Agree4 Disagree3

19 Sep 2018 20:42:50
AK is not a serial team changer once the players do what he demands.
Keep the faith

19 Sep 2018 18:51:57
Carvalvo replaces Lolley, that is the only change. πŸ‘.

I,ve turned over a new leaf ,I,m Mr optermistic 7 1 tonight ,whoopee!

19 Sep 2018 16:55:27
Hoping for a win tonight against a team I dislike as much as the sheep

19 Sep 2018 19:46:03
Red Always-you’re either a psychic or Krankie in disguise!

19 Sep 2018 12:21:05
Glad we are not playing QPR until 22 December by that time we should be sorted. Never lost to them at home! Would be nervous if we were playing them now. Should we expect instant success from a team of strangers, remarkable if it did, but l think now we should be scoring more, nobody with poise when shooting except perhaps Lolley. The ball should be their friend, not something we desperate to get rid of. We should have the measure of Sheff Weds, but only a 1/ 0, that will do for me. Clean sheets, that, s what my wife insists on, is she trying to tell me something?

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Sep 2018 13:24:00
Well 51 were all going to agree on one thing today a forest win would be great for everyone I'd be happy with 1 nil 😁

19 Sep 2018 14:39:14
Yes 1951, your wife is definitely trying to say something.

19 Sep 2018 17:20:04
Since 51, I think she wants you in the spare room.😊

19 Sep 2018 10:07:51
We've conceded less than three teams in top six which is a positive sign , if we can keep that up then start finding the net more often which I believe will happen then things will start looking up . Trying to be optimistic here πŸ€žπŸ€žπŸ™πŸ™

Agree8 Disagree0

Plans pretty clear, give the manager a promotion brief & ask him to work it out from back to front. Those that reckon he's a few results from the sack need to give their heads a good shake.

Particularly when, if you open ypour eyes wide enough, there's clear signs of boxes being ticked.

Season long project, I think the only folk fretting are the "I just don't like Karanka" clique.

19 Sep 2018 11:00:23
πŸ˜΄πŸ˜΄πŸ˜“ the only thing karanka as to do is get the team winning or scoring goals that would be nice 😁

19 Sep 2018 11:24:26
I'm not overly superstitious but there are occasions when recent records come back to bite you. I understand we've lost our last 4 home games to Sheffield Wednesday scoring 1 and conceding 10. With our difficulty scoring and their current form that is on the up then tonight could be a difficult night at the City Ground. let's hope we can find a bit of form to turn things around because we certainly need 2 wins from tonight and Saturday to kick start our season otherwise we could be close to relegation zone than the top 6.

19 Sep 2018 12:19:34
I hope the "Karanka" affect comes into play. He has won his last 3 against the Owls!
Summary from BBC Sport. Nottingham Forest have lost each of their past seven league matches against Sheffield Wednesday.
Sheffield Wednesday have won their past four league visits to Nottingham Forest by an aggregate score of 10-1.
In all competitions, Forest manager Aitor Karanka lost his first three meetings with Sheffield Wednesday - but the Spaniard has won his past three in a row.

19 Sep 2018 12:36:27
Cjay what are the clear sign's that you can see ? maybe I'm wearing the wrong spec's , I've shook my head a few times and it just makes me feel dizzy , the fact's are 3 points from our last 4 games and 3 points from the drop zone , 6 wins in 27 matches , signing players to replace the one's he's signed pre season , staff car park at breaking point , AK deserves all the criticism he's getting from poor team selection to poor tactic's and poor transfer dealing's , if and when he does something good then we will all sing his praises , but he has to earn the respect of the fans and he can start with a victory tonight and then a minimum 6 points from our next 3 very winnable games

19 Sep 2018 12:40:16
Managers sell themselves like any other employee in the world of business. They expect to be judged on results and outcomes, it’s the law of the jungle. Anyone who still believes football is immune from basic expectations around outcomes needs to give their head a really good shake. Karanka should be given the time to resolve this situation but in the meantime the guys and girls on here who aren’t happy with progress make points equally as valid as those that are. Personally think we need to address the shocking statistic that we haven’t ended there season with the same manager we started at with since 2011. Does this mean I won’t criticise poor performances and lack of goals - no way. What I will say though is there is progress and chances are being created, if the subsequent progress is burying those chances excellent . If the draws regress to defeats all be highlighting it on here whilst respecting the views of others even if their head shakes a different tune to my own.

19 Sep 2018 12:57:44
People seem to be forgetting last season's 19 games he was in charge what changed then ?? All I can see is we have a lower win rate and still can't score and still struggle with set pieces all last season problems or as we got a clean sheet last game our defence is miraculasly fixed now

19 Sep 2018 13:13:55
Karanka came in with a brief to get promoted this/next season. Otherwise he's out.

Given we were firmly stuck in midtable obscurity, the last 19 games of last season were a free shot at getting the foundations in for this season. Hence the dull attritional football working from back to front. let's not forget what Karanka inherited was about as far from a promotion mentality as you could get. Warburton was banking on the 5 year route.

Last seasons results are pretty much irrelevant. He'll get a legitimate shot at promotion this season, so anyone with designs on a ceretain amount of points in the next two or else, is wasting their time.

19 Sep 2018 15:00:04
But the football is same just with more expensive players, how can last season be irrelevant with the results the same as those 19 games, 2 different teams same problems the only constant is ak and his tactics, 21 points in 20 games last season 8 points from 7 games this season definitely a pattern there, no one wants him to succeed more than me but I'm just being realistic that the same patterns are forming as last season or am I the only one concerned

19 Sep 2018 15:35:35
That pattern will improve given time. Likewise the football, although I totally disagree the football ain't improved this season. It has.

What do folk want 9 games in? We ain't conceding many, we ain't losing many & we've played a few form sides. If that's the worst it gets then we're doing okay. Unless your only satisfied with running headlong at teams, there's absolutely nowt wrong with the tactics.

Pressure gets ramped up tonight & Sat though, games we should be winning.

19 Sep 2018 16:46:31
The standards are better this season . Why oh why can’t we dominant set peices though ? It’s really annoying 😑

19 Sep 2018 16:57:59
You say tonights game is a game we should be winning why. Wednesday have won three out of their last four games. Yes we played well against Swansea but it does not mean we can demand a win.

19 Sep 2018 17:05:42
At least 3 of those 9 were very lucky escapes with last minute goals always coming from behind so ok luck has been on our side but it will run out, nothing wrong with the tactics I've heard it all now lol, 4 at the back 2 defensive midfielders who drop into that back 4 huge gaps in midfield and one isolated figure up front, I just hope the Watson colback pairing is a thing of the past never know such negative football he is setting up to not lose which never works in the championship

19 Sep 2018 10:05:31
My starting 11 tonight pants janko hefele fox Robinson colback geddy cash carvalho Lolley grabban thoughts?

Agree5 Disagree0

19 Sep 2018 10:38:48
Dias will start at home. Take Cash out, & possibly Colback for Yacob.

19 Sep 2018 17:38:56





19 Sep 2018 09:20:28
Cjay going back to your bang average squad size comment we have the largest squad in the league at 33 with most teams having 22 to 25 so we not far off a whole extra 11 stick up for ak as much as your like but every man involved in football is saying how ridiculas it's getting and is giving himself no chance of finding his best 11 with to many combinations.

Agree6 Disagree3

19 Sep 2018 09:45:53
Red James
I could be wrong but i think there could be a lot of the current squad that have refused to leave that AK told they were not in his plans, even though new players have kept coming in.

19 Sep 2018 10:07:57
Hope for a full house tonight at the cg watched a bit of stoke and direby a lot of supporters turned as plastic seats !!!

19 Sep 2018 11:48:11
Last year Wolves had 32 & cardiff had 30, I ain't so much interested in who's got what, more what it takes to get you up.

Besides, why do we get bogged down with wanting the same eleven every week? i'd prefer we had different things to bring to the table each week than one plan fits all. That didn't really work under the last bloke.

19 Sep 2018 12:20:35
Wolves had 32
Cardiff had 30

We should be more interested in what it takes to get out this league than the average.

Think we get bogged down with best 11s when the reality is you need a variety of everything to win this league. Horses for Courses an all that.

19 Sep 2018 12:59:07
Because teams that achieve success have a settled 11 not 5 or 6 changes a game tinker men don't succeed

19 Sep 2018 15:05:41
APS. if we don't get a full house. the rest of the squad will make the numbers up!!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

18 Sep 2018 20:39:32
Does anyone know what is holding up the confirmation of the new striker, has he trained with the squad.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Sep 2018 21:06:27
He's been sent to packing for an express delivery! πŸ€” πŸ™„

18 Sep 2018 21:59:43
If you look about you will see that it’s his work permit.

18 Sep 2018 22:07:30
Work Permit probably

18 Sep 2018 22:38:03
I bet it's is work permit 😁

18 Sep 2018 22:47:13
Waiting for a brown paper bag in GreeceπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ€”

19 Sep 2018 00:15:36
I'm hoping the bloke is a bit of a loner 😁

18 Sep 2018 20:00:15
Murphy and Soudani out for the Weds game so it looks like Grabban on his up front, not looking good πŸ€”

Agree3 Disagree2

18 Sep 2018 20:26:07
That’s a shame, a fit Murphy is our best option to lead he line in our system.

18 Sep 2018 21:51:13
The approach will settle on something similar to the second half at Swansea. That needs a Mobile striker like Grabban to get on his toes & rotate with the three behind.

Murphy was more a target man whilst Watson & Colback were struggling to get us out.

18 Sep 2018 22:15:07
Gomis can't be used as he played for the U23s this week. What about having Appiah on the bench.

18 Sep 2018 22:35:12
Brereton would of got his chance.

18 Sep 2018 22:40:48
I thought he’d get a start at Blackburn - not as yet though.

19 Sep 2018 00:18:04
Wow cjay you must spend all day trying to look at the team and stats a bit like karanka and both of you still can't get it right 😁

19 Sep 2018 07:10:47
Bererton would have got his chance!! And missed it 🀣

19 Sep 2018 07:44:36
Jay, there's not much research involved to be fair, its fairly basic stuff.

Heres a piece of free advice: Don't post the first thing that comes into your head.

19 Sep 2018 08:18:14
Lol i don't do that cjay I would be barred from this site with all the swearing I would put in my comments anyways maybe Mr karanka will start the ball rolling in his court tonight with a win it would be a good start seeing as though we don't have a good record against Wednesday mind you we have a squad to beat them I'm sure most of them will get a game and nice to see foriestie not playing for them good win or even a 1 nil to lift the fans would be great

19 Sep 2018 08:51:47
Basic stuff like stats?
Warbo played 37 won 15
Karanka played 30 won 7
I think we understand you perfectly 🀣🀣🀣🀣

19 Sep 2018 09:40:30
I get buying into Karanka can be difficult if you haven't the attention span, but if this is all about pining for Warburton & his merry band of kids & Scottish spoon burners, i'm even more stunned.

Ok Warburton won 15 games, but he lost the rest & then started to lose consistently once teams realised that slow build up posession stuff was easily countered by knocking us off the ball.

Warburtons way would have took 10 years, 10 years you don't get in football. Which is why you need a handle on every aspect of the game.

19 Sep 2018 10:16:34
It's certainly difficult,buying into karanka cjay,How long before even you realise he's not that good?
Not bothered about warbo ,just showing you the facts and that warbo only signed five players and had to sell our best striker and one transfer window.
He wasn't allowed wholesale changes and had to make do with what was there,gave youth a chance and fox a chance to play regularly at centre back.
Karanka has been given plenty too much in my opinion,we now have a large squad but only two strikers,he's bought in his captain,Watson and now looks like he'll be discarded in a favour of loanee.
Time for all the talk to stop and get some wins on the table or he has to go,

19 Sep 2018 11:05:41
79 cjay talks about the karanka haters which is a load of crap we just want to see signs of progress lol anyway cjay bangs on about karanka haters yet he looks like he was a warbo hater that wouldn't of gave him time lot and kettle I would say let's see how Manuel gets on tonight

19 Sep 2018 12:25:56
Didnt hate the guy, backed him throughout, just saw past the win ratio.

19 Sep 2018 13:28:39
Lol cjay shame you can't see past karankas at forest

19 Sep 2018 13:32:05
Wish I could see past karankas win ratio,any chance I can borrow your glasses?🀩🀩🀩
