    Default Do we need more of an identity??

    Just feel we need more of an 'identity' as a side next season. What I mean is for example, Swansea are known for their sort of 'Dutch total free-flowing attacking football', similar to Blackpool last season, who also had a sort of 'Wimbledon crazy gang' element to them with Holloway in charge. Norwich were/are known for their real team spirit/togetherness as a club (like Davies alluded to) and QPR for example with Warnock in charge and Taarabt as the playmaker, giving them a certain identity.

    Just feel we lack this sort of real 'identity' as a team. I suppose the only way we are really known is for hot-headed Davies blowing off in the press fairly regularly :/ But I'd rather not have this as our 'identity'. Maybe it comes from a lack of real characters in the team, the youth/inexperience of the team or a lack of real team shape/style/pattern of play. But just feel we need to cultivate 'something about us'.

    I think we need to be know as the team who never lose and score bucket loads of goals in the process

    Seriously though, whatever identity the side has I think we should play to our strengths rather than going out to cancel out the opposition. Billy has put too much emphasis on stopping weaker sides like this when it should be them who are shot scared of us.

    I want to be known as the sort of side which comes at the opposition in waves and never says die, with the majority of games like the Swansea 2nd half performance - give everyone total hell and hope the refs are up to it. Oh, and I guess I'd like our team to do the talking for us, not our manager.

    We're known as a fast counter attacking side, little does anyone know how bad we are at it, no matter how many times we try to do it.

    I think we've the identity of being a side other teams fear (for some reason) and work very hard to beat (which is no rareity). But teams who beat us always seem to think they've done really well to do so. Essentially we're not quite as good as we, or our opponents, think we are.

    We're the Liverpool of the Championship.

    I agree, we need a new identity.

    We lost our identity in the season just gone. In 09/10 we were playing the Swansea role....but for some reason the quality of football deteriorated right after the famous West Brom victory.

    If Billy stops moaning to the press I think we have the foundations for great all-round togetherness next season. Certainly there is good spirit and work-ethic within the current squad.....we have a lot of local lads who are growing up together.

    Having said all this, I think promotion can be achieved without a strong identity - good players are more important. I don't believe Newcastle or West Brom had an especially strong identity. If anything Newcastle was a club in total disarrary (some people argue this galvanised the team on the pitch but I don't buy it) and West Brom bundled in loads of mid-season signings. It was really the quality of the players which differentiated them from the chasing pack.

    "We are Nottingham Forest - and people should be afraid of coming here."

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    We need to get some consultants in the crystalise our brand identity, values and message to help us really resonate with our consumers.

    "Unbeaten at home. Unbeaten at home. We're Nottingham Forest, unbeaten at home"

    That would do for starters

    I think we should be known for our Melton Mowbray Pork Pies.

    We should throw them at the opposition.

    We just need to get back to the free flowing football we were playing mid-way through the 2009/10 season, and we will regain some form of identity
