Field Notes

September 18, 2013

  • Phil Dowd was the centre of attention as Forest drew with Middlesbrough last night, but Billy Davies refused to risk another reprimand from the FA. In a frantic and strange game, substitutions were once again crucial as Derbyshire and Henderson got Forest on terms. It left Forest in fifth in the table and Tony Mowbray with mixed emotions, but ultimately was a better result for the visitors who are in 16th.
  • One Boro match report amusingly describes Davies as a pint-sized Primark Fergie, but a Seat Pitch editorial on the new low of media relations warns that comparisons with the former Manchester United supremo only go so far. You can read an interview with one of the journalists at the center of the controversy, the Guardian’s Daniel Taylor, on LTLF here.
