Fawaz is trying to buy Charlton


1.) 12 Sep 2018 22:47:46
Knowing our luck he'll be succesfull and get them to the prem,🙄🙄

2.) 12 Sep 2018 23:26:25
Which one, bobby or jackie?

3.) 13 Sep 2018 00:08:29
I hope this isn’t true

4.) 13 Sep 2018 00:23:54
He shouldn’t be allowed to buy a bag of crisps in this country let alone another football club

5.) 13 Sep 2018 01:04:18
Why are you getting worried?

6.) 13 Sep 2018 07:36:11
For footballs sake (ffs) and would you want another set of fans to go through that?

7.) 13 Sep 2018 09:09:37
Usmanov-think that's how it's spell it is apparently interested in Charlton,can't see fawaw passing another fit and proper owner test.

8.) 13 Sep 2018 09:22:37
New job for King Billy on the cards😆

9.) 13 Sep 2018 13:21:59
Why is he coming back ,3rd time lucky!

10.) 13 Sep 2018 16:17:54
The Forest club shop has just had a major sales windfall. Fawaz and his Bank Balance were spotted sneaking out the service bay with boxes of Fawaz sponsored Forest shirts bound for The Valley as part payment for the club!



10 Aug 2018 22:59:13
Hopefully Karanka has seen that Darikwa and Benny are the weak links at full back in the first two outings. If we are to improve them it is surely ta ta benny and ta ta darikwa


1.) 11 Aug 2018 01:01:15
Weak link if any has been not been capatilising on our chances and dominance. Darikwa i agree has been our worst player, hesitant and gives the ball away. But benny is solid as he is always. Say ta ta to our player of the season last season have a word.

2.) 11 Aug 2018 04:38:14
Dont get why you are so down on Osborn. Terrific little player wherever he plays.

3.) 11 Aug 2018 07:51:32
Benny is no leftback. Always gives it his all but falls over too much and makes poor decisions. He was runing back to the goal line instead of attacking the danger when wba scored. Darikwa just not a rightback either. When you play 3 5 2 you might get away with these 2 but in a back four not a chance. Why is Robinson not playing???.

4.) 11 Aug 2018 08:15:37
Spot on Rutland, Osborn puts in a shift but he isn't a left back, he runs round like a little terrier snapping at people's heals but all to often gets found out of position. Is the old debate around, what position is his position? Most people will say attacking mid but as you will see as the season goes on when the Portuguese lads start to gel, he ain't much good at that either. Work rate 110%, substance very much lacking.

5.) 11 Aug 2018 08:46:47
Shows how dreadful we were last season for Osborn to win player of the season. Excellent point made about not taking chances. however , all successful teams need to also defend narrow leads which we are incapable of doing. I’m not sure what game you are watching if you can’t see That Osborn and darikwa are the weak links at full back, which doesn’t make Osborn a bad player by the way , it just means he’s no fullback. Whether there is a place for hi. In the team elsewhere nowadays is a seperate debate altogether. Like Brereton and Worral we may find benny is only going to be third choice this season.

6.) 11 Aug 2018 11:24:23
Not sure all the criticism of the full backs is warranted to be honest after just two games against two sides that have the potential to finish in the top 6 all players need a number of games under their belt before they hit top form

7.) 11 Aug 2018 12:09:28
Redmarsh - he played at lb for much of last season and he hasn't adapted to the position through the summer, still the same frailties.

8.) 11 Aug 2018 14:05:56
Far too much nonsense has been going on over the last 2-3 years regarding Benny. He's one of our best players, but I guess these people just don't want to give up.

9.) 11 Aug 2018 14:46:15
Well bsered this will be the season where both veiws are put to the sword - we really will find out if Osborn is the player we think he is now we have some better ones than before .



07 Aug 2018 22:29:49
Get rid of lolley, darikwa and Osborn and we’ve got a team. Shows how far we’ve come for lolley to look so poor. Some of the old frailties still there.


1.) 08 Aug 2018 00:34:31
What are you talking about lol that was a fantastic performance from everyone

2.) 08 Aug 2018 06:18:05
Lolly one of our better players, find it strange you would say that and Osborne has linked up very well with the Portuguese lads. In fact everybody seems to have raised their game. I wanted to get rid of Guedioura last season, look at him now!

3.) 08 Aug 2018 06:36:50
Lolley was fantastic, he just looked like he was lacking confidence in front of goal. I can understand however why AK wants another right back, he gave the ball away a lot. He's good on the counter attack but that's about it.

4.) 08 Aug 2018 06:55:52
Lolley played well. Agree about the right back though.

5.) 08 Aug 2018 07:37:30
Seriously need new right back! Why we let lichaj go and keep him is beyond me, good overall performance let down by darikwa. Gave the ball away to many times and can't make a decision when on the ball also afraid to take players on

6.) 08 Aug 2018 08:12:25
Our full backs looked like our weakest areas but we covered well. Darikwa just seemed to lose his head and composure.

7.) 08 Aug 2018 08:48:57
To me Darikwa just looks really nervous when the ball comes to him, and it makes me nervous watching him. I feel like he's going to give the ball away every time he gets it.

8.) 08 Aug 2018 09:01:20
I have to say I was very impressed with the performance last night,the result was unfair on us.
When was the last time forest played football with intent?
The results will come if we continue to play like that :)

9.) 08 Aug 2018 11:17:59
Spot on 2star. Those 2 as fullbacks simply woefull

10.) 08 Aug 2018 14:26:16
We showed signs of improvement over last season nice to see players able to dribble the ball movement looked after only problem is same problem as last year can't defend crosses and scoring goals we had enough chance to be 3 up by half him

11.) 08 Aug 2018 15:05:09
Byram will be our right back soon and Robinson will be left back if karanka continues with 4 at back. If not then back 3 of Dawson fig fox

12.) 08 Aug 2018 20:55:36
Lolley lacked the ability to be effective in the final third four times last night . Caught in 3 minds and failed to make the right call in very strong positions.



13 Jun 2018 23:11:54
Outgoings absolutely inevitable to fund the incomings.
Osborn, Worrall, clough, Walker grant, McKay, vellios, Cummings will all be sacrificed - maybe more.

I think we will keep Brereton and Yates


1.) 14 Jun 2018 07:22:12
All be sacrificed?? 😂 I don’t generally like to knock players but that’s no great loss??? I would like to have seen more of Clough though

2.) 14 Jun 2018 08:11:57
Keep Worrall to learn from Dawson and AK,sell the rest imo

3.) 14 Jun 2018 08:50:59
Want to see more of Cummings and why get rid of Grant? He was brilliant at Notts and hasn't had a chance yet!

4.) 14 Jun 2018 09:52:03
I would like to keep Osborn and Worrall as well as Brereton and Yates. The others can go as soon as!!

5.) 14 Jun 2018 12:37:26
Worrall is a must keep!

Everything a C half should be and a future England captain. No brainer because he can step in at any point and do a very solid job.He always puts his body on the line and fights for the team.

How many of our young homegrown players can you say that about?

Osbourne, Worrall, cash and that's about it currently.

Certainly not BB! If we got a 10 million offer for BB I'd take it in a heartbeat. Don't think there is much chance of that happening after squandering his chances last season and learning the art of playing at swan lake.

I'd try to hang on to those three and strip the rest to bare bones to pay for the incoming new first team.

Be ruthless and get rid of the young players who have been out on loan perhaps with the exception of Walker who looks lively and has great ties to the club.
Grant not good enough! Would think about keeping Yates if he shows massive progress in pre season.
This season is about getting to the Prem and we need to go all out with all resources or we will fail!

We know who the good players are!

Smith (back up)

Watson (just about)

Guediora if he can recapture his form because let's not forget he'd been out for about 2 years prior to rejoining.
Looked nothing like the player of old but I think he deserves a chance because of his passion and physicality. He knows how to control a game late on.

And that's about it apart from a few squad players.

That's 11 players so we need another 11 to be top three material.

We need two strikers!
Two wingers
A left back
Two centre midfield
A first choice goalkeeper

As far as I'm concerned the rest of the players can leave or be prepared to fight for a chance on the bench.

Sell Mance, Murphy, Darikwa, Mckay, Brereton, Traore, Vellios, Clough, Cummings.

I make that about 18 million if you get 10M for Brereton.

Loan out or release Ward, Kapino, Evtimov, Henderson, Fuentes, Bouch, Lam, Ariyibi.
With the exception of Ward (who I really like) they have been proven not good enough.

6.) 14 Jun 2018 13:18:24
And before I get called out for saying Lichaj is good please remember that "good" does not mean skilful?

Good, to me, is a player who consistently performs to a high level everytime he is picked, no matter if they have been playing regularly or not.

If they are a good pro and fabulous ambassador then they should be cherished not shown the door.

Tomlin is a good player but I wouldn't sign him. Why? Because you just don't know what you're going to get. Level of performance should not depend on the mood he turns up in or how many pies got smashed in the pub with the lads.

All I know is that there is nothing wrong with the clubs money on wage day! Why should the players performance be any less consistent?

7.) 14 Jun 2018 13:45:05
Anything else you'd like to add no22😦

8.) 14 Jun 2018 14:14:43
Agree with that no 22 tomlin has got an attitude problem.
Plus a pie and chips one

9.) 14 Jun 2018 17:11:57
How do we know what any players attitude is like?

10.) 14 Jun 2018 17:12:30
Hope we don't sign any more players with an altitude problem😲

11.) 14 Jun 2018 18:57:22
His attitude is I'm great and don't need to work on fitness???
It shows if you watch.

12.) 14 Jun 2018 19:42:44
10 million for brereton?? Ha ha what, rupees?

13.) 14 Jun 2018 21:41:42
Karanka rates him so get used to watching him.

14.) 14 Jun 2018 23:04:02
Our best players were fat lads who had no issues with their fitness despite their build.As for attitude they all had a winning attitude which raised everyone else's game!



10 Mar 2018 18:42:29
Armand Traore injured, Tyler walker not in squad at Bolton, clough warning the bench at Bolton and Mills not in the Barnsley team . Two words to say to AK. well done!


1.) 10 Mar 2018 21:38:58
The amazing thing is that there are Forest fans who still rate them? But then they are still in the Warbo camp?
I still think Wing Nut will come good for the money we paid once we have a competitive team next season?
Agreed well done AK

2.) 10 Mar 2018 22:16:13
Ear Ear !

3.) 10 Mar 2018 22:26:24
I with you on that Red. Still think Clough is a good player but never given a run of games under Warbo especially in the Tomlin/Dowell role.Another player Warbo used to like playing out of position.

4.) 10 Mar 2018 22:33:04
By wing nut you mean ZC ?

5.) 10 Mar 2018 22:57:09
Big ears will look better alongside a big noddy?😉

6.) 11 Mar 2018 01:08:28
Agree on Clough like many players he was played out of position dropped after times he played well and lost confidence under MW. Last season he was quality when he came in and scored some important goals if he can get come back in summer to a confident squad with better and wiser players and a good captain like Watson to help guide him he can still come good as is still young and if Tomlin doesn’t join us once Dowell leaves he could get his chance to shine next season in the number 10 role.
Still think Walker may have a future if he can put some muscle on as looked ok in the odd games but every season he has failed to improve since he first stepped up to first team it looks more like his level may be league 1/2 but still think we could give him another few seasons to see before writing him off completely. Mills was well past it and Traoure was inconsistent and trouble. Glad they are gone. Hope AK shifts a few more (Hobbs, Vaughan, Bouchalakis, Ward and Traoure permanently and even maybe McKay and Manchienne) in summer.

7.) 11 Mar 2018 01:49:52
Murphy 79?

8.) 11 Mar 2018 08:51:16
Bouchalakis ! I forgot about him! Yes bye mancienne for me too.

9.) 11 Mar 2018 12:36:27
Tyler Walker is the best finisher we have and would even be a good option today in my opinion (better than Murphy on current form).

If we can get £2M back for Clough great. Clough is decent but we need players capable of staying with us and growing if we are promoted and I doubt he is that level.

10.) 11 Mar 2018 17:42:40
Shame we didn't have sometrhing extra in attack. Vellios is NOT the answer. Sorry but it is the truth

I think our defence got found out a bit today. Dreadfully weak at balls into the box. A winnable game I thought today - oh well.


1.) 20 Oct 2018 20:22:01
We could of done with a big goalkeeper 😏

2.) 20 Oct 2018 20:54:32
We could have done with some defenders

3.) 20 Oct 2018 21:04:55
We had good defenders on the bench.
Robinson must share some of the blame today silly to be sent off in the last game and leave us short in the box.
I prefer Janko to Darikwa any day.

4.) 20 Oct 2018 21:06:30
Do we have a goalkeeping coach?
Haven't seen much evidence of it.

5.) 20 Oct 2018 21:15:34
We don't have a goalkeeper,just a static plank who gives no confidence to the team.
When karanka says the fans weren't there when needed, well he doesn't help with his poor distribution and a total lack of controlling his area.
Worst goalkeeper I've ever seen at this club.

6.) 20 Oct 2018 21:17:10
You couldn't coach that plank Carlo.

7.) 20 Oct 2018 22:12:39
Is he the scapegoat for this week then?

8.) 20 Oct 2018 22:23:24
2 star I think Dawson was required at some point today.

9.) 20 Oct 2018 23:43:32
Think Hefele was poor today as he was against Milwall.
Figereido should e bought back in

10.) 21 Oct 2018 01:03:43
Whenever Dawson is fit he should get into that team

11.) 21 Oct 2018 09:18:03
I would agree chugs , heffele let's the man get in front of him and boxer shorts is rooted to his line. - a recipe for success for Norwich which they executed perfectly. Big well done to their fans as well - excellent support, top club in my eyes.



20 Oct 2018 20:16:19
What has Karanka said about the fans?


1.) 20 Oct 2018 20:33:14
He said I miss the Middlesbrough fans they was so nice to me 😝

2.) 20 Oct 2018 20:48:03
Something about fickle I think and that same fans were kissing his arse 2 weeks before.Something like that anyway 😂

3.) 20 Oct 2018 20:59:51
Something about book reading or knitting during matches and taken naps not helpful to the team apparently the near 1/2 million or so in ticket sales and a full house wasn't enough and those fickle fans should be making noise after watching dross again ( apart from first 20 minutes). Appears the players are stressed as We are such demanding fans wish I was stressed on 10 thousand plus aweek. Oh well onwards and upwards bring on Bolton 3 points please 😁😁😁.

4.) 20 Oct 2018 22:20:54
Nobody forces anybody to do anything. If they are that crap don't go next time. It's that simple 👏🏻

5.) 21 Oct 2018 10:18:59
Perks is that your case for the defence? Basically if you don’t like it lump it lol , I ain’t made my mind up on Ak totally but one thing I do know insulting your customers in any business is a recipe for disaster, if the players can’t handle big expectant crowds they are in the wrong business,



20 Oct 2018 19:32:50
Top six taking shape now, I think 4 of the teams in there now will be in there come May.


1.) 20 Oct 2018 19:55:30
Im a believer in the cliche of where teams are after the Xmas games is the biggest guide to where teams are likely to be seasons end, there is usually a team that sneaks into the play offs though. Teams are still trying to find consistency at the moment.

2.) 20 Oct 2018 20:14:56
I'm a believer in if you don't win your home games,then you won't get anywhere,
Two holding midfielders dowesnt help.🤔

3.) 20 Oct 2018 20:44:29
Sent packing, I agree.



20 Oct 2018 17:05:51
No doubt it’s Watson and colbacks fault !


1.) 20 Oct 2018 17:19:23
Not their fault
The managers for picking them in the same team

2.) 20 Oct 2018 17:21:58
Shouldn't play in home games together,not required,should take the game to the opposition

3.) 20 Oct 2018 17:47:23
Agree why not 2 UP FRONT AHHHHGGGGG. Just too inconsistent at the moment its a shame fantastic crowd aswell would have been nice if they went home buzzing. Like it was mentioned previously need that feeling of expecting to win or at least take the opposition to the cleaners performance wise rather than unsure wat team will turn up. Beat Boro away lose to Norwich at home with the opposite of performances crazy. Season settling now so need to see a few wins on the spin if we wanna maintain a chance of top 6. Will here the usual excuses about how hurt players feel but got to get over that now and show us how gud they can be.



06 Oct 2018 16:41:39
Looks like our man Aitor has got these tactics spot on today


1.) 06 Oct 2018 16:46:40
Brilliant!!! Brilliant!! Brilliant!!!

2.) 06 Oct 2018 16:58:17
Like I said the other day, we would probably go and beat Middlesbrough, the joys of being a Forest fan.

3.) 06 Oct 2018 16:59:17
yeah, but 79 will still say we were lucky:)

Well played Forest, fantastic result, keep it going!!

Good post skeg. Decisions yesterday lacked Decisiveness across the board. The goal keeper and the defence lack faith in each other and the goals we concede show a total lack of telepathy between them (an essential trait for success). We looked ok for ten mins early doors, thereafter Norwich unpicked us slowly but surely, a bit of master class really with goals scored at excellent times. Karanka’s take note please.

He will score in the right team but we don’t seem to create typical, traditional goal scorer chances. He’ll do ok though and I for one wish him well he worked hard for the team Carlo, I know you like to see youngsters given a chance but I think his run of games last season convinced Karanka that a different type of player was needed. I think there are a couple coming through that will prosper though mate .
