In the broad sheets today that Forest are in trouble over FFP and may jeapordise our promotion, would ignore if in the trash comics but not a reputable paper. Worried Reddog

See the report in the NP today by Tails probably explains better and I expect that half the clubs in the Championship are going to be in same position.

I would think if half of the clubs are in the same boat it isn't working and there will have to be a re think on the situation

Why are you worried?the fa will see that we have drastically reduced the way we have been run and will take that on board. we all knew we would more than likely have an embargo in January because of how much it costs day to day to run the club. don't get too worried until the accounts get produced in December then we can see where we are. faulkner knows what he's doing

It is being reported that three Championship clubs are in the same boat.

I think we're still in a hangover period from last year when Fawaz was trying to do everything himself, including some horrendous signings. It seems we're back on the right road with a new CEO and a better wage bill, so hopefully this should all be history sooner rather than later.

Worst case scenario is that if we exceed an £8m loss when the accounts are filed in November we might be hit with a fine or with an embargo. That might harm us a little in the short term but as I say, we look to be on the right road now.

I think it's also key that what we file this year (so far) shows a marked improvement over last year and we demonstrate we are trying to adhere to it. That way the sanctions imposed may be less severe.
Puts into perspective the sales of darlow and lascelles slightly better

I understand that if there is a transfer embargo that we will still be able to bring players in on a one in one out basis. Although not ideal if we can offload the likes of Abdoun (possibly the highest earner in the club) and a couple of others that aren't making it into the first team, Forest will still be able to build/add for the final push in the new year.
Although an embargo isn't ideal the club will find a way to bring players in i'm sure.

Now confirmed on a news site that Darlow & Lascelles CANNOT be recalled. It says "NEWCASTLE United have now also confirmed that Jamaal Lascelles and Karl Darlow will be Nottingham Forest players for the rest of the season.

Stuart Pearce has repeatedly stated that the Premier League club have no recall clause for either player, following their return to the City Ground on loan.

That had not halted endless speculation that the duo, who were sold to United for a combined fee of around £6.5m, could be recalled to the north-east.

But now Newcastle themselves have confirmed what Pearce has been saying all along - that Forest have a cast iron agreement to keep the players for the entire season".

I expect Patterson will go out on loan for a month so he can get some game time, SP feels he still needs to work on his game as gives the ball away too much. Expect will have a recall clause Cjay to cover this, though don't think Patterson would play wide, more likely recall McLaughlin to cover this event if happened.

NFFCDave

(2)
(1)

Cant help but chuckle at the thought of SP being unhappy at Paterson giving the ball away too much, when the majority of Forest's play since he took over has been rather hoofball.

Maybe he should send the whole first team out on loan to learn how to keep possession? Send them down the A52, 'cus they seem to keep it quite well. Plus bus fare wouldn't be too much, so Fawaz wouldn't have to worry about FFP.

Pato going on loan started with a twitter account that is known for his bullpoo. I wouldn't trust him.

But i can see Pato going out on loan IF we are getting someone better in on loan.

We could use Mackie's services more than Walsall or L. Orient. He is a tireless worker, causes things to happen, and gives problems to defences that strikers can exploit. Big mistake to loan him to anyone. Recall him from Reading!

Patto doesn't need to go to a lower league team on loan. He has already proved himself at this level. How many goals did he score last season? What he needs is his manager to have as much confidence in him as most fans have.

On Saturday Paterson made it to the bench, but no further. We were looking for a winning goal and we got Fryatt brought on at 90 mins. Not fair to Fryatt and Paterson must have been spitting. Pearce should put the teams requirements first not nurture whatever dislike he has of Paterson, who just might have made the difference.

He's a good kid with lots of potential but I think we need some experience and creativity in our midfield.

Reid, when fit is probably one of the best players in the league, and that's without being biased, but his injuries are taking a long time to heal so he needs someone to cover his creativeness.

I don't know who's out there that we could loan from the likes of lower to middle prem teams that have superfluous creative midfielders or even proven top end prem teams fringe players.

Wouldn't mind Taarabt if he's fallen out with Harry at QPR. Not sure if he'd drop a league and he's a selfish and lazy player but he'd certainly have a go at defenders in the Championship.

I've always liked Aluko at Hull too and he doesn't seem to be getting much game time. Although, he's not really a No10.

I like Taraabt too. If football was 1 vs 1 i'd support him over most people even prem players but unfortunatly its 11 vs 11 and he's certainly no team player. Quality but not what we need at this club.

IF we were to allow him to go then we would be entitled to add his wages for the rest of the season to the transfer fee agreed. as they agreed a fee + loan back to us paying his wages for the season. This could amount to another million or so.

Vaughan could be back Saturday. SP has previously said (was in interview last week I think) Lewis was someone they looked at but decided not the player for them at this time.

NFFCDave

He will be in the squad on Saturday according to Pearce. wilson has recovered from the bug he picked up. get pato in there pulling the strings, he will open up some space for Britt to get in behind. like someone said the other day we could go 3-5-2
Darlow
Wilson mancienne lacselles
Hunt. Lichaj
Lansbury tesche
Pato
Britt fryatt
Those three at the back would easily cover anything that is thrown at them at this level giving lichaj and hunt a little more freedom to help out in midfield. or even Osborn in for lichaj as he can tackle but also has the energy to run his socks off and get back with more pace than lichaj. plenty of options with this squad to change it up if things don't work out.

uptheforest uptheforest

I think SP has already said in an interview, a week or two back, that Baker is more likely to go to Middlesbrough and that Forest weren't looking to move for him at the moment. Don't think muh will have changed from that.

And why would we all of a sudden switch to 352? A formation the players are unfamiliar with and one that, to my knowledge, SP has never used in the past? Bizarre.

SteveSuttonsWonkyEye

(0)
(1)

I would much prefer to see us stick to the diamond formation but play as follows:
Darlow (GK)
Hunt (RB)
Mancienne (CB)
Wilson (CB)
Lichaj (LB)
Tesche (DM)
Burke (RM)
Vaughan (CM)
Antonio (LM)
Lansbury (ACM)
Assombalonga (ST)

It would work like a 4-5-1 when we weren’t in possession and then a 4-3-3 when attacking. Extra midfield cover would help to fill the Reid void and Vaughan has it in his locker. Also allows full backs to get forward which is when we have been at our most dangerous this season. Osborn, Fryatt and Paterson can then be brought on to add real menace in the second half.

I wasn't suggesting doing this at the weekend I was saying that injuries aren't that bad but if they got worse we have loads of options to change formation to suit the fit players. rather than relying on getting new players in that might not work.
I'm one for sticking with what is working what we are doing is working so stick with it. all I was stating was that with ought the injury prone players we still have options.
Burke has been poor for us. can't work out if he's a starter or a last 20minute man to bring on.

SP said he would be looking at loan signings over the international break so I imagine that either the window is open or because of the injuries we have and relatively small squad we can take emergency loans.

Players with Reid's vision and range of passing are as rare as hen's teeth in this league. In fact apart from Wesley Hoooolahan of the Canaries and Dick Whittington of Cardiff i am struggling to think of any and as they are unrealistic targets it means looking at a prem player who is not getting much game time Guedioura for example.

Fawaz was well and truly duped into buying Hobbs,Vaughan is another player who cannot string a couple of games together before he picks another injury up, Wilson another player who seems to pick up injuries rarther easily. Although he seems (touch wood) to be getting back to a decent standard How much is the wage bill for these 3 knocking on 40k at a very conservative guess, money well spent, nice work if you can get it.

What annoys me most bout injury prone players is
They sign a say 3 year deal spend 2 years mostly out injured
Stay injury free in final year then leave on a free transfer. Clubs should put more clauses in.
As it stands Wilson missed bout 40 games last season and bout 7 this. Been payed whilst out injured
But I'd say he owes us approx 50 games
But let's hope he stays fit now for rest of his contract.

Is annoying and sad when players get injured, especially when long term, but not as much as it it for the players!! its the same for every team luck of the draw players get injured players don't. would you be the same to get rid of chris cohen so easily who plays is heart out for the club, I saw and chatted to chris yesterday at a clinic in Mansfield, and believe me the lads distraught he's out for the season just as any other player who's out, this is why a big strong squad is required, + there's often insurances in place when injured. So I think we should stop whining about it and give them all the support we can and enjoy how well we are still doing without them.

Hobbs, Vaughan and Wilson were signed by the previous manager whose name escapes me. It would be interesting to know if their fitness records were looked into before signing them. Also what form did the medicals take. Apart from Hobbs who also has a poor fitness record, none of SP's have been injured.

Reading were offering 3m for Hobbs in summer and I said I would have taken that at the time and everyone slated me for it. I said in. The post (which I think is still on here if you click my name) that although he may be the best cb in the division, it means nothing if he only plays 6 games a season. I would let him go for nothing right now just to get him off the wage bill, he is useless to us

I quite like the idea of being contracted for a number of games rather than a period of time. I missed the poster's name, but they make a good point about out of contract players leaving for free. Also to the OP, are you also frustrated with the club captain and Reidy? I'm certainly not. I'm pretty sure all these guys would rather be pushing for a place in the team. What we need is adequate cover.

Tdv

All I said is I would take 3m for a player that we knew wouldn't play much really and same with Vaughan, Reid and anyone else, have to weigh up the price and how much we need them, if they are not on the pitch then 2 bob is enough for anyone let alone 3m! If you had a choice of Hobbs for 6 games or 3m only a fool would choose Hobbs for 6 games.

Like I said I did say in the summer I would take 3m for him, we have other good cb at the club and at the time I think 3m was a decent offer for him. Every player has his price and in my opinion that was his. The team defiantly looks stronger with him in it but him, Reid, vaighan will probably manage 20 games between them and i would sooner have players that actually PLAY rather then our highest earners chilling out in the players lounge while the reserves fight for promotion.

You say fickle fans and your right, we have some of the worst fans. You get on here and defend these players but go to games and sit there quietly, no support for the team on the pitch when their playing. It's ridiculous!

As far as I could see there was no trialist playing for Forest last night. However why was Walker a centre forward playing right back last night. This is the second match running where Forest under 21's have been stuffed at the City Ground. I do not think Gilligan has the necessary experience to manage the under 21's who are the players of the future. Perhaps he should have stayed at Nike, and got Paul Hart to return to Forest.

Think the Trialist is still Todorov as not sure he has actually signed for Forest yet but didn't come on last night. Believe Walker has played Right Back a few times as well Centre Forward for both U18 and U21. I like Gilligan and he has brought a few good youngsters with him from the Nike Academy (like Jorge Grant and I believe also Oliver Burke who is impressing SP). Yes winning is nice but the U21 is the stepping stone for the U18 to progress to first team, remember Walker, Grant and Oliver Burke are U18 still

Todorov is shown on the Internet as a member of the under 21 squad. Burke did not come from the Nike Academy and has been at Forest since he was 8.

I'm sure something will be sorted out. SP has said Hunty is desperate to join so why would palace stop him if decent money is on the table. My educated guess is that palace will have put a price tag of around 3m on him now.

They have probably had interest from other clubs therefor they will put a bigger price tag on him to see who will pay it. there trying to scare us into paying it.

No he doesn't. we can just loan another rb from the prem. you can't just say well we need to pay it because we need him. that's what drives prices up on players. clubs put silly prices on them and clubs pay them. stand our ground and say this is what we offered and it's staying at that. if they don't accept then let someone else pay over the odds.

Managers very very rarely have a say in the price for a player, so I expect Jordan (think he's still their chairman) as obviously seen how well he's playing at Forest and upped the price. Lichaj is naturally a right back so SP won't have any worries with placing him there if Hunt does go back to Palace in January but I expect a fee will be agreed before then.

Would like to see Harding given a go at left back. Lichaj/Hunt at RB & Harding at LB looks a better balance to me. Plus Harding got things moving down that left side when he came on on Sunday. Needs rewarding with a starting place to keep his confidence up.

I suspect it's desperation to get an affordable and proven creative player in to supply the forwards. Each time Reid gets injured we get into a cycle of drawing-or, last season, losing. We can't afford to depend so much on one player-especially at his age. Who else is out there?

Guedioura. Knows the club, better than what we have. The risk is taken out of this one, because we know what he can do. On his day he's a Rolls Royce with an eye for a pass. he would feed Assombalonga all day long. Rather him than Commons.

I've only heard Pearce say good thing about Lichaj's attitude and the positive affect it has on the rest of the squad (he usually dumps him in with 'the cohens and the reids' et al).

This doesn't sound like the actions of a such a person and, really, if a player wants to run away at the first sign that his position was under threat - rather than stop and fight for his place - then why would you even want him in the squad?

Jack hunt has already spoke about his desire to extend his stay beyond January and warnock will want some funds to make his mark on the team. I reckon if hunt wants to come to us then we will get him. No clubs like to keep players that want to leave. Hopefully pick him up for about 1. 5-1.8m. Better yet, extend his loan to summer as we want to see what league we are in next year before buying loads of players.

Perks - putting a not match fit Vaughan into the starting line up isn't the best idea seating as he keeps getting injured it's best to use him sparingly till he a fully match fit rather than over doing this when not match fit. 4-4-2 with tesche and Lansbury in cm and pato and Antonio on the wings and Britt and Lars up front.

uptheforest uptheforest

Tesche has been great its true. But he is in the Vaughan mould. A fine possession player, tidy and efficient but not the bundle of energy and robust tackling that Cohen is. In this division you need an enforcer and, while I've loved our start we haven't always played a short passing possession game. We play with energy, width, pace, directness and counter attacking flair. Moves are swiftly put together and hit hard and fast. I hated Guediora in the holding role (lack of discipline and rash) but as an all action presence he wouldn't be a bad addition. I'd still rather look elsewhere though!

We have first option for buy back. That's what the clause says. Effectively the terms of sell on fee would reduce any amount we have to pay. Interest would be added only to the transfers.

Can I endorse that good luck message to Greg and hope the same goes to Collins when he gets a move. SOD brought both in at a time when a squad needed hasty assembling and the choice was narrow. I don't think he or we ever expected either to be players to take us into the prem. But they have been good, solid pros, who have seen us through tough patches and neither ever gave less than their best or showed anything but support for the club. Good luck!

I disagree. Halford didn't give no where near his best towards the back end of last season, he gave up. Much like most other players. Still, he has, on the main been a good pro and put in a lot of solid performances. Collins has been quite been the defender we expected.

GazzaRed

(2)

I think Halford was a good player for us, he is obviously a passionate player however his problem in my opinion was that he used to commit too many fouls, got irritated at other team mates too often and tended to be a little lazy towards the end of games.

Having said that I really cannot fault him for the roles he played and his versatility. I honestly think he would be great at a team who would play him in his one position consistently. GOOD LUCK GREG!

OMRIFTT

If he goes then wish all the best, he might not have been at his best at the end of the season (who was) but he gave 110% every game whatever position he played in. Just hope he gets a position and is allowed to stick to it, playing if every position is not good for a player as suggest you're not quite good enough for 1 position but okay for several which affects confidence.

Greg has had a niggling injury for the past 6 months which explains his dip in form towards the end of last season.

If we can't shift him we should try and get him training with the first team to see how he reacts and if it's positive get him more involved as it's a lot of wages to be paying for him to be out of the squad, may as well get some use out of him. pearce will sort his head out and get him playing. its hard to sell a player that doesn't play who is on massive wages. play him in the cup or something.

I agree that he's too expensive not to play.

I think gentle reintegration with the new team and allow him to earn his place. Surely some games in the reserves to get his fitness up and then in to the 1st team if, AND ONLY IF, he deserves it with both ability and attitude.

Failing that, we'll have a player that is short of match fitness that we're paying a fortune to that we want to sell/move on but isn't in the shop window.

He needs to play, showcase his ability in order to engineer that move away. It's galling to say it after everything I've heard from Ed but the lad needs to be on the pitch in order for us to move him on.

Half a season of good performances as a league sub or cup starter could see us rid by February.
