After a win at Rotherham and a slightly disappointing midweek trip to the Emirates, the Royals returned to the Championship against a Forest team in freefall. Trawling the Twittersphere it’s blatantly obvious that their fans ain’t happy.
A resounding 2-0 win with our customary 60%+ possession stats and a team that you could say didn’t really get out of 2nd gear but a toothless Forest seemed to struggle to cope with Reading’s ex-Nottingham players and for once the curse of the returning scorer wasn’t playing against us.
So after looking at numerous tweets about the game, most of them unusable due to some 'old English' and I failed dismally to find ONE tweet in favour of the current ownership.
So onto the twittersphere and the comments from a slightly upset Forest Faithful
Hindsight's a wonder thing
Don't forget the clocks go back wish we could put the #nffc back to 2012 and take the other investor who wanted us— NFFCfamily (@Nffcfamily) October 29, 2016
Every cloud has a silver lining etc...
Best thing about today is my 5 quid returned 8 quid with Reading to win and under 2.5 goals #nffc— ok spider man (@ffsforest) October 29, 2016
There's somethings football should leave behind
My 2 kids witnessed fights at Reading amongst forest fans. My youngest son now refuses to go to a match again. Disgraceful. Shameful. #nffc— Neale Callender (@rockleydesigns) October 29, 2016
Should be some good entries on this

#NFFC need drastic action or it's a relegation scrap. Can't continue to maintain the status quo anymore, owner needs to go, and go now.— Stan Collymore (@StanCollymore) October 29, 2016
You can build on this
Gotta love a good quote

It was a fairly decent performance from the Royals although Stam thought otherwise and we march on to Wigan away on Saturday, another team in threat of relegation, although on Wednesday they announced a new manager so hopefully we won't get the backlash of the the 'trying for a new manager' syndrome.
We are up to 5th - lets be honest we would all take that at this stage of the season. I'm back after the Wigan game with the views of the Latics faithful.
