Whilst Nottingham Forest managed to come away with a point against Millwall on Friday night (BBC), a number of the fans had decided to take to Twitter to slam Sabri Lamouchi’s tactical decisions for the match.
“The second half was much better, defensively and offensively and the attitude was totally different. A draw was logical.” #NFFC

The Tricky Trees found themselves go behind when Shaun Williams opened the scoring inside the first quarter-of-an-hour with a header, however the manager appeared to make the change that he needed to make the tie level.
Lamouchi brought on Lewis Grabban just after the hour mark and was immediately repaid as the forward managed to get himself on the scoresheet just moments later.
Indeed, the striker also put the visitors ahead with just minutes of the match remaining, however Aiden O’Brien spoilt things for Forest as he netted just before the final whistle to make the Reds return to Nottingham with just a solitary point.
Fans took to Twitter after hearing Lamouchi’s post-match remarks and were all of the same opinions – the manager got things wrong tactically, with many of them calling for him not to repeat the same mistake moving forward.
Here are just some of their reactions…
But, let’s not hide from the fact that your team selection and formation were completely inept and inappropriate. What’s logical is that we got better when we put our better players on the pitch.

A certain forest manager used to pick his best eleven from the start

Being 2 1 up with only minutes left a win would have been more logical but, glad for a draw given the poor tactical approach in the 1st half

Played for a draw I can’t get over this. Rubbish starting line up

No excuse for weird formation start of first half obviously its learning curve need to work on
