The Forest manager admits he was trying to bring on Greg Halford for Daniel Ayala prior to the latter's dismissal shortly before the break.

O'Driscoll said: "I don't know what it was before half-time, not long, but suck it and see.

"That would have been preferable rather than getting him geared up but you think when you're on a yellow card and the referee's warned you that one more misdemeanour and you're off, you would be a little bit more cautious but Daniel's 20 years of age.

"We've all been young once and made mistakes and unfortunately he's made his."

O'Driscoll felt his team competed well, but paid the price when Danny Collins failed to convert a good chance.

"I thought we were a threat. I thought we had the best chance," O'Driscoll added. "Danny Collins' header should really have scored - a free header inside the six-yard box.

"But the first goal in the Championship is always crucial. They got it, we've been down before but we felt we were still well in the contest."

his isn't directed at Van Gaal in particular, but, let's be honest, you don't have to be a tactical genius to beat Arsenal at the moment do you? I will say one thing...he put Van Persie on Monreal deliberately? Our Robin hardly had a touch did he? So did that really work? Hmmm....I'd stick to substituting Keepers (yes,yes, it was directed towards him in the end....)

hat a load of Bull***t. DiMaria hardly had a kick and they won because of a dodgy offside and a breakaway goal when Arsenal were chasing. Good luck to them they got their points but to try and claim this as some sort of tactical masterstroke is laughable, It was luck pure and simple.

It's a Mailbox many will have been waiting. Brendan Rodgers gets a little bit of a stick, but there is at least praise for Manchester United,Van Gaal, Palace and Tottenham...

Oh Arsenal. Why Oh Why Oh Effing Why?

We have plenty of fallout from Arsenal's latest display of outrageous incompetence, plus the question of why every team seems to be getting worse. Plus, another Garcia ghost goal...
