1-2 to the good guys - Tomlin and Murphy

0-3.  Hopefully Karanka unprofessionally kicks NLN in the arsehole while they're getting tonked.

Fuck knows. I think theyd be jittery against a pub side at the moment.

That said ill Take a wild stab at a forest win by a single goal - even if its a Burton own goal.

I think a big part of our problem is playing at home in front of 23k critics.
1-1
I'd drop Manciane and play Alf the council street cleaner.

Considering how lousy we've been away from home for the last few seasons and how appalling our recent performances have been I can see nothing but another embarrassing defeat here and being dragged further into the shit. We generally don't perform well against teams at the bottom either! Let's hope Burton have a stinker.

Drop Mancienne and possibly Worrall; they look like their confidence has just evaporated - I'd  play Fox and the new lad at CB. I'd like to see Watson in the centre as well.

Id try Fox in the centre again too. Hes looked more comfortable there in the past. Got to dump this one up top shit whatever else we do.
Do you think you are good enough....?

Easy excuse for our lot to peddle out when in actuality we are no better and no worse than any other set of fans in that aspect.

As for the match, 1-1.

Isn't Fox the only left back we have?

The situation is what it is Natalie.

He's a fucking terrible full back but to be fair to him he hasn't done too badly at centre-half. Mancienne desperately needs taking out of the firing line.

At this point we have nothing to lose so we may as well try Fox

What about playing that Portuguese kid who is on loan? Waste of time bringing him in just to sit on his arse so we may as well give him a go. Cant be any worse than Mancienne has been.

Doubtful whether Lichaj will be selected. His latest performances been sub-par compared to his usually high standards. Karanka as with Warburton initially believes the fault of our defensive frailties is partly down to him so the player could be dropped with Darikwa given another opportunity. Makes no difference If the players continue to stupid careless mistakes, or fail to defend against free kicks / corners (19 Goals conceded from set-pieces). The issue is carelessness, idiotic decisions and Midfield failing to track back or man-mark leaving the defence exposed and vulnerable.

Darikwa? Please no.

 

Burton 2 - Forest 0........unless we start with a more attacking line up and take the game to Burton.

Burton have lost 10 of their last 11 home games. That's got to be among the worst ever runs in this division, you know what that means.....

 

Burton 1-0 Forest

Well, there's the deadline day signing Fuentes, he hasn't played in eight months and only played a handful of games in two years but I'm sure he'll be fine :unsure: 

 

In other news I see Traore played and scored for Cardiff last night. Peltier and Ward started too, so they're one point off automatic promotion with 30% of their outfield players Forest rejects :nerd:

Traore played in the 1-4 victory against Leeds, and scored in the 2-0 Home win against Bolton. The difference is that Traore is played as the left midfielder by Warnock for Cardiff. Although I understand your point ART about our ex-players suddenly improving once they leave the City Ground. Too many times we see this occurring, but who is to blame? The Players, Manager, Coach, Tactics, Pitch, Tea Lady, The Trent water, Supporters or a combination? Unsure but it is infuriating wasting money, time, and effort on the players for them to succeed and blossom at our rivals.

It wouldnt surprise me if we lost this. I have a horrible feeling about Figueiredo making his debut on a cold wet scrappy afternoon and being owned by experienced lower league players.

MM should be dropped of course but I think I'd keep Worrall at CB alongside Fox and play Colback at left back.
