If you're seven points clear at this stage and mess it up you don't deserve to go up.
I'd be very surprised if we didn't finish top six. Our fans complain a lot but the league table doesn't lie and bar two or three really, really bad performances, we haven't looked like we couldn't get a result all season.
We just have to keep going and keep believing, play as we have all season and we should have enough in the last few games. If we can take points off derby and Fulham then would be a bonus. I would hate for it to be squeaky bum time come last 2 games of season with Barnsley and stoke as they are typical forest games to lose when the pressure is on. I think other teams will do enough to take points off each other who are around the play offs. 2 more wins and I think it would be very hard to see us drop out
I think we'll get there yes. I also think, despite being the worst of the four Forest sides to have reached the play offs at this level, that this particular forest side is best equipped to succeed in them too.
We're awkward to play against, don't give too much away and have a couple of players that can hurt teams. Saying that though if we somehow shithoused our way to promotion we'd basically need a brand new side.
I just hope if we do get there lamouchi can have them mentally sound, not too carried away and not frightened, there is a great togetherness of this team not just players but manager and staff and I can only assume owners, the board, kit man, tea ladies etc. It just seems like we have that drive behind the scenes that we haven't had for a while. Can you imagine though a showing like our home performance v sheff wed in play off semi final first leg. 4-0 down by half time season over with a whimper.
We're not playing up to anything like the standard that we can . However , the mark of a successful team is one that can grind out results whilst below their best . We are certainly doing that !!. A big improvement is required if we are to take any points from the shaggers and Fulham .. It's squeaky bum time ....
Forest will make the play offs I reckon. There isn’t a team in the league we cannot beat but I think yesterday showed we will struggle to make it up in the play offs (Yet again). One too many mistakes/ not taking chances. Reckon we will have another heartache like the Sheff Utd Or Swansea play off semis.
