Nottingham Forest missed a valuable chance to overtake their promotion rivals by losing to Charlton in midweek, and some fans still haven’t forgiven Sabri Lamouchi for that result.
The Reds’ boss took full responsibility for Tuesday’s defeat after his multitude of changes backfired, with Forest not only losing but looking far from their best with just two shots on target. Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s crucial clash against West Brom, Lamouchi called for the need for consistency from his side, but some fans have reacted by suggesting that there needs to be some consistency from the manager and his team selection.
🗣 "We just need to focus on the next, keep the consistency and keep working because this is the Championship." #NFFC

Despite that, the Forest boss seems to be remaining optimistic about his team’s chances and that confidence will be needed in the remaining 14 games, as there will likely be more stumbling blocks from now until the end of the season. Supporters have mostly responded with hostility to their manager’s comments, with a few examples of their reactions being evidenced below.
That will only happen if you start your best 11 and make sure Yates and Walker are no where the first team.

Yes consistency is the key. So try to be consistent with team selection and don’t swap out 50% of a winning side for no reason #crucialgames

What do you make of Lamouchi’s comments Forest fans? Does he need to listen to his own advice and pick a consistent side, or was he let down by his back-up players against the Addicks on Tuesday? Comment below…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
