Unfortunately it looks like Colbach and Dawson haven't signed. A shame as we would have been solid with both of them.

1.) 01 Feb 2018 00:13:44
PHew, Colback is a red!!!

2.) 01 Feb 2018 00:16:05
Colback as been announced so has geddy



06 Jan 2018 22:31:47
Apparently some of the players want Gary Brazil to take over. Maybe with so many Academy players he'd be good for a punt at least until the summer. If he got us promoted great and if not he can continue to work with the younger players in the first team for a while.

1.) 07 Jan 2018 00:46:24
Well if they knock Arsenal out, not out of the question. Sadly I think GB is always the bridesmaid never the bride. Owners have their man and we'll find out soon enough.

2.) 07 Jan 2018 09:03:00
I like and probably we all like Brazil, but he didn't exactly do much last time he took over. I'd be interested in having the German here, you have to admit their managers seem to produce awesome fast-flowing football.

3.) 07 Jan 2018 09:42:22
If he got us promoted? Seriously?

4.) 07 Jan 2018 17:04:33
Promoted... Hmm.... Definitely not!

5.) 07 Jan 2018 22:56:03
You guys who say nay all the time know nothing. Still think Brazil couldn't get us promoted after that result?



01 Jan 2018 11:39:24
Yes I know Roy Keane has strugged in management in the past but perhaps he is what these players need? Not to put too fine a point on it these players need a rocket up their collective backsides.

Something recent bosses at Forest have lacked is experience playing at the highest level. Keane has that and has hopefully learned something from Martin O'Neill during his time at Ireland!

Obviously O'Neill with Keane would be the dream ticket. Groom Keane for the job long term while he is assistant!

1.) 01 Jan 2018 11:58:01
Kean was at the match on Saturday?

2.) 01 Jan 2018 12:10:14
Keane maybe O'Neills assist with Ireland, however he is a Manager in his own right, cannot see him being an assistant at Forest. They both have well paid cushy jobs with Ireland and cannot see either of them coming to Forest. The Greek is not going to pay compensdation for them to come to Forest.

3.) 01 Jan 2018 12:18:02
Well. If keane was at the match then he is obviously going to leave his international job and take over at a struggling championship club. Makes perfect sense

4.) 01 Jan 2018 12:22:34
There is a difference between being strong and being a bully.
O'Neil definitely, Keane never for me.

5.) 01 Jan 2018 12:34:15
I have been told the new contracts with Ireland have not been signed after they failed to qualify for the world cup. There would not be a big problem regarding compensation for that reason.

6.) 01 Jan 2018 12:52:37
It doesn't matter who we get, Reddog. You always want them out within 6 months anyway. LOL

7.) 01 Jan 2018 13:20:12
Keano is clueless, he just cannot man-manage whereas O'Neil can.

8.) 01 Jan 2018 13:33:24
RC, I want what is best for the team I pay to support and will back a decent manager the same as the next man.
There is no such thing as a football club now it's a limited company that expects results to maximise profit.
I'm sure a clever guy like you already knew that though ๐Ÿ˜‰
As a paying fan I have an opinion and I have felt (since the day he was disrespectful to Eric on the radio) that he was not right for the club.
Better being realistic than the "give him time" brigade

9.) 01 Jan 2018 15:32:33

10.) 01 Jan 2018 15:50:07
Keane is a thug. Remember what he did to haaland? Iโ€™d have Oโ€™Neill though.

11.) 02 Jan 2018 15:19:27
Red dog, great post mate. Youโ€™ve summmarised perfectly what is expected of a manager to survive in the modern business of football.



28 Dec 2017 16:49:16
Stephen Caulker to Forest? Free transfer, one England cap and a gambling/alcohol habit.

1.) 28 Dec 2017 22:55:52
Need to put a "cork"in that"bottle" and not put the "money"down on that one.๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…



20 Jun 2017 18:07:46
Apparently Jake Buxton has been released by Wigan and wants to move closer to his family in Nottingham. Surprise transfer to Forest?

1.) 20 Jun 2017 18:30:32
On your bike with that one. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€.

2.) 20 Jun 2017 18:48:17
Will end up back at Burton if that's what he wants to do. how a forest fan can celebrate like he did when he scored against us is beyond me. i wouldn't have him here for that very reason.

3.) 20 Jun 2017 19:09:26
They are paid professionals first, fans second. When you are the underdogs to score must be a thrill.

4.) 20 Jun 2017 20:02:18
What about the way that Ward scored against us and calibrated for Dierby?
Do you not cheer him on?

5.) 20 Jun 2017 20:51:35
We do not need journeymen defenders thank you.

Burton Pies or Stags is his level!

6.) 20 Jun 2017 23:05:41
Coming from Ireland I wouldn't of thought ward supported derby as a kid! jake Buxton supported forest as a kid into his teens so to play and score for derby against forest and celebrate how he did didn't sit well.

7.) 20 Jun 2017 23:37:52
Hes about as irish as me, being born in Solihull he probably supported Villa or birmingham.

8.) 21 Jun 2017 07:30:18
Didn't even realise he wasn't Irish. still don't think he would be a derby fan which is what we are talking about.

9.) 21 Jun 2017 11:02:01
So he was born in Solihull, and represents Northern Ireland, surely that is an obvious conclusion to have come to. Perhaps he had some relative born in Derby and was close to them, feelings wise so became a Derby fan aswell. I was born in Nottingham, but my Dad was born in Bolton, so?

10.) 21 Jun 2017 14:41:21
Would rather have Jake Thackery! (One for the old ones! Youngsters would have to Google that one)!

The last thing we needed at Forest was more instability and another change of Boss. The poor results I predicted are happening. At this rate the predictions I am hearing about Karanka getting the chop before the season is out will happen.

Yes I'm going to say it!!! I TOLD YOU SO!!!

1.) 10 Feb 2018 20:36:49
Cyclist you are so right mate said exactly the same myself.



02 Jan 2018 11:25:10
Is the delay appointing a new boss to give the hierarchy time to speak to Nigel Clough's agent? Stranger things have happened.

1.) 02 Jan 2018 11:46:16
Letโ€™s hope not.

Get Karanka in. Best man for the job by a country mile.

2.) 02 Jan 2018 12:46:18
It looks like it might be Roy Keane no better than Warburton in my opinion and a step backwards if it is

3.) 02 Jan 2018 13:29:51
I would be happy with Karanka.I just hope wee don't entertain the idea of bringing in Gary Monk, i can't get past the interview he gave after we beat Leeds 3-1 last season. "If not for the goals we conceded we would have won the game, definitely."

4.) 02 Jan 2018 14:52:36
I don't think Roy Keane is an option for manager even less experienced than Warburton, personally i think he is being carried by O,Neil, and Nigel Clough might be a nice man but his Burton teams have been struggling at the wrong end of the table for a couple of seasons,as a lot of people say we need a manager with Champ.experience and get us playing as a team and all in the correct positions, Karanka or Monk could be ok ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

5.) 02 Jan 2018 15:03:05
Not RK please. We need a top class manager with a proven track record of success not a local hero. Remember Pearce?

6.) 02 Jan 2018 16:04:30
The fact that Burton Albion are even in the Championship for the second successive season is an achievement in itself never mind struggling at the wrong end of the table.
They finished above us last season and That's with a population of 75,000 and an average gate of 4,500.
Just saying.

7.) 03 Jan 2018 10:29:45
Spot on Red Fred, also when with Derby he had no money and had to recruit from the lower leagues.Sheffield Utd to 2 cup semi finals and i think they finished 6th?
It was 98% Nigels work that got Burton into the Football league.
Lets get him in and see what he can do.Hes performing miracles at Burton just to keep them in this league.



08 Oct 2016 16:29:42
Apparently Fawaz is threatening to take people who abuse him to court.

I know it isn't perfect at Forest but stop wishing Al Hasawi away. We need him to keep funding the club to the tune of a few million every two months or we're finished. Unless someone wants to give the club that kind of money we need him.

1.) 08 Oct 2016 16:53:16
Bullying is ok now because he's made bad decisions he deserves the abuse. telling him to chuff off back to Kuwait and die is ok apparently.

2.) 08 Oct 2016 19:05:06
Bullying, come on. The abuse isn't right but this is the world we live now.
He shouldn't even be on there IMO. Owner of the club squabbling with so called fans. Its pathetic on both sides.
What concerns me more is DOF walks again!
If we weren't a joke of a club before we definitely are now.

3.) 08 Oct 2016 19:21:18
Your right telling someone to chuff off back to Kuwait and die is more than just bullying but that's ok is it.
Constant name calling and insults sent his way is bullying is it not?

4.) 08 Oct 2016 19:49:50
Fawaz should be above all the name calling and answering people on Twitter.
Big mistake to want to be loved by all, better to say nothing than argue with people that no matter what you do you will not be right.
Fawaz made one big mistake buying Nottingham Forest without a clue how to manage us.

5.) 08 Oct 2016 19:59:27
If we were in the school yard yes.
Maybe he should stick to official statements then.

6.) 08 Oct 2016 20:15:57
It is unnecessary for sure and sadly shows how backward and moronic many of the citizens in this country still are as it isn't just our fans who behave this way.

The fact that the red top tabloids still sell numerous copies a day with their sensationalist and provocative viterol says at all really doesn't it?

You speak sense UTF but surely FAH needs to do all he can now to sell the club. I can't believe that he's actually being offered anywhere near what he's spent rather than it being down to his messiah driven demands.

I hope he gets the offer soon that will persuade him to sell as this is becoming torture for us now, worse still it is having disastrous effects for the unity of the club as some will keep using it as a platform to be disruptive and volatile.

7.) 08 Oct 2016 20:55:39
I agree he needs to go. people on here think I support him which isn't true I see the good in some but I hate the constant abuse a person gets for making some errors which has cost him a small fortune.
We all know he won't get what he wants for the club but a man who has got millions and will keep making millions and who is as stubborn as him won't think twice about doing the people over that have caused him and his family grief.
My worry is that these so called fans abusing him and forcing him out havnt got a back up plan if he sells all our assets (Lansbury, Britt, mance, vellios, osborn, lichaj, pillinos, ) in jan taking back ยฃ30mill including the Burke sale. selling cheap leaving us with a squad that can't compete and going back into league one. league 1 has stricter rules regards ffp so we won't be able buy our way out like some think.
The fawaz out gang should of just let him try and find a decent buyer this season, now he could just sell to anyone and he might be just as bad. in fact just like the last protests the fans made against the last regime that made way for fawaz to takeover here.

8.) 08 Oct 2016 21:27:35
I agree mate.

Hope he sells Osborn though๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป.

9.) 08 Oct 2016 21:28:50
Great post up the forest, exactly how it is. not sure if some of the people on here will agree though as they are not looking any further than just getting rid of fawaz.

10.) 08 Oct 2016 21:51:10
Fawaz wants a lot more than 30 million.
And he won't get much for the club after selling off all the playing assets.
Long time since I've felt this low about our club.

11.) 09 Oct 2016 12:25:05
OSBORN would be a good cash in player. Heard some clubs are interested.

12.) 09 Oct 2016 12:25:33
And LANSBURY. Have a clear out and rebuild totally from lower leagues and abroad.



29 Aug 2016 18:07:57
Ravel Morrison is on the verge of a return to English football.

The 23-year-old, who is currently playing for Lazio, is attracting attention from Hull, Sunderland and Nottingham Forest.

1.) 29 Aug 2016 19:29:19
I'm sure you guys have just saw this. Fawaz say'n "maybe 4 players by Wednesday" Adomah would be a good addition. hope the others are as thrilling as Dumitru๐Ÿ˜—๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ.

2.) 29 Aug 2016 19:50:02
Rogie Red,13mill in the bank,1 player on loan don't hold your breath for anyone exciting ๐Ÿ˜Ž.

3.) 29 Aug 2016 20:22:58
Is Morrison such a good idea, a notorious bad boy showing our youngsters how not to behave. Not a good mix.



29 Aug 2016 17:47:04
Ravel Morrison is on the verge of a return to English football, according to the Daily Mail.

Who's Dumitru? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.

Short memories. He looked very good to me. Young and lost confidence after a bad game but don't you dare talk about lightweight to me. Messi, Modric, Maradonna and so on are all smaler players. Stop chattin' nonsense.

I'd forget Tomlin. We have Osbourne and The new Portuguese lad at number 10

RedRascal - I don't think Soudani is an out and out striker either. I think he is a winger/wide striker in a 3 so he would be in addition to whoever we bring in as a number 9.

If we get Tomlin then Vydra would be a waste of money at Number 10 as well. Havingsaidthat it has gone awfully quiet on the Tomlin front as well since we went for the Portuguese youngster.

Is it looking like no Pantillimon, no Tomlin AND no Colbach or am I imagining it?
