The loss of points agreed in principle by Derby and the EFL added to the satisfaction of last nights victory.

Has it been confirmed that Hughton has left Forest?

Not confirmed, but John Percy is about as reliable as they come for  football journalists

Interesting that NW himself stated they played like NW side. So NW does have some idea what a team should look and play like.. That’s putting in a good shift for each other.. 

It was a scrappy game with far to many unnecessary bookings for me. Low fitness levels. Poor play decisions, dear me get your head up, pass more. Not enough quick passing and too many sloppy ones. No obvious leader at set pieces or in midfield. Not enough balls into the box. 


That said there was a lot more determination and belief and a willingness to get dirty. At the final whistle they demonstrated the game actually meant something to them. 

The fans drove the game. Forest who turned against there club and BORO who lifted team spirt. Credit to the BORO fans for yet another great shift. 

If this is to mean anything they need 3 points from the next game and nothing short of 6 over the next 3 games.

The playoff push is back on track. Great to see Sporar get his thunder strike and Hernandez get his gift will boost their introduction to our squad. Meanwhile Sikli did some good stuff 

Points 9 from 7 (1.2 points) goals 8 for, 8 against is hardly play off form.  It’s a long way to go and there is some signs of promise but I don’t take much from this game as Forest, although they tried hard are pretty dire.

Really enjoyed that tonight, I thought we broke with pace, at times silly passing let in Forest

Andrez scored a cracking goal to go in 1-0at HT

2nd half we stood our ground as Forest tried to unsettle us, we stood firm & came back at them getting a 2nd to take the points back to Teesside, gerrrrrrrrrriiiiiiinnnnnn there 

Need another 2 wins in 2 games to get around 1.66 points avg and I think given the reaction at the end of the game it’s quite possible. The BORO fans were superb..

Pretty similar to how we usually play, pretty poorly with a few minutes where we really show our quality sprinkled in. Until Warnock is gone I think that's unfortunately what we can expect, and we just have to hope the moments of quality we can take advantage of like we did today. 

Think we had a couple of really good bits of play right at the start of the second half that should have resulted in goals, Hernandez shooting when Sporar was free in the middle & then Crooks pass being too heavy after a great run.

Other than that it was the standard fare we've come to expect really.

I could stomach that better if we were solid in defence!

Still, we really should beat Blackpool and be back among the top half pack.

I always worry about Blackpool they always seem to have our number as far back as the game when Adam (when he only looked in his 40s) destroyed us at home. 

It wasn't pretty but great to get the 3 points and it was nice to see the luck being on our side (the howler) for a change. Hopefully the win will help us pick up some momentum and get back into the playoff/promotion race.

One downside from the game just seen on twitter Hernandez got the 7 nation army chant for his name.

We played some nice stuff in patches but looked disjointed during other spells. It’s an improvement and great to see Sporar get off the mark. He looks very confident. Siliki is still off the pace but that will come. Defensively we’ve still got a bit of tuning up to do but with Bola to come back in and the midfield to settle down, you’d expect that to develop over time. I’d like to see us keep a little more of the ball as that would help us defensively. We did that quite nicely at times last night. We won’t get many easier nights than that though Forest we’re appalling.

Given how little Siliki has played, I'm definitely willing to be patient with him.

Last night was more football than he'd played domestically in the rest of 2021 combined.

23 minutes at Rennes and 28 minutes on Saturday.

71 minutes last night, he's bound to be a bit rusty, but he still managed as many decent passes as he made bad ones.

I thought Peltier had quite a good game myself. Prefer Bola obv

Same here - especially considering he usually plays as either a RB or CB.

Once Bola's back I'd rather see him in the middle instead of Hall or Bamba. Also the sooner we get (proper) cover for Bola the better.

Pretty good summary.

I thought we actually played some decent football for the first 15-20 minutes. Then after we scored, we seemed to revert to hoofball - but worse than usual. At times it was more like watching a rugby union game where both sides opt for the chip n' chase style of play.

Felt Forest actually played the better football in the middle of the park (just) and had some decent wide play. Boro were just lucky they were as bad as us in front of goal.

In the end the game was decided by our one bit of quality play in a dangerous position and a defensive howler on Forest's part.

Good result, but still an awful lot of work needed to get us playing as a team.

Siliki showed some flashes of his quality. Clearly he’s technically sound; he just needs to adjust to the pace/tempo of the game and how he fits in with the way we play.

This. He got caught off guard a few times, and there were a few occasions where he didn't quite put enough on his passes. But the quality was clear to see, once he's up to pace (along with Payero) I think our midfield will be a real area of strength.

    • Love this from the cameraman, UTB.
    • Interesting... I did hear the Jordan comments but don't fully understand the technicalities of the whole Derby becoming debt-free and returning stronger thing. Was news to me that the £45m thing was *** (I guess Simon may have heard that from Steve himself...?) I just hope it doesn't dissolve into "Boro are trying to kill Derby" and we get piled on... which is the narrative they're clearly desperate to create. We all know what football fans and pundits are like and most people won't read or understand the details. I'm a Boro fan and I still admit to not fully getting some of it. 
    • Check out the love between Crooks & Payero. Makes me warm and fuzzy inside.
    • The club themselves probably won't come out and make any public statements about the ongoing thing because it gives their side something to argue with. When the Derby fans picked up on the FMTTM post, immediately it was sent to the administrators so they were aware of it. They want the narrative to change and as much as I'd hate to see Derby go out of business, they are playing dirty from a very risky position. The fans are desperate, they're still messaging our fan groups for us to do something about it. I think they're being left in the dark about the entire situation by both sides though. Right now, going by what Simon Jordan said the other day, us and Wycombe are waiting for an offer from the Derby end to try and settle the problem. Also, listening to him speak about it made it sound like the administrators are just trying to do their best to make the club a good asset to sell. The whole thing about them using the government's COVID scheme to push back their debts then putting the club into administration to write them off was seemingly just as dirty a tactic as Morris has been getting up to all along to essentially give the club a way of coming back significantly stronger with any half-decent investor. Walking into a debt-free football club sounds like Christmas day which is exactly why Mr. Ashley is sniffing around and is even willing to make a deal with us to get it done. Gibson looks like he's trying to make sure it's not as easy as that and if they want to do it, they'll have to give us something and quick.
