Nottingham Forest – 0
Burnley – 2
No clean sheet.
To offer some content, second goal aside, I was impressed with Lascelles’ debut. I thought Camp should have claimed the first cross, the second was poor marking from the youngster – but aside from that he looked comfortable on the ball and always tried to find something other than a HOOOOF when he had it. Plenty of endeavour but little end product from the other debutant Guedioura.
It was awful. The fans in the Upper Bridgford were in good form though. It’s sad to hear Bamford has gone but not surprising, the acquisition of Danny Higginbotham and Scott Wootton is good news given our defensive frailties – but it’s not going to help us score a goal. I’m sad to say that what little faith I had in Cotterill is diminishing by the second. I’m willing to accept that he inherited a difficult job, but we aren’t getting any better under him.
Second from bottom now, and the small matter of a trip to Derby to come. Nigel Clough must be rubbing his hands together at the prospect, whereas it’s looking like shit or bust for our manager. If things go badly at Pride Park for him I can’t see a way back for him with the bulk of the fans. Of course the situation we’re in isn’t all his fault, but he’s the man tasked with getting us out of it – and he’s failing. Badly.
