    It is arrogant for me to even say that, but for some reason our players/managers are also arrogant about teams lower down and they seam to coast when playing such teams and more then often lose to those teams with more fight in them than us.

    Hence why we are where we are, this has to change for us to ever have a chance of competing where some of us think we should belong.
    I dont think its arrogance or complacency on our part, certainly not last year, simply the inferior teams set up in such a way we couldn't break them down.

    Also, a lot of the 'inferior' teams made their living on being big and physical set-piece threats. Which has been our Achilles heel for a long time now.

    Welcome to Nottingham Forest!

    That in a nutshell is the exact issue that has plagued our team over the past 20+ years, if we ever break that (almost guaranteed) losing too many points to teams lower down the pecking order we will eventually go up!

    I don't know if you noticed it, but I think Olympiacos were wise to our weakness defending set pieces...

    ...add to that Ipswich last season... and Barnsley from previous seasons, and Yeovil... and Burton.
    The bollox-paining inferior opposition are legion.

    He clearly expects more from the likes of Murphy, Pantilimon, Guedioura, Benalouane, Ansarifard etc. in return for what he pays them.

    Can’t say I blame him to be honest. It’s easy to wait for consistent performances from players when you aren’t the one paying them upwards of a million quid a year.

    You’re just throwing random comments into the thread, to see what Styx.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“
