These looked shite in the playoff final, anyone know if they've made any serious additions?

 

Forest 2-0. Not sure whether we'll be top as I fancy the shaggers to smash a very poor Sunderland side.

They've signed Northern Ireland right back, Connor McLaughlin from Fleetwood, Jake Cooper centre back from Reading and Ryan Tunnicliffe from Fulham who used to be quite decent and is still only mid 20's

 

Going for a 2-0 victory too

Swap Velios for Murphy and i think that team will start.

Forgot about him! Would have him in the side definitely. Probably over McKay.

Traore will play as a centre half, probably in place of Hobbs and McKay will play on the left. This will leave room for Brereton to come into the side...

 

I do not think Warburton fancies Velios or possibly thinks his strengths are coming off the bench so Murphy will probably start. I would go for Cummings though, from what I saw preseason I think he will score goals.

The opinions of him I've read don't suggest to me that he could play a wing back role. Apparently he's gifted but lazy...

Savo, so you prefer Darikwa over Lichaj? No criticism as we all have differing opinions. Although understandably you might not have seen Lichaj in pre-season to make an opinion. If you've watched the highlights to the USA games he participated then maybe you'd re-consider. His form was paramount for USA getting through the early stages of CONCACAF, playing an important role in the Quarter-Final match against El Salvador where he scored a vital goal in a 2-0 win. Plus his superb performances last term ensured that he received the Nottingham Forest Player of the Season. So would you drop him? In my opinion Eric Lichaj would automatically be in the starting line-up, but I believe Warburton has differing views on the player that is why he signed Darikwa.

 

The concern is the fragility of the central defence in pre-season, as like last season looked vulnerable to the Counter and Set Pieces due to poor positioning and re-actions. If Nottingham Forest faced a side with a clinical finisher, the results would probably be different. This is why I don't understand why Warburton has targeted and/or signed the players to strengthen the squad in those positions, when the side desperately required a central defender, and a creative central midfielder to help take pressure away from the defence.

Is he fit from summer exploits? He may get a bit of extra time off. Have you seen Darikwa play? He's done well so far. More than an adequate stand-in

I don't think it's a case of people preferring him over Lichaj, I know I don't, but Warburton has worked with him before and the fact he's gone back for him means he'll probably be first choice.

Can't see Lichaj starting as he's only joined up with the squad this week.

My guess at the staring line-up is;

Smith

Worrall
Mancienne
Mills

Darikwa
Vaughan
Bouchalakis
Osborn
Traore

Cummings
Murphy

He played left wing back against Notts but I guess he wasn't really tested defensively due to the standard of the opposition.

I'd expect something like this but the front 2 (hope its 2) are anyone's guess. Murphy is likely but the other is harder to predict.
Do you think you are good enough....?

Are you depressed all the time or something? Your sucking the life out of us fans. If you truly think we will lose 1-2 then that's your opinion but why do you rate us that bad that we will not beat a side coming up from league 1? We may lose 1-2 anything is possible but why s that your depressing prediction? Do you also think we will finish bottom of the table?
