New signing close but not Byram.


1.) 03 Aug 2018 18:15:54
Who, where seen, the source, and how much. Samtheman.

2.) 03 Aug 2018 20:22:53
It's Matty Mills!!!( 😂😂😂

3.) 03 Aug 2018 20:44:18
Rogie well do need a donkey for the mascot to ride around the pitch on.

4.) 03 Aug 2018 20:50:39
The one trick pony rogie 😃😃

5.) 03 Aug 2018 21:03:04
Abdoun!!! 😂😂

6.) 03 Aug 2018 21:56:40
Matt Mills the other half of the M&M's.
Ff799 will be doing handstands if he comes back as his most defended defender?
🤸🏼‍♀️ 🤸🏼‍♀️ 🤸🏼‍♀️ 🤸🏼‍♀️ 🤸🏼‍♀️

7.) 03 Aug 2018 22:42:12
And what happens to play nicely with your fellow forest fans?
Emm? Pot, kettle? Interesting?🤔🤔🤔

8.) 04 Aug 2018 04:04:13
Bring back Mcgugan he'd do a great job for the reds . Cliftonville that is 😂🤣😂🤣

9.) 04 Aug 2018 08:45:33
Sometimes the truth is hard to swallow? 😥 I seem to remember your robust defence of "Our Haley" after he gifted his regulation 2 goals at Brentford last season?🤫

10.) 04 Aug 2018 12:03:04
I used to always praise Hayley, but only to wind you up.
Always worked. 😁😁😁



27 Jun 2018 21:52:02
Caliari drop interest in soudani. Unwilling to match our transfer offer of £3 million euro with sell on clause. He'll be flying in tomorrow.


1.) 28 Jun 2018 09:56:26
Were they ever in it? Lived in Italy for 3 years and the press is worse than ours LOL

2.) 28 Jun 2018 10:00:11
Personal terms agreed, medical friday

3.) 28 Jun 2018 12:40:34
He'll be 31 in November. His goals and assists look good. Looking at the Transfer Mkt website I can't see how he would be worth 3 mill Euros. Is everyone sure about this guy?

4.) 28 Jun 2018 13:22:10
I hate to say this, but I watched a couple of his youtube clips last night, and wasn't that impressed. He may have scored a lot of goals, but when you look at the standard of what he was playing against, it was very very poor. He won't get the time and space to play like he does in the championship. I hope I'm wrong, but I think he will struggle at this level.

5.) 28 Jun 2018 14:37:44
YouTube shouldn’t be used to judge a player just to get an insight into what they offer and what I see is a strong skilful striker who can finish chances and create his own ones if need be he’s an experienced goal scorer just hope he can do it for us, to me he looks exactly like what we need in front of the Portuguese lads

6.) 28 Jun 2018 14:41:01
Abdoun and djebour looked good on you tube.
Remember how that worked out.

7.) 28 Jun 2018 14:48:57
People give him a chance.
I Don't understand why you have to slate someone before he's actually kicked a ball?
I really hope he proves all those who doubt his abilities.
Am I correct in assuming the other 3 players from Portugal give you the same assumption?
Youtube. . 🤔🤔🤔🤔

8.) 28 Jun 2018 15:21:36
Soudani is good but I still think AK has a bigger fish to sign as our main striker. Come on AK get on the phone to Peterborough and get the job done!

9.) 28 Jun 2018 15:30:03
You mean on the phone to Bournemouth.

10.) 28 Jun 2018 15:59:14
I agree with Joe. Marriott would be a great signing.
I hope we get him or we will end up watching him bang them in against us and other championship teams

11.) 28 Jun 2018 17:33:01
Red dog marriot is overpriced and unproven at championship level.
If he was valued at 3milion then he would be worth a punt.
Grab grabben ASAP.

12.) 28 Jun 2018 18:09:35
Agree to disagree Fawaz
Grabben has had a good year but not always been that prolific
Marriot will light up this league and would certainly rise in value.

13.) 28 Jun 2018 18:13:29
Totally agree Fawaz. we need a guaranteed goalscorer,not worth a punt at 6 MIL plus

14.) 28 Jun 2018 18:15:18
Fawaz - Assombalonga was unproved at Championship level as well and it didn’t phase him. We’ve just paid £13 million for a bloke from Portugal that nobody had heard of until last week. £5 million + Grant for a 23 year old who scored over 30 goals last season in the division below us is a good deal.

15.) 28 Jun 2018 18:40:21
I think your all wrong and ings will be on is way from Liverpool 😁

16.) 28 Jun 2018 19:52:47
What a miserable lot skeggs.
The sun's out we're about to sign the punisher and they're all arguing about forwards we won't sign.
Especially fbb😁😁😁

17.) 28 Jun 2018 20:00:03
But ff there are no nice you tube videos of him lol I saw a great one of a 6 year old kicking a ball in a bin maybe we should spend 3 mill on him instead

18.) 28 Jun 2018 20:22:27
Mitrovic please.

19.) 28 Jun 2018 21:13:33
Pint please 😂😂😂

20.) 28 Jun 2018 21:22:37
F79 I think red james is trying to be boringly negative and after trying to beat our thumbs down record but he just hasn't got it what do you think 😁

21.) 28 Jun 2018 22:06:05
Sorry lads, but I have to disagree with you all here. Abdoun, djebour and Lars all looked poor on youtube, and indeed they were not good enough. Some of you have put Soudani on a pedestal, but in my opinion he's the same standard as Cummings. Some of his goals are just comical with defenders just stood watching him walk past, and poor goal keeping. That's not going to happen in the Championship! I'm not slating him, and would love it if he did tear up the league. All I'm saying expectation level is way over for him.

22.) 28 Jun 2018 22:11:47
The only Ings Skegs will see next season is Ingoldmells!

23.) 28 Jun 2018 22:26:25
Skegsy hope u right ings would be fantastic on loan

24.) 28 Jun 2018 22:47:57
Could be right skeggs.
We'll have to be on our guard,with a Bit of training he could become a danger🤔🤔

25.) 28 Jun 2018 22:50:53
Ings is probably on 5 times the wages of our highest earner. It is a non-starter. Grabben would be a decent signing with the service we hope he will get this season.

26.) 28 Jun 2018 23:11:29
Stan and the Assman were both unproven but good business so can't see why Marriot couldn't work. Like the other 2 he is strong and can hold off players. I think you need a bit of muscle in the championship which is why a few of ours haven't made it. Grabban would be great too.

27.) 29 Jun 2018 06:33:23
Peterborough describes marriott as a small player who needs to be fed balls into the box.
Most of his goals were in the box.
I wouldn't regard him as a strong player.
2 up front he would be OK but as a lone striker not a chance in this league.



12 Jun 2018 19:38:53
Looks like Aitor wants Alan Hutton from villa. Been offered a 2 year contract.


1.) 12 Jun 2018 19:52:00

2.) 12 Jun 2018 19:54:52
Any fee involved?

3.) 12 Jun 2018 20:14:18
On a free I think

4.) 12 Jun 2018 20:52:23
So he's three years older than Eric . He'll be paid much more than Eric . His temperament is more questionable than Eric and he is contracted for two years!!! There must be logic in there somewhere but I am struggling to see it!!!!!

5.) 12 Jun 2018 21:39:11
I bow to the manager's decision making but my honest, instinctive reaction was - no thanks. Time will tell and as with everything, I'll wait until the club confirms it.👍

6.) 12 Jun 2018 23:12:10
One has been fighting for promotion the other has been in some of the worst back 4's to grace the championship

7.) 13 Jun 2018 09:33:17
Red tree surely that's a reflection of the squad that the player has been a part of rather than the player himself.

8.) 13 Jun 2018 10:42:39
Sgetty do you genuinely think Lichaj is better than Hutton? Honestly.

9.) 13 Jun 2018 12:42:47
Hutton is probably better than Eric.When you take into account wages and age and his discipline on the field I would describe the difference between them as negligible! It's certainly not a massive step up in my book! Oh and a two year contract to boot!!

10.) 13 Jun 2018 13:58:31
Hutton was a hot head in his younger days but if it hadn’t been for that he would have been top top player. At Spurs he was rated so highly and it was only his lack of discipline that held him back. To be fair in the last few seasons h hasn’t had a discipline problem and has looked a decent solid player certainly at championship level. I love Lichij but he is prone to the odd bad mistake. Personally wouldn’t be selling Lichij but would also be happy with Hutton!

11.) 13 Jun 2018 15:40:04
There's no probably about it Hutton is better. If we want to move up the table we need better players. I didn't realise you know our budget and his wage demands.

12.) 14 Jun 2018 12:04:49
I'm not sure that we'll move very far up the table by signing players who are probably better than what we already have. Probably!!



31 Dec 2017 16:40:31
Aitor karanka will be the next nottingham forest manager on a 3 and a half year deal.


1.) 31 Dec 2017 17:47:03
Where you heard that sam?

2.) 31 Dec 2017 17:40:41
Where has that been reported.?

Personal opinion is not fact.

3.) 31 Dec 2017 19:02:28
This is a rumour site. If it was a fact it wouldn't be a rumour. :P

4.) 31 Dec 2017 19:13:01
Seen a Marinakus tweet welcoming him as our new manager , but this may now be a fake.

5.) 31 Dec 2017 19:31:31

I have read it as a fact, there was nothing to suggest it was a rumour, no source stated, or even saying might be.

I have said Paul Taylor has said the Wigan manager was a candidate for the job, that is a fact yet it is on the rumours site.

6.) 31 Dec 2017 23:32:30
Grey your taking this rumour page to seriously he never said fact he just put what he may of heard up that’s how i red it afterall it is a RUMOURS page.
Taylor saying someone is in the frame isn’t fact at all as he would of just heard something doing the rounds and not from the owners mouth!

7.) 01 Jan 2018 20:04:22
Yes you are right. Sr85



27 Aug 2017 11:30:16
Ipswich boss Mick Mc Carthy wants to take Jack Hobbs on loan.
We'd be better off sending Mills.


1.) 27 Aug 2017 12:27:02
Yes Mills isn't good enough anymore !

2.) 27 Aug 2017 14:19:38
Mills was never good enough!

£8 million bid for Bamford been rejected by Boro.


1.) 24 Jun 2018 08:48:30
Good!There are better strikers out there than bambi.

2.) 24 Jun 2018 10:14:18
Apparently they want 10 million for him

3.) 24 Jun 2018 10:46:07
And I thought things were going great 8 million for Bamford somebody is having a crazy spell. shake your head about look in the mirror and have a word with yourself.

4.) 24 Jun 2018 10:57:30
Are you talking to me?
Huh are you talking to me?
Lol. mirror mirror on the wall who’s overpriced out of them all?

5.) 24 Jun 2018 14:43:58
Let the chosen one decide☝️
If he wants bamford,then let him have bamford,He's obviously part of the plan??
You can't applaud one minute when he signs young Portuguese talent and then criticise when you think bamford is not good enough??🤔🤔🤔

6.) 24 Jun 2018 17:23:46
Bamford is shocking he has proven that himself. There is better out there for the price Middlesbrough want for him. fry and pulis have pulled figures from the sky to put ridiculous prices on their players.

7.) 24 Jun 2018 18:24:03
Fawaz karanka wants him, has the euphoria of signing 13 million unknown Portuguese players worn off???
You can't jump up and down one minute when he signs players you've never heard of and then say he doesn't know what he's doing becaus3 you don't rate bamford?????

8.) 25 Jun 2018 10:04:36
FF no it hasn’t worn it’s the fact krankie wants to spend so much on bambi.
I’m more than sure the other signings will shine and prove doubters wrong.
To say I can’t jump and down is wrong.
I post what I feel and only the ed can dictate what’s siad by me.
Some aren’t satisfied and when things are good they seem to find something to gripe about moan about!
The foremoaners will always Moan regardless.



15 Jul 2017 12:22:30
Burnley have said they will match whatever Boro offer for Britt, so will be interesting to see what happens next.


1.) 15 Jul 2017 12:33:36
If true, Premiership over Championship every time. We do not help another Championship club, and the player uses Burnley to showcase his talent in the Premiership making them a stepping stone in his career.

2.) 15 Jul 2017 12:51:01
We will see what happens in the coming days put it this way I'd rather him go to Burnley than middelsbourgh plus I think he would want to test himself in the EPL.

3.) 15 Jul 2017 13:22:57
Unfortunately they will accept both bids it's then down to the player and his agent to see who offers the best deal. boro will offer more wages as Burnley are on a budget.

4.) 15 Jul 2017 14:17:00
Up the forest Burnley sold Keane for 25 mill they get millions every year for tv money that's why nearly every club in the EPL in this window will break there transfer record so I'm sure Burnley won't have any problems being able to afford 14 mill and 60 grand a week wages if they don't pay it it's cus they don't want to pay not cus they can't afford to pay it.

5.) 15 Jul 2017 14:46:56
i never said they couldn't afford it I said they won't do it because they work to a budget. that budget may get bigger every season but they work to one. most bottom end clubs should do this just in case they get relegated. if that happens to Burnley they don't have to worry because the house is in order.

6.) 15 Jul 2017 15:56:54
UTF. Like you say Burnley stick to a certain budget, but if they continue to do that why bother with a £8m bid for a player that is worth so much more to us than that, and off course the transfer costs keep spiralling every window.

7.) 15 Jul 2017 19:52:30
You wouldn't bid what your willing to pay first bid would you? that's just mental.

8.) 15 Jul 2017 21:36:20
UTF. No i would not, however for us to replace him goals to game ratio without taking a gamble on a relative unknown would make the £8m look like a part payment. £15m is a popular figure among posters, i would say that is fairly realistic relative to how hard it will be to replace him, so Burnley should have started at £12m to expect to pay £15m, if they expected competition for him then that figure rises.

9.) 16 Jul 2017 06:19:36
Maybe Dyce read this forum and seen the post about the 8mill release clause! maybe it was a tester to see if we actually needed the money, you know calling our bluff. fans opinions aren't they've all and end all. burlney work in the real world and they were just trying the water. they wouldn't of looked that daft if we accepted it.

10.) 16 Jul 2017 10:15:11
Maybe Dyce read MW saying something like he will only leave at a price that suits Forest, therefore knowing his bluff was always going to be called.



12 Aug 2016 18:58:11
Britt and mills not in even in the squad for tonights game at Brighton.
what's going on.


1.) 12 Aug 2016 19:30:24
Happy to see Mancienne back, hoping him and Perquis can form good partnership.

Carvalho will be in the starting eleven and possibly Tomlin if he signs.
