A nice new home for Forest, who are currently sitting in 10th. Happy days!

Definately playing well of late are Forest. 10th position represents a good start for them especially after a very tricky season last time around. This Saturday they have a real test of how far they have come when they host Newcastle who are by far the best team in the league at present. I think a draw would be a good result for them.

Definatley. Newcastle haven't won in two, but are pretty strong up front while defensivley we are still a concern. A draw would be a fantastic result. Incidently, I had picked this game as one of the Forest games I would go to, but it's on the Saturday Villa host Chelsea, which was a real bummer.

6th goal of the season, could have had a couple more in this half too. Forest have been by far the better side so far and we deserve the lead. Blackstock, as said, had a good chance off the post and another with his head later on. I thought the Harewood/Morgan battle would have been tougher, but Harewood has been given little service and consequently looks quite poor. More of the same second half.

Well that's the second fantatic win I've witnessed today! :D In fairness, Newcastle probably deserved a point as they were the better team in the second half. Problem for them is that they lack any real goalscorer. With Ameobi out injured, they have very little to offer in the final third with Carroll quite a poor player in my opinion who will never get you goals; Marlon Harewood, who, for all his hard work is not good enough (although for Championship level may be); and the other young kid that came on not being able to make an impact either. We're in good form now with a four game winning sequence and now sitting just out side the play-offs. Quite the opposite from our performences in the opening few games.

I dont think the goal that was called off was really off sides but that was the story of last year also so I dont think I should dwell on it.

It was tough on Newcastle, but by the letter of the law it was offside as the part of his body he scored with was behind the defender when the ball was kicked. But still, It don't bother me either way.

Great performance from forest, they could be looking at a play-off spot the way there playing of late.

Blackstock was fantastic, I can't praise this guy enough. He has a natural striker instinct, took his goal well, could of scored early on and very unlucky not to score when he hit the post. QPR must be kicking themselves for letting him go now.

I pass and I move, I help you, I look for you, I stop, I raise my head, I look and, above all, I open up the pitch…That’s the school of Vila, of Benaiges, of Cruijff – Xavi Hernandez

I really don't understand why they let him go either. I always thought he was good for them considering he joined as just a promising young kid. Still, their loss is our gain. He's a first starter now.

I can't believe QPR let Blackstock go either, sure he was inconsistent but he had some serious goalscoring talent at this level. It was the owners that decided to let him go to Forest and that was one of the main reasons why Sousa didn't really stay at the club very long, goes to show the owners of QPR know very little about football.

Anyway i didn't actually see the game at the weekend but what a result for Forest. They are looking very good at the moment and once they didn't get relegated last season i seem to remember saying in the Forest thread on SP if they get a few players in along with the young talent at the club already they will go far this season. Turns out i was right even though it still is early days!

Don't jinx it Si! :P

Another good win last night against a struggling Barnsley side. Stupid to have Mouissi sent off for a second yellow card, simply for celebrating. Ridiculous rule that should never have been brought into the game in the first place. What kind of sport would punish people for showing passion?
