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. £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!!! 🤔🤔🤔

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

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



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 £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 £10mill for bamford,I would sign him for £5mill to be honest.wud rather bid £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



17 Jun 2018 11:45:59
Just seen Merc with plate D7 INGS in town


1.) 17 Jun 2018 11:58:42
Is the 7 for the years he was not playing????????????

2.) 17 Jun 2018 12:19:36
Danny Ings isn’t on holiday at the moment. So doubt it was him.

3.) 17 Jun 2018 12:32:17
Just seen a Ferrari with M355I in town!!! 😱😱😱

4.) 17 Jun 2018 13:10:16

5.) 17 Jun 2018 13:40:26

6.) 17 Jun 2018 14:08:12
I’ve just seen one with FF7 9??😂😂

7.) 17 Jun 2018 14:14:35
Rogie, no better way to away the Messi he created than to go to the home of the black stuff for a crack.

8.) 17 Jun 2018 14:15:19
That's mine you should see the state of it inside

9.) 17 Jun 2018 14:19:09
You don't live in Nottingham anyway!.😏

10.) 17 Jun 2018 15:19:19
Thats his plate without the s. He lives near me in lancs

11.) 17 Jun 2018 15:51:37
Prob one one the dingles from emerdale.

12.) 17 Jun 2018 18:49:44
He's going back to burnley on loan for next season



10 Jun 2018 11:03:50
Newcastle are interested in Osborn. Offers in the region of 5m likely to be accepted. For me he's not worth that so would snap their hand off if an offer came in. It would make sense for him to go and join up with old academy team mates Lascelles and Darlow. Maybe we could look at a deal for Darlow to come the other way.


1.) 10 Jun 2018 12:22:29
Versatile left footer £5m? Too cheap in todays market. I would accept offers over £10m or a straight swap for Mitrovic.👍

2.) 10 Jun 2018 13:19:48
£5mil for osborn would be close to the full fee wed have to pay for marriott. i look at it and think would you swap osborn for marriott as the transfer fees and wages would be similar. surely there's no doubt youd rather have marriott out of the 2.

3.) 10 Jun 2018 13:35:24
A player like Benny would be difficult to replace for that money it seems our fans underestimate our home grown players to me

4.) 10 Jun 2018 13:38:05
Would not be happy if we sold Osborn for 5m can play anywhere in midfield and fill in at lb, still only 23 and been our most consistent best performer for the last 3 seasons. 10m+ at least for me or less with a player involved too such as darlow, Colback or Mitrovic

5.) 10 Jun 2018 14:36:07
A lot of players could play in various positions and do a decent job, it doesn't mean they're value doubles. Like I've said before, he's jack of all trades, master of none, we need a team of masters.

6.) 10 Jun 2018 15:15:07
Unless we had an offer we can't refuse, he's to good to release. The main factor being, his heart is with Forest. You can't buy that.

7.) 10 Jun 2018 15:36:05
Gaza don’t think anyone said his value should double, greatest team we ever had had a jack of all trades,his goal in cologne got us to our 1st ever European cup final, clough always said Ian bowyer was 1 of his most important squad members not because of his outstanding ability,he was less technically gifted than most in the team but because he had great attitude and fight ibelieve Ben is in a similar mold

8.) 10 Jun 2018 16:42:27
If we sell Osborn AK is not the manager we need. Too many on here are quick to criticise Benny but to me he is one of the best players we have got, and I'd be very loath to lose him.

9.) 10 Jun 2018 16:51:37
Osborn doesn't know how to play a forward pass, he can't take the ball past a man, he's physically weak. I could have a the best pass percentage at Forest if 99% of my passes were sideways or backwards. Massively over rated but shows how bad the team has been for him to be considered our player of the season. Good news is, AK sees this too, that's why he's looking to buy a new team.

10.) 10 Jun 2018 20:43:36
Gazza, I wouldn’t sell him on the cheap but you Are so right to highlight how bad the team has been if Ben has been our best player for 3 seasons. Solid performer with a good attitude no doubt.

Regarding us underestimating our ‘homegrown talent’ I only base my opinion on what I see at the home games and apart from cash no one has convinced me they are what many have said they are.

our league position is testament to the fact we tried to play four : five of smith, clough, Worrall, Cash, McKay, Cummings, Walker and Brereton in the same team. Never going to work. I don’t include Osborn now, he’s a senior player by right.

I acknowledge that some fellow reds are irritated by those who are willing to watch the youngsters toil and under achieve. To be honest I get irritated when it’s expected of us to watch players, who aren’t ready and who get out thought and outplayed. It’s not value for money I’m afraid and thankfully we won’t be expected to watch so many of them next season, I’m not knocking their efforts but we need to be winning more games

11.) 10 Jun 2018 20:54:25
Osborn might be a lot of things??
But physically weak ??
That's not one of em.he could play two games back to back.
Not sure what you've been watching??

12.) 10 Jun 2018 20:57:41
Get raffa and keep Osborn
Success guaranteed

13.) 10 Jun 2018 20:58:11
Imo Osborn at the right price. Sell. Puts in the graft but when midfield simply not enough goals or physical presence.Thats why Watson & co came in.As LB just too small as Cardiff showed.
Versatile, but since his Ipswich debut his progression has stalled.

14.) 10 Jun 2018 21:50:43
2star I actually agree with you I think Brereton will be a top player, but as you say he's not ready to do the job he’s being asked to do,same goes for worrall, cash had a couple of good games later in the season, bu has been in and out before that, as regards Cummings and McKay simply not good enough, I go home and most away and am too tired of watching boys trying to do men’s jobs, not their fault though, thought your post was in general spot on mate,

15.) 10 Jun 2018 22:31:54
Stevie , defo mate , we are on the same page. Too much to soon but defo something worthy of nurture

The tallest goal keeper in the league and he's totally incapable of coming and collecting the ball in the air. It's been brewing for a few games now and AK has to seriously consider replacing Pants.


1.) 20 Oct 2018 16:57:12
Think if Lolley's shot had went in,we would have went on to win.

2.) 20 Oct 2018 17:01:18
Bin saying it for ages flat footed snow flake.



06 Oct 2018 18:28:11
Well I'd have taken 4 points from the Millwall and Middlesborough games, I just didn't think they would come that way round. We just need that little bit more consistency. They'll get huge amounts of confidence from that win, they've proved to themselves that they can go and win some of the best in the league. Just need to do it on a cold Wednesday night at the CG now.


1.) 06 Oct 2018 18:46:18
Too right. Good post.



03 Oct 2018 21:57:34
What was Pantillimon doing tonight, he lost the ability to throw and kick a ball. As for their second goal, what a shambles. Bring in Steel!


1.) 03 Oct 2018 22:03:37

2.) 03 Oct 2018 22:05:56
Pantilimon is a clown.
Lucky to even get a point after that. An almost embarrassing performance.
Take Lolley out and we've very little attacking flair.
Grabban and Carvalho anonymous.
Murphy should have come on at half time. Osborn should never have gone off.

3.) 03 Oct 2018 23:24:40
Brutally bad,watched it on sky red button pants was crap never seen anything as bad it looked like it was his 1st game ever hi it,Murphy must start against boro Burton in cup looking dodgey now as well



03 Oct 2018 18:26:05
I'm not expecting fireworks tonight. Millwall will come and put men behind the ball and be very hard to break down so I expect a game similar to the Rotherham game. Forest will once again have to be resolute and keep plugging away. And you know they will!


1.) 03 Oct 2018 19:14:09
A war of attrition.



22 Sep 2018 07:56:59
One change required for me today, Cash out, Lolley in. I think its really important we keep these 2 fresh and alternating them through a busy period is the way to go, they'll both play with fresh legs and play with something to prove.


1.) 22 Sep 2018 08:50:38
If it ain't bust,don't fix it.

2.) 22 Sep 2018 09:35:26
I wouldn't change starting 11 from Wednesday
But I think Dias will come in for cash.

3.) 22 Sep 2018 10:40:21
Wouldn’t that be a square peg in a round hole swapping a right winger for a left winger?

4.) 22 Sep 2018 11:25:22
Cash seems to be developing an understanding with Janko. I would like to see it blossom.

5.) 22 Sep 2018 11:45:31
As we now have an interchangeable forward 3 AK will keep freshening up this area of the team to keep the high tempo pressing game going. I think a couple of changes for Rotherham

6.) 22 Sep 2018 12:31:14
Keep the same team.

He never impressed me when he was given a chance in the first team. Very slow, little anticipation and awareness, got skinned all too often. Maybe AK has seen the same.

It comes down to how badly the club need the money to balance the books. How do we know that Forests plan was always going to be offloading a youngster or two to balance the books after the summers spending. For me, 8m for Brereton presents good money. Whether he should be getting game time or not is another story but the fact is he isn't, AK sees him as 4th striker right now.

Cash in and get a striker that can actually score goals now. 20m for Brereton in 3 years time or 180m for getting promoted to the Prem come what may?

I understand your point Psycho but I'd at least like to see him give it a go. Keep hounding Championship defenders with quick, skillful runs and they'll soon start backing off.

He's got some serious talent for sure but he needs to prove he can do it in the Championship. Very different level to an under 21s game against Bosnia.

I love how people are ripping in to Brereton. If Forest were near the bottom of the league right now, selling him would have been the worst bit of business since time began.
