Paul Taylor has said the manager wants proven scorers at Championship level, that's right two scorers and that Marriott is a back up option, or he would just be a bonus. He also said Pantilimon Tomlin, and Colback are all still wanted by the manager, and Soudani is looking less likely.

He says a lot of things that end up being rubbish. he said Hutton was being released an hour later he had signed another contract with villa. he uses second hand news and try’s to make it his own.

I think that the word we are looking for is plagiarism!

15 Jun 2018 19:58:51
Or just plain STUPID?

15 Jun 2018 12:44:46
really really pleased with the new signings but we still need full backs and strikers any suggestions not sure if marriot deal going to happen.

Agree2 Disagree0

Take your pick
Full backs
Or cash could do a job right wing back.
I'm hoping we play 352 formation

Good signings yesterday anyone know when the kit is on general sale?

Agree0 Disagree0

I would have thought that with the commission payable to Mendes with regard to the two latest transfers, that Forest could have saved the money and signed at least two more players. As I understand it the commission is 20%.

Thats the natur of the game burncross all players have agents buying clubs have no choice but to pay up when pogba went to man utd his agent made 40 million its obsene i know .

15 Jun 2018 19:23:31
Given the price of season cards at Forest why on earth are you moaning about the cost signing two top class players who are head and shoulders above the talent we have?

Bury @ Home in first round of Carabao Cup. Nice to get an easy home game to start. COYR.

What are everyones thoughts on the new kit?

Also, any news on the potentially outgoing players?
- Henderson, Kapino, Mancienne, Traoré, Ward, Vellios, Murphy, Cummings, etc.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not too fussed on it. doesn't really matter to me if they play in Alf Garnett's string vests!!! As long as we're challenging the top 6!!! FTID!!!

The worst in a long time and not helped by the sponsor logo name which is naff. Past the age of wearing replica shirts but would not be seen dead in this one even if we went the Wembley.
Hopefully the sponsorship deal will offset the fall in shirt sales for this fashion disaster?

So let's take stock, attacking midfielder (playmaker) - tick, winger - tick, experienced CB - tick. What else does the team REALLY need to be competitive?
An experienced GK
Another playmaker
Another winger

I make that around another 20m that needs to be spent if we're going to be competitive.

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Jun 2018 09:29:57
GK - Pantilimon (500k - 1.5m)
LB - Clark (Free - 500k) / Potts (500k - 1.5m)
AM - Tomlin (1m - 2m)
W - Maddison (4m - 5m)
ST - Marriot (6m - 7m) / Grabban (5m - 6m)
ST - Soudani (Free)

Min spending: 10.5m / Max spending: 17m

I personally would get Pantilimon (circa 1m), Clark (Free), Maddison (circa 4.5m), Soudani (Free), Marriot (circa 6.5m). Total: 12m

15 Jun 2018 09:40:43
GazzaRed, i should think the strikers will come to abot £15m so the other two will take it up to at least £25m, unless we get more loan players.

15 Jun 2018 10:29:00
No doubt the club will be looking in to the European loan market, I'd expect at least 2 or 3 more to come through that channel using the connections we clearly have with some key players in that market. I fully expect Soudani to be a forest player come the start of the season. Marriot has big question marks over his head and that deal isn't looking highly likely right now. If we were that keen on him, he'd be a Forest player already. I think a lot of our activity relies on the outgoings, we need to sell big before we can buy big. The club will need a guarantee that their wage bill isn't going to be sky high next season to ensure the club is sustainable. That means the likes of Henderson, Kapino, Mancienne, Traore, Lam, McKay, Ward, Ariyabi, Bouchalakis, Grant, Murphy, Clough, Walker, Cummings, Vellios all need to be shipped out. Taking a stab at it, I'd say that's around £180,000 per week in wages (or 9.4m per year). That could be the difference between being in or out of FFP. The question is, do the players want to play football or just pick up their pay cheque. It's a tough situation as a lot of these players will have to take pay cuts and probably move down a division or move abroad if they want regular football. I'd suggest the two most likely to stick around would be Henderson and Murphy. Henderson doesn't seem to mind picking up the money and not playing and as for Murphy, well we all knew at the time what a crazy contract that was to offer. The others, we should be able to move on or likely in most cases, loan out. Big challenges for the club over the coming month or so, a big mess still to clean up.
