Well, I think it’s pretty obvious where the blame lies for this defeat.

Usually a defeat comes down to a number of factors. A missed opportunity here, a misplaced pass there, a goalkeeping mistake to boot. For the Forest fans though, there was only one thing to take the blame when it comes for the defeat last night, and that’s the team selection.

Forest boss Sabri Lamouchi made the rather bold choice to make a number of changes to the side that beat Leeds United on the weekend, and although it wasn’t exactly a totally weakened side, it was still a skeleton of the side that Forest fans have been used to seeing all season.

So when the final whistle blew, there was only one thing on the Forest fan’s minds, and that was to take their anger out on the Frenchman who has done so much to get the fans on his side up to this point in the season, but not enough credit to totally void himself of backlash for last night.

Is a top two spot realistic for Forest?

Yes

Yes

No

No

This risk had better have been worth it, because with a huge game against West Brom coming up on Saturday, he’s going to have to get everything right to get some of that trust back.

  • As soon as I heard the team selection,the outcome was inevitable.
    The notion that players were tired is lame in the extreme.
    This was only made worse by Lamouchi post match attempting to cover up his glaring error(which he has clearly not learnt from,Wigan away for example)by suggesting Ameobi,Grabban and Sow were all injured.
    I’d wager plenty that all three will be in the team Saturday.
