In January 1975 Forest appointed a new manager for a team and club that was in a spiral of decline.

The team had the same points equivalent and matches played as we find ourselves today and with a patched up team we finished 16th on the equivalent of 50 points. It took us 2 seasons to get promotion.

In January 2018 we find ourselves with new owners, investment and new manager having had the most successful transfer window in recent memory.

History tells us to be patient and ignore the detractors who cannot cope with radical change!

We did OK promoting journeymen footballers to the first team then so what can possibly go wrong now?

Onward and Upward!

Red really?
Sir Brian was different class to Karanka,No comparison
He'd already won the equivalent of the premier league and nearly conquered Europe.
Karanka has won promotion to the premier and then they got relegated.
That's clutching at straws mate

2.) 13 Feb 2018 21:29:14
And Ohare and McGovern were hardly journeyman they'd won the title for him at derby.
He didn't buy a team full overnight.
He waited till the summer got his best pal back then made a few signings.

3.) 13 Feb 2018 23:09:10
Bloomin eck FF You could wipe the smile from a childs face on Christmas Day.
Nice post Red. Very optimistic but still nice.

4.) 13 Feb 2018 23:54:52
FF79. Karanka has NOT bought a full team overnight he has simply strengthened his squad to get us through this season with little outlay or financial risk. He will review again in the summer when we will see more movement in and out as he shapes his squad. We have bought Lolley a good youngish player and brought experienced and combative midfielders (Guedioura and Watson) in on 2 and a half year deals. Kapino has signed for 18 months.

The rest are either on loan til the end of the season (Pantilimon, Figueiredo albeit with a view to a perm, Colback and Tomlin) and then Fuentes and Dejagah have signed short term deals to the end f the season. We may or may not look to extend any of these deals depending on whether they do the biz and we can afford them. So just the 4 permanent signings so far and the rest to have a look at. Hardly buying a whole team is it? Let’s give these players and the manager a chance eh? Something drastic needed changing with regards to the old guard. It’s going to take a bit of time to gel and get up to speed so some patience and perspective is needed imho.

Bang on with that Ruddy.

6.) 14 Feb 2018 06:23:32
Great post ruddy

7.) 14 Feb 2018 10:03:36
With you both on that Red and Ruddy.
FF79 could turn milk sour from 50 paces.

"Roses are Red,Violets are blue,come Saturday, Forest will score 2!!!"

9.) 14 Feb 2018 11:45:00
Would echo your comments Ruddy, good stuff and sensible.

10.) 14 Feb 2018 12:02:30
Thank you for cheering me up from the Grim Reaper 79 and his negativity which will no doubt predict Burton will score 3!!! against our "journeymen" signings

11.) 14 Feb 2018 12:32:09
No worries mate. as Del Boy days 'Eee Ooh Dares Rodders!!! Eee Ooh Dares!!!" 🚚🚚🚚 ( Couldn't find Del Boys van!! Lol)

12.) 14 Feb 2018 16:23:24
The grim reaper..... Doesn't he play for the Red Devil's?
Forest win 2-1

13.) 14 Feb 2018 19:52:46
Thing is tap it's better to have an opinion than not one at all.
This site wouldn't exist if we all agreed



05 Feb 2018 16:55:07
Rumoured we made a bid for Rhodes on deadline day.
Personally pleased we did not get him as I'm not convinced he would have been good for the team work ethic and has been off the boil in recent seasons?


1.) 05 Feb 2018 17:09:09
Fantastic signing in watson. Brilliant stuff ak and people involved, well pleased with signings. COYR let's get a decent run going now end the season as high as possible.

2.) 05 Feb 2018 22:38:58
Well red in exile,there's nothing wrong in trying to buy a Greek island on deadline day.
Give the players a nice place to go and relax?😁😁



01 Feb 2018 00:15:02
Hull Mail confirm that Michael Dawson is still a Hull player after the deadline.

Only hope is that they agree to cancel his contract after the dust settles so he can join as a free agent next week or after the return fixture at the City Ground?

We could do with him to complete the set!


1.) 01 Feb 2018 01:06:26
Hull have confirmed Dawson will be a Hull play untill seasons end, behond that they do not know.

2.) 01 Feb 2018 01:12:48
I'm pretty sure players had to be a free agent before the window closed to be able to sign them



31 Jan 2018 23:13:56
Northern Echo reporting Geddi is signing for us from Boro.


1.) 31 Jan 2018 23:33:30
If he hasn't signed yet or been released then he isn't coming. The deadline has gone.

2.) 01 Feb 2018 00:06:19
On a free agent



31 Jan 2018 19:53:27
Sky journo suggesting Flanagan from Liverpool on his way!


1.) 31 Jan 2018 20:30:04
While we talking to Liverpool bout Flanagan can we tap them up for Danny inggs

2.) 31 Jan 2018 22:13:06
Flanagan going to Bolton (Sky)

3.) 31 Jan 2018 22:32:43
Well I suppose its easy from Bolton for him to beat a path to his girlfriends door?

Nottingham Forest shirt for next season


1.) 18 Mar 2018 22:36:23
That's a table cloth or a skirt not a shirt.

2.) 19 Mar 2018 09:16:47
If that really turns out to be the shirt i will not be buying it, i would be too embarrassed.

3.) 19 Mar 2018 10:29:19
To quote KenDodd "Where,s me Shirt "

4.) 19 Mar 2018 10:30:47
Looks like a kilt.

5.) 19 Mar 2018 11:00:03
Teacloth. It's not April !st yet is it?

6.) 19 Mar 2018 11:34:58
Bit like our season. chequered!!! 😂😂😂

7.) 19 Mar 2018 11:51:31
If its good enough for the fashionistas at Bologna then a little Italian chic will look good on those fans with the larger figure? Haha!

8.) 19 Mar 2018 12:47:01
A little Italian chic would probably look very good in it.😙😙

9.) 19 Mar 2018 15:29:36
I hate it!!!!!

10.) 19 Mar 2018 16:00:09
It won't happen.
We are red and white,always have been always will be.

11.) 19 Mar 2018 16:19:33
We wore black socks in the 70's FF.
I can remember George Lyall, Duncan Mckenzie, Neil Martin and co.

12.) 19 Mar 2018 16:22:39
Reeled you in with that one!

13.) 19 Mar 2018 17:17:48
You can call it the Italian job red.



18 Mar 2018 14:53:08
Nathan Byrne is ripping it up for Wigan at right back. Would be a good upgrade for Eric?


1.) 18 Mar 2018 16:16:05
Eric is not even on the bench nowadays. I can see us paying him off and transferring him. Manc can fill in for Darikwa if necessary.

2.) 18 Mar 2018 20:26:41
Smith (loan)

The rest will all be sold or released that's what i think i know its a lot of players but they are not good enough.
The only reason i haven't included osborn is as much as i don't rate him that highly he has done really well at left back and he will be cover for any injuries that may be picked up at left back our midfield

3.) 18 Mar 2018 21:24:40
Made a list a while back
You can add
Cohen retired
Fuentes the elusive new left back.
Worrall will stay though.
Some clearout,but I'm sure it'll be done.

4.) 18 Mar 2018 22:15:27
Veloios should of been sold a long time ago when Lincoln or grimsby wanted him 😁bridcutt we need to play and mckay because when the loanees go back we have no one
Else better than them 🤨

5.) 19 Mar 2018 09:07:04
Bit harsh on Bridcutt. He’s not done a lot wrong. He’s only being kept out of the side because Colback is a better player and Prem standard. If we don’t sign him on a permanent after this loan, then Bridcutt could step in and would be a decent player alongside Watson.



17 Mar 2018 17:00:39
Blackman the Blunts goalkeeper man of the match today so play nicely before the Foreoaner's have a pop at another 0-0.

Improvement going forward and tactical flexibility.

Onwards and Upwards.


1.) 17 Mar 2018 20:47:24
We should expect draws away from home and wins at the CG, happy with that.👏



15 Mar 2018 21:56:28
That loving feeling is returning to the City Ground. At last we have a club infrastructure to rally around after years of make do and mend, smoke and mirrors?

We are not out the woods yet but it is becoming clearer that the commitment is there to make things happen?

AK is a proven winner and has invested wisely to date which is why he will be fully backed this summer by the owner.

Is now the time for fans to invest in the future and commit to back our owners punt at promotion next season?

Forest are currently 28/ 1 to get promotion next season. If the equivalent number of people to our best attendance bet a full price match ticket price on promotion next year and pledged the winnings into a City Ground Fund and the Team Forest punt came in, then the proceeds would fund a new 10,000 capacity Main Stand and other ground improvements.

Investing fans would then have a better than 1 in 4 chance in a ballot of winning a seat debenture in the new stand as a return on their punt.

Just a thought rather than investment advice on how fans could commit, engage and hold a real stake in the club? After all most of us have a matchday punt on a result?

Fantasy? Well IMO it's a damn sight better punt than the share flotation offer from those City Spivs back in the day?

Onward and Upward



1.) 15 Mar 2018 22:11:56
The spivs you refer too murdered our club

2.) 15 Mar 2018 23:11:52
Has someone been Messing with your talcum powder red?😂😂😂



15 Mar 2018 20:15:49
Good interview by the BBC with Karanka and a good and reassuring insight that we are on the right track. Quotes to note.

"For him (Marinakis) to not win one game is a failure. When we have discussions it is about winning; it is about the future, the next game not the past. "

"To be successful you need to be committed and you need to have committed people in every single area of the club, not just on the pitch. It is impossible if you don't work hard. I felt we needed to change because I felt there were people who weren't committed. "

Well no one can argue that the building blocks and investment have not been put in behind the scenes and on the pitch in the first window the EM/ AK A team have been together?

All we need to do now is convert the doubting Thomas's to the cause?

you know who you are! Alan Hardy is after you if you are not committed to our cause?


1.) 15 Mar 2018 20:43:10
Nice ed Ed!

2.) 15 Mar 2018 22:09:58
What is the opposite of a doubting Thomas? An agreeable Graham?
Whatever it is I'm one of them.
Baggies, 'appy 'ammers and Huddersfield beware next season.

Forest need to walk before they can run after the nightmares of WMD and Fawaz dismantling the club.
You will be very happy with the winning football under AK next season as he replicates his Boro promotion season scoring 60+ goals and a positive goal difference of 30+!
Cheer up and get behind our leader Victor?

What am I wrong about with my post?
1.The thumbs down were not you and Skegs or
2. Karanka is not a decent manager doing his best for the club?

By the way I'll settle for him achieving the 48% win ratio he got a Boro which is the relevant stat in your nonsense!

Your two thumbs down will be FF79 and Skegsjay who are getting very bitter and picky in their old age. They like many have forgotten when we last had a decent manager who is trying to do the best for our club before self interest because he has an absolute faith in his own ability which is why he is getting a tune out of the good pro's he has acquired and retained?
Onward and Upward

Snow ball fights are banned on elf and safety grounds so that won't have happened as they get wrapped up in cotton wool instead.

Would not put it past them to have a floodlight failure if they start to get tonked at home?

Agreed he could develop into a box to box midfielder but the we will have Ryan Yeats pushing for a place next season.

This whole Direby postponement farce stinks as a complete set up.

Think back. Rowett was setting up his get out of jail free card prior to the Forest match with his missing persons list and drafting in youngsters on the bench because he knew that if he lost then history shows the Candy Man is not averse to pulling the trigger at this time of year?

Rowett scraped a result but also lost Huddlestone and will be nursing a few other knocks from last weekend. Lose to Cardiff and at best he is playing Championship Play off Roulette which he knows Derby cannot hack!

Snow on Saturday after TV scenes at Bramall Lane clearing and finishing the match gives them the opportunity.

Imagine the conversation internally?

The key fixture of the Direby run with a bigger missing list for Cardiff.

We could do with not playing a weakened team against a team who have won 6 on the bounce?

“How do we get the fixture postponed”?

“Direby have a duty to try and get the fixture on”.

However, a Elf & Safety Assessment can always be directed to err on the side of extreme caution to come up with the answer you want to present?

Sunday looked suspiciously like going through the motions of getting the game on but setting up the Stadium Safety Officer to toe the party line?


Police clearly did not support the decision and so would have resourced the match?

Main roads around the city were clearly operational.

The weather forecast which was correct stated that the overnight snow would clear during the day.

The retail park by all accounts was open for business?
Come and spend money in our super store to pay for “Santa’s Snow Helpers”?

Football fans are generally more hardy and determined than discretionary shoppers at getting to their destination.

Would the same decision have been made if Cardiff had the same injury list and Direby, a fully fit squad? -No Way!

Warburton’s favourite quote “ fine margins and taking your chances” Well Direby certainly exploited theirs? - However caught offside by VAR!

Verdict – Guilty as charged.

Penalty -Refund all Cardiff’s costs including their supporters. Hefty fine for non-fulfilment of the fixture and a 3 point deduction .

Shame on all Sheep! Championship football again next season.

Case closed.
