Steven Dobbie rumoured to be joining on a season long loan {Ed034's Note - where are the rumours from mate?

Believable7 Unbelievable5

Source - Nick Marshall!

Agree2 Disagree3

If this were true it would be a good signing

Agree3 Disagree4

No it wouldn't, watched Dobbie at Swansea for last few seasons. His lack of consistency frustrated Rodgers no end of time, hence he was dropped, 1 very good game followed by 10 games worth of disappearing acts. Not good enough.

Agree3 Disagree1

Sounds a lot like Mcgugan!

Sylvain Marveaux (Newcastle) - Undisclosed
Eric Lichaj (Aston Villa) - 2.5mil
Glenn Whelan (Stoke) - 1-2mil
Jermaine Beckford - Free

Heard it here first.

Believable6 Unbelievable10

Just cus we heard it ere 1st ! Don't make it true as we will all find out in time when ul look about as simple as the wally with a brolly.... But then u prob already do with respect obv....

Agree4 Disagree2

We aint hearing anything here first because without the takeover we are into meltdown as a club.

Agree4 Disagree4

An about time we had a optimist on ere ! Calm down dear ...

Agree1 Disagree0

I am calm lad, but it seems a never ending saga, its next week then its ten days, ive been hearing ten days for the last month, we were told 'imminent' about 4 weeks ago. We face Fleetwood just over a month from now with a woefully depleted squad, just get the bloody thing sorted. {Ed034's Note - To be fair all the 'ten day' rumours are coming from people on sites like this. The only people that count is forest and they said thus tims last week that we are in a due diligence period with a group. At that point most journalists said between a week and four.

Agree1 Disagree2

Due dilligence takes a minimum of 2 weeks and can take up to 6 weeks depending on the complexity of the business, i am pretty sure that by this time next week we will have new owners and i very much doubt that we will see the usual Forest transfer ploy of offering 50p for a player and waiting for weeks on end for an answer, i think we will see transfer go through within days...

Agree1 Disagree0

Yes the club said in due diligence, as did the Al Hasawi's etc, I can't remember the exact wording of either but the point I think everyone should recognise is that due diligence didn't start on the day of the statements. They were already well into it, so I doubt it will be any more than a few days now. I would expect to hear from the club that it's completed and a press conference on a later day. Only rumours, but I've heard a possible announcement on Monday followed by a press conference on Thursday

Agree2 Disagree0

Was it Marthur who offered Cardiff 750,000 for Peter Whittingham? As I recall he was politely told to F Off.

Agree2 Disagree0

Forest to make approach for Williamson of Newcastle and free agent Titus bramble. Fee foe Williamson will be around £1.8 million and bramble free. Before you all go crazy with source, source, source I work in Newcastle Monday to Friday but live in Nottingham and I was told this today by a Geordie fan who works in my office. An enquiry has been made to Newcastle but no offer as of yet as forest are waiting for the take over to complete. Bramble is talking to at least 3 clubs.

Believable6 Unbelievable8

Glad Bramble is talking to three clubs. Hopefully, one of the other two will get him because he's a useless liability on the field and off.

Agree12 Disagree3

Lets hope it Dierby and Fester as they always seem to go after who we are after, and maybe this time it will be to our favour COYR

Agree0 Disagree0

Are you sure Bramble is Free?

michael dawson to be the first signing of the new regime.followed by Adlene Guediora.

Believable4 Unbelievable15

If this is true I would run round Trent bridge in a mankini for 6 days. Not going to happen sweet heart.

Agree12 Disagree1

Michael Dawson, when fit is an international standard player, playing at a top premiership club, probably earning north of 80k pw. Can anyone see him back with us?

Agent 279

Agree9 Disagree1

Doubt it Dawson wants to play for England so won't drop down

Agree6 Disagree0

His international career has pretty much ended because of the young players coming through e.g. jones smalling etc. unlikely even though he probably would accept a wage cut to return to nottingham

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree3 Disagree0

Joel has just renewed his tenancy agreement for another 12 months which is in Nottingham. Why do I no this? I'm his mate, simple as that. He's also told me he's signing a new 4 year deal so get that idea of him going to huddersfield out your heads

Agree4 Disagree0

If you`re Joel`s friend tell him that Tor in Norway will bring the Polar Bear Brigade to any club he signs for and mess him up:)

Agree1 Disagree0

Wayne Bridge has signed a season long loan to Brighton.
Oh what a shame!


Believable7 Unbelievable4

Phew thank Clough the 'rumours' about him coming here were just that 'rumours'. We need players that will wear their hearts on their sleeves and be proud to pull on the Garibaldi!

Agree4 Disagree1

And how is this a "Forest Rumour"? {Ed034's Note - The fact there has been a few posts on here saying he was signing for us, make is relevant to be on our pages.
I do find it a little disturbing that you got that annoyed with this, you felt the need to write a post lol stressful day?? Lol

Agree6 Disagree1

Cheers Ed

forest to bring back jenas once the to is complete.

Believable13 Unbelievable7

JJ will go to another Prem team like Wigan or Villa.


Agree4 Disagree2

Lets hope this is true, I would also be tempted to make him captain, JJ is a Forest supporter :)

Agree4 Disagree5

JJ is coming back if not on loan this season it will be the end of the season I know him and he said he will return before he is 30 to finish the rest of his career here

Agree4 Disagree4

JJ, nice lad, hope it's true. Natural leader at forest.

Agree0 Disagree0

William gallas is wanted by fawaz as new captain,contact has been made but other clubs are interested.

Believable6 Unbelievable14

Go on any other rumour site they don't have as many rumour .It's interesting tho reading all the crap people are expected to believe C.O.Y.R

Agree3 Disagree2

I'd happily have gallas as cap,he help bring the young ones on

Agree3 Disagree2

The post office in Bridgford will be doing good buisness on pension day if we sign all these old timers bring back Larry & Burnsy

Agree2 Disagree0

I'd still have McKenna back, yes I know he's not exactly something special, but at least he got the players organised and in order, something Chambers couldn't do!

Agree5 Disagree4

QPR supposed to be in the running for Gallas

Agree1 Disagree3

Give it a rest

Agree1 Disagree1

The same source (A guy who use to supply cars for the Forest lads about a decade ago) who told me about the Kuwaiti takeover (I knew about a month ago) has told me that Cotterill will definitely be leaving.

Keane, Hughes and Hoddle are serious candidates for the position.

I've been told that no players will be signed until a new manager is installed. And that the new owners are not looking for any kind of quick fix.


Agree3 Disagree2

If u want old people my grandad aint busy

Agree2 Disagree0

Is that Steve Keane? Merv Hughes and Twoddle Hoddle?

Agree2 Disagree0

Emile Heskey is rumoured to be coming to forest. he's been released, but i reckon he'd be a really good signing

Believable3 Unbelievable19

Yeah, I guess the Arabs need a Donkey or two to get to and from The City Ground.

Agree16 Disagree5

Rumoured to be coming? Source? Stop making up lies, although is does make a change from the takeover happening/not happening rumours!

Agree4 Disagree1

He would be Terrible! Why do we keep getting linked with all the old donkeys that can't score?!
Get a grip!


Agree7 Disagree3

If we signed Heskey, i'd give up! just generally give up on everything!! The guys useless! we need a 20 goal a season man!

Agree9 Disagree2

Forgot just how good miller and derbyshire have been

Agree1 Disagree4

Mark Hughes

In Talks with a championship club.

All very hush hush

Could it be ?

Believable2 Unbelievable19

Chuffin hope not!

Agree10 Disagree3

Your an absolute Time waster why waste everyone's time writing this tosh! Cotterill is staying but won't be given long, he thinks 8 games! I spoke to him in an unnamed bar last night. He wouldn't give any transfer gossip at all. He expects the takeover to be done on Wednesday conference on Thursday and he will be told how much he's getting at a meeting Wednesday night. I told him to not do a platt if it's decent money! Petrachi still haunts me now!

Agree4 Disagree6

He hasn't even had a full season with QPR yet. What a load of old cobblers!

Agree5 Disagree2

I'd put a few names before m hughes if sc goes but hope he gets a chance,whay about hoddle or curbishly ?

Agree3 Disagree6

I don’t understand why people reply to posts with such rudeness remember that this is a rumour site which surely is meant to be a bit of fun with the occasional odd bit of truth. Stating Cotterill would disclose information in a bar on a Thursday night also sounds very implausible.

Agree8 Disagree4

He's still on Holls til monday
wouldn't be in a bar in Nottm to much agro ,He keeps himself to himself

Agree3 Disagree1

You didn't see SC in a bar last night you little liar, he was at mine last night, he came round foe tea, we watched Traffic Cops and Project X. He wouldn't say anything about transfers but Saud at least 4 are coming in, 2 from wolves 1 from villa and 1 from west brim. Cheek of some folk ah! {Ed034's Note - What did you have??

Agree2 Disagree1

" Your an absolute Time waster " Am I ? I hear a rumour & post it just like you yet I'm a time waster ? If you read the post it does not say what club Hughes is talking to. Mark Hughes with money to spend would not be a bad option for Forest. But I agree there are better managers available.

Agree0 Disagree1

Think Hughes be lined up for Watford roll on the takeover being sorted you reds

Agree1 Disagree0

Zola is the new manager of watford,try reading the daily papers

Agree3 Disagree1

I tell you doubters start calling me mystic red!
