I've always considered this league our most entertaining so it'll be nice to start a proper thread on it

Stoke at 12s for the title my first bet on it this season, hopefully throughout the season I can look to land some overs in individual games and also to get involved in games on every match day

Come on Forest!!!

Cardiff’s run proves anything is possible and the season’s not dead yet for mid table teams.
Our form in the other direction also. Couldn’t see where the next point was coming from until Tuesday. Still can’t quite believe we got Pearson in.

Pearson is a great appointment at this level. I know he did poorly at Derby but they were never going to be the right fit for him or them, a snoopy owner was always going to end badly for both parties

Please lets hope VAR never comes to the championship as that goal by Kasim Richards would have been chalked off by VAR as when the Forest player attempted to clear the ball it hit KR about his body and deflected up and hit his elbow then bounced favourably for him to hit a great goal however not a good goal for you Sont, this is the madness of VAR

Hi SS,
I'm still around....and thanks for your concern mate.  Grin

Yeah, we were lucky to get to HT without being a couple down, although in all fairness our keepers only had to make two decent saves (one was very good) for all your pressure.
We improved a lot after the break and the goal certainly knocked the stuffing out of your guys.

Dewsbury-Hall was a star for us again (but he's only on loan from Leicester until the end of the season Sad) and the new lad up front (Adebayo) looks potentially a very astute signing.
The other good thing we've discovered in the last couple of matches is that our right 'winger' (Jordan Clark) seems to be a much better right back! He has just had two excellent games in a row.

Have only missed watching one of our games so far this season (the home victory over B City) and our recent slippage has been due to often playing well and not got the points we deserve from a match or - several times - we have been clueless and atrocious!!

Congratulations on your boys recovering from their very worrying start. It was looking as though we were gonna replace you in the relegation scrap a couple of weeks ago but we both now look destined for mid-table anonimity hopefully!

Take care,
Cheers,
Mad.
