Think there will be a lot of business involving forest tomorrow, mostly outgoings but think we will still sign 3 more players.


1.) 08 Aug 2019 08:46:51
To be exact 3more midfielders.

2.) 08 Aug 2019 09:33:12
Lol wouldn’t surprise me.



14 Apr 2019 09:36:17
I've just read on Facebook that PSG owners want to buy an English championship team either us, qpr or Villa.


1.) 14 Apr 2019 12:59:32
Our owner will not sell after setting up the improvements to the ground, as the ground does not belong to the club PSG will not be interested.

2.) 14 Apr 2019 13:29:30
I don’t believe it but would be interesting tho

3.) 14 Apr 2019 13:52:00
The stadium belongs to the club but the land it's built upon doesn't, LC.

4.) 14 Apr 2019 14:25:52
76, thank you for that.

5.) 14 Apr 2019 17:34:38
If anyone comes up with the right money, would the council sell? Or is it one of those ancient by-laws that forbids a sale? Genuine interest, although I don't have the funds.😁

6.) 14 Apr 2019 18:13:34
SDR, I doubt the council will sell, just think how much money they could make building and selling waterfront housing.

7.) 15 Apr 2019 14:42:58
The land ownership is irrelevant to the sale of the club as the owner will have renegotiated an extended term to the long ground lease in order to fund the stadium upgrade as the banks will require security and a charge on the building assets.



06 Jan 2019 00:46:07
just watched the highlights of todays game and the 1st thing is was the game really all Chelsea? 6 mins of highlights and we never had the ball once, think the stats say we had 2 shots on target, is that the bbc being biased towards top teams or were we that bad? another thing we only made 1 sub which is strange as even the comms said we looked tired, can't fault losing 2-0 to Chelsea but they didn't look that good and their 2nd you can tell yacob is not a centre back.


1.) 06 Jan 2019 01:18:16
Lets be honest fox is not a centreback either. But he is a trier. We were caught ball watching from what i could see of the highlights.

2.) 06 Jan 2019 05:16:41
Yes we were totally outclassed and saw very little of the ball. My biggest disappointment was we just seemed to go there hoping to keep the score down? No real hope of winning or even attacking. We might as well have given Appiah, Yates etc debuts and let them get some experience. To me it shows the huge gulf which is obviously there. 8 changes for Chelsea vs virtually the team that played against Leeds.

3.) 06 Jan 2019 06:26:17
It was disappointing to me to see us not give them a proper game, it was a free game for us didn’t matter if we lost 5-0 if we don’t play well against reading a karanka turns round an says we look tired I won’t be happy, good chance yesterday to see what Appiah could do an Yates an play the young swedish centre back surely he’s got to of been better in that position than Yacob?

4.) 06 Jan 2019 10:07:56
The highlights were misleading. We did have a few chances and give them a game. The BBC just concentrated on one or two Chelsea players.

But there is a gulf. Their wage bill is at least ten times ours. If there was no gulf it would be ludicrously bad management from Chelsea.

5.) 06 Jan 2019 10:33:41
Agree with Arran and Nick about a missed opportunity to give the young players some game time. Very surprised they didn't even get off the bench. Against Burton Appiah came on and scored!
It's clear Karanka would rather play players out of position than field younger ones. He brought in 24 new faces in 2018! How many of those have been a successs? Surely we should only buy to actually strengthen our squad and always keep the door open to players coming through the ranks.

6.) 06 Jan 2019 12:55:50
Was Chelsea away the right game to give them a debuts, would of been a massive ask it could really effect there confidence if they got a massive loss against top class players like Chelsea shouldn't they be bought in carefully not thrown straight in the lions mouth, cup games against league 1 opponents is more the opportunity surely or the last 20 minutes against lower teams if were 2 or 3 nil up

7.) 06 Jan 2019 13:23:18
i Agree red - a huge defeat could have really knocked confidence and it would have been a gamble,we don’t know the young players personalities so will just have to hope the club made the right choice not to throw them in. It’s a challenge for any club to play youngsters not just us

8.) 06 Jan 2019 14:16:24
Brereton is an example of what can happen regarding too much too soon.

9.) 06 Jan 2019 16:00:06
Why would it of knocked their confidence we didn’t expect to win yesterday surely losing to burton knocked more of the confidence for the players, an yesterday not really giving chelsea a game as that knocked the confidence? The only reason u know these kids are good enough is by playing them, if your good enough age doesn’t matter but clearly our manager doesn’t trust youngsters an would rather have senior players out of position, just like his mentor mourinho.

10.) 06 Jan 2019 17:42:25
Arran-the guys who see them everyday don’t think they are ready yet, it’s as simple as that. And regarding confidence they would be miles better off with 20 minutes against a Low championship club rather than a team like Chelsea who have the potential to make fantastic players look poor let alone our youngsters.

11.) 06 Jan 2019 18:08:15
Take the point that a huge defeat may knock the confidence of young players. Who knows though maybe young legs and youthful energy could have had a positive impact, at least for the last 20 minutes or so?
And does anyone really believe their confidence is helped when they see the door to the first team virtually closed off to them by the recruitment of a crazy number of players, many of whom are of less ability. I know it's all a matter of balance etc. .just saying I personally am not convinced the balance is right.

12.) 08 Jan 2019 00:53:41
yeah with 20 mins to go what they got to lose, Chelsea players wouldn't of been ready for appiah Saturday that's the way we should of looked at it, young players are never ready its like taking your driving test the real test is getting out there on your own, so only 1 way to find out if these lads are ready is to play them, remember jenas making his debut in the cup he wasn't ready for that game but certainly the next few years lol.



08 Dec 2018 02:06:49
should be a good game today, preston like to attack so hopefully will suit us, hopefully we don't miss all the cbs that are out and now wba an villa drew thanks to another handball just like us we can go 4th with a win maybe 3rd if boro drop pts.


1.) 08 Dec 2018 09:50:25
Need to break the Preston hoodo today. I've a fancy for a draw today but hope its 3 points. More confident about winning at Direby!

2.) 08 Dec 2018 10:53:43
Hope I am wrong but have a bad feeling about today. Theory is back on track next week!!!

3.) 08 Dec 2018 11:18:59
I am slightly concerned about the back four but going forward we are really clicking. If Preston score ,we'll score more. Simples!

4.) 08 Dec 2018 12:34:02
Your wrong,we'll win,we're on a roll now😀🍻🍻🍻

5.) 08 Dec 2018 12:51:17
I prefer a oven bottom bap to a roll😊

6.) 08 Dec 2018 12:54:30
Hope we wallop them!!!

7.) 08 Dec 2018 13:07:22
LC. It's called a COB. .Not a bap.

8.) 08 Dec 2018 13:44:14
Gazzibaldi, Although i was born in Nottingham my dad is a northener and that is what he always called them.

9.) 08 Dec 2018 14:26:45
I got a slap asking the lady in the bakers if she could show me her baps? Got another one for correcting myself and asking why she had a cob on? Then asked for a morning roll and her hubby got really angry so bang went my chance of a really good muffin and I had to scuffler out the shop because it was all getting very barmy. Went home without my tea cake shouting oggie oggie, more more more!
The End!😊

10.) 08 Dec 2018 14:53:21
RIE, Good Post 📯

11.) 09 Dec 2018 12:32:08
Rogie it's all blaa,blaa,blaa where Murphy's concerned.



25 Oct 2018 00:06:54
was i the only 1 who didn't see a change in us tonight? the only difference for me was we were playing against an awful team in Bolton, for me we were still shaky in possession at the back, how many times did dawson have to say calm down?

don't think we are clinical enough, we were all over them 1st 20 mins but only scored once, i'm happy that we won as u can only beat who u play but didn't see any change, maybe i'm wrong?


1.) 25 Oct 2018 00:38:13
Arran quite a few positives. Dawson, lolley, grabban, robinson, colback gedy, cash all looked commanding. Pants is a problem end of and dias us simply woeful. Carvallaho buzy but is he the real deal? Bolton were poor but overall we looked a lot sharper with positive intent. A crucial win and performance. Would like janko at rb snd hopefully fox to partner dawson. Cash must start ahead if dias. .

2.) 25 Oct 2018 02:21:14
was better than Saturday but I just feel it was the shocking performance of Bolton that made us look that little bit better, they didn't trouble pants once, think he had to come collect 1 cross all game, yes dawson and especially lolley were good, think the performance against sheff utd will tell us if the players/management are doing better.

3.) 25 Oct 2018 12:42:00
To be honest arran I'm just glad we scored three and conceded none. On to the next one.

Let's see if tomorrow's game goes ahead, I'm pretty sure it will as it's on sky but we've probably had the same amount of rain as we did when the reading game was called off lol.


1.) 08 Nov 2019 21:14:30
It's on arran got nothing to do with sky the reading game was torrential all week and on the day.

2.) 09 Nov 2019 00:06:17
As everything to do with sky the whole of football as to do with sky lol and as it not been torrential here for the past 2 days, definitely been raining past 2 nights none stop where I work an supposed to be -1 Tom morning but agree with u it will be on.

3.) 09 Nov 2019 08:08:30
I know it was annoying to the fans who turned up for it to be cancelled but from a team point of view lots of pluses. Still in the mix. Game in hand. More time for players to recover from the fixture madness and also injured players nearer to recovery. So win win oh and I still had a couple of cheeky ones 👍🍺



26 Oct 2019 12:25:29
Just heard our games been cancelled - waterlogged pitch? What's going off have we really not got a good drainage system?


1.) 26 Oct 2019 12:53:31
Not the best ever communication from the club either surely the game must have been in doubt all morning.

2.) 26 Oct 2019 12:59:22
What makes me laugh is Sheffield as probably had the same if not more rain yet wed v Leeds is on, think sky as a hand in that.

3.) 26 Oct 2019 13:02:07
It's a shame the game has been cancelled. i was hoping we would get back to winning ways today but now the two losses are going to linger in the players minds for longer. on the plus side at least it gives us a chance to get a couple of our injured players back.

4.) 26 Oct 2019 13:11:31
Whilst disappointing because it’s a good day out with the family - it might be a good thing after weds .

5.) 26 Oct 2019 13:18:49
The more cancellations we have the more Time for Dawson, semedo and Sow to get fit👍.

6.) 26 Oct 2019 13:48:11
Can you believe,I,m spending the afternoon ordered to put a blind up.

7.) 26 Oct 2019 14:22:01
Frustrating really whether it's a good thing to get some injured players back the lads need to address the 2 losses with a good performance and win. Making it drag on can affect mentality and with a big shaggers coming up a couple wins before that game and confidence is up up up. Piss poor really from a club crying out about premier league, why oh why is it so frustrating being a reds fan?

8.) 26 Oct 2019 14:26:59
I think that’s why we are addicted to it Clough, this season has been fairly enjoyable for the most part.

Manager got it wrong on Sunday an he's got it wrong again tonight, silva is not a centre mid, Lolley needs dropping, whys Robinson started ahead of Riberio - bubble burst which is so frustrating cus the Wigan an hull ain't great teams.


1.) 23 Oct 2019 20:58:04
Oh well pal bubble well and truly burst looks like we being over run and at home which really hurts.

2.) 23 Oct 2019 20:58:48
Have to agree Arran, strange how all our managers lose their way in selection.

3.) 23 Oct 2019 21:05:07
Don’t know what’s happened it’s like we come back from break a complete different team.



05 Oct 2019 14:22:48
Watching the Fulham v charlton game an 1 of the sets of fans have nicked the city ground song and changed it for them - hahahahaha.


1.) 05 Oct 2019 17:33:38
Charlton Ath. have been singing Mull of Kintyre since the late 70's same as Forest. I work with the son of former Charlton legend, Bob Curtis, and we argue regularly over who sang it first.

2.) 05 Oct 2019 19:40:11
Learn something new everyday lol, never heard them sing it before, even when we played them at the valley.



03 Oct 2019 02:27:00
We all knew this anyway lol but what an absolute disgrace of a club derby are by playing Lawrence an Bennett last night, they both should of been sacked for doing what they did, makes me laugh when football clubs do this as let's be honest if it was players they were trying to get rid of they would be sacked, shouldn't make a difference, remember Chelsea sacking mutu for taking cocaine but had it been drogba he wouldn't of. Before anyone says would I of wanted them sacked if they were forest players the answer is yes yes I would drink driving is a horrible crime that mostly only affects the innocent when collisions happen.


1.) 03 Oct 2019 09:18:03
They’re a disgrace.

2.) 03 Oct 2019 12:08:44
I think sacking them is a bit harsh. They're not the first pro-footballers to get caught and they won't be the last. Not many get the sack for it, but you're right about clubs picking and choosing the punishment based on the quality of player, which doesn't sit right.

Drink driving is an horrific crime that I despise but you have to remember these are young lads, basically kids, with a fortune in their back pocket. They needed guidance and leadership and instead they got that grade-a helmet Richard Keogh looking after them. I think Keogh would deserve the boot before the two young lads. Captain, my ar*e.

3.) 03 Oct 2019 12:21:19
Good post SSWE.

4.) 03 Oct 2019 13:55:48
It’s not going to get better when Shrek joins either.

5.) 03 Oct 2019 15:32:27
Could you imagine them behaving like that in front of the former Man City Captain Vincent Kompany or Stuart Pearce, one look would have said it all.

It's the pictures of one throwing up and filling the urinal and then driving, absolute mental, Keogh should have stopped anyone getting near the driving seat. Ironic that he is the one injured.

Agree with Sgetty, don't think they should be sacked but they should get a lot of community service hours picking litter etc, not like Cantona's let off punishment.

6.) 03 Oct 2019 16:01:44
They are old enough 23 an 25 is not young, certainly should of been dropped into reserves until their criminal case as been done not reward them both with games 2 games after an Lawrence gets a Wales call up - no punishment what so ever - maybe sacking would be harsh but certainly transfer listed, I’m glad it’s derby an not us JOKE OF A CLUB.

7.) 03 Oct 2019 17:03:59
Sswe a kid? Lawrence is 25! Lads risking life and limb in the forces a lot younger than him, he’s a pampered Pratt,

8.) 03 Oct 2019 18:59:35
When Rooney gets there, those kids grannies will be fair game.

9.) 04 Oct 2019 14:15:04
You're still a youngster at 23-25, maybe not in a footballing sense but certainly in the big scheme of things. Forget football, we're talking maturity and life experience. I know what I was like at 25 and even though I thought I was a big boy, I wasn't. I still looked up to leaders, still needed guidance, was still naive and still made silly mistakes.

I didn't feel truly 'manly' until I had kids, bought a house and settled down etc. and faced all my responsibilities, every day! Then you suddenly realise people are looking to you for guidance, advice and leadership. This is were Keogh should be but isn't, and it's where Lawrence and Bennett definitely are not.

10.) 04 Oct 2019 17:50:11
I think at the age of 25 you should know the difference between right and wrong, and the endangerment of peoples lives, you shouldn’t need to Be told by a bloke only a few years older, especially a plank like keogh, seems to be a theme nowadays, , no matter what the crime there’s always someone there to make an excuse for the perpetrator, how about grown men facing up to their responsibilities for a change, and not looking for some pathetic excuse,

Agree with u and we should of had 1 if not 2 handballs an Carvalho reminds me of Ozil we know he’s got talent but it’s his work rate and his stamp on the games that are lacklustre, every time he’s not interested it’s like we playing with 10, think we all want him to succeed as he cost us 13.5m but we will see.
