Either Grosicki has signed or he hasn't. Surly the club, player and West Brom know. Can't understand the big secret or the usual silence from hierarchy at Forest. Announce he's signed just before kick off and give us all a big boost. 🎈.

Good luck with your new search.
Sometimes its meant to be.
I ended up losing out on two bungalows and missus was upset, but we are both so glad now as we found somewhere that's perfect in the end.
So chin up mate it will all turn out in the end.

I can reveal from an impeccable source that Chris Cohen and Reidy gave McGuane and a couple of other lads as yet unidentified a thorough work out at the Academy yesterday morning. His signing will probably be announced tomorrow. Unless of course it was a fitness test and they failed it!

Carvalho to Trabzonspor is being rumoured.
God yes please. Get as much back as possible and invest for promotion push.
I know this move would Divide opinion but most people seem to be coming on board every week that he just hasn't worked out.

It could well be wtw but it's more than likely he will be gone somewhere come January.

4.) 06 Dec 2019 22:08:14
After the millwall game I'd consider flogging a few more players.

5.) 07 Dec 2019 19:55:22
Why can't everyone just lay off carvalho and get behind him when picked, Silva was appalling against millwall giving the ball away constantly and contributing very little, yet no complaints about him because he only cost 2.5 mill, πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”.

6.) 07 Dec 2019 20:26:12
I can not agree with you on that one 79, Osborn cost us nothing yet inspite him giving 100% every game and in a couple of seasons having the most assists in a Championship season some kept on his case only mentioned his weaknesses. You off course do not agree but for me when a player has cost the club a lot of money by their standards then i'm inclined to expect more from that player.

Carvalho was unlucky to have missed a lot of the pre season because he got clobbered and was out as a result but he should be more consistent by now. I hope he makes the grade it is down to the owners not the fans to make the final decision on his fate.

7.) 07 Dec 2019 20:49:20
So do you think Silva is consistent?
And do you think he'll ever score a goal for us?

8.) 07 Dec 2019 21:03:48
I think Silva has adapted to English football better, and he has not been at the club anywhere near as long as Carvalho, if Sabri plays him with the aim of scoring i think he is capable of doing it. L

9.) 07 Dec 2019 21:20:44
Then you haven't been watching him he takes every free kick that comes to nothing, takes every corner that mostly comes to nothing and the best you can say about his shooting is to tell him not to.
Busy player but gives the ball away far too much.

10.) 07 Dec 2019 21:41:25
That's just me even it up on cavs replacement no goals and very few assists, its all about what cavs cost with you lot.

11.) 07 Dec 2019 22:03:49
He broken up more other teams attacks than Carvalho has assists and goals to his name. Carvalho thinks making a tackle to get the ball back so he can create something for us is beneath him, it is a team sport, gone are days when you can carry a player untill he decides to pick the perfect pass, or show a bit of skill then scores. Like i have said i hope he can make the grade but he needs to do sooner rather than later. I notice you have not mentioned anything about Osborn costing nothing and still getting stick.

12.) 07 Dec 2019 22:33:08
No tens aren't expected to win balks they have to win games with their assists and goals, I saw a striker? last night who couldn't be a striker and cudn't score if hos life depended on it but was marginally better at tackling, buts that's not what they are there for.

Silva won't score a goal all season and won't assist much either.
Like I say if it wasnt for the fact that cavs cost 13 million non of you would be complaining, that's all it's about and all it's ever been about.

Like say also semedo had a stinker and he's valued at 25 mill, ameobi cost nothing had a first half stinker but came good, just stop getting on one players back because he cost 13 million, if you want to call someone then take it out on the owners who are wasting another 100 million on a new stadium trying to please some of you with the crap they give you with players that cost 13 million.
Think about that.

13.) 07 Dec 2019 23:03:02
On another note Osborn struggles to even make the bench at Sheffied.
The boy is just a grafter that can't nail down a position for his career.
One of the best engines I've ever seen and a remarkable injury free career but lacks any killer instinct and doesn't know his true position.

14.) 08 Dec 2019 00:34:40
Like i said about Osborn for about two seasons he had the most assists in the Championship, yet he cost nothing and kep getting stick, as for his true position it is not his fault every manager liked he could cover different positions and therefore played him in them, Not Bad having the Most Assists in the Championship for a player that does not know his best position yet still got slated. Yet you think Carvalho only gets slated because of his value. πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”.

15.) 08 Dec 2019 10:54:27
79, he was the most expensive transfer in the clubs history, ofcourse people are going to expect more of him. I don't see why you feel so personally offended that people want rid of him but the fact is that he hasn't delivered. Silva might not be the best either but in my opinion, and it seems Sabris too, he is better than Carvalho.

16.) 08 Dec 2019 12:19:33
Skegsjay feels Carvalho will be leaving in January, maybe Skegsjay is right. If Carvalho leaves it could mean someone will come in that is better than Silva and Carvalvo while a decent back up to Grabs Two joins the team. The transfer window is going to be interesting to see who,and how many comes in.

17.) 09 Dec 2019 14:04:46
Ben Osborn? Most assists in the Championship? When? lol

2014/ 15: 4 assists.
2015/ 16: 5 assists.
2016/ 17: 7 assists.
2017/ 18: 5 assists.
2018/ 19: 5 assists.

Lolley got 11 assists last season and the assist leaders in this division tend to be around a dozen or more each season. Not 5 or 7.

18.) 10 Dec 2019 22:54:36
Well that was a day wasted of your life sutty most of us have seen enough of him play over the years not to believe wtw.
I'd get some sleep now after doing the homework. lol. πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€.



03 Oct 2019 17:01:50
Just looking at the first team squad on official website. 31 players. Sabri wants a squad of about 23/ 24. Come January try to get rid of pants, muric, milosavic, benalouane, hefele, yacob, Mir, and Clough. Try and offload Carvalho to Olympiacos and that leaves 22. Sign a striker and a good gutsy box to box midfielder and we are sorted for a push to the big time. Forget the top 6 it's all about the top 2 for me.

Red balloons

1.) 03 Oct 2019 18:00:19
A very tenuous friend of a friend (colleagues partners grand daughters grand father) is a Leicester scout and according to my colleague Leicester are looking at Worrall. I’d let him go for about Β£25m.

2.) 04 Oct 2019 07:43:47
If were serious about promotion I wouldn't let him go for any amount, surprised you would let him go.

3.) 04 Oct 2019 11:13:54
Yates is our box-to-box midfielder, don't need any more.

4.) 04 Oct 2019 12:27:40
Yep forgot about him bsered. Spot on mateπŸ‘.

5.) 05 Oct 2019 10:59:00
Semedo is your box to box man πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ.

6.) 05 Oct 2019 12:13:10
Agree with most of the departures but wouldn’t let Carvalho go or Worrall. Probably keep Pants too as back up.

I think the area we need to strengthen is an extra striker. Not much else needed.

7.) 06 Oct 2019 07:11:10
I would let Carvalho go. If our owner could make a bumper deal to Olympiacos happen to raise some funds for a striker I'd be happy. Without a doubt Joao has talent in there somewhere, but for the money we paid for him, I expected him to be tearing up the Championship, but instead he just toddles around the pitch and loses the ball way too much.

8.) 08 Oct 2019 23:44:55
I'm sorry, I must have read that wrongly, suggestions of offloading Carvalho to Greece. What utter tosh! That man is one of the most talented players I've seen pull on the garibaldi in years. In his first full season in English football, he contributed to 12 goals, never mind all the other chances he created, the dribbles, the runs at oppositions defences, the nutmegs, the first time passes, the one-twos, the ability to make play tick and to make play move faster.

His speed of thought is something else, his ability to create and find room is delightful, and personally he's given me more moments of pure pleasure watching Forest than I can remember. He's not perfect, he's young, he will make mistakes and he will give the ball away. BUT, I'd rather he give the ball away 2 out of 5 times, if he's trying a forward pass, or an incisive pass, or something positive the other 3 out of 5 times. He's coming back to fitness this year after a pretty bad injury and has already created opportunities all over the place.

I really don't know what more you want from a 22 year old. He's a player that could be in the Forest team for a long time hopefully. Just ruddy get behind the players we have that are giving 100% every game, because its working at the moment. I don't want 11 Carvalhos, but I also wouldn't want 11 Watsons or Sows.



27 Aug 2019 09:33:45
Interesting to see SL Quoting he had the whole squad of 23 players in London for the week. This is exactly the right thing to do. I said a few week s back he should pick 22/ 23 and disregard the rest.

Apparently the deadwood 12 aren't allowed near the 23. Spot on Sl
It prevents the deadwood causing unrest in the squad and keeps team spirit amongst a tight knit group This guy really knows what he's doing, hope we stick with him and give him the time he deserves.

Red balloons

1.) 27 Aug 2019 11:03:50
I agree RB. Pretty ruthless approach but if you want to create team spirit on and off the pitch, it necessary.

2.) 27 Aug 2019 15:16:12
Who are the deadwood?

3.) 27 Aug 2019 16:25:38
The deadwood 12?

Pantilimon, Smith, Hefele, Ariyibi, Bridcutt, Clough, Cummings, Murphy.

That's eight, with possibly Yacob too? Milosevic? Hope not, the Swede has looked decent. Benalouane? Might be surplus like Milosevic, behind Worrall, Dawson, Figs and Chema.

4.) 27 Aug 2019 22:21:49
Beneloun injured and just been given a contract extension but Milosevic is definitely on his way and darikwa is injured, admire Lamouchi for sorting out his preferred squad so quickly and trusting in worrall and showing he is actually a very good centre back, wait till carvalho is let loose and then we will really be on fire, the kid will love playing alongside sow and semedo.

Each to there own balloons, he did have his faults. But under some decent coaching i think the lad could have been probably one of the best in championship. Confidence didn't exactly grow with them in front of him apart from worrall. Iv'e noticed all keepers come out flapping these days. But will agree with you on staying on his line far too often. Coaching in all areas of the field let us down last season. Just my opinion mate πŸ‘.

Thoughts reds 🎈.

Red balloons

1.) 10 Jul 2021 10:45:55
As I’ve said on here before Red balloons, Philip Zinkernagel is a very good player. He was star man for Bodo Glimt when they shocked Norwegian football by winning the Eliterserien (their equivalent to the premier league) very convincingly, breaking all the goal scoring records on the way. Signed by Watford but played mostly out of position by them last season, he would be a great addition to our team if we are lucky enough to get him. So before you start to ridicule him because of his surname, do your research, they are my thoughts. Hope that hasn’t popped your balloon 🎈 πŸ’­.

2.) 10 Jul 2021 12:36:13
Yeah very good technically, not the quickest but definitely an improvement for Forest.

I have to say I am surprised that nobody knew what CH would bring when he was appointed. All of his teams are defensive, and have the same style of play. It's not pretty, it is boring, but the idea is for one season if it gets us out of the division, surely a small price to pay? If we had a decent squad, I would be backing him to do something this season, but we don't and he is rebuilding again. I completely get the frustration, but I think the expectation is not realistic.
