    Did you read the team they could put out? It's in the article. As I said, they have a better squad that us.

    Indeed. Even when we were absolutely borassic we still troubled the top end of this league with Smith, Saxton and Mackay. Also, the standard in this division was higher then as the top league teams had smaller squads and didn't mop up the lower league talent to sit on their bench. This is what riles me so much when I read of natural levels which are anything but.

    Yes but it's a useful barometer to measure how likely it is we'll be there when it matters - we simply haven't been under Mowbray. Fingers crossed this time will be different, it certainly feels like the most likely it's been under him, but I also wouldn't be the least bit surprised if we lost the next four games either.

    I'd argue that missing both our starting number 8s for the Forest game was quite bad, but that's splitting hairs a bit I guess. We should've played better in those games, even if a points return of 1 point was a little less than we deserved. Even so, we're not in December yet & we've played multiple games with a third-choice out of position left back, our back up keeper, our fourth choice centre half and without arguably our four first choice centre midfielders in Dack/Travis/Holtby & Rothwell. We'll all have it bad at some point this season, but so far I'd say we've had it a bit worse than most & hopefully it'll have evened out by the end of the season. Anyway, all in all I think we're slightly unfortunate not to have a few more points than we do, and I think we've definitely played well enough to not be scared of anyone in this league. In previous years we might be looking at a Brentford/Bristol City/Norwich week as damage limitation. This season I hope we're looking at it as a chance to make a statement.

    The squad has a nice balance to it, the long game recruitment is starting to look really good thanks to Gallagher and Brereton now delivering and the shape we are adopting. Armstrong firing on all cylinders. Having the likes of Dolan and Elliott along with Brereton and Gallagher all vying for 2 wide forward positions is a lovely little battle. Then you have the likes of Holtby, Rothwell, Dack, Trybull, Johnson, Travis and co options centrally. Still think we are relatively low on options at the back but Williams and Wharton are proving (when fit) to be decent options with Nyambe and Douglas great first choice full backs. Kaminski looks inspired, his presence seems to really steady and organise those in front of him. Huge credit due there, I’ll be surprised if we go up still but I think top 6 is now something we should be disappointed if we don’t achieve with what we have. I don’t think we’ll be far off either

    only need to be in the top 6 for one week and thats when season finishes just ask forest fans no use being in it for most of the season only to drop out on the last week

    Rovers v Barnsley. Sat 28 Nov 3pm

    I don't agree. Just look at the number of times between '75 and '91, when we had a team that was in the mix-in the top two at Christmas time etc- dropping away later, but still finishing in the top five in the 2nd tier. This era is completely different. Aside from all the crooks and clowns, since 2012, we haven't even had a sniff. We have not been competitive anywhere near the top of the table. We have not been at the races. It has been almost pointless. All this "found our natural level" stuff that we see on Facebook is nonsense. It merely seeks to rationalise what has been disgustingly, neglectful stewardship of this old club.

    Championship Season 2020 - 2021

    Our Christmas fixtures look very similar to last year, in that all are very winnable (and two identical teams). I just hope we go into the 3rd round FA cup match on the back of better results this year. We were on the edge of the playoffs and got two points from Wigan, Huddersfield and Birmingham. With great home and away crowds at the first two. This year we have Shef Wed, Huddersfield and Birmingham and if we go into them in contention at the top it will be a big test of whether our mentality has changed. The biggest difference this season is going into every game I believe we can win and expect points, whether it’s Norwich away or Wycombe at home. I wouldn’t have said that last year vs Leeds, Brentford, Fulham etc. Testament to the gradual turnaround from the staff and players.

    They live streamed about 5 matches yesterday on the iplayer and I presume they may do something similar today. They certainly have an FA cup programme todsay on BBC1 or 2. Their FA cup coverage is actually very good.

    We say Godspeed to Darth Vader actor David Prowse at 85. His visit to Griffin Park Primary school around 1980 as the Green Cross Code man brings back memories...an imposing figure indeed. R.I.P.

    Rovers v Barnsley. Sat 28 Nov 3pm

    We weren't especially decimated against Forest or Cardiff and those are the two results that were particularly poor. Losing away to Watford or B'mouth is not especially unlikely even with a full strength team. Injuries are just an excuse and 13 games is enough to make a judgement on how the team is going to fare. v Forest: Rovers: Kaminski, Nyambe, Lenihan (c), Ayala, Bell, Johnson, Buckley (Chapman, 68), Evans, Dolan (Gallagher, 53), Brereton (Brennan, 81), Armstrong. v Cardiff: Rovers: Kaminski, Nyambe, Ayala, Williams, Bell, Johnson (c), Holtby (Chapman, 78), Rothwell, Dolan (Buckley, 60), Brereton (Gallagher, 58), Armstrong.
  24. Yeah, I really miss Powerrr on a Tuesday and I hope they bring it back one day - even though it'd have to be a lot different considering how much the roster has changed. Pretty much all the storylines they had going would probably not be continued. I'm not sure exactly what Shockwave is meant to be, but I'll check it out anyway.

    That's what you said the quote was. Regardless, it should be easy to find, especially as you said he said it twice. Took me a minute to find that one.
