    We aren't going up, we aren't going down. We are bang average but we have our favourite bloke in charge and for the first time in ages we don't seem to be on the verge of absolute, world ending, disaster.

    Kick back, support your club and enjoy it.

    Same as the back end of last season under GB. Had some cracking away days and just enjoyed my day out, win, lose or draw.

    YOU REDS

    I wish I could just enjoy it, I really do in the way you mention. But it's just inbuilt into me not to enjoy it when Forest lose, particularly if we've played badly.

    Very different feeling when you go to games isn't it?
    A day out with your mates, a few beers, loads of laughs, a good sing and shout to let of steam. I've never had a bad day at the footy overall.
    Gotta pity those who don't have any of that really.

    Bus into town, a cheeky half at the world renowned Trent Bridge Inn, a beef or pork cob from Relish on Pavilion Road, then the walk to the ground that never fails to excite.

    Watching Forest at the world famous City Ground, the home of legends.

    Win, lose or draw, what's a better way of spending a Saturday afternoon?

    I wish I could enjoy it too, but sadly there will always be someone moaning we haven't done well enough in some way shape or form sucking all the positivity and enjoyment of it out of me.

    You know the sort.

    I wonder if this air of defeatism would be so popular if our manager's name wasn't Stuart Pearce.

    If it was someone we knew was not doing any positive work at the club? Yeah things would be different.

    No defeatism from me.

    I revel in the fact that we have a genuine "Forest Man" in charge of the club.

    You should pop down the ground and see for yourself what an air of defeatism feels like...

    We CAN'T enjoy it right now, that's the thing, I'd love if we were playing good football throughout the match but we're not, it's depressing to see us play so bad with such good players.

    Just looked at the last three seasons Div 2 final League tables,

    45 points you're safe 2013/14
    55 points you're safe 2012/13
    49 points you're safe 2011/12 (Ignored Portsmouth who were deducted 10 points)

    So let's go for the highest (55 points) to be almost sure of playing Second division football next season.

    When we've reached this, THEN I'll enjoy the rest of the season !

    You talk utter sense, so therefore should feel ashamed of yourself.

    Forget who is in charge, what happened to supporting your team's manager and wanting them to succeed when it looks tough? Any bad run now anywhere and 'him out!' I never want the Forest manager sacked. I want them to turn it around and succeed. If anything when fans start calling for a manager to be fired it makes me want them succeed even more.



    English football definitely changed. I used to look at Spanish football and think 'goddamn they get through a lot of managers'. Now there is no difference at all. And the fans have changed because of that. And they're armed with the internet. There cant be a bad run anywhere without it starting.

    Get up to 50 points and throw some of the kids in. It's the only time they will get a chance as the pressure will be back on again at the start of next season.

    I wouldn't be so sure about not getting relegated. We have to get as many points on the board in the next 5 matches. All teams below us. If we pick up a good amount of points I will be happy, but if we don't we are right in the dogfight. Our form in the last 21 matches would suggest that we aren't safe just yet.

    I don't get to matches as often as I like- live away and my two boys (at Uni) play footie on Saturdays. BUT- when I do go, I absolutely love it. Couple of beers in the Navigation, chips and gravy, shout and scream like a demented twat. Stuck in traffic listening to post-match phone ins. Have a good moan. Often say "why do we put ourselves through this." But that's what its about. Win, lose draw (and I've been a supporter for nearly 50 years). Maybe I'll change my mind if we dont start winning soon or playing better- but for now, having SP back is the icing on the cake. Agree- kick back and enjoy it!

    There are 2 types of person: radiators and drains.
    I find you to be a drain.

    Agree with all the posts from the people who go games.... I think the only thing that will ever stop me going is price.

    Ironically, what the op has posted is what it has always been about following Forest anyway.
    We've had some good spells and some glory but plenty of mediocre years. I remember going during some of the Clough years and we achieved nothing, started top several years then fell away (sound familiar?).
    Just enjoy it, there's a lot of clubs in a worse position than us.

    In five games' time with 15 more points on the board, most of you moaners will be gone.
