Agree0 Disagree0

Are you sure you arent getting carney mixed up with crainey? david carney is no longer listed on the official blackpool website, and neither sky or the bbc have reported him signing a new contract so i would love to know where you found out dave carney had re-signed to blackpool?

Nick the squaddie

Agree0 Disagree0

Sure you lads aren't thinking about stephen Crainey the left back who's just resigned?..Carneys a different player

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm Not the origianl poster, But stephen crainey signed a new contract on July 8th not David Carney, who was released on 25th May 2011 along with 10 other players and is still without a club.

Agree0 Disagree0

That was Steven crainey who signed a new blackpool deal, this one could be true...

Agree0 Disagree0

And his name is Stephen crainey can't even get the right name

Agree0 Disagree0

David carney is an austalian international left back who was released by Blackpool he he has 28 caps for Australia which is good experience {Ed001's Note - he was a winger for Sheff Utd before that.}

Collins John back in the frame I don't care, sign him up Well excited about this one. Told his old club he is to join us. Cant wait

Believable5 Unbelievable10

Why is it that Forest are continually being linked with players with bad attitudes? Colins John, Giles Barnes, David Goodwillie... We don't need these types of player at our club. This is rubbish

Agree0 Disagree0

Collins John is dreadful, he's scored 20 goals in 10 years, lets hope he's not signing

Agree0 Disagree0

In England, 22 goals in 111 apps over 4 1/2 years.

Agree0 Disagree0

Agreed he is crap

Agree0 Disagree0

On collins wikipedia page it says hes in portugal with us on a trial

He signed for Blackpool on the 8th July... Looks like we've missed another one.

To the post above. That would be Stephen Crainey that signed a new deal, not David Carney.

Agree0 Disagree0

That was crainey that re-signed on the 8th july Carney was released on the 25th May and has not signed for anyone yet not sure if he will be a good signing or not as i have never seen him play but he is still available

nick the squaddie

Maynard not going anywhere and is willing to stay at bristol

Believable10 Unbelievable8

Well durr

Agree0 Disagree0

I think we're all fairly sure maynard wont be joining us, and for the prices being banded about its not that bad a thing either

Agree0 Disagree0

Then why hasn't he signed the contract yet ??

Agree0 Disagree0

Becuase he's gonna run it down for a better deal when we or west ham are in the prem.

Agree0 Disagree0

Because he still has a year left? :P

There has been a lot of activity at the City Ground today A lot of the rumours are true. My friend works at the Evening Post and he has assured me Forest will be unveiling Greening, Routledge and Moussi either tomorrow or Tuesday. He also told me Forest are after Hulse and Leon Best. Zenden will be returning to Holland, Barnes has attitude problems and isn't fancied by McClaren. Keith Andrews, Sol Campbell and Nicky Shorey have all been approached but wages big stumbling block. Arthur plays hardball with the agents, and always begins by halving players wage demands - this has mean't we have missed out on so much talent McClaren is looking for experience and is looking at players released by prem clubs. My mate reckons Pascal Chimbonda, George Boetang and Emanuel Thomas are next on the list if other targets miss out. Truth is Forest are desperate for bodies and the dads army will do

Believable12 Unbelievable16

Hang on a minute, there is a nasty smell about this rumour.Yep b*******.

Agree0 Disagree0

Everyone implying older players is a bad thing... are people forgetting that we have a quality young squad, we dont need young stars for the future, the 'dad's army' could be exactly what we need. look how we've bottled it the last 2 seasons, some old hands in the team would help against the young lads losing their heads

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jul 2011 15:47:23
i have just driven past the city ground and you cannot get anywhere near the gates or club shop something definitly happening. we would never have security guards on a sunday, just been told in talks with rob hulse good or bad news ??

Believable8 Unbelievable15

Or maybe the team just got back from portugal

Agree0 Disagree0

It's the cricket you plaoker they use the car park at the CG other than that noting going on

Agree0 Disagree0

Genius Or maybe it's because Notts are playing at Trent Bridge and the car park is used at the City Ground. Best rumour ever

Agree0 Disagree0

There is no one near the city ground its a lie, they wouldn't be security guards if we was signing Rob Hulse

Agree0 Disagree0

Car park being used for cricket

Agree0 Disagree0

Ive never seen them use the anything of forests while cricket is on im going down to take alook an see for my self

Agree0 Disagree0

Tricky one considering it's rained nearly all day the cricket would be called off but you never know i understand both sides hopefully it's a signing, but tommorow is supposed to be the day greening, moussi, and wayne routledge and perhaps a mystery signing who knows????

Agree0 Disagree0

Just been down an there is naff all going on the gates are open but thats it ....

Agree0 Disagree0

Rob Hulse is no good for us as we need pace not donkeys.

Agree0 Disagree0

Its for peter whittingham forest had a bid of 2.8 million accepted this morning

Agree0 Disagree0

It was sheikh mansour popping down to lend doughty 35 Million to sign Ronaldo

Agree0 Disagree0

no players will be leaving now just additions, 3 strikers will come in to replace adebola tyson earnshaw and boyd thats y so many strikers as mcclaren does not rate tudgay and mccgoldrick but is said to hold garner and findley in very high regards. we also now no dexter wont be fully fit until maybe next feb, and when i he i expect he would go out on loan to get some game time.

Believable11 Unbelievable5

No way we getting 3 strikers. 1 tops. Garner is liked by SMc so with Garner, Dids, Tugs, Findley, and 1 extra we have 5...plus Dex will be back round xmas.

Agree0 Disagree0

No way can u loose 4 and get 1 in mate use your brain for once

Agree0 Disagree0

Just wondering other than Earnshaw and Boyd was never ours anyway, if we are really going to miss Adebola and Tyson. The former to old, the later was never that good. Believe they only managed five goals between them.


We still need a 20+ goal striker, Earnshaw was not even close to 20 goals, even if he had converted some of the chances he missed, he would have struggled to make 20 goals.

Maynard is not a 20+ striker either.

Agree0 Disagree0

Wayne routledge saga - a bid was accepted from Leicester and forest and the player agreed to both clubs as his stated his was unwilling to move to wales. Leicester now have to many players and need to ship at least 8 out before they bring in any one else. Everything was agreed with forest and I think it will be announced tomorrow that it's where routledge will be but the hold up with them has been of our desire to get Lewis mcgugan, a player who would take a lot more to buy than what we arebwilling to pay. Also forest have said they are not going to sell there best stars so we have no chance especially when they turned down 4 mill from stoke and wolves. Routledge should be announced as a forestbplayer tomorrow

Nottingham Forest are to sign 17 year old sensation Liam Bayley on a two year deal from manchester United. Sir Alex Ferguson would like former number two Steve McClaren to nurture the talent and hopefully offer him some first team action. He is described by ferguson as a pacey natural finisher, with a screaming left foot.

It's sunday. The guardian is not published on a sunday.

Routledge and Greening have signed

Its going to be a busy week or so down at te CG

Believable14 Unbelievable8

No they Haven't

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes they have, saw ND at the city ground last night with a big smile on his face. He even offered me a season ticket for half price as some fans have returned their ticket in disgust to lack of signings.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why Wud he offer u a season ticket for half price

Agree0 Disagree0

LOL, bulls**t

Agree0 Disagree0

Repeat of last sunday possibley?
everyone says we are signing players and it would suprise me if we didn't again
dejavu much...

Agree0 Disagree0

He owns the club you soft lad, he's hardly going to tell a 'fan' that season tickets have been returned, and to offer you one for half price That would wazz off about 13k of people who have renued or brought season tickets.
Have fun at school tomorro dreaming up these stories.

Agree0 Disagree0

Nowt else better to do you saddo

Agree0 Disagree0

Believe nothing until they are on the
OS with shirt etc etc

Something happening today at city ground, wasn't allowed near the gates and people going in and out a lot to say its a sunday

Believable9 Unbelievable9

Maybe something to do with the fact that Notts were playing at Trent Bridge?

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jul 2011 14:22:09

Sky reporting Mcclaren wants control of signings. He didn't have it at Wolfsburg and didn't like that situation. Must be getting as frustrated as we are with lack of signings. Hope that will change tomorrow. Lincoln Rob.

Believable16 Unbelievable4

This is old news coming from the mirror. lazy poor journalism.

Agree0 Disagree0

They're 15 years behind with the chairman's name; they've probably dug up a billy story from 2 years ago and put schteve's name in it.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why on earth do we need David Pleat. Why have a manager and then let a tit like him choose the players we bring in. Total joke.

Agree0 Disagree0

Pleat is a glorified scout mate do your research he is not even full time employee and he works on comision

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would they give him controll of the transfers ......He might sign someone (Sarcasm)

Agree0 Disagree0

It was pleat that brought in anderson gunter and raddi the players billy brought where mckenna and mcgoldrick the board wanted sinclair but billy said no he was to young and he went to swansea instead

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jul 2011 12:56:14
Transfer update - players to come in next week -
Greening
Routledge
Ambrose
Hulse
Sharp
Goodwillie
Kane Ferdinand - we have also made an inquiry into the availability of Anton Ferdinand, more likely loan.
Michael turner inquiry made.
Moussi to resign.
Still chasing shorey if a deal cannot be done we have looked at crainey who is on a free and also van arnholt and Bertrand both signed new deals but only one will be Coles back up so one will go out on season loan.
From info I have can see why mr Arthur was in Sunderland. Also perch still has a house in ruddington and comes back regularly, I dont think it's anything to do with coming back home permanently.

Believable14 Unbelievable16

Why so many strijers
we have Tudgay, Findlay and Blackstock(+Garner and mcgoldrick))

Agree0 Disagree0

Crainey signed a new deal with Blackpool

Agree0 Disagree0

Wot a lazy post picking up old news, as for ambrose I threw that in yesterday 1505, get ur own scoops

Agree0 Disagree0

"Why so many strijers
we have Tudgay, Findlay and Blackstock(+Garner and mcgoldrick))"

Findley - untested at this level
Blackstock - out until December
Garner - should be given a chance
Tudgay - hit and miss
McGoldrick - goal shy

Agree0 Disagree0

Give McGoldie time, we never bloody played him and when we did he (usually) played well. Pair him or Garner with Findley and see what happens...

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jul 2011 12:18:36
Forest will sign tommorow Greening and Routledge, Moussi will also re-sign on a two year contract and see if we can get promoted. However there is also news that an unknown striker will sign, is it Collins John, Billy Sharp, Nicky Maynard or someone else. That deal may take until Wednesday. The news on Ricardo Fuller is unlikely but David Healy or Jo could be true.

Believable9 Unbelievable10

We are taking greening, routledge, Billy sharp blah blah blah blah. Nobody knows who's signing so let's stop talking s**t shall we and just wait and see :)

Agree0 Disagree0

Fuller unlikely but jo could be true... what a crazy world we live in

Agree0 Disagree0

Healy on contract with Rangers till end of next season

17 Jul 2011 11:58:40
Nottingham forest are set to annocece 3 news signings on monday. Guy Mossi to sign 3 year deal, Greening to sign 4 600,000 on 2 year deal and the 3rd signing is thought to be routledge but reports are that it could be a signing not on the radar. i for 1 will just b happy to see players in at last, and lets hope they are the first of meny. REDMAN

Believable7 Unbelievable7

Are they? Or is that just wot u dreamt?

Agree0 Disagree0

Your English is terrible. Are you saying Greening will sign for 4.6mil on a 2 year deal?

We are taking Eric Djemba djemba on trial when squad returns from Portugal he contract with his current club expired yesterday. I for one think this would be a bad move.

Believable7 Unbelievable13

Why bring him in?? He's only scored a handful of goal in the last 6 years since being at Man Utd - see wiki.

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't have to score goals to be good

Agree0 Disagree0

All contracts expire on 30th June

Agree0 Disagree0

"Why bring him in? He's only scored a handful of goal in the last 6 years since being at Man Utd - see wiki."

Good ol' reliable wikipedia. My heart sinks whenever I see people use that as a source

Agree0 Disagree0

Martha thinks its two players for the price of one which is why he is being touted

Agree0 Disagree0

Ha ha good one Martha love it

Agree0 Disagree0

His contract with Odense expires in the summer of 2012

Agree0 Disagree0

This rumour is hardly worth the label 'rumour': facts are all wrong. Eric's contract with Odense BK runs another year, Odense played their first league match in Denmark yesterday with Eric playing the last 20 mins (he's recovering from minor surgery), and the club's pre-season training has taken place in Denmark. What a joke.

James Perch at the village hotel a few hours ago at a party with his missus, dont know what newcastle are doing pre-season, his missus is from trowell so could just be a coincidence.

Believable4 Unbelievable10

Agree0 Disagree0
