25 million for a club like ours which is running at a loss, has no real assets and no structure still seems an awful lot of money. Fawaz thinks it's worth double that? Whose mad? Is it fawaz, is it the yanks for spending so much time and effort on a gamble that the selller might just crumble and give it away at the last minute or is it the fans who think the club is something that any sane businessman would buy at 50 mill? I'd suggest it's all three of the above?

It's a gamble but run the club right and we could be worth a hell of a lot more. just think with fawaz gone we will have the 10k back that are staying away whilst he's in charge bringing more money in. get Nigel clough or rowatt in and we will never lose another game and be promoted first season which again brings even more money in! simple

Lets take it on dragons den see if peter jones will invest

Nffc is a brand, and as one of only 5 English clubs to be. European champions, then yes, worth 50 mill. Famous throughout the world, and that, you can't buy. Well you can, but you know what I mean!


4.) 14 Jan 2017 19:42:28
what crystal ball you been using?


5.) 14 Jan 2017 22:31:49
None of the championship clubs make money unless they have parachute payments. The difference is a prem team costs 150M and a champ team can get brought for sub 30M. Get it right. get paid.

Our attraction is we have history and fan base. but no ground. We are in this melee every year until we either go up or down. Same as 16 of the other teams. Championship teams lose money. They operate on negative equity. Like it or not Fawaz has helped us exist. JJM would have just been the next one to spin us for another 5 years.

ive been told Rhodes is going Wigan on the final day of the window? Info from a big scouse fan with good links around the nw

2tone

1.) No you just read the rumour yesterday. Wigan may however have the cash to buy him after the sale of young midfielder James McCarthy.


2.) Forest rumours

{Ed034's Note - this is a forest rumour as fans on here have been talking about him. If any fan doesn't like the rumour being posted, ignore it and move on to the next


3.) If i'd seen that rumour yesterday why would I just post it again? As I said in the op I was told this by a lpool fan who has good links around the north west.


4.) And its the same Liverpool fan who told me that I wouldn't be able to understand carragher on tv! So he us 100% correct with his info so far this season :-)

{Ed034's Note - he is awful


5.) Not according to Blackburn MD who says they will not sell to Wigan. Its going to be an interesting week to see who we get and who goes. If we could sell a few Rhodes could be affordable with the financial rules.


6.) He has a terrible tv voice which seems to get higher and higher the more animated he gets! Knows his stuff though and says it how it is

Keeno


7.) Wigan have signed Grant Holt - why would they need another?

Can osbourne and Cummings teach the England players how to score from corners? Its a simple plan and only needs a bit of help from the opposition but at the minute that tactic has a 100% success rate πŸ˜‚.

Surely Ward,must be close to a return???


4.) 03 Sep 2017 17:48:26
I thought Ward was in Hospitals.😁


5.) 03 Sep 2017 20:49:36
Burton in January transfer window probably. 22 or 24 man squad?
Just saying.


6.) 04 Sep 2017 09:59:17
Understand your point Fighter pilot and I'm a big fan of Zac Clough but hopefully Zac will raise his game and thrive on the competition for places a talent like Dowell brings.
If we played a 4-1-4-1 formation we could play both with Bridcutt holding,McKay and Osborn/Carayol out wide.

first international break I've been looking forward to - maybe because I'm off to Malta with the lads for the England game. Any other red uns going? 🍻⚽️.

2tone have a good one and a few beers for me mate

Enjoy mate.
Can't afford it still saving up my money for an assault rifle and body armour for Russia.


3.) 30 Aug 2017 22:20:08
We'll definitely sink a few beers skeggy πŸ‘ - 79 you'll need to save a bit more cash, I'd be looking for an armoured vehicle not just body armour πŸ€”

I think they're all out here in Florida 2tone, reduns galore over here at the minute. helping my case persuade my oldest that he really needs to end his flirtation with Chelsea once and for all and join the red army 100%. (To be fair to the lad he does have a forest season ticket) perhaps when we've turned Chelsea over that'll be that?

Velios to Leeds? Just a thought to bank a few quid for a cb or an addition in January? I rate him but it looks like mw isn't too impressed.

2tone

1.) 22 Aug 2017 20:20:16
wont see him tomorrow because he's playing tonight u23s

Great start to the season, sounds like we gave them a few good chances though? Gk isn't the problem - sounds like he played well COYRs.

2tone

1.) 04 Aug 2017 21:54:00
More than a few good chanced 2tone.
We were battered from pillar to post and were second best all over the park. Back four absolutely woeful. Against a more clinical team the scoreline would have been an embarassment.
Like you say though, great start to the season lol.


2.) 04 Aug 2017 22:13:53
That's the get out of jail card played .
Said it before you can't play Osborn and clough in same side.
Add two more dwarfs in McKay and Vaughan and it spells trouble.
McKay was superb and fully justified man of match, class act as was Dowell.
Need an enforcer in midfield or we in big trouble.
Could and should have been 3 nil down before we scored, better sides won't be so kind.
Just being honest fully expect thumbs down in abundance but anyone who thinks we're dark horses need to get a grip.
That midfield will get destroyed by good sides and makes the defence look bad as well.
Hope breadman has learnt from that performance, plus side three points.


3.) 04 Aug 2017 22:32:43
Great win, as I said an new CB NOW! . let's hope for a vast improvement.


4.) 04 Aug 2017 22:55:45
Red Fred the doubter as usual 3 points will do us sign of a good team winning 1-0. When the other team had more chances it will only install confidence and you look how many great teams go through the season winning like that just a young squad and still getting it together onwards and upwards.


5.) 04 Aug 2017 23:01:49
Assombalonga will run riot unless we improve massively. That said Millwall will surprise a few and we won't get bullied and harried as bad as that too many times. We looked better on the occasions we went direct sorry but we just ain't got the players for that tippy tappy stuff with traore looking like he had a mistake in him every time he got the ball.


6.) 04 Aug 2017 23:20:33
Got to agree with you red fred, I think we are all going to find this a long frustrating season if we keep trying to play out from the back we need to mix that up, a bit to predictable at times, we have found osborn replacement in dowell I can't see him starting against Brentford.


7.) 04 Aug 2017 23:37:38
The assassin willl always run riot 2star whoever he plays for and good look to him but we have plenty of players who can score for us it doesn't make a team one player we have the best team we've had for ages and our problem in the past as been winning at home keeping a clean sheet and losing against the underdogs we always play well against a better side fact so happy with 3 points tonight and I predict 5 games going into the season we will total 15. Points you reds.


8.) 04 Aug 2017 23:14:48
Red Fred - I was checking the online coverage and to be honest it was pretty poor but it certainly sounded like the cross bar and gk saved us. First game of the season and 3 points in the bag so it's another beer for me 🍻And MW gets a few more days to deal with a few issues.


9.) 05 Aug 2017 00:10:56
Let's hope he can sort out those issues fast 2tone. Enjoy your holiday in Malta.

But what's he mean by long term? 2,3,4 or 5 years?? 2 seasons is a long time in football and if anyone thinks cc is likely to be playing consistently in two years time they're barmy- basically he is talking common sense/reality.

99 - not sure what you mean by that post but I fail to see how the original deal wasn't a good deal for all parties. Although he hasn't played much i'm sure he will have improved as a player and as a person - look at the quality we've recently signed with a much smaller amount of cash???

Good reply Rutland- going back to after match interviews I can honestly say I hate them all, I just want honesty and there’s not many manager who have the balls to just say it as it is - the most honest I can think of is Sean dyche. He must have had a good upbringing-kettering roots that must have been helped on their way by a football genius (BC)

Scary thought ed but I think you're right. It can't keep ticking over like this and huge problems will be seen by lots of clubs in the future. I've seen two clubs that mean a lot to me crumble but luckily they have both managed to come back- up the poppies and the eagles- that's kettering and Bedford town if you don't know πŸ‘

{Ed001's Note - fingers crossed they survive, but it is going to get harder. Not just are the big clubs all looking to bugger off, but the modern day kid is going to grow up with a mobile phone glued to their hands watching highlights of the 'big clubs' and playing FIFA rather than going out and playing footie or watching their local team.}
