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.

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.

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

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.

No recognised defender on the bench really?

Red James

1.) 16 Dec 2017 16:16:07
Who would you suggest we haven't got anymore that's fit.


2.) 16 Dec 2017 16:41:26
So we have no youth players ? I hear a lot about how well they do better than no cover at all


3.) 16 Dec 2017 16:43:51
Red James,some of'em can barely recognise each other!!!


 

 

04 Dec 2017 16:48:17
I thought all teams do research on opposition get there home work done then form a plan according to what they find from video clips ect I can't see that at all as it's the same no matter who we play bit like pearce great first 12 games got worked out and had no answer there is no one system that works against 23 teams until that changes i don't think we will challenge the top 6.

I'm sure I will be shot in down flames here but oh we'll lol, Dowell is a good player I know but could we afford him . no, will be relegated without him . no, will we go up with him . no, so why are we slowing down the likes of clough development to add value to someone's else's player?

Red James

1.) 01 Nov 2017 17:54:26
I made the same point and totally agree Red James.


 

 

19 Oct 2017 18:24:48
Interesting stats in the nep, this time last season we had the same points as now but had conceded 4 less goals all this talk of work in progress is wearing thin with me.

Red James

1.) 19 Oct 2017 18:51:32
It's difficult Red I agree. If we had only 3 more players, a central defender a defensive midfielder and stand-out captain we would be in a very different position - but to get them will take time. I'm sure Mr. McParland is working on it, we must just be patient.


2.) 19 Oct 2017 19:44:53
Maybe it's the similar stats as last season but I'm pretty sure where in a better place my personal opinion is if we lose at the weekend where in trouble we've dropped a few points we shouldn't have the biggest one for me was barnsley I sat there and couldn't believe we hadn't even come away with a point because we battered them but same old story couldn't defend and couldn't finish either but that's the way it's been but I'm sure it's wearing thin with fans


3.) 19 Oct 2017 20:11:16
This time last year everyone wanted pm gone this year they want warbo in!pm was working with a mental owner warbos got everything on a plate.


4.) 19 Oct 2017 20:21:33
being patient is one thing. continuing to lose and play like they have been are two different things. patience and dropping points.means sliding down to were forest hve been in last few seasons. it dont. change the fact. they are not getting any better


5.) 21 Oct 2017 08:53:14
We are better. Look at the teams in this league. No easy games now. We play better football than we have in ages. Stats can't tell you that. Yes we need to defend better. that's the most important thing and I think a cb is top of the list in Jan but we are not far away. A couple of results where it goes the right side of the post or in off a defenders backside and we will be fine. Maybe that could start today.


6.) 21 Oct 2017 09:10:01
Should goalkeeper and defence not have been a priority in the summer given last season Redfin? We've been talking about defending better since MW walked in the door.What's changed? We concede nearly 2 goals a game.If this is better football you can keep it.The better football needs to be played in the right half of the pitch not across our back 4 all the time.


7.) 21 Oct 2017 11:03:51
To be fair perks he did try to get the Danish goalkeeper.
And Frederici as well,that just didn't happen.


8.) 21 Oct 2017 14:34:02
Seemed all to last minute FF79. Get your business done early I say.


9.) 21 Oct 2017 20:17:54
Sutton how as mw got everything on a plate please explain properly is it the extra 4 million he had to spend on players or Burke and assombongola in the team oh no there gone please explain properly thanks

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

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.
