McClaran 2 ask man u if they can loan cleverley and maybe bid 4 gibson berterand or kochensky 4 left back wot do u think ed red dog {Ed014's Note - Cleverley I believe said he wanted to compete for a 1st team place at Old Trafford, although with the arrival of Ashley Young he will have the likes of Wigan also chasing him for a loan deal. Likewise Gibson. I think Bertrand is dependent upon how high Chelsea's asking price is, but definitely possible. Koncheskey's wages are too high and someone like Fulham or Hodgson at West Brom could take him back.}

Reo coker training with Nottingham forest

Believable18 Unbelievable16

Funny that i was down there 2day never saw him tho

Agree0 Disagree0

No he wasnt but jimmy hasselbaink was, Steve looking to blood some hound players :)

Agree0 Disagree0

SSN Sources claim he's in talks with West Brom so dont know how he was training with Forest unless he's cloned himself

Agree0 Disagree0

Giles barnes was though.

Routledge stalling on a deal because of offer from QPR and wants to play in Prem.

Believable11 Unbelievable6

Routledge has snubbed QPR but Alan Pardew has claimed he may still have a future at Newcastle.

Agree0 Disagree0

Anyone got any information on possible sightings of Nigel Reo Coker and Owen Hargreaves around the club today? Heard from a couple of people today that they'd been talking to McClaren.

Believable4 Unbelievable10

Reo coker training with forest nothing on Hargreaves

Agree0 Disagree0

Reo C off to Baggies acc to SS news

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2011 20:00:02
The bid for Andrews never materialised because reo coker accepted the offer to train with us with view to a deal. Goodwillie may also be on his way. Big surprises to come I think.

Believable13 Unbelievable4

Reo-Coker looks likely to end up at WBA, or at least in the Prem. Not with us.

Agree0 Disagree0

Get real. He is wanted by West Brom as well as some very decent euro teams.

Agree0 Disagree0

Reo Coker is off to Baggies according to Sky sports. Can't someone offer something realistic on here, where they've actually checked their facts first?

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2011 19:57:52
just thought I should mention Jimmy Floyd hasslebaink is here for a week as he is taking his coaching badges, also nigel reo coker is training with the first team. Nobody will tell us wether he is using us for pre season or wether a deal could be done. Expect 5 signings before Portugal

Believable13 Unbelievable3

This is very true but he may not sign before the first pre season match excellent addition to replace McKenna

Agree0 Disagree0

When is portugal?

Agree0 Disagree0

My best mate plays for the academy and he says he saw Giles Barnes at the forest 1st team training base, McGugan was chatting to McLaren around a whiteboard so he's staying, camp was collecting up cones so i assume he is too.

Believable13 Unbelievable3

Yes giles barnes training, also reid looked good

Agree0 Disagree0

Your mate is right Giles Barnes did train and they showed it on BBC east midlands news. It doesn't mean he signed as he is out of contract he can train anywhere. I would give about 90% chance he will sign in coming days

Agree0 Disagree0

Camp collecting cones?? wtf has that got to do with anything and th whole world saw giles barnes he was on tv twice :/ don't make out you have connections

Agree0 Disagree0

Barnes was there but no one else new

Agree0 Disagree0

Camp collecting cones? Seeing as there has been no offer for him and he's under contract that's probably better reasoning that he's staying rather than cones. Did make me chuckle though.

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe he wants to collect them for Portugal so he can fill them with ice cream

Agree0 Disagree0

The information is probably right......but the reasoning is very weird

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2011 18:27:26
could any 1 tell me whats happend to the thabalala move pleaese

Believable0 Unbelievable9

Hes doing fine in africa, and it was king billy who wanted to evaluate him so i think he might be off the radar for brolly wally

Agree0 Disagree0

Obviously nothing

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah, he wanted a move to the premier league and thought it would be easiest via promotion with a championship club. Essentially we did'nt get promoted so he did'nt want to come anymore.

Hope thats filled you in mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

Thanks m8

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree0 Disagree0

He was interviewed on Sky Sports News earlier today wearing number 11.

Agree0 Disagree0

In the video on the forest website he was wearing number 11?

Agree0 Disagree0

Reid is number 11, according to Sky Sports...

Agree0 Disagree0

Was seen on skysportsnews wearing 11 tysons old number so untrue I'm afraid

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes, possibly OR McGoldrick could be changing number? 9 and 11 are free now that Adebola and Tyson have left.

Agree0 Disagree0

He number 11 seen a video on the website

Agree0 Disagree0

Well no cuz he's number 11 so stop lying :)

Agree0 Disagree0

Paul Konchesky will make a move to Nottingham Forest for £1.5 Million, Leicester have inquired but Paul would prefer a move to the City Ground.

Believable17 Unbelievable14

Can't say I was impressed during his loan spell here, he'd have to take a huge wage drop to be worthwhile.

Agree0 Disagree0

Haha mint reply mate

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah they can keep him premiership hardman ... championship pu$$y

Agree0 Disagree0

He returned to training today with the Liverpool squad

Agree0 Disagree0

No chance of Konchesky coming here.

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope he stays put forest will attract a better left back now schtevie wonder mcclaren is here

Agree0 Disagree0

What a load of rubbish 1.5 m wouldn't buy Lynch never mind konchesky

Agree0 Disagree0

To the above, yes it would, Liverpool would accept 2 million...

Mclaren is set to sign a very surprising target in David Beckham a former player of his under England, David Beckham was seen at the City Ground earlier and has been booked in for a medical tommorow.

Believable7 Unbelievable25

David beckham is la launching the new strip for galaxy

Agree0 Disagree0

NIce one, you've wasted 2 mins of your life writing that and made me waste 2 mins of my life writing this. Hope you're happy.

Agree0 Disagree0

Wot a load of bull

Agree0 Disagree0

LOL hes become a dad today clever youu

Agree0 Disagree0

Do people talk sh*t for the sake of it on here do they get kicks of telling lies?

Agree0 Disagree0

Isnt victoria beckham having there baby today ? what a load of tosh

Agree0 Disagree0

What a load of rubbish, mclaren did not even favour beckham for England. Beckham would still get a deal in prem so why on earth would he sign for Forest?

{Ed010's Note -for probably obvious reasons, the Forest site has received numerous similar contributions, about Beckham being good enough to play in the EPL and the fact that his wife is expecting a baby soon etc.

The thread has now now been closed.

Agree0 Disagree0

Grow up pal

Agree0 Disagree0

Stupid kid playing football manager

Agree0 Disagree0

Absolute rubbish - if Beckham didn't want to sign for Spurs last season why would he come to Forest - lets at least try and be a bit realistic

Agree0 Disagree0

Though his wife is about have another baby. Likely.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah, with his wife about to give birth he would much rather be having a medical than watching his first daughter enter the World

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah, but her waters broke on derby road, and she was rushed to QMC. Meanwhile davids at her bedside, but will be joining the lads at a later date.

Agree0 Disagree0

FOREST 2 SIGH BARNES ANDREWS MAYNARD AND 3 PLAYERS FROM HOLAND B4 NEWS SEASAN BEGINS ALSO LOANS BIDS 4 2 PLAYERS

Believable13 Unbelievable10

Your claim might carry weight if you didnt have the grammar and spelling of a 6-year-old.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2011 13:58:35
Sky Sports have said that Forest will unveil two more signings today, i it will be Barnes and Andrews. Also Jimmy Floyd Hasselbank is trying to become a coach and so Mclaren has taken him on for training in the job role, he will be with us for a season. If all goes well then he will become a full time coach with the reds. Joe Cole is another Forest target on a season long loan which i personally don't think will happen, this was "apparently" said this morning in one of the papers.

Believable2 Unbelievable9

Jimmy floyd just there for the day

Agree0 Disagree0

Tell me where they talk about new players? uhh

Believable3 Unbelievable6

Teacher, teacher big boys are picking on me..

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree0 Disagree0

If you went on the forest web site it will tell you hes only here for the day...get the facts correct before submitting s#*t

Agree0 Disagree0

2 examples? not good enough for a player who is rated at 6 million.

Agree0 Disagree0

Whose ever said he's 6 mil? Gardener has just move to Sunderland for less. You need to have a head check sunshine

Agree0 Disagree0

I have this morning had the pleasure to watch Nottingham Forest train. And if anybody had any doubts about Findley then wipe them away, he looks twice the speed of tyson and the ball just sticks to his feet. I also saw Jimmy Flloyd Hassilebank and got his signuture.

Believable6 Unbelievable2

Findley on the youtube vids looks fantastic, he reminds me a lot of Collymoore.

Agree0 Disagree0

Was earnshaw or moouse there?

Agree0 Disagree0

No i did not see them , just reid , morgan , Findley , Cohan , Giles barnes and a few youth team players No mcGugan aswell?

Agree0 Disagree0

McGugan was there all that was missing was Earnie and Moussi. Just watched sky sports news and they said in the McLaren interview that reid was just one of many new faces to be arriving at the city ground.

Agree0 Disagree0

Mcgugan was there and so was chambers and most of the squad. saw this on forest player on the website

Agree0 Disagree0

Spot on Findley can do 100 m in under 11 secs. Makes him one of the quickest players in "World" football

Agree0 Disagree0

So about 8 at training then? ok

Agree0 Disagree0

Lewis was there saw him crack a 20 yarder in mclaren looked very impressed with what he was seeing. reid looked pretty decent aswell

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree0 Disagree0

Keep watching it , it will be on very shortley i promise you.

Agree0 Disagree0

Apparnetly its all over twitter as well. about jimmy being at training ground on SSN nothing about signings though. also Giles was at the training ground apparently

Agree0 Disagree0

Hasselbank was shown in a Forest training jacket chatting to McClaren on the training ground. The presenter said there was more to follow after the break BUT I didn't hear them say anything about new signings.

Mind you this was about 5 ad breaks ago and there has been nothing since

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2011 11:08:11
If forest fail to sign main target Nicky Maynard they will turn their attentions to Billy Sharp. Giles Branes expected to sign in the next few days, there has also been contact with Bolo Zenden but nothing solid yet. Moussi will sign a new contract after talks with McClaren but Earnshaw is expected to leave.

Believable10 Unbelievable9
