Got meself back to work this week after a couple of months off.
Looking after 2 schools in Halifax, it's been an eye opener to say the least.

One thing that's already apparent is the dedication of the teachers and just how tough it is for them.
Very little money about for the most basic of equipment too!

Blackman fucked in U-23s game, and so it continues...

Broken leg sadly,he's gone back to Chelsea.

Will definitely need some cover for BPF now.

Great win against Cambridge in the FA cup.
Nearly blew it though, 4 nil up to hanging on at 4-3

Got to be worth giving Blackman a run in goal before we start talking bringing another keeper in.
He was excellent for the Blunts last year and we have him on a season long loan.

BPF is alright and will get better but going through one of those spells when every error is being punished.

Dallas is no full back either.

I'll be standing at the cenotaph today.  Red poppy on show.

I understand all the arguments but I don't choose to engage in any of them.  I simply stand quietly and say thankyou and leave when the vicar starts speaking.

This.
Just setting off now with all the family.
Parade starts from the church at half ten then the service at the cenotaph after.

What's happened to BPF too?
Seems to have got into the habit of making a major fuck up every game!
His distribution lacking too,caused jitters with the defence a few times.

On cue.
We've looked pretty fucking ordinary tonight.
Goal difference taking a big step back too.

Not good.

That can't be right surely?

Bit late to the party on this.  I'm a Forest fan if you didn't know.

I don't buy the you at least deserved a draw line - I thought we defended extremely well for 80 odd minutes and a Leeds player cheated to break the deadlock.

Now don't get me wrong if one of ours did that I'd be saying fuck you to the opposition and happily take the point.

Anyhoo - from my perspective we have been mercurial this season and our defence patchy (see subsequent Burton game) so it was good to see us defending resolutely in a backs against the wall situation.

Bullshit.
30 million quid and outplayed!

Lucky to get a point!

Went to a mates 50th yesterday which started at 2pm and was supposed to finish at 6pm but we all ended up at the boozer next door watching the Leeds game and finally bailed out for a taxi at 10 ish.
Was drinking Moretti lager like it was going out of fashion as it's one of the few lagers I don't actually mind.

Got out of the taxi at our end and promptly threw up all over next doors adjoining driveway apparently!

The wife went shopping this morning and phoned me from the supermarket to inform me I better clean it up before she got back.

Few furtive looks from the neighbours as I'm swilling away chunks of puke with buckets of water and disinfectant whilst nursing the hangover from hell.

Fuck em,we move house next Friday but I really need to knock it on the head.

Dunno how Kilch  wasn'r subbed...anonymous for about 85 mins, If I was Baker I'd be tearing my goatee out. Weird how we've started conceding soft  early goals which seem to  demoralise us, especially upfront. nowehere near the the same speed of attacking from sept.  Thought Notts looked vulnerable when we were cranked up, but  didnt happen often enough. still 2nd!

Yeah I thought he had a quieter game than usual too.
Interestingly the Sunday Mirror had him down as Man of the Match!

About time we had a bit of fucking luck.
That said, a point was the very least we deserved from that.
Expected better from Forest to be honest.

Feel for Pearce, he deserves better and Dallas doesn't cut it for me really.
