read in paper that forest are way out on the fifa fair play rules and could be hit with a 3 window transfer ban so that's january and all next season if its true : (


1.) I believe any Transfer Embargo is until Club has losses of less than £8m, however since this will be changing from Next Season I can't see how they can legally enforce it after the change (plus will then be £13m which I believe we're under). Plus the Embargo is that if we sell a player we can sign one as long as his wages are less than the outgoing player and within the a set limit that will have been imposed.

2.) Dont forget that there is a lot of players out of contract at the end of the season and if an embargo is underway we can replace these providing the new salaries are less. Of course we will be heading for the premiership plus the ground naming deal should be done and fawaz has promised an expanded city ground if we go up. SO its not all doom and gloom, keep the faih and support the boys.

Who's out of contract end of this season.
I expect Halford Collins Harding. Who else?

4.) If we are, so are a lot of other clubs! Fawaz will sort it!

5.) When Barcelona were hit with an embargo, they were given a window to spend as they pleased prior to the embargo taking hold. If we aren't given the same, we should fight it in court. Should buy some time to spend anyway as they couldn't enforce the embargo until the legal challenge has been resolved.

{Ed003's Note - These are not FIFA ffp they are The Championship ffp rules although as you know they have been amended from 2015/16. }

6.) The existing championship FFP framework will remain in place for the rest of this season 2014/15 & next season 2015/16.
At the beginning of the 2016/17 season the financial performance of championship clubs will be closely monitored over a 3 year period.
Within this period clubs will be able to make a loss of 15mill without having to explain how that loss will be funded.
In addition to this clubs will be able to lose more than 15mill but no more than 39mill, but will be subject to additional regulations if they do so.
Such as detailed forecasting on accounts for the 2 seasons ahead.
They are the basics, then it starts to get complicated, like promotion/relegation within that 3yr period.

The current championship FFP are a joke & are completely out of touch with the reality of financial loss clubs incur, not necessarily through spending but because thier income simply doesn't't cover thier losses.
Qpr were facing a £60mill fine last season through blatant flaunting of the FFP, what would of happened if they hadn't been promoted ?
I'm thinking nothing, too many loopholes.
Faulkner said his first job as Forest CEO would be to write the FA for clarification on the fundamentals of FFP in the championship, which in his words were about as clear of mud.

I don't think we have too much to worry about;
the reporter should stick to what he's paid for reporting on the football match, although I think he mentioned we won 2-1 at the end of the article.

7.) Cough cough it's 2016/17 ed.

{Ed003's Note - There is a change from next season(15/16) that allows losses of up to £13m - you really should get something for that cough awful bugs going around at this time of year.}

8.) I stand corrected ed, the increase is during the transitional period.
Although it makes you wonder why the FA don't start the new FFP infrastructure next season.
To say the new FFP will start 2016/17 season,
but then increase it to 13mill from 6mill the srason before is a bit strange.

9.) Under the embargo we can still ad free agents to our squad providing there salary doesn't exceed 10k a week. i think you are allowed a squad of 24 or 25 players over 21 (u21's don't count as there youth and they want more youth coming through) I think we have 22 or 23 over 21's so we can still ad 1 or 2 players providing there's no fee and there wages aren't over 10k per week. that's if I heard right on radio nottingham on sat. we can also sell one and bring one in during the embargoes. we will no more in jan.

10.) Stop buying/loaning overated, overpriced injured/semi fit players that produce very little. by all means pay good money for really up coming talent like we have recently, but for gods sake i wish we would stop having our pants pulled down several times a year with obvious injury prone players. i dread to think how much money is sat in the treatment room. . AGAIN!!

11.) Do we will really need extras in the squad in the next 2 years if we stay in the championship ?
1. We can have a squad of 25 - one leaves then we can get another player but pay him a miserable £10000 a week surely not enough to live on!
2. As I understand it we can bring in players under the age of 21
3. Not sure about loans
4. Simple answer to get into the premier league this season

12.) 73 unbelivable i really did read it in the paper lol

How much say does Spence has if he wants to stay I'm guessing none but hope I'm wrong lol.


1.) 19 Nov 2021 09:24:41
He can stand up and say I want to stay at Forest but at that point I think he'll be reminded that he's a Middlesbrough player and he needs to play for them, just as he has for us.



24 Oct 2021 16:50:28
Forest 3 Fulham 1 imo lol.




16 Sep 2021 21:07:23
I think we should look at Cohen or Reid but not as manager but getting them back at least they cared and would be any worse 🤣.


1.) 16 Sep 2021 21:28:42
forest can't afford to be a training ground for wanta be managers. we need propper motivated personel to take us forward,50 points min is our priority starting at huddersfield, and to be honest i don't care how we get them. ugly football if that what it takes.

2.) 16 Sep 2021 22:06:29
How about Ainsworth at Wycombe?
Done his apprenticeship under probably the tightest budget got Wycombe to the championship and would still be there if the sheep hadn't got away with their points deduction till this year.

3.) 16 Sep 2021 22:56:14
he would do for me, but not sure the head up their asses directors box brigade would put up with his up front direct talk. come to think about it the fans would love him.



01 Sep 2021 08:24:51
So many moans about not signing new strikers when there is nothing wrongnwoth ones we have they just simply have no service due to tactics an isolated lonely figure trying to a back 4 on there own, it doesn't matter who we sign when were playing 6 at the back look at derby game 2nd half with 2 strikers on the pitch very different performance, strikers thrive goals and confidence no service so no goals so no confidence sorry but the buck stops with CH, people moan about him slagging players off saying we need new signings then back up his comments by also wanting new signings, used the right way this squad maybe not be world beaters but certainly challenging for 5th or 6th so I am glad we haven't signed someone on big money who won't be able to perform in a negative setup because it will make no difference till we leave behind a formation of

went to the city ground today with my son and girlfriend as i won the bed chambers man of the month and got to watch the team photo being taking, abdun had is arms round everyone smiling and laughing looks like he is going nowhere soon unfortunately lol


1.) I don't think it's unfortunate at all. When he's playing well he's a brilliant winger and I trust SP will be getting the best out of him in training. He still has a part to play this season.

2.) 18 Sep 2014 20:24:30
Agree with the Abdoun sentiments but I've got a feeling we may actually need him over the course of the season

3.) Hes getting paid for doing nothing, which is why he is laughing. this is the mentality of the man. "brilliant" winger? Do me a favour.

4.) Got to agree with GazzaRed on this one. The bearded magician is class when he feels like it. Just wish he'd sort his head out and be a team player. Signing " the terrible " did him no favours.

5.) 18 Sep 2014 22:28:43
Agree with cjay

6.) Don't agree with oakhamred.

Im sure there is a reason but as fawaz is our shirt sponsor why couldn't he have made the shirt sponsor worth say 50 million and stopped all this as its classed as income seems to simple so i'm sure there must be rule or regulation in place

We have only spent 1.4 mill on players with the sales of others so must more about how the club is being run or something we don't know about, why hasn't abdoun been at least transfer listed, and i know i don't know the ins and outs of the rules but if Fawaz is our sponsor can't he just sponsor forest more money to balance the books :) ?

I think saying the wing backs are fine is a little understated.

Manager wages and related fees aren't included in ffp that's why.

Do you not think it might have something to do with the players believing in the tactics, I remember seeing CH shouting st a defender can't remember who for pushing forward, it's like formula 1 you get the wrong tactics for the race you lose doesn't mean your driver or car is rubbish just the team chose the wrong tyres, or setup ect sorry but you make a plan against the team your playing not 1 formation not what what buck stops with CH for not realising or realising and refusing to change, players look free saturday it looked to me the don't attack to much philosophy that was clearly drummed into them by him had gone.
