Bbc site says we are after St. Mirren winger Lewis Morgan 21. Scotland U21. Can he play centre back??


1.) 16 Oct 2017 07:28:34
So with MW at the helm we only look at players in the Scottish market?
Slightly hindering us a little don't you think?

2.) 16 Oct 2017 08:17:04
Gordon Strachan hit the nail on the head. The talent pool in Scotland is not physically strong enough.

If Forest keep signing these lighweights we will be playing League 1 football next season.

3.) 16 Oct 2017 08:29:08
Redfin It is a new Manger we should be looking for not not a Scottish lightweight.

4.) 16 Oct 2017 14:21:27
There may well be one manager available in a few weeks time. Martin O'Neill is the one manager we have never had that we should have had and he showed the other night he can still get sides up for the challenges. He may well have one more job in him and if the RoI don't qualify for the World Cup he may just be available for the January transfer window.

I'm not advocating change as such but availability of alternatives may be just as important in the timing of a managerial change as results.

5.) 16 Oct 2017 20:37:46
O'Neil once stated in a tv interview that he would like to manage Forest before he hangs up his managers jacket and I hope he is true to his word
Saying this I hope that MW can find the right formula and change our fortunes but with us conceding most games and never looking like we can score a hat full I doubt it

People say you can't keep changing managers, you need to give them a chance to stamp their mark and I agree as long as the manager is the right one
Is MW the right one? I hope he is but with his dodgy selections and tactics I fear he is not

6.) 16 Oct 2017 21:52:56
Another way of looking at it is,most of the players he's inherited.
He has to sell our star striker.
He's given a budget and wage structure to work to,which looks low.
Can't see Oneil working with those restraints.
If you look at the big picture,we are signing young players for the future,
At the end of the season we will be saying goodbye to Fox Hobbs Eric Mills Vaughan Chohen Ward Carayol.
Most contracts are up.
Part of that is the reason we havn't signed defenders yet,
You can't buy a team when you already have a 25 man squad,it takes time.

7.) 17 Oct 2017 09:39:22
We should have a self imposed transfer embargo on all things Scottish.

Martin O'Neil will not come back into club management for family reasons.

Warbo is staying as the three standout candidates who would do a better job are not available to Forest.

We need to get through the season to clear out those whose contracts expire next year with the exception of Lichaj.

We need to sign/loan a couple of strong pacey midfielders, pick the best 2 central defenders for Warbo and the team to survive the season.

Other than that we are going in the right direction of travel!

8.) 17 Oct 2017 11:07:00
Couldn't agree more red,trouble is to many fickle fans who want overnight success.

9.) 17 Oct 2017 20:31:33
I do not expect overnight success but would like to see us putting more pressure on the oppositions back line.
The players he has "inherited" seem to be out of favour such as Eric mustapha and Vellios even though tgey ate proven to give us pace and power.
Instead he plays the diddy men and a striker on the wing?
He failed to bring in defensive cover but added more midfield bench warmers?
Right direction of travel????



27 Sep 2017 09:50:49
With all this negativity about Warbo and the "new regime" let's just remind ourselves of the superb work our owner has done off the pitch in such a short space of time. Mr.Marinakis has put people in to steady this great club and help it survive. The management of our team however is seperate. Yes the owner is in charge of hiring and firing but it was reported that he told Warbo he would get time. He seems a man of his word which is a rare thing these days. We don't want to rub new owners up the wrong way with negativity about the new regime.


1.) 27 Sep 2017 10:47:59
Redfin all the critiscm has been aimed at warbo. Most on here have been grafefull to the regime in general and are aware that the club is in very good and safe hands. However i have said this before thst the playing and management staff are the shop window. let's be honest warbo has had 7 months to shape thus team and it is as disjointed as ever witb warbs ignoring the obvious. Ppl who say wait till jan for more signings are naive as we all knew the defence was a priority. I would not trust him with any more money sorry but it just ain't happening and at some point the chairman not marinakis will wake up to the facts that warbs was a mistake. Not a problem we all make mistakes and its the finding out and admitting them that is the hard bit. If their was a good pattern and signs of improvement then thd transision would be bearable. It ain't and the axe maybe hovering!!!!

2.) 27 Sep 2017 11:40:42
I hope the chairman has that conversation with Warbs before chopping him rutland. If he decides to walk rather than change he is the wrong man. don't get me wrong I am not a Warbo lover but I just don't want to see half a dozen managers and staff come and go and drain money that could be spent on players disappear down the drain.

3.) 27 Sep 2017 12:38:39
Agreed redfin

4.) 27 Sep 2017 12:59:29
You make a good point Redfin but Warburton wants to play his style.
If he was told to change his style of play would he be happy and want to stay and give is his best efforts?

5.) 27 Sep 2017 14:09:38
We may find out soon reddog. The owner and chairman will not stand by while we slide down the table for much longer. Results need to change which may require a change on style or formation. We will see if he can adapt or if he will walk.

6.) 27 Sep 2017 19:59:53
The owner should have to tell him to change as that's undermining him also if a quality (not my words) manager can't see his style isn't working and do something about it then what hope is there?we don't want owners telling managers what to do!well we didn't the last 5years anyway.

7.) 27 Sep 2017 20:11:38
You keep going on Rutland about how Warburton can't do the job maybe your right maybe your wrong so who is the manager you would bring in to sort this so called mess out it would be interesting to see who you would choose.

8.) 27 Sep 2017 20:47:02
Skeggs asked the same question. I think a manager with less ego and more common sense would pick lijcha hobbs and velios. Have a skipper and a better grip of defending. I may have opinions but i cannot choose. But managers like holloway, big sam and neil warnock seem to quickly get their players playing with endeavour and look like battlers. Big big passion and where sometimes the foofball jsn't the prettiest they get at the opposition. The players under theses managers play well above their abilities. Its simple motivation.

9.) 27 Sep 2017 21:06:18
Nigel is supposed to be able to organise and motivate a team, now we have the off field set up, and in theory better players than Albion he may join us if asked.

10.) 27 Sep 2017 21:13:19
A manager without an ego?
That's called a yes man,so you'd be okay he'd listen and do everything the coach fans ask for.
Great idea let's go for

11.) 27 Sep 2017 22:05:02
I said less ego and as for holloway he has motivated average teams to the very very top. Ppl bang on about king billy, king of bs. A meglomaniac. Remember paul hart??? He knew how to harness youthfull endeavour, played a bit of footy but that was not enough for forest. He got sacked, disgracefully in my opinion.

12.) 27 Sep 2017 23:56:40
Your right about Paul Hart,our owner at the time sold our three best players,or to be correct let them run their contracts out and leave for nothing.
No investment the next summer and he got the blame,
Not just the manager when things aren't right,it's a big team effort.
The owners appoint a manager,so ultimately if you don't like the manager,then you are questioning the judgement of the owners.
If you want the owners to tell Warburton to change,then that's interference and back to fawaz ways

13.) 27 Sep 2017 23:55:07
Big Sam would be a good choice but are you not fed up with changing managers I know I am

14.) 28 Sep 2017 08:21:46
I do not want to swap managers. Consistency will work, it just takes time. Stop panicking over some poor results. MW is a pretty decent manager, and at least we are trying to play football. If you coach players to play one way and then switch and panic they will do the same lose confidence and you will lose your job. Keep a consistent approach, make slow changes, allow the squad to adapt and learn and build up confidence and then you've changed style, tactics and have not lost face or the players confidence. My only issue is that he keeps switching formation and seems to not change a couple of problem players.

15.) 29 Sep 2017 13:21:49
I'm fed up like everyone else with all the changes in management we've had. so Warbs. Please turn things around starting tomorrow,much in the fashion Fergie had to,all those years ago!!! And yes,it would be great if also if you/we could go on to enjoy some of the success he had!!! COYRS!!!



06 Jun 2017 20:06:38
A mate of mine is a chelsea supporter and he reckons he read it somewhere that 2 of their youngsters are heading to forest on loan. can't remember the names but I will work on it.


1.) 06 Jun 2017 21:11:49
Were you drunk then?

2.) 07 Jun 2017 11:20:50
Haha long name. Just saying what i heard. I have looked myself and can't find anything. But this is a rumour site bud.

3.) 07 Jun 2017 11:22:13
Probably end up with Kerry Dixon, and "Chopper" Harris! 😂😂😂.

4.) 08 Jun 2017 16:45:01
I think Redfin has got confused with Jack Daniels and Johnnie Walker? Hic!

I am staying positive. After a poor first half against Bristol we came back strong and almost took something from a game I didn't see us winning before hand. With 3 good signings in Jan in key areas we can push on and hopefully cut out the mistakes. Then another couple in next summer we need to see real improvement next season. that's how I see it. Also, I read that big sam has to sell midfielders to bring in Nzonzi. I reckon Warbo should be on the blower asking how much they want.


1.) 17 Dec 2017 18:55:44



06 Nov 2017 09:56:34
Lets hope Mancienne stays fit now. His partnership with Worrall could be a good one. Reminds me of Morgan and Chambers. Chambers attacked the ball while Morgan swept up behind him. Worrall is still learning and needs a player like mance beside him cleaning up.


1.) 06 Nov 2017 11:04:23
I thought Mancienne was absolutely brilliant. To a man they was but he in particular was a colossus. Didn't put a foot wrong and in my opinion was man of the match.

2.) 06 Nov 2017 14:30:29
He was outstanding winning the ball on the front foot. Tbh qpr made our CBs look like the best in the world!!!

3.) 07 Nov 2017 19:10:13
I think it might also be because our CBs are not having to cover the right back now



23 Sep 2017 21:07:34
Whats wrong with 2 old fashioned wingers getting crosses in for Murphy and Brereton or Cummings or even Velios picking up the knock downs? I would like to see Hobbs and Manc at cb ( much as I rate Worrall) as we need to steady the ship. Give them a few games to get back in the groove and they will close the back door.


1.) 23 Sep 2017 22:14:05
i agree. I feel no one dares jump on Worrall's case and it is Mills, Mills, Mills fault. DF conceded v few with Mills, so what's changed?
When Mills is switched out we still concede a plenty. Imo Worrall does a lot of good work but is too often caught out over-committing when he need not. He gets caught flat footed or pulled to help a team mate, when he should hold back & then leaves wide open holes - too eager through inexperience.
Mills & Hobbs may not be the quickest, & Fox not too keen to push up, but maybe this is good as when any 2 of these 3 play CB at least they 'stay' & don't get caught out. Sorry for me Worrall needs time out.

2.) 23 Sep 2017 22:17:43
Unfortunately we only have 2 left sided wingers. Personally I think Darikwa has more potential as a right winger in the Antonio mould that playing full back where he seems to get turned too easily and switches off?

3.) 23 Sep 2017 22:08:51
Sorry they won't,it's been tried before and it didn't work then,So why would it work now?
Hobbs is a waste of space as he cannot stay fit,that's a fact and will never change.
Should have let manciene go flatters to deceive and spends too much time out with niggles.

4.) 23 Sep 2017 22:50:45
Needs a skate up for sure, I think Worrall and all young lads have huge potential but have had a lot of pressure on them some of senior players need step up.
For Fulham I would like to see something like.
Lichij. Hobbs. Manchienne. Traoure
Darwika Dowell Osbourne Carayol


5.) 24 Sep 2017 00:34:30
What about McKay Red Rascal? Can't we fit him in somewhere?



17 Sep 2017 19:46:12
On a positive note. Its great to not only see our youth teams doing well but also our loaned out players. Grant and Yates at County and Ariyibi is doing well at MK Dons. All rosey for our club eh? Please be positive and don't start saying they only look good in lower leagues. The boys are doing us proud.


1.) 17 Sep 2017 19:57:14
Redefine good post! I always thought with the lack of pace in our team Arikibi should have been kept and given a chance but perhaps Warbo seems some flaw in him he doesn't like

2.) 18 Sep 2017 10:54:31
This will not go down well but if have put bb on loan. tbh sent him to county, do him good getting goals on a regular basis instead of sitting in the wing.

3.) 18 Sep 2017 11:22:12
If he were to go out on loan, he would do better than County.

4.) 18 Sep 2017 15:27:34
Why is it on here, when we lose a game its doom and gloom!



26 Aug 2017 22:37:25
As I live near Ipswich, I took my son to see them play Fulham today. Ipswich were aweful and Fulham were solid and well in control. Should have been 5 nil. I watched Mcdonald as we were linked with him and I have to say Warbo knows the type of player he needs. He is a big lump. Not quick but plays infront of the back 4 but when the full backs push up he drops in as a third centre back. He breaks up the play and when he decides to come forward its hard for anyone to pick him up. He would fit our style perfectly but not 7 mill worth.

I know Dowell is good but its hard to see our own players suffering while we develop someone elses youngster. If there was a chance of buying him fine but I can't see it. You end up with him leaving and our player wanting to are ok to bolster positions your short in.

It all takes time and patience. Consistency will come with more games. We need to strengthen at the back as we have no depth due to sicknotes.

The players that have come in are fine. Better than the dross that was signed last season. Our form reflects a side with new players adapting to a new style. Win a couple lose a couple. Like I said before, another couple of transfer windows, move some on and bring some in and we can start to judge MW.

I know skeggs. Its crazy. If anyone had said to me straight after the Ipswich game last season, we would be just off playoffs after 13 or so games I would be over the moon. I know there are improvements to be made but people need to get real.

Maybe in a couple of transfer windows time MW will be getting what he wants from the team. Its a huge turn around in a short space of time. I don't have a short memory. I am just saying it was poor yesterday. Other games could be totaly different. I live half hour from ipswich so don't get up to many games. My son is now into forest so hope to be at more home games soon.
