FOREST AWAY: Chelsea – FA Cup 3rd Round, Saturday 5th January

There’s been a lot of media over the last week over the recent management situation – don’t worry, not a single mention of it here. On to the magic of the FA Cup. When the FA cup draw was made there was an underwhelming feeling from some Reds fans (myself included) that we’d landed Chelsea […]

Sticking Plasters – One Year On

In the days before Christmas the plan was to write a piece that chartered the renaissance of NFFC throughout 2018. A few highs, plenty of stumbles but recognised progress. I was actually looking forward to it. Sadly it wasn’t to be. As the 73rd minute arrived at Carrow Road on Boxing Day the latest project […]

FOREST AWAY: Norwich, Wednesday 26th December 2018

After what seemed a lengthy wait of 2.5 weeks between the Villa away to Derby away games, Forest begin a trio of tasty away fixtures over the festive period with a testing fixture at Carrow Road. Norwich started the season slowly, but now sit an extremely healthy second; having not lost a league game since […]

Derby Away – Image Gallery

Our last two away games have both been draws but I’ve enjoyed them as much as any I can remember in recent times. Derby wasn’t the attacking feast that was offered up at Villa Park but it was an absorbing encounter all the same. What really made it was being in the away end. Some […]

FOREST AWAY: Derby County, Monday 17th December

It’s here…. The fixture we all keenly look out for when they’re released in early summer is finally upon us. Albeit two days later than originally planned given the somewhat inevitable date change to accommodate Sky Sports. We make the short journey down the A52 in full force after unsurprisingly selling out the full allocation […]

Villa Away – Image Gallery

As the referee signalled the end of the game several players dropped to the floor and a loud booming cheer erupted from 2,600 Forest fans housed in one corner of Villa Park. We had witnessed what most of us will probably describe as the greatest match we have ever seen. Winning matters but would we […]

FOREST AWAY – Aston Villa, Wednesday 28th November

After a convincing victory at Hull this is an entirely different type of test. Villa have started to become the force they should be under Dean Smith and it will be a tough task to overcome them on home soil. Still, we go there with no reason to be concerned. It’s pleasing that it sounds […]

Hull Away – Image Gallery

Something struck me about yesterday, something different. We won at Hull just over a year ago. The performance was probably better than it was this time but it was another of those pesky false dawns we have become accustomed to in recent times. It wasn’t the clinical, functional and, above all, sustained performance like what […]

FOREST AWAY – Hull, Saturday 24th November

Hull is another of those underrated away days which I always look forward to. It’s one of a few places that I can say we don’t have a dreadful record at too although last season’s FA Cup game was one of of numerous low points in 2017/18. The victory in the league there in October […]

Leeds Away – Image Gallery

We can argue for weeks about possession and other stats but was it not for a blatant intentional handball then we would be returning from Leeds with a third away win in a row. We were comfortable and Leeds, for all their dominance, were not really troubling us. The realist in me knows that there […]
