Fawaz is trying to buy Charlton


1.) 12 Sep 2018 22:47:46
Knowing our luck he'll be succesfull and get them to the prem,🙄🙄

2.) 12 Sep 2018 23:26:25
Which one, bobby or jackie?

3.) 13 Sep 2018 00:08:29
I hope this isn’t true

4.) 13 Sep 2018 00:23:54
He shouldn’t be allowed to buy a bag of crisps in this country let alone another football club

5.) 13 Sep 2018 01:04:18
Why are you getting worried?

6.) 13 Sep 2018 07:36:11
For footballs sake (ffs) and would you want another set of fans to go through that?

7.) 13 Sep 2018 09:09:37
Usmanov-think that's how it's spell it is apparently interested in Charlton,can't see fawaw passing another fit and proper owner test.

8.) 13 Sep 2018 09:22:37
New job for King Billy on the cards😆

9.) 13 Sep 2018 13:21:59
Why is he coming back ,3rd time lucky!

10.) 13 Sep 2018 16:17:54
The Forest club shop has just had a major sales windfall. Fawaz and his Bank Balance were spotted sneaking out the service bay with boxes of Fawaz sponsored Forest shirts bound for The Valley as part payment for the club!



10 Aug 2018 22:59:13
Hopefully Karanka has seen that Darikwa and Benny are the weak links at full back in the first two outings. If we are to improve them it is surely ta ta benny and ta ta darikwa


1.) 11 Aug 2018 01:01:15
Weak link if any has been not been capatilising on our chances and dominance. Darikwa i agree has been our worst player, hesitant and gives the ball away. But benny is solid as he is always. Say ta ta to our player of the season last season have a word.

2.) 11 Aug 2018 04:38:14
Dont get why you are so down on Osborn. Terrific little player wherever he plays.

3.) 11 Aug 2018 07:51:32
Benny is no leftback. Always gives it his all but falls over too much and makes poor decisions. He was runing back to the goal line instead of attacking the danger when wba scored. Darikwa just not a rightback either. When you play 3 5 2 you might get away with these 2 but in a back four not a chance. Why is Robinson not playing???.

4.) 11 Aug 2018 08:15:37
Spot on Rutland, Osborn puts in a shift but he isn't a left back, he runs round like a little terrier snapping at people's heals but all to often gets found out of position. Is the old debate around, what position is his position? Most people will say attacking mid but as you will see as the season goes on when the Portuguese lads start to gel, he ain't much good at that either. Work rate 110%, substance very much lacking.

5.) 11 Aug 2018 08:46:47
Shows how dreadful we were last season for Osborn to win player of the season. Excellent point made about not taking chances. however , all successful teams need to also defend narrow leads which we are incapable of doing. I’m not sure what game you are watching if you can’t see That Osborn and darikwa are the weak links at full back, which doesn’t make Osborn a bad player by the way , it just means he’s no fullback. Whether there is a place for hi. In the team elsewhere nowadays is a seperate debate altogether. Like Brereton and Worral we may find benny is only going to be third choice this season.

6.) 11 Aug 2018 11:24:23
Not sure all the criticism of the full backs is warranted to be honest after just two games against two sides that have the potential to finish in the top 6 all players need a number of games under their belt before they hit top form

7.) 11 Aug 2018 12:09:28
Redmarsh - he played at lb for much of last season and he hasn't adapted to the position through the summer, still the same frailties.

8.) 11 Aug 2018 14:05:56
Far too much nonsense has been going on over the last 2-3 years regarding Benny. He's one of our best players, but I guess these people just don't want to give up.

9.) 11 Aug 2018 14:46:15
Well bsered this will be the season where both veiws are put to the sword - we really will find out if Osborn is the player we think he is now we have some better ones than before .



07 Aug 2018 22:29:49
Get rid of lolley, darikwa and Osborn and we’ve got a team. Shows how far we’ve come for lolley to look so poor. Some of the old frailties still there.


1.) 08 Aug 2018 00:34:31
What are you talking about lol that was a fantastic performance from everyone

2.) 08 Aug 2018 06:18:05
Lolly one of our better players, find it strange you would say that and Osborne has linked up very well with the Portuguese lads. In fact everybody seems to have raised their game. I wanted to get rid of Guedioura last season, look at him now!

3.) 08 Aug 2018 06:36:50
Lolley was fantastic, he just looked like he was lacking confidence in front of goal. I can understand however why AK wants another right back, he gave the ball away a lot. He's good on the counter attack but that's about it.

4.) 08 Aug 2018 06:55:52
Lolley played well. Agree about the right back though.

5.) 08 Aug 2018 07:37:30
Seriously need new right back! Why we let lichaj go and keep him is beyond me, good overall performance let down by darikwa. Gave the ball away to many times and can't make a decision when on the ball also afraid to take players on

6.) 08 Aug 2018 08:12:25
Our full backs looked like our weakest areas but we covered well. Darikwa just seemed to lose his head and composure.

7.) 08 Aug 2018 08:48:57
To me Darikwa just looks really nervous when the ball comes to him, and it makes me nervous watching him. I feel like he's going to give the ball away every time he gets it.

8.) 08 Aug 2018 09:01:20
I have to say I was very impressed with the performance last night,the result was unfair on us.
When was the last time forest played football with intent?
The results will come if we continue to play like that :)

9.) 08 Aug 2018 11:17:59
Spot on 2star. Those 2 as fullbacks simply woefull

10.) 08 Aug 2018 14:26:16
We showed signs of improvement over last season nice to see players able to dribble the ball movement looked after only problem is same problem as last year can't defend crosses and scoring goals we had enough chance to be 3 up by half him

11.) 08 Aug 2018 15:05:09
Byram will be our right back soon and Robinson will be left back if karanka continues with 4 at back. If not then back 3 of Dawson fig fox

12.) 08 Aug 2018 20:55:36
Lolley lacked the ability to be effective in the final third four times last night . Caught in 3 minds and failed to make the right call in very strong positions.



13 Jun 2018 23:11:54
Outgoings absolutely inevitable to fund the incomings.
Osborn, Worrall, clough, Walker grant, McKay, vellios, Cummings will all be sacrificed - maybe more.

I think we will keep Brereton and Yates


1.) 14 Jun 2018 07:22:12
All be sacrificed?? 😂 I don’t generally like to knock players but that’s no great loss??? I would like to have seen more of Clough though

2.) 14 Jun 2018 08:11:57
Keep Worrall to learn from Dawson and AK,sell the rest imo

3.) 14 Jun 2018 08:50:59
Want to see more of Cummings and why get rid of Grant? He was brilliant at Notts and hasn't had a chance yet!

4.) 14 Jun 2018 09:52:03
I would like to keep Osborn and Worrall as well as Brereton and Yates. The others can go as soon as!!

5.) 14 Jun 2018 12:37:26
Worrall is a must keep!

Everything a C half should be and a future England captain. No brainer because he can step in at any point and do a very solid job.He always puts his body on the line and fights for the team.

How many of our young homegrown players can you say that about?

Osbourne, Worrall, cash and that's about it currently.

Certainly not BB! If we got a 10 million offer for BB I'd take it in a heartbeat. Don't think there is much chance of that happening after squandering his chances last season and learning the art of playing at swan lake.

I'd try to hang on to those three and strip the rest to bare bones to pay for the incoming new first team.

Be ruthless and get rid of the young players who have been out on loan perhaps with the exception of Walker who looks lively and has great ties to the club.
Grant not good enough! Would think about keeping Yates if he shows massive progress in pre season.
This season is about getting to the Prem and we need to go all out with all resources or we will fail!

We know who the good players are!

Smith (back up)

Watson (just about)

Guediora if he can recapture his form because let's not forget he'd been out for about 2 years prior to rejoining.
Looked nothing like the player of old but I think he deserves a chance because of his passion and physicality. He knows how to control a game late on.

And that's about it apart from a few squad players.

That's 11 players so we need another 11 to be top three material.

We need two strikers!
Two wingers
A left back
Two centre midfield
A first choice goalkeeper

As far as I'm concerned the rest of the players can leave or be prepared to fight for a chance on the bench.

Sell Mance, Murphy, Darikwa, Mckay, Brereton, Traore, Vellios, Clough, Cummings.

I make that about 18 million if you get 10M for Brereton.

Loan out or release Ward, Kapino, Evtimov, Henderson, Fuentes, Bouch, Lam, Ariyibi.
With the exception of Ward (who I really like) they have been proven not good enough.

6.) 14 Jun 2018 13:18:24
And before I get called out for saying Lichaj is good please remember that "good" does not mean skilful?

Good, to me, is a player who consistently performs to a high level everytime he is picked, no matter if they have been playing regularly or not.

If they are a good pro and fabulous ambassador then they should be cherished not shown the door.

Tomlin is a good player but I wouldn't sign him. Why? Because you just don't know what you're going to get. Level of performance should not depend on the mood he turns up in or how many pies got smashed in the pub with the lads.

All I know is that there is nothing wrong with the clubs money on wage day! Why should the players performance be any less consistent?

7.) 14 Jun 2018 13:45:05
Anything else you'd like to add no22😦

8.) 14 Jun 2018 14:14:43
Agree with that no 22 tomlin has got an attitude problem.
Plus a pie and chips one

9.) 14 Jun 2018 17:11:57
How do we know what any players attitude is like?

10.) 14 Jun 2018 17:12:30
Hope we don't sign any more players with an altitude problem😲

11.) 14 Jun 2018 18:57:22
His attitude is I'm great and don't need to work on fitness???
It shows if you watch.

12.) 14 Jun 2018 19:42:44
10 million for brereton?? Ha ha what, rupees?

13.) 14 Jun 2018 21:41:42
Karanka rates him so get used to watching him.

14.) 14 Jun 2018 23:04:02
Our best players were fat lads who had no issues with their fitness despite their build.As for attitude they all had a winning attitude which raised everyone else's game!



10 Mar 2018 18:42:29
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 Nov 2018 18:50:29
I thought that was an excellent performance , I know some might not agree but we are getting stronger every week and I think we are edging towards knowing our strongest team too. Only works class goal keeping denyed is today. Well done Butland.


1.) 10 Nov 2018 20:26:49
I agree, I thought we looked solid and were unlucky not to get the three points, considering Stoke spent 50m this summer they didn’t look any better for it. When Yacob came on it allowed the full backs to get further forward and we looked more of a threat, things can only get better.

2.) 10 Nov 2018 21:19:52
We had more attacks and shots when Yacob came on than in the rest of the match with Guediora there.

3.) 10 Nov 2018 22:07:55
Bsered, defo I was shouting all match to take geddy off for yacob. Yacob and jack can play together. Love Geddy but he’s lost the plot a bit I reckon.

4.) 11 Nov 2018 01:16:01
Agreed 2star, Butland on fire. Grabban will be disappointed he didn't take one of those chances but that's football.

5.) 11 Nov 2018 09:38:10
MOM Darikwa today showing just why Eric was not up to the job.

Pairing Yacoub with Colback enables the full backs to press forward more showing us what Burnley fans liked about Darikwa going forward. Doing this earlier would have stopped us getting sucked into a stalemate in the middle of the park.

Cannot pair these 2 every week as sometimes we need more height in the middle of the park so hopefully the Greek lad will get a go as Geddy like Watson is off the boil.



06 Nov 2018 21:33:54
Two more for Tyler


1.) 06 Nov 2018 22:28:12
Impressive stats and think the lads got something, he won't get a chance here though.

2.) 07 Nov 2018 06:44:47
He's at his level

3.) 07 Nov 2018 06:49:46
You never know FF. if he does well this season and then goes into league one and does well he might get his chance. Pleased for him in any case

4.) 07 Nov 2018 09:18:42
Be nice if he did get a chance grant scored a bucket load for Notts didn't get a look in

5.) 07 Nov 2018 10:23:53
Is grant now with luton on loan hows he doing ?

6.) 07 Nov 2018 09:53:16
Maybe our academy is not up to producing top class players. They seem to do well in League 1 and 2?

7.) 07 Nov 2018 11:26:48
Walker is at his level.not good enough for this league,proved that by what he did at Bolton.league 1 player at very not having a go at him and there’s nothing wrong with being a league 1 player.

8.) 07 Nov 2018 12:42:21
It’s better than most of us could do. Still a forest player though so nice to see him playing well and enjoying his football. I share the view that we generally seem to procure lads that are great a lower levels. Perhaps this is because every youngster that looks the part is hoovered by the big clubs who have 100’s in their academy. Another example perhaps of where wealth is ruining the game. Perhaps the FA should restrict how many players go into an academy to give accadmeies like ours a chance to snare some of them.

9.) 07 Nov 2018 15:24:57
The FA would need to miraculously sprout something from their nether regions where they are currently deviod!

10.) 07 Nov 2018 16:34:32
Unless the coaching at academy level just ain't up to par which I doubt ,managers are under to much pressure to produce that prob why our young lads don't get a good chance

11.) 07 Nov 2018 16:56:00
Hope Tyler helps Mansfield to promotion, better there than with the bitter lot across the river and their attention seeking chairman

12.) 07 Nov 2018 18:53:44
Stevie, love it mate - man after my own heart. Hope they get relegated and hope the stags put six past them .

13.) 07 Nov 2018 19:20:16
2star of course it’s better than what most of us could do but then again we havnt been training day in day out for 7years.
There’s nothing wrong with being a lower than championship player.



04 Nov 2018 10:20:50
A lot being said about the atmosphere in the ground , to be fair it’s not the best.
Remember the days when we had a song for every player ? There is a distinct lack of creativity from our terraces.

Some of it is embarrassing, singing you’ll never work again to every set of fans who live north of the East Midlands is frankly embarrassing, out dated and shows a serious lack of knowledge of current affairs.


1.) 04 Nov 2018 10:38:16
2star yes mate because they never shout scabs at us do they

2.) 04 Nov 2018 17:44:25
That particular part of Nottingham history is fascinating, sadly most are ignorant to the political backdrop. Let's not raise to the bait, 2 wrongs don't make a right.

3.) 04 Nov 2018 20:36:38
Scouse I am fully aware of the political backdrop but don’t intend to argue the toss on a football site

4.) 04 Nov 2018 20:49:57
Always think it's sad that it's the same old chant,makes you feel ashamed to be associated with them,sad thing is they are mainly old and still chanting the rubbish that sir Brian asked them not to.

No different from going to Spain and sitting in a bar and having to listen to every expletive known to man and walking out in disgust,when you just would like to educate them.

Be nice to see our owners put a slogan on the pitch saying no swearing "gentlemen" please.
After all we are bringing a new generation to the city ground and I for one would prefer my grandchildren not to ask what they are singing or even worst start singing it

5.) 04 Nov 2018 23:15:02
2star Spot on I've been banging on about this for ages.

It's very evident when you go away and sit in the home end just how much more noise and support other fans give their team when things are no going their way.

The Forest away support is great but you can feel the tension and grumbling at home the minute the tempo drops. AK got slaughtered on here for raising the issue but in my book the home fans need to show the same endeavour and support the lads show on the pitch even when they struggle if we are ever going to be successful instead of sitting back a moaning we are not playing champagne football which only comes having played winning football and a trophy or 2?

6.) 04 Nov 2018 23:38:51
Even more worrying have seen a few incidents between ‘fans’ before a few games this season more than in recent years , saw it yesterday, before wba game and 1or2 other games this season p

Smith , will be put in the shop window, same as walker, grant, lacovitti and Brereton he will fall short of the standard needed if we want to be top ten rather than bottom six. Cash defo good enough, Worrall most likely, Yates - not seen enough of him so I can’t comment, the rest of that crop aren’t good enough. If they were they’d be playing now.

Time to look to the next crop instead now - Appiah, Gomis etc.

But flapping at crosses. Smith is a fantastic shot stopper and I’d be surprised if anyone disputed that Carlo. There is more to being a top class keeper than shot shot stopping . To do well we need a top class keeper and I don’t think we’ve got one at the club at the moment.

FF, I agree with you, he pushes the ball into the danger area far too often , too slow to get down. Smith is equally as suspect in other ways. De vries, Darlow and camp were all miles better than what we’ve had for several season now. I think we’d have 4 more points on the board now with a good solid and reliable keeper. Smith ain’t the answer though pal.
