A big win and double over QPR. Brilliant AK and the boys. Give Brum more of the same and I think we might be safe and can enjoy watching Tommo, Lolley and Co do the business under Aitor as he slowly but surely takes us back to the promised land. Wonder what Skegman and FF79 will find to criticise about the latest AK masterplan and all his awful signings. Nice to hear that the bossman made the game from Greece. U REDS.

Plain to see the results are now coming, this team is now competing. Our manager has now got this team playing with confidence, a massive achievement in any job.
The belief and respect are now starting to filter through.
Totally agree Ret, we are on the rise.

24 Feb 2018 23:21:23
good post guys gave them loads of TLC today , tommo lolley cash
nice ring to it don't yous think ?

25 Feb 2018 04:19:29
lets not get to ahead of ourselves, it was a fantastic win and more important the performance, but we were still shaky at the back, so let's just give it another 2 or 3 games, defo buzzing for the Birmingham game tho, also whatever karanka said to them at half time on Tuesday looks like its worked wonders attacking wise.

25 Feb 2018 13:50:17

I do not think anyone is getting ahead of themselves, they are just buoyant by a good display against a team in a similar position in the league to ourselves.

It is all very well doing well against the likes of Wolves but if we can not follow it up against teams like Qpr then it is one step forward, and one step back.

25 Feb 2018 15:17:48
Robertson was the King, if you don't think anyone is getting ahead of themselves then take a look at the first post on the "other posts" page!😂

25 Feb 2018 17:03:51
Why not go for winning every game, including the play off final? We can all dream. .😂

25 Feb 2018 19:05:31
Unlikely, however you only have to see what Keano done at Sunderland.

26 Feb 2018 11:58:10
Our initial target should be to finish above Dirty Leeds who are still deluding themselves that they will reach the playoffs.
If we put Direby away too then the wheels will come off their bus and drop out the play offs!
Job done then anything else is a bonus?

24 Feb 2018 19:43:04
Wait for a goal & then 5 come along. Chuffed to bits, especially against cheeky chappie Holloway.(9 over two games. whoops ha ha)

Agree7 Disagree0

24 Feb 2018 18:19:40
Good win 🙌made better by the fact it's a team managed by that 🤡Holloway who always has a bad word to say about us. Little bit of a mini revival thank the Lord we stopped the rot. To get to 60 points is not too far fetched and would be a gud finish to wat has been a dross season again. Well done boys, 👏pleased for cashy and Benny boy and if fat lad Tomlin keeps popping with the goals then he can be as fat as he likes I won't give a hoot

Agree12 Disagree0

24 Feb 2018 19:28:53
Holloway is not a football manager, more of a bookie's runner spiv. No idea what he's doing, blagged it all the time. Any team with him i/c is doomed. Still glad we beat them though!

25 Feb 2018 11:42:51
Great win and some great eye catching goals as well.I've got to respectfully take issue with you Clough over your Holloway comments though! Didn't he say Forest fans were a "class act" when we applauded his play off winning Blackpool team at the City Ground when they d deservedly beat us? Of course,he is as mad as a box of frogs but great fun and like his team's usually very entertaining!

24 Feb 2018 14:34:54
That's a small looking line up we've put out. I would imagine QPR will be chucking plenty of crosses into our penalty area for Smith who is very good in the air. I'd imagine they'll target Osborn in particular.

Agree2 Disagree3

24 Feb 2018 16:33:03
Seem to be doing alright anyway mate!!!

24 Feb 2018 16:58:22
As I said the other day, if we played football like we did in the second half it wouldn’t be long before we smashed some teams.

Let them build it from here, but it’s looking pretty good to me

24 Feb 2018 20:32:46
Lesson in life the whole is better than the sum of the individual parts and that gets results.
Karanka has now got a team playing rather than playing individuals who on paper are better?
Clougie did the same!
Onward and upward.

23 Feb 2018 14:06:58
Anyone know why Brit is benched? is it another injury?

Agree0 Disagree1

23 Feb 2018 14:37:07
No nas according to pullis his form has dropped off so he sayes that he must try different options so far with results

23 Feb 2018 15:40:43
Pullis is like lots of other managers ,if a player isn,t running his b------,s off he dosen,t pick him .
It dosen,t seem to matter that the player given a chance 9/out 10 times will score .
Sir BC said scoring is the hardest job in football ,but nowdays it looks like they prefer robots ,be no place for Jimmy Greaves in these managers teams ,Jimmy said when asked to run more "my job is to score !

{Ed001's Note - Johan Cruyff always said players should run less and instead use their head to make the right runs. I think I would take his thinking over Pulis every time!}

23 Feb 2018 18:03:36
Pulis thinks he got Saido Berahino again and cannot cope with a goal scoring number 9 as he might get blamed for playing exciting attacking football?

23 Feb 2018 18:32:52

Cruyff was a absolutely brilliant player, and the statement you mentioned is bang on, but in your opinion what do you think to the way he treated Lineka while they were at Barcelona.

{Ed001's Note - to be honest I don't really know anything about that. I am busy researching him for an article I am writing but not read anything about that. It was before my time to really remember it. So thank you for making me feel young... well younger anyway.}

23 Feb 2018 19:17:34
No problem, glad i managed to make you feel younger.

Lineka joined Barcelona, i'm not sure if Cruyff was already the manager, or he joined them while Lineka was already there. Cruyff did notbrate Lineka as a striker so played him on the wing.

Lineka worked hard, and did a lot of running but wa infective.

{Ed001's Note - Cruyff would not have signed someone he didn't rate and he had full control when he managed there on transfers. He was very much a 'do it my way or don't do it at all' type of guy. Seems odd though as he would, on the face of it, be a good fit for the way Cruyff thought about football. I will have to see if anything comes up about that in my research. Cruyff was a very spiky character that is for sure, but defo a genius about football.}

23 Feb 2018 19:43:19
ffs lineker

{Ed001's Note - does it matter? You know who he meant after all.}

23 Feb 2018 19:54:23

When you have completed your research will you be putting a link on here?

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, it will go up on all the sites as a Legends of the Game article.}

23 Feb 2018 20:34:06

I thought his forename was Gary. 😁

23 Feb 2018 21:27:47
Of course it matters

24 Feb 2018 22:26:32
Cruyff fan then Mr Ed , Def some good points there though would anybody swap karanka for the return of the Britt ? Don't think I would myself seeing the positives beginning to unfold now . Long may it continue coyr

24 Feb 2018 22:38:03
Britts getting splinters removed from his ass , happened to reid , cohen and fryatt to name BUTT a few . No wonder commentators always say when they come on as subs that they hate the woodwork . hmmm

24 Feb 2018 23:04:58
lol can't believe that one got posted they're all flying in today haha

25 Feb 2018 07:50:53
If we are being perdantic Oakham, it’s Lineker (with a big L)

25 Feb 2018 12:06:48
Hey Ed seeing you are flying for royal mail today , can i change my name ?

{Ed033's Note - go ahead register a new name

25 Feb 2018 13:51:53
I think you'll find it's Pedantic not Perdantic F A Wazz

23 Feb 2018 11:04:18
Should be easy win tomorrow against Holloway's men I mean if the bread man and his team of rejects beat them 4-0 should be 7-0 with the ☝️And new players.

Agree1 Disagree20

23 Feb 2018 12:33:30
Why do you post rubbish like that Jay?
What’s the point?

23 Feb 2018 13:31:10
Long hard winters in Skegness addle the brain and produce gibberish!
Still grieving over the loss of his love child Warbo.

23 Feb 2018 14:11:02
Because his bromance with Warburton has ended and he can't pick up Spanish quick enough to entertain Krankie.

20 Feb 2018 07:27:44
It would appear Vaughan and McKay are not part of the new managers plans. Shame really both skilful footballers.

Agree1 Disagree11

20 Feb 2018 08:56:10
Vaughan is injured? McKay has had lots of chances but is inconsistent. If he doesn't play we only have Lolley with pace at the moment.

20 Feb 2018 19:36:38
McKay is on bench tonight.

19 Feb 2018 22:08:23
God help us if we ever end up in league one.
If Rochdale and Wigan are anything to go by, it wouldn't be a foregone conclusion that we would bounce straight back.
It makes survival this season even more crucial.

Agree6 Disagree0

20 Feb 2018 00:48:05
Wigan are going up with Blackburn. Rochdale will probably get relegated.

Question is why didn't we sign Will Grigg when we had the chance?

20 Feb 2018 15:06:03
Will grigg to light the forest fire again 🔥 🔥 🔥

18 Feb 2018 13:12:54
I know its not fashionable at the moment, but the only answer to getting goals is TWO UP FRONT!

We can't expect any loan striker with poor service to score goals.

Would like to know what Murphy, Vellios and Brereton think. I wonder if AK has thought of asking them.

C'mon AK, fortune is only allied to the brave, try this against Reading, they won't be expecting it.

Agree14 Disagree5

18 Feb 2018 13:57:04
Totally agree humourist. Won't happen though.

18 Feb 2018 15:31:10
We are only fans what do we know about football .
Looks like 2 up front is our current and last managers plan C .
In most businesses the customer is always right but the mugs like us go whatever fare is on offer gets these so called managers thinking how clever they are ,till they get the sack!

18 Feb 2018 15:34:42
It will happen when all players are fit and we have a defence and midfield that can defend together.

19 Feb 2018 09:18:24
In the modern game, you don't just hire a manager, you hire his ethos. Every modern manager has a way he thinks football is played successfully and they very rarely divert from that. We just need to hope we stay in the division and AK can properly implement what he's trying to do over the summer.

20 Feb 2018 13:01:49
Have a read about his time at Boro,seems there were lots of falling outs with the Board ,players and fans ,lots of boring stuff played ,yes he eventually got them promoted but it soon fell apart.
Seems similar to when Caldwood was at Forest and that wasn,t a good era .
Did the Greeks do their homework on him?

23 Feb 2018 11:04:48
I think he was unlucky at Boro they were struggling to adapt to the premier league, like most championship sides will do. When he left I think boro only picked up 4 more points from rest of the season, so him leaving sealed there fate.

He is good at getting his teams consistent, which is the first thing we need at Forest, give him time to get the team balanced and consistent then hopefully play some good football as there confidence grows.

A draw at QPR and a win vs brum, will do fine.

16 Feb 2018 20:52:28
Carayol is now complaining he was not given a fair chance with Forest.

If he was not training hard enough how did he expect to to start games, coming off the bench to score a long range effort then doing nothing else is not the way to start games.

Agree14 Disagree1

16 Feb 2018 21:36:15
McCarthy gets a tune out of all our cast offs maybe he's got a point?

17 Feb 2018 07:07:13
Perhaps he should have not been injured so much.

17 Feb 2018 09:39:47
Musthavea chip on his shoulder.😐

17 Feb 2018 13:29:07
Mustaphanotherclubnextseason has been the archetype journeyman footballer all his career. We should never have signed him in the first place! Good riddance.

Lolley is a solid signing who will give us good service.

17 Feb 2018 15:29:15
Cheers Eric!!!😠😠😠
