After scanning through both sets of statements i feel the Americans were prepared to pay close to what Fawaz wanted so Fawaz went into negotiations. When the Americans saw the state of the books and the rubbish results they realised Fawaz ran the club nearly into the ground, and there was an opportunity to offer only a fraction more for the whole percentage. The Americans are not bothered about Fawaz pulling out because they will get either compensation, the club cheaper if we go into League 1, maybe even both.

So they upped the offer but wanted 100% relatively speaking how are we too that in that case the offer didn't equate to the same?

JjMoores has made another bid for 100% of the club. Reports saying Fawaz has rejected it.

Confirmed, this was tweeted by Paul Taylor less than an hour ago, if this is true it proves that Fawaz is intent on taking the club out of the football league, why else would he not do the decent thing and let someone else try and save it? The man is an absolute disgrace, he is the single worst thing to ever happen to our club.

Agree7 4Disagree

19 Jan 2017 19:14:57
Of course he rejected it. He always said he wanted to keep 20% during this takeover.

Agree5 2Disagree

19 Jan 2017 19:56:31
If this is correct then Fawaz Al-Hasawi hang your head in shame, don't ever repeat the words I love this club, I want wants best for the club, you are an utter disgrace .

Agree5 1Disagree

19 Jan 2017 20:04:27
He did say he would sell outright if the offer was good enough. Maybe there maybe another buyer waiting in the wings and he's waiting for this to blow over OR maybe he's been given the green light to use more of the family money.

Agree2 3Disagree

19 Jan 2017 21:40:44
Just read a report by the Americans saying that 100% takeover was the preferred deal wanted by Fawaz . That's on sly sports so seems people slagging him off for trying to keep 20% have got it wrong.

New Financial Officer appointed, ex Norwich City CFO Samantha Gordon, Fawaz says he is working on appointing the rest of the executive team,4 years too late!

Fawaz now has his financial scapegoat! It'll be her fault now!

Agree6 4Disagree

19 Jan 2017 18:14:00
Lets just back her and hope the finances can be improved. The take over is off, we need to survive the season and all join together and hope the right manager is chosen.

19 Jan 2017 18:33:53
Can she suggested left back and score? No, won't help us.

19 Jan 2017 18:55:22
I'll give her a month till she finds out how Fawaz operates and then she'll walk.

Agree7 2Disagree

19 Jan 2017 19:29:12
Fawaz will sell Henri to pay the January wage bill, and we'll get another croc in to replace him no doubt.

With all the crocs we have, people must think we are based in Florida

Believable3 11Unbelievable

19 Jan 2017 16:43:37
Fawaz will choose the cheapest option so it will be Brazil or Jack. As everybody has already said no manager outside the club will touch us with a barge pole while he is the owner.

No chance.

Serious support today with bookies for Nigel Pearson 5/2 and shortening He would be a good choice don't you all agree?

Believable15 3Unbelievable

19 Jan 2017 14:50:05
Definitely agree! If he is willing to work for Fawaz he would be a good choice. How long before they clash? Pearson will not take any s**t from Fawaz or the players for that matter.

19 Jan 2017 14:55:00
I thought you want someone else, your support soon faded. Fawaz does the same. Look where we are as a result.

I wonder what odds are for FAH to be the next manager? The club is such a joke that I wouldn't put it past him.

I can see Fawaz and Pearson getting on just fine.

Agree1 3Disagree

19 Jan 2017 16:50:51
It took 3 months before Pearson got fed up of Morris's meddling and nutted him. He'd end up doing Fawaz in the first week.

HL to Villa in the next 24 hrs, fee on the region of 3/3.5 million, almost another million from Bamford's fee. Will it be re-invested? Probably not, same old story, sick of it all now!

Believable7 0Unbelievable

19 Jan 2017 14:12:07
Another one of our best players leaving need to reinvest in some up and coming players from lower leagues so when we play in league one next season they will have knowledge of it lol😎

Agree3 5Disagree

19 Jan 2017 14:16:45
I agree Daz. How many millions have we taken in transfer fees? Darlow, Lascelles, Antonio, Burke, Patterson, DeVries, Lansbury (subject to transfer going through) , Bamford sell on clause. the list goes on. That's tens of millions of pounds. all we get in return is a management merry-go-round and free signings. It's clear to me what is happening- expect Brit to be the next one sold. The club is a joke. FAWAZ OUT

Agree6 2Disagree

19 Jan 2017 14:32:09
This club is spending too much in wages. Would you pay Lansbury £40,000 plus per week, £160,000 per month, £2,080,000 per year, even in the Championship, I think not. Get real.

Agree9 1Disagree

19 Jan 2017 14:57:14
Not saying we should pay anyone that kind of money, but Fawaz is running this club into the ground. Good luck to HL and his 40k a week, who wouldn't take that offer. Villa are a PL team, like it or not, and have the money to go with it, and by the looks of things they have a plan and structure in place, something we can only wish for.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Jan 2017 15:19:43
Villa were relegated and are currently mid table 10 points off playoff places so how are they a premier league team ? Better than us granted but it's all about money for HL rather than playing for the badge

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Jan 2017 15:29:22
The sad reality is we are losing about 1 mill a month, so unless we have a generous sugar Daddy to Bank roll us we have to sell. I have to say, I really don't think Villa will escape the champ this season although HL's prospects of getting there are a lot better with them.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Jan 2017 15:40:30
To be quite honest, I think he have a very charitable and generous transfer strategy that is to be applauded. We develop and bring through excellent youth products to sell at a good price, so that money can go towards the wages of has-been journeymen desperate for their next pay-day and deadbeat Managers that struggle to find work elsewhere. We're a charity club and we should be proud to help these people. If we called ourselves Red Cross Forest we'd have an knighthood by now.

Agree2 0Disagree

If Lansbury is getting the £40k a week reported. Forest have just done a great piece of business. £3 m for a player we paid a million for. A player who would have gone for nothing in 3 months. £40 k a month is over £2 million a year.

He was a one game in four player at best. He has a poor attitude and like many others he has played the less than a year left on his contract situation perfectly. Looking good in televised games. Happy to play for us on Saturday, but not to sign a new deal. Why? Because he was quite happy to wait until the summer, when as well as the £40k a week, he would have got a nice little signing on too. We have 6 other players out of contract in the summer.

Our club is a shambles. Only stable clubs avoid such situations to happen and we have not been a stable club since Billy Davies left the first time. That was when Nigel Doughty threw in the towel. Fawaz continues to be a disaster, but many of his mistakes have been prompted by the same group of fans who hounded out Nigel Doughty. It is not a popular view, but Fawaz got rid of Freedman because social media fans were telling him they wanted attacking football.

13 matches unbeaten was not good enough in an embargo with no fit strikers. Sean O'Driscoll was not stellar enough for the same group of fans. Pearce was jettisoned to quickly because pressure was mounting. They threaten boycotts and protests if more players aren't signed.

They boo when players come onto the pitch. They boo if it is nil nil at half time. They complain when Burke is sold for £13 m but stay away from the ground because ticket prices are to high. Fawaz has been a fool, but something far more fundamental is wrong with our once great club.

There is something fundamentally wrong with our once great game. I posted yesterday that it is crazy that Paul Pogba is worth £35 million more than our club. It was put into 'other posts' section. I want to do something more to help my club. Apart from paying out over £1000 on two season tickets, or buying a shirt from the club shop. I want to change the culture of the club the players and the supporters.

I want a club I can be proud of, with players who are proud to play for us. I don't want protests. I don't want boycotts. I don't want booing. I want to enjoy going to the City Ground again. We will alway have to sell players. We will always get messed about by selfish players like Lansbury, until we start filling the ground and making my it a great place to play.

When the City Ground becomes our Theatre of Dreams. Manchester United have bad owners and they just became the richest club in the world. Why because they fill their ground and when it was full they made it bigger. Supporters Trust make this happen and I would walk over glass to help you.

Well said Wishey! I understand the frustration of the these people that are protesting, however what are they going to achieve. nothing positive, just create a negative atmosphere and pile more pressure on the players! We all need to get behind the team/club now and give them every opportunity to get out of this mess. I say good luck to Henri. If I was offered double my wages I would take it, plus Forest have to look at the deal on the table and see it as a good piece of business. Some people say pay Henri £40k a week, but not only is that what put us in FFP problems before but there are other players in the squad that would have to be paid that as well due to clauses in contracts.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jan 2017 06:27:42
Fawaz has no intention of getting a DOF, CEO, Finance Director or Manager before the end of the season or at all. It's all a smokescreen. He has lost total interest in the club, which he still wants to sell. There must be some legal way of getting rid of him.

Believable7 7Unbelievable

19 Jan 2017 08:34:47
Only legal way to get rid of him is have him committed. Otherwise, stump of the £££.

It wasn't Fawaz that said he was bringing people in. It was reported by a very highly regarded midlands sports reporter who reported on forest way back as far as the Cloughie era.

Agree4 0Disagree

19 Jan 2017 12:10:47
How many times have we had people at the club who know what it takes to run it in a proper manner for fawaz to undermine them and get rid, I'm trying to think of a way he can attract a decent manager but also a lot of the problem is players not playing to their potential I know don't help being put out of position but still they should be held accountable to hope rowet or clough comes but can't see it happening

Agree1 1Disagree

19 Jan 2017 12:38:00
There have been no messages from Fawaz since the deal collapsed. I actually believe the original statement. What manager (CEO, DOF financial director) will manage Forest with no plan moving forward except that the owner wants to sell and has no intention of spending any money to improve the squad or club. Hate to admit it but the future of the club at this time is bleak. Having said that I believe we have the players to keep us up. just!
