Awful - as bad as any season I can remember for quality of football
It’s funny with football being so accessible online these days I have seen every game and I must say it has been the most boring dull football ever. I heard Hughton’s post match interview earlier and I was wincing at his tired old cliches and spin. I am literally dreading next season. I really can’t see myself going to any matches whilst he is in charge
Other than Worrall, McKenna and Mighten (and Garner on loan) i genuinely couldn’t care if I never saw the rest of them ever play for us again
Season prediction mainly correct. Said Relegation / Fighting a relegation battle. As suggested lack of firepower, movement, decisiveness, predictable formation and positioning. Automatically Forest were on the defence playing a predictable formation, week in, week out. One up front, easily man-marked. Playing the ball to the wings, again movement severely curtailed as the midfielders, double marked or fouled continuously.Lack of creativeness in the middle, no through balls. Playing too defensively, using zonal play, breaking out slow with the counter attack, no target man. Blah blah blah (can't be arsed to write anymore).
Automatic relegation next season unless complete radical change in approach, ideology and new players.
This. There are little to no redeeming features of this season.
The idea of professional football is you have people who can actually play and bewilderingly we showed no sign of that this season. Additionally we showed no signs of having learnt from previous seasons, with our own version of counterattacking football. I say our version because it looks like no other version I’ve ever seen in that it’s got no useful end product if it can even get beyond the halfway line. Add to all this, the idea of Grabban as skipper is the icing on the cake. We’ve got more problems than the Labour Party and if we don’t go to work on fixing them, we run the risk of having a season like Derby did.
Interestingly, the lockdown has generally exposed football for what it has become. I think the absence of crowds has taken the emotion out of the game that influences your perception of what you’re seeing. Having watched games not only for Forest but also some Premier League games, it’s utterly fucking boring, no matter how much Sky try and talk each game up.
Worst season ever but I put that down largely to the worst squad of players ever.
Looking at all league games Forest played since the turn of the New Year we have had 272 shots, 67 on target, 23 goals. That is a return of 1 goal every 9 shots..... Given we averaged a healthy 11 shots per game, that’s an appalling statistic.
Get rid of the journey men, say goodbye to these agents throwing us over the hill players and let’s get some young blood in for a change.
You’re right to throw that at me as I was pretty confident the start of the season. I was worshipping Knockaert also when he signed for us and now pray we don’t bring him back. Point is Forest have a bad habit of turning players into s***. See it time and time again. Square pegs in round holes malarchy. It never changes. Until we adopt a different culture at the club where we bring players here for the long term and develop them, give them something to stay for, then I’m going to eat my words again.
