I think we should sign Burke Antonio and Britt ๐Ÿ˜‚.

Red James

1.) 03 Aug 2018 22:24:26
Have you just win the Euro millions?
Or is a Turkish holiday really that cheap?๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

2.) 03 Aug 2018 22:57:22
To be fair red James the three Portuguese lads look the real deal and they say never look back?

3.) 03 Aug 2018 23:30:29
You might be joking but I'd suggest Burke is available at the right price.

4.) 03 Aug 2018 23:39:33
Could pay in lira would help a lot lol

5.) 03 Aug 2018 23:40:45
But yes they do I was at the Bournemouth game and we looked the prem side and them championship just concerned with Murphy getting the number 9 shirt

6.) 04 Aug 2018 08:10:22
Murphy needs the number 9 bus out of here.

7.) 04 Aug 2018 17:38:33
@Red always: WRONG!

8.) 04 Aug 2018 21:36:04
Murphy has a role to play or AK wouldn't play him. Most fans would welcome the Murphy we saw at the start of last season. Injury and personal issues robbed us of that player. His age and contract will attract unfair criticism, his only escape is to score goals. So well done Murphy, well done AK keep doing what you're well paid to do.๐Ÿ‘

9.) 05 Aug 2018 14:22:57

He didn't give himself the contract. We are paying him what we are paying him but that and his personal probs last season don't make him a bad player. I just reckon people have been unfair with him and should give him a break.



27 Jun 2018 12:57:26
Formal offer has made to Daniel Podence.

Red James

Portuguese Messi

2.) 27 Jun 2018 13:12:02
Who ?. Get Marriott in and get in done and offload Grant if need be

3.) 27 Jun 2018 13:37:30
Marriott is way overpriced just like bambi.
Let some other club take the risk.

4.) 27 Jun 2018 13:44:19
Getting a feeling that Marriott isn't what AK is looking for,I think a proven goalscorer at this level,fingers crossed for grabben

5.) 27 Jun 2018 14:19:25
Soudani medical Friday.
Grabbon hopefully but we defo need another central midfielder. We got Watson bridgcutt.
Geddy not good enough osbourne cash can do a job there but little light weight.
Clayton needs signing. No more overseas players
Got enough. we need championship/prem experience

6.) 27 Jun 2018 14:26:02
Anyone heard anything on Robles?

7.) 27 Jun 2018 14:36:47
Mo Besic please

8.) 27 Jun 2018 15:49:03
Haven't we reached capacity in midfield yet?

9.) 27 Jun 2018 17:20:27
Capacity? Nonsense. Yes we need to sell/loan players. But what do you want the management to do if a better player than we have becomes availably. Bring him in and remove a weaker player or keep the weaker squad?

That is how you strengthen. You bring in better players than you have. Only an idiot would keep what they have and turn down better players.

10.) 27 Jun 2018 17:31:33
Like your post red cyclist.
Very true indeed.

11.) 27 Jun 2018 18:14:41
Roy our now saying Soudani to sign for calgiari

12.) 27 Jun 2018 18:50:04
RedCyclist I am fully aware of the philosophy behind the strenghtening of an existing squad and the commerce that is necessary to facilitate such an endevour, but thanks for reminding me.

13.) 28 Jun 2018 06:21:54
Sgetty May I also remind you that this a rumours page not the banter page.
Sarcastic or condescending posts will be treated with an appropriate manner as such that your post maybe forwarded to the Derby County site for thorough investigation into why you have posted such a post regarding commerce, philosophical strengthening of a football team.
Fwank and Crush candy mel will give you the opportunity to explain your theory to the board to put your example of commerce and strengthening into the new Derby. County Model also known FFP.
You have been warned! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

14.) 28 Jun 2018 08:16:02
"RedCyclist I am fully aware of the philosophy behind the strenghtening of an existing squad"

So you know I'm right then. Congratulations on actually admitting the obvious truth - that the foremoaners are wrong about bringing in better midfielders is the wrong thing to do!

It's like trying t suck blood from a stone getting people to admit they are wrong on here. :P

15.) 28 Jun 2018 11:42:41
Can't say I've tried to suck blood from anything nevermind a stone?
Care to elaborate red ๐Ÿšด ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚?

My blood is red. That's all you need to know. :)



25 Jun 2018 15:58:46
Season long loan for Sam byram and rumoured to be putting in a bid for Fabio would 2 great signings I think.

Red James

1.) 25 Jun 2018 16:11:31
players and their agents alike clearly want to be part of this 'project'. It's great that Forest have become players first choice of destination. how things can change so quickly. A couple of seasons ago we couldn't attract anything like the calibre of player we needed.

2.) 25 Jun 2018 16:40:03
Both would be great additions! Isn't there a ruling on how many loans you can have in a match squad tho? If these are both loans we are up to 4 already!

3.) 25 Jun 2018 16:49:24
Yes I believe u can have up to 5 loans in your squad however Fabio will be prmenant and Byrom will be a loan

4.) 25 Jun 2018 16:56:02
With a surname of Byram he sounds as if he should be in the sheeps squad.

5.) 25 Jun 2018 16:58:15
Byram would be a season long loan and talks of 3m for Fabio from Middlesbrough. That would be LB and Rb taken care of.

6.) 25 Jun 2018 16:59:00
Is there an agreed future fee for Byram? and how much we paying for Fabio? Just need to tie up deals for these 2 and Clayton, Stuani, Soudani, Marriott and get a keeper then we are in business ๐Ÿ˜„

7.) 25 Jun 2018 17:50:29
If we get half the players in doing the rounds weโ€™ll win the World Cup never mind the championship lol COYR

8.) 25 Jun 2018 20:07:08
Sam Byram would be a good signing especially if we can agree an option to sign him. Class act but had injuries at West Ham so he will be keen to get back on track. An upgrade on Eric.

Not keen on Fabio or a fan of short full backs who will get exposed. Sooner have BO at left back than him for ยฃ3m which is well over the top?

9.) 25 Jun 2018 21:12:15
Just proves that BO is on his way as I doubt heโ€™s getting in our midfield either if all of these new additions and further targets materialise

10.) 25 Jun 2018 21:12:43
I did not know body odour could play football, if it could it would have a stinker of a game. ๐Ÿ˜

11.) 25 Jun 2018 23:44:03
Think both these would be great though wouldnโ€™t payยฃ3m for Fabio.
I read on some Portuguese sites that Jose Sa deal is virtually done with Porto but will need to agreed personal terms that might be stumbling block. Personally think he would be great signing and better than Pants. Is good with his feet and disruption and strong shot stopper just likes to punch crosses but Pants does too! As is younger and more experienced in some ways (Recent regular champions league and regular league in Portugal and for Under 21s a few years back)



14 Jun 2018 20:13:37
Now 100% confirmed Joao Carvalho and Diogo Goncalves are signed not on the forest site but ssn and BBC medicals passed today deal done :)

Red James

1.) 14 Jun 2018 20:32:40
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?!?!??! ยฃ4m 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 ยฃ4mil 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
ยฃ4m 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 ยฃ4mill poshโ€™s owner has said no they wonโ€™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?

Wonder if the visit was planned as stated just seems funny ak has a bit of a moan at the fans Saturday and he is here by Monday, maybe he has come to do his best Alan sugar impression.

Red James

1.) 23 Oct 2018 20:40:03
Red James
I personally do not believe his vist was planned, but that does not mean it was not. AK is must be able to see the axe being sharpened.

2.) 23 Oct 2018 21:07:44
In fairness it's not the worst start to a season my feeling is wins have nearly all had an air of luck about them apart from Middlesbrough, the draws have been close calls at times and the 2 losses were awful displays if your teams plays well and loses it softens the blow, fans seem to think were the only team in transition but we're not just other teams are doing it better, you can't tell me ak's negative tactics don't affect the players they must see the team sheet and think here we go again, were at home why aren't we just all out for the win



06 Oct 2018 14:58:41
Watson and colback pairing again isn't the definition of madness trying the same thing over and over and expecting different results hope I'm wrong.

Red James



04 Oct 2018 20:49:30
This should be interesting if you had 25 mill to spend who would you bring in within the realms of possibility and what would your first team look like.

Red James

1.) 04 Oct 2018 21:10:22
Don't you think we've bought enough in?? And some of them haven't seen the light of day?

2.) 05 Oct 2018 00:03:39
Obviously a hypothetical question but I would have looked at these players at the start of the season when we had money. Aiden Flint,George Friend, Lee Tomlin, and Tammy Abraham or Dwight Gayle. Oh,and almost any other keeper in the championship,league1 or league 2, than the one we actually bought!

3.) 05 Oct 2018 00:10:11
Red James the problem is you put within the realms of possibility.

4.) 05 Oct 2018 02:42:50
Red James,if I had 25 million to spend,I would hire a financial"Team",and spend it on the wife and kids Mate!! ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

5.) 05 Oct 2018 13:57:56
I'd of bought
Westwood gk 2m
Janko 2/3m
Flint but not for what borough paid
Tomlin 2m
Adomah 1/2m
Ings 8m
Afobe 8m
Clayton 3m
I would not of bought calvalho for 13m
I would not of loaned other 2 Portuguese lads.
I wouldn't of signe soudani.
In fact the only players that karanka got who I'd of brought in is janko Robinson colback

6.) 05 Oct 2018 14:23:07
Lol ff I meant your choice of players for the money spent so far not on top of what we have already

7.) 05 Oct 2018 19:37:42
Always your ยฃ25m would still be burning a hole in your pocket as most of your picks were not available or would not step down a league. Janko and Tomlin were available on frees!

8.) 06 Oct 2018 01:01:49
Iโ€™d of bought cooper from Millwall played 3 at the back not played fox, I know heโ€™s played well this season but donโ€™t think heโ€™s that great, wouldnโ€™t of signed the lads from benfica but would of signed Dias on loan cus I actually thought that was a good signing for us, I would of signed Gayle from Newcastle for 10m instead of grabban an I would of gone for hourihane from villa at a time when if we would of said hereโ€™s 5m they would of probably accepted, goalkeeper wise Iโ€™d of signed Forster from southampton



30 Sep 2018 18:44:42
My preseason bet of winning the cup might starting giving me tempting cash out options if we beat Burton lol.

2.) 30 Sep 2018 22:04:30
Red James, what price did you get? Must've been 500/1, at least.๐Ÿ‘€

3.) 01 Oct 2018 00:55:01
150/1 because of all the hype lol

4.) 01 Oct 2018 04:57:38
๐Ÿ‘Ž to that price, unless we win.๐Ÿ˜



19 Sep 2018 18:58:20

Like grabbans goal against Middlesbrough, thought it was more about a poor final ball that was our problem for those kind of goals, think grabban would knock them in all day with passes like lolleys we just don't supply him enough

Worthing people's issues were his tactics not the players or squad but it seems he has finally realised he can't play Watson and colback together which is what was destroying the team, I've been behind ak the team cheering on from the stands but that doesn't mean I can't stat a glaring issue in team selection that every man and his dog could see except ak, as for squad size yes it's a concern with an average wage of probably 15k each 33 players that half a million a week which we can't sustain cup money is rubbish unless you win it

4,2,3,1 would be great if we had a striker that can play the lone role and 2 part of the formation didn't keep dropping into the back 4 looks more like 6,5,0

4,2,3,1 no matter what formation were playing against it just won't work that's why Pearce got found out as he played the same formation teams knew what to expect and set themselves to counter the set in stone formation

Cjay you were as silent as a mouse after the millwall game now your shouting from the rooftops at least were consistent lol, credit where credit is due criticism when it's due, one bad performance and you say it's too early to judge so why after one good performance can you judge and say he is hear to stay ? Surely has to work both ways
