  1. 1. Boro V Nottingham Forest



Recommended Posts

Barring injuries I'd stick with the same team. I think AK has learnt from the Sheffield game and has realised consistency is key. I think we will win this one, it'll be tough Forest are good at home and have really picked up some form under Dougie Freedman. I'm going for a 2-1 win, Bamford and Leadbitter. Also call me crazy, but I think we have an excellent chance to go unbeaten between now and the seasons end!

Omeruo wont be near the team for a while and AK has said as much \

Where and when did Karanka say this?

I was speaking to forest fans the other day they honestly think their gonna turn us over and we are not the favorites to win the game. You know what though i think forest are a poor team great individuals but not a team effort so if karanka keeps his team reasonably settled maybe bring vossen or ayala in and get carayol on the bench for the last 10 minuets of the game, baring in mind they have a nice pitch to play on not a bog i think well beat them 2-0. UTB

My Forest mate (he doesn't do bravado) is happy to take a point from this game. He understands it's not enough for them, but he doesn't expect much more.

Funny thing is im at uni in derby and derby fans want us to win even though its bad for them in terms of promotion race just so they can laugh at forest.

This is a massive weekend for us. I just hope that the confidence gained from the Millwall match doesn't turn into cockiness.

 

If we are not 100% up for this forest will do us. They are a different proposition under Freeman than they were under Pearce.

 

If all goes well this weekend we could go 4 points clear of third. If we have a poor weekend we could end up in 4th position.

 

Think its all about attitude

Well they are idiots, surely they can laugh louder if they are in the prem next season? Us winning may prevent that.

 

true that but their is 2 automatic spots, we win and derby win all is well anyway for them still second in the league and getting away from people below who will slip up ud think due to nerves. The other thing is you gotta remember derby n forest fans hate each other always looking to get one over on each other.

Im worried about this one. Apart from the last game they have been playing well. I can see a draw

I'm going to predict a win in every game from now until the end of the season because that's what we have to be aiming for. If we do that we win the title regardless of other teams

 

3-0

Hello all - I hope nobody has a problem me posting this here.

 

A piece on how Forest have set up so far under Dougie Freedman.

 

http://taktiek.uk/dougie-freedmans-4-3-3/

 

I do expect some changes though - against more possession oriented teams like yourselves, we are often happy to give away possession, sit deep and counter attack. We did this in our recent win against Bournemouth at home. In our last two games since this was written, both full-back's of Reading & Charlton have caused us problems bombing forward, a Charlton goal coming from one, leaving Fox in 2-on-1 situations often - but that will definitely lead to an end-to-end game as it means leaving Antonio with space to run into.

 

Looking forward to the match. I love the work Aitor Karanka has done with you guys, his eyes are enough to fall in love with the man. It will be Bamford's first game back at The City Ground, so it will be interesting to see the reception he gets.

 

Hope it fills you all in to what to expect from Forest, good luck for the rest of the season fellas.

    • If it's true, I'd ask everyone what I've said before; is the £20m we receive from Fry alone going to solve our problems? A question for the club is how much is just to keep us going and not to actually begin moving the club as a whole in the other direction? Is a big transfer fee on its own good for us or is it just going to be burnt on other players' wages? Would accepting a lower fee on a player like Britt, Saville, Shotton or otherwise be better for the finances as they actually reduce our wage bill by a significant amount? Also bear in mind that Fry represents everything that's potentially good about the way we move forward, bringing in high potential youngsters, giving them first team football and building a side around them. He's one of those that has already shown in probably the most significant way (vs. other young players) what he's capable of at this level. At such an early stage of the transition process, I'd ask if there is significant value right now for us to let a player go for a good value. I'm not convinced. The wage bill will still be high from players who don't represent what we are now trying to achieve so we'll still have a problem without removing them from the squad. Recent history has also taught me not to trust the club to spend any significant amount of money well. We have a good player right now in Fry, bringing in £20m on its own does not represent a good decision, it's what we do with that money that will ultimately represent whether or not a deal of that ilk would be good for us.

    • I couldn't watch the game (sounds like I was lucky with that). Just watched the highlights and it looked like a fair result. We created one and half chance the entire game and thats just not good enough. Awful. Briliant header by Fletcher though 🙂 
    • Yeah I agree with that, he's absolutely miles away from that level. I think Fry has looked good in the Championship but I don't think he's set the world alight either.  If I was a Premier league scout I'd be happy to buy him but I'd ideally want to see him develop at Championship level on loan for another couple of seasons.
