DOUGIE: PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE
DOUGIE Freedman is confident his Nottingham Forest revolution will be a success but admits his approach requires patience in the stands as well as on the field.
Forest had won seven of their last ten games before yesterday’s trip to Norwich, including an impressive 2-0 triumph over Rotherham on Wednesday night.
They had a lot of possession against the Millers but often took a while to carve out clear-cut opportunities, to the frustration of some supporters.
However, Freedman has urged the fans to trust him and his system.
“There is a strategy to what we do.You cannot just hit the ball up to the striker and tell him to get on with it,” said Freedman.
“We are making sure that we can play a little bit more. I want to do that because the Forest fans deserve it. The fans will get used to me – they will get used to me having a patient build-up.
“Against Rotherham I could hear one or two voices in the stands calling for us to get the ball forward and attack.
“Well, no.We will attack when we are ready to attack.”
