I don't think any of the games in the Championship are easy,I was impressed with Luton even if Forest were down to 10 men,I don't think Forest will be easy...But saying that our opening 8 games we've bagged 13 Pts which is more than I expected(a lot more)

 

I think we delight in the points total because expectation was pretty low mainly because of squad size and a poor transfer window. 
In reality we have won 3 games in 8 and when you put it that way it’s not so impressive. But then you could look at it and say if just one of the draws turned a win we would be in the playoffs or if two draws were converted into wins we would be second..
Looking at the table statistics supports your statement of how tough the league is, but it’s just the season starting and expected.

Our squad size worries me and it’s only a matter of time when managers work out each other tactics so lets see the table after 15 games and hopefully we might even see a bit of exciting football. OK ignore the last part ....

My doodle entry. As Anglian says, hard to get any kind of control with the mouse!

Played 9, conceded 5 goals, the same as the much vaunted Watford Premiership defence. After last seasons abysmal showing then step forward Neil Warnock and his coaches, what a turnaround, take a bow,

One very special moment (This time I didn't cheat)

Thanks, but it's just a doodle.. took me 10 minutes with oil brush and spray can in MS Paint 😁😅

Don't sell yourself short mate...it looks better than a lot of stuff you find hanging in some galleries. Sort of vague and abstract but with enough detail for it to be recognisable. 👍

It is pretty impressive for something done in MS Paint. Everything I do looks like it was drawn by a 4-year-old (but its hard to have any fine control with a mouse). ☹️

Akpom doesn't have the 'rona, so we'll have him on the bench at least.

Yeah just seen this. He has a very heavy cold so not sure how much that has taken out of him. Would be tempted to leave him out v Forest so he fully recovered and ready for Blackburn n Brentford.

Stick 'im on the bench, give the lad a hot water bottle, he'll be fine

Forest unbeaten since Hughton was given the job there, but they've only won one of the four games.  Good squad on paper but not so good on the park.  Could be a decent time to play them before Hughton can really get them going, assuming he does.  The draw is probably the favoured result but maybe we can nick it by the odd goal.  Britt to shank at least one shot so badly that it curves around like a boomerang and hit's him on the back of the head.

Weirdly, I was going to do something from the game the season before, when Chris Morris tried to take Keith Gillespie's leg off.  Alas, I have absolutely no artistic talent whatsoever.  I can't even draw stick men 😭

I think a mouse wriggles around to much and they bite, its best to use the paint brush.

    • Good point - probably the year after then. God its like discussing how much longer Warnock is going to go on for, isn't it? 😁   Fair point. A big part of longevity and how long you maintain your physical fitness, mental faculties etc. is down to how active you are and how you exercise the grey matter. She should probably start doing a couple of laps of Sandringham every morning, Captain Tom style. Followed by a leisurely afternoon of sudoku, then an intense evening session of Call of Duty. 😉    
    • Yeah it’s not the same scenario as your Aunty Doris that lived in sheltered accommodation in Redcar with just a portable tv a fan heater and a pile of Gardner’s World magazines for company, that pines for her recently departed husband, complains about the food and doesn’t get on with the rest of the residents, especially that Maureen who drinks Campari on Friday afternoons and insists on being a member of every club and committee going. 
    • I wonder how many goals will be Djed Spence's fault today, and those that aren't, still are 🤔😭
    • I kind of feel sorry for him too, he's been sold the vision with his contract under Woodgate, sold as part of the future of this club. And I'm a big Hayden Coulson fan, I'd definitely prefer it if he could show what he could do as a left back as I think he'd have a better chance of making it here. But in a team filled with inconsistent plodders, you don't take out one of your brightest lights to accommodate someone else. Last season the shoe was on the other foot, we weren't gonna drop Coulson for Bola for the sake of it. If he's gonna play for Warnock, he's got to find a way to make himself useful in a team with Bola in it. James Husband had the exact same issue when he was brought here, he had to find a way to make a name for himself with George Friend in the side, he didn't do that so he had to leave.
    • I'm already like many of our players...thinking of Summer holidays, (staycation obviously). I'll be watching these remaining games more out of idle interest, than any real hope or expectation. I'd like to see Coulson given some games, along with any promising U23s, just to see how we play with some different names in the team. Obviously (hopefully?) it'd be good for team morale if we won, or got a result of any kind, but I won't be that bothered if we help Barnsley's play-off bid.
