Field Notes

November 25, 2013

  • It’s déjà vu as Chris Cohen is ruled out for the remainder of the season with the injury that forced him to limp off during the closing stages of Saturday’s match. Apparently it’s not related to the injury that kept him out of most of the 2011/12 campaign, but sadly it seems Cohen is destined to be one of those players whose great talent is always stiffled by injury. Naturally we wish Chris the swiftest of recoveries.
  • Cohen’s injury will only add to the sense of injustice from the draw with Burnley – Forest played some of their best football and came up against a defensive Burnley side, but ultimately most of us left the ground – like punters at the Froch-Groves fight – feeling somewhat cheated. Some will blame the referee, others will once again say Forest wasted their chances, but either way Forest deserved more than they got out of that game. The good news is that our difficult November is nearly over and we’re still in the play-off zone. The fixtures only get easier now, but with our increasing injury list even matches against struggling Sheffield Wednesday and Birmingham City will be tough tests for the squad.
