Is Cafu?
a: an attacking midfielder.
b: a defensive midfielder.
c: a box to box midfielder.
d: none of the above.
Who on the Forest bench is constantly shouting his name throughout every game he plays?
I never hear any instructions shouted out to any of the players, even Cafu.
All I can hear all game is "Cafu, Cafu, Cafu".
Very strange.

Red Fred

Sub goalie. 😀😀.


2.) 27 Dec 2020 14:41:57
Cafu could be good but we will never know with both Yates and Sow never feeding him the ball.


3.) 28 Dec 2020 11:40:13
Cafu might be good at somthing but definitely not football, maybe he'd be good at running a cafu.


4.) 28 Dec 2020 17:09:50
Yes a very loud Cafoooooo Cafoooo! Sounds like Hughton to me. Seems like a willing player but not pulled up many trees yet.

A wins a win but I seriously believe we're relegation fodder after that performance.
First half was an improvement but some of the passing was still awful.
Players can't even choose the right studs. Maybe don't water the pitch as much before kick off?
We can't keep the ball for sustained periods, can't make simple passes, don't look fit compared to the opposition and don't get anywhere near enough players in the opposition box when attacking.

Red Fred

Fred i see your point. I only saw 2 min highlights and defensively it was a horror show. The awful thing i noticed was crosses from deep wide positions which should be easy to defend were not. The header from ohare, his run was unchallenged. I think overall its obvious the majority of the players are simply not up to it. Christie is a liability, still don't rAte the keeper, though he does make crucial saves with his feet. I think mckenna is sound taylor has something but needs support. Maybe as i now cannot see the whole games its unfair to make judgements but i do think unless Chris gets to keep his job or indeed wants it up to Jan window we are going to struggle. How precious those 3 lucky points were lastnight is anybodies guess.


2.) 05 Nov 2020 19:23:38
To be fair fred your post is just full of truths as to how we are playing.


3.) 08 Nov 2020 04:00:38
Since CH took over he has averaged 1.7 points per game so its not as bad as everyone thinks. And the team will only improve over time 👍.


4.) 08 Nov 2020 16:00:15
The biggest problem we have is our support, the negativity and misery it spreads is alarming. We lose they go into complete meltdown, we draw and supporters look at every mis timed pass, every slice, slip and miss. If we win, the opposition is criticised or comments are made that we are not good enough, or players are singled out. It’s driving me mad. I can handle us not playing well or even losing but it’s the morons on social media that frustrate me. Thank god Facebook, Twitter and all these other groups didn’t exist when Cloughie was at the helm.


5.) 08 Nov 2020 18:08:19
Thats the modern world we live in my freind.
Press have always been there to scrutinise, tv plays replay after replay to show how badley a team was done by in slow motion.
Football is a passionate game, if you would lije everyone just to say well done every week, even in defeat or when playing badly, then football is the wrong sport.
Like most you can't see its an opinion in how an individual sees things.
This site would not exist without differing opinions and sir brian didn't have to put up with, nor would have to have had to put up with it because he was a great manager.
When your a small club like us you had to enjoy every minute of it and i certainly did.


6.) 09 Nov 2020 11:25:20
Why single players out? At the moment Yates is public enemy number 1, before him Watson until he put in a great season, before him was osbourne, the list goes on! If they wear our shirt we should support them, the manager picks the team!


7.) 09 Nov 2020 12:30:51
Its the same at every football club.
Our fans aren't unique.
If you live amongst derby fans they are just the same.


8.) 09 Nov 2020 13:18:49
If you think the biggest problem we have is our support after the way Forest has been run for almost the past decade and the total capitulation last season then good luck to you Pascal.
Do you not think any of that alone is deserving of any criticism?
Like Ff says, it's the same at any club and is not just restricted to Forest.
If you don't like what you read on social media then stay away from it, simples.


9.) 10 Nov 2020 08:40:21
Pascal, I agree, I genuinely feel some people are just miserable and come on here to vent, tough times right now.


10.) 10 Nov 2020 13:25:03
Yes perhaps I should stay away from it, I am thankful that non of these negative people are my friends. I enjoy going to watch NFFC home and away and love the club. I am disappointed when we lose or draw when we maybe should have won. I’m not in a position to criticise any of the players as I am not a pro footballer or manager and could do any better. I’ll carry on supporting the club although I have left all the Facebook and Twitter groups as reading all the bile left me feeling down. People are entitled to their opinion but negativity is like a disease.


11.) 10 Nov 2020 18:02:11
So when you go to a game what do you talk about with your mates after the match.


12.) 10 Nov 2020 23:38:12
for the last few seasons they've dominated matches and conceded late equalisers loads of times. now they win playing while playing rubbish and they're relegation fodder?
it's a new manager and a load of new players and they're grinding out some results. i think we should all chill.


13.) 11 Nov 2020 20:37:25
I just don't see the point in going to a football match and having no opinion because you don't feel qualified as your not a manager?


 

 

01 Oct 2019 21:50:47
Good point at a ground that is usually a graveyard for us.
Game was there for the taking though against a bang average Blackburn side.
Hard to know what our style of play is after that display. If it's counter attack then the touch and passing simply isn't good enough.
Maybe try passing the ball to each other to see a game out rather than just hoofing it and soaking up pressure. We're getting away with it at the moment but won't keep doing Plus my finger nails won't last for much longer unless we can see games out with a bit more comfort.

Red Fred

1.) 01 Oct 2019 22:19:54
Sorry fred totally disagree nine games without defeat and your saying its because "were getting away with it? "
Poppy cock we are a hard working team that never knows when to stop running.
Not sure what you want from them? 🤔.


2.) 01 Oct 2019 22:39:26
I don't think Fred is diaputing the effort or work rate, that's there for all to see. I think we just need to show a bit more composure when we win the ball back. That way you make the opposition chase the ball and give the defence a breather. Having said that we have to be happy with another point on the road and if we follow that up with a win in the next home game it's been another good week for the Reds.


3.) 01 Oct 2019 23:11:11
Your living in dreamland saying we'll be in the top 2 by the end of October and 15 points from next 3 games, well that ones already let you down.
Listen I'm overjoyed where we are in the league and the fact we ain't a soft touch anymore. But if you think we're playing well in games then you need to go to Specsavers.
The championship this season looks like it won't be dominated by one or two teams and we stand a decent chance of a top six finish but we can't keep hanging on for dear life at the end of games because it will eventually go wrong and we'll concede late on and some of the confidence will go.
I'm sure Its not Lamouchi's remit to see games out like we are doing and he's working on our ball retention to ease the late pressure but after some of the passing tonight he's got his work cut out.


4.) 02 Oct 2019 07:51:23
Lamouchi will realise he made a mistake in bring on Silva as that invited Blackburn to come at us with sow on we looked far more composed.
Ok we won't get the fifteen points but we will still be top two by end of October not seen anything yet that is better and stronger than us.
Been saying from the second game we are not going to control games we are a counter attacking side built on a good solid defence.
Wont be pretty at times but its effective.


5.) 02 Oct 2019 12:25:41
Just to point out that the bench were going crackers at the back four for dropping off after the substitutions so Joe needs to learn from this and take control rather than criticise the substitutions?


 

 

29 Dec 2018 19:12:23
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!

Red Fred

1.) 29 Dec 2018 19:22:55
Can't put it better than that Fred,but some still think we are making progress 🤔🤔


2.) 29 Dec 2018 20:20:53
Some Delusional individuals FF?


3.) 31 Dec 2018 14:11:42
30% win rate 🤔


 

 

07 Apr 2018 18:28:39
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.

Red Fred

1.) 07 Apr 2018 19:45:09
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.

Steve Cooper is a born winner, here's just a snapshot of his achievements in order of timeline.
Won the 1979 Pontypridd ugly baby of the year competion.
Won the Fifa u17 World Cup with the England team.
Represented Wales and came third in the 2018 Egremont Crab Fair Gurning World championships.
Took Swansea City to 2 successive playoff campaigns.
Hopefully he can add to this list of achievements with Forest?

It shows the quality of the opposition in our last 2 games when the mighty Coventry with an ex Burton Albion centre half playing for them easilly put Boro to the sword at the weekend and beat Cardiff tonight.

Red Fred

 

 

15 Sep 2021 21:52:12
As soon as I saw Hernandes name on the teamsheet it was a given he'd score as he's one of those players we seem to let always do well against us.
At least that's put the Hovarth experiment to bed and it didn't take long. He looked a clown all night.
Garner looks totally uninterested and his corners are an embarrasment.
Soh barely crossed the halfway line but why play him at fullback?
Was Zinkernagel even playing?
Ameobi was inconsistent but boy do we miss him.

Red Fred

1.) 15 Sep 2021 22:00:05

That was so bad it must have been purpose.
Nobody can be that inept at their jobs surely?
Worrall and Blackett played like they'd been on the pop all day.
Could not believe what I just witnessed and still think I'll wake up and it was just a bad nightmare.

Red Fred

2.) 21 Apr 2021 22:10:06
Fred when you say been on the pop all day which player was it 😏 there's too many pops that's our downfall.


3.) 21 Apr 2021 22:13:22
Fred it was one of many very poor performances under hughton.
It was the third game in a row of the same crap.
You get the odd performance like QPR who let's face it let you play.
Ither than that for 40 games hughton has bored the pants off me and it won't get better.


4.) 21 Apr 2021 22:26:58
First half against Bristol we looked good I thought but the second half at Ashton Gate, home to Huddersfield and whatever that was tonight were inexcusable.
Thought we'd turned a corner after the Cardiff game and like you say QPR will always give you a chance but it was just another false dawn.
I know neither of them have been great this season but without Lolley and Ameobi we have no cutting edge. Knockaert has been a massive disappointment and Mighten offers very little I'm afraid. He had a chance to stand out in a game of pure dross tonight but didn't.


 

 

18 Mar 2021 13:24:55
Is history repeating itself?
Concede a late equaliser against the Sheep whilst looking comfortable in the game then turn to crap.
Lost to Luton, lost to Watford, slightly fortunate point against Reading, played off the park against Norwich. Brentford and Cardiff up next. 50 points looking a long way off. Let's hope less than that will avoid the drop.

Spot on fred . Just a quick one reds, am i the only one that thinks grabban should never play for this club again. How half hearted was that attempt last night. Do we need players like him. Just makes me sick his attitude towards this great club. don't get me wrong the list goes on.


3.) 18 Mar 2021 13:51:25

4.) 18 Mar 2021 14:03:34
Btw obviously i agree damson mate.


5.) 18 Mar 2021 14:14:49
I don't tend to believe in fate and luck in football think you make your own.
I think non of the performances under hughton have been convincing we were lucky to beat blackburn who missed a pen and hit the woodwork.
Coventry away very fortunate as well.
But many thought we had turned the corner, which we never did all we did was scrape a result.
I said a while back that a side is gping to give us a real pasting at anytime and i still think that will happen.
If i were any manager in the championship i'd love playing against us as you know all that's required to get a result is to score one goal.
I thought karankas record would never be beaten but the ay things are it could quite easily get beaten.


6.) 18 Mar 2021 16:02:01
so we all agree ch should go, i also belive the prince and that other clown should go. but who comes in, thankfully the cowley bros have found employment so whos avalable. my top three howe, wilder, lampard. but shef utd need a manager and wba next season as i don't think big sam will stop on. lampard will want a london club. any of them would do for me but get shut of that dof, he's the rot at the heart of forest.


7.) 18 Mar 2021 16:49:05
Lampard is being paid too much by chelsea to be interested in rushing back to management.
I think bilic'did a decent job at wba and howe would be a good choice along with wilder who would get a tune out of players and would soon sort out the slackers.


8.) 18 Mar 2021 17:03:47
Lampard's ambition might over take the money he gets from Chelsea.

Some would have said he would have not gone to Derby and waited for a mid to lower PL club as his first job.

Money is not something he is lacking.


9.) 19 Mar 2021 19:50:42
I know you know sense when you read it top bloke Bowie. As for a replacement for Chris Houghton I would have to go for Billy (the king) Davies his pride, passion and love for forest speaks for itself as does his success he had the last time failing billy I’d give Nigel Clough ago and a minimum contract of 3 years as the club needs stability and he will need time to sort out this farce of a squad.

Think with a lot of posters balloons it's not so much anti Cooper but disappointment it wasn't Wilder or Howe after their names had been banded about.
Nothing wrong in being disappointed that the appointment wasn't your first choice but agree let's give the guy a chance.
His after match interviews will be more user friendly when listened to by the medium of radio rather than TV though 🤔🤭🤣.

The first thing they need is to stop taking the knee if they can't all agree to it.
If they're not United in doing it, it shows weakness and a divided camp to the opposition before a ball is even kicked.
