Sport Now saying although AK has denied making a bid for Clayton we are working behind the scenes to get him, any Reds got any positive thoughts on it βš“

Portland Red

1.) 19 Jan 2018 17:52:44
A positive player if we can sign him and a likely captain.

2.) 19 Jan 2018 21:11:20
I still think his wages will be to high for AK's budget. Can't see it.

3.) 19 Jan 2018 21:37:06
He's on 25k a week and has a contract till 2021 apparently?
Can you honestly see us competing with that?
If we want to get to the premiership then we will have to compete and give karanka a real chance of achieving it,the shackles will have to come off.

4.) 21 Jan 2018 08:31:03
He'd be an excellent addition but like already mentioned he'll be on too much for us. Hope I'm wrong though and we can get him.



15 Jan 2018 17:03:49
Seems we are looking at Niklas Hult can play left back or left midfield, seems to be a steady basic left man, just what we need βš“

Portland Red

1.) 15 Jan 2018 19:55:47
Get fellow countryman Pinillos back AK.

2.) 15 Jan 2018 20:28:50
Pillions is injured again.

3.) 15 Jan 2018 20:58:32

Some Forest Fans love injury prone players, it does not matter how good they are, injury prone means stay away at all costs when they are not your player.

4.) 15 Jan 2018 23:49:22
Jokic is the quick fix for me at full back?



28 Dec 2017 11:04:33
I am wondering why the NP and Sara Clapson do not question the total absence of Vellios surely questions from local papers and radio stations would get a response from the management also his strange team selections 😈

Portland Red

1.) 28 Dec 2017 12:02:12
Must win at weekend. Would still like to see same manager come end of season. i still believe mw is the right man given time to be rid of the dead wood he's got at his arsenal. Much need performance on sat coyr.

2.) 28 Dec 2017 14:51:48
I,ve said it and I,ve said it but been derided ,the local media always giving Nottm. Forest such an easy ride is one of the reasons we,ve been so long in the wilderness ,good journalism should be constructive and address sticky points not just kiss a--- like they do ,,Colin Fray the main culprit.



27 Dec 2017 19:48:09
Sport site saying we are interested in a striker called Mimoun Mahi, why!!! we have enough perfectly good strikers, it is CM and DMs we need once they are sorted MW can play the ball out of defence to our front men, in my opinion if he can't sort that out then it is going to be a long 4 months 😈

Portland Red

1.) 27 Dec 2017 20:05:44
Old news Portland,he's a been on that site for last six months.
Won't happen take no notice.

2.) 27 Dec 2017 20:26:57
Apparently there's a striker called velious who I'd be more interested in seeing in a forest shirt rather than Mahi

3.) 27 Dec 2017 20:54:05
Just reading an article slating Daryl Murphy???
Scored 7 stuck up front and isolated and still getting sh*t?
While we play Warbo' s rules we will never have an attacking threat

4.) 27 Dec 2017 20:54:42
Johnny is that the same Velious ,Greek international striker,that can’t get a game in a struggling championship side,that can’t buy a goal. Just saying.

5.) 27 Dec 2017 21:33:41
Yes that's the one Red 5 goals pre season then never had a sniff probably part of the work in progress pmsl

6.) 27 Dec 2017 21:45:30
I've just read a quote what MW has stated bereton Cummings and Walker could be the 20 goal a season we need has no one told him it helps if you play them up front just proves he hasn't a clue

7.) 27 Dec 2017 22:44:12
Would love to sit down with some of the 'No plan B' uttering and Warburton hating fans on here over a stat and fact based pint.

Honestly drives me crazy how some people aren’t able to see that MW has done the best with the squad he has. He’s not been allowed a whole year yet and people turn on him already. He needs at least two more windows to actually have a squad capable of challenging for anywhere near the top 6.

These people shouting 'Warburton Out' are the same lot who were screaming for stability and continuity 18 months ago.

8.) 27 Dec 2017 23:35:12
Lnd red cudnt agree more,but according to some,there's a new messiah to take us forward in the form of monk.
Might be a good fit with our budget of bread and water,when the last club provided him with a kings ransom.

9.) 28 Dec 2017 00:10:46
Why did MW not address the obvious frailties defensively we all witnessed last season and he himself saw in the last 9 games?

10.) 28 Dec 2017 00:31:28
He tried to sign two goalkeepers one failed the other got injured before he kicked a ball for us.
He tried to sign a defender from Brentford who join Harry's expensive jigsaw instead.
We have a director of football who takes care of most of this,you can't blame the manager if he identifies a target and the director can't bring him in within the budget,
We are only six months into this process and was the reason managers have turned us down in the past for not having a director of football.
Don't lay all the blame at the manager and just accept it's a new regime who have set a budget and both mcparland and warbo have to work to those restraints.
It was never going to be a quick fix,you can't build without solid foundations.

11.) 28 Dec 2017 02:38:30
So they did fail to address our obvious weaknesses before the start of the season then.

12.) 28 Dec 2017 09:19:04
Yes perks, but not for the want of trying.

He has had one window and less than a year to turn around a decade or more of decline.

Still think that impatience within the fan base is a big problem at our club. I understand it to a point, but it is a problem.

Part of the crowd problem has been numbers of bums on seats. We are improving in that regard. We still need to be more positive.

The Shef Wed game was appalling, but he did try to play with our future stars. They just didn’t do the business on the day. On chances created 4:1 would have been a fair score at half time.
The penalty was a penalty, but if referees were consist there would be 10 penalties a game if man handling players at corners was penalised

13.) 28 Dec 2017 09:56:22
Absolutely agree. .Six months ago the club was on its knees. rock bottom with a clown as owner.
Short memories!!!

14.) 28 Dec 2017 10:13:27
Wishey, yes he played our "future stars" as you say. Brereton has proven over the last few games that he is more effective through the centre but gets put out on the wing while Walker seemed to be doing well on the wing and he pushed him up top by himself?
Treore who is an excellent left back stays on the bench while a midfield player is at left back?
Do you not find this strange?

15.) 28 Dec 2017 10:14:45
I agree wishey they had chances and didn't take them which begs the question, where was the big man? And I don't mean santa! As some rightly point out we appear to have spent 2 million on Murphy and he can't play Saturday/Tuesday games together.If this is true a decent signing now looks a bad signing to me and we should have stuck with the kids up front and used that money to ensure we secured our Goalkeeper and defensive targets in the summer.These were the priorities as we all knew.

16.) 28 Dec 2017 11:04:02
Osbourne in defence Bereton on the wing velious on the bench and you still think he is the man for the job why can't we ever get a manager that knows his best 11 sticks with it in the same positions and keep it simple 4 4 2 rome wasn't built in a day and he has tried a new style too quickly instead of implementing it over night phase it in play to the strengths of the players he has instead of trying to make them something there not

17.) 28 Dec 2017 15:14:52
Future stars my a***. Wake up.

After 56 years of supporting Forest through the good times and the bad times i think these last 2/3 seasons have been one of the worst bad times, all of the uncertainty and the hope of better times has made me give up hope of Forest ever being anything but a joke in football circles, so i am sadly withdrawing my support and taking my full support to Weymouth Terra's.
P. S. The wally with the brolly is looking for a club to buy πŸ˜βš“

Portland Red



03 Feb 2018 19:24:33
Again Vellios nearly the man of the day, i reckon drop Brereton to the bench he couldn't score in a house of ill repute and start Vellios samples βš“

Portland Red

1.) 03 Feb 2018 19:50:31
Berereton would probably be better in a 4-4-2, or 3-5-2. A lone striker he is not.

2.) 03 Feb 2018 19:51:15
He’s a doughnut 🍩 we need better strikers or the midfield to start scoring worst strike force we’ve hadn’t had in ages

3.) 03 Feb 2018 20:20:38
It was an opportunity of his own making though,we have to create Chances for the striker.
Even with the signings we don't have the players to play this system,they're not good enough.
He is far to rigid in not being prepared to try different formations.
Thought he got team selection wrong as well.
Smith did nothing wrong against Preston and got dropped.
Manciene was woefully was fox Dowell and Osborn,but they all kept their places and darikwa should not of been on the coach never mind the bench.
Going to need another clearout in summer and bringplayers in to suit his system,because he won't deviate from one up.

4.) 03 Feb 2018 21:28:27
Maybe at home, next time? Please AK. πŸ˜€

5.) 03 Feb 2018 23:10:35
One up home or away even if we're 2 or 3 nil down the system will remain the same.
You would think with all the backroom staff,ie first team analyst and assistant first team analyst,that one of them would see it's not working?



03 Feb 2018 12:54:11
HITC sport reckon Watson is undergoing a medical today, another ace signing βš“

Can AK link Lolley into shape for Sat's game πŸ˜πŸ˜βš“

Portland Red

1.) 01 Feb 2018 18:53:20
Hopefully he can produce a goal "Feast" 🍭

2.) 01 Feb 2018 19:05:01
My boy lollipop he made my heart go giddy up , hope so anyway!

3.) 02 Feb 2018 03:10:20
Let's hope he has magnums in his boots πŸ˜‹

4.) 02 Feb 2018 12:47:42
I think Lolley will be a star and think Tomlin will too.
I expect the team to line up something like.

Lichij Worrall. Tobias. Colback
Cash. Guedioura. Osbourne. Lolley

Vaughan /Watson

Maybe Mr Marinakis could help us out with a left back, Olympiakos has a Croatian left back not getting much game time called Hrvoje Milic he's a International so could do a job for us βš“

Not a bad call Gazzared, 4 times at Olympiakos did well each time but sadly lost the dressing room and his defensive record in the Champions league (not wanting to lose) still i reckon Marinakis likes him, we will just have to wait and see 😈

I think Dowell looked good in a poor defence and now he has been found out AK should rest him or return to sender,Mancienne couldn't captain a pedalo at Skeggy, i think Karanka will come good he just needs to integrate Watson etc into the side, let's not panic YET πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™βš“

Reports from Wales online saying Traore had a really good game at left back for Cardiff only made two small mistakes and provided the cross for one of there goals, must be something about Warnock βš“
