    Disappointing lately.

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

    Yes, he's done little but fall over for the last 3/4 matches he's come on.

    When you look at the stats that were put up for the goals we have actually scored this season the majority have come from set pieces.

    Maybe the plan is to fall over and try and win a free kick to give us an opportunity to try to get a goal?

    If you’re not starting games it’s hard to get into a rhythm.
    I think that when he comes on as a sub he just tries too hard knowing that his time is limited. Hence the over enthusiasm, falling over etc.
    He just needs to calm down a bit and use his head.

    He reminds me of Brereton, dives often but isn't very good at it and so fools no one.

    He is in a rhythm.
    He comes on
    He runs around a bit
    The ball bounces off him
    He falls over

    So Glen Murray misses two chances Grabben and Taylor would have been absolutely panned for and plays in general like a poor tribute act of what he used to be (2 goals in 489min of football for Forest...).

    Yet we pull up a Taylor thread for looking disappointing after he has been chucked on when we are 1-0 down and take off our best creative players in Krovi and Knockaert.

    Strangely the person starting ahead of him has done little in the 70 minutes before Taylor comes on too.

    Unfortunately, that's what having to work with freebies & loans gets you.

    Which is quite astounding when you consider under a year ago we sold a 16m player.

    Again, for me it all comes back to lack of genuine quality options due to mishandling of the funds by the top brass.

    Not to mention we sold Walker for threpance too, who now has more goals than any of our squad.

    Taylor's having a bad few games, not helped by bringing him on late in games once every so often, but equally not taking his chance either.

    I'd give him the benefit of the doubt still - it wasn't that long ago he was playing well for Charlton in a side that played to his strengths.

    Happy for him to be here next season but we probably need someone ahead of him in the pecking order who offers a bit more.

    Bigger question for me is if Taylor wants to warm the bench for another year. Can't imagine he's the sort of player happy to do that.

    If he doesn't want to warm the bench, which is understandable, then let him go, because if he is our first choice striker, we're in trouble. Or league one.

    Well, actually Murray did have a chance which he should have scored with and contributed a fair amount to the link up play last night and really should have done better, but this thread is about Taylor.

    Taylor needs a run of games where he starts and plays the full 90.
    A striker cannot be match-sharp bench warming.
    And at 30 he is sat watching a 37 year old preferred over him.

    It seems HE'S (that one's for you Otis) the new scapegoat of the week. He needs a run in the side, Murray good but clearly at 37 he is finding it difficult with workload of a full season.

    Seems that a big problem we have is that most of the players who aren't in the side need a run of games to get up to speed.

    But CH will not be dropping his faves to give these other players time to get up to speed.

    Classic Catch-22.

    Personally I'd let all our current strikers go.

    Maybe he got some decent service. Maybe he was up against more inferior defenders than he would face in the Championship.

    Whatever the reason, I doubt he decided to step-up and score a couple of goals to send out "messages".

    They’re a lowly ranked team of part timers. Glad he scored a couple, but it says little in the grand scheme.

    But enough about Forest, we were talking about Antigua and Barbuda?

    „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“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    Scored 2?

    In one game?

    Get shot of him as quickly as possible. We can't have anyone doing that here.

    When does the Forest-Olympiakos transfer corridor reopen?

    I don't think there's any question that it was the latter.
