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 ....

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). ☹️

Was that when Maccarone lost his glasses at the riverside?

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

An Oxo cube in hot water plus cayenne pepper fixes anything

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.

    • Agree with Sandy..  we are inconsistent but some of that is relative inexperience and hopefully that will decrease. Hopefully we can get a few more U23's out on loan to push them on a bit and fill the squad up for next year..  we have the makings of a good team and if we can get the final pieces of the jigsaw, then we will be there or thereabouts . Would also like to mention that discipline seems to have improved significantly, halfway through season and only one red card, which was rightly overturned and most of the yellows were for "proper" fouls rather than dissent or other daft stuff..  Sam will always be Sam but having watched Souness, Kennedy, Glover, Hammy, Boam and other nasty boys, he is very mild compared to them and I think all good teams have someone like him, so I think it should be acknowledged he is the best Egyptian we've had   
    • Think they are nailed on to stay up now that they have fewer injuries...  Ol Gravel Voice might be a walking sphincter but he gets the best out of his players (except against City). wouldn't be surprised if current bottom 3 went down, but if anyone else gets dragged in, most likely Brighton or Barcodes
    • Burnley have 19 points from just 10 scored goals. That’s some achievement. 10 more goals and they’ll probably avoid relegation. 
    • Good opening post I hope to see your thread again for Rotherham 🙂 1:Team and formation?  Exactly same side as he started at Nottingham Forrest as believe its best side we have baring Fletcher.  2: Is it good to change a winning team?  Nope it isn't unless player is really knackered  3: Will Morsy get another yellow card for just being Morsy?  Yeah he will  4: Can Britt follow up on an above par performance?  I think/hope as his contract is up we may see the best of Britt as he sure will wanna try earn biggest deal he can in the summer and we are his stage for showtime  5: Is Saville finally going to be what we bought him for.. A goal contributer? 4 goals and 4 assists so far... With Morsey it enables him to burst in the box with great effect so defiently be more of a goal scoring contribution from him  6: Iron Maiden or Def Leppard?  Iron Maiden 7: Our last handful of games this season are easy on paper .. If we keep within reach of the play off spots .. Can we push for it in the last 8-10 games? Yeah it's just our strength in depth see at LB dropping from Bola to Coulson is downgrade then at RB Dijksteel provides defensive steal remove him for Spence we are a lot worse defensively. Then in Midfield losing someone so Wing is required is downgrade. The reason Norwich are where they are is due to having two quality players in every position really.  8: Who is this mystery signing (winger who can play as a striker)?  It has got to be Grosicki don't think any other fit the words Warnock said.
