Just seen Paul Taylor (football journalist, forest fan) say there is no news regarding takeover or transfers coming to forest at the moment. So all rumours are false.

Believable8 Unbelievable9

Including this one?

Agree8 Disagree2

Paul taylor is a notts county fan

Agree5 Disagree4

Paul Taylor is usually the last to know about anything new re Forest have you not seen his columns!

Agree7 Disagree0

Ps. Paul Taylor is a Notts County fan and they hate saying anything positive about their Greater more Successful rivals across the River so bear that in mind.

Agree7 Disagree1

He wouldn't know if there were.He totally made up the Gunther bid from Swansea the other day.

Agree4 Disagree1

Well paul taylor knows everything doesn't he. he works for the evening post, the worst reporting newspaper on the planet. he does not know the ins and outs of the clubs and never will. some people will know what is happening, but not journalists who immediately tell everyone, hence why sites like this exist.

Agree4 Disagree1

He's a Notts County fan

Agree6 Disagree2

Lets face it no one is coming to forest until someone takes us over

Agree5 Disagree3

No..not true we mite not get taken over...and we do need at least a few defendersespecially after chambers goes, (hoping hard Lynch doenst)

Agree1 Disagree0

Newspapers and Journalists create 1% rumours and people always believe them

Agree0 Disagree2

Taylor is a County fan and a collasal stirrer that knows as much of the takeover as my dog does.

Agree0 Disagree0

After speaking to your dog, I can confirm he knows a lot more.

Agent 279

hope its true we are in talks with stevenages scott laird,deccent left back with an eye for goal,available on a free as well

Believable5 Unbelievable7

God we are so desperate if we're hoping for a Stevenage player that's been released.

Agree2 Disagree7

He wasn't released. He got offered another contract and turned it down. Get you facts right before putting negative comments up

Agree6 Disagree2

Sorry but he's been released because he didn't want to sign again at Stevenage.Whatever way you look at it he's been released.You his agent or something?

Agree1 Disagree2

So he has been released then hasent he? To be released means that you leave a club during or after a contract. This is after his contract has expired and after failing to agree a new deal he has chosen to be released from the club!

Agree0 Disagree0

The cheek of that 2nd poster,we were very close to being a league one club ourselves,scott laird is an attacking left back who has turned down a new contract,he wasnt released

Agree1 Disagree0

You mean like mccleary was released?? He got offered a contract and decided not to accept it. That isn't being released, that's deciding yourself to release the club.
An attacking forward with an eye for goal....could be our new psyhco ;/) lol

Agree2 Disagree0

Just to clarify - you're released from a club if they don't want you. Did we 'release' GMac? No, we offered him a contract and he turned it down to go somewhere with better prospects (supposedly). Same for this lad - he wants to play at a higher level so has allowed his contract to run out and refused to sign a new one. NOT released, and NOT a reject. Stevenage can't force him to sign a contract but they've tried to. They want him.
Right, hopefully now we can get on and avoid these stupid arguments.

Agree3 Disagree0

He's young and looked accomplished against Tottenham in the fa cup
I think he suits the criteria for our vacant left back spot

Agree1 Disagree0

Excellent player imo, has a bullet of a shot on him and looked good in League 1, give him a year or two and he'd probably be a solid Championship player. I doubt he'll go to else though.

Agree0 Disagree0

Forest (and others) keen on Dulwich Hamlet teenage striker Omarr Lawson....if it comes off one for the future...unlikely to be in 1st team action next year

Believable6 Unbelievable3

How is he one for the future when he has been on trial at portsmouth and they thought he was not worth paying a little bit of money for

Agree2 Disagree1

Miller and Dex upfront next season, both fully fit and firing, would terrorise oppo defences.

Agree8 Disagree5

We had grant lot fr how long, let him go and now look at him.
We had wright-Phillips and let him go.
Means nothing

Agree4 Disagree2

If you think like that then i will, we cannot sell mcgoldrick because he will become a prem striker.

Agree2 Disagree4

Childesh comment.
I'm just saying just because a player doesn't catch the eye of one manager, doesn't mean he won't another. Look at mccleary

Agree2 Disagree1

Just because Pompey let him go that doesn't mean he's a bad player. Seeing as they were willing to sign Benjani on crazy wages I would take their judgement with a pinch of salt

Agree0 Disagree0

Miller fully fit....I would be laughing ...but I find little to laugh about with this 'millstone' around our neck!!

Agree3 Disagree4

Its not aboout fitness with miller...he just needs a large roman candle inserted in his ar*e and told to try harder

Agree0 Disagree1

Miller has never had an AMAZING season so i don't know why we bought him.
Do we really need another striker atm?

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2012 14:16:11
Intresting news regarding ish miller. He has been in extensive trainging as he wants to prove himself next season and score 30 goals. don't shoot the messenger just the ball.

Believable7 Unbelievable4

He may be unfashionable but like it or not he will be one of our main strikers next year.

He should look at Joel lynch for an example of a guy who went from hate figure to hero.

Agree6 Disagree1

He can't do that much training, he would get injured for 6 months

Agree4 Disagree0

30 goals ? prob 15. ishmael is good when he is on form and i hope he has been training hard we need him .

Agree7 Disagree1

Look a good player when he first signed and I'm hoping his lack of form was down to injuries.

Agree4 Disagree1

Remember 3-1 birmingham at home, after a stale first half on both sides. first opp camp kicked it long and he just popped it in.

hes obviously got a striker brain, but needs to prove himself.

Agree1 Disagree1

Could be a good partnership and miller can drop onto the wing if needed. Will be interesting to see how the team will line up next year. I'd like to see

Gunter - Lynch - Higginbotham - Shorey
McGugan - Majewski - Reid
Miller - Blackstock

Foreter (St.Pats)

This is providing we miss out on guediora, who would slot in instead of mcgugan

Agree1 Disagree9

Can only have 5 subs.

Agree7 Disagree1

Morgan? As in Wes Morgan? Hate to break it to you, but he has left.

Agree4 Disagree10

I think he meant the young midfielder david morgan? from the youth?

Agree10 Disagree0

Hasn't Joe lewis gone to cardiff?

Agree0 Disagree1

Hate to break it to you too - but we got a superb talent in David Morgan at the Academy....

Agree9 Disagree0

Yes i mean David Morgan, apprentice of the year, recently called up to the U21 Northern Ireland squad, and only 17 years old.

And it would seem the league is reverting back to seven subs (Ed-do you know if this is correct) {Ed001's Note - I don't know, I know the Championship clubs are trying to bring it back. It is a bizarre thing to do, all those clubs saying they could only field 5 should try looking at their youth team if you ask me! If they can't put a couple of youngsters on the bench, there is something seriously wrong with the club.}

Agree3 Disagree0

Miller has the worst first touch, it's like his boots have springs around them the way it bounces off 30 goals he has only scored about 10 his whole career

Agree1 Disagree3

I'm confused? Shorey?

Agree2 Disagree0

I suppose the poster was looking at the fact he has been released by the baggies and suggestng he might be a useful addition. Decent player would bring bags of experience but would probably be too expensive. He may also have other suitors that look a little more attractive than us.

Agree1 Disagree0

Shorey is on a free now. It's highly unlikely he'll join us, but not impossible. Plus, he has history with us and we all loved him when he was on loan.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 May 2012 11:51:55
Does anyone think that the longer it goes with us not signing anyone that this could be good on the takeover front. Or do we think that Forest are being Slow out of the blocks as usual. {Ed007's Note - Slow out the blocks? Maybe show some patience mate, look at the date.}

Believable2 Unbelievable3

I have to agree with the editor. the season didn't finish all that long ago. it just feels like a long time 'cause everything's in limbo atm

Agree2 Disagree0

As usual too usual miss the opportunities...come on guys we all want sucess and to hold onto players like Lynch...we dont want leftovers at the end of the summer...please get the takeover(if there is to be one) sorted...we just need to know how the land lies

Agree1 Disagree2

Free agents available usually at start of june soletssee who becomes available

Agree1 Disagree0

Patience Patience Patience

Agree2 Disagree0

Patience with so many players out of contract and anyone decent gettting snapped up now...! Less patronising more thought.

Agree0 Disagree0

My brother's girlfriend works for a company who are currently printing the new Forest shirts. She is not directly involved with this contract but knows they are made by Macron. The sponsor has been kept very quiet as it was leaked out when they did the Leeds shirts, though it is not Victor Chandler.

Believable1 Unbelievable10

Are you kidding me another shirt I will not buy

Agree3 Disagree1

Macron make some of the most cheap and nasty kits I've ever seen. If this comes off, which I doubt, I will not be buying another shirt or any Macron products from the club.

Agree5 Disagree1

Adidas' contracts with Liverpool and Derby have finished and they have signed for Sunderland and Forest. Next seasons kits will be Adidas not Macron, and Derby will have Kappa.

Agree9 Disagree1

What is your source? Why would Adidas finishing with Liverpool and Derby (if that is even true) have any bearing on whether or not they did Forest's shirts? I'm afraid it is Macron.

Agree0 Disagree3

Crappa!? Haha I'd settle for fruit of the loom!

Agree0 Disagree1

I can confirm forest kit will be adidas but not sure if vc still as sponsor.

Agree2 Disagree1

Sorry boys, but i think you'll find its going to be made by Pony. and the sponsor has been confirmed as skol lager

Agree1 Disagree1

Wikipedia says Adidas will be kit sponsor for 2012-2013 season - make what you want of that.

Agree0 Disagree0

The truth is that liverpool has definitely been rejected a new contact by addidas as they already have a new kit out without addidas. As for derby, i hope so and i hope they get the worst brand ever as thats all they deserve. On the forest side ANYONE can change wikipedia, so do not believe anything that says.

I've heard that the new owners will be revealed next week and they also own Victoria centre and broard marsh centre looking to heavily invest and float us on the stock market I. belive the company is called central shopping centres formerly the liberty group looking aswell to redevelopment and obviously new stadium - arena and inter link all 3 and the surrounding areas ie meadows , wilford. Clifton also creating more jobs in the area and good for the economy the reason I know this my friend of a friend is very good friends with counciler john Collins nottingham county council

Believable2 Unbelievable8

If you're going to make up a rumour then do some better research, The group that owns Broadmarsh is called Capital Shopping Centres Group plc.
Capital Shopping Centres Group plc is a United Kingdom-based Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT), largely focused on shopping centre management and development. Formerly named Liberty International plc, it changed its name to that of its major subsidiary in May 2010 after demerging its Capital & Counties business unit as a stand-alone company. In addition to 13 shopping centres in the U.K., Capital Shopping Centres Group also owns the California-based subsidiary Equity One. The firm's shares are listed on the London and Johannesburg stock exchanges and it is a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index.

Agree2 Disagree1

That is one hell of a rumour. Nearly too good to be true but......who could have possibly dreamt that one.

Hope there is some substance to it.

Not weed!


Agree4 Disagree2

We have been floated on the stock market before and didn't work out to well. I cannot see investors buying into that again.

Agree1 Disagree0

Isn't John Collins a City councillor ?

Agree1 Disagree0

Capital shopping centres have just brought the corner house on foreman street and are looking to sponsor forest in some way. this was done last week it as been in the papers.
