Not what any of us expected of course but I’m quite enthusiastic, this is a test for those selected and how they cope without the big guns reliability, without those you would expect to see kind of levels out the players field for a Forest side who will struggle all season long for prem survival,
Steve Cooper our ex academy coach has done a sterling job at Forest and given time will build a very decent side, however I doubt his charges will have enough to do us any damage although knowing our luck they’ll Chuck in a spanner just for spite,
I imagine a 4-2-3-1 but could stick with a 4-3-3 considering being without Thiago, Nunez & Hendo, don’t envisage too many concerns from Forest but as always there’s no room for complacency in this league,
First league encounter between us two for 23 years !
Heart says 0-3, brains telling me 1-2
