If he didn’t get the message after the final whistle, then perhaps the response from the fans will really drive it home.
Nottingham Forest lost to Charlton Athletic last night 1-0 at the City Ground, as Sabri Lamouchi gambled and lost by putting out a very different team from the one that beat Leeds United on the weekend. Whilst it was probably to be expected that he would rest players, given the way he’s spoken about keeping certain players fresh throughout the year, the extent to which he did certainly stunned a few fans.
And speaking after the game, the Frenchman openly admitted that it was his fault for getting the team selection wrong and messing with the momentum generated by the result against Leeds:
It was a wrong night, a bad performance, and probably my mistake. There was no rhythm, no fight and not the same spirit. The best team won tonight.”
However, fans weren’t just willing to take his comments lying down. In fact they pointed that after dropping points against Wigan Athletic and Millwall, Lamouchi should have learned his lesson and not gone down this route again.
3x the manager has done this (1 point gained).
If he doesn't learn from this there's something missing

You made 5 changes and didn’t show the opposition anything like enough respect…and It isn’t the first time this season, that’s what happened

Fair play to Sabri but the disappointing thing is that this ain’t the first time this has happened this season.

Given this is the third time this season the same mistake has happened youd think we get the message now??

Will we be able to bounce back against QPR?
Perhaps he should consider this his final warning.
