Forest offered McCleary 8 Grand a week, as if he'd accept that when he said that he would like to play in the Premiership and he would most likely get more wages there also.

Believable3 Unbelievable1

I'd seriously hope that we're not offering him more than that.

We need to cut the wage bill not inflate it more.

Agree3 Disagree1

8 grand is more than fair. it's well over the top for a player who has half a good season under his belt for his whole career in fact

Agree5 Disagree1

Play for more than 8 grand? We all no he be on bench and he'll hardly play, depends if he wants to be like Michael Owen.

Gone west bromwich albion

Agree0 Disagree3

West brom dont have a manager

Agree3 Disagree3

Chairman wanted to sign him

Agree1 Disagree4

Even WBA's prat of a chairman would not sign players before appointing a new manager...fool. McCleary will go to an attacking team like Swansea , Wigan or Norwich. Most likely poor mans replacement for Victor Moses...yet another we missed out on.

Does any1 know of the rumours that we r to b taken over by the americans is anything close 2 happening. REDMAN

Believable4 Unbelievable5

Apparently it is in the final stages. Heard this from several people and is being spoken about like its on the verge of happening around the city ground

Agree2 Disagree3

Iv heard that it is in the last few stages. Talks being held almost daily between executors, SP and buyers. Dunno whether its to americans or not. Should still take a number of weeks before its around confirmation stage tho.

Agree5 Disagree3

Some news offically would be nice

Agree4 Disagree1

Do the above two posters know this for certain or from a secondary source? like how far removed from the information are you? also, is there anyone who knows about business investment who could say how long these things tend to take?

Agree1 Disagree1

I can say that my info has come from someone directly involved with the executor side of the transaction. Not going to say name obviously, as it took alot for him to tell me the snippets of news to begin with. Should be sorted soon, with just a few details/ final details to be sorted.

Agree0 Disagree3

I've been told by a very good friend, who has been involved with forest, notts and notts ccc through school for a long time. She is a notts s/t holder so has no reason to lie to me, has been right about everything she has told me in the past and has said she has been told it is I the final stages.
The first thing I asked her was about timing and she said she hasn't got a clue.

Hoppers u1

Agree1 Disagree7

Looking at Internet, 'due diligence' checks can take a few weeks - 6 quoted as typical - so even if progressing well could still be some way off completion. Agree club update of ANY sort would be welcome.

Agree1 Disagree2

It's an organized wind up.

Agree3 Disagree0

Good stuff! let's hope it goes through soon. we need the money asap.

Agree3 Disagree2

With Forest going to America in pre-season I suppose it does make you wonder

Agree1 Disagree2

Forest brought out by end off week for a fact !

Agree3 Disagree5

Big pat newby still interested in forest

Agree2 Disagree1

Likely that this is the case, but there will be alot to sort out before it can be released. Id say we'll get any sort of official in the next 2 weeks
