Rumoured to want Rangers keeper, but report suggests a hefty fee to get him, only my opinion but that is wasting money, hefty sum if going to be spent needs to go on midfield, or defence.

diego rolan from bordeaux were going to Fulham for 5m.
He's been to the training ground twice but still hasn't signed.
Apparently waiting for a better offer!
Would really be worth looking at, on the condition he may like what he see's first time out.
As any player, who has to think to much about joining, ain't for us!

Jackson Irvine having medical tommorow, brilliant midfielder imo, will cost a few million though.

He was the only fit player at the medical centre following your informative injury post?

its usual to agree the fee first and then the medical?
Can you reveal your source or sauce hic?

Bogle has a sharp hair cut 2star 😉.

He's awful to watch we swerved one there if we were interested last season.
Obsession with leadbetter afobe rhoads too for some reason.
Wouldn't want anyone of them personally.

Agree1 1Disagree

20 Jul 2017 17:26:23
I don't no wat the obsession with Rhodes is and why people keep talking about him he's not long just signed for sheff Wednesday so they ain't going to sell him when they have only just brought him.

There are too many strikers in the Championship that have moved for big money not delivered but still think they are the main man.
Britt I fear is the last one to join that club?

Given the money hype I think we have the best options for our most successful pairings
Murphy akin to O'Hare Chappo, Lee, Deli, Hendo
Ben Bro breaking through akin to Woodcock, Birtles Davenport
Cummings hungry with attitude Roy Ernie Johnson
Velios role like Wignall Withe Holt Blackstock

At the time all these players joined they were not stellar players but fitted well into a team ethos and we did well.

In Warbo I trust to get the balance right?

According to Paul Taylor, Jorge Grant has agreed a loan back to Notts until January.

Believable4 1Unbelievable

20 Jul 2017 10:23:19
I was led to believe it was a season long loan with a recall clause which could be used in January, should we wish to do so. Good luck to the lad he did well for them last year but I suspect he may have found his level, happy to be proved wrong though.

Id rather we didn't do County any favours.

Can't we send him somewhere else?

Agree6 3Disagree

20 Jul 2017 16:03:09
Cjay, I couldn't agree more. We should be sending our kids to Mansfield to ensure county remain the laughing stock of the midlands. The hypocrisy of wanting our players on loan is just extraordinary.

Agree6 3Disagree

20 Jul 2017 16:21:53
Good luck to the lad. hope he does well for them. hopefully they get promoted, good for football in Nottingham.

Agree3 4Disagree

20 Jul 2017 16:49:07
We should be sharing our players with both the Stags and Pies and supporting the great county of Notts?

Trust me living with the tribes of Yorkshire and their petty hates is so boring and a waste of time and effort!

Agree2 2Disagree

20 Jul 2017 17:08:58
Despising Notts County is always time well spent for me Red, it's almost as fulfilling as laughing at them. Love to see us help the stags out though. I'd tap Clough Jost Burton and see if he can use our peripheral players and develop them.

Agree3 1Disagree

20 Jul 2017 17:34:27
Despising your other local teams is just daft. Mind you I think most of their fans despise us too. I would personally like to see them do well.

I wonder if spurs and arsenal would agree.

What's to despise we have only been in same division for a couple of years in living memory, never played them in a fixture that decided anything major?

Most fans pre OBE spent growing up going to both clubs before nailing colours to the mast.

Plus they have better pies and snap than City Ground and less moaners despite their lack of success?

Scottish currant bun saying that we're interested in Rangers goalie Wes or Foderingham how many more keepers and strikers do we need i thought MW wanted a small squad 🤔.

We'll have more "Keepers" than London Zoo! 🙉🙊🙉🙊.

20 Jul 2017 14:29:40
Evtimov looked a bit ropey last night, flip side is that Smith looks top drawer.

Smith gets the shirt, with Henderson backing up.

Do we need any more keepers.

Agree6 0Disagree

20 Jul 2017 16:31:29
I think Smith as no.1, Hendo as back-up, Evtimov loaned out is good enough. We have GKs from U23's who can sit on bench should smith or hendo get injured.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2017 16:45:39
If we do go for another keeper (I am happy with Smith and Henderson really) I would prefer Fotheringham to some of the others. He always looked a good young Keeper and now at 26 is hitting his best years and was a step above any other in Scotland. He is also a leader.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2017 16:50:36
Hendo will go out on loan to get fit and games once we sign another experienced keeper.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jul 2017 20:14:29
Heard of several rumours today. With Hart signing for West Ham, I have heard of an enquiry to take Darren Randolph from West Ham until January being touted. Not sure how reliable this source is compared to others.

Believable0 10Unbelievable

must of read him moaning on twitter
and straight away he is coming forest.

We are apparently in the market for a goalkeeper and most importantly, I've heard from a source directly at West Ham, if he is available On Loan. But thanks for being a sarcastic moron.

Agree2 1Disagree

20 Jul 2017 09:13:34
We can discount this one. West Ham looking for permanent deal for Randolph with Boro' favourites to land him.

Andreas Bouchalakis on trial (playing at Meadow Lane) tonight. Possible loan move from Olynpiacos for the central midfielder.

Believable6 1Unbelievable

19 Jul 2017 20:40:34
Just seen Paul Taylor also mentioned this around 7.45pm. Is anyone at the game, any good signs from him?

Apparently high expectations although has been injury prone the past couple of seasons and we've been here before from Greece.

19 Jul 2017 20:41:01
He's looking quite useful, holding mf with some good passes.

He's going to be another Kasami, Djebbour or that other guy! Please don't sign him Bread Man.

bouchalakis looked quite good i thought. nothing spectacular but looked solid enough.

Agree5 1Disagree

19 Jul 2017 22:34:23
He played well tonight, did a job in midfield. Traore was solid at left back, McKay and Caroyal were able amazing on the wings, Cummings had loads of shots at goal but didn't score.

Agree3 0Disagree

19 Jul 2017 19:32:24
Rumours are suggesting the same names but how likely are they to be true. The Newcastle player prices vary from £2m to in Excess of £2m, is it hearsay, or made up over a cuppa.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

19 Jul 2017 20:06:21
I've heard it is 1.75m with 250k in add ons based on goals and promotion to PL. It has been suggested medical has been completed this evening and transfer to be announced tomorrow.

Agree1 1Disagree

19 Jul 2017 20:19:14
Bit more than a rumour we've bid 2million for Murphy and offered him a 2 year contract.
More talks over next 24 hours with a possible medical.

It it a reliable source, who says we have please.

19 Jul 2017 21:53:18
Yep Nep mate although why we are trying to sign a 34 year old striker when we have one 10 years younger and better in Vellios I'll never know.
Waste of money.

Agree2 3Disagree

19 Jul 2017 22:36:46
Watching tonight's game and Cummings, Vellios and Brereton all looked good. not sure we need another striker.

Agree4 2Disagree

20 Jul 2017 05:11:51
We 100% need a new striker. Not saying Murphy is the answer but been at a big club like Newcastle and experience we only help the team and players.

Agree3 1Disagree

20 Jul 2017 05:59:18
Ben Brereton and Cummings aren't traditional number 9s.
Vellios is and I do rate him really highly actually but he's vastly less experienced than Murphy and in side that many are saying lacks experience and leadership - he gives both of those.

Murphy might not be of the same calibre as Britt but he's a solid 13 goal a season striker who is stronger in the air than all current options, holds the ball up better than other options and to repeat my earlier point, has great experience at this level than all our striking options combined.

It's a no brainer for me.

Agree2 1Disagree

20 Jul 2017 09:54:37
£2m is way too much for a 34 year old who didn't really do much last year in the best team in the league. He's decent and I'd be happy with him on a free or a small transfer fee (£300k or so) but that's way too much on a player who isn't going to get us challenging for top 6. If we're spending £2m I'd rather it be on a 20 year old conference striker who's hungry.

Agree3 2Disagree

20 Jul 2017 10:12:27
Agree Guv. Wouldn't be disappointed if we signed Murphy but for 2 million I'd want someone who's going to be playing a bit longer! His experience would be vital tho but no more than 500k.

Agree1 1Disagree

19 Jul 2017 18:15:06
We've put a bid of £1.75m to Newcastle for Daryl Murphy. Not sure a 35 year old is worth this sum?

I understand MW is also looking at possible bid of Cameron Jerome. Although can't see how we would afford his wages and Norwich value him at £6m. Forest willing to bid £5m max.

Believable3 8Unbelievable

19 Jul 2017 18:19:25
Typo, he's 34. Still, may work well with both Cummings or Brereton to feed off of. I can only see a season left in him at this level however, so not sure he's worth the sum mentioned.

Agree3 0Disagree

19 Jul 2017 18:31:32
He's 34. £1.75mill a bit steep.

Agree4 1Disagree

19 Jul 2017 18:46:16
How does 34 year old Daryl Murphy fit the young hungry player with undeveloped potential template? Waste of money imo, a Fawaz type purchase! I thought we d moved on from that era!

Agree6 6Disagree

19 Jul 2017 18:47:30
Proper striker with a quality record providing much needed experience. Agree that paying around £2 million is a bit steep if it were true. Let's face it, after selling Assombalonga we have a bit of cash to spend and everyone knows that.

Agree12 3Disagree

19 Jul 2017 18:53:42
Looks like it's happening though Taylor about to reveal something about it.

Agree2 1Disagree

19 Jul 2017 19:00:06
Murphys record not that great 60 odd goals in 200 games. Maybe he's more of a feeder to the front man. Maybe he's like kevin campbell ian wright said he liked playing with campbell because he got in the way of defenders allowing wrighty space to run in and score. To be honest if we get a striker would like to see someone at least capable of scoring 15 odd goals in the championship.

Agree7 0Disagree

19 Jul 2017 19:03:18
Will be massively disappointed if we replace Britt with Jerome, there's a reason they want to get rid.

Agree6 1Disagree

19 Jul 2017 19:45:17
34 yr old striker? Really "Warbs"? Please tell me it's a Rumour!

Agree4 1Disagree

19 Jul 2017 19:45:22
I reckon Lee Gregory (Millwall), Conor Washington (QPR) or even Will Grigg (Wigan) could fit nicely with what we already have. None are too old and could probably be picked up for a reasonable fee.

Agree7 1Disagree

19 Jul 2017 19:59:49
Zlatan is 34.

1.75m with 250k 'add ons' based on goals and promotion I've just heard. Looks like medical may have been completed this evening and we will announce tomorrow?

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Jul 2017 20:17:04
Murphy isn't exactly a great gosl scorer! Britt was a proper gosl machine so I'd be disappointed if he was his direct replacement. 2 million seems a lot for a 34 year old too! People that age should be free transfers. Jerome for 6 million would be a joke too. Vibe from Brentford would be a good buy and seeing as they've poached Watkins from my local team it'd be nice to see them lose out!

Agree1 1Disagree

19 Jul 2017 20:28:28
A 34 year old Daryl Murphy is not the answer surely. I no I posted a few days ago about Frazier Campbell possibly doing a job but Murphy couldn't get in a Newcastle team last season when Gayle and mitrovic were out.

Agree2 1Disagree

19 Jul 2017 20:30:15
Murphy int a bad player but 2m is silly for championship forward 34 years old. What's he got left 2years at most.
So if we pay 2m and he's on 20k a week.
Nearly 4m in total for a 34 year old. Over 2 year contract.
Don't do it warbo. 500k tops.
Cameron jerome crap 5/ 6m a joke.
Afobe 6m rising to 10m with add ons
Would be better.

Agree2 1Disagree

19 Jul 2017 20:43:36
Murphy is a battering ram. Cross into the box and he will get goals. Great to have on the bench to change a game but steep at 2 mill.

Agree4 0Disagree

19 Jul 2017 20:54:07
Afobe would be a great signing! He'd probably cost about 10 million tho! Frazer Campbell?! Are you serious!

Agree1 2Disagree

19 Jul 2017 22:44:25
So another Darius Henderson then.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2017 08:43:57
A much bettr player than Henderson, 2m is a very steep, for 1m or less would be a good buy, as he has a lot of experience that would be invaluable in closing a game out, don't see him in starting line up in home games but nice to have on bench and away games.
