FG Away

FOREST AWAY: Reading, Saturday 11th January 2020

Almost a year to the date, I sat down to write the away guide for last season’s trip to Reading, and for me, there is one very important change this season. We haven’t sacked our manager. There is a certain element of predictability as we head into the festive period; with Montanier, Warburton and Karanka all […]

FOREST AWAY: Huddersfield Town, Saturday 21st December

Rewind to boxing day 2016, stunningly ‘only’ three years ago, the travelling Reds fans were fired into early raptures as a cool finish by Hildeberto Pereira put them ahead on the Tricky Tree’s last visit to the John Smiths Stadium. Was this the day the Portuguese maverick would finally show his worth? Was Montanier’s randomly assembled squad about to […]

FOREST AWAY: Millwall, Friday 6th December

Rewind almost exactly one year (29th December 2018) and Forest visited The Den, for what would prove to be Aitor Karanka’s final away league game for the mighty Reds. A gloomy 1-0 loss, featuring no less than nine players that have not played for NFFC in the current campaign, saw the end draw ever closer […]

FOREST AWAY: QPR, Wednesday 27th November

We’ve been really unlucky with our London away games this season. Charlton was midweek, Fulham was derailed by engineering works over the August bank holiday, QPR is a Wednesday and Millwall next week has been shifted to a Friday. The one remaining London fixture at Brentford is very likely to end up as a night […]

FOREST AWAY: Bristol City, Saturday 23rd November

Ten years or so ago Forest and Bristol City developed something of a short lived but intense rivalry, fuelled by a promotion chase at the top of League One. The smashing up of the Amici wine bar on Radcliffe Road was a flashpoint although the trips to Ashton Gate around the same time were nothing […]

Forest Away: Luton Town, Saturday 2nd November

Being based in Bedford, in-laws supporting Luton and knowing a fair few hatters, this game was certainly one of the first fixtures I was looking out for (behind Derby) on fixture release day. For me, this is a home game, no early train to Nottingham, no late pick-ups from the station and no pretending to […]

Forest Away: Wigan Athletic, Sunday 20th October

What a brilliant opening quarter of the season it has been for Lamouchi’s Garibaldi’s; 10 games unbeaten, sitting second in the league, and everyone seems to truly be buying into the philosophy that monsieur Lamouchi is employing on the banks of the Trent. One very key area of improvement, and one that we have struggled with […]

FOREST AWAY: Blackburn Rovers, Tuesday 1st October

We travel to Ewood Park for yet another evening jaunt across the country – a third in eight days – but any fatigue is countered by the rather remarkable form we are experiencing. Taking the Arsenal game out of the equation we are in the rare position of having recorded three wins in a row […]

FOREST AWAY: Stoke, Friday 27th September

It could be argued that there are things to be worried about for this one.  The chance for us to go top of the league with a win, the rather differing trajectories both teams are taking right now and the fact that the last time Stoke won a home game they beat Forest in March […]

FOREST AWAY: Swansea, Saturday 14th September

After a well-earned break during the International weekend, Sabri Lamouchi’s Reds will be travelling down to Swansea on the back of a seven-game unbeaten run in all competitions, which was kept alive thanks to a hard-fought draw last time out at home to Preston North End. A lovely through ball from Carvalho left Adomah one […]
