    Happy Worst Team in History Day

    Later than usual, but I'm calling it. Sheffield United's win puts them on 11; equal with Derby's record but with more wins. Derby keep the record automatically by nature of being the first to set it. Happy WTIHD!

    FA Cup Fourth/Fifth round draw

    It's our first time in the fourth round since we beat Arsenal in 2018. We have been in the fifth round once since 1997 (losing to L1 Sheffield United). So this is a novelty. Both 4th and 5th round are being drawn together so we get to see who we are losing to and who we could have played if we...

    Match Thread: Forest 0 Brentford whatever, sponsored by the insanity of doing the same thing and expecting a different result

    Same team as the one that threw away points in the week, but with Yates instead of Soh Let's vote on whose individual mistake will throw the game for us this time? Samba? Fig? Christie? Arter? Ameobi? Or are we going for a more exotic choice? Can anyone tell me what Cafu brings to the team...

    Next Forest Manager

    Looks like being Taksis Lemonis. I don't expect it to go well. But just while we are in that lovely twilight zone where we have Schrödinger's manager (both sacked, but not actually sacked) and the entire world of managerial possibilities is open to us... Who do you want? Rules: the name...

    So... What do we actually get? I have just looked at Mao's thread again, and it seems we *might* get the ability to see home games on follow, but not away games. For a start, that is absolutely fucking shit and not even remotely what we paid for or value for my £400. I have just been on the...

    If you are into that sort of thing. Pretty meh; it's just a red shirt really, nothing distinctive about it. Neither amazing nor horrible

    Match Thread: Boro Vs Forest, Sponsored by Silva's Appendix

    Pared down Fred because it's been a bloody busy day. Middlesbrough is spelled wrong. It should be Middlesborough. This annoys me. Their team will look something like this; But they have also been using 4-2-3-1. Fletcher may well be out. Ayala and Roberts are out. Friend might be out. They...

    Match Thread: Cardiff Vs Forest sponsored by that sinking feeling

    Grabban plays. Ameobi plays Sow doesn't. Silva back in attacking midfield with Yates wasting his time in defensive midfield. We don't win without Sow and we don't beat Cardiff ever anyway

    Match Thread: Forest Vs Cue Pee Arr sponsored by Noah's Ark

    QPR was always one of anxiety because of our record against them. While you were always confident of beating them at home because we always did, it was becoming a monkey on our back because of how remarkable the run was. A cheating piece of shit, a gullible ref and a poor bit of set piece...
