I think we should sign Burke Antonio and Britt 😂.

Red James

Have you just win the Euro millions?
Or is a Turkish holiday really that cheap?🤣🤣🤣

2.) 03 Aug 2018 22:57:22
To be fair red James the three Portuguese lads look the real deal and they say never look back?

3.) 03 Aug 2018 23:30:29
You might be joking but I'd suggest Burke is available at the right price.

4.) 03 Aug 2018 23:39:33
Could pay in lira would help a lot lol

5.) 03 Aug 2018 23:40:45
But yes they do I was at the Bournemouth game and we looked the prem side and them championship just concerned with Murphy getting the number 9 shirt

6.) 04 Aug 2018 08:10:22
Murphy needs the number 9 bus out of here.

7.) 04 Aug 2018 17:38:33
@Red always: WRONG!

8.) 04 Aug 2018 21:36:04
Murphy has a role to play or AK wouldn't play him. Most fans would welcome the Murphy we saw at the start of last season. Injury and personal issues robbed us of that player. His age and contract will attract unfair criticism, his only escape is to score goals. So well done Murphy, well done AK keep doing what you're well paid to do.👏

9.) 05 Aug 2018 14:22:57

He didn't give himself the contract. We are paying him what we are paying him but that and his personal probs last season don't make him a bad player. I just reckon people have been unfair with him and should give him a break.



27 Jun 2018 12:57:26
Formal offer has made to Daniel Podence.

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! 😂😂😂😂😂

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 😄

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 £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 pay£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

i think we can expect a big summer

Be nice for a change??

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?!?!??! £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 £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
£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 £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?

Need some help ak has lost montaniers number so was only able to make one change if anyone has it would help a lot 😂😂 I'm gob smacked.

Red James

1.) 19 Sep 2018 20:42:50
AK is not a serial team changer once the players do what he demands.
Keep the faith



19 Sep 2018 09:20:28
Cjay going back to your bang average squad size comment we have the largest squad in the league at 33 with most teams having 22 to 25 so we not far off a whole extra 11 stick up for ak as much as your like but every man involved in football is saying how ridiculas it's getting and is giving himself no chance of finding his best 11 with to many combinations.

Red James

1.) 19 Sep 2018 09:45:53
Red James
I could be wrong but i think there could be a lot of the current squad that have refused to leave that AK told they were not in his plans, even though new players have kept coming in.

2.) 19 Sep 2018 10:07:57
Hope for a full house tonight at the cg watched a bit of stoke and direby a lot of supporters turned as plastic seats !!!

3.) 19 Sep 2018 11:48:11
Last year Wolves had 32 & cardiff had 30, I ain't so much interested in who's got what, more what it takes to get you up.

Besides, why do we get bogged down with wanting the same eleven every week? i'd prefer we had different things to bring to the table each week than one plan fits all. That didn't really work under the last bloke.

4.) 19 Sep 2018 12:20:35
Wolves had 32
Cardiff had 30

We should be more interested in what it takes to get out this league than the average.

Think we get bogged down with best 11s when the reality is you need a variety of everything to win this league. Horses for Courses an all that.

5.) 19 Sep 2018 12:59:07
Because teams that achieve success have a settled 11 not 5 or 6 changes a game tinker men don't succeed

6.) 19 Sep 2018 15:05:41
APS. if we don't get a full house. the rest of the squad will make the numbers up!!!😂😂😂



17 Sep 2018 15:05:46
Before I get shot down for being negative I'm stating a fact the possession in each other's final 3rd weren't miles apart 22% in ours and 30% in there's really highlights our lack of cutting edge most of the possession was in midfield with no threat.

Red James

1.) 17 Sep 2018 15:41:35
We missed two belters, they barely got a sight at ours. You don't often get to create a hatful of chances on other teams patch.

Osborn burys them & anywhere other than here, its party time. i'd get the relevance of them stats if we were at home & didn't create two sitters to their zero.

2.) 17 Sep 2018 15:49:47
Maybe he should try gomis up front he has a eye for goal

3.) 17 Sep 2018 16:11:21
Cjay you just seem to refuse to let anyone question or criticize come on surely you can see this team is massively underperforming, of course it's relevant for all our bossing and wonderful possession it was all in the middle park because were playing 5 midfielders let's face it Swansea were very poor and we still couldn't score we can create 20 sitters a game they still need to be buried and there not that's difference between a good team and an average team is taking those chances, grabban seemed to spend most of the game outwide which was made glaringly obvious when janko played a lovely ball into the 6 yard box and it rolled all through without a single red shirt in sight sorry but I don't call this progress in just being realistic this team could do great things with a more positive formation

4.) 17 Sep 2018 17:04:38
9 games in, 1 defeat, concession at 1 goal a game, new team, new approach, new conditions for some players, couple of key early injuries. I don't see how the team is underperforming, unless we all think a team that cost "25 mill" just rocks up, plays champagne football & wins.

Defense is better, shape & organisation is better, we battle for points, we stick together, we've redressed the balance physically, Do we get to do this in stages or does everything have to transalte to results right from the off. Is it compulsory to find a negative?

Another box to tick Wednesday, impose ourselves on Wednesday, put in a positive performance & get a positive result. Another box to tick Saturday, beat Rotherham.

Is the concept of building in stages totally alien to some folk?

5.) 17 Sep 2018 18:15:27
Cjay no it’s not compulsory to find a negative neither is it compulsory to deny anyone a critical opinion of a performance, 9 games in only 2wins too including the Newcastle game with 3points a win you can soon find yourself with a lot of catching up to do if wins don’t arrive soon

6.) 17 Sep 2018 18:21:51
Sheff Wed and Rotherham at home aren't 6 points in the bag. If the team don't perform and take their chances, more points dropped. Pleased with defensive progress but the lack of composure or confidence in front of goal needs to be addressed quickly. The rest of the league aren't going to wait for Forest to gel, we need to get wins and stay in touch of the top ten, at least. Many more draws and the feel good factor will start to wain, shame given the hard work the club has done to get the fans back.

7.) 17 Sep 2018 18:23:38
Problem is Red James there are too many constantly criticising and not enough with common sense that it's not going to happen overnight.

There are quite a few wanting to hit the panic button already but no one seems to have learnt from the past. But some attention seeking just come on to dig out Karanka everyday regardless of whether we have played a game or not, mist be bored or something.

8.) 17 Sep 2018 19:02:17
Statetheobvious just wondering who elected you moderator ? If people post a critical post and you don’t like it that’s too bad that’s what the sites for an exchange of opinion and so called ‘positive’ posters opinion are no more valid than anyone else’s so please spare me the taking of the moral high ground because your such a great positive fan,i ain’t got an opinion either way on karanka at the mo but I believe he still has a lot to prove at this club I ain’t interested what he did at boro,it’s here that counts for me nowhere else is of interest

9.) 17 Sep 2018 21:17:09
5 or 6 of our signings have only arrived in last 4 weeks hardly time for them to get match fit and up to speed with tactics etc so I do think we need more time, yes you don't get much time now days but we are only 2 wins from top six.
Last season we played tippy tappy, loads of possession, this season we are begining to press hard and close down teams, we made Swansea look ordinary on Saturday, same with WBA and Newcastle, most of Bristol City game.
We aren't consistent but getting there.
This is a positive for me.

10.) 17 Sep 2018 21:28:29
Swansea are ordinary



10 Sep 2018 11:58:29

At least 3 of those 9 were very lucky escapes with last minute goals always coming from behind so ok luck has been on our side but it will run out, nothing wrong with the tactics I've heard it all now lol, 4 at the back 2 defensive midfielders who drop into that back 4 huge gaps in midfield and one isolated figure up front, I just hope the Watson colback pairing is a thing of the past never know such negative football he is setting up to not lose which never works in the championship

But the football is same just with more expensive players, how can last season be irrelevant with the results the same as those 19 games, 2 different teams same problems the only constant is ak and his tactics, 21 points in 20 games last season 8 points from 7 games this season definitely a pattern there, no one wants him to succeed more than me but I'm just being realistic that the same patterns are forming as last season or am I the only one concerned
