Can I just say, that move for our first against Fulham was one of the best I've seen a Forest side put together, and against a newly Prem-relegated side at that.
Also, how confident was Grabs finish for the second! Goalie beaten at his near post. brilliant.

I felt it was a good goal in the ground, have watched it again and again on you tube it’s a fantastic piece of football, but won’t get the credit it deserves, had it been Leeds we’d never have stopped being shown it, another thing I wish so called experts would give over with so called stats, especially possession stats, they might have had 70 plus % of the ball, but til injury time I never felt uncomfortable, and with our 20odd % of possession we could easily have had 3or 4 goals they might have had 77% possession but we had 66% of the goals the only stat that really matters.

Could not agree more stevie just got back from the match and I have to say I was only nervous for the injury time and that was only because of our history I think. We had them where we wanted them and were in control, defended as a team and samba looked solis in goal. Long may it continue.



08 Aug 2019 18:36:16
Is it just me who is disappointed (and slightly worried) that we've not brought in a striker? Let's be honest, Grabban looked clueless against WBA, not to mentioned like he CBA. You have to wonder what's gone off to have overlooked this and for us to come out with a load of mids and defenders. oh, and goalies.


1.) 08 Aug 2019 18:43:33
Probably will get a loan deal now for a striker.

2.) 08 Aug 2019 18:51:00
Maybe league 1 beckons.
Poor transfers by our trusted DoF.
What marinakis sees in him is strange?
We are the officially the Monty Python club of this league.
Forest would probably be ran better with John Cleese picking the transfers etc.

Al least most of us are in agreement for once!

Basil. You have got the job! 🀣.

Well after that little performance by Bamford, I am so glad we never seriously pursued him as a Forest player. Utter disgrace and should be banned. Credit to Bielsa, but Leeds aren't called dirty for nothing.


1.) 29 Apr 2019 14:05:14
I don't see why any side should feel obliged to kick the ball out of play, it's a ridiculous unwritten rule of 'fair play'. There's rarely 'fair play' in football with all the diving, cheating and trying to get players sent off etc. so why pretend we're being 'fair' by kicking the ball out? Ridiculous.

Only one person on the pitch can stop the game and that's the Referee. And we wonder why football has a discipline problem compared to other sports, when we're encouraging players to take the rules into their own hands? Pathetic.

Goal should have stood, Villa should've paid the price for stopping and wandering about aimlessly expecting Leeds to kick the ball out. It's one of the first 'rules' I was ever taught when playing football and the 'rule' should still be in place.

Spot on pal.

Well said wonky πŸ‘

4.) 29 Apr 2019 16:37:22
I must have missed it when the refs had their whistles taken from them - absolute joke, s@#% like this happens but we can’t stop shirt pulling, time wasting,diving etc
We all crave for consistency from the refs and the law makers are supposedly trying to help refs, then this happens-everyone relies on a player kicking it out of play?? would this have happened in a cup final or a play off game? Stuff like this and some var decisions could cause riots πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

5.) 29 Apr 2019 16:52:33
Cheers, chaps. I'm glad it's not just me.

Can you imagine the furore if there was more riding on the game? If Leeds were still in the hunt for automatic promotion? Or if Villa were still trying to seal a play-off place? Would they have still let Villa score a 'walk-though' goal? I doubt it. Then the media would've had a field day ripping Leeds apart.

Most players that go down are just looking for a rest anyway, or buying their team some time in an act of time wasting.

You're injured, so what! This is football, not the ballet. Unless your bloody heads falling off - Game on!

6.) 29 Apr 2019 20:56:33
Depends,if someones seriously injured then yes it should be kicked out if the ref is not close enough to realise,most footballers know when a player is seriously injured and do the right thing,its the play actors that cause the problems,wet sponge never made anyone better.

7.) 29 Apr 2019 21:44:19
I wonder why Mr Bielsa did not invite Forest to score after Keefe.s deliberate handball? Now that would have been genuine sportsmanship? # meaningless gesture!

8.) 30 Apr 2019 10:31:37
Well said 79.



22 Apr 2019 16:55:01
Anyone who thinks Carvalho is a waste of space needs to think again. That was a sublime performance on how to be a creative midfielder. Bravo!


1.) 22 Apr 2019 16:57:53
Agreed on that performance was it the formation or was he playing to stay or go? Great performance from the hole team.



11 Apr 2019 13:50:31
Now I know why the black hole has appeared; to suck in our final playoff hopes lol.


1.) 11 Apr 2019 17:05:02
That black hole has been there for quite a while.Almost as long as the last time we were in play offs.

2.) 11 Apr 2019 18:06:18
There's a "big black hole in our defence!!!

3.) 11 Apr 2019 19:09:57
More like an abyss

4.) 11 Apr 2019 20:50:12
A black hole is thought to be formed when a star collapses and 'dies' at the end of it's 'life'. Well Forest have two stars, has one collapsed and died? Oops.πŸ˜–

5.) 12 Apr 2019 07:55:34
Nothing can ever take our two stars. Not even a black hole!

6.) 12 Apr 2019 14:13:17
Brian Clough and Peter Taylor
Two super stars. RIP.
Left the biggest hole in the city ground
Which even the most optimistic of us
know will never be the same again.

Positives for today?

1. Hopefully that will be Cash's last game as a defender.

2. Ameobi looks like he can be a class player for us and showed some good skill.

3. Samedo looks really good, and an exciting player.

4. Muric will hopefully be more confident for the game.

5. Sow looks decent.

6. Defence was solid.

Some not so good bits:

1. Not being anywhere creative enough.

2. Grabban looks elsewhere.

3. Lolley looks out of sorts today and first game.

4. Watson is crudd.

5. Passing was atrocious for most part.

Onwards and upwards.

Not sure Ansarifard was a dud, so to speak. I think we've let a decent striker go, as in sure with a decent run in the squad he would have come good. never given a proper chance, but seemed ok when he was given a run out.

We do need a proven striker though, as I feel we are still way to short on quality in that area . and as we all know, you need goals to win games and get out of this league.

Well we all know when it comes to selling players, we will not sell for Β£6m. It'll be Β£4m max.

I can't understand why some are calling Pants; he got the third highest clean sheet stat last season, didn't he. That's nothing to mock really. But. on the other hand, he has made some right clangers and his distribution is at best inaccurate.

Agree with some that Benny is a headless chicken most games. Sure, he comes up with a worldy every so often, but nowhere consistent enough for my liking. He's a very frustrating player, in that you have a feeling he can be so much better, but it never materialises. So. I guess in saying sell, lol.

We need to try and keep:

Colback (think he'll go tho)
Dawson (if kept fit, and made capt)
Apiah (send out on loan)

I think Grabban has become lazy and obviously has a crock Achilles. so he can go.

Osborn for me doesn't offer an awful lot, except for running around loads.
Cash is not good enough.
Yates not good enough (yet?).
Watson can go.
Murphy can do one.
Pants can go.
Pele can go.

Not sure re Darikwa

I agree re especially the striker comment. I saw the pics of the squad arriving before the kick off against Blackburn. I said at the time that Grabban looks as though he's just got out of bed, and looked knackered/can't be bothered. Lo and behold - from all the comments during and after the match - he looked totally disinterested. Has he fallen out with MoN or Keano? Either way. he was not very good
