Tree Middlesbrough V Forest - Score Predictions
Posted by: Tricky - Yesterday, 07:36 AM - Forum: Total Forest - 100% Nottingham Forest Talk - Replies (18)

With Forest not playing until Monday evening against the Boro (2nd March), will we see a well rested and raring to go Forest side, or will they still be snuggled up in their duvets? Can you predict the correct score against the Boro and topple the colossus that is Greek Empire from the top spot or does Sniffer Dog have to face another week of his missus lauding it?   Angel

Don't forget that Forest are away and their score is the second score you put down. 

Also to anyone fancying a go for the first time, we need an Half time and Full time prediction please. Just saying "I fancy us to win 4-0" will not be an eligible prediction for the league, but by all means, if you don't want to enter the league, feel free to share your prediction  Shy

Its over to you guys.................

I'm going for .........

HT 0-1

FT 0-3 Away win

I don't how many of you have read this from the NEP but the arrogance of the Weeds supporters is unbelievable. I hope we get into 2nd place and they fail in the play-offs. They seem to forget that we took 4 points off them and have took points off all the top 6.

Not sure when Sniffer Dog is coming back so thought I would do it this week.

The match is at the City Ground and will be played on Saturday 22 February with a kick off time of 3PM.

Promises to be a good open attacking game of football. Hopefully that will suit us.

Tree What Is The Clubs Transfer Strategy
Posted by: Widdow - 02-18-2020, 01:23 PM - Forum: Total Forest - 100% Nottingham Forest Talk - Replies (23)

Perhaps we need a trip to Denmark to see how Copenhagen have become the masters of the transfer market and get some advice / tips.

Few clubs in Europe can boast their hit rate. Their ability to find value in the market and turn quick profits, all while continuing to win trophies domestically and compete on the continent, marks the champions of Denmark out from the rest.

The list of player sales in recent transfer windows is remarkable.

Denis Vavro was sold to Lazio for £9.5m in the summer with Robert Skov joining Hoffenheim for £9m. Both had been signed for a fraction of those figures just two years earlier.

But they are just the latest in a long list. Robin Olsen was signed for £630,000 and sold to Roma for £8.1m. In the space of a single season, Jesse Joronen was signed for £800,000 and then sold on to Serie A side Brescia for £4.5m.

Copenhagen have been flipping players this way for years and winning titles along the way - twelve of them since 2001. In Europe, the consistency is remarkable. Copenhagen are one of only 15 clubs to have competed in the group stage of European competition in 13 of the past 14 seasons. It is a list that includes Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich. The difference is that Copenhagen had to qualify just to reach the group stage in all but one of those seasons.

So how have they managed it? What is striking is the consistency, not just in terms of the results but the identity of the personnel delivering them.
Stale Solbakken has been Copenhagen's manager for the past seven years having had an earlier five-year stint in charge. Lange was his assistant during that first spell but has spent the past six years in this new role as technical director, overseeing the club's vision.

They have a strong culture and four key principles that have been essential to the club's sustained success., a proactive strategy, stability among key personnel and a very clear style of play which has them punching above their weight in the European
 
They are not in a position to sign ten players every summer. No, scout a player for a long time. And when the bring someone in both the club, manager, fans a player have faith that is the one.
 
They have had to recalibrate the approach to the market to stay ahead by searching for tomorrow's competitive advantage and embracing new ideas.
 
Frederik Leth has been appointed as the club's head of scouting and analysis with a strong emphasis on a data-based approach. This use of statistical analysis has opened up new markets. Federico Santander was signed from a club in his native Paraguay before being sold on to Bologna in the summer of 2018. Eastern Europe is fertile ground now too.

"At the identification phase, our process is very data driven," explains Lange. "We are trying to find players earlier in their career. That is difficult to predict but it is important to try. "The partnership between myself, the manager and the scouts is crucial. We take time at the start of the process to establish exactly what we are looking for. Then we can set the parameters with the data. It is only after that stage that it becomes about live scouting.

"It helps that everyone knows their job and that Stale Solbakken has a clear style of play. It is difficult for the scouts if the style is changing from season to season.

"For example, if you watched Denis Vavro's performances for Zilina in Slovakia, you would not have seen a player whose performances were ready for a top-five league but the potential was definitely there. That is an example of recruitment based on our newer strategy, one that we have tried to fine tune over the past three or four years."

There is still a place for the more experienced player. Nicklas Bendtner passed through Copenhagen recently, while players such as former Brentford defender Andreas Bjelland and club captain Zeca, both 31, who all came in and hit the ground running and will be expected to lead the way against Celtic. 

"We need balance. The younger players need those players alongside them to fulfil their potential."

But the strategy is clear and something similar to what Brentford are doing.

I cannot see Forest’s strategy at moment, can you.

Onto our next fixture. A mouth watering contest against the Baggies at the Hawthorns.

can we do what we did after the Birmingham match and really turn it on against Albion? or did last nights shock defeat deflate us too much?

Don't forget that Albions score is the first score and ours is the second, unless otherwise stated

Me? I'm going to be optimistic and predict......

HT 1-1

FT 1-3

Away win (Forest win)
