Armand Traore injured, Tyler walker not in squad at Bolton, clough warning the bench at Bolton and Mills not in the Barnsley team . Two words to say to AK. well done!


1.) 10 Mar 2018 21:38:58
The amazing thing is that there are Forest fans who still rate them? But then they are still in the Warbo camp?
I still think Wing Nut will come good for the money we paid once we have a competitive team next season?
Agreed well done AK

2.) 10 Mar 2018 22:16:13
Ear Ear !

3.) 10 Mar 2018 22:26:24
I with you on that Red. Still think Clough is a good player but never given a run of games under Warbo especially in the Tomlin/Dowell role.Another player Warbo used to like playing out of position.

4.) 10 Mar 2018 22:33:04
By wing nut you mean ZC ?

5.) 10 Mar 2018 22:57:09
Big ears will look better alongside a big noddy?😉

6.) 11 Mar 2018 01:08:28
Agree on Clough like many players he was played out of position dropped after times he played well and lost confidence under MW. Last season he was quality when he came in and scored some important goals if he can get come back in summer to a confident squad with better and wiser players and a good captain like Watson to help guide him he can still come good as is still young and if Tomlin doesn’t join us once Dowell leaves he could get his chance to shine next season in the number 10 role.
Still think Walker may have a future if he can put some muscle on as looked ok in the odd games but every season he has failed to improve since he first stepped up to first team it looks more like his level may be league 1/2 but still think we could give him another few seasons to see before writing him off completely. Mills was well past it and Traoure was inconsistent and trouble. Glad they are gone. Hope AK shifts a few more (Hobbs, Vaughan, Bouchalakis, Ward and Traoure permanently and even maybe McKay and Manchienne) in summer.

7.) 11 Mar 2018 01:49:52
Murphy 79?

8.) 11 Mar 2018 08:51:16
Bouchalakis ! I forgot about him! Yes bye mancienne for me too.

9.) 11 Mar 2018 12:36:27
Tyler Walker is the best finisher we have and would even be a good option today in my opinion (better than Murphy on current form).

If we can get £2M back for Clough great. Clough is decent but we need players capable of staying with us and growing if we are promoted and I doubt he is that level.

10.) 11 Mar 2018 17:42:40
Shame we didn't have sometrhing extra in attack. Vellios is NOT the answer. Sorry but it is the truth



10 Jan 2018 20:33:58
Dowell staying.
Good news ?


1.) 10 Jan 2018 20:49:03
If true yeah, could do with the extra talent and firepower for the remainder of the season if possible

2.) 10 Jan 2018 20:51:55
I'd say so yes. The few posters that complained He's keeping Clough out of the team may disagree but Sunday proved they can both start even though Clough looked lost on the left.

3.) 10 Jan 2018 20:58:49
What's the question?

4.) 10 Jan 2018 21:05:27
Imo great news but if he's not performing Clough and Osbourne can do his role as attacking midfielder probably Cashy as well. That,in my book,is good competition and should the lad on his toes!

5.) 10 Jan 2018 21:05:45
My question is Gazza does everyone think this is good news ? I know some think KD has limited progression of clough etc.

6.) 10 Jan 2018 21:45:41
As long as he learns that his team mates tend to play in the same colour as he does and not the oppositions colours.

7.) 10 Jan 2018 21:59:21
Clough not good enough at the mo.
Not seen him have a good game since he’s been here. Was the star at Bolton but out of his depth at Forest.

8.) 11 Jan 2018 01:43:36
Clough did ok on Sunday on left but he hasn’t played enough so his touch was heavy, give him some more game time to sharpen up. I think him and Dowell behind a striker (Brereton being my choice though Murphy too) can work but can always push Osbourn up to left attack and bring Bridcutt in. Good news we have Dowell for rest of season as he has movement and vision others don’t, Cash, Oz and Bridcutt are all work horses and rely on energy but Dowell pulls defends, creates space and plays clever balls that split defence and we don’t really have others who can do that as consistently or as well.

9.) 11 Jan 2018 07:38:40
Clough is an odd one, when I used to see him play for Bolton I was very impressed and believed he belonged at a higher level. However I've not got that opinion of him since he's been at Forest. He has had a good crack at the whip pre KD and didn't show too much. Hopefully he'll kick on under AK. I think it's a confidence thing with him, he really needs to back himself more.

10.) 11 Jan 2018 07:54:54
I don’t doubt that Kieran Dowell is a fantastic player with great technical ability but we have Zach Clough. Clough showed glimpses of what he could do on Sunday, drifting in from the wing and carrying the ball up the pitch. I’d say karanka needs to give clough a chance and if he doesn’t perform then we have Dowell to fall back on.

11.) 11 Jan 2018 10:38:32
Clough needs to do an Osborn: put on muscle, don't get pushed off the ball, increase pace and learn to tackle, and get back to help defenders. Then he might get into the starting XI.

12.) 11 Jan 2018 11:55:21
Osborn muscle?
You wouldn't want to bump into him down a dark alley? He could get trod on.
Seen more muscle on a chicken leg.😀😀😀

13.) 11 Jan 2018 11:53:35
Friends who are Everton fans want him back, I've told them he's not ready for the Prem. Finishing the season for us will give him a good grounding, getting on the bench and first team minutes at Everton is up to him. Looks like he is still 'growing up' to me and hopefully he plays even better for Forest, for the rest of the season.

14.) 11 Jan 2018 21:41:47
The simple reason for Clough not playing is in fact Kieron Dowell. He’s so good that he’s keeping another good player out of the team.

Clough scored four goals in about 12 appearances last season, assisted with a few too.

Great that we’ve got Dowelll unto the end of the season though. Lucky to have him.



21 Dec 2017 08:19:18
Is it definitely correct that we spent a combined 4m on Murphy and Darikwa?


1.) 21 Dec 2017 08:40:19
I thought it was 2m for Murphy and 1m for Darikwa 2star.

2.) 21 Dec 2017 11:05:40
must admit I thought they were both 2 mil

3.) 21 Dec 2017 11:22:18
More to the point was it money well spent ?
Is Darikwa better than Lichaj ?
Is Murphy 2m better than Vellios ,these are the players they were bought in to replace .
Personaly I think the fees plus no doubt top championship wagers could have been spent better !

4.) 21 Dec 2017 11:32:25
Red Fred is right, Darikwa was 1 mil.

5.) 21 Dec 2017 11:39:56
Thanks all.

6.) 21 Dec 2017 22:00:15
Only one of them is worth two pints of lager and a packet of crisps?



23 Jul 2017 20:47:10
So there is a chance others outwith of vald, Lica and perquis may leave the club? Any thoughts on who? I reckon Lam could still be dispensed with as could ward . I like ward but I'm not sure warbs is too bothered. I have a feeling we might still cash in on another - Osborn would generate a tidy enough sum.


1.) 23 Jul 2017 20:56:48
I think it will be at least January before we lose anymore star players.

2.) 23 Jul 2017 21:10:59
Not so sure about Ward because he is playing better than ever since the arrival of MW.
Osborne is a definite maybe but you might see an exit of a goalkeeper or two.

3.) 23 Jul 2017 22:45:23
Hope it's not BB. If it has to be one of the young stars I'd sooner see Osborn or cash go before worrall and BB. I think Grear strikers and centre halves are very valuable. I'm not under rating BO and MC but feel sure they'd be easy to replace.

4.) 24 Jul 2017 00:58:41
2star. You say you are not under rating them, but feel sure they would be easy to replace. I hate to see your feelings if you actually were under rating them then.

5.) 24 Jul 2017 06:57:33
I wouldn't mind losing Osbourn for the right price, he hasn't really developed like we expected I don't believe. I know people will point me to the stats of last season but stats aren't everything, he does more wrong than right.

6.) 24 Jul 2017 07:24:35
Easier than worrrel and Brereton it doesn't mean they aren't good players it just means in the hierarchy of preference of who I'd keep they aren't in the top two. I hope no one else goes but suspect they might if the noise about more incomings gets louder.

7.) 24 Jul 2017 09:18:52
2star. According to MW there more incomings, i'm hoping the current incumbents have more nouse than to listen to fans wanting more, and more signings or so called stella signings.

8.) 24 Jul 2017 09:20:41
Lam, Perquis, Luca, Stojkovic all need to go, sooner the better. Keep Ward, he's a good front utility player. If we get the Greek bloke, Bouchaklis. ? Then I reckon a CB and a LB will about sort us out.

9.) 24 Jul 2017 10:45:22
I think Hobbs has been told he can also find another club.

10.) 24 Jul 2017 11:09:23
What does that mean.? Have you seen it somewhere, or it is just what your opinion is. If you have seen it, where?

11.) 24 Jul 2017 22:41:35
I'm in utter disbelief there are people out there who don't see Osborne as one of our best players.

He's far superior technically that a lot of the squad and has such a high football IQ for a young player.

It's no accident that every manager we've had since he broke through has wanted to play him every game.

Ryan Sessegnon - now that’s what you call an academy product!


1.) 20 Apr 2018 22:26:25
Isn't he in the same England Team as Brereton?

2.) 20 Apr 2018 23:01:55
It's also something to do with Fulham having an exceptional manager who believes in his players young or old and plays the game as it was meant to be played.
Wolves and Fulham have proved you can be succesfull and entertain at the same time,Well done to those two managers for having the bottle to show that.



20 Apr 2018 22:09:01
What’s everyone’s view on Clough? Not sure he even made the bench last week? Did we pay 3 million for him?


1.) 20 Apr 2018 22:28:01
Too lightweight, easily knocked over, doesn't get back and tackle, no real pace. Only plays as attacking midfielder. Can create things but too much of a luxury.

2.) 20 Apr 2018 22:47:50
2 star when he arrived we didn't have a manager,he scored four goals in the last few games and helped us score safety and by and large looked the part.
He came back preseason and warbo started with him,but it wasn't happening and then Dowell came in and looked the part for a few months and he was left out,it happens.
He and walker should have done their homework and turned down Bolton,It's six foot plus giants for Parkinson they hardly fill that criteria.
The boy has talent and an eye for goal,but I doubt he'll get a chance.
It's pretty obvious we will sign seasoned pros,which is fine,but you have to have a blend of youth and experience,oherwise it's very pedestrian football.

3.) 21 Apr 2018 06:25:39
He is back at bolton I think

4.) 21 Apr 2018 08:38:02
He is nerja but he didn’t make their bench either.



17 Apr 2018 13:58:06
Apparently the chase for Peterborough’s latest starlet is hotting up.

Surely a decent figure plus Worral, Brereton and grant on loan for the season should swing it?

The amount of top players these guys produce we would surely be better providing links with Peterborough in a win win situation.

Can anyone tell me what we get from loaning players to the sadpies ? Other than the sat on the fence Nottingham fan watching county if they are doing well because it’s cheaper ? What is the point to that ? We need them getting 3000 a week and getting the sat on the fence fan to the city ground gates.

Far more intuitive to work with a club like Peterborough, hopefully the new Owner will see sense, make a business decision and ensure the sadpies get no more handouts from us.

The reality is we are competing for a fan base in a city that can’t really support two clubs. No room for niceities I’m afraid as we need 25k + a week if we want to progress.


1.) 17 Apr 2018 14:56:43
Just read Lee Wallace could have played his last game for Rangers. experienced left back. might be worth a punt guys???

2.) 17 Apr 2018 18:04:01
Not sure Rog never seen much of him mate. We defo need one though!

3.) 17 Apr 2018 18:08:54
We are going forwards not backwards signing Scots in the twilight of their careers who have spent half of their careers in the lower reaches of the Scottish leagues and cannot even make the international team?

4.) 17 Apr 2018 19:14:08
Ok,maybe "Barnes" Wallace. at least he could have "bombed" forward!!! 💣💣💣

5.) 17 Apr 2018 20:03:07
Or maybe Ian Wallace😁

6.) 17 Apr 2018 22:54:05
He could bring his mate Grommit as well!



15 Apr 2018 22:54:10
It’s an interesting question isn’t it , how better are the players we’ve brought in? Would someone have scored the goals that Lolley has ? Would we have got the points we needed ? What would warbo have done in Jan to addres the alarming slide ? Of course we will never know but it’s the most worried I’ve been since feb 93 when we were still bottom of the premier league and clough emerged each game looking like a radish with sun burn.


1.) 16 Apr 2018 12:24:13
But where does thinking like that end what if fawas didn't buy the club what if we still has Burke Britt and Antonio ect ect

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.

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 !

He shouldn’t be in the team this season. Warburton and Karanska both to blame. I can understand why fans get frustrated ; his goal record is bad. Agree with th Brazil comment , put him back there for a bit because he looks a different player under Brazil. We simply can’t keep playing him as our goal getter in such a crap team

Creepy / Carlo - fair comments by both of you . Warnock has always said his dream job was the Forest job. Inform one wish that dream would have become reality as we get ready to lament 20 years outside of the top flight. Very much doubt it would have been had Colin stepped into the seat of the man for whom he had such admiration . Colin , I hope you get the promotion you deserve . . you complete w*****!

I missed the last two home games holidays and illness. The highlights I watched show that forest could have won both games easily with Brereton having a good quantity of chances that in the future will see him the right side of the woodwork. The highlights might be biased - I can’t comment on that but it’s difficult to fully embrace all of the views about football we play. We create enough chances to win games - and would if those chances were taken. Let’s give he man a preseason before we put the crusade to undermine Karanka into over drive. He might be as bad as the rest, but what I’m lobbying for is to not be expecting top six football after 3 months. Karanaka will play abrigjt game that’s his style for sure . In this league on limited means there isn’t really a better option.

Neil Warnock is a fantastic championship manager whose ‘temporary tactics’ have served many clubs well. Football is about winning Doc and Warnocks a winner. Let’s be honest, bullying and intimidating football by the opposition i is often mentioned on here as a reason for our undoing. Maybe the problem lies somewhere else. Warnock is a winner with an enviable record of success, give the guy a break he’s been a good servant to the game. The only manager, in recent times, whose moved us away from being relegation fodder, deployed similar tactics and nullified those tactics by others - I think that also tells you something.
