  • Bruce is utter crap. But all our chips are down, as changing managers is suicide in terms of promotion, way to risky. Let’s pray it works out.

  • Winning ugly…but winning. i’ll take that all season long thanks. Things starting to click nicely, team looking more confident and players stepping up. I still wish that whatever happens in the dressing room at half time stopped. have no idea what it is

  • Yes a good result and it’s 3 pts, but not a good performance yet again. We should dominate games like that at home and against weak opposition but we are not. It is not possible to dominate a game without control of midfield and that, in my opinion, has b

  • To stand a chance of dominating a game, we have to start on parity. Unfortunately, with 36% possession – at home – that is NOT even bloody parity. Three points is three points, but how much longer will it be before everything comes crashing down? My qu

  • Another welcome 3 points. Not the greatest performance but it’s all about the result. Don’t be fooled by the possession stats. Forest had most of the ball in their own half passed between their defenders. Also the goal they got was lucky the type of oppor

  • Why do people always get so upset when the opposition have more possession than us. The vast majority of these teams just pass it around their own half and rarely threaten. I agree with DSK, although 442 gives us a more attacking look, it does make us loo

  • It’s a simple concept of mathematics. You always give something up if you play with two up front. Either one less in CM or one less at the back. Of course teams will often have more possession if they have an extra player in the middle. It’s what they do

  • I think, DSK & gary, that we are all saying more or less the same thing. In my opinion though
    it is not the 442 itself that makes us lightweight in the middle, it is the players that SB selects.
    Jedinak in front of the defense and Hourihane ( or may

  • Good to get the points but terrible once again, team setup all wrong and we will be hanging on individuals to make the difference. Bruce may get us into the playoffs playing ugly but I’d be scared from there. I still don’t have a good feeling about him. D

  • If we win ugly all the way back to the Premiership, fair enough! Delighted to have back to back league wins as well.

  • TBF we dominated that game without having the ball for long periods, that may sound silly but Forest only had a 10 minute spell when they were gifted a goal and we went to bits for 10 mins or so.

    Villa Park was like a library though as Forest played it

  • Lots of negative comment about Bruce again but have patience He has 1 year left on his Contract if he gets us promotion he’s gone if he doesn’t he’s still gone.

  • My God! I am glad there was only one stat around on that never to be forgotten night in Rotterdam. Stats would have shown that Bayern had most of the possession; more shots; more shots on target; more corners; more of everything, in fact except the one st
