AK wants to bring Patrick Bamford back to Forest. Seems like a big risk, depends what Patrick Bamford we'd be getting.

GazzaRed

1.) 12 Jan 2018 13:33:00
He is not hungry enough to play for us!


2.) 12 Jan 2018 17:29:47
Never want to see him back! Completely deluded on his level of ability. Ben Brereton complete opposite, puts a shift in every game need to put a massive price tag on him to protect clubs interests.


3.) 12 Jan 2018 18:44:43
Agreed footie bamford had the chance to stay with but chose to go to chelsea chasing the dosh if memory seves me right his told told him not to sign a forest contract he should have stayed at cg 😑


4.) 12 Jan 2018 21:30:53
No he didn't he was sold for cash by someone who only liked accumulating it


5.) 12 Jan 2018 22:27:32
Sorry not true ff79 his parents told him chelsea could offer him more his contract was up nearly up anyway

Takis Lemon is in talks. Previous olympiacos manager.

Something to suck on at least


2.) 05 Jan 2018 11:09:29
Better off with Keith lemon😀😀😀


3.) 05 Jan 2018 11:15:59
That could leave a sour taste in the mouth when he leaves.


4.) 05 Jan 2018 11:20:45
Was well thought of by Olympiacos fans for being able to squeeze the best out of players.
Let's hope it Doesn't turn sour.


5.) 05 Jan 2018 11:29:46
R Whites as his assistant? 'Cos he's a lemon aid.😀


6.) 05 Jan 2018 11:34:17
Not a bad call Gazzared, 4 times at Olympiakos did well each time but sadly lost the dressing room and his defensive record in the Champions league (not wanting to lose) still i reckon Marinakis likes him, we will just have to wait and see 😈


7.) 05 Jan 2018 12:51:46
He is our manager according to Wikipedia!
Done a great job in Greece but would he transfer that to Championship and English players!?! Would Vellios come back into play under him and could he get best out of Bouchalakis!?


8.) 05 Jan 2018 13:29:20
Posted that earlier but is it possible that someone is being mischievous?

Just read one news report that Arsenal will face MARTIN O NEILS Nottingham Forest on Sunday. Very strange mistake to make unless somebody knows something . Weird.


11.) 05 Jan 2018 19:23:13
The bottom line is nothing is clear haha reading reports we have talked to burton and barnelys about Clough and Heckingbottom and then other reports saying Karanka is done deal and others Lemonis whilst other papers saying we been working out deal with O’Neil. hopefully something is going on and they just aren’t leaking anything so papers just making it up and guessing rather than nothing going on.

Many clubs in for Lichaj, including Leeds and some MLS clubs. Get his contract sorted now Forest, he's twice the player of Darikwa.

GazzaRed

1.) 06 Dec 2017 09:24:07
With so many clubs interested that should show Warburton how good he is, and he should keep being picked, and in his best position.


2.) 06 Dec 2017 12:09:13
If the contract he,s being offered is the one in the post I still think MW is trying to move him on and then blame the player ,he loves TD.
CARLO


3.) 06 Dec 2017 13:30:26
Carlo
Give over. Agent and club are haggling and Eric wants to stay!


4.) 06 Dec 2017 13:48:56
I have to admit, I don't see what some of you do when it comes to Lichaj. He was released from a very poor Aston Villa squad, which in my opinion says quite a lot. He's done ok for us but that's about it. I have seen him play on many occasions, and have you all forgotten when he gets turned, he's always first in with a little kick or shirt pull. I'm afraid if you want to see football at a higher level, it means bringing in players of a higher standard than Eric. Now I know your all going to hit me with the fans player of the year. well there was nobody else really to pick, in what was a poor squad.


5.) 06 Dec 2017 16:45:15
Murdoch

Although you have a point, what i think you are missing is that if he was as good as you want him to be he would not have hung around Forest.

When Antonio was with us Eric allowed him to do what he did best by covering his defensive duties.

Eric works hard is pretty good at defending and gets forward aswell, forget about him having been player of the year, he is our best defender.


6.) 06 Dec 2017 19:43:35
Eric needs to stay and be made captain,he's been here long enough and majority of fans love him,he's happy and settled in Nottingham and always puts a shift in,someone has to take over from Cohen and I can't think of anyone better,still relatively young for a full back and someone who the fans relate to.
Sign him up and make him captain


7.) 06 Dec 2017 21:23:30
Redman, unfortunately, due to the many years of decline at our club, I think we now have to accept that any decent players we get, or produce out of the academy are going to be sold to a bigger club with money. The hope is with the academy you produce a conveyor belt of talent. We therefore can't just look to sign average players as we are worried about them leaving at some point in the future. With Eric, we have had a very poor defence for over 2 seasons now, and the fact he's standing out as the best player, I think is not a reflection of his ability, but more how poor our defence has become. I see too much sentiment attached to this player, and as a business we want the best we can get. If we want progression, this is all part of it.


8.) 06 Dec 2017 21:55:04
Murdoch were no different from any side outside the prem,You get a good player and he'll move on.
Even if you get to the premier,unless your top six,if you have a good player they'll move on.
Only got to look at Southampton for that,what a side they'd have if they could have kept the talent,got nothing to do with clubs in decline.


9.) 07 Dec 2017 06:02:12
Britt left in the summer because he wanted to go but we kept hold of the youth
We will end up selling some but Fawaz has gone so the quick buck mentality should have gone too
Move forward Murdoch, that's what the club is trying to do and Eric is a player that can help us do that


10.) 07 Dec 2017 09:07:25
Sell Eric at your peril Warbs!!!


11.) 07 Dec 2017 13:42:08
We will have to agree to disagree on this one, as I really don't see that Eric raises the standard of the team. An ok championship player at best. If we went back to the last time we had a good back four, so I'm thinking Morgan, Chambers and probably Cohen at left back. Add Eric to that, and ask who is the weakest player? For me it's Eric all day long. Fast forward to now, and suddenly he's the best we have?! No, because you can pick 3 others ahead of him. This is my point about having better calibre players. We have been so poor in this area for years now, some of you have almost accepted the lower level as the new standard!

Forest are looking to sign Moroccan international Mimoun Mahi in January for 2m. This is the release cause in his contract. Currently plays for FC Groningen in the Dutch league. He's a winger and has scored 16 goals in 26 games.

GazzaRed

1.) 27 Oct 2017 13:25:47
Stoke are the front runners for him followed by Swansea and Bristol city


2.) 27 Oct 2017 13:26:59
That is a great return of goals for a winger i have not seen him play, after the recent Dutch failures you can not be sure of how to judge the Dutch leagues. Who should go should we get him, as we are bulky in the midfield department.


3.) 27 Oct 2017 14:48:59
Another defender?surley not.


4.) 28 Oct 2017 09:19:41
If we sign another M&M is this a plan to get sponsored by Mars?


5.) 28 Oct 2017 10:48:43
Remember Lars Veldvijk, he had scored over 40 goals in the same league and he was a million miles away from being a championship player so why would we be interested in this guy.


6.) 28 Oct 2017 11:11:12
There was also the ex Arsenal midfielder we got from one of the Dutch leagues.?


7.) 28 Oct 2017 12:51:33
Emnicilio, yeah remember him. his running was a bit funny 😂😂😋


 

 

23 Aug 2017 23:03:44
How bad is Cummings injury? Our fire power this season is the best we've had for years. Just need to sort the defence out.

GazzaRed

1.) 24 Aug 2017 09:49:31
I thoght it was the Greek lad who has some tightness and like Vaughan MW is taking a precaution by him coming off.

FF, you'll like this - one criticism I do have of AK is his touchline demeanour. He has said that the team need to be ready for "a war" against Burton. Maybe he should include himself in that statement and show the players a bit more desire from the touchline instead of standing, silent with his hands in his pockets.

GazzaRed

1.) 16 Feb 2018 16:10:11
That's two if you include your other post, lack of knowledge?


2.) 16 Feb 2018 17:54:08
The Prince of Darkness prowls our touchline. So be afraid be very afraid!

Wallace & Gromit before him had the same faults. In their case a cheesy demeanour on the touchline and lack of knowledge of how quickly the Championship had moved on while they preened themselves in Scotland?

Funny how Mick McCarthy stole Garner and Waghorn from Rangers at the same time and yet no-one mentions how well they are playing for Ipswich?

So boys put your blunt knives back in the box and top up your half empty glasses instead scratching around for an excuse to be miserable to down what's left of your flat pint?


3.) 17 Feb 2018 08:57:41
Wallace and Gromit, like it. More cheese Gromit?😀


4.) 17 Feb 2018 10:11:25
RiE I tend to agree although I think you're being a bit harsh on the banter fans. From what I remember about AK during the previous games, and from what fans who were there said, he shouted and made signs to players who failed to respond, and at that point he stepped back and made notes. He gave them the chance to do it right and they didn't; no point in bawling your head off at someone who isn't listening and wants to play how they want to play themselves. Either you have a boss and do what he says or you can sling your hook.


 

 

16 Feb 2018 15:08:43
If we go 4 at the back tomorrow with Fox at left back, we lose. We lose by more if all Fox has for cover is Dowell. The most obvious weakness in our recent performances can be seen by anyone who has a slight knowledge of the game. Please AK plug this hole in the bucket tomorrow and give fox some cover.

GazzaRed

1.) 17 Feb 2018 09:01:41
Dowell is a concern, I hope we don't play him just because of a loan clause. He's maybe dropped his standards by 10% but then again he's probably being targeted, as one of our better players. All part of learning your trade, let's hope he ups his game.👍


 

 

11 Feb 2018 07:51:58
I can't remember the last time a saw a forest performance so bad. The only player I was impressed with was Pantillimon, his communication was very good and didn't do too much wrong. It's no coincidence that for much of the match the ball ended up down our left flank, time after time Hull targeted Danny Fox who again was woeful. He gets stuck too high up the pitch, is too slow to get back leaving Osbourne and guediora getting sucked in. I'd be very surprised if Dowell plays again, he was shocking, gave the ball away at every opportunity and couldn't pick a pass all game long. I could go through the whole team and point blame but the post would be too long. AK hinted that he game the team who played Preston another chance to prove themselves, well AK I hope you got your answers and I hope the new players you bought in are half decent because they've got to dig us out of a big hole,.

GazzaRed

1.) 11 Feb 2018 08:12:32
We have no choice but to stick with ak now I just can’t see how we’re going to get any better with the players we have the defence is no different to the last 2-3 seasons there’s no goals in the forward line up and the formation just doesn’t work so please come up with a plan b


2.) 11 Feb 2018 08:16:00
He can change the whole team and make no difference.
We have only three strikers who are played isolated and have no confidence because of the way they have to play.
The tactics will send us down not the players.


3.) 11 Feb 2018 08:45:59
That’s ok ff79 but as much as we don’t think ak is as good as everyone thought it’s to late and really dumb to bring another manager in I can’t stand the thought of us swapping and changing again we’re just going to after hope that ak comes good and very quickly if we can get a win against Burton we still have a bit of Lee way and that one win desperately needed could give players a bit of confidence that’s needed keeping my fingers crossed for burton game even bigger than the hull game


4.) 11 Feb 2018 09:14:32
There was a clear lack of direction yesterday, when Hull came forward we didn't seem to have enough men behind the ball yet when we went forward there was a clear lack of players running forward. So we must have packed put the midfield. We'll yes but then no one had support when they were on the ball in the middle of the pitch. Truly a shambles. I think the blame is with AK and the players. The players look beaten before they kick a ball and AK isn't making his message clear enough because every player on that pitch yesterday looked lost.


5.) 11 Feb 2018 09:29:50
Brazil came in and installed a bit of confidence back into the cub the players and the fans.
Karanka has destroyed that and with no team spirit you won't win games.


6.) 11 Feb 2018 10:08:40
I get your point 79 but things needed to be shaken up, too long we've put up with journeymen giving average performances, getting the club no where. At least AK has came in and tried to do something about it. It's a true test of how fragile our old crop is that as soon as a manager comes in and puts them under some pressure, they completely fold. Well I'm sorry Mancienne, Osbourne, Fox and Co. It's time to step up or get out of our club because too long we've accepted their mediocre performances.


7.) 11 Feb 2018 10:51:38
Trouble is gazza he's bought journeyman in.
You have to shake things up gradually at this point of the season you don't go out and buy 10 unfit players.
There isn't the time to get them fit.
Too many changes too quickly it just makes for one really unhappy club atmosphere.
You'll see darikwa at right back next week that's clear he doesn't fancy Eric.


 

 

01 Feb 2018 09:38:19
Great attitude shown by AK. He had clearly seen enough after the Preston game. Out with the old, in with the new. The players that survived will now know they're playing for their Forest careers between now and the end of the season, no more easy rides. We'll done AK!

GazzaRed

1.) 01 Feb 2018 09:51:03

Great game for Forest to go and give out free tickets to those who have 'lost that loving feeling'. I wonder how many of those people will be spending their hard earned cash to come back for another shocking display of spineless, incompetent football. I'm not blaming AK for a second because he's inherited such a shoddy squad (with the exception of a few) and he needs time to sort the mess out but the majority of the squad need to be moved on/let go in the summer. Keep faith in AK Reds, he'll come good, given time and the chance to make the team his own. The likes of Fox, Darikwa, Osbourne, Mckay, Murphy and so on will never come good and as long as they playing in a forest shirt, no matter the manager, they are either not good enough, not consistent enough or just don't have the apitite and are happy collecting their wages. Bring on the summer!

In the modern game, you don't just hire a manager, you hire his ethos. Every modern manager has a way he thinks football is played successfully and they very rarely divert from that. We just need to hope we stay in the division and AK can properly implement what he's trying to do over the summer.

I think we will see the new CB come in and will play a back 3 with 2 wing backs. Fox is not good enough to have no cover behind him, teams target him every time, and every time it works, this is why 3 CBs works better for us, ideally Fox wouldn't be on the pitch at all. Brereton despite his recent lack of form should be up front (someone needs to show him a replay of the Arsenal game and ask him where that player has gone). Osbourne, Watson, Colback and Geddy in midfield.

Panto
Lichaj Worall Mancienne Figueiredo Fox
Colback
Geddy Watson Osbourne
Brereton

It is worrying. On paper the team has been improved however so many new faces is a big risk. let's hope the majority can hit the ground running. For now, we just have to trust the AK knows what he's doing.

Kapino looks like a good acquisition. Only 23 and already has international caps under his belt. It does make you wonder what was the point of getting pantillimon in.

Fox hasn't become a world beater overnight just because he had a good game against Burton. Yes his best position is at CB but this is only because he's too slow mentally and physically to play in the position he's applied his trade for most of his career. Surely we can do better than that. Also, I don't agree with signing Dawson in the summer, he's also not been up to speed for at least 2 seasons now, I really don't understand the intention with that one.

Mancienne is a good CB, he has shown this consistently. His confidence is rock bottom right now and it shows in his performances. The best thing AK can do for him is take the captaincy away from him.
