    Default Matchday 7, Nottingham Forest v Middlesbrough - Wednesday September 15th, 1945 KO.



    So, here they go again.

    Can Forest get anything at all, against another Warnock side?

    Will this be Chris Hughton‘s last Stand?

    Will Forest even try and play some football, or just continue lumping it up into the air, in the vague direction of the International Space Station?

    Will Warnock‘s agricultural prehistoric approach to the game condemn Forest to yet another defeat?

    I have no idea, and neither does anyone else.

    Middlesbrough, of course, is famed for its industrial history and manufacturing base. It also doubled for the city of Chernobyl in the recent drama based on the nuclear reactor meltdown, although the Teeside city had to be spruced-up a bit with a few licks of paint for the post-meltdown scenes as the producers considered it a bit too gloomy.

    Connections:

    Colin Cooper represented both teams with distinction:



    Have at it!

    Loss followed by the inevitable talk that Hughton must go, only for him not to go

    Watching Forest at the moment is a bit like doing penance for some sin you have committed in the past that you can’t even remember.

    May as well for any games Hughton remains in charge for, really.

    Tough given we're still waiting for some of our new signings to save the day, but this looks Forest career defining for the manager.

    Middlesborough will pose similar problems to Cardiff, what have we learned from that game & what can we do differently? Hughton answers those questions with any kind of positive result then we move on.

    More of the same & its going to be difficult to dress up.

    Change the keeper.
    Keep the same back four.
    Cafu for Yates.

    Beyond that, fuck knows what plays out here.

    Let's pray our new manager is in charge by this game.

    0-1 defeat, followed by record numbers of people attending their Doctor on Thursday morning with neck strains.

    Boro aren't as good as Cardiff. We'll probably scrape a draw and prolong the tenure of Hughton.

    2-0, Boro bully us for 90 minutes. Hughton lives to see another day and nobody knows how.

    I assume Spence won't be able to play against his parent club, so we'll need a change at right back, which is a shame as he looked decent.

    I think we've found Glenn Hoddle's LTLF account

    Why would you drop Yates? Close to our best player on the pitch against Cardiff and you'd drop him for someone who barely heads the ball. Laughable.

    Im dropping him because at some point we need to look at the common fucking denominator mate.

    On the headers front, Yates missed two potentially key headers, one where the bloke side footed over the bar & secondly when Moore headed on to the post, he's not bulletproof in the air, far from it.

    Ultimately we need to a better balance centrally between outright defence & some sort of momentum, that brings everyone together. A more pro active player does that, so Id make a change.

    Im not sure how much clearer I can be on backing up a point of view.

    I missed going to matched like you wouldn't believe during lockdown and was so looking forward to getting back to games. Even though we were dreadful all last season, I still missed going

    That's being knocked out of me.

    It no longer feels like something to look forward to and enjoy. It's now a chore and a dread.

    I'll still be there, hoping by some miracle it's the day we see some sign that it's not all doom and gloom. I fear that is a very forlorn hope

    It's horrible to watch and throwing Warnock-ball in there as a double-bubble bonus, it's going to be torture

    Realist in me tells me this is another loss with barely a shot on target whilst 6 foot plus cloggers bully their way to a win and another weak as piss ref gets intimidated by Warnock to the point where all out assault goes unpunished but a cough in the general direction of a Boro winger results in another free kick hoisted in to the box for t'big lads

    Still, at least it gets me out of the house for a bit...

    It's not Yates fault that we sit too deep and that we play long to Taylor. He was actually more progressive than Garner yesterday. Nobody has said he's the best header around but he's far better than the rest of the team bar the centre halves. You blame him for the pattern of play but as he keeps getting picked its easy to deduce that it's what he's being told to do. So in my humble opinion I think you've diagnosed the teams problems incorrectly so would apply the wrong medicine. Totally accept that in your opinion it is all his fault.

    Your opinion is totally centred around unconditional endorsement for young players. So Im happy to disagree.

    For the record, Yates has to sit deep because thats the only place he does work of any note, why would the manager invite him forward when he has fuck all to offer there.

    I dont have Yates as the only prolem, I blame Hughton for picking him & the alot of other players for being useless/spineless.

    We're looking for solutions though & there are tangible benefits to dropping Yates.

    But this just doesn't reflect what happened yesterday. You're creating your own narrative to back up an opinion that you've set in stone.

    Same as Sunday, we all know what teams managed by Colin are like, all six foot plus tall, time wasters, tough, bend all the rules. 2-0 Boro

    Certainly a dilemma for Hughton, with Drager and Osei-Tutu also being unavailable, does he go with young Fin, who Colin will almost certainly target aerially, or the taller Richardson?
