  1. I always use double spacing in emails or posts because it makes it easier to read.
  2. Have you heard of capital letters - which should have been applied to Johnson and City in this comment ? Call me old fashioned when it comes to grammar, but I also disagree with your opinion about LJ He is going nowhere until the end of the season and then, only (possibly) if we finish in the league well below where we ended up last season. Which we will not. We are just one point off the play-offs and have a look at the league table to compare our season so far with Barnsley. I am expecting a convincing win tomorrow.
  3. As a long standing supporter of LJ even I am beginning to have doubts. Five defeats in six games and a deep humiliation today against a very good Brentford side who were energetic, fit, organised and miles better than us. I have not yet seen the stats yet, but guess that their completed pass rate was at least 85%. Lots of them 40/50 yard diagonal cross pitch passes which were awesome. After that display, I fancy Brentford to sneak into Auto promotion ahead of West Brom. BUT, having said all that, if I were SL I would leave it until the end of the season. If we end up lower than last season then it is time for a change.
  4. If it had to be just one, I would go with Bentley. He has made so many crucial saves and his distribution and his kicking (from hand or dead ball) has been superb. But I go with RedM on this, except I would add Eliasson but, as has been said above, picking out players from this squad is unfair. They have all been great - especially during the last two games.
  5. Spot on (as usual) Robbo. This young man is special. A tribute to our scouting team to find him in France. My footy mates call him "Wonderboy" . He is one of those players who you gives you a thrill every time he gets the ball because (usually) a moment of brilliance is coming next. I have no doubt that he will be a PL star within the next 2 - 3 years - hopefully with us. BUT let us not just focus on one player. All our players were brilliant today and (I was not there) but listening to the RB commentary, Gary Owers said our second goal was his goal of the season. Can't wait to see the highlights.
  6. Did you hear the interview with LJ on RB after the game on Saturday ? He said it was very satisfying for him as Head Coach to see the players doing what they had worked on in training all week and how he thought they "had a big win coming". Does not sound like any kind of player revolt to me.
  7. Agree with all this and any speculation about him leaving is a waste of time. Why ? Because SL has backed him all the way and Steve is not the sort of guy to just walk away from what he believes. Steve might change his mind if we get relegated, but there is little chance of that happening this season to the longest serving manager in the Championship. Why anyone would question his role as Head Coach is a mystery to me.
  8. Financially we are in a very good place. Thanks to SL. How lucky are we to have him as majority owner.
  9. Even after the dreadful performance at Luton, I doubt whether many of our fans are still in the LJ Out club now. He has always struck me as a decent, honest bloke and this story backs that up. I sincerely believe that the combination of SL (another honest chap) and LJ is great for our club. We are very fortunate not to have a club run by some of the slimeballs who work in fottball.
  10. Our regular pre-match pub and very "away fans friendly" - except Cardiff. Forest fans welcome.
  11. A very moving story indeed and credit to all his friends for helping him out. Any chance of a link to his JustGiving page please ? I bet I am not alone among City fans who will chip in something - if they can.
  12. Now I understand. It's like auto correct in text which drives me mad when it corrects something I have actually spelt correctly. Anyway, I finally got round it by spacing the letters of what I am sure is the correct pronunciation of this player's name. Surprised that MA got that wrong in what was otherwise an excellent (and very informative) interview on BCTV.
  13. Nagy Trying one last time N A D G E
  14. What is going on. Twice I have written Nagy and it has been changed to Nagy !
