Sky Sports pundit Don Goodman has criticised Nottingham Forest once again ahead of their play-off final against Huddersfield.
Go on, you’re not exactly surprised, are you?!
The man who simply loves to hate Forest has been at it again; this time during an interview with the Sky Sports EFL Podcast.
Once upon a time, Forest must have upset Goodman.
Either that or Forest don’t quite make his Bovril hot enough for his liking when he visits Trentside!
After last week’s win over Sheffield United, his first words were to praise the losers. Another shocker from Goodman…
“Well, you have to give praise to Sheffield United. They’ve been brilliant tonight and don’t deserve to lose.”
Any word for the victors, Don?
This week, he’s running his mouth again and once again he’s not been particularly kind about Forest.
Speaking ahead of the final, he told the Sky Sports EFL Podcast: “Make no mistake, if Nottingham Forest are going to beat Huddersfield at Wembley, they’re going to have to play well.
“They’re going to have to play a lot better than they did in that second leg at the City Ground. Huddersfield will make it hard for them and they have a couple of individuals with start quality.
“Sorba Thomas for instance, the delivery, those set-pieces they are going to threaten any team.”
Goodman criticises Forest again and Reds can ram words down his throat
This axe that Goodman clearly has to grind against Forest is now growing tiresome.
Pointing to Huddersfield having players with star quality is accurate but Forest also have plenty of ability in their ranks.
Brennan Johnson has 19 goals and 10 assists this season. Keinan Davis, Philip Zinckernagel and Sam Surridge are all match-winners on their day too.
Okay, Forest were pretty poor for 45 minutes against Sheffield United.
Goodman seems to have forgotten, however, that the Terriers were drab in their second leg against Luton and could have been 2-0 down inside half an hour!
Forest have plenty of incentive to try and win on Sunday; not least the offer of Premier League football on the table.
Silencing the irritating Goodman, however, must be extremely close to the top of the list.
You know what to do, Forest!
