Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen.

A Block here with some incredible yet brilliant news for all Forest fans.

I, along with the help of a Merchandiser friend of mine, have made a formal offer to Mr Doughty for the outright purchase of Nottingham Forest Football Club.

My Merchandiser friend of mine is a wealthy man who is well connected in the rag trade, media (Sky Sports) and aslo owns a string of holiday homes. He does NOT wish his identity to be revealed so I WILL respect HIS wishes.

Watch out for more news of this next MONDAY.

Keep the faith.

Believable5 Unbelievable20

Agree0 Disagree0

Take more water with it son

Agree0 Disagree0

Holiday homes, eh? In other words, you're referring to your mate from the pub who has 4 caravans parked in his driveway.
Bloody hell, i'd rather have ND.

Agree0 Disagree0

Based on your bidders assets he will be bidding pennies not millions!

Agree0 Disagree0

...and this guy who bought forest said...."keep it hush hush but i dont might you putting it on a football rumours website"...some people are full of it

Going to the game tonight, I think we should just shout for BRIAN CLOUGH tonight, not against the owners as it is a bit disrespectful on the anniversery of his passing.

Believable13 Unbelievable3

Great shout mate.

Fan protests at the City Ground yesterday resulted in 400 fans venting their anger at chairman Nigel Doughty with one saying: "We are just fed up with being treated like idiots, 11 years of broken promises, enough is enough."

Breaking rumour:

Doughty is to gift NFFC to a fan consortium.

It's currently not clear how they will fund the annual £6m loss and also find money for transfers. One potential route would be to raise ticket prices to approximately £100 a game. Another would be to halve player salaries though it is thought the players may object to this.

Believable6 Unbelievable38

Leave it out Marthur. If he did do this I would run the club without having to do any of those things. I would simply sack you, Pelling and Pleat

Agree0 Disagree0

Some people think Nigel Dougherty is a legend. we'd be skint without his generosity.

Agree0 Disagree0

Perhaps running the club properly like other similar sized clubs over the years may have helped. Norwich is a good example.

Agree0 Disagree0

Time to use the Barcellona club model then! Lol

Agree0 Disagree0

I have an anecdote that might somehow relate to the situation at our club, but I can't quite put my finger on it...

Right, for the last 13 years I was supposed to fix the roof on my house so we could rent out the spare room and recover the cost, maybe even make enough to extend the place.

But each year I only half did the job and a couple of times I even gave away the tiles for free. Another couple of times I only had a corner left to fill in but just never got round to finishing the job. So the damage keeps setting in and we get no lodger-money.

I must have spent hundreds of thousands on it, I estimate that I owe the suppliers a sodding fortune (even though I'm the only supplier), truth be told I went into it with the best of intentions but over the years I've made a right mess of the job. I got my mates to help me but if anything they've made it worse.

But if my wife & kids dare to complain about my incompetence then I shall point out that they can always live in a tent.

Agree0 Disagree0

And you'd be right! they could!

Agree0 Disagree0

Fantastic post and hopefully some of the narrow minded children on this site, will now stop and think a little

Hoppers u1

Agree0 Disagree0

What an idiotic post more like.

Agree0 Disagree0

So did you ever get round to fixing the roof then orrr?

Agree0 Disagree0

Funny that anecdote reminds me of mark arthur, sure you're not him? He's been around for around 13 years, always does half a job, gets paid hundreds of thousands over the years and he's certainly made a right mess of the job. If we complain of incompetance, he always points out how he has been able to buy a lovely big tent for his hols, with all the money saved from buying any players. Hell there might even be some cash in the kitty for a new brolly...

Agree0 Disagree0

Doughty uses forest as a tax fiddle

Agree0 Disagree0

And your proof on the 'tax fiddle' is where exactly??
unless you can back up your posts, don't you think it would be better to keep them to yourself? we are meant to be in this together as fans, good times or bad and comments like this are causing a split. how is this going to help us climb the table??

Agree0 Disagree0

Its not which is why these are seep not reds. Get back to non league nigel, we will still finish above you.

Agree0 Disagree0

Balls
