    Missed the boat

    Watching the game this evening and I was thinking to myself about the days when we well matched teams like Arsenal,
    How times have changed,
    in the early 90's we were a top 6 side but now we're years behind,
    Arsenal tonight were all one and two touch football and it seemed like a training session for them, the diffence between Championship and Premier League football is miles apart, Forest played five or six touch football and needed 8 chances not to score and Arsenal played one and two touch football with 6 chances to score 4, sad to see really,
    I'll probably be a grandfather before we see Arsenal type football again at the CG again.

    Yes things have changed. A few clubs with lots of money are able to buy the best talent around. The game is even more governed by market forces. Is there anyway we can get back to when the best players from one town played the best from another town. Apart from the Olympics I'm getting really disenchanted with sport today.

    Theres no chance now.
    We even have a chairman again who sells on our best talent.

    Burke/Bamford etc.

    I know it's a business, but to what end?

    I'd sooner pay to watch a Burke and Bamford from the academy, than any of the mercenaries we've signed over the years.

    Bamford has hardly gone on to be a world beater.lools like his attitude is getting in the way of him making any progress with a club.doughty was forced to sell him as he needed money.players move on and that's how it is with clubs like us.
