I agree a nervy match but the players that shone today and would be in my view in the squad next season Osborne ( def MoM today ) Lolley ( signing of the season ) Bereton ( best game since Arsenal today ) Watson, Bridcutt ( replaces Colback ) Fig, Fox, Cash, Abe

Best game since Arsenal? He was awful. His constant diving finally paid off with the penalty which he took well but an inch to the right and it wouldn’t of gone in. Keeper had it covered. Finally made the right decision with his ball over to Lolly which I commend him for. Last five minutes made up for a very boring, lack lustre performance by the whole team.

2.) 15 Apr 2018 10:52:34
You should be a pundit bongo - if he had gone an inch to the right he wouldn’t have scored?? But he didn’t and he did score 👍 happy?

3.) 15 Apr 2018 11:24:21
the penalty was not a dive the only shots there keeper had covered were the ones he saved and panto got his hand to there goal did he have it covered ?

4.) 15 Apr 2018 12:34:32
If had had gone an inch lower against Brentford we'd have been drooling o er a wonder goal.
Think Ben deserves more credit and having the bottle to take the pen,he wasn't letting anyone else have it.
Not easy being the lone striker in struggling side

5.) 15 Apr 2018 15:40:04
As someone said "fine margins fine margins"
BB great attitude for a player so young

6.) 15 Apr 2018 17:33:27
Brereton is class. He is a kid still but his runs are excellent and this season he has added more physicality to his game. Strikers can’t score if they don’t get given the ball and he does not get given the ball in good positions enough and our midfield doesn’t see his runs. He also lost confidence at times this season due to lack of goals and service. Fans who expect a 19 year old to do better are deluded. Personally I expect more going forward from our experienced midfielders who between them have a lot of championship and premiership experience though Colback and Watson have no doubt helped to protect our defence, they should be able to hit 20 yard through balls and see Breretons runs, same with Geddy and Tomlin too! Lolley and Cash are the two that seem to link with B.B. most who are both relatively young and in experienced! Need a ply maker desperately



07 Jan 2018 09:52:06
Gus Poyet it is then! Invited guest today did manage AK Athens but failed in China and Spain recently so not inspirational.

1.) 07 Jan 2018 11:32:49
He won't be the manage just because he's been ivited doesn't mean he has the job tony adams was there a few weeks ago as a vip he's not even been mentioned.



23 Dec 2017 08:42:05
Any Reason why we are Linked with Steve Naismith a right winger with injury problems? However he is Scottish!

doc m

1.) 23 Dec 2017 09:24:49
Injury problems? Scottish? A position we don't really need to strengthen? Why wouldn't we be interested in him? Sounds a perfect fit (no pun intended) for us.

2.) 23 Dec 2017 11:15:33
And if we are looking to move some of the old sick notes on, we need new injury prone players to replace them. .

3.) 23 Dec 2017 12:43:43
It's only paper links, if you were to believe them all we'd be signing two right wingers.

4.) 23 Dec 2017 16:54:50
Or two right plonkers!!! Merry Christmas!!! 😂😂😂



16 Oct 2017 08:43:26
I would agree that our defence is not all the problem it is the lightweight literally and metaphorically mid field. We never replaced Henry Lansbury like for like . Osborne is best on the wing and I am afraid bridcutt is afraid to tackle or pass in a forward direction or go past a man . However the management team can only do they're best with offers for players and if they don't want to come what can they do?

03 Oct 2017 22:36:31
I thought Oliver Burke signed for WBA yet not seen his name on the team sheet yet. ? Loan in Jan if still not playing.

doc m

1.) 04 Oct 2017 10:02:17
He made 2 sub appearences, in his first 2 games after signing and has been injured since.

He is on his comeback, having played an hour in the check a trade trophy U21 team , last night.

So, in short, no!

2.) 05 Oct 2017 15:54:57
Burkes done nowt since he left, that 13 mill looks a cracking piece of business.

3.) 06 Oct 2017 22:46:31
One bit of business fawaz did get right,but I'll still get crucified for saying it,who cares,No way was he worth anywhere near that.
Personally think he'll end up with more clubs than Rory mcalroy

4.) 07 Oct 2017 09:10:40
13m may look like good business (and was IMO), but RBL did make a profit on it, so they're happy enough with it too!

The madness of modern football, championship player sold for 13m, makes 5 starts in a season for a Bundesliga team and increases in value!?!

But let's not write off a 20 year old so soon, remember how exciting he looked last August? Time will tell.

5.) 07 Oct 2017 20:58:34
Was scotland under 21 captain yesterday hardly contributed and was taken off at half time.
Seen it all before with Franz Carr, Good business.

6.) 09 Oct 2017 12:35:15
Never quite understood why everyone was raving about him in the first place? Head down and straight line merchant with no tactical awareness. Franz Carr Mark 2

7.) 11 Oct 2017 19:31:10
Agreed mate. however he nearly scored one of the best ever goals v Oldham in the league cup final.

Well done Ben B another goal in an England shirt! He is one to hang onto.

doc m

1.) 18 Jul 2018 23:00:51
Well said the achievements of Ben at such a young age should be applauded and we should all be proud Forest fans that one of our own is so successfully.
He has had a difficult season but still giving his all.
Well done Ben keep the faith.
Onwards and upwards you redssssss



12 Jul 2018 20:28:46
Can someone explain to me why if you have three Centre backs trippier and young as wing backs why oh why is one of the three Centre backs Kyle walker? Most Croatians were 6 ft at least. Walker tried to head the ball and the Croatian has his foot against his head . If Cahil had been there I don't think it would have happened . Why didn't the referee blow for a high dangerous kick? I am just a sad old 1966 rememberer Forest fan.

doc m

1.) 12 Jul 2018 21:24:20
Because the defeder stooped to head the ball do that at any level of football and you chance getting kicked,it wasn’t dangerous kicking it was bad defending

2.) 12 Jul 2018 21:52:49
Agreed, Walker waited for the ball, he should've attacked it. Stones guilty of ball watching for the 2nd. Although considering Manducic only had one leg, his reactions were class

3.) 12 Jul 2018 21:57:57
Tell me if you can why Kyle is a Centre Back

4.) 12 Jul 2018 22:12:06
Sorry mate I’ll have to refer you to Gareth Southgate to answer that,don’t understand it either

5.) 12 Jul 2018 23:02:54
Thank God it’s nearly here - the new domestic season that is.

6.) 13 Jul 2018 03:00:04
Said same doc at the time.Anywhere else on the pitch and the ref gives a free kick for high foot.Bad defending yes but still a high foot regardless.

7.) 13 Jul 2018 05:17:45
He was in there to give the back line some pace because Maguire and Stones aren’t the most mobile of players. To me it’s horses for courses. You only need walker there if you’re playing against quick strikers, otherwise I’d have gone for Cahill or maybe even Dier but I’m not the England Manager and thankful for how far we got.

8.) 13 Jul 2018 10:16:19
I think Southgate is a believer of 'Don't change a winning team', as am I. Thus Walker remained at CB throughout

9.) 13 Jul 2018 10:53:35
Perks or a low head mate

10.) 13 Jul 2018 11:57:00
Also who was it who miss kicked a clearance that went straight up in the air that was I think miss headed by the Croatian and then the secind goal

11.) 13 Jul 2018 12:00:25
I have had a good idea why don’t we put Osborn in one of the three Centre back positions as he is quick I know he is slight of height but this idea I got from the England manager



17 Jun 2018 15:54:45
There should be no rash decisions regarding players ie I expect the two Portuguese players to have been watched since the beginning of last season before a significant financial outlay. So AK will already have earmarked any other players he thinks we need. No club with the risks of outplaying such huge sums of money will do otherwise. As an example Marriott will have been watched as potentially Grabbon Bamford and several more. Bids could have been made eg 3m for Marriott but been rejected and like any bargaining waiting to see what happens next. If Mariott truly was the next Britt then we would have bid more the sum they want. We can assume therefore he is not the wonder striker Fry thinks he is! Or not at 7 m. So others are being looked at I am sure. I do not think AK will settle for second best but also knows we need potentially two strikers and of course we also have to shed half a dozen. So we may put names forward but I am sure AK knows what he is doing.

doc m

1.) 17 Jun 2018 16:09:12
Barry fry has said forest have made no contact regarding Marriott.

2.) 17 Jun 2018 17:27:07
S r85, Fry said Forest have not made a bid for Marriott but has also said Marriott's agent has spoken to the club, our manager has spoken to their manager, and our sporting director has talked to them about Marriott. Off course if he were our first choice a bid would have been put in by now.

3.) 17 Jun 2018 20:13:52
Can anyone imagine Kenny Burns with a hairstyle like Neymar's!!!??? Woooose!!!

4.) 17 Jun 2018 22:48:42
Brilliant Rogie.

5.) 17 Jun 2018 23:14:35
Fry is a comedian. He has been hawking his centre forward to every club he thinks can afford to bid. No-one will pay the quoted price. He is under contract and his price will rise if he gets more goals next year. The player has his preferences but the irony is that unless he is cheap Forest are really interested in Maddison instead!



13 Jun 2018 07:55:44
We are trying to assemble a potential premier league bound squad. Why did VIlla Derby and Middlesbrough fail. Was it their managers ( it is looking like two will be gone) or was it a weakness in the players ie VIlla a poor right back, Derby poor forwards etc ) why did Fulham Wolves and Cardiff get promoted? My belief is in each case was the manager so we have to trust AK is the right choice for us, and only promotion will do.

doc m

1.) 13 Jun 2018 08:34:23
Doc m,yes l agree it,s the manager but their are a few obstacles in the way.Like injuries ,suspensions,weather etc.,I know we all want promotion but to even think of it is Taboo,it,s a thing managers want ,yes, but to start thinking of it this early,No! not yet.

2.) 13 Jun 2018 08:46:23
With the huge turnaround in players and the large amount reportedly being spent,failure will not be an option
It will be his team,so no excuses for not being top six.
Problem is we all know it's not that easy

3.) 13 Jun 2018 09:38:14
Am with you '51. Ff Would you consider a top ten finish to be "failure"? I certainly wouldn't!

4.) 13 Jun 2018 10:28:11
Yes top ten would be failure if the reported money we are spending is correct.
You can only lose 39 mill over a three year period,ffp would soon become a problem.
You can't spend large amounts on players just to make the top half as that would mean spending even more ,as obviously the squad wasn't good enough to gain promotion.

5.) 13 Jun 2018 13:24:59
From what I've read the deal is 13 million but the payments will be structured over the duration of the contract so I'm assuming a 5 year contract less than 3 million a year which with a bit of perspective is more than affordable

6.) 13 Jun 2018 14:10:22
It isn’t about position for me. If you spend the sort of money rumoured that we will then in the championship Karanka should have players at his disposal to challenge. If we finish 12th but 4 points off play offs and we’re in promotion race right up until last few games then I would be happy, it would be a big step forward but if we finished 8th but had never been higher than that and never looked like breaking into play off places or promotion race it would be disappointing, personally I won’t think about what my expectations of this team are until the end of the transfer window but I expect us to improve on last season and that is what the manager and owner have said. The more we spend, the higher I (and I expect everyone) will expect us to finish!

7.) 13 Jun 2018 16:42:19
If it's to be true what's being said about 50 million which I doubt it very much but if the owner is investing big money in the team this season as the 15 million for the Portuguese guys plus whoever else I would say anything but play offs would equal a crap season with a lot of clubs not being able to spend this season and we can we after make the most of the advantages and I'm guessing marankis is thinking the same to 6 finish must this season with investment simples.

8.) 13 Jun 2018 20:17:34
Red mash your spot on. 15 million on a 5 year deal would be 3 million per year towards FFP spending.

9.) 14 Jun 2018 09:45:35
Perks players might be paid over five years the transfer fee won't be.
What's this? Rent a player for 3 million a year??
Can't see anyway that's happening,every club would do it as a loophole.

A talented player there is no doubt just needs a good manager to develop such as AK, and a sound investment. If he opted to stay that world say a lot for AK as he hardly played him

Sadly this team flattered to deceive . Jones excuse me a midfielder ? Delph. For me Trippier Maguire Pickford stood out over the weeks plus Stone. Kyle walker in a central defence three was found out against Croatia. He is not a Central defender at Man City. A lost opportunity for a final appearance that will never be as easy again
