Apparently Forest have made a bid for young Nigerian Lukman Haruna, anyone heard of him?

Believable4 Unbelievable14

The same player who signed a 5 year deal with his current club in June this year? Not going to happen.

Agree0 Disagree0

Unlikely, he only joined Dynamo Kiev in June for 2.8m this year on a 5 year contract and as only played 1 game so far for them. (Source Wikipedia and BBC)

Agree0 Disagree0

Nice try

Agree0 Disagree0

AAH thanks I just heard the name flung around abit just thought might be a possibility but oh well

A promising player on champ manaher 2009 but never amounted to much.

Macheda likely to join Newcastle according to his agent. ( Sky Sports ). Surprise, surprise.

Believable10 Unbelievable1

Why you didn't think he would end up at relegation fodder did you?

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Aug 2011 14:27:40
Once Forest target Vladimir Weiss has signed for Espanyol on loan from Man City. However according to Talksport "Steve McClaren is keen on Standard Liege midfielder Reginal Goreux and hopes the Nottingham Forest hierarchy release the sufficient funds to help him boost his squad." Apparently he can play in defence too. Only 23 seems like he could be a useful addition, not holding much hope however with our track record!!

Believable10 Unbelievable5

Come on forest
get your finger out

Agree0 Disagree0

Just read that as well - true!

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh goody, another midfielder, just what we want!

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont make me larf

Midfielder can mean winger, which we do need

Believable3 Unbelievable3

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Aug 2011 11:38:50
A few deals still to be done: Gradel, Guthrie, Perch and possibly Carney.

EJ

Believable4 Unbelievable11

Been saying for weeks that McGugan should be sold, good player but too much of a luxury

Agree0 Disagree0

Carney, perch and gradel not a hope

Agree0 Disagree0

Heaven help us not perch

Agree0 Disagree0

NO CHANCE

Agree0 Disagree0

Why does anyone think Gradel will sign for us? Prem clubs are interested so we have no chance.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes please

Agree0 Disagree0

No chance no1 is coming

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Aug 2011 11:37:14
I would sell Mcgugan asap and use the money to tempt Gradel even though I'm not sure he will stay in the championship.Lewis scores great goals from time to time but is a luxury that has to be carried a lot of the time.A poor mans Le Tissier.

Believable7 Unbelievable9

AGREE

Agree0 Disagree0

If u want promotion u must keep mcgugan genious

Agree0 Disagree0

Wow

Our top goal scorer and assist king last season.

Forest fans stupidity hit an all time low...

QPR, norwich, newcastle, swansea, blackpool, all went up because of their star player. We all know who they are !

Agree0 Disagree0

You talk rubbish. His goals kept forest in the division last year and saved billy boy his job.

Agree0 Disagree0

Sell McGugan? Have you taken leave of your senses man?

Agree0 Disagree0

The author of this post clearly has no idea about football and I'm guessing doesn't even go to the matches

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Aug 2011 11:20:25
Max Gradel is a big possibility now. Talks are happening so looks positive.
Also left back is a priority, with a few targets in mind (one is bertrand), but i've nothing else on this.

Source?.....if I mentioned that I might not get anymore info, so i'm not going to say.

Believable11 Unbelievable6

Rubbish, Gradel is in advanced talks with Sochaux. Try a life its fun!

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont think hes got 1 to be fair mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

Gradel will go to newcastle tomorrow

Agree0 Disagree0

Sochaux withdrawn. Your source is Twitter, Simples.

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh boy really and twitter is rubbish

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Aug 2011 10:41:25

Newcastle and qpr will both make late bids for Lewis mcgugan in the region on 3.5 million. Forest are thought want 5 but will let an unhappy player if the money is right.

Believable5 Unbelievable12

If the money is right? Well 3.5 isn't 5 is it, and if forest want 5, the money isn't right weather he's unhappy or not. Massive contradiction!
PS shouldn't really respond to this anyway, as its all complete BS!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Why is he unhappy? Playing more under Steve Mc than he did under Billy D.

Agree0 Disagree0

Rubbish. Only weeks ago McGugan was singing praises of new manager and team being built to suit him. Neither club would waste money on an unproven and erratic player.

Agree0 Disagree0

If a bid comes in forest should snatch their hands off

Agree0 Disagree0

Straight from the man himself " I'm pissed off the club has made promises they have not kept" he's off lads

Agree0 Disagree0

To the person who commented on contradiction? The offer willbe 3.5 forest want 5 so a negotiation will take place so all parties are happy.

Agree0 Disagree0

millwalls liam trotter is a target for forest

Believable7 Unbelievable7

Apparently man u r tracking him u wolly

Agree0 Disagree0

He was definitely a target in the summer. I work at Nottingham Trent Uni and a colleague from Manchester Met uni is very good mates with Trotter and Scott Barron - whether this happens now i doubt it, surely a left back is priority?!

Agree0 Disagree0

Andy Reid was a waste of very large amount of space on the pitch Sunday, slow, no creativity, bad attitude, rubbish corners, the worst Defence wise we had a very bad day, back to the training ground for chambo and morgan, they were useless Ambrose from Palace will sign before deadline dead.

Believable3 Unbelievable12

Disagree he started the move on sunday that got forest's goal

Agree0 Disagree0

He's been good this season and was during pre-season. Had a pretty good game, a little slow but we knew that already. Army

Agree0 Disagree0

I guess we were watching a different match. You single out Reid but fail to highlight just how bad McGugan was whom he replaced.

Agree0 Disagree0

True nothing like the player he was when at forest last time around, and he was a lazy arse then

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought he did ok in the middle rather than out wide actually. His reverse ball split the defence for the cross for our goal. You might as well slag off the rest of the team - they were about as much use.

Agree0 Disagree0

Always a fan of reid but he needs to lose a lot of weight

Agree0 Disagree0

Reid has looked like a fat pub player from day 1

Agree0 Disagree0

To be fair he has only had three and a quarter games and nobody played well against millwall and only cohen radi miller and findley played ok against west ham

Agree0 Disagree0

Complete rubbish, if anything Reid bought some much needed energy and aggression getting amongst West Ham. As for Ambrose, get real.

Agree0 Disagree0

Drop chambers at fault for a few goals this season. against whu and notts c also not a capt. league 1 at best just my thoughts thou.

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't know which game you were watching - didn't you see Reid having a go at people and trying to get some determination and aggression into the side? He was playing with passion and although he's not quick, his passing is better than most. He worked well with Lynch on the left but we still need a LB.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yer he was rubbish on Sunday, worst player on the pitch, never rated him

Agree0 Disagree0

Reid was the best player on the pitch

Agree0 Disagree0

We are very genuinely interested in FK Jablonec 97's (from the Czech Republican league) striker David Lafata. I havent done so because I'm hate Wikipedia, but you can look at his stats and details there if he's on it. We have OFFICIALLY made an approach, BUT ONLY JUST AN APPROACH, and it is 50/50 whether it'll be done by Wednesday. If not, we'll look to negotiate further In January hopefully. This is a similar kind of rumoured deal for Giles Barnes, but no more than that. The source is Sky Sports News on the TV. It was announced at 22:08 so i came on here to post it on and I also sent an email to editor@nottinghamforest.co.uk on the press talk page on the official website but I said I will send another email once I have the link to the skysports.com webpage to prove there is interest. I dont know why nothing is on skysports.com, but it's inevitable that it will surely be at least on the sky sports website tonight/tomorrow morning, and the furthermore, on press talk on the official Website.
No one please turn this into an exaggerated fake rumour because it's true however REMEMBER THERES ONLY BEEN AN OFFICIAL APPROACH, but nothing more and once it gets announced about the interest, you'll realize I was right. Some of you reading this also would have seen it at some point on Sky Sports News. By the way, I would love to know how we saw the player in the first place, but then again there are a million and one things going on behind the scenes and obviously theres scouts, plus he may just have been spoke about, or spotted by chance.

Believable4 Unbelievable6

Why are we looking at more strikers after sundays display against west ham we need a new back four.

Agree0 Disagree0

Your making this up mate sorry

Agree0 Disagree0

Well if it is made up at least he made some effort instead of rehashing old rumours.

Agree0 Disagree0

I don`t want to hear about some foreign player I`ve never heard of or any more players in their early to mid thirties.Let Mc Guagan go (what a baby) along with his poor attitude and shell out some proper money on 3 tried and tested top rate players for Christs sake! We`re too far in to p.ss about now, it`s all or nothing!

Agree0 Disagree0

He wont come be homesick.
