on twitter paul taylor states takeover not too far away and might bring new manager, but he thinks SC should be given a chance.

Believable15 Unbelievable11

He also states that that is his opinion and he has no inside knowledge at all.

Agree12 Disagree2

I follow Paul Taylor he's tweeted nothing of the sorts!

Agree6 Disagree8

Why do people confuse to and too? {Ed034's Note - I think it has been used correctly. Try not to be too bothered about the spelling on posts ;-)

Agree5 Disagree9

'Paul Taylor ‏@nottmtails

Hopefully won't be too long before things start to happen... new owners normally means new manager, but I'd like to see SC given a chance.'
Paul tweeted this 10 hours ago. You can't follow him if you missed it, it was his last tweet today.

I have heard the deal to buy forest is very much still on an very close to being completed. Cotterill has been told he will be given a chance to impress and has been told to put his plans into motion, forests first signing will be gerg halford as cotterill made him his number 1 target since the end of last season

Believable7 Unbelievable15

If Greg halford is our number one target we'd better get ready for league one!!!

Agree15 Disagree4

No one even knows who or when the takeover will be... Therefore you wudnt know what has been said to cotterill and who his targets are
If you're going to post dribble post something we might believe

Agree9 Disagree4

Greg Norman would be better!

Agree8 Disagree4

Greggs then we'd definitely be keeping Reidy.

Agree5 Disagree2

I thought I knew something when a friend of mine said there was a buz about the BBC office, but nothing has come of it. Lets just wait, I'm promised it will be sorted next week.

Agree7 Disagree2

Halford is awful

Agree8 Disagree2

A number of my brothers are Pompey fans and they really rate him, big strong centre forward, one of their best players apparently.

Agree0 Disagree5

Idiot he is a defender and a bad one at that!

Agree6 Disagree1

Gregory "Greg" Halford (born 8 December 1984) is an English footballer who plays for Portsmouth. He is naturally a right back or centre back[1] but can play in numerous positions including central midfield, right midfield and even as a striker.

Agree1 Disagree4

He can seel programmes and make tea too but he doesn't. If he's a striker then Lewis Hamilton is a shot-putter.

Agree3 Disagree1

Thanks for filling us in who greg halfords is.

If the deal has fallen through then why is fawaz buying £4 million mansion in woodhouse Leicestershire, because he most certainly isn't buying them.

Believable20 Unbelievable14

I hope something happens soon because as it stands i dont think the squad will be strong enough to compete next season, It was the loan players that kept us up!

Agree14 Disagree5

Im from Loughboro which is 4 mile from woodhouse i can confirm this rumour is flying around the town you nice village woodhouse

Agree12 Disagree6

And you know this how?

Agree3 Disagree4

A helicopter was circling a very sw**ky property in woodhouse Thursday lunchtime. Mabye it's the same one?

Agree7 Disagree6

He just said!!

Agree5 Disagree3

I live in Woodhouse eaves neighbouring Woodhouse and have seen the house I'm assuming they're talking about. Just saying the house exists, but doubt fawaz will buy it

Agree7 Disagree4

It is an 8 bedroom house being sold by Bentons estate agents in Melton Mowbray

Agree5 Disagree2

Takeover still on spoke to our main sponsor at 11.30am at radford rd. His words was twitter rumours were fake no need to worry deal just about done.

Agree7 Disagree6

The wife works for a estate agent in Loughborough

Agree4 Disagree6

Deal done will be comfirmed monday morning 10am on sky sports obtained from a insider at bbc radio Nottingham.

Agree5 Disagree8

Deal Done found out a 4pm today really good info not sure who with just said Arabs

Agree7 Disagree4

In reply to the last comment I have heard this as well and all this crap about the deal falling through is fake

Agree4 Disagree2

It's not, it won't and you don't know at all do you!

Agree4 Disagree4

I posted the 4pm post i found out today on the golf course and it sounds really really promising

Agree3 Disagree5

You heard on the golf course? That sounds reliable then ...

Agree8 Disagree0

"Deal done will be comfirmed monday morning 10am on sky sports obtained from a insider at bbc radio Nottingham" Righ, so your 'insider' at the BBC knows that SKY sports radio will announce the deal? - {Ed034's Note -

Agree6 Disagree4

How reliable is ur source? It's all been said before and nothing! I can't see owt on twitter

Agree5 Disagree1

I live nearby and there has been numerous rumours about who is buying the house,fawaz was one of those. I was gunna post it but someone beat me to it. {Ed034's Note - I think the fact you originally started this post, I would say that there's a good chance you may be fibbing by writing this

Agree6 Disagree5

My insider at BBC radio Nottingham said it would be comfirmed on sky sports news at 10am monday. also to be comfirmed on BBC radio Nottingham at the same time but not everybody in the U.K can tune into raidio Nottingham as it is a local station.

Agree3 Disagree3

Get ready for monday at 10 am then ed as think if its wrong this site could get very busy but with more than one person stating it,,mmmm makes you wonder {Ed034's Note - There's a lot of rumours flying around about Monday. I would guess if it was Monday morning, there would be a story in one of the sunday papers in the morning

Agree6 Disagree1

If this top secret info was leaked to all the radio stations than I think someone would have let it slip on twitter :/

Agree3 Disagree2

Yeah. Don't understand why you get grief Ed. The People sport writer thinks there is a story about it tomoz {Ed034's Note - I didn't realise I got grief

Agree0 Disagree2

I think SSN on Monday morning will have more important football news to concentrate on ie Englands progression/exit from the Euro's. Forest, if - and I really mean if, have anything to announce will be so low on the SSN priority list, it just might fall off the bottom.

Agree2 Disagree1

I think as long as rumours about then the club must be moving in the right direction...

In our case no news is bad news !!

Agree0 Disagree2

It's a lie as I work for the radio station and we've had nothing come in to announce anything regarding the takeover sorry

Agree2 Disagree3

What aload of cod...

Agree1 Disagree2

Yes don't we all work for the BBC

Agree3 Disagree2

On the councils website theirs actual planning information for a helicopter pad on that property your talking about.

Agree2 Disagree2

We all just need to be patient, it will be announced next week!

Agree1 Disagree1

All over twitter that the forest deal has fallen through! The fawaz deal they say but its reported theres still another bid on table!

Believable3 Unbelievable10

Looks like it was his old club called his bluff yesterday and deal fell through, got this from @supermomo76 on twitter(Ed you may not want to publish name) reading his tweets he has always said that Fawaz bid not real

Agree2 Disagree5

Where on twitter did you find this I've looked all over and nothing !

Agree5 Disagree0

No it isn't.

Agree4 Disagree0

All the take over stuff is typical Forest in pre season build your hopes up with stella signing all to then know nothing happends i think the takeover wont happen or if it does it be with someone with not alot off cash at all

Agree5 Disagree5

I have sources in HR and this is totally un-true. The deal is still going through. Probably a sheep or one of them nasty foxes.

Agree7 Disagree2

Whether its fallen through or not, whether or not it was ever on the table is irrelevant. If its happening it will happen. If its not happening it won't. The one thing you can be sure of is, as Forest fans no matter what happens we will be in for an interesting season. Talking about what ifs and maybes and stirring the rumour mill won't make things happen. Only time will tell and it is beyond any of our control, so just sit it out and hope its positive.

Agree5 Disagree2

No I'm a big forest fan n just writing wat I've been reading! I was questioning if the rumour was true all nite n all the answers I got was yeah it looks like the Kuwait bid has fallen through

Agree1 Disagree12

Middlesbrough FC manager Tony Mowbray will re kindle his interest in Nottingham Forest ace striker Ishmael Miller, if the likely departure of Marvin Emnes to Swansea City goes through. Mowbray

Believable7 Unbelievable5

Ace? Clearly a lie... {Ed034's Note - I don't think it is. Mowbray likes miller and enquired in jan about him

Agree7 Disagree2

Ive got ya back ed mowbray does have a soft spot for miller lol

Agree3 Disagree1

Ace striker ishmael miller = lie

Agree4 Disagree1

That would be great news if true...a Championship club like Forest should not be carrying any players earning over 1/2 million year, and often this amount guaranteed for three years.

Agree4 Disagree0

I have always hoped he would play a major part in the future of Forest but the only major part he seems right for is as a ptient in Casualty

Agree2 Disagree0

If they are stupid enough to pay 2 million for him, then they can have him.

Agree5 Disagree0

Will drive him there anytime day or night for free

Agree2 Disagree2

When fit and hungry for it, Miller is the best striker in the league. {Ed034's Note - I rate him highly and think he could be a huge asset this season. Not sure bout best in he league though

Agree1 Disagree2

He is lazy and self obsessed which is why he has not made it in Prem....not a team player get what we can and get rid! {Ed034's Note - From speaking to him I disagree

Agree0 Disagree2

Name one time he has played selflessly for the team, encouraged others and not flounced about cussing and swearing. He has failed in Prem, he has failed everywhere he has been after the initial new club flourish. He is injury prone and talks the talk but NEVER walks the walk in a red shirt. Too easily impressed editor, stars in eyes. {Ed034's Note - Everyone is entitled to an opinion and that is mine. When he first signed he look very good, but injuries meant he didn't get a run in the team. I would like to see him given a run of ten games. Not sure what you mean by the 'stars in eyes comment'??
