You can,t keep a good man down!
Fawaz is now sueing the new owners for 4.5 million .
It could only happen at Nottingham Forest ,hope all his old fans on here still love him.


1.) 12 Feb 2018 17:47:05
Knock those thumbs down off Fawaz!

2.) 12 Feb 2018 18:35:20
My understanding is that the claim against Fawaz is by the CLUB and the counter claim is against the CLUB. Nothing to do with the new owners.

3.) 15 Feb 2018 10:03:39
Spot on Ped. It's little wonder the manager and team is always under pressure when the fans cannot even get basic facts correct!



10 Feb 2018 20:15:07
Come on statisions, is this the worst start by any new manager in the history of NF ?


1.) 10 Feb 2018 21:37:48
Without a doubt and I hate the manager Merry go round but he needs to go now and take his dole queue footballers with him.

2.) 11 Feb 2018 08:41:27
Please tell me you're joking? He needs to go? Speechless

3.) 11 Feb 2018 08:59:35
No T dog seen enough of senior Megson owners have made a massive mistake.

4.) 11 Feb 2018 09:06:25
Agree with FF79! He was my first choice to take over from MW. I know it's early but these days a new manager needs to come in and make a good early impression. OK against Wolves the new manager factor worked. Since then we've been totally useless! I expect a new manager to come in and at least show improvement in the team. We haven't scored in something like 400 mins and our defence has got worse! The signings are all scraps. Reminds me of last season when Maranakis was pulling the strings and we signed a load of dross! There is a reason nobody wanted these players and a few of them haven't played since the summer

5.) 11 Feb 2018 10:00:49
I was saying that about these signings before the game yesterday.
They are bad signings barring 4 and even they aren't fit panic buying at its worst and will probably stop us spending in the summer now.
The owners have seriously cocked up and gone back on their word for bringing stability back to the club.

6.) 11 Feb 2018 12:08:22
Yep! Lolley could be a good signing but not convinced by the rest. This Greek keeper is meant to be very good. Would rather we sign players from League 1 looking to step up a level than a load of washed up has beens that have been free agents or training with the kids since summer! If we go down this season Fawaz won't look so bad will he. Gutted because I had genuine optimism when the new owners came in. I know we have FFP issues but after getting 15m for BA I thought we may spend a bit of cash on improving the team. The squad is no better than last season.



09 Feb 2018 18:58:14
Looks like we have a new manager, watching East Midlands Today tonight !


1.) 09 Feb 2018 20:34:12
Go on then Carlo, explain por favor.

2.) 09 Feb 2018 20:43:05
Hang on a minute Trev,he's watching it today. Tonight.
Give him chance.

3.) 09 Feb 2018 20:43:54
Take a look at tonight's edition on catchup!
Las Noticias Falsas

4.) 09 Feb 2018 21:03:25
Is that treatable Carlo?
Don't fancy catching that.

5.) 09 Feb 2018 21:46:21
What you,ve certainly isn't treatable and your never going to grow out of it now!

6.) 09 Feb 2018 22:08:36
Just seen it Carlo. Well, Karanka's days were numbered. He only signed a whole new team. Not good enough for us Red Dogs is it?

7.) 09 Feb 2018 22:21:03
Lol Carlo.😂😂



28 Dec 2017 10:47:49
I'm beginning to see parallels between MW and Fawaz, both initially came to the club giving fans optimism for the future but with both men this soon eroded.
Both seem to believe it's my way or the highway and be unwilling to take advice about Championship football.
Strange decisions seem to happen with both, things that to fans just don't make sense.

Fawaz led us down the road to nowhere, let's hope MW can change his dogmatic attitude before he too goes right down that same road a road that will surely lead to League one!


1.) 28 Dec 2017 11:14:04
Carlo you're bang on with your comments.

2.) 28 Dec 2017 11:23:37
Carlo MW will not listen or change from his dogmatic ways. Buying murphy and dumping velios is just an example of wasting good resources. Buying cummings and playing him wide and nkt letting ward let rip frkm midfield are just a few examples of this idiotic man. Velios maybe no world beater but neither is murphy. The infrastructure above MW is placed to give him cartblanche with the football side of stuff and all we have is complicated ideas hence frequently going a goal down early as the players are head numb from confusional coaching. Consitancy comes from a settled formation. Tell me that the situation is not chaotic.

3.) 28 Dec 2017 14:34:24
Velios will score goals in this league but only if he's on the bloody pitch. Put him on the bloody pitch!!

4.) 29 Dec 2017 21:41:19
Carlo very good points made.
Both of the same mould.



26 Dec 2017 10:45:05
I know we're only fans and year after year we put our cash into the club and we've come to except the mushroom treatment (fed manure and left in the dark ) but I know many of us would like an explanation about the Vellios situation. it's never been answered on Radio Nottingham, In the NP or team talk. the only thing I've heard is that his father is disgusted at how he's treated.

Surley the club could put out a reason for his exclusion. I know most of us think he's been treated unfairly. remember, a club is nothing without its fans!


1.) 26 Dec 2017 11:04:05
Great post Carlo, totally agree
We all know MW has his favourites and is stubern as hell which concerns me.
You never know he may have been visited by 3 ghosts over the festive period??
I will be there today regardless but would love to see him change his outlook

2.) 26 Dec 2017 13:47:24
Very true carlo. who what happens behind closed doors.
It would be nice to know what's happening with velios.
Hopefully as an Xmas he got a book on football tactics and how to make your defence defend effectively.

3.) 26 Dec 2017 17:46:15
Well just got back from the game, a very unhappy fan.
Walker starting to look good as a winger so he plays him up front alone?, Brereton scored a couple lately looking better through the middle so he is played on the wing?
Treore available but not selected continuing with Osborne at left back?
3 down before we throw on the subs?
Warbo keeps saying we are a young team but he selects players, positions and formations?
The board must be very concerned with what they saw today

4.) 26 Dec 2017 18:20:44
Think he's going to Olympiakos.

The second in command dropped it out in the media a few weeks back and had to make up some lies to cover his tracks.

There was talk of an investigation because of player registration/ownership irregularities but I didn't hear anything further.

The Olympiakos guy said when asked. "Velios already belongs to Olympiakos"?
It caused quite a stir.

5.) 26 Dec 2017 18:30:15
If that's correct 22 then let's hope Maranakis is able to pay an over inflated price for him so we can balance the books and buy new.
Not that we need another striker with the 4-2-3-1 formation Warbo loves as we have plenty of goal scoring bench warmers as it is

6.) 27 Dec 2017 15:53:08
Warbo keeps saying same carp each game I'm sure all the managers of late have been given the same excuse book I personally don't think we should go through managers like socks but I do think that mw not right for the reds but it boils down to the same think who do we try I would go for clough Burton are struggling in the league but he's done a good job at each club not just one

AK bringing new style to football"slow slow quick quick slow "


1.) 21 Apr 2018 11:12:43
Hey carlo not seen any quick yet !!!!

2.) 21 Apr 2018 12:06:27
I missed the last two home games holidays and illness. The highlights I watched show that forest could have won both games easily with Brereton having a good quantity of chances that in the future will see him the right side of the woodwork. The highlights might be biased - I can’t comment on that but it’s difficult to fully embrace all of the views about football we play. We create enough chances to win games - and would if those chances were taken. Let’s give he man a preseason before we put the crusade to undermine Karanka into over drive. He might be as bad as the rest, but what I’m lobbying for is to not be expecting top six football after 3 months. Karanaka will play abrigjt game that’s his style for sure . In this league on limited means there isn’t really a better option.

3.) 21 Apr 2018 12:53:20
I agree 2star. He is as good as we are likely to get at the moment but I thought the same about Warburton too but like it or not the owner decided to move on and so must we.

For those who witnessed it the Preston game was a bit of a watershed moment this season and I am not sure the fall out from that is yet complete.

Top 6 would be great but top 10 for me will be quite ok sfter last few years



20 Apr 2018 16:49:11
Is anything being planed next year to commemorate our 20 year anniversary,20 years out of the big time
.sorry my
grammar is a bit off but back in the mother land and wi-fi poor.


1.) 20 Apr 2018 18:19:17
Yes mate, there will be a "Celebrity All Stars v The Loanee's Comemerative,20th Centenary, Anniversary, Milestone, Extravaganza,Charity match". some of the Celebrity side on display will include the likes of,"Vagner,Honey G,Lionel Blair,to name a few!!!

2.) 20 Apr 2018 18:40:14
Yes promotion 😁

3.) 20 Apr 2018 21:39:41
Rogie that's class 🖒🖒🍻🍻



20 Apr 2018 08:37:20
On behalf of the fans who are being ripped off I urge the team to send the bas----- down!
Trot them off!




17 Apr 2018 15:43:34
Warrnock said he was allowing Tomlin to go out on loan because they couldn,t get him fit,was he right?


1.) 17 Apr 2018 17:26:20
A big fat yes from me carlo

2.) 17 Apr 2018 19:03:54
you got one letter wrong carlo sort ya spell checker

3.) 17 Apr 2018 20:00:05
Sorry for not picking choosy ,but shouldn't we begin a sentence with a capital letter and end it with a full stop? Wot ya reckon ?😬

4.) 17 Apr 2018 21:30:03
A.For i is that better sgetty.



15 Apr 2018 11:20:20
Glad our dredful run come to an end .
The reason our form as been so poor IMO is the signing of 10 players in Jan.
After beating Wolves the maximum number of signings should have been 4 ,that's more than enough to blend in at one go ?
To sign 10 was totally disproportionate and if the 3at the bottom wern,t so poor it would have cost us.
I hope common sense returns over the summer!


1.) 15 Apr 2018 12:08:18
Carlo , you obviously didn’t go to the Preston game then? Fair enough you’re saying it as you are seeing but any manager worth his salt would have reacted and maybe overreacted to that performance. The team that MW put together was s***. The team that AK has put together is dull and lacks any firepower, his main failing is to not address the fire power.

2.) 15 Apr 2018 15:31:01
Yes I did go to the PNE game but 10 signings in Jan ,must another record that AK has broken along with the new longest without a goal record he now holds !

3.) 15 Apr 2018 15:33:57
On the money their 2 star i to was at the preston game the worse performance i have seen in many a year and their have been plenty ak was dead right to get in new players and in the summer hope he gets rid of more players i'm going to bide my time about renewing my season card to see if their will be quality bought in.

4.) 15 Apr 2018 17:17:28
Managers can’t win if he or any manager hasn’t addressed our s*** team in Jan we’d have all kicked off. At least he tried.

5.) 15 Apr 2018 18:48:54
Ok Carlo you keep burying your head and pretend we were decent before the change of manager.Im sure AK has said he only planned on signing 4/5 players then saw how fragile,weak and spineless we were.

6.) 15 Apr 2018 22:09:43
We did need signings but not 10 !
Since Jan our point collecting and goal scoring have not improved ,fact !
Fiquerio, Watson ,one keeper and Lolley would have more than done the job !
The other 6 have just added to the wage bill and blocked our own players progress !

7.) 15 Apr 2018 22:42:26
And say the keeper got injured or Osborn got injured ? It’s not like history affords is the confidence to ride our luck with injuries is it?
AK saw enough to conclude that Worral, Mills, Ward, Cummings,clough, Walker, Traore and Smith weren’t what he wanted. Vaughan, Hobbs and bridcutt injured or suspended. McKay Murphy and vellios - he wasn’t sure, but suspected they weren’t interested. In this case what did you expect him to do?

It’s in his nature to be cautious, that doesn’t mean he got everything right but it does mean he has convictions that he stuck with - which in my eyes is credible.

Those players were a disgrace from December onwards and got warburton the sack - not as some claim, the fans as most of them wanted the chap to succeed. As we are seeing with MW the players, and whether they can be bothered or not, determine how well a manager does

8.) 15 Apr 2018 22:45:46
Oh and PS had we not have made plenty of signings we’d have been subjected to Dowell every game as well. Very grateful of his early goals but should have been dispatched back to Everton in January.

Teenage Footballers are generally 1step forward 2 back ,the form he showed last April at 17 showed me there,s a really good player in there ,he playing in atough league against some very physical men .
People getting on young players backs have never ever done them any favours ,hope no one tells him some of the nasty stuff put on here about him ,it,s encouragement that,s vital for confidendence and a couple goals ,given that his form will return !

The last time NW was linked with us would have been a good move for us and I don,t think anybody can argue we would be in a better place now.
OK not purest football style but a winner ,nearest modern manager to BC .
