Forest in advanced talks with Middlesboro over signing of Marvin Emnes, deal would involve cash plus Ishmail Miller.

source Oboyle News

Believable11 Unbelievable26

Who the ecks o Boyle news

Simon

Agree0 Disagree0

So Emnes starts the cup game, scores a goal and then they want to offload him? I don't think so!

Agree0 Disagree0

They're not going to turn down a former premier league attacker plus cash for emnes are they?

Agree0 Disagree0

We've appaerently been in touch with Gary Madine's agent. He's injured now but also unsettled. Would be a great signing - proven scorer. Expect further news when he's fit.

Agree0 Disagree0

When did madine get injured last night ? cuz he started for wednesday last night

Agree0 Disagree0

Madine is a decent forward but not sure I would want someone with his history at the club.
Needs to do some growing up.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why not check your facts before making yourself look a plank.Madine played last night.

Agree0 Disagree0

He played last night and came off injured iirc.

DM.

Agree0 Disagree0

Emnes looks good on you tube(is the new stan collymore about to arrive)would be a good signing"

Agree0 Disagree0

Work in an office full of carlisle utd fans, gary madine not well thought with regards to his attitude both on and off the pitch, not a team player in their eyes.

Agree0 Disagree0

Moussa is not even on the bench tonight so looks like he is not signing. Defence has looked solid but we need another striker but cox isn't playing.

Believable9 Unbelievable6

Moussa wasn't on the bench because he's on trial, Simon Cox is away with Ireland, you muppet!!

Agree1 Disagree1

Moussa can't be on the bench if he hasn't signed yet, Cox is away on international duty

Agree1 Disagree0

Strikers are all very well but they have to have service. Halford and Magic are not wingers.Stick the ball in the box and dex with net. Simple as that. Get another winger or two in ASAP and with dex and cox we will really be up there.

Agree0 Disagree0

COX AWAY WITH INTERNATIONALS

Agree1 Disagree0

Moussa hasnt signed yet that why he cant be on the bench and cox is playing for ireland so he wouldnt play

Bridgeford stand crew

Agree0 Disagree0

No point me saying where cox is ? lol,
has moussa been offered owt yet ?

Derby are planning a raid on rivals Nottingham Forest for Kieron Freeman.

Freeman has requested a move away from Forest in search of regular first-team football.

Believable17 Unbelievable5

If he doesn't want to play for the club, then best he moves on

Agree0 Disagree0

County have made an offer for him. Hec played well and impressed whilst on loan to them. Good luck to him but he's not good enough at the moment to get a regular place with us.

Agree0 Disagree0

Thought he played well pre-season ? he and lascelles are the type of product we want from our academy ! a season loan if he's not gonna play much, dont sell him !

pinxton {Ed034's Note - You say don't sell him, but he's asked to leave. Not really got much of a choice

Agree0 Disagree0

I would stick him in the A team for 3 months whilst we sell him and free up his place in the reserves for someone who wants to play for us

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Aug 2012 18:04:20
its on skysports freeman has asked to leave! shame would have been a good prospect, looks like we definitely need another right back!

Believable11 Unbelievable5

We dont need more rbs we got halford moloney and lascelles may be able to play there also reegan is a rb/cb

Agree0 Disagree0

He's rubbish anyway

Agree0 Disagree0

Thats a well thought out reply ?

pinxton

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Aug 2012 18:01:44
By the end of the window their will be 3 more players in are squad Sam Hutchinson, a RM not moussa and one more. Plus Cox who will be announced properly after his international duty.

Personally I would like the RM to be Hammil and the other church then we would have a quality squad.

Believable7 Unbelievable4

Hammill would be great signing, just what we need. Can't see Church fitting in though mate. We have 4 strikers on the bench today, Dexter is playing, Cox on international duty and Findley rested so can't see him buying ANOTHER striker lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't you think some of our strikers will be sold, given away or loaned out though?

Agree0 Disagree0

SOD will look to sign Simon cox's ex team mate chris wood to add to their opptions upfront. The tall striker has an eye for goal and the New Zealand international is still only 20. He has become available after west brom have landed Lukaku on a season long loan.

Believable7 Unbelievable7

Same old same old.

people here that players are available and automatically come on here and claim us to be interested in them! same with Bullard and Lawrence...

Agree0 Disagree0

He would be a good addition I think he is definitely one for the future good player certainly better than 3 of our strikers!

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Aug 2012 16:42:28
Nottingham forest will look to add to their current opptions up front by signing free agent Louis Saha. Saha is a proven goal scorer in the prem and despite his injury problems would be a great addition to their squad.

Believable4 Unbelievable15

Wish that were true.

Agree0 Disagree1

Would love this to be true but can't see it

Agree0 Disagree0

Never going to happen, how old is he, and how much will he want in wages?

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Aug 2012 16:04:56
Forest set to let Ishmael Miller leave for around £700k to Boro. Also set to leave are Derbyshire (season loan to Blackburn) and Majewski (£650k to West Brom) Kieron Freeman the subject of bids from Notts County. Derby and Peterborough.

Sam Hutchinson set to join on season long loan from Chelsea and Forest set to offer contracts to trialist Franck Moussa.

Believable7 Unbelievable17

When did P'boro show any interest in Freeman? The only likely rumour is Miller but not at 700,000.

Agree0 Disagree0

If a prem team was to come in for Majewski they'd have to pay more than 650k!

Agree0 Disagree0

Already reported in the sun last week about majewski forest turned 1 mil down ,looking closer to 1.5 mil before they'd even consider it !

Agree0 Disagree0

I'll say one thing for you, you have a very active imagination!!

Agree0 Disagree0

2nd time ive seen sam hutchingson to forest mentioned ! is he a winger ?

pinxton {Ed034's Note - No rb

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't let raddy go Sean come on

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Aug 2012 15:52:36
Forest are set to launch a bid for Leeds star Ramon Nunez.

Believable8 Unbelievable16

He has been at 7 different clubs already or 9 if you include loans and he is only 26. so he might like to move again. Lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Not sure we need him. He's just a quicker but worse version of Majewski

Agree0 Disagree0

Why?
He is useless!
We have btter strikers

Agree0 Disagree0

Forest are going to sign free agent Jimmy Bullard after hes been released from Ipswich

EA

Believable4 Unbelievable27

Bloody hell i hope not

Agree1 Disagree0

Please no!
What a money grabbing waster. I think he would disrupt the dressing room.
Past it now.
Maybe Notts County would be a more suitable fit.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why do people link us with every 30+ free agents?

Grow up we won't get Bullard!

Agree0 Disagree0

Good player, injury prone and trouble whereever he goes. Think thats a NO!!

Agree0 Disagree0

No they are not why would we sign an old injury prone player that's on loads of wages when we have better already in the squad

Agree0 Disagree0

Yea, because we're short of central midfields aren't we?

Agree0 Disagree0

I really hope we dont, he had a very poor season according to alot of Ipswich fans

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont think so. He is passed it anyway. We already have better in midfield

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh ! another donkey been released , let's link him with mega/rich forest, love a good made up rumour

Agree0 Disagree0

Another midfielder and is past it I can see the sense and hard thought behind this post

Agree0 Disagree0

Over rated big Charlie ! Don't want him here spoiling the party.....Newark Red

Agree0 Disagree0

Another one of those where a player is released or becomes available and some clown decides to post on here that they are being signed up by forest... :S

Agree0 Disagree0

Doubt it he wants 1st team football he aint gonna get that with us

Agree0 Disagree0

Err no way ha ha ha your funny now go and sign yerself back into the funny farm

Agree0 Disagree0

The only truth in this statement is the "Bull" in Bullard!

Agree0 Disagree0

I WISH

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would we? Hes always injured! 7 league appearances from the bench and demands a high wage! Would be a waste of money!

RG09

Agree0 Disagree0

Didn't take long he's only been released today

Agree0 Disagree0

We don,t need any more midfield players just wingers

Agree0 Disagree0

Not going to happen. We have plenty of younger, better players for midfield.

Agree0 Disagree0

Charlie...... And party...... Apparently being the operative words, source, friends who run nightclubs in hull! Leave well alone

Agree0 Disagree0

Best before 2008 well past his sell by date his knees are always stopping him plaaying

Liam Lawrence signed for Greek side Poak FC, so that puts that rumour to bed.

Believable22 Unbelievable2

Can't even seeing them let him go on loan let alone a perminent deal. Would be exciting if we got him tho but think there is more chance of martin o'neil quitting management to come back and play at the city ground....

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Aug 2012 13:27:39
strong rumours going round that we have bid 2 million for jay spearing

in my opinion thats a bargain for a player who is a great premier league player

Believable8 Unbelievable14

Why do you use the word "Great"? If he was great as you put it He wouldn't be subject of bids such as 2 million and Liverpool would be keeping him.I would much prefer Shelvey.

Agree1 Disagree0

Surely wouldn't leave his boyhood / home club - especially as he just started to break through to the 1st team last season

IlsonRed

Agree0 Disagree0

According to Liverpool fans he ain't that good. He is definitely not in the 'great' bracket of premiership players

Agree0 Disagree0

Never gonna happen. We have plenty of centre mids

Agree0 Disagree0

Explain how he is a premier league great if he's in that bracket then you can count silenzi and rob rosario in

Agree0 Disagree0

Hes not great and we already have cm's crawling out our ears we need a rw and a rb now!

Agree0 Disagree0

Dream on, never going to happen, we have far to many midfielders at the club.

He isnt that good, 2 million best spent elsewhere!

Agree0 Disagree0

It's true, we do have loads of midfielders but he's a defensive mid. so maybe SoD might sell greening or moussi? personally i'd be sad to see both of them go. contrary to that poster from a few days ago, i rate greening quite highly and as for mousse, he's a legend

Agree0 Disagree0

2m i snap your hand off i'm a liverpool fan

Agree0 Disagree0

I've seen this rumour a couple of times. he isn't good enough for liverpool and has seriously struggled recently trying to play brendan rodgers game. looks likely to be sold but i'm not sure if he'll go to forest because you have quite a few cm's, and it's quite a bit of money to spend in an area you have cover in.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Aug 2012 12:54:42
Miller will go on loan with view to a £1.2 Million permanent deal to Middlesboro this week.

Believable13 Unbelievable9

Still no new back room staff ? Why ? {Ed034's Note - He maybe happy with the staff he's got

Agree0 Disagree0

Makes sense but we need to spend money wisely and swuftly-Hall or similar type for right wing.

Agree0 Disagree0

We can but hope and pray

Agree0 Disagree1

Why does he not have to serve a ban

Agree0 Disagree0

Be suprised if he goes at the moment, needs to prove his fitness and form at Forest.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope so total waste at forest maybe new environment will help him and we can get rid of his overpriced wage packet

Agree0 Disagree0

Not that much I've heard, only around 750k mark Good riddance though. Lazy, injury prone big time charlie. Ta ta

Agree0 Disagree0

Does he need a lift there?

Agree0 Disagree0

Cheap pacy wingers ,very rare & always injured I.e tyson ,Anderson , think we must be going 4.3.3

Agree0 Disagree0

Excellent news, let's hope. I think he could be good but sadly hasn't been so for us thus far.

Agree0 Disagree0

I have booked the taxi to take him!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Tell miller I'll be round his in 15 mins I'll drive him up to boro my self it will be the best 30 quid fuel money I have ever spent I have room for a few more wonder what greening and mcgoaldrought are up to just a thought

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Aug 2012 10:59:01
Hutchinson deal cud look 2 being abit closer cuz ivanavic does'nt hav 2 serve a ban 4 being sent off yesterday

Believable14 Unbelievable4

So cuz he doesnt have to serve a ban... why does that mean hutchinson deal looks to be closer than it already was? deal not going to have suddenly advanced in a day just because he isnt getting a ban.

Agree0 Disagree0

Does not have to serve any type of ban as he was sent off in a friendly

Agree0 Disagree0

If he is in the 25 man squad he wouldn't be loaned anyway and if he is not he can't fill in for ivanovic anyway

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Aug 2012 09:30:29
expect moussa to be unveiled too

Believable5 Unbelievable17

If he is good enough why was he released by Leicester and only played for them 8 times in 2 years

Agree0 Disagree0

The BBC football site for Forest has Frank Mussa as an additional player allready, do they know something we dont?

Agree0 Disagree0

Forest had rod fanni on trial once but he was rejected just saying

Agree1 Disagree0

We have had loads of players and released them that have done well wright-Phillips and huddlestone to name a couple

Agree0 Disagree0

Not all trailists get signed

Agree0 Disagree0

Leicester fans are laughing at us having Moussa on trail. They have said he is the worse player in yrs down there

Agree0 Disagree0

Good signing for a squad player, not the first XI, its a long season and we will pick up injuries/ suspensions.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Aug 2012 09:13:01
Nottingham Forest will complete their summer spending this week with the announcement of Simon Cox and Kelvin Wilson on permanent deals.

Sam Hutchinson (Chelsea) and Simon Church (Reading) will come in on season long loans, with Church having an option to buy as part of the deal.

Believable9 Unbelievable14

Cox has signed wilson isnt comin

Bridgeford stand crew

Agree1 Disagree0

This is all good but where are the wingers?..

Agree0 Disagree0

No wingers and what about all the trailists. Moussa? Syrian players?

Agree0 Disagree0

If the wilson and hutchinson is ture there coming forest to play games, just were are they going to play? watching the game on friday the back4 look ok just need time to gel not chop and change round every other game,

Agree0 Disagree0

The way forest have set up this season in pre seasons, wingers arent part of the passing style of play......expect full backs to push up more..

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought Kelvin was our best player 3 Seasons ago. I loved Wes Morgan too ... but he often cost us because of his charges forward which left us exposed at the back when he did this. I hope he does this against us this Season so that we can give some of our strikers free runs on goal! He will alwys be fondly remembered for his effort and goals though.....but going to Leicester was not nice...and now he is club captain!

Agree0 Disagree0

Hunt arriving from wolves

Agree0 Disagree0

Wilson is sitting on the bench at Celtic.Why would he come back to Forest to do the same?

Agree0 Disagree0

Church on his way season loan to huddesfield

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't remember Wes putting us in trouble from his forward runs?
i remember him being a Donkey and running like his laces where tied together but can't remember many times where his forward ambitions put us in trouble?

Agree0 Disagree0

Harsh. agree not the most gifted but a red thru n thru, if others played with his passion we wouldn't of been in the mire 4 most of last season

Agree0 Disagree0

Nottingham Forest are hoping to sign defender Sam Hutchinson on loan from Chelsea.

The 23-year-old has held talks with Forest boss Sean O'Driscoll, who is keen to take him to the City Ground on a season-long deal.

But he could now be needed as cover at Stamford Bridge given that Branislav Ivanovic must serve a suspension after being sent off in the Community Shield match against Manchester City westlndonsport.com

Believable11 Unbelievable5

Ivanovic will not be suspended unless the F.A. Look into it. It will only effect Friendly matches.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ivanovic doesnt have a suspension
