    Default Reasons to be cheerful part 10

    Everyone is a bit down after another abysmal performance so here, in ascending order of importance, are ten good reasons to be cheerful:

    1. A season which has managed to produce at least seven shades of shite is almost over. Hallelujah!
    2. However bad Bournemouth was, we have achieved at least some semblance of a professional football outfit -- compared to the disgraceful rabble that Brazil inherited.
    3. Two new players -- Osborn and McLaughlin -- have been blooded and will at least be decent additions to the first team squad. Neither of them cost any significant money.
    4. We have a very clear fix on all the players currently employed by the club who are (a) not up for it and/or (b) not upto it. Anyone with an IQ above 50 can identify the members of the current squad who either can't play football or are too gutless to try.
    5. There are significant signs that the club is finally, finally, finally developing a coherent structure for developing young talent and moving promising players towards first team action.
    6. There are significant signs that the club just might develop a robust off-field management structure with a serious CEO.
    7. We have a core group of utterly magnificent fans. As a foreigner who listens to games on the radio, I'm constantly overwhelmed by the fact that what I hear, even when we're being humiliated away from home, are fabulous Forest fans singing their hearts out for the team.
    8. We will probably start next season with the best core group of players we've had since we fell out of the Premier League: Darlow, De Vries, Lichaj, Cohen, Wilson, Hobbs, Lascelles, Reid, Vaughan, Lansbury, Paterson, Osborn -- that's a terrific inner group at this level. Add a couple of decent strikers who can actually score goals and perhaps a fast aggressive winger and supplement it with young players coming through the ranks and you have a squad that is fit to challenge for automatic promotion.
    9. We have a really good owner. Yes, Fawaz has made mistakes -- the sacking of SOD being the worst of them. But he's honest, enthusiastic, ambitious and a genuine football nut who has really bonded with the club. Flawed he may be, but compared to the kind of creeps who own English clubs these days, we are blessed to have him. If you don't agree, ask a Leeds fan.
    10. We have a new manager coming in who's intelligent, self-confident, articulate and charismatic -- and who also just happens to be one of the greatest half-dozen players ever to wear the Garibaldi. None of us knows how he'll do but what is certain is that he'll start off with 99 per cent of Forest fans 100 per cent behind him. In the mad world that football has become, it will be really something to begin a great adventure with a manager who's very presence sends a tingle down the spines of every true Forest fan.
    Let the games begin. Let the good times roll.

    I'm just kind of thankful we had something to at least aim for this season, I'd hate to go the whole season as a mid-table club with no realistic targets to aim for, just kind of go into each game with nothing at stake.

    It's always good to look on the bright side. I've renewed my season ticket for the umpteenth season too. What else would I do on a Saturday afternoon.

    Thing is, until the last 2 or 3 games, few clubs in the Championship have had a game with nothing at stake this season - maybe Bolton and 'Boro were the first to be neither at risk of relegation or without a hope of the play-offs - so it's hard to feel anything other than frustration at how this season has panned out.
