Chad Evens may be on the cards apparently, not sure if the rumour has any substance but I suppose he would be a free signing. Do I care about his rape charge again not sure.

Was a good player at one point.

If he had the rape thing overturned then I would take him on a free aswell until then no thanks plus he has never proved his self at this level

Not worth the controversy by any means. Even if he was a proven 20 goal Champo striker, I'd be against it, but he isn't. If we're that desperate for a striker then play Veldwijk or Kyle Walker.

Though we can still bring in 2 players as long as no fee and for under £10,000 a week. Or if we sell a player can use 75% of his fee to buy a player.

I have seen this other sites but my question is - where is the information of our official website?. I have moaned about out of date news on the site before and now we have an important issue and NOTHING. The site is an absolute disgrace and whoever is responsible for updating it needs either a rocket up the backside or sacking (or both). Communication is the key ingredient for any business and NFFC is no exception. Rant over COYR

pedroalicante

SP took over an absolute shambles by all accounts, and has taken it upon himself to rebuild the club personally. i'm ITK and have it on good authority the website is on the list. One below "more water in the lager" and one above "winning football matches".

Cjay

(0)

Pedroalicante - no updates on Leeds or Blackburn sites either. Maybe the clubs are considering their position before making a public statement. You know, like professionally run businesses do??

I am sure the absence of an update has nothing to do with the person/ people that manage the website.

So please keep your rants to yourself!

Tricky1972

Ed01{Ed001's Note - actually the club don't run the sites, they are farmed out to a company owned by the Football League. I think there are 86 club sites they maintain, certainly there were 86 under their umbrella a couple of years back. Hence why they all look the same, but with different colours, and are all so poorly run. It was called Football League Interactive, though they could well have changed name since I last heard.}

(1)
(1)

The content of the sites is managed by the clubs and their comms departments - and they have access to publish information.

It is true that the clubs don't own the site infrastructure (which I agree isn't particularly good) but that makes no difference to whether we can get a message live in 3 hours.

The reason that there is no update on the site, is because the club have chosen not to comment yet - and why should they?

Tricky1972

Ed01{Ed001's Note - perhaps because it is good business practice to communicate with your paying customers? And yes it can make a difference because one of the issues with them has always been the lack of speed with which updates can be added. It must have changed if the clubs are now managing them, as they were always managed by the websites themselves in the past. Hence why press releases are in the public domain long before the sites get updated with the same info, as it is waiting on the FLI to get round to it on many occasions.}

NFFCDave you have it a little bit wrong mate well can sell a player but we can't pay a fee for a replacement but we can use 75% of his wage to pay the new player aslong as its under 600k all in.

I hope SP will be very cautious, and the club take advice and think hard before buying anyone else. By all means sell Lansbury, Abdoun, Collins, but I'd rather tread water for the rest of the season, give chances to our young talent, and get the club on to a really sound financial footing, so that we make sure roots and branches are clear and any omnishambles disappears for good. I'd like to be a fly on the wall at QPR when they reveal what is to happen to them and Happy-go-lucky Harry.

If we obtain two players in the January window (I believe that we don't need any more than that with the squad we have got) then the embargo won't hurt us too badly. We have several players who won't be having their contract renewed in the summer and of course we can replace them under the one out one in rule if the embargo continues.

Im sure there is a reason but as fawaz is our shirt sponsor why couldn't he have made the shirt sponsor worth say 50 million and stopped all this as its classed as income seems to simple so i'm sure there must be rule or regulation in place

Response to Tricky1972. Like ED says it is good business practice. Even if the statement was simply about the embargo and that the ramifications were being looked into and considered. Any assurances they could make at this stage regarding minimising any future negatives would have been welcomed. I guess you must be into Mushroom Management, Tricky 1972, "keep em in the dark". Oh and rants will continue at mine and Ed's discretion

If a transfer embargo is imminent we need to trade with our assets in order to progress. If there's money on the table for Osborn, we should re-invest in a decent creative midfielder. Osborn is decent, but we have a few players who can fulfill his role. Our brush with the FFp law has put paid to buying quality & nurturing talent, its time to duck & dive.

Pearce seem to think we will be under an embargo in January. think his words are more trust worthy. we will be able to bring players in on the basis of one out one in. we can also bring in 2 over 21 players as long as there free and wages don't exceed 10k a week.

Our centre backs are ok what we need is a proper Holding midfield general to sit in front of the back four so they're not so exposed. We also need some more creativity but hopefully Reidy will find his form quickly when fit.

Pearce is looking to strengthen his squad before Thursday's dead line day.
Here are three possible loan targets-
Nathan Ake (chelsea), Gedion Zelalem (Arsenal) & Scott Sinclair (Man City).

Red_Til_Im_Dead

I would think Ake and Zelalem are to young for us at the moment we need experience in midfield,and Sinclair is a winger,what about Knoekart from fester

boilerman

Didn't wenger say the reason he didn't re-sign Fabregas was Zelalem, if so he could be good, I think Sinclair would be good for us and him, he needs play time, we need his prem experience. Ake looks good aswell.

I wouldn't of thought so, unless Pearce has taken an interest in him over the last week or so.
A few weeks ago Fester denied any knowledge of any interest for Knockaert in the loan market.
But who knows ?
Knockaert could be the fourth phone call Pearce made, along with the three I mentioned.

I don't think Pearce will bring any loans in.
Who would be available that would get in cm in front of
Vaughen Lansbury tesche osbourne and Reid will be back end December. We're sorted for wingers. If owt I'd prefare another forward got no decent back up if britt or fryatt get injured.
Defoe would be nice but chris wood could do a job for us.
Thoughts anyone

I read somewhere that sp mentioned now blackstock is pushing for a start a new striker is not on the cards. still think most important for us is to find a back up for Reid or to challenge him - no one really out there now of that calibre, but we should already be looking for next season.

Dazza60 Dazza60

We will do well to bring players of top quality in when we have a transfer embargo placed on us. if any come in they will be back up players just in case of any injuries accrue or fatigue.

uptheforest uptheforest

Transfer embargo is a possibility but not nailed on. Even if there was an embargo we would still be allowed to bring players in on a one in one out basis (get rid of the likes of Abdoun). I don't think we are desperate at the moment for fresh faces as I believe the squad is just right and it looks like Hobbs and Reid aren't far off returning. My only worry would be if we suddenly got another glut of injuries to key players like last season.

Apparently he's refused point blank to go out on loan to Sheff Utd as he doesn't want to drop down league one.
I think we are now considering offers other championship clubs, Sheff Wed being one of them.

Red_Til_Im_Dead

(0)

A short term loan with 24 hour recall would be a good thing. Training and playing in Under 21's is one thing but he needs games at championship level to get properly match fit. So when he does return he is 'good to go/ready to play' and we don't have to wait weeks for him to get up to speed.

redjames

(13)
(90)

I believe any Transfer Embargo is until Club has losses of less than £8m, however since this will be changing from Next Season I can't see how they can legally enforce it after the change (plus will then be £13m which I believe we're under). Plus the Embargo is that if we sell a player we can sign one as long as his wages are less than the outgoing player and within the a set limit that will have been imposed.

NFFCDave

Dont forget that there is a lot of players out of contract at the end of the season and if an embargo is underway we can replace these providing the new salaries are less. Of course we will be heading for the premiership plus the ground naming deal should be done and fawaz has promised an expanded city ground if we go up. SO its not all doom and gloom, keep the faih and support the boys.

When Barcelona were hit with an embargo, they were given a window to spend as they pleased prior to the embargo taking hold. If we aren't given the same, we should fight it in court. Should buy some time to spend anyway as they couldn't enforce the embargo until the legal challenge has been resolved.

The existing championship FFP framework will remain in place for the rest of this season 2014/15 & next season 2015/16.
At the beginning of the 2016/17 season the financial performance of championship clubs will be closely monitored over a 3 year period.
Within this period clubs will be able to make a loss of 15mill without having to explain how that loss will be funded.
In addition to this clubs will be able to lose more than 15mill but no more than 39mill, but will be subject to additional regulations if they do so.
Such as detailed forecasting on accounts for the 2 seasons ahead.
They are the basics, then it starts to get complicated, like promotion/relegation within that 3yr period.

The current championship FFP are a joke & are completely out of touch with the reality of financial loss clubs incur, not necessarily through spending but because thier income simply doesn't't cover thier losses.
Qpr were facing a £60mill fine last season through blatant flaunting of the FFP, what would of happened if they hadn't been promoted ?
I'm thinking nothing, too many loopholes.
Faulkner said his first job as Forest CEO would be to write the FA for clarification on the fundamentals of FFP in the championship, which in his words were about as clear of mud.

I don't think we have too much to worry about;
the reporter should stick to what he's paid for reporting on the football match, although I think he mentioned we won 2-1 at the end of the article.

I stand corrected ed, the increase is during the transitional period.
Although it makes you wonder why the FA don't start the new FFP infrastructure next season.
To say the new FFP will start 2016/17 season,
but then increase it to 13mill from 6mill the srason before is a bit strange.

Under the embargo we can still ad free agents to our squad providing there salary doesn't exceed 10k a week. i think you are allowed a squad of 24 or 25 players over 21 (u21's don't count as there youth and they want more youth coming through) I think we have 22 or 23 over 21's so we can still ad 1 or 2 players providing there's no fee and there wages aren't over 10k per week. that's if I heard right on radio nottingham on sat. we can also sell one and bring one in during the embargoes. we will no more in jan.

Stop buying/loaning overated, overpriced injured/semi fit players that produce very little. by all means pay good money for really up coming talent like we have recently, but for gods sake i wish we would stop having our pants pulled down several times a year with obvious injury prone players. i dread to think how much money is sat in the treatment room. . AGAIN!!

Do we will really need extras in the squad in the next 2 years if we stay in the championship ?
1. We can have a squad of 25 - one leaves then we can get another player but pay him a miserable £10000 a week surely not enough to live on!
2. As I understand it we can bring in players under the age of 21
3. Not sure about loans
4. Simple answer to get into the premier league this season

No he hasn't. The plan is over 2 seasons. We have been the laughing stock of the Championship over the past 2 years because of the manager revolving door syndrome. Pearce was brought in to stop that and to set up the systems that support the club in the long term. I don't like the results or the style of play at the moment either but to get rid of Pearce after 4 months is utter madness. Fans need to behave like adults not spoilt brats who want it all now.

We all hate the results at the moment.
You can't help the facts that individual players are making mistakes that are costing us goals, but be positive We e only 8 points from the top

1978

(8)
(1)

It is sad to see but Pearce's managerial track record doesn't give hope he has the ability, tactics or skills to turn it around.

Had he not been a Forest legend Fawaz wouldn't have given his CV a second glance.

Yes mistakes are happening but not for every goal. Brentford could/should have been 4-0 up at half time, only one goal was a genuine error.

UD

(2)
(4)

Is it not an individual error from a defender for not closing his man down or giving the ball away as we did last night and against Blackburn and giving away fouls and penalties. Each player has a job to do and at the moment we are not doing it like we were in the early weeks of the season, Eric's back pass was very poor Nobody closed the man with the ball down for the first goal and Wilson was a yard too slow and gave away the penalty. we were a yard off the pace all over the pitch. I even asked after the match Who was given man of the match

1978

(6)
(1)

Redjoy, we all have our opinions. The football under Pearce is atrocious has been all season. Did you see the ridiculous 3 3 3 1 set up last night?

We have the International break to bring in either Chris Hughton or Brian Mcdermott to stop the rot. Pulis won't come. If Fawaz does not act now come Christmas we will be firmly in a relegation scrap.

Bluebird1964

Three players warranted the shirt last night. Despite letting in three thought darlow had a solid game. Osborne was decent and worked hard closing the ball and finally Antonio who wads co start threat.
The rest I cannot finds the words for. Well without swearing anyway. They should have put that lad on who netted from the halfway line at half time

Keeno

Be careful of what you all wish for!
Changing managers is the last thing we need having laid solid foundations at the club behind the scenes.

This League is even more competitive this year and we have no right to be in the promotion places everyone has to knuckle down and be patient.

Unforced errors, 2 injuries and a poor decision on a disallowed goal are hardly down to the manager!

Keep the faith

Redinexile Redinexile

Redinexile

Yes - last nights game in isolation they aren't down to him. But it's been weeks now where we've looked shaky. Poor players make mistakes.

The scary thing is Pearce's main attributes are bravery, leadership, commitment - and this just isn't being replicated on the field.

Yes we need stability - but appointing a former legend who happens to be a below average manager doesn't give you that. does it?

UD

Yes but this is not a one off! Poor performances have been in for some time now.

Bluebird1964

It is still early days - the league is not won before Xmas! I recall many years ago Ipswich making an amazing charge up a league whn they looked dead and buried. SP has to be given time and some of our best players are injured. I agree Lascelles and Darlow have their thoughts elsewhere but we have cover for those positions even if we have to blood younger players and this might be the time to do so.

dickiereddog

We're in freefall now and I don't believe Pearce is the manager to bring us out of this slump. He doesn't seem to have the tactics or knowhow to handle the Championship. I personally feel that something isn't right in the background of this team. The players lack motivation and they are making stupid mistakes - something I never thought I'd see from a team managed by Stuart Pearce. This is a results buisness now and all managers have these slumps and 9 times out of 10 it ends with the manager getting the sack. If Forest are to lose on Saturday to Norwich then we'll be staring at the wrong end of the table and Pearce may be in Fawaz's firing line soon after. I so want for Pearce to bring us the results we desperately need to propel us back up the table but I can't see it happening. Maybe Tony Pulis or even Eddie Howe are potential managers that could fill the hot seat if the curtain falls on Pearce's reign. If we keep losing we may have to face up to fact that we need a new manager and unfortunately in this game there isn't any room for sentiment.

Yes I was at the game last night, and at Huddersfield on Saturday. It's dreadful. I'm not saying it isn't. What I am saying is that if fans demand a manager out who isn't winning all the time, after Only four months, they are setting themselves up to be another Leeds, another Cardiff. Will Russell Slade last once he loses a few? Of course not. We have looked bonkers enough over the last two seasons, let's not do it any more. Team management ( any management) is a very complicated job, if only it was as easy as passing on your skills and commitment and knowledge as a player to the team immediately. They are all different people and will learn differently and in different timescales. It's not a computer game, its real life! It takes time for things to gel, to learn from mistakes and we have to give Pearce some time. He loves Forest and it will be hurting him as much as it does us, more, because he is ultimately responsible for it and we aren't. If he goes, we will just start the whole sorry process all over again and back in the same state, if not worse than before. He's got rid of a lot of the players the fans slagged off last year and brought in some proper quality. the situation behind the scenes is being sorted. It's a long, tough task. Rome wasn't built in a day and we don't have Cloughie on that particular job anymore! And look how long, in reality, it took even him!

We will be a laughing stock if fawaz sacks sp. he will get it right I am certain. It's no coincidence that we haven't won since Reid and Cohen got injured. Yes I am a season ticket holder and no I am not happy with how we are playing. Booing the players off is a great way to increase confidence! Get behind the manager and the team like the bridgeford end did on weds. Yes it's sloppy. Yes we miss Hobbs Reid and Cohen. Sack Pearce and it's back to the drawing board. There is plenty of talent in the squad, just a lack of confidence. One win could change everything! COYR

KingsLynnRed

Agreed - sacking SP achieves nothing. Confidence will plummet, a new manager will get rid of those players he does not like and bring in yet more - totally illogical. Look at Man City, loss of confidence, Man Utd Van Gaal says he needs three years etc. Perhaps our aspirations are too high and too soon! We have the players, we have the youth, we have a good, yes good man as manager. As somebody said before 'Rome was not built in a day'. There has over the past few years bee a lot of lows and not many highs - BD would not do any better in my opinion nor would anybody else. Patience is a virtue and SP needs our support and belief in his vision - there is one believe me!

What a difference a game makes ;-). Nearly dislocated my shoulder when the second one went in. Thought Parterson earned a starting position and Osborn should stay on with Tesch in the Midfield. 4-4-2 at home it's not rocket science!!!

TelfordRed:

Result was good yes- feels extra special winning like that late on.

Tesche and Osborn - difficult one - not sure what sort of midfielders they are - they don't create much nor are they tacklers. Both neat and tidy but neither really influences a football match. Finding the right combination in centre mid is proving a tough one!

UD

UD:

Yep can't argue with that but I thought they did the simple things well. Still give the ball away a bit too much but think it has potential. Let's be honest Vaughan doesn't seem to be able to stay on the pitch long enough to really gain match fitness and Henri has been a bit disapointing this season so far. Any club would miss Cohen and Reid in this league!

Just found the latest on Pozo - "Nottingham Forest have made a loan enquiry for Manchester City striker Jose Angel Pozo - dubbed 'The mini Messi'.
Forest boss Stuart Pearce is hoping his former ties being in the Etihad hot-seat will now help him steal a march on a host of interested clubs.
Pozo, 18, is considered one of the brightest stars in City's Academy and was plucked from Real Madrid two years ago for £2.4m.
The starlet scored on his first-team debut against Sheffield Wednesday in the Capital One Cup this season and has also impressed in the youth version of the Champions League.
Pozo was ruled out last term with a bad ankle injury but has got himself back to full fitness and City are now considering testing the Spaniard at a higher level".

I don't believe it's purely the fault of our defense - the last few games the passing from mid to attack has been pants leavin the defense with too much to deal with and I don't think any more signings will help - we have to have an alternate style to switch to as well as improve our terrible passing. we could start by keeping it on the deck

Ince has faffed about every time he's offered a move. It obviously works well for him, that's why he plays for Hull reserves ! If he continues to dither over just a months loan I'd let him stew in the reserves ……we want players who want to play for us, not failed prima donnas, IMO.

All doom & gloom but its not that bad, the same report says that we are still expecting a positive response from Ince today and he could sign this afternoon.
I'm thinking that with the rumours that he has already signed - the delay in the signing is now leading to disappointment - but Ince hasn't said he doesn't want to sign for us & he hasn't said he is considering other offers.
