Yeah, he probably could have picked a better phrase than the one he did.
Or he could have used it at a different point in the season. Either way, he probably could have handled the whole thing a lot better.
Nottingham Forest will be looking to bounce back from their defeat to Charlton as they take on high-flying West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns, and heading into the game, Forest boss Sabri Lamouchi had some rather weird words to say about not just this game, but the rest of the season as well:
“We just need to focus on the next, keep the consistency and keep working because this is the Championship.”
The words are weird of course because consistency isn’t really a word you would associate with Lamouchi, given how often he has changed the team this season, in particular for the game against the Addicks.
So when Forest fans saw his comments about consistency, they didn’t exactly take a lot of positives out of the comments, indeed a lot of them took issue with them and told him that he needed to practice what he preached and accused him of outright hypocrisy.

Keep the consistency, are you kidding Sabri?! Leeds. Unchanged midweek. Brentford. Unchanged midweek. West Brom. Unchanged midweek. Fulham. You get the idea…..

That will only happen if you start your best 11 and make sure Yates and Walker are no where the first team.

Sounding like a hypocrite Sabri.

….and if it aint broke don't fix it!
And why when the team was crying out for some creativity did Carvalho not come off the bench? Just asking 🤔

Stop trying to be the new tinker man

If you want consistency play the same players 🤔

Yes consistency is the key. So try to be consistent with team selection and don’t swap out 50% of a winning side for no reason #crucialgames

Will Lamouchi be Forest manager next season?
Let’s see how he and the rest of the team respond today.
