So carvalaho is an important part of my plans claims Lamouchi. That ship has sailed SL and if you want anything from him you play him down the middle not out wide. However, bored of saying this, carvalaho has not the pace, strength or power to stamp any authority on a game. He has failed to push for a starting position as obviously he can't do it in training either.

Disappointed to hear that SL is still going down this road. JC is history i would rather see Mighten given the wide birth and a decent no 10 brought in. Also getting tired of the high earners and 30+yr olds being linked with us. The financial implications of getting a goalscorer seem too risky, and could bite us as our history dictates. Would rather see a hungry prospect from the lower leagues at sensible money as to be fair staying top 6 this season should be acheivable with just a tweak to our attacking options and a midfield general!

Good post Rutland.
JC hasn't justified his ridiculous price tag.
This transfer window will show how seroius forest are about promotion.

2.) 15 Jan 2020 13:22:35
We already have a hungry prospect from the lower leagues. He is called Tyler Walker and would cost us nothing.

3.) 15 Jan 2020 13:49:22
Yes redcyclist. I agree but it seems he us contracted till for the season. Weird one that.

4.) 15 Jan 2020 15:43:04
If they won't release Tyler Walker then we tell them that's the last time we loan them a player. Don't bit the hand that feeds you.

5.) 15 Jan 2020 17:51:51
Walker as found his level guys. He’s not what we need right now.
Prem beckons. We need a proven championship forward 2 preferably. We need a plan b of 2 upfront when playing 1 isn’t working. If Gayles injury isn’t that bad I’d pay his wages which would be a approx 1m for rest of season.
How much would we pocket if we get to prem at least 120m. definitely worth gamble. I’d also bring murry in to give us extra option tactically. Then all we need is a winger Get it done.

6.) 15 Jan 2020 18:02:05
Redred. count gayle out he is on £65000 a week and we have to this plus he wouldn't play second fiddle to grabben.
The board knew we needed another forward months ago but instead of being proactive nothing but rumours and lousy journalism has paired us with every striker in the country it seems.
If we aren't careful and grabben gets injured the goals would dry up!

7.) 15 Jan 2020 18:44:42
RedRed, SL isn't going to play 2 upfront, its not his style. So who sits on the bench Gayle who is costing us a lot of money, or Grabban who is scoring goals and is happy?

Thats why Walker would be better. Knows where the goal is and would be our main second striker.

8.) 15 Jan 2020 19:40:24
Walker is a developing player. He hasn't "found his level" at all. He was never a bad player just a young one learning. He is a goalscorer. They are hard to find.

Walker will have a decent career and would be great as one of three front men - which is how many we need if we have one up front. If we get an injury then we will still need two front men.

Walker has done well in matches against Premier League opposition in the past. Remember Newcastle in the cup? Probably not but I do. He is quick, strong now and knows where the net is.

9.) 15 Jan 2020 19:53:34
When he played for Warburton there was one game Walker had the ball come to him from the other teams goal area and from about 20 yards volled it straight in, it was a sight to see. I however have a dreadful memory as of who the other team was.

10.) 15 Jan 2020 21:57:07
Think it was QPR remember the goal.
His goal last night from 20 yards was a beauty as well.
He knows where the net is and will score in the championship, which he already has.
Red red just go to a casino mate and stick your house on red, it can't fail.
Playing two up front is definitely the way forward, I mean everyone plays it? 😊😊
Lamouchi is the best signing we've made in years so let him tell the owners what he needs, more likely to to se 3 up front than two with two holding midfielders.

11.) 15 Jan 2020 22:07:35
Rutland the answer is to ditch Silva he's far worst than carvalho.
You won't get any goals and no assists at all.
His record for clubs in Portugal shows he won't and at 27 he's not going to improve.

12.) 15 Jan 2020 22:37:42
Sorry he's 26 and played his football in Portugal in league two which is like our league one or two, enough said.



17 Apr 2019 23:24:18
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!

rutland red1

1.) 18 Apr 2019 08:10:31
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.

23 Feb 2020 09:00:05
The score yesterday was no more than expected as we cannot dominate teams at home. Only 2 shots on target reflects our lack of decisive creativity.
Is it Lamouchi? It might be, as swapping Ameiobi for the the lump that is yates seemed bizarre if you are going for the points.
It could be that Lamouchi is scuppered with another bunch of drosse brought in in Jan. Keep saying you cannot make a silk purse from a pigs ear, can't say sow for obvious reasons lol.
Watched a lot of the Brentford game again and they have real purpose in their attack whether played out from the back or worked from centre mid.
Lamouchi has without doubt gelled a defensive effecient team and praiseworthy for that. Buf is the lack of creativity a weakness within him or abstract failure from the board in giving him the quality tools. I can't fathom the lack of investment in even half decent attakers at this crucial time. And one or two have been signed permenantly. Very odd.

rutland red1

1.) 23 Feb 2020 09:26:41
Perfectly put yet again Rutland. If we attacked like Brentford at home we would have won the league already. But alas a garbage Jan window of cast offs and unwanted players. 6 in defence at home and this one striker gig is one thing I'll never accept.
Missed a big chance this year as the standard is truly second rate but unfortunately so are we. At home we are an asomniacs dream cure.
Lamouchi coming out with the same sound bites after every home match is getting boring too.

2.) 23 Feb 2020 09:39:39
You can5 say we sat back defending against QPR we attacked them constantly and cash a reberio spent more time in the opposition half than their own, that's not negative.

3.) 23 Feb 2020 09:44:27
The managers style needs players that are quick so they can get forward with zest and catch the other team out, which will make even the most free flowing teams more wary of getting many players forward, but at the same time so they can get back quick enough to help the team out defensively.

The managers system does stifle creativity to a point as no player is allowed a free role because in order for the managers style to work everyone is expected to defend.

The amount of midfielders at the club is too many yet there is only Sow who can play the way he does, and so well, which makes the way the manager wants the team to play work perfectly.

We will only ever have one striker in the Grabban mode at the club while we play the way we do, the rest are going to need to be in the Lolley mode, someone that chips in with a good amount goals but not a out and out striker.

The team will evolve if the manager stays but who knows Forest are not a club to stand by managers, but this one is the best for a while.

4.) 23 Feb 2020 10:27:50
2 shots on target, one less than them. Constant attacking and content failure as usual at home. I know your always banging on about announce promotion 79 but forget it pal its over. It ain't happening and we ain't good enough sadly.
Paul Hart all over again. Just invest in a bit of quality in January and it's back to the Premier league but alas history repeats it's self.

5.) 23 Feb 2020 11:01:59
Long way to go yet balloons you go and throw the towel in I'll keep being positive.

6.) 23 Feb 2020 11:24:45
Can you see any of the teams in the top 6 beating us over two legs? in fact beating us at all?
That is why I will stay positive because if we get in the play offs these team will attack us and we play better when they do.



18 Feb 2020 16:22:35
Red cyclist and cjay hage been making good points re team selection rotation, injuries etc. The overall concern is the system that SL sets up. It is a very negative defensive formation. If we concede first then teams know how to nulify our predictable threat. Too many times we have only one attacker in the box and Lewis at times is so casual he misses more than he scores. When we were chasing the game we pushed more players forward and looked more threatening, then that's matty cash he carries a threat and will always get a shot away and quickly when in an advanced position. Silva carries little threat and the rest are defensive minded. Ameiobi, well you never know with him, he could be utter brilliant but beats himself a lot of the time. What i am saying is i dislike the stagnat formation. We just do not get enough players forward fast enough with incisive passing. And you cannot deny the schoolboy approach to our chaps running with the ball then stopping and saying here you have a go. It lacks bite and cohesion. The 5 brought in in january don't appear to have an attacking edge that offers any contrast to what we have. Cash and lolley combine well but then cash puts in a decent cross to one of the smallest strikers in the leagueand he is generally on his own. Its fair play to SL that we have generally maintained a top six slot but we just can't attract or identify solid powerful inteligent attack minded centre mids or that all important 2nd striker or a different option to Grabban. Interesting 2 months ahead as the hand is played!

rutland red1

1.) 18 Feb 2020 17:00:34
Think this depends on your perceptions of our players strengths. I don't agree we should be pushing players higher up the pitch, purely because we're better on the break, We've got nothing on the books who can play a pass through the lines and we've built a defense first approach that's got us here.

Its dull to watch but it gets results, for it to work, Watson has to stay deep, so does Sow, Silva has to get the ball out wide and that's where we attack. The rest is up to individual bursts from the wingers or full backs.

Lamouchi played this way at Rennes, it won't change and I don't think he's anything more than harder work to bring to them home games where we struggle to break teams down. He's literally said as much.

I agree the recruitment Jan recruitment was dross.

2.) 18 Feb 2020 17:50:37
R R1 as regards grabban, think you’ll find all strikers miss more than they score.

6.) 18 Feb 2020 20:49:48
What let's down your arguments rutland is grabban is one of the top scorers in this league and has been for the last 3 or 4 seasons,
We do attack with purpose and the system is one that liverpool adopt and many others, we have lolley and cash bang on form on one side and reberio and ameobi on the other, two defensive midfielders in sow and Watson with a grafter in there in silva, the idea is a 433 like liverpool, think your very old school in how you want us to play.
We just don't have good back up for our best eleven we have two or three players that can cover but that's it.
Biggest problem is when sow is injured or rested as Yeats can't fill that void.
All in all Lamouchi has done a fantastic job and I've enjoyed the season and will continue to do so, just don't want to see wholesale changes against the so called lesser teams, its been Lamouchi downfall if any criticism is aimed at him it's for that and the results prove it.

7.) 18 Feb 2020 21:07:16
I don’t like the stagnent formation that’s got us into a position we would all of given our right nuts for at the start of the season.

8.) 18 Feb 2020 22:10:12
Stagnant would place us bottom of the league mon, not sure what rutland wants?
It's about progression and we are progressing, been a good season for us but still not good enough for rutland, we don't make it this season then we will do it next, it might mean losing cash but that money would ensure our future.
Yes Lamouchi has made mistakes but has shown he has the recipe for success, still convinced we will do it this season, but not with resting players.

9.) 18 Feb 2020 22:24:31
And probably the left nut as well.

10.) 18 Feb 2020 22:35:51
I'm scratching both now wondering why rutland wants the coach out?
Best we've had for many years but not up to his standards?
Like I've said he's made a few mistakes but on the whole been brilliant and got players believing in their ability got something special in our goalkeeper and defence to build on imo.
Made us some money with the value of worrall and cash going through the roof, so well done Lamouchi, no more resting though please 🍻🍻.

11.) 18 Feb 2020 23:20:45
Agreed just think where we were last season at least we are there abouts.

12.) 19 Feb 2020 00:09:03
were where we are because we have a good manager he's made mistakes even I've questioned but where we are at the minute is down to him nobody can argue that fact apart from what could of been what might of been blah blah blah as far as I'm concerned I got us top 6 January and wasn't backed in the transfer window to finish the season off that's not down to him that's down to the owner to give him the money for the players he wants buck stops with owner now where we finish its that simple.

13.) 19 Feb 2020 05:41:34
Rutland do you think we will stay up this season? with these poor tactics and poor attacking personnel I think it’s going to be tough but what do you think, stay up or league 1.

Remember in the first few months of the season when qpr were banging in loads of goals being open and doing well is that what you want? where are they now in the table? they are where they are because they havnt got a dare I say it Watson 😲 and sow in front of there defence, if we didn’t have them just think where we would be.

14.) 19 Feb 2020 07:06:36
79 not sure where i said i want rid of lamouchi. I merely state that we are still about two attacking options short to carry more threat going forward. Grabban is a fox in the box and our style of play not suited to his best attributes. He has to run all over the shop for little reward.

Our style would definitely suit a big lump up top with grabban feeding off him. Like you say ameiobi, cash and lolley can get good crosses in but unless they are across the 6 yard box and low grabban is not a target man. To his credit he has persevered and notched his usual double figures.

Other than the charlton debacle i have grown to admire lamouchi. don't always agree with his style or formation but he has courage for his convictions and i believe honest enough.

Rr1 mate if we had a big lump up front with grabban feeding off him, we’d lose our numbers in midfield which makes us difficult to break down Sl whole style is based on this, so your never going to see 2 up front unless we’re chasing the game late on.

Problem is rutland we aren't going to play 442 anymore regardless of the coach, its a system very few use anymore as you get overrun in midfield, I enjoyed the WBA game only Charlton left a bad taste.

17.) 19 Feb 2020 19:24:33
Agreed 79 and stevief. Just hoped the lads broughtvin in jan would have been more streetwise and tougher!

Lamouchi had no say in who was bought in just identified what he needed in certain areas
Shame the recruitment staff aren't up to Lamouchi standards.
Having said that they did give us reberio, samba and sow and ameobi in the summer, not many clubs even in the premier signed players of note in the January window, its a 2aste of time now trying to bring in good players in Jan window and for them to hit the ground running.

Ribeiro has potential for cult status for sure.

This result today put lamouchi in the spotlight agsin and how he responded. He always says the right things, honest and passionate. The aquistions are not much maybe they will come good. But lamouchi needs backing as i can see him doing it, if not this season then next. Their is something about him for sure.

He’s honest knows the team’s limitations and plays to their strengths. In return the lads are onboard and won’t to play for him.

2.) 15 Feb 2020 20:22:09
That depends if Lamouchi is still here guys?

3.) 15 Feb 2020 20:31:49
I’m thinking next season he won’t be here probably already signed a pre contract with olmpiacos.

4.) 15 Feb 2020 21:08:59
He will be here next season and hopefully the prem, a bit less tinkering and we would nearly be there.
Knows how to set a team up to be hard to beat.
Only had to criticise him once and that was tuesday.

5.) 16 Feb 2020 09:50:10
If we don't get promotion I don't think he will get another contract.



15 Feb 2020 16:14:12
Lots of stuff to discuss today. Samba was awesome, ribiero outstanding and the best leftback we have had in years. Figs was inspirational and watson for me was terrific with a cool head. Cash gave a 5 star performance and his quick feet in getting the space to deliver that exocet incredible. I like ameobi unpredictable with his languid style but on his day a cut above. It would be petty to knock any of the lads but really we need more grit and incision than silva delivers.
It was a difficult day for football but our fooyball was schoolboy stuff at times with fitst touch and poor poor passing. We are missing fluidity that comes with quality and it makes it difficult going into the final third of the season.
My overall feeling is pride at the heart shown by the lads. You cannot fault thst effort and passion. Lamouchi is better than that debackle of tuesday and he has gone a long way in making it a distant memory. This team play for lamouchi and most will die for the cause. Admirable. Do we carry enough goal threat to get the job done.

Bit concerned about Grabbans finishing in his last few games.
He's not had too much to go at in the way of clear cut chances but has missed some absolute sitters recently.
If his goals dry up our goal threat will be severely diminished.

2.) 15 Feb 2020 17:06:31
Fred we scored two and one was an own goal that grabs would have missed😁😁
Know what your saying pal but goals are coming from elsewhere.
Bambi put a sublime cross in for that own goal.
Give me bambi over that diakhaby that comes on every game. i know he's used to huddersfield but he needs to leave that rubbish behind.

I agree red hot but though blessed with skilĺ silva does not impact on enough games and maybe its pace that let's him down can't fault his effort something Missing at this level.

Our back four and keeper are amoungst the best in the league. And our holding two very strong. It will be scrappy odd goal victories for sure. Very interesting two months scouse.

Its not the first time. And why make such an elementary error at this crucial stage of the season. The players who battled so valiantly against Leeds etc will not be happy to see their efforts wiped out by a piss poor shambles lastnight. Instead of going into the Albion game bouyed a point or three, its roll your sleeves up and try and regroup agajnst a rampant powerfull wba.

Smithy we have lost 8 games now probably most at home. This one hurts the most as SL keeps making simple stupid mistakes. Yes he owns up but has he learned from them? The players that came in look simply awful. Us bringing in a player that has not featured in huddersfields last 19 games says much about the quality!

I keep saying schoolboy football when we attack. Can't get to matches until next year but i can imagine how labourious our approach would be.

It was a battling performance and the result admirable. But like you said that was our best eleven, plus the full complement of subs. However, only one shot on target, the goal from cash and he is a fullback. Out touch, control and passing was poor and their was very little cohesive football. Yes the conditions were blustery but it was the same for both teams and Albion were far more assured in pass and move and had goal threats from all over the pitch. You might say i am being petty but you saw it for yourself. Awkward viewing again and as much as Silva may have improved he still offers little in what should be a commanding role.
A great result with some outstandng performances however we lack conviction in the latter third and are easily out manouvred here.
