What was said at the after match press conference.

Warnock had a feeling about Browne, were going to play him at some point today anyway.

Fletcher was taken off more as a precaution than anything.

Warnock, Blackwell & Jepson argue a lot

Thought we played excellently today, in our first two games says we out chanced two teams who will both be up there come the end.

Gave special praise to McNair, saying he just gets better and better, as well as Dijksteel & Howson.

Said still need a few more, the players you saw today is the extent of our playing squad.

Disappointed in the way we conceded, but accepts that with the deflection sometimes that happens unfortunately. Said was happy with the way they defended all other set pieces.

Moved to a zonal marking system today and were pleased with how it worked.

Said that they don't want to provide any gimmes, any goal concede has to be earned.

Was happy with the passing today and that "believe it or not" they do want to play football, only when it's right to do so.

and to think that's a previously very highly rated Asmir Begovic.

Amazing what a steady diet of chicken parmos will do to a person's constitution. 😁

I'm really hoping he's on a contract like Akpom of 3+1 because if Dijksteels on a flat 3 year contract we need to extend it ASAP. Standout defenders in this league go for an absolute truck of money, standout defenders in the fashionable back 3 formation like Kelly or Webster? Bring 2 trucks.

If we don't have an option then renegotiate him up on the scale, we can't let him do what he did to Charlton and get a move as he enters his final year next summer we need to tie that lad down I can't think of many other wide CBs with his pace/strength/ability to read the game in this league right now.

strangely Tindall thought we went man to man and very direct today

 

 "There's not too many teams that play this way in the Championship from what I've seen so far. They (Middlesbrough) play a unique way, man-to-man marking, they're a very, very direct side.

    • Two scoring draws last term between the teams and always a close call before that. Forest you would expect to shrug off their poorish start and to progress, but they will also be desperate to start winning. However I would suspect Houghton will be content with a point at the Riverside but for Boro we need to start winning back to back games and I believe we will be too much for Forest and achieve a rare event of late. Maybe travelling teams will be showing a bit more respect towards us as a whole but I do think the game will be very different than seen against Coventry. Going for a home win though at start of season would have been ok with a draw  
    • Forest have so many attacking options, IF we win this it'll set a great marker for where we are heading.
    • I can see Spence dropping to the bench and one of bola or Johnson stepping in, with tav on the right. I assume that was the purpose of the subs the other night. roberts back to the bench as well perhaps.... if no akpom, I’m comfortable with Browne starting, he has done everything asked of him so far. Midfield and defence picks itself, barring injury 
    • So I've seen lots of highlights recently where both penalties and red cards were given, I thought they'd moved away from red cards if it was a penalty, or is it still a red card for being last man?
    • Hopefully Akpom is fit and if he is I would go to a 3.5.2. I would also bring Coulson in. I want him to succeed here and NW said he looked bright in training. Betti Dijk Fry Paddy Tav Howson Morsy Sav Coulson Britt Akpom I would love a win but i rate forest. Would not be too disappointed with a draw.
