I seem to remember when we were in the middle of our financial difficulties, Mel Morris took delight in pretending to have interest in a couple of our players. I would find it rather amusing now if we were to slip a cheeky bid in for any of their better players! I'm sure Mel would appreciate the gesture!

It would be funny Murdoch.Theres probably only Lawrence I'd be interested in to be fair.


2.) 24 May 2018 09:17:15
Not vydra?


3.) 24 May 2018 09:57:51
He's probably off to Stoke but yes he'd be worth a go.

It has been an interesting week reading everyone's opinions on our current and past Managers. I do have a question for you all, and would be interested to see the responses. From our current starting 11, how many, if any would walk straight into one of the teams currently in the top 6? I would say none, and it kind of highlights the gap of where we are now, and where we want to be.

Think your right there murdoch,but then if you were to look at Millwall team man for man,then it could be argued we have better individuals than them?
It's not necessarily the best players that make a good team it's how they gel and how confident they are in there own ability and confidence in their teammates and the ability of the manager to get the best best out of each player.


2.) 13 Apr 2018 15:01:29
Agreed FF.
Afraid I agree with you too Murdoch. A couple might make squad players. Toby and possibly Lolly.


3.) 13 Apr 2018 15:27:43
Maybe Pants ? !


4.) 13 Apr 2018 20:18:38
Yes the manager is the key, what a job Harris has done . Despite an embarrassing quantity of attempts we can’t get it right can we?


5.) 13 Apr 2018 20:49:10
Thing is 2 star if you look at the table at the start of January they were a place below us.
Just shows what a great job Harris has done


6.) 13 Apr 2018 21:06:25
I'd say Watson plenty of experience and there is always room for a solid defensive midfielder


7.) 13 Apr 2018 22:04:55
Interesting that so few names offered up here. Reality is a high mid table finish next season would be improvement! I agree with the Millwall comment. Team spirit, and playing for each other makes a big difference. The other issue for us is we haven't had a decent spine of a team to build around for years.


8.) 13 Apr 2018 23:03:59
Reality for us is one thing the owners will want more than that I'm afraid.
You can see that in the signings,it's old pros with no thought for the future.
Personally I'd rather watch us build something and do well for a couple of seasons and get there with a sound base to keep us there.
No point getting there to get stuffed week in and out


9.) 13 Apr 2018 23:11:52
Millwall captain Morrison was on the radio the other night. His main reasons for success this season if I remember right was team spirit,their style of play,being a new team to the league,other teams not knowing much about them and low wages stating some championship players are on astronomical amounts compared to them.

Well, I enjoyed going to work this morning, and not getting the knowing looks about not mentioning the football, or having people commiserating with you. This result has really put us on the map again, and people talking about how well we played and what a result it was! I was a proud Forest fan this morning, and hopefully this could be a turning point I our fortunes!

Murdoch

1.) 08 Jan 2018 16:22:57
Same here mate. I walked in this morning. arms aloft!!! Boy it felt good!!! Hopefully I can do that a few more times this season FTID!!!

One thing I really don't get is why are we conceding so many early goals? Are the players really not switched on from the start of the game? Is it a protest from the players about MW's tactics, so concede a soft goal to give him the message? You would have thought, or hoped MW would have them fired up comming straight from the dressing room? I'd also like to know why MW rates Walker more than Vellios? Walker is one player I'd be happy to see MW convert to a winger, as he may have more success than being a centre forward.

What about Brereton as well. His progress at Forest has gone backwards.Played out of position or not at all.
Zac Clough, 3.5 million, scored for fun at Bolton and think most fans excited about him signing. Gone backwards. Joe Worrall, like Brereton breaks into first team,awesome. Now gone backwards.Why?


2.) 16 Oct 2017 17:23:09
Brereton been very disappointing this season not seen much of Zach but I was excited at his signing and velios should now be given a chance up front because were missing a poacher I just hope things get better.


3.) 16 Oct 2017 19:02:32
Velios is a much better player than the strikeforce we put out. Butvits warburtons way or no way!!!!


 

 

19 May 2016 20:43:56
As Leicester is very much the in word at the moment, does anyone have any thoughts on players we could be bin robbing from the teams that went down? Zach Clough I think could do a job for us, and chips in with goals?

Murdoch

1.) 19 May 2016 21:13:57
Injury prone.


2.) 19 May 2016 21:45:01
Would be right at home with us then! Sorry, couldn't resist that one!


3.) 19 May 2016 23:19:09
Johann Berg Gudmundsson from Charlton.
Goalscoring midfielder. Would be useful.


4.) 20 May 2016 01:37:03
And he would be good for shirrt sales you would have to pay a ssmall fortune for his name on a shirt.


5.) 20 May 2016 13:36:39
He wasn't very useful to Charlton eh Fred?


6.) 20 May 2016 15:13:31
Haha IBM. Been waiting for that reply for over 12 hours and knew it would come lol!
One man doesn't make a team.
He scored more than any of our midfielders and i've always thought he wad a good player (very good at free kicks) and wouldn't mind seeing him in a Forest shirt.


7.) 20 May 2016 15:34:07
Then I will trust your excellent judgement Fred 😳.

Lam was more of an attacking threat than defensive. He also had a decent shot on him. He may have a future as a midfield player. Skeg needs to take him on a night out or two so he can bulk up a bit on the amber gold!

To add to this, AK said in an interview that he told a group of players they were not in his plans for next season, so were free to move on. This group is now training separately from the first team, as no effort to move was made. So, as someone said above, these guys look likely to sit out their contracts unless an offer comes in. Players in that group were Ward, Cummings, Velios, etc.

Sorry lads, but I have to disagree with you all here. Abdoun, djebour and Lars all looked poor on youtube, and indeed they were not good enough. Some of you have put Soudani on a pedestal, but in my opinion he's the same standard as Cummings. Some of his goals are just comical with defenders just stood watching him walk past, and poor goal keeping. That's not going to happen in the Championship! I'm not slating him, and would love it if he did tear up the league. All I'm saying expectation level is way over for him.

I hate to say this, but I watched a couple of his youtube clips last night, and wasn't that impressed. He may have scored a lot of goals, but when you look at the standard of what he was playing against, it was very very poor. He won't get the time and space to play like he does in the championship. I hope I'm wrong, but I think he will struggle at this level.

From what I have read, there is interest from us, but he's not in the top 3 of our targets. If those don't come off, then we could go after him. I also saw a good stat about him that the majority of his goals are scored inside the box. I can't see that type of player fitting our lone striker formation.

I think if Benny added more goals to his game, a lot of fans would give him a break. Also, you have to take into account his more defensive roles, which make it harder to score.

Yes agreed. I have always thought Kasper Schmeichel was over rated, he's certainly not as good as his father! Drinkwater also overachieved in one season, got his move, and will no doubt sit out his contract on big money. Not that you can blame him for that.

More importantly though James, did he give us a wow factor last time, and do we really need him? For me the answer is no to both, would rather see Bridcut in that role.

You also have to consider the half of the draw England came through. Had we finished top of that group, I'm not sure they would have made it to a semi final. The first real test was against Croatia, and they failed. I can't see us beating Belgium for 3rd spot. For me, they over achieved, and luck of the draw, is the true reality.

Wasn't it only our fans that wanted to sign both these players? From what I understand they made an enquiry about Marriot, but didn't take it further. Grabban and Bamford were always the targets.
