He needs carting off to the loony bin…

Sometimes a good night’s sleep can change your perspective on things, well after a not particularly good night’s sleep owing to an early start today, my perspective remains as it was last night.  The end of the tether has been reached, and with no news of resignations on the radio I went about my morning chores with all things Forest cast from my mind, which is surely the best way to be?

Until I saw a copy of today’s Evening Post, of course.  In which, not only does our esteemed manager refuse to give up on automatic promotion, he actually described last night’s game using phrases such as ‘hard earned’ (had their goal not gone in, it would apparently have been a hard earned point – only hard for poor Smithy!), and apparently we also ‘ran and chased.’

He finally admits that there is a real danger of us dropping out of the playoffs altogether, and there’s still the Leeds United points appeal factor that could easily have a bearing on this – but to bang on about almost being pleased with a ‘hard earned’ point the day after spouting off about winning all remaining eight games is laughable – he has no credibility, he has lost the fans and I think the players too.

I tried to imagine what I wanted to read from him, and to be fair – aside from “I’m going to resign” there isn’t a lot he could really say to console us, but to come out with the same old tired claptrap after every disappointing performance (apparently the two games prior to Doncaster were ‘excellent’) is getting incredibly tiresome, roll on the end of the season since seemingly that is the only time we will be rid of him.

  1. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HE REALLY HAS LOST THE PLOT BUT HE HAS GOT TO GIVE US ALL THIS SPEAL TO KEEP HIM IN A JOB THAT WONT BE FOR MUCH LONGER WE HOPE ANY WAY FED UP OF THIS SEASON FED UP OF FOREST FED UP OG DOUGHTY AND THE WHOLE CRAP BUNCH WE HERE TO STAY THAT IS THE THIRD DIVISION .IN WAR YOU TAKE UP ARMS NOT ADVERCATING WE DO THAT BUT LETS GET DOWN THE CITY GROUND AS A FORCE AND MAKE THEM HEAR OUR CALLS DEMONSTRATION IS WHAT WE NEED NO MORE WRITING NO MORE MOANS ACTION ACTION IS WHAT WE NEED

  2. I love the picture!!Pity we can’t get it blown up to life size and have them spread around the ground for the next home game.He has now lost all credibility and the players too must regard him as a joke..Resign now for the sake of Nottingham Forest !!! banners must be displayed at the next home game !!!!

  3. Kids for a quid against Cheltenham. My 2 lads will come with me as season ticket holders (for now). But we’ve just got back from a junior training session, which was much more enjoable to watch -and cheaper – than last nights shambles. As the junior team reaches the end of the season I thought it would be a nice touch if a few of the dads took the team to the Cheltenham game as a team bonding type thing. There was a moments silence, then EVERY single parent there started laughing at me.

    For those of you out there still supporting Mr Calderwood, either you’re not going to the games, or you’re VERY easily pleased. The above anecdote is symptomatic of how our club is viewed, and hardly bodes well for the future of NFFC, does it.
    Enjoy your pick of the seats next season.

  4. Sorry, they would have to pay me to watch that disgrace of team. No more will I part with my cash until this man leaves

  5. Ps, as I’m not from Notts, I don’t get to see the local paper. I assume you are having a bit of fun at our expense, nffc? Surely even CC didn’t see us run OR chase last night? Hard-earned? Yeah, my f**king wages on that shambles. And if Lewis’ shot HAD gone in, it would have been harsh on a very well organised and jee’d up Donny side who had had at least 5 good chances themselves prior to McGugans effort.
    Stop making up newspaper articles nffc!

  6. Sorry Matty, I meant to link to the article in question as it’s online too:

    Evening Post Waffle

    Read it and weep!

  7. Oh Dear, he really has lost it, hasn’t he.

  8. Can we play the reserves yet !!!!!!!!!!

  9. The picture made me smile, which I needed considering the circumstances. I’ll keep going this season, I’m a season ticket holder and I don’t want to miss it regardless of how shit we are.

    But i am still sick of the performances, the atmosphere and the knowledge that we arent going up.

    and its killing me.

  10. I haven’t gone to many games this season, and I am afraid that I am not sorry. Why would I want to spend £300 (plus the money and time on getting to the matches) or so on a season ticket that would bring me no joy?

    It is so disheartening to see that the manager has clearly failed to learn from last season. I actually like a lot of our current players (although I don’t know how many will be here next season), but they seem confused and unable to deliver, which I can only put down to the management.

    I had high hopes that CC would take last year’s mistakes on board, but it is deja vu…

  11. What’s worrying is that next season we’ll still be in this division and we’ll lose Commons and Clingan (for low fees due to contracts expiring) and it looks like Tyson too. I can’t see us easily replacing these players so we’re not likely to gain promotion next year either so thank you colin calderwood.

  12. I agree he needs to go now, question is when. If he goes now we could still miss the play-offs with a new manager. If he stays we could miss the play-offs too. If we don’t get promoted though then he’d be better going now so whoever comes in has some time to look at the suqad. Of course if he stays to get us through the play-offs and god forbid gets us promoted then next season we’ll be stuck with him I guess, at least until January :<

    Either way it’s a mess.
