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

The blame for the goal sits clearly with cash from where I was sitting


1.) 09 Dec 2018 09:47:43
It wouldn't of mattered who's fault it was if we had buried are chances everyone as games like that even man city and I'm sure we will have a few more by the end of the season the thing we need to do now is pick our self's up and get a win at the sheep's and just keep us in that top 6 come January that way when transfer window opens we will have quality players wanting to come to us so we can move on in the second part of the season

2.) 09 Dec 2018 10:02:51
An excellent point pal. Should’ve been out of site

3.) 09 Dec 2018 10:05:31
Unless it wasn't Pantillimon

4.) 09 Dec 2018 10:24:26
Perks lol I'm sorry if you or anyone else don't like it but the guy is crap like I said before the Preston game the defence as kept him in clean sheets now with the injuries in defence he will be found out and he was it's that simple sooner January comes the better he needs to be the first to be replaced

5.) 09 Dec 2018 10:39:52
But he won't be replaced so get over it

6.) 09 Dec 2018 11:17:16
And that's the sad thing perks,he needs replacing,but the manager can't see it.
He had nothing to do again yesterday except kick the ball and he was woefull at it.
I liked the way he's on one knee for their goal,that was going to stop it going in.
Entertaining first half some nice stuff played and chances created not taken.
At least we got easy games over Xmas sheep Norwich Leeds,wouldn't be surprised if we won those three,it's the sides who come here and are organised when we struggle,just can't break them down.

7.) 09 Dec 2018 11:29:46
Or maybe he can see it 79 but can't do anything until transfer window opens.

8.) 09 Dec 2018 11:33:46
Perks lol is it that time of month for you 😁 come January the weakest link will be removed goodbye pants 😁😂

9.) 09 Dec 2018 11:57:38
Skegsjay, Does that mean our manager will be wearing jog bottoms as it will be chilly in January without any Pants. 😁

10.) 09 Dec 2018 11:58:54
No Skeg I don't just sing when when winning unlike you.

11.) 09 Dec 2018 12:41:19
Lol perks how do you work that out been a loyal fan 40 years through thick and thin and there's not been a awful lot of singing to be done in the last 10 any way cheer up grab a beer it's nearly Xmas we can celebrate a new keeper coming in 😁

12.) 09 Dec 2018 18:05:53
Karanka bent over backwards to get pants in the summer,so I don't see him being replaced unfortunately



08 Dec 2018 18:27:35
We looked worse with a 442. I have to say guys I’m stunned at how quickly the criticism starts. On another day they’d have been buried at half time. We’re never going to win every game and luck was with Preston no doubt today.


1.) 08 Dec 2018 18:35:43
Bad day at office 2star but that's this league if we can stay top 6 come January we will be fine



25 Nov 2018 19:03:50
Villa will be a very big test for us now. A very very good squad but more importantly we seem to struggle against Dean Smith’s sides.


1.) 25 Nov 2018 19:35:57
1nil win 2 star to be honest I'm more worried about Ipswich they didn't deserve to lose the other day they was battling for everything and I think there turning a corner they looked good coming forward without scoring and missed quite a few chances I hope when we play them we don't sit back to much anyway ureddssss onwards and upwards

2.) 26 Nov 2018 02:31:49
i think this is where our squad comes into play, i'd play same 11 against villa then change a few for the Ipswich game, don't know which villa we will see on Wednesday, will they be tired? and we've had an extra days rest an they had a big derby game, think we can start to be positive though which is a good thing.

3.) 26 Nov 2018 07:53:32
Who would you rest? We've already seen against Burton that the likes of Heff janko goncalves aren't good enough to start.

4.) 26 Nov 2018 08:01:23
Big mistake resting players for Ipswich game thinking it's going to be a easy game

5.) 26 Nov 2018 08:41:20
Well what do you know our very own henri lansbury is injured again and won't play against us surprise surprise since he left us if memory serves me he has not played against us either injured or suspended strange that!

6.) 26 Nov 2018 10:46:00
I didn’t mean rest the whole team an certainly don’t take Ipswich lightly I’d probably rest grabs for Karim, think cash an carvalho aswell not sure who would come in for them maybe Osborn an Appiah but he will prob go Dias, certainly keep the back 4 an Yacob n colback

7.) 26 Nov 2018 11:28:06
Don't rest anybody.

If i was a player in our side at the moment i would want to play every game.Unless you pick up an injury 3 days should be long enough for a prossenfial athlete to recover to play for 90 minutes!

We are on a roll at the moment defence solid Yacob and Colback best 2 dcm players in the championship atm.

Cash, Lolley and Carvaleo gelling well and Grabban scoring for fun!

If it's not broke don't fix it

8.) 26 Nov 2018 12:06:32
Why such negativity around Lansbury? The lad did well for us in a very very poor team. Give him a break FFS!

9.) 26 Nov 2018 12:14:04
Exactly munmad,be a mistake to change the side and never rest a striker when he's on a hot streak.
Think he'll play same side for both games barring injuries.
Villa certainly won't make changes,Smith likes a settled side.

10.) 26 Nov 2018 12:49:50
Rest players they have had an international break players often say games are better than training let's keep this momentum going !!💪💪

11.) 26 Nov 2018 13:12:14
2star sorry mate henri was an overrated show pony turned up now and again usually on tv , he had ability and nothing personal against him but has never turned it on anywhere with any consistency,

12.) 26 Nov 2018 14:29:15
I agree he was overrated but I doubt whether he set his own rating. He isn’t a world beater and can’t remener him ever indicating that he thought otherwise. He’s a £2m player at best, what did we expect from a £2m player that we didn’t get? I personally thought he performed well with in expectation of someone who hasn’t exactly commanded a big fee during his career.

13.) 26 Nov 2018 14:41:44
He was good at taking our corners though 😱😱😱

14.) 26 Nov 2018 20:18:26
There’s a lot of games from now till new year so players will have to be rested (forward ones)

15.) 27 Nov 2018 12:18:26
I have always been an advocate of starting with the strongest eleven available.Get the upper hand in the game where possible and then (and only then) "rest" players if necessary.This can also serve as an opportunity to give fringe players a run out and try to prove a point to the gaffer. Simples!



24 Nov 2018 20:43:14
Said on here weeks ago that Colback and yacob should play together. Colaback playing advanced is far more effective than guedioura- far better passer of the ball. Sorry geddy, love you too bits pal but they have they edge on you.


1.) 24 Nov 2018 21:36:03
Got to say dawson was immense today never missed a thing against a poor hull side everything positive as always great support i felt sorry for eric i bet he was still with us

2.) 24 Nov 2018 21:46:48
After watching today Jacob is in a class of his own,best midfielder I've seen at this club for a long time.

3.) 24 Nov 2018 23:04:34
Was thinking the same thing today about Yacoub. Pinhead McGovern in his pomp?

4.) 25 Nov 2018 14:41:10
I thought and said that he was immense on his debut.I hoped it would continue.It certainly did yesterday.And yes,if there were any doubts,him and Colback can play together.



24 Nov 2018 16:14:19
Has anyone got a pair of football boots on them ? If so please lend them to cash!


1.) 24 Nov 2018 19:56:44
He'd be a world beater if he stayed on his feet!
Carvalho is getting better and better. I just love his work ethic and chasing down in between playing some less talented lads into great scoring positions!

Well if he is and has just started doing it recently I suggest he carries on.
Secondly the team picks its self with a little rotation as you’d expect.
Have you ever thought that perhaps Karanka is frustrated with Dawson’s injury ? Just as we get some consistency we lose a very key player that quite frankly we have no replacement for. Before any one wades in with the Joe Worrall sermon he is not a replacement for Dawson yet.

If the owners strategy is to sell academy players to buy high quality championship players then he will be sold. The only defence I can offer of it is that when was the last time we produced a world beater. We keep hoping that they will all be world beaters but it doesn’t really turn out that way does it? I think if they were that promising they maybe wouldn’t be in our academy in the first place? The evidence appears to suggest that it’s unlikely that we have a world beater on our hands. Tough call glad I’m not making it as it’s hard to keep everyone happy all of the time.

Get Lee Camp back, best keeper we’ve had in years
