A good friend of mine who lives in the Hucknall area attended Worrall's birthday at a local pub that way and was informed that Worrall has been seriously sounded out by Burnely over a move over to them this window. It sounded to him like it's further than just initial talks too.

As our club is still regarded as damaged goods we should make a bid to take Jon Flanagan on loan from Liverpool so both can repair reputations?

He has been put on the naughty step by his club so he needs to go somewhere to be looked after and get regular game time rather than join a Premiership squad

Great athlete and aggressive who can play on both flanks. Just what we need?

Believable3 1Unbelievable

17 Jan 2018 19:50:07
I'd love to see a rumour rather than a questions or news on here at some point!

Shall I get you started people? I've heard Karanka might be after a Premier League defender. Maybe someone older toward the end of their contract might be on the cards.

Red i think we need some steel that we can call our own. Who want to die for the shirt. We need a mckenna as skipper loans are ok but do they have the passion like us????

17 Jan 2018 20:08:33
What's the point in saying we need a McKenna as skipper?
That's a 40 year old retired player,

17 Jan 2018 20:29:54
OK, so for the Red Trick Cyclist.

There is a rumour ECHOing around the Liverpool media that Flanagan will be sent out on loan as punishment for damaging the clubs reputation.

Klopp originally wanted to send him straight to Coventry but they could only afford peanuts and so is sending him to Brazil to crack him into place doing his Community Service in the Forest!

There is "No Question" that this move would be good both both parties!

thought it was a season long loan but could be wrong?
Do we think AK wants to assess him or sell him?

I've seen him play for mk dons twice this season and I think he could push for a first team place bags of pace but his end product isn't always the best he would certainly be a decent option on the right wing which would also mean we could get ward and carayol off the wage bill would be a good move in my opinion

Franz Carr did what Oliver Burke did ,got the crowd excited and he did it in the top league for a bit longer,
13 million? Best business the club has done,vastly overrated,nearly one mill for every game he played for us.
Good luck to him though,but he's made his money and still a kid.

It has been suggested that Cummings leaving us a sign AK has got someone coming in soon.

Anything is possible.

AK said he was going to have a good look at his squad before making any decisions yer he let's Cummings go without giving him a chance. This could come back and bite us

Agree4 3Disagree

15 Jan 2018 21:20:56

I think AK said he wanted to have a good look before deciding how many signings he wanted to make.

He clearly decided quickly about some players, and others wants to give a little extra time to.

Agree1 2Disagree

15 Jan 2018 22:16:36
I reckon Cummings didn’t settle which is partly why he didn’t get games under Warburton and probably told AK straight away he was home sick so has been shipped out I would imagine if he does well whilst on loan will can demand higher fee at least pity though as I felt he could have done something.

Agree5 1Disagree

15 Jan 2018 23:45:55
Cummings is never going to cut it in Championship as he does not have the pace required to succeed?

Hold on. didn't Cummings bag a brace against Premiership Newcastle, against Laschelles. tipped to be an England great in the future ????? Just saying

Agree4 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 10:14:10
Newcastle put out a reserve team against Forest and Lascelles was on the bench.

Back four,Gamez, Hanley, Mbemba, Sterry

Hanley ( another rubbish Scottish defender) was sold to Norwich after the game and Sterry sent to Coventry.

Enough said?

Eric Lichaj scored a fantastic brace against Arsenal but that doesn't make him a striker?
what a strange point to make

Still a better back four than we can field

Agree3 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 15:28:38
Not really a strange point to make is it when his suitability in the championship is questioned when he put the sword to a premiership team. But nobody is questioning Lihaj's ability are they ???? The mind boggles. let's see ehat he does at Rangers.

Agree1 1Disagree

16 Jan 2018 15:45:33
In my opinion, and yes I am allowed one, Cummings is a better striker than Brereton and Walker. Also I think wAlker is a better striker than brereton. I’ve yet to see brereton hit a decent shot on goal that hasn’t been scuffed or deflected. Had a good game against arsenal but didn’t score and should of done. One for the future bla bla bla, forest need good players now

16 Jan 2018 18:13:25
Billy, I think Vellios is a better striker than the lot of them but he has not even been selected in the 18 man squad?
AK says they will all get a chance to prove them selves? Let's see if Vellios is seen again

James Collins been looked at on loan from West Ham. 34 years old and contract up in summer. Seems surplus ti them and told he can leave on loan.
Id take him in a flash but fear he attract better interest then us.

Believable5 5Unbelievable

15 Jan 2018 10:34:37
He would probably want a similar contract to Murphy, ie money and length. Do you think he is worth that?

Agree2 3Disagree

How old is john terry??? Its a bit different age wise with central defenders. collins would be perfect.

Agree2 2Disagree

15 Jan 2018 11:19:36
The length of contract Murphy had was nothing to do with a 'bad' deal for Forest, it was about FFP and spreading the cost of his signing over three seasons to keep inside FFP.

Agree2 8Disagree

15 Jan 2018 11:32:48
Rutland red1

Ok if you are right i will accept that, but if we give him a three year contract that takes him to 37 years old, and that is not taking into account wsges.

Please name 12 quality central defenders in the Premiership, and Championship that are 37 years old.?

Agree2 1Disagree

15 Jan 2018 11:44:13

You are probably right about ffr, but my point was, is Collins in the posters view worth a 3 year deal for the money he would want.

What do you think, is Collins.?

Agree2 4Disagree

15 Jan 2018 14:21:14
Greyandred. Don't get you. We have zero quality centre backs at our club. We need experience and that comes at an age. Why name 12 what does that mean. I can name you one who is now 37 john Terry, who did not break sweat against us. We need a couple of defenders for the next season or two.
Hobbs we do not know the truth, worral is getting better but mancienne has never improved.
So collins is a great shout, for me anyway.

Agree6 1Disagree

15 Jan 2018 14:37:56
I would have thought Crystal Palace might want Collins as they have lost Scott Dann to injury?

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jan 2018 14:55:40
Rutland red1

You can have experienced central defenders without being that age.

You said age is not such a big factor for central defenders, in which you name John Terry as an example.

If age is not that big a factor there would be plenty of quality central defenders in their mid to late 30's at the highest level, like i said a 3 year contract means he would be 37.

If you can only name Terry that means he is a rarity, not the norm as you were suggesting.

I do not think he is good enough for that Length of contract, and the money he would expect.

So we just have to agree to disagree

Agree1 2Disagree

15 Jan 2018 15:25:50
Understand your point on Collins three year contact, maybe we should concentrate on players no older than 31

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jan 2018 19:04:41
It might be redundant saying it in chugsy’s defence now, but he’s right about spreading the cost of the transfer over several years.

There was an article recently which explained Wolves have done something slightly similar with some of their players.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jan 2018 21:29:09
Tomorrow, ahem, I mean Greyandredman as your are now:)

It's all just rumours as you say, both for players leaving and joining. So, yes I do think Collins would be a good signing and I do think Worrall could learn from him.

I wish some of you would get off mills back. The lad can’t piss about sorting his hair do out and play football ! I thought Darlow was bad but Haley (mills) beats him hands down. I like the way he let's his hair down when the game finishes like he’s just put in a shift!

I mentioned a few weeks back, that getting to 50 points was going to be tough. Barring stellar signings, that thought hasn't changed. We are in a fortunate position where 4 or 5 teams are worse than us but with 6 pointers to play, that could change. I'm not going to sugar coat the situation but AK needs to find some steel for our defense and get some points on the board.

MW's style of play was not suited to our players or our current league position, we need AK to address this. Another concern is the lack of goals in the league, what's the story with Murphy? His purchase and contract aren't looking great decisions at present. With Cummings seemingly going, McKay peripheral, Darikwa not good enough and Dowell dipping in form, our summer business isn't shaping up. I hope AK can dig up some warriors, up for the fight and the owners back him. If not, we're still not out of danger. FTID.

Without knowing more of our finances we can't comment on selling there could be 6 or 7 mill of britts money left if the increased gates and sponsorship has reduced the monthly deficit, were the fawas loans wiped with the sale if the club ? There are too many variables would be nice to spend 6 or 7 mill without selling younger stars and make room on the wage bill by getting rid of the likes of mills hobbs ect

Agree2 0Disagree

14 Jan 2018 19:29:02
it all depends on the player and my understanding is BB loves Forest and wants to stay. contracts mean sod all if the player wants to go.
If he does have his head turned it makes sense to get the most we can to pay for replacements.
football is a business sponsored by addicts like us

I don’t know that’s Great Money for Forest however this is where add ons come in.
£13 million for B.B. or £10 for Worrall is decent and brilliant if like Pat Bamford say they go nowhere and end up as a reserve in Championship in 3 years but if they go on to become solid international etc and meet their potential well then it seems cheap! If we sell any of our young players we must make sure they have add ons such as sell on fee and appearance/clean sheet/goals bonuses where if they continue solid progress then it means the fee goes up to the £18-25 mil mark imo

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Jan 2018 16:47:07
I said take the money because none of them are good enough. Sell the lot of them. This team can get us relegated. How close was it last season and we had Britt then. I’m all for bringing the youngsters on but not at the expense of the team.

Agree4 0Disagree

13 Jan 2018 21:28:17
Interesting stat mentioned in the game our squad today was purchased by 5 different managers who bought them for different reasons and to play to play different styles, how many managers have had this defence now I can only see one constant and the same problem.

Believable3 0Unbelievable

14 Jan 2018 09:18:10
Yes but Red James, we HAD to get rid of Warburton because we weren’t challenging for promotion. Can’t you see?

On a slightly more serious note - what could realistically have been expected of AK yesterday? He had less than a week to implement a new strategy with a ‘pick n mix’ squad.

Agree5 2Disagree

14 Jan 2018 11:33:34
apart from Traore that defence was rock solid under Dougie Freedman.

Agree4 3Disagree

14 Jan 2018 11:45:00
Under Freedman we only had Antonio with any freedom to go forward, the rest had to defend first, then run over acres of the pitch to get close to taking a shot, let alone in the oppositions 6 yard box.

Agree3 2Disagree

14 Jan 2018 11:46:52
They never troubled us defensively yesterday.
Let's be honest. They hit the bar and scored a goal and that was it.

Unfortunately, there seems to be a desire to play with a defensive midfielder in every game for some unknown reason?

At home against teams who sit back and soak up pressure it would be better to play with two up front and organise the midfield better so we don't get countered.

How's about the midfield hold midfield for a change and the strikers try and kick the ball in the net.

Vaughan is our best player but he shouldn't be! He shouldn't even be playing when were at home!!!!

Agree6 1Disagree

14 Jan 2018 14:00:32
I wasn't doubting MW sacking but until someone gets a good run in charge it will never change you could have the best manager in the world but without funds how can he shape the squad he wants I just can't see an end to this merry go round

Agree2 0Disagree

14 Jan 2018 15:30:46
Under Freedman we defending as a team and I expect Karanka to install that in these players over the coming month but our midfield and forwards under MW didn’t track back enough even our fullbacks would bomb for Arsenal and not get back or get covered. It is one issue I have with Dowell though he is our best player at creating he is awful in any defensive way, McKay, Clough, Walker, Cummings are all poor at times tracking back. Cash and Osbourn make a big difference cause can push forward and have the energy to get back too and also means Vaughan can sit back in Centre too.
Under Monty and MW we didn’t defend as a team and this was difference when Brasil came in for Leeds and Arsenal we were solid as a team defensively and organised to defend as well as attack. Even yesterday we were better and Villa didn’t get many real chances but is still work to do.

Also - pitching a new show to the BBC next week. “Fawaz’s Bank Balance” stars in an Apprentice style spinoff called “You’re Forest Fired”. Two managers sacked every episode. The sister show called “A club on it’s knees” presented by Dougie Freedman, who as usual, looks soaking wet.
