Nottingham Forest Relegation Odds: 7/4 after VAR Controversy


It was a big, and controversial afternoon of football in the Premier League relegation fight on Sunday, with Nottingham Forest on the end of a defeat and some strange refereeing, which saw them take to X (Twitter) to vent their frustration.

But at the bottom of the story, away from the media scrum around their comments post-game, the fact is that Nottingham Forest are dropping further into trouble.

That’s seen their relegation odds cut, while rivals at the bottom Everton have seen their odds grow, after a massive three points.

Premier League Relegation: Current Standings

Forest remain just above the relegation zone in 17th place. They are one point ahead of Luton, and three ahead of Burnley, who dragged themselves back into it with a big away win at Sheffield United. Everton, meanwhile, have kicked away and created a small gap, four ahead of Forest and five ahead of the bottom three, and they still have a game in hand.

  • 16th - Everton Pld 33 - Pts 30
  • 17th - Nottingham Forest Pld 34 - Pts 26

  • 18th - Luton Pld 34 - Pts 25
  • 19th - Burnley - Pld 34 - Pts 23

Nottingham Forest Relegation Odds

After their defeat to Everton, Nottingham Forest are now 7/4 for relegation to the Championship, and shortening all the time.

They are in a three-horse race with Luton and Burnley, because it looks as though Everton are going to pull themselves further clear. Two of those three teams will go down, and one will luckily remain in the Premier League.

Forest have four games left, and while yesterday was a disappointment for them, they do remain in control of their own destiny, and sit outsider of the relegation zone as things stand.

Nottingham Forest VAR Controversy

The tweet that made the headlines on Sunday was bizarre, very public, and something we are not used to seeing.

Nottingham Forest took to X (Twitter) in a bid to show just how angry they were at the whole situation.

The response probably isn’t the right way to go about their business, but Forest have every right to feel hard done by with what happened on Sunday.

The could have had three penalties, and probably should have had at least two, if not all three. Had we been sitting here on the back of them winning the game because they were awarded three penalties, I’m not sure Everton fans would be up in arms at the decisions.

Mistakes happen in football, it’s part of the game. One you can deal with, but to have three go against you, in such a big game, it’s easy to see why Forest are feeling like they are right now.

But they can’t dwell on the situation. Four games remain, and they need points to survive, so on the field, the team needs to move on from this, and get down to work.
