Bolton are in for Jay Spearing on a season long loan from Liverpool. Apparently he is trying to get back in with Liverpool and will leave his decision until the transfer window is about to close.

Believable13 Unbelievable4

If he's not in their 25 man squad what choice does he have?

I hope we don't get him though i think we have too many central midfielders

Agree0 Disagree0

Thank god. I really don't want jay spearing he's shocking

Agree1 Disagree0

A lot of speculation up here that Sunderland are interested too.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yer that's why he plays for Liverpool cos he's so bad ,!

Agree0 Disagree0

Apparently he's not up to liverpool's standards.

He must be pretty shocking...

twitter says that there is nothing in the tom ince rumours, however a Kuwaiti journalist who has been spot on with all the other signings has heard Adam hammills name mentioned but is waiting for it to become official.

Believable11 Unbelievable6

Even SOD has said that Thomas Ince is not a target so I think we can scrub that one off the rumour mill

Forest to make a bid for Nicky Maynard

Believable12 Unbelievable27

Proven goal scorer in the championship

Forest close in on Ince {Ed034's Note - Hope so

Believable11 Unbelievable22

I'd give you the benefit of the doubt if this rumour wasn't late on a Sunday night! {Ed034's Note - What does it matter what time of the day it is?? Newspapers articles start getting spread around at this time. Plus who says he/she fount this out and the first port of call was to come on here??? I'm not saying its true, but why have a dig?? It's a rumours site.

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope upon hope Ince can be brought in, that would underline the intent and ambition of the new owners. I for one believe a signing of this magnitude is not out of the question. Maybe he along with his Father and mentor see forest as the right step in his career.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes please!

Agree0 Disagree0

You talking about ince at blackpool? who just scored 2 goals yesterday?

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree ince would be a great sighning just another mcleary wish we kept him lol

Agree1 Disagree0

Sorry but ince would be far better than gmac people seem to forget he only had half a good season if he wasn't on a free there is no way he would have been in the prem right now (I'm expecting to be slated but it's true)

Agree0 Disagree0

Gmac only had a gd half of a season because he was out injured for the other half! He is a great player and proved that on his prem debut yesterday coming on as a sub and was the best player on the pitch! But I do think Ince will be a great signing just because he scored 2 goals yesterday doesn't mean he won't leave, money buys u anything in football

Agree0 Disagree0

SOD has already rubbished Ince rumours and doubt blackpool would let him go having scored 2 goals the other day anyway!

Agree0 Disagree0

No chance with Ince now....Holloway will have just added another 2million to his price, especially after the two goals he scored at the weekend!

Agree0 Disagree0

Mcleary was a decent winger but never got a decent run in the side until the 2nd half of last season. Made a a big impact when he came on for Reading on Sat and won a penalty, not a bad start for him there:)

Agree0 Disagree0

Fawaz has said its not Ince

Agree0 Disagree0

Its not ince read fawaz lips

Chelsea Fc,Arsenal Fc and Tottenham Fc Intrested in Lascellas {Ed034's Note - I'm glad he's signed a new contract. It'll guarantee a good price if we do end up selling him

Believable8 Unbelievable12

Hopefully we can keep him for a few years, especially now with ayala being injured he will be needed!

Agree0 Disagree0

What is this? yea top clubs r intrested in him because hes a top world class player but he signed a 4yr contact he aint going no where! this aint a transfer rumour!! {Ed034's Note - It is a rumour as they are interested. First mean he's going though

Agree0 Disagree0

Must be decent with all the attention hes getting from big clubs. I hope SOD will give him a chance this season.

Agree0 Disagree0

If lascelles is this good, why doesn't he ever get selected? Surely a potential international/prem regular could get into a champ team at his age? He's been on the peripheral for at least 18 months without breaking into a (let's face it up to this season) mediocre champ team? {Ed034's Note - Last season was too risky to put a teenager in and the young lad needs a run of games to learn from his mistakes. Better off elsewhere going that, than in the garibaldi. It's harder to bring in a young centre back. If an 18 year old winger does a mistake, the likelyhood is it won't cause too much damage. If an 18 year old centre back does, the likelyhood is it'll give a goal away. He's obviously good or spurs and arsenal wouldn't have bidded for him

Agree0 Disagree0

Nothing in the news about arsenal chelsea & tottenham being intested in Jamaal. I say that this is purely false info. Jamaal ain't going anywhere as he is on a new contract. He has also mentioned that he wants to be involved in helping Nottingham Forest go to the prem.

Agree0 Disagree0

i have heard forest might be sending chris cohen out on loan in order for him to get some games under his belt and regain match fitness, no idea where he will be going but I've heard its happening {Ed034's Note - Be a good Idea.

Believable8 Unbelievable19

No need to give him to someone else play in the reserves! Surely we don't want to upset our loyal players?

Agree0 Disagree0

He will get some games in a forest shirt,without doubt one of forests best players. blackstock had a bad injury but came back strong,cohen will do likewise

Agree0 Disagree0

A good idea? Disagree. Why would you have him go and train at another club, with different coaches, physios, etc? Less control over his recovery. Imagine if he goes on loan to some League 1 club and gets kicked in training and out for another 6 months. {Ed034's Note - So why do other clubs, including prem, do this??? It'll give him more minutes on the pitch than we can. There's only so much training you can do. He needs match time

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree with ed, he has had a huge injury and we can not get him as many games as he needs. kightly went out on loan after he came back from a serious injury and now look at him, ended up one of wolves best players again and earned himself a move to stoke. {Ed034's Note - As did Ramsey.

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree send him out on a 6 month loan maybe to get match practice and fitness back. Its unfortunate because a couple of years ago prior to injuries he was awesome. Need to get him back on form and i think he will struggle to get game time especially if we sign 1 or 2 wingers. {Ed034's Note - I don't think 6 month but a 3 month would do him the world of good and then asset if he needs more after that

Agree0 Disagree0

Forest have put in a 5mil bid for sotris ninis

Believable10 Unbelievable14

Is that the same guy who has signed for Parma on July 17th 2012 ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Didn't he sign for Parma this summer ?

Agree0 Disagree0

He will never come to Forest, he is far too good for the championship, he would easily make the squad for any of the top 6 in the prem.

Agree0 Disagree1

19 Aug 2012 19:37:58
We are interested in yet another 3 players {Ed034's Note - Any idea who mate??

Believable12 Unbelievable4

Bullard, ince,maynard {Ed034's Note - I'd have thought at least one would be a defender

Agree0 Disagree0

Josh mceachran no clue who else

bridgeford stand crew

Agree1 Disagree1

Sharp hammill/ince and elokobi

Agree0 Disagree0

Forest to sign coppinger or ryan hall..... wayne routlledge off the radar.

Agree0 Disagree0

Sharp
Hall
Defender

Agree0 Disagree0

* Jay Spearing according to lots of forums
* Adam Hamill
* George Elokobi

I've heard things about maynard, sharp and coppinger also but I'm sure unsure about these

Agree0 Disagree0

Hammil would be decent, was awesome at Barnsley. Dont see the sense in signing Spearing as we have plenty of central midfielders. A big no thanks to Bullard.

Agree0 Disagree0

A winger according to fawaz who is in talks and supposably they are trying to sign him before huddersfield also they are talking to 1 more

Forest interested in Josh McEachrani

Believable8 Unbelievable24

The person who has signed season loan at Blackburn {Ed034's Note - Having looked on bbc sport site, ssn site and Blackburn rovers site, no he doesn't mean the one that's signed for them. That'll be because there isn't one

Agree0 Disagree0

Have got enough cm.dont just post bacause you have just read he wants a loan move.

Agree0 Disagree0

Wasn't he on loan at prem club last year ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would we want another midfielder

Agree0 Disagree0

No better than what we've got tbh yoooooooooo reeeeeeeeeds

Forest have made a bid of 3 million for billy sharp....sod a big fan

Believable15 Unbelievable27

The guy thats playing for Southampton against Man City right now? We have no chance.

NFFC#1

Agree0 Disagree0

Billy Sharp playing today at Manchester City so no bid

Agree0 Disagree0

Personally I doubt it's happening too but just because he's playing doesn't mean we haven't bid. Everyone's got a price and if they sign Gaston Ramirez, he might find his chances limited.

However I find it unlikely that we could match his wages (probably got a nice bump with promotion) and he'd want to prove himself in the Premiership too.

Agree0 Disagree0

He came of the bench earlier so no chance half of all these rumours i think people make up!

Agree0 Disagree0

If you call a 4 minute playing,he was on the bench came on in last 4 mins...after losing today southampton want to raise cash for a forward from italy.sharp on his way to forest

Agree0 Disagree0

To the fellow red questioning sharps wages we signed cox who was also on premiership wages...need i say more

Agree0 Disagree0

Put your handbags away. There is absolutely no way sharp will be coming to us! And Gaston Ramirez isn't a striker he's a creative midfielder so that won't affect Sharp one bit. We have 7 strikers on the books so why all the rumours about getting an eighth??

Some common sense would be go well here

Agree0 Disagree0

Rumour on the Saints Rumour site, that Billy Sharp is going to Nottingham Forest on 1 years loan? As a Saints fan I can't see it myself, he had a brilliant pre season. But this is football and strange things happen!

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2012 17:40:52
Nottingham Forest are interested in Thomas Ince {Ed034's Note - Lol this rumours been out for seven days now mate

Believable13 Unbelievable8

19 Aug 2012 16:40:33
I deleted a post by mistake asking about if there's anything in the rumour on ssn about Reid being at Watford.
Anything that is put on the fans rumours page in ssn, 99 times out of 100 is bull. This is definatly one if the 99, so please do not worry, reidy is acres and still will be a red come the end of the season
Ed 34

Believable3 Unbelievable13

Reidy is acres? I thought he'd lost weight. {Ed034's Note - lol stupid ipad. meant to say 'is a red'

Agree0 Disagree0

Goalkeeper Paul Smith to Southend according to sky sports news on mobile app. {Ed034's Note - Good luck to him

Believable7 Unbelievable2

ED, Do u think it might be any part of a deal for the winger we are interested in?. {Ed034's Note - Mo because smith was a free agent

Agree0 Disagree0

Good luck smithy, I always thought he was an half decent goalkeeper. Hope it works out well for him

Agree0 Disagree0

I like it when we get players from Southend,they usually do quite well at Forest.

Agree0 Disagree0

! {Ed034's Note - To the poster who asked 'who cares?'. Why bother commenting if your not interested in the post???

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2012 12:39:44
Forest still have business to do they are trying to steal a march on the EPL clubs tying up deals with Zaha and Ince. They are also looking at another defender Elliot Ward of Norwich is one of 2 they have inquired after and finally they are still monitoring the situation at Soton as they are still keen to bring in Billy Sharp

Believable24 Unbelievable19

Would love Ince at Forest but i think it will be to good to be true. I reckon Zaha would be a quality signing maybe for around 3 million. Think more likely we will sign Hammil and Spearing.

Agree0 Disagree0

It looks like you have copied and pasted this from somewhere. If so where was it? If not you seem to have typed like it is from a newspaper or other media to make a dubious rumour look more believable. Which one is it?

Agree0 Disagree0

Can't see ward coming in, he is a centre Back and SOD says he wants a LB but zaha would be good

Agree0 Disagree0

I can't see any of those happening

Agree0 Disagree0

All Southampton need to do is buy a striker and Billy Sharp is ours !!

Agree0 Disagree0

Hull City are after Guy Moussi for £300,000

Believable11 Unbelievable15

Not a big fan of Moussi really too clumsy and inconsistant. gillet plays in his role and if he plays like he did against Bristol this season Moussi wont get a sniff.

Agree0 Disagree0

Fully agree plus injury prone. Steve McClaren needs shooting for persuading him to stay however at least if he does go this time around we can command a fee. {Ed034's Note - I think hes a good dm, but if spearing comes in, wouldn't be sad to see him go

Agree0 Disagree0

Would be no great loss,he gives the ball away to easy for a midfielder and always prone to do it in our last third of the field.

Agree0 Disagree0

Cant believe at one stage Everton wanted to sign him! Hugely overated we need to ship him off ASAP along with Greening,Findley, Mcgoldrick, Miller and Derbyshire.

Agree0 Disagree0

I like Guy he has a good team spirit but he has short comings with his passing ability and injuries.

I think a value of 500-750 would be more reasonable

Agree0 Disagree0

Moussi is the best defensive midfielder we ve got, and one of the best in the league, i would hate to see him go and replace him with Spearing

Agree0 Disagree0

Let's not forget what moussi did for us in the Davies era pre injury, he was pivotal to our promotion campaign and when he got injured things went wrong for us. Like many he didn't perform last season but he's been a good servant and I'd only want him to go should we bring in the likes of spearing!

Simon {Ed034's Note - Great post

Agree0 Disagree0

Can be a bit erratic but he's a battler and gives us some strength in midfield. Personally I will miss him if he leaves!

Agree0 Disagree0

Moussi one of the best defensive midfielders in the league! your having a laugh. His touch, ball control and passing are awfull he needs to be sold no question.

Agree0 Disagree0

The guys worth more than 300 k to us thats wud be poor business, hes one of oure best defensive midfilders wen hes on form

Agree0 Disagree0

We paid about 300k for him and he still hasn't learned to kick a ball straight.

we're top heavy in that position and he only plays well for 1 game in every 10...... when he isn't injured. moussi looks like the odd man out and he doesn't earn his salary, logical choice to get rid.

Agree0 Disagree0

Swansea City after Dexter Blackstock for £3.5 million.

Believable6 Unbelievable30

Hope this aint true but cnt see 3 .5 million when he only has a year left.hpfully we will tie him dwn to a long contract asap mint striker great player shud b captain in my eyes.flash red

Agree0 Disagree0

Sell sell sell

Agree0 Disagree2

Sell sell sell are you real this guy has kept us up single handedly get a grip {Ed034's Note - I wouldn't want to sell I'm, but it wasn't single handed. He played a massive part though

Agree0 Disagree0

He wants to sign a new contract

Agree0 Disagree0

Surely we don't need to sell sell sell anymore? I hear he wants to stay and I think he'll buck the recent trend and sign a new deal!

Agree0 Disagree0

Instead of selling Blackstock sell people Luke Derbyshire and mcgoldrick and look to bring in a quality striker like billy sharp {Ed034's Note - You can't sell players if clubs are not bidding for them. It's not soccer manager

Agree0 Disagree0

Would be devestated if he got sold! cant see these rumours being true anyway. Will play a major role this season if he stays fit.

Agree0 Disagree0

If he wants to sign he would of had a new deal rapped up by now. {Ed034's Note - The new owners have only been in a month. Their priority is bringing in new players. When the window is shut, we'll then concentrate on new contracts. They wanted lascelles sorted ASAP because of what happened with bamford and to also send a positive message to us fans

Agree0 Disagree0

Happy for him to stay but 3.5m is good money for him

wim

Agree1 Disagree0

The club have already stated that they are looking at contract renewals already for the players already there.

Agree0 Disagree0

The problem is if we sell him who will we replace him with? most clubs have wrapped up there pre season business and will be reluctant to sell their best players. Forest have shown a lot of faith in Dexter whereas other clubs may have wrote him off. He has a point to prove this season and if we keep him i can see him scoring plenty of goals. {Ed034's Note - Maynard, Rhodes, beckford, hooper, bechio

Agree0 Disagree0

Maynard is the only player from that list who i think we could sign and i would take Blackstock over Maynard any day. {Ed034's Note - I'm not saying I want him to go btw. I'm just linking out there are options if he goes

Agree0 Disagree0

There is also sharp was only on bench today also if saints sign another striker can't see sharp getting a look in (although I hope dex stays im a big fan and he seems to have upped his work rate)

Agree0 Disagree0

3.5m is a lot for a player who will not score more than 15 goals a season. Would be tempted but I hear he wants to stay and we dont need to sell.

Agree0 Disagree0

Difficult to justify not selling for that kind of money.

i like dex but 3.5m buys a much better striker than him.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2012 09:02:40
I think we can expect a few more ins and outs in next 12 days. The spearing rumour seems to be everywhere now from lfc and nffc sites. I've asked myself all night how he fits but it seems we may be ready to offload moussi going by today's press where hull are interested.it also could be months before Cohen is at a decent level. couple of top journos I follow still think the ince deal is on also. Still want a defender too don't we!! Exciting next few days

Simon

Believable8 Unbelievable5

Can you tell me the journs you follow? And what deal for ince we have?

Agree0 Disagree0

Yea SOD says he wants a left sided defender to push Harding. The first game Maloney played with Hutchinson on the bench he had a blinder, just shows what comportition does.

Agree0 Disagree0

I basically follow the same people as the main man ed34, but don't think he allows names to be revealed on this site,it's an in the know club ed isn't it. Ha

Simon {Ed034's Note - Lol if you can find me on there, feel free to follow me and look at who I follow

Agree0 Disagree0

All the ince rumours are pure speculation! why would he leave Blackpool to join Forest when he will have more chance being promoted with Blackpool. If he goes anywhere its premiership bound.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why does he have more chance with Blackpool?? Bit if look and the right players like ince and we would be up there also blackpool have a much stricter wage cap so could prob offer better terms and his dad still has a house local, not saying we are getting him but don't just out right rule it out

Agree0 Disagree0

He has more chance at Blackpool because they have a better team. Can't see Blackpool letting him go for any less than 5ml and our owners won't splash out that sort of cash.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think they will splash that sort of cash if needed we have not needed to yet I don't think they will be held to ransom but if they and sod think a player is worth splashing on I think they will what do you think ed? {Ed034's Note - agreed. if they can get a player that will improve the first 11 and will still have a sell on value, i'm sure they'll happily sepnd good money

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2012 00:33:30
On a
Iverpool page of this it says We had 3 million deal accepted for spearing and it git 27 believables vots

Believable9 Unbelievable15

A lot, And I mean a hell of a lot of people are saying this guys coming to us.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not really excited by this at all,we have an abundance of midfielders what we need is pace out wide {Ed034's Note - If he comes in he is better than we have and expect moussi to move on. We will still get a winger, even if he does come in, so get excited mate

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would we pay that when we need a winger and could get Ince for 3.5m? {Ed034's Note - Who says buying spearing will mean we cannot buy ince?? If it costs that much to buy ince and so'd wants him, we'll get him, regardless of us buying spearing

Agree0 Disagree1

Not a bad player but what's this mean for people like moose and Cohen {Ed034's Note - I'd say moussi will be sold

Agree0 Disagree0

Is he a winger? we simply dont need anymore midfielders - a flying winger would be a different propersition though {Ed034's Note - He is better than any of our current holding mids. No we don't need him, but he wll improve our starting 11

Agree0 Disagree1

Or just means a lot of Liverpool fans really want him to go and I can understand why. He's awful. Three million is crazy money and completely unjustified.

Agree0 Disagree1

Established Liverpool player last year with cup final and europa lge experience

Agree0 Disagree1

Can get Ince for around that sort of price, would be a nonsense signing if you ask me not needed! and hes got a head the size of jupiter. {Ed034's Note - Why can't we have both??

Agree0 Disagree0

We have the money to get both sure, but Spearing for 3ml is a joke he hasnt earnt that type of price. A loan signing maybe.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ive yet to meet a liverpool fan who rates him? an there are a few round here!
different level of expectation tho?
