    and yet nothing changes when watching Bolton. Get beaten badly when due to walk a game and can pull a win out of nowhere when not given a prayer so always hope. COYWM!!!

    Fair point, well made. They never do whats expected, good or bad! That's the way of the whites!

    Let's hope the whites can get a better start to this game. If we invite forest onto us, they will oblige...especially after dougies attempt at mind games about their number 9 shirt. ..suggest that dougie gets a crash course in PR before he opens his gob again.

    I'd like to say a bolton win, but I think that they'll be too strong for us . 0-2 forest. Just a thought but I wonder where Tony Pulis will end up? Perhaps gartside will grow a brain and give him a call?
    Maybe palace would take dougie back? I for one would put to for the cab fare.
    Too many questions...time for a beer.

    Forest time wasted last season at the Reebok. We paid good money to watch a dire performance from both teams and some real bad gamesmanship.

    I hope this match will be different. I do not mind 2-0 at full time and a match in which we play 2 up front, taking the game top Forest like we should do at home.

    So DF thinks their number 9 won't have it easy..? That's what he said about Watford and both of their strikers scored...

    Most FANS time wasted at the reebok last season...or should that be wasted their time. THE PLAYERS are payed good money and can only muster a dire performance. I too hope this match will be different than that which we saw last season...I think it will be, forest will beat us. I hope I'm wrong. But on the evidence of pre and early season I fear for us.
    I don't see anyone really "playing" for us...is the lack of heart, drive and ambition confined to playing staff? No, it's part of the fabric of the club at all levels. It would take a leader like big Sam to pull the place up by its bootlaces. Tony Pulis anybody?

    Exactly! I can't wait for dougies " football psychology " DVD to be released. The dynamic and effervescent scot really is a man management motivational guru (but only if you play for the opposition)

    Yes please,. I don't see the passion from dougie that Is needed to get us motivated not only as a team but as a club.
    The locusts of financial collapse and relegation are on the horizon and coming this way. We need a leader...not a manager

    We are off to a good start Moxey not playing, it would be all over in 10 minutes if he was playing. Forest would take the chances after his mistakes last week. Feeney on sub bench big mistake it will be to late when freeman brings him on to help get out of a thumping by forest..

    Great point today but will we get enough throughout the season to keep us out the bottom three?

    It always surprises me that there is no-one at the Club with the cojones to tell these Managers of ours to stf up, stop talking utter garbage and think before they speak.

    Anyway, much better than expected today after Tuesday's first half debacle. The first half today wasn't bad at all. But when oh when are we going to get a consistent ninety minutes of effort and pressure out of these highly paid primadonnas? Full marks to McNaughton, Spearing (apart from his moment of utter insanity) Davies, Chungy and Wheater for putting in the effort worthy of their wages. Much better - onwards and hopefully upwards lads. COYWM

    A good point today in view of the last two games. With the players we have we won't play our way out of this league. We need to roll our sleeves up and get stuck in and fight our way out. Starting against boro. Come on whites,the fans work hard to pay for tickets it's time to work hard for the fans.
