What will the new manager do with Dias, Clough, Goncalves, Soudani and pantillimon . A lot of skeletons in the cupboard aren’t there?


1.) 11 Jan 2019 22:05:31
Shouldn't be if ak was as good most say why are 3 in that list his signings



31 Dec 2018 17:45:23
Since 14/15 season to present day, in the period 20th December to 02 jan our stats are:
Played 16
Won 0
Drawn 7
Lost 9

These stats have occurred under 5 managers, Pearce, freedman, montanier, warburton and Karanka . Can it be possible that the managers are always to blame. These are disgraceful stats and the variety of players who have been at the club achieving them clearly couldn’t care less about working hard at a time of year where outcomes of games very much define the overall outcome of the season.

These stats have made me furious and I doubt whether me and the rest of the family will renew our 5 season tickets next season. What’s the point when players can’t be arsed to show up at a point of the season where workmanlike and industrious performances ned to be given.

Every year our season unravels at Xmas and we get sucked into a relegation battle . Forest , get a grip, sort it out - it’s disgraceful and pathetic.


1.) 31 Dec 2018 18:52:06
2star, most of us think that we can do, and know better than any manager we have had because of the poor results every season, so we air our views where we can but as long as your able to go to games you should go and give your support.

Not because you are told to, but because the club needs you, and i really believe in the near future we will come good.

2.) 01 Jan 2019 09:41:40
LC Then practice what you preach and get behind the team and the manager?
You have to have belief to be successful at anything otherwise you end up being a loser.

3.) 01 Jan 2019 10:08:05
RIE, I get behind the team at every game i go to then say how i see on here.

4.) 01 Jan 2019 11:43:03
Well Lansbury always took Xmas off, who do we blame this year? Dawson?

5.) 01 Jan 2019 12:18:16
I blame RIE.

6.) 01 Jan 2019 12:23:13
Scouse, I blame the players that play in the games personally. I recognise an alternative view is to say it’s the manager , but the same outcomes under 5 different. Managers? A bit odd in my opinion. December has been a complete disaster again and something needs to change . It’s just not good enough, I doubt whether anyone has such alarming stats as those .

Fawaz is trying to buy Charlton


1.) 12 Sep 2018 22:47:46
Knowing our luck he'll be succesfull and get them to the prem,🙄🙄

2.) 12 Sep 2018 23:26:25
Which one, bobby or jackie?

3.) 13 Sep 2018 00:08:29
I hope this isn’t true

4.) 13 Sep 2018 00:23:54
He shouldn’t be allowed to buy a bag of crisps in this country let alone another football club

5.) 13 Sep 2018 01:04:18
Why are you getting worried?

6.) 13 Sep 2018 07:36:11
For footballs sake (ffs) and would you want another set of fans to go through that?

7.) 13 Sep 2018 09:09:37
Usmanov-think that's how it's spell it is apparently interested in Charlton,can't see fawaw passing another fit and proper owner test.

8.) 13 Sep 2018 09:22:37
New job for King Billy on the cards😆

9.) 13 Sep 2018 13:21:59
Why is he coming back ,3rd time lucky!

10.) 13 Sep 2018 16:17:54
The Forest club shop has just had a major sales windfall. Fawaz and his Bank Balance were spotted sneaking out the service bay with boxes of Fawaz sponsored Forest shirts bound for The Valley as part payment for the club!



10 Aug 2018 22:59:13
Hopefully Karanka has seen that Darikwa and Benny are the weak links at full back in the first two outings. If we are to improve them it is surely ta ta benny and ta ta darikwa


1.) 11 Aug 2018 01:01:15
Weak link if any has been not been capatilising on our chances and dominance. Darikwa i agree has been our worst player, hesitant and gives the ball away. But benny is solid as he is always. Say ta ta to our player of the season last season have a word.

2.) 11 Aug 2018 04:38:14
Dont get why you are so down on Osborn. Terrific little player wherever he plays.

3.) 11 Aug 2018 07:51:32
Benny is no leftback. Always gives it his all but falls over too much and makes poor decisions. He was runing back to the goal line instead of attacking the danger when wba scored. Darikwa just not a rightback either. When you play 3 5 2 you might get away with these 2 but in a back four not a chance. Why is Robinson not playing???.

4.) 11 Aug 2018 08:15:37
Spot on Rutland, Osborn puts in a shift but he isn't a left back, he runs round like a little terrier snapping at people's heals but all to often gets found out of position. Is the old debate around, what position is his position? Most people will say attacking mid but as you will see as the season goes on when the Portuguese lads start to gel, he ain't much good at that either. Work rate 110%, substance very much lacking.

5.) 11 Aug 2018 08:46:47
Shows how dreadful we were last season for Osborn to win player of the season. Excellent point made about not taking chances. however , all successful teams need to also defend narrow leads which we are incapable of doing. I’m not sure what game you are watching if you can’t see That Osborn and darikwa are the weak links at full back, which doesn’t make Osborn a bad player by the way , it just means he’s no fullback. Whether there is a place for hi. In the team elsewhere nowadays is a seperate debate altogether. Like Brereton and Worral we may find benny is only going to be third choice this season.

6.) 11 Aug 2018 11:24:23
Not sure all the criticism of the full backs is warranted to be honest after just two games against two sides that have the potential to finish in the top 6 all players need a number of games under their belt before they hit top form

7.) 11 Aug 2018 12:09:28
Redmarsh - he played at lb for much of last season and he hasn't adapted to the position through the summer, still the same frailties.

8.) 11 Aug 2018 14:05:56
Far too much nonsense has been going on over the last 2-3 years regarding Benny. He's one of our best players, but I guess these people just don't want to give up.

9.) 11 Aug 2018 14:46:15
Well bsered this will be the season where both veiws are put to the sword - we really will find out if Osborn is the player we think he is now we have some better ones than before .



07 Aug 2018 22:29:49
Get rid of lolley, darikwa and Osborn and we’ve got a team. Shows how far we’ve come for lolley to look so poor. Some of the old frailties still there.


1.) 08 Aug 2018 00:34:31
What are you talking about lol that was a fantastic performance from everyone

2.) 08 Aug 2018 06:18:05
Lolly one of our better players, find it strange you would say that and Osborne has linked up very well with the Portuguese lads. In fact everybody seems to have raised their game. I wanted to get rid of Guedioura last season, look at him now!

3.) 08 Aug 2018 06:36:50
Lolley was fantastic, he just looked like he was lacking confidence in front of goal. I can understand however why AK wants another right back, he gave the ball away a lot. He's good on the counter attack but that's about it.

4.) 08 Aug 2018 06:55:52
Lolley played well. Agree about the right back though.

5.) 08 Aug 2018 07:37:30
Seriously need new right back! Why we let lichaj go and keep him is beyond me, good overall performance let down by darikwa. Gave the ball away to many times and can't make a decision when on the ball also afraid to take players on

6.) 08 Aug 2018 08:12:25
Our full backs looked like our weakest areas but we covered well. Darikwa just seemed to lose his head and composure.

7.) 08 Aug 2018 08:48:57
To me Darikwa just looks really nervous when the ball comes to him, and it makes me nervous watching him. I feel like he's going to give the ball away every time he gets it.

8.) 08 Aug 2018 09:01:20
I have to say I was very impressed with the performance last night,the result was unfair on us.
When was the last time forest played football with intent?
The results will come if we continue to play like that :)

9.) 08 Aug 2018 11:17:59
Spot on 2star. Those 2 as fullbacks simply woefull

10.) 08 Aug 2018 14:26:16
We showed signs of improvement over last season nice to see players able to dribble the ball movement looked after only problem is same problem as last year can't defend crosses and scoring goals we had enough chance to be 3 up by half him

11.) 08 Aug 2018 15:05:09
Byram will be our right back soon and Robinson will be left back if karanka continues with 4 at back. If not then back 3 of Dawson fig fox

12.) 08 Aug 2018 20:55:36
Lolley lacked the ability to be effective in the final third four times last night . Caught in 3 minds and failed to make the right call in very strong positions.

Having read all of these posts I have to agree Gayle is a cheating c*** and the club should suffer some form of punishment that could impact there points total (either a deduction or a suspension)

In all truth though we will miss out on the playoffs because we capitulated against:

Bristol city.
9//10 points squandered there I’m afraid. On a positive note we’ve been a whisker away from taking all 3 points away at Norwich, Leeds and WBA. That’s quite something in my view.


1.) 13 Feb 2019 20:28:52
2 star that is one word I don't agree with using in life in general.
You have kids,something best not said mate.

2.) 14 Feb 2019 09:58:05
What's wrong with calling Gayle a 'cheating chap'



13 Feb 2019 08:01:30
Surely Gayle should be banned for 3 games ? If you want to cheat you run the risk of getting found out. If you get found out the ramifications should impact on the club? Fair ?


1.) 13 Feb 2019 08:57:49
Totally agree, these cheats are killing the game.
My summary of the game
No penalty to to them
we should have had a penalty
every plater worked for the team but Osbourne was outstanding. For a little guy he really was not intimidated by their giants and got stuck in with plenty of last ditch tackles and tried his best to out muscle them.
If only Grabban had put away that golden chance.
still a good result



12 Feb 2019 20:19:37
I hate it when we score early !


1.) 12 Feb 2019 20:26:21
Beats going one down though 2 star.

2.) 12 Feb 2019 20:49:13
Tactical masterclass at the mo

3.) 12 Feb 2019 20:50:04
Good disciplined half. though think we'll need a second,Grabban needs more support.

4.) 12 Feb 2019 20:51:09
We have held on to the lead until half time. If you are good enough it does not matter how early you score.

5.) 12 Feb 2019 20:54:00
Grabban needs to grow 2 ft some of the balls are shocking give me 20 grand a week I'll just boot it



10 Feb 2019 13:46:13
Scouse , you’re spot on mate, ludicrous decision to Change the manager. Yesterday it was far too easy for Brentford to walk through the midfield. I think MON will do well long term but I can assure you pal, the football is no better than it was. In fact it’s not pretty . The fact that carvalho is out the team tells you that we aren’t through the midfield . Still enjoyable yesterday though mate.


1.) 10 Feb 2019 18:02:42
Appreciate your opinion 2star, I try to keep a balanced view but the shenanigans we've endured as fans, keep me a tad cynical.😁

2.) 10 Feb 2019 21:28:32
O'neill won't get time to be good in the long run, 2star. Promotion or he will be sacked.

3.) 10 Feb 2019 21:38:41
Yep resonates with me entirely but worth keeping an open mind for a while . The football is going to be different for sure but there were some signs yesterday that it could be effective . In any case when say FTID I know you mean it so what other choice is there brother ?



09 Feb 2019 18:52:33
Mon now aware of LG poor peno record . No more for him. Other than that he was excellent.


1.) 09 Feb 2019 19:36:13
Hey 2star. I'd give Lolley a pop at taking them because he can't half hit a ball. If the goalie does get to it, he will end up in the net too!!

2.) 09 Feb 2019 19:51:09
Yep for sure pal.

Some of the duff signings were an act of sheer petulance after the Preston game which then became a grudge in the Summer. I still think the club signed the players but karanka probably insisted he wanted new players to replace all of those he bore a grudge against. Reality is most of them are worse than what we had before . Lord , what a mess again.

FF79, those games have cost us but surely not as winnable as Preston H, QPR H, Bristol City H, Reading A . We’ve surely dropped 10 points there alone.

Good post red , but I think we will just miss out. The games games I listed before :
Preston H
Bristol City H
Reading A
Norwich A
Milwall A
All should have yielded a further 10 points . Think we will just miss out to be honest . Big ask for us to string several b2b wins together - not impossible but a big task .

Who cares anyway. We’re not in the top six because we’ve not been consistently good enough throughout the season. Football is rife with cheating always has been and always will be.
