All going wrong


Recommended Posts

I agree Forest need a "goal poacher" .

Watched the highlights on M.O.D. last night and surprised Surridge wasnt brought on sooner .

Worrying thing is they seem to be signing yet another midfielder and another centre back and don't seem to be addressing the goal scoring problem but got to have faith in Cooper .

Is it Cooper that is calling the shots on signings? I hope the newbies start to gel soon and score some goals otherwise it could be a difficult season.

Late Final Extra... 

County - a solid 1-0 home win against fellow promotion contenders Solihull Moors in front of 7,000 fans. (Stags average attendance is 6,500) and they have the best goal difference among the top group. Saturday sees them away against mid table Dagenham and Redbridge.

Thanks for the Late Final Extra Oz. I really should get over to Meadow Lane to add my support in person. Last time I saw the Maggies was over 20 years ago - we lost at Wolves.

It was tough, I could smack that Haaland in the gob!   Never mind, Forest were playing one of the best teams in the World, there won’t be many games as difficult as that one.

I'll add another OH DEAR! to that one Mary.

Forest manager said his players will learn from the mistakes made in their 6-0 defeat by Manchester City.

My comment is "They had bl**dy well better and quickly" If this is the result of the possible 20 new signings and mega pounds in transfer fees then something is wrong recruitment wise. I know we have to give them time to gel as a unit but if things don't change quickly it is going to be a very long season.

Despite the much vaunted midfield and defensive signings City had 75% of the possession and Forest they leaked goals at regular intervals throughout the game, including a first half hat trick from Erling Braut Haaland. Of even more concern is another game without a goal and with only one shot on target Forest now have the second worst goal difference in the EPL which may be vital if a relegation battle happens. Next Saturday's home game against fellow strugglers AFC Bournemouth looms as a must win game (AFC Bournemouth have the worst goal difference of -14 against the -9 of Forest.

It was painful to watch. The result was a foregone conclusion but the score line.....!

I was looking for signs from Forest with the new signings etc but saw none. A shock and a bit of reality against the big boys will hopefully have a positive effect. They really must score a few against Bournemouth next trip and regain a bit of confidence.

Forest - Giving away a half time 2-0 lead to lose 2-3 at home to a team that was beaten 9-0 by Liverpool a week ago is a major cause for concern. It now leaves them second from bottom 3 points above Leicester who have a game in hand and a better goal difference. A Leicester away win at Brighton, although unlikely, would see Forest at the bottom of the table. From being all over Bournemouth in the first half Forest seemed to give up after Phillip Billings 30 yard thunderbolt (a Bobby Charlton special) hit the back of the net. Steve Cooper said "It was a disapointing day" I hope he said more than that in the dressing room afterwards. I have yet to understand Forest's off season recruitment strategy. They did have a cohesive, committed  team  and when they came up against Premier league teams in the cup acquitted themselves well. Next game is away at Leeds and I would be surprised if that yielded any points.

 

County - The Maggies smashed five past Dagenham and Redbridge, including a Langstaff hat trick, in an away win that further boosted their goal difference. Next a home game against promotion hopefuls Bromley. The following planned home game against lowly Aldershot has been postponed, Covid?

 

Stags - Notch up their first away points with a solid 3-1 away win at Doncaster in front of a crowd of just short of 9,000, of which 3,000 traveled from Mansfield. Two difficult home games against Bradford and Carlisle coming up.

From his post-match comments, Cooper seems to realise that he has to be a bit more radical in his tactics, and a bit more ruthless in player selection. Are the likes of Worrall, Yates and Cook good enough for the Premiership?

 

It may take a few more games for the new players to mesh, and for him to establish tactics that suit, but I’m hopeful that they’ll start to produce results soon.

Unfortunately the tactics seem to be echoes of Houghton . Get a couple of goals then sit back and put on extra backs or midfielders , instead of increasing the firepower and keeping the opposition pinned in their own half . Why didn't he use Dennis ? 

Maybe he is too loyal to the championship players that got us up that can't quite cut it in the Prem.

Is it that or maybe the expensive signings are not as good as they thought. Does seem a bit of a replay of earlier year and anyone who does not show commitment or passion to the Garibaldi Red should be slung out regardless of cost.

Football News

County - Still unbeaten after a 2-0 win at home against lowly Aldershot Town and now in 3rd place behind Chesterfield and Wrexham. They play Dorking Wanderers away on Saturday

Stags - Disappointing scoreless home draw against mid table Carlisle United. Next up away against Gillingham

Forest - 2nd from the bottom they play 10th placed Fulham at home on Friday night. Fulham have not won away yet this season so Forest really need to win this one.

Oh dear! another example of collapso football by conceding 3 goals in 5 minutes leading to another 2-3 home defeat.

It is becoming embarrassing with all that money (millions) spent on the midfield and defenders and can only come up with results like this. Super Cooper's tenure must be looking a little wobbly. Next game is away at bottom of the table Leicester and if The Foxes win it will see Forest firmly at the bottom. After that it is at home to Aston Villa and away to Wolves, fellow cellar dwellers. They need to get at least 6 points from these three games as the games after that are against top 10 teams.

There's still some odd team selection mysteries . 

O'Brian  who had been the standout player in earlier games was on the bench . 

My son watched the match via some Saudi tv station and said as soon as O'Brian came on as a sub, there was an immediate improvement in the team performance . 

 

The only player who has scored goals in the Prem before, I.e. Dennis , only on for 5 mins in the last two games , with little chance of even getting a kick .

 

Of course we don't know what goes on in the dressing room or on the training pitches , maybe Cooper has his reasons ?
