Robbie Findley sums up Forest’s woes
If you were to head over to Betfair right now, you’d get a price of 2.62 on Nottingham Forest being relegated from the Championship. On last night’s evidence, we’d be jumping all over that.
January 18th, 2012
It’s been a pretty forgettable season for Forest. They’re third from bottom in the league, have just seven league wins to their name in the league and last night, they were dumped out of the FA Cup by way of a 4-0 thumping at Leicester. They’re already on their third manager since June 2011 and there’s little money to bring anyone else in.
It wasn’t supposed to be like this. The script was that a former England manager, who took a plucky Dutch outfit to their first ever title, would take a Forest team that one step further than play-off heartbreak to the promised land of 5-0 thumpings at Old Trafford and tedious draws with Wigan. Instead, the thrills and spills of a Nottingham derby and Tuesday nights in Scunthorpe await.
So, the City Ground isn’t a great place to be right now, particularly if you’re Robbie Findley after he put forward his nomination for miss of the decade. Forest have the joint-worst goal difference in the Championship (and by some margin). Perhaps this is why.
