  1. Interesting look at Forest's goal, wasn't the other Forest player right in front of the goal keeper - certainly in his eyeline, how did that goal stand and the second Derby one did'nt?

    Two underachieving sides this season, it will be interesting to see who comes out on top.

    Tom Lawrence already up to his usual tricks and diving to try and get a penalty.

    Jason Knight is going for an oscar tonight. Amazing how he manages to move afterwards!

    Here’s my guesses for a prediction League I’m in. Apologies, it’s a screenshot of a screenshot!

    I had 15 from 10 - w4, d3, l3

    But I expected a top 6 challenge too.


    We should’ve come away from last night with a 0-0.  That will annoy Dean I suspect.

    It does seem rather fickle to be moaning with 13 points from 6 games.

    For all my “hashtag holdenball” mentions, I’ve been pretty grounded.  I see lots of room for improvement, but we probably have a couple of points more on the board than we deserve from overall performances. Even if we had 11 on the board that would be a good start.

    We will obviously see how the next 3 go...and Huddersfield look like they have a system well set already under Corboran, so 4 tough games to take us to 10.

    Perhaps you could call us the underdogs in the next 3.  We will see if that suits us.  A few of us mentioned that we might see results depend on the type of opponent.  Barnsley and Boro are physical teams, Barnsley physical in the high press, Boro, in the midfield press.

    Swansea, Bournemouth and Norwich much less physical (subject to me doing proper analysis on them).


    That's brilliant, Dave - first decent use of a dymo-tape machine I've seen!

  4. I've watched quite a few of Warnock's matches and I'm never sure how he contrives to drag the opposition team down to his level. We're far better than that and like the last match a catastrophic error allowed us to drop points.

    I don't usually go for the cheap hit at the officials but why do they allow his teams to go beyond the time wasting and falling over to break up play. He gave the goalkeeper a yellow card then immediately gives the ball back to him! Perhaps time wasting should be a free kick to the other team? As for the penalty shout we were never going to get anything.

    Sorry -  long disappointing evening!

    You may be right....personally I don’t buy it. He might’ve been cheesed off with the performances in front of him by the likes of Ryan Kent though....especially when he was better in their position and Mags could’ve played LB. 😉😉😉

    Possibly. Hopefully with age and maturity he'll become more professional?

    Jack Hunt was often exposed by who played in front of him as much as he was exploited by our opposition.  Just like Joe Bryan was in the latter stages of 17/18.

    I think Joe also began to lose interest in latter part of 17/18. I believe that following his performance against Man utd he would be fighting off demands from other teams in the January window. For the rest of the season he gave the impression that he wasn't that bothered.

    Yep, the old saying “needs a picture of the game in his head” when receiving the ball.  Against Barnsley’s press it exposed some areas to develop.  It’s only his 4th league start.  But it is a reminder not to go get too carried away (just yet).  When you’ve got the likes of Bradley Johnson snappy around you it’s a different game.  And this is exactly why Holden was saying that we tried to play from the back (via T) too often.  You’ve got to go to Martin sometimes, pi$$ off the player hard-pressing Bakinson, who dies doggies to close him down, then sees the ball go 40 yards over his head and has to run backwards.  If Bakinson can then get beyond that man, it’s us who are then on the front foot.  It’s basic stuff really!

    Almost set up Martin for an equaliser too.  Martin should’ve scored that header at the back post.

    "Dies doggies "? Is that a technical term? 

    A bit beyond me!

    I wonder what the limits of VAR are here. Clearly they checked the offside, and they have the remit to check violent conduct. However, is it the case that once VAR has confirmed it’s offside they then can’t give the Pickford decision, as in effect the ball is dead and VAR doesn’t have authority over non “in play” scenarios?

    So have the referees given over all responsibility and authority to VAR?
