Did we get silva for free reminds me of silenza 😜 the Portuguese lads look too light weight for me lolley stand out player again lose him were in trouble.


1.) 17 Jul 2019 10:17:30
We got everybody for nowt skegs that's why there crap. God knows what the new manager at Christmas is going to make of this lot.
Bet O'Neill is laughing is head off.

2.) 17 Jul 2019 11:00:21
Thats what i like lads give the players a fair chance. They've only had 2/ 3 training seasons and a couple of game. Why do everyone on here thinks its so easy to be a manager and to find a formula that will win everygame we play. I bet most people on here who moan plays Football Manager then thinks its so easy. Why don't they get off their butts and apply for the job when by all accounts according to them the posistion will be open again in the very near future. I love NF and been a supporter for decades and it hurts me to see what's happening to them at the mo but what we need is stability not constant changes. COYR.

3.) 17 Jul 2019 11:03:11
Keane was a very smart man.

4.) 17 Jul 2019 11:15:43
Bez they talk about being 3 weeks in front in training and pre season. Total nonsense. These guys have been playing football for 20 years. So they have 2 month off and need to be retrained?
O'Neill certainly got stability.
We've got rid of a manager who won everything and swapped him for a manager who's won nowt and signed a load of failed freebies.
Gonna be a long season my friend.

5.) 17 Jul 2019 11:28:24
Bezman you won't get stability if the owners keep buying 8 players every transfer window, the word buying I'll use loosely.
They then expect the coach to get promoted with these players and when it doesn't happen the sack the coach at xmas.
It's the owners who have got it wrong on the playing side not us fans.

6.) 17 Jul 2019 11:43:15
Everyone has an opinion of this which i uderstand and appreciate but at the end of the day football is a business now and not a sport and the man who puts money (alot of money at that) into the club has the right to say what's what. If he's not happy he has the right to change what he thinks is right and i know its a bit different in greece to here but i personally think he has the best interest for NF at heart. I know its difficult for us loyal supporters to see this but i truely think the good times is just around the corner.

7.) 17 Jul 2019 12:14:58
Bezman stop being so level headed. It’s not allowed on here πŸ˜‚.

8.) 17 Jul 2019 12:17:16
Whinging and whining and the season hasn't even started, it's a friendly, If weaknesses in certain players are spotted now, better than in the league imo, everyone is getting a chance.

God help us all when it does start, everybody duck when the rattles and dummies get thrown out:)

9.) 17 Jul 2019 12:47:23
Lol pot kettle comes to mind as I said earlier get your best 11 together and start playing them now every season and manager as done the same thing for years swap change players formations and when they think they've found there best 11 by Xmas there sacked because they can't get consistency and the merry go round starts again I don't understand what fans think there going to get with a bunch of freebies nobody else wanted and to top it off lolley will be gone very soon lucky if we make mid table this season.

10.) 17 Jul 2019 12:54:43
Sorry Redtree πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

11.) 17 Jul 2019 13:13:39
Quite interesting how you describe any forest fan that doesn't agree with your idea of a fan as a moaner or whinger.
Think you might get a shock when the season does get underway, the squad needed strengthening with a bit of quality only adomah offers that the rest are no better than we had, personally think we'll struggle and that's not moaning my friend it's just the way I see it.

12.) 17 Jul 2019 13:43:15
Hey all i'm saying is everybody should have an opinion and eveybody has the right to think what they want because i moan about NF all the time because they are so frustrating. Every NF supporter has their own ideas on how they should play but at the end of the day we are not the manager and rightly or wrongly we should at some level support the manager and hope he gets it right. On to the players that have come in we have to trust the manager again unfortunatly but look in the past when we were getting some questionable players like Kenny Burns and a few others and i would say people were thinking the same about Brian and Peter.

13.) 17 Jul 2019 13:45:48
I actually agree with you Skegs. I am hoping that’s the last we see of some players e. g. Watson, Osborn and Cash at rightback. And that match was simply to get one last look at them. We do need to be cementing our first 11 down now. As for what 79’s saying I personally love to hear negative perspectives of you grumpy whingers. Gives me a chance to bring you some positivity and wind you lot up πŸ˜‚.

14.) 17 Jul 2019 14:06:09
Good man redtree😁😁😁😁.

15.) 17 Jul 2019 14:07:03
Not any Forest fan just you two and there is no description just a statement, quite interesting how you just made that up:) .

Don't be putting words into peoples mouths now, just my fish hooks in yours, lol.

Cheer up, you may even like it!

16.) 17 Jul 2019 14:09:41
Cement our best 11.two are already missing by way of Cavalho and Yates!

17.) 17 Jul 2019 15:53:04
In reply to initial post:
- Tiago Silva reported between 1 and 2 million
- Ribeiro was a free but with 50% sell-on clause
- The rest were for free or on loan deals

Anyone know how much we got for Ansarifard, Soudani, Vellios, Grant?

18.) 17 Jul 2019 16:09:54
Lol gingerkid you read what you put and your calling everyone a whinger that posted a bad comment about last night's game.
Cant put words into your mouth as we aren't communicating by mouth
Keep happy clapping chap πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘.

19.) 17 Jul 2019 16:13:19
I am expecting 3-4 signings.

20.) 17 Jul 2019 16:46:55
Hope a couple of proven strikers. Right back and?

21.) 17 Jul 2019 18:28:51
We need centre midfielders I would go back in for Pele. Its looking like Yacob and Gueds are going and I am hoping Watson follows them.

22.) 17 Jul 2019 19:20:17
FF. Well put. it's not his fault he's folicley colour challenged.

23.) 17 Jul 2019 19:54:45
Nope still just you 2 :)

It is pretty funny you two can give it all day long to others, but can't take it yourselves, pmsl, sorry bout that princess.

(FWB, it's not your fault you can't spell follicle, 2 L's, but don't worry, I won't tell anyone, shhh) .

24.) 17 Jul 2019 21:27:40
Give what out exactly gingerkid?
And can't take what?
Let's all live in your world and just pretend everything is rosy and top six a formalityπŸ€”πŸ€”.

25.) 17 Jul 2019 22:43:05
I agree it’s not easy which is why I can’t grasp how the last two chaps weren’t given some time - given the fact it’s a very tough job and will take time.

26.) 18 Jul 2019 06:35:51
Ginger it's not your fault your a giver not a taker. You will be OK.
Most on here take the banter on the chin but others. Hmmm they to heart. And regarding I stand corrected. Thanks! 🐱.

27.) 18 Jul 2019 09:31:29
Ginger, I find, is the most diplomatic and tactful of gentlemen. Always supported me when I felt that managers were not using subs wisely. We benefit greatly from his input.



01 Jul 2019 10:02:11
And here we go linked to signing former rennes goalkeeper let the fun begin lol.


1.) 01 Jul 2019 11:01:16
I don't know about Rennes, but I've been taking lots of Rennie after recent events!

2.) 01 Jul 2019 15:12:33
What with the Man City and Rennes goalies who may be signing, plus the 3 first team goalies already on the books.The club will be well off for keepers. Perhaps one of them can play centre forward.

3.) 01 Jul 2019 16:36:13
Burncross: perhaps one of them can play in goal.I've got it! They can all play in goal, that might stop a few scores against. . maybe.

4.) 01 Jul 2019 17:20:53
Very funny S_Getty!

5.) 01 Jul 2019 17:58:05
Maybe play Pants up top 6'8" ,,he,s not really a goalie !

6.) 01 Jul 2019 18:09:01
Then play Murphy in goal. he's not really a forward!

7.) 01 Jul 2019 19:56:20
And play the manager as the mascot cause he's not really a manager 😁.

8.) 01 Jul 2019 21:01:52
You lot. πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚.

9.) 01 Jul 2019 23:10:31
I'm sure now that Terry the kit Man will be playing for us soon.



04 Jan 2019 00:29:07
As I've said before, Mr maranakis would you please come out and back karanka. I don't want any change now it's too late. back the manager, let him do his deals in January and let the fans know where they stand.


1.) 04 Jan 2019 10:22:11
Absolutely pointless in Maranakis publicly backing Krankie. It usually only means 'the manager will be sacked after the next loss'.

2.) 04 Jan 2019 12:56:12
I think theirs more to it. Our owner is determined to get rid of karanka. But his hands are currently tied because karanka as the backing of players and supporters.
But will this mean karanka isn't allowed to improve squad or even as a player like lolley sold against his wishes.
Sure we will find out either way within next week.

3.) 04 Jan 2019 13:11:03
What makes you think our owner is determind to get rid of Karanka? Surely if he was that determind he would be gone already?

4.) 04 Jan 2019 14:16:30
Red. If the owner wants rid of AK, he won't give a toss whether the players or the fans want him to stay.
He will just get rid.

5.) 04 Jan 2019 15:47:23
He would have got rid of him if he wanted to.

6.) 04 Jan 2019 17:23:04
Red. Please explain?

7.) 04 Jan 2019 20:28:44
I think some fans are still apprehensive due to the Fawaz era.
I believe AK was ready for the sack but I also believe Maranakis has backed off and is giving him time to push on after our support and the performance against the dirty.
Let's hope AK keeps the run going and make it impossible to sack him but our owner is very ambitious which we should be grateful of. . I think.
I just hope he isn't waiting for another loss to pull the trigger as that would be harsh especially if he included Chelsea

8.) 04 Jan 2019 22:42:24
Fa was bank balance. Just a feeling.
Due to all new appointments like DOF.
Possibly a new sporting director who happened to be a manager. The owners continued silence
And a week into January and their doesn't seem to be concrete rumours of new signings. When karanka had said he knew the 3/4 players he would like.

9.) 04 Jan 2019 22:57:24
It's a power struggle between marinakis and karanka,only one winner unless karanka backs downπŸ€”πŸ€”
Let's hope common sense prevails and we move on united,otherwise he'll be replaced

10.) 04 Jan 2019 23:54:17
The owner needs to realise that unlike the Greek league you can’t change managers 2-3 times a season and still win the league.last seasons teams all went with managers that had a full season,Warnock October the previous season,Fulham’s was there 2 1/2 seasons and wolves manager started end of May.

11.) 05 Jan 2019 23:29:53
Why would any serious owner feed fans insecurities by popping his head up above the parapet and making comment?
Just buy a ticket and be thankful you have a board and management team that actually know what they are doing?
I wonder which of the infamous 4 are going to bite first? 🐬🐬



02 Jan 2019 21:47:50
Jose anigo sporting director is he New manager awaiting in the wings.


1.) 02 Jan 2019 22:57:29
Stella for a year on me Skegs if that one turns out to be true.

2.) 02 Jan 2019 23:40:56
Thanks that will do me strange timing though.

3.) 03 Jan 2019 00:34:50
Not the best reviews from French fans.

4.) 03 Jan 2019 13:42:11
Skegsjay, if that happens can you see a load of French players joining us.?

5.) 03 Jan 2019 14:39:52
They aren't talking about him being the new manager, just the sporting director.

6.) 03 Jan 2019 15:05:47
799, If read Skegsjays post again you will notice he asks, even though it could be in jest could end up replacing our current manager.

7.) 03 Jan 2019 15:10:22
Perhaps he's getting a foot in the managerial door?

8.) 03 Jan 2019 17:28:38
One word 'WHY'



28 Dec 2018 00:28:14
Panic stations lol here it is forest lose at Millwall karanka is gone there's only one place this owner wants us to be and that's in the premiership that's why he bought karanka in to do a job exactly what the fans wanted nothing more nothing less I'm not keen on karanka as everyone knows but if he was doing his job I would back him he's been given the tools to do the job more than any other manager at forest and he is lacking to me I don't want to change yet another manager but as far as I'm concerned he's had a fair chance and in this owner I trust to make a 100 percent decision on what who or we need to take us back to the premiership so it's as simple as that.


1.) 28 Dec 2018 05:01:05
Good concise post skeg. πŸ‘

2.) 28 Dec 2018 07:20:23
If that's true then it's very likely going to be adios.
Our record at the Den stinks.
We're probably going to need to be 3 goals up again to get a result cus as soon as Millwall get desperate and bring Morrison on then the aerial bombardment begins and we're done for.
We couldn't defend a 2 goal lead in the home fixture.

3.) 28 Dec 2018 08:34:05
In his interview after norwich he claimed not to care if they sack him. He said he has credentials for promotion and ut took 2 and a half years at boro to acheive. He keeos banging on about time as look at how good norwich are after bejng together for a year and a half. He said the same about Derby. Time is a commodity not afforded these days so when interviewed for the job and he saud I need 2 and a half years he would not have been appointed. Either that ir the goal posts have been moved or someone is lying. He should care aboit being sacked from the most beautiful club on this planet. Its not just a job where you get compo for failing. This typifies his pigheadedness, doing things his way or no way. Sticking with clowns and 3 amigo's.
We are on the brink of losing yet another manager or him changing and becoming a legend. He cannkt change his attitude or style so be prepared. Its his call but really like he says " i just don't care "

4.) 28 Dec 2018 08:44:10
I think you’ve said exactly what the majority are thinking skeggy-the owner wants the premiership, most fans want the same but I’m sad to say I just can’t see AK delivering. We do have some talent in the squad and we all know that we could do with a bit extra in places but you just need to make sure every player knows his role,is committed and play the game to your strengths. IMO AK is too stubborn and I don’t care how many years management experience or how many badges anyone has got some of his tactics and decisions would never have gained success or given the feeling of moving forward. I can’t break down an opposing teams tactics, tell pro players how to close a game down or how to or pick out every teams weak point but I’m a just a pint and a pie supporter, the manager should be doing that,and he isn’t doing it. The fans support has been fantastic this season (albeit with some help from the big man with a smart pricing structure) the backing from the owner seems to be great (we’ll never know exactly what’s going on behind the scenes) but we still crave for consistency and leadership. Fingers crossed for 2019 but my gut feeling says we won’t have the same manager for much of it.
Best wishes to everyone for the new year and here’s hoping for some great football and plenty to cheer about in 2019 πŸ‘

5.) 28 Dec 2018 09:01:26
Well put 2tone. It really is as simple as that.

6.) 28 Dec 2018 09:12:05
Nicely put 2tone.πŸ‘

7.) 28 Dec 2018 15:08:49
Maranakis then is the problem, you need at least two seasons to get out of this league, and lots who have gone up find themselves without the players to stay up. AK needs to left alone to get on with the job otherwise yet another trigger-happy owner will spoil our chances, and the silly merry-go-round will continue. We need to support the Team and AK, changing managers might win a few games, but the problems will still persist.

8.) 28 Dec 2018 16:00:51
Forest will win at Millwall. That's as concise as it gets!

Onward & Upward

9.) 28 Dec 2018 16:05:37
Its a fair point besred but whst if you have the wrong manager.

10.) 29 Dec 2018 15:54:14
No you don’t bsered, you need a squad full of pace and power, youth blended with experience and a gung ho attitude like Wolves and Fulham last year, Leeds and Norwich this.

Create chances and score goals. I’m fed up with 4 2 3 1, it’s like watching paint dry.

2.) 08 Jul 2019 16:38:19
Surely they can't be worse than the last lot rogie πŸ™„ as you say mate time will tell.

3.) 08 Jul 2019 17:18:16
Dejavous! Am not sure seems like we are shipping out and trying to make the 3 amigo's scenario work. Underwhelmed as we ain't learning. Last year we signed 3 portuguese nobodies. Csrvalaho was and still is average at best in this tough nut league. Yeah he looked ok agsinst a reserve boro back four but really is this the quality and experience required at this level? Happily i will be proved wrong though i usually am lol
But look at the players our competitors are signing?
Carvalaho, with his price tag and worshippers on here will no doubt tear this league up now he has aclimatised. I ain't holding my breath!

4.) 08 Jul 2019 18:07:06
Totally agree Rutland Red you can count on 1 hand the number of games Cavalho was influential in. As for the other 2 total waste of space. We went down the foreigner route with Montanier to almost disastrous consequences. It doesn't fill you with confidence but I really hope like you to be proved wrong.

5.) 08 Jul 2019 18:27:12
Syred, You made me laugh with your comment about Montanier, how much did he spend on all that rubbish, Β£2m. You can not blame him when his budget was so low.

6.) 08 Jul 2019 18:56:08
The reason i say these things are that getting rid of oneil in such circumstances i would have expected an influx of marque signings, players thwt were waiting for oneil to go before signing. Tough nut seasoned players and a some up and coming flair in the lolley mould. But no its another big experiment with an unknown manager and untested amigo's. If promotion is so critical to marikinakis he is going one very strange way about it
Would you not invest in a manager who has got promotion out of this league a few times in the warnock mould? Who would bring in the right minded pro's to get the job done?
Just seems more than a little strange to be going down this tiresome path of hope and hairy fairy optimisim. I am confused, aren't some of you.

7.) 08 Jul 2019 19:10:50
I'm guessing that's why Keane and oniell really went they knew they weren't going to achieve top 6 with the list of new signings to pick from.

8.) 08 Jul 2019 19:21:11
Funny, Marquee signings, how are the club supposed to find the cash and stay within ffp.

9.) 08 Jul 2019 20:03:33
Clear out the dross. Its better spent thinning out than just adding more of the same LC.

10.) 08 Jul 2019 20:08:40
So are you now saying O’Neil walked?

11.) 08 Jul 2019 20:30:12
We will not get much for the dross, but yes they need getting rid of.
I have no problem with players coming in, if they are better than we already have, regardless of which country they are from.

Obviously the players we have signed are unproven in the Championship, we just have to hope they have been vetted properly.



07 Jul 2019 10:09:54
This season the championship next season the Portugal premier liga πŸ‡΅πŸ‡ΉπŸ˜.

2star he was a average player last season he had 1 good game followed by 3 where he went missing or wasn't bothered oniell sorted that out by putting him on the bench thought he had a right to be in eleven because of his price tag to me there's only olympiacos that we could just scrape money back for him and I would say he's probably worth 4 million at the minute if he has a good season this year it will double but we will never see the 13 million back for him not good enough.

Shed loads of rubbish at that lc and 2star can't wait for the season to kick off but I'm more worried about this season then any of the last 5 or 6 if we get 4 decent signings in before the start of the season I will be happy and please no benfica rejects onwards and upwards till at least Xmas anyway p. s we still need to get rid of a few and please please do not sell lolley.
