My friends son. Is in the academy and what he has heard from certain high up the rank coaching staff is that forest will be making a bid for Craig mackail smith and Jordan Rhodes also offering out the deadwood players

Believable11 Unbelievable13

Would be fantastic if true but I really think there is just 1 problem. It isn't!

Agree8 Disagree3

No thanks

Agree3 Disagree7

Why no thanks to the players mentioned? One who never stops running and one who is as natural a goal scorer as you wish to see.

Agree7 Disagree2

I'd be mor than happy to see these players arrive, but I hope SC is prioritising defenders and wingers before even thinking about forwards and cm's

Agree2 Disagree2

I meant no thanks to Craig mackail smith

Agree1 Disagree4

This kid said nothing cos he would in the poo for letting info slip if found out

Agree0 Disagree0

To sum up today's rumours so far:

Rumours of the takeover collapsing are not true, it stemmed from Vital and caused mass hysteria as to be honest, we're all very tense about the takeover so many will snap at anything.

Apparently the deadline is Tuesday 10th July for the takeover to be due, set by the estate and it's all going to according to schedule so far, so the takeover should be complete in the next few days, so one way or another we'll know in three days I reckon.

As for stadium talk, they do want a new stadium for us and with FFP coming in it'll be sponsored by a Middle Eastern company you'd assume, as FFP has so many holes the document may as well be written in Swiss cheese.

Kuwaiti and Algerian papers are saying Adlene Guedioura is targeted as Forest's first signing under the new owners for about £750k.

All compiled off t'Internet. {Ed034's Note - I've not seen the 10th as a deadline mate. Where a outs was this??

Believable6 Unbelievable5

Ed, according to a guy on Twitter who was chatting to a very reliable Kuwaiti. {Ed034's Note - Thanks and good summing up of the week

Agree4 Disagree2

@QADSAWIMALAKI has stated that the deal is set to be signed on the 12th of July in London.

Also he retweeted a post asking if there was a bid of 800k being offered for Adlene G, make of it what you will.

RG09

Agree2 Disagree3

The 800k was in Euro's, so about 750,000 pounds.

Agree0 Disagree1

I am a Wolves fan and just looking to see McCarthy rumours, I can't see Adlene G being sold for 750K we paid much more than that for him, good player and popular with the fans

Agree0 Disagree6

Wolves have a big squad and need to cut back and a new manager who wants to bring his own players in plus he only has a year on his contract and wants to come to forest

Agree7 Disagree0

If Solbakken will sell he will sell quick and cheap - he`s know to do that

Agree1 Disagree0

Rubbish , you can't set a deadline for takeover,it takes as long as needed,and does look like it wont happen now

Agree0 Disagree2

Sadly once the takeover is completed, we will be quoted 3-4 million to buy players such as Guediora. It used to annoy Nigel, and I'm sure it will annoy the Kuwaitis.

Agree1 Disagree0

Bids to be lodged in for luciano becchio and jason puncheon next week once takeover is completed

Believable4 Unbelievable11

Becchio is key in Warnocks plans, unlikely to get him as Leeds will not need the money once the Leeds takeover is completed.

Agree8 Disagree5

Seem to remember LB saying he didn't wanna play for Forest on more than one occasion.

We should be looking to sign Premier League quality players so that IF and I repeat IF we were to get promoted we would have a strongish team to compete like the Swans and Norwich did but that's my opinion peeps.

RG09

Agree8 Disagree5

And you got this info from where exactly

After a new badge appeared on Twitter, Fawaz has tweeted that he won't change the badge. Just a joke with Kuwaitis. As he put " won't " , sounds like deal done. And he has sense of humour.

Believable6 Unbelievable4

He seems a top guy already, He's not even yet officially the owner and has more rapport with the fans than MA and his clowns had in 12 Years! Lets hope MA, JP and SC are shown the door with a smile also!

Agree13 Disagree2

Who's jp?

Agree2 Disagree5

I agree with the second poster, he's updated the fans on matters in a week more times than the Forest board did in years, and the inspirational 'We'll bring the glory days back' really got us, me included, onside.

Just got to hope it's done soon, but reading between the lines and this morning he said 'I won't change the badge', suggests he's taken over in all but name.

Agree6 Disagree1

Playing devils advocate here, but why would a man of his stature conduct his business updates via Twitter?. Are you sure this is not a rogue account set up by some joker?

Agree2 Disagree5

John Pelling, Financial Director

Agree5 Disagree0

Have it on good authority that MA and JP will be out of work come Monday.

Agree5 Disagree1

It's Fawaz account, 100%. He only really follows his family members and his family would know it's him, otherwise they wouldn't interact with each other.

Agree3 Disagree1

The Happy Mondays! or Blue Monday, or I don"t like mondays, Monday Monday! Manic Monday! any more songs guys?

Agree3 Disagree0

Monday by The Jam!

Agree1 Disagree0

Some lyrics in a bowie classic (monday i've got friday on my mind) but can't wait that long.

Agree0 Disagree0

What Leeds take over,nothing about a take over from the club, only a rumour about some possible investment.

Agree1 Disagree0

Lol bowie classic lol it was a cure song

Agree0 Disagree0

chambers has gone to ipswich.my mate posted a pic of him and chambers on facebook saying 'good luck with the blue team' {Ed034's Note - Good

Believable9 Unbelievable1

No loss there then, the day he turned on the fans his days were numbered.

Agree9 Disagree2

Thank you chambers for your contribution

Agree12 Disagree2

He did well, granted, but these past few days in the NP he's been playing his violin a bit too much. If you're going just go!

Agree5 Disagree0

Good riddance to Chambers.
He was all for a move not so long ago as wanted to challenge himself at the top!
Well here we are supposedly awash with cash and no premier suitors for Chambers and guess what ? A raft of stories about how SC is sad to leave etc etc etc.
Do you get the feeling he now realises he may be missing out on a title charge and the money gravy train?
The sooner he is gone the better, Give me 11 Chris Gunters anyday (A genuine premier player who has always made it clear his intention to stay with the Reds)!

Agree9 Disagree5

Can I further add the pathetic over exposure of Chambers by the NEP makes me want to grab a sick bucket!
What about the takeover you muppets!

Agree7 Disagree1

No loss there could you tell me apart from gunter who the defenders are

Agree3 Disagree1

Can you post it on the sighting please

Agree0 Disagree0

Hooray ...good news for once..glad to see him leave

Agree2 Disagree2

Good - hopefully NEP can stop making his teardropping articles now

Agree4 Disagree0

Freeman, lynch, maloney, lascelles and Morgan

Agree0 Disagree3

Morgan is at Fester, rumours are lynch maybe leaving too apprently D*rby looking at him. Dont know how true that is though

Agree6 Disagree0

When did morgan come back ???

Agree0 Disagree4

Lynch out of contract and Morgan lol i hope u don't mean Wes

Agree0 Disagree0

Morgan didnt come back, he wont come back

Agree0 Disagree1

We got a David Morgan in the Academy and but he`s a centre midfield player

Agree2 Disagree0

There is also Osborn, Gorman and sebastio coming through who will be ready to make the step up

Agree0 Disagree4

Luke who forgot him already lynch needs to stay

Agree3 Disagree0

07 Jul 2012 09:29:40
Apparently the reason why everyone thinks the TO will be announced on Monday is because Fawaz said it would be announced on Monday in a Kuwaiti paper, hence why every Kuwaiti is saying it's then.

Just saw it last night and posted it because I wasn't sure why every Kuwaiti (Barring one dodgy newspaper) is saying Monday.

Believable9 Unbelievable1

Need to complete takeover so we can bring in players . Not a lot of time until the season starts though

Agree4 Disagree1

Anelka is not happy at Shanghai and is ready to join the reds revolution when al hasawi is finalised

Believable2 Unbelievable18

Really? And I take it Beckham wants to join too.

Agree8 Disagree3

He's player/coach! And making millions in China, plus Drogba will be joining him if he hasn't already.

RG09

Agree3 Disagree2

Where in gods name have you herd this, do you go to the pub with him

Agree4 Disagree0

The Bbc gossip pages says he wants to return to England now having not enjoyed his time there

Agree1 Disagree1

A few weeks ago that Adam Leven- summet on Sky Sports reckoned he might be heading for West Ham... I doubt he'd come to Forest

Agree2 Disagree1

He is believed to be on at least 250,000 a week in china,get real please

mark d

Agree3 Disagree2

If you read the article, he wants to leave China because everyone hates him. Guessing he would rather leave than be boo'd every game. I also think he is rubbish and would also be a rubbish signing, mainly because he is confrontational.

Agree0 Disagree1

Anelka would not be a rubbish signing he woul be sensational bit it isn't going to happen

Agree4 Disagree1

Yeah and is Drogba coming with him?

Agree2 Disagree0

Yeah and Pearce to return to solve all our problems as player, manager and captain!

Agree2 Disagree0

Rumoured to be on 12 million a year wages, do you really think he would walk away from that?

Agree1 Disagree0

looks like joel lynch could be on his way to derby some top journos on twitter reportig it and he has closed his twitter account is that a sign he goin to the enemy and dont want abuse from us reds {Ed034's Note - From what I can gather if he isn't at training on Monday, he's signing for Huddersfield. Derby are bring linked with every local centre back as they are short

Believable6 Unbelievable5

Lynch huddersfield chambers ipswhich talk about backwards steps for them goin to worse teams {Ed034's Note - maybe they are scared of competition

Agree6 Disagree2

Good point ed think u hit nail on the head there fella

Agree2 Disagree0

How is it back wards, they finshed better than us

Agree2 Disagree2

Seem to remember huddersfield was a league below us

Agree4 Disagree0

Joel lynch will be signing a new contract with forest. Shackell is leaving derby but Alex Baptist will fill in his position, said to be a 500.000 deal with Blackpool. I no this because I went to school with bappo in Mansfield.

Agree6 Disagree3

Don't underestimate hudderfield this season, they have got some good players their and spent well since they came up.

Agree1 Disagree0

Hope Lynch does stay as I think he was the most consitant player at centre back for us last season.

Agree3 Disagree0

Load of rubbish, Lynch deleted his account because he was getting abuse off several Forest fans, for not signing a new contract yet.

Agree2 Disagree0

That's one reason Lynch may have deleted his twitter account or perhaps he has been told to close his account by the new owners after his 'Im unemployed now' tweet?

Agree0 Disagree1

Premier League bench warmer looking at for property in the Nottingham area for his horses. money not an issue,as he is prepared to complete pay as he plays deal, he also has a history of playing for clubs with european pedigree and feels the club are moving back to the bigtime !!

Believable3 Unbelievable9

Michael Owen by any chance? I Carnt see it plus we don't need another fringe injury player

Agree5 Disagree2

He already said when he last Man U that he would not consider a Championship side.

Agree2 Disagree0

He did so he wouldnt drop down on a division in a sky interview,so its straight from the horses mouth ,lol

In Gary Birtles column today in the post it says the takeover it says the takeover is expected to be announced on Monday. Ed it sounds like your prediction is going to be right

Believable7 Unbelievable6

Ed is always right hes our leader

Agree5 Disagree3

I didnt read that {Ed034's Note - Third paragraph

Agree5 Disagree1

I believe it was Chambers column where he states take over looks likely to be Monday not Birtles {Ed034's Note - In today's post, where birtles is talking about chambers, it is the third column.

Agree5 Disagree2

Ed is not my leader everything he says is pure speculation and never as any concrete sources in a word jackanory...... {Ed034's Note - I never say it is fact. I have summarised everything that is being said. How can I be making up stories if I am doing this?? Idiot

Agree1 Disagree2

Bit of confusion here. Its the 3rd paragraph in the article with the heading "Luke Chambers: Steve Cotterill deserves to remain in Forest hotseat"

Agree0 Disagree0

Children: stop this bickering.
This is supposed to be a light hearted " rumour & banter site"

Chilax. New word btw

Agree1 Disagree0

Fawaz has just tweeted a badge which is half Kuwaiti and half forest with some dates on it. Surely this means it is completed. It was on his twitter at 12.10 just a few minutes ago!

Believable2 Unbelievable4

Legit, yes..confirmation of the takeover, no

Agree6 Disagree1

It's brilliant! It was a made up logo from LTLF (That's the reason for the 25 and 16) and it also confirms in a way that things are going alright TO wise.

Agree3 Disagree1

What is the significance of 25 and 16?

Agree2 Disagree1

25 = number of goals conceded
16 = games

This honours the last games Davies was managing us.

Agree2 Disagree1

I love this guy already!!

Agree2 Disagree1

While i'm all up for the takeover i do hope he leaves the badge alone

Agree1 Disagree0

Basically this guy JWJW said that BD was a shocking manager because at the end of the 10-11 season we conceded 25 goals in 16 matches. He became a laughing stock and it was mentioned in every new thread.

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm glad it wasn't just me thinking the 25 16 record was poor.

Agree0 Disagree1
