Looks like the pessimism hasn’t quite managed to reach the whole of the Nottingham Forest fan base just yet.
After the frustrating afternoon that was the game against Cardiff, in which Forest had 32 shots in total with only two of them being on target and 69% of the possession and yet couldn’t find the back of the net, forward Joe Lolley took to social media to express his anger at how things had gone. Although having not found the back of the net since the start of October away at Blackburn Rovers, I think there needs to be a little bit of that anger pointed at himself.
However fans weren’t in the mood to start putting the blame on anyone’s shoulders, in fact they just seemed to brush off the result as ‘one of those days’ when things don’t fall right for you. And given the way the season has started for the club, with the club sitting inside the playoff spots going into December, I think you can have the odd ‘blip’ every now and again.
On to the next one Joe – its a long season and we'll have days like this one. Form will come and go but class is perm and you are class!👍

To be fair though mate, there are times this season, when we have got away with daylight robbery

Sad and disappointed for you guys and us all! One of these typically Championship games where everything go against you and you as a team lack that little extra to succeed… We wil go again, COYR! 👍🏻💪🏻👏🏻⚽️🔴⚪️

One of those games unfortunately, not sure where the ref got his watch from but the amount of extra time was a joke should have been around 8 minutes for the Cardiff time wasting

You played well. Just one of those days. I’ve driven home 300 miles and if you were still playing now I don’t think I would have missed a Forest goal.

It's hard to criticise #nffc as they played some great football, but time and again the final shot /cross was poor. We need to get our shooting boots on!

27 shots at goal. 1 on target. Dominance without substance. Keep going. It's hard work.👍

Was Saturday's game simply
Just 'one of those days' where things don't go right
An example of a much bigger problem
Just so long as those blips don’t become too regular.
