Goalkeeper Luke Steele, 33, will be Forest's 11th signing of the summer joining on a free after his release from Bristol City. Wage will reportedly be 7k per week

Forest have 7 keepers on the books currently. Expect Dimi Evtimov and Tim Erlandsson to leave soon, and Stephen Henderson once he has recovered from his injury.

I must admit that I cannot see the logic behind that one.


2.) 31 Jul 2018 19:22:30
Maybe its to let smith leave on loan to gain more 1st team experience


3.) 31 Jul 2018 21:13:38
Selling Kapino for Β£1 mil to Werder Bremen


4.) 31 Jul 2018 21:34:20
Don't get it either at 33 he's hardly played other than for Barnsley always been a number two.
Anyone who wants Kapino and give us a million snap their hands off


5.) 31 Jul 2018 22:40:50
id be happy with any money for kapino as he came in free. 1 mil would be great


6.) 01 Aug 2018 09:20:46
We seem a bit heavy on 'Keepers?


7.) 01 Aug 2018 10:20:27
Crossley hasn't played for years.😁


8.) 01 Aug 2018 11:02:43
Smith loan to Birmingham


9.) 01 Aug 2018 11:13:32
Let's get Barry Roach back ,very experianced now.
CARLO
What about Goodlad


10.) 01 Aug 2018 14:14:24
It's got to be a cardboard cut-out ? Surely??


11.) 01 Aug 2018 17:16:31
Please don't loan Smith to a Championship club. Unless it's Blackburn, Rotherham or Wigan. A team likely to be at the wrong end of the table. . oh go on then Birmingham.😁


12.) 01 Aug 2018 17:53:11
Good business in my eyes. Solid and experienced backup in Steele and to make 1m Euros off Kapino is good.

Emitov, Henderson will both go whilst Erlanderson will be loaned. Smith will be third choice unless Championship Club come in for him on loan.

Clough, Manchienne and Vellios will all go out before deadline either on loan or perminant.

Only signing now might be rightback on loan.

Good summer though! Excited for season!


13.) 01 Aug 2018 19:16:59
Very funny Scouse!!

McKay's move to Swansea now complete. 500k is the reported fee (the same amount we paid for him a year ago)

J65 nffc

1.) 31 Jul 2018 23:55:18
Now claimed Β£1.5m, which is a much better deal for Forest if true.πŸ‘


2.) 01 Aug 2018 07:31:53
I think it's 500k with a load of add ons.


3.) 01 Aug 2018 08:36:07
He'd be well worth the 500k if he's managed right hoping they've put a sell on clause


 

 

16 Jul 2018 13:28:27
Sunderland look set to sign a defensive midfielder, after being linked with Leadbitter (as have Forest) .

With leadbitter said to not be part of Pulis' plans this season, could he make the switch to the CG?

Would be a good player for us IMO. Maybe not a starter but good depth in that position.


Also, cracking result earlier today from the boys #COYR.

J65 nffc

1.) 16 Jul 2018 15:21:22
With the wages he will most likely want he would have to be a first choice player, too expensive just to be a back up player.


2.) 16 Jul 2018 15:52:20
Would his wages be higher or lower than Jack Colback's?


3.) 16 Jul 2018 16:31:08
J65. I do not know, i would have thought similar wages, but the differences for me are that the manager has shouted from the rooftops that he wants Colback back at Forest, therefore would be a first choice player. Leadbitter has not had the manager say anything about him since joining Forest as far as i know and you are saying that he would only be second choice so no comparison can be made on wages. Just wasted money on a second choice player.


4.) 16 Jul 2018 18:37:53
Sooner have Colback all day long alongside Watson rather then The Legbiter who is on the wane now


5.) 17 Jul 2018 11:46:26
Fair points. It depends if AK wants to add depth or quality to that position. Leadbitter would provide more depth at cheaper price (both signing fee and wages). That was why I posted it

Jorge Grant is understood to have had a medical today at Luton Town, and is expected to join the newly promoted League 1 side on a season-long loan deal.

1.) 06 Jul 2018 16:04:03
Good move for the lad.I think I have read somewhere that they like to play with an attacking flair?


 

 

29 Jun 2018 15:19:11
Ive read that Soudani has completed his medical and signed a contract at the club.

Croatian media saying it's done. Just waiting for official confirmation.

So happy with the business done so far. Improving all areas of the pitch:

1. Pantilimon > any of our GK options
2. Figueiredo > Mancienne (set to leave)
3. Dawson > Hobbs (injruy issues)
4. Robinson > Traore (set to leave)
5. Goncalves > Ward (set to leave)
6. Dias > Dejagah
7. Carvalho > any current AM options
8. Soudani > Cummings
9. Grabban > any of our FW options

Now all we need is a RB to replce Darikwa in the starting XI, and a CDM to add more depth with the current options limited to Watson, Bridcutt, Guedioura and Osborn potentially (assuming Yates is loaned out)

1.) 11 Jul 2018 12:32:43
I'd be inclined to bring another goalie in as well so that Jordan Smith can go out on loan. It's no good for him to be sat watching football. He needs to be playing. Another left back as well for competition.


2.) 11 Jul 2018 14:17:59
We are still looking at Bruno Varela from Benfica. He would cost us around Β£12m I think.

He looks a good player but I fear it could harm us from a FFP POV.

Also, we have 5 GK on our books at the moment. Henderson and Evtimov need selling, and either Smith or Kapino can be loaned out IMO


3.) 11 Jul 2018 14:37:31
Would either he or Pantilimon accept playing second fiddle, i guess whichever does could play the music before each game. 😁


4.) 11 Jul 2018 15:19:17
Who we're looking at is pure speculation until something happens. However, as per the FFP concerns, if we are after Varela for Β£12 million that would be spread over 4-5 years like the Carvalho and Grabban deals, and possibly Pantillimon's, so I can't imagine that being much of a problem with FFP now being spread over a 3 year period.


 

 

27 Jun 2018 09:04:13
How would this be for a matchday squad next season (4-2-3-1)?

Pantilimon
Byram Figueiredo Fox Fabio
Watson Osborn
Dias Carvalho Goncalves
Podence

Smith
Worrall
Dawson
Bridcutt
Cash
Lolley
Soudani

Title winning?

J65 nffc

1.) 27 Jun 2018 09:15:21
A good team but assuming soudani and podence do actually come to us?


2.) 27 Jun 2018 09:20:14
What no strikers??


3.) 27 Jun 2018 09:53:01
Podence and Soudani are strikers who can play on wing


4.) 27 Jun 2018 10:09:33
A few weeks ago it was stated that we had sold 18000 season cards anyone know how many more been sold ?would be great if we could make it 20000 πŸ’ͺ


5.) 27 Jun 2018 10:16:10
Podence being 5ft 5in would be ill equipped to play a lone striker


6.) 27 Jun 2018 11:07:42
APS, I read on monday that we were up to 18,500. I think we will reach the 20,000 before season starts. #COYR


7.) 27 Jun 2018 13:12:19
I think Podence doesn't really play upfront, more behind the striker or on the wing. Soudani more suited to striker role.


8.) 27 Jun 2018 13:22:19
My only concern is with signing all these young Portuguese player. Will they roll there sleeves up when we up against it on a cold wet winters day. We should be bringing in a few experienced players like grabbon Clayton tomlin ect


9.) 27 Jun 2018 13:38:11
And Fox over Dawson in starting 11?! He did ok last season, but I don't expect to see him start if Dawson is fit!


10.) 27 Jun 2018 13:39:20
Grabben and Clayton yes. But tomlin I'd leave him be.


11.) 27 Jun 2018 13:41:45
J65 he would play behind the front man.
I think size isn't relevant you can still be a good strong player if you're short in stature.


12.) 27 Jun 2018 15:34:31
He is such a tricky player he would win us so many freekicks. I wonder if any of the Portuguese lads can take free kick s? Did byram for leeds?

Bury @ Home in first round of Carabao Cup. Nice to get an easy home game to start. COYR.

What are everyones thoughts on the new kit?

Also, any news on the potentially outgoing players?
- Henderson, Kapino, Mancienne, TraorΓ©, Ward, Vellios, Murphy, Cummings, etc.

1.) 15 Jun 2018 11:23:08
Not too fussed on it. doesn't really matter to me if they play in Alf Garnett's string vests!!! As long as we're challenging the top 6!!! FTID!!!


2.) 15 Jun 2018 19:224:29
The worst in a long time and not helped by the sponsor logo name which is naff. Past the age of wearing replica shirts but would not be seen dead in this one even if we went the Wembley.
Hopefully the sponsorship deal will offset the fall in shirt sales for this fashion disaster?

Start of a new Daw n son.

Perhaps not. He may have improved during his loan spell, I've not seen him play since he left.

And it seems AK is going to give him a chance. I think he could serve a purpose for us this season. Just my opinion

Lam is an ideal squad player. Can play CB, FB and CDM. Unlikely to be in the team on match day but can cover if we suffer with injuries

I think Southgate is a believer of 'Don't change a winning team', as am I. Thus Walker remained at CB throughout
