What a load of rubbish tonight.

Tactics and selection the team wrong.
Osborn is not a left back.
Watson is slow again.
Gonclaves not up to it.
Soudani no good a leading the line.

Should have selected Yocob to play instead of Watson.

Tactic of playing out of the back and letting teams press us high up the pitch is a massive mistake. Everyone watching this will do the same for the rest of the season. You can bet Sheffield United and Stoke will be doing it.

This is not promotion form at all. Would not be surprised to see more signings in January but I think it is not so much the players as tactics that is the problem.

You could give ak another 10 players and he wouldn't know what to do with them. just look at cloughie - got no cash his players on paper not as good as ours, but they showed more skill on the ball, more movement passing, were better and they wanted it more.

2.) 31 Oct 2018 09:14:47
A better manager would put out his strongest team put the game to bed and the make changes. The seasoned pro's will be livid as they want to go to wembley and get silverware. To be left out and see this pathetic effort after getting past newcastle and stoke will hurt. Bare in mind this was an away fixture against a lowly club where our so called style fits better away from home, why make the changes. Gives him an excuse i reckon.

3.) 31 Oct 2018 09:18:38
I think we need to stop comparing every manager we have to Cloughie. That was 40 years ago when he took over and, let's face it, there will never another manager that comes close to him. Playing 2 defensive minded midfielders and 2 Portuguese players who aren't used to being closed down so quickly was always a bad idea.

4.) 01 Nov 2018 00:03:42
Rutland the seasoned pros are the ones that let us down

5.) 01 Nov 2018 09:34:42
If the manager had put out the same team after Saturday's high tempo game they would have been goosed for Saturday!

Those that came in and did not perform cannot now complain when they have to wait for another game. It's called squad management!

Yacoub will now get his chance and this will stiffen up the midfield for the front 4 to be more direct!

Nixon reckons forest are in for Zaha on loan. Cannot see it myself and I would rather we spent the salary on keeping Lansbury.


1.) 10 Aug 2014 09:45:16
who exactly is this Nixon please?

{Ed034's Note - he is a football reporter for one of the red topped newspapers

2.) He seems fairly clued up but bit of a know all and can be arsey if you don't agree with every thing he has to say.

{Ed034's Note - as do I. The guy has blocked me

3.) Maybe we are interested but so are about 6 Premiership teams, both Newcastle & Saints have made approaches for him.

4.) Blocked me too, for disagreeing with him on the Lansbury saga.

5.) Blocked me for saying he was anti #NFFC. Wasn't abusive in anyway shape or form. Any gossip on potential signings Ed?

{Ed034's Note - he has mentioned we are interested in zaha but so are two prem sides

6.) Ed, any idea if arsenal have a sell on agreement in the Lansbury contract which will see us net even less if he goes?

{Ed034's Note - I believe it do be around 15%

7.) Stay or go? What do you think ED?

{Ed034's Note - I think he'll go

I would like to see CH make some serious changes on Tues with a new formation and different players.

I would go with a 3-5-2 formation. With the wing backs creating the width.

BK - Samba
Back 3 - Worrall, Dawson, McKenna (or Mbe Soh)
Wingbacks - Christie and Riberio
Midfield - Yates, Sow, Cafu
Forwards - Taylor Mighton

If he sticks with 4-2-3-1
Then different players needs to come in

Jenkinson Worrall McKenna Ioannou
Yates Sow
Mighton Cafu Ameobi

Badly missing Grabban as the striker as well.


1.) 12 Dec 2020 18:25:37
Houghton 'changes'hahaha he is too stubborn and won't change anything he has to go before we go down. ĺ.

2.) 12 Dec 2020 18:30:10
Round and round we go same old same old. I just give up believing i really do. Nothing is going to change. We all know that. Keep your heads up reds. let's see what santa brings in the January window. Until then live with it sadly. Enjoy life, and stay healthy 👍👍👍😪.

3.) 12 Dec 2020 19:09:31
Since march i thought I'd miss heard boris when he said Nottingham was knockdown. Never mind eh.



12 Dec 2020 16:55:41
Why are we playing the same system and same players week after week. It is not working.

Figs at fault again for two goals. Drop him and play someone else - anyone else! Don't pick him.

Lolley is out of form. Don't pick him.
Arter is not the player he was. Don't pick him

Utter rubbish again today. I don't think I have ever been so down about a Forest team and I have been supporting them since 1976.

This has to change on Tuesday against Shef Weds.




31 Oct 2020 16:20:35
60mins in and we are yet to have a shot.

Absolute rubbish as usual.

Can't pass and no running off the ball.

Playing for a 0-0 or if we are lucky grab a win.

No chance this team challenging for promotion. Just totally flat.




08 Oct 2020 17:54:29
Just watched the press conference with CH on You Tube.

So nice to have a manager who gets it!

Able to answer the questions clearly and concisely as well.

SL was a nice man but CH much more suited to the Championship and us.

Think he will bring in one or two players and a couple will leave but the squad will largely be as it is.

I would expect an improved performance in future games but we cannot expect miracles given the amount of new players and now a new manager. He needs to be given the full two years though.



1.) 08 Oct 2020 19:38:31
I noticed when he was asked one question he emphasised the word manager.

He gave proper thought to each question before answering.

He also had a wry smile when asked what he thought about the players after his first training session.

The interview on a whole though went how i thought it would.

He did come across well.

2.) 08 Oct 2020 20:47:34
Yes I saw it too. I like that he referred to himself as manager.



29 Sep 2020 19:00:28
So the final squad is shaping up now with some exits on the horizon.

GK - Brice, Smith, Diallo. No changes expected.

RB - Christie, Gabriel. Exits - Darikwa / Jenkinson?

LB - Blackett, Ioannou. Exits - Riberio?

CB - Worrall, McKenna, SoHo's, Dawson. Exits- Figuiredo and Benaloune?

Midfield - Colback, Sow, Bachirou, Yates, Arter. Exits - Silva

Wingers / CAM - Lolley, Ameobi, Mighton, freeman. Exits - Carvalho, Adomah?

Stikers - Grabban, Taylor, Da Costa, Guerro

add in a new winger and maybe another CAM then you have a much better squad than last year but whether SL can make a promotion winning team is the question?


1.) 29 Sep 2020 21:13:04
No is the answer!

2.) 29 Sep 2020 21:19:24
Much better? LOL🤣🤣🤣
Beneloun and jenkinson won't be going anywhere ong with bong and cliugh on their wages they'll stick around.

3.) 29 Sep 2020 21:48:38
Asking a whole new back four and at least three midfielders to gel into a promotion team is not going to happen.
Best we can hope for is mid table with that squad its big its new but it lacks flair even on paper.

4.) 30 Sep 2020 08:12:17
79, these are professional footballers who I believe some pride in their performance and like all of us don’t like failure . I hope we see a different performance on Saturday . It won’t be what ideally we wish to see - yet. To complete for 90 minutes, have multiple shots on goal, but maybe loose 2-3 against a good side, to me would be a plus . Although SL is in a mess I hope also he can create the above . He has gone from hero to zero in 6 months let’s give him a tad longer.

Let them both go. No goals in Geurero and better options at LB.

Would be better than the three RB's we have in the squad. If we can sell or loan out two of them that would be good.

PSG have put on twitter that he has signed for NFFC!

We need to get rid of at least one centre back now that Hefele and Benalounane are fit. But if he does then selling Robinson looks foolish unless we have lined up a good LB.

Just a few more to depart then before Mondays deadline or would Forest consider just paying up the rest of their contracts to get them out of the club? I would do the latter as you are going to be paying them anyhow.

Why on earth has he picked figs? full of mistakes and I bet he makes at least one day and that might cost us the game.

Agree that this is not down to managers it is down to the players.

But why keep picking Figueredo? His mistake led to the goal again. He makes one or two mistakes per game that are costly. CH needs to stop picking him.

Forest need to get rid of an absolute load of dross and keep CH to overhaul the change in the next two or three transfer windows.

Same old story - small decisions in the run up to the goal cost the corner. Then a poor red card in my opinion - don't think he caught the player and he got the ball first.

But Forest are still poor. Lack ideas, lack pace, lack any passing ability. Despite all the additions, i just think we look apathetic and sluggish.

No points tonight. Do well to contain this to a 1-0 loss.

CH got a real job on here.

about time. he should have gone in the summer and let a new coach build the squad.

a coach / manager with experience of the championship has to be appointed to enable them to hit the ground running.

I expect something to break within 24 hrs.

Thinks he is more of box to box midfielder with plenty of energy. More like an alternative to Sow.
