Check out #nffc on twitter. Links to a photo of Al Hasawis daughter wearing a top with the word " Forest " across it. Now I know it's not an official Forest top, but if this isn't a sign then they are the biggest wind up merchants in history.

A 3 year old forest top. Too weird.

The reason pye's are saying 10 days is beause they are going to be the new owers of the club .The full details will be announced by 11am friday at the latest (but could well be tomorrow pm)

Believable5 Unbelievable10

If you actually watched the interview he didn't say 'there will be news in 10 days', he said 'let's say in 10 days time' meaning like an example, or meaning the 1st number that came into his head.

8:01 PM - 20 Jun 12 via Twitter for BlackBerry® · Details {Ed034's Note - To be fair, when John Pye was announced, they said they hope something would be announced in ten days. Well those ten days come to an end over the next two, so he maybe just taking a punt in the hope he sounds like he know things.

Agree2 Disagree1

Im with you on that at least we know marthur is no where near any takeover deal

Agree1 Disagree1

What i foubd odd was that normally you would say a couple of days or a couple of weeks but he specificaly said lets see in 10 days, just seems like he must of known something if he said a certain amount of days

Agree2 Disagree3

Go watch the video interview, if you actually watch it he says ten days as more a suggestion "maybe 10 days lets say"

Agree1 Disagree0

Al Hasawi tweeted for the first time in English earlier this morning that the Forest fans would find out tomorrow - ie Thursday

Believable16 Unbelievable13

No he hasnt

Agree9 Disagree5

That wasn't his first English tweet

Agree7 Disagree2

Actually al hasawi did tweet it! @Dan_newham Care to explain? Is this news regarding forest? And Hasawi replied with "@Fawaz_alhasawi tomorrow you will no" :O!!

Agree11 Disagree7

I follow him on twitter and there is no such tweet! so...... prove it

Agree1 Disagree6

Didnt actually mention forest and the reply was to someone from chester just said tomorrow you will know could mean anything tweet was in reply to a comment that said i dont know what your saying

Agree2 Disagree2

Can't see it on his account!

Agree2 Disagree1

To be fair when the Rumours originally started all the Kuwatis said we will know 21/06 and i believe John Pye himself said ten days at the kit launch (think that was the 11th?) I think the fact he has tweeted in english show that tomorrow Leeds or Forest will have new owners....

Agree5 Disagree1

The interview in which Adam Pye said it would be in 10 days time was 12th June on the BBC website, however this just could have been the date the article was published and the actual interview may have been the day before which means by my reckoning it should be tomorrow or friday {Ed034's Note - It was put on the beeb website on the same day as the interviews was given

Agree3 Disagree1

I follow fawaz and he has not tweeted in english he is going on about the federal court and a club in kuwait

Agree1 Disagree4

He has tweeted it 10 hours ago it says tomorrow you will no (thats how he spelt know too before anyone talks about spelling)

Agree5 Disagree2

Wasn't his first English tweet he said 'we are happy for England' after the Sweden win. And it won't ago if you're following him because it was a reply to someone so you have to go on to his profile and scroll down.

Agree3 Disagree1

If it does happen tomorrow the board should get out there and get nicky shorey back as he is a free agent atm

Agree6 Disagree4

And who'se going to pay Shorey's wages? {Ed034's Note - If it has happened then it will be the new owner whom will pay

Agree2 Disagree2

Can I just say, those who are disagreeing with the initial post, please take a moment to look at Mr Al-Hasawi's tweets from about 1am today

Agree1 Disagree1

One of the recent tweets on Hasawi's page is congratulating him on buying Forest, and God will be on his side, summet like that anyway. It's the one where the tweets got the picture attached with Forest underlined

Agree2 Disagree2

There is nothing on mr hasawi twitter congratulating him on buying forest

Agree0 Disagree3

Get ya translator out sunshine and have a butchers at his tweets, you'll see it.

Agree0 Disagree0

Just found this tweet on mr hasawi that everyone is talking about, dont know if i should but i now believe that something may be announced tomorrow and am very excited!! Could this finally be the boost we need to get us fighting for our place back with the big boys?

Agree1 Disagree1

Matty Darbyshire could be about to resign for Blackburn Rovers. JR

Believable9 Unbelievable5

Good luck to him - sounds feasible. He's a decent lad, just the wrong fit at Forest.

Agree6 Disagree3

I doubt hed buy himself out , but if there's a termination of his contract i'll drive him to lancashire myself.

hes been a waste of space, and his whinging on twitter, from him and his ex physio (i think it was) was pathetic

Agree5 Disagree1

Matt derbyshire has been working really hard during the break even on his family holiday he was hitting the gym everyday he is so eager to prove himself after a spate of injuries and a serious illness i know this cos ive spoke to his wife a few times i also think he is more of a winger than a forward {Ed034's Note - Where was this??

Agree1 Disagree6

Good player just never had a good run in side dont play for england u21s and be not good

Agree5 Disagree6

Have to admit, I had high hopes for him as he was a good prospect & scored some cracking goals for Blackburn before his move abroad. Sadly, injuries & Shingles wrote his first season off with us. He got some stick on Twitter for diving too much, which really needs to be ironed out of his game at this level. Ended up closing his Twitter account I think. Shame really.

Agree3 Disagree1

Milner did and hes cac

Agree0 Disagree4

He has never been a winger. He would be a good player off a fit Miller. Scores goals inside the box but I agree that his attitude has been poor.

Agree1 Disagree1

I speak to her on twitter and she was really concerned when he got shingles last november cos she had never seen him so ill last time i spoke to her was just before she went to dublin around a week or more ago

Agree0 Disagree0

Of all the strikers at the club i think derbyshire has the most potential but any striker will struggle in a side that doesn't create chances. {Ed034's Note - More than blackstock and miller??

Agree1 Disagree2

Why are people actually considering derbyshire as a possibility?
1) not a proven striker at a good level never has been
2) he didnt even play a quater of the season this year
on that basis why give him another go
dexter blackstock who was out for over a year scored more goals in the birmingham game than derbyshire did all season

Agree1 Disagree1

If you look at last season's stats derbyshire is our 5th best goal scorer per games ratio

dex 1 goal every 2 games
mcleary 1 goal every 2.3 games
miller 1 goal every 2.3 games
radi 1 goal every 3 games
derbyshire 1 goal every 4 games
mcgugan 1 goal every 6 games
tudgay 1 goal every 4.3 games
reid 1 goal every 13 games

Agree0 Disagree1

Addition to last comment

findley 1 goal every 2.3 games

derbyshire 6th best goalscorer

Agree0 Disagree0

Not true. He's happy at Forest and wants to stay for the long term to keep his kids in school here. He's going nowhere!

Agree2 Disagree0
