Fraser Forster would be a great addition in Jan?


1.) 10 Dec 2018 13:08:39
Would they sell,or would it be a loan.?

2.) 10 Dec 2018 13:59:44
Who cares, just get him in



30 Oct 2018 20:45:45
Very much looking like the 2nd string Forest team right now. Osborn is a poor LB. Priority in Jan has to be to get some competition for Robinson. Dawson is not, and has never been comfortable passing a ball out from the back. Fox and Figs are our strongest CBs to play AKs system. The game is calling out for Appiah.


1.) 30 Oct 2018 21:47:19
Players were extremely poor but krankie has to take the blame for this one. Too much confidence in mediocre players.
Steel 6
Janko 5
Dawson 2
Hefele 3
Osborn 3
Bridcutt 4
Watson 5
Cash 6
Goncalves 5
Dias 7
Soudani 4

Shocking performances.

2.) 31 Oct 2018 09:02:01
Gazza you thought Dawson was worse than hef ??

3.) 31 Oct 2018 09:16:19
Think that's kind to Janko, Steele and Watson.

Bit harsh on Osborn and Soudani who were played out of position.

But otherwise I'd agreed.

The root of the problem for me, is the lack of football for players who are not regular first team starters. As we don't seem to use the senior squad for U23 games, so they have no competitive football at all. and it shows!

Bridcutt, Soudani, Goncalves and Steele all looked really slow. Not over the ground but in the head, which you can expect when they are not playing for weeks.



12 Jul 2018 06:44:06
Reports in Portugal that we are looking to wrap up a deal for the Benfica keeper. Makes no sense to me. We have Pantillimon and Smith. On top of that, he's rated around 12mil.


1.) 12 Jul 2018 06:47:54
It would allow Smith to go on loan. Β£12 million could be payed over 4/5 years. Hopefully will anyway.

2.) 12 Jul 2018 12:20:51
Gazzared when I read that we were interested in Benfica goalkeeper at 13 million I thought 'has the world gone mad'
For goodness sake we've only just signed Pantillimon.

I agree with you , we have 5 goalkeepers now.
I therefore conclude that its just a load of media rubbish again as any player that appears available AK wants to sign them.

AK must laugh his socks off when he reads the'Forest must sign these players'columns.
However I tend to be more serious about what does not appear to have been picked up on.

Whats happened to the Peterborough pair have they disappeared off the face of the earth ?

3.) 12 Jul 2018 13:00:58
No they haven't humourist. Posh have over priced and over hyped them.

4.) 12 Jul 2018 14:39:37
We've got pants for keeper smith as back up.
Why spend possibly 13m on another keeper. Spend it on another midfielder left back right back.

5.) 12 Jul 2018 19:22:51
The chosen one will decide who he wants,😁😁

6.) 12 Jul 2018 19:29:46
Have to agree Red Always. don't see the logic!!! Another striker would be great. also never heard of the he geezer!!! πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

7.) 12 Jul 2018 19:51:38
Bet if his name was "Vileada" you'd have him rogie?
Guaranteed to mop up. πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

8.) 12 Jul 2018 20:21:27
Ps rogie the geezer lives in the pub somewhere down "soufff"πŸ˜‚



24 Jun 2018 08:26:40
8m bid for Bamford rejected by Middlesbrough. Really hope we don't offer more, massively over valued.


1.) 24 Jun 2018 08:46:18
He’s not worth Β£8 never 8Million. .we need to be going forwards not taking a step to sign an average striker.
Please krankie don’t do it!

2.) 24 Jun 2018 08:55:28
I totally agree not worth 8 mill. the sheep have slapped a 11 million price tag on vydra for an extra 3 million we should bid for him u no your going to get a lot of goals.

3.) 24 Jun 2018 10:22:28
You say he's not worth 8 mil and I agree it's crazy money BUT he is in today's market.Hendrick 10 mil, Richie 12 mil and they are midfielders and was ages ago. 8 mil is peanuts nowadays

4.) 24 Jun 2018 11:24:07
Half of the Britt fee so yes in perspective not a massive amount now a days, I just think as a club and fans we have fell behind the times and we still see 8 mill as a new english transfer record

5.) 24 Jun 2018 12:06:15
We could get Grabban and Soudani for that really hope we don’t get Bamford for that much

6.) 24 Jun 2018 12:48:49
Rich I think you might be surprised how much they will want for Grabban.

7.) 24 Jun 2018 14:06:25
Perks villa can’t afford to put big price tags on players.boro want Β£10mill for bamford,I would sign him for Β£5mill to be honest.wud rather bid Β£10mill for britt

8.) 24 Jun 2018 14:08:36
Sutton,he's a Bournemouth player.😁

9.) 24 Jun 2018 17:33:47
Rich I agree Grabban and Soudani

10.) 25 Jun 2018 02:54:42
Surprised Boro didn't rip our hands off with that bid!



22 Jun 2018 11:24:44
Lichaj has gone for an undisclosed fee - likely to be around 400k. A bad move in my mind unless AK has a much better option waiting in the wings. All the best Eric, top professional.


1.) 22 Jun 2018 11:49:41
Agreed Gazza. He was dedicated and hard working.

2.) 22 Jun 2018 14:17:07
It makes a change from the Scottish players we were and planning to sign this time last year

3.) 22 Jun 2018 22:27:28
I liked Eric gave it everything and the arsenal game will live long in the memory,but as someone has already said on 1 of these boards he had a bad habit of standing too far off his winger and backing off far too much

Oliveira off to Besiktas for 2.5m. Still only 27 years old. What an absolute steal!


1.) 12 Dec 2018 13:30:15
He did ok for us at a difficult time, and if he could convert more of his chances in front of goal, he could be an amazing player. I'd say Β£2.5m is pretty accurate of his worth.

2.) 12 Dec 2018 18:18:25
In todays market I'd say its a steal. At Championship level, in a good team he can score goals, and lots of them. Less than half of what we paid for grabban and 6m for him is starting to look like a bargain.

3.) 13 Dec 2018 00:53:13
well he wasn't worth the 5m Norwich paid for him and think he's a disruptive influence in the dressing room.



01 Dec 2018 13:25:42
Hate to say it but Pantillimon could be the difference between promotion and not this season. Its been a long time since I've seen a GK so poor at Forest. His disttibution is appalling, the command of his area is none existant. He's a monster of a man and cannot come and collect a ball. When he does make a save, most of the time he palms it back into the box. Get Luke Steele in net and then get a replacement in Jan. There's a reason he's never held down a club and was 4th choice at Watford.




29 Nov 2018 07:00:27
Pantillimon must be replaced.


1.) 29 Nov 2018 14:01:10
The reason he doesn't leave his line is his feet are so big he hasn't got the strength to lift his boots up



09 Nov 2018 07:07:38
The big question ahead of tomorrow's game is Colback or Yacob? Playing both is not an option, they're too similar. Geddy needs to be on the pitch to play box to box and help Dirikwa out of the right.


1.) 09 Nov 2018 10:58:39
Think he will play both and push Darykwa and Robinson up in support of Cash and Lolley,Colback to protect Robinson and Yacob to supprt Tendai.

That would effectivley give us 5 in midfield with Cash, Lolley and Carvaleho.

Grabban will get chances with 4 wingers in effect. that's my opinion.

2.) 09 Nov 2018 11:17:59
what happens when they win possession and there's no one in the centre of midfield to break up play?

3.) 09 Nov 2018 10:57:59
Colback is AK's easy decision!

4.) 09 Nov 2018 12:48:13
I think so too Red. He hasn't really put a foot wrong so I can't see why he'd be replaced. Great to have Yacob pushing him though.

5.) 09 Nov 2018 12:51:45
In a article it suggests :

Reading between the lines of wbat the manager said in a recent interview AK has effectively said Yacob took his chance against SU so will play.

6.) 09 Nov 2018 12:52:21
Colback and Yacob. The latter is capable of attacking passes not just DM work. Geddy needs a rest.

7.) 09 Nov 2018 15:28:02
We are at home let them worry about our attacking threat Gazza i thing that Colback and Yacob playing together will help us both in defence and attack, allowing Tendai and Robbo to push on.

8.) 09 Nov 2018 15:48:03
Playing both of them will only lower the average height of the squad further.

9.) 09 Nov 2018 16:08:20
Point taken but if he plays Colback i think Gueddy will miss out.

Anyway 3 pts tomorrow i think as we play as a team and they don't



31 Oct 2018 12:08:01
Appiah should start on the right on Saturday. Lolley, Carvalho, Appiah with Grabban upfront. Geddy and Colback in the centre, Fox and Figs at the back with Robinson left back. No more Dawson, Osborn, Bridcutt or goncalves please.


1.) 31 Oct 2018 12:22:05
He played like "Les" Dawson last night!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

2.) 31 Oct 2018 12:24:28
Also matty cash plenty of running and energy but again no end product .

3.) 31 Oct 2018 14:21:27
My team for Saturday 4-2-3-1






Dias huffs and puffs but has no end product and Appiah has pace to burn and knows where the goal is.

4.) 31 Oct 2018 15:56:51
My "Team" for Saturday


5.) 31 Oct 2018 16:01:32
Osborn is a good player. Just not at left back.

6.) 31 Oct 2018 16:47:50
My line up
Special brew
Fosters carling Heineken Budweiser
Gin rum vodka
Guinness stones Stella
Happy days

7.) 31 Oct 2018 17:00:14
Ha!! Ha!!
Nice one Skeggsy!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

All the common labels, no class, not a single IPA.
As I was typing I thought IPA Individual Portuguese Ace.

9.) 31 Oct 2018 18:07:31

10.) 31 Oct 2018 18:26:19

Appiah actually has some quality. When Worralls back in the team and he's being a calamity and you're all slating him,I'll be the one saying I told you so

Ahh echoes of how good Brereton once was in some peoples eyes and how much of a travesty it was that we sold him. 7m doesn't look so bad now though does it. Worrall is no different, he's never shown anything to suggest he's ever going to be any other than a mediocre championship defender. People just have a blinkered vision on home grown players.

If anything, a defender in a poor team has the chance to shine, be the one to step up and show class, Worrall never did that.

We can all see Pantillimons frailties so don't think that AK is too blinkered to see them too. He'll be very well aware of the issue that is Pants and will look to sort it out in Jan. But for now, he's keeping him in the team for continuity. Forster is the man I'd like to see come in.

Let's be honest, he's a calamity in net. Can anyone name anything he does particularly well? IMO his distribution is the worst part of his game. How many times do we see him kick the ball straight to the opposition or out of play, and how long does it take him to decide whether to kick it long or play it short giving the opposition so much time to reshape. We should have known though looking at his history. 15 years in football and only 205 appearances to show for it, and 115 of those were at the start of his career for a nobody Romanian team. He's only ever been employed as a back up to a back up and somehow he's landed as our first choice keeper.
