Very odd that is Wes. I don't know where you sit, but in complete contrast, I've yet to be the subject of a ticket check before entering the Taylor Stand, ever, nor have I noticed any others for that matter - other than bags being checked.
I'm guessing that people get tickets in the Main Stand then congregate up in A Block where their mates are. Row behind me was still to a seat yesterday so it makes no bloody difference anyway!

Nuno’s first game was against Bournemouth (that was our 18th game and
we had 14 points).
At the same point last season we had 17 points (the 18th game was the win at Southampton).
BEFORE Nuno took over we had the same record as last year (14 points from 17 games),we
are now 4 points worse off after 24 games (21 against 25) with a probable points
deduction incoming.
It is what it is Cloughie! I wrongly assumed that a website dedicated to league position may have the correct info! 🤣
The points still stand, we ain't doomed yet, Nuno isn't the magic bullet and our problems run far deeper than the manager.

Agreed,Wes-the bookmakers still think we’ll stay up although personally I think it may
be a tall order.
I think we all know that the manager (SC or Nuno-both very capable men) aren’t the cause
of the current problems at Forest.

After such a miserable tonking you can bet your bottom dollar they will be a different proposition next Saturday.
I bet Luton thought they were on to 3 easy points against the blades after the Blades were so miserable at home last week.
Teams seldom put in consecutive performances that are so abysmal.
We definitely need to guard against complacency especially given that we are Nottingham Forest and guaranteed to end bad runs!!

There isn’t a single player in the Premier League that doesn’t make mistakes.

We are currently a bottom of the league team so of course, we’re far from perfect. I acknowledge that we make more mistakes than we perhaps should and I’m sure Nuno is working on that but you can’t expect any player to be perfect.
Our mistakes are basic mistakes mate.Its scarey how weve not progressed in defending crosses in 2 years.

We get out tickets checked in the stand, evert week without fail.
Yesterday, I got stopped by the same lad who does so week. "Are we really going through this daftness again, you must know who I am by now?" (We have a chat every week so this isn't me being a cnut!) He insists that he has to check so I dig my wallet out and show him my ticket, he nods OK.
"You didn't even fukcing look at it!" I got him to properly read it all, we'll see how this game develops!
There is extra security and there checking tickets in Upper Bridgeford too recently I asked the friendly guy what it was all about and he said there trying to make sure there are no away fans using home tickets I didn't say anything but I walked away thinking it's not going to say BTW I support Newcastle on it 🤣🤣

I get nicknames like Psycho etc., but I becoming mystified by some which are neither fun nor clear. Trying to disentangle them is a problem which is too much for my old brain. I just give up and dump the post.

Not a great deal to say about Saturday. Its okay keep scoring a couple but that's the 6th time We've lost 3-2 already this season.

Starting to feel like we need to get wins now, starting on Saturday.

If we could win 3-2 six times in the remaining games, we'd be safe. 🤣

We played well, and could have beat newky, 3-2 if the ref and var had not robbed us of a penalty.
We seem to be up against everything possible to put us down, we will need a miracle to stay up with the points deduction
coming our way.

The horse bashing fuckwitts are no bench though mark tbh. Pushing, kicking… cheating. Forest had to get down to their turgid shit in the second half

Had Awoniyi been awarded the pen even a 2-2 would be flattering them overall. Forest did plenty in that game

Sort out the defence, we’re better than Newcastle

League positions and games stats say otherwise.

From MC:

And in his column for the Mail, former Premier League referee Clattenburg compared Awoniyi’s non-penalty with the spot-kick won by Diogo Jota at home to Newcastle on New Year’s Day.

“Just last month, Liverpool were awarded a penalty at Anfield when Diogo Jota was judged to have been tripped by Newcastle‘s Martin Dubravka,” Clattenburg wrote.

LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND - Tuesday, January 31, 2017: Referee Mark Clattenburg during the FA Premier League match between Liverpool and Chelsea at Anfield. (Pic by David Rawcliffe/Propaganda)


“Soft though it was, the decision was awarded in real time.

“The referee that day? Anthony Taylor, who did not award Nottingham Forest a penalty when Taiwo Awoniyi was tripped by the same keeper.”

Clattenburg added: “Awoniyi had more of a case than Jota – the raised right arm of Dubravka made it impossible for him to stay on his feet – yet Forest got nothing.

“VAR Tony Harrington cannot escape blame as he did not take the chance to let his colleague correct his error.

“It is no wonder Forest fans are asking why it is one rule for the Premier League‘s biggest clubs and another for them.”

A little late, but here's a few thoughts from the Newcastle game.

Their first, a very good goal. However, we were slow getting out to challenge Trippier before he launched a beautiful ball in for Bruno to finish so well.

Elanga. Could (should) have scored one before he put away a good goal following super work from MGW.

Overall, several bits of exceptional skill from Forest. It was a good game to watch.

Their second. Defensively poor, the ball bounced in the area, which cannot be allowed to happen. it's also true that the knock down to Schar was perfect for him whereas we had four or five knock downs where the ball fell to one of their giant defenders. That's football.

Their third. Frankly a foul on Dominguez as he moved to close down Bruno after Elanga's poor pass out of defence. Great finish though and if the keeper had got to it, it would have been a sensational save.

Talking of Matz Sels, I was impressed. He tried to use the ball well, and sensibly. One or two passes in the second half were just that, passes not clearances. One set Taiwo on his way.

CHO. Impressed. He got lucky with the deflection for his goal but on his overall performance he deserved that. He is getting better game by game.

Tavares. He looks so good technically, if only he could shoot. I'm pleased that Nuno is persevering as I like the look of him.

Crowd. Good. Geordie crowd, as ever, good and no prawn sandwiches although a few spotty 16 year olds behaving badly spoilt their image a bit (every club has them, and we have plenty like that unfortunately).

Officials. Obviously their are key decisions to factor in, the Taiwo penalty and the challenge on Dominguez before their third. Otherwise, we've had worse and I do have some sympathy with the officials because every EPL team (including us) tried it on ... arguing, falling over etc. It gets on my tits every game. I'd appreciate a tougher stance from the get-go. First offence, yellow, and take it from there.

Nuno and his staff. I love the fact that we try and win games. look at the subs we made, bringing on attacking player after attacking player. Our football is getting better even if the results are not yet showing that.

stadium. Geordies like it, the usual 'proper old school' comments. Water and paper towels were available. Queues for a wee were ridiculous though. Catering I cannot make any comment about because I have avoided it for years.

Onwards and upwards.
