CB in tomorrow (Aden Flint £7m)

Keeper in next week (Wes Foderingham £1.5m)


1.) 10 Aug 2017 22:11:33
Flint in at that price i will be surprised, shocking.

2.) 10 Aug 2017 23:18:59
Adam federici in on Friday.

3.) 11 Aug 2017 05:15:37
Wow, two new keepers, what has Smith done to deserve that.

4.) 11 Aug 2017 13:10:11
Mystic:your losing your powers.
What's happening? 😀😀.

5.) 12 Aug 2017 00:11:38
Aden Flint 7 million lol there are some jokers in this world!



27 Jul 2017 09:25:54
Although LDN Red doesn't believe me most of the time, his Osborn to Derby info the other day is ringing true with my guy and apparently forest are willing to sell for the right price (£7m+) and we have had 2 official bids for him from them so far, both been rejected.

Wether or not he will go, no one knows but he lives over that way and is a Derby fan. If we except a large bid and he gets offered a decent contract, could see him make the jump 🙈.


1.) 27 Jul 2017 10:18:56
Osborn flatters to deceive, looks dangerous running forward but it usually leads to nothing, and cannot tackle. When the opponents have the ball they run round him like a training cone. We can do better with that kind of money.

2.) 27 Jul 2017 10:42:14
It's those pesky Derby caterers engineering moves again. UTF will be livid.

3.) 27 Jul 2017 11:16:53
Was unaware you've crowned me your forum arch-nemesis, Mystic.

Happy your rumour for Darikwa came true - looks to be a solid addition. Can't apologise for questioning the source or validity of the rumours though.

Part and parcel of this site, I'm afraid.

Keep the rumours coming mate.

4.) 27 Jul 2017 11:38:42
Last I heard the catering team left their transfer requests as notes in sandwiches for the board.

Football's a funny old game, ain't it?!

5.) 27 Jul 2017 12:55:20
WillS - expect a reply from UTF mentioning stats for Osborn pretty soon :)

6.) 27 Jul 2017 13:35:55
Wow if we got 7m for Osbourn we would have robbed them blind.

7.) 27 Jul 2017 15:13:35
I like osbourn. I think he has very good feet. His delivery needs to be a bit more consistant but I rate him. However, 7 mill would be crazy money and we should take it. We now have lots of midfield options.

8.) 27 Jul 2017 16:13:40
That's a fair comment LDN red, I did get a little defensive to be fair. It's hard as I would love to tell you all where my info comes from but I do not want to break the trust, although if he ever looks in here he will know who I am 😂.

9.) 27 Jul 2017 16:44:25
Am i the only one that thinks Osborn is very over rated, he just dances about when he's defending. yeah fair enough going forward he does look like he's doing something but it never comes to much in my opinion.

10.) 27 Jul 2017 17:27:03
Utf must be fuming reading these 😂.

11.) 27 Jul 2017 17:38:44
Haha no worries Mystic! Best be buying your source a drink or two after your news this transfer window.

UTF will probably complain the pints are too expensive so best not to take him too.

12.) 27 Jul 2017 23:17:56
Bet his mate call him "The Locksmith". everytime it's his shout he makes a bolt for the door! 🍻🍻🍻.

13.) 28 Jul 2017 08:52:48
Rogie, don't go rattling anyone's cage. 😁😁😁.



26 Jul 2017 19:37:48
We have bid £1m for Richards from villa.


1.) 26 Jul 2017 19:51:49
Who mica Richards?

2.) 26 Jul 2017 19:55:32
really really hope that's not true. where did you see this? just wondering.

3.) 26 Jul 2017 19:57:12
And 50000 a week wages that sounds like carp to me.

4.) 26 Jul 2017 20:11:20
Where did this information come from.

5.) 26 Jul 2017 20:14:07
Not sure we need him, looked a great player in the making when young at man city, but gone off boil since and managers seem to want rid regularly.
Would imagine he's on big bucks too, don't think this one will happen.
If it does then I can see Eric going as he hasn't been offered a new contract and it's his final year.

6.) 26 Jul 2017 21:24:21
Micha plays more of a cb now doenst he? if it meant mills going I would take him as he will be far better and can actually pass a ball rather than hoof it.
It wouldn't surprise me if lichaj was sold or bid on by a better club.

7.) 26 Jul 2017 21:24:49
Can't see it happen he got injured in Germany playing for Villa 3 days ago was a quality prospect but lost his way a little but he's now very injury prone plus his wages are massive.

8.) 26 Jul 2017 21:43:03
Mills ain't going anywhere, We need to get over that one.
More likely lam will go either loan or transfer.

9.) 26 Jul 2017 22:08:02
Re Eric one would assume that the reason he hasn't yet signed a new contract is that once the season finished he went off on holiday (assumption) and then straight to play for the USA in the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Incidentally they play early in the morning in the final against Jamaica.

10.) 26 Jul 2017 22:23:39
I once went to a talk by Stuart Pearce. When asked who the best player he had worked with he said Mica Richards.

Unfortunately he also said that by the time he left Man City there was only one thing bigger than his ego and that was his arse. Psychos Way of saying he got to big for his boots.

I would also be very wary of buying anyone that Steve Bruce is willing to sell.

11.) 26 Jul 2017 22:47:00
Sounds like a few clubs are monitoring Eric
I personally hope we keep him for his effort and commitment alone
Great player.

12.) 26 Jul 2017 21:45:32
Mystic this rumour makes me feel sick. I can't imagine a player less deserving of NFFC contract. Sooner bring back Ian Brechin. Nightmare!

13.) 27 Jul 2017 01:10:41
No footballing brain unfortunately. Looked a player with his raw pace at right back but positionally was dreadful and slowly got found out as City got better players. It's easy to run round like a loon in a crap side and people think you're good. Run round like a loon in a good side then people start seeing how poor you are. He clearly hasn't worked hard enough either. Imagine 7-8 years ago if someone had said Wes Morgan and Micah Richards - one will be a Premier League winning captain and the other will struggle to get a game in the Championship. To sum up, I'd rather not waste the money.

14.) 27 Jul 2017 08:16:23
FFS, i'd rather have Keith Richards.

15.) 27 Jul 2017 09:28:12
Just passing on what I have heard, not sure about contracts and what not yet as it hasn't got to that stage. Very good chance we can get him at this point wether we want him or not. I'm not keen but will have faith in the manager.

16.) 27 Jul 2017 12:57:19
jacamar - i'd rather have cliff? oh hang on that sounds a bit dodgy :)

17.) 27 Jul 2017 13:47:31
I'd rather have Mica Paris!

{Ed033's Note - You beat Rogie Red to that one, Phil.

18.) 27 Jul 2017 16:57:00
He did! 😭😭😭.

19.) 27 Jul 2017 23:35:17
That one was "My One Temptation! " 😂😂😂.



26 Jul 2017 18:21:25
Darikwa has now been announced.




25 Jul 2017 08:31:41
Signing Dikwara from Burnley tomorrow it looks like.


1.) 25 Jul 2017 08:51:50
Darikwa you mean?

2.) 25 Jul 2017 08:56:22
Is this rumour like most of your other ones, mate?

Really can't see this happening I'm afraid.

3.) 25 Jul 2017 08:59:07
id be lying if i said i wasnt disappointed.

4.) 25 Jul 2017 10:41:33
Can't believe this rumour, this player is not good enough.

5.) 25 Jul 2017 11:06:54
Yeah Darikwa don't know how my phone changed it to that 😂

LDN red yeah like my Britt to Boro, info on Mahoney deal, grant to county and info on Greek lad. All coming from same source and it's been pretty good so far pal 👍🏻

Don't like it don't read it. I'm only passing on what I am hearing from them.

6.) 25 Jul 2017 11:46:53
With all this negativity it seems Dik Wara is well named?

7.) 25 Jul 2017 15:30:05
Could be some truth. Journalist Alan Nixon says we are signing a right back soon. Will have to wait and see.

8.) 25 Jul 2017 17:35:20
I don't know much about him other than what I've read but the Nottingham links make him an obvious rumour plus he was supposedly being used by Burnley to sweeten any deal they attempted for Britt. I know a few seasons back he was being linked with a lot of premier league teams. Everton, West ham, West Brom, Leicester and even Man U at one point.

9.) 25 Jul 2017 18:19:23
25yo, very fast apparently. Good cover for Lichaj. May even take his place. Who knows? Hopefully he does well for us #COYR.

10.) 25 Jul 2017 18:42:28
to be fair to mystic red from everything that I've read it looks like he might be right about darikwa signing tomorow.

11.) 25 Jul 2017 20:17:24
Looking like the deal could be on.

12.) 25 Jul 2017 20:46:13
Bardsley gone to Burnley today so probably going to happen.
One in one out?

13.) 25 Jul 2017 21:54:16
There is a right back who is meant to be having a medical tomorrow, but it isn't Tendayi Darikwa.

14.) 25 Jul 2017 22:11:22
care to tell us who it is alberto?

15.) 25 Jul 2017 22:17:23
According to Paul Taylor it's Darikwa, tweeted half hour ago.
Just saying.

16.) 25 Jul 2017 22:22:40
We have an injury to a right back then, do we.

17.) 25 Jul 2017 22:54:25
Brit to boro was reported on a number of online publications at the same time you reported on here; Bouchalakis was obviously going to sign a loan deal; grant to county was the most blatantly obvious thing that could've happened - anyone could've said that, it made perfect sense.

What I wouldn't do I damn anyone who posts on here but please don't have a go at someone who rightly questions the validity of some rumours.

You've reported a mix or twitter conjecture and personal predictions as far as I can see.

Having said that - this is the right place for all of that so don't let me stop you being Mystic.

18.) 25 Jul 2017 23:25:34
Darikwa signing for 1 million according to taylor;so whichever way you look at it Mystic looks like being right.

19.) 26 Jul 2017 00:19:29
If he is right then fair play to him and there's nothing more to say than well done.

Does get under my skin a little when posters argumentatively defend themselves instead of welcoming the discussion.

If he signs - let's give the lad a chance. I know a few of us, myself included, had our doubts about Darikwa.

20.) 26 Jul 2017 06:01:52
LDN. You say it gets under your skin when postets argumentatively defend themselves, it works both ways some posters are sometimes argumentative in their response to a post instead of simply giving their reasons why they disagree with a post, sometimes they call it fishing, and sometimes they call it banter but at the end of the day it amounts to being argumentative.

21.) 26 Jul 2017 08:18:51
I will eat humble pie! When I asked the question directly yesterday, I was told NOT Darikwa. Within seconds, Paul Taylor had posted.

I understood Burnley wouldn't sell to us due to Britt transfer and going to Boro'. Sounds like they always intended to sell Darikwa.

Fair play to Mystic.

22.) 26 Jul 2017 08:27:49
Darikwa has bags of potential. Can play right back / wing back, right midfield or as defender midfielder. Good signing. Someone posted the links to Premier League clubs a couple of years ago before he signed for Burnley.

Does anyone get the feeling MW buying in younger talent to make the more senior players step up?!

Example - I wouldn't have expected Vellios to score 5 goals in pre season, would now be the first player on the team sheet for me. Could this mean, interest in another striker may have cooled?

23.) 26 Jul 2017 09:44:26
How many strikers do we need? Surely we can't be looking at anymore.

We have 5 plus Walker, not sure if he is going on loan again.

24.) 26 Jul 2017 09:46:31
Certainly worth some thought.
Pisses me off when fans instantly dislike a player, or when they consider them inferior.
Let MW and his team decide who they want and back them, until they show themselves to be a let down.
You can't do that until they've kicked the ball around a few times for us. Give players a chance.
Remember the squad of misfights that BC and PT put together some years back?

25.) 26 Jul 2017 09:54:57
Quote from NEP

Burnley fan here. Seriously Tendayi Darikwa is a very good player and many Clarets' fans are sorry to see him leave. It was only because of the fact that Matt Lawton put in some Serling performances week in week out, that he's been out of the team. The only reason Burnley are selling is because we've signed Bardsley and Darikwa has only one year left on his contract. This guy is gem and his first game for us he was MoM. Believe me Forest fans, this player will add significantly to your team. Thanks Tendayi, you never put a foot wrong in a Clarets' shirt and many of us loved seeing your style of play. Good luck son with the double Champions of Europe and a great club to boot.

26.) 26 Jul 2017 12:55:27
Gingerkid - A few weeks ago, MW wanted to offload Vellios. I can't see that now, was the point of my post.

Interesting seeing Paul Taylor's question to MW re; Vellios, still not sure if MW is convinced!?

I'd expect Walker to be given a chance for August and then go on short term loan, meaning we'd be back down to 4, plus Ward.

27.) 26 Jul 2017 13:39:06
Vellios was with the Greek squad in Greece, which provoked that rumour.
He wasn't moving back there, people were putting 2 and 2 together because the test of the squad had reported back and he posted a picture in Greece.
So he wasn't being offloaded.

Lewis Baker is signing today by the looks of it.


1.) 01 Aug 2017 10:34:36
Loan or perm?

2.) 01 Aug 2017 10:41:10
Good player but not the biggest at 6ft but hopefully be a good signing coyr.

3.) 01 Aug 2017 11:22:20
66. What do you consider a minimum height requirement.

4.) 01 Aug 2017 11:31:27
6ft is bigger than the average U.K. Make so you can't moan that he's small?

5.) 01 Aug 2017 11:52:40

{Ed033's Note - It might be "Make", when the A.I. robots takeover.

6.) 01 Aug 2017 11:57:12
I'd be delighted but amazed if we land him, even at 5'8"!

7.) 01 Aug 2017 12:02:40
66, I think the required height is 6 foot 5 by all accounts for any further signings.
Especially with "shorty Smith "in goal. lol. 😂😂😂.

8.) 01 Aug 2017 12:03:25
It will only be a loan as he's just signed a new contract at Chelsea. They are looking to loan him out for up to 2 years.

9.) 01 Aug 2017 12:19:44
2 year loan could be good, but depends on the terms, and conditions. I have never heard of such a lengthy loan before.

10.) 01 Aug 2017 12:26:58
If he could emulate the form he showed for the England u21's this summer then he would be an amazing signing. I find it hard to believe that there aren't premier league clubs ahead of us in the queue though.

11.) 01 Aug 2017 12:55:01
Paul McKenna didn't seem to let height bother him at 5' 7", hope he comes to us.

12.) 01 Aug 2017 13:26:05
Well done getting enough words together in order to do 2 liner posts! Ha-ha.

13.) 01 Aug 2017 13:52:17
Bendtner was 6ft 4 didn't make him put any effort in!

14.) 01 Aug 2017 13:53:48
Yep red, keep my post nice and short, beats doing full pages of fanciful nonsense that you eloquently write. 😁😁😁.

15.) 01 Aug 2017 14:24:49
2 Years is a long loan spell 'A Bright Future' but he's just come back from a 2 year loan at Vitesse Arnhem.

16.) 01 Aug 2017 17:51:59
Nope certain people on here was saying on here a bit ago saying our centre backs where to small I was only stating what people had said about small centre half's if you actually read what I put I also stated he's a very good player and I for one would like to see him here, in a previous message I argued that centre backs don't need to be massive I got absolutely slated short memory on here.

17.) 01 Aug 2017 19:53:49
66. Can you remember who slated you?



17 Jul 2017 13:03:09
Britt is going to Middlesbrough for s medical and to discuss terms, have a look around etc.

Still doesn't mean he will sign for them but he will be there today and tomorrow by the looks of it.


1.) 17 Jul 2017 13:52:07
If it's true the club should issue a statement saying they have reluctantly accepted a bid and he's having a medical.
We shouldn't be hearing it from Paul Taylor whose getting his info from another journalist.

2.) 17 Jul 2017 14:19:05
To be fair I posted this before Taylor's story again.

Genuinely think that guy gets all his 'reports' from here and social media and pretends he's actually done some research 🤔.

3.) 17 Jul 2017 14:22:13
Mystic - so true the man is just a story scrounger.

He might not pass his medical yet!

4.) 17 Jul 2017 14:30:53
Ain't that the truth the rest of his article is a repeat of a repeat that he "wrote"a week ago.
Not disputing your info, just saying the club should issue a statement.
They issued one about ariyibi.



19 Jun 2017 07:26:17
Fulham had told forest they want £7m for McDonald now. Player is keen on a move to forest, club want him and he's been speaking to us but fulhams valuation will be a stumbling block. Unless we can negotiate or include a deadwood player then this one might not happen.


1.) 19 Jun 2017 08:32:41
How much did we pay for BA £5-5m, he is a natural goal scorer. ba is also younger than him, so at £7m Fulham can now keep their unsettled player.



18 Jun 2017 11:50:42
Boro have now come in with an 11th hour approach for Mahoney. Deal all but done to forest but they will be able to offer him a bigger wage and a better prospect at promotion so we will have to wait and see what happens.


1.) 18 Jun 2017 12:14:53
Rubbishy the article says borough COULD come in with an eleventh hour bid cheap tack journalism.

2.) 18 Jun 2017 18:08:57
We only want players that want to come to improve not players hawking themselves around for the best deal!



01 Feb 2017 06:12:57
I am guessing we didn't get chambers then? He played last night so doubt he would have time to sign for us.

He is a decent player at this level and knows the squad, for me it would make sense but I guess the new man will have his own ideas and players he will want to pursue.

Asking the same question but rewording it, if you were at work and your boss comes in and says "look you are not really needed here so for the next 3 years you can either chill out at your desk not doing a lot, just scrolling through Facebook and going on sikipedia and we will still pay you your full wage or you can move to a smaller company, work your arse off and get paid half the money we are paying you."

What would you do?
