It's what I was worried about when we signed him.
Doubly frustrating as in Collison we have a young, mobile, talented player whose best position is the one Nolan plays.
Sure, Nolan is without doubt a decent player, a very good captain and seems to need a few matches to get up to speed, but I hope Sam's isn't going to be one of those stubborn managers who just has to pick his favourites, regardless of form
I had my reservations about Sam when he joined, some of which have been strengthened in the weeks he's been at the club. I've given him the benefit of the doubt so far, and will continue to do so, but some of the decisions he's made so far have left me pretty much baffled. He seems to be making similar mistakes to the ones we were used to seeing from Grant. I just hope he's learning from them, is prepared to change things that aren't working, even if it means admitting he got things wrong, rather than blindly heading down the same path
Early days for sure, and far too soon to really form an opinion, but I do feel Sam needs to change a few things from how he has started if we are to have a realistic chance of promotion
As for Forest.... it's an away game, so suits the one up front formation he has favoured so far.
I'd start with Cole up front, Faubert on the right, Taylor on the left, and have Stanislas & Barrera on the bench.
Personally I'd start with Nolan behind Cole, and Collison on the bench, and if Nolan isn't cutting it, give Jack a go between Cole & the midfield
