I feel a bit sick right now as rumours emerge about MON future. Marakinakis was full of praise when he interviewed Martin saying his enthusiasm was overwhelming. Givem Martins experience and absolute honesty i would like to think that he would be given a chance to vindicate his alppointment. Look at the reality of the injuries he inherited and the huge squad of averageness. A couple of days of crap window to shore up the defence?

Its crucial that msrikinakis invest time in oneil and let's him shuffle this squad and bring in his players. I admit to being baffled by the team sheets and the seemingly lack of conviction from the plsyers on matchday. Is oneil just dussing out the characters he wants to keep? I thought when AK left thst Bruce was a goid fit but got many thumbs down.

I doubt even he coukd get a tune out of this bloated and fragmented squad. Its going to be painful between now and the season end but its essential to get this squad rinsed of the dross and a clean slate for Oneil. You can see it now out with the Brit and in comes Johnny foreigner and his ambitious calamatous vision for a quick fix. It will be another disaster. Just look at that squad? Can you really level ALL the blame at a hapless Oneil?

If Marikinakis pulls the trigger so prematurely it will show him as impatient and petulant, insincere and desperate. Many good things have happened under his stewardship but getting the right manager and assembling a tight talented squad has been a huge failing. He needs to grasp reality and support Oneil right now. MAYBE MON is not the right manager but should he be judged and sentenced on the mistakes of previous managers poor judgement? I think you all know the answer!

If you’re a good manager, you take average players and make them good, and good players exceptional. You make the most with what you have and bring in to improve the squad by buying players to turn a weak area into a strength. Since AK left, our strength of being fairly hard to beat has faltered, our attacking prowess has left us, and we’ve played more formations than in the previous two seasons. It could be argued that inconsistency in a shape is causing players to make poor tactical decisions which is then causing us to be easier to break down. AK played a system, it might not have been pretty or always effective but it was consistent and thus hard to break down. I personally don’t think MON should go, but I think if he doesn’t stick to a system he won’t be here come the start of next season.

2.) 18 Apr 2019 11:07:30
Ever since Martin came in these players have become trash overnight. They’re that bad he’s been forced to play our best centre mid at leftback, drop our most creative player to the bench when we can’t score and leave our center back in the stands so we can play our best leftback there. Now this sounds confusing and that’s because it is. MON needs to go.

3.) 18 Apr 2019 12:44:47
I wouldn’t say that. The issue lies with the fact that MON is taking a while to settle in and get his team set up but he’s not doing it quick enough and people are becoming disillusioned. He just needs to stick to one thing until the end of the season and if that’s round pegs in square holes then so be it. As long as players know what they’re supposed to do rather than what they think they should do we’ll improve. I think there’s too much freedom for too many players which is why we’re conceding and don’t look a team.

4.) 18 Apr 2019 13:00:48
He just needs to play the best players in their right positions and forget the hoof ball tactics. Something he is too stubborn to do.

5.) 18 Apr 2019 13:30:51
Why do we never hear anything from roy keane wonder what his thoughts are??

6.) 18 Apr 2019 16:05:44
His thoughts are probably why have I come here to be on the end of all this social media hatred after only 14 games.

7.) 18 Apr 2019 18:45:25
Just what we need. A new manager. After all, it's always made a difference and got us promoted over the last 10 years or more.

8.) 18 Apr 2019 18:57:30
Syred- It’s not hatred he’s just not up to the job. Can you explain his recent bizarre team selections? And awful football.

Diamond Geezer - why stick with a manager that obviously isn’t working? If his name was McLeish youd want rid.

9.) 18 Apr 2019 19:13:33
Why would you feel a bit sick? It's Forest, same old, same old.😐

10.) 18 Apr 2019 21:26:57
Red tree if Osborn is our best centre midfielder then we are in trouble.
Even karanka and warby didn't play him there.

11.) 18 Apr 2019 23:00:00
Just to clarify 79’ In my opinion

Colback is our best CM
Robinson is our best LB
Milosevic should be playing CB
Carvahol should be playing CAM

I don’t rate Osborn, if we want to challenge at the right end Osborn isn’t in the team.

12.) 19 Apr 2019 19:29:42
Jamie ward is better than osborne, I would like to o Neil get his 18 months after all we'd go through 4 managers I that time ,and if he was to go whos coming in overseas managers are not going to do us any good they don't know the league if we was to change I'd bring in David Blaine as we need a fcking magician do do any thing here, I'd settle for some decent moving off the ball passing and getting a few shots on goal

13.) 19 Apr 2019 23:42:24
David Blaine would be an improvement on the miracle man at the moment.

14.) 19 Apr 2019 23:51:47
Well everybody is having a go at pick and mix with the squad.
The fact is the squad was assembled to play out from the back and be solid in midfield. and playing on the break That was working until our centre halves got injured.
You cannot expect the team to adapt mid season to playing a completely different way with a new manager so stop moaning and just accept that MON is giving everyone a go to see who he wants for next year.
Pre season has started early. We will dump at least 10 in June when contracts run out. The youngsters are not quite ready but we have a core of good pro's upon which to rebuild the squad.
I could not care less if we lose all the remaining matches as individual performances will determine who is up for next season?

15.) 20 Apr 2019 17:17:14
You might not care but people are paying money to watch this garbage. He hasn’t shown us anything progressive or deserving of a shot next season. So instead of telling people what to do consider what’s best for the fans and our poor necks. hoooof.

16.) 22 Apr 2019 08:28:11
Cant switch to a different style ?? I've seen teams make 3 subs at half time and from playing it out from the to long ball because the opposition have stepped the pitch, they have played football from a young age and are paid well to play they should be able to follow instructions and tactics so is that managers fault or players maybe both

17.) 22 Apr 2019 11:38:05
Managers fault



17 Jan 2019 22:04:33
For all the negative reaction to Johan beneloane joining us and i have looked at his stats. Some of the stuff on youtube show a comepetent mobile skilful tough tackling defender. Can do no worse than what we have available.

rutland red1

1.) 18 Jan 2019 05:07:20
YouTube is the worst players best can make anyone look a world beater.

2.) 18 Jan 2019 07:25:19
A lot better than what we have Rutland at least he's a defender doing a defending job .not a midfielder or a winger as used over the past 12 months .hey we might even have a manager doing a managers job now as well what do you think Sutton 😆😆

3.) 18 Jan 2019 07:46:09
I like it Skegs.

4.) 18 Jan 2019 08:05:23
I spoke with a leicester fan who watches every game including under 23's home and away and he says he is a very good cultured centreback. Gets stuck in and may take a few yellows. He reckons oneil is just the man to get the best from him.

5.) 18 Jan 2019 09:32:47
Can also be the best players worst friend,depends how you look at it Sutton. 🤔

6.) 18 Jan 2019 14:36:02
Johan Benaloane. sounds like he's no mates!???

7.) 18 Jan 2019 15:25:14
MY Leicester mate says he is solid and a good player. He has just been unlucky with the form of Huth and Morgan and now Maguire.

8.) 18 Jan 2019 15:41:02
Is Lacovitti out on loan? If not, why not give him a game? And what about the young Swedish centre back? I hope young players get more opportunity under M O'N than they did with Karanka.

9.) 18 Jan 2019 15:57:25
Yes, what is the point of keeping Anel Ahmedhodzic if we don't even play him when no other defender is fit. It must sent the message that you will never get a chance if he doesn't get one now.

10.) 18 Jan 2019 16:00:24
And no, Lacovitti - Scottish International - is not out on loan as he was in the U23 side.

And Anel Ahmedhodzic is also an intenational.

11.) 18 Jan 2019 19:57:03
If we signed Messi someone on here would say he's past it, give the bloke a chance and i mean MON

12.) 18 Jan 2019 20:55:11
Read the comments about Iacovitti and Ahmedhodzic not being played. Seen a fair bit of these two with the U23s.
Not seen much from Iacovitti to get excited about. Ahmedhodzic is a real talent but last time I saw him, 9 months ago, still way too skinny for a Championship centre half. He's only 19 and 6 foot 5. Just give him some time to fill out. Fingers crossed, he could be a real gem



28 Dec 2018 12:02:42
Fox was seething as he came off and had to be restrained. Was it from the ref or AK? Their were some long injuries and lots of subs plus pants did his usual time wasting which is about as thick as he gets. So the ref, rightly made us pay.
Bringing on Dias would have angered the senior pros as we were dealing with wave after wave of pressure from Norwich.

Watson sat deep or Osborn harassing would have made sense but Dias? AK is on a suicide mission and will not admit his mistakes. Darikwa is so inconsistent its a shame, sorry but if AK perseveres with certain players we will never be a proper force. He has one style, if you can call it that, which is effective away but he has no plan B at home. How can teams like Norwich swarm over us at home yet we are feeble and directionless? Frustrated?!

rutland red1

1.) 28 Dec 2018 15:13:33
For me foxy and colback men of the match for me fox probally wanted to get at dias and give him a b******g after all he deserved it woeful.

2.) 28 Dec 2018 21:25:16
Pantilimon booked for time wasting in the 97th minute.
Would the ref have blown up if he hadnt p@@@ed about and just lumped it up?
Guess we will never know

3.) 28 Dec 2018 23:42:16
Pants is PANTS and any other manager will drop him,s---------tt



02 Feb 2018 16:45:05
Ben watson expected to sign after the Fulhsm gsme. Positve talks held at the academy. Will be great for us.

rutland red1

1.) 02 Feb 2018 16:53:30
Him and Coleback would be a couple of firebrands in midfield, along with Bridcutt I can see our work-rate going up.I don't know how Bouchalakis is going to fit in. There will be a lot of question-marks over our present players by the summer.

2.) 02 Feb 2018 17:34:50
I can't see where osborn and dowell are going to fit in

3.) 02 Feb 2018 18:30:22
Really Dowell is one of the best players we have

4.) 02 Feb 2018 21:03:36
Dowell is a luxury,which is fine when your playing well and winning.
His problem is he goes missing in games,sometimes for 70 mins then might pull a thunderbolt out of the blue.
Other than a big deflected goal against wolves,he has not played well for a while.
Needs to put a full shift in,but then you have to take into account he's been in a side that has a unbalanced midfield with four being left footed on everymatchday.
Should be more balanced now,but i'd leave him out tomorrow in favour of ged colback osborn cash and tomlin.
Stronger players against a very good side in great form.

5.) 02 Feb 2018 21:07:06
He is very talented i will give him that. he's a luxury player if the teams playing well he does well other than that he's very lazy

6.) 03 Feb 2018 08:12:45
Your right ff. we now have pit ponies as well as show ponies.

7.) 03 Feb 2018 11:42:41
New guys aside as I don't know about them, Dowell is the only one who can hit a decent free kick.

8.) 03 Feb 2018 13:24:04
As well as a dodgy corner 🙄

9.) 03 Feb 2018 21:22:20
Like i said should have left Dowell out,snowboater who plays for himself,not the team.

10.) 04 Feb 2018 11:58:13
Dowell needs to be dropped for a few games.

11.) 04 Feb 2018 14:57:29
Lol what's a snowboater it sounds good craic 😂



27 Jan 2018 22:31:22
At least now their can be no argument. Karanka has given him a chsnce and he has taken it. I told you all Velios is not crap well done karanka.

rutland red1

1.) 28 Jan 2018 06:39:53
Just seen the goal, great finish. Playing brereton ahead of velios has cost us .

2.) 28 Jan 2018 09:48:49
Two bad defensive errors cost us.
I said it was game over at half time.

3.) 28 Jan 2018 14:28:21
Ff79 you seemed happy with the line up yesterday. You then thriugh what you saw changed your tone. Was it really that bad???

4.) 28 Jan 2018 16:16:41
Rutland. Nearly everyone thought it was a positive line up. We even convinced ourselves that Carayol might be part of a master plan. We sat or stood mainly and watched absolute garbage.

5.) 28 Jan 2018 16:51:12
Ff79 i do not get csryol. He always looks liks he is limping either thst or he has one leg shorter than the other. For sure Karanka will have his eyes open now. Its so disrespectful to 4000 travelling fans for that to ever happen again.

6.) 28 Jan 2018 21:03:34

Karanka will have Carayol out the door as he had his eyes opened at Boro with him. He has no work ethic or courage and is good for about 20 mins a game on a good day!

He'd be better off in the French league where he will get more space.

7.) 28 Jan 2018 22:22:19
Rutland I was happy with the line up,the problem is they didn't turn up yet again.
They win a game against the top side in the league and follow it up with a shocker,been doing it for too long now,It's inexcusable big clearout required as they don't have the mental strength to succed

8.) 29 Jan 2018 05:15:31
Mental strength that's a good point. These next 4 days are going to be interesting. What does karanka do??? Stick or twist????

9.) 29 Jan 2018 08:36:31
On that performance twist.
Boukalkis fox Carayol definite non starters for me and and Dowell and Brereton dropping to the bench.

Well after 3 years in lancashire exile i am back in the bussom of my beloved Rutland. So i can lay claim to Rutland Red with authority once more😃😃😃
I have no wifi in the house yet so am relying on the pub. Nice.
Looking at the situstion and in the light of Msrikinakis statement i am still not convinced we are pitching at the right level to secure promotion this season. We are going down the same route as the fsilures of the not so distant past. I really want to be positive but the squad is growing quickly again and is it the desired quality?
O'neil was on the right path but wecwill never know.

He knew the type of player required to fulfil the chsirmans desire this year. I fail to see how the manager can pick a team from this large seemingly average squad of bits and bobs yet again. Asking players to find new clubs is a cop out. Just get rid, pay off, put your big toe on the block and reduce the numbers to a managable level. Goals win you matches yet this department is being overlooked massively. The sort of striker thst gets you goals at this level is your Dwight Gales etc. Horrible individual but the likes of him and Jay Rodrigues do it for fun at this level. Jay has gone back to Burnley and when he came to the city ground you fould see his quality.

I really want the feel good factor to prevail this season but its roundabout again and we are falsely going to be elevated as promotion favourites again. You only have to look at the type of players villa, norwich and sheff United had last season to understand that a lot of home grown talent mixed with proven foreigners is the key. If we do not hit the ground running i fear for this new lot. Have the promised 6 come in yet to help lamouchi?
We have a tough start maybe too tough?

rutland red1

1.) 19 Jul 2019 00:40:55
I totally agree with you Rutland couldn't and wouldn't put it better myself because it would of took ages to write lol marankis knows we need quality i.e championship premiership players 5 of to get us anywhere near top 6 this season so over to you prove you want us back in the premiership and stop talking like. mrs may.

2.) 19 Jul 2019 08:28:33
Welcome back Rutland, looking forward to all the squashed flies on your car traveling around Rutland water . Lived in Stamford a few years back for a time what a beautiful area to live, must be closer to the city ground now .

3.) 19 Jul 2019 11:49:53
Great summary Rutland. We are a team of bits and bobs and that comes from having a churn of managers constantly signing their own players. The bar must be lifted with the next few signing to bring some REAL quality to the team otherwise it will take a miracle to get out of this league this season. Goals are what we so desperately need and at the minute, the team simply doesn't have the talent to get them amount required. Gayle, Assombolonga etc. These are the signings we need.

4.) 19 Jul 2019 13:02:19
Have I missed something about ffp being ditched? We all know what’s needed to get promotion-score goals don’t concede many, dead easy but nothing’s guaranteed and you cannot just keep spending, writing off huge amounts of money and go again. And unless I’ve missed something, paying contracts off does actually still mean paying contracts off and funnily enough costs money. 🤷🏻‍♂️
Mistakes constantly being made by numerous owners and managers and fans adding to it doesn’t bode well.

5.) 19 Jul 2019 14:37:27
Manager and Owner both saying that they are looking to add quality additions to the team. Quality costs money, so they either have different opinions of what quality is or there has to be some money there to spend because freebies are more than often freebies for a reason and we can't keep delving in to that market.

6.) 19 Jul 2019 16:00:08
Perhaps they will earn big bucks on player sales?

7.) 19 Jul 2019 16:41:37
I can’t wait for an owner or a manager to say they’re looking to add a few average players, a few older injury prone journey men and an extra physio to help deal with them 🤣.



04 Jul 2019 09:56:01
Having looked at the official squad it numbers 31. So as it seems to be difficult in moving the bang average players on i tried picking my best eleven from it.


Back 3 of milosevic, Dawson, Figarado.

Across the middle, Robinson, Yacob, Bridcutt, Ameyobi.

Advanced mids, Carvalaho and Lolley

Grabban up top

Now if we do not add any to this team, is it good enough, even with new management to attain top 2?
Not top 6 as the owner wants prem guaranteed.
I doubt it. This team would and should make top 10 again but no more. Thoughts.

rutland red1

1.) 04 Jul 2019 10:34:40
If the manager decides on his best 11 early doors, tries to keep changes down to a minimum, plays to their strengths, we do not have too many injuries, and everyone pulls together we might, just might make the top two.

2.) 04 Jul 2019 11:04:42
Sounds like Sheffield United last year LC except they had a small low paid squad with a point to prove not overpaid injury prone geriatrics that Warburton and Karanka saddled us with. We've got a long way to go to be top 6 let alone top 2.

3.) 04 Jul 2019 11:13:31
If you’re gunna go for best 11 I’d go:
3-4-3 too probably.

Milo Figs Robinson
Cash Yates Yacob Osborn
Lolley Ameobi

I’d also be happy with:
Darikwa Milo Figs Robinson
Yates Osborn
Lolley Carvalho Ameobi

4.) 04 Jul 2019 11:17:12
Lol top 2 I will have some of what your on lc have you not seen any of the other teams and players for them in our league by the way we're in the championship not league 1 🤣.

5.) 04 Jul 2019 11:24:23
It worked before keep ya best 11 playing that's the only way your going to build success clough did fergie did if at man u some times feel theirs to much chop and change at forest I'd settle for players playing in their best positions.

6.) 04 Jul 2019 13:16:22
Top 2 don't make me laugh the most of the players that been have picked to finish in the top 2, played last year and struggled to finish top 6

7.) 04 Jul 2019 13:27:43
Lamouchi has never used three at the back during his time at Rennes or Ivory coast, not sure why he'd start now. Forest started with a back three against Dundee but not sure that's how Lamouchi will be playing it come the start of the season.

8.) 04 Jul 2019 15:23:03
Lower bc, I did not say they would finish in the top two.

You mentioned the players picked played last year, what you forgot to mention is Aitor took about a third of the season to decide on his best 11.

He played players out of position, and it as those players that rebelled against both Aitor and Martin, so everyone was not pulling together it was players against managers, to which the players won each time.

9.) 04 Jul 2019 21:09:46
Sorry guys. Neither of the teams mentined above is anywhere near good enough to challenge for the top 6.
We need at least 4 more players who are Lolly standard to do that.



01 Jul 2019 17:20:10
Reading some of the optimistic posts re the coming season. The king is dead long live the king
A reality check is called for. By all accounts the players last season were so disrespectfull too our management team that some were turning up late for their job, one so late he missed the bus for a match. Guediora was so disruptive when dropped he refused to warm down boasting he was now, technically on international duty, which he did not get the call up for. oneil was fuming and we the supporters are expecyed to forgive and forget?
A nucleus of lazy disruptive so called senior pros caused mayhem last season. Players on fat contracts who know they are untouchable and i'm msny ways treat us the fans fraudulantly. Remember AK after the Ipswich game By all accounts a senior pro had undermined Karanka. So their is a poison in this less than average squad and they betrayed us and martin.
Remember the Fawaz family, running a mickey mouse league in Qatar? He allowed the players to have direct contact with him and thst put paid to a number of our gaffers.
Our current owner has had success with a huge team in a micky mouse league, is under suspicion for match fixing among other worrying allegations. He has allowed players access to bicker about oneil, a swift axe on a decent manager and club legend who has not even been able to shuffle the stagnant pack.
The appointment of another carlos kickaball with no experience in this country let alone league is bewildering. Bringing in 6 new assistants, not players, is going to be, not interesting, but laughable.
Our owner seems ruthless and desperate. All his eulogising about oneil then no support over insubordination and condensing a crap squad is pure crass. He is a despot and his empire is crumbling. Promises of redevelopment is all well and good but abstract failure to capitilise on the feel good factor from the sold out saturdays is negligent. We are a shambles in comparrison to the average teams around us. This man has no 5 year plan not even a 5 month plan as in the fate of martin. He is building his empire on sand. You may sense in Marikinakis i have no trust.
Hope is all we can wrap our support in and keep our sense of humour!

Wow pal gud post one you should send to Marinkas himself, it reads like a statement from fans of Nottingham Forest. Couldn't agree more, maybe O'Neil wasn't the right man but no need to throw him in the cow dung then rub his face in it.

May as well scrap the season before its even started.

5.) 01 Jul 2019 18:31:54
Come on redtree you don't honestly believe this squad has quality, it has a few agreed but needs four quality signings and keeping lolley aswell.
The bad apples amongst them have already played two managers up and are still there, it will need them gone and the quality signings.

6.) 01 Jul 2019 19:37:36
We came 9th with a defensive crisis, change of manager and our top goal scorer being injured. We aren't far off. I am not buying into this bad apple stuff. I think the board has conveniently blamed the players (they've probably dropped the story) to disguise the fact they made the wrong decision in appointing MON in the first place.

7.) 01 Jul 2019 19:59:41
We never put more than two wins together all season when it mattered and you must be convinced that this time they've made the right appointment?
Only time will tell but without some pace and quality and the manager getting used to the championship in record time, it will be difficult to improve especially with so many players in their twilight years who could not stay fit last season.

8.) 01 Jul 2019 20:40:58
Didn’t put two wins together but were on course for the playoffs. Didn’t say he was the right appointment all I have said is I am excited and we’ve got some quality players not a total write off. You can be as negative as you like but every season I believe we can do something meaningful otherwise what’s the point!

9.) 02 Jul 2019 09:51:38
On course for the playoffs yet lacked the ability to string wins together.
Dropped the ball against Norwich and Villa.
The same players bar ameobi=same results if not worse?

10.) 02 Jul 2019 10:55:42
Read again. Hopefully we don’t have a defensive crisis, top scorer doesn’t get injured and there’s no managerial change, . Like last season when we finished 9th. Once again if you want to go in to this season believing we will be worse than good luck with it.



30 Jun 2019 17:28:22
Just back from hols and after yesterdays shock i could not wait to get home and see the reaction on here. I said when Keane resigned expect Martin to be gone too as it was very quiet begind the scenes.
Gutted but not surprised. Keane left, obviously as he wanted nothing to do with player power stranglehold bringing the club to a standstill. No power from the management team so Keano did one. He had no club to go to
As for the senior pro's not happy with oneil We have none, nkne of any standing for sure. Reading the stirring on social media its obviously Grabban. That man has been a tw$t at every club. Robinson would have been one as well. A senior pro is a player with stature and loyalty. We have none in that bracket, maybe dawson, but for sure he would not be a trouble maker.
In truth with the backdrop as it was oneil had to go, i didn't know things were this bad. But its the right decision as this squad is simply too big, not good enough and i doubt the new manager will get much from it. It needs condensing massively. Ameiobi was a step in the right direction but to pick a team from 45+ players is going to be a mare.
I was so angry yesterday but hope Martin is in a better place. Hard graft is what pre season is all about, remember the sandhills under BC etc. If gruelling runs are tough for these snowflakes then bottle they have none.
Marikinakis is doing it his way now, i just hope he has the bottle to punish and clear out the reneguades and drosse who disrespected a club legend and decent bloke!

Trying to see the big picture and understand that Keane has gone fir personal reasons. I am struggling to see a positive perspective. Keane was very eager to link up with Martin and had to tie up some personal committments and come to terms with family illness before joining the club. On reflection Roy and Martin have been ok together but what they have acheived would not alert clubs to Roys development as a rounded manager so why would he leave to fulfill personal ambition?
The clear out of this bloated squad has been fitful and unbalanced with the likes of soudani going when in reality their are so many before him
Wasting club time. The recruitment looks desperate and very underwhelming for a club with lofty ambitions and pending ground developments, based on forward success.
Martin has been very quiet to date, that's ok if he is going about business in a stealth like manner but in truth its a bombshell Keane leaving. He was keen to come but with the job just really starting in earnest he has gone. It has shocked me!
Sometimes silence is deafening but this scenario is indicative of a situation that Roy sees only one outcome. But please chaps put your thoughts with Martin right now, he is so committed and at a crucial time has lost his assistant. Penny for his thoughts?

It does not matter why Roy left, he has chosen to do so and as long as he does not get promotion with a Championship team before Forest do under Martin i wish him luck.

Off course there are many players need getting rid of that are surplus to requirements but as clubs are having to contend with ffp the club can not pay them all off.

I feel Martins hands are being tied to so extent, but it is just a matter of hoping that once the transfer window is closed he turns what he has into a well drilled unit and we make a good fight of trying to get promoted.

Agreed in part red but telling 4 players they can go is poor. Just pay them up or agree a deal to terminate. Stupid having them hanging around.

No different to the chaotic recruitment under AK. Martin had a realistic handle on what was needed and his recruitment was solid. Its all just another massive gamble and continues the theme of over population. Team spirit is difficult to nurture uhder this policy.

Liam bridcutt was growing into the role end of previous season. Better mobility than colback. Landsbury was better than both on his day, good collector of yellows too. But colback is not worth the wages. Sorry but at nearly 30 he is after money not passion for promotion.

Gazz if Stuart had a stronger no2 with him I think it would have been a longer tenure. But like you win or lose i would feel more affiliated with psycho at the helm!
