We drew against Burton, and Reading, the lads did not cover themselves in a great light but against Reading they finally showed the character to come back from a goal down.

That is nothing to scream from the rooftops, but I'm hoping it is a small glint of light of promise of improvement.

We have Qpr, and Birmingham next then some tough games, although some might be worrying about those games i'm not, even with the deadwood we quite often were able do well against the so called tougher teams.

When we play Millwall, will we be out played and win like it was for Mr Fine Margins, play well and get beat, or play well and win? No one knows off course.

That game will be the real barometer of the progress, if any under Aitor, most of the new players should by then be as fit as they can as well as Aitor by then knowing his best 11.

Things never run smooth on the pitch for Forest but i'm hoping at least they are beginning to look up by the Millwall game.

Just watched the sheep against leeds what a load of tosh they served up it seems we are in good company about on par with some of our recent performances 😕

We'll said mate,I know Karanka's not everyone's cup of tea, however as I said weeks ago,we are stuck with him whether we like it or not,for I don't think anyone can take the embarrassment of yet another managerial appointment.Also wouldn't it be great if we could go on a decent run of form,and in turn,generate some much needed banter,and positivity on here??? So Aitor,it's up to you to deliver mate, please don't let us down!!!PS (this must be the longest post I've out on here lol!!!)

we,ve raised our game against Arsenal,Wolves and the second half v Reading but after each game we,ve slipped back to being poor with passionless displays , how can we find some consistency,how can the manager get the team to perform at a decent level on a regular basis ,we the fans only ask of the players to give everything but they just seem unable to do this ,is it can,t or won,t?

To say the second half was the most fluent football you've seen all season is vastly liberating last night's performance .
It was a good comeback in a game we didn't deserve to lose.
It was a fair result on the night.

First half was on a par with the Preston and hull games,second half we improved and manage 3 or 4 shots on target and got our reward for the effort.
It's a platform to build on hopefully.

The dust will settle over the next few games as the "match stats" Karamoaners will have been disarmed when we put a run of form together towards the end of the season . This in itself will be a change from previous regimes where we always finish with a cough and splutter and squeaky bums!

Still on course for 60-65 points which if everyone is being honest we would have happily settled for at the start of the season?

Too many half empty glasses from seasons past so please park your sniping and embrace the Spring clean that has now started in earnest!

Talk of Karanka out is a joke. A new manager would be able to nothing, no loan playes in. The Window is shut. Only players available are free agents and there are not many of thnem about. I cannot see him being sacked. He knew straight away that the defence was a problem and he has done his best to sort it. To be honest I am pleasaed with he last 2 draws, we are not coceding as many as under the breadman.

Totally agree but can also understand the frustrations at the moment may be not the booing but again people pay gud money to support forest so are entitled to their opinions. I think we will be ok and AK can be a half decent manager but my frustrations come from just being woeful season after season new man out new man out, umpteen loan players sum of whom I forgot even played for us. In fact it's been such a long-time since we been In the prem it would be a massive shock and rebuilding process. Gone are the days of Roy, Collymore and co, best forest team in a long time, best side to watch on sky too.

The Booo boys were there again, not such a fluent half but there you go. When Tomlin scored he went to a corner and asked the fans a question. To applaud, and support the team, fans were quick enough to Booo . Their is a section of fans on here that no matter what AK does they will never forgive him for being MW's replacement, remember MW and his pal's left for whatever reason. Hopefully AK gets us safe, but no matter what happens I hope that you persecuted fans carry on with your dogged determination of not accepting AK, you would just love it for him to fail. Oh yes you would, then you could say "told you so". Supporters, support, MW is not coming back.

I don't understand booing the players, you don't have to pay to see them you can listen on the radio or Forest player and rant and rave to your hearts delight,i suspect they have made there minds up before they go not to enjoy it, are they the travelling Skegsjays😕😕we are all disappointed at the moment but work in progress fine margins etc 😀😀

It’s difficult when you have a season ticket oj, you kind have feel you have to go. That said if I feel myself getting too angry I just go home. I’ve set three new records for myself this season and have found the team really hard to watch if I’m honest.

21 Feb 2018 17:19:58
last night's second half was probably the most fluent fast passing exciting football we've played all season you could sense the passion of the players long may it continue

21 Feb 2018 17:20:17
And there it is a work in progress where have we heard that one before 😂 OJ I would imagine fans that pay there hard earned money to go watch forest are entitled to boo if the players that are getting thousands a week to perform don’t.i would imagine if they had something to cheer about they would but Karanka as been so hyped up that no fans where expecting the crap results against crap teams oh well it’s like we’ve said with every other manager before Karanka it’s a work in progress bye bye ☝️

Agree2 2Disagree

21 Feb 2018 18:00:17
Just remember that their is another team on the pitch trying just as hard not to loose, being paid good bucks and their supporters have also spent their hard earned money. They also want a return for their investment.The thing for me last night was the ref, he had control of the game to start with, and slowly lost it,then trying to control it with yellow cards.One linesman called a forest player offside in the second half and clearly was yards onside, poor.These poor decisions can decide clubs fates , we have seen more poor decisions than poor forest displays and that's saying something.

1951 nail on the head with your original post. AK is the bad guy to a few hardcore Warbaniers because the OWNERS decided to make a change. Quite happy for Warbo to have a 10 month crack at the job with shocking performances and results littered throughout but not anyone else.I don't remember anyone hyping up Karanka just recognition of his achievements at Boro.Onwards and upwards ☝🏻☝🏻☝🏻

Agree3 3Disagree

21 Feb 2018 19:11:49
Totally agree 1951, we are all getting frustrated with the reds, at the beginning of the season we all had some optimism for the season, especially with the pre-season games, Warburton created his own downfall, and lost the support of some of the players, this has been happening for years now and cost many managers there jobs,
At least AK has got the cahooners to change things, and I believe he will, the players power now needs to change.
The second half performance was unbelievable compared to the first half, after a rollicking at half time, for me the players need to show some respect, to the manager and to us fans and owners who keep paying there wages.

I’m sorry but don’t accept that because you have paid to watch Forest justifies booing at a game.
Achieves nothing infect makes the situation worse.
How many times do people on here say the crowd can help the players and raise them. It’s bad enough at games when the stadium is deadly quiet with the fans nerves causing tension, that surely transfers to the players.
Then booing at half time further destroys any little confidence the players may have.
They know when they have played poorly.
Fans should go to the match to support not to rant , moan and boo.
Save that for forums like this one to vent your anger.
Our home form is probably down to dreading playing at the City Ground. .not ideal.

Agree4 2Disagree

21 Feb 2018 19:41:18
Polskared the hope home form and away form is down to bad tactics and bad players it’s that simple nothing to do with the crowd booing that happens at every ground if a team plays bad

Agree1 2Disagree

21 Feb 2018 19:41:25
It's not to do with warbo hardliners for me it's the promise the owners made in the open letter for a season of stability.
Regardless who was the manager for me I still wanted them to be there at the end of the season.
All you get is what your seeing now,big change in staff and players with no guarantee it will bring success.
Fans get devided with their opinions and we get some give it time and others who see it as it is no improvement.
Me personally I'm annoyed with the owners for panicking, so far it's not working and I don't get carried away by a nil nil at Burton and a home draw with reading.
We have QPR Birmingham coming up and need some points,after that we have some very tough games and then we'll see if we've progressed?

Agree3 0Disagree

21 Feb 2018 19:59:38
Polskered.that argument doesn't stand up my freind as they got booed at half time yesterday and it actually ad the right effect and the crowd got behind them because suddenly the tactics changed and we posed a threat going forward.
You can't ask people to say nice things and be happy when the entertainment value is poor whether that's a show a film or a football match.
You pay your money to be entertained at the end of the day.

Man and groan all you like but you have to respect AK when he said "there was nothing wrong with the tactics . I told them the tactics before the game. At half time I told them to go out and get stuck in".

It was the players fault and he stuck by his guns because he'd done the preparation work and the players didn't do their jobs. Simple!

More of that please Mr K and more sackings at the end of the season.

Agree3 2Disagree

21 Feb 2018 20:46:52
Perks all I would say is so far under Karanka have you enjoyed watching the football?
If you have the there is something seriously wrong with your eyesight.
It's ok saying everything will be alright,but just tell us why it will?
What have you seen so far that you convince us all that he will be succesfull?
Not talking about the past a Boro,Just what you've seen so far?

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Feb 2018 20:55:08
No 22 he changed tactics it was more or less three up.
He started one up not having that mate.
So your saying get rid of more?
A lot on offer last night he signed.

So if the reds played crap with bad tactics but won several games on the trot and were looking like being promoted would you boo the team off at the end of the game ? I think most fans wouldn’t.
I for one would be happy to see the beloved reds win any way they can

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Feb 2018 21:49:18
79 I'm only going to say what I've said previously.When he was appointed at Boro they were poor,like us now.It took him 2 and a half seasons,yes seasons to rebuild and find the winning formula.So he knows what's required to do this,got the badge,t-shirt the lot.Dont underestimate how unsettling the clearout would have been and how difficult to then integrate 10 new players and create a new team spirit.I certainly don't expect all this to have clicked into place in 7 weeks.If you do that's fine but my opinion is your being totally unrealistic.We still need to strengthen key areas,back 4 and a quality striker to name a few.But as we've all said this can't be done in 1 transfer window.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2018 22:07:19
I totally agree, it's all about results, performance is an added bonus to the 3 points which is the most important thing

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2018 22:12:51
FF79 so why haven’t the boo’s at half time and full time affected the last 10 games ?
Could be the manager has given chances to players and now dishing out rollockings and ultimatums, maybe it was Karanka who turned the game yesterday ?
There are chinks of light.
Dead wood being off loaded
Less goals being conceded though results still poor
Players brought in giving more bite to the play
Players brought in getting fitter as they weren’t playing with previous clubs
Players brought in getting used to the managers systems.

And a thought who of us flourish from constant criticsm and apathy ?

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2018 22:39:56
So perks it's going to take a few seasons?
Well I'll tell you something now,the Greeks don't give you that long.
And like I said other than.boro, which you.keep harping on about.
What have you seen?
And why if it takes two and a half seasons why didn't they stand by warbo and give him time ?
The Greeks are impatient for success,but only on a shoe string.
That's a very hard thing to do in this league.
Unless you have a proven savy manager who really knows this league and what it takes to get you out of it.

Best news since Fawas did one, Skegman leaving his armchair and going to Boston. What have they done to deserve that. Shame he will miss the great revival under AK but I think we will just about get by. U REDS.

You really do need to get out more. I realise it's winter and in places like Skeggy the Sad Syndrome its hard until Spring. But really cheer up the club is in a better place than its been since the days of donkeys on the beach?

when Karanka shows me something to be happy about then I will be happy it’s that simple some fans come on here like he’s gods gift of a manager lol 5 points from 21 a point each against 2 bottom clubs and we’re singing and dancing about get a grip please .im entitled to my opinion like anyone else on here and if Karanka does turn things around I will be the first to apologise and say well done not a problem but I’m not going to sit here and say he’s doing a good job when the points on the board speak facts at the minute Karanka is no better than the Wally with the Brolley in fact the points say he’s useless let’s see if he can prove me wrong I’m quite happy to be proved wrong but for now he’s utter garbage

Well earned point and as much battling in the second half as I've seen at home for a while.
Figueiredo looked good and if he continues like this will hopefully be worth a punt in the summer.
Together with fox looked as solid a central pair as I've seen this season.
Tomlin looked a class act ( which he is ) and hopefully keeps his head right and carries on performing.
A proper left back and things will start to take shape even more.

Releagtion ??? . . . . not a chance !!!


Agree6 3Disagree

21 Feb 2018 11:48:01
Game of 2 halves! Just wish we could play the full 90 like we did the second half when, at times, we zipped it around like Brazil circa 1970! Reading chasing shadows last 45. Figueroa and Fox solid again but man of the man goes to Tomlinson! Not bad for a fat lad who looks like a bus driver (apologies to any bus drivers out there but you know what I mean) he's Karankas one luxury player apart from young Dowell so he won't do much defensively but he can save or win us a game. Good point as we inch our way to safety and rebuild for next season hopefully. COYR!

Agree8 1Disagree

21 Feb 2018 12:01:23
Good post Stokey, watched the highlights and couldn't believe some of the negative posts on here. Baby steps granted but progress none the less. QPR away and Birmingham at home, min 4 points required, then I'll start to think about being safe. FTID.

AK out, ridiculous comment. He is a good manager that needs time

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Feb 2018 11:30:11
Hope we can get Lee Tomlin on a permanent deal at the end of the season, one of the best footballers to play for the Reds for years. Played just behind the striker he will score and be our main playmaker. Thought the three at the back of Pantilimon, Figueiredo and Foxy were very good. When we get a pair of proper fullbacks in with those three we will be much more solid than we have been for a long time. Watson and Colback add some protection for the back four and steel i'm midfield. Lolley looks the part and will only get better. Why AK plays Dowell is a puzzle, he as scored some good goals but when you need scrappers as we do now, he gives the team very little. Really enjoyed the second half effort put in by both the players and the City Ground faithful. Long time since I could say that. U REDS.

Agree9 1Disagree

21 Feb 2018 18:52:39
Totally agree Retford.I noticed a left back deemed surplus to requirements notched for Barnsley. Warbo 👇🏻

21 Feb 2018 08:08:37
It takes a long time to recover from major surgery, but the operation was needed to remove the rot running through the team. It looks like we're starting to heal and we just need a few more changes to get there.
I think vellios in place of brereton in the second half would've maybe got one. Brereton has believed all the hype around him from when he broke in to the team, and now swaggers around the pitch with a bad attitude. Also, once Fuentes is fit enough to slot in to left back we'll look more balanced.

Agree12 2Disagree

21 Feb 2018 08:41:33
I would agree with that. Osborn at left back is a temporary move, and both the goal and most attacks yesterday came in that area. Once Fuentes is fit the team will look very different. We will get goals both with Brereton and with Murphy/Vellios if Tomlin doesn't get injured. Dowell is a question mark since Cash has more speed and aggression.

Agree10 1Disagree

21 Feb 2018 18:54:10
Brereton needs to be an impact man from the bench for the rest of the season.

Agree2 0Disagree

21 Feb 2018 20:19:56
brereton needs to be at home on match days. since he got into the team on a regular basis he as dropped off the boil. he wastes too many chances, same as cash. i hope worral injured for rest of season. no mistakes from where he usually plays. karanka will get the best out of the seasoned pros. leave the kids on the bench for now
