That is a proper and realistic expectation, it would be a huge improvement from last years final day heart palpitations.

Disagree. Top ten in the prem is realistic buf in this league top 6 is a reasoable target. Brighton and huddersfield got there on low budgets. Just good simple football strategy. Strong no nonesense footballers.
I would never campaign for the removal of a manager like people did with freedman but our manager makes the strangest of decisions particularly playing lightweights when a more robust approach is called for.

Top ten haha dream on!
Unless the defense is strengthened in January we don't stand a chance.
Take a look at the table it makes interesting reading. Only 2 teams have lost more games than us and we are the only team in the top half with a minus goal difference.
We have only totally outplayed one team in the first 19 games.
The win one lose one run will eventually come to an end with the wins more likely to become draws rather than the defeats.
Having already lost 10 we are on course to lose 20 or more games. Teams losing that number of games over a season in the championship finish below the bottom 10 never mind in the top 10.

Red Fred - bah humbug πŸ€”

29 Nov 2017 11:50:54
But if we sign Aden Flint and James Chester in January we will make the top 2 πŸ˜€.
Oops I forgot, we'll need more than that cus we don't score enough either ☹.

Agree3 Disagree1

29 Nov 2017 11:56:10
There are 13 teams that have already lost 7 games or more,so I can't see them suddenly changing either,most of those will be on course to lose 20 also if we use that theory.
Football at this level is too hard to predict where we'll end up come the seasons end.

Exactly! Tell that to the top 10 brigade πŸ˜‚.

Heard we might be signing "Wiiiiilllmaaaa!!" She'd be a "Bedrock" at Centre back!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Bottom of the table have lost the same games as 2 teams in this league that have lost more than us that’s burton and of those is just outside the relegation zone the other in it.
There’s only 4teams that have concede more than us 3 of those are in the relegation zone.if warbo got a little more streetwise he could turn some of these defeats into draws.then we would be cooking on gas.shame he hasn’t got that in his the rangers and Brentford fans said.its his way and his way only.

Agree5 Disagree2

29 Nov 2017 18:08:35
Our inconsistency will see us finish in the bottom half. Mid table at best. With Lichaj leaving in January, after rejecting a new contract, we will need a right back, a couple of centre halves and a striker. We won't be able to afford all 4.

Agree4 Disagree3

29 Nov 2017 18:15:11
Well if the average is 20 losses and we cannot draw that's 78 points and the play offs, which is better than our 69 point projection on results so far?
Anyway is all bully bully as unless we got 138 points and a goal difference of 100 the Formoaner's would still be popping out the woodwork!

Agree2 Disagree4

You say our inconsistency will see us finish in the bottom half.

Have you thought about any players we get in January might improve the team?

Have you thought about our team might sort out it's inconsistencies the more they play?

Rangers and Brentford have both gone backwards since he left,be carefull what you wish for as that's two managers that have failed to reach the position where he left each club.
Rangers fans were all bullish cus they got a foreign manager and foreign players, coming on here, in peace to slag off Warburton,they're not now and the manager made a pigs ear of it.
They have now hit rock bottom and lost to the bottom side,bet there's more than a few would like him back.

All might's and maybe's, GreyandRed. As from what I've seen up until this point of the season is what I'm basing my opinion on. Which is all I can do. I can't really see one or two signings altering the consistency levels in all honesty.

Agree0 Disagree0

I suppose the difference between you and i is you think about what is and i think what might be.

Off course if we were really struggling i would find it harder to be hopeful.

New players will not give us consistency, but could improve the team.

Consistency comes with playing together and therefore knowing what others are likely to do and where they will be.

Agree0 Disagree0

Rangers haven't gone backwards they are 3rd.
Bearing in mind the level isn't of championship quality they are still 3rd. .like i have said in previous posts consistency,cohesion and synergy is needed. but you have to take into equation the possibility of injuries but isn't that what training is for to gel a team?
Us fans don't see how the team trains or what's entailed in their training?

Agree0 Disagree1

30 Nov 2017 10:12:14
It all takes time and patience. Consistency will come with more games. We need to strengthen at the back as we have no depth due to sicknotes.

Agree3 Disagree1

4 big strong experienced players in their mid twenties down the spine of the team will start to iron out the inconsistencies and make us contenders in this league.

This will give us a platform for clean sheets and a more direct style when required against the spoilers of our tippy tappy football which will then become more effective.


Carry on squad building Mr Warbo a man with a clear plan which is very refreshing for a Forest manager!

if you look at brentford and rangers its taken MW atleast a year to get the team where he wants them to be! i'd be happy with a top 10 finish but who knows it could be more than that this year if we make some signings in Jan! in warbs we trust! you reds
