Premier League: Nottingham Forest 1-1 Brentford

By Score More The only Sunday Premier League match took place at The City Ground, where Nottingham Forest aimed to secure their second home win of the season after suffering defeat against Manchester City in their previous outing. Brentford, managed by Thomas Frank, sought to bounce back from a disappointing home defeat by Everton. The game began with a poignant tribute to Maddy Cusack, a Forest academy product who tragically passed away the previous week. Once the match started, Steve Cooper's Forest side attempted to take control early on. They earned an early free kick, which was taken by Callum Hudson-Odoi, but Brentford defended it well. Brentford struggled to establish themselves in the opening minutes and believed they had conceded a goal in the 8th mi...

Premier League: Man City 2-0 Nottingham Forest

By Score More Manchester City's scintillating form in the early stages of the season defies their usual trend of gradually finding their rhythm. This year, they've hit the ground running, resembling a team in peak form even in September, with a style of play that's almost reminiscent of their peak performance months later in the season. Nottingham Forest, their opponents, could only watch in admiration until a glimmer of hope emerged with Rodri's red card. Despite this setback, City managed to maintain control comfortably. One Forest supporter in the stands, frustrated with his team's performance, called out, "Come on Forest, work hard," but it wasn't a matter of effort for manager Steve Cooper's side. Facing an opponent that orchestrated an opening goal with an impressive 46-pass s...

Premier League: Nottingham Forest 1-1 Burnley

By Score More Callum Hudson-Odoi made a memorable return to the Premier League, reminding fans of his capabilities as he scored a brilliant debut goal that secured Nottingham Forest a 1-1 draw against Burnley. It's been 18 months since the 22-year-old last graced England's top flight, as his once-promising Chelsea career seemed to lose momentum. However, after a year-long loan spell at Bayer Leverkusen, he made a spectacular comeback. Following his deadline-day transfer from Stamford Bridge, Hudson-Odoi shone as Forest's standout performer. He drew his team level with a remarkable curling strike in the second half, answering Zeki Amdouni's earlier goal for Burnley. Hudson-Odoi reunites with Steve Cooper, his former manager during his time with the England Under-17 World Cup-winning...

Premier League: Chelsea 0-1 Nottingham Forest

By Score More Chelsea endured a painful 0-1 defeat against Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge, with their own mistakes leading to the loss. The match, played under sunny skies, was devoid of excitement, and Mauricio Pochettino's team ultimately succumbed to The Tricky Trees due to an Anthony Elanga counterattack goal, following a game filled with persistent fouls. Scoring opportunities were scarce in the first half, with the best chance actually falling to the visitors as Taiwo Awoniyi sent his shot over the bar from just six yards away. The second half began as a nightmare for CFC when Moisés Caicedo was dispossessed in midfield, allowing Awoniyi to set up Elanga for the decisive goal. Chelsea's attempts to mount a comeback were sluggish and ineffective, with Nicolas Jackson missi...

By Score More Match Summary and Highlight Reel: Nottingham Forest, with 10 players due to Joe Worrall's sending-off, saw a two-goal lead slip as Manchester United roared back to win 3-2.

Nottingham Forest Urgently Seeks New Center-Back Ahead of Transfer Window Closure, Says Karen Carney

By Score More Karen Carney insists that Nottingham Forest must secure at least one more center-back before the summer transfer window concludes. Reds' defender Felipe is sidelined due to an ongoing knee issue, although Moussa Niakhate returned to the first team after recovering from a dislocated elbow sustained during the pre-season. Under Steve Cooper's management, the team has utilized a formation with three central defenders in their two league matches this season. Scott McKenna, Joe Worrall, and Willy Boly have formed the trio that started against both Arsenal and Sheffield United. Despite their strengths, none of them possess natural speed. While Forest is still in the market for a new central defender, they have yet to make significant progress in securing reinforcements for...
