Got to love Joe Worrall forest thru and thru stating he is not going anyway just yet at least. The lad speaks with such enthuism and dedication for his luv of our great club it brings a tear to your eye. In today's money bags, I only want to play for the top clubs in England or Europe it's nice to see sum passion for a club unfancied at this moment in time.

The boy has the ability to be a great captain for the reds and dare I say it he has the makings of being a great leader and defender as my all time hero PSYCHO . I luv reading his interviews and hope he scores the winner tmoro. Things are looking up for us boys and girls, very early days I know but it's nice to have positivity long may it continue.

Hopefully it's not empty words. We hear it time and time again about how much players love the club they're at but then just turn out to be another footballing mercenary. Hope Worrall's not the same.

2.) 27 Jan 2018 22:28:45
Agreed and ic mancienne is improving its thanks to Joe😃😃😃



07 Jan 2018 20:57:48
Massive respect to Mr Brazil what a legend. Forest through and through, does as he's asked, never really in the limelight but today thoroughly deserves his spot in the world media and a place in the history books. Imagine the joy at nurturing Brereton then giving him his debut, but to nurture, what was it 6 of that phenomenal team today and manage and lead the line as Forest manager , wow wat a moment for him. Got to be the proudest moment of his career and off he'll toddle, quitely into the background to uncover some more gems. Well done Mr Brazil you should take all the plaudits my hat raised to you sir !.

Hear hear absolutely spot on Cloughie. GB is the rock upon which our team is based and long may he continue in his role bringing on the next generation.

Maybe we should appoint him the Cup Manager and just hire a guy to manage the Championship matches?

2.) 07 Jan 2018 21:45:53
Great post, fully agree.👏

3.) 08 Jan 2018 02:39:55
Great all round tonight and us getting past the gunners prob means we'll be an even better when getting the manager we want hoping this time round it's going to be for a while not just a few months

4.) 08 Jan 2018 14:34:16
I like the way he’s handled himself and the situation on the TV. Seems to have something sensible and interesting to say unlike the standard tosh that many trot out. I’d give him a go as manager. He may get offers from others if we don’t.



23 Oct 2017 01:06:15
Forest need to pull their fingers out of their arses and give lichaj that contract, he's stated he's happy here, loves the club and so does his family. He was immense on saturday throwing his body in the way of shots at goal putting his head in where it hurts, marauding forward in attack best defender we've got. Also put hobbsy back in with worrall , mancienne looking a bit flimsy at the moment play four at the back and work the rest of the formation around that. 442 at least in home games. We need start getting a more regular 11 instead of chop changing a more settled 11 get too know each other better and get more experience in game time. can't stand this play one player one week then replace him the next, no good boys and girls.

Clough is god

1.) 23 Oct 2017 03:20:34
Totally agree clough. Absolute outrage at the way eric has been treated. I used to think he lacked something as a defender but when you compare his mobility tenacity and passion, coupled with his intesity in the tackle to what is in the rest of the warburtkn squad it beggars belief. I also have been saying that mancienne is weak, chasing shadows and lacks power and desire for a central defender.

2.) 23 Oct 2017 07:22:13
He was player of the season last year and if he gets a good run in the team, he'll be player of the season again this year. Different class to Darikwa. But it seems Warbo has his favourites and I can't see that contract coming any time soon.

3.) 23 Oct 2017 09:40:45
So is Darikwa injured?

No he is as rested for the last 2 games by our manager.

Am I missing something or did Mark Warburton pick Lichaj for the last 2 games?

We now have 2 very good options at right back. I hope Lichaj stays and again I am sure I have heard Mark Warburton state the club want him to stay.

Lichaj is actually a better full back now because Mark Warburton is encouraging him to get forward more.

4.) 23 Oct 2017 10:33:39
Wishey the point is that eric should never have been 2nd to dawrikwa and players like velios cold shouldered for youth with potential. But its warburtons choice and he will survive or founder on HIS decisions

5.) 23 Oct 2017 10:56:43
I know the point being made I just don’t agree.

There is a disturbing trend on these pages of making out that Mark Warburton does not know what he is doing. That trend has been seen only too often in recent years and ends with a call for the Chairman to sack the manager.

Darikwa is a good full back who as with Players like Carayol and Vellios before him he needs time to settle into the club. If god forbid Eric gets injured before Saturday, we will be glad we have Darikwa.

I could even make a case for playing both Lichaj and Darikwa on the right.

Our mixture of young home grown talent and astute signing has us with the strongest squad in a long time.

If I was a manager with an eye for man management I would be praising Darikwa after his replacement has just been rightly voted man of the match.

As I said earlier something is motivating Lichaj to play out of his skin. In our present mood of manager bashing we don’t want to think that Mark Warburton has anything to do with making Lichaj a better player.

6.) 23 Oct 2017 11:26:18
Good post wishey,many valid points

7.) 23 Oct 2017 12:32:15
I think Lichaj missed the start of the season because of the USA qualifiers and was a bit behind everyone else.

If he carries on playing like he did on Sat and remains injury free then I would expect him to be no.1 for that position but people will be rested when were playing 3 games in 8 days.

8.) 23 Oct 2017 12:44:45
I agree to disagree here wishey. Warburton is being bashed for valid reasons. I think most want him to succeed, me included but he has made some strange decisions. That is his perogative. But as this is a great forum for fans to have their say its fair to say that warbs leaves himself wide open for fair criticism. I won't bore you with the list but he is a strange one. Btw i think darikwa had a knock so watbs was forced to make the change.

9.) 23 Oct 2017 13:21:30
It is most definitely a forum for opinions. Although the mighty Ed does have a powerful role in that.

Mark Warburton took over a team that escaped relegation on goal difference. Eric Lichaj was very much part of that team. He iwas rightly named player of the season. Did we need another right back? Yes we did. Was Lichaj dropped at the beginning of the season, no he was not. He came back from international duties and was behind others in pre season preparation.

Praising Darikwa after Eric’s performance on Saturday was a brilliant piece of man management. Keeping the players who are not in the team is key to our future success.

The purchase of Darikwa has made Eric a better player.

The character assassination of managers is insipid. It starts by dropping his Christian name, then we get the derogatory nickname like ‘the breadman’ We also get posts from the so called ‘come in peace Rangers fans’

Mark Warburton is a very intelligent man. He is trying to turn a crippled club around. He is trying to play football and he is giving younger players a chance. He can only pick 11 in the team and 18 in the squad. We are never all going to agree with his selections, it’s about opinions. But it is time our supported trusted someone and stopped talking the man and his team down.

10.) 23 Oct 2017 13:56:09
Well said whishey,bit of patience is required.

11.) 23 Oct 2017 14:31:17
Great passion wishey good points, i think mainly you are right. Sold to me so the slate is clean bring on hull😃😃😃

12.) 23 Oct 2017 20:32:57
Give eric a place each time and a new contract.
Please breadman listen to us you know it makes sense.

13.) 23 Oct 2017 20:36:11
Wishey please enlighten, do you think warburton knows what he's doing?
Lichaj is one of best players and wears his heart on sleave and never misses a beat.
I feel he played out of his skin for 2 reasons; to show the manager he is and should be first choice and 2nd because he plays for passion and for his club.

Does warburton utilise the best players at his disposal and in the players natural position?

Does his passing the ball from the back really work? forest are not Barcelona and only a handful of players in the squad have the skill set to do this.
Also do you agree on squad rotation each week?

I appreciate team members get injured etc but to solidify and gel a team cohesion is needed. As the old saying goes too many chefs spoil the broth!

14.) 23 Oct 2017 21:54:21
Not my place to enlighten anyone!

I give my opinion and I am glad Mark Warburton is our manager.

I am glad he is trying to play football from the back, yes! If only a handful of players are happy playing football, then we have the wrong players. I suspect that we have more players happy to pass the ball than you think. Mark Warburton has had one transfer window to change a side that stayed up on goal difference. And our top goal scorer left in that window and made it clear he wanted the move.

I am glad he has a squad and not just 11 first team players. I have also made it clear that at times part of our problem is that some fans are part of the problem.

Good Clubs and teams are built, which is harder to do than it seems on Xbox

15.) 23 Oct 2017 23:01:30
Your on fire today whishey.
Some great points.

16.) 24 Oct 2017 10:57:56
I think the football is absolute garbage to watch like really really painful. It would be great to see how much of the possession we get is in our own half and how quickly we Surrender possession in final third. What I see is loads of tippy tappy in our own half and the ball is given away as soon as we progress forward in many cases. That said though I absolute agree with the statement above that he’s had one window to sort out this mess give it time. As long as we are no where near the relegation zone I’m happy to watch us slowly progress

17.) 24 Oct 2017 12:33:22
Some good points wishey.
Every team has a squad but a regular
Team with regular players in my opinion is needed.
As some people think i want Warburton
Gone this is incorrect.
I want him to succeed but some of decisions and tactics seem at times strange?
I don't need to reiterate my views again.
The eric situation needs addressing asap and his contract should of been sorted before he went to the states.
Forest need him to shore up our weak defence.



19 Jul 2017 17:02:19
So we bern linked with camerone jerome for 6 million apparently. Not the sort of striker with a lot of consistency over the years but again could just be lazy journalism.

Clough is god

1.) 19 Jul 2017 17:43:19
He is not worth the money. Things have gone quiet on possible incoming transfers.

2.) 19 Jul 2017 17:49:40
Norwich are getting rid because he's one of the highest earners why would we pay him stupid wages when we've just sold a good striker whom wanted better wages its paper talk we will be in for every tom dick and harry going.

3.) 19 Jul 2017 17:50:13
I hope not, 6 million is a lot for a 30 year old striker who is not a prolific goal scorer. I reckon Lewis Grabban could do a job for us, probably would be available on the cheap maybe even on loan like he was with Reading last season.

4.) 19 Jul 2017 18:07:55
Not worth 1m. 30 years old never done much.

5.) 19 Jul 2017 18:07:56
Please not grabban. He did nothing at Norwich nothing at Bournemouth on his return and nothing at reading on loan. I would be happy with Jerome but sounds expensive.

6.) 19 Jul 2017 18:31:01
Marco, how come Assombalonga was worth £15 million but a player that has played premier league football and scored more goals last season than Assombalonga is only worth £1 million?

7.) 19 Jul 2017 18:59:58
Because ba is 24 not 30, in striker terms 30 is getting on a bit.

8.) 19 Jul 2017 19:06:13
They want rid for a reason.

9.) 19 Jul 2017 19:15:43
Red James, how many goals did Zlatan score last year in the premiership? If 30 is getting on abit what do you class a 35yr old?

10.) 19 Jul 2017 20:27:33
You can't compare Zlatan with Jerome, won't matter anyway looks like Murphy is signing for 2 million at only 34 years young.



07 May 2017 21:51:34
At least fawaz has the decency to apologise for his time at the club and wish us all the best . He tried and wanted the best for us but it ended horribly wrong for him. So fair play for his apologies and thanks for trying I'm sure he meant well even if didn't seem like it sometimes. Think we need to draw a line under it now and hopefully look forward to a brighter better future.

Clough is god

1.) 07 May 2017 22:48:15
Agree. He wanted us to do well. He also wanted glory and cash. Not a cheap exercise and poorly executed but how many others have failed at premiership glory.

After today we are in no worse state and I will say thank you for a cracking bunch of young players who have been allowed a chance.

Frying pan fire is my only worry but hey. we go again.

2.) 08 May 2017 05:58:37
It is all very well saying sorry, but is he really.

He hired people then ignored their advice, he was not late paying bills every now and again but regularly.

He was not learning from his mistakes, what made it worse for me is how he thought we are all idiots, thinking we would believe his propaganda.

When you enter into a enterprise you know nothing about you employ people with goid standing in that field to both advise you, and help to run it along with you. He blatantly refused to do that.

So it is just another speech full of rhetoric.

3.) 08 May 2017 09:48:53
Even his apology was egotistical tho.

4.) 08 May 2017 11:24:57
Doesn't really matter now does it, he's as good as gone. Seasons over, some things to look forward to.

5.) 08 May 2017 13:47:05
Well said 'Clough is God' Totally agree, he thought he could probably run the club just like his previous club in Kuwait without realizing the enormity of the club and the English game.

I for one am looking forward to a half time Donner next season.

6.) 08 May 2017 20:27:52
I know let's horse whip him through crowded streets C.

7.) 08 May 2017 21:42:35
Another brilliant article in yesterday's Observer by Forest fan and chief sports writer Daniel Taylor on the debacle that is FAH s ownership of our famous club, with similar pieces on the fall of Blackburn and Birmingham obviously penned before the last relegation spot was decided. Recommended "Lest we forget" who's fault this all is!

8.) 09 May 2017 14:48:47
Hey at least Fawaz bought his cheaper balls from Asda and did not line Mike Ashley's pockets with Sports Diect gear. Credit where it's due. #fawazout.

I hope our sinking ship can stay afloat but with years of rust and barnacles chipping away at it I fear the worst. At the moment I think there's only 1 man who could turn it around and he's lay to rest in the sky. After seeing we didn't have a shot at goal until near the end of the match a couple more disastrous results and we going to be right in the horse manure. It's painful and depressing being a forest fan and fair play to the 23, 000 hardy souls who turned up

Gud business in the end wat was it 3 or 4 permanents with the rest on loan. If sum of the loans don't work out then so be it they go bak to their respective clubs. Looks like the midfield has been tightened up only one defender mind but if a gud partnership with Worrall is built up and lichaj on the right that's a gud start. Shame bout Dawson gud experienced pro coming thru the academy he could have built quite a gud relationship with Worrall who would gain masses of experience from that, still never mind it is wat it is.As Dawson has stated he wanted to go don't be surprised to see him come on a free in the summer. Gud business by AK, has shown the rest of the squad that he ain't mucking about, shape up or ship out. Now let's see sum steadying of the ship and crack on next season, well done AK

With so many apparent players coming in it makes you wonder wat team we will have playing in a few games time. I hope it doesn't impact on the young potential we have but at the same time the amount of games and pressure on them they'll be burnt out b4 there 20 so May be sitting bak and learning from more experienced players will help them progress better. Some of the other more experienced players bought in by warbo if not up for the fight my find themselves gone in the summer. Some interesting names mentioned especially Dawson I think even at 34 will help mold Worrall into a fine young defender.

Murphys record not that great 60 odd goals in 200 games. Maybe he's more of a feeder to the front man. Maybe he's like kevin campbell ian wright said he liked playing with campbell because he got in the way of defenders allowing wrighty space to run in and score. To be honest if we get a striker would like to see someone at least capable of scoring 15 odd goals in the championship.

Totally agree but can also understand the frustrations at the moment may be not the booing but again people pay gud money to support forest so are entitled to their opinions. I think we will be ok and AK can be a half decent manager but my frustrations come from just being woeful season after season new man out new man out, umpteen loan players sum of whom I forgot even played for us. In fact it's been such a long-time since we been In the prem it would be a massive shock and rebuilding process. Gone are the days of Roy, Collymore and co, best forest team in a long time, best side to watch on sky too.

Again harsh on Osbourn the lads ran himself ragged for the forest shirt. I'd still rest him for a few games to recharge same for Worrall harsh analysis hasn't had a break in summer being involved with England again I'd rest him a few games. Think we just need to slowly plod this season out hopefully we can pick up a couple wins in next 5 or 6 games just to get to 40 plus points. Games running out though thankfully Burton and Sunderland are garbage and won't get many more points so it could be third spot up for grabs again let's hope we not involved yet again don't think the ticker can take much more.

Mental mate we need the basis of at least 7 or 8 players to start gelling together chopping and changing so often when we are blatantly so piss poor is only going to spell trouble and for peat sake play 2 up front at home even if velios and Brereton or Murphy and Brereton, ply numerous crosses into the box and try and score goals. No goal at home since mid December is a crisis. We are such a joke at the moment its unbearable things got to change quickly or we going to be picking up the pieces in league 1 and we know how long it took us last time. In fact if it wasn't for Doncasters spectacular collapse in the last ten games we may well still be there so please lads start picking up a couple wins here and there just so we stay in this division. We are a long way off even contemplating pushing top 6 in the championship a major rethink is needed in the summer and i don't mean change of manager don't think I could take it again. Forest hired AK now need to stick by their convictions whether we like it or not, consistency breeds confidence, confidence earns you points lucky or otherwise. i'd rather 11 triers than 11 can't be bothered egotistical this is not working so I'll sulk like a baby players. Let's hope AK has acquired one or two decent additions.
