain about his next contract than the bull he had been earlier. I truly felt that Martin was getting players on the pitch for him to see for himself whether they will be part of his plans next season. Get behind Martin and RK they are not losers by nature and will sweat blood for our club. We all know that this squad simply is not good enough, either in ability or character. So come on you know it makes sense.

Well said rutland!

Doesn't excuse the random team selections and woeful tactics, when we were still in with a shout of top 6.😐

3.) 11 Apr 2019 13:28:44
Scouse we were never going to make the top 6. Grabban and cash got injured, along with most of our central defenders at a crucial time. You cannot pstch up a back four cover full bsck suspensions and hope to be competitive. In truth Martin, again, inherited an injury cursed squad, a poor disciplined squad and the rest mainly dross. Our keeper had one decent game but then reverted to the clown he always was. Get real will you we need a good flush and a big toilet for a total clearout. Nothing less

Liam bridcutt was growing into the role end of previous season. Better mobility than colback. Landsbury was better than both on his day, good collector of yellows too. But colback is not worth the wages. Sorry but at nearly 30 he is after money not passion for promotion.

All very strange. As legally for the take over all requested funds would have to be deposited, like in a house sale, before transaction completed. Sounds like negligence from both parties is the issue and the sort of incompetence that has dogged our club for years. I really hope this is resolved quickly as with marikinakis being charged with more serious issues in Greece are we going to have our eye off the ball going into the most significant summer in the clubs recent history... the vultures, as in th FA will be watching and scrutinising!

I seem to remember him scoring 5 in 3 games from the bench pre season then not even considered in the squad from day one.
Other blankers were given the shirt and that was under warburton. He is better than murphy and grabban, both are crocked anyway, but in reality if he has only a year left then pay him off. I liked him but i doubt he will get a fair crack from the fans. I remember he scored a great goal with his first touch coming off the bench at Hull. .

How many games has Carvallaho played where the game has simply passed him by. Been out muscled out thought and his second touch a tackle? Talent he has no doubt but he is not always this good. I said a while back that he needed with drawing from the battle and spend a little time watching from the bench or stands to get a better feel for his position. Maybs this has worked wonders for him and he is being better mamaged bu oneil?

Boro had a makeshift defence and with oneil putting willing runners in cash and osborn it gave carvallho the space to operate. With 3 at the back you coukd argue it was genious by oneil??
However carvallaho looked a different player and man yesterday free of any shackles and gave praise where it is due he looked extemely good yesterdsy and well done and fairplay to him.

Gazzibaldi something similar with me. When pearce was at west ham and he broke his leg the same weekend my mrs wrote to the hammers asking if Stuart could sign a card for my 40th. Knowing Pearce was pribably just outvof hospital she thought no chance.
You can imagine her surprise and total respect when not only the card was signed but so too were photos and a really njce message from the striken pearce. It was posted from his cottage in the cotswolds. . i find it over whelming in reminicing that this legend graced our club for so long!!!!

Awesome footage. I was fortunate to be at a lot of those games. Puts modern footballers in the shade. The ted macminn tackle happenned very close to where i was seated. Pearce would still be in prison today for a tackle like that today😂😂😂😂
Great post 2star. The words legend are often used to describe a player. Its sits comfortably with this man and footballer. Psycho, psycho psycho!!!!!!!
