Nottingham Forest: Fans slam James Garner display

Nottingham Forest: Fans slam James Garner display -Nottingham Forest News

Many Nottingham Forest fans have been left slamming the display of James Garner in their 1-1 draw at home to Sheffield United on Tuesday night.

In a cagey affair which saw seven yellow cards in total given out, including to Forest manager Steve Cooper, Lewis Grabban managed to salvage the draw for the home team after Morgan Gibbs-White, on loan from Wolves, gave the Blades the lead with just over 10 minutes to go.

Garner, who will be eager to impress on loan from Manchester United, did not have the best of games, and NFFC supporters were particularly critical of his deliveries from crosses and set pieces.

Should Nottingham Forest start Garner?





The central midfield player was inaccurate with nine of his crosses – by far the most out of any player on the pitch – and also failed with three of his long ball attempts (SofaScore).

Garner also lost out on four of his duels, and failed to record a single shot on goal, dribble or clearance, while he lost possession of the ball on no fewer than 20 separate occasions in the match, the second most out of any of his teammates (SofaScore).

These Forest fans slammed his performance on Twitter, with a couple even going as far as to claim that he was ‘woeful’:

“Spence class, Garner (was he actually playing?) a shadow of his former self. As for the corners again, they ain’t very good. Plenty of other positives, but we’ve got to do better at home no doubt about it.”

“Quite enjoyed that game. Showed how we don’t have a lot of strength in depth. Djed Spence immense again. Garner woeful, thankfully Colback back in the centre for the weekend.”
