Forest linked with Arsenal's young Polish defender Kristian Bielik.

Made 10 appearances at the end of last season on loan at Birmingham City and Arsenal will be looking to loan him out again next season for some first-team exposure.

I am sure he would be an asset but we cannot play 2 20 year olds together at centre back if we are to challenge? He can play as a holding midfielder as well so that might be an option if he has the legs?


2.) 24 May 2017 20:54:31
Same site is linking us with an assortment of poor players.
Hope they are wrong, joe garner another one, please no;


3.) 24 May 2017 22:58:33
Not sure we need any more strikers but Garners all action, tough style of play could give us something different and prove a good foil for our less physical players, no defenders like to play against this type of dog with a bone never say die attitude .
Wouldn, t pay a lot for him or pay him a fortune but at the right price could be someone who, d respond to the current management.
CARLO.


4.) 24 May 2017 23:25:28
Paid a million last time and he gets booked more than he scores .
All action and no quality
Scored most of his goals for carlisle and preston at league one and two level.
Thats his level.


5.) 25 May 2017 15:14:49
Correct mate. We cannot afford to get it wrong this time round, reckon we need a proven Championship, no nonsense, CB, a bit of bite in midfield, we haven't anyone in those positions that makes the opposing side think twice about taking us on.


6.) 25 May 2017 15:47:56
Thing is rogie, we need players who can improve the squad and are better than we have.
I see nothing in Garner, Waghorn, Tavanier and Mckay that would improve us and none of them are good enough to hold down a regular place.
Need some midfielders and couple defenders that's all, no more strikers.


7.) 25 May 2017 18:51:53
Agreed mate. Don't think we're that far away. Bit of self belief, i.e. Ipswich game, and who knows where it can take us. 🤔🤔🤔.


8.) 25 May 2017 19:47:08
If you see nothing in Garner then where does that leave Jamie Ward who did so much in the Ipswich game, very similar two players, always in your face .
CARLO.


9.) 25 May 2017 20:17:05
Garner has been tried at this level twice and failed miserably.
Hardley scored for us and only managed 6 goals for preston in the championship before rangers paid 1.8 million for him, where he's scored 7 in Mickey mouse football.
His goals come at league 1 level.
Wardy has a bit more about him.


10.) 25 May 2017 20:23:34
Garner is not as versatile as Ward and has not cut it in the Championship. Wardy all day long for me.

Garner would do a fantastic job at The Pies!


11.) 26 May 2017 06:19:05
If ya want and ex forest player who can get in your face and put the effort and score only a few goals why don't we get simon cox back Carlo?
Fact is both aren't good enough for this league that we aren't in and they would be reserve players at best. ward is also far better than garner.
If we start buying some of the player from rangers then next season will be a bigger struggle than last.


12.) 26 May 2017 09:52:10
I'd have a punt bringing Dawson back, experienced in this league and solid.


13.) 26 May 2017 16:05:41
Could not afford his wages! Be a good signing thought.


14.) 26 May 2017 17:24:52
You forgot to add expensive .
CARLO.

Forest have taken young goalkeeper, Edward Ogbebor-Onaiwu, on trial from Charlton Ath.

The talented young goalkeeper, also being watched by Leicester City, is an English-born Nigerian who has chosen to represent his African roots at International youth level.

Forest are apprently in the running for Hertha Berlin striker - Sandro Wagner - with Hull City, Blackburn Rovers and Sheffield Wednesday as competition.

Wagner still has a year left on his contract in Germany so unless they're going to let him go for free I can't see how we can compete. Decent striker, even though he never quite cut it in the Bundesliga.

SteveSuttonsWonkyEye

1.) 18 Jul 2015 08:16:03
Scored three goals in the last ten years. Just what we need.


2.) 18 Jul 2015 09:49:47
He once was at Bayern München, decent striker but never got the chance to shine in Berlin - would be worth a go and is going to be released by Hertha. That is what I said a year ago - raid the German lower tiers or out of favour players of the Bundesliga. Wagner never scored many goals in Germany but it is a huge difference playing against Bayern or Dortmund or in the case of Forest - against Rotherham and Derby ;-)

Could rip Championship defences apart. Looking forward to seeing him in a forest shirt


3.) 18 Jul 2015 12:28:40
We have enough strikers who two in two seasons


 

 

12 Sep 2014 17:14:08
Louis Laing on his way over the river to County if you believe the local rag. Loan deal, obviously.

I think that would be a good deal for all parties involved.

SteveSuttonsWonkyEye

1.) 12 Sep 2014 17:23:44
Done deal, will be good for him to get regular football and give SP chance to see him in competitive matches.


2.) 14 Sep 2014 17:51:47
Great to send the lad on loan but quite frankly I wouldn't lend them anything, much sooner see us help other local clubs whose deluded fans aren't continuously dreaming of an implosion at forest - and are quite vociferous about it as well. Sooner they go bust the better as far as I'm concerned.

Forest have appointed Kevin MacDonald, the former Aston Villa under-21 manager, to their coaching staff.

The Scotsman, who has been working behind the scenes at the club all summer and led the recent training camp in Valencia, will coach the club's under-18 side.

SteveSuttonsWonkyEye

1.) I watched my local team underwood villa play forest u18 in a friendly at bracken park underwood in July. The forest squad were coached by Steve Sutton Kevin McDonald and jack lester, Nigel jemson was also with them but I think his lad was playing for forest as a trialist so probably just watching rather than being involved. Incidentally forest were awesome, winning 12-1 whilst playing with ten men to try to balance it up a bit!


2.) Think McDonald would have been better employed with the under 21's. Not sure about Gilligan's. Am I right in saying that Gilligan has in the past been part of Forest's coaching staff.


3.) Ed is this the guy who was linked to manage us a few times?

{Ed034's Note - I don't recall him being seriously linked


4.) @BrinsleyRed yes he was there as I was playing for underwood in that game and I have to say there is some strong talent in that academy! Looking hopeful for the future!


5.) Yes he was linked to us as a manager a while ago

People moaning about rotation is doing my nut in.

PM is doing a great job so far, we've recruited well and we're playing an entertaining brand of football. Rotation is one of his policies and let's not forget we're in a period of playing 8 games in little over a month (Sept 11 - Oct 14) , so rotation is probably a shrewd move at the moment.

We've not even made it to Christmas and a lot of fans are moaning and criticising, which to me is ludicrous. Let PM get on with it and enjoy the entertainment for once.

SteveSuttonsWonkyEye

1.) 19 Sep 2016 15:33:47
Rotation is fine if you've got a real need but at the moment PM needs to establish his 1st choice 11. He, like any good manager should always pick his best team and if that's not possible make the odd change. 5/ 6 changes every game is not going to work. Players that play together build understanding and work as a team. At this moment in time that isn't happening. I'll just mention 2 teams, Barnsley/ Huddersfield. Same team the majority of the time. Tell me we are not as capable as those 2?


2.) 19 Sep 2016 15:36:03
Most of the so called rotation is due to injuries.


3.) 19 Sep 2016 15:37:22
I meant to add also, Ranieri at Chelsea was constantly tinkering. Ranieri at Leicester wasn't. The difference = Champions but more importantly a team. It's quite simple really.


4.) 19 Sep 2016 17:08:17
I reckon the rotation policy will settle down a bit more when a) we have fewer injuries and b) we emerge from the frantic first few months of the season.

Most months of the season only contain 4-5 games but with the League Cup and international windows the opening few months are always hectic - Seven games in August and six games in September is quite hard going. 14 games in 57 days is a game every 4 days!


5.) 19 Sep 2016 18:20:43
It's doing my nut in because most of the rotation has been down to injuries/ suspensions. Also with all the new players that have come in towards the end of the transfer window, how on earth is he suppose to know so soon who his best 11 are. Hats off to PM, doing a great job!


 

 

01 Jul 2016 17:18:52
Floyd Ayite has signed for Fulham so that one is out of the picture. Shame, looked a promising link.

Lars Veldwijk attracting interest from China.

Could be an early Christmas present for Forest, the Chinese usually pay good money (usually over the odds) and we could get shot of a player that, for one reason or another, has not been a success.

Even just £3-4m would be nice.

SteveSuttonsWonkyEye

1.) 19 Apr 2016 13:06:21
be lucky to get 3/ 4 million let alone 3-4 million.


2.) 19 Apr 2016 13:26:13
If they offer 300 to 400k I would snatch their hands off!


3.) 19 Apr 2016 13:44:46
Ok, maybe just £1-2m would do it :)


4.) 19 Apr 2016 13:53:24
I'd take 500k and reinvest on youth.


 

 

11 Apr 2016 16:11:52
According to social media and various other NFFC forums there is a planned 75th minute 'walk-out' in the offing for tonight's game v Brighton and HA.

Not only is it bad timing but it also seems a bit mis-directed. What are we protesting exactly? Is it clear? Not to me it's not and it's a terrible idea anyway. This kind of things need a clear objective and needs to be planned properly. Too soon for me.

Anyone in favour?

SteveSuttonsWonkyEye

1.) 11 Apr 2016 16:51:45
I ain't stoppin that late!


2.) 11 Apr 2016 16:58:11
Be better if everyone turned their backs @46 mins/ stroke of half time because that's the same number of mins as points collected.
Should keep them turned until everyone had left the pitch too.

Don't think it's protest time to be fair. We always knew this season was going to be garbage but it's no excuse for some of the football that's been played and maybe that's a good enough reason for some.

No ones happy apart from those who got paid to produce such rubbish.

A point a game ain't good enough after four years of so called building and stability.


3.) 11 Apr 2016 17:18:38
I know things aren't great at the moment but booing players and protesting about who knows what isn't going to help anyone. Stupid and pointless.


4.) 11 Apr 2016 18:30:22
I can't manage to get to the game tonight but i think the fans should sing and cheer the team on, God knows we need all the help we can get, protests against the players is futile, it is the owner we should target, he thinks he is a one man band, this is a famous club he is ruining, get the back room sorted and then step back. I would welcome a buy out from someone who knows how to run an English club 😡.


 

 

27 Feb 2016 14:12:15
Today's line-up for "exciting" foorball is.

De Vries, Lichaj, Jokic, Mancienne, Mills, Vaughan, Tesche, Cohen, Osborn, Ward, Oliveira. SUBS: Evtimov, Hobbs, Gardner, Grant, Mendes, Walker Blackstock.

SteveSuttonsWonkyEye

1.) 27 Feb 2016 14:17:58
Cohen has got a start, Walker might come on Mendes will replace Tesche?


2.) 27 Feb 2016 15:46:29
Oh God. stop crying, Wonky.

The whingeing on here is ridiculous. This season is all about transition and we're still managing to compete. Just calm down.


3.) 27 Feb 2016 16:57:58
We didn't even compete today, just laid down and died.

If you've ever been involved with, or employed by a football club, UTF, then you'd know that word does get around. People gossip and information circulates. Hence why many things come to light before they are officially announced. I'm not saying the Osborn offers are 100% fact, just that someone I know close to the club has also corroborated the story.

If you don't like rumours and gossip, mate, then WTF are you doing on this site? I'd try Mumsnet if you're just looking for idle chit-chat.

Just to add to the rumour mill with my tenuous connections.

One of the caterers that frequent my place of work also does the catering at Pride Park and has confirmed the above rumour to be true. Derby have indeed made bids for Ben Osborn. Apparently.

It's 'Iacovitti' with an 'I' - Pronounced Yacovitti, it's an Italian surname.

Not a dig at you personally, alberto, just the hundreds of fans I've yet to see get his name right.

Then again, Alex is Scottish, so balls knows how he'll pronounce it. Och.

People that want to see us blow millions immediately after the sale of Britt aren't proper football fans. They lack understanding of the situation Forest are in and probably have little understanding of football as a whole.

They judge players via YouTube clips and rate them on their transfer fees. The more expensive they are the better they must be. Every football club has them, there's lots of them unfortunately. They're usually the ones that shout the loudest too, especially on match day.

Is Brereton a Forest fan? He's from Blythe Bridge near Stoke and he's spent time in both the Stoke City and Man United Youth Teams before he joined us a couple of years ago.

When we do get a handsome sum for Britt I really do hope we don't just spunk the vast majority of it on a big-signing replacement. That's the worst possible idea. What's to say the replacement will score as many goals as Britt? Chances are he won't and we've just wasted millions. Again.

I'd rather see the continued, modest, spending on shrewd signings that best fit a system that MW would like to implement.

Spunking £££'s on fees and contracts for the likes Hooper, Rhodes, Gestede etc. is exactly the kind of thing Fawaz would've done to keep the masses satisfied. It's not the way forward.
