I know, I know, we pay the money we can react how we want. I know I know, you’ve seen Donny’s last two results and you now know everything about Doncaster and how bad they are and Norwich should have won by at least seventeen goals. I know, I know we’re meant to be Premier League.
Lest we forget this time last season we were in League One, and the year before that we were mercilessly getting beaten with inept performance upon inept performance. And Donny were in fact one of the most attractive teams to watch outside of the Premier League last season, with a very talented manager at the helm. They’re not a whipping boy scraping by in the Championship anymore. And we’re not supposed to be in the Premier League, if we were, we would be.
A very low-key performance didn’t yield a loss, in fact it could have been much, much worse for City. Forest dropped points at the league’s bottom club and we’re still within touching distance of second. Less than a year after promotion back to a league we haven’t finished higher than 9th since the Premier League days.
