At least the unbeaten streak is still alive. & yes, glad Grabban only got a brace. He always scares me to death.

They had chances, we had chances. A fought for point.
This is why you need iFollow. Watching the match is entirely different from seeing the ticker tape. Plus, they just added rebroadcasts so you can watch the whole match at your leisure.
Thanks, I’m looking to giving myself a retirement gift (Dec. 30). This is a great idea!

That ref was absolutely inconsistent. At one end, Forest get a soft penalty from Rodwell, at the other end, Dack gets pushed to the ground and no penalty. There was no consistency between the calls.

Rovers really should have gotten the 3 points. They played much better, had better chances, and just seemed more composed at times to make things happen.

Thank you Dan for posting that. It just looks like he was going to go to ground regardless.

How can a penalty be called when you trip (or flop) over a players foot that is already past you? Horrible call

Bad defending to blame. Rodwell should have tried to show him down the outside rather than let him run into the middle. You stick out a foot and the attacker is going to fall over it.

i think you just generally assume one of the officials will spot a twat blatantly diving.
