Nottingham Forest v Boro 1-2 (Assombalonga, Saville)

Recommended Posts

Here's the clip, doesn't look like a bite to me.

If he'd actually been bitten, he'd have reacted far more than that.

Didn't see any incident that looked like that, but plenty of Forest fans mentioning it on Twitter.

Was during the red card incident it seems. A bit too blurry to really see

Does Britts mouth even remotely open for him to bite? His mouth seems closed to me so how is he biting him?

That Burrow looks like a suspect account, Talksport journo with a few hundred followers? 

Can't tell anything from the video but Britt was definitely looking to rile Ribierio, could have been sent off earlier on for the same thing. Might have dug his chin in between his shoulder blades at a push.

 

Everyone to a man was class tonight. Can't argue with 3 points down there. If Britt played like that most weeks we'd be flying.

There's the tail end of the stamp as well btw so I hope if they look into the "biting", they look into the stamp too.

I literally can't see anything remotely akin to a bite, am I going blind? His head is on his back, how does that equate to a bite? Just seems like Forest fans being salty tbh.

Nah, looks like he's just angry that rib has just stamped on his team mate. 

Although it would make a good headline: "Bitt Assombalonga"...

That's not a bite in a million years, it looks more like he goes to grab him from behind and the player pulls his chest and head into his back.

Great win last night, wasn't expecting much given Forest's recent run of form and when I saw Britt starting I was like "oh no, here we go again" but he surprised me and actually scored! Still would rather he went in this window though.

We really are a chalk and cheese team. There was no comparison between this game and the Birmingham game. That Ribeiro is a horrible little **** if he was to be bitten by anyone they would need a rabies jab

If you were going to "bite" someone you would pick arms, legs, hand, ears, nose or any other fleshy protuberance. How on earth can you bite someone between the shoulder blades?

There is nothing to sink your teeth into and your jaw couldn't possibly open wide enough for you to clamp on to flesh. Apart from all that Britt is then least likely person in Football that I can think of who would do something like that.  

I didn't notice if Forest players were wearing those Stat vests but if so Britt would have got a mouthful of GPS tracker rather than a piece of Yuri Ribiero.

I don't think that's a bite. More a push in the back but surely there would've been a reaction if Britt's teeth had got anywhere near him!

Anyway, the game I thought was spot on apart from conceding the late goal. A complete contrast to the performance against Brum. It was like a different team, the whole mentality and attitude was spot on. We really frustrated them and despite what some people think, I actually find our style of play quite entertaining to watch. A lot of pressure without the ball and trying to retain it and move up the pitch with it.

Even right after another flare up, he was smiling like he always does. Just can't see it at all.

    • DZ I do not know if you are having issues at home, work or otherwise but of late you have been far more aggressive than usual and I simply can not allow you to respond in such a way towards another member of the forum purely for his opinion. There are many other ways you can reply and respond to matters you do not agree with but this time you are pushing the boundaries of decency. The swear filter does work but you intended to state what you have just done so. Give it some thought about how you have been on the forum and try and calm down. Please take this as a public warning that this type of interaction will not be tolerated towards good people. Your'e a good lad and a valued member of the forum don't bring issues you may be suffering onto the forum for lashing out purposes. Hopefully you may send Blanco a pm offering an apology. Believe me this is not up for debate and I will not get into a conversation about it. Thanks
    • How important do you think a captain is to the side both on and off the pitch? Very important on the pitch, the captain should be the managers right hand man when they are not carrying out his instructions to hold players to account. He should also be the player who puts an arm around young players when they make a mistake and let them know its okay just learn from it but try make amends. Communication and organising on the pitch is also a big part of the role. Off the pitch, not so sure.  Do you think a different decision at the start of the season would leave us in a better position now? Yes do you see Britt doing any of the above particularly in difficult moments to try drag us through? then let me ask you, how many times did lead bitter do all of the above?   Would you change captains in the middle of the season right now or do you think that could lead to dressing room division? Yes change it, might help our fortunes and might actually stop some of the silly mistakes if someone holding people accountable.  Who would you like to see take over if you would? Morsy without a doubt, I see a lot of Leadbitter in him taking one for the team when opposition are looking dangerous and if you watch him he communicates with his team mates constantly. He was also captain at Wigan for 3 years before coming here and Wigan fans had nothing but praise for him which tells you a lot. 
    • Problem is one we had one foreign manager in ever, you can guarantee who ever follows Warnock will be English. If I was Gibson I would do what I did when he hired karaka find a assistant coach that's been under a great manager for a long time and see if he take the job. We have a mid table squad now thanks to Warnock, we have the chance to go for something new and fresh not old and stale for the next manager. The only thing I would do is try and hold on to Ronnie Jepson if Warnock is retiring, lets not bring in an inexperienced assistant manager if this manager is new lets give him good support and advice when needed so that if things get difficult we dont have a Woodgate situation.     Having said the above I think Warnock should stay on for the rest of this season, there's no harm in what hes doing to the club hes brought a doomed club from relegation to upper mid table team in the course of a season and got rid of some of the problems with the side in clayton and friend whos legs were shot plus tried to get rid of britt who is a big problem as he's expensive and not firing. Hes also brought in players like Morsey, Hall, Kebano Watmore and Bolasie who have added to the team who other managers will actually think are solid championship players next season. Maybe next season he can turn midtable into promotion or playoffs if he stays on. 
    • 70 Minutes. 70 *** MINUTES. 70 *** minutes to make changes after what, realising that hoof ball and high balls into the box wasn't working against a tall and strong Cardiff defence, shock *** horror. Neil Warnock, hang your head in shame. You got it totally *** wrong yesterday and I'm still annoyed, we could have easily won that if you'd just done what every Boro fan could see needed doing at half time. Sorry, but that's not a point gained in my eyes yesterday, that was 2 points lost. Oh and Britt can *** off forever, I never want to see that useless, lazy, arrogant *** in a Boro shirt ever again!
    • Ramirez signed for Southampton when Nigel Adkins was manager, and Hull when Steve Bruce was manager. Stuani and Kike are not flair players. But as a counterpoint, we've signed Kebano who is a French flair player whilst having the oldest most English manager possible.
