Match thread, Forest v Luton, part of a lucky run?

Dropped 5 points, there’s no two ways about it. Woeful substitutions, which seems to be reoccurring theme.

I don’t understand this unwritten rule where if you’re losing and go for an equalizer, that you keep both holding players on the pitch who aren’t a goal threat. It wasn’t even an acceptable formation until a few years ago - be brave for Christ sake. Get Cafu off, keep Krovinovic on and give him to shirts in front of him with two strikers. Negative subs and we’ve lost all rhythm.
Game plan...as such as it is was shocking...anyone can see Cafu is the problem but he keeps him in

Total f-ing disgrace from all involved second half.

We now need some wins against the top 6 to be comfortable. We could be back in trouble before you know it.

That is probably our worst second half performance of the season in the league.

I actually think we were better in the cup game at Swansea.

Bit of a smash and grab for them in the context of the first half. They deserved it because they got a goal and we looked an absolute shambles second half. They were certainly the better team second half, but it felt like our performance dropped by a much greater percentage than theirs got better (not to take anything from them)

The subs weren't bad on paper but for whatever reason they completely destroyed the team.

We'll end up about 2-3 points clear by the end of this next set of games before hopefully pulling clear again.

We'd be almost home if we had done our jobs here. An utterly disastrous game for us

1 point from the last 2 games is embarrassing. The best we can hope for in the next 5 games is a couple of draws, we won't any of these games. Then we will be lucky if we're not more than 3-4 points above the bottom 3

Total dog shit, should have been 2 up at half time but failed to take golden opportunities, made some bizarre subs and killed us second half. Murray should be used as an impact sub he shouldn't be playing 90 minutes he hasn't got the energy levels to do it, tough games to come 1point when we should have taken 6 leaves us still in a bit of danger.

No excuse, but we looked tired.

Small margins - Garner almost scores, they go down the other end and score one of the goals Murray should have had first half. Only from further out, either a sublime touch or a fluke.

Other results haven't hurt us so it's disappointing but not the end of the world. Get Yates back in and we'll be fine.

What a disappointment. Our game ended with Garner shot and keepers save, from then on it was all Luton.
Final ball let us down again, Murray did a Grabban in the first half, non existent in the second. Taylor confidence is shot. Might as well not have him in the squad. He is not trusted so he is coming on half-hearted.
Second half all team was crap, we Samba got away with two mistakes , midfield without Krovanovic was a walk about. The flanks created nothing.
We need to get something from the next games or we are being sucked in...

Subs were pointless if you don’t utilisevthem...mighten has pace...we didn’t play him in once

ameobi is just fucking useless

and we took krov/knocks off to leave a clueless midfield

managerial fuck up and players were a disgrace

The reporter on sky said Forest had a good first half. They didn’t manage more than four consecutive passes in Luton half. Just Luton was worse. Second half was woeful. Any other profession they would have to collect cards as not fulfilling job description. Unable to pass, run, dribble, head, shoot. Even Samba couldn’t pass a ball. Two games a week is no excuse. Other teams play that and are able to run, kick, shoot. Sell the lot. Hopeless.
