Many are intrigued to see how Nottingham Forest are going to do this season coming after an aggressive summer of recruitment so far.
Clearly, the Reds are going for the play-offs at the very, very least in 2018/19 and it seems safe to say that the owners and Aitor Karanka are singing off the same hymn-sheet.
Pre-season is well underway now, too, and Karanka will be getting a good idea of what his side could look like come the opening fixture against Bristol City.
Their first friendly game was a resounding success, too, with them beating Lincoln Red Imps 5-0 in Marbella.
Let’s take a look at what has been said in response to the positive result from Reds fans:
Full-time: #NFFC 5-0 Lincoln Red Imps
Forest run out comfortable winners here in Marbella as the first pre-season game ends in a 5-0 triumph for Aitor Karanka's side.

A semi professional team who won their league in Gibraltar so I would have hoped for a victory… been a bit worried if not lol

Of course, you’d expect Forest to beat a side like the Red Imps but Celtic lost to them not so long ago in a Champions League qualifier first-leg so it’s still a decent result.
Bigger tests will be on the way, however…
