Could be a couple out loans today and possibly not going far!


1.) 31 May 2018 12:58:56
Is our owner so skint he needs not one but two loans. 😁 😁



27 May 2018 22:28:15
We spent 2m on a striker last year and what did that show?


1.) 28 May 2018 04:51:56
2 million on a striker gets you exactly what we got.Unless you gamble on lower league players you need to spend bigger than that.We paid 2 mil for Stan Collymore 25 yrs ago.

2.) 28 May 2018 15:53:35
It was actually 2.5million but your point is spot on. What decade are we leaving in? You get naff all with 2 million and you will get nowhere with a team full of learners. The 5.5 million gamble on assombalonga commercially, was relatively the same as the gamble in Stan. Both paid off but it’s a gamble no doubt. If anything we undersold Stan. We got a ridulous return on assombalonga

3.) 28 May 2018 16:27:52
Couldn't agree more 2 star.

4.) 29 May 2018 09:42:22
Is everyone mad? If Osborn was at another club and we wanted to buy him how much do you think he would cost us? Given that he is young, has plenty of championship games under his belt and is his clubs player of the year. Answer is alot!!. When the lb gets injured who do we turn to? Left mid, centre mid, just off the striker. He plays anywhere and does a good job. Mental to sell him unless its silly money.

5.) 29 May 2018 15:17:50
My sentiments exactly.

6.) 29 May 2018 21:27:31
Problem is Redfin if the powers that be decide there's no money and say sell before you buy we could get rid of 10 deadwood players and not even raise a couple of million.
I wouldn't get rid if we don't need to but something drastic has to happen this summer because this squad is garbage,relegation fodder in fact. Expect big changes



12 Feb 2018 14:11:35
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.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Mr Murdoch who dictates so much in English football as decided we should have 12 in a team no goalkeepers and play Saturday nights ,this he,s says will produce more goals and excitement ,we will dispense with numbers to confuse players and fans alike ,he says F--- tradition ,money rules


1.) 17 Jul 2018 18:03:58
Where have you read this carlo?



16 Jul 2018 18:21:28
Wonder when the sqaud numbers will be allocated,a few empty numbers to fill 2 8, 4 6 and 10 maybe ,hope AK likes tradition and put players into accepted shirts for their position.


1.) 16 Jul 2018 18:38:39
Carlo. I do not care what numbers players are given, it is how well they play and how successful the team is that counts. Tradition in all aspects of football is fading rapidly, success and failure will always remain the constant, success is all that matters and that is striven for.

2.) 16 Jul 2018 19:14:26
France would argue with that ,they seemed to be using traditional position numbers ,where did they finish?

3.) 16 Jul 2018 19:19:59
Jfj what does that stand for joy Full John 😁 think carlo was just putting a question out there and as far as I know maybe you don't care about the numbers but a lot of players do in every team out there think the number 2 shirt is soudani carlo I might be wrong I'm sure someone will put me right if not

4.) 16 Jul 2018 19:30:03
Carlo, so you are saying tradition including what numbers players have turns bums into World Beaters. Great skill, and good management are what got them in that position.

5.) 16 Jul 2018 19:48:14
Karanka has voiced his respect for our tradition and emphasised it's importance. Maybe he's one of a dying breed JFJ?

6.) 16 Jul 2018 19:50:45
I really do not think that Carlo is intimating any thing of the kind.
His point , I think , is that for many people , myself included, a right back wore 2 a left back 3, a centre half 5 etc etc and that again , for some supporters it is a tradition that we remember.

7.) 16 Jul 2018 20:02:17
I'm ok with numbers as long as vellios gets the 99 shirt,Just to show were he is in the pecking order. 😁😁😁

8.) 16 Jul 2018 20:21:59
Creepy 1. My original point was not that Carlo's point of wanting players in traditional numbers for their position is not what we remember, or in any way having a go at him, just my stating how I feel. Carlo did state France used traditional numbers, where did they finish. That suggests to me he thinks traditional numbers make a difference between winning and losing, if i'm wrong then fair do's.

9.) 16 Jul 2018 20:28:59
The main thing here is that Carlo you and I will all be right behind the team no matter what numbers they wear :)


10.) 16 Jul 2018 20:30:12
Ff, does he get a flake with that. 😁

11.) 16 Jul 2018 20:37:15
Please don't be saying things like that about velios f79 you will be upsetting redinixile and a few others on here with him being a top striker and not being given the chance to prove himself πŸ˜‚πŸ˜

12.) 16 Jul 2018 20:43:15
Is anybody going to be 69 ?

13.) 16 Jul 2018 20:45:09
JFJ Carlo was just saying that's all and I think most prefer traditional numbers.
Don't start going on about points,last time someone tried making a point it proved a bit pointless and while trying to point it out the point was lost, so if you want to make a point can you make point without pointing the finger.😁😁

14.) 16 Jul 2018 20:50:14
Probably Osborn Carlo he handle most positions.🀣🀣🀣

15.) 16 Jul 2018 20:52:04
Skeggs more like judge f-----g Julie.🀣🀣🀣

16.) 16 Jul 2018 20:55:08
Carlo doesn’t care so long as Ben Brereton is number 9! Or perhaps he would make a good 69?

17.) 16 Jul 2018 20:57:56
2 star what is your point??😁😁😁

18.) 16 Jul 2018 21:10:35
Ff, you make a good point, well pointed out, you are pointing in the right direction, what was your point again, oh yes I just remembered your point, thanks for pointing that out to me. 😁

19.) 16 Jul 2018 22:45:59
FF , I will leave it to your wicked mind to determine ! You have enough devilment of your own, you don’t need any of mine !

20.) 16 Jul 2018 22:56:20

21.) 16 Jul 2018 23:08:37
I would just point out that Vellios does not need a squad number as you may have missed the point that he will be moving on so there is no point in debating this further and no point in anyone getting upset about squad numbers as its the 11 on the park at anyone time playing for points that is the point of the League? Not sure what the point of the thread was in the first place as there is no point to the numbers players wear?

So hopefully this clears up the point you were all trying to make?

The only point that matters are the points on the board come August through to May and as these will be more points than last season there is no point in Foremoaners moaning or trying to score points by trying to wind the forum up?

Hopefully I have made my point and you all agree that there is no point in debating his matter or any point further?

Onward and upward as AK points us in the right direction.

As old Brucey would say Points means Prizes! COYR's

Foremoaning is pointless so what's the point?

I'm glad you've cleared that up red I was getting a bit worried in case you asked for him to play for us again this season 😁

25.) 17 Jul 2018 08:51:04
I concur skeggs 😁😁😁

26.) 17 Jul 2018 09:43:10

Would Colback be better than Bridcutt ?


1.) 14 Jul 2018 15:49:06
Yes I would say so

2.) 14 Jul 2018 16:46:35
No way.

3.) 14 Jul 2018 17:04:04
Bridcutt grew better toward season end. Very tudy player i thought



07 Jul 2018 20:04:52
The 1966 win gave a tremendous boost to domestic football .The following season we were runners up in the league and cup semi finalists from no where playing possibly the best football of any Forest team .
Let's hope history can be repeated !

Good job spec savers weren't around?

Yes Carlo Johnny Carey's team of 66/67 was wonderful to watch! We d have won the double that year if Brian Labone hadn't nobbled Joe Baker in the FA cup 6th round.I often used to chat to Bob Mckinlay about it when I was at the old Guildhall Court. Talking of which do you remember seeing Frank Wignall running the old Forest Service Station on Tollhouse Hill and John Winfield at his newsagents shop in the Victoria Centre? My God they'd be multi millionaires now ,playing in this era!

Post this for posterity Ff799 has just endorsed Karanka to succeed!

He be nominated for a role in "I Believe In Miracles" next!



07 Jul 2018 09:54:58
The sqaud seems to be in place ,the fans are onside ,now the most important thing will be the manager,picking the right team ,getting the tactics correct ,the team formation ,knowing how, to handle personalities ,some of them complex ,lifting them if things slide which they inevitabley will at some point in the season ,if AK is the man this should be our season!


1.) 07 Jul 2018 11:05:21
Totally agree carlo. The most important one for me is the man management issue. That will be a true test of Karankas credentials.Sgetty.πŸ˜€

AK is not after another striker because unlike many on here he knows how good BB is going to be ,why are so many keen for him to go I just don,t know ,for a 19 year old he,s a real handful and will suprise many this season ,he had his confidence badly knocked by MB but will regain it and shut his critics up ,get off the lads back !
