Just got back off holiday and used East Midlands airport. While I was there, there were two men in forest suits looking like they were waiting for somebody. Not sure if it was for a player or member of staff but just thought I’d pass this on. Potentially a new singing ?


1.) 24 Jun 2018 20:37:00
Soudani coming in for his medical.

2.) 24 Jun 2018 20:52:32
Ah that makes sense then! Thanks Gazza

3.) 24 Jun 2018 21:10:50
I notice Soudani plays with a No. 2 on his back - closet right back? Seems a cracking player.

4.) 24 Jun 2018 23:41:11
Forest "suits" that will be Robin and Little John in their Lincoln Green then picking up "The Friar" aka Soudani the man who will be condeming sheep to purgatory?

5.) 25 Jun 2018 05:15:39
Hopefully it is soudani and I hope he tears the league apart.
Would love to see him band in 3 against fwanks sheep.



11 Jun 2018 22:16:55
3 signings to be concluded by Saturday - Goncalves, Carvalho and Soudani. Max Clark will follow once he isn’t back off his holiday.
I then expect us to sign another full back that can play both lb and rb. A gk. at least 1 cm potentially 2 (Marney and Colback most likely) then the Scunthorpe winger could join too. AK will also make a decision on which
other striker he wants Marriott, Hugill and kodjia are on his wish list.
In terms of outgoings I expect to see Lichaj,mance, Kapino, McKay, Grant, Clough, Walker, vellios, Murphy then at least one of Worrall or Osborn.
Forest hoping to bring in around 12 million in sales minimum while spending up to 25-30 million.

Daddies and HP?😊

3.) 12 Jun 2018 13:54:30
Nice compilation of all those linked to the club already _TheRedMan_ slow day at the office is it LOL



01 Jun 2018 16:43:48
2 signings imminent! Confirmed either later today or tomorrow!


1.) 01 Jun 2018 17:07:36
Sarah Clapson is behind the times then, nothing on her webchat.

2.) 01 Jun 2018 21:24:01
She needs to change her name?
Her son won't stand a chance 😂😂😂

3.) 01 Jun 2018 22:02:37
According to a couple of people her marks for Forest players means she talks Claptrap.l

4.) 02 Jun 2018 12:41:16
She’s been saying we could do worse than bring back Olly Burke. I know many of you would disagree but I think it would be a great signing. Ten times the player than the likes of Brereton, probably way out of our price range now.

5.) 03 Jun 2018 00:32:08
We should be looking at Dean Henderson Man U keeper been on loan at Shrewsbury he is very good IMO. Norwich have been linked with him.

With a few people saying on here about Danny Ings, there is potential for that now with Liverpool looking like they will allow him to leave. The only question is, would he drop down to the championship?
Personally I think he is better than championship level but you never know! Would be a quality addition


1.) 26 Jun 2018 15:13:32
60k a week

2.) 26 Jun 2018 15:55:25
Yeah we definitely can’t give him thag

3.) 26 Jun 2018 16:22:14
Would be a great addition and think he would like the idea of karankas project just be wages might be a problem.

4.) 26 Jun 2018 16:36:17
Yeah I agree skegs

5.) 26 Jun 2018 18:48:06
More chance of signing "Danny" Dyer!!!😂😂😂



18 Jun 2018 09:23:21
GK - Pants
RB - Darikwa
CB - Figs
CB - Dawson
LB - Clark
CDM - Watson
CDM - Colback (or an alternative?)
CAM - Carvalho
LM - Goncalves
RM - Lolley
ST - Kodjia (my choice) /Grabban

Yiadom (Barnsley can cover RB and LB)
Bridcutt (or another CM/CDM)
Another striker (Bamford or Nelson)


Sounds like a solid team that would certainly challenge. I would quite like to see is sogn a quality CM/CDM to play alongside Watson, I wouldn’t mind seeing Lansbury back because he’s the type of player that we need for that position imo.


1.) 18 Jun 2018 10:34:14
Maddison. pretty expensive to have on bench

2.) 18 Jun 2018 11:43:57
True Brazilred but ignore we want to challenge we have to have players like him on the bench. It would be between him and Lolley to start imo but I just edge towards Lolley because he’s got more championship experience

3.) 18 Jun 2018 11:55:43
No Osborn?? Redman ??

4.) 18 Jun 2018 12:12:50
TRM, i doubt he would move to us knowing he would be a bench warmer.

5.) 18 Jun 2018 13:03:33
Come on England. don't let me down. I hammered the Brazilians yesterday about how average their team is. Let's get off to a flyer. England could win this (how many years have I said that ?). There is not really anybody who has set the world alight yet (Germany, Argentina, Brazil, France, no Italy or Holland of course, Russia looked dangerous but who did they play ?). Thoughts ?

6.) 18 Jun 2018 13:41:32
Maddison ruled out.

7.) 18 Jun 2018 13:56:33
Has the manager decided he is not tall enough. 😆 😆 😆



18 Jun 2018 09:19:00
Chant/song for next season when we (hopefully 🤞🏻) get promoted:
We’ve conquered all of this league
And we’re never going to stop
From Leeds down to dierby we’ve won the f****** lot
Brian Clough to Aitor
The fields of the city ground
We are loyal supporters
And we come from Nottingham
Allez allez allez allez allez allez etc.


1.) 18 Jun 2018 13:34:29
I think you need to go on the oasis song writing course. There is only one rule, and that is the words must rhyme, but don't have to be relevant to the previous verse. If it rhymes, it's fine!



17 Jun 2018 11:22:25
Just an Idea but I wouldn’t mind kemar roofe from Leeds joining. He’s versatile can play as a striker, behind the striker or on either wing. He could be a good option on the bench for us and would be much cheaper than Maddison or Tomlin. I think he’s been a good player and could do a job for us.


1.) 17 Jun 2018 14:00:33
57 for me too ,Eddie Bailey the main man !

Eddie,s nickname ,dead legs

2.) 17 Jun 2018 22:51:19
Carlo I have just looked up Eddie Bailey on Wikipedia. What a bloke! He was in an era when men were men and women were glad of it! Where have all the hero's gone?



03 Jun 2018 09:09:37
Just read that we supposedly have £50 million to spend this summer - marinakis wants promotion. But we will need to offload 2/3 of our good youngsters like Osborn Brereton Cash and Worrall. Out of them I’d sell Brereton and one of Osborn or Worrall.
I reckon if we sign the right type of players with the right quality we can have a real go this season. I said the other day that I expected 2 deals to be done by now that hasn’t been the case so apologies for that but we are in talks with at least 3 possibly 4 players and we look to get them tied up by next weekend.


1.) 03 Jun 2018 09:20:56
Source please

2.) 03 Jun 2018 09:37:25
I would hope that if we have anything near £50m to spend we wouldn't want or need to sell our talented young players. We need to get rid of players that are injury prone, under performing or don't fit into the Managers philosophy.
You may be surprised to hear my dream signing. Jermaine Defoe. That's 25+ goals in a Championship side creating chances.

3.) 03 Jun 2018 09:51:15
TheRedMan.Just wondering where you have read the item?

4.) 03 Jun 2018 09:58:48
50 million with 2 or 3 of our better players sold where did you read that red man

5.) 03 Jun 2018 10:27:02
50 million, I saw it on Instagram and then read an article on Twitter, I’ll try and find it and post on here later. But if we were to spends 50 million we’d need to sell some of our younger in demand players in order to not break ffp, I haven’t read thatwe are looking to sell any of them but I think we’d have to in order to comply with ffp.
I know for a fact that we are close on max Clark (told by a friend who’s a coach at hull that he’s had talks with us)
Goncalves was one of the two players I thought we’d sign by yesterday, it’s my understanding bag it will be a loan to buy.

6.) 03 Jun 2018 12:17:04
50 million, Hmmmm that's seems pretty far fetched. Don't forget FFP rules?
Look at Villa and Derby. Need I say more. Yes it worked for wolves but a huge gamble.

7.) 03 Jun 2018 12:19:11
Think redman has misread or had beer goggles on. More like 5 million then sell 2 assets to make up the rest?

8.) 03 Jun 2018 13:06:19
Pretty sure I read right. . people are saying we’re in talks to sign Lucas Perez from arsenal for 15 million. So you never know. I’m just passing on what I’ve seen.
But like I have said I expect us to sign 3 players before next weekend. Likely max Clark (I’m confident that he will happen), goncalves and the other Benfica guy.

Kept us 6 clean sheets so he can’t be that bad can he? Plus with Dawson in defence we’ll be even more solid.
Back 4 of Darikwa/Fabio, Figs, Daws and Robinson with Costel behind sounds fairly solid to me.

I reckon Boro would accept that. Still too much imo. Bamford is worth no more then 6/7 million and Fabio about 3 million.
Still need a GK, RB, LB (Fabio), CDM, ST x2 (probably Bamford/Grabban and Soudani. And we’ll get Podence on top of that.

Better than pants imo

Traore - unless AK plans to use him as our LB. apart from max Clark and the Luton guy I haven’t hesrd any real names for that position. I know a few have said they’d like George Friend.
Hopefully we can sign a quality LB.
For me we still need:
LB x2
ST x2

Its important to have a squad of around 25 in this league. Where you have a good quality 11 with some good back up options to that 11. The extra 3 players make up 3rd GK, 3rd choice ST and a versatile midfielder (Osborn or grant - but can see both going)

I think lam might stay and can provide cover at CB and CDM, not the greatest player but as a 5th choice in both positions its not a bad option

Nothing wrong with Henderson imo. He’s there to break play up and keep possession and that’s exactly what he does.
Sterling was useless and lingard well those chance he had dear oh dear what a hash he made. Tripper’s crossing was awful. Maguire didn’t do too badly thought he brought the ball out well and won headers but that was about it.
