Osborn heading one off the line at Bristol ,WBA hitting the bar and post ,yes we have played some nice football but without these instances we would be pointless now ,fine margins.

Hello Mr Warburton.

08 Aug 2018 19:02:50
Thatโ€™s football for you Carlo Carlo- we could also have had a couple more goals and have six points now. Half full or half empty??

08 Aug 2018 19:30:52
Donโ€™t make the effort to respond 2stone some people will only see what they want to see

08 Aug 2018 19:53:09
A bit like your post Carlo.
What if we had took our chances in both games Carlo we would be on 6 points.

08 Aug 2018 20:44:29
carlo ya know how ya get on the right bus to go to the matches. try and do the same when ya make posts on this site.

08 Aug 2018 22:22:25
Carlo the pessimistic!
Never ceases to amaze me with negative comments that come from so called forest supporters.
Perhaps bridge or knitting may benefit you more carlo?

08 Aug 2018 22:31:44
Carlo you said you didn't want to catch what I'd got not long back
Well I got the feel good factor and really enjoyed watching a great game of football last night.
It's obviously not spread to you yet.

08 Aug 2018 22:39:04
I agree Carlo but that's where luck comes into play and sometimes you need that to win a league next 8 games will tell us more mate Saturday there will be no excuses but liking the way we are playing at the minute

08 Aug 2018 22:41:11
Did you enjoy last night's match fawaz??
Only you never said.

08 Aug 2018 23:26:07
No he didn't 79 he was watching a repeat of love island ๐Ÿ˜†

08 Aug 2018 23:29:48
I thought we were a little too defensive reverting back to karankas style of play.

09 Aug 2018 06:38:20
Im in Mexico ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ having tequilas

09 Aug 2018 07:39:56
You won't be seeing the sunrise or anything else rise drinking that stuff.๐Ÿ˜Ž

09 Aug 2018 07:59:54
One tequila two tequila three tequila,floor๐Ÿ˜œ

09 Aug 2018 08:33:26
Ff if the team keeps improving we will al be doing the Mexican wave then celebrating with tequila after every game. ๐Ÿ˜

09 Aug 2018 11:41:07
Leave me out of that one stag,
It tastes like s--t and it leaves you feeling like s--t.๐Ÿท๐Ÿป๐Ÿป for me mate.

08 Aug 2018 15:54:49
Watching from tv land in lancs i liked a lot. Fox has added a cool head and a worthy skipper. Lots of slick passing through the middle and class ball switching from fox and gueduiora. However Dias and carvahlo faded massively second half. WBA created more clear cut chances than us but the big surprise was how poor Darikwa and osbourne were. No lack of effort but composure zero and particularly Darikwa passing was shocking. Osbourne is no leftback, he slips and falls over in his eagerness to be buzy. Is Robinson not the finished article?
A lot to be positive about but in football you only win by defending well and putting the ball in the net, saying we were unlucky won't get us points. Turning dominance into wins is the next step. Hopefully with a bit more muscle and the right personelle it will come. The crowd were brilliant!

Agree6 Disagree2

08 Aug 2018 14:44:04
I'm going to be honest guys I thought after last night performance everyone on here would be really happy with what they'd witnessed.
Didn't actually believe i would be seeing so many negative comments .
We will play far worst than that and win.
Not a time to pick on individual players,it's a time to get behind them and I certainly hope I witness many more games like that this season, three points on Saturday and all's well.

Yours sincerely Victor Meldrew๐Ÿคฉ

08 Aug 2018 14:53:24
Lol 79 a positive from me ๐Ÿ˜†

08 Aug 2018 15:08:32
"I don't believe it"! The best post from Victor this Year?

Are you sure the excitement did not get the better of you?

Another 9 games like this and AK will be on his way. Back to Real Madrid and Skegs prediction will have come true!

๐Ÿคฃ ๐Ÿคฃ ๐Ÿคฃ

08 Aug 2018 16:26:06
Just giving credit where it's due red.
Karanka will have to improve his win ratio before he'd ever get a gig like that.
Five wins from 23 games?
See your lot won 3nil last night.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

08 Aug 2018 17:23:42
Lol red about as much chance as your man velios playing up front for them

08 Aug 2018 22:23:23
Thumbs up Victor m! ๐Ÿ‘. I don't believe it.

08 Aug 2018 20:18:49
And there was I thinking you had both turned a corner? ๐Ÿค”

Well my mate Karanka will be keeping your knives locked in the drawer this season and 28,748 other fans are vocally expressing the same view and also backing the golden oldies!

Going to be a very exciting season so plenty of time to get you both with the programme๐Ÿ˜

As for my nearest team Boro its going to be interesting to see whether Mr Old School Pulis with his up and at them signings and selling of proper footballers is going to do a Warnock or whether football will prevail?๐Ÿ™ƒ

I can always organise a good seat in the stands at the Riverside for you both for our visit if you want to join me for a football lesson?๐Ÿ˜ฑ

08 Aug 2018 23:22:57
Nice to see you using your emojis red,you must be the only one who had to ask the edds were to find them,but at least your making up for being twenty years behind the rest of๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

09 Aug 2018 06:21:49
Lol you should know me better by now I tell it as it is 2 games into the new season with 11 new players and some very good signings that no other manager in the past as been given I damn well expect them to play better than what we've been use to wether were the best team in the championship not sure on that middlesborough leeds are looking good at minute stoke and villa will be up there so we need to be consistent we have a great squad so we can rest players and still have good players on pitch which we have been missing for many seasons we've had 2 hard games against good teams and played good football and are unbeaten reading will be the one we drop points against teams we should be beating on paper then it will be another long season so far things are looking good but Mr karanka still as some way to go yet to convince me he his the chosen โ˜so you will after excuse me if I'm not a โ˜ fan yet like I said the next 8 games will tell us wetter the โ˜will be ๐Ÿ’ชor be ๐Ÿšฎ till then bring on the next game and 3 points and first win ๐Ÿ˜†

08 Aug 2018 12:17:37
So encouraged by last night and genuinely entertained at a live game for some time.

I do have concerns over the defence though. Fox was excellent but for me Dawson has to start as does Robinson at left back. Darikwa and Osborn doesn't give us a good balance as they both fly forward and leave gaps.

Agree4 Disagree1

08 Aug 2018 12:34:25
Some great, positive posts on here guys!! AK must be doing something right,think we'll beat Reading!!! We're only going to get better!!! FTID!!

08 Aug 2018 13:37:52
Too defensive for my liking.

08 Aug 2018 14:29:40
I noticed most of wba attacks were down the left side they knew Osborn was our weak link in the back as for dawickwa he was pants no where near the player Eric was

08 Aug 2018 15:15:43
Unfortunately Eric could not move the ball quickly enough to get us going although better defensively than TD.

You will see an even better improvement at Right Back when Byram lands gets going?

08 Aug 2018 21:54:49
Twest brom attacked that side because they have Philips there who is class. Nothing to do with Osborn. Why do people love knocking him? I think he is an excellent player myself.

08 Aug 2018 23:03:04
Spot on Redfin, Philips will be one of the class acts in the championship.
But only if "twest Brom" can keep hold of him.
He linked well with lolley and think after that performance to pick on any individual is WRONG.
Great performance spoiled by moaners who are moaning for no reason, didn't hear any in the ground.

08 Aug 2018 11:59:00
Trevor Nelson on Radio Two has just been saying that last night's match was amazing to watch. "Some of the best football since the world cup".

Agree6 Disagree0

08 Aug 2018 10:19:33
To me we look like exactly what we are. Are promising team that looks like we are gettng used to each other. Some misunderstandings and sloppy balls but for the most of it we were excellent. Still look iffy from set pieces and gave away too many silly free kicks but I loved watching us spray the ball about. Best players for me were Fox, Tobias, Dias and Guedy. Osborn,Carvalho and Colback not far behind either. A win against Reading and I can see us going on a run and being hard to beat. Goals will come with confidence.

{Ed001's Note - personally, as a neutral, I was very very impressed with Forest last night.}

Agree7 Disagree0

08 Aug 2018 10:49:41
Nice one Ed, I donโ€™t think we will be playing you anytime soon though pal.

{Ed001's Note - impossible to say with the Championship, anyone can get promotion just by putting together a good run. Once Grabban gets his shooting boots on you have potential there. Centre backs look good, dangerous from wide areas and your midfield offers good support to the striker. There is every chance you could be in the mix at the end of the season. It is just if you can maintain your form.}

08 Aug 2018 11:57:41
Second thoughts about Grabban: Poor start,looked well out of touch but second half he used the ball well and he looked comfortable. Just a hunch, he could be our top scorer this year! (Not sure about the beard though!)

08 Aug 2018 12:27:48
Thought we done superb against an Ex Premier League team. the difference for me to last season,was after we went one up,we didn't sit back, instead we went for the killer second. all very promising for me!!! COYRS!!!

08 Aug 2018 13:25:16
To be fair though Norfolk Red, we didn't give Grabban brilliant service last night. The final ball into the box wasn't good enough. The chances he did have were difficult balls over the top, or comming in from wide angles. I saw him several times picking the ball up on the half way line. Do we really want the one striker that deep looking to make his own chances? I'm sure he will score with the right service!

08 Aug 2018 10:08:10
Early days but the signs are good. Guediora outstanding, Carvalho one to watch. Defence looked ok to me but we showed no fire-power in front of goal, Grabban not up to it yet. A pleasing performance with lots of energy and we controlled a lot of the game, but 10 games or so in and we will know more. To be honest either side could have snatched it, but unless we score more goals in a game, one will never be enough.

Agree9 Disagree0

08 Aug 2018 10:43:25
Great summary BSered

08 Aug 2018 10:45:33
The Portuguese lads looked great but so did McKay when the sun was out, will they be as tenacious on a cold night in February. Iโ€™m remaining open minded but personally didnโ€™t see enough improvement last night to conclude we will be challenging the top six

08 Aug 2018 11:57:36
Not enough improvement ?When was the last time you saw Forest playing like they did last night?

08 Aug 2018 12:28:52
Have to agree with you there mate.

08 Aug 2018 13:36:00
I get what 2 star means here. There is definet improvement on last year, but he doesn't think we are a top 6 side yet. That's fair comment I feel. We did have moments last night where we looked fragile at the back. Also, not being clinical with goals when well on top. It's very early days, and all this could come on as we get going. Against weaker teams, we may well run riot with a performance of that level.

08 Aug 2018 14:17:46
Errrr we played like city and barca last season remember. so itโ€™s not been that long!

08 Aug 2018 23:45:46
Sutton go to the bread bin and see if you can find your loaf.
warburtons thickest should do the trick.๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
I've never known any one so bitter about an ex manager,we've had far worst,GET OVER IT.

08 Aug 2018 06:16:27
Adlene Pogba ???? He's been top drawer can't believe it ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Agree10 Disagree0

08 Aug 2018 06:38:10
Absolutely outstanding last night, long may it continue. I posted yesterday that he was lacking fitness last season and got many thumbs down.

08 Aug 2018 11:27:06
Guilty as charged regarding AG (easier than spelling his name, Carlo understands ๐Ÿ˜‰). He has answered his critics of last season and probably first name on the team sheet now. As both my bets went down, I'm probably in the 4 points dropped camp. All things considered though, we're probably 10% off of being a top side. Given the turnover of players and the short time together, quite impressive. A home win on Saturday will hopefully settle everyone down. FTID.

08 Aug 2018 01:31:52
Nice to see the MOM in the ground actually was the correct choice. AG was a different person to the end of last season.
Foxy, what a turn around. From a crap hoofing LB, to frozen out like a leper under DF. To CB & now captain.
And all the time he stayed professional, dug in & waited for his chance.
I am glad to have been proven wrong. Quality.

Agree12 Disagree0

08 Aug 2018 05:58:02
i suppose in a way a point is better than none. had worral been playing. you could guarantee he would have made the mistake to let them score to win the game. were ever worral is. let him stay there

08 Aug 2018 06:40:04
It's a shame, we definitely deserved all 3 points but need to be more clinical in front of goal. Goncalves didn't track back for their goal, Phillips was his man.

08 Aug 2018 07:39:46
Looked like the same problems to me tbh. Nice football no end product - the nice football is at least being played further up the pitch . 20 shots on goal 5 on target says all you need to know.

West Brom came to defend and defended well? Or do we still lack a killer punch? Concerned by how weak our fullbacks look. Darikwa gave the ball away cheaply a few times.

Lolley - a dreadful performance hope we donโ€™t see him Saturday.

Colback, guedioura and Figueiredo absolutely outstanding but they werenโ€™t the problem last year were they?

Grabban- ๐Ÿ˜ not sure if Iโ€™m honest.

08 Aug 2018 08:56:32
2 star it wasn't a bad performance mate,it was excellent passing and flowing football at times, just lacked that bit of composure in the final third.
Lolley played well it was just his decision making when he had his chances.
Darikwa and Osborn are converted wingers, so has the manager failed to see this and act on it?
Full backs have been a problem for years now,especially left back,but it never seems to get addressed.
All in all a pleasing performance for me, certainly more positives than negatives.

08 Aug 2018 10:10:02
Once it all clicks we will be unbeatable and as fir grabbing he will start banging them in just needs that first goal

08 Aug 2018 10:16:46
Was one of better performance but still think we're missing that striker with a killer punch would like to see soudani put on earlier think he has more to prove than grabban would like another striker in and another defender please no more midfielders

08 Aug 2018 10:47:10
Guys, thanks for your great responses , very much in agreement especially regarding the full backs.

08 Aug 2018 00:21:18
So was it Murphy's fault we didn't win again? Or is he the only Forest striker who has scored this season? Shooting practice? I thought we spent more than ยฃ6M?

Agree3 Disagree8

08 Aug 2018 13:45:24
Red, I really don't understand why you have this view on Murphy. He's been dreadful for months, but scores one goal and everything is forgotten! If he gets into double figures this season, you can take the applauds that you told us. However, he's only had one good season in his whole career. There is nothing to suggest he will score goals.
