WE can't seriously be thinking of spending 13m on a 21year old midfielder who's only ever played in Portugal. Also untried in championship. When theirs players who are proven championship players for less money. but if we going to spend upto 50m.
Who should we be going for.
Gk pants hart
Lb Clarke. Or friend
Centre midfield leadbitter or Clayton
Wingers tomlin Maddison
2 Forwards from these
Defoe, inggs afobe grabbon Marriott
What's your view.

if we spend 50mil to try and go up and spend it on players like clayton and leadbitter my season tickets going in the trent. alright carvalho and goncalves might not be experienced in the championship but surely at some point the class of these players is a bigger factor than championship experience.

2.) 03 Jun 2018 22:39:41
Forest can't win can they most of last season fans were saying we need quality players and they don't come cheap so now it appears that we are now prepaired to do just that and that is no good either make your minds trickie fans 😤

3.) 03 Jun 2018 22:43:58
Afobe has rejoined Wolves. I'd take the Peterborough lads and maybe Grabban but none of the others

4.) 03 Jun 2018 22:48:26
More chance of a White Christmas with that line up bar the lads stepping up a league with something to prove!

5.) 03 Jun 2018 23:34:54
Just saying 13m on one player This money plus a little more would totally turn us into contenders.
Without gambling on a 21 year old who's never played in championship.

6.) 04 Jun 2018 13:56:31
You say not tried and tested in the champ then mention Marriot and Maddison!how many games have they played in the championship?just as many havnt they?

7.) 05 Jun 2018 02:30:34
Look at the clubs that have gone up in recent years, they all buy a couple of ‘risky young foreigners’ and a few ‘has been experienced’ Championship maybe PL players and a few ‘great at League One but. ’ lads!
Wolves as an example last year bought several Portuguese (Neves and Jota being the most effective and Barry Douglas who was playing in Turkey as well as a few Spainish and German league players as well as Solid experience in Ruddy and Ryan Bennett and a few young League one lads like Stevenson from Coventry. They had a big squad but it worked, Fulham and Cardiff had similar setups as did Huddersfield and Brighton the year before!
Personally if we get the two young Portuguese lads, Maddison and Marriot from Peterborough, Clarke from Hull , Colback, Tomlin and a Keeper and retain the likes of Cash, Worrall, Tobias, Lichij, Watson, Brereton and Lolley we will look strong especially if we can pick up Souldani or Grabban too and even keep Osbourn!

With us signing the 2 benfica lads. Can't see us going for tomlin and Maddison.
So that leaves us needing
Goalkeeper pants will do.
Left back Clarke
Centre midfielder i'd like Clayton
2 forwards possibly soudani Marriott.
Who would be happy with that.
Hope these benfica boys can hack the physical side of championship and are better than expected.

Pearce is god

1.) 13 Jun 2018 21:17:25
They both look solid lads. Not weedy scottish dwarves. I think AK must have done a lot of homework on them to splash this much dosh.

2.) 13 Jun 2018 21:48:09
Bearing in mind Marinakis hasn’t spent more than 6.5 million on a player this guy must be good to be basically double his previously biggest spend. Hopefully they’ll both turn out to be great signings!

3.) 13 Jun 2018 22:19:14
I would like our squad to look something like this by time season kicks off and think we would have options to play both a 4-3-3, 3-5-1 or 3-4-3 depending on game.

New Keeper
Tobias Fig
New Centre Midfielder
New Striker

Plus kids

That’s 24 man squad plus 4 kids. I would be happy if it was roughly like that.

4.) 13 Jun 2018 22:58:08
Can’t see Osborn staying so if probably replace him with either Colback or marney. Then I’d rather have Maddison over Tomlin dut to husband versatility (don’t get me wrong I think Tomlin is a very good player)

5.) 14 Jun 2018 09:47:56
It's a bit early to write to Santa?🤣🤣🤣

6.) 14 Jun 2018 09:34:57
Red rascal.
Nice squad but Uve got us signing 3 forwards lol. I wouldn't sign Hutton past it. And I'd sell bouch

7.) 14 Jun 2018 12:10:49
What is life without dreams boys!!!! Haha 🤣



13 Jun 2018 14:37:26
We looking to bring in 2 forwards. Out of list below who would you want?
I've narrowed my preference down to 2 of these 4.
Marriott. If it was cash plus players
Defoe could still score loads in championship
Ings. Who is over his injurys and proven championship scorer
Grabbon who's proven at championship level.

Pearce is god

1.) 13 Jun 2018 15:15:26
It's going to be grabbon

2.) 13 Jun 2018 16:43:29
Grabben and Marriott.

3.) 13 Jun 2018 16:53:49
I’d quite like Hugill and Grabban. Hugill because he’s a bit more of a target striker but without more pace and Grabban is a proven scorer in this league.

4.) 13 Jun 2018 19:21:40
Bizarrely Marriot and Soudani because they both have something to prove in the Championship. The others have done it and may not be as motivated. Just an observation.

5.) 13 Jun 2018 19:30:26
All seems to have gone quiet on the Peterborough pair at the moment. Anybody heard owt ??

6.) 14 Jun 2018 09:40:26
They've been turned down as double act .
Fry and mcanthony have failed the auditions for del boy and Rodney.

7.) 14 Jun 2018 09:43:55
My opinion but I don't reckon we will get marriott due the price Peterborough have valued him at?
Grabban looks more like the realists option.
With the price of the Portugal player that may have a deficit on what we pay for a striker.
Marinakis I hope is a smart man and realises the league cannot be brought by splashing the cash.
Yes it worked for wolves but not villa.
As we all know it's a massive gamble trying to emulate wolves and I hasten to say if Krankie doesn't achieve the expectations of marinakis or walk the walk he will be out the hot seat.
I hope he buys well and takes forest up.
The next few weeks will be an interesting time to see who comes and who goes.... Come on you reds. 😁😁😁😁😁😉😉



10 Jun 2018 11:44:12
Plenty of talk bout potential new players. But what work is being done to get shut of these.
Henderson darikwa? Manchienne troare
Ward Cummings mackay clough walker
Murphy grant ect
Apparently we've been offered 5m for osbourne we should sell. With new players coming in. He will be bench warmer.

Pearce is god

1.) 10 Jun 2018 12:29:24
We won’t be selling darikwa, AK seems to like him

2.) 10 Jun 2018 20:56:15
That's worrying as he didn't come from Scotland??🤣



04 Jun 2018 19:41:28
We al think we're managers but let's put it to test. With who we are apparently after. Our owners will be spending big.
But let's say 20m. Who would you go for.
Panto 500k/ 1m or Westwood from Wednesday for me. 2m
Friend from borough 1.5m left back
Clayton 3m centre midfield
Tomlin 2/ 3m winger
Maddison 2m winger
Marriott 4/ 5m centre
Defoe 2m. Or ings loan over his injuries but won't get look in at Liverpool.

Pearce is god

1.) 04 Jun 2018 20:49:43
I’d personally like to see a good champ keeper like Westwood join, someone out the mold of Lee Camp, who was an absolute revelation for us. I’d go for friend and Gunter to complete what would be an excellent defence . Beyond that I’ve no idea what I’d do as I’m not sure what forwards for the AK mantra. Signing forwards is what makes or breaks clubs, especially at our level when every penny spent has to count. Rather him than me !

2.) 05 Jun 2018 02:40:16
Danny Ward from Liverpool on loan with 4m deal at end of season.
Clarke from Hull would be a nominal fee (500k) decided by FA as is under 23 but out of contract.
Colback 2m.
Goncalves loan with 20m perminate if we go up.
Oztumer from Walsall 2m
Luango from QPR 4m
Maddison 2m
Tomlin 1.5m
Marriot 4m
Souldani 2m

That what I would like but think it looks likely we will get the Porteguese lad Cavelho for around 13m and so doubt we would look at Oztumer or Luango then and I don’t think we will go in for Danny Ward either and will either go for Pants or maybe someone like Sam Johnston but I think Ward would be great!

3.) 05 Jun 2018 05:20:39
I think oztumer is out of contract so he is up for free don't quote me on that but I think I read it somewhere

4.) 05 Jun 2018 06:45:46
id like us to sign,

rui Patricio in goal - free
cooper from millwall, cb 2.5m?
Clarke left back - hull free (tribunal)
Marriott forward - peterboro 5m

anyone else is a bonus but we need players out aswell.

5.) 05 Jun 2018 07:15:05
Patricio would be a very good signing!

6.) 05 Jun 2018 07:25:55
GK - Pants or Westwood no more that 1.5 mil
CB maybe - Jansen (Leeds good CB) 3 mil
LB - Clark free
CDM - Clayton (3 mil)
Winger - Maddison (4/3 mil)
Striker - Marriott (4 mil) and Abel Hernandez (free)
Then i wouldn’t mind if we signed the Portuguese lads on a loan for a season or two to help us get promoted and then have the option to buy at the end of the loan!

7.) 05 Jun 2018 13:44:46
M.I.b are here 2star so can't answer your questions I did try

8.) 05 Jun 2018 13:45:08
I'd certainly like to see something better than pants.
Like a goalie that catches the ball??

9.) 05 Jun 2018 13:47:08
Pearce is God.
You should be an agemt?
Got if all sorted apart from the ridulas wages that go with the underestimated cost of transfers.
All this talk of spending 50 mill is far wide of the mark .

10.) 05 Jun 2018 16:49:04
Ff799 how do you know what will happen?? Seems to me there are 1 or 2 on here who like to knock anything anyone else says but never give an inkling of how they see the club moving forward , skegsjay didn’t think the last manager got enough time, and would now like to see this manager given even less than his man warburton, Ff799 not really having a go , saw that poll about you being sheep and thought it was ridiculous,

11.) 05 Jun 2018 17:18:17
Stevie it's just banter.
If all these names being bandied about were true we'd be spending 100 mill.
Personally don't think we'll spend big at all and can't see much happening till July with incoming transfers.
To bring in a lot of new faces requires us to offload at least 7 or 8 players first and I would think that being worked on just as hard as incoming transfers.
If we can't shift some first it will have an effect on how many come in,it's pretty much that simple.

12.) 05 Jun 2018 18:43:30
Ff799 to get rid of some of the dead wood we’ve been saddled think we will finish up giving most away. I actually think we wouldn’t need to spend these figures to get out this league it would be overkill this is a poor league and only competitive because the majority of teams are as poor as each other

13.) 06 Jun 2018 10:20:58
Stevie it's all about a team effort and confidence and the right blend.
Totally agree most sides are poor,but it's the manager that blends the team and gives them confidence.
You can spend all you like, but it will never work if the orchestra has a bus conducter waving the magic wand? 😂



03 Jun 2018 18:12:12
Hope not 13m on a 21 year old benfica midfielder. Who probably struggle in championship. Save some money Leadbitter or Clayton and spend rest buying a couple of proven forwards.

Pearce is god

1.) 03 Jun 2018 20:40:33
Yes let’s have another couple of plodders like leadbetter and. Clayton , ain’t it about time we had some exciting players at the city ground.the way people are carrying on you would think they were paying personally surely we can leave it to the owner to work out the club budget he’s more experienced than any of us in running football clubs

2.) 03 Jun 2018 21:32:09
In karanka ☝we trust 😆

3.) 03 Jun 2018 22:18:23
Exciting yes.
13 mill for a b team player?
I know it worked for wolves,but they bought in a manager who took the game to the opposition and played three up and wing backs.
Can't see that happening with Karanka??
Too big a gamble all day long.

4.) 03 Jun 2018 22:47:37
Ff799 wasn’t talking about these particular deals because I don’t know enough about the players,more the intent of the owner as for the manager neither you or I know that given a different type of squad he wouldn’t employ different I said before the jury is out on the manager for me.but i’ Prepared to give him a chance,as for the money let the owners worry about that they have run olympicos well enough,i am guessing that’s 1 more football club than you or I have run

Jack hunt was a good right back. Pearce wanted to sign him permanently but no funds.
Wednesday are apparently skint.
We should try and get him back

Too old no better than Erick.
Why don't we go for the right back Pearce had on loan
Alan hunt I think was his name. He looked good

These forwards could be available for right money
Marriott ings Defoe bamford hernendes
Rhoades kodiga hogan Britt soudani. To name a few.
We defo need to sign 2. i'd go Marriott looks good but might struggle to step up. And I'd go for Danny ings over his injuries but will never get in Liverpool team.
He ripped championship up when at Burnley.
Maybe loan with view to permanent.

Gazza red. I would only sign Marriott for 3m plus adding and let them have Murphy and clough. Or walker
I don't know why we haven't gone in for Danny ing. Over his injuries and is only going to be bench warmer for Liverpool he scored over 30 for Burnley when they won league. Maybe we could get him on loan.

We're looking at getting to prem. vydra can't do it in prem.
So if we signed vydra we could be stuck with him on high salary.
I'd sooner go for Marriott but offer them cash plus players.

Having thought bout osbourne I'd keep him unless a bid of 7/8m was offered and in today's market he should fetch that. But agree we need deadwood shifting first.

Nobody knows if Marriott can cut it in championship.
For less or same money we could buy someone who as done it in championship.
I would not be offering 6m cash for him.
We should offer posh 3m plus some of our deadwood
Likes of walker grant clough Murphy ect

Agree but after those 2. We've only got geddy who's past it. Cash and osbourne who are too lightweight.
So I'd like another midfielder signed.
Either Clayton or leadbitter.
