    Because, if so (and I have to keep saying to myself "it's early days still") he looks like he's done a cracking job for the money we've shelved out.
    It won't be his fault that we've signed some poorer squad fillers before him.
    Some real good finds and clever work. All meet a specific criteria and none really cost very much.

    Samba Sow my current favourite, spent majority of his career in Russia & Turkey and cost us £700k. As somebody said before it looks like he's been custom build to play in the Championship.

    He's definitely one of Modesto's finds because he's from the same network that Mady Camara & Papa Cisse (two Olympiacos players he found) are from.

    What we need to do as fans, something I keep suggesting on here, is to appreciate that the manager picks the team.
    If people don't like it, they tend to give the unpopular inclusion(s), a hard time, often on here but sometimes (unforgivingly) during games.
    Watson is a case in point. There will no doubt be some ex-professional footballer on here who tries to justify their early opposition to the player(s).

    Simple really......
    Trust the manager; he sees more of the players than anyone on here does.
    Get behind ANY player wearing our colours.

    In numbers, our support is remarkable home and away. We need to make more noise getting behind the team at home. Away, we always make a noise.

    I've just watched the full match (It's on ifollow)

    Very encouraging win.

    We seem a lot more organised defensively, esp when defending set pieces.

    It's also great to see the attacking endeavour trying to getvthe ball into the box. Makes a difference from the frustrating 20 yard shots that have been s recent feature.

    Based on the radio commentary yesterday, I'd have had Sow as MOTM, but watching the game I thought Grabban's graft was immense.

    Great to feel like there's more to come too. And a squad that looks like it can handle a bit of rotation.

    Magic.

    Win in Wales? I had a small bet expecting to lose. What a performance! Too early to predict, but this is the best Forest side I've seen this century. The levels of intensity, urgency and commitment. Having witnessed great Forest sides of yesteryear, I just hope this generation of Forest fans can experience a bit of what it's like to be playing in the top division and achieving things.

    Modesto explained his views a couple of months ago.

    Right or wrong, you cannot tell he doesn’t have a plan on his mind and a specific way of doing his work.
    These pieces explain him a lot.

    This summer's buys have probably be the most successful for a long, long time. Each player acquired has an obvious role, which we can all determine, and, to a man they've all fitted straight into ant emerging system.

    Let's hope his future tweeks have a positive impact.

    Hail Modesto.

    First 15 minutes and I was expecting Fulham away all over again in terms of possesion. Happy to see it not pan out that way.

    Magic Hands was magic with his hands when required again. His feet not so, almost cost us a goal trying to be clever. Lesson learned Brice, Row Z next time.
    Yuri is the duracell bunny, doesn't stop running. Certainly confused Ayew who was obvious uncomfortable tracking back as much. Masterstroke by SL
    Dawrall have become the perfect blend of experience and youth. Praying Daws can stay fit.
    Cash run himself into the ground. Even when Jenko is back, I would play Cash ahead of him
    The Ben Watsonometer is slowly moving out of the red zone. He's undoubtably being helped by...........
    Samba Sow who is everywhere. Still don't know what he got booked for. Should have had a 2nd yellow in the second half though. My MOTM.
    Adomah had a quiet game by his standards
    Ameobi put himself around, cannot fault the effort. Subbed at right time, seems to stuggle over a full 90.
    Carvalho also isn't fully match fit but the first half showed why he's integral to this team. See's passes others don't
    Grabban was very close to being my MOTM. The best game I've seen him play for a while. Gave everything and that goal was all his doing.

    SL once again scores top marks for not just the subs, but the timing.

    Lolley. Not much attacking in this match but boy did he stick himself in the firing line when required.
    Semedo. Wasn't sure on that as it pushed Carv out wide but of course, it worked. The fresh legs in the middle were needed.
    Silva. Took Carv's position on the right and didn't look out of place.

    We are looking more and more comfortable with this counter attacking set up and it's working like a charm away from home against offensive minded teams. Will be interesting to see how we approach Barnsley who will no doubt be happy to sit back and take a point.

    Absolutely no chance of Barnsley sitting back, they don't play that way and are very offensive Their back 4 are their achilles heel and wouldn't be able to hold out. They will come and have a go.

    Three points and a clean sheet but I imagine Lamouchi will want to see an improvement in some areas.

    I always get confused with these stats.

    Possession, shots, corners etc are things we've had.

    Is the fouls count the number of free kicks we've had, or the number of free kicks we have given away?

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    Think it's Free-kicks conceded.

    Fouls is the number of Free kicks given away, so, offences the team have committed.

    A few stats of note:

    Swansea had scored in previous 16 home league matches
    Scored over 2 in 14 of them
    Didn't lose any of them

    We restricted them to 1 shot on target.

    A complete away performance. We defended well, limiting Swansea to virtually nothing and created 3/4 big chances ourselves when we had the opportunities to play.

    Both full backs were impressive, Yuri has looked the part in both League cup games but had little to do against limited opposition, yesterday he was up against Ayew who had started the season well and he gave him more problems going the other way. Cash was excellent again at RB. Worrall and Dawson kept Borja quiet and dealt with most things that came into the box.

    Watson was solid, a few nothing passes early on but he dropped in and tidied up in front of the back four. Sow was brilliant in the first half, a ball-winning machine that can play a bit and carry the ball forward. He also gets into good attacking positions but his shooting doesn't look as up to standard as the rest of his game. Carvalho caused them problems, moving into space and playing some nice passes, he looked absolutely knackered in the second half though.

    Adomah had probably his poorest game in a red shirt, he tracked back well but his touch just seemed off all game. Ameobi is a great help in away games because he holds the ball up and looks after it so well. Grabban deserved a goal, he looked sharp all game, moved their CB's around with his movement and did brilliantly to assist the goal. Semedo didn't do too much and I think the finish was a bit of a mis-hit but he deserved a bit of luck having sprinted nearly the length of the pitch to give Grabban someone to pick out.

    I'll be honest, thought they were more than ordinary. Bit feeble.

    But my belief is, it's down to us

    I agree with that. It was a very good performance but they were nothing great. Definitely the Fulham result was a better one - they'll be in the mix at the end of the season for sure, whereas I'm not sure the same is true of Swansea.

    The word on the street is that Swansea have been getting away with it so far this season. The thing is, in seasons past, they'd have gotten away with it against us.

    Concerned about getting outplayed by Leeds, Nobend and Charlton for large periods but the way we schooled Swansea makes me think we are moving up a gear.

    Concerned that a key injury could derail us too but we seem to have cover in most areas apart from centre forward.

    Big game on Saturday for the lads to back up a fine away win. Could be a proper momentum builder

    Anyway, so far so good for me and I said huge periods which made me smirk for some childish reason

    Managers decided giving them any sort of time on the ball would be a mistake, pressing was relentless, led by Sow who's a fucking workhorse with a knack of picking pockets to regain possession.

    Dont think Swansea were firing, but we definitely diluted their strengths & made enough of our own chances to deserve to nick it.

    Managerial masterclass well executed Raymondo.

    All these teams seem to have played badly against us. Must be luck.

    It only takes a second to score a goal.

    Unless we thrash an in form, full strength prem side we'll always be lucky. We can't possibly play well, just the opposition poorly.
