Looked a different side with him in front of the back. Just that bit of experience and positional awareness. No coincidence back four looked more solid with him in front

We looked in control with him on the pitch. You could see the difference when he went off after 55 minutes. I think Greening deserves credit for the way he has played over the last few weeks but when he replaced Vaughan we became defensive. 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.

Correct me if iam wrong but hasn't SP split up with his wife, and I doubt he would identify the player to you he was looking at.

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.

Secondly I do know that Callum Wilson is a highly regarded striker at Coventry by most clubs and must. would be on sp's radar.

That's if he was there.

Willow

{Ed034's Note - the guy said Leon Clarke

(0)

Willow the guy has come out with a pack of lies firstly the player he mentioned doesn't even play for the club anymore he now plays for wolves secondly he said that SP told him he was there to watch a specific player and then told him who it was. the op has made himself look a but of a doughnut, you are trying to defend the indefensible mate.

I got excited reading this rumour thinking maybe he was looking at Callum Wilson and then they through the Leon Clarke bit in there and ruined it all. How could you?! Not a rumour but would you take Bamford back on loan?

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. Look at Chelsea, they have Torres who they paid 50 million ish for and by all accounts when confident he is world class but he's done nothing because. Of confidence.

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?

While I agree with notts loyal I have to piont out one thing I've been telling everbody for at least a month. most of the signings Fawaz hs made this season have bee loans with a view to permanent. and Rafiq falls into this catergory.

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 will judge Rafik when he misses the sitters that Cox and co have missed week after week. I've not seen enough of him yet and I can't recall him even having half a chance at goal yet, apart from the goal he got.

Andyhooligan

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.

Panglos

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!

Anything that would have been on the internet during the few weeks you were without access should still be on the internet now.

Djebbour may want away due to no PL football next season but I don't see such a convoluted contract or agreement being put in place to sign him.

I think Djebbour will come good next season, if he's about.

He must of had half a dozen touches all season. We haven't seen anything of him yet. Certainly too early to judge him. Can't for the life of me figure out why they bought him if he's not going to get any game time. If he's fit let him start in the last four games. Let's have a look at him, can't do any worse than cox

He had plenty of touches yesterday and still managed to give the ball away more than any other player at training. Convinced he's not the answer but I hope he proves me wrong.

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

(4)
(0)

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

(4)
(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

(3)
(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

(0)

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.

I think Samaras is SP's first choice target in the summer. I think he'd do well in the championship but he isn;t getting any younger.

GazzaRed

{Ed034's Note - why do you think this gazza??

(0)

A lot has been mentioned about his interest in samaras on the bird site and I believe he worked with him when he managed Man City so already knows what he's all about. His goal ratio for Celtic isn't too bad, 1 in 3.

GazzaRed

{Ed034's Note - I fount it funny that the day after pearce signs, the usual outlets were linking him to samaras. its funny how they always feel the need to link a player, but I imagine it would have been difficult with pearce as its been a while since he last managed a club.
the celtic ed on here has said he is very lazy and says we should be praying we don't get him

No he is not he likes St Albans he still lives in Ruddington but stays in St Albans I have tried to convince him to come back but for now he is There. I will keep trying though he would be ace behind a lone striker and he still gets on well with the other lads.

Fact is he would walk straight back into our midfield, which says more about Billy Davies inability to take us forward than Lewis McGugans ability.

McGugan's lazy and we are well rid of him, I wish him well at Watford but really hope we don't see him back at the CG, we have enough players on high wages who contribute very little as it is.

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

{Ed034's Note - mcgugen is not good enough to be able to be lazy, that is the problem

(0)
(0)

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.

Red Fred

{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.
im not saying at this level he doesn't do a job, but he isn't the player some fans make him out to be.

Think some fans seem to be reflecting on the past and not reading the post. He wants to come back.
I sill say he was always lazy but do recognise the good that he did.
The point is would bringing him back improve our side when we have our players back as it looks like we will?
Not a chance

Yeah he would be a good player to bring on or to use if we end up with all these injuries.

Would prefer Scott Sinclair, but both will be on to high of a salary and Rodwell is too injury prone. Can see Pearce looking at the likes of Wickham, Mancienne, Craig Dawson etc, players he has worked with before that aren't getting much game time

Behave. He'll go to Everton or another top half Prem team. And we couldn't afford his wages.

He's on about 50k a week so I very much doubt it. think Stuart Pearce is also 'hoping' Van Persie gets fed up with the moyes situation and decides linking up with pearce is probably the obvious next step in his career but that doesn't mean its going to happen.

Imo were only 2 half decent strikers from a top 2 finish next season, relied too heavily on Reidy and Pato for goals this season. Mackie works hard but no cutting edge.
Look at Burnley, take away Ings and Vokes and they would be mid table at best.

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.

(50)

So lascells not confident of game time in our team but will replace vidic and play in premiership utter twaffle

Judging by Kelvin's performance on Saturday, Jamaal need not worry about not getting sufficient game time when Hobbs is back from injury.

Hobbo

People have to remember that Wilson has not played since last October, and is by no means anywhere near match fit, imo a fully fit Wilson would not have conceded those two goals, hopefully by the start of the next season everyone will be match fit and then we will be a totally different animal

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.

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

(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.

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.

If they do then season tickets will fall.

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?

A Block Kev

(1)

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

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.

(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

(0)

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.

(0)

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!

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.

Good to see he was at the game today, as he could see who he needs to get rid off. Please sign up Lansbury now, one player we cannot afford to lose! Sorry if this has not made sense, had a few wee drams to calm the nerves after the game. Scottish Red

Chippers on the bird site has stated that he has spoken to Gary brazil and said that Wilson should be fit for Saturday but too early for Reid and vaughan

I posted earlier but it didn't get published that Reid had a fitness test today to see if he would be ok to be in the squad for Saturday, hope your right about Wilson though he is badly needed

Would have been nice to get Reid or Vaughan back. I know at various points of the season we say this is a must win game but this really is a must win game!

Too little, too late I'm afraid. Even if we win all 5 games 74 points may not be enough for play off spot this season. I said 76 points before our loss to Charlton.

You cannot take 2 points from homes games v Donny, Charlton and millwall and sheff wed and expect to make play offs.

(8)
(0)

Personally I think that the team is doing exactly what it has been told to until the end of the season, forget the playoffs. The best chance of SP rebuilding this team is in this league, it would be a huge job to rebuild the team & also plan for Premiership survival. I know it's negative but fluking the payoffs would be a disaster, I think we need to stay in this league for the greater good.

{Ed034's Note - there is no way whatsoever the team would be told that and they are playing not to get in them

We aren't going to make the Play-Offs, simple as that. I think that was quite obvious 3-4 games a go. I also think it's quite deluded, or ridiculously optimistic at very best, to still have any hope.

The bottom has fallen out, the fit players left in the first team squad haven't had the belief at all and they're not good enough in the first place. Players like Majewski, Halford, Collins, Moussi, Greening, Derbyshire etc. are no better than average Championship squad players. Majewski and Collins in particular need putting down, they're useless.

In relation to the above post Big Norm joined Barnsley GK Coach a few weeks back Wigley is Reqd along with fairclough also expecting Lansbury to sign new deal at club shortly

Chris Fairclough was part of BD's team previously, and an ex school friend of his had expected him to come back with BD, but he had got fed up with BD and is now youth devt coach at Charlton. Maybe he'd come back to work with SP? Would be a good part of the team.

I hope so re Lansbury pay him what millers on plus a bit. He's the heartbeat and future of our team along with Pato.

(3)
(0)

I agree, Lansbury is a must. I don't know if you will agree, but Paterson also plays much better (Not that he is a bad player, the opposite), when Lansbury is alongside him. We have the nucleus of a good team next season. Darlow, Lichaj, Lascelles, Hobbs, Wilson, Reid, Paterson, Lansbury, Cohen add some of the youngsters and a couple of strikers who know how to score. The Jury still out on the 2 Algerians, but give them a chance. We may not make it this season, but fingers crossed. With the above the future looks good. Oh and Vaughan would be a good permanent. Scottish Red

Wilson is a huge concern to me. He is very talented and a very good organiser at the back, but i'm worried about how many games we will actually get out of him.

Its great news that players are coming back but I can't help feeling its 4 or 5 games to late.

From reliable close of Stuart Pearce who spoke to Stuart regarding his appointment as manager of forest and who would be, his back room staff Steve wigley, des walker, mark Crosley, and this will shock a few folk and everyone will say I'm a liar but also Ryan giggs you heard here first

Yea I can really see Ryan Giggs leaving his Champions league/ Premier league, coaching all behind him to come to the City Ground. Will Rooney be following him?

Giggs has just bought Salford City FC with Scholes, Butt and Co. Why would he do that and then coach at Forest? Shocking rumour.

{Ed034's Note - as much as I don't think he will come, that is not going to stop him

(1)

Big norm has just signed as barnsleys go coach so can't see that, des walker has never coached properly at any level so can't see that. I don't think anyone believes the giggs rumour, so your down to wigley and Stuart. Keep guessing mate.

Fawaz was with his family in an executive box in the Brian Clough stand last night. As he left he signed my shirt and apologised to all the fans gathered over the recent loss of form. He then handed out replica shirts to all the kids and had photos taken with the supporters gathered. A very nice bloke who has time for people! In Fawaz I trust

Sounds plausible to me. Giggs don't get on with Moyes so it's said. So may want out of M. UTD. He could do with getting some experience to further his ambitions as a manger. So why not as no2 to Pearce. Here he might also be able to play on for another year As a Player/ass. manager. Dreaming maybe, but I hope SP uses his friendship with him to make it true :)

i would like to hear the views of other forest fans. I know like all other forest fans our strikers have let us down, plus one or two other players. we as a team can not just realy on reid, patto for the goals. what do you think of britt assombalonga, got pace and an eye for goal? if we can find two, three more young players like patto I dnt think we go far wrong.

That for me is the worry, wilson has suffered with back trouble for some time even before coming back here. hobbs was virtually written off at hull, also landsbury has history. vaughan was injured when resigned. reid was never going to play every game injured or not. cohen has had carreer threatening injuries twice. pearce has got a massive job on his hands, very, very good players when on the pitch. but our best players aren't on it enough.

(0)
(0)

I put it down to pure bad luck with injuries, any team would of struggled with the players we have sidelined, but also behind the scenes something is just not right, I. e the Algerians and Billy pressing self destruct. If you look at Leicester and Burnley for example they are unified and haven't really altered their team, big difference is that when their players were out or injured, replacements had that hunger to succeed, can't say our squad has that same hunger. In the coming months we might find what happened with Billy, but it's caused us a lot of damage which needs sorting. Still bought my season ticket though regardless, Forest is my religion and the City Ground is my church.

Rest Wilson for next season, because this season is sadly over for our part. Looked good for long, then came a lot of injuries and BD's exit, and now it's just so dreadfull to watch. Our class players have been out for long, and the rest simply don't have the class for playing in a top team in The Championship.
Our red hearts have once again been riped apart, too many years away from where we all know we belong, sad and gutted!

Getting behind our current manager and making sure we don't pass up the chance we have now of the big time. Its all "simple" psychology
If we were seventh position as a result of a surge we would be up for it; the fact that we are there on the back of a slump. We are still in the same position with quality returning to the side
Heads up; start games at high tempo and go for it
Who wants to die wondering?

While I may not agree with some of his decisions it really annoys me how people on twitter give Fawaz such abuse. He is financing a club 17 million in debt taking a risk in a project he thinks will result in success.

Exactly - people forget about the mess that the club were in prior to the takeover. Yes Forest did well and have hit a sticky patch but without the injuries would we be singing to a different tune? Consolidation and development of the squad was the idea and all the signings made so far have been positive. I have no doubts the owner will get us back to the premier league but with the best will in the world it was never going to happen over night - look at how long we haven't been in the top division will 12 months really make a difference? Top half of the table as opposed to fighting relegation is not a bad start to his ownership so all I can say is - let him do his work and support your club - if you can't do it then you need to find a new team to support.

Hearing rumours of 3 transfer targets in the summer. Only know 2 names. First will be part of a swap deal, Brentford's Adam Forshaw. Forest will offer 650k and Guy Moussi for him. They will also target Harlee Dean from Brentford. Third is a striker, not sure who it is but is said to be one of League 1's top scorers

{Ed034's Note - hope these are better than previous rumours mate lol

How can we swap moussi? He's out of contract in the summer.

Not that Brentford would even touch Moussi with a barge pole

The players I would like most to see moving on are: Moussi, Halford, Jara, Majewski, Cox Miller and Gillett. Would like to see others leave too but would be great if the above all went first.

(2)
(0)

You need atleast 2 players for each position, goal darlow and de vries, right back lichaj and jars, left back fox and Cohen, centre backs lascelles, Wilson, Hobbs, Collins, midfield lansbury, Reid, abdoun, Patterson, Osborne, Mackie, (purchase Vaughan), forwards djebbour, (purchase 2 more strikers). Everyone else can go, Cohen can also cover in midfield, the wages saved and transfer fees for a few of them will pay for Vaughan, not sure what strikers I would bring in but a lack of goals from our front men along with our injuries as cost forest this season.

(1)
(2)

I understood Vaughan was out of contract this summer

(0)
(0)

I do know that I spoke to a former stoke scout earlier in the year when there was a lot of noise about forest going in for wickham and rhodes - he suggested that forest would do better if they went for a young striker at Leyton Orient who was tearing it up. I cannot remember his name though.

hi ed. was at players dinner last night. talking to reidy says he will be back in two weeks. also asked about cox and abdoun story and eas told theplayers were shocked to read it in press andit was 100pc not true. abdoun has thigh strain and rafik can't et rid of ankle problem. a few of the players were also worried as contracts were up soon. a great night and have to give a mention to greening and derbyshire who were brilliant amd stayed to end even though. they had training on sun morning

(23)
(12)

Glad to hear Derbs enjoyed his
night out pitty he can't hit a cows
backside from 2yards. One goal
wonder. Like Cox, Mackie, Hendo
cost us the playoffs. Leaving it
to a young lad to carry the team.
Patto is top class.

You share the blame equally between the four strikers, yet Hendo & Derbys don't get a chance whilst Mackie & Cox fire blanks every week.

Not had a good striker since PVH.
Reid, Lansbury, Patterson have carried the team this season. Take them out and put the likes of Radi, Moussi, Greening etc there lies the problem. To be fair to Hendo he does well coming off the bench.

Regarding the strikers I agree with the post above. Henderson and Derbyshire haven't been given the chance of a good run of games like Cox and Mackie have.

Interesting. as I was on table with Djebbour and he said himself he was not injured. Also said Abdoun was not injured, just out of squad having fallen out with players. Suspect Reidy is towing party line while Djebbour doesn't understand the politics. Strikers need a good 5-7 games at least to find form, agree that Mackie/Cox have had their chance, time to give others a chance to prove themselves

{Ed034's Note - ive heard the complete opposite from people that were there. I find it strange that players would divulge this sort of information at such an event

Frank Wignall. wrecking ball number9. Probably would get sent off every game these days for totalling centre halves, goalkeepers; well anyone who got in his way really. but he was where he needed to be to put it in the net

If your going to mention Wignall, don't forget his partner at that time. Joe Baker, great partnership.

The last poster has hit the nail on the head were all living in the past everywhere you go in the city ground are pictures of the good old days well half the bloody crowd wasn't even born then and precious littles happened since. five year plans here and there nothing has worked for a generation. let's make our own new pictures and set new goals we need a good new coach hopefully SP and his team built to create a fresh modern dynasty and that includes hiring the best possible football CEO money can buy keeping the young guys in the present team and turf the rest of the rubbish overboard during the close season and let's not expect anything too soon it will take time to rebuild the club from top to bottom and time is something we all must give the incoming team.

(1)
(1)

Spot on mate it is going to take time and we have to be patient. We need a fresh start by outing the average players that we have in the squad ie Collins halford jara Harding cox Henderson Derbyshire. Can't fault their efforts but the bottom line is they just ain't good enough. Hopefully phsyco can bring in some fresh young talent mixed in with the experience that we already have. A natural goal scorer is a must.

(1)
(0)

Why does all of the blame fall on our strikers?

We have scored more goals than QPR who are 3rd.

We have conceded more than Charlton who are 4th from bottom.

Football is a team game, let's not blame individuals!

(1)
(1)

Yeah fair play to our strikers for letting Reid and pato score all the goals!

Three quarters of the championship have scored more than QPR! They have overcome that with a solid defence.

Nigel pearsons no1 target if we don't make the prem is Henry landsbury, I have top information on this. things could be so much harder next season. we really have to throw caution to the wind now and attack.

How do you suppose we do that mick? We are playing the only available players we have! Henri needs to be offered a big contract sooner rather than later, but if Leicester come in for him we can't stop him from going. It's what happens every year the promoted teams cherry pick all the championships best players.

Losing Lansbury during the off-season is my primary concern now. I gave up on this season a while ago. Hard to imagine some lower tier Premier League clubs not coming in for him imo, and I can't help but think his head could be turned quite easily now that he's seen how terrible we are without him. He's really got nothing left to prove at this level. It's something we're going to be sweating over the whole summer, I fear.

If Lansbury does go, and we don't bring in a seriously high quality CM to replace him, I can see Pearce's managerial career at Forest getting off to a pretty rocky start.

I heard the same rumour from a friend of mine who`s a Leicester fan. I really think we`ll struggle to hold onto him but if he does go we to make sure we have a able replacement in before we let him go.

Lansbury will be Pearce's first signing (IMO) knows him well from the 21's and name checked him last week when asked if he would be encouraging punk music in the dressing room (Pearce said "i'll ask Henri!")

Would lansbury want to join a club who will struggle most weeks lose every game and lose all your confident or stay and help build forest.

(1)
(0)

I can imagine he would have plenty of bottom feeder prem clubs after him but Pearce rates him highly and Lansbury rates Pearce, I'm sure Lansbury can be convinced to see the bigger picture that's it's only a matter of time before Forest are back in the prem no need for a short cut. With a few, an I stress only a few signings in the summer to add to an already quality squad and better luck with injuries we are title contenders no doubt. Relax Henry we will get you there and you will be out talisman :)

This happens every year, some one will come in for our best players with the promise of premier football, we did it to boro & did try to get their best player in leadbetter but he & they said no, so we the club have to make sure we keep our best players give them better deals, we have lost some world class players down the years in kean, collymore, dawson, walker, but our club is still here.

Has Pearson been given a new contract yet?

Without a huge amount of luck Fester will be obliterated next season. They are weak at the back and when pressured in the final third they look very ordinary, as we showed this season as did several other teams.
I'm not sure they have the resources or club structure to weather a tough spell in order to get established.
The Sheepskin 11 points could be under pressure.

"Would lansbury want to join a club who will struggle most weeks lose every game and lose all your confident or stay and help build forest. "

He'd rather go play for a struggling Premier League team that loses most weeks, I suspect. That's the choice most players seem to make, when confronted with this decision. If he has a good relationship with Pearce, maybe that'll help our course. Fingers crossed.

Miller has walked out on yeovil. he will NOT be back at forest & has been told by Forest he will not be using their facilities for training. this season!?! .

Good. He sounds like a complete turnip

Yep, miller is a total person. May well have kept Yeovil up and I wish them well. As far as we forest go, good riddance to a talented but lazy player.

He didn't walk. They kicked him out

{Ed034's Note - he said he didn't want to play for them anymore, stood up and walked out the room. The club maybe saying they want him back, but it was miller who walked out

Apparently its been called a serious breach of club discipline

No disrespect to Yeovil, who I like, but Miller isn't going to get signed by anyone bigger. He could well find himself in league 1 next season. Waste of a good squad number at any championship side.

Hasn't he scored more goals than any of our centre forwards though in a very short period?
Just saying!

It's a shame that Millers got such a crap attitude because he is a good player if he could sort himself out I would have him back like a shot our forward line is shocking. I hope Psycho has some funds to sort it out next season the rest of the team is very good. Will not go up this season too many players minds are on the beach! I think they have given up seems to be problems behind the scenes a team of our supposed quality should have lost as many games in a row as we have done.

He's the best striker on our books. I hope he does leave forest because what the fans give him, he doesn't deserve.

{Ed034's Note - what?? :-o

If its true who wants a player like that?

(0)

Two sides to evry story Ed. Johnson was angry because loan players (incl Miller) were going for private treatment of injuries because they have no faith in the staff at Yeovil. Johnson called a meeting & stated that those players who don't trust his staff should just fly off. a slanging match ensues & johnson rounds on Miller, if you don't want to be treated here then just go. So he did.

Oops! But I agree. He has been slated and is a liability, but he cannot do any worse than we have up front at the moment. Just think his goals could get us into the play offs and then the premier league. How everyones opinion would change. Bloody hell, I should stay off the malt. Scottish Red

Enough physique, speed and presence to be in the collymore mode, but his poor application and attitude means he will forever be firmly in the Silenzi mode.

Wilson, Landsbury & Vaughan all on the bench tomorrow.

Abdoun has been told to train with the Reserves and he refused. His days are numbered!

He thinks he's bigger than the club! Don't shoot the messenger

Got that impression just by a few things he's done and his body language. Pearce won't put up with it. Let Pearce put a tackle on him in training might change his way then

WARNING to any player who doesn't pull his weight or wants to sulk. psycho is on his way. Change your attitude or you'll be out of the door, he will not put up with it.
You are now playing for your future at Forest.

Interesting to see what Psycho does with the Algerian set up we have. he's knows Abdoun after getting him at Man City. Think they will come good. I like Abdoun.

Wouldn't suprise me given what's gone on that BD was the instigator of any team unrest. He was pretty good at splitting everyone else, why stop at the team. I was a BD supporter but nothing suprises me anymore.

(2)
(1)

Don't believe that at all. Djabbour was annoyed that against charlton as he don't get passed to, that was apparently down to language barrier. I rate abdoun and rafik. I'd like to see them play 90 mins together. If it's true that they were fawaz's signings and billy wasn't keen, maybe he but his own nose off. Could be a formidable partnership who knows

(0)
(1)

I am sorry about Abdoun. Was our most threatening player last time he started. Can't defend for toffee but that's not what he is paid to do. Don't rate Paterson as a wide player at all. Better suited to down the middle off a genuine striker.

Twf79

(1)
(2)

Like most of you lot on here, perhaps Abdoun saw himself on the net and thinks he's a lot better than he is.

I remember this place going nuts over both signings and neither have looked good enough from what we've seen so far. When you spend £3m at this level you should expect a return. Shocking signings so far, both of them.

Jus watched the first 45mins v Millwall on live stream and it's been the worst half of football I've seen from a Forest side in years. Utterly gutless first half performance. We're a club in limbo right now and it shows. Two points off the Play-Offs and we decide to write the season off by leaving an amateur in charge. Great choice.

(2)
(2)

Disagree totally, think Abdoun has quality potential and playing him one game then leaving him completely out the squad for half a dozen games will not do anything for his progress or his confidence

(3)
(0)

Here we go, let's get behind the team by insulting the caretaker manager! In fact, Wilson came on, organised, encouraged, and timed tackles and positioning like the quality cb he is. And Lansbury showed the determination and quality we've been missing in midfield. Can't wait to get Reid and Vaughan back too.

(0)
(0)

Jut got back from the match got to say first half was very poor. Much improved second half, we really were a far better team than millwall when we decided to work. Ref not the best today by a long way.

Think GB will turn the results around and listening to him on the radio on the way home does come across very well and has made some brave, good decisions in my view.

Just thought I add a comment I heard the other week from a derby fan. He said the derby game was electric and the crowd were really pumped up for it with a full house. I said you went then and he replied no but you could tell on the tv haha

Anyway not out of it yet need to play for 90 mins and we will get 6th, let's stay positive and beat Wednesday Tuesday. Youuuu Reddds

Glad to see Wilson and Lansbury get on both half fit but still better than sum of the starting 11, get this season over with and go for it next year hopefully injury free, ps even the cameraman got injured must b a forest thing lol

Today was abysmal, which reflected Brazil's team selection! Couldn't have picked a worse team!

I agree that injuries have played a big part but I still can't help but think there are serious underlying problems. We have one of the biggest wage bills in the league something milwall could only dream of at present and yet our strength in depth is shockingly poor? I think Pearce knows his first job is a big clear out?!

(1)
(0)

Totally agree with comment about writing off the season. I have said it before on here, don't get sacking Billy only to get a caretaker manager in at a key time of the season.
Supported and followed the club for over 30 years and I am as low as I have ever been with the club.
Pearcey is a club legend and rightly so but I have a feeling it will go pear shaped and to all those people who wanted a change in march?. be careful what you wish for.
Eastbourne Red.

Eastbourne, Billy was sacked because he had flipped and was damaging our club in the eyes not only of us fans but (inter)nationally. To have kept him on till the end of the season would have landed us in mid table (as we still might) but would have done much more irreparable harm. Plus he would prob have sacked Fawaz by then! I was a Billy fan and wanted him back but I'm glad he's gone now. It took the shine off his return straight away by banning interviews with Radio Nottm.

(0)
(0)

How will it go pear shaped? We're already buggered as it is so psycho taking over isn't going to prove anymore negative than the team is already showing. GB IMO, is doing a great job. Not afraid to talk to the media and knows what's he's doing regarding team selection and subs when required. We lost yesterday fair enough but as much as we've got to push for play offs, Millwall are fighting to stay on the league and all due respect, they got the result they were sought after.

(0)
(1)

By all accounts Lansbury and Wilson coming on made a big difference. Just a thought, why aren't these players starting, it might allow us to establish dominance which would hopefully result in a goal or two. then substitute them and try and hang-on! Seems better than bringing them on when the 'cause' is already lost!

(1)
(0)

". knows what's he's doing regarding team selection and subs when required. " Really? I know we've got injuries but we also have a large and versatile squad - Charlton and yesterday's selections and subs were contenders for the 'pick the worst possible team out of our squad' awards!

The same Abdoun who was at the player awards last night?

It was not going to be easy for GB, but some of the players should hang their heads in shame apart from Darlow, Osborn, Wilson, Lansbury and Paterson. I wish the the rest had the same passion and commitment that Lansbury showed when he came on. It's not over yet, but fingers crossed Reading slip up! Scottish Red

How are the losses going to be brought in line with FFP?

You can't lay the blame at GB's door! The turmoil created in the dying days of the last 'regime' will take time to rectify. There is virtually no backroom staff (apart from the Academy coaches), no CEO/DoF and no strategy. It isn't too late to hit a purple patch and get 6th spot but after watching yesterday's first half showing I am not at all confident! As for picking Lansbury and Wilson from the start - listen to Henri's interview by Chippers. Says himself that not fit enough to start and might not be for another couple of weeks. Tuesday night is now 'must win' so let's hope that the lads start well to get the crowd involved and help us get an essential 3-pts.

(1)
(0)

I hope to god we don't get into the playoffs and somehow fluke a couple of wins. We need to stay in the championship. The club needs stabilizing behind the scenes, recruiting a CEO and a DOF is necessity. The squad needs over hauling to many average players once you get past Darlow Lacelless, Hobbs, Wilson, Cohen, Jara, Lansbury, Reid and Paterson every team in the Championship would love to have these guys that's it the rest of the squad needs replacing. We just seem to be going round and round in circles, it needs to stop and hopefully with psycho it will. Fun or frustrating times ahead. Let's cheer the lads on till the end of the season and watch what happens over the close season,

(1)
(0)

I wasn't suggesting that Lansbury and Wilson play the whole 90 mins, rather, that they start and help establish hopefully some dominance, that might give us a lead, then substitute them as they tire. Coming back to draw or win is never as easy as maintaining a lead, just ask Milwall!

(0)
(0)

If I were a fully fit first team player and the boss told me my prospects of getting in the team alongside the current shower were so remote that he was relegating me to the stiffs, I think I'd be a bit chippy about it too.
