Having read reports on Saturday's game in Wolverhampton's press they are delighted with their win. Wolves regard it as a huge win, and a big win. As I saw with Wolves play they gave us respect in the first half, less so in the second. Most teams when they play us say that they expect to get something from the game. After if they get a result they are over the moon, so don't think we are not improving, we are.


1.) 18 Sep 2017 16:21:38
I think we have improved in some ways but lacking so much in defence plus I noticed that yeah we like to play it on the ground but spend half of it going backwards don't seem to be able to move the ball quickly sometimes I also think Eric should get in the team , one thing that did puzzle me we played one upfront at home which seemed negative while wolves played three upfront

2.) 18 Sep 2017 16:23:53
If I was any other championship team about to play us I would think they have some decent players going forward and have a goal in them but they are crap at the back and vulnerable at set pieces. Full backs that love to getting forward but can't defend for toffee.
We are a team that has improved as a squad from last season and are sorting things out off the pitch but I suspect teams are hardly quaking in their boots at the thought of playing us.

3.) 18 Sep 2017 21:07:31
how can you say there improving.they lose and that's improvement. goals against will be like a cricket score end of season.face the facts,they are not improving.they can't score.cant defend,and can't fathom out mw,s tactics plan.

4.) 18 Sep 2017 22:12:28
Won 4 Lost 4. Should have lost to Millwall, but should have beat Barnsley. How many times in the past when we were not fighting relegation did we out play teams but drew or lost. Like RR said they are all tough games. Defending is poor but Warburton's more attack minded, but hopefully he will sort the defence out so they are more organised, plenty of games left to do it.

5.) 19 Sep 2017 12:07:18
True bright. Plenty of time. Consolidation this season.

6.) 19 Sep 2017 13:12:45
Typical of a v tight league. Not much to choose between most teams so games not likely to be dominated either way. Stay calm and enjoy the tension :/



19 Jun 2017 11:47:27
Received a message from a reliable friend of mine who works from Hampden park that we are looking at more Scottish players. He also confirms that Jason Cummings is a absolute Head Banger, wonder what antics he will get up to on the park.


1.) 19 Jun 2017 16:56:06
Looking at, and getting?

2.) 19 Jun 2017 20:44:53
1951 Have a look at our new strikers antics in a wrestling match with some Scottish professional grappler. Very funny but I'm not sure it's very professional to risk putting your back out whilst arsing around unless he's going to pay the club his wages back whilst he's out of action due to self inflicted injuries. Warbo and the club captain Cohen need to have a quiet word ( or even some loud ones) in his shell like ear about growing g up a bit!

3.) 19 Jun 2017 21:45:08
Too right. acting like a big time Charlie before he's actually done anything. will he go the same way as pat? pato was and is a quality player with massive potential but his social life got in the way just like a certain mr mcgugan.

4.) 19 Jun 2017 21:01:26
If you try to tame some players, you risk losing the very thing that makes the player that they are, therefore losing their effectiveness.

5.) 19 Jun 2017 23:08:03
Utf why don't we just wave the white flag.

I have a suspicion it's a running joke for UTF now. Best thing the positive fans on this forum can do is ignore ANY persistent negativity - we've had a lot the past five years!

Here's to a clean slate and a promising season!

7.) 20 Jun 2017 08:30:25
Cloughie bought some players that other teams wouldn't touch with a barge post. Just look at a certain Kenny Burns who was an absolute terrier but at the time that was what Forest needed in the team. So if we buy players that are not in the mold of an angel but as a little devil then WB has a plan so let's get behind him and not criticized the players that he is buying.

8.) 20 Jun 2017 09:25:29
lol Stokey, that really made me chuckle, are we going to refer to him on here as 'Cum Dog' from now on? :)

Great to see players enjoying themselves and bonding, it's no worse than we used to do in our living room as kids! (Sorry Mum) .

9.) 20 Jun 2017 11:49:59
Good quality banter stuff like that brings sides together.

10.) 20 Jun 2017 14:44:33
Knowing our luck Mr Cummings and his left foot that can "open a tin of beans" will probably slip on the kitchen floor and severe his toe and take on the Matty Fryatt Number 7 role on the treatment table?

11.) 20 Jun 2017 18:30:09

Mate I wouldn't care if he was sat on a chair, with two pencils stuck up his nose, with a pair of underpants on his head shouting "Wibble! As long as he bangs them in for the Mighty Reds!

13.) 20 Jun 2017 18:50:02
Don't get me wrong fellow reds I wouldn't want to knock the spirit out of our "cumdog" just don't do anything too reckless and knacker his back or something! Mind you I used to wince every time Earnshaw did a somersault when he scored! We need characters in the team certainly! As you say you wouldn't take liberties with Big Larry and Kenny but Cloughie channelled that energy and notoriety to positive effect. It's called man management and that was Cloughies genius!

14.) 20 Jun 2017 19:07:03
Rogie is there something we should know about? lol😆😆😆.

15.) 21 Jun 2017 21:52:29
Very loosely connected to Earnies somersault celebrations and Jason "Cumdog" Cummins antics I was reminded of an old Police colleague of mine who I will refer to by his first name only Darren to spare his blushes, who was a laugh a minute. Apart from being a talented impressionist (his John Wayne was faultless even down to the Dukes distinctive walk), he was a natural comedian.

I remember doing traffic duty on Noel Street one Goose Fair afternoon when I heard roars of laughter and looked to see kids pointing and there was Darren walking through the crowd in full Police uniform but instead of his Police helmet he had a huge Police traffic cone wedged tightly on his head. He was saying (to general uproar) "well, that's the last time I try to give a 6 foot 4 bodybuilder a parking ticket! " He actually was selected to go for an audition at RADA in London and was doing very well until it came to the performing arts bit.

The other candidates were doing amazing acrobatics with running up the walls and gymnastic springs etc When his turn came Darren (who was of portly build) walked on stage, placed his jacket down, did a ponderous forward roll on it, stood up and in front of the incredulous judges spread his arms and said "Ta-daaa"! Needless to say he failed the audition. But in terms of laughs RADA s loss was our gain. A great guy and its a real bonus to have such characters in your team.



10 May 2017 12:49:59
To some this is a none story, but as yet has mileage. Some years ago 1973 to be exact a personal friend of mine was involved with the proceedings of a match on the 8th October at the Baseball ground, between Derby v Sunderland in the League cup. I was present with a work mate who was nuts about Derby, me solid Forest. Derby scored 2 first half goals and played Sunderland of the park. At The start of the second half out came Sunderland but Derby took the field late. As the half ticked by it was evident something was different as Sunderland took total control and scored two second half goals and Derby were lucky to get a draw, half way through the half I said to my mate that something has gone off. Seeing my personal friend days later I asked what the hell had gone off, he said at half time one hell of a ding dong but I dare not say otherwise I, am for it. Clough at this time was at odds with Longson who had Offered Clough and Taylor more money to stay. On 13 October Derby played Man. Utd away and two days later both of them had left. To this day my friend will not say what went on but believe me he said it was explosive. One day he will say. As their are still people around, who are still around its no dice. Involved that night were two ex forest players Newton and Hinton and two future players McGovern and Gemmill. I push as hard as I dare.


1.) 10 May 2017 14:29:52
Maybe they just had a crappy second half and he's been pulling your todger for the past 1000 years, as a Derby fan would. The Reds have been a different team either side of half time all season.



13 Jan 2017 23:14:54
Not many know this but hopefully the press may want to confirm this one day that their was offers of buy outs from 1 a consortium lead by a player 2 the Greek guy 3 a big drinks company who own a bundesliga club 4 now the yanks . Are all four trying to screw wazzock or is their one common denominator . Yes their have been 4 fact, this season so far . I think wazzock wants £50 mill plus the sale of players he brought into the club, but the players are the club so what are you buying for £50mill . Don't tell me it's crap it's true . FACT.


1.) 13 Jan 2017 23:34:32
On the basis there is little value in the assets other than the contracted playing staff then for £50m you are buying a dream and a dwindling cash flow of gate receipts. Seller price based on average historic gates of circa 23000. Vote with your feet and reduce the gate to 12000 equals half the price which gives Casino Man very little wiggle room as he is never going to buy his way out the league?



20 Dec 2016 17:41:53
Various suggestions doing the rounds, always thought Fawaz family would ask for more at the final stages. Fans suspicions coming up to the mark . I can see J J Moores group dropping out as did Frank Clarke and Red Bull also, l can see this going badly wrong, players leaving and dropping down to division 1 .

If that happened Fawaz would lose one hell of a lot of money and be worse off instead of accepting a good offer from J J Moores. You have made a right mess of it Fawaz, l hope you lose big time.


1.) 20 Dec 2016 18:10:15
Dont talk crap its as good as done we just have to wait.

2.) 20 Dec 2016 18:32:57
WellNF73fC so far so good, but someone has not yet signed on the dotted line yet, or is that carp .

3.) 20 Dec 2016 18:39:33
Its fawaz we are talking about what did we expect. But the deal is done just needs announcing and hopefully we will never see the prat again.

4.) 20 Dec 2016 19:24:20
Just sit tight mate and enjoy the show !

5.) 20 Dec 2016 21:25:46
Too right NF73FC, very ignorant man and a poor owner. Hopefully announcement will be soon as building blocks appear in place. However need this done sooner rather than later!

6.) 20 Dec 2016 21:30:39
Dont count your chickens guys. Well till all signed and ink dried. Until then presume nothing.

7.) 20 Dec 2016 22:44:09
For john jay moores to start up a new company to facilitate loans given to the club would surely mean paperwork has already been signed? would any business man who's made as much as him do this without something contractually being in place?

8.) 21 Dec 2016 06:32:32
"Various suggestions doing the rounds. " so basically someone mentioned it on that well known reliable news site Twitter?

9.) 21 Dec 2016 10:38:24
How about the takeover starting on Jan 1st, would make sense. Why take over now and have to pay the players wages and club bills for December. Everything looks like it's in place and ready to go.

10.) 21 Dec 2016 12:59:14
The club shop have slashed the price of Christmas decorations. Top buy is the Fawaz Fairy for the top of the tree to celebrate his last Christmas at the club! Surely a Collectors item? Pity he he did not complete the sale 5th November and then they could have all gone on the bonfire!

11.) 21 Dec 2016 13:15:07
Nice one redinexile that's made me smile today. Fatwaz has made himself very very unpopular.

Have seen and heard comments about various forest players that fill me with sadness. Saying this player is carp or we should get rid, or playing for a new contract, what sort of confidence booster comments are they. Every one is entitled to their comments but hey, we are trying to build a side here and every must play their part. The team for the last few seasons has been low in confidence so let's give them our backing. Come on it makes sense, well to me it does . A very dear friend of mine, who if their was royalty in football would be right up their said it doe's matter to have support behind you.


1.) 18 Mar 2018 11:15:14
People, if you agree or not are only saying how they feel, then others argue why they think they are wrong, if that is how they think.

If a defender is caught out of position, appears lazy, have not got their mind on the job, or in any way is responsible for the team conceding a goal, how can you say anything other than how badly they played. No matter what position a player plays why say they have done well if they have not.

You are clearly referring to Fox playing for a new contract, although he has done reasonable in his present position in the past he has never played so well untill now when his contract is close to being up. The only other explanation for his form is the present manager is the best we have had to suit Fox, what does that say about previous managers.

If Fox does read, or listen to the criticism he gets it does not seem to affected his confidence, off course managers and players are not the only ones that get stick from fans, officials do as well. Do you feel sorry for them?

When we are at games we must cheer the players on, but after the game they should not be cheered if they have done badly, what message would that give the players?

2.) 18 Mar 2018 20:53:04
there are a few players that make same mistakes game after game. drereton and cash miss sitters because there not good enough.

3.) 18 Mar 2018 22:43:49
One other explanation is that figs is the the perfect partner for fox or that figs is so good whoever plays alongside will look good?
Figs hasn't put a foot wrong he looks the part and fox must be ready for a suspension? Then it will be interesting to see what happens when he's partnered with Worrall?
My gut feeling is we'll still be solid



13 Mar 2018 17:07:18
As the dust has now settled l look back to last Sunday's game. I wonder what Gary Rowett said to his players prior to the match, did he say "let them know you are there, or rough them up a little ". Or was it some players had their own agenda's? Huddlestone deserved his two yellows for persistent fouling, and their left back was not so kind to Cash either. Richard Keogh never kept his arm of Brereton all game and he looks like an old man now, his time at Derby is all but over. I know he is only 31 but looks like he should play walking football. Are Derby a team, well to me Rowett has not got them singing off the same hymn sheet. At one stage this season they had a strong run but now as the important end of the season gathers pace, l wonder if Derby can hang onto a playoff place? They don't impress me. Don't know, but will Derby run foul of FFP, hope so.


1.) 13 Mar 2018 19:39:42
I agree with everything you say 51, apparently they have got a new theme tune by Status Quo, DOWN DOWN DEEPER AND DOWN 😂

2.) 13 Mar 2018 20:28:46
The game can be summarised very simply.
Neither Rowett or Direby could afford to lose this game. Mad Mel has his trigger finger cocked.
Direby's weakness is their defence being turned as the are all old and slow.
Direby set up to stop Forest either side of the halfway from moving the ball quickly and exposing their defence.
Direby players took in turns to frustrate the flow of the game and made sure they did not foul within shooting distance.
Targeted Tomlin who achieved most fouled player in a Championship match.
Job Done.
Simples. No more hot air please!
Forest showed character and improvement in resilience which bodes well for the future.
With a more experienced centre forward we might have nicked it.
Game Over. Please move on!
Next up 3 points against The Blunts.

3.) 14 Mar 2018 00:19:15
Red it was a derby every game against the sheep we show character and resilience there was nothing going forward even when they were down to 10 men and we could of lost the game 2-3 times if it weren’t for pants nothing excited me about that game and didn’t see any improvement apart from our goalkeeper

4.) 14 Mar 2018 12:38:49
3 out the last 5 years we have been tonked 5,3 and 2 nil by the sheep and not put up a fight so please stop being so contrary just for the sake of it and have the good grace to admit we are in a better place with Karanka in place?

5.) 14 Mar 2018 12:43:06
Not exciting but as mentioned the reds showed resilience.
We would have lost that game 2 months ago.
The spine of the team is practically there, we now need to get the flesh on.
Full back, and a couple of forwards.
This is a tough league and resilient teams often make promotion over flare teams.
Your Burnley’s, Derby ,WBA and Stoke, weren’t flare teams but got up.
There are obviously exceptions.
Overall the ship has steadied and the manager can now look forward to the summer window to add a bit of flare up front .



11 Mar 2018 10:53:18
Be at the game today, feeling OK. Thanks for all your good wishes it means a lot. Do we have a team today that will upset Derby's feelings, you bet. The more the better.

Missed out on the match yesterday, due to the weather. It was a bit to cold for me as l am receiving treatment for cancer. Can l say a big thank you to all the staff at City Hospital for their care and devotion, especially through this period of bad weather. Soon be fighting fit and putting my four pennyworth in on hear. Good win yesterday.


1.) 04 Mar 2018 13:12:43
Sorrry to hear that mate, too many good people stricken by cancer. Hope you get well very soon and choose a game that’s a fine spectacle as your next one.

Yesterday was nothing special but a win really is a win. Birmingham wanted it badly yesterday as it was a chance to keep the dogfight as far reaching as possible. We shouldn’t under estimate what a big win it was for us and we shouldn’t judge the performance too much as it was a unique situation yesterday, the type we often capitulate in.

Thank goodness we won.

2.) 04 Mar 2018 13:15:09
Good luck for a quick recovery.

3.) 04 Mar 2018 13:28:32

7.) 04 Mar 2018 14:09:53
Best wishes to 51 and 79. Life can be unpredictable for all of us. So let Nottingham Forest try to help inspire your recovery so you can watch their new qualities. A manager that is not afraid to bite the bullet and change the team who supports youth and persists with a wining side despite his bench. Tuesday maybe expect some changes as AKA will know the importance of Sunday which I will be the usual fiesty affair. My prediction is 4 points out of a possible 6

8.) 04 Mar 2018 14:22:53

Hey yellowman, to put things like that on here is not on,I am asking you to put up or shut up.

Well to all the people who know me was l right, or was l right . If the above is correct then their we are . The deal can still be saved but Fawaz treats life like it owes him big time and has expectations above his station . He now has to crawl wherever he goes and the Americans can now dictate better terms, what an absolute idiot . He now will never get what he wants, now he will lose a lot more money than before. Hope the Football League now get involved and fine him gig time .

Come on Skegsjay it would be great if we won, in your posts you say we should win 3~0 I hope so. You hope your on safe ground in your posts , hope you go to QPR and give your full support no matter what.Remember Gary Brazil took over from the Frenchman before MW came, did you want Gary to run things and not bring in MW.Now MW has gone and Gary took over before AK and now you want Gary to run things, or have I got it wrong, again.

Just remember that their is another team on the pitch trying just as hard not to loose, being paid good bucks and their supporters have also spent their hard earned money. They also want a return for their investment.The thing for me last night was the ref, he had control of the game to start with, and slowly lost it,then trying to control it with yellow cards.One linesman called a forest player offside in the second half and clearly was yards onside, poor.These poor decisions can decide clubs fates , we have seen more poor decisions than poor forest displays and that's saying something.
