    Will we go up

    To get promoted generally you need to be able to win back to back games. So no.

    2019/2020 Season tickets

    I have to commend the loyalty of the support. Whilst at the same time questioning their collective mental state.

    Forest v Villa

    See you in August folks...
  4. Wonder if a couple of foreign goals will be enough for Brexit O'Neill to think twice about his team next week.

    City Ground to be re-developed

    I wasnt really trying to moan. Just stated originally that if we're going to have a great big stadium then we need a team that will fill it. Yes we've had good attendances this season but the numbers say that is the exception not the norm. The summer provided a lot of optimism but if that turns into yet another false dawn I could see it going back to normal again as there's only so much shit someone can take. I hit my tipping point about the time Billy had us humiliated at the shaggers. Time will tell of course but I've had mixed views about EM this season. I see £13m and £6m spent on Carvalho and Grabban and that gives me hope (even if he then employs a bloke who won't play them ) that we're showing the required ambition to go up. Then you look at wasters like Ansarifard, Pele, Tachtsidis and Hefele and I just think it's Fawaz all over again...particularly when the other similarity between them is appointing a manager based on sentiment. I'm still not convinced MON was ever the right choice as much as I want him to be but that's a different debate. Yes legs_akimbo you're spot on mate. Fawaz and Doughty killed any positive feelings I used to have.

    City Ground to be re-developed

    Since we won our second European Cup our average attendance has topped 25k once - in 1996. In that time we've had Wembley as our second home, had promotions, finished 3rd in the top flight and had several other play off seasons. Sure we'd have a bit of a boost due to the novelty of a new stand but long term would we be selling out 38k each game? History suggests not. We'd have to seriously up the quality of the team and be an established Premier League club to even consider the possibility, and even then the pricing and marketing would have to be sound. Not trying to be negative. Just realistic. You won't get 38k in each week to watch the 2022 equivalent of Daryl Murphy and Ben Watson slug it around the second tier against Brentford or Millwall.

    City Ground to be re-developed

    Need a team that could actually fill it. All well and good having a great spanking new stand packed out then having nobody in the Upper Brian Clough. I'm all for the regeneration of the stand and the area as its in dire need of it but no point having 38k seats playing gash second tier football in front of 22k.

    Forest v Derby

    Yeah it was a good old fashioned solid team selection suited perfectly for a Derby game. He seems to be against the idea of playing anyone foreign though unless they're an animal like Benoloane. Not sure how much that would impress EM though seeing as he forked out £13m on Carvalho and £6m on Grabban who has sometimes found himself sub behind Murphy. I just hope he brings a bit more flair in though over the next few weeks as playing that way against Derby is all well and good but in the bread and butter games it would soon grate. There's absolutely no need to try and grind out games either IMO. We have a pretty mean looking defence now so I don't feel like we need all the hard-working solid lads in the middle all the time. Even Osborn out wide is pretty negative so it would be nice to see us go at teams with at least 4 attack minded players on the pitch in the next few games. Particularly at home.

    Forest v Derby

    Brexit O'Neill was always going to choose as many British lads as he could. If Carvalho can't get a game against Preston he ain't playing against the Sheep

    Good luck

    Forest v Derby

    Don't think I've ever cared less about a Derby game. I'll probably get the nerves tomorrow but I'd actually forgotten about the game until I looked yesterday and realised we weren't playing.

    Birmingham v Forest

    I don't understand why it's so hard to just put our best 11 players out. Pants Janko, Milosevic, Benoloane, Robinson Yacob, Colback Lolley, Carvalho, Cash Grabban Easy as that. Just get them out and pass it about a bit and all of a sudden the fans are on board. Stop fucking wanking off your Irish mate Murphy cus he's shot now

    Birmingham v Forest

    1-0 Brum. Horsfield in the 68th minute

    NFFC Rumours

    It's hardly been a show of support for our new management team. None of the signings seem like MON choices to me and if it gets to April and we even have a sniff of play offs I'll be shocked.
  15. Savo

    NFFC Rumours

    Signing of Bonatini suggests 4-4-2 so struggling to see where Carvalho and potentially this new Mendes signing fit in

    Yeah not enough cruciate ligament injuries between them for us. Move on.

    January transfer window

    Well Fox has gone to Wigan so there's at least one new player coming in. Let's hope it's one of quality rather than 3 shit oxygen thieves as per usual.
  18. Savo

    NFFC Rumours

    It's just dawned on me that the window closes in 3 days...where did that go?! We need to pull our fingers out. I doubt MON would be here if there were no assurances that we would spend.

    NFFC Rumours

    For me I like the idea as he might give a few bollockings out providing our precious snowflakes can take it. What would worry me is the fact that our no2 is more high-profile than the manager and it may provide a sideshow. Keane shouldn't be doing press conferences for example or training ground interviews. I wouldn't have known who Karanka's assistant was if I walked past him in the street and don't even know his name.
  20. Personally I'd prefer them to stay up. It'd be good for the city if Notts were more competitive. I remember when I was a kid County, Derby and Leicester were all in the same league as us and it was great. Obviously I don't want them to be better than us but competitive at least. At the moment they're an embarrassment

    Sounds like he'd fit in.

    Has O'Neill been out of club football that long that he's only got Leicesters number in his phone?

    Jollies this year...

    Mates wedding in Cyprus in August. Going for 5 days and then flying to Santorini. Then ferry to Athens and eventually get to Istanbul via train then fly home. Should be about 3 weeks in total. Also going to Seville next month which I'm looking forward to.
  24. Is this game dull or has it been abandoned or something?
  25. If we continue with 4-4-2 then it basically spells the end of Carvalho unless he plays as a deep-forward. Wouldn't trust him as part of a midfield two. I suspect MON is a horses for courses man though and we might see it different each week depending on personnel and opposition. Unlike AK who would play two holding midfielders if we were playing Barcelona or if we had Dog and Duck FC.
