Don't post much in the closed season, but it doesn't look good for Forest bringing back any of the loan players as yet, still time, but can't see it happening, so my question is, will this situation cause us to loose the fantastic camaraderie and team spirit we could all see last season, could it be detrimental for the team going forward into this season, sometimes togetherness and team spirit are worth more than any 20 million plus players.

Exactly Dreamteam 👍.

God point but a manager lives by his results
Some of it will be down to inflated prices being asked by their clubs now, even though they don't want them?
Spence won't want to play for boro?
Boro didn't rate him very highly a year ago but now want 20 million?
No club will pay that outright.
So be down to boro accepting best deal they can get and the players being satisfied hecwill get to play regularly.
He will be in demand but not as much as boro would wish.
Leave it to the professionals to sort out.

If we'd signed a couple of them think the team spirit and momentum would have continued, but looks like we're signing none of them, but in Cooper we trust.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Jun 2022 06:24:14
Ask yourself this
Is 5 million for Lowe a good deal?
Is 15 million for Davis a good deal? Is their quality worth the price tag I'm not sure it is can we get better quality for those prices? I think we can unfortunately this was always going to be an issue with so many loan players. In hindsight if we had not won promotion hiw many of thise loan players would we have signed . probably none .

In cooper we trust, he did well with what he had and he created the team spirit as there was none when he turned up and I am sure with any of the new players we bring in he will create the same again.

It's not worth paying the prices that the clubs are wanting for the loan players we had they know we are interested and are trying it on Davis is good but not worth 15m and Lowe is not worth 5m not.

Murphy and Co know who they want and we have to trust there judgement just like in January, am sure before pre season starts we will have the players in that cooper wants

Am I the only one that thinks £5m is a decent deal for Lowe? I quite like him. Would still need another LWB to give him competition though. Ideally, Tagliafico may be on the move for around £4m, although he'll probably be off to a Champs League club. Lowe and Tagliafico for under £10m would be spectacularly good imo.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jun 2022 13:08:08
£5M for a crock? If he was fit for 40 games, it's a good deal. But how likely is that?

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jun 2022 13:19:33
Lowe as missed more games than he’s played whilst on loan at forest. Plus even if fit. Is he good enough for prem. maybe for £2m he’d be worth the risk.
Williams can play either side
Still praying spence joins.

23 Jun 2022 15:59:55
Issa Kabore is probably an upgrade on Spence.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Jun 2022 17:10:27
I personally wouldn't worry about the comradery, as I think it is very much Cooper and co who have been responsible for that.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Jun 2022 20:54:24
I'd say 5 million for Lowe is a little steep but I like the way the club won't be held to ransom I'm sure we have a long list of potential targets I'd just like to see them signed sooner rather than later to give them time to gel. I personally think having time to gel plays a big factor in the commeradere aspect.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 Jun 2022 09:23:36
18 months or so ago I said on here that the team we field if we go up to the Prem will be very different to the one we have in the Championship. I still think that is the case.

Agree2 0Disagree

24 Jun 2022 10:59:00
As other people have said, Lowe isn't worth £5 million, Davis isn't worth £15 million and Spence isn't worth £20 million. Those prices are simply extortionate and Forest are correct in not paying them because it would give every other selling club the idea that Forest are willing to pay over the odds and that's not a situation we want. The club is absolutely right in looking elsewhere. It's a shame though as it would be brilliant to get Spence and Davis back.

Zinckernagel is a superb player at Championship level but probably not what we need for the Prem unless as a backup option, but it wouldn't be in his interest to accept that, so it is best for all parties if he goes elsewhere (Olympiacos? ) . I don't think that Lowe is good enough for the Prem either and he gets injured far too often.

I dread to think what price tag United would put on Garner, but it would almost certainly be beyond anything Forest would be willing to pay for a single player, so the only hope there is to get him back on loan. This would suit all parties but nothing much has been said in public about it as far as I'm aware. It would be good for Forest and good for Garner's development as a player, with first team football almost guaranteed. And United would have a better and more experienced player at the end of it. It seems silly to ignore all that and leave him to sit on the bench at Old Trafford.

I am pleased that we are not doing the easy thing and re-signing all of the loanees. If we are to compete in the Premier League then we need to sign PL quality level players. The likes of Davis, Zink, and Garner were loaned to us because they were not ready or good enough for PL. Lowe and Spence were out of favour. Lowe is not PL standard and I would not want to pay over £10m for Spence who is also unproven at PL level or a top tier league in EU.

We have to hunt and sign players for the standard we are now going to have to compete at otherwise we will be straight back down again.

Having spent 23 years out of the PL, I think we are going to go for it by signing only first team ready players that can compete at PL level. Great news but going to be tough and expensive!

Agree2 0Disagree

25 Jun 2022 07:48:46
No room for sentimentality at Prem level. To be successful we need an utterly ruthless approach to improving the team. If Dane and co identify players who would be upgrades then we must not get bleary eyed over replacing them. “But he was a good lad” and “I liked him - he had some good games for us”. Remember Cloughie was the most ruthless manager of his time. He replaced Chris Woods with Shilton without even blinking. Team comes first young man!

Trying to ignore the rumours but it looks increasingly like the Union Berlin lad is coming - not what I had in mind I have to be honest in saying that .

Believable0 0Unbelievable

20 Jun 2022 15:58:09
Think he’s a massive upgrade on Davis so if he can settle which I’m sure he can as he was at Liverpool. Then SC will get the most out of him!

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jun 2022 16:12:11
Very much in the Keinan Davis mould, you'd of been ok with that 2 star, wouldn't you.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jun 2022 16:51:09
I think it would be a quality signing. Not sure if they will sign Davis as well, but could be wrong.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Jun 2022 19:06:50
Apologies all, I’d confused this guy with someone else . I’d be excited by this signing, similar to Davis and I don’t blame the club for resisting teams trying to fleece us for players they’d sell someone else for the fraction of the price .

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jun 2022 21:09:55
Hope we sign Davis aswel. Let Grabbon go he won’t feature much.
Awoniyi Davis surridge
Plus gibbs white who can do a job up there.
Need to buy or replace garner. Ox chamberlain £10m.
Spence Williams as wing backs.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jun 2022 11:31:50
He looks decent and fits our mold, good age. It may mean if we do get him we're in a better position to negotiate for Davis if Copper wants him as well.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Jun 2022 12:34:39
If we sign Neco Williams it will be to play at RWB, we won't get Spence AND Williams.

Ideally we need two LWB and a RWB to compete with Laryea.

RWB: Williams, Laryea
LWB: Lowe, Longelo

I'd be happy with those four. Although seen an ambitious link to Nicolas Tagliafico too.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jun 2022 15:31:47
Lyrea won't feature going on loan🎈.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jun 2022 09:22:52
Yea, strange one that. Thought Laryea would be a decent squad option, covering at RWB and LWB, but wwhat do I know? Cooper obviously has plans.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jun 2022 10:55:42
I really hope that I will be proven wrong and that he justifies the enormous £17 million price that people are talking about. He's still only 24 but I would advise caution about paying that much for him and I can't help but think that better could be obtained for that kind of money.

He started at Liverpool but never played for the first team. He was farmed out on loan to various medium-sized teams on the continent without achieving anything of note. He then moved to FSV Mainz 05 on loan, where he scored 1 goal in 12 appearances and then on loan to Union Berlin in the season before last, where he scored 5 in 21 appearances. He's had 4 caps for Nigeria.

However he was signed permanently by Union Berlin and in this season that has just finished, he scored 15 out of 31 appearances in the Bundesliga, which is excellent. But the enormous price tag seems to be based solely on this season alone. Lots of players have one good season.

I really genuinely hope that I'm proven wrong but I can't say that I'm overly optimistic about that.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jun 2022 13:09:44
People like you were pissed off when we signed Davis due to his poor goals to games ratio.

Wrote off Colback and Yates as not being championship level and subsequently destroyed Prem Leicester, Arsenal and then came close to knocking out Liverpool.

Simon34 or Cooper and Klopp? Who is likely to know a good player when they see one?

Agree2 0Disagree

22 Jun 2022 19:55:44
@RedCyclist

Apparently I need to point out to you the very obvious fallacy of yours that no one can have a valid opinion on a player unless he is Cooper or Klopp.

Of course Klopp really liked the guy. That's why he didn't pick him for the first team, not even once and not even when work permit issues were settled.

And no I wasn't pissed off about any of those other players because none of them cost £17 million.

The statistics on Awoniyi that I posted can easily be verified by a Google search. I really hope I'm proving wrong but the statistics are there for all to see.

Agree3 0Disagree

23 Jun 2022 21:24:52
I didn't say your opinion isn't valid, nobody knows how a signing will pan out. What I said (thought it was clear) was I think Cooper and Klopp are probably more likely to be able to spot a good player than you.

And no, those players didn't cost £17M, and that is likely because - in the opinion of our recruitment team - the new guy is better value than Davis.

Finally, nobody really knows whether it's costing us £17.5M. That is the release clause value, and the papers are assuming we have paid that.

Rumour: Striker incoming.

Taiwo Awoniyi. 20 goals last season in Bundesliga, physical, clinical striker who can do the Davis role.

Apparently has been in Athens with his agent to discuss terms.

Does this mean Villa are taking the p1ss with the asking price for Davis? Similar player.

I'm hoping we sign both ibthinkbwe would need 4 decent strikers in the prem.

20 Jun 2022 08:51:38
Ibthinkbwe sounds good.

Is he a Nigerian international too?

Agree3 0Disagree

20 Jun 2022 09:31:51
Redmash/ Wonky. was thinking the same about ibthinkbwe. thought he was another from the middle east for a moment! Lol 😂.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jun 2022 11:08:30
We will sign two strikers. My guess is that one of them will be able to also play on the wing (s) and/ or as the creative midfielder.

Signing versatile players will make a huge difference.

1. GK? Even if we keep Samba, I think Horvath wants to start games to get in the USA World Cup squad.

2. CB. (probably need 2 if Cooper doesn't trust Panzo/ Soh)

3. RWB (Laryea as cover)

4. LWB (Colback as cover)

5. Midfielder

6. Winger/ AM/ Backup-Striker

7. Centre Forward (Davis/ Awoniyi/ similar - ideally both)

Above is minimum. Some players need to be able to cover other positions, or we will still struggle for cover. Ideally, we will sign AT LEAST 9 players.

Forest need to spend really well and spend a lot of money. If not, the boss must have had a change of heart on players like Drager, Silva etc. If we can't get who we want then the likes of Lolley and Grabban need to stay fit and surprise a few people.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jun 2022 15:24:37
Is this awoniyi been playing in German prem league. Watched him on you tube. And some of the defending is poor. Takes his goals well. But is he prem standard.
Still hope we go for Davis as well.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jun 2022 15:49:33
Henderson - GK
Neco Williams - RWB
Niakhate - CB
Toffollo? - LWB
Garner and Maitland Niles - CM
Gibbs-White + 1 more - CAM
Awoniyi + 1 more - ST

That’d be what I’d do. Zinck maybe as a back up option to MGW then another good solid forward. Don’t think we need Awoniyi and Davis, would prefer we got a player that’s got a bit of pace and trickery about them but different to what we already have.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jun 2022 16:49:34
We don't have anyone like Davis or Awoniyi, so we do need a player like that. We were practically unbeatable playing with Davis.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jun 2022 16:57:07
Yes but we don’t need both. One is enough, then surridge adds something different with his movement. If we had surridge, davis, Awoniyi and Grabban we have 4 out and out strikers + Brennan. We’d be better off with Davis being someone completely different to the others.

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Jun 2022 17:53:27
I think the owner's son is being groomed to take over from Dane Murphy. Apparently he is dealing with the transfer of Henderson.

Believable2 0Unbelievable

16 Jun 2022 21:43:39
He's not being groomed for that he will be our new owner so he's going to want to get involved if it helps a deal, at the end of the day I would imagine Murphy only has a set amount he can negotiate and with him there he can approve extra funds or the contract

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Jun 2022 01:16:50
From what's been said he's become quite the forest fan, been at most of our home games and obviously trying to do best for our great club. Murphy n Cooper going nowhere.

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Jun 2022 18:47:25
Looks like Henderson is on his way to Forest. Goodbye Samba. Not a premier league goalkeeper.

Believable3 0Unbelievable

15 Jun 2022 21:43:43
Excellent goalkeeper, premier quality and with an optional to buy 👌.

Agree2 0Disagree

16 Jun 2022 13:27:44
Why is it just because samba is leaving you now say he's not premier league quality? He would of done a job in the league for us and why is it just because he's leaving you are now turning on him.


However Dean is far better quality keeper in that I agree and its a very good signing

Agree4 0Disagree

16 Jun 2022 15:41:58
I think samba is a better all round keeper than Henderson will ever be.

Agree6 0Disagree

16 Jun 2022 23:44:44
You caught anything yet? 😁🎣🎣.

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Jun 2022 17:21:12
I’m pretty shocked samba wants to leave. He’s good enough for prem. not seen any keeper better with the ball played back to him. Was hoping he just wanted a better contract but seems not.
If he goes good luck to him.
Henderson ideal replacement.
Expect horvath to go aswel. Wants to be playing because World Cup. Maybe loan him out to championship side.
With emergency call back if henderson gets injured.

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Jun 2022 17:29:00
Rumours saying just a loan with no option to buy. just keep samba.

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Jun 2022 22:34:39
Never try and keep a player that wants a move.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jun 2022 16:19:07
Looks like we have agreed terms with Dean Henderson on load with a view to buy.
Sounds good to me.

15 Jun 2022 16:23:41
This would mean no Jimmy G!

15 Jun 2022 19:01:06
Just buy garner. £10m plus add ons be fare.

Agree3 0Disagree

15 Jun 2022 19:14:11
It would as there's a loophole. Because we have the option to buy him we can then load garner.

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Jun 2022 19:24:54
Yeah we would have to buy garner, 20 million been banded about.

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Jun 2022 21:31:21
No we wouldn't. Because there's a option to buy Henderson after the loan. Means we can still get loan garner on loan. Its a loop hole. Look it up.

Agree2 0Disagree

16 Jun 2022 08:51:18
It's a potential loophole that Forest are looking into, nothing certain yet. It would need PL approval.

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Jun 2022 14:53:44
From what I have read we would not be able to loan him if we have Henderson on loan with an option to buy.
We would have to have a loan deal for Henderson where we have to buy him at the end, not an option of.

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Jun 2022 23:45:48
Spot on reddog.

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Jun 2022 02:39:55
So if we get the 2 potential man utd players on some sort of loan deal, does that mean we can't loan anyone else. I've also heard that forest want the deal to loan and buy Henderson at the end of season but united want a straight loan wich means no Garner?

14 Jun 2022 06:50:04
If that’s the case then that’s a reasonable first game to start us off. I’d hate for us to play 3/ 4 of the top teams in our first 5/ 6 matches because the likelihood is we will get a beating and that would massively knock confidence and could result in a very poor season.

Of course with Stevie cooper he can pull off the odd giant killing as we saw against Leicester and Arsenal!

Whatever happens next season we need to enjoy the ride do our best to stay up and go from there.
