Nottingham Post says that Brolly is going to "raid" us for Ward. Not so much a raid as an unmitigated surrender!

Apparently Dowell is refusing to sign a new Everton contract. One year left, so only compensation to pay. Any Reds fancy a punt or maybe not an AK player? Early season Dowell, yes please but properly went off the boil at the end. Thoughts?

Believable3 6Unbelievable

19 May 2018 07:01:51
A talented player there is no doubt just needs a good manager to develop such as AK, and a sound investment. If he opted to stay that world say a lot for AK as he hardly played him

Agree2 0Disagree

19 May 2018 07:37:33
Not for me, he needs to improve a lot on his physicality and mental side of the game. He has moments of class but we need consistent performers with some grit.

Agree6 0Disagree

19 May 2018 10:37:01
Not tough enough for the Championship, doesn't run back and tackle, gives the ball away too much. Keep well away I'd say.

Agree3 1Disagree

19 May 2018 11:15:21
Not surprised he has not signed. He needs to decide whether he wants to be playing relegation football with Neverton or promotion football as our playmaker next season?

Missed off relegation Sutton.
That was looming large and got him sacked? Whoops done that?
He could learn how to score goals?
Holds the record of longest spell in our history without scoring.
He's still got a lot to learn about management.☝☝☝

Agree5 9Disagree

18 May 2018 23:32:31
Aps 1952 he's replacing a manager with a far better c.v than Karanka though.
People can laugh all they like about Holloway,but he has been succesfull.
At least the wally with the brolly walked away from us without a payoff when he knew he'd been duped along with along with the bin yin.
Got respect for those two for taking no compo and realising they were sold a dud.

I'm not convinced by Karanka at all. After 10 games if we are bottom with zero goals scored then he has to go! No way should a team go 7 games without a goal. And his january signings tho some were ok, some were awful

Agree4 4Disagree

19 May 2018 08:24:27
Isn’t that the same with most managers?some signings are good some awful?was every player great who fergie signed maybe wengers signings were all top players.every manager signs duds even the great warbo dropped some in there.

Agree3 1Disagree

19 May 2018 11:13:11
No manager scores goals its the players on the pitch! AK has inherited rubbish strikers at Forest and was not exactly backed by Gibson when they went up to buy top class goal scorers. He will get our goal ratio closer to 60:40 which will get us into the top half which is more than the last few managers have managed!

Agree1 1Disagree

19 May 2018 23:52:33
So Gibson didn't back him red?
And Rhoades.
That's a lot of strikers and better quality than we have,but Karanka couldn't get them scoring.
Just saying

Agree3 2Disagree

20 May 2018 07:52:27
Adomah isn’t a a winger.
Kike Sola was on loan and played 50 mins of football.
Kike scored a goal every 2.6 games.
Nsue played right back for boro as well not up front.
So two of those “strikers” weren’t “strikers” one didn’t play,not sure if he was injured and one had a decent strike rate.
O and negredo which was a loan so didn’t cost a fee so not really backed with that one as such.

Agree1 2Disagree

20 May 2018 13:39:18
Nsue is a forward or midfield or right back.
But essentially he can still be classed as a striker.
Adomah often plays as a striker,So still a striker.
10mill for Rhoades
6mill for Bamford
4mill for gestede
List goes on,and negrado the loan player ends up top scorer with ten.
So at the end of the day that not bad backing by a chairman in my opinion.
I'd be more than happy if marinakis says "heres 30 million plus" to spend

Really? You bang on from your box seat in the BC Stand about being entertained and attacking football and then offer us Big Sam!!!
Well at least you are getting over your Warbo phobia?
Or maybe you now are coming around to the Karanka way of mixing experience with youth, strong defence and putting results ahead of flair having moulded his team?

Big Sam's wages would put us into FFP trouble whereas AK is young enough to do a Big Sam Bolton and give us success and stability?
Come on join the AK Fan Club you know it makes sense?

We are supposed to be looking at Edwards of Peterborough, so their owner has said.

So Marriot, Maddison, and now Edwards, if they were to happen our owner should offer their owner some of our shares.

What I don't understand is why doesn't karanka use his Spanish connections and and bring in a few hidden gems which I would of thought is the main reason the fat Greek guy employed him for yet all we ever get linked with is middle aged journeymen. we all know Spanish footballers are better then english yet it seems dean marney and michael Dawson are going put fuel in are fire . Sort us out karanka.

Italians are supposed to be better than English players, that went well when Platt was Forest manager.

The players a club are linked to and the players they get are not always the same, some choose different clubs, and some are just fiction from the media.

Karanka will only want players based on experience of the Championship, or their play is suited to the Championship.

apparently derby may be wanting to cash in on vydta to cut back their wage bill bext season, and would want 8mil for him. of everyone we've been linked with i'd prefer vydra to them all, especially at 8mil which i think is a good price for him. would they want to sell to us though?

Carlo and Sutton make a good point over Evtimovs lack of opportunity at Forest. If memory serves me well he made one mistake v Wednesday in a game that he had otherwise done well in and that was him done, banished never to return. Think back how many mistakes Smith was making fairly regularly and it does seem tough on the lad to never be given another chance imo. Having said that Pants is by far the best option out of the current bunch and I hope AK can land him for next season.

Danny Fox as had an excellent season beside Figueiredo and was my choice for POY but we still need a big strong kick and head it centre half at the side of Fig if we are ever going to stop the set piece mayhem that as cost us dear all season. Why not push Foxy forward into the midfield anchor role were his lack of height would not matter as much and his good passing range could be a plus with his natural defensive instincts covering the back four. It could also save the club a lot of dosh, eg Colback. U REDS.

Believable6 5Unbelievable

14 May 2018 12:10:06
People say look how jl is now at Newcastle and say we should of kept him.maybe he’s grown into that player because of the Newcastle staff and more importantly playing with better players.the same will happen to Worrall he will go to a better club and the staff will bring him in better than what the forest staff will.jl looked shocking and times for it and at best average

Agree3 1Disagree

12 May 2018 21:48:50
Carlo and Sutton make a very valid point about Evtimov. I have often thought the lad deserves a better chance to prove himself considering how long he as been at the club. If memory serves me he made one mistake against Sheffield Wednesday and gone, discarded to be forgotten. Smith made many mistakes but was never treat in the way that Evtimov as been. Really hope AK gives him that chance before sending on his way as I think he might surprise a lot of people. Pantillimon is still the pick of our current crop though. U REDS.

Believable5 3Unbelievable

12 May 2018 22:30:59

12 May 2018 22:49:03
Retford can't remember Smith making many mistakes and he kept us up last season v Ipswich. Hasn't done much wrong and suddenly he's 3rd choice.I feel sorry for him,very unlucky imo.Hopefully he 'll keep working and prove AK wrong. Must be a bit demotivatedthough but he's young and will bounce back.

12 May 2018 23:57:16

Not impressed with Kapino.

Agree0 3Disagree

13 May 2018 17:42:37
Smith and Kapino just need experience. Both are sill young especially for keepers and though Kapino played regularly in Championship season for Olympiakos and has played for Greek national team and in Champions league he is in a new country and doesn’t speak much English yet but I think given time he could be decent, I feel he looked ok with crosses and shot stopping but his control of area lacked and communication but that may be a language issue which can improve. Karanka said he liked Smith but he needs more experience. I would like to see Kapino stay and be back up next season and Smith maybe go on loan to league one for a season.

Agree2 0Disagree

13 May 2018 18:00:25
Hoofing is better than the poor distribution from Smith is it not?how many times did smith put us under pressure after poor passes out from the back?but I suppose that’s the way barca and city play isn’t it?

Agree3 1Disagree

13 May 2018 20:02:14
Sutton we don't play that type of football under Karanka,so Smith's distribution wouldn't be a problem.
When your hoofing it to a young lad up fr0nt with an ageing midfield behind an 40 yards away,even if he wins it??
Guess what happens??
It comes straight back.🤔🤔

11 May 2018 23:15:46
I see a lot of people seem happy to sell worral for a good price. And while I agree 8-10 mill is a great price, I think we need to remember that centre backs develop later. Remember lascelles was pretty much 4th choice cb when he left us. Wouldn't mind having him now!
would personally love to keep worral even if he's not first choice next year (which he prob won't be)

Believable13 1Unbelievable

12 May 2018 07:17:03
But if we need to sell to buy, Worrall is the most despensible of our youth. He's not that good and quality CB can be picked up quite cheap. Look at Figs for example, better CB than Worrall and cost a quarter of Worralls supposed value. BB and cash on the other hand, much harder to replaced a few seasons down the line if they meet their potential.

Agree10 0Disagree

12 May 2018 12:34:52
I disagree I wouldn't contemplate selling any of the homegrown players other than grant as I believe we need them moving forward plus I believe a decent young center back is almost as valuable as a 20 a season striker

12 May 2018 12:41:22
B.B.? Surely not ? Can’t see it myself right now. He has zero attributes of great striker at the minute.

Sorry redmash they are players we need once we have a stronger squad we can't afford that kind of value sitting on the bench till the club's finances are a lot better and we don't have to sell to buy

Agree5 0Disagree

12 May 2018 18:59:47
Whether we like it or not every player has his price. There are too many factors embroiled within that prospective sale for us as fans to comprehend. All I would ask as a fan is that the money from the sale be spent wisely! Marriott anybody?

On loan to the likes of millwall I believe and looked nothing to get excited about.
Brereton is far better than you give him credit for.
When he takes a penalty you know where it's going and that's the sign of a goalscorer,Just need better players to supply him.
At nineteen and in a struggling side he's done well.
A lot on here wouldn't know anyway as they wanted vellios in and what a waste of space he is.
Or is it the system we play that makes them look bad??

Agree2 4Disagree

13 May 2018 07:16:17
Defo he’s got bottle no doubt there. Now vellios is another matter and I’d be doing one straight down to the CG and demanding my money back for next season now if I thought vellios would be anywhere near the first team . I’d take Brereton over any of our other strikers at the moment. I just don’t believe he’s ready for that responsibility yet.

A bit like what I said about Osborn getting player of the year, it shows how bad we are one we’d say their performances are worthy of praise. It’s a biggger criticism of the other players around them actually.

Agree2 2Disagree

13 May 2018 08:15:37
I'm not saying he's the finished article, he's far from it and is really frustrating in most games. But he is only 19 and we know the quality is in there somewhere, just look at what he did to arsenal. Now it's about getting that out of him consistently. He'll be a very good striker in the future I have no doubt.

Agree3 1Disagree

13 May 2018 08:46:49
Well I’d be made up if he is because we’ve not had a consistent or for one for far too long now. The potential that was there when we had Antonio, Fryatt and assombalonga was mouth watering for that league until the curse struck again. I can’t shift my view that I’d osborn and Brereton is what we shout about right now then we are bad. Ben and Ben are average at best. It compounded if for me how bad we’ve been this season when Osborn had provided the most memorable performances of the season. It doesn’t mean I don’t like him or value his efforts, it does mean that the bar needs raising massively if we want to avoid the bottom six next season.

Agree2 0Disagree

13 May 2018 09:38:19
If he had the right service he would score? Ha ha don’t make me laugh. He missed chance after chance in the last game. Tomlin sent him through on goal and he fumbled it , Tomlin was so annoyed he gave him a rollicking. Most of us on here would of scored given that service. We need new strikers and that glaringly obvious.

Agree6 1Disagree

13 May 2018 11:03:03
APS if they’re good enough they’re old enough. Enough said. When you drill into the comment I’m sure good enough means physically and mentally good enough. That’s why it’s nonsense to say we should soft soap around the younger players. Great players deal with adversity the same as older players. It’s all part of being a great footballer. If you watched any quota of games last season it’s clear , absolutely clear that Worrall and Brereton are a bit away yet. That’s why once there were other viable options Worral was taken out of the first team. So much so it was better to play a left back instead of him. Same thing would have happened to Brereton but there was no other viable option., each time it was tried it was proven to not be viable. Fair play to the lad for doing this best to fill a void - we had no one else.
Now young cash on the other hand I believe is a different kettle of fish altogether and does have what it takes, even so, little is said about him in comparison to Brereton, who a few appear a bit fixated with. Perhaps it’s that desperation for a good striker to come out of the academy. I understand why if that is the reason.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 May 2018 12:25:13
Good post 2 star and a fair reflection of where we are at the moment.
But in Worrall,Osborn and Brereton and even Smith,whoes been treated appallingly ,it gives something to build on.
Clough and McKay are only Osborn age and showed in their first few games that they have talent and goals in them as well.
Problem with young players is they are inconsistent and need good coaching and coaxing to get the best out of them.

If you take Osborn for example at 23 he's played under about 7 different managers and been played differently by them all,that doesn't help either.
It's about finding the right manager in the first place,
Get that right like Burnley and Bournemouth did and success follows

Agree1 0Disagree

13 May 2018 16:24:01
For sure FF, I wonder if our coaching could improve .

13 May 2018 21:47:16
Other thing 2 star is Dowell was brilliant and scored for fun in his early days??
They don't suddenly become bad players,they just have a dip in form.
It's about managing that and taking them out the firing line when needed without destroying their confidence??
