Just how many first team players have to take up residence in the treatment room before the powers that be at NFFC realise that we are in deep doo doo this season and what will it take for the hierarchy of this club to make at least one new bloody signing?
The current goings on at NFFC towers are fast becoming the stuff of comedy farce. The board are saying one thing and the manager another. The latest news from the club, states that striker Joe Garner will miss tomorrow's game with arch rivals Derby County due to a shoulder injury and that he's been carrying it for a few weeks. Earlier this week following the defeat at Ipswich, Garner was singled out as one of the players not pulling their weight and received a public rollicking from the manager.
Now.... if the player is injured, his current lack of form is understandable. But if his loss of form is down to other matters, then the manager is right to give him flak. Either way, the club and the manager are singing from totally different hymn sheets and should really sort themselves out. Either the player is injured, or he's not. The supporters deserve to know the truth.
Putting this debacle to one side for a moment and thinking of how to rectify matters, would seem the sensible thing to do. Forest have a growing injury list that is wreaking havoc on a small and deminishing squad. Adding new faces and bolstering the team would seem to be the logical answer, but the club have so far been unable to do this. The reason for the lack of activity in the transfer market according to the club, is because the quality of player needed quite simply isn't out there.
Vital Forest would like to give NFFC a helping hand, in their quest for a few decent signings. All of whom are currently available and at a respectable price. First on our list should be a keeper....and you can take yer pick from Lee Camp, or Kasper Schmeichel. We're also in need of filling positions all over the park, so anyone from Jones, Brown, Fletcher (sorry, he's signing for Plymouth as we speak), Hughes, McSheffrey, Kuqi (better get a wriggle on coz Blackpool also want him) and Evans, are just a few to be getting on with. Despite what the people at NFFC say, there are plenty of players out there to fill the void.
As we the fans keep saying, failure to make additions will result in relegation. This is not acceptable on our part and may result in our refusal to support the club next season. The club should think long and hard about that prospect, because another relegation to League 1 will see the fanbase dwindle. Maybe that's when this club will realise, that we the fans are sick and tired of being taken for mugs. The answer is simple. Sign some bloody players, for Gods' sake!
