The Karanka Saga - what does it say about them, us and our club?

The last couple of months have been very strange. I distinctly remember driving past The City Ground in my car listening to Colin Fray and Chippers talking about the Ipswich game and feeling very confident about how the season was panning out finally...

Transferring responsibility

I think it's safe to say the five new signings, whether decent or not, are not Martins. You can bet they are the first off the new transfer panel's approved list. Maybe I'm a bit old and unsophisticated to appreciate the modern structure of a footbal...

Patience is a virtue

It's Christmas and we sit only a few points outside the playoff places. Not a bad position really, something probably 90% of supporters would have settled for at this point before the first ball was kicked this season. Could it be better? Probably 10...

Reasons to be cheerful, 1, 2, 3!

It hasn't been the start any of us would have expected. The team was obviously going to take time to gel and preseason had gone very well, but as soon as the first ball was kicked it seemed to have come to nought. Strangely, if not inexplicably, the ...

It's not rocket science

However you paint it, it hasn't been the most inspiring start to the season and certainly not what we would have hoped for or expected. Now there's a wide divide in opinion amongst the Forest fans about where we are, where we are going and what needs...

A lot of heat but not much light?

Above all else I want Forest to be successful. I care more about how we as a club do it than who. Sure, I will always tend to support the current players and hope they're 'the ones' who are going to get it right but it's as a whole and not individual...

How would you sell Ben Brereton on eBay?

I'm probably too soft to be a football manager these days. I personally would buy into the players - their characters and hope to achieve success through a strong team ethic. Based on the same principles Cloughie employed. It proved incredibly succes...

An Immaculate Summer of Business

There have been huge changes at The City Ground in the last year. I always hoped that the shambles that marked The Fawaz Circus were somewhat exaggerated and things really weren't that bad. Only visiting the ground from time to time it was hard to kn...

Preseason - The Iron Fist in the Silk Glove

It's not much to go on it's true - only a casual game with Oldham and a more competitive run out against Bournemouth so far as evidence - but it's not only the names on the team sheet that has changed completely. Nottingham Forest of last season has ...

ABOUT US


Started by a grumpy old Forest Fan still suffering a hangover from the biggest party in football history but 100% behind The Reds once again returning to where they belong. Moved to Nottingham to follow the dream first hand and join The Red Army.
