Cheers, I don't tend to pay much attention to teams at the other end of the table so missed out on the conversion of Fox to hero. Not sure how he's managed it tbh.

Me neither, their defence was really poor last season so I don't know how he's changed opinions. Literally the only reason I can think of his because he has come across quite funny in club videos or something along those lines. I keep seeing this picture pop in on Twitter

@Red_Dawn able to shed any light on why Fox has gone from being hated to being loved at Forest?

Karanka seemingly likes to have energy at fullback. At Boro he had George Friend bombing it up and down.

Fox is too old to be doing that. Moving him inside and playing Osborn there makes sense.

Osborn doesn’t have great quality on the ball, IMO, but he’s a workhorse and is young. He’ll be up and down that flank alot, with Lolley coming inside.

I hate Karanka’s teams and style of play. So boring. But at this level it is effective.

Only four teams kept more clean sheets than Forest in the final 1/4 of last season.

The Karanka-effect and the team’s style of play probably aides him.

Curtis Davies would be a beast in a Karanka team. Unfortunately, against Reading, he looked slow and predictable when tasked with playing out from the back. A high line wouldn’t suit him either.

Wasn't that what Robinson was signed for though? I've heard good stuff about him so it would be a surprise if he's been signed and is playing backup to someone who's not in their natural position

Jack Robinson played at CB for QPR last season. Probably signed for versatility more than anything.
