MY VIEW: " NOTTINGHAM FOREST THE NEARLY TEAM "

Postby Forever Blue » Wed Nov 22, 2017 8:42 am

MY VIEW/ OPINION:

FOREST THE NEARLY TEAM:


At best Forest have a chance of making the play-offs from the back door - but more likely they should definately finish in the top half.

They play a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Their 4 man defence and the 2 midfielders who sit in front of them do not usually score - but the other 4 sure can score ! Their defence is seriously poor ranking alongside the relegation clubs or those near relegation. Their attack however is exactly the opposite- ranking amongst the top clubs (similar to us).

I single out 2 players that captured my attention : (1) 20 year old Kieran Dowell who is on loan from Everton who is in my opinion a potentially Premiere League star - he is an attacking midfielder who plays behind the lone striker - so watch out for him.


(2) 34 year old lone striker Daryl Murphy. By Jove this guy is still banging them in at the rate of 1 in 2. Hats off to him as you don't think a striker at this age can still 'cut the mustard'. He may not last the full 90 minutes but we have to be respectful and watch out for him. It is my opinion that their stregths and weaknesses suit our game.


Our defence which is our strongest point should be able to handle their attack and our own attack should be able to open up their defence.



The real question is : " WILL OUR ATTACK & DEFENCE PERFORM TO THEIR USUAL STANDARDS ?" It will be a tight game which I think we can win - but I am willing to settle for a draw.



Opinions!?

Warburton s teams like to play it out from the back and when he was managing Rangers the keeper never launched it, always playing to feet. Press them high up the pitch and they’re bolloxed.

murphy is a good striker for this division, but surely the type of player Morrison prefers to defend against.

I'm with this.

I hope Gunnarson starts and reverts to his attacking midfield stance and drags Ralls up with him.

It would seem the obvious tactic although I hope we don't get overrun in midfield like we did at times vs. Brentford.

If you've got the membership or season ticket you can buy an away ticket. Sometimes I've seen people giving their fan numbers away to allow people without membership to buy a ticket
