Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cotterill is ready to to raid former club Portsmouth for David Norris and Luke Varney. (Daily Mirror)

Believable8 Unbelievable8

Norris? Why do we need yet another journeyman midfielder? Luke Varney is a useless sack too, no better than the strikers we have. Praying this is utter BS.

Agree7 Disagree5

Not heard the Norris story till today, the Varney link is one that won't go away. Pompey fans say that he is good on the ball but doesn't score enough, therefore just like what we've already got!

Agree7 Disagree1

Thats what we need. another 30+ midfield player and a striker that doesn't score. sound. yeah, heres 20k a week to warm the bench boys. but they are a good buy, they brought nothing but success to pompy... oh no wait... they didnt

Agree3 Disagree1

Varney i dont want but norris could be a good shout, very very experienced and champ level an pompy wanted him to stay out of most players, norris halford and huseklepp.... Now thats what we need

Agree3 Disagree1

A lot of players might be leaving these players might be a cheap shout

Forest will release all players that are out of contract at the end of the season and make sure lynch , mcCleary and chambers stay. Then the priority lies on guedioura and a new left back on a season long loan from a league 1 club. If the club is take. Over then expect a few more signings in the form of strikers and wingers from lower leagues that have potential.

Believable4 Unbelievable15

A left back on loan from a league one club......your talking rubbish youth.
Cunningham on next to nothing here and there has already been discussion with man city about a season long loan.

Agree11 Disagree0

I wonder how long it took you to think this one up. Utter dross.

Agree8 Disagree0

Why buy a league one left back when we have freeman!

Agree11 Disagree0

Greg halford to sign

Agree7 Disagree3

Isn't Freeman a right back, altho he played lb v Leicester?

Agree2 Disagree0

I'd like to see Halford at the club . . He has a throw and half on him. Something that we dont have in our armoury at the minute. It always look like we are going to lose the ball as soon as we have a throw in.

Agree6 Disagree1

Chambers is off anyone can see that. Good riddance, too big for his boots anyway.

Agree8 Disagree1

Freeman is a left-back but he's been playing at right-back for Notts County

Agree2 Disagree3

Id like to see nath tyson back, that should be our priority, not guedioura. such an over rated player.

Agree3 Disagree19

Id like to see nath tyson back, that should be our priority, not guedioura. such an over rated player.
Shows you know your football keep of the do dah fool

Agree5 Disagree11

I do know my football actually. you cant blame tyson for leaving. As a forest fan, it pains me to say it, but derby are the pride of the midlands at the mo. they will be going up next season, not us. and with tysons pace, they are gonna be un touchable! forest could have used his flair this season. fact.

Agree1 Disagree13

Freeman is actually a right back. He's played left back & centre mid... But his natural position is right back

Agree4 Disagree0

Yeah, tyson was quality, but that was a year ago, we need to move on. i think we'd all have him back in a heartbeat. He has moved to pastures new, and has taken his place in the forest hall of fame with kenny burns, chris bart-williams and andre silenzi

Agree4 Disagree4

Derby going up hah, you can't call that the Championship is to unpredictable. Who knows what next season will bring. I for one cant wait especially if we get some decent owners.

Agree4 Disagree2

I bet it killed you saying 'as a forest fan' lol
I work with one of your lot who's a season ticket holder and he has said Tyson has been awful. He said you lot thought you had a gem on your hands but are all now as frustrated at him, as we ended up when he left.

Agree5 Disagree1

See what your saying about tys, gmac on the right and tys on the left, there would of been some pace going forward....but boy...D**by are not the pride of the midlands by a long shot pal - crikey me!

Agree3 Disagree1

Is this the Tyson who has scored 9 league goals in 4 seasons. And scored 0 goals for Derby this season ? Why do we want a player like that ? He's injured most of the time. Derby will be paying him a good wage to sit on the side lines & not score.

Agree4 Disagree1

No, freeman is a right back! I went to school with him so I should know!

Agree2 Disagree1

Freeman is a right back, but forest have trained him as. Left back from around th age of 14.
If you went I school with him, you should know this, as he started to use his left foot at school and told his friends the reason why.

Hoppers u1

Agree0 Disagree0

Erm, tyson has been Awesome for derby! yeah, he has been inconsistant through injury, but when he is on form he is just as good as ronaldo or lampard.
deffo a better player than flash in the pan macgoldric or mcgugan

Agree1 Disagree7

And dougie freeman was a forward

Agree1 Disagree1

Freeman is a right back and is right footed, it just so happens he is able to also play left back but not as good as rightback. A bit like Gunter who could play both fullback roles but was better down the right, so stop trying to make out you know rubbish to make yourself look

Agree1 Disagree1

This guy must be derby fan,how can you say tyson is better then guedioura? he reckons derby are pride of the midlands? what a idiot

Agree3 Disagree1

I'll tell you what, you think what you like. It doesn't change my life if you believe me or not.
Th funniest thing is I am agreeing with you that he's right footed, I am just telling you forest have trained him up as a left back, but you are too stupid to realise that.

Agree3 Disagree0

Is the person that said Tyson is better the Guedioura still high this morning what a spoon!

Agree4 Disagree1

Doesn't it do your head when you get people trying to make out they know this player and that player, when really they think they know them because once upon a time they bumped into them somewhere or they went to school with them. Freeman is a right back playes right back for both Mansfield and Notts when on loan there. Also plays right back for under 19 Wales. He is able to play at Left full back and forest noticed this which is why they played him there as we have no left back at the club. However his best position is right back which him himself says. Now for the plonker and Tyson. Take your silly derby head from up your backside. Tyson was a sack or crap the best thing he did at forest was when the goal v Norwich bonced in off him last season. If Derby truly think he is their best player then we can sit here and laugh all night long.

Agree3 Disagree2

I love rants from fans like that. Moaning about people that know players, by saying you know the player.
It doesn't matter who you believe, because at the end if the day, it's all about facts.
You can find facts that state freeman, since the age of 14, has been played as a left back by forest.
You may have met the lad once, you may be just saying it to prove your right, even though you don't know him. We'll never know.
What we do know is, for the last few years, he has been played as a left back, by the club that pay his wage, regardless of where his loan clubs have played him.
Now stop your stropping, put your dummy back in and just accept there ste actually people out there who are on speaking terms with players

Agree3 Disagree0

Tyson is just a sprinter with a pair of football boots - the sheep can keep him.

Agree0 Disagree0

Guedioura stood out a mile every time I saw the reds this season. Over rated or not, he takes control of the games and works his tits off. He got the team ticking again and helped kept us up. Id like to see him back!

Sack Chambers off, let him go....I've never rated him...

Agree0 Disagree0
