The side have made a mixed start to the new Championship season.
Nottingham Forest supporters were left frustrated as a Scott Hogan goal just before the half-hour mark saw Brentford seal a 1-0 win and handed Philippe Montanier his second defeat since taking over at the City Ground.
Forest had chances to take something from the game at Griffin Park, but Hildeberto Pereira, Eric Lichaj and Britt Assombalonga all squandered the opportunities that came their way.
Britt Assombalonga missed a good chance in the game
After a promising start to the campaign - Forest beat Burton in a pulsating game on the opening day and followed that up by winning against Doncaster in the League Cup - Montanier's men have been reminded that there is plenty of work left to do as the defeat to the Bees came just days after they were beaten 3-0 by Brighton.
Former Forest midfielder Guy Moussi took to Twitter after the game against Dean Smith's men and insisted that supporters should not get too downhearted as there is a long way to go in the campaign, and a lot of talent within the squad.
While some fans echoed the 31-year-old's thoughts that it is too early to write anything off yet, some supporters were less than happy about Montanier's decision to tinker with the system his side play once again, and suggested that that is work that should have already been done before the campaign began.
We need a more settled side. Too many of our best players not starting. Burke, Cohen, mancienne. Too many changes for me #nffc— steve (@trickynffc) August 16, 2016
Disappointing result tonight. PM needs time but has to look at a more settled side. Mills was atrocious. Velios needs time also #nffc— Adam O'Keeffe (@adamokeeffeAMP) August 16, 2016
I've think all #NFFC fans should lower their expectations to a top 10 finish. PM needs time, keep the faith. You reds!— Forest Central (@Forest_Central) August 16, 2016
don't agree with people wanting manager sacked. We are rebuilding. Results will come. Takes time. #nffc— dyl (@DylaaanBarker) August 17, 2016
1/2 To those criticising PM. If you were made boss of a 2nd div French team in July would your team be the finished article in August?#nffc— Thomas Ward (@Thomas_Ward92) August 17, 2016
Far too early in the season to press the panic button just yet! We need Britt, Burke, Mancienne, Cohen and Ward in the side regularly #nffc— Gibbo (@rgibbs79) August 17, 2016
You wouldn't make 6 changes and a change of formation on football manager and expect to win so why do it in real life! #nffc— james wright (@jez100) August 17, 2016
We are a work in progress but the amount of changes between games is worrying. #nffc— Cozbyn (@psychospen) August 17, 2016
