    Still think theres a place for him off the bench as he's a player who naturally finds pockets of space a bit like Kevin Phillips did. A player like him is handy if younger one's are around him to do some of the running he does and create chances. The question is can we afford to have someone at his end of wage sat on the bench for an hour every game .

    Sturridge went to Torquay on loan for two months and we got Trollope the intention being a swap. Sturridge made the most of his loan spell and made Roy Mac think again by getting 5 goals in 5 starts and creating a load more with his pace. Bennetts had 30 plus games at the same level and got 2 goals. Sturridge was 2 years a professional at the time, Mason Bennett's been here 6 years as a professional( albeit he missed a year with injury). He may prove better this year than in the past but I can't see him getting 20 league goals per year at this level like Sturridge .

    It’s quite sad, watching Nugent. Gives his all, still has quality but he’s lost just enough of his game to see how good he was whilst realising that he isn’t good enough. Deserves to leave us on some sort of high but football’s a cruel game and I’d get rid. Edit: I couldn’t be more made up for a footballer if he proves me wrong.

    I thought it was Wilson - could be wrong thou, not criticizing Ledley cause he was fantastic he also got into some good forward positions as well.

    I’m a bloody ROBOT!!!!! It seems.

    Stupidly I'd never realized, but was at Google the other day and they said these capchas were being used to train autonomous vehicles! Which scares me as I have no idea whether or not to click on the post. And what if I see a vehicle reflected in a window? And if it's in a language I can't read, how do I always know if it's a store front?

    I felt really embarrassed for George at full-time. Fair enough he needed to do a warm-down by himself but wait until the ground’s empty.

    We need a goal machine up front? Here's one, Viðar Örn Kjartansson at M. Tel Aviv. 28 years old, 187cm tall https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viðar_Örn_Kjartansson

    Proper transition from yourself JAT. 13 words in, he's a striker, 26 words later he's a keeper. Scott Carson beware!

    Plan B needed or not?

    I see a lot of sense in having more than one way of setting up so opponents are unsure how to set up against us, and to be able to change things mid game if what we're doing isn't working. The example's been mentioned of the Playoff Final where we might have taken off a defender for a striker. While it looked tonight as if we were pretty fluid, I'd say we were 4-3-3 but we also have the personnel to take off a defender and bring on another striker and use 3-5-2 as a base. It surely makes sense to train and be comfortable with in both formations with tweaks of personnel.

    Plan B needed or not?

    We did have different options under Mac. Dawkins played certain games when there was more emphasis in keeping the ball in the final third. The rotation of Hendrick, Bryson and Hughes often to suit who we were playing, needing more physicality, guile or legs. The switch to 4-2-4 when chasing a goal. People just came out with this ridiculous plan B notion everytime we lost. In the Championship, you lose games... It’s natural. If plan A works to a sufficient degree, then you don’t need a plan B. And what do people expect? Throw a tall CB upfront and go longball for the last 10 mins - is that a plan B? If you want a team capable of playing possession football, counterattacking football and hoofball to the 6ft 5inch giants on a week-by-week basis then you need a squad of 60 players with different coaches for each - NFL style.

    Vyds, with the rest of today's forward line buzzing and ratting and rotating and looking so slick and skillful, would be an amazing prospect. Him, Lawrence, Wilson and Mount, with Josefzoon, Thomas, Bennett or even Nugent, Martin, Jerome waiting to come on, would strike terror into any Championship defence.

    People talking about Mason Bennett’s stats and how he might not deliver.....anyone remember Dean Sturridge?

    v Southampton (H) Match Thread

    Seems like an awesome performance. Makes a mockery of the NEP article looking at who will be forest’s “promotion” rivals. They said anything less than top 6 for Forest is a failure, for Lampard if he even gets Derby anywhere near the playoffs it’s success!! 😂😂😂 Its important we don’t get carried away like our tree hugging neighbours. Its only a friendly and Southampton will be a week behind us in preparation but it’s really encouraging. It seems as a minimum the football will be entertaining. And to think I wanted someone like Lambert as a steady pair of hands to cost cut. Mel needs commending with his visionary appointment of Frank and it’s provided us all hope and excitement where many felt there wasn’t going to be any.

    But it was only a couple of weeks ago it came out Marriott supposedly wants to play for Forest, or something along those lines. It's just their chairman and Barry Fry mucking clubs about

    When a player states that they want to play for said club, they normally end up playing for said club.
