Nottingham Forest will be looking to end their seven-game winless run when they take on fellow strugglers Sheffield Wednesday tonight.
The Reds recent form has seen them fall to 21st in the table, with goal difference the only thing keeping them out of the relegation zone, whilst they are four ahead of the Owls who sit bottom of the Championship.
Chris Hughton’s appointment hasn’t had the desired impact at the City Ground, and fans are already starting to ask questions of the former Brighton chief.
In fairness, the boss hasn’t hid away from the fact that these results aren’t good enough, and he gave an insight into how the dressing room are feeling ahead of the big game later on.
“We are frustrated, angry, disappointed, all of those things because we need to be picking up points. We need to do better and the next best opportunity to do that is tomorrow.”
Perhaps understandably, a section of the support are no longer interested in the words from the manager, instead preferring to see action on the pitch.
Here we look at some of the comments to Hughton’s message…
Don’t start Figs, don’t play at all ever Ribs, and tell Knockheart to stay on his feet. And find out what Arter wants for his retirement because he looks ready for it.

Watched a few off them leave the pitch after the Bournemouth defeat laughing and joking with the Bournemouth players. I hate to lose in any sport I play I would be kicking the advertising boards the corner flags. They didn't look angry or frustrated then.

Stop ya talking and do it on the pitch, our opponent's should be fearing us, we have lost game's before KO show far too much respect to them, time to turn tables before it is too late.

There’s no passion Chris. Stop selecting the players that make the same mistakes week in week out.

The fact that he is making excuses for the terrible players is a joke.
He should be naming amd shaming every player who is not got the passion or skill.
They turn up to collect a wage that's it.
As long as Houghton defends and backs this rubbish the more I feel its gonna get bad.

Hard to blame the manager , but hopefully he can get a tune out of these players pretty darn quick or get rid of those not playing for the badge ( which I know is easier said then done).

They were angry etc after the Norwich defeat – spent an hour in the dressing room – but were worse against Brentford!!
