Well spotted my bad. Forest have only won the European Cup once but they have also won the equivalent to what is now called the Europa League.


You got it right first time RR, Forest have won it twice. The second time was as defending champions.


Put it down to my age :duh: Hope you are well FOYS


I'm pretty good thanks. A few health problems, but that comes with age. Hope you're well mate.

Very pleasing with the way the team dominated the game and the way the incoming defenders played well and kept a clean sheet.
Starting to like Chambers more and more lately.
Great return for Holding and a bonus that Belerin got on.
Tierney looks the part .

This match will show where both teams are and where they are going.
Good time to play them and realistically we shouldn't lose but as its us,we could quite easily get turned over.
They lack a game plan and their overall displays look disjointed.
If we can get it right defensively we could be a team to reckon with and should finish above this lot come the end of the season.

Assuming that Bellerin, Holding and Tierney are all fit to play tomorrow who should be the 4th back four player. It would be between Mustafi, Luiz, Socratis and Chambers. Mustafi I dismiss instantly, I quite like Luiz but he is not disciplined enough which leaves Socratis and Chambers. I like Chambers but I feel we need someone who is not afraid to put the boot in and will not be overawed.

Pepe has been very unmpressive
I'd have him playing in the cups

Can't wait until Tierney and Holding in the team
Xhaka should never be in the team nevermind being captain
Wenger out!!

Shaka outshines Pepe,and they were there for the taking last night.
It's a poor Utd side and we should have won.
Torriea looks a shadow of the player that first come to the club and feel the Prem is not for him.
Worry about the managers judgement on Xhaka and could cost him his job as it makes no sense to anyone why he gets picked and beggars belief he's been made captain.
Willock should start as he has the energy bite and skill to play anywhere in the midfield.
Any other time a point at old Trafford is acceptable but last night if should have been all three.
So disappointed with the draw.

Xhaka is a disgrace. He ducked under the shot that led to a goal and cost us two points. He is also the Captain and should lead by example. He must earn over £100k a week I think most people on here would head cannonballs away for that sort of money.
What was the linesman doing flagging for offside PEA was three yards on-side. The Ref did well letting the game go on until we scored, if he had blown up for offside VAR coudn`t have intervened.
Not a great game of football but the weather conditions were atrocious.

wrong team selection by the manager,
we need ceballos or ozil in the team to feed our strikers,
willock also needs to start, replacing toreira or xhaka,
thanks good our young french hero is playing on that level in midfield,
very disappointed with pepe, young saka is the deal, well played.

Great game to get fitness into the comeback players and for once actually enjoying seeing the youth come through as they are a progressing bunch.
Could be a fair contest and should be a good game for a Thursday .

Too easy so far
Liege have been pretty standard

I'm not a big Bellerin fan. I think he's good going forward but a poor defender.

Martinelli looks like a natural goal-scorer and his approach play is excellent too. £6m was daylight robbery. All the youngsters played well and it will be interesting to see if Emery plays any of them in league games.

Youngsters look really promising and Willock is growing in statue with every game he plays.
Holding very composed and if had to make a choice would pick this back four over the lot that have played so far,even with Mustafi (gulp) in it.

Ha ha RR I deserve that and apologise .
Just playing devils advocate if you had to pick either the mad Greek and liability Luiz or Dreadful Mustafi and Holding as you centre back choice.
