It says on Wikipedia Andy Reid number 46 any truth?

Believable0 Unbelievable10

Can't personally see this mate don't believe wikipedia . Why would he be iven 46 when 3 or evn more players have left leaving the numbers 9(Dele Adebola), 11(Nathan Tyson) and 18(Paul Mckenna). More likely to be given one of these numbers. Not having ago at you mate just saying this is what is more likely to happen.

Agree0 Disagree0

Number 29 will be his number.

Agree0 Disagree0

46 is his waist size {Ed001's Note - only after he completes pre-season training.....}

Agree0 Disagree0

46 is always Rossi's number in Moto GP. Could Andy Reid be a fan?

Agree0 Disagree0

On forest player and sky sports news there are videos of reid and he is wearing number 11 on his training gear. Then again mcgugan had number 40

Agree0 Disagree0

Andy reid is number 11 look at the pre season training vid and look on his shirt hes number 11 :)

Agree0 Disagree0

He's Number 11

Agree0 Disagree0

Gunter Cohen Findley Majewski Camp all the other players had there correct numbers on so mayby mcgugan forgot his kit or its not the right size for him haha :L also noticed no earnshaw or mousii no there not forest players but thought mcclaren might let them train still :/

Alan Pardew said that Routledge may still have a future at Newcastle, so I doubt that he has signed anything with us yet.

Believable7 Unbelievable9

03 Jul 2011 22:33:28
Type routledge in google and select wikipedia it says he has already signed a pre contract agreement and is player number 18 at forest

Believable3 Unbelievable10

It doesnt

Agree0 Disagree0

Says the same for bolo zenden its all rubbish

Agree0 Disagree0

It says Newcastle United's number 10.

Agree0 Disagree0

Of course it does. Press edit and put your own name in. Choose your own shirt number too. Muppet.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2011 22:15:03
It says on Wikipedia that Shaun Barker plays for Nottingham Forest and has the number 27 shirt?

Believable3 Unbelievable11

Search bolo zenden...same thing its all edited

Agree0 Disagree0

Brendan Moloney shirt number so doubt it

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah yeah, edit it yourself if you want. Anyone can edit wiki, why don't you know that yet?

Agree0 Disagree0

Earnie to extend his contract by a year with improved incentive packages and bonuses.

Believable10 Unbelievable13

Um fair enough. Doesn't sound very plausible though does it. He'll want security and money or a switch to cardiff in which he'll spend 3-4 years winding his career down. Well whatever he does he's a little genius

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah whats your'e source then mate ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Or maybe you should say create a new contract for a year. He wont do that. Ridiculous

Agree0 Disagree0

He's not responding to 'whats your source' so me thinks e dont have one.
Up the mighty Reds and down with foolish rumours

Agree0 Disagree0

dexter blackstock just tweeted about his good friend routledge, saying its always emotional, and that this was a lowpoint. does this mean he's not coming to us?

Believable13 Unbelievable6

Could well be. Actually, very likely now...

Agree0 Disagree0

What, you think he will or won't come?

Agree0 Disagree0

Well skysports says he may still have a future at newcastle

Agree0 Disagree0

Could just mean its a lowpoint for himself, with not being able to start pre season training ?

Agree0 Disagree0

No way at the above, why would he go on about his best mate, then go off completely about his injury.

Routledge isn't coming, he's staying at Newcastle.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2011 19:03:33
Routledge has just tweeted "time to head north #mission" along with a pic of his sat nav with destination 282miles away.
London to newcastle is 284 miles.
I really hoped we would get him but this is not looking very promising.

Believable9 Unbelievable10

That means nothing might be going going to pack

Agree0 Disagree0

Well if he is heading to newcastle, he already plays for them, so maybe he is on his way back home after attending an A-star event in london today.

Agree0 Disagree0

WTF 'time to head north' he already play for Newcastle and if London is north of Newcastle then I'm on top of Rihanna

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope you have your umbrella steve hehe

Agree0 Disagree0

He still lives in London and Newcastle report back to training tomorrow. surely you can work that out for yourself

Agree0 Disagree0

So? He could be there for a million reasons, and you're concentrating on one.

Agree0 Disagree0

The route also goes by Nottingham as well, and that'll take three hours or so if he goes quickly. So, apparently he's been 'spotted' at a Lace Market hotel three hours ago maybe?

Agree0 Disagree0

On the newcastle rumour site, there is a post saying that he is to report back for training tomorrow at newcastle before moving to us (17 believables, 1 unbelievable), so this is still consistent with that

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm getting confused now. He could be saying goodbye to his teammates and clearing out his locker, but that doesn't explain Dexter's tweet...

'Its always emotional speaking with @WayneRoutledge. #lowpoint'

Agree0 Disagree0

Dex wouldnt hint at transfers on twitter its probs something personal

Agree0 Disagree0

Did any of you bother to look when the picture was taken?....didn't think so, bottom left hand corner, posted to site 7/3/11, must be the longest journey north in history, geniuses the lot of you.

Agree0 Disagree0

Dexter's tweet is about routledge splitting with some bint

Agree0 Disagree0

Did any of you bother to look when the picture was taken?....didn't think so, bottom left hand corner, posted to site 7/3/11, must be the longest journey north in history, geniuses the lot of you.

The date is in a different format - that date reads July / 3rd / 2011.. same as the Yanks do it - and many Sat Navs are default to that format unless you manually change it. Genius eh?

Peter Lovenkrands will be in on monday. Good source, 2.5 million fee has been agreed.

Believable9 Unbelievable24

That is rubbish

Agree0 Disagree0

Who is your source? and dont say i can't tell you because thats what liers say {Ed025's Note - just a note....if he told you the source...and it was someone within the club...we could not print it!

Agree0 Disagree0

I doubt it highly, but wouldn't be a bad signing...

Agree0 Disagree0

Sorry lovenkrands didn't but Routledge has

Notts Forest have accepted a bid from Aston Villa for Lee Camp, fee in the region of 3.5 Million and Barry Bannan on a season long loan in return.

Believable8 Unbelievable16

Obviously not a Forest supporter, its NOTTINGHAM FOREST.

Agree0 Disagree0

No such team as "notts forest"..it's Nottingham Forest.........You Muppet

Agree0 Disagree0

Notts forest...give over

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree0 Disagree0

Utter Utter shash

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree0 Disagree0

Bull. It's NOTTINGHAM FOREST, no calls us Notts Forest unless you're Steve Claridge or a bad source, and why the hell would we be given an outfield player as a swap too?

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2011 15:06:10
just heard that shearer is being lined up for assistant managers role if calderwood is not released.
anyone else heard this?

Believable9 Unbelievable24

On here I have, yes. Nowhere else.

Agree0 Disagree0

Baldy's ego won't let him be assistant.

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope you are right guys. who wants shearer, really, he's poor on MoTD and has a boring voice.

Agree0 Disagree0

Earnshaw on his way to Brum, contract and personal terms sorted, Crainey, Routledge, Jenas, Zenden all expected to follow Reid into the club.

Believable18 Unbelievable16

Crainey's going wigan

Agree0 Disagree0

What a load of tripe, i will tell you why i don't believe you . #1 you have no evidence and there is no news on any other site. #2 Earnshaw has been seen with dexter and reid in nottingham laughing and joking, why would he join up with team mates if he was going? and #3 Earnshaw will find his form and be promoted under McClaren which will cement him staying at the City Ground for at least another 3 years.

Agree0 Disagree0

*3#.. you can see the future can you? You KNOW what is going to happen with Earnshaw's career do you? Well, enlighten us with some transfer news then, please.

Agree0 Disagree0

Earnshaw as far as I know is either going to Palace or Cardiff...

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2011 13:33:07
nottingham trent university were doing medical tests on forest squad and giles barnes was there so maybe he has signed...

Believable24 Unbelievable10

City campus or clifton? cuz ive been on clifton campus today i didn't see anything special going on

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2011 12:52:47
Wayne Routledge medical booked in for Monday morning, £2mill fee and personal terms agreed.

Decision from Moose due Monday morning too. McClaren has told him if he's going to sign, to report for training, otherwise he has his answer and will move onto other DM targets.

Earnie has turned us down, it's his last big contract and he wants the £20K payday Cardiff and Palace have offered him, (although not sure how Palace can afford that...). Fair play to him and all the best.

Been told to expect a LB and ST, both from abroad in next week too, although Crainey is indeed a back up option just to get us through next season if we don't get our first choice. Our first choice by the way IS NOT Betrand.

FF

Believable19 Unbelievable14

What do you mean by you have been told? I bet you believe your own lies. Over and out mr McClaren

Agree0 Disagree0

I heard earnie wanted 4 grand a week more than we were willing to pay, , surely we weren't offering him 16 grand a week.

Agree0 Disagree0

He may well have only wanted 4k than we were willing to pay, but 20k is the offer thats turned his head in any case.

Not sure what's difficult to understand about "I've been told" either. The info's there for any Forest fan thats wants it. Camp to Villa is nonsense at the moment too, a 3.5mill bid was dimissed out of hand and they were told to get serious, and that was back in May, well before their change of manager etc.

FF

Agree0 Disagree0

I'd want at least 6 for camp considering his age, potential and ability

Agree0 Disagree0

Agreed with the above. Minimum of 6 million for Camp, the best goalie in England outside of the PL.

Agree0 Disagree0

FF

Bit arrogant and patronising, don't you think? It is "difficult to understand" in the sense that it is 'difficult to believe', because as I'm sure you are aware, many people post on here "I've been told this.." or "someone said that..". So who's told you then?

Agree0 Disagree0

I heard via some who's an absolute forest anorak, if it's happening he knows before most 'normal fans' and as with all 'sources' he don't say whee he gets it from. it's all obviously third or fourth hand, but tht's what makes it a rumour.

Agree0 Disagree0

20k? That's about 5 more than we pay him now and we've offered him a pay cut. I seriously doubt a championship side are offering him those wages.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2011 12:49:47
Forest set to make a bid of £3.5 million for Craig Makail-Smith in an attempt to beat leicester for his services

Believable9 Unbelievable26

You got no money and all you buy are washed up has-beens muppets

Agree0 Disagree0

We've got a lot of money and we're one of the most financially stable teams in the division. And we've bought a twenty eight year olds with the potential to be the best midfielder in the country.

Now shove that up your pipe and schmoke it...

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't believe this for a second. even a festa fan can work out this is make believe

Agree0 Disagree0

You may have some chinese man's money but you also have a crap manager who has never been loyal to a club? I am surprised you havn't been trying to replace Sven with Kevin Keegan

Agree0 Disagree0

Wont belong before sven has had enough and says we are not going up. then leaves your s**t club in debt .crank

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2011 11:16:17
Forest to sign Giles Barnes and Bolo Zenden on free transfers in the next few days. Zenden will play a more central role.

Believable29 Unbelievable9

Forest to sign 3 players by tues

Agree0 Disagree0

Bolo Zenden is not a target. Not at all. This is wrong.

Agree0 Disagree0

Tell that to all the other people making rumours. :P

Agree0 Disagree0

Zenden's like 50 and what would we want yet another attacking central midfielder for?

Agree0 Disagree0

My girl works at Wagamama in town , Earnshaw was in there back from Vegas , and his girl was thanking the staff for always being so nice and was saying he is sad theres no Wagamama were he is going.

Believable23 Unbelievable7

Yeah I'm sure that's exactly what he would have said.
One of the worse wums I've heard

Agree0 Disagree0

Well there's one in Cardiff

Agree0 Disagree0

So Earnshaw puts a photo of a Wagamama napkin on twitter, and this pops up - pathetic

Agree0 Disagree0

Rob Earnshaw hasn't been to vegas. i saw him on his drive with his son and wife unpacking shoppin g from the car. hmmmmmm and i can tell you that isnt vegas but he does look set to move as he is no longer a nottingham forest player

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2011 09:42:16
talking to a certain centre back from the city ground yesterday . says he has been told forest to bring in another 5 signings before start of season

Believable23 Unbelievable9

Stupid rumour....who then

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would one of our defenders be told to buy players? :P

Agree0 Disagree0
