FOREST AWAY: Manchester United, League Cup Semi-Final, Wednesday 1st February – Fan Guide

From the warm sand of Grimsby to a winter’s night in Manchester. It seems likely our League Cup odyssey may come to a close at Old Trafford, a first leg deficit of three goals will take a herculean effort to overcome, but once again a cup competition has been a refreshing bolt-on to our league […]

FOREST AWAY: AFC Bournemouth, Saturday 21st January – Fan Guide

As I sat nursing a relatively troublesome hangover on Sunday morning, the same word kept coming to me when thinking about Saturday’s game and the last few weeks and months as a whole. Patience. The official definition is ‘The capacity to accept or tolerate delay, problems, or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious’ – An […]

FOREST AWAY: Blackpool, FA Cup 3rd Round, Saturday 7th January – Fan Guide

There has been an awful lot of miles racked up already by travelling Forest fans since the season resumed just before Christmas. Blackpool will be a fourth away match in 18 days and a third visit to the north-west in that same period. Thankfully, this one is at least taking place in daylight hours and […]

FOREST AWAY: Southampton, Wednesday 4th January – Fan Guide

Things continue to tick and collapse and annoy and excite. We still aren’t sure what we are, we still aren’t sure if we are building something that resembles progress, but it feels like we might be. We need United to be the outlier, we can’t keep going away from home and lacking the belief we […]

FOREST AWAY: Manchester United, Tuesday 27th December – Fan Guide

Every now and again I fall into the trap of forgetting, or just not being able to comprehend, that when  the return of the Premier League is mentioned, it involves us. It had definitely felt real, but the World Cup threw me off course again. Bloody hell, what a year it’s been. A first FA […]

FOREST AWAY: Blackburn, League Cup 4th Round, Wednesday 21st December – Fan Guide

Before the Premier League season slammed shut at the beginning of November, there was clear signs that we were finding our feet and bit of rhythm. We can’t know for sure but in any other season without a World Cup being dropped haphazardly into the middle of it, we might just have started to drag […]

FOREST AWAY: Arsenal, Sunday 30th October – Fan Guide

Hope! The last couple of games have done us much good, showing the defeat at Wolves was perhaps an outlier in our renewed form. We are still far from any sort of comfort, we remain bottom, but the Liverpool result was the type of occasion the club has longed for and, crucially, chalked up consecutive […]

FOREST AWAY: Brighton, Tuesday 18th October – Fan Guide

There is now undoubtedly a real sense of unease about our ability to compete in the Premier League. The defeat at Wolves felt different, not that we were miles behind them, but a bit of hopelessness set in. Wolves were pretty bad themselves but we couldn’t muster enough to overcome them. Steve Cooper said similar […]

FOREST AWAY: Wolves, Saturday 15th October – Fan Guide

Pretty tough going this Premier League lark, isn’t it? But hopefully Villa was the small steps forward we so badly needed. Just about every single possible opinion on our current situation has been offered but the current predicament, as usual, is probably somewhere firmly between the polar opposite war that blazes on Twitter. It feels […]

FOREST AWAY: Leicester City, Monday 3rd October – Fan Guide

The enforced breaks in September have left a slight feeling of unease. Losing had become uncommon but now it’s unpleasantly familiar. Not that this is a surprise but the manner of defeats before we headed into the blank weekends allowed fears to manifest and give rise to the dreaded debate of where we are going […]
