Takes a real man to admit he was wrong,it’s a shame some others can’t/won’t follow suit.

04 Nov 2018 08:07:47
Spot on sutton. Well done 1951.

04 Nov 2018 09:09:48
I actually thought warburtons style was boring 20 pointless sideways and backward passes to get out of your own half but it’s not fair to compare him with Ak they were working with totally different budgets.

04 Nov 2018 09:51:18
1 win at the City Ground in the League since 1993. The result was never in doubt!

04 Nov 2018 10:15:16
Stevie, his football was utter ficking dross , I’ve never lest as many games so early. Credit to him for signing Darikwa and Murphy. Darikwa is looking a player now . He looked appalling under warbo, AK is really developing him now. I think he’d have got a tune out of McKay as well. 70% possession 65% in our own half. Worst football in ever seen at forest - weak, slow and boring. Karanka has his many faults for sure but it’s an improvement on warburton. If his drum beat so great how come he’s not got another gig?

04 Nov 2018 10:48:59
2star i ain’t defending warbo just saying you can’t compare the 2maybe his style would have worked better had he been able to spend money on better quality players we will never know as I posted further down if ak’s style is what it takes to get promoted I can accept it the problem he will have is when things go slightly wrong it’s difficult to defend a dull style when the results aren’t coming,

03 Nov 2018 20:59:18
I guess I'll get murdered on here for this, but the weakness if there is one still seems to me to be Guediora. I kept a record of most of the times he was mentioned in the commentary. First 10 mins Carvalho and Guediora kept giving the ball away. 14 mins Geddy fouls Fleck. 19 mins Gueddy passes well astray. 24 mins Gued loses ball again. 28 mins Gued poor pass again gifts possession. 44 mins Gued poor pass across the field. 45 Mins Gued poor pass out of play. 50 mins Gued pumps ball upfield when he doesn't have to, plenty to pass to. 53 mins Gued plays ball behind Cash despite having oceans of time. 58 mins Gued has ball taken off him easily. 59 mins Gued shoots well over bar. 60 mins Gued overhits pass during attack - it breaks down. 74 mins Gued poor pass ball goes out. 84 mins Gued loses ball in their area 85 mins Gued passes ball too far forward. 88 mins Gued fails to see Grabban carries on and gets a free kick. 89 mins Gued puts ball out instead of to a Forest player in space. Maybe I'm wrong and he played well, but it didn't feel like it from the commentary I heard, perhaps people who were there can put me right.
I guess we are using him because he can help the younger players, but to my mind we need a creative midfielder who can pick out proper passes, Osborn for instance.
If Sheffield United are a top of the League
Team with the old codgers they had up front today, then my guess is any team can win this league.
Our lads played well, defended well and got the win we needed, so I'm really pleased.

Save your scapegoats for the draws and defeats bsered 😉

03 Nov 2018 22:27:21
Thing is with the radio is you don’t see who is closing him down or what position they were in when receiving the ball and wheather it was a good pass to him in the first place.also doesn’t show what type of pass he was trying.

04 Nov 2018 07:23:45
Best advice I can give is cone to the game mate. I genuinely thought about not going yesterday but really glad I did . Ps AG didn’t have his best game and did give the ball away a lot

04 Nov 2018 08:56:52
In my attempt to stand up for Pep I'll suggest that maybe sometimes he gives the ball away because he doesn't just play the 5 yard sideways pass that our other midfielders are so good at.

04 Nov 2018 09:04:49
For sure perks. His bar is set high because on his day those passes you mention he usually pulls off. When he has an off day he doesn’t . You’re absolutely right though most don’t even try what AG does. And more imply- he’d die for the cause - fantastic player. Ps Dawson was like some kind of warrior yesterday I’d play him every week , Figueiredo will learn loads playing alongside

04 Nov 2018 09:23:49
Your right perks he does try a little to hard at times trying to find that perfect pass when an easier pass is on.

04 Nov 2018 11:16:01
Not lost a game with Guedioura in the team this season, all 12 of them (W5, D7). But let's drop him because he sounds bad on the radio.

Football fans are brilliant.

04 Nov 2018 12:39:06
Jeez, I think you need a hobby bsered.

Well done Forest, great 3 points in a hard fought and close game, moving on up.

03 Nov 2018 19:52:52
Singing and 3 points wow the southern comfort is coming out tonight.

Agree3 Disagree0

03 Nov 2018 19:48:32
Great performance today, by the FANS. I said in an earlier post that us (the fans) were not getting behind the team at the right time, well today it was so much better, not perfect but better not only did the bridgeford end sing its hart out as usual but could not only here the Trent End do abit but even the cloughy stand as well, even a slight tittering came from the Peter Taylor stand. We'll done all but still not satisfied can we build on this for the stoke game.

Agree7 Disagree1

03 Nov 2018 20:49:57
A slight tittering from the peter Taylor stand? Without A block the place would generally be a graveyard.

03 Nov 2018 21:18:53
Thought that might get a reaction,lets get more noise all round

04 Nov 2018 09:52:54
Agreed KB . Nice to hear that the fans are finally tuning up the volume.

04 Nov 2018 09:56:57
Can only suggest the people who have given me the thumbs down don’t go to the city ground , for years only A block had any life in it . Trent End and Clough Stand there’s usually as old Les Dawson used to say - more life in a tramps vest.

03 Nov 2018 19:43:42
Yacob absolute quality on today's performance. Calm under pressure, great communicator, disciplined and tidy in possession. Hard as nails too. Hope it continues, he will be a great addition at this level if that proves to be the case. 👍.

Agree7 Disagree0

03 Nov 2018 21:26:40
Should have played several games ago.

04 Nov 2018 11:30:37
Watson or yacob uuuuuuuuuuuum

03 Nov 2018 18:44:37
Take the three points but bored rigid with the performance if that's what you want to watch then OK, but it's shocking football to watch

Agree12 Disagree16

03 Nov 2018 18:53:29
I thought we were fantastic today , higher up the pitch physical, strong and aggressive. That’s the way this league is I’m afraid mate.

03 Nov 2018 19:14:46
See I can’t work you out your not happy with this but was ok watching the last managers team passing it around on there own half hardly venturing forward with any intent!

03 Nov 2018 19:30:23
Sutton it was awful end of.
I like entertainment in football,there is no entertainment,ifit lights your candle then enjoy.

03 Nov 2018 20:05:07
We have seen some entertaining football, we aren’t going to play stellar football in this league every week, it’s about grinding out results, this year the championship is as hard as it’s ever been.
There’s a few on here and it looks like there pint is half empty, but mine and the majority on here, it’s half full.

03 Nov 2018 20:22:35
Agreed mate,mines is half full. and it still has a big frothy head on it!!!
To beat one of the top sides after the Burton result has to be the perfect tonic???

03 Nov 2018 20:24:19
It’s no worse than the football we played under warburton that you was so happy just doesn’t make any sense.under the last manager we’re were very pedestrian and kept the ball in our own half as much as possible.what was entertaining about that?
And don’t say it was like city or barca because it wasn’t.

03 Nov 2018 20:37:17
One shot on target in 90 mins from two teams and you call that entertainment???

03 Nov 2018 20:47:15
You could see it as two teams of similar ability fighting it out, but for the most part cancelling each other out, until win got a break and took it.

03 Nov 2018 20:58:05
Where have I called that entertaining?so what was so entertaining last season under warburton that you were so happy with?

03 Nov 2018 21:07:56
3 shots on target.

03 Nov 2018 22:06:54
Wow three?? What three were they then ??

03 Nov 2018 23:08:55
Still swerving my questions I see.

03 Nov 2018 23:11:42
Beat top of the table and your still not would of been over the moon with that result and performance this time last season.

04 Nov 2018 09:53:29
Ff799, clearly does not appreciate the tactical chess that is played out by the better teams in this league. There is more to good football than counting shots on goal!
Why not celebrate the fact that Forest have kept 3 top sides away from his nominated "worst keeper" without conceding a goal ( Var has cancelled Leeds goal) and barely a shot?
Clougie would have taken 1-0 all day long to grind out results over 46 games.

04 Nov 2018 09:54:51
No pleasing some folk. We lose and they moan, which is fair enough sometimes. We win and they still moan. Does it really matter how entertaining the football is if we get 3 points? No extra points for scoring more goals and no extra points for playing entertaining football.

04 Nov 2018 09:55:40
Ff779, I don’t think the game was ever going to be pretty mate but in this division with a lot of teams of a similar standard there’s going to be plenty more to come must admit I thought it looked a draw all day but I think it’s a game we wouldn’t have won in the last few seasons i’m happy with the win as regards the style we just got to hope the ends justify the means, anything to have a shot at getting out of this bloody division.

03 Nov 2018 18:36:48
Not long got home from work and was cheered up no end when i saw the result. It would be great to see the same team for the next game, 4 points off the top of the table, just as well so many teams are being inconsistent.

Consistent team selection, and the players showing up in mind and body every game then we could stay in the top six.

Well done everyone at Forest.

Agree6 Disagree1

03 Nov 2018 19:06:10
A wins a win!!!

03 Nov 2018 19:33:57
What have i written to suggest i'm not happy with the win.?

03 Nov 2018 20:54:46
Don't mean you mate.
Don't know why we can't just be happy with the 3 points.

03 Nov 2018 21:00:18
Too right, if you can not be happy when we win it is sad.

03 Nov 2018 21:03:20
Rogie happy with 3 points and the 3 Stellas I've had so far get some Guinness down ya pal 😆

03 Nov 2018 18:24:13
For once can we support this manager? We have lost 2 games in the league. When were we last in this position? Carvalhio will be a success and thank you AK for bringing him here and Grabban, shipping out BB and the others . At last we are gaining some respect after being the dregs. If AK is not recognized for his achievements or reads the derogatory remarks on this web site he will go - and we will sink without a trace. Keep with this manager and he will bring success to our once mighty club.

Agree7 Disagree1

03 Nov 2018 18:35:47
Too right,sold bb for £7mill and got Grabban for £ wouldn’t have half the goals and can’t get in the Blackburn team.great bit of bizzo done there.

03 Nov 2018 18:35:51
Well said that man

03 Nov 2018 18:36:39
Doc you need to see a doc mate 🤣

03 Nov 2018 18:52:19
I have criticised AK but not asked for him to be sacked, you however are suggesting no other manager is up to the task, do you really believe that?

You're saying he will go and we will sink without a trace is so over the top.

03 Nov 2018 18:17:20
FC Porto officials spotted in the stand today ,they looked very impressed.

Agree1 Disagree3

03 Nov 2018 18:26:06
With the stand? Well we did give it a lick of paint.😁👍

03 Nov 2018 20:10:42
Class mate

03 Nov 2018 20:12:55
Carlo maybe the Sporting officials should talk to FF799 as he thinks the football is boring and unimpressive

03 Nov 2018 20:28:05
If they want entertaining forest should give the warburtons number afterall he gets teams playing like city and barca “apparently”

03 Nov 2018 20:30:04
It is

03 Nov 2018 21:00:23
Lol.i no your only messing because nobody would ever say warburtons football is anything like city or barca.
What was so entertaining about losing 7-8 games out of 14 last season?going 1 down and not fighting to get a draw and just accepting defeat?

03 Nov 2018 18:16:10
Shame we didn't take the gamble on Jack Marriot aswell, cost the sheep about the same as what we paid for Soudani. Who would you rather have?

Agree2 Disagree2

03 Nov 2018 18:31:40
You give me 10% of what Forest Paid for Soudhani and I will give you 10% of what the sheep paid for Marriot, will even pay the postage if that helps ;-)

03 Nov 2018 18:37:41
Had high hopes for Soudani but It’s looking like he’s another one that’s going to be permanently injured.

03 Nov 2018 18:58:07
Only joking of course. Your maths are a bit out

03 Nov 2018 18:51:47
Soundani for £1.5m v £5m inc add ons for Marriott

03 Nov 2018 20:31:53
Marriott has played 688 mins of football for 5 goals league and cup
Soudani has played 235 for 2 goals.
Not much difference part from about £2mill extra for Marriott.
