I am always optimistic in July. What's the point of being a footie fan if you're not? I was hopeful last July but after 15 minutes of the first game (Millwall should have been 2 or 3 up by then) reality soon dawned. With some quality signings, this time things should be much better but we have yet to kick a ball in anger. Fingers crossed.

My optimism will be heightened if we can close out the deal for Byram.Hopefully then it's just a case of fine tuning.COYRs!

Time now for everyone to nail their colours to the Forest mast for the forthcoming season?

Thumbs Up if you believe AK will get us into a Top 6 finish with this and the impending additions to the squad?

Thumbs Down if you disagree?

As we are constantly reminded by some on this forum that this is a banter site then an explanation from those who disagree should get some healthy banter going before the real business starts!

Mine is a Thumbs Up for the reason that this season AK (other than Bruce) has the best CV for success in the Championship plus has put in place one of the most experienced / best spines of any of the teams and combined it with flair and pace.

Still not sure mate, we have to get a good start - something we’re not very good at. Have we sorted out our pathetic defensive frailties yet. I hope so red - we so deserve a good season. I’ve gone thumbs down as i think there is still a lot to do .

Agree2 0Disagree

22 Jul 2018 21:40:00
No controversy this time red but if I were going to have a bet my money would be on stoke.
They have made money and then spent wisely on players to get them back.
I think we have on paper made some great signings, but still apprehensive about wether you can bring so many players in such a short time and make it work.
It's not negative just an opion and Bruce and pulls have a better cv.
But the old brigade are getting older and maybe their methods are getting outdated.
So in my opinion we've tried being cheapskate and it's got us knowhere,so the owners are going for it and have backed karanka,so now it's all down to him.
Let's hope it works out and we see success again it's long overdue.

Wouldn’t take too much store by this thumbs up/down stuff,seems to me if you wrote on here the world is round some kind sole would give you the thumbs down!

I will let you know red in 10 games time we have the players now so hopefully onwards and upwards

Well Stevie you have certainly got it sussed.
Everyone knows it's flat otherwise you'd fall off.
Don't try kidding a kidder.🤣🤣🤣

Well ff no fooling you mate, word of advice, next time you go to the boozer go to the nearest one, if you go to the 1 a bit further up the road you might fall off the edge , and we wouldn’t want that would we now!!

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jul 2018 23:28:59
Might get shot down in flames for this but anything top half will do me it's a whole new squad and could potentially take a while to gel look at top managers first seasons most of the time there a bit wobbly and that's with an open cheque book then the second season there unstoppable take pep at man city for example the difference is they were given time because of the reputation something that doesn't happen much in the championship

Well Stevie I went to the furthest one today at cranfleet lock in long eaton,great walk of bike ride four pints for £10,Yes I do have friends😀.

I agree with skegs. Now he has the team he wants it's time for AK to come up with the goods. If he thinks that their warm-up for the Oldham game was not serious enough then why didn't he step in and deal with it there and then? There's no excuse for poor discipline however it occurs. If we are unhappy after 10 games then it's back to the same old same old.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Jul 2018 09:36:25
Back 4 is a concern for me.Figs not played yet.Worrall only just back from injury.Robinson,don't know much about him.Right back situation? Darikwa not played much and Karanka making it known he wants another right back.
All a bit disjointed for me and I think defensively things will take time to settle.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jul 2018 10:17:32
Perks13 I am not too concerned with back four.You've not mentioned Dawson and don't forget Danny Fox improved massively. And I am confident Sam Byram is on his way also.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jul 2018 12:27:20
Get what your saying Sgetty but how many games have Dawson and Fox played together? You can't just throw a back 4 together no matter how good they are and expect it to work.2 games til start of the season won't be enough either. I'm expecting a steady to start to the season and that it might take 10 games for the team to gel.

Agree1 1Disagree

23 Jul 2018 13:10:55
Not just the back four that's being thrown together it's a whole team perks.his starting line-up will be interesting can only see pants colback Watson cash and grabban being definite starters,with so much midfield flair might take a while to find the right blend and a lot of chopping and changing.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Jul 2018 13:34:05
Agree with both Perks and Ff. I must admit that I've never been an advocate of "hitting the ground running" . It will take time for so many new faces to gel but I feel more optimistic than I have done for many years.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Jul 2018 13:42:25
Agreed 79. Suppose what I'm getting at is that defensively we might not be as solid as some might think we will be.This doesn't mean the players or manager are poor it just means it will take time.I'm still quietly confident it will be ok.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Jul 2018 14:08:27
Think that's why he's got colback in again as he knows he can trust the pair to protect the back four,Other than suspension or injury think those two will be first on the team sheet.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Jul 2018 14:29:01
As a matter of interest who'd be your back four Ff?

Pre-orders available for collection 25th, postal orders 2 days later. As pre-orders were over subscribed, maybe a shortage of kits for a while, especially medium and large. Hope that helps?

Didn't realise that Rob Huth has been released by the bin dippers. Anyone else think he's worth a year at Forest if he's over his injury problem from last season? 33 years old but could do a decent job for us I reckon. Good in the air so maybe help us to stop conceding from set-pieces.

Dirty as they come and nothing but a cheat.
Got found out last season when not allowed to grapple in the box, grab shirts and be dishonest which were his strengths. No he can’t cheat he’s not as effective.
Fitted in well with Festers dirty, cheating style of play.

Agree4 0Disagree

22 Jul 2018 20:42:04
Defenders now have to be able to play the ball out from the back not the player! That is why Huth is on his bike and why Wes Shovel Foot Morgan will not be coming home?

Time to move on with the AK Evolution!

Agree0 2Disagree

22 Jul 2018 21:44:51
Wes the shovel won a premier league title.
Bit more credit required there.

Agree0 2Disagree

22 Jul 2018 23:21:14
Oh yes how times have changed in two season s lol.genius in our mists?
Don't stand a chance then with Dawson being old school?
Rubbish red totally rubbish.
Football evolves but not that fast and certainly not when you sign a 34 year old to prove your point?
Good players are good players and wes and huth can wave a premier league title medal in your face and you wouldn't have an answer.
Dawson huth and wes are solid players and leaders and let's leave it at that🤔🤔

Agree0 1Disagree

22 Jul 2018 09:15:46
I’m glad traore is leaving as we need players off the books and he’s too injury prone. When he played he always gave 100% and was certainly no worse than Worral the wobble, another who needs game time on loan to see if he can improve his game. If last season is anything to go by he’s not good enough

Agree7 1Disagree

22 Jul 2018 09:30:56
2ster last season worrell had a different back four every other week. And a midfield that didn't protect the defence.
I'd play him this season alongside Dawson an fig in a back 3.
He will improve massively. Burnley offered 10m for him. So dyke obviously saw how good he can be.

Agree5 3Disagree

22 Jul 2018 10:09:11
Yes point proved entirely there, Worral was bad because the others were but no chance that the others were bad because they were carrying worrall? We obviously watched a different team to each other last year. That defence improved significantly when Worrall was dropped. I doubt dyche offered any where near that and if he did we were fools not to sell.
All that said though I agree entirely that if there is a big player in there Dawson will help nuture it. It’d be amazing if cash, Worrall and Brereton come good . I think we need them too as that academy can’t be justified unless it produces regularly. Hopefully burke, lascelles and Carole have funded it and some recently.

Agree5 0Disagree

22 Jul 2018 11:48:24
2star worrall has at the moment the unfortunate tendency to drop at least 1 game changing clanger every time he plays, i’m personally giving him the benefit of the doubt because he’s still learning, sometimes he looks quality, a season around Dawson will be career changing for him ,plenty to learn but definitely 1for the future in my opinion

Agree4 1Disagree

22 Jul 2018 12:19:11
Spot on as always Stevie.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jul 2018 14:12:59
I would agree on the views expressed here re Worrall and last season ( particularly in tandem with Smith ) he was guilty of a fair few major errors.

He would not be my first choice but I hope that a season as " understudy " to Dawson should be of benefit to him.
That said I personally think that he lacks pace and can be quite easily turned which are physical attributes that he needs to improve upon.

As to the supposed 10 million offer from Burnley I think that may well have been pretty good business but perhaps it was an early indication that we are no longer in the position of having to sell to survive/invest.

Roll on Bristol ( £32 a ticket seems steep but I think we may well find a lot of clubs hiking our tickets up ) and

As always .


Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jul 2018 14:41:30
The defence improved when the likes of bridgcutt Watson colbeck came. Before they came it was like the allimo at times under warburton. And yes worrell and others did make mistakes. And when Uve got a shit midfield and crap fullbacks to play alongside. Mistakes you will make covering for other players. Wether you John terry tony Adams des walker berasi if Uve got rubbish in front of you doesn't matter how good u are. Worrell a young lad and will improve immensely this season

Agree2 1Disagree

22 Jul 2018 20:49:48
Worrall is a class act otherwise he would not being developed under the new England set up.

Lascelles looked ropey when paired with some our previous back four but has developed into the best uncapped defender in the Premiership.

Many have laid into the fact that he has not been picked by AK but in one of his latest interviews its clear that Worrall has had a fitness issue since the back end of the season.

We will be playing 3 at the back when on the front foot and he will be first pick with Daws and Figs.


Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jul 2018 21:25:27
The defence improved because of colback and Watson,but the attack suffered for it,hence how many games we went without scoring.
Its all about finding the right balance,Not individuals.
