Didn't Sam Byram play up at Leeds when he wanted a big money move?
I'd personally drop any interest in him as it seems more about money than anything.
Think he'll be trouble


1.) 10 Aug 2018 06:17:11
FF if that's the do we need a player with a bad attitude?
I'd say no.

2.) 10 Aug 2018 07:18:50
Wonder if forest do there home work on players like clough and taylor did they would follow players around looking at there life style drinking habits etc i think they don't nowdays just thinking !!

3.) 10 Aug 2018 15:57:03
Must be a quiet day if were just making stuff up about people now, quality.

Hope he comes as will be a strong addition.

4.) 10 Aug 2018 16:09:28
Its clear we didn't want him on a perm just yet. We are looking at a loan with a view to buy. They were hoping to get rid before the deadline (thats why they dropped boro's name in to pressure us) We will get him on loan, he wants to come to us!

5.) 10 Aug 2018 18:44:50
Why do you all instantly think it's about the players demands?

West Ham have blown over £100m in transfers and listed the players they wanted rid of which included Byram. They seem very good at paying over the odds and need to recoup as much of the cash as possible.

West Ham would have been hanging out to the last minute for a big fee we will have made our bid and clearly no one else came in to top it.

AK has clearly got the player on side to do the loan deal so this should go through probably with an option to buy unless West Ham are still playing silly beggars over a fee?

6.) 10 Aug 2018 18:46:52
I now see that Sam Byram was at the City Ground yesterday waiting for West Ham to sanction a permanent move. As predicted they were looking for top dollar and Forest did not bite so a loan deal will now get done.

Just shows it's not always the player "being greedy" AK had done his homework and the guy wants to come. Get your knives out to Mistress Brady and her 2 minders instead!

7.) 10 Aug 2018 19:14:54
Once again showing that we will not be dictated to.



28 Jul 2018 21:32:25
I find it interesting that there are any negative comments after today's game, especially if you were there.
It only showed positives all over the pitch , the likes I've not seen in a long time.
I know it was only a friendly, but the shape and the back four looking solid and the Portuguese lads dovetailing in midfield, it's all looking good.


1.) 28 Jul 2018 22:33:04
Completely agree besides Murphy lol

2.) 28 Jul 2018 23:26:08
Only negative from today was I thought I’d leave it until last minute to buy a ticket and didn’t manage to get in to ground until 20 minutes into the first half.
Had a season ticket 20 years but had to give it up last year.
I’ve witnessed some right sh*te over the years but there is a clear identity and intent from this lot. Can’t see how anyone could be critical from that display.
I’m looking forward to a great season.

3.) 28 Jul 2018 23:38:38
i think you meant aren't and the second line of your post answers the top line. it was a good performance by a club that as been transformed from top too bottom. coyr

4.) 29 Jul 2018 11:44:25
Was that really danny Fox alongside Dawson?? He was outstanding, and overall a encouraging team performance, just read a Bournemouth blogger who said they were in control of the game, did I miss something??

5.) 29 Jul 2018 17:09:07
Lol bournemouth were never in control of anything. I was there we were outstanding all over the park and didn't let them play their possession game because we were always in their face and gave them no time. I don't know why everyone is hating on murphy i thought he played ok yesterday he made some good run, flicked a few balls on and held it up ok. We know he's not the best striker in the world but ge did his job and opened up space gor the danger men. So all in all it was the perfect performance going in to the 1st game of the season. COYR

6.) 29 Jul 2018 18:01:38
I was there too mate that’s why I couldn’t believe what he wrote

7.) 29 Jul 2018 18:04:28
i was there yesterday mightyreds and what u say is spot on but some fans will find a target no matter wot. and if we won 2 0 every week some would pick on the one that hit the post even though they are red through and through. its a sad way of looking at the whole picture but in some cases not justified.

8.) 30 Jul 2018 00:36:53
Yes mate, some people just moan for the sake of moaning lol i just feel sorry for them people that they always have to have some negativity in their lives



16 Jul 2018 21:58:34
Looks like Lee tomlin is heading our way ??
Surprise, surprise was always going to happen.
Can't see were he'd fit in with all these young quick fit players,not a good idea imo.


1.) 16 Jul 2018 22:59:42
And where have you got this from ? Karanka has said he wants a RB and a DM. Would be paying a lot of money for a player who'd start on the bench

2.) 16 Jul 2018 23:09:06
You need quality on the bench aswell as the starting eleven will be a good addition

3.) 16 Jul 2018 23:49:24
Well he's changed his mind and going for an LT. He thinks there very reliable?? 🤔🤔🤔

4.) 16 Jul 2018 23:17:33
Tomlin will fit in perfectly as he will have fast legs around him responding to his quick brain and like Reidy will be the older head pulling the strings of the young bucks at the sharp end of the pitch!

The Ringmaster directing all the class acts around the pitch. He will score doublr figures if he lands.

I do wish people would stop being so negative especially given the dross we have had to put up with in recent years.

The futures bright the futures Forest so smile!


5.) 17 Jul 2018 01:13:38
Welcome addition for me if it happens.Karanka will probably rotate the midfield and forwards quite often especially when we have midweek games.We have the pace and runners now,totally agree RIE.

6.) 17 Jul 2018 02:16:44
Probably another loan otherwise he would be at Forest already? Premier League wages could be slowing the move up.

7.) 17 Jul 2018 04:28:03
Red some people can never pleased I'm afraid.
Certain individuals will find flaws no matter what even when things are looking good.
It's called Victor Meldrew Syndrome AKA "I DON'T BELIEVE IT".

8.) 17 Jul 2018 07:52:03
Life would be boring if we all agreed?
Interesting your comparing him to someone in a circus red??🤔🤔

9.) 17 Jul 2018 08:53:50
"No it bloody well wouldn't Matey!!" 👴👴👴😂😂😂

10.) 17 Jul 2018 08:54:18
It keeps saying he's free to leave Cardiff Have they terminated his contract. If he's free we should snap him up.
It's a long season and not all these Portuguese players will last. Get tomlin byram mings colbeck all on loan
Win win

11.) 17 Jul 2018 10:06:52
Ra, i think you will find that means he has been told he is not wanted by Cardiff, not they will let him go for nothing.

12.) 17 Jul 2018 11:22:59
Warnock has told him to do one.
He misunderstood what Warnock meant when he told him to go to "weight watchers" and has spent the last six weeks in McDonald's.
Seeing him with a mcflurry in his hand was the final straw.😂😂😂

13.) 17 Jul 2018 12:28:47
"I'm loving it" 🍔🍔🍔😂😂😂

14.) 17 Jul 2018 12:32:52
Ff. He probably thinks Warnock was clowning 🤡 around when he told him to do one.

15.) 17 Jul 2018 14:19:23
I wonder why KFC ran out of chicken

16.) 17 Jul 2018 16:45:56
and being negative all the time is exciting FF?

lol, attention seeking again:)

17.) 17 Jul 2018 18:22:05
Whose negative??
Certainly seem to of got your attention,🤣🤣🤣

18.) 17 Jul 2018 20:50:22
Football is a circus hence the comparison? The only difference is that most of the clowns are usually found in the audience!

19.) 17 Jul 2018 22:38:57
I thought football was the beautiful game.



23 Jun 2018 23:48:52
If we sign one more midfieder? I give up.
It's obvious we have problems up front and left and now right back?
Ask yourself this question ?
With no striker other than Ben?
But with 15 midfielders, how are we going to succeed?.


1.) 24 Jun 2018 00:50:52
I personally think Bererton will not feature as much in the new season, i read somewhere that the £13m player can play up front as well as in midfield. We keep being told that it is not until the beginning of July before players contracts change,or finish so if the manager is looking for a proven striker, or strikers then it makes sense that the manager will wait till then, although enquiries we will be ongoing. Players coming in could depend on their clubs finding replacements first. The players that the manager does not want will struggle to get the same wages elsewhere so most will dig their heels in, in the hope we will pay them off then find a new club rapidly.

2.) 24 Jun 2018 07:51:40
Wow some fans will literally moan about anything. How about you wait for the transfer window to close first to see how balanced the team is?

3.) 24 Jun 2018 07:53:31
Calm down Ff. 6 weeks until the season starts and as the latest signing has shown things can move quite quickly. I hadn't heard any links with Dias until Friday and he signed last night. So the same could happen with more incoming players and outgoing players. As mentioned above by Win at all costs contracts don't expire until Friday so we, along with other clubs, could be waiting until then to announce or approach any free agents.

4.) 24 Jun 2018 08:47:05
FF patience. 🕺🕺🕺

5.) 24 Jun 2018 10:43:12
F79 hear what your saying but that's how karanka sets is team up he wins his games from the midfield he's not bothered about prolific goalscorers mind you I'm getting a bit worried about the left back vacancy I thought that would of been out first signing goalkeeper near enough sorted with the 3 lads he's bought in from Portugal to assist a striker anybody up front who he buys should be bagging some goals and if not they will be let's hope this team gels quickly and karanka can manage better than last season get a few red wines down you today 79 and watch england win 6 nil lol I have my Stella chilling nicely in the fridge and my glass chilling in the freezer ready for my Bbq ureddsss

6.) 24 Jun 2018 13:18:15

7.) 24 Jun 2018 18:00:34
Said 6 f79 it could be more lol 🍷🍻

8.) 24 Jun 2018 18:58:06
Saving the rest for Belgium skeggs.
Nice to know we are through and can rest players against Belgium ???



07 Jun 2018 23:03:13
All this talk now of spending 50 million in this transfer window,
What's changed from last season and the open letter from Randall?
Hard decisions would have to made and even during the season when accounts were filed and major descrepences found.
How come suddenly we are trying to buy a prem place??
It's all a bit odd to me and slightly worrying that we seem to have owners that have ripped up their original script and gone off in a totally different direction??
Or a lot of this talk is just paper talk?


1.) 08 Jun 2018 03:49:53
Only time will tell.Personally I don't see us spending anything like that money but you never know.

2.) 08 Jun 2018 07:02:22
Forest representatives have told Peterborough and Jack Marriotts representatives that we're going to have a really good go at getting in to the Prem next season, so I'd suggest it is very much real. Like I've said before, why not, many other clubs who should be challenging are having to sell, let's take advantage of that.

3.) 08 Jun 2018 08:08:40
Didn't we post 35 mill profit on the last accounts I know a lot of it was a loan wiped off but it's still a plus in the right side of the books and nothing has been spent since then add on the increased revenue and the club being run better could be the reason for the spending

4.) 08 Jun 2018 08:27:13
13 mil for Carvalho and 6 mil for Marriott that's only 19 mil. I could see us spending another 10 maximum on that so nowhere near 50 mil on transfers. Plus any money from selling Kapinos, Mckay and any others (hopefully Mancienne to Rangers for over 1 mil)

5.) 08 Jun 2018 11:41:43
According to Barry Fry Marriott favours a move to forest but no bid has been put in as yet.

6.) 08 Jun 2018 11:42:40
It won't stop WBA Stoke Boro Swansea. The likes of Bristol and Preston and the Sheffield clubs will have settled sides and you always get the surprise team.
Far from an easy task I'd say

7.) 08 Jun 2018 11:45:00
32 mill but that's for the 2017 year ending so money has been spent and received since.
Marinakakis wrote off an historical debt of 40 million as part of his takeover but we owed fawaz 19 million which is being disputed.
It's not quite as simple as you are saying but we are heading the right way financially,but one big spend can change all that.

Window now closed and we still need to get eight players out on loan or pay them off.
Needs to be a priority over next few weeks.
Squad is too big and wage bill will not be sustainable.


1.) 09 Aug 2018 23:01:19
Ff are you going to have a whip round among your family, the club needs it if we pay the contracts up. 😁

2.) 09 Aug 2018 23:28:25
Stags thirty one yes thirty one first team players all on good wages is not sustainable.
It has to be dealt with and quick.
The only way you can keep that amount of players happy is to use a rotation system,but it very rarely works at this level.

3.) 10 Aug 2018 02:26:42
Ff i agree with you it is a lot of players but it is asking a lot to pay so many off. Look at the emoji i was being light hearted.

4.) 10 Aug 2018 08:26:38
I'm worried how much he is going to rotate with 22 man squad let alone 31 I know strength in depth is important but it can create other problems as well

5.) 10 Aug 2018 18:43:28
Calm down dears. The mini bus has been ordered to pick them up and drop them all off at Bolton, Rotherham and Barnsley!

6.) 10 Aug 2018 18:57:37
I thought northerners were supposed to like a bit a grit, nothing gritty about the deadwood. 😁



08 Aug 2018 14:44:04
I'm going to be honest guys I thought after last night performance everyone on here would be really happy with what they'd witnessed.
Didn't actually believe i would be seeing so many negative comments .
We will play far worst than that and win.
Not a time to pick on individual players,it's a time to get behind them and I certainly hope I witness many more games like that this season, three points on Saturday and all's well.

Yours sincerely Victor Meldrew🤩


1.) 08 Aug 2018 14:53:24
Lol 79 a positive from me 😆

2.) 08 Aug 2018 15:08:32
"I don't believe it"! The best post from Victor this Year?

Are you sure the excitement did not get the better of you?

Another 9 games like this and AK will be on his way. Back to Real Madrid and Skegs prediction will have come true!

🤣 🤣 🤣

3.) 08 Aug 2018 16:26:06
Just giving credit where it's due red.
Karanka will have to improve his win ratio before he'd ever get a gig like that.
Five wins from 23 games?
See your lot won 3nil last night.😁😁😁

4.) 08 Aug 2018 17:23:42
Lol red about as much chance as your man velios playing up front for them

5.) 08 Aug 2018 22:23:23
Thumbs up Victor m! 👍. I don't believe it.

6.) 08 Aug 2018 20:18:49
And there was I thinking you had both turned a corner? 🤔

Well my mate Karanka will be keeping your knives locked in the drawer this season and 28,748 other fans are vocally expressing the same view and also backing the golden oldies!
👨‍👨‍👧‍👦 👨‍👨‍👦‍👦 👨‍👨‍👧‍👧 👩‍👦 👩‍👧 👩‍👧‍👦 👩‍👦‍👦 👩‍👧‍👧 👨‍👦 👨‍👧 👨‍👧‍👦 👨‍👦‍👦 👨‍👧‍👧 v 👯‍♂️+ a few other lost 🐏

Going to be a very exciting season so plenty of time to get you both with the programme😁

As for my nearest team Boro its going to be interesting to see whether Mr Old School Pulis with his up and at them signings and selling of proper footballers is going to do a Warnock or whether football will prevail?🙃

I can always organise a good seat in the stands at the Riverside for you both for our visit if you want to join me for a football lesson?😱

7.) 08 Aug 2018 23:22:57
Nice to see you using your emojis red,you must be the only one who had to ask the edds were to find them,but at least your making up for being twenty years behind the rest of🤣🤣🤣

8.) 09 Aug 2018 06:21:49
Lol you should know me better by now I tell it as it is 2 games into the new season with 11 new players and some very good signings that no other manager in the past as been given I damn well expect them to play better than what we've been use to wether were the best team in the championship not sure on that middlesborough leeds are looking good at minute stoke and villa will be up there so we need to be consistent we have a great squad so we can rest players and still have good players on pitch which we have been missing for many seasons we've had 2 hard games against good teams and played good football and are unbeaten reading will be the one we drop points against teams we should be beating on paper then it will be another long season so far things are looking good but Mr karanka still as some way to go yet to convince me he his the chosen ☝so you will after excuse me if I'm not a ☝ fan yet like I said the next 8 games will tell us wetter the ☝will be 💪or be 🚮 till then bring on the next game and 3 points and first win 😆



07 Aug 2018 19:01:02
Four changes then?
Glad to see lolley and grabban in .


1.) 07 Aug 2018 19:10:54
What is the team ff

2.) 07 Aug 2018 19:14:09
Good line up with solid bench.
That's without cash bridgcutt worrell not even in squad
Byram still to sign aswel

3.) 07 Aug 2018 19:40:37
Aitor has said he is in no rush, that tells me Byram is either a back up choice or the club are not really bothered a out signing him.



06 Aug 2018 21:43:49
Will the surprise signing if it happens ?
Be Nelson oliviera?🤔


1.) 06 Aug 2018 23:00:22
Think it will be another striker 79 forestiera would be a good one

2.) 06 Aug 2018 23:33:18
I did think that myself 79. Wasn't even on the bench Saturday.Another one on Mendes books I think.
Would be a great signing.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 06:03:11
We can not get a right back in so i doubt the suggestion of a surprise signing will happen.



04 Aug 2018 15:16:28
Didn't take Tyler walker long to get a goal.
Well done he's one of our own.


1.) 04 Aug 2018 15:25:52
Let’s be honest if he can’t score in league 2 he ought to hang up his boots didn’t he?

2.) 04 Aug 2018 15:51:34
Don't forget he's playing with far poorer players 2 star, it's not just who he's playing against.

3.) 04 Aug 2018 16:16:27
Hope they sign him so that I never have bury my head again listening to the embarrassing ‘one of our own chant’ ever again .

4.) 04 Aug 2018 16:21:59
That’s his level.

5.) 04 Aug 2018 16:26:59
Should swap him for the lad who’s scored two for stags.

6.) 04 Aug 2018 17:43:58
Stags have said no"KHAN" do. 😄😄

Stag it's a cop out to think like you mate,it's a result industry and he hasn't been getting those results.
Plenty of managers take over a club and don't spend anything and turn it around.
Bristol won't be anywhere near the playoffs this time around they've lost their best players, but I expect WBA to be up there.
He's got two new teams now and i like the way we played and have said so,but we have to beat the likes of reading at home, it's as simple as that or Mendes will use his replacement,that's football.

Time for the talking to stop from karanka.
He needs to start winning games and fast,the bottom line is he's won just five of twenty three games for us,enjoyed every minute against WBA and they are a good side,but it's wins that are required, no excuses for not getting three points Saturday,anything less and the pressure will start to mount on him, confident he'll get the three points if we perform anywhere near the level we did Tuesday.

09 Aug 2018 10:39:21
Personally think we don't need him,karanka seems to have gone for quantity over quality in his defensive signings.
Prefer a quality right and left back to stop the crosses coming in in the first place

08 Aug 2018 23:34:24
Agree red, but is it because the squad is so big that when your in the side you want to impress too much??
He seemed to rush things but I just loved watching a very entertaining game of football and have watched back twice since and still enjoyed it.

Poor decision badly handled as we could of cashed in if karanka didn't fancy him as a first choice.
You don't loan out a player who attracted a 10 million bid and prefer a 350 k player instead.
Should have tahen the money.
