Interesting comments from Matty Cash being hopeful of a successful season next season saying they already have the players in place to achieve. I disagree and from his comments I think AK does too. We need to bring in much better quality and have another clear out in the summer. I think we're going to see a completely different NF side next season.

I think Cash is just being respectful and quite rightly so.
I hope that deep down he really undertands that there is a lot of work to do on the squad this summer

16 Apr 2018 22:43:39
Hurry up summertime hopefully a new forest

Did Direby win the Community Club of the year because of all if the free tickets they give away? πŸ˜‰.

It’s an interesting question isn’t it , how better are the players we’ve brought in? Would someone have scored the goals that Lolley has ? Would we have got the points we needed ? What would warbo have done in Jan to addres the alarming slide ? Of course we will never know but it’s the most worried I’ve been since feb 93 when we were still bottom of the premier league and clough emerged each game looking like a radish with sun burn.

But where does thinking like that end what if fawas didn't buy the club what if we still has Burke Britt and Antonio ect ect

15 Apr 2018 22:49:36
Anyone know when Bamford's contract is up as I don't think Middlesborough will go up. Also Oliver Burke is languishing pm WBA bench worth a loan?

Agree1 Disagree3

16 Apr 2018 07:55:13
Would love to see Burke back, we know what he's all a out, exactly what we need, a pacey winger.

Well fawaz at least your consistent in always being wrong.
Hindley Winfield Hennessey McKinley
Newton Lyons Baker Wignall Barnwell and my favourite player of all time Ian storey Moore.
1966 and my elder brother used to take me and I'd sit behind the girder at the back of the Trent end,great view and atmosphere.
We came close 66 67 but then things didn't go our way with Barnwell breaking his leg.
Once a red always a red
Seen it all Munich Amsterdam Madrid.
Wembley our second home for a while,Blackpool
The good the bad and the ugly.

79. what not so well known cup comp did forest play in in the seventies.

16 Apr 2018 09:45:26
Choosy that would be the Texaco cup or anglo scottish cup.

16 Apr 2018 10:52:39
Many memories brought back there Forest 79.I was stood on my red and white painted wooden box( would never be allowed now) with my Dad in the Trent End as an 11 year old for FA cup 6th round v Everton when Ian Storey Moore scored the Patrick and we won 3 2. I swear to God when the winner went in (after 3 attempts) the crowd was so packed that my feet didn't touch the ground (or my box) for about 5 minutes! Several Sunday papers said this should have been the Final, pulsating match with Everton fielding the likes of Alan Ball.

The only dark bit was Brian Labone deliberately nobbling Joe Baker which finished him for the season and probably cost us the double. Lahore didn't even get booked, nowadays it would be a straight red and lengthy ban! Joe was never the same player after that.I was there for the 4 one thrashing of Man Utd part of 49 000 (Bridgeford end). Was it Chris Crowe or Mike Kear hat trick? Great attacking team under Johnny Carey.Was the obscure cup competition the Anglo Scottish Texaco cup our first trophy under Clough?

16 Apr 2018 11:14:50
It's was Chris Crowe stokey and frank Wignall with the other.
Big mistake sacking Carey,like you say baker Barnwell Wignall were getting on a bit as well and Barnwell was never the same after recovering.
Was disappointed I was not allowed to go to the semi final against spurs,My mum couldn't afford for us all to go and being the youngest felt I was too young to go.
Always remember my brother painting a bowler hat red and white and putting all the names on it and seeing him off.
Spurs were always our boggey side then and he saved always seemed to score against us.
Seems somewhere along the line I've turned into a sheep fan.lolπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

16 Apr 2018 11:34:58
Meant to say Greaves always scored against us.

16 Apr 2018 14:26:56
Memory Lane F79. I remember being at cup quarters in 66/67 and my dad going mental at Brian Labone for carving Joe Baker in half very early on.
My dad was a little very placid man and at 8yrs old I never saw him so angry before or after.
We won but lost to spurs at Hillsbprough I recall ( I wasnt allowed to go with him ) but Dad blamed Labone for us not winning the double that year because Baker never played again that season.
He reckoned Baker wasnt half the player when he came back and was still moaning about it 30 yrs later.
Dad hated Labone wityh a passion

16 Apr 2018 17:16:25
Well, when I was a lad, we used to work 22 hours, live in a shoe box and got a piece of coal for Xmas. .old farts reminiscing. Love it.😁

16 Apr 2018 18:26:18
good shout 79 if u can remember us playing kilmarnock in a cold midweek match when the mist realy did roll in from the trent you must be a red ( we are all starting to sound like ron manager from the fast show )

16 Apr 2018 18:57:45
Me and my brother got a whip and hoop and an orange :).
Pudding was yorkshire pud with jam

16 Apr 2018 19:08:30
Could do with giving some of the players a whip and hoop,they might move fasterπŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

16 Apr 2018 21:58:41
Fawaz, I can't believe you called FF79 out here. You only need to read his posts to see he is a red! Even if that didn't convince you, some of his stories from the European exploits just prove that was from someone who was there!

16 Apr 2018 23:22:30
Scouseduckred a shoebox to live in! We used to dream about such things!

15 Apr 2018 20:55:03
Spot on RedRascal on young Ben. He will be a big player for us given time. What sort of ply maker do think we need, interior or exterior. Sorry mate, couldn't help myself with that one. U REDS.

I went to the game against Ipswich so this is my take on it: up until they scored both teams played the same kind of football and looked indistinguishable. We almost got caught out at the beginning of the second half when they came at us - if we had let another goal in then that would have been curtains.
Figuerido was outstanding and so was Fox, they saved us when the DMs could not. Watson had a bad day and nothing he did went right; the team played much better with more fluidity as soon as Bridcutt came on and he seemed to life the side. Colback looked clumsy, and though Guediora tried hard he did not have the pace - Cash should have been on earlier, but did little when he did come on.
The goal was not Osborn's fault, and I think he had an outstanding game. For long periods he stood alone out on the left wing and it took usually two passes to get to him and consequently Ipswich had time to cover him. To my knowledge Darikwa only once tried to get past their left back, and his approach play lacked any form of speed or guile - Cash didn't help him much when he came on. Pants didn't have too much to do but let the players know what he wanted them to do and shouted lots of encouragement. Lolley was the best player on the park, prepared to run at the defence and his goal capped a brilliant performance. Tomlin ambled about and fell over his own feet a lot - Osborn would have been much better in that position with pace to get into the defenders. Brereton worked very hard with little or no support, but the goal will give him encouragement and he made Lolley's goal, so early but hopeful days from him. Vellios looked weak and did not bustle or put himself about at all, he seems too gentle a lad to cope with Championship defenders.
Get in a good left back with some height and put BennyO behind the BrenGun and we'll have a much better team. It won't need a lot to make us more effective next season so we can get into the top Ten. If Cash can improve on the right hand side we will be more effective. From what I've seen and heard lately Dowell has blown his gaff so I wouldn't expect much more from him. I'd like us to give Cardiff a shock and steal a point, Barnsley and Bolton we can beat if we turn up.
It took us 84 minutes to turn up this weekend and the players realised the fans were drifting off after seeing another pedestrian performance. Funny how they all rushed back to the gap at the Trent end once they heard the big roar, the police and stewards holding them back! It's not over till it's over!

15 Apr 2018 21:33:12
Absolutely spot on bsered I agree with all of this. We have an excellent manager who has used what he was able to obtain in January and used those resources well to rescue us. Ben B, Osborne & Cash are or will be very important to our club . Fox and Fig played well but I still worry that the defence is somehow not right even with Colback and Watson in front still we seem to leak goals but I am not sure of the solution. let's hope against Cardiff we play to win the game and infact end the season un beaten in 5 ! Also never leave a match until the 'fat lady blows that whistle'

15 Apr 2018 21:40:04
Quality fullbacks are a must for next season bsered.They make a massive difference at both ends of the pitch.I also think it would be a bad move to blow the budget for Colback.If he wants to join on massively reduced terms and a sensible transfer fee great if not I'd be happy to give Bridcutt or Guedioura a go.Brereton needs to be used off the bench at the right times supplementing a couple of new strikers to continue his development.I actually fancy us to win a couple of the last 4 games.

15 Apr 2018 21:54:19
It's always amazed me over the years,even when we were winning everything how people leave with 10 mins to go,just to get to their cars and make a quick exit?
It's like watching a film and missing what happened or disappointing the missus and nodding off.

{Ed003's Note - that reminds me, how is Mrs Forest79 ? }

15 Apr 2018 22:12:52
Doing fine edd or Blondie as we affectionately call her has come through her opp very well and is "out of the woods" and back on form.πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

{Ed003's Note - great stuff, all the best.}

15 Apr 2018 22:23:05
Cheers edd was worrying times,but took plenty of time off to look after her,business is up and running again,health before profit.

15 Apr 2018 22:30:47
Excellent news 79 πŸ‘

15 Apr 2018 22:31:19
I’d be happy to see darikwa and lichaj go and get Gunger back who should never have been sold in the first place. Best rightback for years

15 Apr 2018 22:43:43
Cheers perks knew you loved me really.
Don't be too nice though spoil the banter?.πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

16 Apr 2018 03:34:29
You know it's only footy bants end of the day.Fellow Reds fans stick together when it really matters.

15 Apr 2018 17:30:19
Now we are safe how about we field our reserve team against Barnsley? I’m Sure Birmingham will understand and accept it as the swings and roundabouts of championship football.

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Apr 2018 17:58:02
2 star now were safe there is one thing that could put the icing on the cake and that would be the sheep not to make the playoffs,preferably by goal difference,What a killer blow that would be for them. πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

15 Apr 2018 18:10:34
Lol! Stop pretending not to be a derby fan you’re not fooling me!
I reckon Barnsley will do them for sure on the last game. Thought it for weeks when I looked at our run in and those around us. Is it right derby have Villa, Boro and a very revved up revengeful Cardiff too?

15 Apr 2018 18:34:32
I'll take your word for it on their run in.
You seem to know more than me on that one😁😁

15 Apr 2018 19:12:59
Can you check the fixture list for me ? You should have one with your season card πŸ’ͺπŸ˜‚

15 Apr 2018 21:04:27
My favourite derby player is Keogh absolute forest legend.πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

15 Apr 2018 21:21:45
Went to my local shop Today. Sheep(woman) fan works there . She has been giving me stick all season. Unusually quiet today.I wonder why.Needless to say I was reasonably vocal much to the amusement of the people queuing behind me.COYRs

15 Apr 2018 21:49:06
Are you sure it's a women under all that fur?
Be careful you might get yourself "Bahhhhd" πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

15 Apr 2018 22:32:32
Lol Keogh actually looks like a sheep - honestly if you stuck that face in sheeps body ?

15 Apr 2018 22:48:02
Behave someone tried that before and that's what it came out like,could have suffocated?πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

16 Apr 2018 21:27:25
F79 I can now confirm it's a woman at the shop. She's called ewenice😏

15 Apr 2018 17:17:02
Scored one, maade one in a two one victory and still gets stick from some so called Forest fans. Yes, young Brereton must wonder what else he can do. Eighteen in the fifth toughest league against seasoned pros who also outnumber the lad two to one because of our one up front system. He was almost ruined by Warburton out wide and to much is expected of him now by AK. A couple of years down the line this youngster will be very close to the real deal if he is managed properly, ie selected games and impact sub. It is a real cheap shot to blame Ben for Forests current goalscoring woes. Perhaps looking back, if Warburton had spent the two million plus much better than he wasted on Murphy and another million on Cummings we would not have been in this mess and blaming a teenager. Stick with it BB and take no notice of the critics, I look forward to you making them eat there words in the not to distant future. And as a man in agreen sweatshirt would have said, well done young man.

Agree8 Disagree2

15 Apr 2018 17:58:21
Do you think Murphy will play for us again?😐

15 Apr 2018 18:11:47
Hope not. Warburton. Can pay for his one way ticket back to Rogie land . Ayup Rogie why don’t you come over and pick him up?
