Red James

i think we can expect a big summer

2.) 14 Jun 2018 21:07:05
99, no Summer only lasts three months.

3.) 14 Jun 2018 21:28:36
On Forest site now along with them wearing new kit !

4.) 14 Jun 2018 21:35:22
Can we just have a hot summer??
Be nice for a change??

5.) 14 Jun 2018 22:04:18
Not sure about the away kit the guy in the middle is wearing??

6.) 14 Jun 2018 22:15:27
New signings red hot! New kit tepid!

7.) 15 Jun 2018 02:07:55
Ff that's tomlin in middle lol

8.) 15 Jun 2018 06:28:32
799, it all depends, we have a Portuguese summer instead of a Indian summer.



04 Jun 2018 14:46:58
So posh have said Marriott can go for 4 mill now I'm guessing because of the lack of offers price is looking more reasonable.

Red James

1.) 04 Jun 2018 16:57:02
Reasonable?!?!??! £4m for player that has had one decent season in League 1. . Huge gamble for me!!!

2.) 04 Jun 2018 17:47:26
Every potential signing comes with an element of gamble.I don't think that £4mil for Marriot fits into "huge" category. There has been recent speculation regarding signings I do consider to be of that type. For example older players with a history of serious injuries! Marinakis is no mug and neither is Karanka. In business it is sometimes necessary to speculate to accumulate and it seems to me that that is where we are now. I for one am absolutely buzzing at the thought of it. We as fans have had to settle for mediocrity and worse!for far too long! You Reds ! ! ! !

3.) 04 Jun 2018 18:34:14
We'll said mate!!!

4.) 04 Jun 2018 19:32:20
In the current inflated market 4 mill isn't much at all I remember similar comments when we signed britt

5.) 04 Jun 2018 21:15:52
It has to be better than sitting on our hands all through the summer,and ending up with the likes of Embicilio,and Darius Henderson!!!

6.) 04 Jun 2018 21:40:31
£4m is a lot of money for a one season wonder at a lower level.

It is in my opinion anyway.

However I look forward to us making signings and the two who Wolves tried to sign last year who we are now linked with Forest and are clients of Mendes excite me the most. If they are anywhere near Neves and Jota quality then we will be a serious force next season.
20/1 to win the league and 13/2 to be promoted.

7.) 05 Jun 2018 06:19:25
The best thing about Darius Henderson was his right hook apparently.

8.) 05 Jun 2018 09:28:45
Red James it was alan Nixon who said they will sell for £4mill posh’s owner has said no they won’t they will sell for more than that

9.) 05 Jun 2018 13:46:55
Come on North Notts 4 mill is too much for Marriott?,but 13 mill is ok for a player whose playing at an even lower level??
Don't be fooled by the price tag??

10.) 05 Jun 2018 13:49:36
North Notts Red are you FF in disguise?



28 May 2018 21:36:09
Am I missing something with tomlin or is he the over hyped over priced out of shape player I really see for near 3 mill I expect an athlete not a pub player with a good football brain.

Red James

1.) 28 May 2018 23:23:14
He is probably worth £2M in the shape he is in but if he shapes up he's a £5M player all day.

2.) 29 May 2018 00:08:33
As he is 29 now and has never been in shape yet I won't hold my breath lol

3.) 28 May 2018 23:55:37
Problem is he'll never be in a 5 million shape, and not worth anything until he gets to work on his fitness.
No excuse for any professional athlete to be unfit and expect to be paid handsomely.
Warnock won't want him, he's tried to get him fit and failed, 3 mill from us and he won't stop laughing.

4.) 29 May 2018 10:52:57
Warnock will be anxious to dump him and spend big since the owner at Cardiff has plenty of money. Whatever he can pick up for Tomlin will be a bonus. I don't think he will command a big fee, but I also don't believe he is the answer to all our midfield problems, and will be used alternately with other players yet to arrive.

5.) 29 May 2018 14:34:30
I happened to see him in KFC the other day. I was behind him when he asked "Can I have a Family Bucket please??" The assistant asked "what size sir??" He replied "the one on the roof!!" 😎😎😎😂😂😂

6.) 29 May 2018 15:58:08
Karanka obviously rates Tomlin as he was at Middlesbrough with him . He clearly knows what makes him tick. To do that requires man management skills. I say he's worth the gamble ,but for £2million maximum! If AK gets him up to speed his potential sell on fee is totally irrelevant.

7.) 29 May 2018 16:11:26
Yet Andy Reid was loved by most.he was out of shape but could pass a ball and had a decent shot on 750k more than Murphy he’s a snip at that price

8.) 29 May 2018 16:13:46
Rogie Red, then he would have been off to the nearest Krispy Kreme for his sweet tooth fix.

9.) 29 May 2018 21:12:56
I know he’s not liked but Commons was unplayable on his day too. And didn’t robbo got voted out best player? And what about Gazza ? A genius with the ball. FF is bang on he will never be an athlete but sometimes I think that’s the problem in this country, we dismiss people if they don’t suit a profile. Who’s idea was it anyway to judge footballer as athletes instead of footballers. All that said I’m still not sure about Tomlin.



01 Feb 2018 10:55:13
Seen online comments that we're making panic signings with no plan like headless chickens. I thought all signings and rumoured close signings seemed quite decent, what happened to the 4.4 million we bid for a keeper, was it definite or a rumour? if it fell through be nice to get a striker for the same amount.

Red James

1.) 01 Feb 2018 12:04:05

Surely you can see with your own eyes that we do not get enough balls played forward into the final third and keep getting caught on the break? That is down to the midfield at both ends of the pitch causing our goal problem?

We now have some steel in midfield plus 2 very direct wide men to play on the front foot.

For me a cracking window of trading places?



13 Jan 2018 21:28:17
Interesting stat mentioned in the game our squad today was purchased by 5 different managers who bought them for different reasons and to play to play different styles, how many managers have had this defence now I can only see one constant and the same problem.

Red James

1.) 14 Jan 2018 09:18:10
Yes but Red James, we HAD to get rid of Warburton because we weren’t challenging for promotion. Can’t you see?

On a slightly more serious note - what could realistically have been expected of AK yesterday? He had less than a week to implement a new strategy with a ‘pick n mix’ squad.

2.) 14 Jan 2018 11:33:34
apart from Traore that defence was rock solid under Dougie Freedman.

3.) 14 Jan 2018 11:45:00
Under Freedman we only had Antonio with any freedom to go forward, the rest had to defend first, then run over acres of the pitch to get close to taking a shot, let alone in the oppositions 6 yard box.

4.) 14 Jan 2018 11:46:52
They never troubled us defensively yesterday.
Let's be honest. They hit the bar and scored a goal and that was it.

Unfortunately, there seems to be a desire to play with a defensive midfielder in every game for some unknown reason?

At home against teams who sit back and soak up pressure it would be better to play with two up front and organise the midfield better so we don't get countered.

How's about the midfield hold midfield for a change and the strikers try and kick the ball in the net.

Vaughan is our best player but he shouldn't be! He shouldn't even be playing when were at home!!!!

5.) 14 Jan 2018 14:00:32
I wasn't doubting MW sacking but until someone gets a good run in charge it will never change you could have the best manager in the world but without funds how can he shape the squad he wants I just can't see an end to this merry go round

6.) 14 Jan 2018 14:46:36
After avoiding relegation on goal difference anyone expecting a promotion challenge have there heads in the clouds

7.) 14 Jan 2018 15:17:42
The owners seem to think we should be top six with this squad?
I don't agree unless there is some investment in players or some wheeling and dealing.
Going to be an interesting few weeks till the widow closes.

8.) 14 Jan 2018 15:30:46
Under Freedman we defending as a team and I expect Karanka to install that in these players over the coming month but our midfield and forwards under MW didn’t track back enough even our fullbacks would bomb for Arsenal and not get back or get covered. It is one issue I have with Dowell though he is our best player at creating he is awful in any defensive way, McKay, Clough, Walker, Cummings are all poor at times tracking back. Cash and Osbourn make a big difference cause can push forward and have the energy to get back too and also means Vaughan can sit back in Centre too.
Under Monty and MW we didn’t defend as a team and this was difference when Brasil came in for Leeds and Arsenal we were solid as a team defensively and organised to defend as well as attack. Even yesterday we were better and Villa didn’t get many real chances but is still work to do.

9.) 14 Jan 2018 15:38:58
What defending did Antonio do, or did you not count him as part of the team? 😁 😁 😁 😁 😁.

10.) 14 Jan 2018 18:01:47
2 missing players yesterday from Dougies back 5. De Vries and Pinillos. Nuff said . .,

11.) 14 Jan 2018 18:26:44

A while back a poster said Pinillos has missed a lot of the season for his new club, how true that is i do not know, but if it is What Use Would He Have Been?

12.) 14 Jan 2018 18:30:28

13.) 14 Jan 2018 19:06:18
How true FF79, no point in pointing to players that have left when they are not playing much at their new clubs because of injuries.

14.) 14 Jan 2018 19:08:23
If freedman defence was rock solid ?how come we lost 22 games under him?

15.) 14 Jan 2018 19:42:17
Enough of this nonesence, #KarankaOut. There, I said it.

Also - pitching a new show to the BBC next week. “Fawaz’s Bank Balance” stars in an Apprentice style spinoff called “You’re Forest Fired”. Two managers sacked every episode. The sister show called “A club on it’s knees” presented by Dougie Freedman, who as usual, looks soaking wet.

16.) 14 Jan 2018 20:02:26
FF79 we've nearly lost 22 already and we are only half way through the season.

17.) 14 Jan 2018 20:01:31
LDN red very droll indeed again another Warburton patriarch rears it’s ugly head.
If you read my posts providing you can
read and I’m not talking about cockney slang I’m behind
I’m certain you are Warburtons twin as you are both spurs fans!
Next week we have a spin off series series of only fools and horses starring LND Red as Rodney and Mark Warburton as Delboy.

18.) 14 Jan 2018 20:27:49
Perks, exactly we weren't watertight then and we're not now.
Karankas needs a lot of funds to get us where he wants, some wheeling and dealing to get there.
Owners need to see were not top six, so back him now with at least three new recruits or we will carry on struggling.

19.) 14 Jan 2018 20:40:12
I knew you'd like being a krankie
I'm ready for a cup run ?
Krankie goes to Wembley ?

All this panic over left and right back and a keeper were clearly signing players and 100% will sign players in these positions just means it's taking more negotiation, or is the transfer window closing tonight, transfer market is always slow when the cup is on as teams are reluctant to sell in case they have a good run and there value increases, patience fellow reds I'm sure forest staff are the busiest in the league right now.

Red James

1.) 23 Jun 2018 11:53:44
Your right James.Absolute minimum of 4 still required.No panic. . yet 😂

2.) 23 Jun 2018 12:02:32
Red James, i think you are mixing up disappointment with panic, some people like certain players that have been linked to the club so if a player they like goes somewhere else, or a player in a certain position gets sold before a much needed replacement has been brought in they then are disappointed 😥



14 Jun 2018 20:01:31
I've always liked Elmohamady would be a good addition if we could get him.

That's a pound wasted 🤣🤣



05 Jun 2018 15:07:09
Isn't the transfer market slow every time it's the world cup as clubs don't want to sell players in case there stock goes up, yes I know we won't be buying many at the world cup but when the prem starts buying and selling properly it sends a ripple effect through the rest of the league's.

Red James

Does anyone else think it's time to start thinking of stadium naming rights, yes I don't like the idea of it not being the city ground but everyone else is doing it and earning good money time to move with the times maybe.

Half of the Britt fee so yes in perspective not a massive amount now a days, I just think as a club and fans we have fell behind the times and we still see 8 mill as a new english transfer record

No player has been that outstanding in the last few seasons and not seen much proof that any are worth keeping, the word I've seen most the for Eric is solid not outstanding or irreplaceable things need to change and they are just trust in those who are making these changes and judge after a few games
