Despite all the recent activity in the transfer market, the return to full fitness of João Carvalho will seem like a brand-new signing. Nottingham Forest’s record acquisition is slowly but surely working his way back into contention for a place in the starting eleven. The 22-year-old Portuguese suffered an ankle injury set back in … Continue reading A Fully Fit Carvalho Will Seem Like We’ve Signed a New Player
Nottingham Forest produced three excellent results within just six days, proof that the club finally has strength in depth. Despite being outplayed for long spells at Charlton Athletic, who in my opinion, manufactured the best passing football of the season so far, Forest dug out an invaluable point at the Valley. Similarly, to the game … Continue reading Strength in Depth

Sabri Lamouchi unleashed a trio of substitutes at Elland Road as Forest came back from the dead to earn a draw against Leeds United last Saturday. It’s fair to say that Nottingham forest rode their luck on several occasions but emerged with what could be an invaluable point come season’s end.

Despite being under a bit of criticism following a poor run or results of late, the Nottingham Forest manager rallied the troops and defeated one of the Championship’s best sides. Before … Continue reading Warburton Rises to the Occasion
Britt Assombalonga returned to the City Ground last Saturday, but was overshadowed by his cut price replacement Daryl Murphy. The Middlesbrough striker, who cost a whopping 15 million pounds, fluffed his lines on his big day out. In stark contrast, Forest’s veteran Irishman did exactly what he’s been recruited to do, graft and score. As … Continue reading The Prince and the Pauper
