Formal offer has made to Daniel Podence.

Portuguese Messi

2.) 27 Jun 2018 13:12:02
Who ?. Get Marriott in and get in done and offload Grant if need be

3.) 27 Jun 2018 13:37:30
Marriott is way overpriced just like bambi.
Let some other club take the risk.

4.) 27 Jun 2018 13:44:19
Getting a feeling that Marriott isn't what AK is looking for,I think a proven goalscorer at this level,fingers crossed for grabben

5.) 27 Jun 2018 14:19:25
Soudani medical Friday.
Grabbon hopefully but we defo need another central midfielder. We got Watson bridgcutt.
Geddy not good enough osbourne cash can do a job there but little light weight.
Clayton needs signing. No more overseas players
Got enough. we need championship/prem experience

6.) 27 Jun 2018 14:26:02
Anyone heard anything on Robles?

7.) 27 Jun 2018 14:36:47
Mo Besic please

8.) 27 Jun 2018 15:49:03
Haven't we reached capacity in midfield yet?

9.) 27 Jun 2018 17:20:27
Capacity? Nonsense. Yes we need to sell/loan players. But what do you want the management to do if a better player than we have becomes availably. Bring him in and remove a weaker player or keep the weaker squad?

That is how you strengthen. You bring in better players than you have. Only an idiot would keep what they have and turn down better players.

10.) 27 Jun 2018 17:31:33
Like your post red cyclist.
Very true indeed.

11.) 27 Jun 2018 18:14:41
Roy our now saying Soudani to sign for calgiari

12.) 27 Jun 2018 18:50:04
RedCyclist I am fully aware of the philosophy behind the strenghtening of an existing squad and the commerce that is necessary to facilitate such an endevour, but thanks for reminding me.

13.) 28 Jun 2018 06:21:54
Sgetty May I also remind you that this a rumours page not the banter page.
Sarcastic or condescending posts will be treated with an appropriate manner as such that your post maybe forwarded to the Derby County site for thorough investigation into why you have posted such a post regarding commerce, philosophical strengthening of a football team.
Fwank and Crush candy mel will give you the opportunity to explain your theory to the board to put your example of commerce and strengthening into the new Derby. County Model also known FFP.
You have been warned! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

14.) 28 Jun 2018 08:16:02
"RedCyclist I am fully aware of the philosophy behind the strenghtening of an existing squad"

So you know I'm right then. Congratulations on actually admitting the obvious truth - that the foremoaners are wrong about bringing in better midfielders is the wrong thing to do!

It's like trying t suck blood from a stone getting people to admit they are wrong on here. :P

15.) 28 Jun 2018 11:42:41
Can't say I've tried to suck blood from anything nevermind a stone?

25 Jun 2018 15:58:46
Season long loan for Sam byram and rumoured to be putting in a bid for Fabio would 2 great signings I think.

Red James

1.) 25 Jun 2018 16:11:31
players and their agents alike clearly want to be part of this 'project'. It's great that Forest have become players first choice of destination. how things can change so quickly. A couple of seasons ago we couldn't attract anything like the calibre of player we needed.

2.) 25 Jun 2018 16:40:03
Both would be great additions! Isn't there a ruling on how many loans you can have in a match squad tho? If these are both loans we are up to 4 already!

3.) 25 Jun 2018 16:49:24
Yes I believe u can have up to 5 loans in your squad however Fabio will be prmenant and Byrom will be a loan

4.) 25 Jun 2018 16:56:02
With a surname of Byram he sounds as if he should be in the sheeps squad.

5.) 25 Jun 2018 16:58:15
Byram would be a season long loan and talks of 3m for Fabio from Middlesbrough. That would be LB and Rb taken care of.

6.) 25 Jun 2018 16:59:00
Is there an agreed future fee for Byram? and how much we paying for Fabio? Just need to tie up deals for these 2 and Clayton, Stuani, Soudani, Marriott and get a keeper then we are in business πŸ˜„

7.) 25 Jun 2018 17:50:29
If we get half the players in doing the rounds we’ll win the World Cup never mind the championship lol COYR

8.) 25 Jun 2018 20:07:08
Sam Byram would be a good signing especially if we can agree an option to sign him. Class act but had injuries at West Ham so he will be keen to get back on track. An upgrade on Eric.

Not keen on Fabio or a fan of short full backs who will get exposed. Sooner have BO at left back than him for Β£3m which is well over the top?

9.) 25 Jun 2018 21:12:15
Just proves that BO is on his way as I doubt he’s getting in our midfield either if all of these new additions and further targets materialise

10.) 25 Jun 2018 21:12:43
I did not know body odour could play football, if it could it would have a stinker of a game. 😁

11.) 25 Jun 2018 23:44:03
Think both these would be great though wouldn’t payΒ£3m for Fabio.
I read on some Portuguese sites that Jose Sa deal is virtually done with Porto but will need to agreed personal terms that might be stumbling block. Personally think he would be great signing and better than Pants. Is good with his feet and disruption and strong shot stopper just likes to punch crosses but Pants does too! As is younger and more experienced in some ways (Recent regular champions league and regular league in Portugal and for Under 21s a few years back)



14 Jun 2018 20:13:37
Now 100% confirmed Joao Carvalho and Diogo Goncalves are signed not on the forest site but ssn and BBC medicals passed today deal done :)

Red James

1.) 14 Jun 2018 20:32:40
i think we can expect a big summer

2.) 14 Jun 2018 21:07:05
99, no Summer only lasts three months.

3.) 14 Jun 2018 21:28:36
On Forest site now along with them wearing new kit !

4.) 14 Jun 2018 21:35:22
Can we just have a hot summer??
Be nice for a change??

5.) 14 Jun 2018 22:04:18
Not sure about the away kit the guy in the middle is wearing??

6.) 14 Jun 2018 22:15:27
New signings red hot! New kit tepid!

7.) 15 Jun 2018 02:07:55
Ff that's tomlin in middle lol

8.) 15 Jun 2018 06:28:32
799, it all depends, we have a Portuguese summer instead of a Indian summer.



04 Jun 2018 14:46:58
So posh have said Marriott can go for 4 mill now I'm guessing because of the lack of offers price is looking more reasonable.

Red James

1.) 04 Jun 2018 16:57:02
Reasonable?!?!??! Β£4m for player that has had one decent season in League 1. . Huge gamble for me!!!

2.) 04 Jun 2018 17:47:26
Every potential signing comes with an element of gamble.I don't think that Β£4mil for Marriot fits into "huge" category. There has been recent speculation regarding signings I do consider to be of that type. For example older players with a history of serious injuries! Marinakis is no mug and neither is Karanka. In business it is sometimes necessary to speculate to accumulate and it seems to me that that is where we are now. I for one am absolutely buzzing at the thought of it. We as fans have had to settle for mediocrity and worse!for far too long! You Reds ! ! ! !

3.) 04 Jun 2018 18:34:14
We'll said mate!!!

4.) 04 Jun 2018 19:32:20
In the current inflated market 4 mill isn't much at all I remember similar comments when we signed britt

5.) 04 Jun 2018 21:15:52
It has to be better than sitting on our hands all through the summer,and ending up with the likes of Embicilio,and Darius Henderson!!!

6.) 04 Jun 2018 21:40:31
Β£4m is a lot of money for a one season wonder at a lower level.

It is in my opinion anyway.

However I look forward to us making signings and the two who Wolves tried to sign last year who we are now linked with Forest and are clients of Mendes excite me the most. If they are anywhere near Neves and Jota quality then we will be a serious force next season.
20/1 to win the league and 13/2 to be promoted.

7.) 05 Jun 2018 06:19:25
The best thing about Darius Henderson was his right hook apparently.

8.) 05 Jun 2018 09:28:45
Red James it was alan Nixon who said they will sell for Β£4mill posh’s owner has said no they won’t they will sell for more than that

9.) 05 Jun 2018 13:46:55
Come on North Notts 4 mill is too much for Marriott?,but 13 mill is ok for a player whose playing at an even lower level??
Don't be fooled by the price tag??

10.) 05 Jun 2018 13:49:36
North Notts Red are you FF in disguise?



28 May 2018 21:36:09
Am I missing something with tomlin or is he the over hyped over priced out of shape player I really see for near 3 mill I expect an athlete not a pub player with a good football brain.

Red James

1.) 28 May 2018 23:23:14
He is probably worth Β£2M in the shape he is in but if he shapes up he's a Β£5M player all day.

2.) 29 May 2018 00:08:33
As he is 29 now and has never been in shape yet I won't hold my breath lol

3.) 28 May 2018 23:55:37
Problem is he'll never be in a 5 million shape, and not worth anything until he gets to work on his fitness.
No excuse for any professional athlete to be unfit and expect to be paid handsomely.
Warnock won't want him, he's tried to get him fit and failed, 3 mill from us and he won't stop laughing.

4.) 29 May 2018 10:52:57
Warnock will be anxious to dump him and spend big since the owner at Cardiff has plenty of money. Whatever he can pick up for Tomlin will be a bonus. I don't think he will command a big fee, but I also don't believe he is the answer to all our midfield problems, and will be used alternately with other players yet to arrive.

5.) 29 May 2018 14:34:30
I happened to see him in KFC the other day. I was behind him when he asked "Can I have a Family Bucket please??" The assistant asked "what size sir??" He replied "the one on the roof!!" πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

6.) 29 May 2018 15:58:08
Karanka obviously rates Tomlin as he was at Middlesbrough with him . He clearly knows what makes him tick. To do that requires man management skills. I say he's worth the gamble ,but for Β£2million maximum! If AK gets him up to speed his potential sell on fee is totally irrelevant.

7.) 29 May 2018 16:11:26
Yet Andy Reid was loved by most.he was out of shape but could pass a ball and had a decent shot on 750k more than Murphy he’s a snip at that price

8.) 29 May 2018 16:13:46
Rogie Red, then he would have been off to the nearest Krispy Kreme for his sweet tooth fix.

9.) 29 May 2018 21:12:56
I know he’s not liked but Commons was unplayable on his day too. And didn’t robbo got voted out best player? And what about Gazza ? A genius with the ball. FF is bang on he will never be an athlete but sometimes I think that’s the problem in this country, we dismiss people if they don’t suit a profile. Who’s idea was it anyway to judge footballer as athletes instead of footballers. All that said I’m still not sure about Tomlin.

Saw a discussion about bridcutt not too impressed ak gave him a chance to fight for place he took it with both hands with 3 good performances then it looks like ak is going to ignore him anyway so why give him the chance not the best managerial decision hardly motivates others to fight for a place.

12 Jul 2018 22:05:32
Just reading the posts about colback and I'm sorry but if a player has to be talked into signing for this length of time I don't want them, just shows there more bothered about money than playing the game they love, I must admit it would probably be hard to make ends meet on 25 ish grand a week instead of 40, I think he is over valuing he ability maybe he is hard inomdated with offers from prem clubs says it all for me.

Red James

1.) 13 Jul 2018 05:13:01
It’s another loan offer

2.) 13 Jul 2018 13:34:22
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.

3.) 13 Jul 2018 21:19:36
Ask yourself this - what would you do? Β£40k a week and sit on it for nothing? Or sign for (what we say) is the greatest team in the world for Β£20k - Β£25k a week?

We are not the greatest team in the world in Jacks head! And his career could end in the first game he plays with an injury - stop slating him about the money - I love Forest as much as the rest of you but give me Β£40k a week I’d probably (although it would hurt) play for them sheep bothering people.

Jack will probably sign and it will be the right deal for both sides

4.) 13 Jul 2018 21:38:22
I don't have to ask this?
40 grand a year will do??
Just saying,
Heart bleeds for em.πŸ€”πŸ€”



06 Jul 2018 17:29:31
I'm full of excitement and optimism like every forest fan right now, but I do have a a little worry which is can any manager get this amount of news signings to hit the ground running it's not a few quality additions to blend in it's virtually a whole new starting 11 and my worry is if were not flying after the first 10 games fans will be calling for ak's head and merry go round starts again.

Red James

1.) 06 Jul 2018 18:05:49
Red James the new signings will be integrated gradually I hope.

2.) 06 Jul 2018 18:09:53

Be VERY afraid!!!. heard The Sheep have already called The Derby off. due to "Snow in AUGUST!!" πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

5.) 06 Jul 2018 19:44:13
Leeds, Villa, West Brom, Brum and Direby are all in the same case of baskets and in for a very torrid season.

6.) 06 Jul 2018 22:40:39
I think the realists among us know that the first few games could be disappointing but given time they will become a team. Patience is required. AK has delivered on every promise so far so give him time to put a run together and deliver the big one.



03 Jul 2018 12:05:16
Pants is a done deal officially announced jury's out for me on this one.

Might get shot down in flames for this but anything top half will do me it's a whole new squad and could potentially take a while to gel look at top managers first seasons most of the time there a bit wobbly and that's with an open cheque book then the second season there unstoppable take pep at man city for example the difference is they were given time because of the reputation something that doesn't happen much in the championship

Why do people keep including Osborn in defence he isn't a defender he had to fill a hole didn't too bad but if were aiming for promotion his name should be no where near the defender list, is a midfielder and of sorry but it's like playing halford upfront again
