This was the type of game we would have lost last in the last couple of seasons so although a below par performance i came away with some satisfaction. A different team may have resulted in even more joy. Miller had a poor game at Port Vale and apparently followed this with another shocker for the reserves against Burton. He looked slow, and lacking energy against Forest, which was just what you did not need. Buxton has been doing his best but has been the weakest link in the Wednesday team this season and the absence of O'connor put strain on the right side and the team was exposed by Forest regularly down this side. With Simek also appearing to be shadow of the player he once was (pace seems to have gone) we look to be short in this area. Took in the Academy game before the Forest game and there are some promising players amongst the team. A late goal enabled Everton to get a 2 - 2 draw. In my opinion they deserved to win and Oliver scored 2 good goals. Only player to not perform was Owls goalkeeper who looked nervous and lacking confidence. The rest did very well against a very large muscular looking Everton outfit.

been saying all summer that Oliver will get a look in this year he's been quality everytime i've seen him, well both times but every review raves about him too. Couldn't agree more on the RB area. Simeks off the pace and a lot of goals this season have come from poor positional play from Buxton, maybe Hinds would be worth a go at RB? Potter and Miller are prob too simular JOC gives midfield balance. Couldn't acually go yesterday watched highlights, just had wisdom tooth out my face looks like a hamster having a stroke, should be better by Tues Boro game should be more of a game of football

I thought Forest had the better chances yesterday, we were quite poor and too many players had off days (buxton, miller, johnson, varney to name a few). Having said that I was very disappointed in Forests negative and time wasting tactics. They were wasting time from as early as the 22nd minute. A couple United friends said they did it at piggylane last season and it was an embarrassment. Thing is they could have won yesterday if it was not for their negativity. Agree with caversham, we would have lost this game in the last few seasons, so all in all, im happy with a point.

i thought forests tactics were appauling yes they were successful but my god even my 8 year old son said if i was a forest fan i wouldnt go watch em play like this. hit the nail on the head for me and yet again for the third home game this season ive burnt my baldy head

Billy Davies seems to be the master of niggly tactics, Derby were very similar when they got promoted a few years ago except they didn't let any goals in and often won 1 nil. I've been quite happy with the last 2 results as this time last year we'd have most likely ended up losing these games. If we win the next two matches I'll be very pleased
