Steve Sutton has left the club as goalkeeper coach and has been replaced by someone from . wait for it .
rangers. who would of thought!

Believable0 3Unbelievable

27 May 2017 21:29:31
More structure into the club if you take the trouble to read Stewarts CV and remit.

Steve Sutton has been a great servant but we need a coaching structure and ethos running through all levels of the club.

Onward and Upwards.

Stewart looks a good signing. The new owner must have given the ok.

24 year old, Giannis Gianniotas (pronounced "yanis yan-yotas") is linked with a move to NFFC from Olympiakos.

Currently on loan at APOEL Nisosea in the Cypriot first division. Highly thought of by Marinakis and can play: RW, LW, CAM and ST.

Interestingly, him and Vellios have the same agent - although trying to not read into that too much. Would offer good competition in key areas.

So the Greek rates him? what about the bloke who will be training him and putting him in the team, does he rate him?

I'm sure the medical team will have a cure for yanis yan-yotas? LOL.

27 May 2017 12:28:26
It of course remains to be seen whether MW and AM wants him.

As a Brit from Greek descent, I can tell you the Greek Leagues are very different to here (as you'd expect) . It may we'll be the case they won't sign him on a season long loan.

I'm sure the team have a number of options in this area anyway.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 May 2017 12:46:48
If this is true will we do what watford did and have a team of loans from the owners other club.

Agree0 1Disagree

27 May 2017 13:07:53
I have faith the football league put a stop to this and no team can do this anymore. so it won't be happening here.

Agree0 1Disagree

27 May 2017 13:11:24
Mebbes I'm wrong, but I want to leave it Warburton to make the decisions about who to bring in, not Marinakis.

Agree6 0Disagree

27 May 2017 13:39:05
Good to hear utf. hopefully it is mw making the decisions cause that was a reason for him leaving brentford. i'd like to see a settle club now no more circus.

Agree1 0Disagree

27 May 2017 13:58:06
So just because we are linked with him, doesn't mean that marinakis is behind it.

He's put in place McParland to do this with MW. I think some of the above poster should are still stuck in the Fawaz era perhaps?

Anyone we bring in or have been linked with will have been outlined by the forest backroom staff, not the owner.

Marinakis' ownership of Olympiakos is testiment to this.

Agree0 2Disagree

27 May 2017 14:51:18
Ldn as I havnt seen this in the papers or anything I am going off what you said "highly thought of by the Greek". you out that in your post not me and I was stating that it doesn't matter what he thinks it should be up to the manager and dof, now if it's got something to do with the owner we will end up back at square one!

Agree2 0Disagree

27 May 2017 15:22:26
Up the forest - if you look on the bird site for our Greek journalist we all get info from you will see me talking to him. My sources are from within Greece and not from broadsheets in England.

The info I received has been confirmed by this journalist.

Agree0 2Disagree

27 May 2017 19:10:17
What are you talking about now? iv not rubbished your reports or anything of the sorts.
All I'm saying is if your source says the Greek highly rates him what good is that to us? our last owner did this and look where it got us.
What does it matter if a shipping magnet thinks a player is good or not?

Agree3 1Disagree

27 May 2017 22:02:12
Why are you attacking me for providing a 'rumour' you obviously weren't aware of?

You've propelled my previous comment on the thread by suggesting you're still stuck believing everything will be the same as it was under Fawaz?

Be happy we've moved on!


Agree1 1Disagree

27 May 2017 22:09:13
Furthermore, you have indirectly questioned the validity of it - which is fine as this is a rumour site however your reasoning for it was that you haven't seen it yourself.?

Either way - I've total faith that the proven team in place will deliver in the transfer market.

Let's get behind whoever it is they bring in!

Agree2 1Disagree

27 May 2017 22:36:14
I have not attacked the rumour nor have I indirectly questioned the validility of your rumour.
I said I havnt seen this rumour in the papers and was going off what you have said. that's not attacking or questioning it it's simply saying iv not looked for nor have I seen it and all I can go off is what you have seen.

All I have questioned is that the OWNER rates him which in my eyes should be the last person we should be using to scout people.
For some reason you seem to have taken to heart what i've put, but if you read my posts again iv not done anything you have accused me of.

Agree1 1Disagree

28 May 2017 09:05:42
If you you tube the greek player he does look good, scores some good goals as well 10 last season.
Id bring him in on that evidence, fast and tricky as well,

Agree2 0Disagree

28 May 2017 13:21:14
Lol. good old YouTube clips. robbie findley ring any bells everyone pointed to YouTube clips of him. we know how that ended.

Agree1 4Disagree

28 May 2017 13:37:19
Little positivity here UpTheForest? This is just a rumour after all!

Agree2 0Disagree

28 May 2017 14:19:33
i will show a bit of positivity towards this rumour or another when it's the manager who rates the player and not someone who should be letting people do there jobs to the full.
5 goals in 24 games in a poor league
1in 9 season before
4 in 27 season before
Can't see him being much competition for Britt or vellios to be fair nor ward. youtube shows the best of a player, have you seen him play a full game? hows his first touch? crossing any good? can he take a player on? can he do it at a decent level? can he perform through a 90min game and not just 2mins on YouTube?
YouTube cannot answer any of those questions nor can the owner of our football club, only warbs and his staff can tell us that and they are the ones we should be listening to and not the owner.

Agree2 3Disagree

28 May 2017 14:53:40
I think you might be getting out of hand with this "owner rating him" malarkey. If any enquiry has actually been made it's because the coaching staff want him - the same for any player that does come in.

Of course none of us who watch this video are able to answer any of those points but we aren't the ones in the scouting department privy to all information and neither do we have the choice whether we sign him or not. How could we

Warburton and McParland will be making these assessments. The days of us singing Kuwaiti keepers because our owner likes him are hopefully behind us.

If we sign anyone, it'll be down to MW and AM.

Agree2 2Disagree

28 May 2017 16:26:39
Really? vellios was given to us by our new owner last summer so which scouting system picked him? more of the same with the sounds of it.

Agree1 1Disagree

28 May 2017 17:20:12
Vellios did ok when given a chance, he was the only one with occasional flashes from peirra.
It needs to be a team effort, managers nowadays don't always pick and get who they want, not saying it's right,
but owners of a lot of clubs buy the players and tell the manager to coach them.

Agree1 0Disagree

28 May 2017 23:01:55
Your facts are wrong, he scored 10 goals in 46 apperances last season.
Take a look at the you tube he looks usefull.
Probably more in this rumour than most of the other deadbeats that's been posted.

Agree2 1Disagree

29 May 2017 07:02:05
Look at YouTube? I know I will go out and play a few games for a Sunday league team and get it filmed but I will only show the best bits as it will make me look a good player. silenzi has a video on there and even he looks good. lol.
My stats wernt wrong to be fair because I said in a poor league which the stat was for last season league campaign, his overall stats for last season were 8 in 43 games. hardly a world beater in a very poor league.
Your stats are wrong as you took them from wiki and combined last season with the season before. ; )

Agree0 4Disagree

29 May 2017 17:52:12
Makes sense to me this lad coming to forest, got couple years left on his contract at olympiacos so they can see if he progresses here, think he would he would be a good loan acquisition could be impact player of the bench and push caryol/ ward for there places.

Agree2 0Disagree

29 May 2017 18:53:34
Have you actually seen him play to make that judgment?

Agree0 2Disagree

29 May 2017 20:16:36
UTF you're sounding like a broken record mate. It's rare for any fan of any club to have actually watched a lower profile foreign player before they arrive in England.

All we can do is make assumptions based on the information we have. No one here has said because he's got a decent video that he'll be an instant success . I don't understand the point you're continuing to reiterate.?

Agree1 0Disagree

29 May 2017 20:50:47
One has said that he looks good on the video and said on this evidence he would bring him in.
All I'm saying is how much influence has the Greek got on who comes in? he's already given us vellios.

Agree0 0Disagree

29 May 2017 22:10:14
Sounds like you don't like or trust markinasis?
My assumption would be that there is a set budget on bringing players in and MW will go to the board with his wish list to be okayed.
But he did say they are football people with lots of contacts throughout europe. so it would make perfect sense to make use of these contacts.

Agree0 0Disagree

29 May 2017 22:53:00
Vellios isn't a bad player at all though? He's second fiddle to Assombalonga, who when fit, is one of the best strikers in the league.

With the limited appearances he's had, he's got goals. He was a massive upgrade on Blackstock whichever way you look at it.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2017 20:41:29
Forest linked with Arsenal's young Polish defender Kristian Bielik.

Made 10 appearances at the end of last season on loan at Birmingham City and Arsenal will be looking to loan him out again next season for some first-team exposure.

Believable3 6Unbelievable

24 May 2017 20:48:59
I am sure he would be an asset but we cannot play 2 20 year olds together at centre back if we are to challenge? He can play as a holding midfielder as well so that might be an option if he has the legs?

Agree2 0Disagree

24 May 2017 20:54:31
Same site is linking us with an assortment of poor players.
Hope they are wrong, joe garner another one, please no;

Agree5 0Disagree

24 May 2017 22:58:33
Not sure we need any more strikers but Garners all action, tough style of play could give us something different and prove a good foil for our less physical players, no defenders like to play against this type of dog with a bone never say die attitude .
Wouldn, t pay a lot for him or pay him a fortune but at the right price could be someone who, d respond to the current management.

Agree2 8Disagree

24 May 2017 23:25:28
Paid a million last time and he gets booked more than he scores .
All action and no quality
Scored most of his goals for carlisle and preston at league one and two level.
Thats his level.

Agree5 3Disagree

25 May 2017 15:14:49
Correct mate. We cannot afford to get it wrong this time round, reckon we need a proven Championship, no nonsense, CB, a bit of bite in midfield, we haven't anyone in those positions that makes the opposing side think twice about taking us on.

Agree4 0Disagree

25 May 2017 15:47:56
Thing is rogie, we need players who can improve the squad and are better than we have.
I see nothing in Garner, Waghorn, Tavanier and Mckay that would improve us and none of them are good enough to hold down a regular place.
Need some midfielders and couple defenders that's all, no more strikers.

Agree4 1Disagree

25 May 2017 18:51:53
Agreed mate. Don't think we're that far away. Bit of self belief, i.e. Ipswich game, and who knows where it can take us. 🤔🤔🤔.

Agree2 0Disagree

25 May 2017 19:47:08
If you see nothing in Garner then where does that leave Jamie Ward who did so much in the Ipswich game, very similar two players, always in your face .

Agree1 5Disagree

25 May 2017 20:17:05
Garner has been tried at this level twice and failed miserably.
Hardley scored for us and only managed 6 goals for preston in the championship before rangers paid 1.8 million for him, where he's scored 7 in Mickey mouse football.
His goals come at league 1 level.
Wardy has a bit more about him.

Agree2 0Disagree

25 May 2017 20:23:34
Garner is not as versatile as Ward and has not cut it in the Championship. Wardy all day long for me.

Garner would do a fantastic job at The Pies!

Agree2 0Disagree

26 May 2017 06:19:05
If ya want and ex forest player who can get in your face and put the effort and score only a few goals why don't we get simon cox back Carlo?
Fact is both aren't good enough for this league that we aren't in and they would be reserve players at best. ward is also far better than garner.
If we start buying some of the player from rangers then next season will be a bigger struggle than last.

Agree3 0Disagree

26 May 2017 09:52:10
I'd have a punt bringing Dawson back, experienced in this league and solid.

24 May 2017 21:21:51
Sounds like you want to CASH OUT.
Hell come good, been messed about in a variety of positions, need to settle him down to one in the centre, got a good engine and physique for that.
Been a tough season for him to make that breakthrough and he's handled it well.

Burnley to visit the City Ground on July 29, do we have stadium tours that day.

That should be a good workout for the lads ready for the new season. L.

Believable4 2Unbelievable

19 May 2017 22:54:10
I wonder if there's a subliminal message to fans in arranging the Burnley friendly ie look what a small club with an ancient ground, a capacity of 20,000 and a tiny budget can achieve? Oh and a bit of continuity and faith in a good youngish manager (even though as a player Cloughie said he couldn't trap a bag of wet sand)!

Agree2 1Disagree

20 May 2017 00:40:49
Just a good benchmark test of a newly promoted Premiership team?
Or maybe just dropping off the eye prescription for Boyd?

20 May 2017 06:22:17
I think Mr Clough said Gary Megson could not trap a bag of sand.

jeez lowly burnley. my wife will be happy to see them thrash forest no doubt. being as shes from burnley. hope forest can at least put on a show. better than any they put on last season.

Agree0 2Disagree

20 May 2017 11:39:02

Burnley are organised and hard working, they are the type of team we struggled against last season therefore much more of a test than facing a footballing side that we were competitive against last season.

Warburton needs to test the players, you need to win your last few pre-season friendlies to boot confidence, but in the early games need to challenge the players to know what change ready for the new season.

Agree4 0Disagree

20 May 2017 18:18:33
Why should we get thrashed BILDREDD even Lincoln City from the National League beat them on their own ground!

Agree0 0Disagree

20 May 2017 21:06:08
Megson got his own back for that coment, those bags of sand weighed us down league when he was manager.
Worst manager we've ever had and the most boring to watch and listen to.
I remember his first game in charge at home and he played garath taylor our striker at centre half, what a joke.
Cloughie got rid of him after amonth as a player? pity doughty didn't as a manager.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 May 2017 09:27:05
Last season Lincoln City would have thrashed us! let's hope we are going to be a team that can deal with all different styles of playing because to be successful that is fundamental, no good being good against footballing sides, you've got to play them all, long ball included!

Agree1 1Disagree

21 May 2017 10:53:25

That is so true, and is why it is important to play against some teams in pre-season that play the different styles we struggle against normally.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 May 2017 15:17:28
We are supposed to be interested in a midfielder from Harrow Borough called Kurtis Cumberbatch, could he be a player to solve the problem of unlocking opposition defences.

20 May 2017 00:50:02

It is the way the club should have gone years ago.

Buying proven Championship players has not worked, but has landed the club with huge debts.

Off course some are going to fail, but it is a less expensive failure than the likes of Jamie Mackie and so many other expensive failures.

The trouble with our fanbase is it wants everything now rather than wait for a decent manager to build a good side from lower division players that build up an understanding.

So many of our fanbase lose patience once the team lose three or four games, or putsl in a few bad performances.

Agree1 1Disagree

20 May 2017 08:31:36
