Badly needed win for all concerned last night, well done. The back four now looks as good as we have had for a long time. Thrilled for Carvalho and Grabban, got the monkey off their backs with the goals, now watch them go. But must say Jack Colback was my MOM. Flash he is not, but his contribution in front of a solid back four was top drawer. I would like to see him paired with the very unlucky Liam Bridcutt at some stage as I think that pair of pocket rockets would really ruffle some opposing feathers. Must now beat Rotherham to make last night count. U REDS.

We have Yacob now Retford. I think we'll be looking to offload Bridcutt in Jan.

21 Sep 2018 12:21:02
I can not remember seeing Yacob play, is he better than Bridcutt?

21 Sep 2018 13:31:07
Yacob and Hatch are tall midfielders with Yacob a solid DM, Hatch a bit more on the creative side. They will do a job for us when injuries pile up and things get tough, but I can still see a role for Bridcutt, depends if AK feels the same about him.

Interesting that rangers would struggle in league one as someone put it?
Didn't do too bad tonight in Spain against one of the top sides in la ligue.
Well done Worrall getting your first start.

Hi ff, I said that mate and stand by it good result tonight for them though , but Villarreal have had a shocker of a start to the season.

20 Sep 2018 21:31:21
Come on Stevie they are better than league one?
Playing a la legue side even if they havnt started well and getting a draw away shows a bit more quality than that?
Do big Joe a great learning curve

20 Sep 2018 22:07:30
Agree with a lot of stuff you say mate disagree on this one, bottom end championship at a push, seem to remember Celtic beating Barca these things happen and as I say villrreal had a shocker of a start this season

20 Sep 2018 22:37:58
I would put them Championship mid table at best.

20 Sep 2018 23:21:40
League 2 at best.

21 Sep 2018 00:31:16
He's still one of ours who he plays for well done lad

20 Sep 2018 19:13:56
Not been a lot of comment about the Hef after last night. Shame about the deflection. He had the defence organised and the kiss he blew to the Wednesday fans after giving him stick even seemed to get their respect!

Agree4 Disagree0

Said after the Newcastle game he’d could be a real city ground star ,a proper personality but best of all looks like he can play,at the money he cost appears to be a real bargain

21 Sep 2018 07:08:13
He's quality. Great personality and leader but best of all, a really good CB.

20 Sep 2018 18:45:47
Our potential striker signing is dragging a bit. As he is a full international, is it his nationality that is causing the possible work permit delay? Normally a club announces that terms have been agreed, waiting for a work permit but nothing? Probably the the one area of the squad we could do with reinforcements. 😁.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Sep 2018 20:27:25
You have to ask the question?
Did he want to be released by olympiacos? Or is he being pushed into a move he doesn't want?
The Greek lad took it,but where can you see him fitting in??

20 Sep 2018 21:04:50
Iran are ranked 33 in the world and he is a regular with 65 appearances so that should make a work permit a formality.The stumbling block could be a settlement fee on his contract from the Greek

20 Sep 2018 21:41:00
McKay was supposed to go there,but turned it down,it's something that not sure should be happening,it hasn't worked out and probably should be left alone in future.
The reason I say this is,if we had a couple of good players and then suddenly they were moved on to olympiacos,then I doubt the fans will be happy and vice versa.
It's just a bad idea trying to conduct that sort of business and will eventually cause close scrutiny of the owners dealings and no good will come of it

20 Sep 2018 18:22:28
AK is so in awe of Janko's displays he wants to keep him past his loan spell, as that is the case i hope Janko wants to join us.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Sep 2018 08:27:29
I reckon he'll join if we have a top six finish, otherwise he might be looking for Prem League status.

{Eds Note - Ed001 has posted a new article entitled, Sporting Villains Part 1: Spains Paralympic Basketball Team 2000

Possibly, probably even, the biggest sporting scandal of all time begins our new Sporting Villains series.

Greed, nearly always to blame.πŸ‘Ž

{Ed001's Note - very true.}

Worrall in the Rangers team to play Villareal tonight. Should be interesting to see how he does.

Oops, unlucky 'assist' for Bacca in under a minute.πŸ˜–

20 Sep 2018 18:07:41
Didn't start too well

20 Sep 2018 17:03:52
Being a half glass full kind of person, I view our squad size positively. It's not 'too big' but it does have options for every position. Will it be a problem keeping them all happy? That's AK's job to worry about. Will it stretch the club's finances and give us FFP issues in time? That's the owners concern and given how they're running things so far, I think it is under control. Personally I think, when injuries and suspensions start to bite, we'll be grateful for those options. FTID.

Agree3 Disagree1

20 Sep 2018 17:32:55
Everyone has their own opinions on the squad size and the financial implications of the size, and off course to voice those opinions but as long as there is progress on the pitch i'm happy to trust the club. Thankfully there is now progress being made.

20 Sep 2018 18:09:57
Most people from inside football seem to think that the squad is too large ,yes you need cover but do you need squad members who are probably never going top play , common sense says a smaller squad would create a better spirit ,it,s just human nature .

20 Sep 2018 18:41:33
Any kind of run in the cups and you're talking over 50 games Carlo. The modern footballer can't hack it. Bookings harder to avoid, players won't play with knocks so the deeper the squad the better. It all changed when they banned the magic sponge.πŸ‘

20 Sep 2018 18:55:23
True mate, totally spoilt different type of player now. πŸš‘πŸš‘πŸš‘πŸ‘¨β€βš•οΈπŸ‘¨β€βš•οΈπŸ‘¨β€βš•οΈπŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­

Daft thing is karanka wanted dawson so much,then we pay two and a half million for figs,turn down 10million for Worrall and then he gets a gem in Heff for Β£300k.
We could be a lot better off??

20 Sep 2018 16:44:33
Great display last night. All the players appeared to be on the same wavelength understanding what was required of them and also put a full shift in.
I am hopeful that this trend can continue and we now start a winning run at least at home
I can see (but do not agree) on some of the recent comments on this site regarding formation being wrong, chopping and changing players and ineffective management.
I do not agree in anyway that we have brought in two many players. My believe is that the manager has top loaded due to the age of some of the players. He sees the experience in them but believe he undestands that they ain't going to be fit enough to play every game hence why he has gone this way so expect changes as this will work when other teams start to struggle with injuries etc. I may be talking rubbish here but time will tell.
Tell me it's rubbish but today is a good day as thought the cancer was back but in my prostate this time but have just been told the high PSA us due to the prostate being over large so good to go.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Sep 2018 17:26:56
All the best mickn. My mate is suffering with prostrate cancer. Anyway great resukt lastnight. So pleased that Grabban and Carvalaho ar off the mark. Sounded a good game too. I was ln my bivvy fishing in north yorkshire watching the score update on the forest site. As for squad sizes we have 3 strikers injured already or is it 2 and one midfielder? That won't help but hopefully lastnight will get us on a run. The most important thing was the cohesion and effort and plenty to cheer. See you all at BlackburnπŸ˜ƒ

20 Sep 2018 15:21:59
What struck me last night was even when Sheffield wed got their lucky goal late, they didn't up their game or seem to believe they could get a point, and unbelievably when carvallhio was subbed and dawdling off as you do in injury time bannan shook hands with him, taking up even more time when normally opponents are pushing you off the pitch, all seemed very strange.

Agree2 Disagree1

20 Sep 2018 16:18:28
Pretty sure they scored & then forced a corner didn't they?

Decent from Bannan, i'm guessing he felt he had to acknowledge Carvalho for being the best player on the park.

Theres nowt strange about dragging the life out of a team to the point they don't believe they can win.

20 Sep 2018 16:32:17
Cjay pushing a point now mate carvallhio probably had his best game for us but not the best player on the park,

20 Sep 2018 16:57:21
Good performances all round, the spine of the team looked strong with Hef / Fox and Geddy / Collback ( man of the match for me ) and the energy of Osbourne and Cash allowing Carvalho the freedom , Janko was excellent , my only reservation would be the introduction of Watson who looked miles off the pace and we didn't look the same team when he came on , time for AK to give Bridcutt that role IMO or maybe Jacob will give us that cover but Watson really isn't good enough

20 Sep 2018 19:27:00
Cjay 1 corner hardly constitutes a late onslaught does it that was my point mate
