    I reckon he's a confidence player. The fact Warburton gave him a new contract would suggest he rates him.

    Warburton described Mancienne as a "Rolls Royce" when he was at Brentford.

    Although in the same sentence he was explaining that him playing in midfield was a weakness they exploited

    And what a surprise by the way, Mancienne has a specific position instead of being moved around all the time and he's putting in good performances.

    Only watched a rerun of the Birmingham game, but having been a prolific critic of Mancienne, Id say he's in the form of his Forest career at present.

    Never been so confident having him in the line up, seems to have a much more positive approach to things under MW.

    There you go, thats fucking jinxed it.

    Definitely in a purple patch at the moment, and a well-timed one too given how threadbare we are in that area right now.

    Not directed at you at all MASE, but again, amazing how things improve when they are GIVEN TIME TO.

    "We need more defenders!!" Or maybe we give it more than a handful of games to let a fairly unfamiliar squad settle, and players who haven't played regularly for a while time to find their feet again?

    No wonder this club was debted up to the eyeballs when so many encourage "buy new player" as the instant solution to so many problems.

    “All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a Thousand Enemies, and whenever they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you, digger, listener, runner, prince with the swift warning. Be cunning and full of tricks and your people shall never be destroyed.”

    Does the "give them time" sentiment extend to Darykwa, who to my mind is looking to be either totally inept, or (at best) in a poor run of form?
    And I feel we do need more defenders - we need at least 1 new full back on whom we can rely in that left-back role, for when Traore/Fox/Cohen are absent through injury (as at present, and for the foreseeable future).

    Yep. Daryk has looked mostly wank, but it's still very early days for him and, whilst he aint young, he aint old either. As many of us have said, this is a "work in progress" season, one which we've needed for years now, but one which might actually FINALLY get chance to flourish. that's the current process, no reason to not give it a chance with him too at the mo.

    We do need more, better defensive players. But anyone who still can't see there's absolutely no need to rush that this season is beyond help now. We can cope, we've always been able to, and consistancy + stability will reap it's own rewards. Add & integrate at the right time & price, not at the first opportunity out of some BS fear of relegation.

    We've needed a centre-back with experience to step up. Long may it continue. Much was hoped of a young Mance but its still not too late to have a good Prem career with us. Hopefully he will provide a base for guys like Worrall & co.
