Great to see Grabban scoring consistently just hope we don,t start to hear stuff about him not doing enough in games ,as long as he scores that will do for me ,keep it up Lewis .

Me too Carlo, one chance - buried - can’t ask for more than that can ya.

04 Nov 2018 16:43:05
Just saw Kasper Schmeichel's post match interview. you are an absolute Credit to your club,and profession.

04 Nov 2018 22:03:09
Well said rogie not only a credit to the club but to any youngster that is following football a proper role model 👏👏👏👏

04 Nov 2018 22:26:05
Hope the above thumbs downs especially regarding schmeichel at Leicester were a slip of the finger, If not even as a joke it's not funny and you're not welcome on here anymore and if so shame on you

04 Nov 2018 22:33:19
Got to agree cloughie

05 Nov 2018 11:43:48
Sadly some there are some really sick "people" about!!

05 Nov 2018 12:26:54
Surley if you disagree with a post you should have the guts to say why not just put another thumbs down but that's the world we live in with social media.

04 Nov 2018 14:53:54
Can someone remind the likes of Goodman, hinchcliffe, higginbottom that there are other teams in this league that deserve a fair crack of the whip when it comes to talking about the game and the teams that are playing at the time not just pick the team they like the most and praise them to the hilt even if they don't play how they think they should, I think someone writes the drivel some of them spout through the out the game no matter how they play the privilege few, I am happy we won and that's what matters, playing great football is better to watch but I will take the points anyday and wait for the rest to follow.

Agree1 Disagree4

04 Nov 2018 22:56:36
Personally I'd prefer they do not mention us and that Prat Prutton keeps backing the opposition so we stay under the radar until May.

We have enough disbelievers on this forum without over hyping expectation


05 Nov 2018 10:02:09
I hope pruts keeps on saying we'll loose because most of the time we win those games and makes him look like a tit

04 Nov 2018 13:11:06
Please AK start with this team on Saturday against Stoke.

Colback available but keep the 11 who played well against United, they looked a tight unit and Yacob was impressive.

Agree8 Disagree0

04 Nov 2018 11:24:59
Had to miss the Sheffield game but how good is it that we are winning close matches and looking solid at the back. Too many seem to have forgotten that Clough and Taylor built Forest on being very hard to beat with a counter attacking style. Whilst we don't have a Robertson or a Shilton, as yet, a lot of the other pieces are slowly falling into place.

Agree8 Disagree4

04 Nov 2018 23:05:10
Well said Tyke.

After all the years of under achieving some on here have rose tinted specs on how Forest teams of old played to be successful and moan about not being entertained?

They forget that when you start winning regularly and not conceding goals that builds confidence to play better. However, you are always going to come up against teams where you have to grind out results. This season is going to be harder than most as the league is arguably the most competitive ever?

Slowly but surely our goals against column is becoming one of the best and our goals for is creeping in the right direction.

Onward & Upward!

05 Nov 2018 09:00:02
Yep rose tinted glasses 2 Euro cups league title 4 league cups euro super cup etc etc lol all built on counter attack PACEY counter attack 1holding midfielder,that’s right no shilton or robbo also no woodcock, gemmill,o’neill,withe ,etc don’t compare Ak s tactics to clough’s who’s teams were a lot of other fans ‘2nd team because of the attractive way they played the game

05 Nov 2018 11:08:42
Redinexile Have a look at how cloughs team counter attacked at old Trafford when they beat them 4, Leeds away 1st leg league cup semifinal beat them 4 ,contrast that to how Ak sets up , and to say cloughs team didn’t entertain is an insult

05 Nov 2018 10:56:14
Stevie, You do not play attractive football from a standing start which is where we are as a club. Stop the goals build from the back and then upgrade the quality to play a more expansive game.
Not comparing AK directly with OBE but we are on the right track at last!

05 Nov 2018 11:24:30
Redinexile ok mate point taken I am actually happy with the steady progress just hope this season can at last be the 1!

05 Nov 2018 11:54:58
I believe the problem forest have at the minute is getting the ball up through midfield to the forwards quick enough,the play is not that bad but passing at times is far to slow and to many punts over the tops.talking of punts or more to the point kicks from our keeper Mr Pants i counted 16 kicks off the floor or from his hands on Saturday not one found a red shirt. Either we are not trying to win the ball hard enough,or.his kicking really is PANTS

04 Nov 2018 11:22:41
Really like the look of Yacob, gets in the oppositions face even off the ball. If AK intends to carry on with two defensive midfielders as much as I don't like it in home games particularly Colback and Yacob has to be the pairing who would really add some steel in there. A real plus for Forest defending but short on creativity going forward. Also thought Dawson and Figuredo looked a good pairing and we have got our 20 goals plus a season striker in Lewis Grabbon if we can keep him fit. After the no show at mighty Burton it just shows you can't leave your best players out and expect to stroll home so well done yesterday. Must follow up by dumping Stoke now. U REDS.

Agree8 Disagree0

04 Nov 2018 14:11:46
Krankie only played one defensive midfielder yesterday. I've got no problem playing 2 away but at home it should be like yesterday with one holding and the other pushing a bit further up the pitch.

04 Nov 2018 10:20:50
A lot being said about the atmosphere in the ground , to be fair it’s not the best.
Remember the days when we had a song for every player ? There is a distinct lack of creativity from our terraces.

Some of it is embarrassing, singing you’ll never work again to every set of fans who live north of the East Midlands is frankly embarrassing, out dated and shows a serious lack of knowledge of current affairs.

Agree7 Disagree6

04 Nov 2018 10:38:16
2star yes mate because they never shout scabs at us do they

04 Nov 2018 17:44:25
That particular part of Nottingham history is fascinating, sadly most are ignorant to the political backdrop. Let's not raise to the bait, 2 wrongs don't make a right.

04 Nov 2018 20:36:38
Scouse I am fully aware of the political backdrop but don’t intend to argue the toss on a football site

04 Nov 2018 20:49:57
Always think it's sad that it's the same old chant,makes you feel ashamed to be associated with them,sad thing is they are mainly old and still chanting the rubbish that sir Brian asked them not to.

No different from going to Spain and sitting in a bar and having to listen to every expletive known to man and walking out in disgust,when you just would like to educate them.

Be nice to see our owners put a slogan on the pitch saying no swearing "gentlemen" please.
After all we are bringing a new generation to the city ground and I for one would prefer my grandchildren not to ask what they are singing or even worst start singing it

04 Nov 2018 23:15:02
2star Spot on I've been banging on about this for ages.

It's very evident when you go away and sit in the home end just how much more noise and support other fans give their team when things are no going their way.

The Forest away support is great but you can feel the tension and grumbling at home the minute the tempo drops. AK got slaughtered on here for raising the issue but in my book the home fans need to show the same endeavour and support the lads show on the pitch even when they struggle if we are ever going to be successful instead of sitting back a moaning we are not playing champagne football which only comes having played winning football and a trophy or 2?

04 Nov 2018 23:38:51
Even more worrying have seen a few incidents between ‘fans’ before a few games this season more than in recent years , saw it yesterday, before wba game and 1or2 other games this season p

04 Nov 2018 09:45:53
Why after a good win yesterday, all be it a scrappy battle, do people enjoy gloating and digging at the folk with scepticism about AK. Football is all about opinions. This forum is not meant to be a harmonious love in, its a platform for people to express views right or wrong.

Its good that the AK lovers are getting reward for their consistent backing of the man, though not many were singing his praises all the time lol. Yes their is a steely determination about AK and yesterday was a crucial outcome for the man and team. Yacob could now be the new partner for colback and thd new striker will give us a variety missing at the club for a long time.

But AK has not been right all the time, he has gaffed big time and has wasted a lot of money and time. However he may be turning things around slowly with a bit of luck and no lack of hard work and tough decisions. But he has been beligerent and dour so his demeanour does not appeal to everyone nor his style of play, so opinions will differ and that's life.

Gloating is not pretty, its a knife edge with AK so its brilliant that he wrings out the results like yesterday. But be mindful that the football is not the prettiest and the set up still quite negative. We all want success but also want a positive style. Its all about opinions but above all we are dyed in the wool FOREST TO THE CORE.

Agree7 Disagree4

04 Nov 2018 10:07:12
Rutland , good post , I think you answer your own question mate.

03 Nov 2018 22:46:11
Maybe the Burton result was the bitter pill that needed to be swallowed; for the result today & the team selection looking forward?

Agree5 Disagree0

04 Nov 2018 05:45:24
The team has had several bitter pills this season already. They should know by now what is expected of them.

04 Nov 2018 10:04:31
I watched the game on SS and have to say that the performance really was attrocious. It's one of those games where you're constantly rolling eyes, shaking you're head, and shouting at the TV 'what the hell was that' or 'someone tackle him, then!!'

03 Nov 2018 22:16:01
So we beat the top team and still the moaners are not happy.
If you do not like the football or the way the manager sets the team up then go watch another team it's your choice.
If however you want to continue to watch this team then get used to it cause it ain't going to change unless this owner decides we ain't making progress but whilst we are still in the running then you are going to get more if the same

Agree12 Disagree9

04 Nov 2018 00:38:10
mickn as long as your happy with what’s happening why are you concerned what anyone else thinks

04 Nov 2018 08:03:53
4 pts off the top. I know we all want flowing attacking football but promotion comes first. I never thought we would challenge this season but after wins against top sides I think we can now. We will only get better as they gel more. Bound to be additions in Jan. Be positive. It looks good lads.

04 Nov 2018 09:00:36
Redfin, teams that generally do well in this league grind out results
I know that’s seems like an obvious thing to say but teams generally set up not to lose first and foremost. Stakes are so high in this division , it’s unlikely you’ll see champagne football.

04 Nov 2018 09:50:26
They will still moan if we get promotion!

04 Nov 2018 10:06:48
Mickn. you used a phrase in your post that actually neutralised what you were moaning at; it's your choice. 😄

04 Nov 2018 10:28:29
Stevie f.
I have never liked this style of football. A while back the following question was asked on this forum.
Q would you prefer attacking football and stay where we are or would you prefer the AK way if it gets us promotion.
For me its a no brained as we have sat in the dolldrums for far to long now and if this style gets promotion then so be it.
Make no mistake this manager knows our owner takes no prisoners and if his style does not work he will be gone.
Would I prefer the Billy D way yes but not with the chaotic regime that we had with the previous owner.
Can we have both with this owner and the BD style , well let's hope so but we have a long hard ladder to climb first.

04 Nov 2018 12:09:11
Mickn I actually agree with you mate but only time you can get away with his’ style ‘ is when your winning

03 Nov 2018 21:33:54
Grabban is banging goals in and brereton is diving to get penalties I know who got the best deal out of that.

Agree9 Disagree4

03 Nov 2018 23:24:05
Breretons gone why don’t you leave the kid alone m

03 Nov 2018 23:28:44
Grabban, jeez that lad took some crap on here not too long ago. 🤗

04 Nov 2018 07:23:47
He earned the name grabnone on here now he's 3rd top scorer in the division!
Also karanka gets his crap yet we are 3 points off auto!

04 Nov 2018 08:06:45
Some people want perfection. You can never please everyone. Keep going Aitor you are doing a top job. Keep scoring Lewis. You are both proving some on here don't have a clue what they are talking about.

04 Nov 2018 08:46:28
Those people who want perfection were happy with not being perfect or anywhere near that last season but this season (because they don’t rate ak) they want perfection.just seems there’s still a bit of bitterness bout this forum .

04 Nov 2018 09:19:47
Lol happy clappers on site I don't know about anybody else and I don't really care cause this is my opinion but the man was given 30 million to spend how you can compare that to any other managers that have been with us in the past that have been given a few million to spend and have not done well I will never know I expect us to be in top 6 with the money he has been given and so does the owner I wouldn't say he has spent all the money wisely as for me 13 million pound was wasted on one player when we could of got 2-3 decent players for that is football is boring as I think if we had a more attacking minded manager this team would suit that better he his a tinker man still doesn't know his best 11 and plays players each week that don't deserve to be in the first team but are put in there because price tag I was wrong about grabban playing and taking goals brilliant could you imagine how many he would get with 2 up front the team is getting there but still inconsistent would I be worried if karanka went to sporting no wouldn't lose sleep at all because whoever took over the team would probably do just as well if not better am I happy with the win hell yes give me more were all entitled to our opinions so get over yourselves 😆

04 Nov 2018 09:31:29
P.s Sutton think your the one who's bitter with you keep mentioning warbo and Brereton they've gone why don't you focus on our new team players and manager and stop telling some of us to pot and kettle comes to mind.

04 Nov 2018 10:53:35
My recollection of the grabban thing is most were saying he was being used wrong not many were saying it was his fault he was just looking isolated

04 Nov 2018 10:53:51
Good post skeggs,I honestly didn't not enjoy watching yesterday,great result but not pretty,still got my ticket for hull away,enjoying away games more than home ones as the system is good away,one shot in a game not my idea of a good game.
