A devastating four-minute display from Fulham compounded the Reds to a fourth consecutive defeat at the City Ground.
Steve Cooper’s men have not lost the last two home games to teams that they hope will be in the relegation mix with them.
That certainly doesn’t bode well and some feel that the writing is already on the wall for the Reds this season.
Keys hasn’t really had a nice word to say about Forest since they ended 23 years of hurt and won promotion to the Premier League.
The disgraced former Sky Sports presenter now works overseas and he’s been stating his concern for the Reds.
He wrote in his blog: “Forest are in trouble. I said preseason the key for them would be winning home games. But they’re not doing that. I expect a whole lot more drama at the club yet.”
Forest did undergo an extremely busy recruitment drive during the summer, signing 22 new players.
It was needed though. No fewer than 20 departed the club, including five loan players who had been integral last season.
That was always likely to see a busy summer, yet some pundits still seem to take the lazy take that too many have been added.
Forest slammed by Keys and fans will have to get used to this
If Cooper put every detrimental word spoken about his team on the dressing room wall, there would be little room for anything else.
Keys is the latest in a long line of pundits who clearly can’t wait to pull Forest to pieces after each defeat.
It could be argued that Forest were unlucky not to get at least a point on Friday and it proved a steep learning curve.
Keys isn’t really relevant on these shores these days. The unfortunate thing about being in the Premier League is that more media scrutiny will ensue.
The challenge for Forest is to learn quickly and start ramming words down the throats of pundits like Keys.
