Premier League and English premium.

Should have swerved it at that price though.

Fairly solid half after very nearly going behind in the first minute. Downing is impressive, turning out to be a very astute signing. 

More quality needed - Holtby and Rothwell for Gallagher and A N Other.

Think this is primed for Rothwell and Holtby on in the second half.

Get a bit of quality on to break down this defense.

Indeed. We need some life, a spark, something that could possibly even produce a shot on target.

We've shown at least something down the left, Armstrong has been bright, but that’s pretty much it. Nothing down the right with Bennett and Gallagher.

Dack comfortably the worst player on the pitch that half he looked drunk! Trav not won anything today after having a brill game at weekend.

Arma looks good until he has to do something with it, Gallagher just looks confused and can’t say I’ve noticed Graham 

A disjointed half with little positive to say.

Most managers sign players to play in a system. We sign strikers to play as wingers, and sign wingers to never play.

Would a bookie even take a bet on 0-0 HT at Ewood at this point?

The Gallagher experiment out wide simply has to stop. It’s not just silly, it’s fecking ridiculous. How someone with Mowbray’s experience thinks he does a good job out there I just don’t know. He wouldn’t know a winger if it bit him on the arse.

Dacks been out of sorts. Rothwell coming on would be a positive move for me. Hope Williams comes back out for second half was limping badly towards end

I didn’t put a bet on but I said all week it would be 0-0.

exactly the same as ever. No shots, no excitement, poor delivery, no spark, no creativity, no Rothwell . 

Getting fed up of it

Half Time view:

Poor game really, I think we’ve been the better side. Forest just looking to counter. A few half chances but we’re not very entertaining (what’s Tony’s new style of play?)

- Sam Gallagher is not a winger, a wasted shirt in the 11 and does not deserve his place

- Armstrong is getting a lot of the ball, but has no end product which halts all our creativity. He’s got in a lot of 1 on 1 situations but isn’t skinning the defender. Mowbray be screaming at him to take advantage of that  

- Dack has been poor, giving the ball away more than normal 

- Cunningham has been good, big part of the reason Armstrong is seeing so much of the ball. 

- I think Downing has been fairly solid in the middle too

- Nobody in the team can cross a ball. 

 

Rothwell for Gallagher 

I’d leave Armstrong on for a bit and just get him to beat that full back when he has no cover

Poor stuff from Rovers - totally uninspiring. Where is a goal coming from? .

I can see Forest nicking a goal circa 75th min and that will be it

Just so frustrating to watch, really struggle to see what Gallagher must do in training to look like he has any ability to play out wide. Dack has been shocking too. Whilst I don’t miss his woeful defending I think we are missing some of Mulgrews set plays!

Like others have said, Gallagher has been completely ineffectual out wide, though it would surprise me to see TM making the obvious change with Rothwell coming on. Fairly even game despite us dominating possession.  Sow has been good for Forest, Travis not been great, needs to pick up his game second half.

poor. 

Our midfield seems to be Travis/Downing. 

Gallagher disappointing. 

Forest don't seem much. 

Probably lose 0 1.

Thats the problem...rothwell and holtby from start we could have had them in 1st half but cautious Mowbray too fearful as usual

Tone never goes for the jugular.

I capitulated and got a ST late on.  Been to 2 games so far and been bored through out.  Couldn't be bothered tonight - watching on sky.  Piss poor fare.
