I know it's daft to judge on one game, but if I was judging on that, I'd say we've kept too many duds (Ribeiro, Yates, etc), sold one of our only good players and added half a team of duds. If that's what we've got to look forward to then it'll be mid table at best barring a miracle.
Fact is, if you've got half a team full of shit players on the pitch, you'll be a bit shit.
I don't even think I'll bother watching Forest on the TV whilst Lamouchi is there. We've just carried on from where we left off last season. It's dire, boring, negative football. 38% possession and 1 shot on target against a team that just avoided relegation last season !!! Lamouchi's P45 must be burning a hole in EM's pocket by now.
Ribeiro was wank. Again no shot against a team that just managed to survive. It really baffles me how a team can go a game without a shot on goal. We didn't create anything. It makes me wonder how we got so many points last season. I like Lamouchi but so.ething has to fucking change here. I want to see us with 6,7,8 purposeful shots on goal each game. We got 70 odd points last season with hardly making the opposing keeper do any work. Is it to much to ask to see us putting lesser teams under a bit of pressure?

Blackett - crap hoof merchant and on his arse when he needed to stand up, Bachi whatever - Moussi on a dodgy day, Ribeiro - fucking useless as usual, Samba - flapper, Da Costa - crap, Yates - runs around a lot but anything else?
Saying that, Barnsley had 11 3rd division players on the pitch and we only had five or six so we should still have done better but our lot didn't want it as much either which is what pisses me off. I'll take losing but not because you've got a shit bunch of 3rd rate show ponies with no bottle on the pitch.
We just did fuck all all day. Nothing I can't remember anything from the game, no decent link up play, no breaks, no counter attacks, no chances, no shots, no trickery, no runni g at the defence, no decent deliveries into the box, no decent tackles... Fuck all. Again I struggle to see how they come off the pitch doing none of those. Barnsley applied better pressure, Barnsley had more shots, Barnsley had more meaningful shots, Barnsley had more crosses into the box, Barnsley made our keeper work more.
I was really prepared to give lamouchi a chance to tweak things and still am, I'm not going to lose myself over one game especially in the cup but unfortunately I didn't see anything promising in that performance other than us looking like we were going to be more creative from the off with carvalho but yet again he fails to perform, didn't do anything of any note apart from one decent looking turn away from an opponent. Grabban didn't have a touch and when your playing one up top and they don't get a touch you ain't Gona get a whif of a decent shot let alone a goal. I can only hope we come out completely different next week against QPR. But that today was like watchi g 2 pub teams slog it out and one bundle it over the line, we are meant to be fighting for promotion this season, we should have been a lot better than that.
