It would appear that Ansarifard is moving on to pastures new in Qatar following on from the departues of Soudani and Vellios and Murphy being told he can leave.

One has to assume that at least one if not two strikers must be on the radar because if not we are very light up front but that said I think the recruitment thus far has been if not spectacular then at least solid, in particular for me, Adomah so let's wait and see who comes in.

1.) 11 Jul 2019 23:24:46
The 26 man squad going to Greece doesn't look that good on paper to me.
Think it will struggle in the championship unless some of the kids are better than I've seen from them so far.
Need to sign at least a couple of strikers can't rely just on grabban to stay fit all season.
Not being negative just can't see any strength in debth just numbers.
Hope I'm wrong but it's not got a wow factor about it.

2.) 12 Jul 2019 07:13:26
Unless he likes the look of walker and appiah.

3.) 12 Jul 2019 07:15:44
Have to agree Fff79. there's still a big job to do to bring in more quality. And for that to happen, money is going to have to be spent. There just isn't a depth of quality in the squad yet, and with a few injuries, it will start to tell.

4.) 12 Jul 2019 07:53:24
That's the spirit 79 🤣.

5.) 12 Jul 2019 08:10:15
Personally I have yet to be wowed by any acquisition so far.

6.) 12 Jul 2019 08:15:30
I was thinking the same. Definitely need someone to put Grabban under pressure for his place and back up in place for when he trips over his beard and injures himself!

7.) 12 Jul 2019 09:47:18
Official site says he has left, at least Sabri is not taking a age to make his mind up on who he likes, and does not like.

8.) 12 Jul 2019 09:49:25
Got nothing to do with spirit reddog, it's just my opinion on the squad, if your happy and think that's a promotion squad then good for you mate.

9.) 12 Jul 2019 16:16:19
We should welcome Assomb. back with open arms. and right back is equal p.



14 Jan 2019 11:43:51
Martin O'neill confirmed

1.) 14 Jan 2019 12:16:37
Not for me. Been out in the Republic of Ireland wilderness for too long and out of touch with the modern game. Might steady the ship but that’s about all. Wrong appointment, we ain’t going nowhere under O’Niell’s leadership. The merry-go-round continues.

2.) 14 Jan 2019 12:27:16
Tap nice to see your giving him a chance

3.) 14 Jan 2019 12:58:04
No matter who comes in to manage the club there will always be unhappy fans.
Hope he O'Neil does well.

4.) 14 Jan 2019 12:59:18
I think just a steady ship now until the end of the season. Build a team that wants to play for the shirt, team spirit, courage and wanting to win. Get rid of the dead wood and recruit some quality as well as getting more academy players game time (and Worrall back) I don't think promotion is an option this season but i'm happy with that. Next season we'll smash it. COYR

5.) 14 Jan 2019 12:59:39
For me O'Neil is perfect,forest about time!!!!!

6.) 14 Jan 2019 13:14:58
It’s not that I’m not giving O’Neil a chance Stevie, just don’t think he’s the right manager to take us forward. 10 years ago, yes, I really hope he proves me wrong and shuts my trap.

7.) 14 Jan 2019 13:10:08
Give the guy a chance before writing him off. Who realistically did you think we could get?

8.) 14 Jan 2019 14:30:51
Martins experience is second to none. He has managed and had success at almost every level from Non-League, Lower League, Championship, Promotion, Top half of Premier League Scottish Premier League finishes European Football and International Football. Warnock has shown that age and methods learned in the 1980's is not a barrier to success. The club is in good hands with O'Neill just need luck to be with us (as do all successful clubs) and we could yet rescue this season that was careering downhill fast under AK. Get behind him and stop the negativity.

9.) 14 Jan 2019 14:33:11
I'd take O'Neil and Keane. I'm sure he will get us playing attractive football.
Some have said he's more route one. But he will be managing players who are more suited to playing it on deck.
Hope he's backed so he can add the finishing touches to squad.
Centre half
A strong fast direct winger

10.) 14 Jan 2019 16:07:02
A lot of fans were unhappy when Karanka came in. MON has a great record at club level and been told he jumped ahead of other candidates due to his huge passion for the club and desire to see the club get promotion. We certainly should give him a chance and respect for his record and his amazing history with our club, let’s hope it works out.

11.) 14 Jan 2019 18:33:43
a year ago we would have been really happy in getting MON in as out manager. it didn't end well at ROI but was never going to in the long run. He has a good club record and he loves our club so I'm happy it's him and want us to have some consistency that we have been missing. if Keane comes to then another person who cares for the club and although he can be an idiot at times maybe he is the one to pull people in line. Come on you reds.



05 Jan 2019 21:50:02
One of those days today when the relative league positions of both clubs were clear for all to see.

Nobody disgraced themselves or had an appalling game but for the most part we were left chasing shadows all over the pitch and but for some pretty miserable finishing from Morata (60 million!) the score would have been at least four if not more.

Steele certainly distinguished himself and appeared less flustered than Pantilimon can get and his distribution was much better.for sure.

I have to admit that it was at times a pleasure to watch the way that Chelsea passed and probed away and I hope that some day soon I can see us playing in a similar way .

For me personally a good day out with some excellent skill on show and a battling effort laden display from us.

Beaten but unbowed and as always . . .


1.) 05 Jan 2019 22:12:00
Well said creepy happy New year to you, always get an unbiased analysis from you, keep em coming and no more stropp from you 🍻🍻

A really well fought and well deserved three points today against a side who played some really attractive passing football but made two disastrous errors with the straight red ( no doubts for me ) and the crazy back pass for Colbacks well taken first goal .

Leeds looked well capable of coming back into it until the red card and at half time all looked pretty good .

Defensive frailties again pretty much gifted them a couple of goals but we continued to press and push and after Colbacks second I personally thought we would go on to win.

Mention for Murphy who ran his guts out today in a manner I didn't think he was capable of and an outrageous 4th from Osborn was the cherry on top.

Would things have been different if the red card wasnt shown ?. Almost certainly they would but it was and that's the way that the game is played.

I thought we looked better moving Yacob across and leaving Robinson in position and for a change all 3 substitutions made sense to me.

All in all a good day today and talk of managers' windows, comings and goings can wait for a day whilst I bathe in the afterglow of turning over the dirties.

As always . . .


1.) 01 Jan 2019 22:40:38
Agree creepy.pants is the problem though, fox had a go at him more than once,must be difficult as a defender with the Romanian clown behind you.
Goalkeeper is s must for me if we ate to progress.



06 Mar 2018 18:19:45
Be quite happy with a point tonight ( long drive back if we get hammered ).
Norwich are no mugs and Carrow Road as others have said is not exactly our " Shangri La ".

Hopefully we will start with the same side as last week or very close to it at least. as we are looking a bit more solid at the back.
In fact sat in the trent end last week v Brum I felt I was sat behind a much more solid defensive line with Pantillimon and the two centre backs. I have to say the passing beteween Smith amd Worral has had my heart in my mouth more than once.

Thats not to say we are the finished article at the back, in particular the left back position, but definately imo tighter.

Hope to see either Brereton or Vellios ( unlikely I know but I am still not yet convinced he has had a fair crack of the whip. thumbs down aplenty no doubt :) ).

Thought the introduction of Murphy on Saturday offered us nothing but he may yet not be fully fit.

Either way its . .


1.) 06 Mar 2018 19:48:05
with you on this Creepy
good to see Pontilimon shouting to the back line rather than just fetching the ball and getting on with the game, we need a keeper who communicates with the defence.
I am a fan of Vellios and think he will do a better job than the other two at the moment, BB getting better but still miles away and Murphey not fit or getting any younget but proven.
enjoy the evening mate and bring us back 3 points

2.) 06 Mar 2018 21:45:56
Brereton too busy diving and looking for free kicks n penalties to play football. Missed the target on several occasions. Send him to Notts. With Murphy playing the way he did on Saturday we have no option but to play Velios. The best we have by a mile.

Nottingham Forest v Swansea City Review

1.) 15 Sep 2019 10:42:49
Credit to Norwich as well, the scenes in the final 5 mins were great to see. the young kids nearly in tears willing the minutes way.
PS Pepe, you can have Muric back?

2.) 15 Sep 2019 11:03:04
As usual a calm and measured post Creepy.
Rogie can Muric be allowed to return before next summer, he was supposed to be a step up from Pants but is no better than Smith at the moment. I'm sure many of us would chip in for a flight back to Manchester for him.

3.) 15 Sep 2019 12:13:53
As long as it isn't British Airways mate?!

4.) 15 Sep 2019 22:18:08
I thought Smith was better than muric let's face it he made some important saves for us and kept us up in the championship but loyalty where does that get you, but I would say samba is prob best keeper weve9had in a long time and looks like lamouchi might be best manager we've had in a long time onwards and upwards we will only get better exciting times I hope.



31 Aug 2019 20:18:57
Coming on the heels of two excellent home performances today was possibly a bit of a reality check as to what life in this league is more likely to be about from a Preston side who came with a clear game plan and certainly for the first half basically smothered us and gave no opportunity for the quick movement and crisp passing we have seen before.

In all honesty we did not exactly help our own cause with at times some very sloppy play, wayward passing and wrong decsions being made by players in possession.

Jenkinson and Robinson had a pretty torrid time of it with Ameobi and Lolley being called upon to do a lot of tracking back to help out leaving us at times with no real outball at all.

Silva and Semedo in particular also struggled throughout the first half wuth Preston offering little time on the ball and for me it was only Watson who seemed to be shoring things up in that first half.

Dawson and Worrall, whilst doing nothing wrong, did not look as dominating as they have been previously in a pretty lacklustre first half which saw us go in only one down perhaps courtesy of good work by Samba who seems to be rapidly cementing his place as first choice.

The introduction of Sow for Semedo once again bolstered things up in the midfield and whilst we rarely looked threatening Grabban became more involved out wide looking for the ball which is perhaps not ideal for a lone striker but the effort was to me apparent and a difference to the first half.

A game that was looking like drifting to a defeat was changed by the introduction of Adomah who seized on our only real opportunity in the game to snatch the equaliser following decent work from Carvalho and it was from Adomah that any thing half decent we did for the remainder of the game came from.

I don't think that Preston are the only team we will see at the City ground this season adopting the same tactic and in truth we will have to find a way of overcoming this kind of spoiling attitude which whilst perfectly legitamate makes for pretty tough watching .

For me both Sow and Adomah would be regular starters as whenever they come on they inevitably make a difference and things happen but as is often said there are 46 games to be played in a season and roation may be key.

So August comes to a close with us 10th on 9 pts and for me a decent start to a season that as usual for us had a pretty traumatic start to it.
Mr Lamouchi has made his choices and cast the remaing players into the wilderness and does for the most part seem to have a system and a plan to work to which is in itself a pretty solid platform.

Next stop is Welsh Wales against Swansea who are flying right now and will be another stern test so see you there and

As always


1.) 31 Aug 2019 20:33:50
Think every game will be a test this season that's why last season was a waste would of been our best chance last season of getting up but realistically creepy next season with the same manager and team we can only get better.

2.) 31 Aug 2019 20:38:07
Creepy we delt Fulham the same deal last week and we don't complain, what the difference is we don't like it when sides do it to us on our own patch?
Didn't like the antics of their no 4 but thought they thoroughly deserved their half time lead and as you know when you go a goal up away you try to hold onto it
Its early days but so far we are a side that is suited to counter attack and when you play the likes of Preston it's about taking the game to them at home?
We couldn't do that today but did a better job second half with sow dictating play, a point gained for me and a strong learning curve for Lamouchi in seeing what teams will do on our patch.
Lamouchi has done well so far and exceeded my expectations from the opening fixtures, so well done to him and got two weeks to work more of his magic on the players, as you can see they are buying into his ways.

3.) 31 Aug 2019 21:37:51
Quite agree with all that ff.
Most certainly a case of the boot being on the other foot today compared to Fulham.
We do look harder to beat at the moment but this may seem a little odd considering we put 6 in over two games I still think we are lightweight up front insofar as Grabban is to me simply not a lone striker and thrives on what others can supply.

Its far from a stellar start but bearing in mind who we have played its been a decent enough one.

4.) 31 Aug 2019 21:38:50
Three very good posts boys. 💪.

5.) 31 Aug 2019 21:47:38
Will be there creepy always a good day out to Swansea albeit a long one.
Last season we played em off the park and got a point this season I expect us to defend and hit them on the break?
Quietly confident we will get a result there .

6.) 31 Aug 2019 22:19:27
Creepy I agree mate but the sides we got results against play football and suits our play of soaking it up and then hitting them fast and hard, Preston just played and controlled the first half and both semedo and Silva were easily bypassed, we have to play a different game against some sides because they enjoy coming here to a big crowd and showing their metal.
Like I've said Lamouchi has impressed me so far and with carvalho now fit he has a new dimension attack wise.
Lamouchi has said we are looking at the free agent market at the moment which doesn't suprise me.
We are no different from most sides in playing one up top and I thought grabbon did a great job today with very poor service, mir doesn't do it for me as Walker is better and scored two today,
When we talk about grabban not being a lone striker I think we are saying he struggles to hold the ball up?
That being the case the problem is easily remedied by not play long high balls to him, its not his game and it's not most goalscoring forwards game.
The goals he scored against Fulham showed his game, neat one touch football and a brain to make the run and finish it.
Two up won't help the team but think about it it's actually three up at times when lolley and uncle Albert join in?

Sir Brian used to say "a trophy is a trophy". His first, with us, was the Anglo Scottish Cup I believe. If the League Cup, Carabo, Milk, Littlewoods have you entry into the so called Champions League that would change perception! One if the best games I've ever seen was the Simod Cup Final against Everton,which we won 4-3.

4.) 28 Aug 2019 19:05:07

After that pack of lies he made up about Sir Brian!



24 Aug 2019 22:16:54
Forest were for the most part pressing high up the pitch in a way that was sadly lacking at Charlton and battled and chased for every ball against a Fulham side that were themselves looking lively and quite likely to catch us on the break but to a man we stood firm with once again Dawson and Worrall to the fore making interceptions and blocks as well as winning most everything in the air pretty well nullifying the undoubted threat of Mitrovic.

Lolley and Ameobi in particular were constantly tracking back to help out Jenkinson and Robinson and quite honestly I felt confident that we would hold onto the lead even though for the last 20 minutes of the half Fulham had almost exclusive posession of the ball.

The second half started wtih a goal for Fulham being disallowed for a foul on Samba and as withe the first half continued with Fulham having nearly all of the ball but running into brick walls time and again with the defence looking very well drilled indeed and the introduction of Semedo proving a stumbling block for Fulham.

A defensive error was pounced on by Grabban who took a touch before rifling home his second of the day which was in fairness totally against the run of play but I felt that Fulham were becoming a little frustrated by a well set up Forest side.

A scrappy goal from Mitrovic was to provide a nervous few minutes and the 8 minutes of injury time seemed a mystery to me quite frankly but no real clear cut chances fell Fulhams way and in fact the best chance fell to us a couple of minutes from time.

All in all a truly outstanding performance from all of the players on the pitch who were rightly applauded long and hard for their efforts against a much fancied very decent side.

Surely the players have to take heart from a game like this as the season moves forward and it may be that Mr Lamouchi has a little more nouse than I pewrhaps credited him with.

Either way a glorious day with a stunning result and an outstanding team performance is to be enjoyed and reflected upon before batlle is joined again on Tuesday so

As always


1.) 25 Aug 2019 10:04:57
I was working creepy so had one eye on my tablet. GRABBAN doing what and where he does it best. The high pressing which i'm sure we all called out for did the trick then? Out of all our cb's who would have thought worrall and dawson woukd be the mainstay? Jenkinson seems to have brought balance to the side, how did he perform?
Seems like Lamouchi has galvanised this huge squad, he got a reaction against charlton and has just beaten High flying fulham in their own back yard. One can only admire this ķind of fete and optimism is growing week on week.
Well done lads!

2.) 25 Aug 2019 11:22:45
Agree 100% rutland. I have stated my opinion on Worrall several times re my perception of his lack of pace and inability to turn quickly but the way he plays with Dawson and the midfield at thge moment doesn't leave him so isolated and open to those perceived faults.
As redinexile says often I am eating humble pie right now and promise not to carp on if and when he makes a mistake.

The two chances that fell to Grabban are EXACTLY what he thrives on and he will more often than not take them and we do right now look a happy ship which as we all know has not always been the case.

We are perhaps one of about 10 or so teams with a real chance this year and for my money the arrival of another proven striker would be a massive massive bonus for us.

Roll on Tuesday which is something you would not expect to hear from me about an EFL game having dismissed it so often in the past but obviously .
