    Nottingham Forest striker Lewis Grabban was involved in a training-ground dispute after club physios questioned the extent of his Achilles injury.

    Forest v Derby

    cant see a win. battling type of 0-0 display which would see an end to our play off hopes. Hope we win as we need to start pegging back from 7 up as there's a gap opening up.

    Preston v Forest

    That’s it ... solid. Reckon we will do a Burnley next year. Win games just by being physically better and tight at the back. Nothing great to watch. Carvalho will probably be shipped out to Olympiacos in the summer

    He must have money on Preston scoring first

    Birmingham v Forest

    Competence was wrongly assumed. As you've pointed out the club, the recruitment of players has been woeful, probably for a decade or more. Over the last ten years we've made a handful of decent signings, Antonio, Assombalonga, Earnie, Lansbury (?), Gunter, McCleary...and I went back to the 2007/2008 season. Despite ownership, despite manager Forest have consistently signed poor players. More often than not journeymen rubbish who have come and gone in a season or leached a living. History repeats it's self more often than not, hope at the start of the season only for it to fall apart around Christmas. I think I've had a season ticket for maybe 11/12 years... i genuinely can't be arsed seeing the same things happen again and again. I'm local to Villa, kids can support them ... at least they're deluded to think they're a big club, sadly there's also the chance they will see Premier league football again as I dont think i'll see Forest in the prem and I'm only 40.

    I think he’s gone in May anyway. Then the next bloke will last for six months ... no doubt there will be more freebies clogging up the club. Once EM realises it’s going to cost him £mms to get promotion I think he will be off.

    Spot on. If I was manager for the first XI out of the current crop of permanent squad members I’d keep Carvalho, Grabban, Fig and maybe Lolley who’s been hugely inconsistent. The rest are either too limited or have one decent game in five. We have far too many defensive minded midfielders and outside of Geddy, who is massively flaky, no one creative in the first two thirds of the pitch. Our recruitment has been absolutely dreadful. I’m probably in the minority in that I wanted Karanka gone because his football was dull but also thought the playing staff was terrible as well

    Agree with all this. I think there’s one chef though, unfortunately the chef doesn’t know how hard the championship is.

    I’m not convinced sacking Karanka was a bad decision. I am convinced hiring MoN was a bad decision. Could Karanka have built something? Yes, but if rumours are true he wanted to sign proven championship players which cost £ms and the owners didn’t then you what do they do? Hence the fallout. The owners wanted someone who’d play with freebies and what’s currently in the squad. This squad isn’t top six, the manager isn’t top six and the owner isn’t top six. They’re shit, we’re shit it’s time to get some barbiturates and find a dirty mattress at 1500 every Saturday.

    Not to be antagonistic but did we really compete or flatter to deceive? Players went off the boil before he came in, Lolley had a spell that helped us out. The defence has always been dodgy, especially from concentrated pressure with high balls. The team has always been slow. The home form and football has been utter shite all season.

    meanwhile we've got two quality strikers on the bench. One of them was the top scorer in the league not so long ago.

    This was always the danger in appointing MON, attritional football without the effectiveness.. Given he played under Cloughie and Keane under Ferguson it's hard to understand how they conjure up such shite football. Reminds me of when my young lad paints and gets orange, yellows, bright blues and mixes them up .... it always go brown eventually.

    We are going to muscle our way up the table. Small players don’t fit in
