    Who said replace? You've tried that one with Indian Bee already. Can't be bothered to engage with you.

    Thomas Frank

    When Frank has won something as a head coach, he can then rightly be lauded. He had his big chance at the end of the season and blew it. If he goes one better this season, we'll all be happy. But he is not immune to screw ups.

    Condition of the Pitch

    I would imagine more games than usual, lots of rain and finances that don't stretch to super drainage systems.

    Forest 1 - 3 Bees (Dalsgaard, DaSilva, Toney)

    Collecting unnecessary apostrophes? ;)

    Forest 1 - 3 Bees (Dalsgaard, DaSilva, Toney)

    Yes - the difference is it's all about a bit of luck and taking your chances. For 30 minutes of the 2nd half today it was as bad (worse?) than Derby. Yet, we couldn't take the few chances we had against Derby, but took them today after the substitutions. First half was better, but there...

    Saïd Benrahma (West Ham)

    Not bad for a bloke with a dodgy medical, eh?

    Forest (A) Predictions...

    A lot of (misplaced?) optimism through this thread in my opinion. Yes, they are rubbish. But so are Derby and Wycombe. Unless something changes from recent performances, we're unlikely to score against a team that will set up not to concede. Best hope is another 0-0, but I fear we will lose this...

    18 games in a row (tier 2)

    So, as the season progresses, a team that's already being accused of looking a bit leggy will be expected to improve and gel more effectively, by playing even more games in a tight schedule. Unless there are a load of signings in January, that dog don't hunt. People might accept boring...

    Bees 0 - 0 WRDC

    And in the real world, if you keep dropping points against crap sides and sides with ten men, you tend to get further adrift from the top as the season progresses. Factually you're right that we're near the top, but there are absolutely no signs that performances are going to turn the corner and...

    Bees 0 - 0 WRDC

    Are we looking at performances, results, or both? For the last 2 games: Performances - about 5/10. Results : 2 points gained (from playing one team who had ten men for an hour and another who are rubbish, managed by a novice). More like 4 points lost. We really haven't played anyone any good...

    Bees 0 - 0 WRDC

    No shots on target against this lot is frankly embarrassing, no matter how much some want to dress it up as a promising performance.

    Brentford 2-2 Blackburn

    I've always found the bridge to be an effective invention! (unless you count Hammersmith Bridge in modern times!)

    Brentford 2-2 Blackburn

    Crossing that road has been a nightmare and dangerous for many years. Add in thousands coming out of LR and there is going to be carnage, one way or another. Either injured pedestrians or complete gridlock. Actually, probably both.

    Wayne Rooney's Derby County (H) Predictions

    We're due a defeat and I think this may be it. 0-1.

    Thomas Frank

    I don't read twitter, but I bet almost every other club has their share of fans bemoaning managers and players. Not saying that's right, but that's how it is. I think the simple difference with Frank and previous managers is that the level of expectation is so much higher now and rightly so. TF...
