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.

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
Did someone mention maggots?

4.) 30 Jan 2019 22:56:42
Hardy needs to go back to school and realise that maggots turn into flies,instead of trying to get a maggot out of his flies.🙄🙄

5.) 30 Jan 2019 23:09:41
We the season of goodwill has certainly ended on this forum?
Come On You Pies!🤣🐬

6.) 30 Jan 2019 23:43:52
I'm glad to see Mrs hardy saying he needs to handle himself better and is hugely disappointed on the whole 🤔

Oh I just love this banter!



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.



21 May 2018 21:49:00
Hi everyone long time reader 1st time poster, am interested that a lot of people on here seem to be against the possible signing of Dawson maybe they've not noticed we can't defend high balls, the fact he's an ex player is surely irrelevant if he can do the job.

Stevie f

1.) 22 May 2018 06:36:05
Agree he would add some height to defend set peices but having watched him a few times this season for Hull, my reservation is that he is a little slow nowadays and he struggles to defend against quick attacking players.

2.) 22 May 2018 08:51:10
If he comes on a free and wages are low he would be a good purchase. AK can motivate him much better than Adkins,and we have Figgy and Worrall with pace.

3.) 22 May 2018 08:59:00
Karanka wants experienced players that are vocal that play with commitment and skill, whether Dawson can do the job or not we can not be sure but there must be younger players than him that fill the required wants of the manager that we can get, even if they are only 2 or 3 years younger.

4.) 22 May 2018 12:58:56
Cahill in the England Squad at age 34.

5.) 22 May 2018 13:13:47
Bsered, as may be but would another manager play him, or play a 31, or 32 year old.

6.) 22 May 2018 16:16:29
Or they could play John stones in stead of him way younger.byt then again he’s worse than Cahill so sort of goes against what your saying.

7.) 22 May 2018 16:38:46
Sutton_red85, so you believe there is no player that is younger, even slightly younger than Cahill that is either equal in talent or more talented than him.

8.) 22 May 2018 16:54:02
The choice is England is limited because we have so few good centre backs. Maybe Lascelles will improve, and I always thought Jagielka was better than Cahill anyway. I'm not saying I agree with Cahill's selection, but he's pretty dependable in what he can do.

9.) 22 May 2018 20:39:31
Stevie f welcome sorry no one else said so,enjoy and don't be intimidated,day what you think.
Dawson? It's tough one are we remembering how he was? A great young talent?
Certainly proved himself and got the experience, but des cane back and was a shadow of his former self.
There lies the dilema
Me personally would leave it and move on.

10.) 22 May 2018 22:28:45
Ff799 thanks for the welcome mate, not expecting the Dawson of old but he can still head kick, and lead people raving about Fig, but i believe he's got plenty to prove anyone who saw Bamford of all people work him over at boro must realise that.

11.) 23 May 2018 09:21:37
Must admit figs did have a couple of shaky performances,One being at Boro,looked good prior to that though.

01 Sep 2019 10:22:26
Think the ref was summed up by the decision to give offside against us and allow them to take a free kick from a yard inside OUR half, total clown didn't even look fit, I am told this was the moron who allowed the Roofe goal at Leeds last year, don't know for sure but wouldn't be surprised.

Stevie f

{Ed001's Note - you do realise the laws of the game were changed this season to give the free kick were the play ended? So it can be in your own half.}

1.) 01 Sep 2019 10:44:52
Stand corrected ed, he was still a clown though! 😊.

{Ed001's Note - can't dispute that, he is a referee after all. They are only a pair of over sized shoes and red nose away from being a clown.}

2.) 01 Sep 2019 11:32:58
In my eyes he sported said attire!

{Ed001's Note - I think that is the uniform for VAR officials now.}

3.) 01 Sep 2019 11:54:43
Awful ref but one of the worst jobs in the game- would anyone on here want to do it? Hard enough at kids level let alone adults or professional. No refs no games 🤷🏻‍♂️
Tool is a good description but a workman with no tools doesn’t get much done 🤣.

4.) 01 Sep 2019 20:02:21

29 Aug 2019 22:47:50
Has there ever been a more whinging, moaning, attention seeking, mob than that shower down the 52? They still making their excuses, and moaning about 10 changes and 'young side' even though we made 8 changes, and our average age was lower, they squirm and cheat around ffp, their club captain gets involved in scuffles with groundsman, because they can't take getting beat, oh and last year cheated to get a game called off for snow because it wasn't safe to travel, even though Cardiff fans were having a kickabout in the derby car park, a club with zero class, everytime we play them I dislike them more.

Stevie f

I work in burton. I haven’t said anything to the sheep that I work with, I just sit there sipping tea from my forest mug and stare at them. One of them said we played their reserves, I said they played ours. Then he went off in a huff. It’s fun times. Still, Tuesday means nothing if we don’t win on Saturday.

3.) 30 Aug 2019 08:39:06
Stevie, you’re right but where has it got them absolutely know where and they have now gone full circle back to the mandate that Nigel Clough had . Better to revel it what they haven’t managed to achieve rather than what they’ve got away with. They’ve been a strong side for a few seasons now but I think this season will be a different prospect for them .

Carlo absolutely not 2nd in league and Europe campaign under carey 1957 / 72 unbroken top flight football ( where were the sheep? ) 3rd in prem under Clarke, quarter finals of uefa cup under Clarke what have ghe sheep done other than with cloughs teams?

11.) 30 Aug 2019 19:32:29
Oh yes I forgot but I saw us beat them in the FA cup final ,probably our first hour !

12.) 30 Aug 2019 20:19:27
Carlo merely clariifying my point about the sheeps non existence before clough, and after him.



28 Aug 2019 09:03:03
Think the most encouraging thing from last night is, I wouldn't be disappointed if the eleven who started last night started against Preston shows the depth of the squad,

Think the problem with the so called lesser teams Is that we are more comfortable playing away, ie on the counter attack than trying to break down teams who defend deep, maybe an match fit carvallho will make a difference, whatever I have said about the kid in the past he does have an eye for a ball, but needs a solid base in behind him, which hopefully we now have,

2star radio Nottingham is a joke mate, no phone in anymore, think Leicester have one every night, derby have one, emphasis on a non league team getting 50% of the airtime, comparing a win over Halifax to a win away over a recent prem team, commentary on a non league team, and a league 2 side hardly mentioned, like I said pathetic.
