Now we are being linked to Adam Bogdan at Liverpool, i suppose we could get lucky and get one of the 3 we are linked to 😈

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Nov 2017 17:57:25
That’s the idea OJ -put the feelers out for two or three and sign one of them-you make it sound like that’s the strange way of doing business??

20 Nov 2017 18:58:48
Should have said hopefully we will get one of them,just to please the pedantic amongst us 😈

20 Nov 2017 19:37:38
Haha OJ-I only read your post, sorry

20 Nov 2017 20:24:09
No worries 2tone, hope we can get one as i think Smith will reach burnout with all the pressure on him, MW should give Henderson a couple of games he isn't that bad and rest Smith 😈

20 Nov 2017 22:35:04
Sooner have Ward from Liverpool?

21 Nov 2017 16:04:12
I think Ward will head to the black cats with Coleman

21 Nov 2017 19:00:01
Ward no1, well Sunderland are at the moment in critical condition, and their manager is keen as mustard.

25 Nov 2017 18:51:47
Michael Vorm out of contract soon but does he want to play or just after the last big payday?😐

25 Nov 2017 23:06:56
He hasn't wanted to play for the last three seasons,that's why he went to spurs.
We had a Dutch goalkeeper recently who had two seasons of not playing for Swansea, played for us and decided he wanted an easier life than playing so went to Celtic.

19 Nov 2017 17:04:59
Apparently the social media rumour is Vellios is going to Olympiacos in Jan. He is not being played by Forest because they don't want him injured. Surely he's just as likely to be injured in U23's games? Plus strikers need games and goals for confidence? The whole situation makes no sense.

Agree5 Disagree1

19 Nov 2017 19:29:40
Then it is probably not true! Maybe Warburton should play him and see whether his bakery catches fire?

Vellios still has the best strike rate of any of our strikers since he has been here so the judgement of the manager has to be called into question?

19 Nov 2017 19:56:41
It makes no sense to ostracise velios. Warbuton is flawed but it is his decicions that will deterimne the immeduate future so we are helpless

19 Nov 2017 22:44:08
What do you mean by flawed?
No one is perfect otherwise we'd be robots and nothing would go wrong,except someone would have to win .
He's made a decision about vellios,rightly or wrongly,but he sees him train and he is the manager and like it or not he can't please everyone,Rooney can't get in Everton side two managers agree on that one early in the season,you have to accept that sometimes more is going off behind the scenes than we know.
And no manager would or should have to explain why a player is not being played by fans?
They'd have no time for the main event,trying to win matches and move the club forward.
We are supposed to support the club not tell the manager what team to pick and he's useless,so let's sack him along comes another useless one,but then you never know if we're lucky we might just get one good enough,great strategy from the ones that are still on fawaz merry go round,didn't work then keep sacking managers not going to work now either.
Just get behind the team and the manager and accept he can't please us all.

20 Nov 2017 13:20:41
if the 'social media' rumour is true then the situation makes complete sense and is reasonable business for all parties involved . As fans we don't know half of the stuff that goes on behind the scenes (good job really!!) and if that deal is in place-good luck to Velios and let's move on.

20 Nov 2017 17:55:30
Ff79 frankly i am sick of the name velios. But one thing is for certain he has not been given a chance. Just think we may have been better with velios in this team. But warbuton has been negligent in this situation. spending strong money on murphy who is nearly 35. And on a 3 year contract. Brerton has brought little to the team this year but velios has proven at this level he is quality. A good manager manages characters simples. Look warburton nearly dismissed eric for god sake, in favour of darikwa. 5 goals from the bench pre season and not even included in the matchday squad once????? At least warburton could explain that their are issues. No he is flawed but have never mentioned sacking him. Just don't agree with a lot of his decisions.!

22 Nov 2017 00:28:16
That nearly 35 year old ran the line tonight perfectly and got his reward with a well taken goal from a great cross.
Good signing

22 Nov 2017 07:23:06
Will you please get over velios he can't score in the under 23s lol

22 Nov 2017 07:25:18
Warburton is flawed he was a city trader. his tactical knowledge is limited, plays his FAVOURITE players..leaves proven players out, need i go on?
The fans are frustrated with him as were the rangers fans etc. his stubbornness and excuses after losses when forest play badly are wearing thin, same old scripted tosh!

22 Nov 2017 07:27:30
What your saying here FF79 is quite true, but from a fans perspective, the whole Velios situation is just odd, and it's gone on for so long now, I think the club do need to say something. On the face of it we have a player that has scored consistently for that last two pre seasons, and then is dropped for no apparent reason. Personally, I also think MW failed to get the right replacements when Britt left. Murphy is too old, can't play every game, and realistically we ain't going to get much out of him over a 3 year contract.

Cummings was always going to be unproven at this level, as are BB and Walker, and it's not right they should carry the burden of scoring all the goals. We then come back to Vellios, a man who can seemingly do a job for us, but has been frozen out, for whatever reason. Once again the big issue for us is goal scoring, so I'm not surprised many fans want to know what Vellios has done wrong.

22 Nov 2017 14:20:00
Problem is he's not got a good goalscoring record,I personally would like to see him on the bench,but warbo sees him train everyday and I don't.
Things always go on behind the scenes at clubs and it's best kept in house in my opinion.

22 Nov 2017 18:15:48
And yet we are currently JUST outside the play off places!!!!
Look, we will play well and lose some games
We will play poorly and win some games
We will be sublime and indifferent, and everything in between.
But this is Year 1 post the barren Fawaz years. 5 years of getting worse, year on year, in virtually every way.
Me? I’ll be more than happy with a couple of years of steady re-building. Putting a squad together who know one another and who get the ethos.
Let’s try to give a bloody manager a couple of seasons to see a plan through before throwing dummies out of the oram again and demanding sackings.
That merry go round has been worn out, and it didn’t exactly work out well

22 Nov 2017 20:40:37
We are 7th. We would all have taken that at the start of the season and we have the finances to add in January. Flawed. .improving us might be more accurate.

I'm not sure how Velios is proven in some meaningless friendlies and we don't see his attitude in training.

Some bad performances but great league position from last season

19 Nov 2017 15:46:10
NP reckon MW will make another bid for Fulham goalie Bentilli in January 😈

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Nov 2017 15:57:36
They wanted £5 million in the Summer so we did not bother, his price will need to drop quite a bit.

19 Nov 2017 19:30:26
I thought we wanted Benjamin Button?

19 Nov 2017 20:01:42
That's going backwards 😈

19 Nov 2017 22:28:00
Still think we should bid for Mulder from Swansea to go with Scully from West Ham?

19 Nov 2017 12:13:54
Still on course for 69 points for the season. Based on 2016/ 17 that places us 9th in the table. Feels about right.

Agree2 Disagree1

19 Nov 2017 14:43:32
I'd be surprised if we got that many points.

14 Nov 2017 20:17:49
Direby rubbish Christie and Hendrick undoing all Murphy, O'Neil and Keane's hard work?

Agree5 Disagree0

14 Nov 2017 21:23:06
Next derby match McKay needs to play out wide left, press Christie and cut inside as the bloke only uses his left peg to stand on.
Murphy needs to get on the back post against him as he cannot head a ball over his head to save his life.
He is the weakest link goodbye!

14 Nov 2017 21:30:06
Ireland's limitations exposed red,to the full,It's all right grinding out and away result,but no good if you can't force the issue,quite simply they havn't got enough class players

14 Nov 2017 21:38:07
Talking limitations,think Vardys were shown tonight,not good enough at this level

14 Nov 2017 22:36:23
Only thing is red Cyrus Christie went to Boro in the summer

15 Nov 2017 11:43:30
Once a ram always a ram. Both of them are dire!

15 Nov 2017 19:27:51
Except Archie,Ohare and McGovern?
What about Ward? On that subject?

16 Nov 2017 12:09:41
Vardy is a good player but Rashford is not the one to hold the ball up and feed him, whereas Kane understand that and can do it. Also why is a big lad like Rashford taking all the free kicks? Loony idea.

16 Nov 2017 15:08:10
Cyrus Christie?? Better off with "Tony" Christie!! 🎶🎶🎶

16 Nov 2017 22:00:03
Better off with Agatha Chistie,she can tell some stories

16 Nov 2017 22:13:07
Vardys is a good player,but not international class,he plays on the break,can't lead the line like Kane.

12 Nov 2017 15:14:07
Paul Taylor we will go for a goalkeeper, central defender, central midfielder, and there could be a Premiership loan signing. He said seemed to know who it was but did not say who.

Agree2 Disagree3

19 Nov 2017 19:32:32
On top of that we need an experienced striker. Maybe we should sign Vellios?

11 Nov 2017 15:15:03
Anthony Scully is supposed to be on trial but is contracted to West Ham so he would only be a loan player? Can that happen outside a transfer window.

Agree0 Disagree2

11 Nov 2017 22:35:27
If he's on trial I would think he's surplus to requirements at West ham,so has been released to find a new club,would think if he impressed west ham would cancel his contract and he's a free agent?or they've already cancelled it?

12 Nov 2017 00:06:29
Does this mean we are lining up his partner in crime Erwin Mulder from Swansea as our new goalie?

I hear McParland has X Files on both!

10 Nov 2017 21:03:15
No dog walking yet at half time!
I hope Warbo has made everyone come in to watch how the Germans play football, especially out of possession. They always have 5 men around the opposition man with the ball and closing off dangerous areas of the pitch.

If Forest had more pace up front then playing over the top with two up front we would be awesome when under pressure at the back?

Hopefully Warbo will get them playing the same way?

Agree3 Disagree10

09 Nov 2017 08:13:14
Heard on sly sports the forest owner is to stand trial for match fixing. how will this affect forest?
Any ideas?

Agree0 Disagree2

09 Nov 2017 09:22:29
Hopefully if true we may win some games :)

09 Nov 2017 14:55:44
I read in the guardian I think it was it will have no affect on us as it's in Greek league in a way it could help us if he is forced out of Greek football we will get 100% if his attention and efforts

09 Nov 2017 18:13:54
FBB Your mate Fawaz has a buy back clause which he can exercise now he has learn't his lesson on running a football club! Ha-ha

09 Nov 2017 19:41:38
It will have no effect on Nffc whatsoever unless Mr M is convicted by the Greek courts when his "fit and proper" status to manage an English club will be reviewed.However firstly it would seem highly unlikely that he will be convicted and secondly due to the parlous and ponderous nature of the Greek justice system we 'll all have died of old age long before!

10 Nov 2017 11:24:24
Lol, he wouldn't know a thing about clause; well maybe Santa.

10 Nov 2017 18:17:15
I,M wondering if QPR were nobbled?

10 Nov 2017 20:00:23
No nobbling we did not have the same Romanian ref as Northern Ireland got?

10 Nov 2017 20:53:56
. Fawaz being investigated by FIFA and the FA for impersonating a football club owner!

10 Nov 2017 21:37:40
Carlo,It's simple,we played exceptionally well,why look at it that QPR didn't turn up?or were nobbled?.
The idea of supporting your team and watching them ,is to enjoy the experience,not pick fault when we lose and pick fault with the opposition when we win.

11 Nov 2017 06:10:51
Maybe it was a bit of humour from Carlo ff?you should relax a bit more.
The club statement about it wa that the Greek has put everything in place in case the worse happens.that doesn’t sound like a innocent man to me.if he was innocent the statement would of been there’s no need to worry as the allegations are totally false and there’s nothing to worry about.imagine having to ring the prison to ask him about day to day things or about if we can spend x amount on a

11 Nov 2017 10:50:13
Cause it was humour ,how to you think I survive as a Forest fan over the last 19 years ?
Whoo got my tounge stuck in my cheek.

11 Nov 2017 14:08:34
Or maybe you are just impersonating a Forest fan Carlo? Ha-ha

11 Nov 2017 15:06:51
Have you ever thought of being a comedy writer ,if so don,t bother HaHa

08 Nov 2017 09:47:30
Heard a rumour that a couple of championship teams are interested in Jorge grant? Personally, I'd like him to follow to trend of academy players making it in to the first team, he looks a solid player at 23, however if a £2 million bid came in I think he'd go

Agree1 Disagree1

08 Nov 2017 10:41:46
He had several chances in the 1st 11, but made little impression whereas Cash certainly did. I fear he may have reached his peak where he is now, and with all the midfielders we have at our disposal, Management might want to let him go, but he won't command such a high fee as you suggest. Crunch time will be at the end of this season for him.

08 Nov 2017 13:55:32
Goal scoring box to box midfielders are in very short supply.Although he is only scoring goals in League 2 he is still a tremendous prospect and worth at least 2m in my opinion.

Certainly wouldn't sell him to one of our rivals as I genuinely feel that we have a good outside chance of the play offs this season.

The team we put out on Saturday against QPR if they all stay fit is certainly in the top six sides in this division

08 Nov 2017 15:00:58
No disrespect to Jorge, however I think "Eddy" Grant would score in that league!!! 🇯🇲🇯🇲🇯🇲

08 Nov 2017 18:17:31
We cannot sell our young up and coming players they are our future what is the point of an acadamy if we sell our players southhampton spring to mind

08 Nov 2017 19:39:25
Looks as though he has a decent right foot for set pieces, which for me is something we're lacking drastically

10 Nov 2017 20:03:45
I find it amazing how quickly some people write off our young players. Grant is a talent who did OK in a struggling team. He is being developed at Notts County and will return a much better player.

Walker also seems to be stepping up after loan spells and my money is on Osborn being player of the season this year?

10 Nov 2017 23:07:11
I'm in agreement red,any midfield player who has already found the net in double figures after just a third of the season in the football league has to be a good player, if he carries on he should break the 20 goal Mark,for a midfield player,even in league two,That's exceptional and I don't think there's been a midfield player in any league to hit twenty ?
Edd do you know any?

{Ed001's Note - you mean other than Lampard? Or are you talking about just this season? Only it happens quite often, very rarely is it anything other than a purple patch, which is why Lampard stands out as he did it a few times.}
