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

2.) 30 Jan 2019 22:13:15

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

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.

Got a feeling the game against the shaggers could be more tasty than ever, if they win tomorrow they're bang in the playoff picture,

Stevie f

1.) 07 Mar 2020 21:22:03
We need to get some fight in the team an form quick or we can forget about playoffs for ourselves.

2.) 08 Mar 2020 09:51:35
The shaggers will make the playoffs I reckon. They have some very good players who are now starting to click as a unit . Hope I’ve just jinxed them 😁.

3.) 08 Mar 2020 10:25:21
2star they’re a major threat to the top 6 mate, in my opinion, said it a month ago and got laughed at on here, as soon as Rooney turned up he made a massive difference, he’s still way above this level, hope they get the deduction they deserve for cheating ffp,

4.) 08 Mar 2020 11:47:07
There will be no deduction mate.

5.) 08 Mar 2020 12:46:02
They won't get to the playoffs their run in is too hard to put a run of wins together with only 10 games to go.
Fulham have the most difficult fixtures to deal with on paper.

6.) 08 Mar 2020 13:24:19
Fff79 I sincerely hope you’re right,



07 Mar 2020 14:20:37
I think it's pretty clear from reading the comments on this board that lamouchi' s ' style ' of football, at home will only be tolerated when we win,! I must say though it's easy to forget this is an entertainment business, people turn out in good numbers, and pay good money to be entertained, committed fans will accept any performance for the win, the not quite so committed, who the club are hoping to attract and grow the club into the new 38000 stadium will want a bit more to keep them coming, and will be lost to the club unless things improve, as I said before, there is no building for next year in this league, you miss out, your best players are cherry picked by the prem clubs, the manager carries the can, and the whole process starts again from scratch,

Stevie f

1.) 07 Mar 2020 15:00:11
Stevie, agree with that, cracking post. The fans will become annoyed by the home games if we don’t win becomes it’s so hard to watch . I don’t think Mr M will risk losing the 7k he’s added to the gate. Not easy to predict what will happen next.

2.) 07 Mar 2020 15:27:56
If the current managers contract is not renewed would you want Daniel Farke if Norwich got rid Steve f, Norwich did show patience with him, which our owner does not have a lot of but he would get us to be entertained.

3.) 07 Mar 2020 16:07:47
I didn’t say I wanted rid merely outlined what often happens,

4.) 07 Mar 2020 16:55:39
Ipswich fans wanted rid of Mick McCarthy and look what happened to them let SL have more time then judge.

5.) 07 Mar 2020 17:41:29
I think most forest fans love what Sabri as done with this team who would of thought we’d be in top 6 at start of season, it’s the home form that’s worrying an sabris failure to learn from it, we’ve just got to be more attacking whilst stopping these bloody crosses coming in.

6.) 07 Mar 2020 18:04:05
I don’t either Stevie it’s big Mak I’m worried about!

7.) 07 Mar 2020 18:05:29
I asked for your opinion if certain things were to happen Steve f, not saying you said you wanted him gone, never mind.

8.) 07 Mar 2020 18:18:46
Cam red sorry mate misunderstood your post, I think someone with farkes style would mean a massive over haul of the playing staff, the slick passing game that Norwich play would be beyond most of the players who would remain at the club, would be great to watch though.



04 Mar 2020 13:03:51
Stevesuttonwe just to clarify things for you, last week I posted about the desperate need to take the chance this season to go up, people were talking about 'building 'for next season, I merely suggested the building would be more difficult because you would probably lose 2, or 3, or maybe even 4 of your best players, and would likely be starting from scratch, having obviously missed all this you have come on in an attempt to try to be clever and had a cheap dig, hope you feel better for that, but unfortunately you took my point out of context,

Stevie f

1.) 04 Mar 2020 17:03:46
I don't need to try to be clever, mate, it just happens 😁.

2.) 04 Mar 2020 18:13:15
Must have missed those posts mate😊.

3.) 04 Mar 2020 19:56:30
Stevesuttonswe one thing we agree on were both fight fans mate, was you surprised at wilder triggering the re match clause,?

4.) 05 Mar 2020 00:36:46
Not too surprised, mate. Think he's too proud not to. He's always got a puncher's chance but hopefully Fury will just outclass him again.

Really enjoying the UK dominance among the heavyweights 💪.

5.) 05 Mar 2020 08:46:16
Think it’s only the dollar signs whirling around his head, can’t imagine he fancies another beating like that, the natural figh everyone is looking at is obviously fury v Joshua but boxing politics being what they are probably won’t happen for a while, if and when it does hope it’s at Wembley, and not Saudi Arabia or somewhere, be a massive occasion, remember the old Wembley arena, minter, hagler etc back in the day some great old fights, real big fight atmosphere,

6.) 05 Mar 2020 13:55:01
Yeah would be great to have Fury-AJ in the UK, but I'd imagine if some Sheikh offers twelvty-billion dollars to stage it in Saudi Arabia then it'll be in Saudi. I think Wilder v AJ is a real 50/ 50 fight but also think that AJ stands a better chance of beating Fury than Wilder - Styles make fights and all that.

Just hope Wilder doesn't land that lucky punch and put a big dent in the plan.

Wilder's excuses, Post rematch, have been hilarious, but I suppose a fighter has to believe something wasn't right to give him the confidence and belief that he can win the next one. I don't think Wilder is trying to fool us with his excuses, i think it's more likely he's trying to fool himself. Otherwise he'd be walking into the third fight thinking the same as us i. e. "He's going to get another whooping". Let's hope he does :)

7.) 05 Mar 2020 16:38:03
Got a horrible feeling wilder could knock aj out mate depending on how much the fury beating took out of him, sometimes fights like that knock the desire, both of them could be a bit gun shy after recent experiences!

8.) 05 Mar 2020 18:49:51
Glad to see you two have kissed and made up, the only fight I want to see is fury vs Joshua but think fury will win that very easily and the Joshua camp know that.

9.) 05 Mar 2020 19:26:10
Fff79 in their early days I always thought Joshua was going to be the real deal and fury was very rough around the edges, but I was certainly wrong about fury, would be a great occasion if happens to come off, as for my little spat with sswe you know as I always say it’s never personal with me, I give it, and expect to take it, never take offence, and never mean to give any,

10.) 05 Mar 2020 20:43:56
Joshua won't last three rounds against fury and his camp will keep it from happening as long as they can and then just hope that fury is too old, the money makers in boxing make more money at the moment keeping them apart.

We will have to meet up for a pint stevie before or after a game, be nice to talk about the old days growing up in Clifton.

11.) 05 Mar 2020 21:17:03

I would like to know how he went from being in charge of a Championship game and got three match defining decisions wrong, then off that a decision was made that he was good enough to be in charge of a Premier league game.

2.) 29 Feb 2020 14:08:24
If Stroud had VAR he's still make all the wrong decisions.

3.) 29 Feb 2020 14:35:23
So the dirty win 4 nil nine points behind without breaking sweat they are pulling away from us at the right time for them we have to keep winning and hope they start dropping points can still be done coyr!

4.) 29 Feb 2020 15:18:45
It would be outstanding if we could get a top two position but even if we only make the play offs that would be a successfull season for the squad.
