Ben watson expected to sign after the Fulhsm gsme. Positve talks held at the academy. Will be great for us.

rutland red1

Him and Coleback would be a couple of firebrands in midfield, along with Bridcutt I can see our work-rate going up.I don't know how Bouchalakis is going to fit in. There will be a lot of question-marks over our present players by the summer.

2.) 02 Feb 2018 17:34:50
I can't see where osborn and dowell are going to fit in

3.) 02 Feb 2018 18:30:22
Really Dowell is one of the best players we have

4.) 02 Feb 2018 21:03:36
Dowell is a luxury,which is fine when your playing well and winning.
His problem is he goes missing in games,sometimes for 70 mins then might pull a thunderbolt out of the blue.
Other than a big deflected goal against wolves,he has not played well for a while.
Needs to put a full shift in,but then you have to take into account he's been in a side that has a unbalanced midfield with four being left footed on everymatchday.
Should be more balanced now,but i'd leave him out tomorrow in favour of ged colback osborn cash and tomlin.
Stronger players against a very good side in great form.

5.) 02 Feb 2018 21:07:06
He is very talented i will give him that. he's a luxury player if the teams playing well he does well other than that he's very lazy

6.) 03 Feb 2018 08:12:45
Your right ff. we now have pit ponies as well as show ponies.

7.) 03 Feb 2018 11:42:41
New guys aside as I don't know about them, Dowell is the only one who can hit a decent free kick.

8.) 03 Feb 2018 13:24:04
As well as a dodgy corner 🙄

9.) 03 Feb 2018 21:22:20
Like i said should have left Dowell out,snowboater who plays for himself,not the team.

10.) 04 Feb 2018 11:58:13
Dowell needs to be dropped for a few games.

11.) 04 Feb 2018 14:57:29
Lol what's a snowboater it sounds good craic 😂



27 Jan 2018 22:31:22
At least now their can be no argument. Karanka has given him a chsnce and he has taken it. I told you all Velios is not crap well done karanka.

rutland red1

1.) 28 Jan 2018 06:39:53
Just seen the goal, great finish. Playing brereton ahead of velios has cost us .

2.) 28 Jan 2018 09:48:49
Two bad defensive errors cost us.
I said it was game over at half time.

3.) 28 Jan 2018 14:28:21
Ff79 you seemed happy with the line up yesterday. You then thriugh what you saw changed your tone. Was it really that bad???

4.) 28 Jan 2018 16:16:41
Rutland. Nearly everyone thought it was a positive line up. We even convinced ourselves that Carayol might be part of a master plan. We sat or stood mainly and watched absolute garbage.

5.) 28 Jan 2018 16:51:12
Ff79 i do not get csryol. He always looks liks he is limping either thst or he has one leg shorter than the other. For sure Karanka will have his eyes open now. Its so disrespectful to 4000 travelling fans for that to ever happen again.

6.) 28 Jan 2018 21:03:34

Karanka will have Carayol out the door as he had his eyes opened at Boro with him. He has no work ethic or courage and is good for about 20 mins a game on a good day!

He'd be better off in the French league where he will get more space.

7.) 28 Jan 2018 22:22:19
Rutland I was happy with the line up,the problem is they didn't turn up yet again.
They win a game against the top side in the league and follow it up with a shocker,been doing it for too long now,It's inexcusable big clearout required as they don't have the mental strength to succed

8.) 29 Jan 2018 05:15:31
Mental strength that's a good point. These next 4 days are going to be interesting. What does karanka do??? Stick or twist????

9.) 29 Jan 2018 08:36:31
On that performance twist.
Boukalkis fox Carayol definite non starters for me and and Dowell and Brereton dropping to the bench.



21 Jan 2018 13:46:46
Karanka has said we will finish the window with a stronger squad than we have now. That was after the game yesterday so he must have soms agreements in place!

rutland red1

1.) 21 Jan 2018 14:17:07
Great News, and in the Red door walks.?

2.) 21 Jan 2018 14:21:41
Could also mean Worrall and Brereton are going nowhere as well as

3.) 21 Jan 2018 14:58:20
All we need to do to have a stronger squad at the end of the window is sell Mills?

4.) 21 Jan 2018 15:21:06
Ha ha good one

5.) 21 Jan 2018 16:23:43
Finishing the window stronger could just mean the players he has will improve in their right positions, not necessarily any more additions to the squad. Unless of course McKay or someone else leaves. Personally I think we have a good talented squad who can keep us up, even though there still will be ups and downs in terms of results. Let's work with what we've got and not expect some sort of single saviour to come in and put everything right all of a sudden.

6.) 21 Jan 2018 16:33:52
He may also mean that they will be mentally stronger following this and the Arsenal results and their new found team ethic.
That or we have some decent players coming in. maybe he is close to someone arriving.
Clayton please!!

7.) 21 Jan 2018 16:43:43
I think he will add two this window. One central defender and one strong chsracter in midfield. We have no cover for worral or bridcutt. Personally manciennd is no captain as he never ever speaks on the pitch so maybe expect a vociferous addition.

8.) 21 Jan 2018 18:02:07
Bsred, I think Karanka would like a general on the pitch. A strong character to lift the players if we are flagging, to enforce AK's directions. Clough had McGovern, AK trusts a player at Boro, I hope he gets his man.

9.) 21 Jan 2018 18:35:03
Billy (like him or hate him) sought out & got McKenna. We've had no-one since other than CC but always injured.

10.) 21 Jan 2018 19:02:09
Mancienne might not be a captain but we are a much better team when he’s in the back 4.

11.) 21 Jan 2018 19:32:59
Never saw McGovern give the team a lift ,like Mance just got on with his job and led by example.
Others in a that side were much much more vocal than McGovern ,you don,t have to bawl and shout to be skipper you need the others respect.

12.) 21 Jan 2018 20:14:55
Captains work in different ways, a crunching tackle to set the tone of a game, encouraging defensive shape, scoring a whopper. You could be the best player but a rubbish captain, I like a talker who praises, chastises, rollocks and encourages, a conductor on the pitch. We don't have that but I believe we would be that stronger side, if we could sign such a player.

13.) 21 Jan 2018 21:17:23
Carlo mancienne struggles with concentration. His communication with colleagues is ziltch. He is not a bad player but then he is not a great player. Captain material nope.

14.) 21 Jan 2018 22:32:33
Not a massive Fox fan but he was talking up the youngsters all game yesterday, good stuff from him.

15.) 21 Jan 2018 22:46:55
There's no great players at mid table championship clubs.

16.) 22 Jan 2018 00:05:58
You can have great players in any league and at any standard, the problem is keeping hold of them and trying to make sure the clubs get something out of them ie . Promotion or cash in the bank.

17.) 22 Jan 2018 00:58:28
Have said for a while that it is ridiculous that the only player I see every game shouting and talking to everyone all the time is young Joe Worrall!
None of our players who have worn the armband lately are overly vocal, Manchienne, Lichij or Mills. No matter what position a leader is something we need.

18.) 22 Jan 2018 13:09:17
All that means is mills will be sold 👍

19.) 22 Jan 2018 14:13:07
Who is going to buy Mills and pay 10 g a week ,perhaps Dougiie will take him to CP ?



19 Jan 2018 07:02:24
Karanka has denied bidding for clayton saying he is concentrating on " my own players "
That would indicate no signings this window. Brave man?

rutland red1

1.) 19 Jan 2018 08:51:57
lets wait and see shall we.

2.) 19 Jan 2018 10:26:43
Suttonpete: the worst thing would be to panic buy players who are cheap but are journeymen with no real talent as we have done in the past. Maybe we should just stick with our own lads, and bring a few more youngsters into the side.

3.) 19 Jan 2018 11:11:08
Wasn’t wanting more youngsters in one of the reasons MW and co got the sack? We need experienced Championship players but I don’t hold out much hope of getting the Boro lads, they are the type of players we need.Not much time left to get deals done.

4.) 19 Jan 2018 11:23:33
I think Karanka mentioned we had a very young side and suggested that going forwards he would address this so we are more balanced with experience as well.

I'd be surprised if we don't see 1 or 2 in during this window, there is probably more going on behind the scenes than we know, duck swimming analogy and all that.

12 days is loads of time:)

5.) 19 Jan 2018 11:58:05
I have not assumed anything or stated he should or should not. I have never panicked being a forest fan, my glass is always half full and try and remain optimistic. I am certainly not one of these calling for a managers head every time we are on a losing run. We obviously need some improvement, but that comes over time. let's not forget were we were last season!!

6.) 19 Jan 2018 13:00:43
got to agree Gingerkid
We should be pleased that we are being more professional as a club not like the Fawaz days.
There is plenty of time to bring in the right players to improve the team

7.) 19 Jan 2018 13:01:22
Let's not forget there is more than one team we can buy players from 😂

8.) 19 Jan 2018 13:23:33
From what I have read, we have shown interest in the Boro players, but can't match or compete with the wages. If we get some players out first, it then frees up some money for wages.

9.) 19 Jan 2018 13:29:36
Daz - I don't think one of the reasons MW got sacked was for bringing youngsters in??? he got some youngsters in and then tried to get them to play out of position or in a different way. Bit like a site manager getting sparkies to do the plumbing :)

10.) 19 Jan 2018 13:58:19
2Tone I was trying to highlight the fact that MW wanted to bring in “more” young players to go with what we already have and the powers that be didn’t agree with that.So it was not “the” reason but apparently it was one of them.



18 May 2017 16:45:00
On bbc its a done deal. Got great vision for the future. Here's hoping.

Just read the notice on the club website re on social media ref the Derby game and thought here we go the politically correct brigade sanitising our wonderful game. But as i read i found it awful that we have to be warned not to sing about childrens deaths and the passing of ND. I love the rivalry in football, banter the funny goading chants. But do our and counties supporters have that level of hate to stoop so low?
I doubt its anyone on here as its generally a greaf place to vent. So come on ALL you fans red or black, let's extend the spirit of xmas, keep it jovial set the standards and represent our great club in the most glorious of lights.
Let Xmas start here.

Unfortunately sheep have small heads which is why they follow in flocks and some forests are very dense!

2.) 14 Dec 2018 19:49:14
Take a look at the Xmas Carol by the forest fan on you tube,then make your mind up Rutland.
As long as you don't mind some swearing though 😀😀

3.) 14 Dec 2018 22:45:13
I think it's an awful shame that people need reminding what is offensive to others,whether it is written or spoken or sang! People that are prepared to stoop so low are not fans of football or anything else that resembles decency!For those who cannot differentiate between banter or being offensive,I would say this. KEEP YOUR THOUGHTS TO YOURSELF!

4.) 15 Dec 2018 07:42:34

5.) 15 Dec 2018 10:39:29
Football crowds are reknowned for chanting all the wrong or unPC things, and it's not going to stop anytime soon. However it's only a very small majority who act like bottom apertures.

6.) 15 Dec 2018 14:04:11
The problem is that the minority can taint the image of the majority.

7.) 15 Dec 2018 17:22:32
I remember when they used to say a small minority caused football violence,strange how it never looked like a ‘small ‘ minority if you bumped into them I’m the street!

8.) 15 Dec 2018 19:08:41
Even cloughie couldn't stop fans from swearing and he tried hard enough,it's not just restricted to football and it won't change,if ever there was a chance to show it's not acceptable,the time is now by locking up those Chelsea "fans" for a couple of years.

9.) 15 Dec 2018 20:55:35
The answer is that if people of caught saying racist, homophobic or any violence at or around a football game you should be banned for life from entering any public arena for any sport, I hate it when u see fans sticking 2 fingers up and wanker jestures at opposition players, do these people go down the street sticking there fingers up at people - no - so why at a football game?

10.) 15 Dec 2018 21:17:13

02 Dec 2018 11:59:43
I watched AK pre match interview 2 days prior to game, he looked upbeat. Have watched post ipswich and it was awful. Have listened to your comments ff and 2star and you could right. But personally AK was sending a coded message to us. Something is afoot. Watch this space.
I sincerely hope its just a reaction to injuries.

rutland red1



29 Nov 2018 14:22:32
We certainly have a nrver say die s
Attitude and in Lolley Yackob Grabban and colback we have absolute quality. You have to salute the resiliance and mental attitude of the players and their togetherness. Well done karanka.
However pantimillon is still the clown many on here seem to think. So flat footed with no attempt at coming for crosses. Hd looks about 5'6" in the goal and acts it. For gods dake sort this out AK. Darikwa looked poor again lastnight just when i thought he was growing into the position. Dawson was solid and i thought the syraight red for figarado was a foul and msybe a booking no more. Villa had 2 disallowed which one was dubious so more work to do at the back. Certainly carvallaho is forging an understanding which is excellent. So our big weak link is Pants, a more mobile keeper with better presence and distribution is key.

Sick to death of these meaningless international breaks. Saturday is club football end of. Nowt worth talking about on here either. Have stopped watching international football as its all the same keepy footbal no goalmouth action. this is the 3rd break and its only early november. Boring!

Its just the passion in football. Your team and " when saturday comes " the excitement of a saturday in winter is second to none. Not sure if its my age but weds nights were for internationals, an enjoyable addition to the weekly dust up thst is club football. I also think with the corporate element the self adoring FA and dreary southgate it is so over hyped. Nothing these days comes close to matchday even if its conducted by mr one dimensional😂😂

Should play international matches at the end of season. With no breaks during the season it could be finished by end of March and the qualifiers be played up until early May then the summer break.

Worth watching the discussion on MOTD with Gullit and Murohy regardjng playjng 4 3 3.
Top 3 unbeaten in prem play this system. Its no wonder that Lampard has adopted this at Derby. Like i said last week its such a flexible malluable way of playing. As Gullit says its very effective and encourages attractive attacking football offering vital trisngles and greater options. Coincidently its only Man Utd that play with 2 holding midfielders.

Pantimilon can beclme a cult hero for sure. A clown status who despite his awful failings could be part of a promotion winning team. As for the others you mention RIE I won't change my opinion on the 3 amigos. Carvalho is getting better every game but is still not worth 13.5 mil. Dias and gonclaves banh average. but on a positive note the team has bonded so well and in Lolley and colback we have prem players. Graban is doing the difficult thing easily, banging in the gifts. I was a Karanka doubter, but admit I was wrong. His determination has shone through. Maybe it eas the threat from marikinakis who knows. But he is starting to change things at home too and FF79 predicted well in that geddy would come in for Yacob and Hef for Figs. so pleasantly surprised by the unity in this team and Karanka should take a bow. Defeat is not taken lightly.

Pants is the worst goalie i have ever seen let alone at our club. I christened him a clown some time ago. Has he come for a cross yet or has his roots gotten longer. He stands between the sticks like quasimodo wearing a jacket thst is too small and its raining. He then turns sroubd to see the ball nestling in the net. Is steel that bad in training???
On 2 df mids on sat, AK probably wanted more protection for a makeshift back four. That worked then.
