list of centre backs forest are interested in
leon barnett
george elokobi
gabriel zakuani
Michael Mancienne

dont know the order of preference, just the names ive heard that we are interested in

Believable6 Unbelievable5

Mancienne, playing in the bundesliga?

Agree4 Disagree0

Elokobi ? short (but hench) left back ?

Agree3 Disagree0

Elokobi centre back?

Agree3 Disagree1

Elokobi is a Left Back.

Agree4 Disagree1

Elokobi can play at centre back

Agree2 Disagree3

So can Moussi - but are they good - NO

Agree2 Disagree2

Lies, Lies, Lies. Mancienne is a right back and Wolves are reportedly offering him a deal already.

Agree3 Disagree2

Mancienne is a cb but can also play RB but doubt we will be after him

Agree0 Disagree0

Elekobi has played better for wolves when he is at centre half. Wolves also deny link to Mancienne although he was supposed to be playing well for hamburg the 2nd half of last season.

Agree0 Disagree0

Mancienne can play centre back,right back,and centre midfield

My opinion but from what I've seen today on Twitter and other sites we'll be taken over completely, signed on the dotted line, on the 10th July, and it'll be officially announced on the 12th July. Here's hoping!

takeover to be completed by tuesday mid day

Believable7 Unbelievable11

You said Monday, can you stop making it up, an only post when it is going to happen

Agree9 Disagree2

It will happen when it happens so just wait and quit with the guessing games

Agree1 Disagree7

East Midlands Today have been invited to the CG tommorrow so I doubt its Tuesday bod.

Agree5 Disagree6

It dont mean it will happen you div

Agree0 Disagree4

That could be for anything

Agree1 Disagree1

That could be for the japan game for all we know

Agree2 Disagree1

It will be completed on July 12th in London! I stated this earlier if you look further down the rumour page!


Agree0 Disagree3

Look it will happen when it happens, hopefully and most likely this week, we needn't worry. Let's concentrate on signings, and whether Stevie C is still in the job

Agree2 Disagree1

Where u get 12th from

Agree0 Disagree1

12th was indicated on twitter by one of the guys close to Fawaz


Agree1 Disagree1

Its over when the fat lady sings!

Beware of 3 wise men from the east bearing gifts!

Keep hearing 'Martin Crainie' to Forest. Anyone care to shed any light on this? He's a free, that much is certain - don't think he's a bad player either

Believable6 Unbelievable6

Heard was a good player made a good partner alongside keough is a poor side

Agree2 Disagree1

I know his missus is a milf!

Agree5 Disagree1

Can we sign mrs milf then? might make saturdays much more entertaining

bradley wright phillips will be joining us, and curbishley to be named boss on wed next.

Believable3 Unbelievable8

Tell us how you know this which source or is it tea leanes FTID

Agree2 Disagree1

Curbs gets a nose bleed anywhere north of Watford, been out the game too long IMO.

Agree5 Disagree1

Doesn't matter. Best unemployed manager out there

Agree2 Disagree6

If thats the case why is he unemployed and for such a long time now?

Agree7 Disagree2

So Harry Redknapp isn't the best unemployed manager out there? Get a grip.

Agree9 Disagree3

Best unemployed manager your joking pep Guardiola now he has left barca and capello cyruff even George grahram is better than curbs

Agree6 Disagree3

Bloody hammer at heart, he can go blow his bubbles elsewhere!

Agree6 Disagree2

Rednapp has to be the most overrated manager employed or unemployed!

Agree8 Disagree10

Best unemployed manager out there as far as Forest are concerned is Billy Davis. Only my opinion thou!


Agree8 Disagree8

RG09 - have to disagree there;

Billy has no where near the best record compared to other unemployed managers. Has he got more promotions to the Prem than Mick McCarthy? BD has made himself toxic with his bitching and moaning despite being given money and offered many potential signings (Lansbury for example)

I think Curbishley has put himself in a similar position. Since suing West Ham I think many chairman would be wary of taking him on

Agree5 Disagree1

That is a fair point I suppose, don't fancy Mcarthy thou, we got Adlene while MM was in charge at Wolves and IF he may not want him at Forest??


Agree2 Disagree0

Mick McCarthy to be lined up as new manager of Forest #nffc

Believable5 Unbelievable17

Id like to c hoddle come in if sc goes as he got alot of yonng talent at his acadamys we could tap into !! soz for bad spelling


Agree4 Disagree10

As a wolves fan can honestly tell you that you don't want Hoddle. Most boring football i've ever ha to endure at molineux. If you get Mick he will gaurantee promotion given time. Just need to move on when he has achieved the objective.

Agree5 Disagree3

takeover will be completed at 1pm mon. expect 2 mega signings, none of which have been mentioned on the site so far, but are mega! exciting times on the way folks. coyr.

Believable7 Unbelievable16

Hope so

Agree6 Disagree1



Agree3 Disagree4

Come on spill the beans then!

Agree3 Disagree3

I think you may be right in terms of signings. But i dont think their will be a takeover tomorrow

Agree2 Disagree5


what though is a mega signing?? old star! on 50K a week? no thanks. need to get players that will be good at palace on wet night in feb, not on a sunny day in August & then dissapear....

Agree6 Disagree2

Spoke to Mark Arthur this afternoon and he has told me he is out of a job tomorrow;i have asked him if he can tell me anything about the takeover many times but this is the first time he has told me anything

Agree2 Disagree3

....well if you say ma is out of a job then i believe you...not!!

Mick McCarthy being lined up to replace Steve Cotterill. It was thought Cotterill would be given time by the Al-Hasawi family but this is looking increasingly unlikely. Paldini also inline to become new chairman. Takeover set to be completed Monday.

Lynch is set to be approached by Derby but is currently in talks with Huddersfield

Believable6 Unbelievable14


Agree11 Disagree5

Mick McCarthys style of football went out with the dinosaurs! Hope this isn't true. If Cotterill goes at least get the best applicant for the job.

Agree12 Disagree4

I know Paladini's son and he said his dad had been involved with the takeover and was hopeful of being part of the Club.

Agree2 Disagree10

I agree was talking to ex forest player saturday night in pub in chillwell notts and he said keep ur ears open on monday, fingers crossed hey and lets get some good goal scorers and defenders lined up.A new season just on the horizon lets blast the league.

Agree3 Disagree3

Can't understand this love of MacCarthy. His teams, while initally gaining moderate success, then wither, they always paly hoof-it style football and he's a boring old Yorkshireman (nothing wrong with Yorkshireman I have to say.) I think if Cotterill had been given half the chances that Mick has enjoyed, he'd be twice the manager.

Agree9 Disagree6

Fawaz already said paladini is nothing to do with forest

Agree8 Disagree4

If Paladini is put in as chairman then surely Peterbrough will put in a complaint to the FA for tapping up Ferguson? Especially after Fawaz said he had nothing to do with the family!?


Agree10 Disagree1

Anyone would be better than Marthur ! I'd welcome him NO ONE THAT'S NO ONE can be worse than what we got can they ?

Agree2 Disagree2

10.25 early to be pissed

Agree0 Disagree3

Your source is The People newspaper...? !

Agree2 Disagree2

Have the owners not come out and said palladini is not involved??

Agree2 Disagree1

Can't see why anyone wants McCarthy his football does not suit forest! And as for his rep of getting teams promoted didn't megson and kinnear have similar cv's look how they worked out! He isn't right and it wont work out

Agree7 Disagree1

Clearly the person who said you cant get any worse than Arthur hasnt seen the four year plan. Scary stuff.

Agree1 Disagree0

Wolves fan here, mad mick played some great attacking football the season we got promoted. Like many players once you get promoted he is out of his depth.

Agree4 Disagree1

Joel will not be leaving Nottingham Forest, you lot created this yourselves, not joel. He'll be signing a new contract after the news is officially announced tommorrow. I no this because he's my mate, as in last night we had a ads night with dominoes pizza/ coke and a night on the Xbox. Cant believe the assumptions some of you come up with. Btw he hates derby county and huddersfield is a big no no for him.

Agree5 Disagree1

They didn't say he was nothing to do with the club, they just said he had not had their permission to approach Ferguson

Agree1 Disagree1

The Kuwait TV sports reporter Fahid Al ibrahim - think thats right first broke the story weeks ago. He is tweeting - all done in 72 hours, he will have information and pictures.

Believable9 Unbelievable3

Saw that last night. Leeds fans don't like it when we reported Fawaz was buying Forest instead of Leeds.

Agree2 Disagree2

Sorry mate but Leeds fans don' t care about Fawaz one bit, we just want anyone but Bates.
