Hearing Bassong, the former Newcastle, Spurs and Norwich Defender and Cameroon international, is another possible free transfer target! Can play centre back or Leftback and very experienced at 31 still got a few decent years in him, might want big wages but decent player in my eyes maybe just on a short term deal until end of season?


1.) 06 Feb 2018 00:27:34
What are we? scrap yard for old pros wanting a last pay day?
Karanka s had seven signings without picking up hitchikers.
He needs to focus on sorting out the defence and showing our jolly giant how to catch the ball and cover his near post.
He needs to show them where the opposition's goal is and get there as fast as you can.

He needs to show worrrall how to trap a ball.
Do the job you've been bought here for,youve been given enough extra tools to work with.
No more journeyman freebies it don't work.

2.) 06 Feb 2018 07:47:53
Your man should of done this with worrall your man also had 9months to sort the defence.yet you think karanka has had a couple of weeks and you think he should of sorted it by now!brilliant

3.) 06 Feb 2018 10:27:02
Just keep bringing in the out of work unfit players then Sutton.
These out of work footballers are a waste of space,Out of work for a reason,they're not good enough anymore,they've been there done that and got the t-shirt.
No hunger left in em?it's just another pay day.

4.) 06 Feb 2018 12:53:07
I think we're assuming a lot about these guys, like they're just here for the money. Look at Dejagah; out of contract for weeks but obviously kept himself in shape enough for 30 minutes of Championship footy two days after getting here. I'm backing them all to be a great success.

5.) 06 Feb 2018 17:04:52
FF79 is getting very shirty in his old age!

Some of the free agents were injured come contract expiry day and not renewed.

I trust Karanka over Warburton to pick up a player who can hit the ground running at left back in this league.

6.) 06 Feb 2018 20:16:07
Lets give em all a chance eh before flushing them down the pan.

Karanka is not a fool, let's see what the and the team can do between now and the end of the season.

7.) 06 Feb 2018 20:48:11
Bassong is woeful. Norwich were glad to be rid. I may be wrong but was Bassong not part of more than one relegated first team squads (different clubs). A bit Lescott esque?

8.) 06 Feb 2018 21:56:14
Not really red,i just don't share your confidence in Karanka.
Know the tactics and can't see were the goals will come from.
Just hope tomlin can do some magic,fitness being the issue though.
Not so long ago you were applauding Warburton and his vision of the future.
I hope Karanka proves me wrong starting against hull,a must win game



23 Jan 2018 23:56:36
Seen a few reports about us looking at this Algerian lad Soudani from Zagreb.
30 year old who scoring record is very impressive with more than 1 goal ever 2 games and top scorer in Russia and at national level.
Might be worth a punt but hard to know if he will transfer that form to Championship and don't want another Djebbour!
Reports in Russia saying we might be lining up a 2 million bid.


1.) 24 Jan 2018 00:11:06
Since when was Zagreb in Russia? 🤔🤔

2.) 24 Jan 2018 06:19:21
Forest don’t have much look with Algerian players.

3.) 24 Jan 2018 07:35:39
Which of our many manager bought Djjabour in?

4.) 24 Jan 2018 07:38:35
That luck has to change at somepoint but I think it's all paper talk I think we will only sign experienced champo players in this window and the foreign gambles in the summer as that will make integration that little bit easier

5.) 24 Jan 2018 10:55:09
But on the other hand if he turned out to be another Riyad Mahrez! That's the risk you take with any signing, I mean it's not like we've had any English, Spanish, French ect players who have flopped is it? Saying don't sign an Algerian player because he might be like Djebbour is like saying don't sign another English player because he might be like Mills.

6.) 24 Jan 2018 11:19:58
Completely agree Red Tech.

7.) 24 Jan 2018 11:34:12
so long as we sign him for less than million
And don't put him on silly wages. Like we did with other 2 Algerians

8.) 24 Jan 2018 11:46:00
I think his club want £2m

9.) 24 Jan 2018 11:56:14
Saying we don’t do well with Algerian signings seems to forget Adlene Guediora somewhat.

10.) 24 Jan 2018 13:20:22
I wouldn't be paying 2m for him.
He's coming from noddy league. On par with Scottish premier.
2 million could be better spent.

11.) 24 Jan 2018 16:57:53
This lad looks a lot more prolific than Djjabour to be honest. .49 international goals in 39 appearances!

12.) 24 Jan 2018 21:12:31
21 goals in 39 international is the true figure,68 in 162 appearances for Zagreb

13.) 25 Jan 2018 07:26:23
2m is very steep and at 30 he isn't getting any younger for a striker.



10 Jan 2018 12:35:52
Ryan Yates has signed a new two year contract with the club after impressing out on loan at County. Could have a huge future with the club.


1.) 10 Jan 2018 13:46:21
I'm pleased about that :)

At least it prevents us having to sell him because he only had 6 months left on his contract. That would have meant us pulling him from county and despite what county supporters think. We do actually want them to do well :)

Hope he can continue to progress :)

2.) 10 Jan 2018 16:23:18
Looks like he's moved to Scunny. :/

Disappointed with that but I guess it'll be good for his development and more money for the club.

3.) 10 Jan 2018 16:40:23
He's only going to scunny on loan,signing new three year contract with forest.

4.) 10 Jan 2018 20:07:55
Yes, I know.

Disappointed that he's not at Notts. I rather enjoyed seeing the forest lads doing well over the river.

I hoped we were building a good relationship so we could loan out more players and benefit as a city.
If they don't win promotion we will be blamed and they might be partially right.

5.) 10 Jan 2018 20:29:04
Another good stepping stone for Yates though,up another league with a side pushing for promotion.
I know Notts fans rate him highly,but the lad wants to make it with forest and this will be a good move and test for him during his development.

6.) 10 Jan 2018 20:31:07
Scunny are League 1 so is a step up guess if he makes the step up there and impresses like he has done in League 2 for County then he might be given chance next season for Forest!



31 Aug 2017 14:00:45
Heard in Italian press that we made an enquiry for Genoa Leftback Davide Brivio yesterday. Experienced in Series B and limited Series A experience, is 29 and former Italy youth international but not getting games at Genoa. No bid made as yet just interest.


1.) 31 Aug 2017 14:21:59
I am just trying to picture Frank McP and his telephone manner with this approach?
It is you we're looking for?
I can see it in your eyes
I can see it in your smile
You're all I've ever wanted
And my arms are open wide

COYR's Bravo Brivio Frank (Lionel) McParland

2.) 31 Aug 2017 18:34:32
If we got a new CB in,I'll be "Dancing On The Ceiling!!"

3.) 31 Aug 2017 19:07:13
Rogie we have a centre forward called Doddoo so ""Wake me up before you GoGo"!

4.) 31 Aug 2017 20:27:21
Maybe it's just a "Careless Whisper!!" 😂😂😂



19 Aug 2017 21:44:05
Good to see Chris Woods shouldn't be a Leeds player by next Saturday! Agreed fee to go to Burnley now so should be confident in getting something from that game too!

All change please for Burton!

Darwinkwa Worrall. Tobias. Fuentes
Watson. Lolley
Brereton. Murphy



1.) 11 Feb 2018 15:19:00
Stop it!

2.) 11 Feb 2018 15:46:58
Is there anyone we can replace Worral with? Is Jack Hobbs totally done? I’d have Vaughan on the bench too.

3.) 11 Feb 2018 16:01:11
No Jack Colback?

4.) 11 Feb 2018 16:07:54
Replace Worrall with Fox. He's a far better centre back than left back.
Darikwa? You havin a laugh?
Vaughan should start every game he possibly can!

5.) 11 Feb 2018 16:32:05
Darikwa is useless

6.) 11 Feb 2018 16:39:33
Darikwa will play next week or cash will.
Eric will be cast aside now by kranky

7.) 11 Feb 2018 17:09:25
Mental mate we need the basis of at least 7 or 8 players to start gelling together chopping and changing so often when we are blatantly so piss poor is only going to spell trouble and for peat sake play 2 up front at home even if velios and Brereton or Murphy and Brereton, ply numerous crosses into the box and try and score goals. No goal at home since mid December is a crisis. We are such a joke at the moment its unbearable things got to change quickly or we going to be picking up the pieces in league 1 and we know how long it took us last time. In fact if it wasn't for Doncasters spectacular collapse in the last ten games we may well still be there so please lads start picking up a couple wins here and there just so we stay in this division. We are a long way off even contemplating pushing top 6 in the championship a major rethink is needed in the summer and i don't mean change of manager don't think I could take it again. Forest hired AK now need to stick by their convictions whether we like it or not, consistency breeds confidence, confidence earns you points lucky or otherwise. i'd rather 11 triers than 11 can't be bothered egotistical this is not working so I'll sulk like a baby players. Let's hope AK has acquired one or two decent additions.

8.) 11 Feb 2018 17:16:44
Cog I'm giving you the job for your tactics.
It's a no brainer that we can't play his preferred system.
So change it like you say.

9.) 11 Feb 2018 17:26:24
Absolutely! Vellios and Murphy together supplied with crosses would surely reap some goals?
Maybe bring McKay back and Lolly on other wing or Lolly and Dejagah.
Cash for all his effort isn't a winger and Osborn and Dowell certainly aren't.
We can't keep a clean sheet to save our lives so we must start scoring.

10.) 11 Feb 2018 17:33:51
Fred you can be his assistant.
I'm Liking that idea,but back to reality,it's not going to happen,mores the pity.



06 Feb 2018 13:32:43
So what we expecting team to be on Saturday? Will Watson start and play with Geddy and Colback in midfield or will Colback play left back? Is it time to rest Dowell after several below par performances? Will Tobias make his debut and Manchienne come in and will Bridcutt be recalled or Smith in goal? Bereton or Vellios up top? Will Dejagah get a start?!? Is a bit game and AK needs a big result!
Personally I would like to see.

Lichij. Worrall Machienne Fox
Cash. Watson. Guedioura Osborn

Dejagah / Lolley


1.) 06 Feb 2018 14:01:13
Think Ben Watson will be the new captain and if fit will definitely start.

2.) 06 Feb 2018 14:08:25
I like it - but I don’t think Cash is ready yet

3.) 06 Feb 2018 14:24:43
Not enough creativity.
Tomlin behind Vellios.



01 Feb 2018 13:38:11
Just watched the interviews with the new players and all of them said that working with Karanka was huge reason for coming, that speaking with players who had worked with him before everyone had a lot of respect for him! Think we have a manager who demands respect but respects his players too, also signed some great experience and some hungry players who have proven in this league they can be brilliant but most have been dropped in recent months/ this season and sound like they are keen to prove to themselves and the world that they are good enough. Got a few fighters in which is just what we need! Excited now for coming months!


1.) 01 Feb 2018 14:27:47
I agree to some extent with your point. However the ones who have left weren't really putting pressure on the starting XI. There is real competition now and even if there aren't wholesale changes on Saturday the pressure on those who do play will be ramped up knowing the players in the wings are more than capable of replacing them now not some hangers on who we couldn't wait to get rid of.



31 Jan 2018 03:14:27
Team for Saturday (I hope)
New Keeper (Pantillimon)
Lichij. Worrall. Tobias. New Leftback (Hult? )
New Right Winger (Dejagah? ) Cash. New Centre Midfielder (Clayton! ) . Osbourn
Brereton. New Striker (Soudani)

New Defender
New Midfielder (Anyone)

But I wouldn't be surprised if we sell Worrall tomorrrow and buy no one.


1.) 31 Jan 2018 08:13:22
If Worrall leaves i don't think it will because he wants to. I'm sure he'll have 'how much game time will i get' in the back of his mind. I bet if you ask Burke he'll say he wished he had stayed at Forest.

2.) 31 Jan 2018 08:49:59
I wouldn't think Burke has given us a second thought with 10% of the transfer fee's in the bank 2.5m !!!!

3.) 31 Jan 2018 12:19:32
Burke came out and said he knew very little about his transfer and was desperate to come back to the UK and had hoped to stay at Forest for another year or two but Club pushed transfer.
I have friends who know him and they all said he was excited about Germany but hadn’t really been ready to go.



15 Jan 2018 12:32:11
Keep seeing people slating Warburtons signings. wasn't a fan of Warburtons defensive training tactics but can't knock hiss signings really. most were young and value will only go up and stats wise.

This season out of 33 goals we scored.

Warburtons signing created and scored 25 of those.
Non-Warburton signings scored and created just 8.
Without his signings we would be in the bottom 3!
His signings aren't actually the issue they have shown at times they are capable, it was his tactics (or lack of) and him not being able to motivate our players into consistent performances.


1.) 15 Jan 2018 16:53:02
Why did he get Cummings in then never played him?

2.) 15 Jan 2018 17:27:41
As I said this is the one signing I felt really didn’t work out at all. but we should remember he is still only 22 and has a lot of potential, I think Warburton maybe bought him as one for the future and if he had continued as manager would have seen more of him in the second half of this season, he need confidence though so a loan move might benefit him but I wouldn’t write him off yet and sell him so soon.

Think we might escape by the skin of our teeth again. Burton, Barnsley, Reading and Birmingham are all in as bad form and Sunderland have awful team but Coleman has improved them. Think much depends on the games we have coming up against those teams.
Personally I am sick of our transfer policy, buying ex pre-K players. go buy some young class acts from League 1 in summer please!!!

HTFC fans loved him last season and was highly thought of. he is a winger btw not a striker so yes his goal scoring record isn’t great but he isn’t a goal scorer. I don’t know why he wasn’t involved in Saturdays team but heard he had a knock and wasn’t fully fit having played little for Huddersfield this season.

Isn’t loans as you say both had contracts terminated but might but might just be short term contracts until the summer.

I agree he will play three CB like we did in second half, I think Figueiredo will come in for with Manchienne or Fox and Osbourne will be left wing back but I fancy Cash will play right, I expect Watson to come in and possibly Lolley too also think Vellios will be dropped for Murphy or Brereton. think Tomlin will start if fit enough.

16 Feb 2018 18:25:44
Don’t think Lichij will play after last game and think AK might start with back three as we looked more solid in second half against Hull when we changed to that. I would like to see
Worrall Tobias Fox
Cash. Watson. Colback. Osbourn

With Brereton, Tomlin, Geddy all on bench

Next 5 games are huge all against teams below or just above us, if we pick a good amount of points (say 10-15) up we will be safe if not we will be in a battle.

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
