    Sky Bet reckon the bottom 6 will be-Derby,Blackpool,Peterborough,Reading,Hull and Forest(3/1 for relegation
    tonight).
    I agree,I can't look beyond these clubs to make the drop.
    I suspect(but obviously can't prove),that Murphy is identifying good players but is being prevented from closing
    the deals(either by FFP rules or a failure by the board to accept we are in serious jeopardy of falling into
    the lower division cesspit-possibly for good).

    Forest now 3rd joint favourites at 2/1 for relegation with Sky bet.
    It's starting to look a tough challenge(with or without CH),due to appalling mismanagement at the top of the
    club.
    Still,at least we can look forward to the 'El Crapico' East Midlands derby in the 3rd Division next season.

    Still think that price will shorten yet between now and December.

    If it drops to evens I'll lay it. As shit as we are we do have lots of time and another window to swing it round.

    Just got to hope none of the dolts who have put us in this mess are allowed to continue digging that hole deeper.

    Yes,it's starting to look that way.
    Unless we can pick up 4/5 points by next Saturday night,then I think we need to check our maps for Accrington,
    Cambridge and Morecambe next season,
    As an aside,if CH does leave,does anyone have any faith in this board to bring in the right manager/head coach?
    (because I haven't).

    Going to yesterday's match felt like a chore. Not enjoying it. Maybe all those new grounds next season will re-ignite my enthusiasm.

    I thought that last time we went down, but turned out that getting beaten at worse grounds by worse teams was even more depressing.

    Yes,it's particularly depressing if you get stuck down there(which is a strong possibility).

    going down again especially in the current climate where we can't even compete financially on the championship will be nothing short of a disaster. I feel it would finally be the last nail in the coffin of Forest never being able to compete again. Just look at Sunderland.

    I still remember the last time we were down there!

    I think we'd be lucky to be as good as Sunderland are currently if we go down. I'm more worried about us getting sucked into League Two.

    I think we'll struggle massively if we go down. The tighter FFP rules down there and how the club is currently run will fuck this club up massively. We absolutely must avoid relegation at all costs.

    Yes,if we get relegated I fear it could be a long stay in the lower leagues,with the resultant fall off in
    attendances due to apathy and a disillusioned fanbase(I think many supporters have finally had enough of spin
    and lack of action).
    A great shame,because a well run and successful Nottingham Forest would get tremendous backing.

    If we were to go down I'd give us about as much chance of "bouncing back" as Alan Partridge

    Needless to say, we would have the last laugh.

    And he did bounce back, he even had the book to prove it (well, until it was pulped).

    I refuse to think of relegation. We have a squad good enough to avoid it and I'm hoping the board will come to their senses before the season is too far gone.

    Well, actually, I have thought of relegation, but if I try not to think of it, perhaps it will go away.

    This thread title used to be reference to other club's performances but add a comma and it's suddenly a prediction of Forest's season.

    30/09/2021: It's only 8 points to the play-offs. Doesn't matter if we're 20th having lost three times as many games as we've won so far. I fancy us now that Hughton's gone.

    Can someone advise me when the price is right to lump on. If CH stays this is money for old rope.

    It's gone at 3/1, not worth it. Now price has sunk and chances are Hughton will get the boot soon enough and a new guy will hopefully do enough to help us avoid the drop. Time to lump on was a few games ago when it was punty and the risk/reward return was decent.

    You can still get some reasonable odds intra-games though. Cardiff were 2/1 to beat us before kick off on Saturday, and went to 9/1 at half time. I filled my boots on both of those.

    I think I have been wise not to gamble over the years because I obviously have no idea what is going on.
