Believable1 Unbelievable15

What has happened to all these people 'in the know' telling us all about an anouncement today, shhhhh.....tumbleweed, that's where.

Agree9 Disagree3

Where you heard this cos there has been nothing official

Agree6 Disagree3

Says in this sis nottingham he left but dont say who too

Agree0 Disagree3

He`s in talks with Hull...

Agree4 Disagree3

He is in talks with hull,he turned Blackpool down because he didnt want to live there,he'll listen to hull and any one else but will keep on the take over goings on or lack of

Agree3 Disagree2

The new boss is fawaz and no player is going anywhere

Agree2 Disagree3

If we are to have this mega money takeover, would Paul Anderson be a part of the big plan anyway? In my opinion if we want to stay up, we could do with Paul. If we want to go and stay up, Paul would be no more than a bench warmer

Agree1 Disagree1

No.. he turned blackpool down because they offered him worse contract terms than at forest..

Agree3 Disagree0

If anywhere he'll go to Hull , his family are Hull fans i think he is too , so assuming he as some roots there ? {Ed034's Note - i thought they were fester fans, but i maybe wrong

Agree0 Disagree0

Am i right in saying his families from Burton? {Ed034's Note - i thought is was Leicestershire, maybe Loughborough

Agree0 Disagree0

Anderson was brought up in melton mowbray, but he did start his career at hull.

Agree1 Disagree0

Remember him saying his dad was a hull fan before the 0-0 season before last

Agree0 Disagree0

Not sure if is has anything to do with forest at all but just seen bryan roy in west bridgeford

Believable4 Unbelievable9

Just seen Andre Silenzi in the CG car park. Apparently he is replacing JFH as goal scoring coach.

Agree5 Disagree6

Andreas Silenzi! happy memories. How we laughed when he played his first game, then we remembered he cost 1m which was alot in those days.

Agree6 Disagree2

I've just seen silenzi aswell....well I saw his nose, his face will be with me in about a minute.

Agent 279

Agree9 Disagree3

Hope he brings in Rosario as his assistant

Agree3 Disagree3

Silenzi cost us 1,8 mill...

It as emerged J Llyod Samuel is on Nottingham Forest radar. The former Aston Villa and Bolton player became a free agent over the summer. Sources close to the club indicate manger Steve Cotterill is keen to take the versatile left sided player on trial.

Believable6 Unbelievable8

No, this has nothing to do with sources close to the club. You've simply seen the report on sky sports news today.

Agree5 Disagree2

That sounds great.

Agree2 Disagree6

Thats funny cos he wants prem footy

Agree2 Disagree5

He wants to got a iran club where he spent last season.

Agree2 Disagree4

Samuel offered Iran stay
Defender keen on return to England after Esteghal loan

Agree2 Disagree3

He will get paid five times as much in Iran, so why bother getting boo'ed at a Championship Club?

Agree4 Disagree5

He didn't get paid more in Iran. And he wasn't on loan, he signed on a free for them last summer.

Agree0 Disagree2

He will almost certainly receive far more money for playing in the Middle East. I know nothing of his specific wage package, but generally speaking players get paid more and I'd be surprised if he was any different (compared to Forest wage potential).

Agree0 Disagree0

Takeover is still on but will not be announced until the Euro final is over. Steve Cotterill be will made number two with Jurgen Klinsman taking over as manager. No news on signings, but likely players coming in will be from abroad and not the championship or Premiership.

Believable7 Unbelievable24

Whats your souce sounds like bs to me

Agree12 Disagree3

sorry best one ive heard today

Agree11 Disagree3

What happened to pat newby bid ?

Agree6 Disagree2

About as funny as Coles penno

Agree8 Disagree1

JK - of course he will be Forest manager, Liverpool and Spurs I guess not big enough for him! The only bloke we will have managing Forest with the initials of JK will be Joe Kinnear!

Agree5 Disagree7

Such a poorly conceived lie. And the completion of Euro 2012 has what relevance exactly?

*why am I replying to this rumour?!?*

Agree6 Disagree4

Liverpool and Spurs? of course they are big enough for him but they have managers. But in all honesty i don't think the takeover will happen until January. Maybe we could get Alley McCoist?

Agree1 Disagree4

Yeah what happened to the big fat pat newby bid?

Agree1 Disagree2

Spurs don't have a manager {Ed034's Note -

Agree2 Disagree2

Klinsman turned Liverpool down and Spurs do not have a manager.

Agree2 Disagree3

When will the first rumour about Mourhino appear on this board I wonder ?, not long at this rate.

Agree2 Disagree3

Inside football (An Owner of another Championship club) told me Friday that Palladini is taking over Forest and Warnock is to become the manager. I have read all the rumours over the last five weeks but this is the first from this source.

Believable4 Unbelievable19

The Kuwait's have already signed, its just not public yet. Keep an eye on forest website because this is the first place the news will be seen.

Agree10 Disagree10

Must be true - Paladini and Warnock must be best of friends as shown on QPR documentary....

Agree6 Disagree4

No1 knows if its signed or not its just a waiting game now and no1 knows whose gunna take us over either! So much for the 10am announcment today

Agree9 Disagree3

Warnock is going nowhere my friend, Leeds are also in a takeover, rumoured to be big money and he has started his team building already. You seem to forget for all his flaws that Warnock is an honourable man, he will not walk away on a whim from some poster on a rumours site.

Agree3 Disagree7

Warnock honourable? The man who tells players to get sent off so a game will be abandoned....behave!

Agree3 Disagree1

Honourable man is not the first thing i wud call warnock

Agree2 Disagree1

There may be some truth in this rumour.....

Agree2 Disagree3

There may not be any truth in this rumour

Agree4 Disagree1

well according to all the rumours we will be taken over at 10.00 this morning by a kewaiti, a local businessman.
who says so well the local school kids ect ect. cant wait till /if we do get taken over what the rumours wil be on player signings. i know we all have forest at heart but lets wait and see, i know its hard but we are nffc and like england we do things the hard way.
om prepared to get moaned at ect but no one knows anything till its released and i wil believe it when i see it on the os
rant over

Believable7 Unbelievable12

Is anyone else finding it difficult to understand this piece of literature? {Ed034's Note - Good England lol

Agree10 Disagree5

It was meant that if you believe al the rumours on here thats what will happen sorry im not that good at explaining myself as i have trouble with my health.
well its nearly 10 am

Agree3 Disagree2

I'm wondering what local school kids have got to do with it! It's 10 o'clock...... I'm waiting!

Agree4 Disagree2

It's 10.05 and nothing's happened. Nothing on the radio,
2 news, nothing on radio Nottm. .........

Agree3 Disagree2

I'm finding it difficult to believe any of the rubbish posted on here ED.
Suggested announcement timeframes come and go without any news.
As always we will find out when the club releases the news and not before. {Ed034's Note - I would take most things put on here with a pinch of salt. I think we all know it is odds on to happen, but it's just a matter of when

Agree4 Disagree1

We know we have to patient but its painfull waiting.

Agree2 Disagree1

Well it needs to happen this week, Lynch and Chambers contracts run out on June 30th. If nothing happens before that date then I seriously dont believe there are any potential buyers at the table.

Agree1 Disagree1

This is a RUMOURS site (by definition means just that - something, someone has heard/seen and wants to share it with the other fans). I for one have been entertained by all the oddball and even possibly true rumours that have appeared here since end of May. I very rarely go on this site under normal circumstances, as there isn't usually anything so important going on, but I now open it up every day at the moment and I have even posted info on here during this period, taken mostly from newspapers. If you don't take everything as gospel, it can even brighten your day. Like most people, I cannot wait for the announcement and one thing is for certain, it will be before the start of the coming season!! - then other rumours will start - like which players Forest might buy, will we get a new stadium? etc. etc. - I think at last Forest might be having the luck they deserve! UREDS

Agree9 Disagree4

After last night's, best of English show, I would like to see our super academy , coaching passing & retaining the ball

Agree4 Disagree1

'After last night's, best of English show, I would like to see our super academy , coaching passing & retaining the ball'

no chance, it'll be 90% fitness based, that's why our so called academy hasn't produced any talent in 10 years, just clones who can run up & down but little else. {Ed034's Note - bamford, lascelles, mcgugen, freeman???

Agree2 Disagree3

Thats hardly a good return on 10 years of the academy editor, come on..
just look at southampton, similar sized club, and look who they've produced last few years: Baird, Bale, Best, Bridge, Wallcott, Oxlade-Chamberlain {Ed034's Note - the quote was '.....hasn't produced any talent.....'

Agree1 Disagree1

Bamford : untried at first team level
Lascells : untried at Championship level and would have to improve alot
Mcgugan : ability in abundance but mainly in his head

Agree3 Disagree1

Exactly, no talent. there no good if they can't contribute to the team {Ed034's Note - Mcgugen has contributed by a scoring plenty, bamford has contributed with the 1m fee, lascelles has yet to be given a chance but the fact arsenal put in a big bid suggest he will.

Agree0 Disagree1

So as far back as 2002
hmmmm.... i can think of Dawson (Bit injurry prone but Playing at the heart of spurs defence), Reid (ok never quite reached his potential thanks to guiness and pies), Morgan (dont need to comment) and Perch (under rated and sorely missed in my opinion) then on to mcgugan and the current crop... will say not a vast amount but there is some talent there..... but i have a mate who is a yoith coach at teh club and he says Jack Blake is red hot and should be in the first team picture along with a few others

Agree2 Disagree2

Oh and before anyone asks.... hes a freelance youth coach who has his own soccer school and works with Villa, Sheep, Leicester and The black and white from over the river... i have asked him if he knows anything on the takeover but he says he doesnt and if he did he couldnt say..... i have also met Jack blake a couple of times at functions for the coach in his personal life, (engagment party and local team presentation) and seems a really grounded lad and looking at the time when Bamford was banging in the goals it was Blake who made a fair few and scores a few as well so could do with more like him in the first team

Agree1 Disagree1

Oh dear 2.25pm and no announcement, why am I not surprised. Rumours will only get worse than this one when the kids break up from school.

Agree1 Disagree1

I think everyone is a bit unfair pinning ridiculous rumours on kids. If you look on twitter for example, most of the silly rumours are from fully grown adults

Agree2 Disagree0

To be fair billy davies released a few 'up and coming' youngsters, others often never got the chance we often heard of players coming through only for them to be released look at Sinclair he has scored a free for Peterborough

Agree0 Disagree0

Former QPR midfielder Marc Bircham lined up as new Director of Football under the new regime. Source Dean Jones (People Newspaper via Twitter @DJones_People ).

Believable2 Unbelievable7

Im getting a bit concerned with all this QPR connection, palladini, warnock, bircham etc. palladini should be nowhere near british football, like him or loathe him warnock would get us up. I wonder if Michael Doughty is the QPR influence?

Agree3 Disagree1

Isn't michael doughty still a child to all intents and purposes?

i seriously doubt he'd have anything to do with it whatsoever.

Agree0 Disagree4

He plays for qpr

Agree0 Disagree0
