I was thinking the same thing,

It has 3/4-0 written all over it.

Hope I am wrong though.

Forest aside, no one in the league has handed us a pasting yet this season. Whilst i'm not confident of a win, I hope that continues at least.

Derby aren't exactly setting the woods on fire. I think we'll get something from this match.

Cousins and Furlong out too. We're not having a lot of luck with injuries, that's for sure.

Seems a perennial problem with us. Can't anything other than an easy win for them unfortunately. The longer this away malaise continues... the harder it's going to be to break it.

Going to miss Luongo, that's for sure. Was clear on Saturday in the second half how much we missed his intuition. Manning doesn't really have that I'm afraid. RWB isn't so much of a problem. Wzsolek is a more than capable replacement.

Think we have to hope that Smithies has one of his faultless nights and maybe battle to a 0-0

I assume you expect us to win away eventually so arguably the more away games we play the closer we are to an away win.

Do we know what happened to Luongo, i hope it wasn't a case of playing someone who really needed the rest. It's also a shame Cousin's can't step in to his more natural position. Manning it is i guess. Is Borysiuk fit? I think of him as more of a holding player but he could sit and give Scowen a bit more of a license to push on as i think he's the most dynamic. (I think that would be the most logical solution).

Wzsolek's loss of form/marginalisation has really taken an important cog out of the team's engine room for me - width, competitiveness and the odd goal for starters. I hope I'm wrong, but I suspect at least part of it is Holloway's fault. Luongo will be a miss tonight for sure, while Cousins seems to be turning into the club's sick note. Hall's seemingly endless tendonitis has also hobbled us (no pun intended), while Robinson has wobbled badly in our last two games. The manager waxes lyrical about playing for the shirt, but it's nous, creativity and a the odd slice of quality that we need now.

Even though it won't get the awayday monkey off our back, after the Forest debacle, a battling draw of any kind would be a decent result. A handy 2-2 with the strikers both hitting the net would be a good night's work. If we do as we did at the City Ground, we'll be mullered, so I hope the coaching team have done their homework this time.

Exactly the same timing of Villa's equaliser, it seems. Forest scored their second just before half time, and effectively killed the game too. There seems to be a focus and concentration issue. Yet another uphill task now away from HQ, with a 'strike force' that's managed, what, three goals this season? aniwall

That's a logical assumption. Won't he be happening any time soon mind you. 2018 maybe :roll:
