So he has to score more goals to get in the side. How can he score those goals if he is sat on his arse at home?
He'll do well to improve his goal thread from the stands. Steve Cotterill is crazy.
What an idiot. Hasn't played him since Boxing day but he has to improve his goal threat.
What on? FIFA?! Hes sat at home most game you moron!
"Keep people in who have scored before"
So Mcgugan gets free reign to idle about the pitch because he scored some goals last time. SC is crazy.
Ha Ha what a joke this bloke is turning out to be, how the fuck can he improve his goal threat when he is sitting in the stands steve? play him and stick by him and then maybe then he might start scoring......
"We can play nice football, but it is goals that count."
Well your approach of playing shit football hasn;t brought many goals has it? Try playing some nice football and see if it works....... Its not rocket science.
Starting to lose all respect for SC now.
Mental bastard. Obviously responding to fans here who have been critical of him not having Raddy anywhere near the side in recent games.
And by this logic.........
"That is not just with him, it applies to everyone. When I pick a team to do jobs, you ask certain questions.
"How many goals do they score? And we need goals at the minute."
.................WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU NOT TRY HIM IN A TEAM WHICH HASN'T SCORE IN 10 OF THEIR RECENT GAMES YOU DUMB KUNT?!!!?? ASK THE QUESTION 'HOW MANY GOALS DO THEY SCORE' OF THE FUCKING 11 YOU'VE BEEN FIELDING EVERY WEEK!!!
Someone bring Billy back pls.
Majewski's goalscoring record is shocking for a midefielder who does most of his work in the opponents half. He has scored 7 goals in 82 appearances for Forest and 12 in 153 in his club career. Admittedly he can only improve that if he's given a chance in the team but he really should be more of a goalscoring threat.
Literally just lost all respect for him after reading that article, does the man have any sense at all
Gubba calls on Cotterill to stop talking out of his arse.
He really doesn't have a clue does he?
All very well berating a player, but how is that player supposed to improve a facet of his game when he gets the odd half or hour of a match, out of his normal position?

"Fans call on Cotterill to fuck off"
Forest fans today said that getting hoofball master Steve Cotterill out of the club is still in thier thoughts – but challenged the manager to improve his win return.
Cotterill has recently been a peripheral figure for Nottingham Forest, not beating a single team other than ipswich since the 1st of november or doing anything that can be even remotely construed as "useful".
The former Portsmouth manager remains an unpopular figure with the City Ground supporters.
But he was not even good enough to deserve to sit on the bench at West Ham last weekend.
And Forest fans want to see the manager improve just about everything if he wants to earn thier respect.
"He is in our thoughts, sadly he is part of the club. But we have to look at things and ask 'what is the end product?'," said a Forest fan.
"That is not just with him, it applies to everyone. When we watch such dreadful performances, devoid of everything, and a manager doing a worse job than Gary Megson - you ask certain questions.
"How many goals do they score? And we need goals at the minute."
Lewis McGugan had been going through a dip in form of his own, but Cotterill intimated that he – and one or two others – may have hung on to their places because despite being awful for the entire season, and contributing less than a beer mat in the main stand bar, they may have scored a goal at some point a year ago.
McGugan in particular responded with an outstanding strike – and a much-improved performance – at Upton Park. This isnt hard though, a traffic cone thats been run over by a truck wouldve been more use in recent games
"We look around at the manager and there might be somebody who has not done well ever in thier career," said a Forest fan. "But his past record might suggest that he doesnt have it in him to get a side to nick a goal, he is fond of hoofball, he likes to pick favourites and the same team even if it did get thrashed the week before. He also lacks any kind of idea's or plan"
"So it is about having a look at the end product. We can play nice football, but we dont - it is goals that count but we dont score them"
"His (Cotterills) record says that he does not win alot of games. Winning games, scoring goals and assists are important, there is a lot in that."
Cotterill has won 5 games this season, all 5 in the Championship overall, amid 16 league games and 2 cup appearances.

Something people forget about Raddy is that he is just a sprog - 25 in age but just look at him - he's deffinately a late developer and whereas the Rooney's of this world were men at 17 Raddy won't be hitting his prime until he's 27-30, and as a player who doesn't rely on pace he's likely to be a Sheringham type player who could play well into his 30's.
Yes he needs some snap down him and to beef up a bit, but the coaching staff should be sorting that, and when his nackers drop and he'll become a different class so long as he's a boss who can keep him on the straight and narrow.
Pleaseeeeee post that on the NEP website Hulk lol
Hey, steve, heres a top tip....if a player is playing badly, and the team isnt scoring goals, and as a result cant win a game...after a long stretch- keeping them in the team and telling them they are magnificent is a RETARDED idea.
You can do that for 2 or 3 games, thats sort of understandable- hoping its just maybe an off day. Fair enough. But keeping them in during a prolonged run of such utter shit shows an inability on your part to change anything.
Which is quite annoying really, being as you were brought in to CHANGE our fortunes.
Thanks for taking us down to league 1, good work steve!
I really wish we'd just take the financial hit and sack this clown. Just sell wes and mcgugan and pay this moron off. Its worth it.
Steve has also called on Paul Smith to save more shots.
I'm really quite annoyed reading this, Majewski is one of the few players capable of putting the ball on the strikers toe, but its ok, i'll play Greening for the sideways pass, i'll play Boateng because i've never seen him in the penaly area, now i wont play you Majewski but i expect you to score more goals, i used to defend you man but your'e getting disiilusioned, i really now do believe you dont know what your'e talking about. Come on Frank you know what to do, do the right thing, we all respect you but the longer you leave this farce to run, just like neighbours and home and away, the viewing figures are gonna slide. I dont wanna be a channel 5 team. Listen to us all Frank i'm the voice of thousands
Every time I hear him I feel worse
Everyone's mentioned Raddy not playing which is bang on correct, but even if he was in the team he's not the sort of midfielder you rely on to get goals.
Unlike McGugan who can run at defenders and lash them in, Majewski would be suited better to floating around deeper, collecting the ball and spraying it out wide or sending a runner through the middle. He may as well say Greening or Cohen needs to get more goals. Does he even know the different jobs midfielders do?
The man is a utter moron who'll just keep playing the same team regardless. He's like a bloke who has sat by his front door every night for 21 years, waiting for his wife to return to him after running away with Adebola.
Thanks Robbie, i'd trust you to pick a better team mate, my sentiments exactly
i have honestly never known anyone involved in the proffesional game speak less sense than cotterill. he is in way over his head at this level of football.
