    Maybe dropping Dawson from the back four and bringing Figgy back might help. Poor managerial decision. I agree with the rest, but I still think if we don't get results against Huddersfield and Hull, SL will be on his bike. As much as I like Marinakis for what he is bringing to the club, he's frigging trigger happy when it comes to firing a manager. He's worse than me.

    I'd say it will come with a better manager mate. But I will admit you are right, we simply cannot continue sacking managers every 6 months, but the fact that they get sacked kinda proves my point that they weren't the right one.

    No I wouldn't mate. I was only 17 when he took over and knew he'd get us up. Didn't expect what followed though mate. Difference now Chaz? I'm 60 now, haven't seen us in a prem match since I was 40, and am rapidly coming to the conclusion that I won't see us in another prem match again in my lifetime. I try to look at it pragmatically, and say that Forest are exactly where they were in early 70's pre Clough, and maybe that is our place in the football hierarchy. Maybe I should be happy with a mid table finish and not expect us to be at least trying to get promoted. Maybe just wanting us to see us back in the Prem is just me setting my sights far too high.

    Part of the problem, yes mate, but even so Chaz, the players we have should manage to score more than 7 in 9 home games. The manager has to take blame for that. Only one team has scored fewer home goals than us, so by your reckoning, we have the second worse squad in the championship, or by my reckoning, our manager is fucking useless.

    So, lets look at the first 45 against Millwall, Chaz. Probably one of the worst 45 we've played in years. Manager's fault for fucking around with formation and personnel. You say we don't have decent players, but the manager can't just drop our best players and change the formation on a whim. Grabban came on, and within a minute made SL look like an incompetent twat. I know our players aren't world beaters mate, but the way SL has us playing is wrong. Our build up play is slow. We don't get players forward. The team is built around not conceding and trying to get a 1-0 out of the two chances we create. To be honest mate, he's turned out to be just like Karanka, and you know what I thought of his horrible football.

    Which I've already said in previous posts.

    But they will only play one striker, the same as us Chaz, and ours is the most prolific in the Championship over the past 5 years, but you wouldn't guess that watching him starved of chances in SL's set up. I can't see how you're finding it hard to get.

    Carvalho isn't a left winger Chaz. Even an out of form Lolley is a better option in that position. And as for no options. or squad is still fucking massive. I'll bet you a pound to a penny Brentford & Preston have a much smaller squad than ours. What you are trying to say is that once again we have a squad full of stiffs, even though we were supposed to have cleaned out the deadwood in the summer and replaced them with 12 better players?

    Not aiming at you Rick, it's just I've heard so many saying that when we win the game in hand we'll be 3rd.

    Progress under SL.... Dec 2018 P20 Pts 34 GD+11 Dec 2019 P21 Pts 34 GD+6 Is that good enough for EM, or is he prepared to give SL a full season and see where we stand in May?

    It matters not one jot what I think Chaz. Marinakis owns the club, not me, and he will fire this manager, not me. Simple mistakes are being made. Figs and Worrall were doing a decent job at the back, but the manager decides to break up the partnership and introduce a player who can't run. It's clear to everyone that pairing Silva and Carvalho doesn't work, but SL still does it. It's basic stuff mate, and Marinakis will not tolerate the poor results and mediocre performances. The first half against Millwall, and the first half against Wednesday are as bad as it gets. Marinakis will not tolerate it. He'll sack the manager for being incompetent, it won't be me. Do I like sacking a manager every December? No I don't. I'm more pissed by the fact that we keep appointing one dud after another. If you don't get the right man you'r not going up, you don't even make the top half of the league never mind top 6. Is our squad that much worse than that of teams above us like Preston, Brentford, Bristol City, or Wednesday's? Or are their respective managers more capable of getting better out of what they have? Even shitty Millwall, who by the way, sacked their manager recently, are only a point behind us. Something has to change to make us competitive Chaz, and Marinakis only knows one way to change things. He wields the axe and the manager is gone. His decision, not mine.

    Why do people think we'll win that game in hand? And even if we do win it, it's not played till the end of January, and on current form, that 3 pts won't even take us into the top 6. Let's not make any bones about this, a failure to win either of the next two games will result in SL getting the boot. I still can't get my head around the fact that we have scored a measly 10 goals in 10 home games....and 3 of those came in one match. It is depressingly poor. I don't think SL is good enough to turn it around.

    Makes no odds mate. 2 points from 12, but all winnable games. Out the top 6 now and I reckon SL gone before the end of the month. His tactics are all wrong, and like I've said before, other championship managers have sussed him. Maybe another manager won't take us up, that is debatable, but what is certain is that SL won't.

    The end is nigh for SL. Marinakis wants promotion this season. He won't get it with SL.

    Game tonight - Boro

    There's a blast from the past. How you doing Mike?

    Game tonight - Boro

    I'm not bitching Chaz, but getting closer to it with every game. 9 home games and only 14 points out of 27 with just 10 goals scored....... and 3 of those were in one game. SL needs a new game plan IMO. I honestly believe that he has well and truly been sussed by every championship manager. I was really hoping this would be our season, but I'm now doubting we have what it takes to finish top 6.

    Game tonight - Boro

    I don't buy into this we need 2 new strikers shit. We need 2 wingers and a number 10 to sit in behind Grabban. We need one striker for cover if grabs gets injured. Our biggest problem is creating good chances. Apart from grabs, the whole of our attack is next to useless. Oh, and sitting back on a 1-0 lead doesn't help either.
  19. Dane B

    Game tonight - Boro

    Agreed Savo. 2 pts from last 9 is not good. SL seems clueless on how to turn our home form around. Last two home games against teams who haven't won away and we've beaten neither of them. Is our bubble bursting around the same time it did last season?

    The politics thread

    And the alternative Daz? Corbyn as PM and Dianne Abbott as Home Secretary? I'd say that anybody who votes on Thursday is a cunt. Neither the Tories, nor Labour, are fit to run this country, yet millions will be out on Thursday voting for them. Crazy. It won't be a vote for who can do the best for this country, it will be a vote for who can do the least damage. BJ or Corbyn? It's a no brainer. Neither.

    Millwall v Forest

    He said Leeds and WBA are miles better than everyone else.

    Millwall v Forest

    We lost the first half 0-1 thanks to the wrong team being picked. We won the second half 2-1 once we had the right personnel on the pitch. Did SL cost us all 3pts? At least he had the wherewithal to put right his cock up.

    Millwall v Forest

    Oooooh, controversial

    Millwall v Forest

    Fair point in the end. Few lessons for the manager to learn. 1) Mir is shite 2) Semedo is shite 3) Start Grabban, even if he's got a broken leg. He'd still be better than Mir 4) 5 at the back doesn't work. Don't fucking try it again. 5) Pick you're strongest starting XI every game. Don't fuck about trying new things.
