Cannot confirm yet but hearing reports that Moreno has rejected a move and wants to stay at Real Betis.
Oh well, that's another £9m we can offer for Gibbs-White ?.

Red Fred

1.) 08 Aug 2022 14:19:21
Just heard the same Red Fred. Though that price tag on Gibbs White seems way over the top to me.

Is Cafu?
a: an attacking midfielder.
b: a defensive midfielder.
c: a box to box midfielder.
d: none of the above.
Who on the Forest bench is constantly shouting his name throughout every game he plays?
I never hear any instructions shouted out to any of the players, even Cafu.
All I can hear all game is "Cafu, Cafu, Cafu".
Very strange.

Red Fred

Sub goalie. 😀😀.

2.) 27 Dec 2020 14:41:57
Cafu could be good but we will never know with both Yates and Sow never feeding him the ball.

3.) 28 Dec 2020 11:40:13
Cafu might be good at somthing but definitely not football, maybe he'd be good at running a cafu.

4.) 28 Dec 2020 17:09:50
Yes a very loud Cafoooooo Cafoooo! Sounds like Hughton to me. Seems like a willing player but not pulled up many trees yet.



04 Nov 2020 22:13:22
A wins a win but I seriously believe we're relegation fodder after that performance.
First half was an improvement but some of the passing was still awful.
Players can't even choose the right studs. Maybe don't water the pitch as much before kick off?
We can't keep the ball for sustained periods, can't make simple passes, don't look fit compared to the opposition and don't get anywhere near enough players in the opposition box when attacking.

Fred i see your point. I only saw 2 min highlights and defensively it was a horror show. The awful thing i noticed was crosses from deep wide positions which should be easy to defend were not. The header from ohare, his run was unchallenged. I think overall its obvious the majority of the players are simply not up to it. Christie is a liability, still don't rAte the keeper, though he does make crucial saves with his feet. I think mckenna is sound taylor has something but needs support. Maybe as i now cannot see the whole games its unfair to make judgements but i do think unless Chris gets to keep his job or indeed wants it up to Jan window we are going to struggle. How precious those 3 lucky points were lastnight is anybodies guess.

2.) 05 Nov 2020 19:23:38
To be fair fred your post is just full of truths as to how we are playing.

3.) 08 Nov 2020 04:00:38
Since CH took over he has averaged 1.7 points per game so its not as bad as everyone thinks. And the team will only improve over time 👍.

4.) 08 Nov 2020 16:00:15
The biggest problem we have is our support, the negativity and misery it spreads is alarming. We lose they go into complete meltdown, we draw and supporters look at every mis timed pass, every slice, slip and miss. If we win, the opposition is criticised or comments are made that we are not good enough, or players are singled out. It’s driving me mad. I can handle us not playing well or even losing but it’s the morons on social media that frustrate me. Thank god Facebook, Twitter and all these other groups didn’t exist when Cloughie was at the helm.

5.) 08 Nov 2020 18:08:19
Thats the modern world we live in my freind.
Press have always been there to scrutinise, tv plays replay after replay to show how badley a team was done by in slow motion.
Football is a passionate game, if you would lije everyone just to say well done every week, even in defeat or when playing badly, then football is the wrong sport.
Like most you can't see its an opinion in how an individual sees things.
This site would not exist without differing opinions and sir brian didn't have to put up with, nor would have to have had to put up with it because he was a great manager.
When your a small club like us you had to enjoy every minute of it and i certainly did.

6.) 09 Nov 2020 11:25:20
Why single players out? At the moment Yates is public enemy number 1, before him Watson until he put in a great season, before him was osbourne, the list goes on! If they wear our shirt we should support them, the manager picks the team!

7.) 09 Nov 2020 12:30:51
Its the same at every football club.
Our fans aren't unique.
If you live amongst derby fans they are just the same.

8.) 09 Nov 2020 13:18:49
If you think the biggest problem we have is our support after the way Forest has been run for almost the past decade and the total capitulation last season then good luck to you Pascal.
Do you not think any of that alone is deserving of any criticism?
Like Ff says, it's the same at any club and is not just restricted to Forest.
If you don't like what you read on social media then stay away from it, simples.

9.) 10 Nov 2020 08:40:21
Pascal, I agree, I genuinely feel some people are just miserable and come on here to vent, tough times right now.

10.) 10 Nov 2020 13:25:03
Yes perhaps I should stay away from it, I am thankful that non of these negative people are my friends. I enjoy going to watch NFFC home and away and love the club. I am disappointed when we lose or draw when we maybe should have won. I’m not in a position to criticise any of the players as I am not a pro footballer or manager and could do any better. I’ll carry on supporting the club although I have left all the Facebook and Twitter groups as reading all the bile left me feeling down. People are entitled to their opinion but negativity is like a disease.

11.) 10 Nov 2020 18:02:11
So when you go to a game what do you talk about with your mates after the match.

12.) 10 Nov 2020 23:38:12
for the last few seasons they've dominated matches and conceded late equalisers loads of times. now they win playing while playing rubbish and they're relegation fodder?
it's a new manager and a load of new players and they're grinding out some results. i think we should all chill.

13.) 11 Nov 2020 20:37:25
I just don't see the point in going to a football match and having no opinion because you don't feel qualified as your not a manager?



01 Oct 2019 21:50:47
Good point at a ground that is usually a graveyard for us.
Game was there for the taking though against a bang average Blackburn side.
Hard to know what our style of play is after that display. If it's counter attack then the touch and passing simply isn't good enough.
Maybe try passing the ball to each other to see a game out rather than just hoofing it and soaking up pressure. We're getting away with it at the moment but won't keep doing Plus my finger nails won't last for much longer unless we can see games out with a bit more comfort.

Red Fred

1.) 01 Oct 2019 22:19:54
Sorry fred totally disagree nine games without defeat and your saying its because "were getting away with it? "
Poppy cock we are a hard working team that never knows when to stop running.
Not sure what you want from them? 🤔.

2.) 01 Oct 2019 22:39:26
I don't think Fred is diaputing the effort or work rate, that's there for all to see. I think we just need to show a bit more composure when we win the ball back. That way you make the opposition chase the ball and give the defence a breather. Having said that we have to be happy with another point on the road and if we follow that up with a win in the next home game it's been another good week for the Reds.

3.) 01 Oct 2019 23:11:11
Your living in dreamland saying we'll be in the top 2 by the end of October and 15 points from next 3 games, well that ones already let you down.
Listen I'm overjoyed where we are in the league and the fact we ain't a soft touch anymore. But if you think we're playing well in games then you need to go to Specsavers.
The championship this season looks like it won't be dominated by one or two teams and we stand a decent chance of a top six finish but we can't keep hanging on for dear life at the end of games because it will eventually go wrong and we'll concede late on and some of the confidence will go.
I'm sure Its not Lamouchi's remit to see games out like we are doing and he's working on our ball retention to ease the late pressure but after some of the passing tonight he's got his work cut out.

4.) 02 Oct 2019 07:51:23
Lamouchi will realise he made a mistake in bring on Silva as that invited Blackburn to come at us with sow on we looked far more composed.
Ok we won't get the fifteen points but we will still be top two by end of October not seen anything yet that is better and stronger than us.
Been saying from the second game we are not going to control games we are a counter attacking side built on a good solid defence.
Wont be pretty at times but its effective.

5.) 02 Oct 2019 12:25:41
Just to point out that the bench were going crackers at the back four for dropping off after the substitutions so Joe needs to learn from this and take control rather than criticise the substitutions?



29 Dec 2018 19:12:23
All the early season optimism has evaporated in the space of 7 games.
Can't come back from a one goal deficit to even salvage a point in 3 of those games.
Cannot defend a lead, two nil up at Villa and three nil up at Norwich in two of those games.
If you can't fight back in a game or hold on to a lead then your really shafted!

Red Fred

1.) 29 Dec 2018 19:22:55
Can't put it better than that Fred,but some still think we are making progress 🤔🤔

2.) 29 Dec 2018 20:20:53
Some Delusional individuals FF?

3.) 31 Dec 2018 14:11:42
30% win rate 🤔

Looking like Alex Moreno deal almost done.
Can play left back or left wing.

Red Fred

1.) 07 Aug 2022 21:38:36
Left wing makes it a good partnership with toffolo or Richards wolves and villa need to take a reality check on their valuation of gibbs white and Davis or they will still be there but unwanted
I know we all want another striker and attacking midfielder but not at these crazy prices.



21 Jul 2022 21:09:02
Anyone else seen the 3rd kit?
It's another love it or hate it.
Looks like a bus seat ?.

Red Fred



18 May 2022 10:21:45
Hope Yates didn't do further damage to his shoulder during the pile on at the end.
He completely missed it, went straight over the top and landed flat on the floor 😂.

Red Fred

1.) 18 May 2022 12:24:58
Said he will be fine in his interview 😂.



07 May 2022 14:33:12
Slack doesn't even come close to describing that.
Put everything into the last 15 mins to try and get Luton and then throw it away with the last kick of the game.
Coyle completely unmarked down the right from the re-start.

Red Fred

1.) 07 May 2022 14:40:21
Not a good match at all . Honestly they did not deserve a win. Cooper needs to really prove his worth but I am not hopeful.

2.) 07 May 2022 15:35:10
Wtf cooper needs to prove his worth doc 🤣🤣🤣 fred he's resting players. Doesn't matter who we play next Doesn't the championship remind us of that. you lot. can't believe it.

3.) 07 May 2022 16:08:29
Cooper wanted Luton Bowie.
Hence the late substitutes.

4.) 07 May 2022 16:41:15
Fred and great to see your posts my friend. Cooper wanted luton playing a minimal 1st team . You were never going to see true forest tactics against hull. Simple as. We all seen the game against Bournemouth and most looked fkd . actually i was really surprised to see him playing worral. Keep the faith with the cooper/ murphy the owner. Backroom staff.



18 Apr 2022 22:15:11
Zinkerknackers my man of the match tonight.
Shame he didn't start against Luton.
Surridge best finisher we've had since Earny.

Red Fred

1.) 18 Apr 2022 22:38:33
I'd agree with that fred.

2.) 18 Apr 2022 22:38:46
Zink seemed to be involved in everything good at the start of the game.

3.) 18 Apr 2022 23:01:10
Sorry moulder mate 😞 .

4.) 19 Apr 2022 05:13:59
Don’t apologise Bowie. Shows signs of weakness.

Alls good.

Lazy journalism. Just like the Lascelles link.
Will probably be Bamford and Antonio next.

Swansea were hard to score against because they had good defenders.
Ours are all crap.

Is that likely? Fulham only just signed him permanently for £15m.

Agree on Mangala and O'brien.
Cooper will have a real headache when Yates is fit with Freuler and Kouyate coming in as well.

Gibbs-White has been Coopers number 1 target all Summer and he wanted to build the team around him.
If he comes he'll improve us without question.
If he helps keep us up then fee is irrelevant. If he doesn't then we'll likely get a large chunk of it back by selling him on.
He'll be an England regular soon because he's that good.
I keep hearing he's not proven in the EPL but try and catch extended highlights from yesterday at Elland Road and get a glimpse of what he can do.
He also takes an excellent corner.
£40m is a lot but we'll probably be close to spending £200m by the time the window closes.
I'd be surprised if Wolves accept £40m after his performance yesterday.

He's a quality player and a game changerso wouldn't be a waste of money.
By far the best player to face up against in the championship last season.
I'd love to see him at Forest but agree there has to be a limit on what we pay.

We look far more assured with Cook in the back line 2star. He may not have the legs for the EPL but he reads the game so well.
Mbe Soh looked good when he came on as well.

He scored 2 tonight.
Awoniyi came close but yet to get off the mark.
