Carrow Road was one of my haunts I used to frequent. Over Four hours on the road to watch Nottingham Forest lose. Great friendly fans, fantastic stadium but one of the places I hated to watch Nottingham Forest play. Unfortunately with this side unless there is drastic improvement this is a definite loss.
Reckon the team will go out and get the result they are after. 1-0 to Norwich. Terrible game with few chances, Norwich score after 20mins and then drop down to second gear. Forest delighted and showing signs of improvement.
Forest beating Watford 4-2 from 2014 just popped up on YouTube. That team with Darius Henderson and Simon Cox looked like Brazil compared to this bunch. Remembering what it was like to actually outscore opposition. Not even going to bother predicting the score, it’s that infuriatingly shit watching this lot.
Could be the beginning of the end for CH if the same garbage is dished up against Norwich. Patience will only stretch so far at Forest, particularly in this instance where it could reasonably be argued that Hughton has done nothing as yet that hasn't been flogged to death already with abject failure. Same defensive lineups, same personel, same midfield pairings, same defensive and keeper frailties. In a nutshell so far no one can argue against the fact he's simply taken up the batten handed to him by SL. He's bought nothing innovative in approach or selection and that new manager bounce was nothing but a feeble light breeze from his team. If we stutter in this manner until the New Year and January's window doesn't quickly improve his drudgingly familiar tactics he's gone. Not that I want him gone but it's not sustainable to be this bad, and it really really is bad right now, even for someone as experienced as Houghton. Tonight, a narrow loss, a couple of tame efforts, probably an improved performance. But no goals.
Clutching at straws here, but Norwich have only won half of their 8 home games so far, and only scored 9 goals. Maybe, just maybe, if we keep it tight at the back, play 5 defensive midfielders, we might just snatch a 0-0.
