My daughter is NFFC Academy and Womenโ€™s physio, about to get on the coach to play Stoke City Women Kick off 2pm. Itโ€™s common knowledge, Sabri has gone announcement later today.

Just a couple of bits of gossip fellow Reds! My daughter is Leicester City Academy physio and was at the under 23 game yesterday. Firstly, high praise for the conduct of MON, Keeno and Chris Cohen, gentlemen all, very friendly and aporoachable, especially when s he told them we were passionate Forest fans. A Leicester lad got a bad knock and they expressed their concern as to his welfare and clearly took a great interest in the lads despite the atrocious weather, so well done. Secondly, word is Leicesters dreadful helicopter disaster did us a favour because they were definitely going to sack Puell and get MON back then but decided it wouldn't look good! Lastly, chatting to the Forest Academy lads afterwards about Karanka they said towards the end of his tenure he hardly went to training at all and when he did he gave no input and just stood on his own on the touchline. Very odd!

Good info Stokey.


2.) 01 Mar 2019 18:56:03
Nice one stokey๐Ÿ‘


3.) 01 Mar 2019 21:28:56
Welcome back stokey,I know you didn't like karanka going,but it was his choice and the owners can't be blamed for it and now they are going to build us a fine new stand,it's all good.
It's quite funny really because if karanka left because of the DOF appointment then marinakis has been proved right in bringing him in with the best centre backs we've signed for many years.


4.) 02 Mar 2019 11:33:05
It certainly seems like fate has intervened to bring the whole Forest family together and make us stronger. Delighted to see and hear the fans at home are raising the roof for the run in as its now about small margins and we all need to stick together and get behind the lads!


5.) 02 Mar 2019 11:42:20
Agreed red hope we have turned the corner possible playoffs the ground being upgraded happy days spare five seconds to the sadpies looks like they are going out of business!no sympathy from me for hardy


 

 

12 Jan 2019 22:05:06
Well that's the players response to Karanka leaving! Glad you saw that Marinakis great job! So the New manager will inherit a right crock (and no available central defenders! ) Forget playoffs! Great job well done!

Just a few points from Leeds game.

One. The team want to play for Karanka

Two. It would be extremely foolish and counter productive to sack him at this crucial stage of the season.

Three. Leeds are a superb side under a brilliant coach. Even with 10 men they attacked and looked sharper than us in all departments. But its extremely difficult to play at that tempo for 90 minutes and we cashed in at the end as they tired. I hate to say it but I fancy Leeds to go up automatically.

Four. Karanka managed a difficult situation superbly with a disrupted back four, no Grabban and with Likely a passenger. Bringing in Benny was a masterstroke, the last thing a tiring team want is him buzzing around.

Lastly, the foul leading to the straight Red was bad but only as bad as the one on Pants by the Millwall lad which led to a yellow only. By the way can somebody find a way to dissolve the superglue which sticks Pants to his line?

Coyr! Let's get behind Karanka and the boys.

StokeyRed

1.) 02 Jan 2019 00:32:51
karankas got that, its called your out the team mate.


2.) 02 Jan 2019 15:01:36
After the great reception ak got i think the club chairman should say weather there is any truth that the manager is going or staying after all i think the supporters need to know what happend to keeping ing touch with fans that was promised?


 

 

11 Aug 2018 23:20:14
Don't worry fellow trickies we were playing a team that were well organized had had 8 days rest as opposed to our 3 days after high intensity games v Wba and Bristol City. I thought Geddy, Grabba, Carvalho and Dias particularly were running on empty but luckily Colback, Fox (immaculate today), Figgy Darikwa, and the subs Soundani and Cash stepped up to the plate to cover for their tired colleagues. I'm a fan of Benny Osbourne but he's not a left back (too small and lacks pace) and he will cost us goals over the season. So give the boys a rest and team for Bury should be Smith, Byrom, Watson, Dawson, Bridcutt, Brereton, Worrall, Heffer, supplemented by a few academy lads like Yates, Gomis etc. Great result today against a fresh team.

StokeyRed

1.) 12 Aug 2018 09:51:27
Agreed Stokey,completely different 11 for Bury.Give the new boys a run out.Maybe try 3 at the back.Give Brereton and Soudani 90 mins as well.

With the squad we've got atm, regardless of incomings, we've still got a mid table ish group IMO. A team such as Samba, Gabriel Worrall, McKenna Blackett, Yates and Fornah, wide players Mighten and Lolley, up top Taylor? Attacking midfielder Johnson. That leaves back up in the form of Horvath and Smith in goal, full backs a bit light Richardson and Jenkinson ( I know one is untried Academy and one is in the bomb squad) . Midfield Colback and Cafu, light on attacking midfielders just Grabban Carvalho, wingers Swann, Konate. So something to work with I think Taylor will come good? Thoughts (ive got me tin hat on, fire away)! ๐Ÿ˜„.

StokeyRed

1.) 22 Jul 2021 16:20:20
Meant to add Mbe Soh and young Baba Fernandez look good as cover at centre back. So thatโ€™s a squad with a lot of young promising players blended with some experience. About right numerically squad size as well.


2.) 22 Jul 2021 17:13:36
Agree Stokey with the option to bring in 2 or 3 when the transfer market has settled.


3.) 22 Jul 2021 17:14:51
I agree SR . Successful teams do not flood their tabs with new players undermining the moral of the team as happened with us last season . Brentford are a prime example of how to sell their strikers buy a new one and get promoted . Leeds equally so . I would much prefer to see a settled team with a mix of youth and senior fight each game and end the season a good deal higher than last . Creating a high moral in a team is so important and surely is the bedrock for success.

Realistic U-23 Options for the squad

Iโ€™m sure there will be a few comings and goings still, but the squad is relatively steady apart from the full backs and potentially a decision over Joao and Da Costa - it just comes down to game plans now. I trust the new CEO to aim for the right players, until proven wrong. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป.


 

 

14 Jul 2021 14:10:05
Makes me laugh all this nonsense about Southgates "choice" of young penalty takers in the final. It would have been decided before the tournament even started following extensive research by an army of analysts on the stats of the squad.
Of course Gareth could have over ruled the statisticians conclusion but it would take a brave man to do that if it went wrong. Besides, what sort of message does it send to Rashford, Sanchez and Saka? "

Ok lads I know the boffins have proved you are the best penalty takers but I don't trust you enough on this big occasion "
The way some people go on it's like a Sunday morning pub team where the manager shouts " Oi lads anybody fancy taking a penalty in the shoot out? Il get you a beer in the pub afterwards if you score. Any takers? " ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

StokeyRed

1.) 14 Jul 2021 19:43:46
Just bringing on players to take a penalty at the end is too much pressure. They knew they were only there to score a penalty. Come on cold just for that, in front of millions of viewers. Harsh!


2.) 14 Jul 2021 20:18:25
Nice one cyclist ๐Ÿ‘Œ.


3.) 15 Jul 2021 08:44:08
Itโ€™s certainly a tough call Cyclist but every team does it including the Italians. Look, if itโ€™s too tough Iโ€™d volunteer to do it for 150 grand a week! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.


4.) 15 Jul 2021 08:46:21
So its the statisticians that decided who took pens then Stokey, so how many pens has young Saka taken under that type of pressure, to get the statistics for these so called statisticians to go on then, how many pens has he taken in his professional career .


5.) 15 Jul 2021 11:29:46
Mate have a read of โ€œInverting the Pyramid โ€œ by Jonathon Wilson. Itโ€™s probably the best of numerous books about the revolutionary use of stats in football ( and all sports really) .


6.) 15 Jul 2021 15:16:25
Dream, the analysts would know not only how pens Sami had taken in his career but which corner he puts them in and which goalkeepers were his opponents etc etc. I know you canโ€™t replicate pressure and thatโ€™s where Southgate might have over ruled the stats but like I say itโ€™s a brave man to go against them and what sort of message does it send to a young player. ?


 

 

03 Jul 2021 12:04:29
Feeling a bit edgy about tonight's game. It could be a banana skin sort of a match. They will be difficult to break down. We need to score first and early . Rest assured Ukraine will be up for it.
By the way, whilst we're on the Euros I must say I'm not a fan of Switzerland but their flag is a big plus! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ.

StokeyRed

1.) 03 Jul 2021 12:21:18
I agree about the early goal Stokey. Without that we may get bogged down like we did against Scotland. Hopefully Kane has now risen from his slumbers and will set us on our way!


2.) 03 Jul 2021 12:31:04
Not going to be easy without fans to back the team. That is a massive change from German game. Might be crucial.


3.) 03 Jul 2021 13:28:28
Euroโ€™s should have been cancelled, c.v. is running wild again and this tournament means mass gatherings and rule breaking is going on everywhere, positive tests mean isolation and a massive amount of disruption as a consequence.


4.) 03 Jul 2021 13:34:45
Forest looking to sign zian Fleming looks to be a good talent and knows how to put the ball in the back of the net fingers crossed heโ€™s our first signing.
England to win tonight Iโ€™ll go for 3 -0.

Just watched the Italy Belgium match, what a cracking game! Both teams are better than us by a long way in terms of pace, power and technique. Puts things in perspective a bit, but we are a young team and we can watch learn and build for the future.

StokeyRed

1.) 02 Jul 2021 22:27:00
No they weren't stokey, was i watching a different game mate?


2.) 03 Jul 2021 10:09:54
I think itโ€™s a question of consistency Bowie. Both kept up that intensity for virtually the whole 90 minutes whereas we seem to hit those heights perhaps, on a good day, say 40 % of the time. Having said that both teams were equal in quality and had the confidence to come out and play good attacking football whereas we seem to go into our shells a bit. Great game though.


3.) 03 Jul 2021 11:01:23
Well said stokey mate your right ๐Ÿ‘Œ.


4.) 03 Jul 2021 11:36:27
I'm not sure Bonucci and Chiellini will fancy Sterling and Saka's pace!


 

 

30 Jun 2021 17:35:53
Ed, perhaps you could help me with this. My best mate has told me that Scousers are completely unable to correctly pronounce the word "chicken " as in the domestic fowl. Admittedly, he is a woolly back from Saint Helens. The word invariably comes out as something like "check in " or similar. This is through no fault of their own.
However this pales into insignificance besides the fact that whole swathes of the populations of Scotland and Wales are completely unable to articulate whole sentences such as "Congratulations to England on their magnificent victory last night and best wishes for the remainder of the tournament ".
Why is this? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.

StokeyRed

{Ed001's Note - you know he is not actually a woolly back, it has got mixed up, it is the Scousers that are woolly backs from when they used to export wool from the docks and would carry bags of wool on their backs. Now it is used to suggest those from out of town are inbred with sheep, but we all know that only happens in Derby....

As for the rest, perhaps they are all Everton fans? Or, to give them their Latin name, Bitterosa Blaviusnosus (bitter bluenoses). And now I will get it in the neck on the Everton site for saying this!!}


1.) 30 Jun 2021 18:55:29
Very good ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.


2.) 01 Jul 2021 10:19:55
Many thanks Ed, thatโ€™s a very educative insight into Scouse world. Iโ€™ll refer the Welsh / Scottish conundrum to my muttering friends from those parts of the uk ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง. Cheers mate ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿค”.

{Ed001's Note - glad to help Stokey.}

I predict Kyle Taylor will come good given a run of games. Heโ€™s got a difficult job atm with being the lone striker and woeful midfield support.

Definately no to me on Patterson and Britt. Get rid of Ameobi, Colback, Bachirou, Arter, Freeman, Grabban, Bong, Jenkinson, Murray, Dawson (coaching role), Sow possibly after medical review, Samba (too inconsistent) . Core of the team Worrall, Christie, McKenna, Mighten, Ribeiro, Blackett, Figgy, Taylor ) who will come good, Lolley if fitness proved, Yates, Garner back if possible, Johnson recalled, Cavalho get rid, Kronovic sign up, Knockeart get rid. That leaves a tight squad supplemented by hungry young prospects from the lower leagues. A lot of dead wood to go but emphasis on quality not quantity. Most of all reform the scouting recruitment side of things and actually see what the manager wants! ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก.

I can reveal from an impeccable source that Chris Cohen and Reidy gave McGuane and a couple of other lads as yet unidentified a thorough work out at the Academy yesterday morning. His signing will probably be announced tomorrow. Unless of course it was a fitness test and they failed it!

I think Ribeiro wanted to go home what with the c.v. and so on so itโ€™s hard to persuade him otherwise. I donโ€™t think we had a choice really. Pity because he was our best left back and wing back.

Both my grandads were miners and my Dad worked as a welder at Raleigh all his working life and was a shop steward. His Union, the Society of Metal Mechanics paid for all my books and equipment when I went to university through a grant. I have always voted Labour but even I couldnโ€™t beat the thought of Diane Abbott as Home Secretary and Corbyn as PM. I had high hopes of Corbyn when he was first elected leader but then realised he was still fighting the old Marxist battles of 40 or 50 years ago and hadnโ€™t developed or matured at all. As for Abbott it wasnโ€™t because she was black it was because she was incompetent and dangerous.
