The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: The Podcast Thread
Someone mentioned it on another thread, which reminded me I wanted to post about it in this one - the Tank episode of RRD. I thought he came across as a complete immature idiot. Of course, we all do stupid things when we're young, but he still seemed to think his behaviour was totally fine.

f*cking scousers.

10 minutes in and it's clear he's a massive tw@t. The anecdote about grabbing the speaker phone on a flight back from a pre-season tour and announcing that passengers should brace because the plane was going down isn't amusing in the slightest. Not that he thought so.

Introducing him as an 'absolute Forest legend' was a bit daft too.

We have as good a chance to win as any recent fixture at Pride Park. Of course, that doesn't mean we won't fcuk it up.

They have some exciting young players, but they are precisely that, young. I've seen plenty of Forest/d*rby games in the past where we've had those types of players and the occasion has got to them.

This time, experience is on our side and we have genuine match-winners of our own in Grabban, Carvalho and, chiefly, Lolley. Our chances sit squarely on their shoulders and if they turn up on the night.

The lack of centre-halves worries me greatly, mind.

And as a person what gets paid to write stuff for a living, I'm disappointed that you either don't understand the correct use of quotation marks or that you're disingenuously using them to attribute quotes to me that I didn't say in the first place. I didn't call it a "nothing game"...

Thank you. Wonderfully pompous.

If I was directly quoting you, I might have reached for double quote marks as you did. Instead, I was intending to gently tease you about your stance on the Chelsea game and it's lack of importance in the grand scheme of things (which seems at odds with most other views on here). We shouldn't risk getting key players injured, you said. We're not going to win the cup.

I went for single quote marks to indicate I was paraphrasing you in a less-than-serious way.

For the record, I don't necessarily disagree with you about our approach to Chelsea.

A punter on the Nottingham Post website has left a comment at the foot of a Forest story saying that he emailed Chelsea to complain about the meagre allocation of tickets for the FA Cup game. His argument was that, living quite some distance from Nottingham, it was difficult to get to home games and he was keen to go to Stamford Bridge but couldn't get a ticket.

He says he got a very prompt response from Chelsea explaining that they'd offered 15% of the stadium capacity (around 6,000 tickets) but Forest said 3,000 would be sufficient.

Early reports suggest that an expat living in eastern Canada had convinced the chairman it was a 'nothing game'...
