Looks like Jimmy Gilligan is back at Forest in charge of the under 23's. Cohen is his assistant.

Tyler Walker is Forest's best finisher. I've said it for a long time.

Walker is playing in a league that suits his ability hence him scoring goals.

Just been reading an article on Brereton Nixon states forest are now willing to let him go to Blackburn and the only thing that's holding up things is the sell on clause if he was to reach his potential and move to a bigger club it will be a loan till January then a permenant deal don't no what everyone else thinks but I don't think we should be looking to sell season long loan deal would be better but not to look to sell him now he's only 19 and he will get better any thoughts?

Madness. This lad could be our future. What’s he done wrong to be exciled. It makes me sick to the bottom of my stomach. I’ve been optimistic and kept an open mind but I’m starting to swing towards Skegsjay and FF79. Some of Krankies selections, formations and tactics are questionable and not working but he’ll keep playing Grabban who is like a slug and doesn’t look interested and the £13m splashed out doesn’t look like a wise purchase at the mo, he ain’t no Reuben Neves.

In fairness carvalho has played quite well imo, always looks for a key pass and can dribble to not to mention his work rate.
He just needs a bit more time to adapt and then I’m sure the goals and assists will start rolling in

I watched Brereton very closely at the end of last season when he was playing ever game and though he didn’t score his runs were good and he improved and scored a few good goals in the last few games. Forest shouldn’t sell him. I am not convinced by Grabban or Murphy and both are older and won’t be around for more than a few more seasons. Loaning Brereton might help him but in my eyes he could be our 30 goal striker within 2-4 seasons if he continues his growth. Personally I would be playing him at the moment as think with lads like Carvalho and Dias etc around him and team in high spirits he would get goals.

Agree3 1Disagree

20 Aug 2018 15:51:05
What if this was the plan from the start?maybe karanka was told that in order for funds to be made available one young lad would have to go.
What baffles me is that brereton is apparently going to be the dogs dangly bits yet it’s only Blackburn that are after him,you would of thought other clubs would be fighting for him?

Sutton_Red85 sadly I think the 9 goals in 57 games means no one is going to clammer for his signature.

And I think that RedRascal has made a very good point but again will he make the grade?

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2018 21:57:06
It's not the strikers,it's the tactics,
Grabban scored for fun most of his career at this level and so did Murphy,brereton won't score many eitherplaying karankas way.
Look at WBA they have rodregueze and have signed Gayle,but they play both together,answer is goals.

Karanka is too stubborn and set in his ways than to play with two strikers hence not many goals.
He's in charge though so we'll just gave to hope the midfield score the goals and get a few from the rotated strikers.

The clamour for starting Matty Cash every week needs to be tempered by the fact that he now needs to learn very quickly that he needs to vary his game.

Scored a great goal having been played in brilliantly by Carvalho but then in nearly evey game I've watched him play he cuts in and does a swan dive to claim a penalty!

Conned the ref at Wigan but heis going to cost us over the season if he does not focus on his talent of actually beating his man and playing in a killer pass.

Grow up young man and make that wide right position your own. You will learn from playing with Byram and need to keep Darikwa on the bench!

Believable2 13Unbelievable

19 Aug 2018 20:20:25
Redinexile off course he still has a lot to learn but think about 2 things : 1 he is not the first to go down to gain a advantage, there are too many to keep track of. Last season just about every Leeds player that came to the City Ground used theatrics all over the pitch, and it was only when we were 2-0 down the officials realised what they were up to. 2 Cash and Soudani are responsible for us having 4 of our points so Cash has earned the right to start until his form dictates otherwise.

Agree11 0Disagree

19 Aug 2018 22:44:13
Cash dives every game he plays and you can predict the game play.

All I'm saying if you can see it from the terraces then the opposition and refs will be picking it up already and he will get found out so he needs to get cutte as he is no Ronaldo?

He will have a better impact staying on his feet!

Hopefully Sam Byram will be match ready for the next game and we can start playing a proper right back which will stop a lot of these defence splitting crosses coming in.

We need to work on defending and attacking set pieces and stop Pants getting blocked off as well as being more aggressive to high balls. I sense The Hef will be drafted in to sort this?


Believable8 1Unbelievable

19 Aug 2018 11:41:00
Yep we can moan and deliberate all we like but simple fact is left and right back aren't anywhere near good enough crosses are raining in darikwa completely sold himself for the second goal diving in teams know this and is destroying the back 4

Why must he? Football is a 14 man game and if AK thinks he is better as an impact player at this stage in his development then so be it. So far he has never dominanted a game for 90 mins so maybe AK knows best?

Being Portuguese appears to equal being in form. Wake up Aitor , playing these guys over the likes of cash appears to be an egotistical move rather than one that is right for the club.

Agree1 1Disagree

19 Aug 2018 11:52:30
Never dominated 90 mins he scores first goal early on , makes the second in the dying minutes , always making runs throughout game . No way he's not an impact sub for me , just becoming an impact player 🤗

We should not be loaning brereton he should be our 3rd choice striker in front of Murphy. He should get plenty of game time coming off bench starting off games. The lads only going to get better. He's only 19 years old.
Playing in his favoured position with the better players we have this season will do him loads more good.
And his value will ticket in today's crazy market
Keep hold of him.

Believable4 3Unbelievable

18 Aug 2018 07:23:59
Brereton and Murphy are different strikers and fit different tactics.if you want to play away with a lone striker to win balls in the air Murphy is First choice and brereton third maybe 4th if you include Soudani.if you want a goal scorer and your going to play football and want to bring the midfielders into play Grabban is 1st choice and brereton is second.maybe even 3rd if ya want to put Soudani in not saying get rid but brereton and Murphy play different not saying get rid but he needs to wait and take his chance when it comes or decide to go out on loan until jan.
He played last season and he also went to an england tournament so maybe he’s being looked after properly rather than burning him out.the comp didn't finish till end of July.

Agree2 3Disagree

18 Aug 2018 09:03:24
It comes down to how badly the club need the money to balance the books. How do we know that Forests plan was always going to be offloading a youngster or two to balance the books after the summers spending. For me, 8m for Brereton presents good money. Whether he should be getting game time or not is another story but the fact is he isn't, AK sees him as 4th striker right now.

Agree0 4Disagree

18 Aug 2018 11:11:10
It's obviously not down to money as it's now a loan window?

I'd sell at 8 mill with a decent sell on clause bb ain't going to get much game time

Agree5 2Disagree

17 Aug 2018 20:28:07
Vulcan i do not understand your post, if Brereton is not going to get much game time a purely loan deal would be ideal for both Forest and Brereton. If you want a decent sell on clause that suggests you think he will be a quality player, so why sell.

Agree3 1Disagree

17 Aug 2018 20:45:50
We can't sell, only loan with a view to sell.
Loan him out to get game time but keep him for the future if we can afford to.
If we need to sell in January to raise funds then get the best deal we can with a sell on clause like Vulcan says

Agree2 0Disagree

17 Aug 2018 20:48:44
I personally wouldn't like to sell,but if the offer keeps increasing it would be hard to resist. Maybe Aitor should take a leaf out of Daragh MacAnthonys book.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Aug 2018 21:02:48
I just don’t get the logic of some people?
Brereton is our lad, he cost us nowt, he was thrown in at the deep end last season and did a fantastic job. He’s still a teenager at the start of his career. We don’t need the money, we don’t need to sell and we’re not exactly flushed in the striker department. Grabban might hold the ball up well but from what I’ve seen so far, he lacks a bit of pace and I guess he was bought in to bag the goals, early doors still I know and I’m not knocking him. I like the look of Soudanni, he has the temperament to do well. Murphy is at the twilight end of his career and won’t be prolific. And that’s it, our 4 forwards. Which brings me back to young Ben. He has pace, he’s strong and has an eye for goal, look at how many he scored in the under 18/23 sides.?Scores for England and has the ability to run defenders ragged. No wonder Blackburn are offering millions. I say keep him and let him blossom.

Agree7 2Disagree

17 Aug 2018 21:04:20
Reddog68. I realise we can not sell, and only loans are possible, although it is possible to agree to make it permanent at the end of the loan spell for a agreed fee. I feel that only benefits Blackburn, like i said a purely loan deal would suit both us and Ben more. We are no longer a team that needs to sell, unless a player wants to leave off course.

Agree2 0Disagree

17 Aug 2018 21:28:55
Why would anyone want to strengthen a rival championship team for no financial reward (until January) If someone could please enlighten me.

Agree1 1Disagree

17 Aug 2018 23:05:29
I would say we all agree that we want to keep BB but are we sure we don't need to sell?
Both TAP and Stags say we don't need to sell and I really do hope you are right but we are a business and books need to be balanced?
Our club wants premiership football and sacrifices will be made to get there. Hang on and hopfully enjoy the ride

Unless we are bringing in another forward of prem quality. We should not be letting brereton even go out on loan.
He should be ahead of Murphy every week.
Murphy Is past it and we should be developing the likes of brereton and worrell not loaning or selling them.

Believable16 9Unbelievable

16 Aug 2018 17:29:56
I think they would both benefit from loans if they are getting game time but I wouldn't like to see them sold. Both could have big futures ahead of them. Lascelles was ripped apart on here and nobody was bothered when he went to Newcastle. Now he is on the fringe of the England squad and worth 30 mill.

Agree9 1Disagree

16 Aug 2018 18:16:41
Nobody was bothered when he went to Newcastle? Didn’t we get a pretty good deal and a loan back for the season? Nobody will moan when we do well out of a deal which to be fair at that time we really needed

Agree6 1Disagree

16 Aug 2018 18:59:17
I agree with everything you are saying 2tone. What I would say is that we are now in a better situation than back then. We are not under pressure to sell to make ends meet and that gives us more bargaining power.I personally wouldn't like to sell either player sold just yet. In an ideal world we should encourage them to develop as players and increase their potential selling price of that were to transpire.

Agree3 0Disagree

16 Aug 2018 19:53:49
Brereton is 19 and Worrall is 21 and they have played 53 and 65 senior matches each in struggling teams and are still learning their trade despite winning honours and trophies with England. They are our future as were Lascelles and Darlow who were sold in a fire sale.

Neither are going to be the stand out performers this season to get us our target of promotion but need to develop their game playing week in week out and would benefit from a loan deal. Under no circumstances should they be sold as they will be regulars next year in the Championship or given the chance if we go up where they will have more time to play and improve.

If you want an example of allowing a player to develop then it's Jack Grealish arguably the Championship's best young prospect. He is 22 but now has 137 senior games (100 in the Championship) under his belt, having had a loan season at Notts. Now worth £30m and would have been at Spurs if the builders had finished on time.

The smart business is to get them playing a full season on loan to develop them and their value then loan a Premiership striker to complete our Championship squad?

Agree5 4Disagree

16 Aug 2018 20:54:47
Cash in and get a striker that can actually score goals now. 20m for Brereton in 3 years time or 180m for getting promoted to the Prem come what may?

Agree4 3Disagree

Cash in now?the window is closed !

17 Aug 2018 20:21:17
I would loan him out get game time get used to scoring he didn't get many last season yes he played out of position a few times but look at grant 19 last season for Notts already scoring so do bb the world of good game
