The Post are suggesting Olympaicos will sign Carvalho in the summer.


1.) 12 Apr 2019 21:20:47
I think Jorge Mendes will be involved in that one. A spot of triple representation,me thinks!

2.) 12 Apr 2019 21:39:01
The only way to balance the books,but how long will the authorities let it happen?
Other championship sides are bound to complain that we are avoiding the restraints of ffp.

3.) 12 Apr 2019 23:22:54
Mad Mel tactics. Buy ground off yourself for x2 it’s market value??!!!

4.) 12 Apr 2019 23:29:12
They won’t complain when he looks like a world beater in that league, which knowing our luck is bound to happen 🤷🏻‍♂️

5.) 13 Apr 2019 11:07:59
Now 2 tone get real he'd struggle to look like a world beater in our ladies team. We've been had good and proper with him and his 2 Portuguese amigos. Wed struggle to find a buyer for 120 grand let alone 12 million.

6.) 13 Apr 2019 11:46:46
Syred I know what you mean but how many times have we got rid of a dud only to see them improve as soon as they leave. How embarrassing is it to have him as our record signing- compared to Keane, collymore, pvh etc.

7.) 13 Apr 2019 15:59:47
Most players that leave the championship to go to Greece will improve massively, difference in quality is huge like Walker in lower leagues



31 Mar 2019 14:21:44
The latest rumour is Martain is looking to sign a 48year old in the summer, he is called Tommy Johnson.

He is a striking coach.


1.) 31 Mar 2019 22:01:07
We don't need his type upsetting the harmony in the squad. He'll have them working to rule and on a 3 day week!

2.) 31 Mar 2019 23:00:20
He wants him as a scout. With his remit focusing on British players.

3.) 01 Apr 2019 20:33:44
Shop steward more like getting them to strike! Hahs

4.) 02 Apr 2019 22:43:19
Sooner have amy johnson!!!😂😂✈✈

5.) 09 Apr 2019 12:55:30
Aps: she's dead.



30 Mar 2019 10:02:19
Yacob is Rumoured to be wanted by the owners other team, will we get anything, if so how much could we expect.


1.) 30 Mar 2019 14:36:36
Pinch of salt time, but we do have far too many midfielders.



24 Mar 2019 17:40:01
It has been reported that Forest are unwilling to pay Colback £50,000 a week should we agree with Newcastle a fee.


1.) 24 Mar 2019 21:16:37
To me 30 grand per week but then again he is a good player we need players of his quality if we are going places.

2.) 24 Mar 2019 21:47:49
No way should we pay any player 50.000 a week for championship full stop

3.) 25 Mar 2019 06:20:27
Should not even pay £30,000 a week.

4.) 25 Mar 2019 09:16:49
I'd offer him £25K a week and £50K if we get promoted. Promise him a possible route to coaching if he ends his career at Forest. He is a good player for Yates to learn from and Yates emerging is going to save us millions...

5.) 25 Mar 2019 13:10:19
I'd love to see him stay but he isn't a 50k per week player. His agent has done him very proud getting him that deal.

6.) 25 Mar 2019 17:15:44
I've said before that I don't think he'll stay if we aren't promoted.

7.) 25 Mar 2019 18:23:43
Colback is good but not upto Grealish’s standard . We have plenty of midfielders. So he either accepts whatever a good player at our club gets say Grabban /,Lolley or he goes. Who could blame Britt for moving for a better wage, one more injury to that knee and he is out vis a vis CC. The club wishes promotion without Colback it will still happen without Lolley it is a lot less likely

8.) 26 Mar 2019 08:42:09
We need to clear out the older guard in midfield Watson /Geddy/ Bridcutt sign Colback and bring in James Milner as Captain next season as he is out of contract. Quality over Quantity!

9.) 26 Mar 2019 14:58:48
Why compare Colback with Grealish? Two different types of player.

£50k per week is too much for a Championship side to be paying for one player, but then again we're probably paying well in excess of £50k per week for several players that rarely make the matchday squad. Maybe £50k per week would be doable if the rest of the wage bill is balanced correctly?

10.) 26 Mar 2019 18:50:06
SSWE, Even if £50,000 is doable it would unsettle the dressing room.

11.) 26 Mar 2019 21:42:05
If we ever get into the prem we will have to pay a hell lot more for players wages than we are now

12.) 26 Mar 2019 22:48:23
Footballers wages are a total disgrace anyway,none of us should be discussing 10k a week for kicking a ball about?

13.) 27 Mar 2019 21:53:02
Villa are paying Abraham £65k per week. Mings £1m loan was over 14ish games. Lansbury is taking a good wage for little game time. Villa's gates maybe 40k plus but can they be operating within FFP rules?

14.) 29 Mar 2019 19:12:59
We haven't got to agree fee with Newcastle for colback. His contract is up in summer. 30k a week no more

15.) 29 Mar 2019 19:40:40
Red always, You seem to have missed Colback himself said he checked with his agent, and he has another year left on his Newcastle contract.



23 Mar 2019 09:32:34
Figueiredo is out untill April.


1.) 23 Mar 2019 21:38:52
Does his missus know?🤣🤣🤣

2.) 24 Mar 2019 08:42:58
Good one Ff.

3.) 24 Mar 2019 18:28:06
Last time I was out for days on end I was slapped with a sex ban and had to sleep on the sofa for 3 weeks.

4.) 25 Mar 2019 16:35:35
I dream of having three weeks on the sofa

5.) 25 Mar 2019 17:17:34
I'd be glad of a sex ban as I am absolutely exhausted😏

One site has suggested Grant is a ready made replacement for Colback, i have not seen him play, does he have any potential to fill that role, or be more likely to be a roll that gets stuffed.


1.) 24 Apr 2019 16:31:12
no LC , he`s an AM like Carvalho.but he doesn't really tackle or defend will create things and get you a goal now and again though bit like Zach hoping League 1 or 2 team will buy them both this summer.good for them good for us.



23 Apr 2019 12:41:29
Aitor is the second sacked manager to say things were changed during his tenure, Warburton said the goalposts were moved, Aitor has now said the project was changed.

Martin has now worked out what suits the players he has been working with so get rid of all the players he has no use for, as much as is possible that is, and get about 4 players that are a big improvement on what we have that suit yesterday's formula.

We can then see good football as the team gradually improve both as a team, but result wise, then hopefully they will have done enough until a further 2 or 3 quality additions arrive in the January for one last big push for promotion, be it automatically or via the play offs.

I just hope Martin does not abandon what worked, or was it players just playing to leave, i so hope not.


1.) 23 Apr 2019 14:50:37
Apart from a question mark over Pants most of those players will stay with us I think. One of the problems will be that the system may not work with other teams opposing us and so MON will have to change formations to suit opponents.

2.) 23 Apr 2019 15:14:25
Bsered, We have 44 players i'm sure there must be a dozen the club would like to get rid of at least, just how many are willing to go is another matter.

Althohgh you have a point about needing to change tactics to get the better of other teams, but we need to get enough players that suit a particular tactic, and to get it off to a fine art.

3.) 23 Apr 2019 15:15:00
All this talk about shipping players not being retained and getting rid of them is nonsense, most of them will still be under contract. Whether MON is here or not it will very difficult to get rid of players under contract, what other clubs will want them ? You cannot force them out on loan. I cannot see our owners paying contracts off.

4.) 23 Apr 2019 16:23:53
64, At the end of day, be it on loan or being bought, how much do they want to play.

Off course the club will not get rid of all the players that they want out but there must be about 8 players out of contract, and not all the loan players will be kept after their season long loans are up.



22 Apr 2019 17:01:40
I'm so pleased with the result, and for Carvalho, i also hope Martin and Roy have learned some valuable lessons from todays game.

I have just wanted the team to play entertaining football and then for progress to be made with each game.


1.) 22 Apr 2019 17:05:37
Just wait till the next game if he as a bad one it will be back to what a waste of money and all the other crap

2.) 22 Apr 2019 17:30:21
He obviously enjoys the sun on his back. Unplayable today, linked well with Benny too. Solid 7 out of 10 for the team. Special mention for the back 3, who didn't give an inch.👏

3.) 22 Apr 2019 17:32:28
Dan, I have always said Carvalho has talent but he has to learn to be able to cope with the physical side of the game.

You have to be honest over the course of the season he has not proven to be worth what we paid for him.

Anyone that kids themselves Carvalho did not want to be valued at that price i say this, the moment Carvalho signed the contract with the £13m clause in it, he was accepting that figure, therefore valued himself as such.

4.) 22 Apr 2019 18:00:36
Wow, what a daft post. What was he meant to do? Refuse to sign? He's a Mendes player, does as he's told. The fee? Nothing to do with Carvalho.

5.) 22 Apr 2019 18:05:09
SCR, I was not aware there is only one team in his country, he could have asked for the fee to be lowered.

6.) 22 Apr 2019 19:07:31
Why would he? Never ever heard a player do that. Only if they have a buy out clause and want out?😐

7.) 22 Apr 2019 19:18:54
Guys, he played well today , excellent in fact, did ok up until November then went missing. Still every chance he’ll be a great player for us but possibly only in certain formations . More happy for the management team after some of the disgraceful and disrespectful comments they’ve been subjected too.

8.) 22 Apr 2019 20:17:51
Best we've got by miles on a creative front.
Martin is a winner both as a player and manager.
Don't think as a legend he deserves some of the abuse,especially from the younger fans who didn't see him play.
Never a good time to take over mid season especially with an overinflated squad,sometimes it's better to have less to choose from



22 Apr 2019 11:15:23
Martin is said to be in talks with Colback, that will not take long.

Colback. I want £50,000 a week and a 4 year deal.

Martin. I would like to give you that butt the club says £30,000 a week and a 2 year deal.

Colback. Tell the club to give me what i want or i will not be here next season.


1.) 22 Apr 2019 11:18:22
30k he can do one,he ain't that good

2.) 22 Apr 2019 11:36:08
Ff, It is not about what they are worth, although i agree with you, it is about that being about the top wage of some of our players and he is equal to, if not better than those players.

3.) 22 Apr 2019 11:58:45
Simpe , pay a basic of £10,000 and the rest on results . No win no bonus . If they don,t like it shows what hope their is in the club . Might cause I'll feeling if someone not pulling their weight, so then buck your ideas up .

4.) 22 Apr 2019 12:02:36
Doubt we have anyone on that wage

5.) 22 Apr 2019 12:45:42
Yes and say if you are suspended you won't be paid !!!

6.) 22 Apr 2019 14:17:59
Not sure what MON is doing talking to Colback about his contract that's Dourekas' job according to his job description? But then the man is never heard or seen except when wanted to sit on bench!



22 Apr 2019 08:40:30
It really shows how both football managers, and football players themselves have become so use to different ways of cheating, even the considered by some smaller ways of cheating like the pulling of shirts that Warnock has complained that a Liverpool player got a penalty after having his shirt pulled. If any player cheats, no matter how blatant they deserve any punishment given to them.

Managers must encourage the acts of cheating considering Warnocks reaction, it is time it got stopped.


1.) 22 Apr 2019 14:28:31
The Cardiff bloke had his hands and arms all over Salah's neck shoulders, arms and back so he couldn't move anywhere at all. A clearer penalty I have yet to see.

2.) 22 Apr 2019 14:41:45
Salah dived at the wrong time.😐

Bsered, I have said it before, if the team is playing rubbish football and losing the manager is on a hiding to nothing, if the team is playing good football while losing people will give the manager a bit more time because they are being entertained.

2star has said the club were naive not to take into account the way Martin has got his teams to play in recent history and should not have been brought in.

Think about it, when we get another manager the odds are the new manager will have a different style to Martins long ball game, so another big overhaul will be needed.

RIE, Our first team looked a bunch of amateurs until the 3-4-2-1 formation used, we then made a top six side look rubbish, who is to say Cummings does not just need the right formation to get the best out of him.

Dan, Were Middlesbrough to go up would he drop down a league to join Forest, only if Pulis to want rid could we get him then he would get better teams than us wanting him, even if Middlesbrough were to stay down.

2star, i'm not too sure who shoved him to one side, it might have been Warburton, we did have the young player from Everton, it could have been him who Warburton favoured, if it was Warburton that did it.
