Well, we will never score goals because AK is defensive minded and we won't be entertained. need a new manager, be gone by international break.
Oh and fancy paying 6 million for a crap striker.
Some advocated patience . vindicated I feel.


1.) 28 Nov 2018 23:35:30
Yes, it looks like we have the defence sorted as well. lol

Rafik Djebboue to sign this week.


1.) Would be a great addition 39 goals in 56 games.

2.) Billy's back tomorrow

Positives from last night :
Goalkeeper looks confident and assured and made several good saves.
Ribeiro looked good, worked hard going forward as well as defending. Got a good touch.

Jenkinson played well though looked unfit.
Bostock will be a great player for us, demanded the ball, assured passing and tackling he made the side tick last night

Silva very busy all over pitch and a great flick and finish for the goal but too many passes went astray.
Sow solid
Mir worked hard but nothing came his way re creating a chance.
Appiah not used by our midfield as he got in to good positions, maybe a trust thing which will come.
The rest did what they had too and did ok.

In general the quality of the passing especially around the opposition box needs to improve to make that telling pass.
So far I think the acquisitions made by Head Coach have improved the squad but desperately need a striker that can create a chance for himself as well as poach goals.


1.) 14 Aug 2019 11:59:19
Unfortunately Trent, the all important striker you talk of won't arrive until the season is half done.
Poor business in the summer will see us struggle again.

2.) 14 Aug 2019 13:25:13
Everyone keeps saying about a striker and yes we need one, but if the pot is empty its empty doesn't make it bad business just means were keeping within ffp, the striker we all wanted would of cost a fortune that we clearly don't have, just hope the owner keeps that in mind when his finger gets itchy personally I don't see how he can demand success without having the financial clout to achieve it.

Punt on Wilfred Bony? Currently training with a league 2 side I believe.

4.) 14 Aug 2019 14:28:02
Wages, and his bad injury that he had are off putting. Not so much Bony but Wall Flower.

5.) 14 Aug 2019 18:06:18
Prefer Boney M.

6.) 14 Aug 2019 18:34:06
Fbb we would at least be going hooray, hooray at games, just as long as the players do not play as if they are on holiday, or having anything to do with the dutchy. 😀.

7.) 14 Aug 2019 18:59:41
C T are you confusing Boney M with Musical Youth?

8.) 14 Aug 2019 19:41:46
Bonny is done. Had one good season.

9.) 14 Aug 2019 19:42:42
Pass. 😁.

S_Getty for me one out of two is good, some days are better than others.

New Forest kits are on Macron web site.

Last night I witnessed the best atmosphere at the City Ground for a long, long time especially the last 15 minutes when the fans got right behind the team to lift them and carry them through to win.
The banners in Trent End before the game were class.
So proud to have been there and the team.


1.) 26 Feb 2019 19:11:54
Would have loved to have been there mate. roll-on May!!!

Just looked at the first team squad for last years Arsenal cup game compared to yesterdays Chelsea cup game. Of the 27 man squad,19 have gone or out on loan.
Massive amount of work done by AK and for a reasonable amount of money.
This 20-25 million having been spent isn't bad in replacing so many . Especially half of it on one player.
AK has had to pick up bargains to fill places and make up numbers all be it better than we had.

League table last year we were 14th on 32 points, goal diff -9

now 7th on 39 points, goal diff +10
. I think we are making progress not spectacular but progress.


1.) 06 Jan 2019 13:03:24
Personally I think we have made a major step forward and progression.

With those 2 silly home losses to QPR etc and the draw @ Norwich we could be 6 to 8 points better off.

A few tiny adjustments and the rub of the green and who knows.

But compared to the Last bunch of seasons near the bottom of the table - I believe AK is taking this club in the right direction.

We probably are not ready for promotion but a play off place would be a remarkable achievement in my humble opinion.

2.) 06 Jan 2019 14:30:10
Meaty - good post although I’m sure warburton would say say he could have easily had another 8 points - they were the fine margins he spoke of.

One Area of progress I can see is the 5 points over Xmas , whilst still pathetic it’s less pathetic than recent seasons .

3.) 06 Jan 2019 15:33:47
Arsenal game 12 months ago was packed with academy players. If memory serves me right about 7 in total.
Under AK the academy has been binned and a lot of money spent. Some very poor signings as well.
We have progressed but in a disproportionate way in comparison to amount spent.

No home game for two weeks, no midweek games. Window open, owner present yesterday. Next week crucial to AK future whether we agree or not.

4.) 06 Jan 2019 16:49:23
I agree it’s crucial to his future. I don’t believe that the team should have consisted of Worrall, Brereton, Cash, McKay, Cummings, Smith, dowell Walker and clough as they just weren’t up to it, all ok prospects but not good enough to make up a large % of a championship team. I think AK has got it right persevering with cash. Grant won’t make it, Yates - can’t comment on him but I suspect not.

I wouldn’t have brought 5 season tickets personally had I have felt the club would continue to play so many academy players and youngsters on Ioan from other clubs.

I do agree though that the progress for the money spent is disproportionate and probably not sufficent - I think that’s a very fair point.

5.) 06 Jan 2019 17:23:34
I'd much prefer to have Smith in goal to pants,Worrall instead of heffle,He's wasted money on Watson,soudani,Heff,pants and the likes of janco goncalves Dias ansafarad are not as good as players he's released.
Time has come to buy quality not quantity and for no more Greek gifts from olympiacos.

6.) 06 Jan 2019 18:41:42
I don’t disagree with that



27 Sep 2018 14:14:25
Great game last night
Good football, plenty of goals, fantastic effort, great work rate and tackling.
On the negative side I think Figs and Bridcut tried too hard to play the fancy passes and got got caught out too often.
Grabban the very opposite to the rest of the teams effort. As a lone striker with only ten men, his job was to close down defenders with the ball to slow down the play and to hold the ball for as long as he could when he got it. He did neither and looked lazy. Such a shame when everyone else put such a great effort in.


1.) 27 Sep 2018 15:01:00
Dont agree with that on grabban he did hokd the ball up well and kept the ball well when he had it, you jave tp remember towards the end are defence and midfield was just hitting the ball as long down the pitch as the could. Ever player played well why can't you just be happy we won instead of trying to find fault with every player.

2.) 27 Sep 2018 15:27:43
Agree on Grabban, outshone by Murphy, granted playing Murphys game but if he wants to prevail here, Grabbans going to have to show some sort of appetite for the dirty work.

Grabban posted himself in a position where he was of no use defensively or offensively in a what looked like a ploy to avoid work, when we desperately needed someone to cut off the endless supply of bombs into our box.

Murphy at Blackburn please, infact Murphy anywhere where we'll rely on some graft to get it done.

3.) 27 Sep 2018 18:57:43
fault with every player ??????
Read the post mate
If you read my posts youll find i'm one of the rose tinted brigade

4.) 27 Sep 2018 19:36:21
Don't normally like to defend footballers when it comes to fitness but maybe a 4th game in 12 days having just returned from an injury lay off might have taken its toll on him.Three 90 min games and apparently not completely over his injury when he played against Swansea.

5.) 27 Sep 2018 23:56:39
Horses for courses, grabban is better suited against teams who are going to push up, not like Rotherham, also don’t think he can play up on his own

We are doing what Watford did to go up. our link is Olympiacos where as Watford got their players from an Italian club.

we do need a striker but in the mean time i'm sure we will set up differently against other sides. We have played 2 of the favourites for promotion and away to one of them, its all about tactics for each game.

Just because we have several centre backs doesn't mean that position isn't a problem. Obviously the manager doesn't think they are good enough. The problem will be moving on the not wanted players.

Norwich got Pukki for free and look what he did
Sheff Utd got McGoldrick for free and Sharp for next to nowt so there are bargains out there, big money does not always guarantee results.
Im just hoping the scouts out there are doing their job.
The last week of close season is always busy with transfers, looking forward to who we get and the start of the season.

Agree need a quality goal scorer that can convert more chances than Grabban . In the past we have had great teams on paper and failed miserably so maybe with players that have gone under the radar is the way forward. Teams like Brentford, Swansea, Wolves have signed players nobody had heard of and ended up playing fantastic football and aside from Brentford gone up. i'm not sure what over whelming players people expect us to realistically go for?

The whole team are working their socks off for the team. I watched JC especially this match due to the moaning about him and to be honest he is a genuine grafter that keeps to the formation and works so hard chasing players down . He has the confidence to try his bits of skill but they don't always come off but hats off to him in that he tries the flair bits, the crowd love it when it comes off. that's entertainment.

There is more responsibility to his game than attacking play. Why people keep going on about his price is beyond me. We paid it and that's now history. Get over it. There is no return clause so accept him as a Forest player that has helped us to second place.

and the best thing about the results is that we have shown more grit and character than seen in the last few years. Work very hard and heads don't go down.

Stevie, its great being a happy clapper. Club doing really well on and off the pitch. a lot of positives to be happy with.

meanwhile the fore moaners are very unhappy about their predictions of disaster going wrong, manager being sacked, owner unhappy, squad too big, signings being rubbish and an ensuing relegation battle, oh and now a poor 45 minutes in a game away from home which we drew. ha ha I know which I prefer to be.

If only we had got a British manager and British players and not bought bang average players to replace the average players we already had!
