    Get used to it wiz because I think there may be more messy stuff coming down the pipe. Tonight was a sad watch because I knew it was coming with the way in which we approached the game but I thought we would get the a point. Is there anyone who knows how to organize a team formation to meet every need or are we just playing with mismatched pegs?

    one of our main watering holes had a 100 or so, [ no room on shelf for more which were in the cellar usually rare ones ] most hotels have quite a choice ...
    Dalwhinnie, OS 2nd fav! ... off the westside of the A9 is at head of the Drumocter pass, A9 here has longest stretch of Dual carriageway and no speed camera [ as at january 2020! ] whilst the 150 miles of A9 from M9 to Inverness is littered with average speed ones, MAYBE 30 plus sections!!!

    I am drinking a Laphroaig Triple Wood Whisky now but it is not helping, we got mugged again and I'm sick of it.

    oh my goodness me .... listenened to 20man on my way back home.... seems like we need to get someone who actually scores?????? was it 4 goals in 7 home games!
    TIME SURELY to do the right thing ... promote a couple of up coming CF's to the starting line up, rest CM to subs bench! ... and give it a whirl ....
    I am dissapointed, was hoping for at least a draw ........... seem to remember a couple of games last season finishing like we were kitten..

    just noticed no goalscore /cf! in subs .. so what happens should we lose Martin... ?Wells ...?

    If you want to blame someone that is right at the top-SL and JL gave LJ the Crown Jewels to invest.
    Then it all went downhill under LJ and then his sidekick DH.
    NP comes in to halt the slide with a couple of freebie’s and a defender for £200k from Carlisle and one from Oxford for a fee both have done very well in my opinion plus the players he inherited from LJ.
    Last year was absolutely piss poor those players are still here.NP needs to move on more and recruit his type off players.We need to stay in the championship this year and SL will need to further invest in the team or if the rumours are true he is interested in outside investment injected into the club then maybe it is time for it to be sold if he does not want to take the next step.

    In at least 2 of the distilleries when purchasing Bottles [ about £80 -£100 .. but not me ] the expert behind the counter advised to add "a splash of water " but not a sweetened or carbonated one or tap water! do you drink it neat?

    Sorry mate, I ain't buying all of that again.....he was as much at fault in the last 2 home games as the players, poor selection, poor tactics, poor subs...in fact all round bloody dreadful.....We were boring, predictable and totally outclassed and outwitted by both Bournemouth & Forest...even Scott's goal was against the run of play and were very lucky at HT to go in 1-0 up instead of 2-0 down..
    The only good was I thought Tanner played well and when Massengo came on we looked a bit more lively...
    Apart from that, a bloody shambles..
    Pearson needs to get his act together, otherwise we could well get pulled into trouble.......Derby will be overtaking us soon!!

    NB...He say's it was a decent game and we were getting on top.........I'm not sure we were watching the same game!!!

    This is not progressing people. Forest were rock bottom a few weeks back, and yet they have almost twice as much possession as us in our own back yard...

    Unbelievable
    But is anyone surprised ?
    This isn't just down to Nige. We have been shipping goals in added time for over a decade, along with surrendering leads when at home many times over.
    2 shots on target from a home game and 34% possession, tells you all you need to know.
    I honestly think we will go on and break the national record of 21 home games without a win. There's something to be proud of.

    Laphroaig....:emoticon-0119-puke:...you don't really like eating peat do you wiz?

    I only drink that if I want to punish myself for something - is that what you're doing?.....<laugh>

    What an utter utter shambles.
    I’m ashamed.
    I hope the players are enjoying their shiny new cars because I’m sure as hell not enjoying their product.

    First half we squandered 2 unbelievably gilt edged chances before their chance and our goal. I'll be interested to see the replays later. I don't agree we should have been losing half time.
    It was plain to see their individual quality and only Kalas and possibly Atkinson of our starting outfield players would get in the Forest side. I thought Tanner played really well but in comparison with their RB, it's like comparing a decent value for money Skoda and Sparkey's X5.
    I agree the substitutions weakened City.
    We take off Wells, blowing out of his a**who played as well as I've seen him and bring on O'Dowda. I ask you. All it proves is yet again the lack of quality in the squad. Who else could come on? They got stronger as the game went on and a goal from them was inevitable. It happens when you play against better players. Our legs finally went with their pressure.
    I thought to a man every player gave their all and I'm proud of their attitude and effort.
    Bottom line is they're just not good enough to achieve anything other than survival this season.
    The problem is our lack player quality and until we're able to bring in better players will things improve.

    Same players as before, just the change of a manager for Forest......just goes to show what can be done......
    The worrying aspect for me is that both Forest & Bournemouth took complete control. The tactic NP used was set up as an away side and trying to counter on the break which IMO backfired.

    Thought we did ok, apart from the normal unable to get it over the line. I do however think we need to be more attack minded at home. We have to boss teams, not allow them to dictate play.
    We knew this season was about staying up, we are what we are, a few hone wins are badly needed though.

    For me the play from Bentley going forward is so slow-more pace from a tortoise-the whole going forward at pace is non existent
    NP has one hell of a job on his hands -WBA next ouch.
