    "Aitor Karanka's future, or lack of it, at Nottingham Forest looks set to be confirmed today - they have been looking at candidates to replace him since Christmas".

    AK only wanted to pull a sicky and watch This Morning and Loose Women instead all hell broke loose.

    Not easy being a football manager you know.

    Obviously you missed Boro, Villa, Leeds, west brom to name a few? Also what type of football do you expect when other teams sit in and don't even attempt to play football? Over the course of the season so far on average you cannot consider the overall football boring.

    Ridiculous comment, I suggest you actually try watching a few more games.

    I guess it's a matter of opinion, but yeah, it does make you wonder what worlds some other people inhabit.

    Missed the regular press conference time. Tails Tweeted the following though:

    Given that the Forest press conference normally starts at 2pm on a Thursday and there's been no notification of it, it doesn't seem it's happening today. But this isn't entirely unusual... it does sometimes take place on a Friday. So this isn't automatically a sign of anything

    Why shouldn't he rely on them they're quality players. You seem to have an anti-Karanka agenda.

    I think it has been slightly disappointing this season, especially at home. Karanka plays a certain way, for that to work I think he needed a settled back 4 but we have been riddled with injuries to defenders all season, as a consequence he hasn't been able to replicate what he did at Boro. Also he needed more from those Portuguese players. The wage bill will be huge with all the signings so you can sort of understand the owners getting spooked as we drifted away from the top 2 but surely the end of the season is best time to re-evaluate. Slightly disappointing but not a disaster and very retrievable in 20 games.

    Chris I know the German's have 'schadenfreude' to describe delighting in someone elses misfortune. Do they have a word for delighting in ones own uncontrolled misfortune? i.e. the feeling I'll get when Forest sack Karanka, Boro take him back and then he whips us in the playoff final...

    The guy is unbelievable. Obviously everyone is entitled to an opinion and it makes for good debate at times as long as that opinion actually has some reasoning. It does feel like Cornish deliberately makes inflammatory and negative statements without logic.

    Once you've recognised that though, even replying to him feels a little pointless.

    I could see AK making the play off final, sadly I could see us thrashing around in midtable again.

    I like his point that we're too reliant on 2 or 3 players to win ganes. I'm pretty sure that applies to every team I've ever seen.

    I got sucked in on that occasion and had to vent a little. Time to scroll past his irrelevance from now on

    Cornish wants us to be Man City. It's us who are lacking ambition. Us and Mark Warburton.

    Not a word for it, but a name for those who exhibit it. 'Kuntz'
