Didn't like MW comments on Britt to me that was just an advert saying you can have BA if you bid enough. should of been he isn't for sale.

apparently andreas bouchalakis will have a trial before we decide whether to take him on loan. i feel like he's been forced on warburton to have a look at him.

2.) 29 Jun 2017 17:26:39
No harm in having a look, provided Warbs and the football guys have the final say.



06 Feb 2017 15:31:48
Can anyone confirm what loss were running at? I see a million a month come up a lot.

Red James

1.) 06 Feb 2017 16:07:35
Hi James I posted earlier about finances. 1 million a month loss is probably right but covered by the Burke sale so I don't believe Fawaz will have had to out any money in this season. That's why the urgency for selling club has gone away. That and the fact that he can raise a similar amount in the summer if he chooses to sell our talent. That gives him an extra 12 months to find a buyer.

2.) 06 Feb 2017 17:05:47
So I'm confused that's 48 mill over 3 years which about covered by player sales not quite but close so where has the the other 120 million he has pumped into us gone not out for hate campaign or finger pointing just trying to understand where is gone ok manager pay offs yes, what 20 million ish for that and that probably hasn't all come out of the forest accounts in one go 100 million to go lol.

3.) 06 Feb 2017 18:03:04
Not enough income from fans through the turnstiles and a poor commercial set up (hospitality income and facilities are not great) and on top of that some poor buys and pay offs for sacked staff- basically just living beyond our means and some poor decisions-hoping for the windfall which the prem could have brought our way. A gamble that hasn't come off, player sales will cover the running cost deficit but we need a long term plan to make sure we live within our means andcover our operating costs.

4.) 06 Feb 2017 21:36:09
Until Nffc get the off the pitch business up and running we will never make big money, we would be better off moving stadium to a purpose built football park, shops, restaurants, conference facility, hotel etc. Need to make more money to survive.

5.) 07 Feb 2017 00:15:30
Totally agree, but we have a chicken and egg situation here.
Punters won't come and buy "prawn" sandwiches and other entertaining goodies until the "show" is worth watching.
I bring clients to the footie and take them to the L&V pre-match meal as far better vfm.

6.) 07 Feb 2017 03:29:06
I think he is including the £30 mil he spent buying the club too in his '£122 mil' estimation.

7.) 07 Feb 2017 07:01:42
Remember he only mentioned what he had "spent", not what he had made back so the 122m may be correct including the purchase of the club but that's not to say he's actually lost that much money in the club.

8.) 07 Feb 2017 07:59:14
Great point gazza.

9.) 07 Feb 2017 08:33:30
the 2015 accounts (latest available) showed the club owed £69.0 million to the Al hasawi family (not fawaz) and £14.9 million to the holding company, which totalled £83.9 million. Since then we have had the Antonio, Burke and now Lansbury monies, so cannot believe the loans will have risen by much if at all.

10.) 08 Feb 2017 12:54:27
Club definitely need to employ some commercial staff and look to expand hospitality, merchandising etc we are shockingly behind others.



26 Jan 2017 14:57:26
Embargo was managers fault, winding up orders the financial director fault you I don't think he is lying I really think he believes none of it is his fault lol even though he employed all these muppets, we were bottom of the league when he bought us ?? Can someone please confirm this I always thought we were a top 6 side most years till he destroyed it all but I might be wrong.

Red James

1.) 26 Jan 2017 15:29:23
Finished 19th 2011/12 season.

2.) 26 Jan 2017 15:30:56
We had not played a game when the Halawsi family bought us the previous season was a calamity, Davies sacked the McLaren fiasco, Cotterel came we looked set for rellegation bottom of league O'driscol came as a coach till the end of season, team transformed and were near top of the inform teams rest of season, finished 5 or 6 from bottom I think.



23 Jan 2017 14:37:26
I thought there might of been more speculation on jjm comment of the accounts looking odd. I suppose the fa will find anything worth finding.

Red James

1.) 23 Jan 2017 16:56:58
yeah, leave it to the reliable FA :) - i'd be 100% confident that the FA would find F@#* All



30 Dec 2016 21:51:53
Someone asked ash on the live commentary tonight if he knew anything about the takeover and he said yes he does but can't say anything YET but good news will be coming very soon.

If we're work in progress why are we getting worse each game, a passing game is great if your players can actually pass a ball!

Red James

1.) 23 Sep 2017 18:23:33
We'll be ok in a few months Red James lol. That's possesion football cracked. Next i think we're going to do some work in training on actually doing something with the possesion and after a couple of months of that we may move on to working on the defense!

2.) 23 Sep 2017 18:25:35
It would help if they pass it forward, there heads are down MW needs to pull one out his Ass at halftime

3.) 23 Sep 2017 18:30:09
Mr Warburton. I'm giving you 3 (and a half) games. please, please,please ,prove me wrong!!! 😢😢😢

4.) 23 Sep 2017 18:32:06
This is crap. Pretty tip tap passing for ten minutes then concede. Absolutely nothing going forward, have we even bin in the villa box? Get Brerton off and get Caryol on asap. Af ter a great start I feel Dowell is struggling . Get Caryol on and goals will come. How can war burton not see this?.

5.) 23 Sep 2017 18:33:37
Never imagined I'd ever look forward to the international break coming?

Commentators straining every sinew trying to be kind and still can't find anything positive to say.

6.) 23 Sep 2017 18:36:47
As the saying goes.

Those who stay and do their best go up the road with all the rest.

7.) 23 Sep 2017 19:20:38
Who you suggest No 22???



22 Aug 2017 00:41:41
Just wondered if anyone knew KD value looked online and all I could kind was 250k lol I know buying him might be a pipe dream I was just curious.

Red James

1.) 22 Aug 2017 08:10:58
I think it would be a pipe dream buying Kirk Douglas. Or do you mean Kerry Dixon? Keith Duffy? Or was it a goalkeeper you were talking about?

2.) 22 Aug 2017 14:24:34
It's not a hard question as I we have one player at forest with those initials being kieran Dowell but appreciate your sarcasm my fellow supporter

3.) 22 Aug 2017 15:36:12
Well that's why I mentioned a goalkeeper - could be Karl Darlow or any of the above. I had no idea you meant Dowell. Not sure anyone did tbh

4.) 22 Aug 2017 16:49:06
I thought he meant Kenny Dalglish!

5.) 22 Aug 2017 17:43:44
Yes lot of links to us buying darlow who was valued at around 7 mill by Newcastle ok sorry will make sure I out it in clearer terms from now on

6.) 22 Aug 2017 18:09:50
Ken Dodd not tall enough for centre half, so can't be him !!!



10 Aug 2017 13:52:31
Will try to be devil's advocate I think the "doomers" as they're dubbed do have a point the defence is as weak as last season and hard to see any kind of progression same players same mistakes yes 2 wins out of 2 is great but they still shouldn't of been 2 nervy games if we honest, let's hope in time the defence can improve as it doesn't look like any defenders are being signed.

Red James

1.) 10 Aug 2017 15:44:53
The real test of any defence is away from home as that's when you are expected to soak up a lot more pressure. No nerves just confidently dealing with danger. I hope MW pairs worral with hobbs and mancienne just infront.

2.) 10 Aug 2017 17:02:19
This site makes me laugh win, lose, draw moaners. co. UK.

Jrs1966 uugh?

4.) 10 Aug 2017 17:58:06
Couldn't agree more 66', 2 games in and groans, but wait, we won both didn't we, but still moans, ok.

Hopefully get some kind of result on Sat!

5.) 10 Aug 2017 18:54:59
Yes we won but even when you win there is negatives like the first game that everyone knows we should of lost because of how shocking we were at defending. if they could shoot they would of battered us. its called being realistic and not getting carried away.

6.) 10 Aug 2017 19:59:08
Neverknowlinglyhappy/ / Forestfans!

7.) 10 Aug 2017 20:17:35

"not getting carried away"? It's 1 game into the season! Maybe try "not getting carried away" yourself!

Can you maybe just wait a few weeks to see how the team settles before moaning all season, as usual?

8.) 10 Aug 2017 20:17:56
Rie, or is JL.



08 Aug 2017 12:26:55
I know a lot will say it's early in the season give time ect but our defence looked no different from last season on Friday as we seem to linked with another hat full of attacking players our strongest area finding it really frustrating every successful team is built from the back and our back 4 have been missing for a season and a game now why can't anyone at nffc see that after the second worse defensive record in the league surely it would of been priority feeling very nervous.

Red James

1.) 08 Aug 2017 13:03:02
Totally agree if warbo doesn't address centre back and centre midfielder. It will bite him on his Arse.
And cost him his job.

2.) 08 Aug 2017 13:29:30
R J. I agree we need some defenders each one has their faults, but other than Mancienne and Woral i would have replaced all the rest. We do have to trust MW's choices, and remember we rarely had the same defence much of last season, perhaps a settled defence this season in the league could make a big difference, which that is going to take time.

3.) 08 Aug 2017 13:43:48
Alot of punters on here have been saying this for ages. me included!

4.) 08 Aug 2017 14:20:08
I don't necessarily disagree with the ideas here. We've all said for ages we need a strong midfield "General". I wonder if MW is deciding to use Cohen, Vaughan and Bouchalakis in this role rotating them match to match. He might want to also rotate central defenders - Mills, Mancienne, Worrall, Fox with Darikwa also a possibility. It worries me that he makes Mancienne Captain, as I don't see much leadership from him apart from his brilliant tackles and saving difficult situations which he is so good at, when we need someone in Midfield leading and organising things. It doesn't look like there will be any more additions outfield so it's all a bit puzzling, as it was bound to be early on in the season. We also need to offload more players before there is any contemplation of buying in or loaning other players.

5.) 08 Aug 2017 15:00:09
A comanding centreback would be nice and strong midfielder but others have made the point that a back 4 needs time to get to know eachother and settle as a unit. Hobbs fit, manc and worrall all good enough. Regular football together and no changes is what it needs. Buy a new defender won't solve it overnight as you are back to square one with settling in.

6.) 08 Aug 2017 15:22:59
why do we keep calling it a back 4 when its a back 3 with wing backs.

7.) 08 Aug 2017 15:39:37
I see Kris Commons is a free agent definately worth a punt! 😂😂😋😋.

8.) 08 Aug 2017 15:50:49
The Posts Mr Taylor says we play 3-5-1 when defending, and 4-3-3 when attacking, i do not care what anyone wants to call the formation, all i care about is getting a balanced team that wins more matches than it losses, and hope i get entertained.

9.) 08 Aug 2017 23:05:57
Chugsy, back 4 back 3 whatever. Principle is the same. It ain't going to get fixed overnight. With or without new defenders the defence needs time playing together.



19 Jul 2017 09:52:00
We sell Britt for 15 mill the lazy journalists will love it linked with everyone under the sun I'm amazed 5 players forest could sign to replace Britt isn't out yet lol.

Red James

1.) 19 Jul 2017 12:06:40
Ive already seen the amp post on five players to replace britt. Does crack you up mind you if they don't write anything they ain't got to job.

We nearly the same points away from the bottom 3 as well abf 😁 I'm not being a doomer just looking at the facts this defence has been like this for 56 games now and 20 of those under mw and absolutely no progression I know you need the rub of the green but we have had a seasons worth in 10 games lol people say give it time when for me this defence has there time already and failed miserably

Ok let's blindly carry on averaging 2 goals conceded a game the improvement will be because were playing league 1 teams you just can't let that many goals in in the championship

Wouldn't say that abf but an improvement would be a start defence is as bad if not worse than last year as everyone keeps saying work in progress where is the progress because I still see a team leaking goals and lacking inspiration don't get me wrong off the field is great but on it looks no different to last season right now

It's more the fact he inherited the second worst defence in league then completely ignored the fact we conceded 72 goals went our and bought loads of attacking options, leaves out last year's player of the year for a poor defender, relentlessly plays mills dispite so many mistakes and solo positional errors leading to goals, take leeds for example new owners new manager 8 or 9 new players same boat as us except there manager joined at then of June and there 3rd I'm sorry but he chose to ignore our biggest problem and is now paying the price

Why is there no money spent just half of britts money more season tickets bigger seeing more sponsors coming through reduced wage bill yes we can't spend 30 mill on a new defence doesn't always take mega money to get a good player look at McKay I'm sorry but this defence has played under several managers with several different tactics all leaked goals bottom line there not good enough.

I wouldn't be too harsh on Henderson he has been out a very long time and your first competitive game back is chelsea away poor bloke his confidence would of already been low and lacking sharpness
