    Default Lansbury gets player of the month as Freedman gets pipped at the post

    http://www.nottinghamforest.co.uk/ne...d-2316804.aspx

    Does this mean that Norwich will go on a major fall missing the playoffs, We will take their place and Lansbury will be sent off in the next game and get a 3 match ban

    Should be OK. Lansbury's curse was backdated from the start of the season.

    I think Lansbury was careful to target his curse.

    What a dreadful trophy. Have a giant Sky Bet ad for your mantelpiece.

    Did Pearce get manager of the month early in the season?

    Lansbury fully deserves this, he's worked very hard to not only sort out his discipline, but learn how to be a leader.

    Just a shame he chose this point in the season to do it.

    I think it helps that he's got Gardner behind him now so he's being let off the leash a bit more to do what he wants, rather than plodding around in one position.

    Yeah, I always felt Henri was very restricted in his positioning, which is why he was always involved in incidents in the middle of the pitch which resulted in yellow cards. He's got so much more freedom now, and Gardner can too get forward which was something our other midfielders are reluctant to do.

    I just wonder whether your giving Lansbury a little too much credit there. He has always had the qualities of a good leader, but for some reason hasnt always chose to step up to the plate when we were in most need. Likewise, for a player of his undoubted quality, his ill discipline & poor form were mostly born out of petulance & morosity. I think to fully deserve your accolade, he should have displayed more attritional qualities throughout the season to no avail culminating in success as a reward for his efforts. Rather than pick & chose his time to shine.

    Lansburys form and discipline have improved since Pearce departed well done to all.

    Chose, or given the freedom and instruction to do it?

    Notice now all our players are back in the referees face and a lot more vocal? I think that Pearce demanded professionalism to the point that it castrated our players.

    Some of our players wanted castrating, given some of the "performances" they put in over the last couple of months of last year and the start of this!

    Unfortunately in today's game, yes. It no doubt influences the referee, and every other team does it, so if you don't you are at an immediate disadvantage.

    Times have changed, until referees demand the respect they are afforded in rugby you are essentially the Walter Softy of the football world if you wander around silently accepting all the shit slung in your face.

    Lansbury is a quality operator. The word at the end of last season was he was too good for this league. I think whether given licence to express himself or not, he has the class to standout on the field of play. Far too often this season he has been largely anonymous. He has definitely turned a jog into a run under Freedman

    He spent most of the matches under the previous manager watching the ball sail over his head as the defenders seemed to be under instructions to play Sunday morning pub football.

    And the Championship you have mentioned previously also. Yet you are on a Championship teams football forum, telling everybody how much you hate it.

    Are you sure you wouldn't be happier doing something else?

    Lots of theories on why we seemed to over employ the long ball. One of them being the apparent lack of hunger in midfield to find space in which to receive the ball.
