Being a financial person you take more notice of legal matters. If JJ Moore's loaned Forest money and it doesn't get repaid he not only has a charge over some properties around the City Ground that charge includes the City Ground.

Not certain how he could take possession to sell but he could charge Forest massively increased rents to force a sale. If people think Fawaz is smart then if he borrowed money before the deal was complete then he left himself wide open to having to repay the loan or lose property if it fell through.

Why would fawas have needed to borrow money from JJM. He made 15m at beginning of season from Burke pato and devries.

2.) 16 Jan 2017 10:33:26
Checking on Companies House website the charge appears to be on the Academy Training Facilities

3.) 16 Jan 2017 15:09:08
Fawaz was extremely niave in these negotiations. The americans offered some money up front to sweeten the deal and Fawaz took it like candy to a baby. I think the key word is negotiation and with the clubs ever dwindling stock, the price was only ever going to come down. There's a lot of figures being banded around but if the offer was 40m, Fawaz will live to regret not taking that money and running because in another seasons time, the club could be worth less than half of that.

The city ground isn't owned by us it's owned by the council so would they still be entitled to it? surely they would only be entitled to assets that the club actually own?



16 May 2016 21:03:49
Qoute from journo Alan Nixon on bird site. "Forest. To save asking question Greeks expect to get the deal done. Working on a sporting director and foreign coach. All on it for now". He's not usually far off the mark.


1.) 16 May 2016 21:38:54
Be careful of taking in all he says. he's let his emotions rule him when it came to dougie. they are mates and he blocked anyone who didn't share the view of him being our saviour. let's hope he is right and doesn't let's his mates sacking get in the way.

I hope the bread man was watching the match tonight. The league leaders play the ball quickly support with numbers play 2 genuinely up front and basically are just a bunch of honest players giving their all. Not the tippy tappy stuff in our own half for ages that MW seems to think is the way forward. It might give us stability but will get us nowhere any time soon. Possession is one thing but if you use it like we did first half last Saturday it's pointless.


1.) 27 Oct 2017 22:07:44
Yep he watched em,then went out and beat them.
Just saying

2.) 27 Oct 2017 23:34:11
Yes but who's top of the league tonight? Their style wins a lot more games than it loses. They don't fear anyone we fear ourselves.

3.) 27 Oct 2017 23:41:32
Fear ourselves?

4.) 28 Oct 2017 11:55:04
I would defo rather have a win agaisnt top of the table than actually be top of the table.

5.) 28 Oct 2017 12:12:56
You having a Giraffe mate??

6.) 28 Oct 2017 12:13:31
Sheff.Ud 12 points better off than us ,tables Don,t lie .
Before Montania I wanted Wilder here when he was at Northampton ,I,ve often wanted Warnock ,both better than most of our choices over the last 19 years but what do fans know?


7.) 28 Oct 2017 13:04:18
Quite right Carlo we need managers who know how to set teams up to win not just play pretty passing games for the sake of it.

8.) 28 Oct 2017 14:15:39
Not according to 79 he'd much rather watch pretty football and matt mills just saying πŸ˜ˆπŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

9.) 28 Oct 2017 14:33:23
Hilarious from the man who can't stand Warburton,but hasn't got the bottle to come out and say he wants him out.
You carry on sitting on the fence jonny😚😚

10.) 28 Oct 2017 15:06:07
You do make me laugh about bottle when all you do is agree with the main characters on here I don't like mills but as for MW I don't agree with all of his ways only because there's a couple of players who deserves a chance in the squad but you wouldn't see that because of the special MW rose tinted glasses πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

11.) 28 Oct 2017 15:19:53
No matter who the manager was,He'd leave someone out that we wouldn't agree with,no one knows what goes off behind the scenes,

12.) 28 Oct 2017 18:12:36
Stop crying about the manager you redds

13.) 28 Oct 2017 18:28:20
Enjoying the game Jonny?
We're wining with tippy tappy football and no bellies.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

14.) 28 Oct 2017 18:54:06
Why does mw need to watch a team he's already beat lol just shows you what a good manager he his and when he gets some good money to buy decent players it will only get better coyrs 3-1 tonight

15.) 28 Oct 2017 18:55:08
Easy win for forest and mw this evening mw one of the best managers we've had for a long time simples

16.) 28 Oct 2017 19:27:56
Skeggs and it's hi hi we love warbo



07 May 2017 16:06:51
In the emotion of the day for once let's give the ref some praise. Wasn't over fussy didn't bottle big decisions tried to keep the game flowing and helped us to build momentum. Well done.


1.) 07 May 2017 18:08:01
Agreed. He had a very good game.

2.) 07 May 2017 18:14:12
Best ref this season, could have booked Worrall and ward first half
Nice to have a ref who knows it's about the football and not him.

3.) 07 May 2017 18:53:24
Thoroughly agree regarding the referee. It's always a good sign that he's having a good game when you don't notice him and the game flows. The penalties were nailed on, he didn't make himself the centre of attention and he did very well indeed.



15 Mar 2017 09:02:44
To be fair to GB and JL they had an almost impossible task whatever their perceived failings. A disparate bunch of old players new players brought in by sacked manager loanees out of contract injured etc. They had to try and get them performing something they hadn't done under more experienced managers at a time when morale at the club was at an all time low. Takeover had just fallen through and all the talk was there jobs would go back to academy at end of season anyway. That's never a recipe for getting best out of players low in confidence anyway. In the circumstances let's thank them for their efforts and hope they get the opportunity to carry on the great work at the academy.




21 Jun 2016 10:41:01
All the moaning about not waiting until after the Euro's for Martin O'Neill. Way ROI are going he will home before we've appointed a manager.

Alan Nixon on bird site has mentioned that the wage demands of some of those named may be an issue.


1.) 21 Jun 2016 11:23:07
Pay Peanuts = Get Monkeys.

2.) 21 Jun 2016 13:33:33
pay everyone what they want = ffp.

3.) 21 Jun 2016 13:34:21
pay people a sensible basic and realistic bonuses = common sense.

4.) 21 Jun 2016 14:36:46
We have paid over the odds in the past in relation to players and managers, and we are still paying some managers off. It is about time we tightened our purse strings. Also it looks like Fawaz is not making the decisions over salaries. If he were people would get what salary they wanted, especially now we are out of FFP. Does anyone know when Pedro starts.

5.) 21 Jun 2016 19:29:31

Exactly right, i would prefer to pay extra for a top manager then ten Giggs types.



24 Mar 2016 15:18:17
So the cat is out of the bag, Serbian Ivan Vukomanivic claims to have held face to face talks with Fawaz over the managers role and is preparing for a second meeting. Just the totally inexperienced no knowledge of English football guy we are looking for. At least he is used to getting the sack after 3 months that should fit in nicely with Fawaz style. I thought I'd missed a week and it was 1st April. Fawaz credibility going to plummet if this is the level of manager he is considering.


1.) 24 Mar 2016 17:18:48
He'll be a cheap option on a short-term contract so Fawaz can save some dosh. His investment days are over, he'll be scrimping until the club is saleable.

2.) 24 Mar 2016 18:24:52
What have I been saying for days/ weeks? No stellar manager coming just more run of the mill. If it's true don't buy a season ticket.

3.) 24 Mar 2016 20:27:56
Think it will be nigel clough.

4.) 25 Mar 2016 15:17:16
He'll end up with Clough by default. Fans will slag anyone else off and leave Fawaz in a bind. He'll reach for the next club legend in a panic.

Funny how NC seems like a decent option now? I'd of poked your eyes out last week for suggesting it.

There may well be one manager available in a few weeks time. Martin O'Neill is the one manager we have never had that we should have had and he showed the other night he can still get sides up for the challenges. He may well have one more job in him and if the RoI don't qualify for the World Cup he may just be available for the January transfer window.

I'm not advocating change as such but availability of alternatives may be just as important in the timing of a managerial change as results.

Perhaps but Sheffield Utd showed how to play in this league. High tempo pressing the opposition in their half. Getting the ball forward quickly and players supporting quickly. Our defending not much better than Wednesday so could be on the end of a real hiding next weekend with our pedestrian way of playing.

I understand your concerns Burncross, you do have to ask why the owner of a major European team is so desperate to buy Forest? . Doesn't really make any sense and his comments in the Greek press don't give you much comfort that he is doing it for.

This is the same Greek who Fawaz blamed for saddling us with a manager and players who were crap. Is this Fawaz revenge on the fans criticising him? I should have expected Fawaz to stoop this low to maintain his ego. Referees beware.

There is far too much expectation being put on Clough just because of his fee. He hadn't been having as much an impact at Bolton this season and bearing in mind ridiculous money being paid he cost a relatively small amount. If he was as good as some on here think he would have cost 2 or 3 times what we paid and almost every club in the top 2 divisions would have been chasing him. He's Young and still learning he's not going to dominate games yet wherever he plays. Give him time and we will see the talent but he's at a new club and settling in. We need to use him sparingly and build his confidence not heap pressure on him to dominate games for us only to find he's not quite ready for that. We're far too quick to build up expectations of players.

I agree to some extent with your point. However the ones who have left weren't really putting pressure on the starting XI. There is real competition now and even if there aren't wholesale changes on Saturday the pressure on those who do play will be ramped up knowing the players in the wings are more than capable of replacing them now not some hangers on who we couldn't wait to get rid of.

Good business yesterday but the real irony of all the departures was that only Ward was remotely involved in the game on Tuesday.

I don't wish to detract from Saturdays performance at all. All it goes to illustrate is that we are good enough as a squad to be successful if the manager knows how and sets out to win games instead of trying to out pass the opposition with no purpose. The real test though will come in our next home game when the emphasis will be on us to break down the opposition. We will then see how good we can be with a winning manager as I think that is harder to achieve than a performance like Satudays

Don't totally disagree Gazza but sometimes keeping people where they can do the most long-term good is perhaps the best use of the resource so keeping Brazil in his academy role is the way forward. However we have seen that giving the players more freedom to express themselves away from a rigid way of playing is the best way to use this squad. My fear is that we bring in a manager just as rigid as MW who stifles them again.
