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.

And most of you said carvalho is a waste of 13million.
Bet you’ll all be saying how good he is now.
I’ve said from the start he’s a good quality player and needs a games to acclimatise to the league. That goal will do him the world of good and will show even more quality now.


1.) 19 Sep 2018 22:24:01
Level above.

2.) 19 Sep 2018 22:26:49
Up until his goal I thought he was a total passenger that looked lightweight with the game passing him by.
Took his goal really well though and hopefully we'll see more of what he can do now.
Still think Dias is a far bigger threat going forward though.

3.) 19 Sep 2018 22:53:39
He wasn’t in it in the first half but grew in to the game and showed his quality

4.) 19 Sep 2018 22:54:43
See I disagree there Fred as he moves about the pitch and can be hard to pick up.
From the first time I saw the portuguese lads I thought they were quality,Bournemouth they looked superb,I like their pace and movement,not sure the older players are on their wavelength at times and that might be your problem with him ??

5.) 19 Sep 2018 23:05:38
Agree Fred- Dias looks loads better with Janko behind him - 10 decent mins isn’t enough to sell him to me in one hit but I felt there was promise tonight. I was cursing carvalho but he really grew into the game late in the first half and I had a feeling he’d have a good second half. Still seems like we have another couple of gears that we don’t know we have !

6.) 19 Sep 2018 23:34:46
Colback was our best player did all the nasty horrible stuff 1st half especially;Red Fred correct in my opinion, TIL the goal carvallhio had been a passenger but his goal was a glimpse of the quality he possesses hope now we see more and more of it

7.) 20 Sep 2018 06:32:23
thought he went missing in the 1st half but 2nd half when he found space and was aloud to run at the defence we saw what he is capable of, he should be the type of player that grabs the game by the scruff of the neck and bosses it but personally i still wanna see more before i make a judgement on him

8.) 20 Sep 2018 10:32:21
Yeah, Carvalho was quiet early on but grew into the game and his link-up with Osborn for the goal was special.

This kid needs to play as often as possible, he makes things happen, we look a better attacking force with him in the side and he'll only get better as he develops and acclimatizes to Championship football.

9.) 20 Sep 2018 11:03:47
Some of you lot watching a different player to me.

He wants the posession a bit quicker than he's getting. He ain't a passenger, he's just waiting for the ball.

When he gets it, he's a step ahead. Class act.

10.) 20 Sep 2018 11:41:19
Cjay,When he’s not got the ball he’s a passenger whether it’s his fault or not, and let’s not get carried away 1good finish in 8 games doesn’t make him messi, so calm down and let’s see if he can start influencing games that’s what you pay 13mlll for at championship level,I know your always right and everyone else wrong but let’s wait and see how his season develops

11.) 20 Sep 2018 12:04:42
When he hasn't got the ball, he's either trying to shake markers or he's pressing the opposition to get it back.

He's a 13 million pound player, teams won't give him space to breathe. At worst he's occupying 2 opposition players creating space for others.

Passenger, nope.

12.) 20 Sep 2018 12:57:16
Cjay think it’s you that’s been watching a different player , teams have had far more trouble containing cash than carvallhio



08 Sep 2018 10:17:54
I actually the signing of Janko will benefit us because he’s a very attacking full back as is Osborn. I believe we will see a chance in tactics that allows the full backs to act as the side options allowing the two wingers to play as inside forwards to support the striker and the CAM (Carvalho). The two cdms (whoever they may be, my preference would be Geddy when fit and Yacob) as it would allow Yacob to drop back to form a back 3 while attacking and then Geddy can be the box to box midfielder that does a bit of everything. I believe that this would work a treat for us! We wouldnscore plenty and be fairly solid at the back.
My team then -
Pants / Steele (been fairly impressed with Steele tbh)
Subs - Pants/ Steele, Figs, Darikwa, Greek CDM, Dias, Goncalves and Grabban.
I actually think this system would suit Dias as it would allow him to take players in and use his pace to run and the defence while having support. But cash and Lolley start for me based in form.


1.) 08 Sep 2018 14:33:53
Osborn is not a left back. The defence would be weaker with him there.

2.) 08 Sep 2018 16:34:12
Agreed psycho. I can't believe any forest supporter still thinks Osborn can play left back.
I like Ben but left back. Noooo!



26 Aug 2018 11:54:38
If we are letting Brereton go then I would like to see us sign Dominic Solanke on loan. I personally think he’s a good all round striker and although he only scored a few last season for Liverpool he didn’t play many minutes as most of his appearances were 10 min cameos at the end of the game.
I reckon he’d do a solid job in this league and would bag 15+ goals.


1.) 26 Aug 2018 16:56:47
Liverpool would probably swap him for Brereton?



26 Jun 2018 13:26:56
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. 😆 😆 😆

Good player at this level wouldn’t mind him if I’m honest only on a contract until end of the season though

In fairness carvalho has played quite well imo, always looks for a key pass and can dribble to not to mention his work rate.
He just needs a bit more time to adapt and then I’m sure the goals and assists will start rolling in

I’m with nick on that one. Just because they don’t score or assist doesn’t mean they’re not good players. All of the Portuguese lads have very good work rates and you need that in this league so give them one to find their feet a bit more and the goals will come.
But until then at least get behind them and not slag them off

Ojo also a very good player!!! Did well for Fulham last year, surprised that he isn’t maybe staying as a back up winger. Would be a quality addition

Because it took a deflection. . he was diving / movingly in the correct direction to start with and then cane off Hefele I think and went the opposite way. Nothing he could have done

In fairness I think we have improved, the squad looks stronger in paper. And given a couple more games I think the team will click, AK will know his best 11 and matchday squad. People have the expectations of promotion because of the money spent. For me this season we must finish top 10. Then in summer add say 3 quality players and we’ll be there or there abouts next season. Our squad is capable of a top 6 push this season but in reality I expect top 10 and that is definitely achieveavle.
Overall I’d say there has been an improvement. It takes time for players to gel and once they have we’ll be a top team. But no promotion this season but next season we’ll have a real chance.

I can’t believe some of you are slagging carvalho off saying he’s not good enough. If anything he’s been one of our better players from an attacking sense bar Lolley and cash. I think he’s done fairly well considering it’s a complete new league and lifestyle.
Were people seriously expecting him to be as good as neves at wolves? Because if you were then oh dear. The difference is neves was playing regularly for Porto whereas carvalho was more of a fringe player. But imo he’s looked fairly decent so far. If he hasn’t started adding more gold and assists to his game in a months time then yeah I would consider him to be a waste of money. But reserve that judgment for a bit.
Fickle fans theses days *sigh*

Played a few times for spurs last year and seemed to do well. I heard commentators saying he has a very bright future and he could break into the team regularly but then tripper improved another level.
Would be a great signing imo!

thanks for the reply. Haven’t seen too much of him and didn’t realise that he was rated so highly!


{Ed001's Note - he was outstanding last season, which is why he is Brazil's number one, rather than Ederson.}
