A daily rag is saying we are hoping to sign get Pieria on a permanent basis, good deal as long as PM stops playing him as a full back😎.

Reported we are interested in a Grimsby striker called Omar Bogle very physical and good at link up play, not a bad scoring record, Wigan interested as well, worth about a mill 😎.
26 Sep 2016 19:50:22
Would be perfect as I keep saying, target lower leagues. But that would be too intelligent for forest.
26 Sep 2016 20:01:13
Told you a long while ago, English clubs won, t sell or loan to us.
26 Sep 2016 20:02:52
I think we should target a young lad playing for red bull, I think we could get him for about 15 million.
26 Sep 2016 20:07:15
No transfers or loans until January window so we can fancy anyone now. it is irrelevant saying we are interested in certain players and teams will not loan us players because they can't at the moment.
26 Sep 2016 20:16:35
Oj that's ok mate. until you put him in a Forest shirt, then he'll probably play like "Omar" Shariff! 😂😂😂.
27 Sep 2016 09:26:52
Omar played very well, wasn, t he world backgammon champion?
27 Sep 2016 14:40:24
Worth a gamble!
24 Sep 2016 21:41:07
I am afraid Montanier will be gone by end of October unless he starts to turn things round. Our owner is a man with no patience, no CEO, no FD and no idea!
The sooner he sells the club the better. Let's hope it is soon.
Tuesday showed us just how far we have dropped. We are a million miles from the Premiership and we were probably half a million miles away when he bought the club for a knockdown price from Mrs Doughty.
We have gone backwards off the pitch and on the pitch over the last 4 disastrous years of Al Hasawi ownership.
24 Sep 2016 23:24:07
I like PM and think he has brought in some great players with very little money. Give him time and he will sort out the defence because that is all that is missing. Be shocking to see him go, totally unjustified. COYR'S.
25 Sep 2016 00:04:21
Here we go again. I give up I just give up. Just stick together as a club.
25 Sep 2016 09:21:49
Nothing wrong with Montanier in my view. Needs time. Lichaj needs to pick his game up and stop wandering all over the pitch. Mills needs to be aware where the opponent is in and around the box. and to hoof the ball out of defence when under pressure instead of trying to play it out. Pereira (spelling? ) needs to be played on the flank. Benny needs to takle more (and play to the whistle, not wait around for a foul being given when the opposition have buggered off down the pitch to score) . Kasami was lost yesterday against Weds, worst game for us.
I am sure we'll get there.
25 Sep 2016 10:35:32
PM is definitely a good manager and made some frugal acquisitions, he's still sorting his best 11 so we (including Fawaz) need to be patient. To say he'll be gone by end of Oct is crazy.
Our new signings are still finding their feet but admit it is frustrating to lose from a winning position again. Looking forwards to Hobbs, Vaughn and Britt being available again.
Keep going PM, enjoying an attacking brand of footy.
25 Sep 2016 10:35:46
May I just point out that the Arsenal starting XI on Tuesday cost them £95m, our starting XI cost £2.4m (give or take a few quid) . Are we really criticising Fawaz for the widening budget between Champions League and Football League over the last 10 years?
We have wasted some money, for example the Algerian lads, he has appointed and sacked some rubbish managers and we don't pay our bills on time. all fair! But the fact that a team can change 11 players and still turn out a side that's worth more than 2/ 3 of the squads in the Championship combined isn't his fault!
25 Sep 2016 13:19:59
Despite coming out of the embargo we still aren't good enough to go up. If we'd kept Burke and had Assombalonga fit then maybe.
25 Sep 2016 14:19:24
Are we a million miles from the premier league? I'm not so sure. We are a million miles from teams like Arsenal but if we achieved promotion we wouldn't be competing with teams like them (and that Arsenal team would have hammered most in the championship) Our competitors would be in the bottom half.
Our first half performance against recently relegated Norwich was encouraging. We more than held our own against them, it was only in the second half their quality shone through. And this is a good indication as to where we are.
Yes we have some player issues and everyone on here has slightly different opinions to what they are but that's football. Overall I am happy with our start and with PM. After last season it is refreshing to see some attacking football and even though we are going to lose a few this year I feel optimistic about each game. An optimism that was eroded by this time last season.
25 Sep 2016 14:37:05
Good post that ginger.
Reference Mills most teams he's played for have been poor at the back.
We should play with wing backs with mancienne, perquis and Hobbs.
Agree ludicrous to say PM will be gone soon but his constant rotation of the back four is becoming frustrating and making him look a bit of a Baffoon - which is isn't.
He's had enough to time to settle this back four quandary, time it was settled now as settling should help us to progress.
25 Sep 2016 16:51:22
Hang on guys. I didn't say montanier should gob I said the bloke who owns the club will lose patience.
25 Sep 2016 22:03:35
Sell your best player and bring in Lica, Dumitru and Carayol.
As I said the average players for a potential world class player, no thank you.
I wouldn't have sold Burke for 30 million.
He is now terrorising the Bundesliga.
Well done Fawaz another good bit of business 😝.
26 Sep 2016 07:26:38
Bluebird you talk nonsense. For a club coming out of a embargo and losing money hand over fist a month we had to sell a teenager for 13m. We would not have been offered much more.
last season everyone would have been happy selling him for 3m a few games later there moaning about 13m.
forget Burke it was good business for our club (fact) . It garentees not going into a embargo for a long time. Which is good going forward and more attractive investment to sponsors, takeover bidders or invester.
26 Sep 2016 08:18:47
Darren, you're spot on there.
As crap as it is you're right.
With 17,000 home fans are income is dropping.
26 Sep 2016 12:01:42
No Darrenforest1976 it is you who is talking nonsense. Selling your asset is not the way forward.
Ask yourself why Forest were in an embargo in the first place and then ask why crowds are falling.
As fans we want entertainment selling Burke was another Fawaz faux pas.
26 Sep 2016 13:01:06
Darren you are wasting your time on this argument mate, next you will accused of being a happy clapper, being stupid and then you'll be told to wake up. Surely by now you must know that Fawaz is to blame for everything that's gone wrong at forest over the last 20 years :)
27 Sep 2016 14:47:33
I blame "The Curse of Billy Davies"!
We do not need a striker we need an Exorcist!
As Mad Dog is St Mirren bound maybe the ghost will finally be exorcised by the Monk of Paisley Abbey?
23 Sep 2016 15:24:50
Signed Lewis Walters a forward, was released by Leeds some time ago.
23 Sep 2016 18:07:40
Where have you got this from?
23 Sep 2016 18:49:56
On a site called Vital Forest😎.
23 Sep 2016 19:32:06
He's playing for the U23s tonight.
23 Sep 2016 19:35:51
It was from Football Insider.
23 Sep 2016 20:10:10
He has just scored😎.
23 Sep 2016 20:18:35
Who with, is she pretty.
23 Sep 2016 20:24:56
Bit plump and bouncy⚽😎.
23 Sep 2016 20:39:33
A goer then.
23 Sep 2016 20:41:50
Well at least he can shoot straight .
23 Sep 2016 20:49:09
From the reaction of Leeds fans it sounds like we have signed a potential gem who did not get a fair crack at LUFC.
24 Sep 2016 17:07:04
Hope he doesn't play like Julie Walters!
24 Sep 2016 18:53:47
Nice one 😁😁.
22 Sep 2016 17:07:54
Henderson has a hip injury according to a journalist called Paul Taylor.
A hip problem.
Bendtner thinks diet is not important to a footballer, he has apparently said.
22 Sep 2016 18:38:49
Is Bendtner a Hip guy?
22 Sep 2016 18:51:49
Very funny bsered, i like that.
20 Sep 2016 14:08:23
Can someone confirm The time frame of Britts injury. I have been told today it's up to 6 weeks.
20 Sep 2016 15:37:55
6 weeks! Was it his hamstring against Burton?
21 Sep 2016 09:51:22
Don't think it will be that long. Whether it's his hamstring or his calf, no point bringing him back until he's completely clear of the injury.
21 Sep 2016 10:11:55
Yeah I just think they are wrapping our start player in cotton wool and making sure he is completely clear of the injury before risking him. Common sense I think as Brit could be the difference between playoffs or not.
21 Sep 2016 10:48:13
I think it's worse than is being let on.
21 Sep 2016 14:22:38
We don't really know anything guys do we. At least Vellios is coming into form. No rush I say. Let him get 100%.
21 Sep 2016 14:38:17
Play offs? No chance of those this season.
21 Sep 2016 14:53:27
The team have proved that it's not scoring goals we need to worry about, it's stopping the ball from going in the net. Until our defensive frailties are sorted out we're going nowhere.
22 Sep 2016 07:28:58
That's what's great about Red supporters, nick26, give up on the season while we're not yet out of September.
22 Sep 2016 10:04:14
Give up no. Be a realist, yes.
22 Sep 2016 11:57:14
Im with nick26, a play off prediction for this season is verging on comical.
Balance the books with a midtable finish will be an achievement in itself. We'll bully a few of the lesser clubs but there's a fair few better sides than us in this league.
18 Sep 2016 10:36:27
Just a little snipit from yesterday.
The American consortium is led by Brad Friedel and He was at the ground last week. so with luck this will be going ahead soon.
18 Sep 2016 15:05:26
Must of made a lot of money in the last 5years. was made bankrupt 5years ago.
18 Sep 2016 15:18:30
So with any luck we will have someone joint in charge that has made some cracking decisions that led him to be made bankrupt.
18 Sep 2016 17:02:44
Like Fawaz It does not have to be his money He may just be advising the Americans,
18 Sep 2016 17:06:08
Not true. Friedel was there with the USA under 19's on a tour of the ground.
18 Sep 2016 17:18:31
Fawaz wasn't in a consortium. brad would be having to put money in like the rest of them, weather it be from a company he has links with or himself. his net worth couldn't run the club for a month. not much of a partnership if brad is advising and the others are putting the money in. they could do that without him.
18 Sep 2016 19:37:26
Fawaz was in a consortium with the rest of his Family.
His brother pulled out about six weeks in because He could not see it working and the rest of his family backed him until recently when they pulled the plug on spending any mone money because they could only see the debt racking up and that's why He needs investment.
18 Sep 2016 20:06:28
If Friedel is part of the consortium it will only be as the face for presentation purposes.
Pure because he is repected for his achievements as a footballer.
19 Sep 2016 16:51:42
1978 i here you but i thought the family pulled the younger brother out because he was making a pigs ear of it, not paying debts and players not being paid?
19 Sep 2016 21:17:20
Rutland just think of what you have just said
The Bills to this day are not paid on time
So I don't think you at right.
19 Sep 2016 22:40:25
1978 that was irony lol. Do you remember his bald cousin or brother totally out of his depth. But is fawaz any better?
20 Sep 2016 15:40:50
You serious TNGH? Briedal has a face like a bag of Spanners!
21 Sep 2016 08:51:31
Aye, he's got a face like a stuntman's knee, that's for sure.
16 Sep 2016 22:09:03
Being reported that Derby, Swansea and Forest interested in free agent Martin Careces central midfielder who can also play at fullback, 69 caps for Uraguay very tenacious just what we need to shore up our leaky defense, and only 29.
16 Sep 2016 22:20:25
Bye bye Hobbs if so.
17 Sep 2016 07:57:22
No thanks. Had too many serious injuries; not played since being injured in January. 29 is still too old.
We should be looking for players who are on an upward trajectory, not downward.
17 Sep 2016 08:02:37
No Thanks. He has had too many serious injuries and has not played since January. He is also too old at 29.
We should be looking for players on an upward trajectory not downward.
17 Sep 2016 09:26:37
Rumours that chelski were interested so clearly has some quality 29 too old? give over we need a good mix of youth and experience Pretty sure PP would be familiar with his quality due to his time at juventus so we will see .
17 Sep 2016 13:16:58
I have to disagree. I can't see his age being an issue at 29.Any good team will have a mixture young and older players as experience can be invaluable. I don't know about his injury history though as that could be an issue at forest.
17 Sep 2016 22:03:56
I agree we should have a mix of youth and experience. But we should be buying mostly younger players who will improve and can be sold at a profit after a few years. E. g Antonio.
Caceres would be another Traore; less than ten starts a season. What's the point of bringing in someone like that.
14 Sep 2016 19:16:08
So as we are strapped for Cash for 3 months we have gone and got a Grant.
Traore is playing tonight.
14 Sep 2016 22:30:18
Will Fawaz be able to pay the intrest as He has no Wonga.
15 Sep 2016 01:57:09
We have no players called by those names.
15 Sep 2016 10:05:33
Tomorrow. If only he had said Assombawonga. Doh! ;-)
11 Sep 2016 10:16:19
Forgive me if I'm been a bit slow here but why would Fawaz sell the club for 40m when he says he has put in over 100m? I know about cutting your losses but can't imagine for a second he would go that far?
11 Sep 2016 12:56:22
Why would he sell now when this season we may actually have a chance of going up then he can recoup all of the money he's put in.
11 Sep 2016 13:15:24
40 mill gor the club but you inherit 100mil debt.
11 Sep 2016 13:17:23
Chance of promotion?
You see that already?
Something different is on the cards for sure but have you honestly seen levels of performance against a range of different opposition to predict we can be in with a shout of promotion.
If we are getting these results by early November expectations should rise.
At the moment we could just enjoy seeing where a different approach at the club takes us instead of the same path we've trod for many years.
12 Sep 2016 11:04:27
If he can sell the club for £40 million He would have to wright off 60 million and that would get him out of Nottingham forest otherwise He will either have to run the club down and still end up loosing money or take a loss of 100 million and give it away, taking a 60 million loss is his best option.
12 Sep 2016 13:03:48
Very surprised he didn't cash in on other players in the summer before running away! Then again, maybe none of the offers were cash up front so wouldn't have been in his best interest.
I can't see him walking away clean tho, and £40m is way off what he values the club at so wouldn't be shocked to see him keep a role and percentage at the club, promotion over the next few years, even at 20% could see him pocket £50m, on top of the £40m from Americans and the player sales, he'll be up.
12 Sep 2016 19:50:02
Agreed 2 tone, still very early in the season, Villa match really worried me, hope we can improve as the Season progresses.
12 Sep 2016 20:27:32
We got beat 3-0 against Brighton, but could have been six or seven.
We got a fighting draw at Villa, we have players that are expected back soon that would most likely be in the starting line-up when match fit.
All very promising to me.
All hail Phillipe :-)
12 Sep 2016 21:19:22
Mystic you have to realise in Kuwait culture it would be thought bad to made bankrupt and not pay your debts, but if you sell your business for a loss and move to something else that is regarded as quite acceptable.
13 Sep 2016 11:52:04
£40 million back in the pot.
New owner takes on £30 million pound loan Fawaz generously saddled the club with.
£75 million asking price almost sorted.
And Fawaz gets away from a £2 million a month loss.
13 Sep 2016 12:56:45
Taking a 60 mill loss is his best option? Big LOL haha.
13 Sep 2016 21:04:19
Is it not an investment deal?
