Recommended Posts

...yeah...

It has Monk written all over it .. No clue who is the best 11 and we cannot defend against crosses... De ja vu

Shotton playing left back with Browne ahead isn't too bad as you think Shotton will cope better with no cover ahead of him than Coulson/Bola did. I imagine it will be a bit like when he was playing with Adama ahead of him. 

Otherwise I think it needed freshening up and they are the only options we really have.

It smacks of a small squad who had a game that didn’t go too well on Saturday. He doesn’t have the options that Monk had.

Can't see anything but a defeat tonight. 

 

We have a soft underbelly and against a team like PNE if we don't fight and win the 50/50's we'll get turned over. 

0-2

Its a strange choice of team. It smacks of Woodgate being not sure what to do next.

It seemed a bit like that when changing formation and now bringing Tav and Browne in from the off. We look a mile away from the team that drew at Luton. He needs to find a winning formula at the same time as building a system and if this team scuffs a win I wont be moaning that he got desperate. Its if he does a Monk, scrambles around weekly for a different formula but doesnt give performances or results, that I will truly believe in AK time.

Ground 2/3 empty, how do you go from premier league to this in 3 years?

Sky red button appears to be broken too, so looks like I'm having the night off.

Actually it's on riverside live so I guess it's not meant to be on the red button?

 

Also today I have learned you don't even need to be on a vpn to watch them..

    • Interesting how the gazette are starting to run Pearson articles... 
    • Didn't realise they had started to turn the corner, a few years back it didn't matter what form they were in when playing us we would never beat em, this winless run started in 1974 & finished in 1999 We fared better since but I don't like playing Forest at all, it's always one fixture, Leeds been the other when in the same league, that I look for & hope they're out the way early doors 
    • Hourihane is very good and proven , LM LW AM . 3 year younger than Grosicki at 29 .
    • I have to stay up to watch my Buccs beat The Saints! .. I can watch the game and still manage 3 hours of sleep before work 😛  Anyone else watching it?
    • So, it's time again .. the time where Assombalonga misses more sitters than on a normal day, cause we are away to Nottingham Forest, his former club. I'm just glad we never play Peterborough! It's this Wednesday at 7 PM weird British time btw, if you are into self masochism and other forms of self inflicted agony. Forest have finally gotten their sh1t together and their last 5 games = W W D D D, a nice unbeaten run after a terrible start to the season. This must be the result of hiring Chris Hughton.  Our vey own Boro is totally hit or miss these days, but we have still managed to also get 9 points of the last 5 games : L W L W W, so we can only hope it's the winning Boro that shows up. This time it could be nice with a win and a clean sheet ... Who am I kidding, we are nailed to go one down within the first 15 minutes ... as usual ..  I actually predict a draw, cause we haven't had one of those in 12 league games!  The bookies have it as a tight game: 2.65 - 3.15 - 2.85  .. These are the decimal odds for home, draw and away, if you wonder. I don't know the weird odds you guys love, but hey .. put your money on the draw.  In the reverse game at The Riverside, we beat Forest 1-0 (Marvinho) in October, when our stadium still was a fortress that wasn't Karankanized, like when we lost 0-1 to Brum last Saturday! So, let's have some quetions!  1: Which team and formation should NW go with? 2: Are you happy with a draw and why/why not? 3: Will Britt miss a penna? 4: Can Chris Hughton make Forest a play off candidate? 5: Can NW make us a play off candidate? 6: Who will be the first to write "this is a game for Patrick Roberts" and who will be the first to be baffled, when Folarin is subbed on in the 88th minute and Roberts aint? 7: Burger King or Mc Donalds?  If you want a look from the other site (pun intended) here you go: https://forums.vitalfootball.co.uk/forums/100-forest.60/ (no Boro thread up, when I was writing this) UTB!
