Somebody needs to rethink our priorities in this window! Sure Keane would be good, although accommodating him, Ba and Obinna will be a challenge, never mind Piquionne and Cole, but this team is crying out for defenders!
Jacobsen is back today but we are still shipping goals against a Championship side. Gabbidon and Reid are not good enough and Upson is just playing out his contract and looking to avoid any injury. That leaves Tomkins as our only decent centre half and he isn't playing today. We need a big, brave, uncompromising centre back. Collins anybody? What an inspired decision it was to sell him!
For all the numbers, the midfield is also weak. Sears has looked ordinary in the first 45 minutes and Barrera is on the pitch, but you wouldn't know it! As for Kovac, well he looks just as crap against Championship players as he does against Premiership opposition. I'm amazed that Noble is playing. He looked knackered after 60 minutes against Birmingham, his boots must be feeling like lead at the moment.
2-2 sounds pretty thrilling but all the football in the first 45 has come from Forest. Our first was a lucky stabbed finish from Obinna with a Noble shot flying wide. Our second was brilliant, assuming Obinna meant it, but there was no teamwork involved.
The midfield is producing nothing and is being over run. The defence is crap. Green is looking nervous. Up front, Piquionne hasn't woken up yet. It's all very worrying given we will have to beat the likes of Forest week in week out next season.
