Derby are serial bottlers. Every year they start strongly and inevitably fall away. They’ll finish 12th, as usual.

Cripes. What a horror weekend.

Very moving tributes at Leicester today. What an incredibly sad event.

At least you're doing better than Wigan, who've just ended a losing streak of 5 consecutive games with a draw at Swansea. Admittedly, our last victory was against Blackburn, but that's a small mercy.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

This strikes me as an intriguing appointment. What do you think, Andrew (and any other Forest fans who may be lurking)?

I'm quite happy with this. O'Neill knows the club and has numerous managerial successes to his name. I just hope the owner allows him to do what he wants. Apparently Karanka walked because he could no longer deal with the owners.

More than anything else, I want the revolving door culture at the City Ground to end.

Reading away today. They've restricted us to 1400 tickets to make room for the Reading 'ultras'. This should be a laugh. Image
