All the early season optimism has evaporated in the space of 7 games.
Can't come back from a one goal deficit to even salvage a point in 3 of those games.
Cannot defend a lead, two nil up at Villa and three nil up at Norwich in two of those games.
If you can't fight back in a game or hold on to a lead then your really shafted!

After a decent unbeaten run gave us some breathing space we are back to being an embarrassing shambles of a team that are all to easy to score against.
If Brentford do the usual in the week and turn us over at home then by the time we get to play the Barnsley fixture it could have massive significance and could see them overtake us in the league.

That postponement could really cost us as at the time if we'd managed to beat them we would have been as good as safe. Now they are playing better and we are getting worse.

Good post Fred but the warning signs have been there for a while now.
Not scoring is always going to end badly as it's a matter of time before we started leaking goals again.
To many loans in the side,it never works long term.
Time to drop them all and play players who are here next season.
Other than tobias I don't want to see any of the others next season.


2.) 07 Apr 2018 20:58:15
Very true. Keeping clean sheets papered over the cracks somewhat.
Apart from the QPR game where everything we hit went in, goals have been as rare as hens teeth. Once the clean sheets dried up it was always going to spell trouble.


3.) 07 Apr 2018 21:51:49
Three goals I've seen in all our home games fred and one away at hull.
Given up with away games too expensive a day to watch his tactics.
Stands there with his hands in his pockets.
Shows no passion and it shows on the pitch.

Worrall and Mancienne getting injured and falling ill in the week building up to the Burton game forced Karanka's hand and may have saved our season.
Since then we've kept 4 clean sheets in the last 7 games with Figueiredo and Fox at centre half so it was a blessing in disguise.

Yes Watson and Colback have provided a more solid wall in front of the back four but would we have kept those 4 clean sheets with Mancienne and Worrall playing? I very much doubt it and remember Colback played in front of them against Fulham and Hull when we conceded 2 in both games.

Got to agree Fred it shouldn't work on paper but it is.
That's football for you Fred we can all day play Eric he's far better than darikwa? Play anyone except fox as he's crapp?
But sometimes it works as they have an understanding that the so called better players don't.
Can't knock the defensive side of the team.


2.) 18 Mar 2018 05:12:13
Would AK have dropped worrall and mancienne anyway? Worrying if its just luck that forced his hand. Mancienne for me, and i said it many times is poor. I hops worrall watches and learns. He will have future with us for sure. Lkke most on here was delighted that fox has been drafted into the middle. Pants has been a revelation in goal for many reasons but his organisational qualities shine through.
To go to bramall lane, a tough rough team fighting for promotion and keep a clean sheet is commendable and to come out on top second half is evidence of ambition. Well done lads.


3.) 18 Mar 2018 10:39:59
AK knew Manc was no captain and brought in Watson to do the job, the injury was a bit of luck for him. Manc's a possible transfer in the summer, a pity because there is a good footballer in there somewhere.


4.) 18 Mar 2018 14:05:27
I have to say the last few games I watched Worrall play were painful, just mistake after mistake and treating the ball like an unexploded bomb that might explode any second. No doubt he’ll come good but he had started costing us points


5.) 18 Mar 2018 20:20:31
I reckon that getting rid of the ball like an unexploded bomb thing is a hangover from Warburton's ridiculous demand that we ALWAYS played out from the back. How many goals did that gift? Remember Hobbs and Jordan v Sheff Weds? That was a turning point for me. It made two pro's look stupid and gave the opposition ANOTHER goal head-start. We don't see that rubbish any more now we have a defender who has played at the highest level in charge. Hmmm.

Forest lost last 5 home matches.
Failed to score in 7 of last 8.
1 shot on target today at home!!!
Hull's first win in 10.
Hull's second away win in 33!!
We'll be ok when the new signings get match fit. It's not like they've played the game before.
We'll be ok once Karanka decides on the best players for his system.
We've got all the time in the world.

7 points off bottom 3, with continued form like this it could be squeaky bum time again this season.


2.) 10 Feb 2018 22:46:12
All the players got paid, regardless. This is where football has gone so wrong IMO. Performance related pay and a lower basic. Too late now, player power.πŸ‘Ž

Enjoyable second half after a woeful first.
Had Murphy converted one of his two great second half headed chances we would have had an unlikely point.

Ben Osborn has his critics but i thought when he came on he gave us much needed momentum and at least tries to drive the team forward. Granted he gives the ball away on occasion but always gives his all and is a far better option than Bouchalakis and Bridcutt who seem pedestrian in comparison.

Brereton is a complete waste of a shirt at the moment. Yes being played out of position but his body language is all wrong. As No 22 so rightly said there is no excuse for not putting in a shift. Move him or lose him. Darikwa is very poor defensively and it baffles me why he starts ahead of Lichaj. Cohen, Vaughan,Ward and Mancienne would i think make a massive difference to us but they are rarely fit. Mckay is our only highlight at present but more often than not finds himself against three players.

Every time the ball goes in our half i fear we will concede and that cannot be right. I don't pretend to have all the answers but something ain't right and all of you that say we are a work in progress are just deluded. A very frustrated Forest fan.

Red Fred

1.) 24 Sep 2017 06:12:20
Completely agree, we need Mancienne back in the defence, Worrall needs to be dropped for a few games.
We defo need a solid defender & a good goal keeper in Jan window.


2.) 24 Sep 2017 07:37:56
Ben Breretons body language is all wrong because he is being asked to play out of position, it all started against the friendly at Notts County, he came on second half and played through the middle, he was full of energy and scored. Next minute he was told to play right wing and he looked like a kid in a sweet shop with no money to spend. He should put in a shift but MW needs to change things instead of churning out a pretty much unchanged 11 each game. Mills is terrible, Worrall inexperienced, Darikwa and Traore go missing up the field far too much, keeper inexperienced. opposition teams do their homework before a game and they just know how to punish us.

We are a laughing stock at the minute.
Different formation and players every week.
Either a keeper that can't kick or doesn't even bother diving to save a shot.
A striker that thinks he has all the time in the world when put clean through in Grabban who did the same thing at Rotherham last week and was lucky the rebound fell to him.

Red Fred

1.) 13 Apr 2019 16:13:12
We are indeed a laughing stock and at the helm a dinosaur who wouldn't look out of place in the Natural History Museum.
I'm afraid O'Neil has to go.
Bizarre team and hoof ball at its greatest.


 

 

09 Apr 2019 22:45:17
Actually enjoyed the first half and if Grabban had passed to Lolley instead of trying to do something he ain't done all season and score from more than 12 yards out then who knows how the game would have panned out cus Wednesday are no world beaters even though we made them look almost that in the second half.
Basic errors and the way we self imploded is all I'll remember from that game.
Something very wrong isn't there?
Osborn gone from play him anywhere to get him in the team to not even being on the bench.
Yates back in the team after not even being in the squad for the last game.
Where's Milosevic and Bonatini?What the hell happened to Figueiredo our best centre back?
Imagine those two as a defensive pair.
Players that make really promising starts then suddenly turn into total dross,remember Bouchalakis? Now there's Benalouane who started off really well and now looks a total clown.
I'm beginning to think we are cursed.

Red Fred

1.) 09 Apr 2019 23:29:05
Red think we are it could be a lot worse though we could still have fawaz as owner


 

 

09 Apr 2019 21:15:24
Nothing in the first half but boy do we find different ways to concede.
Apart from one decent save Steele done nothing to warrant starting again. His kicking is worse than Pants!
Wague is total dross and Grabbans hold up play and decision making is woeful.
Can't really see where we go from here. Wednesday are bang average and making us look like amateurs.

Red Fred

1.) 09 Apr 2019 21:42:28
I agree but where do we go now ? Remember a side not far from this one beat , Middlesbrough, drew with Norwich WBA Leeds beat Derby . Something is wrong

Absolute dross!!

16 Mar 2019 15:28:12
Someone please correct me if I'm wrong but what the hell are we hoping to achieve by going to Portman Road to face the bottom placed team and starting with 9 defensively minded players?
We need wins, what have we got to lose at this stage?

Red Fred

1.) 16 Mar 2019 16:09:55
Benalouane, Darikwa, Yates, Lolley, Osborn, and Murphy all like to get forward when given the chance.


2.) 16 Mar 2019 16:21:46
Subs will be on soon


3.) 16 Mar 2019 16:52:20
My last away game never look like a decent team frustrated down hearted can't even say we're unlucky I'd get shut of 7 of our players thought we'd see some quality with o Neil and kean in charge unfortunately for the fans we don't have that quality in the team sorry guysfeel let down

Bob Hope with either Red always.
Westwood back in favour since Luhukay was sacked and Heaton back to being Burnley's No.1.

If that's true then it's very likely going to be adios.
Our record at the Den stinks.
We're probably going to need to be 3 goals up again to get a result cus as soon as Millwall get desperate and bring Morrison on then the aerial bombardment begins and we're done for.
We couldn't defend a 2 goal lead in the home fixture.

Why?
They will be relegated by then and we'll be in the automatic promotion places.

Shame he didn't choose Birmingham instead.
Not really excited by this one.
2 decent seasons in his career and probably past his best now.
Villa fans didn't rate him very highly as went missing in big games.
Then there's that ridiculous beard! Oh dear.

Of course Salah is good but he's not even in the same cosmos as Messi so for you to say what you did is ridiculous.
Like the one about the cyclists though 🀣.
Now you come to mention it I do seem to do the majority of my posting when we lose. Guess i love a good moan and I leave the rest of you to wax lyrical when we win.
Really pissed off about this season though. A few rough ends of the stick decision wise in games and the run of 4 straight defeats a few games ago put paid to our season which could so easily have seen us in the play-offs.
Ah well, onto next season.

After all the clamour to give Yates a chance in the side maybe we can now put it to bed. After a couple of early promising performances he's now been found out as bang average.
He wouldn't get in any other championship side!
Why O'Neil chose to take Yacob off and move Cash into centre mid to accommodate appiah is anyone's guess. If it was to see how Cash performed there then I hope he's seen enough lol. It was painful to watch him squander possession and get knocked off the ball (leading to the second goal) all too often.
Some very strange decisions all round.

Ff,You keep spouting on about Karanka bringing in dross and the imbalance of the squad but this team was competing well early doors. Remember West Brom in the first game? Some of the best football I've seen in years.
A good manager would get a tune out of this lot. Look at Bruce. Wednesday were awful under Luhukay and had the worst defenses in the championship. Bruce comes in and with the same squad has one defeat in twelve games with 8 clean sheets.
Defensive injuries have blighted our season along with the constant changing of managers.
