This says it all to me..
"Steve knows what the situation is. He’s not daft. He has been in football a long time. He knows the crack.”
What the absolute hell is this club? It's like he's some lad from down the club who's having a go at running the Boro. Oh hang on..
Club is knackered boys and girls.. it's just a load of lads having a lovely time.
I don't have a huge problem with a player being dropped for acting like a *** behind the scenes so in that sense I'm ambivalent about it as I think he deserves to be in the side but if you're a *** then tough luck. Where I would have a problem is if his poor behaviour is directly linked to being dropped undeservedly in the first place then I might have a little sympathy with him. If that is the case then it would feel like a manager trying to exert control on the group by singling out an easy target - a young lad who hasn't played much and by all accounts is a bit of a loner and probably isn't right at the heart of the group in a social sense. I would also have a slight issue with us signing a bloke who has spent his career doing the same and worse and then making an example out of Spence. It feels a bit like we're sending mixed messages there. The argument that he did it before he signed here doesn't wash with me, you're still signing a player with a history of the same thing.
Forest can't break down teams who sit back and let Forest attack.
It's happened to them so many times this season and that's how we should aim to play, on the counter attack.
Maybe we'll somehow fluke a draw or a win cause Forest have been a bit of a charity to *** teams this season.
But let's be honest, we've got Woodgate in charge so it'll most likely be a 1-0 loss.
