There Goes Forest's 10 Game Run as well

Recommended Posts

I was going to post a thread on it but this weekend could've been a lot worse for us.

Nottingham Forest lose 1-0 at Wigan.

Swansea draw 1-1 at Barnsley.

Preston lose 1-0 at Reading.

Now the latter 2 had a change of manager but it's a tough League!

Cardiff v Sheffield Wednesday also drew, 1-1 taking points off each other too and Stoke 2-0 v Fulham!

@The Original OTIB There is something about Wigan away yes...they're tough at home!

It's a reminder that we're not the only fans that have to experience defeat (and poor performances) this season. It happened to Leeds and Swansea prior matchday too.

Two lessons: 

1. Don't think Luton was the end of the world (the result, the place very well might be...)

2. Our lads need to be right on their game to stay at the top end all season.

Final point: we need to bounce back in Wednesday with a top notch performance.

10 game run for Forest and they barely ever register more than a couple of shots on target, which is quite unusual given their relative success.

Overperforming- like a few sides up there IMO.

Perhaps, but home form is what gives you a solid foundation. Something we need to sort out this season if we want to cement a top 6 finish.

Agreed. Ideally need 6 points from the next 2, but 4 wouldn't be totally disastrous- Charlton will be far from easy.

Neither Charlton or Wigan are the best away sides but they'll see us as vulnerable now.

I thought Charlton's away record was not bad- mkaybe not!

Wigan's definitely isn't good, so I was thinking draw or win v Charlton and must win next Sunday- though like I say 6 needed. Yeah they'll see us as vulnerable- LJ will need to come up with a good tactical plan Wednesday especially.

Charlton won a couple away in August but not since, and one of those was vs Reading which was a free 3 pts at the time!

Drew at Fulham.

Reading beat Cardiff 3-0 at home and got 7 pts from first 5...so were in the early phases.

Think it'll be tough anyway!

Equals - tough Chsmpionship!

After Sunday we’ll have played 14, 7 home, 7 away.  I know our home form hasn’t been great but we’ve only had 5 home games so far (out of 12).  Those 5 games have gained 8 points.  I’d love us to come through the next two with 6 points, that would give us w4 d2 l1 at home, and we’d be right back in it.  4 points (a win and a draw) wouldn’t be bad either.  24 or 26 from 14 gives us 78 or 84 points!

Tough question, because it is rare to dominate the vast majority of a championship match.

Good performances for me:

- QPR home

- Derby away

- Hull away

- Preston away

I did a double at the bookies,   City and Ipswich to both win away!  We became the 1st side that Luton kept a clean sheet against, and lost our 10 game unbeaten run.............and Ipswich lost for the 1st time this season in their 12th game.  I need to rethink my tactics?  Ha!

Just goes to show that if you are only a couple of percentage points off your game in this division,you will lose.

Luckily a few of the teams at the top lost, not the worst week to lose but I think 2-3 more before December will dent the chances massively. WBA and Leeds for the most part will probably hold onto 1 and 2 (unless Leeds bottle it again).

Swansea's turn tonight then. Another reminder that all the top teams suffer unexpected losses. Bouncing back is key though.

Brentford are a side I expect to be rising up now they've got their bona fide 4-3-3. We were lucky to get a point there, still think they'll be in the mix for playoffs so maybe not such a surprise.

It depends who they lose in January IMO. They were saying on Sky last night that several Premier League clubs were sniffing round Watkins and Benrahma and they were expected to get big offers for both.

You were right, nearly West Brom too, although at 0-2 down against Barnsley at home it was looking even better.

If I was Brentford- and I know their model is selling and rebuilding- but with a fairly open Championship so far this season I'd be looking to keep- depends when the contract of those expires too of course.

Agree with you though, that January will be key for them- the major sales over the last season or 2? Think they can stick with this January- their profit on transfers must be crazy, Maupay £20m was it!

Watkins contract is until 2023 I believe, Benrahma until 2022 according to Google so if needs must they can put them on the market next summer- well that's what I'd be thinking if I was at Brentford anyway.

Agreed- would if I was them look for a sale and loan back until May or if they make the playoffs, June- or whenever the accounting period/loan period ends.

Depends on which club buys of course- chances are they'd be in contention from quite early at a fair few but if one of the top sides then I could see that happening.
