*****Official Match Thread v Nottm Forest*****

Recommended Posts

So Hugill, Dowell, Cantwell, McLean all fit or almost then?

Knew Todd was close.

Suddenly that bench looks strong.

Yes it's so great to see those names. Can't be far away now.

Easy win coming up, the most confident I’ve felt all season. 

I pray we have a strong performance tonight. Really press high and look dangerous and Teemu carries on with his form.

You’ll be very at ease by 8pm.

wouldn't it be a great gesture if City played this as the players ran out

Are they on the bench because of the home grown rule? Haven’t looked at the rules about this but nothing to stop Farke naming injured players with no intention of playing them

That would be suicidal, they all must have 20 minutes in them if needed.

What I mean is there has to be a certain number of homegrown players in the matchday squad and looking at the starting XI don’t think there’s enough, hence naming injured homegrown players on the bench

Doubt it. Forest are playing with a strong front 3 - not a lone striker - so Hughton recognises the weakness we have. It's a very attacking line up for a Hughton team, Lolley, Ameobi and Taylor all very capable players and with Knockaert on the bench to give us a difficult last 20 minutes or so. I don't see us keeping a clean sheet. Hopefully we will have enough to score more than they do, but like others I hope those on our bench have a few minutes in them.

I'm going for a 3-2 win.

So add Krul, Gibson, Byram, Quintilla, Rupp, Placheta, Hernandez and Idah to that lot, and it gets very interesting

You could be correct but they are very poor and we have far superior firepower. At least we are both brave enough to make predictions before a ball is kicked.

blimey, Hughton will have three over the halfway line

maybe one of them might even venture out of the centre circle

Senior players on the bench we can bring on during the match?! What a strange concept.

Great isn’t it, would love to see Todd come on and have an impact.

Me too, glad the whole Farke / Cantwell spat can also finally be put to bed too.

Turns out all Farke said about him being injured was true, who'd have thought it?!

Surely well past time for a really convincing performance.

Agreed. We have had a mountain of shots in certain games. It would be timely of a few were to find the net, in one game

Theyve been poor but they aren't poor players. They have a very good squad for this level.
