All in the space of 7 days the fans have started to doubt the wisdom from the board over the Adams appointment. To be fair doubts have been raised long before this. Middlesboro away was by all accounts another shocker to forget about very quickly. Following this no show from the players the Carrow Rd PR department went into overdrive. Players and management staff promising a performance to right the Boro wrong. Heard plenty of that blah blah blah last season thank you very much.
So with trepidation we set off from the Marsh car park in the fine city at 0900 Saturday morning. Arriving at Forest stadium at 1315. A quick walk across the Trent to Notts County FC supporters club for a couple of beers was welcomed by all. The game itself was a classic game of two halves. City mainly dominated the first half and a Johnny Howson goal was the difference at the interval. As expected Forest came at City in the second half but lack the finishing touch….until the clock ticked onto 85 mins. The next 9 mins were a blur as City gifted not one but two goals to hand the worst form team in the league 3 points. Chuffing hell how did we let that slip or words to that effect could be heard all around. “Forest not won in 10 games and along come Norwich” about sums it up.
The journey back conversation centred around Adams and his lack of experience and his naivety when it comes to tactics and substitutions. Hard to argue against after what we had just seen in Nottingham.
Fast forward to Monday morning and David McNally. Our CEO was quite rightly lambasted over the clubs mistake of sticking with Negative Chris for far too long last season. This time he didn’t hang about in trying to halt the slide and sacked Mark Robson before midday on Monday. Will there be more sackings ??? I very much doubt it. The crucial step now is to replace Mark Robson with someone who has a wealth of experience, no more newbies who have no Football League experience. The club has two weeks to find this important piece of the jigsaw. Good luck on that one…………..OTBC
