As I have been posting for a while Britt will go soon and there will be no more signings apart from promising/ cheap ones. Disappointing but perhaps inevitable. I expect the likes of Cash and Grant to come through next season and if we can hold on to all our other stars Forest can challenge for promotion next year. Were Huddersfield and Reading really better than the Forest we saw in brief glimpses last time? I don't think so.

Under MW we played good football against the top teams, but was rubbish against defensive teams. That is no good if you want to be successful, until MW sorts out our defence and finds a couple of creative players success will not happen.

2.) 18 Jun 2017 18:52:34
We're not going to get promoted if Britt goes who's going to score the goals we can't relie on Cummings the Scottish league is a lot different to the championship.

3.) 19 Jun 2017 09:45:53
Pure speculation.

4.) 19 Jun 2017 10:48:11
So Dr N, because you have been posting for a while that means Britt is leaving, lol.

I've been posting for a while now that means I'm a super model.

I don't think anyone has actually made a bid yet have they? Personally if I was a buying club paying top dollar I would at least wait until Jan to see if he is injury free now.

5.) 19 Jun 2017 11:02:32
Cant see MW pulling the trigger on Britt. I'm sure the new owners will back him to keep Britt. I know we are buying young attacking players but Britt is the guaranteed goals.
Would be surprised if he went. Watch this space.

It's not being negative to say that Friday's was the worst game outcome for a long time. Safety could have been assured with a decent performance but now we are faced with four tough matches. I am still optimistic but it is going to be a nervy time. Did Fawaz really have to sell the club right now? The speculation, in the middle of a relegation battle, must be unsettling for players and management alike.

Dr N

1.) 16 Apr 2017 23:18:23
You say 4 tough matches coming up! i don't see it like that I see it as 1 tough match and three matches where the other teams have nothing to play for. cardiff qpr and Ipswich will be just going through the motions of winding down the season and thinking more about next season. we have the beating of all 4of these teams maybe reading will put a bit more in but I recon 2 wins and a draw from last 4 matches which will easily keep us up.

2.) 17 Apr 2017 08:05:44
At the end of the day i would rather be in our position rather than Burton, Blackburn and Wigan.

3.) 17 Apr 2017 09:35:34
If you think Warnock will let Cardiff go through the motions your living in cloud Cuckoo land.

4.) 17 Apr 2017 09:42:26
Getting rid of FAH would be the best thing to happen to Forest in the last few miserable years. Some kind of agreement between Owner, Management (not just the Manager), Coaches and Players to concentrate on a club vision and strategic plan is desperately needed if things are to improve on the pitch, and fate decides at what point that happens, wherever the club are in terms of the EFL.

5.) 17 Apr 2017 11:42:12
The remainder of our games will all be tough, no manager let's their players go through the motions, the Nffc players are so inconsistent and you just don't know if they are going to put up a fight or just go through the motions! Anything can happen and probably will happen, will Nffc play safe during any games to just get a point? Especially if the three below us are losing, i personally hope not and we push hard to win every game.

6.) 17 Apr 2017 13:41:08
That is priceless, blaming Fawaz for Saturday's result. it looks like the guy is selling up and cutting all ties, surely that is a result.

7.) 17 Apr 2017 17:11:39
Nice to see Cardiff have nothing to play for, some people on here have no sense of reality we now have a simple 3 points to collect on Saturday really just get out of your dream world we'll be lucky if we get out of this relegation battle this season i sincerely hope I'm wrong.

8.) 17 Apr 2017 21:26:16
Just proves after today's results people saying that Cardiff, QPR and Ipswich have nothing to play for a total joke especially Ipswich stuffing Newcastle this relegation battle will go down to the last game, also Burton squad probably has half the talent as ours does just proves what players can do with the right attitude unlike some who wear the forest shirt btw fans where superb today again pity some of the players don't have the same passion.

Latest reports suggest Nigel Clough having very serious doubts. You could hardly blame him.

Dr N

1.) 29 Jan 2017 14:11:17
Let's hope he does the sensible thing and stays where he is. His record ain't that good anyway and we don't need to ruin another legend. Pointless for him to come back now.

2.) 29 Jan 2017 15:47:57
Non league Nigel is bound to be having second thoughts, nobody in their right mind would want to work for Fawaz. And there lies our problem. The club is finished with this guy at the helm, there is no way forward until he goes. Fawaz thanks but no thanks, your time is up.



29 Jan 2017 09:48:10
Apparently the London meeting between Fawaz and NC was 'positive'but he still wants to interview other candidates. I shudder to think who he has in mind because all the decent ones have ruled themselves out.

Dr N

1.) 29 Jan 2017 10:01:27
Where nigel get the time to fawaz when fri he was in talks with burton and prepping for saturday.



26 Jan 2017 16:03:44
With one candidate after another ruling themselves out, it is pretty clear that GB will be appointed manager at least for now. No bad thing perhaps: at least he knows the players (I was going to say set up but there isn't one). But can GB or anybody else rely on the owner's word or stated plans? Fawaz is now taking advice from FC and JMc on how to arrange things off the field. Now?

After four and a half years? It's mind boggling. However,I don't believe he will ever allow employees to interfere in what he regards as HIS business. His extraordinary performance on tv last night suggests he is in denial about the club's plight and his own role in causing it.

He seemed shocked and bewildered when Natalie Jackson went for him. As long as he remains in charge we seem doomed on permanent spiral of decline. There's little hope of revival until he clears off.

Dr N

1.) 26 Jan 2017 16:54:23
"we seem doomed on permanent spiral of decline". wow! Talk about hyperbole.

2.) 26 Jan 2017 17:40:58
Dr N you're quite correct. As long as Fawaz is running our club we will not attract any worth while managers or players. Even Paul Heckingbottom of mighty Barnsley has laughed at our approach for him! How low has this club sunk under this idiot.

3.) 26 Jan 2017 17:28:33
The fact that none of the sacked managers have ever spoken out about what it is like to work for Fawaz speaks volumes. Did they all sign confidentiality agreements?

Time to give Vellios a chance. He always puts in a shift and might give us a bit more cutting edge. Maybe try him and Murphy together. Can always change it round it's not working out.

Dr N

1.) 16 Oct 2017 19:00:31
Velios velios velios???? Not even been in a squad warbs kniws something we don't. Oh walker and brereton are better!!!! My asre



16 Oct 2017 11:14:00
I do not share the manager's view that Forest are outplaying teams. We have had one of two good wins this season but have not dominated a single game. We were lucky to beat Millwall, Brentford and Sheffield Utd and would have lost to Boro had you know who not folded under the occasion. We are conceding far too many goals, especially early ones (after 24 seconds in the season's biggest game? ) and creating too few chances. Yes we are playing nice possession football but this alone won't win matches.

Dr N

1.) 16 Oct 2017 17:21:48
I for one have wanted Warburton here from day one but he does look like he's struggling and really can't understand why velios has not been given a chance think he's bought wisely want it to work with him here and want a manager to stay in the seat for at least one full season but not at the chance of us getting relegated I hope he turns things around and brings in some decent additions come January defence and a striker



15 Oct 2017 15:36:01
We have an abundance of nice, nippy players who are good on the ball but nobody to really get a grip of a match. Osborn, Walker, Cummings, Clough and to an extent McKay spring to mind. Hence we are always chasing rather than dominating the game.

Dr N

1.) 15 Oct 2017 17:15:29
Agreed doc tippy tappy looks good but no end product brdcutts fault for first goal did i see him shoot from about 40 yards!subs that came on made no difference at all to many lightweight players half of which couldn't tackle a good dinner only eric and osborn stood out for me thou vellios must at least make the bench good impact player to bring on

2.) 15 Oct 2017 18:45:45
Bloodclot makes far too many unforced errors.
Weak on the ball and just not very good.



15 Oct 2017 15:06:01
Not a disastrous performance but one which shows how lacking in experience and quality we are. Little cutting edge and again conceding goals to powerful running on the break. If we are honest it was a side which will probably finish in the play offs against one which will probably end up between halfway and the drop zone. Important now to nail supposedly easier teams like Burton.

Dr N



27 Sep 2017 10:29:20
MW is safe for now because the owner has not yet publicly announced the manager has his full confidence (usually a sign he's for the chop) . However, this can't go on for too much longer. It's not that we are losing games but that Warburton seems unwilling to change tactics which have clearly been rumbled by every team we play.

Dr N

1.) 27 Sep 2017 11:50:01
After the weekend i think he'll be gone

2.) 27 Sep 2017 15:55:44
Rubbish. Warbo has 36 games to save our season!

3.) 27 Sep 2017 20:42:47
Red. If we lose 4/5 out of the next 7 games Warburton will be evicted, that would then give a new manager time to access the team before the January transfer window.

4.) 27 Sep 2017 23:45:27
A new manager to do what exactly? Warbo has bought good players but missed out on at least one quality defender and keeper.
36 games to complete the revolution!

5.) 28 Sep 2017 05:28:02
I'm all for keeping the faith, i have said before a manager needs a couple of seasons, but in the modern game if you lose 9/10 out of 13 games you are out.

Eric would be in my starting 11 every week. He is experienced and cool and easily the best right back currently at the club.

There were periods of play when United seemed to have 15 men on the field as we struggled to contain waves of fast, slick attacks. It was a gutsy performance to get this result but here is still much to be done.

I agree but the manager has to recognise when his methods aren't working. It's not as if we're unluckily losing by the odd goal - we are being battered.

Two bad defeats against Sheffield Utd and Derby and I don't see how MW could carry on.
