Chris Gunther will be sold for no less then £3.Million pounds. Swansea are looking odd's on at the moment to land the right back from Nottingham Forest. the money will go towards wages for lower league players and one or two loans.

Believable1 Unbelievable5

Gunter will not be going anywhere he love forest he a forest lad chambers going to derby been told by a few people he want a new challenge Anderson going to blackpool or Leeds not takeover yet going be long hard season for forest ! {Ed034's Note - I have quickly asked around and none of my contacts have heard of chambers to derby. There is a strong rumour of both Leeds and Cardiff though, the latter being the favourite

Agree3 Disagree4

Chambers will not be staying at forest, he made that very clear at the end of the season. infact i dont think we will keep any of the out of contract players. whats happend to the 10 k a week we offerd McCleary ? why can we not offer other out of contract players both at forest and from other clubs a contract with that ?

Agree3 Disagree1

Chambers looking for a new challenge. He seemed to find this season pretty challenging.

Agree6 Disagree0

Chambo did find it challenging thats because hes not really good enough for championship

Agree1 Disagree0

Chambers to Norwich, Lynch to Southampton, and with Brendan Rogers going to Liverpool Gunter to Swansea would seem unlikely.

Agree0 Disagree0

"Chambo did find it challenging thats because hes not really good enough for championship" That was the point of the previous post.

Agree0 Disagree0

Richard Branson to told talks with the club

Believable5 Unbelievable7

What, to try and get them to change their internet provider to virgin media?

Agree10 Disagree0

He's probably trying to get us to pay for the flights to the States as he's heard we've tried to blag them for nowt...

Agree8 Disagree0

I think we should start a facebook page letting him know we want him it would be great but it's not going to happen we won't get sold at all!!!!

Agree6 Disagree2

This rumour is Virgin on the Ridiculous

Agree6 Disagree0

We could actually start a facebook page. if it got enough members it would snowball. there's no way we'd get branson but we'd get the club in the news...(i am still drunk from last night btw but if anyone wants to start this group then let us know)

Agree1 Disagree0

There were a lot of rumours that The Canadians linked with us are in discussions with Leeds United.
This is now also on their official website:
And Ken Bates has a better track record of selling clubs than the numptys in charge of our club.

Believable3 Unbelievable4

The statement does not say anything about this being the Canadians and it only says they are discussing investment, not necessarily the club being bought out. If it is the same people then not sure I want someone buying us who is just jumping from one club to another until they've bought someone.

I have a contact within the playing staff at forest who is still under contract who informs me that we will be searching the lower leagues for players to bolster the squad

Believable8 Unbelievable3

Cheers for that one

Agree8 Disagree0

Agree5 Disagree1

As we have for years... eg McCleary, Chambers, Cohen, Lynch etc

Agree1 Disagree1

Chambers Cohen and lynch were hardly us scowering the lower leagues, they were the best players we could attract at that time from teams around us...northampton yeovil and brighton were all league one at that point

Agree1 Disagree0

And "at that point" we could probably offer higher wages.

Agree0 Disagree1

larry tanenbaum has made an offer to buy forest FACT! and is only RUMOURED to have put an offer in for leeds utd, check his wickipedia its all on there {Ed034's Note - I'm not saying the is true or false, but wiki can be edited by anyone, so I would not suggest you use it as a place for facts

Believable2 Unbelievable2

My Nan could post on wiki that she has invented time travel, doesn't make it real(although is probably is).

Agree5 Disagree0

Another one of those posts where people post " - FACT" at the end of it, thus making it 100% true

Agree4 Disagree0

The Canadian billionaire being linked with us if you remember, he is having a conference regarding buying a football club and he said its not Leeds soo it could be us just saying and don't go hating because its a rumours site !

Believable2 Unbelievable3

And where did you dig that information up from?
Unless you're sat there in the conference call how would you know it is taking place?
Utter garbage mate.

Agree4 Disagree0

Can you say more about the conference please. Where is it, who is attending and when was the statement made?

Agree0 Disagree1

I hate you simply for using the phrase, 'don't go hating'.

Agree2 Disagree1

It is to do with the Toronto Football Club getting a new sponsor.

Agree1 Disagree0

Unfortunately the announcement is just about naming rights of the soccer team they own!

Agree2 Disagree0

How do you know!

Agree1 Disagree0

'I hate you simply for using the phrase, 'don't go hating'.
ABSOLUTE CRACKER I almost soiled myself laughing.

Agree3 Disagree0

Was the above attempting to be funny? If so, you failed.

Agree2 Disagree3

This guy is rumored to be buying every championship club, dont believe a word

Agree0 Disagree0

Sorry lads all it said was there was a conference about a club didnt specify which one soo I took a guess at it might having something too doo with forest so sorry for making up a rumour on a rumours page soo don't go hating

Agree2 Disagree0

Or was in a club in the Conference

Reading make 2m bid for super sup[er Chris Gunter...
Obviously GM has said how he can only play on the right if Gunts is behind him...tell Brian McD to stuff it...cheapsake...5m of nothing. Gunts is one of our best...Reading are quids in so they can bloody well cough up

Believable13 Unbelievable1

Best right back outside prem by a mile

Agree15 Disagree4

2.5 or 3 will do give youths a chance

Agree4 Disagree3

Being young enough doesn't make you good enough

Agree6 Disagree4

Sell for 2.5m - 3m and the money will fund our signings for the summer (freebies but wages covered)

Freeman and Moloney are there to setup up

Agree5 Disagree4

Money from this sale could also go straight onto ND`s estate and nothing to new contracts or players...

Agree2 Disagree6

The estate aren't looking to reclaim by selling our best assets, that would make the club decrease in value at sale

Agree3 Disagree2

The money for gunter will vanish,remember when we sold wes morgan for 1 mill and bamford for 1.5 mill.To bring in loan players and offer players new contracts.No new contracts were agreed and do you think it cost 2.5mill for 5 loan players to play for us from january to april?

Agree4 Disagree3

With Chambers and Lynch both out of contract, Gunter our only senior defender at the club... with Freeman, Moloney and Lascelles still very much regarded as youths.

Despite this I still think selling Gunter (who is far above Championship relegation-fight material) wouldn't be the worst thing that's happened... He's a great player but with no defenders and the McClaren's flops still clinging on, selling Gunts might be the necessary evil to have more than 4 defenders at the club next season

Agree3 Disagree3

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Moloney older than Gunter anyway? We have to remember he's still very young and should be the future of the club. I think Moloney may be out of contract in the summer too.

Agree2 Disagree1

Won't miss his finishing ;)

Agree1 Disagree0

Maloney is simply not good enough sorry.
As for selling Gunts to get in 4 others...are you mad ?, sell the family silver to get lots of cheap tacky tat...bonkers

Agree3 Disagree1

Give youth a chance Gunter is 22 hardly a seasoned pro and is easy best RB outside prem keep him in fact offer him a new contract!

Agree2 Disagree0

I think Chris Gunther should/will be rewarded for his loyalty at the club if/when takeover is complete.

In this day and age its so refreshing to see a loyal player they are few and far between. FTID
