What a great piece of business for these guys from Portugal. Almost certain to get our money back if we do not go up this season. Why?

Grealish being hawked at Β£40m after one decent season. Bowen at Hull going to Everton for Β£12m.

Let the good times roll and some more smart deals.

Agree12 Disagree1

22 Jun 2018 07:34:51
Whooaaa the only smart bit of business so far with the Portuguese lads is one on loan till end of season with options to buy and the other a 5 year contract we haven't seen these guys perform in the championship yet so many good youngsters change leagues and can't cope so come December let's hope they've hit the ground running then we can talk about money and what there worth

22 Jun 2018 09:57:28
Honest to god. For the last year or two people on here have been moaning that we haven't spent much money and getting old and used up players to join. So when we spend a little bit of money they are still moaning. I do feel sorry for the owner and manager to have these so called supporters keep bitching about these new players and the money spent. If these supporters think its so easy why don't they get off their arses and become a manger of a 2 time European champions football team.

22 Jun 2018 10:39:16
Bezman i understand what you are saying but don’t live in the Past. .yes we have a history but fast forward to the present and at best forest are an average CHAMPIONSHIP team.
Also fans have a right to moan if they wish as they have to pay for the privilege of seeing they their team play each week and it isn’t really fair to state they are so called supporters.
So in essence stop relishing past times and get behind the team and the rest of us SO CALLED FANS.

22 Jun 2018 10:45:43
Damned if they do, damned if they don't oh the joys of football lol

22 Jun 2018 11:08:28
Our history is important but I'm for the future and if that means spending money on players that us supporters don't know anything about then we need to support the manager and trust him it's his job to find these players. I'm sure that most supporters trust the manager and that's proven by 18000 season ticket holders with more to come.

22 Jun 2018 22:46:37
Hey guys you have all just been owned by Skegsjay who has reeled you in with his tongue in cheek response to the orginal post?

22 Jun 2018 22:46:26
bezman spot on mate,the way some are going on you would think they were meeting the wage bill personally,

23 Jun 2018 19:28:02
1 thumbs down. Skegsjay was actually serious! The Skeggy sun has frazzled his brain?
Hopefully he will see sense after the Summer Solstice and a beach walk with FfF799 swatting flies?

21 Jun 2018 14:22:42
A deal for soudani is close to being finalised the fee is 2 mill euros.

Agree6 Disagree3

21 Jun 2018 14:39:49
I think that is a fair price for him. I really hope he can cut it in the Championship.πŸ™

21 Jun 2018 14:55:52
Sgetty, if what has been said about him is true he will cut through Championship defences like a hot knife through butter.

21 Jun 2018 15:38:02
Where is this reported 1991?
Hope your right

21 Jun 2018 16:51:31
Reddog68 I seen it posted on Twitter by a journalist but there a few journalists saying the same thing so must be some truth init.

21 Jun 2018 17:12:43
Must be right then if it's on Twitter.
Let's hope it's not sugar on holiday in Croatia trying to be funny?πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜€

21 Jun 2018 18:37:04
According to the daily sport elvis works in asda West Bridgford. Must be true! πŸ‘

21 Jun 2018 19:02:53
Is that the Elvis we released at the end of last season ,dosen,t say much about our youth development .

21 Jun 2018 19:41:39
Take no notice of rumours in the daily sport fawaz,they all go titsup.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

21 Jun 2018 20:21:19
Ff, so you are saying that their news is just TiTtle Tattle.

21 Jun 2018 20:45:25
Well I think they make a lot of boobs πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

21 Jun 2018 20:47:04
Waac I thought for a second you were going to use the word bread in your post. Phew!

21 Jun 2018 21:12:31
FF pmsl. Thank you very much!
Elvis has left the building.

21 Jun 2018 21:22:01
Fawazbankbalance I was posting a rumour that I have seen as this is a rumour site just like other people post rumours if you don't believe it then that's up to u all I was doing is giving the information that I have seen

21 Jun 2018 21:52:53
Forestfan1991 it's important that you remember that this is also a banter site.

22 Jun 2018 08:39:17
Actually Sgetty the banter page is at the top labelled 'Nottingham Forest Banter', head over there buddy if you don't like rumours?

22 Jun 2018 09:45:44
I heard a rumour that we are going to sign. .a few autographs by the 2 new Portuguese players!

22 Jun 2018 13:28:31
RickSanchez splitting hairs me thinks.

21 Jun 2018 13:46:21
(Duncan McKenzie has reported) Forest have been linked with Nikola Vukcevic apparently on his way instead of Colback, valued at 4.5mill on Transfermarkt.
Boy looks total class for our league - Braga are a top 4 Portuguese side.

Agree9 Disagree0

22 Jun 2018 04:36:43
This lad looks real class, loads of energy, hard tackler, good passer, got a bullet long shot too and has Europa League experience and over 50 caps. I am told however that Portuguese press are saying he would cost over Β£10m but from what I have read he sounds top and imo would be worth it but do we have that money to spend or can we do deal!

22 Jun 2018 10:49:37
Apparently a tough tackler and a great passer. Another highly thought of player.

We have to be mindful though of the fact that Mendes is his agent and we are being linked with anyone he happens to be agent for.

Would like this rumour to be true. let's see.

Its the striker position that is key right now, but not going to complain about decent midfield player.

21 Jun 2018 12:32:48
Eric having a 😷 today and expected to sign for Hull with 24 hours.

Agree5 Disagree1

20 Jun 2018 23:47:10
Very little serious transfer rumours until the player contracts expire on 30th June.

The bedroom bloggers and wannabe journo's plus our own Mr NEP Podcast are just making it up as they go along to fill the time.

So on the striker front let's forget about reuniting with past players, previous managers players / targets and unrealistic Premiership targets on big wages.

Soudani and Grabban are the best names in the frame unless AK pulls off a "younger Negredo" European striker deal.

Fry and Mc Doughnut should go whistle for their not so Posh forwards unless they take half the asking price and/ or some of our young fringe players as part of the deal?


Agree9 Disagree2

20 Jun 2018 23:42:14
I think that's a very accurate assessment of the current state of play red.
Players are on their hols as well and while there's probably plenty of irons in the fire,like you say,not much will hapoen till 1st of July.

21 Jun 2018 03:43:07
Redinexile, why did the manager say something along the lines of him wanting the bulk of his transfers sorted by June the 25 th, so he has plenty of time with the majority of the players for them to get use to him and each other.

21 Jun 2018 08:30:17
It's ok saying you want the bulk of transfers doing by 25th June,not always that simple,cant see that happening now.

21 Jun 2018 09:14:47
Ff, just like it easy to say he wants about 10 new players, and a squad of of 24, one thing saying and another doing. He must however felt confident of doing so as that was what he said. He moved very fast in January so he is capable of doing it.

21 Jun 2018 10:14:04
It's the outgoings that might be causing problems as we can't keep signing players without addressing the balance?
Only put one question mark,don't want to be pulled up for an English lesson?????????πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

21 Jun 2018 11:01:39
We won't know much about outgoings as well until after June 30th. Lol Ff799, 2 separate statements require a semi-colon/colon between them not a comma which can separate phrases or clauses within a sentence. He he, only kidding, most grammar and punctuation is just a matter of choice anyway.

21 Jun 2018 11:15:08
Top marks for that Ff.

21 Jun 2018 12:37:00
Things will likely be happening behind the scenes, contact being made with clubs and agents but with many players on holiday and also often contracts may have certain clauses that kick in on July 1st too so some clubs and/or players won’t want to start real talks and deals until then (including us) I expect Karanka will be checking on potential availability of some players and getting ideas of fees needed and Forest staff will be looking at it but nothing will happen until July but I do expect us to move fairly quickly then.

20 Jun 2018 14:13:48
The Mirror is saying we are looking at Bamford, Marriott and Waghorn from Ipswich.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Jun 2018 15:01:13
Now that's just silly.
Mirrors don't talk.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

20 Jun 2018 15:04:35
Bamford i think is being linked due to having worked with the manager before, Peterborough's owner has said no bids accepted for Marriott yet, and Waghorn is a new one.

20 Jun 2018 15:08:57
We are linked to every Tom dick or Harry just get 2 strikers in I'll be glad when the window closes it's doing my heading everyday being linked with someone different

20 Jun 2018 16:24:11
If the Harry you mention is Kane then I will go with that.

20 Jun 2018 16:42:44
Are you there 2tone? Do you reckon it's the mirror in the bathroom?

20 Jun 2018 16:47:09
On "Reflection" 79 that's quite funny!!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

20 Jun 2018 16:52:38
Real wit sgetty.

20 Jun 2018 17:07:01
Don,t need anymore Dick,s ,haven,t we had more than our share ,

20 Jun 2018 17:41:45
Who is the man in the mirror !!πŸ˜‚

20 Jun 2018 18:27:15
We've had more "knobs"than the door store!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Š

20 Jun 2018 19:07:32
How things have gone ,think we,ve broken 3 mirrors over the last 21 years !

20 Jun 2018 19:10:59
Don't knock it!

21 Jun 2018 11:03:47
I didn't realize Bamford, Marriot and Waghorn all played for Ipswich. They ought to have done much better last season!

21 Jun 2018 12:17:22
They probably only managed to get their provisional tractor licence!

19 Jun 2018 20:19:32
How true it is i can not say but i have seen that Hull have agreed terms with Eric, but can not agree a fee with Forest, the fee Forest want is Β£400,000.

I can not figure out how they are thinking, Eric although never sensational he is a consistent decent experienced Championship defender with a year left on his contract, and they do not think he is worth Β£400,000.

Max Clark has very little Championship experience has let his contract run out and they want Β£1m in compensation.

Agree4 Disagree0

19 Jun 2018 21:23:58
It's called business win.
Both sides playing hard ball and trying to get the best deal.
Leave it to the money men,If it happens it happens if it don't? Then move on to the next target.

19 Jun 2018 21:34:30
They have seem our owner splash the cash so they now think that they can take the mick! Allam is your archetypal businessman!

19 Jun 2018 21:52:16
Sgetty,Your name is bad enough to spell without you spelling PayPal wrong?πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„

19 Jun 2018 22:09:37
Ff, asking for Β£400,000 for Eric is hardly playing hard ball by Forest in my opinion but i understand your point.

19 Jun 2018 23:27:38
To date, the owner hasn't splashed any cash, we have a loan player, a freebie and Carvalho whos 13m transfer is being paid over 5 years, so just under 3m per year.

20 Jun 2018 01:30:12
Considering that Hull are still receiving parachute payments, in the scheme of things Β£400,000 isn't much.

20 Jun 2018 05:57:49
Gazzared so do you think every other club pays big transfer fees in one hit then?think you’ll find most transfers are paid in instalments,if some on here were around when the water into wine miracle was done they’d be complaining about the vintage!

20 Jun 2018 08:05:45
Stevie - I think you've misunderstood my point. Sgetty made the point that we've splashed the cash, but in reality that isn't true. If anything well done Marankis for doing sensible business.

20 Jun 2018 09:50:04
Gazzared. I think you may have misunderstood my point. I was trying to look at things from the perspective of Mr Allam

20 Jun 2018 10:43:36
And Mr Allan won't be stupid enough to think that Forest have just gone out and spent 13m on one player outright. So he has no reason to believe we are "splashing" any cash.

20 Jun 2018 11:25:16
Gaza merely pointing out that according to your post nobody is splashing the cash unless all the money is paid upfront, whereas I believe that is not normal in the game

20 Jun 2018 12:05:17
Stevie f, i may be wrong but i think GazzaRed is trying to say, as the cost of the Portuguese lad will be spread over his five year contract and he is the only expensive player we have signed then we have not splashed the cash as such, it is not as if we have brought in 4,5,or 6 expensive players in, not as yet anyway.

20 Jun 2018 12:35:15
You're right Stevie, think we're getting wires crossed, definitely normal in the game nowadays to spread costs over many months or even years in the case of Carvalho. Its very clever business as only 3m max has been paid out for the player to Benefica until next year so if the move does not work out, we're still well within FFP and can sell him on and pay all, if not the majority of the money owed to benefice. So what seems like a big transfer fee, the transfer itself is quite low risk.

20 Jun 2018 12:38:49
Im with team Stevie on this one :)

20 Jun 2018 17:01:36
Surely as a club we have more spending power than we have had for a few years and prospective vendors will be aware of this and as a consequence will attempt to over inflate their asking price for players they are looking to sell to us.

21 Jun 2018 10:06:17
2tone does that make you gangsters?

19 Jun 2018 18:40:46
Got a mate who works at the Porsche garage and pantillimons car is currently in their for repair meaning he’s probably still living in the area or potentially moved back?

Agree0 Disagree2

19 Jun 2018 19:34:08
Are they putting a sun roof in so he can poke his head out?

19 Jun 2018 19:53:39
Which Porsche garage?theres plenty about.

19 Jun 2018 20:15:46
Having the drivers seat moved in to the back to stop him dad driving over the steering wheel.

19 Jun 2018 20:24:58
Hope the groundsmen gets his tent shifted from the"area" before the season starts?
Don't want a yellow patch?πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

19 Jun 2018 21:35:39
Carlo LMFHO.πŸ˜‚

20 Jun 2018 02:21:01
Apparently he said it isn't "handling very well". the mechanic replied "bit like you mate!!!" πŸš—πŸš—πŸš—

20 Jun 2018 17:04:08
I think I'd have to go up through the gears to be as funny as you

19 Jun 2018 09:47:17
Hull want Β£1m for Clark in compensation, Eric for Max or no deal?

Agree4 Disagree1

19 Jun 2018 11:34:12
Might be worth taking it to a tribunal

19 Jun 2018 17:50:16
I think that there was mention of tribunal when the possibility of a transfer was first reported.

19 Jun 2018 20:42:43
should be a bit of leverage with Lichaj’s imminent departure to Hull. I understand Forest are looking for Β£400,000

19 Jun 2018 09:38:16
Bouch has been training with our owners other team.

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Jun 2018 12:51:55
Probably wants to get a couple of weeks pre pre-season training in before we start. He prob knows that up until Jan will be his last chance saloon.
