Ups and downs, consistent with a competitive league. For all of AK's 'brilliance' achieving the Boro result, sandwiched by the poor Millwall and Norwich games. Soon be Xmas, then we'll all have a clearer picture. Manager for a full season and still in or around the play offs or more upheaval. I know what I'm hoping for. FTID.

Can understand the manager going on about the forest fans it's true we get behind the team at the wrong times, beginning of the game great if we score great, but when we are struggling or lose a goal nothing that's when we need to get behind our beloved forest. I don't want to here the away fans singing. so let's drown them out.

totally agree
Its easy to be singing and noisy when winning.
Support is about helping the team in tough moments
Lets wait for the I want to be entertained before I sing or make a noise brigade to reply though

Most grounds in the country will go quiet when their team is under the cosh like we were for most of the 2nd half yesterday, crowds feed off the intent of their team,far to often our team is in a negative mode so the crowd reflects that by being subdued

Agree4 2Disagree

21 Oct 2018 17:06:44
Absolutely rubbish crowds are responsive to the team as are the team responsive to the crowd we are sometimes lacking as a crowd to spurr the team on
We should be the12th man but we fall short

Agree1 6Disagree

21 Oct 2018 17:38:59
If a teams under cosh The crowd can get them lifted easily.
Imagine it being quiet as a player then suddenly 20.000 fans start singing. It gives most players that extra spring in their step Which can be the twelth man

Well I got to say lads around me in A block never stop singing it’s the area of the ground where the bloke who is lecturing us took his name from the Trent end that let's the ground down most and anyway all this is garbage the players should do the business with or without fan noise it’s karanka deflecting the responsibility for yet another poor home display I don’t know what his win ratio is at the club but am guessing it must be disappointing.

Your all right and your all wrong yes the fans could be the 12th man and lift the side but what they can't do is pick the players for the team and decide who comes on and who Gos off as subs and if the football had been more attacking like at Middlesbrough than sitting bloody back we would of gone on to win that game without the 12th man trying to lift the team there was only one person to blame for yesterday and that was the manager he's like Jekyll and Hyde you don't know what he's going to be doing week from week apart from pick the 3 amigos 2 of which should be bench starts every game or just send them back to there parent clubs we will see what happens in the next game probably win 8 nil

Good post skeg. Decisions yesterday lacked Decisiveness across the board. The goal keeper and the defence lack faith in each other and the goals we concede show a total lack of telepathy between them (an essential trait for success). We looked ok for ten mins early doors, thereafter Norwich unpicked us slowly but surely, a bit of master class really with goals scored at excellent times. Karanka’s take note please.

Supporters moans and observations
1 Manager blaming fans
2 Goalkeeper not commanding his area
3 Conceeding from corners
4 Not scoring from corners
5 Not playing two strikers
6 Birdcutt not playing
7 Dawson not playing
8 Taking off potential goal scorers
9 Jekell and Hyde performances
Sorry l said yesterday things look OK but what he said about fans is unfair, so next home game we give 100% support and we get another poor performance then what. Be patient all will OK, hope so. YOU REDS.

It won't be ok though until we sort out the problems created by this manager. All good sides ultimately build from the back. Our GK who the manager went out of his way to sign is dreadful and his performance stated the rot yesterday. Even in our best patch of the game he kicked 2 balls to Osborne that went way over his head. On the rare occasions he comes for crosses he's like a rabbit in headlights. He's doesn't ooze confidence and I'm sure defenders can sense it. Feel sorry for Smith he's no worse than Pantilkimon and he's been almost sent to Coventry. We need a quality keeper in January and then we might just start and build a platform to move forward on.

Did not mean yesterday's game, last half dozen. Darlow was afraid of crosses , what has happened to De Vries or similar name ,sorry for that. Is he still at Celtic.

Every time we get a full house and totally winnable game we choke. We were set up to defend not attack and we did it very badly. Without wanting to appear cocky i said in my previous post, that for this game i would play Fox at left back only because he is experienced in that position, poor old Osbourne was run ragged by Hernandez and Lewis all thru the second half. Pantilimon was awful and the two centre halfs drew their mistakes from his lack of decision making with regard to the endless set pieces we kept conceeding.

The decision to take lolley off was unexplainable imo Watson should have gone off and Cash brought on to give more energy in midfield. A catalogue of mistakes which Karanka needs to put right for Wed another winnable game.

Can't believe we started so well,then just crumbled!!!
So frustrating!!!

Agree3 0Disagree

21 Oct 2018 13:27:59
If it was a one off Rogie i would say it's frustrating but it isn't it happens to often.

Wrong team selections,players playing out of position,baffling substitutions and setting up not to lose games at home and then doing just that!

Bridcutt and Dawson should be nailed on starters every game along with Lolley for me.

Steele should start as well because the defenders don't trust Pant to do his job.

AK sort it out before Bolton please start those 3 and change the keeper please

Agree2 0Disagree

21 Oct 2018 13:35:13
We should have started with Janko at left back. With Osbourne and Cash in midfield (or perhaps Geddy) we look much more dynamic and positive.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Oct 2018 14:23:28
True mate,he should start to know who his best 11 are by now??
Really don't think he does,and yes Janko has been very impressive,and like Cash they are left out. totally baffling!!!

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Oct 2018 14:35:59
AK doesn't do dynamic and positive quite the opposite sedate and negative!

29,500 people in to see a gourmet feast of a match instead treated to a starter no main course and definatley no desert.


Same old same old, the only consistent thing with this team is inconsistency.

Bridcutt,Cash and Osbourne played in the right positions give us energy,ball winning and go forward Watson slows the game down and is a poor mans Colback imo

Can't fathom for the life of me why krankie played 2 defensive minded central midfielders at home. Mind boggling substitutions. As soon as Lolley hit the bar we stopped playing.

Was not at the game but followed it on bbc live txt. Same old story, team set up to hold not attack. Getting sick of karanka to be honest. Every time we get a big gate and seem on a roll he does the same old. He had a dig at the crowd, shame on you Karanka as these fans have been very vociferous in support of the team and you. Team selection still baffles and Pantimilon in particular. He cannit spot danger, is simply awful on crosses, cannot command his box and is as fragile as a box of eggs. Simply put a disaster.
I have read some of the stories around his management at Boro and it makes familiar reading. Arrogant and intollerant with players and systems. Taking off Lolley yesterday was a prediction i made to my wife and yes it happened. AK says he was tired yet Lolley was seething.
3 amigos again same old powder puff directionless rhetoric. No muscle and going sideways. Karvalho has something but is it enough to justify selection?

Only one person to blame for yesterday's awful performance and that is Karanka full stop . Just the same as last week's great result at Boro ,listening to his radio Nottingham interview on our way back from the match was unbelievable , I don't think he had watched the same game as us , but his attitude and arrogance towards the Forest fan's blaming them for that performance yesterday was unforgivable , I have never heard such utter contempt from a Forest manager in all my life , He was to blame for poor team selection its not the players fault ( Pants , Watson , Dias , ) in particular , also poor substitutions , then to also say that Joe Lolly was poor was beyond me , I wouldn't blame Lolly if he put in a transfer request , I don't like the man he doesn't deserve to be manager of our great club .

Agree6 5Disagree

Yesterday was just another dour performance from a dour manager. The fans need a bit more from the players to keep singing. He is so bang out of order with his comments. I still do not think he is the right fit for forest. We still get out run out muscled at home. Men against boys. Defence relying on luck these days and its running out.

Agree1 2Disagree

21 Oct 2018 09:43:01
Wolves have put out the same starting eleven for all their league matches. Does this mean they have a settled side. Not conceded in five until visit by Watford. You can only dream if l would do one change it would be our (stopper) .

Why is darikwa getting picked in front of janko? And why is pant getting picked at all.
Time for Steele to be given a chance.
If he doesn't take it. We need a keeper signing in January.

I think our defence got found out a bit today. Dreadfully weak at balls into the box. A winnable game I thought today - oh well.

We could of done with a big goalkeeper 😏

We had good defenders on the bench.
Robinson must share some of the blame today silly to be sent off in the last game and leave us short in the box.
I prefer Janko to Darikwa any day.

20 Oct 2018 21:06:30
Do we have a goalkeeping coach?
Haven't seen much evidence of it.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Oct 2018 21:15:34
We don't have a goalkeeper,just a static plank who gives no confidence to the team.
When karanka says the fans weren't there when needed, well he doesn't help with his poor distribution and a total lack of controlling his area.
Worst goalkeeper I've ever seen at this club.

20 Oct 2018 21:17:10
You couldn't coach that plank Carlo.

Figereido should e bought back in

Whenever Dawson is fit he should get into that team

Agree1 1Disagree

21 Oct 2018 09:18:03
I would agree chugs , heffele let's the man get in front of him and boxer shorts is rooted to his line. - a recipe for success for Norwich which they executed perfectly. Big well done to their fans as well - excellent support, top club in my eyes.
