Red top tabloid reports today that Burnley are set to finally land Henri Lansbury. He has a clause in his contract that allows him to leave for a Premier league club for £2.5m. The clause however, is only active for one week in June to prevent a long drawn-out saga.

And only if the player wants to leave!

So what your saying is he's a blue cross sale!

Agree0 Disagree0

29 May 2016 14:08:24
I do like Lansbury, but just that little too inconsistent for me. Saw more of the game in an advanced position, so if he does stay then we need to play him there. Would you keep him as captain? I like the thought if Doris being captain and marshalling from the back (bit like Shilts) .

Agree1 Disagree0

29 May 2016 14:26:11
Is this the Henri Lansbury that has allegedly sold his Nottingham home and the football club in Burnley that have let Joey Barton go.
Have to say I always thought he would go, but to London club.

Yes agreed Doncaster Red, Karl who?

Might be just coincidence but just parked up in CG car park to go forest shop and there is 2 black Range Rovers with Reg plate GIGGS and the other FAWAZ like I said might just be coincidence.

The Greek under 21's manager Antonis Nikopolidis is in the frame to be our next manager.
He's not listed in the betting market's but Greek sports sites mention him a few times and link him to us.

Also

The guy who told me and was spot on with Pearson in talks with Derby then told me what day he'd be appointed. told me last night that first round of talks with manager's for the Forest job have taken place and anyone that's not already been spoken to won't be .
He only mentioned one name and that was to rule Martin O'Neil out and said as many as 7/ 8 manager's where spoken to and most where foreign managers.

Believable9 Unbelievable3

28 May 2016 12:23:33
I really hope it ain't the Greeks U21 manager taking over. can you imagine how that would go down? We had the chance to bag a decent and respected manager (assuming they would have come to us) and now - as I said the other day - we are being linked with dregs. I fear for the future.

Agree5 Disagree3

28 May 2016 13:02:13
my dad is in the frame to be our next manager
well he is on the list in talks tomorrow in the mill café
his dad was greek and is very good on football manager 2013
pays all his bills on time gas bill just done
so fits the bill.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 May 2016 13:26:55

Wish your dad all the best he has my full support.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 May 2016 14:17:56
Surely everyone involved in picking the manager wants the right man?

if it comes down to money then that would be telling but I suspect we'll be ok and I'm excited to see a young foreign coach come in.

Strikes me that Fawaz is putting forward the Wanock's and Garcia's and Fat Mario is putting forward all the Greeks.

It's like Algerian bingo over and over again.

Agree0 Disagree1

28 May 2016 14:52:38
To be honest I really hope we do go for someone not that well known that would possibly bring new ideas to the club. Pearce failed. Freedman failed. Billy Davies failed. All backed as well financially. Appreciate injuries haven't helped their cause but all this talk of ex players coming back really isn't the answer. If MON wanted the job he would have already have jumped at the chance.

Say three seasons ago who would have been happy with these four as the Forest manager? Quique Flores, Aitor Karanka, Chris Houghton and Sean Dyche.

To be honest I hadn't a clue who the first two were? Did you?

Disappointed we didn't get Pearson but let's move on.

F. T. I. D.

Agree0 Disagree3

28 May 2016 16:17:25
Freedman was backed financially? Really?

Agree3 Disagree0

28 May 2016 17:34:52
UNYR my granny Mabel will be his Player Coach! She's a bit forgetful, lives in the past, should fit right in!, but hey you should see her sell me a dummy on her 3 wheeler! . She's 103,but give her a bag of Werther's Original's and she could show our lot a trick or two!

😂😂😂.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 May 2016 18:24:58
Dregs is the only manager we currently deserve, why would a decent manager come to us, at the moment we are at best a mid table championship club with no money to spend and an owner who is a little challenging to work for. Not very attractive to most managers that have been in the frame.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 May 2016 19:00:15
Fernando Santos also being talked to. Has links with the next investors.

Believable1 Unbelievable2

27 May 2016 19:50:52
Santa is always welcome.


Dare I say it that his stats are amazing or will the usual realists come and complain about insignificant things such as facts being mentioned on the forum. I know numbers scare you.

Agree1 Disagree5

27 May 2016 21:22:03
I would love someone like Fernando Santos, Oscar Garcia or Vitor Periera. It would be awesome to see some decent attacking football, and play our way out of this league. And before everyone says you can't play your way out of this league, you can. What we've been doing for the last 17 seasons since relegation from the premier hasn't worked, so let's try a different approach. Alternatively we can keep watching Matt Mills, lumping it up to a lone striker, and then blaming him for not scoring enough goals. The fans are leaving faster than a wig in a hurricane, it's not just the results, the footballs been garbage.

Agree5 Disagree0

27 May 2016 21:36:19
Totally agree. Billy knew how to play passing football in the champ. Even with players like Anderson in the side.

Our current midfield and kids, including Osbourne, aren't up to it yet.

Agree7 Disagree2

28 May 2016 10:43:43
Anderson and Gunter were a phenomenal combination down the right N022, nothing has been as effective since and neither have those two players.

Agree3 Disagree0

28 May 2016 14:20:18
Pamela couldn't cross a decent ball if you game him all week.


He was also made of egg shells and broke every time someone looked at him. Can you remember him breaking his wrist after falling on the pitch. lol.

Agree0 Disagree3

28 May 2016 16:12:41
As the game we played back then wasn't about balls into the box (unless from set pieces) is why he was effective, high energy pressing the opposition supporting the full back and able to cover him.

Rather watch that than the rubbish we've watched since.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 May 2016 19:25:09
Agree with 2star. A good full back and winger pairing is vital, and Gunter and Anderson were great together. Reminded me of Laws and Crosby together.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 May 2016 23:01:55
At the moment we have an average/ poor right back in LICHAJ and an underdeveloped but potential filled winger in twisty. On the left we have in my opinion now friend has been promoted the best left back in the championship in pinillos but a weak winger being played out of position in Osborn. Need a left winger. WINNALL at Barnsley can play there and would be a great fit for a well run club. Ward can play on the left to so could do that but lacks pace as a winger. Too many average players with too many fualts and liabilities and not enough strength in depth in squad. Nowhere near a top 6 team at the moment. Need a massive process on and off the pitch this summer. Let's see what happens. COYR! 🌳🔥.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 May 2016 17:22:31
Montanier apparently offered a two year deal.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

27 May 2016 18:17:08
Don't know an awful lot about him. any good? Also, not sure about the rest of you but this whole manager situation is dragging on too long. we will get dregs.

Agree6 Disagree1

27 May 2016 18:35:34
Not a bad record in the French leagues, but no championship experience, Oscar Garcia would be a better choice😎.

Agree4 Disagree0

27 May 2016 18:40:27
Agree Doncaster Red. I think we have missed a trick in not trying to appoint Pearson back in March when we got rid of Freedman. Says everything about what a shambles our club has become. we have dragged our feet and meanwhile more and more clubs are now looking for a new manager. It's not rocket science is it? we SHOULD have gone all out in March to get the best man available and that man was arguably Pearson. Our loss is definitely Derby's gain IMHO. The circus continues!

Agree5 Disagree2

27 May 2016 19:52:56
You are assuming that he wanted to come to Fores? Surely he did what he felt was right and waited for the best opportunity to arise.

At this time that is Derby.

Agree1 Disagree1

27 May 2016 19:57:05
Reports all over France that Montanier has been offered 2 year deal.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 May 2016 20:06:13
How do you know we didn't approach Pearson in March?

Agree1 Disagree0

27 May 2016 20:32:59
Never said that he wasn't approached, did I?


Said he didn't accept because he was wisely waiting for the end of season auction to begin.

Agree0 Disagree1

27 May 2016 20:40:16
Pearson would never have come to a club as badly run as ours. Hate to say it but Derby is a better option for him, no meddling Fawaz being the main difference.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 May 2016 21:19:17
Climb down off ya high horse no.22 I was talking to ruddyforest. Jeez I dread to think what the other 21 are like!

Agree1 Disagree0

27 May 2016 21:38:27
Apologies but make it clear next time. ;)

Agree0 Disagree0

28 May 2016 10:58:43
Because did Fawaz not come out and say Martin O'Neill was his first choice? Doubt that would have made Pearson feel great would it? My point is that Fawaz should not have 'named names' just got on with the job of approaching the best man available at the time Freedman was relieved of his duties. We had a 2 month head start on other clubs - ample time to get our house in order and a manager in place. In the meantime a number of clubs have got rid of their managers (Reading, Villa, Derby, potentially Leeds) and we will be competing with them now. Once again we have missed a trick and like a lot of things continue to lag behind other better run clubs.

Agree3 Disagree0

28 May 2016 14:21:04
Fawaz and Mario will be arguing like cat and dog already. ;)

On 6th May I wrote HL gone to live in London. Rumoured he is to sign for Watford!

Believable0 Unbelievable3

27 May 2016 16:06:09
Really!

27 May 2016 16:17:50
Is that why we are interested in Brad Inman👀.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 May 2016 16:38:09
Might as well be John Inman! Sheep confirm Pearson on 3 yr deal with Chris Powell as his no2. They will be a force along with Newcastle.

Agree1 Disagree1

27 May 2016 18:28:54
you say it like he is on a free
unless Watford want to spend daft money or he don't want to stay he will be here next year.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 May 2016 19:11:37
What about the supposed release clause in Hl contract at 4 million if a Premier League team comes calling. We would have no control over that.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 May 2016 19:53:39
Most so called Forest fans want him gone anyway.

You'll miss him when he's playing in yellow.

Agree1 Disagree1

27 May 2016 20:45:37
Just like when we missed mcgugan.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 May 2016 21:41:54
Yes, we haven't seen long range strikes by a player the club owns since he left.

Has the football improved since he left? I seem to remember Billy playing the best football we have seen in his first spell, Mcgugan was in that team.


It's a lot like England fans saying Rooney should stay at home.

Agree2 Disagree0

27 May 2016 10:59:05
Andy Reid will eventually retire as his injury is to severe and he is struggling to open up his stride when running. Fryatt desperately wants to get fit but putting the club physio on gardening leave for a few months didn't help, he will need another operation before he can think about playing.
The appointment of a manager was slowed down by a second investor coming in to but forest need to finalise the deal as no pre season or fitness programs set up.
Warnock def coming as he and fawaz text and talk (ever since Pearce was in charge) a lot and has been on the cards for ages.

Believable0 Unbelievable5

27 May 2016 11:18:32
so how sure are you its Warnock?

Agree0 Disagree0

27 May 2016 13:15:15
Who is the second investor? 😏.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 May 2016 13:53:13
I bet Fawaz is one of those people on whatsapp who gives you the blue ticks but never replies. Warnock been texting him for a year now saying he'd want to manage but Fawaz just never replies. Seems like the sheep are getting Pearson. Missed opportunity if so.

Agree2 Disagree0

27 May 2016 17:23:52
It's not a missed opportunity as Pearson was never interested. Good Manager but I never liked the guy so it's a good fit that he's gone to the sheep.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 May 2016 21:45:35
High time Andy Greed moved on and freed some wages up.

Even if he comes back what will you get? 20 games. That would be the best case scenario and we'd only see flashes of the old AR because he'd be coming back from injury or building fitness.

Pointless hanging on to him now.

As for him being a good influence on kids. So is Peppa pig.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 May 2016 22:44:46
Pearson wouldn't have come to forest. It's all very well saying you don't like Pearson and the sheep keep blowing out in the playoffs. They in the last 10 years are considerably more successful as much as hurts me to say than us. Yes Pearson is a good fit and he'll take them to the premier league if not 2016/ 17 then the season after for sure if he's not gobbled up by a big team. Need to stop this obsession with Derby and their persuit of success coming close and failing and taking a look at our own special, bigger clubs mess. COYR let's get behind the team. Everything will fall into place we just need to trust those who exist at the top. As for Inman however not for me don't see a link with Lansbury leaving. Love scouting lower league but don't rate him as highly as others. Lansbury has the power. It will be sorted somehow. A word on Reid he was offered a contract out of loyalty and is a good figure of forest and the teams inheritance to have around for another year then give him job in coaching youth or somet 🌳.

26 May 2016 18:53:57
BREAKING' Sly Sources: Deal agreed in principle for the sale of Nottingham Forest from Fawaz Al-Hasawi to Olympiacos owner Evangelos Malinakis.

Sky Sports reporter Rob Dorsett says: I understand all matters agreed in principle for sale of Nottingham Forest. Now just due diligence for Evangelos Malinakis to pass FA/ FL owner's test. The club keen to for the sale to end quickly so that new manager and CEO can be appointed. The club also expects to be cleared of transfer embargo in due course.

Uptheforest I thought we was out of transfer embargo a few weeks ago?

26 May 2016 20:38:48
I thought tha Fawaz had said that we were out of the embargo.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 May 2016 20:53:08
Pass the diligence test, that's it then with all the charges against him we have more chance of getting jack the ripper😎.

Agree1 Disagree1

26 May 2016 20:54:07
Id not seen anything other than fawaz saying we would until tonight where someone sent me a link to the forest website which said the fl will lift the ban on the the opening of the transfer window which was the 7th of May at 2:30.
The reason i questioned it was because it hadn't been covered by sly sports whereas other teams had coverage on sly sports saying they had there's lifted.

Agree0 Disagree1

26 May 2016 21:15:05
I'm sure that the fit and proper test will be a formality, i can't see this having gone this far without someone making sure that it would be passed, and as far as i can see he has never been convicted of anything.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 May 2016 21:37:37
Bring it on. No way it can be any worse.

26 May 2016 09:27:46
Talksport talking about benitez staying at Newcastle this morning and warnock saying he would love to lock horns with him again! Don't know if anyone else picked up Brazil in the background? Said down at the city ground? Coyr.

I wasn't too enamoured about warnock initially, but I'm quite excited about him coming! Fingers crossed!

Agree2 Disagree2

26 May 2016 10:31:41
Yeah heard that Red2dead. didn't he mention another ground as well though? I imagine most of the Championship clubs without or wanting a new manager would be sniffing around Warnock, love him or hate him he's proven.

Pearson is 1-3 for sheep job and Sherwood is 6-1.

26 May 2016 12:51:09
I did notice on the odds list that Mel Morris is 28-1 to be sheep manager.

Bigger odds 33-1+ is the likes of Holloway, hoddle, stimac etc.

Looks like the new sponsor will have plenty of punters.

Nearly £18million of debt turned into equity according to the companieshouse. looks like some shares have been sold and shared out. guessing this is due to a new investor and was dated as 6th of May.

Believable0 Unbelievable2

26 May 2016 07:30:07
£8million debt waived and £17.5million of shares have been sold. so that would suggest the new investor/ owner has bought the 80% with fawaz keeping hold of 20% which values the club at around £21million which is about right for a club out size. is the waived £8million regards to the loss of ffp?

Agree0 Disagree2

26 May 2016 07:49:13
Fawaz has put iin an estimated 60 million in interest free loans to be repaid as and when. So what happens to that, surely this has to be taken into the accounts for ffp and into the value of the club. I can't see any business man walking away from this money or has certainn people misjudged fawaz.

Agree0 Disagree1

26 May 2016 09:33:10
There will be a requirement to repay the Doughty Trust their loans if we ever go up which I understand was a condition of the sale to Fawaz.

Agree0 Disagree1

26 May 2016 11:00:07
Doughty? More chance of seeing Fryatt on the pitch.

Agree0 Disagree5

26 May 2016 11:55:48
Might as well not get promoted if we owe Doughty £60 million and Fawaz £60 million.

Agree0 Disagree5

26 May 2016 15:28:37
Maybe the repay clause to Doughty was over 3/ 4 seasons? This would explain why Fawaz kept changing managers to ensure we did not go up so he gets a chance to collect more cash if we go up with the new regime?

Nothing like a good conspiracy to get the tongues wagging!

Agree0 Disagree0

26 May 2016 18:00:08
If we owe fawaz. Please tell me what Fawaz did for the club.

He didn't spend any money?

Agree0 Disagree2

26 May 2016 18:13:08
Here we go again 22-I sense I'm going to need my calculator :)
