All going wrong


Recommended Posts

Strange weekend for the local teams.

Magpies hammered 4-1 at home by Woking Just in a play off position. Crowds in the 5-6,000 more than the Stags are getting.

Stags beaten at home again 1-0 by Barrow now hovering in the relegation zone. What has gone wrong?

Forest slowly climbing away from danger with two solid away wins and scored goals. Lets hope it continues!

Forest in 2nd division......early 50s   Run by a commitee.. Reserves in Midland league.. Trent end 1/6 Players going to Ground on the Bus... Had to take a job in Summer

Football is/was the beautiful game..........nobody loved the game more than me.......played till i was nearly 40....loved Forest and County...........however money took over alot of years ago now....

Can't argue too much with that one Ben, I must have seen Wally Ardron play when I was about four or five years old but can't actually remember it. Obviously that is a team drawn over a few era's.

Oz,

Yep it looks like Steve Cooper has got the players on side and they're performing to their potentialat at last. I think Chris Hughton was happy to take the payoff at the end. Hard to work out why it went wrong for him. His track record was quite good but it soon went downhill for him.

Nigel Clough's good start has quickly fallen apart. Again his track record is good but he can't seem to make it happen with the Stags currently. I fear his public criticism of some of his players hasn't worked. Bit too early to talk about relegation but if they're still stuck at the bottom by Christmas they may be joining Notts in non league.

Notts seem to have slipped back after a very good start. Like Mansfield they've had a few unfortunate injuries of late so I hope they come good again. I rate the management team but the National League is notoriously hard to get out of. Interestingly Neal Ardley is doing a good job at Solihull.

I thought Lincoln might struggle this season but they seem to have settled and may yet make the playoffs.

It really does make me wonder how the essentially same team can completely turn things round in such a short time. Whatever Cooper is doing we can only hope that he keeps doing it. It would be good to have a season without relegation fears and some hope of a play off spot.

We are so used to Forest giving away last minute goals .

What a great weekend for Nottinghamshire football.

It really is starting to go right for the reds, a 4-1 away win at Swansea now leaves them only four points from a play off place. It makes a change from struggling at the wrong end of the table. C'mon you Reds

County with a 4-1 win over Southend sees them further consolidate their play off position. Their next league game is away at top of the table Chesterfield. I hope it is a good game with no trouble from the fans. It will certainly test them and a win will help their chances of securing the automatic promotion spot. Go the Maggies

The Stags 2-1 win against Salford sees them only four points from a play off spot too, who would have thought it after their start to the season. Well done the Stags and their manager the Son of God.

Another good result and now on the edge of the playoffs. Difficult to believe this is mostly the same side that had such an awful record under the previous manager.

 

And to make me feel old, Leeds have named a 15 year old lad called Archie Gray on their substitute list for their match today. He’s the son of Andy Gray and grandson of Frank Gray! Both of whom played for Forest as well as Leeds.

Well up to now The Red Men are losing to Huddesfield. They could do with a manger shake up.

About 4:00am our time. If we could get it I'd be watching. Might get some coverage on BBC 5 live on the radio otherwise I'll just have to settle for looking at the score when I wake up.

Apparently no replays this year just extra time then penalties. Go You Reds!

Listened to it on the radio.

A win for the Reds and a draw in the cricket what a great weekend.

Leicester at home in the 4th round should be a cracker. Do't think I'd want to be any where near the City Ground on match day

We watched the match on TV though I could hardly bear to watch the last 5 mins or so.  Forest were brilliant and what made their win even better, is that my husband, a Southerner, is an Arsenal fan!

Certainly did go wrong for Leicester and their so-called fans, one arrested for attacking Forest players on the pitch, and hopefully more arrests on the way for the morons who attacked a couple of city centre pubs full of people trying to enjoy a quiet Sunday lunch.

A good weekend for the Nottinghamshire clubs.

Forest - A good chance of making the play-offs. An automatic promotion spot looks beyond them. I hope the form in the FA Cup translates when it comes time for the play-offs and that it does not detract from the main objective. Huddersfield, who they play in the cup are a rival for promotion so that game may provide a pointer to their chances as they could well be playing them again to decide who goes up.

 

County - Currently holding a play-off spot but like Forest the automatic spot looks beyond them and they have a game in hand over most of their rivals. Still to play Chesterfield twice and they are away there and Solihull Motors in upcoming games. They do have what looks like an easier last three games which might help.

 

Stags - I think they are a chance for an automatic promotion spot with games in hand over all their rivals except Exeter. A tough away game against Tranmere coming up and are yet to play top of the table Forest Green Rovers twice one of which is the last game of the season at Field Mill. Should be interesting

For the best possible reasons I hope Forest don't get promoted this year; if they did, they'd probably do the old trick of coming back down straight away.

 

They should consolidate themselves this season, prove they can stay there, and then get promotion the following season.

Forest earned a creditable draw away against promotion rivals Sheffield United. Next is the cup against fellow promotion hopefuls Huddersfield Town. Come on you Reds a spot in the quarter finals would be great.

The stags had a good home win against promotion rivals Exeter City and are now in an automatic promotion spot with games in hand of the teams above them. Keep it up you Stags.

After their loss to Chesterfield County need to consolidate their place in the play off group and have difficult games coming up against Stockport, Solihull Moors and Chesterfield which will test them.

Last night was not such a good night for local clubs vying for a promotion/play off spot.

County were thumped 3-0 away at league leaders Stockport County

Stags lost 3-1 away to fellow promotion hopefuls Port Vale and used up a valuable game in hand for no return.

Forest play fellow play off contender QPR at the City Ground tonight, it is on a Sky channel for those that have it.
