Speculation should be over soon. Ive a friend who works at the BBC on London Road. She knew id be interested to know that there is a bit of a buzz going around the office of an imminent press conference being set up at Forest. She doesn't know any more than that, but something is definitely happening soon.

I know that, I for one will be glad to hear some good news for a change.

I sincerely hope so - whilst the rumors were once generating some excitement they are now becoming tiresome and we are in need of moving forward ready for what promises to be a very competitive league. Leaving things much longer will see us getting left behind.


Agree18 Disagree2

By imminent does she mean today or within the week?

Agree7 Disagree3

I hope you a right.

Agree11 Disagree2

This is probably the most credible thing iv seen in recent weeks on here

Agree6 Disagree10

No reply from Paul Taylor, Robin Chipperfield or Natalie Jackson. Are they on their way to CG or bored of the speculation

Agree8 Disagree5

I hope there is no takeover soon: this page will be far less entertaining

Agree8 Disagree6

Ticket details for WBA and Villa - was this the big announcement today?

Agree6 Disagree3

Like theres going to be a buzz around BBC London of a Forest takeover ! another carlsberg moment I think

Agree0 Disagree9

BBC Offices on London Road, Nottingham, ya div

Agree12 Disagree0

London ROAD read it properly !!

Agree11 Disagree0

Just been talking to someone who has been past the city ground and says there is a lot of activity down there. not sure if its normally that busy down there on a weekday

Agree3 Disagree2

Just drove by myself got cob from shop had bet in ladbrokes not very busy to me o. hold on seen a window cleaner he could be a new signing

Agree6 Disagree0

Natalie Jackson has been told to keep her nose out of forest ;)

Agent 279

Agree6 Disagree1

Keep telling everyone all the takeover hype is doing my head in , but deep down i can't remember being so excited . {Ed034's Note - Lol

Agree1 Disagree0

Hi everyone, with the mounting speculation surrounding the takeover on the Bbc sport web page their is an article saying forest takeover imminent. There is a direct quote from mark Arthur saying we will know all within the next ten days. Good news everyone {Ed034's Note - I cannot see it myself

Agree2 Disagree4

My sister works for BBC Nottingham. She says they are on standby for a press conference on Thursday regarding the clubs long term future.when she told me the news I told her I was preparing for a big anti-climax. She told me that the word around her office is that no forest fan will be dissapionted. Apparently this is huge and my sister is usually very pessimistic, especially about forest

Agree2 Disagree3

I delivered a parcel to the BBC in Nottm today, i spoke to the main receptionist, who asked the sports desk and i spoke to mark dennison who is a dj there and PA announcer at forest and there is nothing in the near future apparantly.

Agree1 Disagree4

2/3 days to go. You heard it from me first last Sat. The intention was, and still is, to conclude a deal 'by the end of next week' ie this Friday. Sad day for Forest if we have foreign owners. {Ed034's Note - Why would that be a sad day??? I'm sure man city fans dont think that

Agree3 Disagree1

Ha ha your expecting us to believe that as a delivery driver the receptionist called the sports desk to answer your question.

Personally I don't think a takeover will happen this week. These rumours are crazy though!

Agree2 Disagree1

Would be nice if the "you heard it here first crew" would have the balls to leave their names.

If you were that confident of your inside knowledge you would.

Agree3 Disagree0

You don't really need the ITKs to leave their name as I'm sure the Ed can tell who posted what by their IPs

As for the BBC sitting on something exciting - I can't remember the last time they got an exclusive. I've know EMT to report 'news two or three days after it has become common knowledge.

Agree1 Disagree1

Nose being the operative word!

Luke Chambers will be staying at Nottm Foret

Believable9 Unbelievable25

I hope he doesn't

Agree33 Disagree9

Well if he desides to stay lets hope he has a better season, more like


Agree24 Disagree1

Do one luke

Agree15 Disagree5

Not interested, another player who thinks he's something he isn't, let him go.

Agree15 Disagree3

He was'nt in such demand from other clubs as he I don't want to see him in a Forest shirt again and definetly not captain.... Who do you all want as captain this season?

Agree13 Disagree2

Cohen as captain for me

Agree12 Disagree2

Chris Cohen

Agree9 Disagree3

I believe we are a million miles away from anything happening re TO! {Ed034's Note - why is that??

Agree4 Disagree3

I think we need to keep Chambers as cover but when the takeover is complete, I think we should sign another defender to partner Lynch. Maybe a return of Higginbotham?

Agree9 Disagree5

Totally behind a bid for Higginbotham, would consider him as captian with his experience or as i mentioned above, Chris Cohen as i feel he is an emotional leader.


Agree6 Disagree2

People need to get over Higginbotham and Lynch unless we are going to play 1 of them at left back. 2 left sided central defenders is a recipe for disaster a la Des Walker and Carl Tiler (obviously Tiler was shocking as well but besides the point). I think Higgingbotham would be a good signing but if Lynch stays then I cant see us playing both in centre of defence. If we get Chambers playing with confidence again (take armband away from him as it is just added pressure for someone who just needs to concentrate on their game and give it to Cohen in my opinion or depedning on who we sign if we ever get chance to) then him and lynch could do well together with Gunter (if we keep hold of) and then a good LB. {Ed034's Note - but most clubs play with two right sided centre backs, so surely theres no difference

Agree2 Disagree3

Agreed Ed but I dont see it work personally (my opinion). I would rather see 2 right sided than 2 left just going on past experience {Ed034's Note - I can't imagine there have been many occasions it has happened, but ideally I would agreed with one of each. It's funny we are discussing this when we havn't had a left back for I can't remember how long lol

Agree1 Disagree1

Yes agreed. Funny how we have got more chance of a takeover than signing a left back. Signing a LB must be going through due dilligence, etc as well!

Agree1 Disagree0

Carl tiler and des walker were never in the same team and reidy should be captain only player who had any heart this season

Agree4 Disagree2

Reidy plays with heart and chats but he is no captain, he is lazy in defence, the captain should be a mr dependable type character. Hopefully a take over soon and well sign a player with such leadership qualities... Higginbottham would be perfect but maybe unlikely... Cohen is the only man in squad I'd turn to

Agree0 Disagree1

A friend posted this on my facebook earliar "Apparently our first signing is rumoured to be Heidur Helguson from QPR once the takeover's complete..?" He always seems to know whats going on as he scours the net like me.

I would love us to go into the season on a high for once. Great club FTID
