We beat forest with pace , effort and will to win tonight .
whoever it is would have to be good at those traits .
Even Britt can not be critisised tonight , he put a shift in and scored .
Would we offer him another contract on lesser terms ?
Only Neil will know that .
Delighted with that win. Keeps us in the mix for the playoffs. Oh for two or three quality signings.
Bola is unrecognisable. Full credit to him and the coaching team. Howson was at his best tonight. Been a fan of his since watching him at Leeds. Tonight was one of the few times I have watched him and though I remember why I liked you.
A thoroughly deserved victory & typical Boro who were cruising had us biting our fingernails for the final few minutes
We should have been 4 goals clear & here we were hanging on
But we came through & winning at a team on 7 games unbeaten run, apart from the final 3 minutes, quite comfortably
Well done Boro & NW
Thats kind of what I meant. They had a lot of possession and passed it around quite nicely, but without really troubling us defensively.
Whereas we had to chase a lot, but when we did counter we looked pacey and dangerous.
Don't think they played the better football really, by and large they played the football we let them play, in front of us and horizontally. We didn't let them threaten at all, which is what we set up to do, they can have as much of the ball as they want in their own half!
Thought we were excellent today! Howson MOTM, Tav 2nd place and probably Bola in 3rd, thought he was quality defensively again.
Special shout out to Britt too, one of his best games ever for us.
Also I see Forest fans calling the red card soft but IMO he should have been off for the Stamp seconds before anyway so it evens out.
Think they got very lucky card wise, you could argue Ribeiro should have already been off & Knockaert could have had 2 yellows in 2 seconds with his stunt at the end.
