Reoccurring back problem. Well done Forest if this is true.

05 Sep 2021 08:22:47
about time we stopped signing sick notes.

02 Sep 2021 16:07:55
Rodrigo Ely has signed apparently, another central defender. Not sure if it's a loan or permanent.

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Sep 2021 16:54:13
He's a free agent until the end of the season. Are we going start playing 3 at the back.

02 Sep 2021 17:10:42
Year loan according to the Forest Website.

02 Sep 2021 18:20:51
Another injury hit player. Will we never learn.

02 Sep 2021 20:43:27
Ginger its a year contract he was a free agent says the forest website πŸ˜€.

03 Sep 2021 09:55:22
Ah yeah, my bad:) .

03 Sep 2021 12:35:35
Signed in case Worrall leaves in January? Maybe he told the club if we aren't looking like he could reach the Prem with us, then he will look at his options?

03 Sep 2021 13:46:39
Reach the prem? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ More likely to reach league 1.

He meant reach the pen.
Where do I sign? 😁😁.

I have a feeling the new lad, Silva, is going to surprise a few fans. According to some West Ham lads, he was q real prospect before he was ill. Assuming he is healthy now, he will be better than people expect.

He will find it hard to score goals under hughton though cyclist.
If two proven 20 goal strikers can only manage 5 then it ain't looking good?
Agree mate he could turn out good but not under hughton.

02 Sep 2021 04:49:55
Can't see why Houghton want play a 3 5 2 formation I've never been a fan of one upfront it's to negative that's why we didn't score under sabri, but then again Ch would put 5 defenders in the middle.

02 Sep 2021 09:38:24
Lots of successful teams play one up front. It's how you use the other attacking players.

One up front with the wide players high up the pitch? Is the number 10 close enough to the striker? Are the attacking three playing the kind of balls the striker likes to feed off? Are we too slow to get the ball forward? Is the lone striker quick enough to unsettle the opposition defence?

Most of the above seem to be issues if you ask me. Either Hughton doesn't have the answers or his players don't fit the jigsaw.

I'd play a quick player if I was only playing one striker to pull defenders out of position (Grabban is too slow for this this) . I'd also expect the wide players to get alongside the striker in the centre when the attack is on the other flank. I doubt that is happening quickly enough as the midfield are playing possession football instead of taking the risk and going for the jugular.

I'd agree Grabban and Taylor would both be better playing two up front.

Lots of teams have been successful with one upfront but when was the last time forest successful with one up font we've always done best with a a good paring such collymore and Roy, Campbell and hoojidonk then again I'm going back to when we had a teams that would walk this league I'm guessing I'm a dinosaur thinking 442 is a good formation we all have a opinion that's why I love reading things on here,

01 Sep 2021 21:20:09
So we have 4 right backs and 1 plus Bong LB we have all the makings of a back 3 set up when needed including Soh, with Garner and the new lad in the middle and with the players we have can't see any room for Grabbon for me . but of course CH will not play any of that even if Silva gets on the pitch he will chatting to 3 of their defence ON HIS OWN! I have followed The Reds since the early 60s and will do so till I die I think CH is becoming one the worst tactical managers we have had he needs a win and for the team's sake I hope it comes soon 😑😑😑.

Agree5 Disagree0

02 Sep 2021 09:24:45
We have Max Lowe at left back. Desmont (Tutu) can play left back and so can Djed Spence (able to play left or right wings or full back) .

We definitely have cover at left and right back now. We just need the players to settle quickly.

01 Sep 2021 12:30:27
Heard the new CEO has had enough already. He was promised he could bring in players he wanted, although I thought that was down to the manager, but the Greeks have interfered. Shades of Fawaz.

According to who? Some 15yo on Tw*tter?

01 Sep 2021 19:06:37
Name your source Burncross serious accusations, ears are listening.

01 Sep 2021 19:53:07
Hughton was interviewed recently about players joining and his reply was.

There are several people involved in the recruitment process and they all give me details of players that should join i then look at videos of the players, with cv you can not go and watch them play like before and i make the final decision on who joins.

It appears it is a bit of mischief being passed around to me Burncross.

01 Sep 2021 20:50:51
Mcparland resigned for the same reason, interference and not being able to do his job.

01 Sep 2021 21:06:02
I heard the ceo is loving it - the easiest job he’s ever had, all he has to do is log on here every few hours and do what we tell him to do πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ.

01 Sep 2021 22:13:39
Class 2 tone. 🀣🀣🀣.

01 Sep 2021 22:27:35
Pity that CH does not, he may get the message or some tips on who to play.

02 Sep 2021 08:37:48
Well the recruitment team and manager might have changed but the window results look very similar. We are still getting in more Portuguese players and Olympiacos reserves plus players from Panama and Tunisia. They may be younger but its not markedly different from when Vrentzos was CEO.

02 Sep 2021 14:51:25
Two signings look like Greek signings - Drager from Olypiakos for obvious reasons and Silva from West Ham, who shares the same agent as Cafu, Pele and Gil Dias et al. And to be fair, had Maja not failed his medical then we may not have had Silva at all. Silva to me looks like a last minute deal pulled out of the hat by the Greek's contacts.

I think the other permanent deals - Horvath and Ojeda - are obviously from the new regime. And I believe the loans - all of which look decent - are on the advice of Chris Hughton.

Personally, I think the window had a new look about if for Forest and went reasonably well right up until the last minute when we panicked for a forward.

I think Flemming, Harroui, Mukairu, Cannon et al where also links via the new regime. Young talents with ablity and sell-on potential - Nothing like previous years!

02 Sep 2021 22:38:08
Never saw anything about a failed medical just that we never actually made an offer?

01 Sep 2021 00:29:56
From Nottingham Forest News:

"Nottingham Forest are in advanced talks to sign Middlesbrough right-back Djed Spence, according to James Olley from ESPN. The Reds are frantically trying to get a deal over the line ahead of the deadline later this evening. ".

What happened?

01 Sep 2021 16:15:29
Looks like we were late with the paperwork again.

01 Sep 2021 17:16:12
Announced on the official site that he has joined.

01 Sep 2021 18:34:07
Yep, season loan, that gives us good cover.

01 Sep 2021 00:28:38
From Nottingham Forest News:

"Nottingham Forest are making a late push to sign Lille midfielder Cheikh Niasse. Get French Football News claim that the player is set to join on loan, with a future fee of Β£8.5 million agreed. ".
