Jackson Irvine going to Brighton. Our new midfielder will be confirmed as Gary Gardener within the next 24 hrs.


1.) 27 Jul 2017 13:34:27
Good. Irvine will be a poor signing for Brighton mark my words, he works hard but technically he isn't very good and would not fit in to our ethos. I know Gardners last loan spell wasn't great but he has proved he can be a big asset for Forest and MW will get him up to his best I'm sure.

2.) 27 Jul 2017 15:11:02
Perhaps not! On the Forest Club site it's announcing that Andreas Bouchalakis has signed a three year contract - not a one year loan as widely reported. So could he be the new midfielder arriving imminently?

3.) 27 Jul 2017 15:12:47
Bouchalakis just signed on a perminant deal, three year contract.

4.) 27 Jul 2017 15:54:44
Was saying yesterday that we would sign two midfielder though, one being Bouchalakis and another. Though the Bouchalakis deal is perm rather than loan I still expect another midfielder by the weekend.



16 Jul 2017 05:42:48
What's happened with the Michael Hector loan move from Chelsea?


1.) 16 Jul 2017 06:19:57



31 Jan 2017 11:18:20
McCormack in on loan from villa and Gboly Aribiyi from Chesterfield? Both good sources according to reports. McCormack has always terrorised us and would be a very useful addition.


1.) 31 Jan 2017 11:42:24
McCormack is a goal scorer at championship level, not doing great at Villa and maybe a change might see him come good again. Don't know much about the other lad. Forest also said to have made contact about Bogle. Looks like a busy day ahead. let's hope for a good outcome.

Ariyibi undergoing medical at Forest now according to Sky.

4.) 31 Jan 2017 12:13:36
Buy or loan for Ariyibi? Is he any good?

5.) 31 Jan 2017 12:37:11
Permanent deal. Out of contract in summer so nominal fee as per Chambers. Still plenty of the £6 million left Fawaz?

6.) 31 Jan 2017 14:03:32
If all these players supposedly coming who's fawaz selling expect the worst reds fans.



25 Jan 2017 09:21:07
Forest after Matty James from Leicester on loan but James prefers a move to Barnsley according to rumours.


1.) 25 Jan 2017 10:05:35
No thanks he is not fully recovered from an injury, that is why they want him out on loan to get fit, we have enoughof them. If GB is meeting FAH in London tonight who is going to be at Leeds😎

2.) 25 Jan 2017 11:19:06
Brazil met Fawaz on Tuesday evening.

3.) 25 Jan 2017 12:04:41
I don't think he will improve the squad.



16 Jan 2017 16:02:24
Pat Murphy top midlands journo and hugely respected has said that we are to announce DOF and finance director within the next week. Has Fawaz realised at last that the club has to get something right before it's too late?


1.) 16 Jan 2017 16:17:31
Jobs for his brothers

2.) 16 Jan 2017 16:39:50
Finally realised he needs help only took him four years.

3.) 16 Jan 2017 17:10:10
I'll give them a month before they realise what kind of man they're working for then they'll be gone like all the rest.

4.) 16 Jan 2017 17:33:13
Dead cert to be a nepotism appointment so my money is on Al-Capone and Al-Jolson? Boom boom!

Ive said it so many times but Ben Brereton is absolutely awful. Yes we can't defend but every time the ball is played up to him it's a total waste of time. Typical Warnock crap but he always wins and we just can't learn. It's not like you don't know what to expect? One positive is get Colback back to Newcastle as Bridcutt was by far the shining light. Left back, centre half and a proper striker are just 3 players for starters.


1.) 21 Apr 2018 22:35:32
So Nick were you actually watching properly?
What chances did anyone create for him?
When did he receive one quality ball?
Did vellios get one either?
The answer is no.
It's a disfunctoonal side that flatters to deceive,if your that way inclined?
It's not just the individuals it's the set up,it just asks for trouble and that's what we're getting.

2.) 21 Apr 2018 23:06:27
Nick, don’t talk silly he’s come out of our academy - he’s one of our own and just needs time. 🤔

3.) 22 Apr 2018 07:31:45
He needs to go out on loan. he's not good enough yet to lead our frontline. Especially if we want to push for top 6 next season.

4.) 22 Apr 2018 08:11:49
It’s blatantly obvious he isn’t good enough. Backs into players and falls over whenever the ball is played to him. People on here will not have a bad word said about him but if we want to do well next season he can’t be anywhere near the squad. That goes for many others too, not singling him out. He should be behind Walker in the pecking order, a much better striker



31 Jan 2018 19:01:20
Not sure if we are signing Watson, Colback and Guedioura but AK has certainly decided what we all needed. Certainly some experience and yellow cards amongst those. Along with a 6'8" keeper we will be such a stronger outfit. At last a manager that knows the championship.


1.) 31 Jan 2018 19:03:38
If these players go through be one of the best windows we’ve had for a long time

2.) 31 Jan 2018 19:09:05
Absolutely Skeggsy!!! I'm due in bed soon. up early,might just stay up a while longer!!!

3.) 31 Jan 2018 19:22:38
Just love the player profile strategy. Experienced pro's with a point to prove.

Come and join us on loan and play for a summer contract?

Top man AK

4.) 31 Jan 2018 19:23:45
Skegs I did tell you this bloke knows what He's doing
Not frightened of big time Charlies
Either play or go was his message after last night

5.) 31 Jan 2018 19:34:55
Skeggy -we could be on for a few beers to celebrate some quality deals going through, fingers crossed!! 🍻

6.) 31 Jan 2018 20:17:29
I’ve already started there’s so many I better get another crate in I’m loving this window for a change been a long time coming and the people running the club are actually showing us that there backing us all good days to come now let’s have stability once and for all 🍺🍺🍺🍺on me lads



19 Jan 2018 17:51:35
Jamie Ward unavailable tomorrow with yet another hamstring injury. Time for him to go? A very useful player when fit, problem is he never is. His contract along with Hobbs and Cohen needs terminated. Would free up wages for younger players and allow AK to bring in players surely.


1.) 19 Jan 2018 18:19:36
You can't terminate em till seasons end.
So no point harping on about it.
Best just to forget them as forest players,I did that along time ago with all the sick notes.

2.) 19 Jan 2018 18:19:52
And mills fox and sell darikwa as well.
Plus carayol.

3.) 19 Jan 2018 19:03:46
Think that’s harsh on Dawinkra. he is still fairly young, a Notts lad with good experience and he was improving and looking pretty good before he got injured, certainly good enough as backup/competition for Lichij!

4.) 19 Jan 2018 20:03:10
I don’t think the club can afford to spend that amount of money on a back up player. Lichaj or Darikwa, we can afford both if they are to play the same position. Is there anyway Darikwa could play right mid ?



06 Jan 2018 18:57:13
Happy new year to you all. Haven't been on for a while after refusing to participate in a certain persons posts, who now by the way is ranting on the NEP website. Been thinking about new managers being mentioned and it seems that whoever gets the job is doomed before he starts according to the posts on this site. The new regime including owner has far more football knowledge than FAH and although perhaps only in Greece has become used to winning and that's probably the reason for the sacking of MW and his team. After achieving his first goal of getting the fans back attending games again I for one would be surprised to see a so called smaller name In Heckingbottom. People have mocked today the likes of Tuchel being mentioned? Marinakis is no fool so don't be surprised if someone we least expect is appointed, even if that is a big name. The one thing that every true Forest fan should do is accept the decision and Support the club. MW was a nice guy and I was desperate for him to succeed but in a results business, his were simply not good enough. Whoever the new man is, I for one hope you can achieve what everyone who cares for our great club wants.


1.) 06 Jan 2018 19:57:38
Lol Nick, I saw them he other night - like ten successive Rants! Bizarre !

2.) 06 Jan 2018 19:59:00
That’s a phenomenal post Nick.

3.) 06 Jan 2018 20:22:15
Oh Nick, if I’d have known I was keeping you away I wouldn’t have made the resolution not to post on here anymore !!

Glad you are still reading guys. I hope my arguments are not to complicated for you.

4.) 06 Jan 2018 20:29:31
I hope your grammar is not "to complicated" (sic.) either. Stay in your self-imposed exile, Wishey. Saying people may find your posts too complicated, then employing the wrong grammar, just about sums you up. Insulting people's intelligence and making basic primary school English mistakes is hilarious.

5.) 06 Jan 2018 20:51:10

Everyone makes mistakes, just as you have missing the second o off the too complicated.

6.) 06 Jan 2018 20:52:29
I bet half a dozen people in Cambridge are laughing their socks off at that one hogpuma.

How many times did you check your own post for grammatical errors, before pressing the reply button?

7.) 06 Jan 2018 21:00:40
Yippee he’s back. !

8.) 06 Jan 2018 21:19:45
It’s not the grammer nor is it the complication of your posts, it's just that there wrong!

9.) 06 Jan 2018 21:33:13
Grey and Red. Er, yes. That's what the sic. is there for. I was pointing out that, whilst insulting everyone else on this site by insinuating that his posts were "to complicated" (sic.) he make a schoolboy error with his grammar. Perhaps he should think twice before leaving insulting posts.

10.) 06 Jan 2018 21:50:30
Greyandredman that's "sic" 😅😅😅

11.) 06 Jan 2018 21:59:07
Contain yourself 2 Star, I’m not stopping.

Just couldn’t resist playing gooseberry. So touching, to be the catalyst that brought you together.

To get a grammar lesson TOO was a bonus.

12.) 06 Jan 2018 22:02:03
Your post wasn't too complicated for me, hogpuma.😉

13.) 06 Jan 2018 22:28:05
Oh there you go again hogpuma.

I was not having a go at ‘everyone’. There are several people, who post on this site, I have the upmost respect for. I was actually having a go ‘back’ at two posters who were having a a laugh at my expense, because the brave little warriors didn’t think I was here.

Thanks for the grammar lesson (Sic. indeed)

14.) 06 Jan 2018 22:31:39
Thank you, Scouse. I don't like arrogant hypocrites who ranted that calling Warburton 'Breadman' was disrespectful then insulted the intelligence of those who disagreed with him. Nobody likes a Contrary Mary, even if she does know her way round a hoe.

15.) 06 Jan 2018 22:39:38
There's some fishermen on here tonight.

16.) 06 Jan 2018 23:00:21
I wouldn’t disrespect your intelligence hogpuma, that’s been bought and paid for, that has.

Now I’ve thanked you for my grammar lesson and I’m sure Greyandredman appreciated his Latin lesson, but if I want insulting I have to tell you, you’ll have to up your game. Contrary Mary! I’m cut to the quick, I am. However am I going to sleep.

17.) 06 Jan 2018 23:07:28
Why don’t you stick around wishey ? After all it’s only banter and 22 muppets prancing around on a football pitch.
By the way Nicks post about the manager is what I applaud.

18.) 07 Jan 2018 02:27:00

Not only did i find it too complicated, i found it 2 complicated. 😁

19.) 07 Jan 2018 09:22:17

I thought he had missed the (kle) to spell sickle and he was wanting to help the grounds people cut the pitch. 😁 😁 😁 😁

20.) 07 Jan 2018 17:02:17
Wishey your posts are far from complicated or complex.
You have been sulking since hovis went hence the scarlet pimpernel act of disappearing and not getting the role as manager of forest has upset you further.
So lay off hogpuma because his grammar bothers you.



18 Jul 2017 15:15:23
Really pleased with the BA business as far as the amount is concerned. Would really like to see a properly proven goal scorer come in now as we have the youth already. Cameron Jerome or Gary Hooper for me. Probably get either for around £4 million in today's crazy market. Got a feeling however that it might end up being a loan from premiership. Would still love to see a real strong leader in midfield as that is essential.


1.) 18 Jul 2017 15:57:40
The worry is they might try and get by with the current squad citing 'the need for financial prudence' etc.

2.) 18 Jul 2017 16:57:33
The Britt deal was only a good one if the money is reinvested into the right areas.

Given we;ve been second best in midfield for donkeys, i'd start with two central midfielders to get the ball out quicker and address that woeful concession rate.

Then get a right back who offers natural width and a left back.

Any money left goes towards a striker and a consistently reliable CB.

3.) 18 Jul 2017 17:32:35
Totally agree mate!

4.) 18 Jul 2017 18:39:15
Are next signings will be a right back a center mid a keeper and an out and out striker.

5.) 18 Jul 2017 23:09:14
I agree with cjay. If we are to spend a few million on any player it would be centre mid for me. With the young strikers we have Brereton, Cummings, Clough I believe they should be given the chance to fill the void left by Britt and maybe signing someone like Murphy for a season with all his experience will help bring these lads on.

Making Ben Watson captain should be priority which is a start.

Name? Or just guessing? Was quite surprised that amongst some very good deals done that one wasn’t a left back.

In a swap for Ward. Absolutely great deal. Get it done before anything gets in the way. Looks like Colback happening too. No nonsense players that will really improve us without doubt.

Last night and last Saturdays games were probably a blessing in disguise. Give AK some credit as he’s given the players an opportunity to impress. They haven’t so he’s taking charge of the situation immediately. At last we have a man in charge who means business and will not accept the rubbish that certain players produce. I’ve got a feeling that by the start of next season their won’t be many left of the current squad.

How many years will it take for us to defend any type of set piece????? It’s absolutely pathetic. Lots of possession but the usual end product. What do we pay managers for?

Just a question if that’s the case. Who plays at the back?

I did say sell, sell , sell. As I did when Brereton was touted for the same 2 star. Neither are good enough

No matter who comes in as manager or players it just seems that nothing ever changes? Other clubs get a new manager and results immediately improve. What’s happened to the team that played at Wolves? If someone has the answer can they please tell me because we are destined for relegation and we seem to be in total free fall.
