For me once again the manager hugely responsible for this result in his team selection, Silva and carvallho together against a physical strong championship team, I said pre season if we played them together championship teams would run straight through us, and that's what happened 1st half, Silva neat and tidy nothing more, carvallho for me, a little boy lost, cash scored a great goal, but he owed us that for pulling out of a tackle, to hand them possession for their 2nd, all very familiar, we lose Dawson and start shipping goals and losing games, very disappointing,

Yes this happened last season when Dawson was injured thank good ness we have Samba. If we don’t move higher in the table ie top 4 it will be harder to attract a good striker in January if that’s what we need. Psychology is important . Watson was slated last season now or at least was a hero - what changed! Carvalho is bereft of confidence? Perhaps a time in the reserves would help? Lolley is not playing like he can either. So the manager does not drop them after one gain as that would psychologically be bad . Vis a vis Bostock who had a great game in the cup against Derby but then apparently a bad game against Wigan. I think I would have chosen him last night rather than Carvalho. However Yates I think played well. Dilemmas for SL but a win against Reading is important to move up the league but psychologically a priority for the players.

2.) 24 Oct 2019 10:07:25
So frustrating that if we had won last night and sunday we would have been 2 points clear at the top. If we want to play with the big boys we have got to control games. Too many times this season we've been on the back foot the whole match and nicked a point or a win. If our luck has run out we need to grow some balls and start taking games to teams.

3.) 24 Oct 2019 21:51:04
Lamouchi has got it right for the most part with his team selection and the use of subs, think he got it wrong at Wigan and I'd assume he knows that, last night my only concern was seeing Silva and carvalho in the team together as my opinion has always been that they can't play together and it leaves Watson exposed and having to do the job of sow aswell and his legs won't take that, Yates has to come in to give us the legs we need in midfield while sow is out, but to be fair to Lamouchi Yates has been out for a few months and maybe he wants to bring him along slowly to avoid further injury although we have a huge squad some players aren't allowed to be picked so Lamouchi put put a more attacking side out on paper and if your honest what side can any of put out from the squad at the moment that will improve us?
Samba, grabban, cash, Watson and worrall are fixtures and pick themselves and we know although not playing well lolley will play the rest is a lottery until sow semedo and dawson are fit again even jenkinson gives us another option of playing cash on the wing, all a bit unfortunate with the injuries.

See we've loaned gomis to that lot across the river said it's forest' holding out an olive branch ' I wouldn't give them anything, any apologising should be or 'olive branches' should be held out by that plank hardy for shooting off his big mouth and insulting forest in the 1st place, I firmly hope they go down, their fans have no respect for us anyway.

Stevie f

1.) 30 Jan 2019 21:26:33
Yes Stevie but we are showing we have class by holding out an olive branch,bit different to holding your todger?😁

2.) 30 Jan 2019 22:13:15
I don't know about an olive branch,but I think there's a lot of stick coming Hardys way.

3.) 30 Jan 2019 22:17:02

4.) 30 Jan 2019 22:56:42

03 Oct 2018 23:27:24
First of all millwall were well worth their point our keeper had an absolute stinker, and very few come out with any credit nobody else said anything but I thought hef had a shocker, the manager went all defensive despite the fact we were 2up i'm going to say no more about carvallhio nice free kick but spent most of the night giving the ball away, grabban was a total passenger lolly the only real bright spark thought we might improve but looks like I could be wrong poor night all in.

Stevie f

1.) 04 Oct 2018 01:27:48
I wish the boss would start with Dawson and Murphy against physical sides. It looks obvious to me but not to the boss for some reason.

I can't help feeling like the people on here who reckon this system doesn't suit Grabban were right. He has still only scored a couple of goals in the league apart from penalties. Surely the boss can work out how to get more out of him?

Finally, for a defensive approach we are conceding too many STILL!

This team has promise but it feels like something is still missing. With these players how can we be on the back foot against Millwall?

2.) 04 Oct 2018 09:23:38
Grabban is a goalpoacher,nothing else to his game,great when you play two up,but looks lost alone.
The defence looked poor all night and got a let off early when they hit the bar,doesn't help when they know the goalie will stay rooted to his line all the time and not take charge of high balls.
Heff had a very poor game getting beat numerous times in the air and we still don't look like scoring from corners.
We didn't deserve all three points,but after calvahalo goal that should have been it,don't think karanka covered himself in glory with the final two subs,sitting back and defending was asking for trouble with our fragile defence and dodgy goalie

3.) 04 Oct 2018 10:52:39
Ff79 they also had a good goal disallowed. Pants is a liability. Flat footed, never comes for crosses and inspires no confidence in those around him. As for his distribution??? Captain calamity. Simply a baffoon.
This was a game for Murphy with A another playing tight off him. Grabban offers nothing in this one up role. Dias and Carv are like boys playing for their school. Wonder about with no idea how to move to shape things and are woeful in posession. Why the defence was so poor lastnight? Msybe we were too deep and invited pressure from all angles. Every cross they put in equalled panic stations. can't remember their keeper having anything to deal with. AK needs to stop showing blind loyalty to certain players, assess the opposition and adapt. If thst means more physicality than Fox then it needs doing. Geddy is back to his inconsitent best too. Lastnight was such a disappointment. Not the result the manner in which we went about it. Totally outgunnsd by a poor Millwall side. Step up AK

4.) 04 Oct 2018 11:26:55
Ff I thought heff should have closed down quicker for Blackburn’s 2nd on Saturday too

5.) 04 Oct 2018 11:27:24
To be fair Rutland other than 70 mins in the WBA game we've played badly all season at home in championship,been very lucky at times,that luck will run out I'm afraid.

6.) 04 Oct 2018 20:44:47
Absolutely ff. 70 mins against WBA is it as far as the league is concerned.
The football under Karanka is boring as hell and although the style is defensive the defence is awful. We still concede far too many.
Hefele is slower than a cart horse and Fox never wins a header from a cross.

We have scraped last min draws at Wigan Blackburn and at home to Brum so last night was “own medicine”, reality is we deserved to lose last night.

7.) 04 Oct 2018 21:07:23
Got to agree north Notts can't see us getting enough wins to be up there,we seem to keep grabbing a couple of goals from nowhere somehow,never create many clear cut chances then make individual errors at the back,to me we played with 8 men last night,grabban and calvahalo were non existent and we didn't have a goalkeeper.
You can't carry three players and get away with it.
Most hilarious comment I heard last night was in the car on the way home,Steve Hodge on the radio blaming the fans for shouting at pants to throw it quickly,took his time as usual and then panicked 🤣🤣🤣🤣



28 Aug 2018 22:39:59
Think it's really disappointing how all the optimism and feel good factor around the club seems to be rapidly evaporating, have been on the fence with regard to AK, but there doesn't seem to be any clear plan with team selection, etc we've had a huge turnover of players since he came in, but the same old failings are still apparent, the slow starts the concession of early goals, the aerial weakness in our own box, we seem stuck with the same rigid tactics, and all the chopping and changing of personnel, which is reminiscent of the montanier reign, yes it's early, but to me the signs are not positive, is there anyone that can sort this club out? We seem jinxed,

Stevie f

1.) 29 Aug 2018 08:38:24
Agreed stevie are we any further forward then last year have we made progress ?i don't think so apart from 21000 season cards that is tonight will be the test against newcastle to see how far if any we have become

2.) 29 Aug 2018 09:36:12
The only difference is we haven’t lost any games. Might not have played well but it’s there in black and white. I seem to remember under Billy Davies time we had a couple of seasons when we failed to win in our first few games but made the play offs. The West Brom game highlights what the potential is, we’ve just got to work harder

3.) 29 Aug 2018 12:10:30
Most of the changes have been injuries or to bring in on-form players like Cash/Soudani. The exception was in the cup to give game time and when we brought in the new full backs (which most of the fans were calling for).

4.) 29 Aug 2018 13:30:38
What’s what the fans are calling for got to do with anything? Karanka is solely responsible for what’s turned out on match days not the paying customers, Osborn, Murphy lolley cash carvallhio Dias have all been ‘rotated ‘in a league season that’s only 5 games old little wonder that the ‘gelling ‘ is taking a little longer than hoped and if any of the optimists out there have seen any progression so far i’d really like to borrow your rose tinted glasses

5.) 29 Aug 2018 13:59:25
Can't argue with that Stevie,but for saying it you have officially become a foremoaner.

6.) 29 Aug 2018 14:25:26
They haven't been rotated. Murphy is second choice striker and Grabban is injured. Carvalho was off form and dropped. Soudani, Lolley and Cash were on form (all came on and scored) so they replaced players who were off form. If the manager didn't reward on form players the squad would be demoralised.

Some people just love a good moan. If anything is the managers fault it is that the work on the training ground is clearly not getting the players to perform.

7.) 29 Aug 2018 14:47:54
The last part of your post is the worrying bit as that's the job he's paid to do,if he can't translate trainng practice to a match then he's not getting across to the players what he wants,that's poor management

8.) 29 Aug 2018 14:58:06
1st of all you don know whether I like a good Moan or not what you’re telling me is players weren’t ‘rotated they were replaced or dropped what’s the difference?you sound like the politician who doesn’t want another referendum but a’people’s vote instead! and in the end everything is the managers responsibility whether we or he likes it or not

9.) 29 Aug 2018 15:42:19

14 Aug 2018 22:18:53
Can someone remind me are benfica wanting 20 mill for goncalves at the end of his loan?

Stevie f

1.) 14 Aug 2018 23:53:25
none of the Portuguese lads have done anything yet to suggest they are worth millions, people keep suggesting that its the same as wolves but its not they signed neves who was captain of porto at 18, I hadn't heard of Carvalho or goncalves before, but there's still time just hope they come good, more frustrated in dias as I thought he'd start well.

2.) 15 Aug 2018 08:46:49
Sincerely hope the 3 Portuguese don’t turn out like the 3 Italians platt bought in, cost the club a fortune and disappeared without trace

3.) 15 Aug 2018 13:33:40
Can't believe how negative some people are here. Have you actually watched us play? Firstly,the Goncalves deal is £15m structured over 3 years if we want him permanently. He has looked off the pace but give him a chance! Took a while for even Ronaldo to settle but he turned out alright!
As for the other two, they were great against WBA, especially Dias. Their touch and work-rate were excellent and clearly they have quality we've been lacking. Just because they haven't scored yet no need to get on their backs after a couple of games!

4.) 15 Aug 2018 13:41:23
I’m with nick on that one. Just because they don’t score or assist doesn’t mean they’re not good players. All of the Portuguese lads have very good work rates and you need that in this league so give them one to find their feet a bit more and the goals will come.
But until then at least get behind them and not slag them off

5.) 15 Aug 2018 14:29:03
Forest nick yes mate been to every game and will be at wigan Saturday how about you ? And another thing I haven’t actually criticised them just asked about the how about getting down off your ‘loyal fan ‘ high horse?

6.) 15 Aug 2018 22:25:56
Stevie, I heard 20 million mentioned and think we paid 13 million for carvalho. I’m impressed with their work rate to date. Lile I said before let’s wait until we get to the cold days / nights before we either rejoice or lament.

7.) 15 Aug 2018 23:31:10
yes of course there's time and i'm sure all forest fans will give them the time, my point was I thought dias would hit the ground running as he did have a very good pre season but 60 mins against wba is not a great start, i see positives in this forest team and 1 is a battling never say die attitude that we didn't have last year.

22 Feb 2020 21:15:29
What really annoyed me about the disallowed goal was the fact the assistant ref took til after we had celebrated for about a minute, and we're about to kick off again, before he decided the ball had moved, surely he should have flagged immediately the ball moved, does anyone on here think if it had sailed harmlessly out of play we would have got to take it again?

Stevie f

1.) 22 Feb 2020 21:47:16
Me as well stevie he should have been waving his flag as the ball was kicked, and they wonder why they get abuse?
They should know the rules and if as it was the ball was moving then flag it immediately.
Bad team of officials today but for both sides, its becoming a worrying situation that refs can't get things right.

2.) 22 Feb 2020 21:54:03
The ball definately moved mate it happened 15 yards in front of me, moving ball to a corner taker hardly an advantage though is it?

3.) 22 Feb 2020 22:06:01
I know it did we all said it but like you said what take so long?

4.) 23 Feb 2020 01:02:37
Linesman only reacted after the QPR player runs up to him complaining.
If the astute player in question hadn't seen it and reacted then I don't think it would have been disallowed.

5.) 23 Feb 2020 01:57:53
For me surely the officials had to consider the weather? But it’s the forest rollercoaster guys.

6.) 23 Feb 2020 06:23:37
Blame the ref, blame the linesman 😂 l blame the owners should have bought a quality striker and an attacking midfielder, that's all we needed but ended up with a load of cast offs. We just don't score enough, been saying it all season and that will cost us if it hasn't already.

7.) 23 Feb 2020 10:36:21
I've said all through the transfer window mate. Skeggsy aswell.

8.) 23 Feb 2020 11:02:27
Red balloons, I am not blaming the referee and assistant for our plodding performance, just the annoyance that the officials seemed to be needed to be told the laws of the game by a player,



15 Feb 2020 16:04:59
Only 2 ways to interpret Strouds performance today, he's either completely incompetent Or biased, either way he should never referee a professional league game again,

Stevie f

1.) 15 Feb 2020 16:17:18
He’s a clown and his assistants were just as spineless.

2.) 15 Feb 2020 16:23:47
He's as bent as a nine bob note Stevie, especially where Forest are concerned.
When he's announced as the official at one of our games I begin to think anything can happen.

3.) 15 Feb 2020 17:13:25
At least he chalked there "winner" off and quite rightly.
But tes poor ref who should not be in the job.



09 Feb 2020 15:34:37
Just watching the millwall game, yet again a referee bottles a blatant penalty whilst looking directly at it, at a crucial point of the game, can't help thinking had that have been a forest wall blocking a free kick like that, the ref wouldn't been able to give a pen fast enough, don't like the paranoia of this anti forest thing, but am beginning to wonder, yesterday alioski commited 4 bookable offences, but remained on the pitch, the ref bottled a blatant pen when worrall was dragged down in the box, what's going on?

Stevie f

1.) 09 Feb 2020 16:52:53
Just watched that again mate. complete stone Waller.

2.) 09 Feb 2020 17:17:45
Right under the refs nose but they had their backs to him. Considering the direction was for refs to severely punish this action, not seen a pen given yet. To be fair i thought the officials were more than adequate. The ref kept cards in pocket as long as he could and the lino's were good.

3.) 09 Feb 2020 20:11:43
Been saying for weeks that refs are biased because surely they can’t be so inconsistent week in week out an definitely we’ve had 2 refs in a row that are bottlers.

4.) 10 Feb 2020 06:19:47
I would like saturdays ref to explain why alioski wasn’t sent off. two scissor tackles is two billable offences and then add on the other 3-4 fouls he made.



18 Jan 2020 14:24:41

Hate to say it, playing brilliant.

2.) 06 Jan 2020 20:51:07
They look really good Stevie. I’ve been saying it for weeks, we are light years behind them and WBA. You need to score goals to win games. Enough said.

3.) 06 Jan 2020 21:16:41
Redfrog we know you need to score goals to win games but 1 goal will win a game simples also Leeds can't score lol ureddddssss.

4.) 06 Jan 2020 21:21:21
Light years? 😂😂😂
Arsenal will beat them and your right you have to score to win games and foralltheir possession haven't scored.
Cant think how we've got into the top six and won 12 games and Leeds have only managed 15 and played a game more?
Light years my arse 😁.

5.) 06 Jan 2020 21:23:11
Too right Skegs. that’s why Leeds are top of the league 🙄.

6.) 06 Jan 2020 21:48:27
Redfrog let me know when you decide to say anything decent about forest might have time to get in a conversation with you then since you've been on here I've not heard you say one good comment about forest or the gaffer 9 points from 9 and you still slate them nothing u really say interests me but like I said Leeds can't score in this game one of there best players gone off injured hence that's why lamouchi right by not playing all our best players concentrate on the league also as I said with any game as this arsenal one 1 goal is enough to win a game simples uredddssss.

7.) 06 Jan 2020 21:57:34
Forestforever I think your getting a little confused. Leeds are playing a near reserve side against Arsenal. Remember when we played Arsenal away in the League Cup?
And as for goals- read the Championship table if proof is needed. I’m forest through and through, but Leeds are a good side and yes, light years ahead of us.

8.) 06 Jan 2020 22:13:07
Red frog reserve side? Were they?

9.) 06 Jan 2020 22:17:19
Goals in all competitions so far this season.
WBA 50
How many of those clubs are above us? 🤔🤔
Footballs not just about scoring goals it about not conceding as well.
So 7 goals difference is light years?

10.) 06 Jan 2020 22:20:16
Does that mean we’re dark years behind? Just asking .

Ff79 yes mate I thought it looked nearly full strength, no Hernandez but I assumed he is injured, I think that game is a microcosm of how their season seemed to go last time put everything into the 1st half really high tempo, and then tired,

May the force be with you Skegg!

18.) 07 Jan 2020 08:30:19
Fawazmark2, just thought it was interesting how one of our main promotion rivals treated a similar cup tie, in an entirely different way to us, Leeds think they’re a big club, and act one, like they have every right to go to the emirates and take the game to Arsenal, we on the other hand we rightly think we’re a big club, but almost apologised for being at Stamford bridge, ‘ we have no chance. it just seemed a totally different mind set, if you don’t want to get involved in the thread that’s entirely up to you, there.

Seems almost a paranoia on here with some about proving what a loyal forest fan you are, disloyalty is seen in the most innocent of comments, this isn’t North Korea, and if I want to make a point regarding the different approach to the game of a promotion rival, then that’s what I’ll do, if you’re not interested feel free not to join in.

19.) 07 Jan 2020 10:33:55
Redfrog keep in there mate. Don't worry, people might move on from the playground bullying táctics in 2020. Fingers crossed.

All said stevie if it wasnt for var it could and would probably of been two all,

21.) 07 Jan 2020 11:37:17
Ff you saw the game I didn’t, but my point is Leeds played like they thought they could win, our head coach said before the game we had ‘ no chance’. I admit the outcome was the same, but the intent seemed so much different,

22.) 07 Jan 2020 11:38:45
Personally edd I don't get what stevie is on about with fawaz post.
All he's saying is he don't care about Leeds, I think most of us don't care about Leeds and never have.
Dont know what North Korea has to do with it.

23.) 07 Jan 2020 11:52:32
Even without the intervention of Var we were never really in the game.
The second lowest possession percentage of the weekend coupled with 2 shots resulting in 1 on target.
No doubt Chelsea had another gear if it was needed.
Leeds went to Arsenal and had a right good go.
To boss possession against a Premier league side renowned for keeping the ball and have more shots at goal and more on target is no mean feat.

24.) 07 Jan 2020 12:01:46
Exactly ed.

{Ed047's Note - 👍🏼

25.) 07 Jan 2020 12:34:32
No one said they didn't have a go fred but was it wise?
They blew up last year because of the demanding nature of their football and they've only won three of their last 7 games despite most of the possession had over 60% against WBA and still only drew.
Will they run out of steam again?

26.) 07 Jan 2020 12:45:57
Fff79 if you can’t work that post out I ain’t going to explain it for you, it’s pretty simple,

27.) 07 Jan 2020 12:51:10
Fff79 perhaps they thought they owed it to their 8000 fans who paid 30 quid a ticket, plus all other expenses on a Monday night to travel to watch them,

28.) 07 Jan 2020 13:35:27
At least I only paid a tenner for mine at arsenal, had a good day out barring the game and journey home.
Still think they might regret putting a full side out almost.

29.) 07 Jan 2020 14:04:19
Red Fred Leeds played well first half but let's be honest arsenal didn't even try first half lol as you say gears arsenal stepped up 1 gear second half and game over simples easy peasy.

30.) 07 Jan 2020 19:14:15
Fff79 you may well be right, they may well regret putting a full side out and going for it, I despise every thing about Leeds always have done, their cheating, their fans, etc, but last night I think they gave us a lesson in positive thinking,
