Samba, Smith

Gabriel, new RB
Worrall, McKenna, Mbe Soh, Figs
Ribeiro, new LB

Yates, Sow, McGuane, New cm/ cdm
Krovinovic, Johnson

Mighten, Lolley/ Ameobi, New winger x2

Taylor, New striker.

Realistically a tight knit squad of 22 shoul be along these sort of lines. Make 5/ 6 good quality signings give them time to gel and see where it gets us. We need proven players at this level that are under 27. Ideally we get a couple of good hungry u23 players.
Fingers crossed that the board etc have realised signing 39 y/ o doesn’t work and we need younger hungry players.

I hope we go on a decent run and this is all forgotten. BUT!

If we lose to Barnsley and Coventry Hughton is toast I expect. The results just aren't there. We changed the boss but nothing changed. Don't forget we were defensively solid for most of last season but since Grabban lost it we don't score.

I do think we have been unlucky with injuries. I suspect Colback was carrying one, sow has been, Freeman had a hernia, Lolley was struggling and now his confidence is gone.

But the boss does not seem to know how to get the strikers decent service. If the full backs aren't up to supplying chances to the strikers then we have no choice but to play another way. We can't buy another 4 full backs!

You never know, maybe the new boy will be the answer but one player rarely is. We need to play quicker in attack so maybe Swann should be in the side. But Hughton needs to find a way to get this side creating chances very quickly. If we lose the next game my guess he will be on the phone to see who is interested in the job.

Changing the man in charge is not good. But neither is appointing new ones who make the same mistakes as the previous one.

too many fantasists on here, face up to the fact forest are as beens, and will never command a top spot with these overated players, they need to ship out at least 15, who are totally out of there depth. colbeck should never have been taken onas for yates worrall mighten, not good enough. too many are lazy snails are faster than most of the idel back forest players.

Red cyclist you say we were defensively sound last season. Remember we had matty cash.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jan 2021 09:09:26
The season has changed dramatically for me personally because of the loss of two players. Matty cash who had pace, great defender and could put crosses in. And Ben Watson. Who would organise the midfield. not only that (would have them talking to each other) i'm not dwelling on the past. i'm saying there two places hard to fill.

Red cyclist we have lost one in eight. Yes the boro game was a disgrace. We are in a relegation battle big time as teams around us have picked up crucial points. Now is the time to scrap for every point and with Filip in and one more potential striker we will be ok with hughton. I have confidence in his methods. Trying to find the balance.
Look at west brom. Stuffed again 0 - 5. They had an attack minded manager in Bilic but decided to swap for the more organised pragmatic big Sam. Enough said.

we all talk about a tight knit squad, we had one last season then we shipped in god knows how many new faces. that tipped the balance, its never been right since. we only needed 2 at most 3 new faces. last season squad see themselfs as failures all the new has beens don't help.

Had to start a new lost with this so ff79 can understand why its not fair to be so judgemental about Chris Hughton. I will try to be brief.
Lamouchi gets a turgid but semi successfull tune out of the squad last season but his luck or directive ran out the last 7 or 8 games. Sl blamed the players in his meeting in greece with marinakis. The squad gets 14 additions of mainly average and unknowns and a few are sold or returned to sender. Chaos is in full flow as season cup game starts with listless defeat to Barnsley. We then go on to lose the first 4 games of the new season without scoring a goal. Out with SL in with Hughton. The team and squad in dissaray and confidence lower than a snakes belly but somehow hughton lifts the doom against a desperate backdrop and we get moving. It wasnt pretty but a corner was turned. Ff79 you know the squad is too big to manage and largely its makeshift at best. We have a blip as injuries take their toll and slide again. But we get back up and go seven unbeaten. Its still not pretty, turgid i would say. But from what CH inherited and the team morale i think he has done very well. This with ppl, can hardly call them players, that he did not chose but has moulded into a form of a team is comendable. Your right marinakis and his partners in crime are the problem but give hughton his due, he is not bowing to pressure to bring in any old has been, he is identifying players he feels, from what is currently available, that will enhance the team in a more creative vein. You cannot fault him for that?

That might be your version of events rutland.
Mine is Vrentzos ripped into the players not Lamouchi after the derby game.

FF79 why do you make your posts sound like you know what's going on behind the scenes as facts when in reality your posts are guess work at best to fit your agenda.
By all means post your opinions but don't make out your in the know.

Whats my agenda then trentender?

27 Jan 2021 11:00:07
79 my version of events? That is what happened from the outside, a fans perspective and a brief summary of events. You can't show your ire for the owner and venrtroz and dof and then say the manager is at fault. SL had 18 months let's give hughton at least a year. I actually think the owner is giving hughton the reignsfor once. Many on here were glad with treatmentvof oneil but you I and many more were appalled.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jan 2021 11:08:40
We will have to agree to disagree mate when it comes to hughton.
The quicker he goes the better as far as i'm concerned.
The tugid football will continue that's his style don't want to see it anymore.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jan 2021 12:24:30
Your agenda being to have a pop at the owner at every opportunity and the manager, implying he is just a puppet for the owner and has no say in tactics or player selection/ recruitment.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jan 2021 12:47:25
Thats because that's what is happening and has been since the dof was appointed with karanka spitting his dummy out over it.
If you want to believe otherwise then that's your choice.

27 Jan 2021 12:54:39
Trent how do you know the fat greek doesn't have a say with tactics etc?
How can multiple managers under the Marinakis regime get it wrong?
FF is bang on the nose about Forest.
The Fat Greek runs a dictatorship at Forest.
You do as he says or walk.
The onwer like his cronies are toxic.

You said once that Forest have destroyed Zack Clough now you expect Wigan to turn that around in next to no time.

Perhaps the truth is you never really rated him. 🤣.

Its interesting rutland with you asking us to be more gracious to hughton?
Why?
The fans in general on here thought we'd signed the perfect squad in general?
So then hughton comes in to replace the boring one with his great knowledge and experience of the championship?
Yet we are struggling?
So in your humble opinion he's been lumbered?
Can't have it all ways my friend.
Different tactics?
Ive only seen one attempt at two up front other than that three defensive midfielders for two.
Experienced manager with experienced players should not be a problem?
Oniel did a better job in far less games playing the same sort of football?
It was called dinosaur football

79 oneil was the right man for us end of hence i have little regard for marinakis.
As for the style of football. You try picking an attacking team from this paceless shower of mainly unfit has beens. Not even one of the 3 strikers have any pace. Lolley is washed up ameobi has a trick but runs like a roll of lino with legs. Arter? Did you see him try to run recently. Cafu? Flatters can't shoot can't pass can't run. I could go on. Mighten has pace and a few tricks but is young and learning his trade. We have bacharoo or who ever, fell over and is now looking to challenge or be loaned out. Its a sad outfit for sure, we have some other shockers like figs and christie, riberio who is a light weight headcase like sow another ticking time bomb not to be trusted.
You can criticise hughton, for without doubt he has made mistakes, mainly trusting players who really don't care for the shirt. But in reality could you pick a team from this squad that could press, pass and entertain and score? And stay fit?
Forget the youth on loan right or wrong they are out of the equation for this term. Like you i am tired of hearing CH post match its repetitive and who is learning. But i did say i noticed a change in his mannerism on saturday. I think the bomb squad is about to get bigger as for sure their will changes.
Ppl talk about eddie howe etc. that's fanciful i lived near burnley through his reign there, it wasn't pretty.

Agree1 0Disagree

26 Jan 2021 22:03:02
The point is marinakis owns the club .
We can't change that and every coach has to perform under those circumstances.
Hughton isn't performing and I've beem told how good taylor and knockheart are?
But I've failed to see any evidence.
You want grabban stripoed of the captaincy and benchrd?
Who for?
Taylor?
He's been awful as well, chasing shadowsfalling down all the time.
Scores a great goal 1st minute then dissapears for the rest of the game?
Never even appeared for the swansea game.
Hughton has to have responsibility for the performances and we all asked for better, but its no different from Lamouchi and he got no sympathy so why have any for hughton?

The point is you’re gloating FF. You seem to enjoy us struggling.

No i hate it berseker but you didn't need a cyrstal ball to see it coming.
Lets say nothing hey mate?
And all will be well?
