Saw that Forest are looking at Dean Marney from Burnley, contract runs out at the end of the season, 34 yrs old. Anyone know what he's like?

I'm worried the average age of our squad may be in the low 30's next season. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the value of adding experience but we also need to add some quality young prospects.

You may well be right Gazza, but it has not happened yet. I would argue our youth get too much playing time when both owners and fans want us to be at least be challenging for the play offs.

That situation needs our youth to be brought on gradually, by starting now and again, and coming off the bench regularly. Youth need time to develop so playing too often results suffer.

So do we develop youth, or do we go for possible play off contention.?

Going by what Krankie said after the match regarding experienced heads then Marney and Dawson could be 2 of the players that come in the summer.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Apr 2018 18:52:33
Marney has played 30 odd games in last three seasons. average 10per season. He has had 3 ACL injuries. He has been pictured with his agent talking to Karanka. He is 34!!!

He could be CHRIS Cowens replacement!!!!!!

Sounds like we're going to be laying a lot of crocks again after trying to offload a few of them hope we have a big squad to cover the injured next season.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Apr 2018 09:02:08
Can't see this happening, would not improve the squad at all.

Like to see us put a bid in for Lewis Grabban, a player that can hold up the ball and score goals! Not a premiership standard player but very good championship level, last year of contract at Bournemouth worth a punt if villa don't try and land him first.

Agree0 0Disagree

We may not have the best squad in the Championship but we now have a squad of determined good characters who play as a team.

Thank you AK for turning us around and getting the basics sorted!

Win lose or draw we are are moving forward as a team.

Looking forward to your summer signings and getting some big lads in including my 6'5" centre half?

We win 4 out of 18 and that's moving forward?

AK’s a good manager he needs to have a summer window to work on who he wants to sign instead of rushing for deals like in January. Also, I feel a full pre season under him will do the players some good. I expect a RB, CB, LB, CM, Winger and striker (or 2) to come in. But these will all be good quality players.
In terms of outs smith, Lichaj, manc, Hobbs, Colback (end of loan), Vaughan, Cohen (he’ll be a coach which I think he is doing now while getting/keeping fit), McKay, Murphy , Vellios and possibly Brereton so then we’d need to sign 3 strikers. Then Ward, walker, Clough, Traore will all leave.

Agree2 1Disagree

22 Apr 2018 10:43:09
It is moving forward.
Yes we lost yesterday, but from the game I watched we were pretty bloody good for really quite long spells of the game.
There were some frailties in defence, but we moved the ball well and put some good pressure on a team looking for auto promotion.
Our play leading up to the goal was sublime.
AK will no doubt have a plan for the squad in the closed season and hopefully will be backed by the owner.
I’m happy with what I’ve seen and that we will be far more competitive next season

Results at this stage are an irrelevant stat. The performances show that we are improving but it is the players Karanka has inherited that are the problem which he will obviously sort out in the summer.

Karanka clearly has a plan which is evolving which his predecessors never had which is why I am backing him to get up up into the top six next year!

Hope your right red,I just don't think he'll turn us round and can't see where the money will come from to sign quality players.
We all know managers prefer their own players,but they all inherit players,warbo did as well.
Most the squad are contracted and it's not easy to move so many players in one go.
If he wants a small squad of players that can play in different positions,that tells me we won't be signing quality.
Far as I'm concerned a striker is a striker and a defender is a defender,utility players do a job,but without being good enough to make it count when needed.
If he carries on bringing in old players then we'll always have injuries and most will be here for one last payday.
When you say performances ,then you mean last night's,because if you have been to the city ground lately,you will know performances have been dreadful and he's played at least five of his signings in those games.
So for me I'm not witnessing anything better than I've seen since Billy,of anything at times it's worst

Agree1 1Disagree

Warburton had a plan as well. And he got more points per game than Kranky.
He only had one window as well!!

That said hope Kranky gets summer to sort us out for next season.

23 Apr 2018 09:48:21
Things may not have worked out for Karanka as much as we had hoped,
but he did see the problems with the team and tried to rectify them in a quite no nonsense way, which leads me to thinking he will know the problems he has at the moment and will address them in the same manner he did before.

So I would expect a competitive squad to be assembled for next year.

How frustrating I'm sure everybody in the league are trying as hard as possible to push the sheep into that 6th place with the form they have been in since the New Year
They should be well out of it!

Sticking with my 2-1 win prediction today. Wolves to clinch the title and Fulham and Millwall to go up because their players want it more!

Karanka will recruit these types for next season without breaking the bank.

About time we gave arvin appiah a run out in the first team with not much to play for think this lads going to hit the ground running.

Believable4 4Unbelievable

21 Apr 2018 12:10:21
Not for me thanks. Out on loan if they’re ready to step up. We’ve got enough learning their trade around the 1st team at the moment. Assess every single one of the senior pros for the next four games to inform the required clearout.

If we’ve got a young left back he looks tidy that’s worth a pop amd I’d be really supportive of that. we really need to sort that position now once and for all.

Wouldn't it be great if we could give a really good account of ourselves next season??? Two decent strikers,another good CB (not Dawson)
and who knows,we might just have something to cheer about!!! The foundations are there, despite an less than average season,at least most of us can have a laugh!!! Keep The Faith!! Uuuuu Reddddsss!!!

Not a regular poster but from the horses mouth. Possibly next week an announcement regarding the City Ground and training ground. Details not given but to me that has to be a new main stand.

There are Accounts, and there are "other accounts" and there are always "hidden" accounts where bills and outgoings may not come in for a long time after they were first created, and not everyone might know about them.

Championship status secured thanks to Birmingham who now need 3 wins and a 15 goal difference turnaround to pip us.
Under Warbo's open defence this would be squeaky bum time again but as Karanka has got our goals against down to one a game you can put your house on Championship football next year.

Barnsley match is a dead rubber so maybe we should make it Matt Mills testimonial for his contribution to our improvement at the back?
Looking forward to the summer clearout and some more diehard signings.
Gone fishing.

Not just Birmingham, while mathematically possible, anyone who thinks that the 5 teams below us are all going to put together a run to overtake us needs their head examining.
It would, however, be nice for us to put a bit of a final push on to build up some confidence to go in to the closed season.
No doubt AK knows what he wants to do in the transfer window and I would imagine the owner will back him

talking of contracts didn’t your man give a 3 year contract to a 34 year old that can’t get fit?as a manager tats a poor decision but financially (warbos old job was in that sector) it’s an even worse decision.maybe that’s why he’s now not a banker or a manager.

Seen critcs of Ben Brereton out in force on some sites. Beyond me why. We are talking about a TEENAGER that is been asked to do the job of an experienced championship striker, playing up top on his own. BB is a long way from the finished article but he will get there for sure imo. Took massive responsability for the penalty and set up Lolley for a great winner. So I would say to the young man, well done keep giving your all for the club and ignore the critics because you have a big future at Forest. One bit of advice though Ben, cut out the diving, your better than that. U REDS.

Believable26 3Unbelievable

15 Apr 2018 14:06:40
For most of the time Ben's nearest link to other players is the 4 or 5 opposition defenders, with no sign of support from his own midfield. He has battled well for someone so young

Agree11 2Disagree

15 Apr 2018 17:22:47
And once he’s better than six goals a season he’ll be gone anyway ! That’s life as a lowly championship team I’m afraid !

Agree3 4Disagree

15 Apr 2018 17:26:14
If you watch his runs, Brereton makes some great runs and in a team with more quality midfielders with vision and better passing range he would get 5-10 one on one chances a game where as generally he get one or two if any! I think his confidence hasn’t always been there this season but yesterday he put in a great performance and hopefully will get confidence from that. Brereton has huge potential and I still believe if we can bring in the right players next season he could be a 20 goal a season striker for sure. It is out midfield that needs improving. We need a play maker and some more forward thinking box to box players.

Agree2 5Disagree

15 Apr 2018 21:57:23
Maybe Cashy could be his foil.Or even give Jorge the chance to step up next term. No need to fork out then. Those boys ARE Forest boys.!
