Wallace looks a done deal at approx £2m. Due for a medical but might be delayed due to a quad injury.


1.) 16 Jan 2022 14:08:28
That's what I was told last week sutty, I was told it was a done deal.
Maybe they didn't want the transfer to go through till after the game yesterday?

Looks like Forest are signing Keinan Davis on loan for the remainder of the season. Lots of reports on social media.


1.) 30 Dec 2021 21:44:20
Can’t be any worse than Lyle Taylor.
In fairness from the very little I’ve seen of him. He could be a good option from the bench at to start a game here and there. Hopefully SC can get a tune out of him, if he can he’ll be a real handful.

2.) 30 Dec 2021 23:44:39
Stats look promising 🤦🏻‍♂️.



23 Jul 2021 11:36:21
Lee Buchanan from Derby, England u21 left-back. Alan Nixon says Forest are after him.


1.) 23 Jul 2021 19:28:26
Will they want him joining us, or even another Championship club?

2.) 24 Jul 2021 11:07:55
Pretty sure Forest cant afford him, I imagine it'll be £5m+ at least. Derby have already rejected a first low-ball offer.



09 Jul 2021 21:20:19
Lots of rumours flying around today, chaps.

-Centre-forward Jordan Hugill linked from Norwich.
-Second bid made for Zian Flemming of Fortuna Sittard.
-Interest in a loan move for Spurs winger Jack Clake.
-Linked with Gent left-back Milad Mohammadi

And in the most amusing news of the day, Barnsley hope to snatch Brennan Johnson away for £2m. Ha. Good luck with that.


1.) 12 Jul 2021 18:40:39
if c h is looking at these players he has two wonky eyes.

2.) 16 Jul 2021 18:09:58
Nothing more come to light about any of them. Time to settle in get fit and play pre season games getting tight.



17 Feb 2020 12:23:52
Forest linked with Crewe right-back Perry Ng. Five assists this season in League Two.

Would be amusing to see NG 2 on the back of his shirt, whilst playing in West Bridgford.


1.) 19 Feb 2020 13:19:48
At least he'll feel at home. 👍.

Imagine marching round Derby for 2hrs, filling your ground for the first time this season, then a Forest loanee ruins your big day out after 6mins 🤣🤣🤣

0-2, on ye big day out 🎵.


1.) 30 Jan 2022 15:29:55
2-2 Fair play

Dont mind giving them a bit more hope. It's the hope that kills you 🙃.



02 Mar 2021 18:55:56
So Lolley in for Freeman and Mighten back on the bench.


1.) 02 Mar 2021 19:07:30
Good that's a bit more adventurous.
Yeats must have a knock.



25 Sep 2019 11:54:48
Defended well for 60-70 minutes against a good side, away from home.

Once the 2nd and 3rd went in Sabri brought on some kids for the experience and the side fell apart.

Nothing to be ashamed of. Most of the Forest side were 2nd string or kids, playing against some of the best young players in the country, plus Ozil, Tierney, Bellerin etc.

Bigger fish to fry on Friday.


1.) 25 Sep 2019 12:32:08
The biggest disappointment for me was we weren't set up to even try and get a result, no striker and no strength in midfield.
Would have thought it better to play as we do normally and changing personell to suit.
We looked a mess all over the park and the goalkeeper has to be sent back.
We couldn't win or keep the ball and when you do that you get a thrashing which is what we got and what we deserved from the way the team was set up.
We will see a different side and formation on Friday and I'm confident of a win and promotion this season so long as a lesson was learnt last night that we can't revert to lightweight midfielders and Silva and carvalho can't and mustn't play together.

2.) 25 Sep 2019 15:17:12
I don't think Lamouchi set the team up to be that dreadful, F79. I'm sure he thought he had a plan and it just didn't work out. He'll probably be the first to say he got it wrong.

He's a brave Manager that's not afraid to make a change here or there, either as a strategy against a certain opponent or even in the middle of a game. He won't always get it right but so far he's getting more right than wrong. I'd rather have this brave, flexible approach than the one-dimensional 'Plan-A Only' approach we've seen from previous coaches, like Warburton and Karanka.

Not arguing or disagreeing with what you've said, mate, just trying to offer some positive spin! Let's hope he get's it right on Friday.

3.) 25 Sep 2019 21:18:18
He'll get it right Friday without a doubt but like I said that side couldn't score and was too lightweight and had no leader or captain material on the pitch.
I'm very confident we will get promoted this season provided we keep grabs fit till Jan and sign a good back up striker or two.
Also important to keep dawson fit as he's the leader we must have on the pitch.

People moaning about rotation is doing my nut in.

PM is doing a great job so far, we've recruited well and we're playing an entertaining brand of football. Rotation is one of his policies and let's not forget we're in a period of playing 8 games in little over a month (Sept 11 - Oct 14) , so rotation is probably a shrewd move at the moment.

We've not even made it to Christmas and a lot of fans are moaning and criticising, which to me is ludicrous. Let PM get on with it and enjoy the entertainment for once.


1.) 19 Sep 2016 15:33:47
Rotation is fine if you've got a real need but at the moment PM needs to establish his 1st choice 11. He, like any good manager should always pick his best team and if that's not possible make the odd change. 5/ 6 changes every game is not going to work. Players that play together build understanding and work as a team. At this moment in time that isn't happening. I'll just mention 2 teams, Barnsley/ Huddersfield. Same team the majority of the time. Tell me we are not as capable as those 2?

2.) 19 Sep 2016 15:36:03
Most of the so called rotation is due to injuries.

3.) 19 Sep 2016 15:37:22
I meant to add also, Ranieri at Chelsea was constantly tinkering. Ranieri at Leicester wasn't. The difference = Champions but more importantly a team. It's quite simple really.

4.) 19 Sep 2016 17:08:17
I reckon the rotation policy will settle down a bit more when a) we have fewer injuries and b) we emerge from the frantic first few months of the season.

Most months of the season only contain 4-5 games but with the League Cup and international windows the opening few months are always hectic - Seven games in August and six games in September is quite hard going. 14 games in 57 days is a game every 4 days!

5.) 19 Sep 2016 18:20:43
It's doing my nut in because most of the rotation has been down to injuries/ suspensions. Also with all the new players that have come in towards the end of the transfer window, how on earth is he suppose to know so soon who his best 11 are. Hats off to PM, doing a great job!



01 Jul 2016 17:18:52
Floyd Ayite has signed for Fulham so that one is out of the picture. Shame, looked a promising link.

Spence - Slight chance if we go up. No chance if we dont.
Lowe - Good chance if we go up. Little chance if we dont.
Garner - Might get another seasons loan if we go up. no chance if not.
Zinc - Might well be playing Championship football at Watford next season. Unlikely to be at Forest unless they try to make it permanent.
Davis - Good chance if we can agree a perm deal with Villa in the Summer.

Likely to lose 3-4 of them if we don't go up, plus Johnson/ Worrall etc will attract more interest. Without promotion this season, Murphy's going to have his work cut out again to bring in the required quality.

Richardson should certainly be playing at a higher level than the National League - He looked decent in League Two last season, should really be having a go in League One, like Fornah.

I do get what you're saying, although some do develop late. Grabban, for example, was 23/ 24 before he started scoring regularly in League Two and was 25/ 26 before he had his first decent season in the Championship.

All good points, mate. I've not given up on Fornah and Richardson though, they look decent. I'm probably not as ruthless as you :)

You may be right Fff79, but I do trust Forest to make the right call.

And tbh, didn't realise Harbottle was 21, thought he was still in his teens.

Both RH and BF are still young lads, hopefully they'll sign a new deal because they've looked decent in the U23s and when given a first team opportunity. Pretty sure if they're good enough Cooper and Brazil et al will want to keep them on.

I trust the club to make good decisions with youngsters, they usually do. Even pre-Murphy.

Fair enough, guys. Although, are you sure you're not just echoing opinions voiced in the mainstream media? 😋.

It's a really tough call and even tougher on Surridge because he's been excellent but Cooper needs to be ruthless and field his best XI.

Davis has to start if fit, he can be unplayable and offers us so much going forward, holding the ball up and bringing others into play. Bring Surridge on later when legs are tired and if we're chasing the game we could even bring him on to partner Davis.

Pretty sure they'll both get some minutes whatever Cooper chooses to do.

The only honest or semi-decent and prominent politician around is/ was Jeremy Corbyn (love him or hate him) but the establishment knows he's honest and decent and therefore cannot be bought or owned by the a-holes that have their claws in this country. That's why the national press (Murdoch et al) have spent the last decade ridiculing and discrediting him. They couldn't possibly have an honest man running things and ruining their gravy train.

Southgate is easily the best England Manager we've had in my living memory (although El Tel was good) .

I've never seen an England Manager speak so much sense and make logical and fair decisions with players and squad selections. He's been an absolute breath of fresh air.

And he is 100% correct about the state of this country. Many people are desperate, unhappy and struggling to survive. I can completely believe this is why we are having so many societal problems, including football crowds. This country is a sham and ran by crooks, the populus are generally not happy but are not intelligent enough to channel that emotion in an appropriate way. We should be fighting against a murderous and corrupt Tory regime but instead we're running onto a football pitch and punching professional players, that, or calling people horrendous and bigoted names over social media - This country is lost at the moment.

I don't think Cooper thinks we've moved on from the past, I think he fully embraces our history and isn't afraid of it. In fact, I know that's the case.

Pearce is still a brilliant footballing man. A Manager, no, but he knows the game inside out and I'm pretty sure he'd be of benefit to most football clubs in the country in some form or another. Good luck to him, I'm sure he'll find another position.
