No thread for this yet? Feeling confident goi g into this. Think Watson can do a job on Rooney or sow if he's in there. Niggle away at him get him riled up and with him wanting to prove himself to fans in his first derby we could get him sent off. Just need to keep our heads and let them do like Bristol did. I think if we stop Rooney it will go a long way to stopping them. Hope it's same line up that started Bristol. Thought da Costa did well when he came on but obviously hoping Lolley starts after he took a knock, no one is direct like Lolley in our team and he has come on with his defending too, him and cash down the right are fooking dynamite. Matty cash best right back in league, do well to keep hold of him.
Think Grabban will be right up for it. I'm going for a 3-1 win to the super duper rip roaring reds. Grabban, Silva and Lolley to score
Team news is in 2 changes.. Silva and ameobi out, da Costa and sow in. Not sure who is Gona take Silva's spot then? Which one of them will play as number 10? Would have said Lolley drops in behind grabban but then who goes on that wing?
Massive 45 minutes coming up . Got to remain defensively compact and nullify Rooney . The longer the game goes with us leading the more desperate the shaggers will become allowing us to hit them on the break . Fancy Da Costa to nick a goal ..
I don't understand how we do this to ourselves time and time again. Samba hasn't had a cross to take all day, fluffs the only high ball, scrapping around like diskheads. I just can't understand why worrall would block that player? He had no chance of closing down samba. As soon as he did it I thought fuck them chances we missed we are going to rue them. The warning signs were there. A couple of times today the ball has been bobbling around our goal 6 yards out. Fuck sake
I know we are maybe living a pipe dream but a win today would have put as 3rd at least till the end of games today. Personally a point before the game would have been a fine result, to lose it like that ( sorry to draw it like that feels like a loss) is just shameful. Forgetting the top 2 another 2 points would have really put us a step closer to the play offs at least. Now we have to cross our fingers and hope that some results go our way to ease the pain today. Silva post okay it is what it is, grabban took touch free 10 yards out balloons over, if he hits the target odds are he scores, young mighten through at end bless him big moment again though should score.
Worrall gets a rush of blood to the head and blocks someone 30 yards from samba, we give that cunt Rooney a chance to out the ball into the box and we looked desperate in dealing with it. Would have loved the ref to say Silva kept it off the line but it was clearly over.
If people are going to give lamouchi stick for not bringing Dawson on I'm not Gona jump on bandwagon. Derby aren't exactly a physical side and figgy and worrall should have been able to deal with that derby side for last 7 mins. Mighten nearly played a master stroke with his pace if he would have put that chance in. I feel sorry for sabri in honesty. Not much he can do with all these points being lost in the final 30 seconds- 1 min in the game.
Maybe we will get a 96th minute winner in the play off final lads?
Could have dented Derby’s playoff hopes and continued our chances of automatic promotion but with one moment of stupidity have cost our chance of automatics and allowed Derby to continue their unbeaten run. Life as a Forest fan is hard..... Sheff Wed and Derby now 4 points lost. This team has every right of being at the top of the table. Just have to chill the f*** out when 90mins comes up on the clock.
One word to Diakhaby - well done today. Obviously been practicing in lockdown. Looked a lot more composed on the ball.
