After Nottingham Forest crashed out of the League Cup yesterday, fans took to Twitter to show their dissatisfaction with the club.
The Reds lost to League One outfit Burton Albion 3-2 in what was a disappointing performance for a team hoping to make their first cup quarter-final in over two decades.
Manager Aitor Karanka had made ten changes from the team that had faced Leeds at the weekend in the Championship, and there is the feeling that he may have overlooked Burton.
Fans have taken objection to the performance, claiming it was too negative and indicative of the club’s season as a whole. As a result, Karanka has come under fire from fans, who are growing tired of the manager’s negative approach.
Forest host league leaders Sheffield United at The City Ground this Saturday, with many hoping that the manager can rectify the disappointing loss in the cup.
This is what the fans had to say:
Karanka out!! Mourinho 2.0 without the titles

Karanka should apologise for his inept negative tactics yet again.. him playing a reserve team and missing out our best chance of quater final for 24years..and thinking Osborn is a left back and the portguse lads are good enough.

10 changes got what deserved. Half team were woeful.

Total rubbish, played off the park by Burton and to be honest they could have had more 3-2 flatters #nffc @Karanka got his team selection totally wrong & blew a great cup opportunity for the fans! Only a couple of players come away with any credit

Terrible manager. Wasted millions on garbage players. £13m for Carvalho is just awful business.

Sorry Aitor apologising won’t cut it. How about apologising for your awful negative, time wasting tactics?

Negative play and not enough energy , how many times this season have we seen teams go at us and put us on the back foot..
The Burton game tonight has shown that some of these players are not good enough and that’s Karanka’s signings.
Couldn’t blame fans tonight Karanka.

That was embarrassing from start to finish. Karanka needs another big clearout of those who played last night. #nffc

Fed up of watching boring negative football, only 4 games this season have they actually played well. How we are 7th and got this far in cup I don’t know, ridden alot of luck it feels. But I’ve never not enjoyed watching forest as much as this I do now! Boring and negative.
