Forest v Barnsley

Recommended Posts

Get in! Made hard work of that and were far from convincing. Samba required to make some good stops and defenders put their bodies on the line over and over, Dawson especially. Last year we would have either lost or drawn that. A win, 3 points and another clean sheet looks fine on paper. Delighted for Watson. But need to be better against similar teams. Up to 5th and we go on again.

Not a great performance but who gives a fuck?  Pretty much playing with ten men after the last sub with Grabban on the wing so we were always going to be hanging on a bit.  Barnsley were better than I expected.

Another win but far from convincing. What has happened to Lolly!

Possible that the link with Villa turned his head,

He was brilliant against Birmingham. Was his head not turned that day?

Bit of a cliche but that’s the type of match we would’ve lost in recent years. We weren’t at our best at all but we found a way to win and defended heroically. That’ll breed a different type of confidence in the squad; the fact that we’re capable of pulling teams apart, such as Birmingham, but also putting in the hard yards when it matters shows that we’re not a fair-weather side.

Spot on. Builds fear in the opposition when they know you’re likely to win on an off day & likely to tear them a new one on a good day.

It’s a good win as we’re really not good against the weaker teams historically. 

Grinding out wins is a good sign

This is Forest remember. We always falter against poorer teams. 

Edge it 1-0

Negative or realistic Dane? ;) :D

Defo realistic, Savo.

3pts is 3pts though mate. Winning ugly is better than not winning at all.

Winning when your playing pretty bad is the sign of a good team. Obviously it's too early to say that though but if we can grind out wins over the coming months to Christmas when we aren't necessarily on song then there is plenty of reason for optimism
