According to reports in Greece ansarifad is on his way to us just been waiting for international clearance apparently has had his contract terminated so he can join us.


1.) 02 Sep 2018 22:58:30
Hope so. We need another option.

2.) 02 Sep 2018 23:15:24
He is still an olympiakos player according to their website

3.) 02 Sep 2018 23:30:08
Hope not as it will look like a very dodgy deal and will do nothing to enhance marinakis profile.
Rules are rules and nothing good will come out of bending them,only trouble.

4.) 02 Sep 2018 23:50:56
is it just me but i'd rather give gomis a go next to murphy or grabban?

5.) 03 Sep 2018 01:22:55
Wikipedia is not cast iron by any means but he is down as a Forest player for the rest of the season on loan. Goal scoring record not bad but questionable opposition. I suppose you can only beat what is in front of you. it must be squeeky bum time for Karanka.

6.) 03 Sep 2018 11:03:40
Any one can change something on wiki so take no notice of that

7.) 03 Sep 2018 21:28:06
Anyone think Dias might be worth a go playing off Murphy or Grabban? He looks a bit tied down on the wing but seems to have something about him. He has pace, good feet and can take a man on. Not as lightweight as the other 2 Portuguese either. I know it was only a friendly against average opposition but the goal he scored running from the halfway line suggests he could offer something running at defences and give an option running in behind the back 4. I guess I'm hoping he could be used a little bit like Lucas Moura is at Spurs although obviously he's not at that level. Just a thought.

8.) 03 Sep 2018 23:52:24
The rules say you can cancel a players contract which is why Emitimovis on his way.

The Greeks have just signed Toure who was released by Man City so they have cancelled a couple of contracts to fund the move.

Nothing wrong with lining up the departing players with some options to smooth the way.

The question to answer. Is Karanka making all the player signing decisions or the owner?

Beware of Greeks bearing gifts? Just saying!

9.) 04 Sep 2018 09:42:11
Redinexile Is that you preparing the ground just incase Aitor can not turn things around in time. 🤣

10.) 04 Sep 2018 10:11:53
Stag you bet it is😁

11.) 04 Sep 2018 17:08:52
There is no ground to prepare. If AK does not win matches this season he will be sacked!

I'm defending him on the basis he should be judged on the teams progress this season having assembled a new squad not hung by the mob and blamed for last seasons results and sorting the the mess of previous regimes!

No useful purpose is served by fickle fans taking delight by dancing on the grave before the victim is dead and buried? You might fall in the hole instead!

Greeks bearing gifts has proved as successful as playing Scotsmen in the Championship.

That's just a simple fact.

12.) 04 Sep 2018 17:46:32
If fickle fans fall in the hole their landing will be a happy one as it means success for the team. If your zealous backing of Aitor is proven to be be unjustified then what.?

13.) 04 Sep 2018 17:56:50
So red are you now saying the Greeks are at fault and they are medling in karankas business?
Only asking.

14.) 04 Sep 2018 20:44:54
Stags, If you fall in the hole its because AK is still taking us forward and you are the one dead and buried!

Not blaming anyone for buying Greeks or Scots just stating facts. They are going to have to be very good to hit the ground running. The two targeted at least fill holes in the squad on paper.

AK has purchased the right types so far so let's see and not right players off after a couple of performances? Hopefully they have not been recycled to Forest just to fund Yaya Toure!

15.) 04 Sep 2018 21:43:25
We all want the team to move forward Redinexile, Aitor has said the players do not play as he has trained them, what use is that when it his neck on the line.



29 Aug 2018 00:32:31
Eddie Howe has said there's absolutely no chance that Defoe is leaving on lone so we can forget about that one.


1.) 29 Aug 2018 07:33:59
Thank god for that 😁

2.) 29 Aug 2018 09:32:38
Hopefully Pulis says the same about Gestade. Goals to games ratio is pants

3.) 29 Aug 2018 10:43:06
I think I'd rather see our academy youngster having a chance than any of the loan targets,their not exactly inspiring
Most of them couldn't hit a barn door with a banjo,Defoe looks about the only decent one and what's the point in a fox in the box when our service has been terrible

4.) 29 Aug 2018 11:58:30
Gestede is garbage, Oliveria not match fit for a few weeks but probably the best option, Abraham may as well bring his Smurfs!

5.) 29 Aug 2018 12:18:58
I'd be happy for Gomis and Appiah to be our subs until Jan if need be.

6.) 29 Aug 2018 12:31:07
We do not need another striker. Just drop one of the holding midfielders for an attacking midfielder. We just need to push right up and get people in on goal. Murphy soudani cash and guediora have goals in them, we are just to slow and ponderous at getting forward.

7.) 29 Aug 2018 14:29:13
Soudani already has a knee problem. If Murphy gets injured then none of our first choice three strikers are fit. Are you sure we don't need another striker?

Appiah and Gomis are ready to be dripped into the first team but they are not ready to shoulder the pressure of firing us to promotion.

8.) 29 Aug 2018 16:24:46
Hi Red Cyclist, have you ever seen Gomis play?
We have much better out on loan. Gomis would not get a game at Peterborough or Mansfield, so why is he worth a shot in the first team?

9.) 29 Aug 2018 17:40:41
Spot on Mr Pony,Cummings already looking good at the posh,everyone thought the breadman knew nothing ;)

10.) 29 Aug 2018 17:51:24
Same again pit pony, the cycle of delusion continues about our academy players and the impact they can have on the championship.

11.) 29 Aug 2018 19:25:46
Don't think we'll sign anyone and Aitor Megson will live to regret selling Brereton! He'll score for fun at Blackburn

12.) 29 Aug 2018 21:54:22
Gomis is worth giving a few substitute appearances to - like Brereton would have had.

13.) 30 Aug 2018 16:50:51
If Murphy plays like he did last night and stays fit and Soudani too plus Grabban finds form we will be ok. I can see Cash, Lolley, Dias and Carvalho all chipping in with goals. The worry is fitness as none of them are spring chickens and if we had two or even all three injured at once we would have to give Appiah or Gomis runs and that ruined Brereton I think. He had so much pressure on Jim to score due to having to play cause we had no other options. Karanka has said Today however that if players don’t leave and train well they could be given a chance so maybe Vellios and Clough could still have a future if they applied themselves. The other option is putting Hef up front, he did play as striker for Huddersfield a few times.



22 Aug 2018 10:57:08
There's talk if Brereton leaves we may try and replace him with Defoe on loan I know he's 35 but I still knows where the back of the net is he's deadly in front of goal.


1.) 22 Aug 2018 11:02:51
Someone said before, he still needs the right service.

2.) 22 Aug 2018 11:19:56
That was me stags

3.) 22 Aug 2018 12:18:21
Trouble is our style is creates a Dead Sea for our strikers !

4.) 22 Aug 2018 14:44:44
What makes you think Defoe will come on loan?

5.) 22 Aug 2018 17:51:47
Murphy and Defoe let's go!!! 👴👴👴



19 Aug 2018 20:57:26
Just been reading an article on Brereton Nixon states forest are now willing to let him go to Blackburn and the only thing that's holding up things is the sell on clause if he was to reach his potential and move to a bigger club it will be a loan till January then a permenant deal don't no what everyone else thinks but I don't think we should be looking to sell season long loan deal would be better but not to look to sell him now he's only 19 and he will get better any thoughts?


1.) 19 Aug 2018 22:21:28
Loan to a rival in same league. . crazy. Tell them to give us a call in the new year.

2.) 19 Aug 2018 22:23:58
Season long loan with 1m loan fee.

3.) 20 Aug 2018 09:13:00
Madness. This lad could be our future. What’s he done wrong to be exciled. It makes me sick to the bottom of my stomach. I’ve been optimistic and kept an open mind but I’m starting to swing towards Skegsjay and FF79. Some of Krankies selections, formations and tactics are questionable and not working but he’ll keep playing Grabban who is like a slug and doesn’t look interested and the £13m splashed out doesn’t look like a wise purchase at the mo, he ain’t no Reuben Neves.

4.) 20 Aug 2018 10:11:49
You can get medication for things like that TAP.

5.) 20 Aug 2018 11:33:42
In fairness carvalho has played quite well imo, always looks for a key pass and can dribble to not to mention his work rate.
He just needs a bit more time to adapt and then I’m sure the goals and assists will start rolling in

6.) 20 Aug 2018 12:12:37
I watched Brereton very closely at the end of last season when he was playing ever game and though he didn’t score his runs were good and he improved and scored a few good goals in the last few games. Forest shouldn’t sell him. I am not convinced by Grabban or Murphy and both are older and won’t be around for more than a few more seasons. Loaning Brereton might help him but in my eyes he could be our 30 goal striker within 2-4 seasons if he continues his growth. Personally I would be playing him at the moment as think with lads like Carvalho and Dias etc around him and team in high spirits he would get goals.

7.) 20 Aug 2018 15:51:05
What if this was the plan from the start?maybe karanka was told that in order for funds to be made available one young lad would have to go.
What baffles me is that brereton is apparently going to be the dogs dangly bits yet it’s only Blackburn that are after him,you would of thought other clubs would be fighting for him?

8.) 20 Aug 2018 16:17:29
Sutton_Red85 sadly I think the 9 goals in 57 games means no one is going to clammer for his signature.

And I think that RedRascal has made a very good point but again will he make the grade?

9.) 20 Aug 2018 21:57:06
It's not the strikers,it's the tactics,
Grabban scored for fun most of his career at this level and so did Murphy,brereton won't score many eitherplaying karankas way.
Look at WBA they have rodregueze and have signed Gayle,but they play both together,answer is goals.

Karanka is too stubborn and set in his ways than to play with two strikers hence not many goals.
He's in charge though so we'll just gave to hope the midfield score the goals and get a few from the rotated strikers.



18 Aug 2018 23:01:14
Matty cash must start every game he is brilliant bags of energy strength and pace he must be our most improved player in the last year he works so hard aswell he never stops running.


1.) 19 Aug 2018 00:19:08
The first player i recall coming back from a lengthy injury who is better than before.

2.) 19 Aug 2018 00:18:46
Why must he? Football is a 14 man game and if AK thinks he is better as an impact player at this stage in his development then so be it. So far he has never dominanted a game for 90 mins so maybe AK knows best?

3.) 19 Aug 2018 09:32:49
Play the players who are in form. Cash and Soudani are in form.

4.) 19 Aug 2018 11:30:29
Being Portuguese appears to equal being in form. Wake up Aitor , playing these guys over the likes of cash appears to be an egotistical move rather than one that is right for the club.

5.) 19 Aug 2018 11:52:30
Never dominated 90 mins he scores first goal early on , makes the second in the dying minutes , always making runs throughout game . No way he's not an impact sub for me , just becoming an impact player 🤗

Not only that the away seats do not even face the pitch you are sat facing the buses on Elland Road at the end of the main stand.
Still you get a good view of the corner flag!
I'll be sitting in the East Stand in my kevlar vest. Must remember to be polite and respectful when the goals go in ? Unless of course we get 7!



25 Sep 2018 11:54:12
So I just rang the ticket office to buy a Blackburn ticket. they tell me u can only buy them online but it's changing for the middlesbourgh game . They also tell me that the reason Its changing is because it hasn't gone very well . They have really shot themselves in the foot with this one no wonder the away attendence hasn't been great for the last few away games.


1.) 25 Sep 2018 13:27:32
You try something, it fails & you take steps to rectify it quickly.

2.) 26 Sep 2018 09:33:34
If you think that's bad we bought five tickets for the last cup game against Newcastle and one wouldn't work, no refund had to go and buy another.
Only a tenner but still a farce trying to get some sense out of anyone, other than a shrug of the shoulders.

1.) 19 Sep 2018 10:38:48
Dias will start at home. Take Cash out, & possibly Colback for Yacob.

2.) 19 Sep 2018 17:38:56







16 Sep 2018 15:37:57
Right I'm seeing a lot of criticism against grabban honest opinion he's far from a bad striker it's not like he's getting great service from midfield and getting 3 or 4 chances a game. our midfield need to start supporting him when we are attacking the problem lies with karanka with his negative approach to games setting his team's up not to lose rather than going to win games even home games he sets up the exact same way we could have Messi up front and he would find goals hard to come by in this team I hate to say this but we are not going anywhere with this manager unless he opens up abit which I can't see happening I just can't see where the goals are coming from . we have the players to flourish in this laeuge but it seems there not getting the chance to they can't all be bad players.


1.) 16 Sep 2018 18:24:39
Good points forest fan.
We have a proven goal yet he's alone with no service.
What I don't understand is why ak purchased him as lone striker?
Karankas arrogance hinders the team.
He's worse than Warburton.
He's too scared to lose even if it means we draw games.

2.) 16 Sep 2018 18:47:09
With some of you who are fans no wonder he’s scared of losing.if you lot were in charge of the club we would have a new manager every 6games.

3.) 16 Sep 2018 18:59:43
Pot kettle.
You cudn't wait to get rid of Warburton remember?
So your no different other than you can't see through your karanka glasses.🤔

4.) 16 Sep 2018 19:04:00
And if it was left to you we’d be in league one now

5.) 16 Sep 2018 20:33:37
How’s that 2star I wanted warburton out which kept us up?if it was upto ff and skeg we would be in league 1

6.) 16 Sep 2018 20:56:46
Thanks for saving us single handedly Sutton,just think we were mid table and in so much trouble,how can I thank you,your the saviour of our club,if it wasn't for you,karanka wouldn't have been in charge,
Thank you,Thank you so much.🤣🤣🤣🤣

7.) 16 Sep 2018 21:13:07
Sutton Utter bull.
Put yourself in Mr.marinakis's shoes.
You say to your employee this. I want the team to get promoted. No ifs. no buts. I'll invest a substantial amount of cash for you to buy players but if you fail you will lose your job.
Krankie agrees and tries to emulate wolves but at this point in fails miserably.
What would do?
Stick will someone who seems out of his depth and panic buys or bite the bullet to recover from the damage done by Krankie and get shot?
If something is broken do you fix it or let work until it's completely destroyed.
Mr.marinakis won't suffer this for much longer.
He's used to getting what he wants if it means saving face and his investment the inevitable will happen.
Karanka isn't the one to take up forest.

8.) 16 Sep 2018 22:08:04
Sutton apologies - quite right you did , I got you confused with another poster.



15 Sep 2018 19:15:22
Happy with a point away from home however I don't see us scoring enough goals to challenge for the play offs and the manager will never change the formation so mid table this season I reckon.


1.) 15 Sep 2018 20:04:48
Mid table won’t be enough for Marinakis, last seasons squad was good enough for mid table we’ve surely improved our chances with all the investment? Hopefully we can get it together and win the next two games, it will be a good month if we do.

2.) 15 Sep 2018 21:30:28
I would just like to know where the goals are coming from to take us up the table you know goals win you games just saying we had plenty of chances today defence a lot better and there should be plenty of goals in this team we have the players

3.) 15 Sep 2018 21:52:43
7 games into the new season and the defence seems sorted despite the Byram set back. Just need GrabOne to get going before Game 10 to silence the doubters. Ossie in tomorrow for extra shooting practice.
Onward and Upward

4.) 15 Sep 2018 22:23:35
Or 27 games and still no further forward on delivering an attacking threat despite spending 20+ million on attached . I know red, I sound like a broken record don’t I!

5.) 15 Sep 2018 22:27:50
Not really 2star not seen anything exciting myself since the Newcastle and West brom game mind you was never going to be exciting with karanka a very poor mourhinio

6.) 15 Sep 2018 22:48:44
why weren't it going to be exciting ?
manager has bought 3 Portuguese flare players plus Soudani, plus Iranian striker on way.
All the other new blood too, should raise hope unless your an eternal pessimist.
As for Mourhinio, would you really want such a mardy ,arrogant sulk at our club ?

7.) 15 Sep 2018 22:51:59
Easy to blame the striker, bottom line is they don't get chances.
Today defensively and pressing higher up the pitch,it was a good away performance.
The problem is there's not enough pace to counter attack and hurt the opposition,mainly down to playing two holding midfielders imo.
So all I see is tight games.
Be nice to ditch one of the holders for home games.

8.) 15 Sep 2018 23:09:22
79 hope you had plenty of red wine and a good day nobody could blame a striker playing up front for Karanka the goals in his teams come from midfield he has the players but he's not using them right he reminds me of Dougie and montanair rolled into one be very surprised if we get anything from the pigs in the week

9.) 15 Sep 2018 23:09:38
Would be great to play some one out and out wide to give defence an option to play the ball out and not invite pressure and to create some attacking potential.

10.) 16 Sep 2018 00:45:50
Mardy, arrogant, sulk at our club?? No way is there enough people to come on here and be at the club?? 🤣

11.) 16 Sep 2018 06:08:04
they may have dominated the game. but if you don't put away your chances,then you need someone who knows how to put the ball in the net.either karanka changes to 2 up front or pack is bags and go.

12.) 16 Sep 2018 09:53:29
Huddersfield went up scoring only (was it) 58 goals.they got into the playoffs and even got to the final and won it without scoring a single goal in the playoff games and the final.

13.) 16 Sep 2018 11:08:18
Very rare you'll get away with though Sutton.
We were never going to score yesterday,despite having the bulk of possession.

14.) 16 Sep 2018 12:43:23
Ff Osborn kicked one straight at the goalkeeper, and sliced another had any of our other forward players had those chances at least one would have been put away.

15.) 16 Sep 2018 14:28:20
I don't blame Osbourne for the misses. Nine out of ten times he would have put those away. Seemed over anxious to me and my only criticism of him was regarding the last chance as a low hard ball across the goal would have made a better opportunity. Still cannot understand why Soudani is not in the side. Grabban is struggling with this set up perhaps Soudani getting a start might be the way. Who knows.

16.) 16 Sep 2018 15:06:15
Soudani is injured.
Only half chances in my opinion for Osborn,.Not clear cut chances we created,most players just thos,if it had been along the ground he'd have scored.
This is the problem in general though there is not many goal scorers in that side.

17.) 16 Sep 2018 15:20:46
Mickn Both Soudani and Murphy are carrying slight injuries. Like you said on another day Osborn might have put them away. Ff was saying we never looked like scoring so in my opinion he is wrong as Osborn had 2 good chances.

18.) 16 Sep 2018 16:37:13
Ff if you view all of the teams chances at best half chances does that mean a clear cut chance in your opinion is no opposition outfield players around their box with their goalkeeper standing to one side waving the attacking player on to score. 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁

19.) 16 Sep 2018 20:17:31
The thing is, Osbourne got himself in to those attacking positions and wasnt afraid to have a shot. Some players bottle it and take a simple pass option so fair play to him.On another day . .

It's not true it's all aload of rubbish someone made the rumour up on Twitter then admitted it was rubbish yet people on other forest groups are believing it and still talking about it it's not true
