Programme sales will be up on Saturday because if your like me you will need one to identify all the players!

Save your money Chugsy and use the sky sports app 👍

Have you not heard, we have taken pity on the women that paraded the Darts players to the hockey, they will be parading all our new players with a board stating their names before each game starts for the rest of the season. You can sponsor the girls aswell as the players now. 😁 😁 😁 😁 😁 😁 😁.

if Hein**kin created the ideal football fans scenario then that would be it

5.) 10 Feb 2018 09:56:27
It's official Forest now have more talent on their books than Hooters!

What can possibly go wrong?



31 Jan 2018 23:58:59
Both Watson and Guadeora have had contracts ended so both can sign tomorrow.


1.) 01 Feb 2018 00:18:54
Geddy already signed.



24 Dec 2017 17:10:24
I think the game v Sheffield Wed would suit McKay's attacking one touch style perfectly
especially with Hunt missing.
Its the game to bring him back in to the side.


1.) 24 Dec 2017 19:13:25
Don't worry about McKay he's class.
He's just adapting to the physical challenge of the championship and fitness levels required as is Cummings.
He's top of the assist league in the championship as well as scoring a few,amazing stats really when he's hardly finished a single game.
The kid is a good player just needs to improve his fitness levels.



08 Oct 2017 11:44:45
After reading on here the comparison of styles between England and Forest who else believes that Football Coaches are ruining the game and taking away our national style, in particular the British type of play.
When play our 442 style properly at pace its hard to beat.
What do people think?


1.) 08 Oct 2017 20:33:48
Only thing you can say is that since 1966 we've won nothing playing mainly 442. Don't think the game has been ruined,you have to adapt to rule changes as well.
If you go back we had one sub,you could pass the ball back to goalkeeper and up,
You could tackle from behind.
Offside was easy to execute.
Game has changed a lot.

2.) 09 Oct 2017 07:21:23
Not ruined but we shouldn't try and replicate continental football, we just don't have the players to pull it off. Crouch up front, long ball, that's what I say.

3.) 09 Oct 2017 18:00:48
Football is an ever evolving sport both in rulesets and tactics. Gone are the days of long balls and lumping as players can generally read those balls and defend against them easily. Nowadays you switch the ball quickly or you play patiently and try to drag the opposition out of position.

The current meta Tactic is 343, which players are now playing at club level, so it makes sense to mirror that in the international scene too. Before that it was 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3. The pace and and style of the games have been influenced by the M word, where the more attractive footballing teams and technical players are dragging the game to being less of the typical English game and more towards the South American and Spanish style of play. Personally I think the old style of play with more direct passing and getting the ball out wide to a winger or up to an ogre in attack, can still work at club level when you can coach the players day in and day out, but international football needs the players to be comfortable with what they know and how they play.

4.) 09 Oct 2017 22:05:54
Wales 0 v Ireland 1 Winning at its best by the Sourcer's Apprentice and his Rotweiller!

Football has not changed its just about getting the best out of your resources and playing winning football?

5.) 10 Oct 2017 20:46:16
I saw the comparison between Wales and Forest for the goal last night. Taking unnecessary risks at the back.



30 Aug 2017 08:29:23
It's being reported on various that Leicester are after Benny Osbourne for 10m.
Makes sense because they never replaced Kante and BO is the only player around with that sort of engine.


{Ed001's Note - Ndidi replaced Kante.}

1.) 30 Aug 2017 09:23:05
exactly my point

2.) 30 Aug 2017 09:32:01
10m sell sell sell.
Buy macdonald and mcginn and centre half.

3.) 30 Aug 2017 09:42:24
10m for Osbourn, football really has gone mad but at least we're benefitting from it for a change. 15m for Britt, possible 10m for Osbourne, 14m for Burke, 7m for Antonio and 3m for Lansbury. I make that 49m in transfers out over the last year. Compare that to who has come in, where is all the money going?

4.) 30 Aug 2017 10:00:48
10 million? Take it,hes not that good,thats good money when you consider we got McKay for 1/2 million.

5.) 30 Aug 2017 10:22:30
123. Mcdonald = £7m, McGinn = £5m if you believe Lennon in one report. Centre Half = £????????? The first two amount to more than £10m alone. The club needs to keep some money to keep running.

6.) 30 Aug 2017 10:31:45
GR. If the club spent every penny from players on players how is it expected cut the debts it has, merchandise and everything else does not raise enough to cut the clubs debts.

7.) 30 Aug 2017 10:50:11
ABF - I never said anything about spending every penny and I know the club is not self-sustainable without selling assets, however, the club now makes a reported loss of approx 750k per month so there is definitely some money left over from all the transfers we've shipped out.

8.) 30 Aug 2017 10:54:53
I would imagine the deal will go through if Drinkwater moves to Chelsea. I like Osborn, but I do think we should take the deal and try and get a new CB with this money. Kevin Long from Burnley would be the best bet for me

9.) 30 Aug 2017 11:21:19
McDonald won't come,we would not be prepared to pay his wages.
That's why Hobbs and Eric will be off,we're not prepared to pay big wages.

10.) 30 Aug 2017 12:38:14
I posted at the weekend that I watched Mcdonald at Ipswich. He is just the player we need. Sits infront of the defence. Drops into a back 3 when the full backs push up. Intelligent enough to know when to hold and when to play out. As big as a cb so solid in the air. Just his wages as some have said.

11.) 30 Aug 2017 13:10:35
Benny is a good player with a big engine that will keep going for 90 minutes. £10 million is a good price if he can be replaced. Mcginn for £3 to £4 million would be good but only if he is a natural replacement.

12.) 30 Aug 2017 13:13:33
FF79 Eric is NOT on a king's random unlike Hobbs who is one of the top earners!

13.) 30 Aug 2017 13:33:16
Player of the season last year so probably feels he deserves a bettér deal.
I'm convinced he'll be gone if not in this window then the next.

Am I alone in thinking that our interest in bringing Dawson back to the club is a big mistake.


1.) 15 Mar 2018 09:58:12
Things change with time. We now seem to have three good central defenders in Figuerido, Worrall and Fox, but consider this: we could sell Worrall and Mancienne and have Dawson as back up or part of rotation, and Coveney will soon be ready from the U23s. We know that Cohen and Vaughan are going, and if Traore goes too that would free up space and wages, and we might be able to buy in more good players. AK should not be afraid to sell, and is looking for a squad of 21-22. In my mind anything is possible, and I'd trust him to get it right. Maybe we should buy Pants, Figuerido and Tomlin as a starting point, but let's face it we haven't had a manager who has spotted who and what we need until AK came along. The crucial player it seems is Colback - I reckon we could afford to buy, but getting round the wages issue seems to be THE issue.

2.) 15 Mar 2018 10:35:10
Whilst I agree that Colback has done ok I don't think he's worth upsetting our wage structure for. We needed to steady the ship and a midfield of Colback and Watson have done that But if we want to progress next season we'll need a more creative midfield. Watson is a given to start most games so I think a more creative or box to box midfielder might be needed. Tomlin, Fig and probably Pants I would try and sign.

3.) 15 Mar 2018 10:50:07
I like the idea of Dawson but also imagine his wages wouldn’t be small and he is getting on now. I think AK May have another look at a few players before end of season as we have nothing really to play for now and then sit down with all players in summer to decide several futures, if players like Worrall or Manchienne or Lichij want to move on I can see him cashing in and looking at new faces but if they don’t and he feels they have done ok now squad confidence is better then he might not invest much in the defence. Whatever happens I think AK knows what he is doing especially when it comes to defending!

4.) 15 Mar 2018 11:52:37
Here's the list he'll try and move on in the summer.
Cohen retired
All these will be given the chance to leave 23 players plus colback and Dowell going back to their clubs.
So there will be a lot of signings all over the park.
He's made it clear who he rates and it's non of those above,be interesting to see how many he can shift,that will decide who comes in and how many.

5.) 15 Mar 2018 14:13:50
I am of an age where the maxim " never go back " is often used rightly or wrongly
Things are very rarely the same and usually have a tendency not to work out.

6.) 16 Mar 2018 15:08:34
Geddy is not exactly setting the pitch on fire.



24 Feb 2018 18:54:26
Our Chairman put in an appearance today at Loftus Road to see the boys win 5-2.


1.) 24 Feb 2018 19:10:33
Hopefully he was impressed enough to get his cheque book out, and signs up these loan players permanently.

2.) 24 Feb 2018 20:52:59
He’s probably eyeing up the ☝️For the Olympiakos future managers job 😀

3.) 24 Feb 2018 21:11:05
Well I bet he’s not offered to share his tea with him!

4.) 25 Feb 2018 08:59:04
The chairman is always at games. The owner, on the other hand, is not always there. But he was today.



17 Feb 2018 14:08:45
Darikwa and Fox, strewth Cloughie must be laughing.


1.) 17 Feb 2018 14:26:08
No defenders on the bench either. Must be going for all out attack?

No chance of a clean sheet today so balls over the top to Brereton

I'm going for a 4-2 Forest win

2.) 17 Feb 2018 14:35:08
To be fair, fox has always done well when coming in at CB and has played his best football there.

3.) 17 Feb 2018 14:42:36
How in gods name does Darwika get a game we are in for a long afternoon 😕⚓

4.) 17 Feb 2018 14:54:30
Darikwa can’t defend!!! Fox is a liability,this won’t end well☹️

5.) 17 Feb 2018 15:24:28
"You got to Have Faith!!" 🎸🎸🎸



31 Jan 2018 23:56:10
I wish I'd bought a Fulham ticket now.


1.) 01 Feb 2018 00:48:32
It will be some management to get a result, with so many new players. He's spotted the weak links, identified replacements with the club and got most of them over the line at minimal cost. We now all pray for AK to get them winning and quckly.👏👍



30 Jan 2018 22:59:32
How can a team go to Leeds and get a result, go to wolves and win and then play two games so badly that It made me leave early at the Hull game and the Preston game because I couldn't stand the rubbish.
Is this player power going on?
Has Karanka lost the dressing room already?
Something is very wrong here.


1.) 31 Jan 2018 00:26:54
Have a few players spat their dummies out because they know they've been found out by AK? I hope he's ruthless with the dismantling of this squad of players. I now know why I never have players names on the back of my Forest shirts. I support Forest and only players who give their all for our club, we have too few.

Darikwa is a joke, he can't defend, can't tackle, to small to head it and can't compete. He was signed as a wing back and he can't attack either. It might give us an edge though because Burton won't know which fullback to attack and expose, Darikwa or Fox. Confusion reigns
