Well known source in Scotland saying that a 4th bid in the region of £3m for John McGinn has been accepted by Hibs. Obviously I don't know if it's true but I'm just reporting what I've read.


1.) 31 Aug 2017 14:35:33
Yes I just heard Hibs are expected to announce two midfield signings at 3pm and Forest latest offer (of 3.5m plus add ons) has been accept from a few Scottish sources! Hope it's true. Still want a CB though.

2.) 31 Aug 2017 14:39:48
Hearing same rumours but nothing official.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 14:42:04
I believe there must be a sizeable sell on clause for such a young player.My guess would be around 33%.Therefore Hibs would only sell if they are going to receive at least 2 mill.My guess is 3 mill is enough to tempt Hibs into selling,all will be revealed later!

4.) 31 Aug 2017 15:57:41
Looks like the deal is all but done. We desperately need a CB and GK though, especially if Hobbs is on his way out. Surely there will be more outs too in order to keep the squad trimmed.

5.) 31 Aug 2017 16:03:29
Nothing announced by Hibs and nothing on usual rumour sites. where you guys seeing this?

6.) 31 Aug 2017 17:58:07
Talk of Hibs trying for Henderson at Celtic but no signings made/announced and nothing from Forest either. you guys must have very exclusive sources. .

7.) 31 Aug 2017 19:04:35
The only afternoon announcement from Hibs is A Comedy Night on 7th October? Neil Lennon is providing the laughs!



31 Aug 2017 13:35:22
West Brom preparing a £7m bid for Worrall if Jonny Evans leaves.


1.) 31 Aug 2017 13:58:12
£7 million wouldn't get his boots, captain of England winning team, best centre back at the club by a mile and best defender to come through the academy since Dawson.

2.) 31 Aug 2017 14:12:48
If it's true, we need to slap a £15m price tag on him to deter them.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 14:13:22
Yeah, because that's just what we need; to sell our best defender lol

4.) 31 Aug 2017 14:15:15
Quality centre backs are like rocking horse s**t at the moment so 7M ain't enough and in any case we like him where he is, at Forest

5.) 31 Aug 2017 15:33:32
Our best defender? We haven't got a decent one amongst them all.

6.) 31 Aug 2017 15:35:46
If stones is worth 40m worrell got to be worth 30m.

7.) 31 Aug 2017 15:46:45
Nick26: good point, lol.

8.) 31 Aug 2017 16:12:40
The lad is a future England Captain, Hobbs is decent and would be good along side Joe but not getting a chance. Mills seems to have MW under his spell.

9.) 31 Aug 2017 16:24:29
Until we can keep a clean sheet I can't see how we can give our defence too much credit. Goals against stats are as bad as last season. Two seasons of unfathamably poor defending which the manager took the flak for last season. I doubt if anyone who attends the games and witnesses the inept defending would say otherwise. It's very concerning how easily we are picked apart this will become a problem unless we tighten up. Hopefully by MW will resolve this problem as if sure these defenders aren't as bad as they look.

10.) 31 Aug 2017 17:53:11
*cough* Milwall . Settled defence with protection from DCM will improve things for a start! Players like Hobbs, Mancienne, Worrall, Traore and even Mills. plus Fox are more than capable at this level. Not been given enough protection from midfield and over playing the ball when simple clearance needed. This defence cam be decent and squad size, budgets etc make changes unlikely in this window.

11.) 31 Aug 2017 19:42:06
I agree France there must be other factors at play here



26 Aug 2017 21:11:14
Leeds did their homework for this game. Nullified McKay by putting at least two players on him when he got the ball. Tactically, Leeds were better today but we are a work in progress and I'm quite happy by how things are transforming from last seasons debacle. We look forward to the next game and hope that the players will have taken something out of todays game. Things will get better but it will take time.


1.) 27 Aug 2017 03:15:55
Sorry forest fans. I think Matt mills is utter garbage
Not fit to wear the forest shirt and I don't rate Young goalkeeper smith at all.
Also looked very lightweight up front.

2.) 27 Aug 2017 06:36:19
Mills was appalling today
Smith still young and learning his trade
Strikers just weren't in the game really had very few chances
Midfield average

3.) 27 Aug 2017 07:25:57
Every time we looked dangerous Leeds just went down under minor contact to stop the play and break our momentum, one Leeds player was down for what seemed two minutes, and the way he lay looked concussed when the ref gave a sigal he jumped upand seconds later ran down half the pitch in no time at all.

4.) 27 Aug 2017 09:02:53
That's the Leeds tradition - "The Damned United".



24 Jun 2017 11:13:02
Forest interested in Olympiacos midfielder Andreas Bouchalakis.


1.) 24 Jun 2017 11:22:05
So it's a mix of olypiacos players and key sports management players? some scouting that is.

2.) 24 Jun 2017 12:22:13
Had a look at him on the internet, he is definitely not what we need, imo just another Kasami type player. What we need is someone like Leadbetter, someone who knows the Championship and will boss the Midfield at this level, almost like a Vaughan type player with a bit of a mental/ nasty streak who will go forward and have a go.

3.) 24 Jun 2017 21:46:11
I like the player already, normally people watch Internet footage then sing a players praises, and he does not work out, so looking good already. ;-)



23 Jun 2017 09:16:09
Vellios currently in Greece ahead of a proposed move to Olympiacos.


1.) 23 Jun 2017 10:50:36
That's a real shame for Forest if true.

2.) 23 Jun 2017 11:06:05
he will be missed but could this be a good bit of business as the owener owns both clubs. maybe an over inflation transfer fee?

3.) 23 Jun 2017 11:08:41
Hang on. If Cummings is in to replace Velios, and not Ben or Britt as suspected, I am over the moon. Velios is a hard working if a bit limited striker. And if he leaves he will be remembered for a couple of wonderful strikes last season.

4.) 23 Jun 2017 11:38:02
Am hoping they are signing him for 15 million! Seeing as EM owns both clubs it's an easy way to transfer funds. I thought maybe they'd sign Britt for 20m and loan him straight back indefinitely.

5.) 23 Jun 2017 11:49:02
To me that means Britt will be going nowhere so good but of business if you ask me.

6.) 23 Jun 2017 16:34:40
I think the greek fans would have something to say about their club shelling out 15 mill on Velios lol. How would you feel about us buying Downing for 15 mill?

7.) 23 Jun 2017 17:31:05
Shame if he goes, didn't get anywhere enough game time last season.

8.) 23 Jun 2017 21:56:23
Rumour is we are taking a fellow called Vellios on loan from our Greek parent club at the end of the transfer window?

I'd back him to do a job in the Championship.

9.) 23 Jun 2017 23:25:02
Over pay for V man and no FFP probs for REDS.

Looks like we've signed a gem in Bouchalakis.


1.) 12 Aug 2017 16:59:39
Great win against a good side. however, for Christ sake defend your corners! And Warbs, it's staring you in the face!? SIGN A BLOODY DECENT CB!

2.) 12 Aug 2017 17:03:03
Well played, Smith some great saves!

3.) 12 Aug 2017 17:08:28
3 wins on the bounce

Happy days.

4.) 12 Aug 2017 17:12:52
We have but i do agree with a few on here that we need a centre back. Headers against us again today. Defence needs time but surely Hobbs is better than Mills?

5.) 12 Aug 2017 17:38:25
Get that monster in from Barnsley. Has he gone to Brum?

6.) 12 Aug 2017 17:50:17
Fell for the same short corners twice today.

7.) 12 Aug 2017 18:30:53
That can be worked on at the training ground and it's a problem as a whole defensively, not just one player.

8.) 12 Aug 2017 19:41:12
Agreed the defence is a collective but as a centre back you should never let your man get in front for a free header. Unfortunately Mr Mills makes a habit of it!

9.) 12 Aug 2017 20:25:36
As a senior player he should be leading the way but many times he's out of position and others cover for this and his mistakes.

10.) 12 Aug 2017 20:42:21
I'm happy and you get confidence when you win, It's all a learning curve 3 games 3 different team's he's put out and changed tactics.
It's not just about defending at corners, It's why we concede so many 12 today and some of the reason for poor defending today is down to the wing backs.
Great going forward, but poor at defending.
But like I say it's early days.
They will learn as a team and long term I prefer three at the back. with the squad we have.
So let's give all the players our support including mills and carry on with the winning streak.
As that great Cockney once said "HE WHO DARES WINS"
Sit back have a beer and enjoy the ride. 🍻🍻🍻🍻.



25 Feb 2017 13:07:53
My 11 today would be: Henderson Lichaj Mancienne Worrall Pinillos Ward Vaughan Clough Ariyibi Brereton Assombalonga. Subs Smith Fox Cohen Vellios Cash Teixeira Osborn. That was quite difficult to pick. Not sure on the fitness of Hobbs or Pereira.


1.) 25 Feb 2017 13:13:56
I thought Henderson was out for the rest of the season.

2.) 25 Feb 2017 13:36:58
That midfield would get completely overrun.

3.) 25 Feb 2017 13:37:12
Apologies. Of course he is. Smith to start with Stojkovic on bench. My phone has the team on predictive text. Thanks Dr N.

4.) 25 Feb 2017 13:41:17
And I've forgotten McCormack! Told you it was hard to choose.

5.) 25 Feb 2017 13:57:04
Pieira? Not a chance send him back as well as dumi and kasami followed by the termination of contracts for Lica, bendtner, Traore and perquis.

6.) 25 Feb 2017 14:33:58
I didn't put Pereira in the squad.

7.) 25 Feb 2017 14:55:24
Sorry MJ quite right.



31 Jan 2017 19:02:08
Reports suggest that Luke Chambers is staying at Ipswich Town.




31 Jan 2017 18:21:38
Jorge Grant rumoured to be joining Notts County on loan.


1.) 31 Jan 2017 19:22:10
Jorge need regular football so good move.



20 Jan 2017 20:10:42
My 11 for tomorrow: Henderson Lichaj Hobbs Mancienne Pinillos Pereira Cash Osborn Ward Assombalonga Vellios. Subs: Stojkovic Mills Vaughan Lam Edser Brereton Bendtner. Straight 4 4 2. Ward and Pereira out and out wingers.


1.) 21 Jan 2017 01:00:27
That teams a play off side without a doubt ! Cour

I have read the same article. £10m nowhere near enough. We need to hold on to Britt or price him out of the market. 15-20m nearer the Mark. Let's stop giving our players away just for a change. Hope this won't turn Britts head though.

Tell that to Vardy who plied his trade in non league. As did Pearce, Jemson and Birtles. Gems can be unearthed at any level.

Nick26. I'm not a doom monger at all. Sly reported earlier that Villa have had no contact from Forest regarding McCormack. I'm just passing on the info that's all. I thought that's what this rumours site was for. I've seen all the reports linking him to Forest too but no contact made. I was hoping too that we would try and sign him but doubted that we would even try under the circumstances.

Villa to pay a percentage of his wages.

I have read that Luton have accepted a bid of £1.75m plus add ons for him. However, Nathan Jones said that he is not for sale when we approached them. It is on a Birmingham City fans forum so could just be a rumour.
