Believable14 Unbelievable19

We gotta have another go at getting Jordan Rhodes.Definitely a class act who will score goals in any division.
Amazing headed goal tonight for Scotland.
Just watch his movement.Like many great strikers,right place at right time.6 million would tie it up.
IERM

Agree0 Disagree0

Agreed. He will also go up in value surely. Very very good prospect, COYR

Agree0 Disagree0

Heard the sheep are looking at woods

Agree0 Disagree0

Would love Chris Woods, he was at Birmingham last year and was fantastic for them.

Agree0 Disagree0

I posted this a couple of weeks ago and he would be a good signing

We have bid 2million for thomas ince and if that bid fails then we are going to bid 500k for ryan hall

Believable21 Unbelievable10

Would lovevthisvto be true. Would also like Dobbie to be in contention {Ed034's Note -

Agree0 Disagree1

Blackpool wont let him go that cheap.

Agree1 Disagree1

Hope we can get either of them in!

Agree0 Disagree0

3 million for ince or half mill for hall. Has to be hall for me and the rest of the money spent elsewhere. {Ed034's Note - Both??? Why does it have to be one or the other???

Agree0 Disagree0

Good point ed. {Ed034's Note - If we can get both, it gives us options. Could be the difference between success and failure

Agree0 Disagree0

Get ryan hall now and let s,od bring him on. at 500k we cant lose

Agree0 Disagree0

If you get hall, don't let him organise the Christmas party! Lol

Agree0 Disagree0

What about Xmas party???

I work in Stoke and a few of the Stoke fans think we're in for Shotton and Pennant, both on loan. Stoke have just signed Keightly from Wolves, and the Shotton rumour has been around for a while. Both good loan signings i think.

Believable14 Unbelievable13

Don't like Pennant, bad attitiude, spells trouble

Agree1 Disagree1

The shotton transfer depends on if lascelles goes on loan and pennant would depend on if we are successful with Ince

Agree0 Disagree0

Would love it if this were true, could play both of them on the right.

Although, not sure how many loan players we will end up with if rumours are true ;-)

Agree0 Disagree0

Shorten is a cracking player. Not an out and out winger though, but could be seen as a right back by sod. Pennant, I cannot stand, but he would be an excellent championship winger IMO. Rather have hall though

Agree0 Disagree0

Played with Pennant at notts many years ago bad attitude then nothing changed dont want him

Agree1 Disagree0

If you played with him at Notts then he was about 15 at the most. I have never met a 15 year old who doesn't have a bad attitude. The right manager can soon sort that out.

Agree0 Disagree0

I bet many managers have said that about Joey Barton!! {Ed034's Note - But they'd be right about Barton. Pennant was bad news but seems to have sorted himself out

Agree0 Disagree0

Where's all these rumours about ince coming from? {Ed034's Note - Peter Blackburn. He's a journo I think, that said we enquired how much and got quoted around 3m

Agree0 Disagree0

I played against pennant a few times the guy and have spoken to him a few times when he's been in town and bumped into him h guy is a complete person dont want him would ruin the dressing room harmony

Agree0 Disagree0

I also work in stoke just down the road from the brit and none of the stoke fans have heard anything

Agree0 Disagree0

freeman is in talks with the sheep the person i got info off is a personal friend of his

Believable19 Unbelievable11

If he has made it clear he wants to go I say we should let him, yes he may be a good prospect but if he was that good why hasnt any prem club been interested like lascssales, all he would do is upset the dressing room

Agree1 Disagree0

Clough was on some site saying he was interested in him

Agree0 Disagree0

To be honest, it's pretty common knowledge that he's in talks with derby. Something has went off with him at the cg to make him feel unvalued. Would expect this to be fond by weekend

Simon

Agree0 Disagree0

It's called an agent

Irish duo gary mccourt & damain mcglade flying in on sat morn to finally sign! The belfast boys will sign long term deals at the club.

Believable24 Unbelievable39

Who are these people?

Which club do they play for? Google says McGlade plays hurling!

Very adventurous signings if that is the case

Agree1 Disagree0

Seen mccourt and mcglade. cracking players.sod thinking of future not just now. bring it on.coyr

Agree0 Disagree1

How old are they? Are they ready for 1st team action or youngsters? I can't find any thing about them on the web.

Agree0 Disagree0

Sure Shane long played hurling as well before he came to england 2 exciting prospects for the future

Agree0 Disagree0

McCourts 19 mcglades 18 their coming from the amateur league in belfast that's prob why theres not much on google about them a lot of clubs were interested forest are lucky they've got them

Agree0 Disagree0

What position do they play/ what sort of players are they?

Agree0 Disagree0

"to finally sign" oh yh cuz these two well known players have been in forest sights for years about time they signed.... hmmm

Agree1 Disagree0

Is your name Gary McCourt or Damian McGlade by any chance? Ed... is it the same bloke who wrote all these positive comments? {Ed034's Note - No mate

Agree0 Disagree0

I seem to remember another youngster from Ireland called Keane. If these pair are anything like him than happy days! I guess S'OD has one or two connections over the Irish Sea.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes, these two lads are being signed but loaned back out till January (to the clubs they will be signed from) and will join up with the youth/reserve team after te new year

Agree0 Disagree0

Would prefer Paddy Mccourt A.K.A Irish Messi but A.K.A sick note paddy...

Agree0 Disagree0

I play snooker on a Tuesday night and I got talking to a guy who played against us. He claims that he dates a girl who works for and is well connected at Forest.

He told me this:-

We have bid £4m for Jordan Rhodes.

Blackburn have also bid but he won't go there because of the way the club is managed.

Huddersfield are willing to sell for the right money but are reluctant to sell to a fellow Championship club.

Still some way to go to on that one but we are DEFO in for him.

We have also bid £3m for Nicky Maynard but this will depend on W Ham signing another striker, they have already missed out on Andy Carroll.

He also said that if we are in a challenging position in January there will also be a virtual blank cheque book to push for promotion. Till then the approach will be one of caution.

Its up to you if you believe this or not, in fact click the "Unbelievable" button as often as you like, but I am only telling you what I have been told tonight. The guy seemed genuine.

Believable27 Unbelievable48

If this is true I hope west ham get another striker because adding maynard to cox and blackstock would be an amazing front line.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think 4 million for Jordan Rhodes is way to much for a striker that is unproven at this level cant see him scoring that many this season! that will probably come back and haunt me!

Agree0 Disagree0

Dex Cox Maynard and Rhodes. I can see at least 60 goals between them lot!! It would be awesome

Agree0 Disagree0

Jordan Rhodes is not worth paying 4 million for he's unproven at championship level at there is too much hype surrounding him huddersfield are rubbing there hands together for a club with money to put a stupid bid in for him 1 million is a reasonable bid for this player not 4 million!

Agree0 Disagree0

Rhodes is a young hungry striker that has just scored 30+ goals, just been recognised at international level, still has a long time on his contract left and is in demand. Your never gonna get someone like that on the cheap!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Have you seen Rhodes? Obviously a good player but the young man is clearly not hungry. I think he may be pie mates with Mr Commons.

Agree0 Disagree0

It's 2012! 4 mill isn't what it was 5 years ago! Fletcher is valued at 12 mill and I promise you he won't score more than 20 in the championship! Rhodes is young and full of confidence!

Agree0 Disagree0

Every player is unique, therefore the value of the player is what the selling will accept and what any buying club will pay.

If Huddersfield don't need to sell him and value him at 4m, then that is his price. If the club choose to pay it then so be it. If they decide it's too much then again that is fair enough.

Agree0 Disagree1

Rhodes is a good player without a doubt, but I just don't get how much hype he's getting. Don't like Maynard as a player - too much ego in a dressing room of pretty level headed players. 3m also over what he's worth.

IlsonRed

Agree0 Disagree0

Cant see forest going for rhodes they have cox and dex now, there just in need of few wingers both sides, tom ince for me that will do me just fine well till jan anyway :} and few loans in if needed,

Agree0 Disagree0

No chance on ince swansea have approached blackpool for him but they value him at 4mil {Ed034's Note - its down to if they will pay it or not. if they do then no chance, if not and we will, then there is

Agree0 Disagree0

Unproven at this level?
I remember the same people saying that about lambert!

Agree0 Disagree0

What a load of rubbish a blank cheque will be available at xmas ! some people cant half dream financial fair play rules have gone out of the window then!

Agree0 Disagree0

Financial fair play dont come in till 2015 so they may be going for it now. Also if you are going to make rubbish of other peoples posts then I suggest you check your facts. {Ed034's Note - They partly come in this season

Agree0 Disagree0
