He’s starting to look a real handful and gradually scoring more goals. Hopefully the club can get him on a long term contract as he’ll be worth a few quid if this carries on.

Well done Sincs.
Summer holiday book recommendations
at 13:58 20 Jul 2023

Looking for some inspiration ahead of upcoming holidays and presumably others are in the same boat.

Don’t mind a bit of fiction or non fiction. Not so keen on business/life coaching type books.

Please share any ideas and apologies if there’s already a similar thread but couldn’t see anything.
Russian coup attempt
at 18:14 24 Jun 2023

Wagner group 60 miles outside Moscow according to reports and 25,000 strong. They’ve already taken Rostov-on-Don (Russian military HQ) and military supplies. Putin’s reported to have fled Moscow.

Not sure how this all ends but Wagner group taking control of nuclear weapons probably isn’t a good outcome for the rest of the world.

Rob Dickie

Two of the best goal line clearances I’ve seen within a matter of minutes. I thought he was immense today and deserves a shout out.

It’s been a horrible run of form for him personally and hopefully today will be a turning point in his career at the club.
Centre backs
at 17:29 25 Feb 2023

Hopefully Ainsworth will have seen enough today to realise that a centre back partnership of Dunne and Dickie will likely get us relegated. They’re too slow, making too many mistakes every game and barely communicate with one another.

It’s been the same story over the last few months and I’m surprised Critchley didn’t move to a back three with wing backs. Either that or we need JCS and / or Balogun back quickly but I wouldn’t hold my breath on either of them.

Lee Mason
at 22:59 11 Feb 2023

Watching MOTD and I see a blatantly offside goal given for Brentford vs Arsenal despite VAR having a good look at the goal. The VAR referee none other than our old mate Lee Mason who apparently forgot to draw the offside lines.

Now I’m sat here wondering if football is completely bent as we all remember Lee Mason has an affiliation to Manchester based football clubs or is it a coincidence that they always seem to benefit from his dubious decisions.

Context for anyone wondering:

Hard to see many (any?) leaders in this group. It’s the quietest and nicest QPR team that I can remember watching. I don’t think I’ve heard one of them shout all season. A team of nice young lads who you wouldn’t mind if your daughter brought home for Sunday lunch.

Unfortunately the lack of leadership and experience means that no one is taking responsibility on the pitch when the chips are down. I’d wager that it’s why we collapsed last season and regularly go on winless runs of 5/6 games at a time because there’s a lack of leadership and experience in the changing room.

This is why Beale signed Balogun but he’s now gone awol. I know this goes against the status quo but Critchley’s priority this window has to be one or two leaders who will let the other players know when the performances are unacceptable. It doesn’t need to cost a fortune. Warnock signed Derry and Hill for peanuts and they helped transform the club.

It’s a continuous problem we’ve had over the past few years and it needs to be addressed sharpish.

Could be going back to Man Utd in January. More good news!
Beale’s post match interview
at 19:38 12 Nov 2022

Probably a fair assessment overall. A disappointing week but it’s a long season and can’t get too carried away with the highs and lows over a week or two. Better to focus on the bigger picture.

Get the injured players fit again during the break, particularly Willock. And we go again in December.

I didn’t know that he’s scored two last minute goals. When was the other one?
at 22:29 28 Oct 2022

Drunken post. Could do with him back soon. Missed him last night.

Stoke game going ahead

What a performance. Didn’t stop pressing and pure class on the ball. His work rate in recent weeks should be an example to every player in the squad.

Any coincidence that both Chair and Dozzell are quickly improving under Beale.
Short memories

It’s a marathon not a sprint. I see people saying we’re going down, bang in trouble etc. Five games into a 46 game season.

Last season we were top 6 till February / March and finished mid table. Forest were bottom three till September / October and won promotion.

It’s far too early to draw conclusions. We’re a work in progress. Give Beale some time and let’s see how we’re doing in 10 games or so.
Ben Brereton Diaz
at 15:40 17 Aug 2022

To provide a bit of a benchmark for current Championship striker values, Blackburn are reported to be considering a bid of £8.5m for Diaz from Nice with Bournemouth and Everton also in the mix:

Doesn’t seem a lot for a 23 year old striker who scored 22 league goals last season with two goals to his name already this season.
at 08:10 16 Aug 2022

Put in a big performance last night against Liverpool including a lovely assist:

Before anyone says ‘he’s not our player any more’ let’s remember that we have a reported 30% sell on clause so it’s in our interest for him to have a good season. Maybe Newcastle will switch their attention to Eze if they can’t sign Maddison for £50m+

Either way it’s good to see him shining again after his injury last season.
