Soul depressing singer Jake Bugg is a famous son of Nottingham

How could we mention Nottingham and not mention that guy (Disclaimer: that might not actually be Robin Hood and DEFINITELY isn't me in my spare time :cool: )

 

This next guy isn't famous, but i believe he should be:

View from the other side;

 

Who is Boros biggest threat?

-Danny Graham. Chalobah is bound to have a good game

 

-Danny Graham will no doubt score & I suspect Chalobah & Leadbitter to do well against us if they play for obvious reasons.

 

-Anybody capable of running round and closing down.

 

-I'd say Adomah but he didn't play yesterday, I'm guessing he's injured. Leadbitter will run the midfield against us.

 

-That Carayol lad. Always looks dangerous in the clips I see of him. Forest will let him run at us as well, so he'll be good.

 

Albert Adomah:

Who is Forests main threat?

 

-Paterson. Abdoun if he decides to turn up. Also Majewski if we decide to play it on the floor. Unlikely though.

 

-Billy Davies - not to you though

 

-Paterson providing we let him run at defenders

 

-Jamie Patterson is our only real threat at the minute with so many of our midfield & back four out injured we've been almost relying entirely on him

 

-Patterson

 

 

 

Score predictions?

 

1-1

 

0-0

 

0-0 is about as optomistic I dare be at the moment.

 

5-0 Boro

 

Boro to sneak it 1-0 or 2-1

 

Now is the time to beat us

 

3-0 Boro

 

0-0, if we're lucky.

 

(they sound about as optimistic as we do :P )

 

Where will forest finish this season

 

-Should be in the playoffs. Probably, with our tactics, will be 7th.

 

-Fingers crossed the Championship

 

-8th

 

-7th

 

6th-8th

 

The club are giving the fans free travel for the game too so they should bring a decent following hopefully

Questions:

 

Will we ever score again?

 

Can we keep another clean sheet at home?

 

Rock, Paper or scissors?

 

Also Jamesp wanted to add this one the end but there was over the Max. amount of images on it so here it is:

Interesting usage of the double CM(D) pairing there BiB. Would have thought they sat back far to much to be an effective combination.

Don't you find that there is to large a disconnect between your CMs and your AMs?

 

CM(D) play really deep. Like, almost DM deep at times.


Also reading that Forest thread, they really are negative.

 

They sound exactly like we've sounded lately.

They are negative, but very funny with it. Much funnier than that Ipswich lot

Yeah, they were awful, i went on their boards being nice and friendly and all they did was look to provoke me, was a terrible forum layout too

I'm from Nottingham. And until a couple of seasons ago had never seen us beat them. Bit of a derby game for me, hope we wallop them

Keep the same team as Saturday with the exception of Adomah in for Ledesma.

 

Few interesting stats

 

Dimi has 100% clean sheet record in the league games he's started this season

 

Boro have won 100% of games that Danny Graham has scored in this season.

 

Steele has never seen defeat from the bench this season.

 

Boro have scored an average of 2 goals per game since Higgy's appointment of assistant coach.

 

Muzzy has improved 200% since being dropped then brought back. (Only fair to assume the same will happen to Adomah)

 

Can't see past a Boro victory here

 

:d:d:d:d

Hopefully the confidence gained from breaking our goal drought can push us on for a strong finish to the season now.

 

I'd agree with bringing Albert back into the team, I'm not going to pretend to be the most analytical football supporter but for me you've got to play your best players. Hopefully the public telling off will spur Albert on in the same way it has Muzzy.

Carayol had an injury when he came off on Saturday so he might not be available v Forrest unfortunately. Without him or Adomah on either wing then we surely put in a limp performance like we did v Leeds with Kamara and Main on the wings.

In fairness he did say after the game he should be fine for Tuesday.

It was his hip flexor and he expected to be fine for Tuesday, fingers crossed he is.

    • After reading the gazette and the headlines “returning stars” I feel so much more confident about the team as they set there sights on Hull “ to repay patient fans”. In my opinion it’s a done deal so I’m off to place a wager on beating Hull. I could kick myself at times knowing all I needed to do was be patient and sooner or latter the team would turn up and everything would be alright. I can feel the spring in my step returning and I can finally settle down and start planning on a Merry Xmas.
