The latest rumour is a corker. Krankie has noticed Murphy is scoring regularly so he is considering dropping the in-form player AGAIN and playing Grabban! Quality decision making.


1.) 09 Sep 2018 13:43:15
Red did you expect a team full of MIDFIELDERS😂😂😂


2.) 09 Sep 2018 22:16:25
We will either have a team full of midfielders or have a lot of unhappy midfielders sitting in the stands. Take your pick.


3.) 10 Sep 2018 14:28:16
What on Earth are those thumbs down meant to mean. Is it thumbs down when you think the rumour isn't true (because it is). Or thumbs down to Krankie decision making. Or thumbs down because you are a Krankie fan in spite of the evidence?


4.) 10 Sep 2018 14:44:45
Apparently "thumbs down" are open to interpretation RedCyclist. I have found its best not to over analyse.


5.) 10 Sep 2018 15:00:41
Some people don't like to hear the truth red cyclist,karanka had a backing of 90% of fans I'd say before all ball was kicked,now I'd say it's fifty fifty.
Fans will listen to excuses for so long and then they want to see improvement on the pitch and in results,
I'm a fan who never wanted him here in the first place,purely down to his negative tactics,but even I can cope with that if results are good,but they aren't,he will fail or succeed by his own decisions ,which are bizzare at times.
So ignore the thumbs down the tide is turning against him and he only has himself to blame.


6.) 10 Sep 2018 15:55:07
I have to be honest Ff I am generally a person with a positive outlook but after recent events I have been finding it increasingly difficult to remain so. Am really hoping that it's a blip and that things will improve soon.🙏You Reds!


7.) 10 Sep 2018 15:58:55
Was just wondering what the thumbs mean - on here generally on here as well as this rumour.

I didn't want Karanka either, partly based on wanting stability and partly because the previous boss' footballing principles matched Forests. He wanted to develop young players over time.

People forget that stability isn't just about having the same boss for longer than five minutes. It is also about building a team that stays together. So not too many players 30 years and over because they will obviously not be here in a few years. If you have a talented young player (like Cummings) then you have to give them a chance to develop. Buying a 30 plus year old replacement is short term.

OK, I'll admit if we go up this season I'd be delighted. However if we don't we could have spent this season bringing on younger players who will be her in five years and grow together. That is what real stability is.

We lost at least 2 managers with the mentality to build a FOOTBALLING ATTACKING team based on good young players. O'Driscoll and Warburton. We need to forget big-time Charlie foreign bosses using us as a stepping stone. Forget supposeldly "proven" Premier League or International managers (McCleish, McLaren. ) and stick with a manager who believes in the right kind of football and has the patience to develop a real long term project.


8.) 10 Sep 2018 16:30:51
Agree with you all the way there red. Good post.


9.) 10 Sep 2018 17:34:38
And based on the above, if Krankie does get the boot we should re-appoint O'Driscoll. It won't happen with short termism but that is what I'd do.

Imagine if O'Driscoll could spend two years with the kind of cash Krankie has just spent. HE already had us a single point outside the play-offs when he was sacked.

Proper strability isn't sticking with a losing boss. It is about building a TEAM! The best teams stay together for years.


10.) 10 Sep 2018 17:57:47
In principle everything that you say is true RedCyclist but modern football doesn't work that way I'm sad to say. It's an amplification of the throw away society in which we all live.


11.) 11 Sep 2018 09:07:28
I said at the time we should have gone for the Lincoln boys as Managers.
Where are they in the league this season?


12.) 11 Sep 2018 22:12:16
Oh I get it now. If you point out people are wrong and are correct you get a lot of thumbs down. LOL


 

 

31 Jan 2018 23:32:10
Unfortunately it looks like Colbach and Dawson haven't signed. A shame as we would have been solid with both of them.


1.) 01 Feb 2018 00:13:44
PHew, Colback is a red!!!


2.) 01 Feb 2018 00:16:05
Colback as been announced so has geddy


 

 

06 Jan 2018 22:31:47
Apparently some of the players want Gary Brazil to take over. Maybe with so many Academy players he'd be good for a punt at least until the summer. If he got us promoted great and if not he can continue to work with the younger players in the first team for a while.


1.) 07 Jan 2018 00:46:24
Well if they knock Arsenal out, not out of the question. Sadly I think GB is always the bridesmaid never the bride. Owners have their man and we'll find out soon enough.


2.) 07 Jan 2018 09:03:00
I like and probably we all like Brazil, but he didn't exactly do much last time he took over. I'd be interested in having the German here, you have to admit their managers seem to produce awesome fast-flowing football.


3.) 07 Jan 2018 09:42:22
If he got us promoted? Seriously?


4.) 07 Jan 2018 17:04:33
Promoted... Hmm.... Definitely not!


5.) 07 Jan 2018 22:56:03
You guys who say nay all the time know nothing. Still think Brazil couldn't get us promoted after that result?


 

 

01 Jan 2018 11:39:24
Yes I know Roy Keane has strugged in management in the past but perhaps he is what these players need? Not to put too fine a point on it these players need a rocket up their collective backsides.

Something recent bosses at Forest have lacked is experience playing at the highest level. Keane has that and has hopefully learned something from Martin O'Neill during his time at Ireland!

Obviously O'Neill with Keane would be the dream ticket. Groom Keane for the job long term while he is assistant!


1.) 01 Jan 2018 11:58:01
Kean was at the match on Saturday?


2.) 01 Jan 2018 12:10:14
Keane maybe O'Neills assist with Ireland, however he is a Manager in his own right, cannot see him being an assistant at Forest. They both have well paid cushy jobs with Ireland and cannot see either of them coming to Forest. The Greek is not going to pay compensdation for them to come to Forest.


3.) 01 Jan 2018 12:18:02
Well. If keane was at the match then he is obviously going to leave his international job and take over at a struggling championship club. Makes perfect sense


4.) 01 Jan 2018 12:22:34
There is a difference between being strong and being a bully.
O'Neil definitely, Keane never for me.


5.) 01 Jan 2018 12:34:15
I have been told the new contracts with Ireland have not been signed after they failed to qualify for the world cup. There would not be a big problem regarding compensation for that reason.


6.) 01 Jan 2018 12:52:37
It doesn't matter who we get, Reddog. You always want them out within 6 months anyway. LOL


7.) 01 Jan 2018 13:20:12
Keano is clueless, he just cannot man-manage whereas O'Neil can.


8.) 01 Jan 2018 13:33:24
RC, I want what is best for the team I pay to support and will back a decent manager the same as the next man.
There is no such thing as a football club now it's a limited company that expects results to maximise profit.
I'm sure a clever guy like you already knew that though 😉
As a paying fan I have an opinion and I have felt (since the day he was disrespectful to Eric on the radio) that he was not right for the club.
Better being realistic than the "give him time" brigade


9.) 01 Jan 2018 15:32:33
💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩


10.) 01 Jan 2018 15:50:07
Keane is a thug. Remember what he did to haaland? I’d have O’Neill though.


11.) 02 Jan 2018 15:19:27
Red dog, great post mate. You’ve summmarised perfectly what is expected of a manager to survive in the modern business of football.


 

 

28 Dec 2017 16:49:16
Stephen Caulker to Forest? Free transfer, one England cap and a gambling/alcohol habit.


1.) 28 Dec 2017 22:55:52
Need to put a "cork"in that"bottle" and not put the "money"down on that one.😅😅😅

I think a few people on here are forgetting how good Oliver Burke was before he left. He was literally bulldozing teams and scoring goals for fun. He would also be a different type of option to what we have.

As an impact player he would also be far better than Dias. I'd definitely try to get him on loan or if available on the cheap. He could be the final piece in the attacking 4 jigsaw for me.


1.) 04 Dec 2018 15:01:56
I remember Oli Burke 6 goals in 31 matches, always ran in straight line, never looked up to play the right pass or understood the offside rule?

Still has potential but I have doubts that he is a quick learner to play our quick one and two touch passing game?


2.) 04 Dec 2018 15:12:28
RC, With the part of his huge wages we would have to part with he would be a very dear impact player.
West Brom will not take less than what he cost them, and why should they, they will just keep loaning him out.


3.) 04 Dec 2018 16:36:44
They are looking to cut their losses on Burke so we wouldn't have to pay all of his wages. He had only just started scoring regularly when he left. Like I say, people just clearly can't remember. Look at the last few reports in the local rags player ratings before he left. He was on fire.

He was playing where he'd grown up (in a footballing sense). It's obvious leaving home before he was old enough has wrecked his career since he left. Were you ready to live in Germany (without speaking the language) without friends and famil as a teenager. His confidence was destroyed. That is also why he wasn't ready for the Prem.

{Ed001's Note - Burke failed in Germany and the Prem because he is too thick. They called him empty hard drive in Germany because he lacked the intelligence to understand tactical instructions.}


4.) 04 Dec 2018 16:38:20
And whoever put this in banter can you please stop putting general chat in banter then putting my rumours in banter. It is annoying.

There is a rumour that Burke might be coming back on loan on the back pages of a local rag. Keep up please. :P

{Ed001's Note - you never posted a rumour you posted idle chit chat.}


5.) 04 Dec 2018 16:51:21
Think if he were to come back it might be what puts him back to his best as he’s not looked at all comfortable since leaving, I bet he 100% regrets leaving us


6.) 04 Dec 2018 19:53:05
Not my memory of burke if I’m honest RC. FAH did very well there I think. I’m not saying I wouldn’t take a chance for the right money but don’t remember it quite as you describe.


7.) 04 Dec 2018 19:55:10
Matty cash is a far better player,you have to defend as a winger as well,something burke can't do.


8.) 06 Dec 2018 09:30:30
We are definitely discussing the Oli Burke rumour Ed even if I didn't explicitly state "it is rumoured he is available".

Are you sure the problem in Germany wasn't depression and not understanding instructions because he didn't speak the language. I wasn't there obviously but so many kids fail first time they move abroad.

{Ed001's Note - yes you are discussing a rumour, not posting up a rumour.

Yes I am very sure. The same issue has continued at West Brom, he is simply not very bright and that is not going to suit modern managers like Karanka, who give detailed instructions to players.}


9.) 06 Dec 2018 09:32:33
Oh and I agree Cash is a better all round player. But for the specific job of running straight through defences with pace (e.g. against slow full backs or tired ones later in the game Burke is as good as any player.

If he's available cheap a few extra goals from him might be the difference between play-offs and automatic.


10.) 06 Dec 2018 11:28:50
Only thing is,if he's not good enough for WBA bench,is he really good enough for ours bearing in mind we already have a few loans and only so many can be in the match day squad?
Personally I'd leave it,just a flash in the pan,wingers come along all the time with pace have one good season and fade away,Franz Carr the prime example.


11.) 06 Dec 2018 12:37:08
It comes down to giving him a chance I guess. If he needs confidence to perform he has no chance. He is good enough for the West Brom bench in my opinion. That is how you buy bargains. You find underrated players and manage them better but it is all about opinions and what type of player the manager wants.

Franz Carr is a poor comparison. He had no end product all along. They stuck with him because they thought he had potential. We know Burke can produce the end product because we've seen it.

All this could be academic if Appiah comes through during the busy Christmas schedule.


12.) 06 Dec 2018 18:19:42
Yacob was deemed not good enough for WBA as well but it doesn't make him a bad player. I liked Burke and think he's much better than Dias or Goncalves.


 

 

01 Oct 2018 15:06:33
How many goals has Grabban scored from open play this season? I'd be interested to see his real goals to games/ minutes ratio. I know he's playing better now so what does it look like now?


1.) 01 Oct 2018 17:13:27
The simple fact that he is scoring is enough for me.


2.) 01 Oct 2018 17:24:24
And me - he’s working a bit harder now and you can see it matters to him.


3.) 01 Oct 2018 17:43:49
I agree with both 2star and Sgetty it doesn’t matter how he scores as long as he does why find a negative even when it’s positive


4.) 01 Oct 2018 19:55:40
I just wonder what the trick cyclist will be saying when GrabOne gets to Grab 20 goals?


5.) 01 Oct 2018 20:41:59
We'd have four more points if he was a bit more accurate with his penalties.🤔


6.) 01 Oct 2018 22:03:46
You mean 2 points Ff. The miss against Wigan was put in by Soudani after the keeper had saved it.


7.) 02 Oct 2018 06:17:34
If he would of scored the first penalty against Blackburn who’s to say they wouldn’t of equalised still or would the game of still panned out as it did?that’s just silly assuming the game would of gone the same way.


8.) 02 Oct 2018 06:39:41
I agree Sutton. It's best to deal on facts rather than ifs , buts and maybes.


9.) 02 Oct 2018 07:10:16
A miss is a miss can you honestly say you have confidence when he steps up to take a pen?
I don't,it's shut your eyes time with him.


10.) 02 Oct 2018 12:27:43
The man himself displayed confidence to take a second penalty Ff! Surely that is what matters not that we may or may not be confident in him.


11.) 03 Oct 2018 09:14:19
Some will be blaming GrabOne's beard next?

He is on course for being up the top end of the scoring charts this season so let's see how it pans out?

A little context for all you expecting your top scorer to be banging them in from the get go.

Fan favourite David Johnson only scored 2 goals from Jan to May when he first moved to Forest. Dear old Earnie went 13 games without a goal at the start of 2010 season.

Conclusion, it must be the beard causing all the negativity? 😁😁😁


12.) 03 Oct 2018 11:51:45
Redin exile, If your £6.5M penalty taker (prob 10 goals from penalties a season start) does not get 20 goals then you have wasted a lot of money.


13.) 03 Oct 2018 11:53:15
I'd love to see the beard go as much as any fan but if he gets us promoted and keeps scoring then he can have whatever facial hair he likes. Come on Bearded Assassin!!!


14.) 03 Oct 2018 16:27:33
Look what happened to Samson when some divvy cut his hair!


 

 

15 Sep 2018 15:03:22
I like the look of todays team. Based on form he needed to bring Cash and Osbourne in.

Pants
Janko, Hefela, Fox, Robinson
Guedioura, Colbach
Cash, Osbourne, Lolley
Grabban

I'd have given Murphy another start to keep his goal run going but maybe he hasn't trained well or has a knock as he isn't even on the bench.

Looks a good team to me


1.) 15 Sep 2018 15:35:40
Totally agree, I’m glad he’s shown some bottle and relegated the 3 amigos to the bench. Excellent decision from the manager.


 

 

29 Aug 2018 21:52:06
Before you all get too excited. We ALWAYS go well against the better teams. Now we need to start to beat the others.

On the subject of Daryl Murphy not being a goalscorer. I TOLD YOU SO!

You Reds!


1.) 29 Aug 2018 22:19:49
I agree cyclist and we beat these guys last year and got excitied! That said though nothing wrong in applauding the team and the manager tonight .


2.) 29 Aug 2018 23:33:46
We play better against sides that don’t press on to us , that’s what the Portuguese lads are struggling to come to terms with


 

 

10 Aug 2018 12:19:33
The deadline 10th August is nonsense. The real deadline is 31st. If you can loan a player with a guaranteed option to buy in January then it is exactly the same as the transfer window still being open. Doh! So we can still effectively buy any player until August including Byram!


1.) 10 Aug 2018 12:57:28
RC i think the PL can not loan players, but as you say we can loan a player untill January with the option to buy, therefore rendering the deadline pointless.

I think we might go up if we can. wait for it. make a couple of stellar signings. BOOM!

But I mean it. We are about as good as Norwich on our day. We can do it this season.

We also already pretty much play with one holding midfielder when we play Geddy alongside Colback at home so not sure how gung ho you want to be.

An experienced striker who has scored goals at international level and in the Premier League? We only need to get promoted from the Championship so yes, we would want him.

Worrall is as good as Lascelles in my opinion. Better than Wes Morgan was at 21! Digest that fact for a moment.

Morgan has captained a champions league team and Lascelles a Premier league one and neiother were better than Worrall at 21
