When's Ya Ya coming?


1.) 08 Sep 2018 00:05:15
You never know as it is the 'climax" of his career 🀣🀣🀣

2.) 08 Sep 2018 09:19:43
I think big Yayas arrival would herald the climax of AKs managerial career

3.) 08 Sep 2018 16:07:43
Maybe it's the second coming!

4.) 08 Sep 2018 17:56:47
haven`t you lot got anything better to do than moan we have only played a handful of games in the hardest division in the world

5.) 08 Sep 2018 23:16:56
Well I renewed my season card for Β£470 and still having to tune in to itv to watch the "x factor"πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

6.) 09 Sep 2018 02:54:41
Feeling hard done by then ff?

7.) 09 Sep 2018 08:49:48
I'm 36,dodgy knee,not played in a couple of seasons,can play holding mid
Do you guys think AK would be interested?
Thinking 40k a week should cover my wages.
Posting my CV on to the city ground now.
Onward and upwards ;)

8.) 09 Sep 2018 10:21:09
I'm 53,and can play "Sweeper" (remember that term??)
I'd be like Rudi Kroll!!!

9.) 09 Sep 2018 10:43:34
Lol both of us are over the 35 mark,perfect signing for AK :)

10.) 09 Sep 2018 15:49:53
Dear Mr.Karanka,
I’m 45, can speak a little Spanglish. I also played as a defensive midfielder at a Semipro level. I’m also asthmatic but I’ll run my legs off for Β£10,000 per week. oh, I also forgot to mention one leg is shorter than the other, but I could run rings around the opposition. Plus i wear Mr. Magoo glasses these days so I may give the ball away at times.

I look forward to hearing from you for a trial.
Kind regards,
Fawazs bank balance.

P.s. Do you ever give orders to your players whilst on the touch line and do you go to Topknot for your hairdo?

11.) 09 Sep 2018 16:51:20
Hilarious mate!!!

12.) 09 Sep 2018 17:07:13
I was top striker in my last team. Pretty sure I could do a job. Only snag is I’m 49 now and team was Jesse Boot junior school. I’m sure they still rate me.

13.) 09 Sep 2018 22:56:33
Rogie Red, sweeper my position 2. Franco Baresi my inspiration but luckily I had a bit of Des Walker's pace to make up for my footballing limitations. 51 now and still tempted to get fit for 1 more season in the Liverpool Vets League. Luckily no one will have me.πŸ˜πŸ‘

14.) 10 Sep 2018 13:03:04
Had a bit of pace aswell mate,for someone who's 5'5" I could leap like a Salmon!!! (And no,I didn't play like one lol!!)
Some of the young guys I work with go on about "3D pitches",their yellow boots,rub downs by their physio's etc. they even said they never use Deep Heat,as they "hate the smell"???
That smell meant everything to me!!! It really got me buzzing for the game ahead.
Those were the days 😟😟😟

15.) 10 Sep 2018 15:57:44
I am 53 and the only sweeping I can now manage is the patio!

16.) 10 Sep 2018 16:42:45
Same here!!!

17.) 10 Sep 2018 17:51:55
Rogie, embrocation! Now that stuff stank. 5'7.5" and I got the ugly centre half to win the headers, I swept up the rest. It's left me with my good looks too.πŸ˜πŸ‘

18.) 10 Sep 2018 19:31:41
Β£20 to watch a Championship football match in the box seats and still some are complaining?

Good night for our loanees ,will any of them get a chance to have a career with us no matter how well they do?


1.) 05 Sep 2018 00:57:11
Most of them are doing well in lower leagues though

2.) 05 Sep 2018 07:02:19
Some might have a chance of a career with us but only if we are relegated!

3.) 06 Sep 2018 00:02:23
All they can do is keep playing well and scoring and hope the manager gives them a chance before hiring dads army.πŸ€”



22 Aug 2018 14:12:24
Guess what ,were reportedly intrested in a M/F player ,
Seems money no object to AK .


1.) 22 Aug 2018 15:35:36
Must think he's a better player than the 13 million pound man or better than the other 11 midfielders we have. 😁

2.) 22 Aug 2018 19:57:24
Skegs, please get with the programme.

There are 4 more targeted to come in and 4 from the current squad go out on loan in addition to those already told they are not in the squad.

There has clearly been an under achieving mindset from previous regimes which has to change.

So there is no point on setting short deadlines for success as it will take time to build over the first half of the season. No rose tinted specs just reality, hard work and positive not negative fan support!

Onward and Upward

3.) 22 Aug 2018 22:55:28
Lol red πŸ™„ I'm not asking for a deadline to success but but to a bit of progression would be nice with all the money he has been given also I still can't believe you're blaming the managers before after whole new team plus bought in by Mr chosen one and just because some of us don't bow and throw roses at the feet of the chosen one and don't always agree how does that make fans negative just reality and stating the obvious 😜



28 Jul 2018 23:19:26
Saw two Forests today, the Portugese one played with Finesse, then the English players came on with a more physical approach, which one is the way forward in the Championship in an English winter?


1.) 29 Jul 2018 08:59:59
I saw one Forest today playing good football with a good blend of hard work and flair very positive performance

2.) 29 Jul 2018 09:27:25
A combination of the two.

3.) 29 Jul 2018 11:00:37
We play with the style and mix it up that Wolves did last season, we have got the squad!

If we don,t go on a run now I think AK has burnt his bridges ,you don,t bite the hand that feeds you [ and your brother ]




20 Oct 2018 17:51:57
If you can,t take it don,t dish it out !
Old English saying

Hope Super Bock is on tap at Skegs local !


1.) 20 Oct 2018 13:37:40
This is the life sat outside the Southbank in the sun blowing the froth off a few,football returns three points and all is well.🍻🍻🍻



15 Oct 2018 08:47:25
Let's start the day with a moan,it,s been said McKay and Cummings were allowed to leave because they made little impact but stats show this time last year they,d made more impact than the 3 Iberians have this time round ,as Greavesie used to say ,it,s a funny old game?


1.) 15 Oct 2018 09:51:48
AK wants a certain character in his squad, McKay lightweight and not up for the fight, Cummings obviously still immature. This leads to the question of Ollie Burke being available in Jan, do we want him back? Could he be a bad egg though?

2.) 15 Oct 2018 10:09:07
What stats? We are a much stronger team without them and Scots are technically inferior!
The Scotland results without these two tell you all you need to know about stats and that they have found their level?

3.) 15 Oct 2018 12:38:58
Stats are too ambiguous to read too much into.

4.) 15 Oct 2018 14:17:40
I agree to some extent but the Brentford owner uses stats in order to buy and loan players which they have done fairly well by.

{Ed001's Note - that's not the full story, they used to do that, but they found they were not always identifying the right players by the pure use of stats. Now they use the stats in order to identify the players to scout. Matthew Bentham would love to just use stats, as he made his fortune out of stats analysis and it is his company that provides the stats the team use.}

5.) 15 Oct 2018 14:28:47
I was obviously not aware of that, you learn something new every day. Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - it has been a developing process and part of the reason Mark Warburton and co left the club, as they wanted to move away from the stats. Brentford brought a guy from Bentham's Danish club Midtjylland (I hope that is spelt right!) to take charge of recruitment and he has changed it significantly. It does still rely heavily on stats to identify most of the players they sign, but they no longer sign without repeated scouting too.}

6.) 15 Oct 2018 16:45:59
Neither Cummings or McKay were good enough mentally or physically to get it done consistently over a championship season.

Thankfully we don't accomodate lightweights at the club anymore.

7.) 15 Oct 2018 17:13:06
Without the ability to man manage stats count for very little.

8.) 15 Oct 2018 18:19:37
Are we missing them?scored more without them got more points on the board.its a no from me

9.) 15 Oct 2018 19:04:18
It is debatable, would they play better with the new players we have. Without AK having tried them with the new players we will never know.

10.) 16 Oct 2018 10:49:25
Stats stats stats. Football isn't all about stats, if it was I'd be winning a lot more money on my accas at the weekend.

11.) 16 Oct 2018 13:28:47
Who is the main man at a club of course it,s the manager and it,s his job to get players to perform consistantly,the reason we been out of the big time for so long is not having the right manager ,let's hope this time we have but the jury's still out on AK ,seems to me he,s not given everyone a fair crack but let's hope this dosen,t kill morale because team spirit is so vital and when the manager as they say loses the dressing room it,s all over .

12.) 17 Oct 2018 20:22:07
Stats? Who was it that said football isn't played on paper?

13.) 19 Oct 2018 10:22:15
I think Cummings still has some potential and it was his immature attitude that turned AK off which is why he got loaned out as if he grows up he potential could still be seen in Garabaldi one day but after a amazing start on loan he has faded and isn’t even starting many games which I wonder if that is due to attitude! McKay was light weight and though had a few tricks up his sleeve I think his attitude was awful. Looked like he didn’t care and was lazy and moody towards end of last season. Dias, Carvalho etc have much more positive attitudes and better work ethic.
