Under 23's and under 18's lost over the weekend.

Agree1 Disagree1

13 Aug 2018 16:58:27
And ?

13 Aug 2018 18:05:22
They lost 😂😂😂

13 Aug 2018 20:27:44
Good job the first team won then

13 Aug 2018 12:40:54
Possible team for Bury. Not a bad second 11.

Bryam Worrall Hefele Robinson
Bridcutt Yates
Cash Soudani Gonclaves

Subs: Smith, Dawson, Murphy, Grabban, Osborn, Watson, Dias.

These players need to show that they deserve a 1st team place.

Agree2 Disagree0

13 Aug 2018 14:48:29
Yep good plan mate, although I do think that cash proved his worth on Saturday.

13 Aug 2018 16:02:36
Think that eleven would have beat what was a poor Reading side on Saturday ,have we an embarrassment of luxuries?

13 Aug 2018 16:14:11
I'd probably put Dawson in for Worrall to keep him sharp but I think that's not far off what he'll pick.

13 Aug 2018 17:01:16
I doubt whether Byram of Hefele will be anywhere near fit.

13 Aug 2018 06:34:37
{Ed's Note - Ed001 has posted a new article entitled, Review Of The Day 13th August 2018

12 Aug 2018 18:44:35
Tarore said the last six months were tough for him, he had no problems with Forest but with Aitor as he had some prejudice against me. What prejudice could be?

Agree0 Disagree6

12 Aug 2018 19:17:07
He wasn't Portuguese 😁

12 Aug 2018 19:25:27
He probably doesn't like wasters who don't put the hard work in training and think they can just pick a nice wage up each week.

12 Aug 2018 19:46:53
Prejudice?? 🤣 he just doesn’t put up with players who don’t perform consistently

12 Aug 2018 20:23:20
How's it going 2tone I'm not sure about that one mate we paid 6 million for grabban ain't seen nothing from him yet we should of tried for foriestera

12 Aug 2018 20:27:59
the only forest he s bothered about are the ones bears live in. so as far as i'm concerned he can go live with em and see how much sympathy they give him.

12 Aug 2018 21:51:59
AK takes no prisoners when it comes to building a team ethic irrespective of talent. Traore never strikes you as a team player. AK had the same problem at Boro with senior players who thought they knew better but he sorted it.
Little wonder he has recruited his own squad.
Interesting that the ones still here were never really rated by other managers but are now showing their worth to the team and club?

12 Aug 2018 22:17:09
If traore has an accusation to make he should make it and not hide behind innuendo.

12 Aug 2018 22:42:12
Oh I've seen one or two players he's bought in like that red 😁

12 Aug 2018 23:10:25
If he don't put up with players who don't play consistently, has he just wasted 13 million on one?
Let's hope not

12 Aug 2018 23:40:32
There you go, just a week in and the perennial 99/skeg moanies are at it, give the players a chance, if it's attention your seeking, go to the Salvation Army boys, it's all so boring.

Well done Forest on some hard earned points against some difficult teams, we have a really solid squad.

13 Aug 2018 01:35:33
Don't bite, statetheovious, they are needy.😁👍

13 Aug 2018 07:03:11
Scouse I agree the chuckle brothers are kneady.

13 Aug 2018 09:07:26
Lol 😁needy just because I have a opinion whatever I know let's just have another season of happy clapping remember that one under Df I've said well done to ak and the team when they've played well first 2 games especially against West Brom but very poor against reading any body that says different is wearing rose tinted spectacles it's that simple 😁

13 Aug 2018 09:45:02
Yep, needy:)

13 Aug 2018 09:51:07
StevieF "I thought Innuendo was an Italian suppository, until I discovered Smirnoff!"

13 Aug 2018 10:20:46
State lol 😁 what's up mate don't you like people having a opinion if you don't your on the wrong page mate get back to playing your football manager on your ps2 😁

13 Aug 2018 12:11:25
Ignore them boys they have to stick together otherwise they would have no-one to talk to in their little banter club 👬

13 Aug 2018 12:54:28
Very poor against Reading, 😂 Wrong again Skeg.

13 Aug 2018 13:23:43
Perks 😪😪😪😁

13 Aug 2018 13:33:47
Long may the unbeaten run continue. Hope we get to 13 like Dougie did.

13 Aug 2018 14:34:01
Me to perks just remind me what happened with Df not long after the run of bore draws lmfao 😂🤣

13 Aug 2018 14:53:14
Skeg , compared to WBA we were out of sorts against reading - tiredness, well drilled reading team , probably a bit of both. Credit to the manager though mate he made changes that altered the cause of the game.

It does tickle me though ! A week ago the word on here was that Derby were in for a long season because the struggled to edge past a very poor reading side !

Keep yer posts coming mate - in enjoy reading the majority of stuff on here TBH.

13 Aug 2018 15:08:02
To all the REAL Forest Fans.
To the foremoaners get an allotment and talk to the plants🤣🤣🤣🤣.

13 Aug 2018 15:14:04
2star it gets boring mate if you don't agree with the karanka crew they start putting stupid comments about you on here it goes straight over my head but they act like kids the first 2 games I enjoyed and commented on how well the team played and said ak had done well but still some way to go for me reading I said it as I felt they were crap up in till the last 20 mins subs made the difference but we should of been cruising past teams like reading if we're going anywhere this season it's that simple for me anyway onwards and upwards hopefully I good win tomorrow and a good cup run 😁

13 Aug 2018 15:25:07
Too be fair 2 star Reading should have been out of sight first half against Derby.Think Rams have goals in them but defensively not to clever.
Forest were not at the races Saturday but very poor is wide of the mark.Suppose if you are trying to get a reaction you might describe it like that.
Mad Fawaz has gone now Skeg. Only the minority will try to put a dampener on the good feeling within the club.

13 Aug 2018 15:43:35
I didn’t see the sheep game but now mention it yeah I did read that they were lucky to get the victory.

13 Aug 2018 16:21:53
Skeg you have it in for the manager and any player he has signed.Just my opinion

13 Aug 2018 16:30:36
Is that right perks your obviously only picking the comments from me you want to then all my comments are in black and white and on my profile read them get back to me and tell me I didn't say over them first 2 games we played well also said soudani very good signing a few times like I said read them if not do one I don't really care I will comment on what I want when I want it's my opinion 😁

13 Aug 2018 20:53:15
Hope you do. It always brightens my day.

12 Aug 2018 15:14:31
AK stated that we have 43 championship level players on the staff ,that must be £ 500.000 at least per week just on players ,this must be unsustainable even with full houses .
Something as got to give.

Agree2 Disagree1

12 Aug 2018 15:39:05
How badly do the players want to play? If players will not leave then that only leaves the club to pay them off therefore it is a win, win for the players, and a lose, lose situation for the club.

12 Aug 2018 15:51:32
Burncross is that you?

12 Aug 2018 16:07:10
Nothing to do with me.

12 Aug 2018 12:08:41
Aitor has said did not, and does not want to sell Brereton but he could be open to loaning him out.

Agree0 Disagree1

12 Aug 2018 14:00:25
I'd sooner let Murphy go out on loan than brereton.
Brereton more mobile and add another quality loan forward. Murphy yeh he scored other week but let's face it
Legs have gone.

12 Aug 2018 14:22:06
At least he can still do what strikers are meant to do - find the back of the net.

12 Aug 2018 16:05:26
I’m very open to him being loaned out - it will do him the world of good. We should have a recall option on him too just in case Murphy’s legs don’t come back.

12 Aug 2018 16:17:31
Good job Fawaz isn't still at the club. He would've accepted £5m from Blackburn.

12 Aug 2018 16:32:17
Why would he?

12 Aug 2018 18:10:51
I’d send him and Yates to Rotherham. They would both be big fish in a small pond, but would be playing at a championship level and have to work to carry them which would force them to sink or swim.

12 Aug 2018 19:18:05
That’s a very good idea

12 Aug 2018 10:33:45
Really enjoyed the last ten mins of the game. Once we had benny and Matty in there favoured positions we matched our technical ability with the key attributes to win against well drilled teams : courage, energy, Heart and passion. Reading had no answer for it, we badly needed to up tempo and get in amongst them yesterday.
Team for next home game should pick itself now
Darikwa, Fox, Figueiredo, Robinson
cash Colback guedioura, Osborn
Soudani Grabban or Murphy.

Not sure what the team away will be as I’m sure it will be something different away from home.

Agree5 Disagree7

12 Aug 2018 11:39:46
I wasn't able to get the game and I follow didn't work at all for me did the formation change with subs as we had 2 strikers on

12 Aug 2018 11:44:37
No way Dias and Carvalho will be left out.

12 Aug 2018 12:01:47
It picks itself yet you can’t pick the strikers?lol.

12 Aug 2018 13:05:19
3 games in a week was probably too much too soon for the Portuguese lads settling into championship life.Good quality squad will be such an advantage this season.Nice to see Soudani was more than capable of slotting into same role as Carvalho

12 Aug 2018 13:14:13
Unless you saw a different game perks they didn’t appear to show the same ability to influence the game as cash did yesterday. We should play the players who can influence the game?

12 Aug 2018 13:46:14
Exactly what I've been trying to say but like banging your head against a brick wall having a opinion lol 😁

12 Aug 2018 13:47:20
Cash is trong willing and very direct. Something the portuguese lads do not have at moment. Michael helfe looks quality so he will slot in nicely. So pleased for fox as he has had so much stick in the past. Benny must operate one left flank not as fullback. Great result.

12 Aug 2018 13:59:04
Reading were well organized yesterday and fresh after 8 days rest plus their big Irish lad Mehler number 8 as defensive midfield anchor man had a superb game and completely nullified our playmakers particularly Carvalho who looked knackered. Reading deserved a draw until the goal and the fresh legs Sondani and Cash came on.

12 Aug 2018 14:24:10
A very good assessment stokey - we shouldn’t be afraid to leave them out if they are tired or out of sorts. They were the wrong athlete for the course yesterday

12 Aug 2018 14:29:20
Skeg, at the minute they offer no more than clough and Mckay could offer at this stage of the season. Be interesting to see how they cope in the winter months which is when McKay disappeared. Early days yet bought mate and there is defo good players in there. I still think we’ve made a mistake selling McKay - on his day he had as much to offer as anyone we’ve signed at a fraction of the cost. Great day yesterday though, treated the kids to a new shirt after the game and myself to a retro European cup shirt - the replica of the one worn in Madrid. Great buzz around the ground skeg - even after the game the shop was rammed until 6pm.

12 Aug 2018 14:59:42
Nice one 2 star I've been looking for a retro shirt myself

12 Aug 2018 15:05:01
2star i agree about McKay could played a part and helped the squad as he is still learning, but has the basis to work on with the right coaching, both mentally and footballing wise he would improve immensely. I do however feel the Portuguese players at this moment in time have more technical skill and creativity than either Clough or McKay.

12 Aug 2018 16:03:09
What a nice position to be in - debating whether the new lads should start given the performances of Osborn (once he moved to left mid) and cash right mid. I’d have taken that a few months ago wouldn’t you?

12 Aug 2018 16:14:08
Yes i would, without a doubt.

12 Aug 2018 16:40:48
Sorry but McKay went missing for mw and ak and in Scotland as we were warned how many chances does he need at 23 I would like to think he doesn't need to learn to much just practice what he has been learning for the last 10 odd years

12 Aug 2018 17:15:27
Yes 2 star your right. Different game to you.I went to the game Stokey went to.

12 Aug 2018 17:20:23
Red James very few players ever have no need to keep learning, when you have the talent McKay has you need to get his mind straight then he will be just the player we need.

12 Aug 2018 17:25:45
Stokey appears to say the Portuguese players did sweet FA yesterday as they were nullified by the opposition perks? Anyway football should divide opinion shouldn’t it?

12 Aug 2018 18:37:25
No 2star if your perks Sutton or redinexille you after agree with them the fact is Mr ak as had all summer to work is best players out and I don't think he's playing is best players in fact I don't think he knows who they are let's hope he gets things sorted else it could be a long very disappointing season again

12 Aug 2018 19:24:08
Skeg , I agree with you after yesterday’s game. I think he got it right against WBA and we should have been out of sight before they scored. It’ll be good to see how well Robinson and Osborn do together. One thing I will say for AK is I don’t think he’ll favour Dias etc, I think he will play whoever puts in the best performances. I wouldn’t mind seeing darikwa given a bash in right mid in front of Byram too?

12 Aug 2018 19:31:22
So because they were a bit leggy from a 3 game week in a new league, new country etc against a team trying to stop them playing we should drop them for Cash and Osborn. Sorry not for me. By the way Skeg unbeaten duck.

12 Aug 2018 20:10:33
Perks13 i thought the idea of having a squad was for players to be given a chance to shine when players are injured, suspended, out of form, or knackered.

12 Aug 2018 22:04:02
McKay is not good enough to play 46 Championship games. For all his talent he is easy to take out the game, cannot tackle and does not track back.

The Portuguese lads are better coached and in the tradition of the national team work harder off the ball than most young British talent.

Already teams are setting up to stop them playing but because they are good players out of possession we look more secure at the back and will only get better with the new players and as these lads settle in.

A £1m profit is good business for a bit part player. Let's move on?

12 Aug 2018 21:52:11
No all perks Sutton and redinexille are interested in is being proven right by having ak as a manager me personally would of expected a better manager to have got is best 11 sorted by now that as happened also your right stages he's got a whole squad to choose from which no other manager as had for a long time I just don't think he knows how to use them to me he's trying to win this league buying players wether he's bought the best players and spent the money wisely I've not seen yet the players that have scored and won us the points have cost us next to nothing soudani should be playing every game if karanka wants players who play for the shirt he's the 1 100 percent every game and perks we should be on 9 points with the money karanka as had warbo would be given the chance 😁😂

12 Aug 2018 22:14:06
I agree it is stag? So I'm saying they were knackered.They now have a week without a league game.No problem.Its up to Karanka and his staff to assess fitness levels/fatigue and make changes where necessary. He did,subs made the impact required to get the win.Would Cash now replace Dias in the starting lineup, no.Would Soudani replace Carvalho or Grabban in a 4231,no not for me.Maybe paired with Grabban if 2 up top.In any case I expect Murphy will be the lone striker away to Wigan.

12 Aug 2018 22:44:47
We will see red but not seen anything like what karanka is trying to copy at wolves yet maybe it's not the players 😁

12 Aug 2018 23:45:05
Skeg correct me if I'm wrong but the same team has been selected for the last 2 games which may suggest he thinks this is his best 11.

13 Aug 2018 05:39:04
Perks13 you are probably right about Murphy but when Soudani and Cash came on they made a impact as you say, they won the game for us so deserve to play against Wigan with the team in the positions they were when they made their impact. What a impact those knackered players could have off the bench, if needed.

13 Aug 2018 07:10:06
Skeg 2 star.
Stop talking out of your blow holes.
We won. WE WON.
Stop griping and pretending to be managers.
Warbo has gone he's a charlatan. I understand it's difficult to be fan boys. Please get help to over him. It's embarrassing.

13 Aug 2018 12:06:36
Fbb karankas love child forget warbo karanka is the man in charge and been given a whole lot of money to spend more than any other manager in forests history all I'm saying his he's not living up to expectations yet what's wrong with that it's my opinion and sticking by it till he proves me wrong simples 😁

13 Aug 2018 12:51:04
Fair enough stag,get what your saying but not yet for me.

12 Aug 2018 08:47:28
Team to face bury
Byram hefele worrell Robinson
Cash Watson bridgcutt calves
Soudani brereton
Gives everyone a rest and gives these players a chance to impress.

Agree5 Disagree0

12 Aug 2018 09:51:49
I would like us to put a half decent side out and hope we have 2 good cup runs and maybe mix it up with the big boys later to see how we do against them a win always gives you a boost no matter what game it is

12 Aug 2018 09:57:27
Good team that Red always,like it.Get minutes into the lads that need it and hopefully a few goals

12 Aug 2018 10:19:44
Exactly the team I would pick with the exception of Dawson for Worrall. I would make sure Worrall and Murphy got a decent run out though.
We will need every one of these players over the coming weeks and months.

12 Aug 2018 10:29:10
Skegsey at the moment the team above is our b side
I'd of taken that end of last season. That a strong b team
Most of them wouldn't look out of place in A team

12 Aug 2018 10:26:52
Agreed other than I think Daws will pair up with Worrall and The Hef will get a run out once we have secured the game.

12 Aug 2018 16:20:25
I'd like to see Ryan Yates given a run out.

12 Aug 2018 22:05:51
Good call. Reflecting on AKs comments he will probably start with Yates as he needs to decide whether to send him out on loan or give him a go?

12 Aug 2018 01:31:06
We won against a team where there were around three good performances on our side . Now when there's twice as much or more we'll stun many great sides even Leeds maybe .

Agree3 Disagree0

12 Aug 2018 08:57:44
The way teams will set up against us at the CG this season, you can expect to see many more games like yesterdays. Every team is going to come very well drilled in their defensive shape to try and erradicate our technical threat. We're going to have to learn quick how to be patient and grind out the result.

12 Aug 2018 10:01:31
Very true Gazza. Signing quality players doesn't entitle you to batter teams every week.Cant see many coming to the city ground and having a go at us.I predict some of our bigger wins will be away from home.

12 Aug 2018 10:37:23
Leeds a 'great' side?

12 Aug 2018 11:53:10
Didn't say Leeds were a great side but they're the team to beat at the minute don't you think ?

12 Aug 2018 12:26:39
Leeds started well last year and the year before and as for beating derby nothing to shout about they should have been 3 down at reading cart horses at the back, not the last time they ‘ll concede 4 this season if they continue with Leigh etc

12 Aug 2018 22:10:44
Leeds are a fair weather team and will suffer burn out.
I fancy us to to win at Leeds playing counter attacking football. For all their high energy game they still have some bang average defenders and midfielders?

11 Aug 2018 23:38:38
Did not go today but listened to the radio commentary.

Colback, Fox and Figs provided the platform for us to play. It seems the new pitch slowed some of the passing and some of our players could not keep up the intensity of Tuesday.

Clement did his homework and harried us in midfield. We had a plan B which is why we have a big squad. The subs made an instant impact and we won the game.

That's the sign of a very good team and manager!

Soudani is our ace in the pack because he has an eye for goal and can play anywhere across the front line which means teams will find it hard to plan against him.

1-0 to AK for playing him in the hole after out wide on Tuesday.

Interesting reviewing the forum comments on a match we won with some writing certain players off already.

The negative comments about Grabban are laughable. John O'Hare won some medals not scoring 20 goals a season but by playing others in for the benefit of the team!

Championship football is won over 46 matches. Forest are unbeaten in 3 which is better than most were predicting.

Better still we are still introducing players into the team who are only going improve us.

I suggest those requiring the instant gratification demanded by the inanity of social media after every game go play with their stations in their bedroom!

Onwards and Upwards Forest are on the March with Aitor's Army


Agree6 Disagree5

12 Aug 2018 00:37:47
Your post is good in places, and laughable in others, the pitch did not slow the passing down. I believe the lads had a mixure of feeling the exertion of their previous efforts, but also went into the game over confident and therefore were not rushing to get forward.

There were glimpses of their intent but not often enough. When Cash, and Soudani came on they upped the tempo of the game. Once Soudani scored the team came to life, through out the game they did the dirty side of the game well but up to scoring found it hard to find the impetus get forward often.

There nothing wrong saying someone had a bad game, how is that writing them off. Grabban strolled around the pitch for the most part of the game. I would say the lads used the long ball a bit too often but they dug out a win so sbould be applauded fo that.

12 Aug 2018 01:05:52
S2T you really were at a different game to me regarding Grabban. I actually agree with FF79 in that in the 4231 means the man up top is on a hiding to nothing if he doesn't get quality service.Worked hard,strong and has good pace.Put in a shift for the team.

12 Aug 2018 09:00:01
We'd have been better off with Brereton up front or no one up front rather than grabban money wasted on him by what I've seen so far bring back Cummings 😁

12 Aug 2018 09:03:16
For sure, the system needs work if AK is going to stick with Grabban on his own up top. He does the lone striker role pretty well, but he's no Assombolonga. I'd like to see Soudani starting in a more advanced role, Grabban clearly needs more support, and soudani looks like he has the energy, strength and eye for goal to provide it.

12 Aug 2018 09:37:44
Soudani is a player that loves playing he's happiest on the pitch and would play him every game he's only going to get better

12 Aug 2018 10:05:22
Look forward to having the Grabban conversation in a few months skeg when you can tell me I was right ☝🏻

12 Aug 2018 10:24:54
Perks13 how does one game define a players season? If he had scored a hat trick yesterday that would not have meant he would score 30 goals this season, and a bad game does not mean he is going to have a rubbish season either.

12 Aug 2018 10:46:22
Redinexile, john o'hare was an entirely player to grabban he played with his back to goal held the ball up and played others in , in an essentially counter attacking team, grab an looks like a poacher to me not entirely suited to the role he’s been given

12 Aug 2018 11:56:03
Never said it did stags.

12 Aug 2018 12:37:20
We defo need someone up there with grabbon. Or someone closer to him.
Teams are going to camp out at city ground like reading tried yesterday. So I'd go 352. Against teams we expect will do this.

12 Aug 2018 22:12:08
Better playing 3-4-3 at home when they park the bus!
