Hello Forest fans, Southampton fan here.

I have been in contact with an Italian friend of mine and while I did get some information on a deal relating to my club, he also gave me some information on a potential deal which Forest have been trying to pull off for this summer.

Keita Bald� has been looked into by Forest as an option for the summer and Lazio are willing to send the player out on loan if they succeed in a transfer target of their own. If they do manage to get their man then Bald� may join Forest on loan initially with a potential for a permanent deal if Forest were to gain promotion with a pre-agreed fee (unfortunately I have no value to go on for the potential transfer fee).

I hope this interests you all and wish you the best of luck for next season (and for the small remainder of this season, play offs are still a possibility).

I saw Gary Brazil today at Watford gap services on the m1 and was speaking to him about our chances of getting in the playoffs he really believes we can still make it. He also told me that both darlow and de vries are struggling with the injuries and is expecting evtimov to start in goal Saturday. He also told me that Matt Derbyshire will sign a new contract soon.

Whilst I do not doubt Evtimov's ability, I really hope that our senior goalkeepers can recover in time for the final two games; I fear the pressure of the occasion may well get to the young Belgian.

Talking of injuries I can find no word of why Lansbury, Wilson or Fox did not play last game and what's the latest on Lichaj his hernia is taking ages to heal. Let's hope Reading slip up against Leicester on the last game so it's a dramatic last day.

Indeed Dimi is Bulgarian. As for Watford Gap he was helping his old mate McGugan find his way back from Burger King at the services there. Maybe Gary Brazil has relatives down south and was visiting them.

Be a good move if true, very good technical coaching in Holland, might give us an extra dimension regards to tactics, rather than the old regime of pushing players where they break down too easy from overtraining. Hope it's true.

Not sure about this since Pearce called him Lazy when was in the Caretaker role here last. BR may have accepted it and moved on but not sure he would be willing to leave Ajax.

I agree with PK1 re. Training regime bad luck is 2-3 first team players out long term but 7-8! Something not right. Was very impressed with mclaughlin and osborn against Leeds great to have young players with something to prove be given a chance. Hart credits Pearce a lot for his career, hopefully he can get the best out of young talent we have. That's joe hart not paul hart.

Looks like a FK specialist, scored a hell of a lot of goals from them.

On FA website, Blackstock has been charged with "multiple breaches" of gambling rules. If he's found guilty, what is the penalty, fines, ban? Can the club use this as gross misconduct and terminate his contract? Maybe this is the end of his time with us, if he's found guilty.

If found guilty. 100% yes, I am VP for HR so will put my name to it!

JVREDDOG

If he is guilty and I do say if, then I hope they throw the book at him. He knows it's against the rules and the punishment would be severe but still chose to do it. Rules are there for a reason, to be followed not ignored so he has only himself to blame if the club kick him out and the FA hit him with a huge fine and suspension.

But there's clear rules on players betting on football matches and if there not enforced it will send out the wrong message to other players. he knew the risks now he must take his punishment, as the saying goes if you pray for rain you have to put up with the mud

Poor Dexter. Sat at home, probably bored and cheesed off with his injury. Worried about the future. I know, I'll put a few quid on this weekends games to relieve the boredom. No one will ever know. He knew the rules, he'll take the consequences. Very sad.

On Forest strikers, when someone leaves the club, they normally get a run in a side. holt, Lester etc where as we chop and change, a settled front two and maybe we would get those stats of 20 goal a season etc. I give you saunders/cambell - collymore/Roy see my point! Thought MD was superb yesterday!

JVREDDOG

(1)
(0)

It's a nonsense to offer the guy an extension based on 4 games. It would have been difficult to miss 3 of those goals. The best we've got is still not good enough - the hunt for a 20-a-season man must go on.

Mig66

(1)
(5)

MIGG

I am not saying we don't need one, my point is we need to settle on a front two and give them a run of at least 5-10 games. Forest have not named a settled strikeforce all year. Tuds, Miller, Derbyshire, Cox, Dejebour, Henderson. maybe blackstock/abdoun also? none of them apart from cox given a sustained run!

JVREDDOG

(1)
(0)

Mig, how on earth can u suggest that those two yesterday were straight forward goals. That is just nonsense mate. They were absolutely fantastic composed finishes. Whilst four games doesn't make a great striker the all round performances he has put are best from a centre forward this season without doubt. And to be fair to him, when given a run pre-season he did the business and he has again the last few games. I think a 12 month extension would be well earned

Keeno

(0)
(0)

Agree with Keeno, 12 month contract would be justifiable given his record when he's played this year. forest shouldn't do what they did with blackstock and offer 4 1/2 years, ridiculous.

jw398

(0)

Migg we can't exactly offer him a new contract based on a run of more than 4 games because he has not had a run longer than that to show what he can do. And as for the easy finishes I guess you have to be in the right place at the right time to finish them.

Pearce at Peterborough game today. I bet he was looking at Assombalonga or Tommy Rowe. Assombalonga would be pricey but has some pace, strength and knows where the net is.

Sitting on the bench not getting a chance under billy just shows what happens to a striker when they are giving some backing even when they don't score well done matty. Also osborn looks like a bit of talent COYR.

Matt Derbyshire on his own won't fire us into the Prem. We need at least one and probably two new strikers. Creating a striking partnership is a must. Think Ings and Vokes, Collymore and Roy etc. Derbshire and Wilson or Assombalonga could be good partnerships.

Matt Derbyshire has proved many critics wrong including myself. I hope SP keeps him. But we still need 2 more strikers and offload Cox and Henderson

I remember a similar situation with blackstock under o Driscoll. Came in scored a few goals, we went mad and fawaz gave him a bumper 4 year deal and then he was rubbish again. agree to him getting a new deal but nothing crazy, still has to prove consistency and not just in a handful of games

Stuart Pearce was at Sixfields to watch Callum Wilson against Swindon on Saturday, Reported in the Coventry Telegraph. Wolves showing interest too. Would add a bit of pace and directness to our attack. Wolves supposedly offering £3M which sounds a bit steep.

Trickie Trees

Hope we get him.

I also rate Troy Deeney at Watford - he has the best goals to games ratio in the championship and with Pato at Walsall.

willow I rate deeney I've seen him a few times as I live in wealdstone which is 4 miles from watford and friends are watford supporters so I get to a few of there games but jordon rhodes has a much better record than deeney. rhodes has 51 in 84 championship games and deeney has 53 in 160 odd games so rhodes record is much better but he would cost more.

Beg to differ daybrook red zaha would be quite a coup. He's definitely better than what we have, seeing as we have no natural wingers other than abdoun ATM.

We looked in control with him on the pitch. You could see the difference when he went off after 55 minutes.

Vaughan was solid and created chances for others as well as himself. Awesome signing

I was dragged to the Coventry game yesterday with a Coventry mad friend. We sat right in front of Stuart Pearce and his wife.
We couldn't resist talking to him after the game. My mate dived straight in and asked I why he was there?
He said he was checking out Leon Clarke.

i would like to put on record, I think Stuart Pearce is going to turn out to be the best bit of business we have done in years.
Welcome back Stuart.

First things first - sp has left his wife but he is with someone else so in this guys defence who knows who he was with.

That's if he was there.

I would still like to see him have a run out in team all the talk about having no strikers all year is a massive confidence knock for the strikers we have.

Tap/ willow- how can you say that?! fact is you don't know, none of us do. billy petulantly left him out week after week even though we couldn't (can't?) score for toffee!
he'll get a run no doubt n when he does i for one would like to see him smash um in.
why not play him? he literally can't be any worse than what we've got.
i didn't see coxy or mackie score at the training sesh the other day we saw djebbour score tho. can't remember if hendo scored so obv not as i recall!
djebbour was sound with us fans too. so how's he terrible? how should we hope we've wasted about 2 mill? how's it good for us when we need quality, depth, experience which he has.
like i say nobody knows, really, what he offers and if he'd do well for us. i'd play him for every match for the whole of brazil's short reign if i was him i really think brazil has missed a trick - nowt to lose, imagine if dhebbour reacted well he could've fired us to the play offs again instead we go with the same three or four that have had to rely on the midfielders to score all season?!
yes i know that mackie and cox graft and they're good 'honest' footlballers
thing is all season i've shouted at the first xi to "just put it in the onion bag" fact remains i've seen djebbour 'in the flesh' twice this season and twice he's put it in the onion bag!
we have nothing to lose nothing give him a shot! if he doesn't score? so what i'd put my mortgage on cox, hendo or mackie not having scired either!

Fully agree with the above post. He's not been given a chance. Does anyone know why he's out of favour? BD didn't play him because he was disruptive apparently. Was that the real reason? Anyone throw any light on it?

I agree with the above posts, the guy at least deserves a chance. Sorry, but the rest of our strikers are just not doing it. Do not know why GB has not taken the opportunity to play him, instead of the usual rubbish we have been playing upfront week in week out.

Majewski? You having a laugh or you must be being sarcastic? I'd say he's crap but he's not even that good! Worst under performer and biggest let down of the season. Keep Peltier in-he ain't doing bad and with reference to the above post who needs to register-I'm all for giving Djebbour a chance up front if he could find the onion bag and I'd love him to be a success but as yet he's not done much to impress but given a run in the team then who knows. Would be great to see the bearded magician supplying the bullets bcus Djebbour and Abdoun were brill together at Olympiacos. Cox and Hendo have had enough chances to shine but keep fluffing their lines so a change could and would be good.

Radi had been crap all season but we all know he has the ability, that is the frustrating thing. I like the team jay is suggesting. Peltiet has not done much wrpng since he joinef but he ain't a match winner. Maybe just maybe its radi's time to shine with vaghan lansbury and reid back.

I think there is proof Billy had a problem with him because he played a defender up front rather then strikers. Yes he scored 3 goals but not giving one of the strikers a run is ridiculous. All those that say great servant etc. Are missing the point it was Billy being petulant playing him.

I don't get how some of you on here can slate the bloke that he's no good that when he plays he doesn't get the ball passed to him. The few times I have seen him play he's been making dangerous run around the box and getting into good positions but not getting the ball. The guy needs a chance to show his quality he's only played what 6-7 games and which most of are 10min sub appearances! He needs time to settle same as abdoun and they'll come good with a pre season under their belts!

I quite agree that the terrorist has not had the opportunity to shine - 10 minutes here and there is not enough to prove your ability. Look at Derbyshire - given an opportunity to play he is putting the ball in the bag when given to him, like he did pre-season so the question should be why did BD not continue with Dernyshire when the league started? BD was to blame - to me he has always been the nearly man with an ego bigger than the club. Good riddance I say and thank you for not getting us promoted again!

Too early to write him off. He's not had any kind of run in the team.

Coming to a new country in the middle of the season has got to be tough. Let's see how he does next year with a full pre-season.

And what's the evidence for this poor attitude?

goosehonk

I don't think we can judge him on what we've seen so far on the pitch. The reference to poor attitude alluded to by GB is more concerning but under Psycho's tutelage, he could become a star. Let's give him a chance to adjust before we write him off.

Red Diva

(0)

The few times I've when he's played and I've seen him he's been making runs and trying to get into dangerous positions. He's pulled the opposition defence about too. Cox on the other hand works hard, but always seems on a hiding to nothing; when a decent ball comes over he is consistently out of position. Djebbour and Derbyshire need a chance.

Tdv

(0)

There would be no point in getting rid of him in the summer. He deserves a chance. Let's see what a full pre-season does for him and hopefully SP can get him firing. Cox, Hendo and Co. on the other hand have had ample opportunity and need to be moved on.

GazzaRed

Djebour was mentioned today in the post it looks likely that he won't be staying (looks like original poster is correct in that he is actually on loan with an option to buy) and its also likely that Adoun will be moved on to free up wages for SP to bring his own players in.

Annoys me so much when people claim McGugan's lazy. Hoddle was lazy, as was Le Tissier - both of them were match winners though, as is Lewis at this level. I saw a stat, if you took away his goals for us last year, we'd have been 19th I think. Give me him over the useless '100%' players like Majewski who digs holes and hide in them for 90 mins. Sorry Ed haven't signed up yet, will get round to it soon

On the flip side, its no good running round and tracking back giving 100% if you havn't got any quality to go with it.

{Ed034's Note - mcgugen was average with his distribution of the ball, very rarely created anything and was lazy. the reason most fans don't see this is it is masked by the odd great goal.

I have said for months that Tudguy should at least have a chance. You can talk about work rate all you like but strikers have to at least shoot at the target before they can score. Look at the stats at shots on target and then look at how many of them came from out so called strikers. We have a very talented team when fit and play some attractive football but it's the end result that counts. I don't care who we get but we need a couple of strikers with the ability to run at defenders and get the shots away. We also only have Reidy and Lansbury prepared to try the odd shot from range. Is it the style we have been playing or the fact that players like Cox and Derbyshire just are not good enough.

Jamaal Lascelles could be heading to Manchester United in the summer, looking for a young centre half to replace Vidic and isn't confident of game time next season with Wilson and Hobbs fit.

Stuart Pearce does not believe the squad needs radical changes and intends to offer Jara and Derbyshire new contracts.
He's been quoted as saying that he isn't one for spending vasts amount of money on players and would prefer to bring players through the academy.

Wants to make one signing of 'intent' believed to be Jack Rodwell from Man City but only if Lascelles is sold.

I'd like to see Jara offered a new deal, I think he's a good, versatile member of the squad. Derbyshire can take a hike though.

I would agree that not much is needed to be added in the Summer. Maybe a couple of new faces at most. I think the important thing will be trimming off some of the deadwood, keeping hold of Lansbury and keeping everyone fit!

Best laugh I've had on this site for ages. If Moyes thinks Lascelles could replace Vidic at MU, cash in now. And as for dismissing Wilson when he's only played a couple of times. Wilson and Hobbs are THE cb's -Jamaal is good as cover but still has a lot to learn, as you would expect for a lad of his age.

Jara has been shocking since the turn of the year. I will drive Derbyshire anywhere he wants as long as it is nowhere near the City Ground.

And Lascelles ain't ready for Prem 1st team football, never mind challenging for a Champ League spot (cue Moyes jokes)

There is no way Lascelles will get regular football at MU or any other Premier side. He might as well stay at Forest and learn his trade under Psycho.

Hope that Pearce will off load some of the deadwood, I'm thinking of players like Collins, Harding, Gillett, Miller, Moussi,, Halford, Derbyshire, maybe even Cox!

If we learn anything from this season is that we need 4 quality centre backs but think Lascelles would benefit with having a loan spell at a struggling club rather than Man Utd. SP might not be planning a massive change in the summer but that might change between 1st July and 31st August once he has worked with players.

After watching the game against QPR, what stood out for me, aside from our defence not closing down quick enough, was that we need a winger or two with dribbling ability like Fester have. Paterson is a major threat because he can beat opposition players, Mackie and Cox can't dribble and as a consequence we created nothing from the flanks. Also we are screaming out for a quality goalscorer still! I don't think we are far away from being title contenders once we get our injured defence and midfield back in place. Lascelles still has much to learn but will get better, Darlow is essential to our future success. With a little improvement here and there in vital areas we can be a real force next season I truly believe that!

Forest Dane I notice that Greening, Henderson, Tudagy and Majewski missed your cull, are these also not players who have under-performed during their time at Forest. More importantly why are we not giving some of the youngsters a blast like McLoughlin as we are not going to make the playoffs and would be a good opportunity to see how they fair? At least the passion and commitment would be there. Back to my box in the muppet theatre (aka main stand)

Can't say his heart isn't in it. He's been conceding a lot of goals of late but that's down to the players not closing down. The defence is making his job a whole lot harder

(9)
(0)

Don't think we will miss him at all. Not good enough in my opinion

(5)
(13)

Really! Confidence is low throughout and our defence has been shocking. Karl's first full season and he has been excellent. Only 12 games ago we had only lost 4 and had one of the best defensive records in the league. Top premiership clubs will come calling in the summer, we will do well to keep him. If he leaves he'll be warming a bench or loaned straight back out.

(5)
(1)

Think his head might have got turned a little along with lascelles in January with talk of a move. Performances have been poor of late by the whole team but earlier on in the season they were the 2 outstanding performers game after game. I suppose it doesn't help when confidence is low

(4)
(0)

Darlow been one of the most consistent players all season. The post saying he's not good enough you either have not watched him for the last 12 months or you been drinking. You build from the back next year and his names first on the sheet.

{Ed034's Note - I fount it crazy too. The guy is in his first full season and has lots of top flight clubs interested in him.

How the mighty fall. From challenging for an automatic place to just about the bottom half of the table since January. This lot are a complete shambles. No heart, no spirit, no idea, no right to wear the shirt.
Hurry up and get here Psycho we need a clear out at the end of the season. No way can some of the present squad retain their place for next season.
If they do then season tickets will fall.

he is the best player for forest by far its the defense iv any goalkeeper even the best in the world had bad defense then they will keep picking the ball out the net I hope he stays then psycho sorts the defense out so we can sow why it took a few games to just concede a goal this season

Too many Xbox fans on this site.
Darlow is top drawer but its a team game!

He is quality but does have a weakness low to his right, look at the goals conceded this year and you will see. We could do with keeping him but he's no irrecplaceble

He can go. You can tell his mind is on a big move.

Come on, get real!
Have you seen how Forest are defending these days? No goalie would look great with that poor rack of players in front of him!
The biggest problem is the lack of quality players after all the injuries and that there are no heart and soul, no pride in wearing the beautiful red shirt!

If you can get 10M for him, and 10M for Laselles I would sell both. 20M at this level is not to be scoffed at. Before any one seats we need them for the future, we are along way away from The Premership at the moment, this money will help withh FFP and support SP to buy.

{Ed034's Note - no chance of those figures.

(0)
(0)

Totally agree Ed, if someone offered us £10m for Darlow and Lascelles we should snap their hand off.

Before any "Champ Manager" crew start, let's calm it down. Two youngsters with great potential, but untried and not currently showing world beating consistency. Very much lacking in experience. Why would a Prem team offer big bucks for such a risk?

Struggling again on some of these posts on Darlow. The lads first class for a young keeper. The post he's got a weakness to his right is a joke. The only weakness to his right has been his right back. This lad has the lot, he's still learning his trade but he will be if he continues at this rate one of the best English keepers in the game. He's not irreplaceable no player is but when you have found quality you don't want to lose it.

(2)
(3)

16M for the pair would be good. What's the price, 20M was being quoted earliest in the season ( by their agents) got them selfs new big boy contracts from Fawaz. Get shot if teams want them. Patterson I would never sell by the way, he is good, not just thinks he's good.

There is a saying in football

"Your keeper is only good as your defence"

And our defence is pants without Cohen and Hobbs in it

Since Hobbs has been injured we have conceded 31 goals in 13 games with only 1 clean sheet

Are you guys serious. I hate "fans" who are like this. the same fans singing BD praises were the same asking for his sacking matter of weeks later.
the same fans bigging us up for automatic promotion are the same ones saying well be lucky if we make top half. now the same people who were saying how amazing darlow is are now saying let his go he's rubbish. get a grip and make your mind up

(5)
(1)

If the Reds do sell Darlow and Lascelles, I hope they do more with the money than they did after selling Reid and Dawson.
But as we are nearing what has been a disastrous end to what could have been a good season I hope we can hang on to our good young players. I don't want us to be a club who continually sells of its future.
Sell the dead wood instead. because we have enough to grow make a Forest.

(2)
(0)

If you look at the defence today, biggest problem was defensive midfield, counter attacks from QPR were too easy for them, just waltzed through us, players seem under pressure to push forward and then leave massive gaps. Halford struggled today, and it seemed like nobody wanted to tackle. It's a shame how it's panned out, but you can't expect to win if the basics aren't there. I hope it all settles down in summer and we can go again with a more steady ship.

I don't think he is good enough for the prem yet so don't know who he will go to. makes to many mistakes with decision making and coming off his line, but a great shot stopper

We all want to leave after today but I feel sure that Darlow is a red like me so is tied for life -well in his case a season or two more at least. Leave him alone with your not good enough rubbish. The line in front of him isn't good enough.

If darlow wants to leave let's cash in on him I heard that the young Bulgarian goalkeeper is ment to be amazing. What do you think ed?

red or dead

{Ed034's Note - if he wants to leave, then sell to the highest bidder.

Do not sell darlow, build from the back, sell the deadwood and free up the wages, get rid of harding, halford, majewski, tudgay, miller, henderson, cox, moussi and replace with vaughan and a decent striker.

{Ed034's Note - and if he hands in a transfer and we get offered big money???

Fed up of trying to fit square pegs in round holes just so we can play this 4 2 3 1 formation it doesn't work we don't have the holding midfielders to do it or a striker who is that good to score a hatful if goals and bring other players into the game

(1)
(0)

Can't see Darlow leaving.

Pearce will want to build from he back and Darlow is the best we have (Devrise looked very shaky against Sheffield Utd) right now.

His confidence has been knocked by the poor quality defending in front of him. Look at how often he now passes out from the back versus just hoofing it up the pitch compared to the start of the season.

Come next season I see him still being ou first choice in goal

FleetRed

You couldn't blame Darlow for wanting out; he's a gifted, developing player who's already catching people's eye at a high level and he's currently backstopping an unmotivated, low-achieving team against a highly chaotic club backdrop and any serious knock to his confidence could easily stall his ongoing development. Some at Forest (I suspect mainly parts of the fan base rather than the team) may draw hope and inspiration from the changes coming in in the summer but you could forgive younger players for not having especially high hopes for their future at the club.

Good, he looked a second rate keeper on Saturday! we need a more experienced keeper, who can sort defence out as well.

Jeez - nothing wrong with Darlow. Our midfield and defence have been weak for some time due to masses of injuries. Esp at full back and Def Mid. This is why we lose. Darlow can't help the majority of what's been happening

And if Darlow did hand a request and we get offered silly money. Say NO. Worked for Liverpool.

(0)
(0)

That's funny, because I'm sure if he wanted to leave he could have left in January when Spurs offered £4m?

(0)
(0)

I think should keep Darlow, he is a potential top goalie, he is young and will make mistake (even Hart does) however I feel with Lascelles too much inexperience in the heart of the defence is causing problems. I rather Lascelles goes out on loan to some one like Doncaster/Charlton for a season to give him more experience. Yesterday proved we have no leaders in the team that will drive them on. I'm sure Darlow would love to play in Premiership but I think he is also realistic that not going to be number 1 keep for the teams linked with him and will either be on bench or sent out on loan which is no good for a keeper.

(0)
(1)

I don't believe either Fawaz or Psycho will want to part with any of the promising young players. They are our future. Fawaz doesn't need to sell to raise funds for new players.
It's the poor players, I fear they will have a job unloading.

Both Darlow and Lacelles are definitely destined for greater things but to firstly assume they are worth millions is pure lunacy at best they are collectively worth only around 5million plus future addons for the pair. It has been evident during this awful run that both are miles from the finished article, both player have shown inexperience in bucket loads and both I feel would benefit greatly from a season of further coaching under the new coaching set up and then if SP does as well as we all desperately hope then they
can ply their trade at the top level a year from now

Redbaz

{Ed034's Note - we've turned a bid of around £4m for Darlow down already, so you are saying lascelles is worth £1m

(0)
(0)

Both Darlow and lascelles are very naive and inexperienced. As soon as other clubs were mentioned being interested, their form dipped. Lascelles was tweeting about how much he was worth. Regardless of what he thought he was worth, he needs to learn to keep his mouth shut because, since Hobbs stopped holding his hand, he's looked totally lost! Glad there's only a few games left because the way he's been going he'll be worth a fiver if his form continues! Both need to lose the ego and prove their real worth and not just their potential!

(2)
(0)

I think that the past two months are a learning curve for the players and the owner just how fine the margins are in football, I hope the young players go on to gain the experience here at Forest, I don't think there is loads wrong, bit of confidence building, settled team would help. Injury list this year was impossible for any manager, but that is how it is. I hope Pearce gets the targets he wants, I think next season or the one after will see us go up, we just have to have patience and enthusiasm as fans

He's a young lad with a lot of potential which he has shown numerous times this season. If your defence and midfield have more holes than a proverbial sieve it matters not how well you command your area as there is no one there to command (as seen numerous times in the last 13 games). Give him a break he is learning and am sure that he will be a quality keeper maybe world class in the right environment - as mentioned above a lot of dead wood in front of Darlow once he has a defence we can see how good he really is and then we can critique his abilities then. On another note Dimi Evtimov is another quality shot stopper but with the same clowns in front of him would not have saved forest from the dismal run of results.

{Ed034's Note - it is also his first season and I think people are forgetting that. his has had the odd average game but for the season as a whole, he has been fantastic and will only get better

(0)

It is time to give Darlow a rest. After the result on Saturday and the number of goals that have been conceded it was only a matter of time before questions of darlows ability were going to arise. His confidence must be on the floor at the moment.

(0)
(0)

No wonder he is losing confidence with all these whingers going on about him losing it! He is young and inexperienced but up to a few games ago he hardly put a foot ( or hand) wrong. He's generally been brilliant since he stepped into Camp's boots last season so stop being so negative and tell him we appreciate him and want him to stay!

Darlow looks good with Hobbs infront of him.

Every keeper needs to have confidence in his defenders!

Both Darlow and Lascelles a blossom with Hobbs.

Darlow has made a lot of mistakes recently, and confidence works both ways. If the defenders aren't confident in the keeper they will drop deeper. We've played half the year with 2 defensive midfielders for goodness sake, and he's still shipping them. Lascelles has been poor recently too, but they are both young enough to come back next year better players. There is no chance any team, premier or not, would risk a seven figure sum on either player at the moment, so it's not going to be a problem holding on to them. Lansbury is a different matter altogether.

It's all going to be fine. We can put the ever versatile Halford between the sticks where no-one would ever expect him to make a tackle.

Yes the only problem with Halford in goal would be he wouldn't find a Forest player when he passed it out.
