Think Mondays game will be one of fine margin,s

Agree0 Disagree1

12 Dec 2018 11:57:38
Cannot say I'm feeling very optimistic, wish I could.

12 Dec 2018 14:16:28
I am!!! Let's give'm a Christmas Stuffing!!!

12 Dec 2018 17:19:48
I agree Rogie. I think we'll give them a roasting.

13 Dec 2018 05:33:31
Of we had figs and dawson I would feel a lot better nervous without them

12 Dec 2018 10:29:53
Oliveira off to Besiktas for 2.5m. Still only 27 years old. What an absolute steal!

Agree2 Disagree1

12 Dec 2018 13:30:15
He did ok for us at a difficult time, and if he could convert more of his chances in front of goal, he could be an amazing player. I'd say £2.5m is pretty accurate of his worth.

12 Dec 2018 18:18:25
In todays market I'd say its a steal. At Championship level, in a good team he can score goals, and lots of them. Less than half of what we paid for grabban and 6m for him is starting to look like a bargain.

13 Dec 2018 00:53:13
well he wasn't worth the 5m Norwich paid for him and think he's a disruptive influence in the dressing room.

11 Dec 2018 17:07:19
It's so exciting. Just 21 more sleeps til we get a new goalkeeper.

Agree6 Disagree0

11 Dec 2018 21:04:48
But who gazza
Butland ?
Darlow ?

11 Dec 2018 22:09:53
No chance of Butland I think.
I've always liked Heaton.

11 Dec 2018 22:10:37
All of them till we find who works best lol

11 Dec 2018 22:17:14
Bet he doesn't bring a goalie in,no matter what the fans or press say about pants.
Just saying

12 Dec 2018 00:13:44
That could cost him is job 79 I know what your saying about being stubborn but now we have dof he might not have a say in the matter which can only be a good thing 😁

12 Dec 2018 05:58:39
Krankie will stick with Pants.
I'd be very surprised if he does go for a new keeper.
Like skeg and FF say ak is stubborn.
Pants will cost us even more games if a new keeper isn't brought in.

12 Dec 2018 08:34:02
We can all see Pantillimons frailties so don't think that AK is too blinkered to see them too. He'll be very well aware of the issue that is Pants and will look to sort it out in Jan. But for now, he's keeping him in the team for continuity. Forster is the man I'd like to see come in.

12 Dec 2018 15:08:23
You are all talking a load of Pants!

AK is not being stubborn in his selection he is being loyal to the players he has brought in which is essential to bonding and building a team.

You were all moaning at the start of the season about his chopping and changing and now bar injury and suspension he has a settled back 6 which is why we are where we are at the top of the league, keeping clean sheets and only 3 defeats.

He is ruthless in replacing players not performing in the squad where he has better options. Steele was signed as back up because Smith is not experienced enough over the season so he currently has no better keeper options!

It’s clear that there will be some much better goalkeepers available in January compared to last summer so expect our ruthless manager to dispense with some of his earlier signings if he can upgrade on them including getting someone with even bigger Pants between the sticks!

Onward & Upward

12 Dec 2018 20:03:27
It won't take a lot of doing to upgrade some of his players 😁😁

11 Dec 2018 15:42:51
Yaya Toure has had his contract terminated at Olympiacos, we all know what that means.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Dec 2018 18:00:46
He's hanging up his boots in Europe and will have a swan song in China?

11 Dec 2018 20:23:13
I suppose it's in his nature to travel being called Toure.

11 Dec 2018 11:31:09
Daniel Taylor has written an article for Nottinghamshire Live. The more I learn about Marinakis the more optimistic I become about his ownership of NFFC. His ethos seems to be that Forest are not just at the heart of the community but that the community are also at the heart Forest. We're going to need a bigger ground!

Agree2 Disagree0

11 Dec 2018 18:01:53
Spot on he will build it around a Sporting Club in order to get private and public funding for the project. I can see this happening in Eastside.
Hopefully he is monitoring the fans forum to weed out the non-believers and closet sheep?

11 Dec 2018 20:24:33
Blimey is he omniscient as well?

11 Dec 2018 21:53:27
The city ground is one of the few iconic stadiums left. We cannot leave it. As for the attendaces we won't attract 40k so why move????

11 Dec 2018 22:08:07
Rutland red don’t agree if we allowed 4kaway fans like we used to we’d be nearly 33 k now (if we could fit them in )if we managed to get to the prem 40 k is not out of the question the area of greater Nottingham has a big enough population

11 Dec 2018 22:21:47
if we got promotion would we still be giving seats away for next to nothing though?

12 Dec 2018 08:36:03
It would all depend on ticket prices. Fix them again in the Prem and 40k could be achieved no problem.

12 Dec 2018 12:13:59
Ff with all the tv money in the prem the money through the gate has become largely irrelevant, so yes I believe seat prices could remain very competitive, slight problem of getting there 1st though!

11 Dec 2018 10:33:35
The big one on Monday! Anyone who thinks it's just another game think again!

We need to pack the midfield with " Dogs of war. Yacob Colback and Osborne must play to protect what will be a makeshift back four.

No room for passengers so Steele NOT Pantilimon as he is a liability at the moment.

And a front 3 of Carvaleho Lolley and Murphy to start with Cash Grabban and Dias to come on with energy in the last 30 minutes.

Agree3 Disagree6

11 Dec 2018 10:44:52
You can’t just replace all the attacking trio. The midfield 3 as you gave it will get knackered if they’re running around constantly. No way Osborn starts in midfield.
Pants (should be Steele but won’t happeb)
Osborn (Robinson if Fig is back from suspension then fig cb)

Ansarifrad and Geddy to come on for certain then maybe osbrob if he doesn’t start

11 Dec 2018 11:23:09
Got to be the worst thing you can do against the sheep,grabban on fire you don't drop a striker in form,we'd get mullered playing like that munmad.
Same side as Saturday for me unless we can get Dawson or fox fit.

11 Dec 2018 12:44:57
See Leeds are being linked with Darlow???
Thoughts fellow trickies???

11 Dec 2018 15:58:21
Have him in a heartbeat Rogie

11 Dec 2018 18:02:15
Sooner have Heaton on loan and buy him if we go up?

11 Dec 2018 18:47:09
Darlow for me.

11 Dec 2018 20:26:47
Hang on boys, all this talk will bring Pants down!

10 Dec 2018 21:50:19
Now he's king of the jungle, I hear Harry is about to bring a book out?
Hope he knows when to take it back to the library🤔🤔
If he's writing one, it's got to be, 'how to reverse off the drive safely'. 🤣🤣🤣

Agree0 Disagree4

10 Dec 2018 22:54:21
Looks like he's writing one,it's called "sudden impact"😂😂😂

10 Dec 2018 23:15:46
I thought he said book makers

11 Dec 2018 07:15:06
Or "The Complete Guide To Avoid Being Hit By A Football" ⚽⚽⚽😂😂😂

{Ed001's Note - Banking For Dogs?}

11 Dec 2018 07:27:26
Speaking of "hands". has anyone read the "News Sensation" regarding Mel "B"???
She's had "Emergency surgery" for two broken ribs,and a severed hand!!.
However the pictures show that "although severely injured,she'll try and resume her Book Tour in New York within the coming days.

10 Dec 2018 21:54:45
Wouldn't it have made more sense on Saturday to put Appiah on not Murphy? He would have been much more likely to run a Preston and get some centres in.

Agree5 Disagree2

10 Dec 2018 22:01:44
I would of played appiah but that's probably just me

10 Dec 2018 22:27:45
The boy is definitely worth a go, Dias did nothing again, appiah only had one chance to shine and came on had a couple of good runs and scored.

10 Dec 2018 20:47:52
Due to our central defence problem we ended up with a completely different shape and style.
Because AK still thinks Osborn can play left back, it meant two changes in defence instead of one.
Robinson is the best left back we have had in years so he should play there full stop.
So find someone out of what is a massive squad and get them to play there.

Agree5 Disagree0

10 Dec 2018 20:59:25
I wouldn't say we played with a different shape or style,thought it was a usual karanka style 4231.
Only difference was when Murphy came on and then there was a tendency to lump it without quality.
Lacked a leader that's for sure,Benny gives his all,but he's not captain material,

10 Dec 2018 21:04:47
Our manager has said the team did not play in the style they had been told, more so in the second half, saying we played too many long balls trying to chase the game. That tells me our central defence problem had nothing to do with it.
One of the editors not long ago said a ex player is too thick to take in instructions, maybe we now have a whole team of them, if you believe our manager. 🤔

10 Dec 2018 21:11:03
Perhaps I should have said 'different dynamic' instead of shape. Yes it was still 4231 but complete uncertainty down our left side. It's not Bens fault Cash had a bit of a bad day and that Dias offers nothing at all but I feel it would have been much better with our very good left back playing where he should be.

10 Dec 2018 21:26:20
Many a striker has developed into a centre back, so how,s about using Murphy . It sounds and is rediculous but food for thought . Have seen it over the decades and can be successful .

10 Dec 2018 21:35:05
I know mate but Heff is dodgy and slow and I can't think of any other player we have that could play centre back.
Only other thing he can do is play three at the back and have darikwa and Osborn as wing backs?
Think yacoub could play in a back three?

11 Dec 2018 07:32:15
I think Colback can play LB if needed.

11 Dec 2018 08:18:34
The problem is we have a manager who doesn’t learn from his mistakes an even if we had to play an U21 player at left back then so be it, osborn cannot play left back, Dias must have a clause in his contract to say he plays a part in every game

10 Dec 2018 19:32:41
How many sleeps to Ramta ?

Agree0 Disagree1
