Ryan Yates is being linked with a £500k bid from Portsmouth.

Hull City also linked with a loan move for the player.




24 May 2017 20:41:29
Forest linked with Arsenal's young Polish defender Kristian Bielik.

Made 10 appearances at the end of last season on loan at Birmingham City and Arsenal will be looking to loan him out again next season for some first-team exposure.


1.) 24 May 2017 20:48:59
I am sure he would be an asset but we cannot play 2 20 year olds together at centre back if we are to challenge? He can play as a holding midfielder as well so that might be an option if he has the legs?

2.) 24 May 2017 20:54:31
Same site is linking us with an assortment of poor players.
Hope they are wrong, joe garner another one, please no;

3.) 24 May 2017 22:58:33
Not sure we need any more strikers but Garners all action, tough style of play could give us something different and prove a good foil for our less physical players, no defenders like to play against this type of dog with a bone never say die attitude .
Wouldn, t pay a lot for him or pay him a fortune but at the right price could be someone who, d respond to the current management.

4.) 24 May 2017 23:25:28
Paid a million last time and he gets booked more than he scores .
All action and no quality
Scored most of his goals for carlisle and preston at league one and two level.
Thats his level.

5.) 25 May 2017 15:14:49
Correct mate. We cannot afford to get it wrong this time round, reckon we need a proven Championship, no nonsense, CB, a bit of bite in midfield, we haven't anyone in those positions that makes the opposing side think twice about taking us on.

6.) 25 May 2017 15:47:56
Thing is rogie, we need players who can improve the squad and are better than we have.
I see nothing in Garner, Waghorn, Tavanier and Mckay that would improve us and none of them are good enough to hold down a regular place.
Need some midfielders and couple defenders that's all, no more strikers.

7.) 25 May 2017 18:51:53
Agreed mate. Don't think we're that far away. Bit of self belief, i.e. Ipswich game, and who knows where it can take us. 🤔🤔🤔.

8.) 25 May 2017 19:47:08
If you see nothing in Garner then where does that leave Jamie Ward who did so much in the Ipswich game, very similar two players, always in your face .

9.) 25 May 2017 20:17:05
Garner has been tried at this level twice and failed miserably.
Hardley scored for us and only managed 6 goals for preston in the championship before rangers paid 1.8 million for him, where he's scored 7 in Mickey mouse football.
His goals come at league 1 level.
Wardy has a bit more about him.

10.) 25 May 2017 20:23:34
Garner is not as versatile as Ward and has not cut it in the Championship. Wardy all day long for me.

Garner would do a fantastic job at The Pies!

11.) 26 May 2017 06:19:05
If ya want and ex forest player who can get in your face and put the effort and score only a few goals why don't we get simon cox back Carlo?
Fact is both aren't good enough for this league that we aren't in and they would be reserve players at best. ward is also far better than garner.
If we start buying some of the player from rangers then next season will be a bigger struggle than last.

12.) 26 May 2017 09:52:10
I'd have a punt bringing Dawson back, experienced in this league and solid.

13.) 26 May 2017 16:05:41
Could not afford his wages! Be a good signing thought.

14.) 26 May 2017 17:24:52
You forgot to add expensive .



15 Jul 2016 12:37:00
Forest have taken young goalkeeper, Edward Ogbebor-Onaiwu, on trial from Charlton Ath.

The talented young goalkeeper, also being watched by Leicester City, is an English-born Nigerian who has chosen to represent his African roots at International youth level.




17 Jul 2015 16:54:42
Forest are apprently in the running for Hertha Berlin striker - Sandro Wagner - with Hull City, Blackburn Rovers and Sheffield Wednesday as competition.

Wagner still has a year left on his contract in Germany so unless they're going to let him go for free I can't see how we can compete. Decent striker, even though he never quite cut it in the Bundesliga.


1.) 18 Jul 2015 08:16:03
Scored three goals in the last ten years. Just what we need.

2.) 18 Jul 2015 09:49:47
He once was at Bayern München, decent striker but never got the chance to shine in Berlin - would be worth a go and is going to be released by Hertha. That is what I said a year ago - raid the German lower tiers or out of favour players of the Bundesliga. Wagner never scored many goals in Germany but it is a huge difference playing against Bayern or Dortmund or in the case of Forest - against Rotherham and Derby ;-)

Could rip Championship defences apart. Looking forward to seeing him in a forest shirt

3.) 18 Jul 2015 12:28:40
We have enough strikers who two in two seasons



12 Sep 2014 17:14:08
Louis Laing on his way over the river to County if you believe the local rag. Loan deal, obviously.

I think that would be a good deal for all parties involved.


1.) 12 Sep 2014 17:23:44
Done deal, will be good for him to get regular football and give SP chance to see him in competitive matches.

2.) 14 Sep 2014 17:51:47
Great to send the lad on loan but quite frankly I wouldn't lend them anything, much sooner see us help other local clubs whose deluded fans aren't continuously dreaming of an implosion at forest - and are quite vociferous about it as well. Sooner they go bust the better as far as I'm concerned.

People moaning about rotation is doing my nut in.

PM is doing a great job so far, we've recruited well and we're playing an entertaining brand of football. Rotation is one of his policies and let's not forget we're in a period of playing 8 games in little over a month (Sept 11 - Oct 14) , so rotation is probably a shrewd move at the moment.

We've not even made it to Christmas and a lot of fans are moaning and criticising, which to me is ludicrous. Let PM get on with it and enjoy the entertainment for once.


1.) 19 Sep 2016 15:33:47
Rotation is fine if you've got a real need but at the moment PM needs to establish his 1st choice 11. He, like any good manager should always pick his best team and if that's not possible make the odd change. 5/ 6 changes every game is not going to work. Players that play together build understanding and work as a team. At this moment in time that isn't happening. I'll just mention 2 teams, Barnsley/ Huddersfield. Same team the majority of the time. Tell me we are not as capable as those 2?

2.) 19 Sep 2016 15:36:03
Most of the so called rotation is due to injuries.

3.) 19 Sep 2016 15:37:22
I meant to add also, Ranieri at Chelsea was constantly tinkering. Ranieri at Leicester wasn't. The difference = Champions but more importantly a team. It's quite simple really.

4.) 19 Sep 2016 17:08:17
I reckon the rotation policy will settle down a bit more when a) we have fewer injuries and b) we emerge from the frantic first few months of the season.

Most months of the season only contain 4-5 games but with the League Cup and international windows the opening few months are always hectic - Seven games in August and six games in September is quite hard going. 14 games in 57 days is a game every 4 days!

5.) 19 Sep 2016 18:20:43
It's doing my nut in because most of the rotation has been down to injuries/ suspensions. Also with all the new players that have come in towards the end of the transfer window, how on earth is he suppose to know so soon who his best 11 are. Hats off to PM, doing a great job!



01 Jul 2016 17:18:52
Floyd Ayite has signed for Fulham so that one is out of the picture. Shame, looked a promising link.




19 Apr 2016 10:26:28
Lars Veldwijk attracting interest from China.

Could be an early Christmas present for Forest, the Chinese usually pay good money (usually over the odds) and we could get shot of a player that, for one reason or another, has not been a success.

Even just £3-4m would be nice.


1.) 19 Apr 2016 13:06:21
be lucky to get 3/ 4 million let alone 3-4 million.

2.) 19 Apr 2016 13:26:13
If they offer 300 to 400k I would snatch their hands off!

3.) 19 Apr 2016 13:44:46
Ok, maybe just £1-2m would do it :)

4.) 19 Apr 2016 13:53:24
I'd take 500k and reinvest on youth.



11 Apr 2016 16:11:52
According to social media and various other NFFC forums there is a planned 75th minute 'walk-out' in the offing for tonight's game v Brighton and HA.

Not only is it bad timing but it also seems a bit mis-directed. What are we protesting exactly? Is it clear? Not to me it's not and it's a terrible idea anyway. This kind of things need a clear objective and needs to be planned properly. Too soon for me.

Anyone in favour?


1.) 11 Apr 2016 16:51:45
I ain't stoppin that late!

2.) 11 Apr 2016 16:58:11
Be better if everyone turned their backs @46 mins/ stroke of half time because that's the same number of mins as points collected.
Should keep them turned until everyone had left the pitch too.

Don't think it's protest time to be fair. We always knew this season was going to be garbage but it's no excuse for some of the football that's been played and maybe that's a good enough reason for some.

No ones happy apart from those who got paid to produce such rubbish.

A point a game ain't good enough after four years of so called building and stability.

3.) 11 Apr 2016 17:18:38
I know things aren't great at the moment but booing players and protesting about who knows what isn't going to help anyone. Stupid and pointless.

4.) 11 Apr 2016 18:30:22
I can't manage to get to the game tonight but i think the fans should sing and cheer the team on, God knows we need all the help we can get, protests against the players is futile, it is the owner we should target, he thinks he is a one man band, this is a famous club he is ruining, get the back room sorted and then step back. I would welcome a buy out from someone who knows how to run an English club 😡.



27 Feb 2016 14:12:15
Today's line-up for "exciting" foorball is.

De Vries, Lichaj, Jokic, Mancienne, Mills, Vaughan, Tesche, Cohen, Osborn, Ward, Oliveira. SUBS: Evtimov, Hobbs, Gardner, Grant, Mendes, Walker Blackstock.


1.) 27 Feb 2016 14:17:58
Cohen has got a start, Walker might come on Mendes will replace Tesche?

2.) 27 Feb 2016 15:46:29
Oh God. stop crying, Wonky.

The whingeing on here is ridiculous. This season is all about transition and we're still managing to compete. Just calm down.

3.) 27 Feb 2016 16:57:58
We didn't even compete today, just laid down and died.

Why compare Colback with Grealish? Two different types of player.

£50k per week is too much for a Championship side to be paying for one player, but then again we're probably paying well in excess of £50k per week for several players that rarely make the matchday squad. Maybe £50k per week would be doable if the rest of the wage bill is balanced correctly?

We didn't need defenders in the Summer. We had Figs, Fox and Worrall, then went on to sign Dawson and Hefele. Five was enough, so much so that we were able to send Worrall out on loan and at the time no one complained. don't try and change the past to suit your agenda.

I think it's too soon to be comparing Karanka's era with MON's.

Karanka's dismissal was harsh, yet another Manager not given enough time. And the performances under MON have been industrious but not very pretty with mixed results.

Really don't see how you can favour one over the other at present without having some kind of bias or trying to assert some hidden agenda.

So are we blaming this one on Team Marinakis or Aitor Karanka?

C'mon chaps, gimme a thumbs down if AK is to blame again, I like to be kept in the loop on this blame game.

I'd let him go if we got a really good offer, say £5m+. If not, keep him. He's versatile and works hard, plus he's from the academy which is nice.

He's decent at LWB but, for me, he's too slow to be truly effective in a wide position. IMO, his best position is as a central midfield work-horse. Work hard and give it simple.

"Never been No1 at any of his previous clubs"

Isn't this another statistic that can be 'made to whatever you like'?

First of all, yes he has. He was first choice at Sunderland, in the Prem, for around a season and a half. Second of all, he's largely been second choice at (three) other clubs because they are top flight clubs (Man City, Watford, Deportivo). We are not.

Pants is probably the best keeper we've had at the club for a long time. Yes, he struggles with the ball around his feet, whether a low show or distribution-wise, but that's what you get with a 6' 7" monster. He makes tough saves look easy a lot of the time as he naturally fills so much of his goal. He does come and claim the high ball much better than our previous custodians, despite the criticism and, more importantly, despite the fact we've had a p*ss-poor or makeshift defence for large parts of his stay here.

He's a good Championship level keeper and deserves our support, not criticism.

Up the Pants!

Cheers, chaps. I'm glad it's not just me.

Can you imagine the furore if there was more riding on the game? If Leeds were still in the hunt for automatic promotion? Or if Villa were still trying to seal a play-off place? Would they have still let Villa score a 'walk-though' goal? I doubt it. Then the media would've had a field day ripping Leeds apart.

Most players that go down are just looking for a rest anyway, or buying their team some time in an act of time wasting.

You're injured, so what! This is football, not the ballet. Unless your bloody heads falling off - Game on!
