Agree11 Disagree1

Agree2 Disagree4

If its true than put a pic on than

Agree5 Disagree0

Just as well your not in charge of the spelling on the shirt then.

Agree7 Disagree0

The only doughnut is the one making this rumour up.

Agree14 Disagree3


Agree7 Disagree0

I can verfiy that the shirts are made by Nike, The sponser is "zain" group which is one of the biggest cell phone operators in the middle east. The shirts are slightly different, the collar is instead integrated all in white with one thin red stripe though the middle, the ends of the arms end with a white ring that is 10mm in diameter. Red Warrior.

Agree3 Disagree5

I thought id spelt some things wrong but hey,tell me how 2 put the pic on and i will

Agree0 Disagree2

Yeah "addidas" is adidas u shud know this if you have seen the kit as it spelt under the adidas logo

Agree3 Disagree1

I have found out we will have adidas, not sure about the sponsor

Agree2 Disagree3

If it was American surely they would spell it 'Donuts'?

Agree1 Disagree2

The shirt is manufactured by Umbro, believe that!

Agree3 Disagree1

It's Nike I assure you.

Agree1 Disagree2

This all twaddle, Stella McCartney is making the new kit & the new sponsor is some Arab sand importing company

Agree3 Disagree4

Sounds like a good sponser, can you imagine getting a krispy kreme with every match day tricket, attendance's would double.

Agree0 Disagree3

The shirt is staying as Umbro which is what I was told when I was in the club shop about 3 weeks ago and stated by someone else on here! The away short is going to be blue.

Agree2 Disagree2

It wont be umbro being as nike own the name and have decided to be rid of it.....

Agree0 Disagree2

The shirts are made y adidas ..if u google championship clubs sponsored by adidas you will see

Agree2 Disagree1

If were are going to be sponsored by a Do-nut company, does this mean that Krisis Commons,(the Scottish one) will be returning to us to take advantage of the new sponsor?

Agree1 Disagree1

Attendance would only double from free do-nuts due to everyone needing 2 seats to squeeze into.

Agree3 Disagree1

Umbro is not being done away is being sold. it is still operational

Agree0 Disagree1

Why do we need a new shirt? it's not like there's anyone to wear it so what is the point?

also, why would it be sponsored by a middle eastern mobile phone network? why would 'zain group' pay to advertise to a potential customer base of zero? forest games aren't going to be a hot ticket on middle eastern TV and the service isn't available to english fans.

Agree0 Disagree2

If you do your research pin head you'll see that zain is a part of gift gaff network.

Agree0 Disagree1

'If you do your research pin head you'll see that zain is a part of gift gaff network.'

'fraid not pindick, giffgaff are a subsidiary of O2, who are owned by telefonica europe.

Agree0 Disagree0

Lol nike? Zain? LOL UMBRO AND PYE, all these people in the know, shocking.

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly agreed a deal with Nottingham Forest for the transfer of highly-rated centre-half Jamaal Lascelles.

Spurs have beaten off competition from North London rivals Arsenal to land the 18-year-old, who has made just one senior appearance for Forest. The Gunners had a £5 million bid for Lascelles rejected in January but did not increase their offer, leaving neighbours Spurs able to pounce.

The England U-19 international made his professional debut for Forest in January, starting as the club lost 2-0 to Burnley. In March he was loaned out to League One Stevenage, where he impressed, making nine appearances and scoring in their 6-0 away victory at Yeovil Town in April.

The youngster is expected to sign a five-year deal at Spurs for an undisclosed fee, with Harry Redknapp willing to let him remain at Forest on loan for at least one season to continue his development.

Lascelles will face long term competition for a place from a host of talented defenders at White Hart Lane. The club are expected to complete a deal for Belgian international Jan Vertonghen this week, while England U-21 star Steven Caulker, who spent last season on loan at Swansea, is expected to return to the fold next season. {Ed034's Note - Whete is this from??

Believable5 Unbelievable8

Perhaps the new owners could then buy him back after the takeover

Agree3 Disagree1

Just read the same article on a forest facebook site
something on caught offside i think it said

Agree1 Disagree1

It's from caught offside

Agree1 Disagree0

Why sell him if you will buy him back?

Agree1 Disagree1

Why would he loaned back to us he doesn't get a game anyway

Agree3 Disagree0

Given the other stuff happening at the club right now this it seems vanishingly unlikely that the chairman would be ratifying this deal.

Agree3 Disagree0

All transfer's or potential transfer's have been frozen until Monday when the new owners are announced.

Agree0 Disagree3

Vanishingly unlikely?

Agree2 Disagree0


Selling the siverware for scrap. What a farce our club has become {Ed034's Note - The reportered 5m is far from scrap. Better that than what we got for bamford

Agree1 Disagree2

Clubs in a takeover have a transfer embargo put on them so how can you sell? {ed034's note - it can go through before they submit it to the fa or can be arranged for just after it goes through

Agree0 Disagree2

Potential silver ware......he is unproven and has a long long way to go. Deal worth 1 to 1.5 million and add ons. Worth taking imo.

Agree0 Disagree1

BBC Radio Nottingham and Mansfield 103.2 radio Station outside the City Ground. Do they know something we dont? EEkkkkkk Exciting times people.

Believable4 Unbelievable15

Simple answer: No.

Club know nothing.

Agree8 Disagree2

I can see the city ground entrance from my place of work..... theres nobody outside?? {Ed034's Note - I suspected that myself but allowed the post just on the off chance

Agree5 Disagree2

May well be there doing a bit for sports on east midlands tonight though, may not mean anything.. I mean.. Last week when east midlands today did a bit about how speculation was growing about al-hasawi, the woman in the news was walking round the city ground so could be nothing, could just be a bit for the news later

Agree3 Disagree2

Unless you work in a hairdressers, a cob shop, taxi/car washing service or the Forest shop, you must have very good eye sight!

Agree7 Disagree0

What do people get out of making rubbish up. I can only presume the Sheep have nothing else to do with their time.

Agree7 Disagree1

Could be a hairdresser? what bloke says "EEkkkkkk" ? {Ed034's Note - There are women that come on here

Agree8 Disagree0

I work in the club shop and can verify the media were briefly there. Hoping to hear something regarding the take over but nothing materialized

Agree5 Disagree3

07 Jun 2012 12:10:54
yes i know everyone has wrote a rumour about the takeover but......according to footy_official@ "Nottingham Forest take over set to he completed this week. #NFFC"
It may be possible then :)

Believable8 Unbelievable9

I have a kuwaiti work associate that believes its on too ..... gathering some path now .
Statement either Friday or Monday I reckon .

Agree7 Disagree6

It also may be possible that I go and get my nipple pierced...

Agree11 Disagree3

Which one? Getting the left one will hurt more than the right! ;0)

Agree5 Disagree4

There'd just a few last lose ends to sort first.

Agree1 Disagree3

Lose ends? on a nipple? ooch

Agree4 Disagree3

Unsure as to was relevance a nipple piercing has to the original rumour posted but maybe fawaz al hasawi has one ?

Agree2 Disagree2

No relevance at all but it will least till the pain goes away

Chill Out things may be looking up

Agree1 Disagree2

I've heard that Steve cotterill is on his way out with a big foreign manager coming in. A budget in the millions is expected and a restructured wage format is certain. Very good news for fans! I myself have just renewed my season ticket I hope you all do.

Believable12 Unbelievable12

Source? ..... ah just your opinion ay!

Agree10 Disagree6

I heard Roy keane or Stan colymoor

Agree2 Disagree9

Is that you Mr Arthur?....are we really serious about promotion this season!?

Agree8 Disagree6

Is this Mark Arther trying to boost Season Ticket sales?


Agree9 Disagree3

Anyone can make up rubbish claims

Agree8 Disagree3

It's neil warnock ! All the footy agents are saying it !

Agree5 Disagree9

If we had a choice (be realistic) of any manager.Who would it be?

Agree1 Disagree2

How could he walk from Leeds?
Would make him look a right idiot And LUFC fans would lynch him {Ed034's Note -

Agree5 Disagree6

Sounds like when notts county got taken over...Look what happened there {Ed034's Note - But look at man city. It's a risk whoever takes over

Agree4 Disagree4

Rafa Benitez has been linked believe it or not. Seems a long shot but would be amazing

Agree3 Disagree9

My sources tell me could be Gerrard houlier. He's still out of work but is he over rated?

Agree2 Disagree6

Fantastic news - big player budget, international manager, pulling power - we can now follow in Leicester's footsteps! Oh and also completely reinvent exactly what we did 12 months ago!

Agree9 Disagree2

No thanks benitez and no thanks to houllier

Agree6 Disagree0

If it's a big international money, my money would be on Scolari. Self-confessed Forest fan from the Clough days. I'd sooner have a proven Championship manager, such as Warnock or, dare I say it, BD.

Agree7 Disagree1

The only reason people are mentioning scolari is because he managed al - hasawis old team in the 80s and when you google al-hasawi it comes up with the team he owned and there is a big photo of scolari on the wikipedia page next to managers names ..... more bullski

Agree1 Disagree1

To the above, the is also the small fact that he is a fan of forest (scolari)

Agree1 Disagree2

Jesus, a fan of Forest! Grow up he said he was a fan of the way Forest played football under Clough and that was a long long time ago. Do you seriously believe he knows anything about Forest since!

Agree1 Disagree1

More chance of landing gerrard butler than gerrard houllier..........

Agree1 Disagree0

More chance of steve gerrard

Agree0 Disagree1

More chance of Stephen Hawking!

Agree0 Disagree0

Been doing some digging, Bader Al-Mutawa is a kuwaiti striker is claiming he will sign for Forest over the next day or so, he is part of the deal to buy Forest, Fawaz Al Hawasi will be the new owner by close of business on Friday.

Andy C

Believable6 Unbelievable16

Going on his Wikipedia page does not qualify as 'doing some digging'

Agree7 Disagree2

Good old wikipedia - very trusted source - NOT !!

Agree7 Disagree1

Apparently it's going to be announced on Saturday morning and deliberately catch us out by surprise because everyone's expecting it to be a weekday. The deal is already done and dusted tho.

Agree2 Disagree7

No he is the owner on wiki!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Agree1 Disagree2

Well forest have just released a statement saying season ticket renewal deadline has been extended.. That tells me that the takeover process is still ongoing, nothing is going to be announced very soon so people don't have to panic about season tickets

Agree5 Disagree1

Might have been extended cause so few has renewed their seasonticket...

Agree4 Disagree0

I don't think the statement re the season ticket renewal deadline means there won't be an announcement very soon - could be the opposite - Ostensibly the club could make more season tickets available, following a takeover, if supply outstrips demand. The club might need a period of time after an announcement to gauge such a demand.

Agree4 Disagree1

They say its because of the fans concern about ownership of the club, surely if a takeover was iminant they wouldnt of extended the deadline as there is still another 2 weeks, however it could mean that a takeover is going to be confirmed within the next two weeks, which will allow fans extra time to renew season tickets after the news

Agree3 Disagree0

How many times must we say? Never trust Wikipedia for football news. I could say Lionel Messi plays for Prestwich Heys if I wanted to.

Agree4 Disagree0

07 Jun 2012 08:18:56
Dont expect any news until early next week, this is from a player, if news not available by Tuesday will be delayed until Thursday, City Ground being used for dignitary's Wednesday for The Royal Visit.

Believable1 Unbelievable6

The players have not been kept in the loop regarding take over.
