Press conference called at the city ground for 10.30 tonight, no subject matter is given.


1.) 17 Jan 2019 21:15:21
Yep chugsey lots to come apparently but all embargoed to the press till then.

2.) 17 Jan 2019 21:41:17
I'm normally in bed at eight!

3.) 18 Jan 2019 12:07:58
Not happy chugsy! I had to stay up late pal! I daren't even have a power nap in case I miss something.



23 Sep 2018 22:48:06
I think Carvalio is making some great diagonal runs in behind opponents fullbacks that our midfield still isn't picking up.
Can someone tell them.


1.) 24 Sep 2018 08:02:27
I’m sure those diagnal runs will be discussed, probably in quite stern terms. There was a bit of talking about it Saturday actually.

2.) 24 Sep 2018 12:16:04
Exactly the point I was trying to make a couple of weeks ago I don’t think that the midfield as it stands today are good enough to bring the best out of the players we have
Still think there’s some more work to be done in the midfield

3.) 24 Sep 2018 14:52:40
We certainly are not lacking midfield options.It's just a case of striking the right balance. I think that we are quite close to achieving that.

4.) 25 Sep 2018 01:40:59
hes supposed to be a 13m creative midfielder himself, so if players don't spot his diagonal runs surely he should get on the ball and make things happen, that's what playmakers do, let grabban make the runs?

5.) 25 Sep 2018 05:34:26
Carvalho’s movement is absolutely brilliant, he’s always looking for gaps and space. Doing this pushes teams back and keeps their defenders constantly on their toes which leads to more time and space for the midfield. Creativity isn’t just what you can do with the ball, it’s also what you can do without it.

6.) 25 Sep 2018 13:03:59
Yep think some are missing the point of a playmaker he’s supposed to be picking out the runs not making them ,

7.) 25 Sep 2018 16:36:25
Is it etched in stone what he should or should not be doing? I think not! Communication is the key. That,I think,will improve.

8.) 25 Sep 2018 17:04:36
Hi has anyone heard if that Iranian strikers paperwork as come through yet

9.) 25 Sep 2018 17:54:42
Think people are clutching at straws if all we can praise a 13mill championship player for is the odd good run he makes OFF the ball

10.) 26 Sep 2018 01:59:40
if carvalhos runs have been so good why have other players not found him or tried too? and if the other midfielders don't see them surely he needs to tell them? iv seen him once live so far against sheff wed and I thought he was awful in the 1st half just jogging around an seemed disinterested an when someone did pick him out he blazed over from 10 yards out, but in the 2nd half he was much better cus he started looking and asking for the ball so for me its down to him if he wants to play like the 2nd half of sheff wed or not like the 1st?

11.) 26 Sep 2018 08:41:31
Carvalhos shown enough to suggest he'll be a top player when the team becomes more familiar with each other.

When the players around him can anticipate those clever runs into pockets of space & find him consistently, he'll have a bigger influence offensively.

He wants to play one touch football, that will only come good when it becomes second nature to those around him.

12.) 26 Sep 2018 12:43:17
Cjay been to almost all the games and you were obviously watching something different to me

13.) 26 Sep 2018 15:00:15
Folk tend to see what they want to see.

14.) 26 Sep 2018 18:39:12
Rose tinted glasses anyone?

15.) 27 Sep 2018 00:09:57
Cjay i’ m a forest fan and want to see him do well what’s your excuse lol



03 Jul 2018 11:46:31
The more I look at the squad set up, and the info that we are aiming for 6 centre backs including the new guy from QPR then I have to conclude we will be playing 3 at the back with wing backs next season. Just need one more on the left to aid Osbourne and Darikwa and Cash wing backs on the right.


1.) 03 Jul 2018 13:00:15
I think it is likely and Robinson can play Left Wingback so wouldn’t need another really.

2.) 04 Jul 2018 22:00:48
I think we will go 4231 and possibly switch to a 352 if we struggle to get a grip of the game or depending on opposition formation



08 Feb 2018 21:31:02
Programme sales will be up on Saturday because if your like me you will need one to identify all the players!


1.) 08 Feb 2018 21:44:16
Save your money Chugsy and use the sky sports app 👍

2.) 08 Feb 2018 21:49:23
Have you not heard, we have taken pity on the women that paraded the Darts players to the hockey, they will be parading all our new players with a board stating their names before each game starts for the rest of the season. You can sponsor the girls aswell as the players now. 😁 😁 😁 😁 😁 😁 😁.

3.) 09 Feb 2018 10:46:18
I'm already on the next flight!!! ✈️✈️✈️

4.) 09 Feb 2018 19:41:09
if Hein**kin created the ideal football fans scenario then that would be it

5.) 10 Feb 2018 09:56:27
It's official Forest now have more talent on their books than Hooters!

What can possibly go wrong?



31 Jan 2018 23:58:59
Both Watson and Guadeora have had contracts ended so both can sign tomorrow.


1.) 01 Feb 2018 00:18:54
Geddy already signed.

Have Barnsley won yet, asking for a friend.




28 Jan 2021 20:01:13
Hughton has to go, he just can't or won't see the problems. Get rid.


1.) 28 Jan 2021 20:35:41
Been saying that for a while chugsy.
The club needed a new direction as much as i dislike the recruitment there is a better team and formation in this squad.
With what he's asking for in Gosling and Murray it gives me dread for the future with him in charge.
Football has moved on and we play rotherham in the near future and they play three at the back?
That system has to have a different view to our tactics but it won't.
Stubborn comes to mind with him and not moving with the times.
Life evolves all the time no matter how old we have to move on and adpt to those times.
Always said this club owes me nothing as it gave me some of the best times of my life but i'd like to see the younger generations enjoy just a bit of what I've seen.
The dross that's been served up unďer marinakis needs to stop.
Sack Vrentzos and all his cronies .
Bring in proper football people and take a chance on a younger manager.
We can laugh all we like at roonys appointment but i bet he does ok under far worst restrictions than hughton.
Despite my age i have no problem playing one up front its how most teams play but you can't make that work with old pros with no pace.
Said it before we shouldn't have made him manager best it ends sooner rather than later.



27 Jan 2021 22:49:22
Villa hold on to their best player and add a couple of good ones from clubs that sell. One of those clubs slides into the bottom 4 of the league.
They have a chance to build again around the continued stream of great young talent but yet again rumours are abound that they intend to sell one of our own.
Meantime another one of our youngsters smashes the winner at Old Trafford
Won't we ever learn, won't we ever be able to stop outsiders on our payroll making all the wrong decisions for all the wrong reasons. Won't we ever learn.


1.) 28 Jan 2021 10:38:23
Mate he scored a deflected effort that wrong footed keeper.
He left Forest over 4 years ago and has been passed from club to club. 7 goals in over 100 appearances for a forward.
Good business selling him.



06 Aug 2019 11:18:01
Why are we spending money on defenders when we need some quality up top.
Does Lamouchie think he is going to defend his way out of this division?
O dear.


1.) 06 Aug 2019 12:44:50
Linked with a french striker.

2.) 06 Aug 2019 12:50:51
Will the French be fried

3.) 06 Aug 2019 13:15:53
What's his name? Indie netto?

4.) 06 Aug 2019 13:37:32
No 79 he is called (Off the Mark guillotine).



27 May 2019 17:39:30
McGinn and Marriot, both players could have been reds but we quibbled over approx. 500k on both the deals and lost them both.
Next tome Forest, when your scouts come up with names please be a little more forward thinking.


1.) 27 May 2019 18:11:57
Very true chugs, not sure if you saw the AV game at the CG but McGinn was shear class . A class above !

2.) 27 May 2019 18:40:47
Yes I was there and he was the star of the show today against Direby

Every player from that part of the world, whether Olympiakos or Benfica a supposed to be world beaters but never are. They have the image built up to get rid, if they were world beaters they wouldn’t be letting them go.

Hasn't Benalouane just signed a one year contract extension.

We have a very good young right back coming through but maybe isn't quiet ready yet. Someone on a one year contract with championship winning mentality would be ideal

For most of the time Ben's nearest link to other players is the 4 or 5 opposition defenders, with no sign of support from his own midfield. He has battled well for someone so young

I agree totally, it’s what is needed and thank god we have at least arrived at the start of our re emergence.

Even worse we pay Bong 17.5k pw and Christie 20k pw just to kick the ball to the opposition, lose the ball or just kick it out. Useless the pair of them.

Lolley should start I agree and Christie should be replaced. Cost us tonight, suspect for both the goals and he demands so much of the ball and his crosses are woeful. The crosses that do get in the box never find a red shirt. Is he anti Forest? Beginning to wonder.

Totally agree with your assessment and would also like to add that the number of hoof balls from defence doesn’t suit us. Grabban can’t head won’t head and Taylor is always a yard behind the high ball so we HAVE to play on the grass.

Like the idea of Lolley in the ‘ten’ role and play freeman wide.
