It has been reported that Forest are unwilling to pay Colback £50,000 a week should we agree with Newcastle a fee.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Mar 2019 21:16:37
To me 30 grand per week but then again he is a good player we need players of his quality if we are going places.

24 Mar 2019 21:47:49
No way should we pay any player 50.000 a week for championship full stop

25 Mar 2019 06:20:27
Should not even pay £30,000 a week.

25 Mar 2019 09:16:49
I'd offer him £25K a week and £50K if we get promoted. Promise him a possible route to coaching if he ends his career at Forest. He is a good player for Yates to learn from and Yates emerging is going to save us millions...

25 Mar 2019 13:10:19
I'd love to see him stay but he isn't a 50k per week player. His agent has done him very proud getting him that deal.

25 Mar 2019 17:15:44
I've said before that I don't think he'll stay if we aren't promoted.

25 Mar 2019 18:23:43
Colback is good but not upto Grealish’s standard . We have plenty of midfielders. So he either accepts whatever a good player at our club gets say Grabban /,Lolley or he goes. Who could blame Britt for moving for a better wage, one more injury to that knee and he is out vis a vis CC. The club wishes promotion without Colback it will still happen without Lolley it is a lot less likely

26 Mar 2019 08:42:09
We need to clear out the older guard in midfield Watson /Geddy/ Bridcutt sign Colback and bring in James Milner as Captain next season as he is out of contract. Quality over Quantity!

26 Mar 2019 14:58:48
Why compare Colback with Grealish? Two different types of player.

£50k per week is too much for a Championship side to be paying for one player, but then again we're probably paying well in excess of £50k per week for several players that rarely make the matchday squad. Maybe £50k per week would be doable if the rest of the wage bill is balanced correctly?

26 Mar 2019 18:50:06
SSWE, Even if £50,000 is doable it would unsettle the dressing room.

26 Mar 2019 21:42:05
If we ever get into the prem we will have to pay a hell lot more for players wages than we are now

26 Mar 2019 22:48:23
Footballers wages are a total disgrace anyway,none of us should be discussing 10k a week for kicking a ball about?

27 Mar 2019 21:53:02
Villa are paying Abraham £65k per week. Mings £1m loan was over 14ish games. Lansbury is taking a good wage for little game time. Villa's gates maybe 40k plus but can they be operating within FFP rules?

29 Mar 2019 19:12:59
We haven't got to agree fee with Newcastle for colback. His contract is up in summer. 30k a week no more

29 Mar 2019 19:40:40
Red always, You seem to have missed Colback himself said he checked with his agent, and he has another year left on his Newcastle contract.

23 Mar 2019 09:32:34
Figueiredo is out untill April.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Mar 2019 21:38:52
Does his missus know?🤣🤣🤣

24 Mar 2019 08:42:58
Good one Ff.

24 Mar 2019 18:28:06
Last time I was out for days on end I was slapped with a sex ban and had to sleep on the sofa for 3 weeks.

25 Mar 2019 16:35:35
I dream of having three weeks on the sofa

25 Mar 2019 17:17:34
I'd be glad of a sex ban as I am absolutely exhausted😏

20 Mar 2019 20:34:24
Ansarifard may be going back to Greece.

Agree4 Disagree0

20 Mar 2019 21:58:18
Good he's garbage

21 Mar 2019 08:57:54
Another dud. Seems we are going to have to get used to players like this being dumped on us - I can't see MON/RK being able to choose who they want if the DoF is in charge of who comes in. They may suggest positions they want to fill, but then have to put up with who is chosen. That's the norm, and I can't see it changing at NFCC.

21 Mar 2019 17:45:04
I've spotted the deliberate mistake bsered.

21 Mar 2019 20:53:38
Nottingham Forest Country Club?

21 Mar 2019 21:28:45
Oops. Not enough Fs and too many Cs.

11 Mar 2019 21:59:54
Ansarifard could well get the nod v Villa because he was instrumental in the Hull win but don't spoil it with the silly dives Karim, you are in the mens league now. Hope you get the nod instead of dead legs. U REDS.

Agree8 Disagree5

13 Mar 2019 09:21:39
He has to start instead of Murphy. Murphy simply doesn't have the goals in him to give us the promotion push we need, Ansarifard hasn't been given his chance yet.

14 Mar 2019 21:42:06
Well now he has and he just lost it almost bordering on a red card. We looked better in the last few minutes when Murphy was on!

09 Mar 2019 23:18:43
Did anyone else see Milosevic feel his hamstring late on in the game. Hope it was only cramp.
Excellent defender. Brilliant positional awareness.

Agree2 Disagree0

10 Mar 2019 04:25:12
O’Neil really knew where our weakness was from day one didn’t he

10 Mar 2019 10:07:08
Wague can always step in, no problem.

09 Mar 2019 21:08:23
Probably the best debut I can remember at the City Ground, Pele was superb. Not Osborns biggest fan especially at full back but today he had his best game for a long time, so well done in marking Bowen so well. Made a case last week for Bonatini and Ansarifard to be given a chance so pleased to see MON put some legs up front instead of Murphy who is little more than a passenger who never scores and way past it now. Chuffed for Carvalho who came in from the cold in style to show some class, scoring a screamer and making the penalty. And whos the new goalkeeper, looks a lot like Pants but much better. All in all we are still in with a shout and Villa is vital but do able so go for it MON and U REDS.

Agree4 Disagree1

10 Mar 2019 04:27:40
Pants is a totally different keeper now there’s not shots an crosses coming in all the time these 2 centre backs have been amazing for us, didn’t we get Milosevic on a free? If so got to be the best signing in January out of whole league an maybe prem

10 Mar 2019 21:24:58
We need to keep the DOF he's come up with a few gems already

06 Mar 2019 10:00:31
Grab an has a personal trainer, who it appears is advising him not to play. This goes against what the Forest physio's are advising. You could not make it up.

Agree2 Disagree3

06 Mar 2019 10:40:45
To which he responded very quickly to say its nonsense

06 Mar 2019 18:01:15

Give the guy a break. He is 31 and has managed his injuries using a personal trainer for a while who will know his body better than the clubs medical team.

I seem to recall that you have been questioning why our players get so many injuries? So don't you think the medical team might be part of the problem?

I know who I'd trust if I was nursing a condition?

06 Mar 2019 19:16:01
It was printed in the Daily Mail which is on par with The Sun as in that neither of which are reliable sources of information.

06 Mar 2019 19:40:37
Let’s be honest if cars that a mechanic had fixed broke down as often as our players would you let him touch your car? It can’t all be bad luck can it ?

06 Mar 2019 22:43:05
Right back to Trevor Francis tripping on a blade of grass,we seem to lose our best players to injury.
No mechanics in it just the rub of the green.
The modern day pitches and the fact they are knitted together with mesh and players wearing blades is bound to cause injuries,we are unlucky in some ways,but we have signed many players out of contract and not match fit,so injuries will happen on a bigger scale

07 Mar 2019 06:49:07
I have to disagree on that one, our injury list over recent years expands well beyond the rub of the green and signing unfit out of contract players .

07 Mar 2019 06:51:35
Ff, If what you say is true about mesh in pitches, and blades bound to cause injuries why do clubs have mesh in the pitch when it is costing them goodness how much having players out injured costing vital points, and the cost of insurance going up as a result.

07 Mar 2019 07:32:40
I remember stuart Pearce saying our pitch is too bouncy which is causing so many injuries and we wanted it sorted but he got sacked before anything was done

07 Mar 2019 10:15:29
Maybe that will be sorted during the CG expansion. Martin did mention having new under soil heating.

07 Mar 2019 15:48:28
I don’t think players had as many injuries when they were wearing proper football boots and studs. I never got any injuries wearing proper footwear.

07 Mar 2019 16:27:16
Burncross, If that is the case players need to forget about their egos and fashion status and get bokt makers to make how they should.

Their health should be more important, they would surely earn more money if they played more, i know i would prefer the club to bring in some who has had no problems injury wise than someone with a long history of injury problems.

07 Mar 2019 18:52:10
I suppose they all want to be bladerunners!

07 Mar 2019 19:16:57
S_Getty, The only trouble with that is they end up digging around only to find out they are going solo with their hans.

07 Mar 2019 19:43:01
Their is something in modern footwear and woven pitches. When i played pitches got sanded the only issue was turning an ankle. I used to firmly strap my ankles and be inventive with stud pattern to get grip but not be tripping over my own feet. Just my thoughts.

07 Mar 2019 21:07:46
Also the pace of the game has changed beyond recognition.
Talking pitches can anyone remember us playing a game at home under sir Brian on a pitch covered in snow and a Orange ball,I know we won it and can remember Larry Lloyd being foot perfect,just can't remember who we beat.

08 Mar 2019 17:09:36
It was the cup and i think it was lincoln

09 Mar 2019 09:59:09
Hope grabbon is not going to turn into the new matty fryatt

09 Mar 2019 21:05:53
It sounds like it might be a similar injury - reasonable cause for concern .

05 Mar 2019 18:38:04
Has anyone else been informed that our club sponsor has ceased trading and does it affect the club in anyway?

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Mar 2019 20:54:41
I bet they haven’t.

05 Mar 2019 21:27:06
Bet you its true !!!

05 Mar 2019 22:23:57
Not looking like we've been very bright,🤔

06 Mar 2019 11:40:38
Absolutely true saw this in racing post this morning , ceased trading at midnight last night

06 Mar 2019 14:00:49
Another bet I’ve lost 🤣

06 Mar 2019 19:19:41
I believe they have been bought out by 888 Holdings.

04 Mar 2019 22:03:39
Will we ever find out who scouted, who chose, who decided the fees, for the 3 amigos or like many things in our lives - perhaps it will remain a mystery but I think we have been sold our most expensive player that at the moment we couldn't give away. My guess like Dias, we will not see our 13 M player again in a Forest shirt.

Agree1 Disagree7

04 Mar 2019 23:00:41
The boy has a touch of class and personally think he'll become a very good player.
The problem lies with paying so much money out when your a championship club.
13 million for a kid who hadn't hardly kicked a ball for bemfica in the proper league asks questions.
It could have been worst as gongalves was supposed to be even better and would have cost 20 million.
It's a risk we shouldn't have taken,but the kid does have talent and he's not exactly surrounded by it though.
On the flip side we signed lolley for 500k and now he's worth what we paid for Carvahlo,some you win some you lose,kids in this decision tend to lose.
Still time to make a late impact and I'm not giving up,can't see it being pretty though,but couldn't care as long as it has an end product.

05 Mar 2019 08:21:40
Agreed mate,it's not over till it's over!!!

05 Mar 2019 09:50:31
Good post ff. I could tell who had written it before i saw your name at the bottom.
We were all excited about the Pertuguese at the start of the season. Unfortunately it hasn't worked

05 Mar 2019 10:51:25
I don’t think any of it matters , there is nothing sinister and no one was badly advised. Carvalho did fine under AK and would Have improved vastly, he will struggle under these two. He’d do fine in Derby’s formation. MON and RK play a different game that doesn’t suit carvalho, I do believe that I’m the fullness of time it will be a more effective brand of football in this league . I did say when we pursued these two that some of the players would have sacrificed to make it work and that will, I think play out. You never know they may be able to coach him enough to change but you have to remember he will have been coached to play a certain brand from a young age.

Best outcome will be for us to get our money back, if he goes cheap we’ve still got cash and lolley.

05 Mar 2019 13:31:23
2 star and ff79 i totally disagree about carvalaho. You only have to look at his history, which their is none. Someone tried to be clever and say they had unearthed a star.Oops big big blooper. He has skill but a poor touch. He is not strong and has no pace. Has no ariel prowess and cannot tackle. The qualities vital for this league he is missing in spades. What he brings their is plenty of in the under 23's. Maybe if we were in the prem then the way people sit off wnd allow people to play he might be different. You won't see oneil pull this type of stunt or be persuaded to do so either. It is not the lads fault he just has not got it at this level. Its an awful scenario that was wrong and its no good forcing the issue. We won't get a brass farthing for him so big dilema for the club.

05 Mar 2019 18:04:50
Fair enough Rutland , let’s hope we have a solution then because it’s more money than we can afford to squander and will undoubtedly restrict the plans of MON in the transfer market.

05 Mar 2019 19:19:16
2star i would love him to come good as you are righton that. But really has he got enough to convince the management to trust in him????

05 Mar 2019 20:31:51
It’s worrying if someone did have our pants down. Let’s hope they don’t own a bakery for their sake!

06 Mar 2019 19:31:46
Was it not only a couple of games ago fans were questioning why mn hadn't picked jc because of his talent and best attacking midfielder we have next to lolley or the fact we'd hardly created any chances since he's not been playing, give him a break he's had a couple of minutes here and their so not exactly match sharp and having been at the game we not managed a chance till jc come on the pitch yeah he cocked up but how many of the other players have a perfect game take derby we could have had 5 past em but managed 1 . As for paying to much I'd agree but I think we'll make that plus more if we get to the prem as I think that's where he'd shine

01 Mar 2019 08:56:31
Just a couple of bits of gossip fellow Reds! My daughter is Leicester City Academy physio and was at the under 23 game yesterday. Firstly, high praise for the conduct of MON, Keeno and Chris Cohen, gentlemen all, very friendly and aporoachable, especially when s he told them we were passionate Forest fans. A Leicester lad got a bad knock and they expressed their concern as to his welfare and clearly took a great interest in the lads despite the atrocious weather, so well done. Secondly, word is Leicesters dreadful helicopter disaster did us a favour because they were definitely going to sack Puell and get MON back then but decided it wouldn't look good! Lastly, chatting to the Forest Academy lads afterwards about Karanka they said towards the end of his tenure he hardly went to training at all and when he did he gave no input and just stood on his own on the touchline. Very odd!

Agree1 Disagree1

01 Mar 2019 14:36:19
Good info Stokey.

01 Mar 2019 18:56:03
Nice one stokey👍

01 Mar 2019 21:28:56
Welcome back stokey,I know you didn't like karanka going,but it was his choice and the owners can't be blamed for it and now they are going to build us a fine new stand,it's all good.
It's quite funny really because if karanka left because of the DOF appointment then marinakis has been proved right in bringing him in with the best centre backs we've signed for many years.

02 Mar 2019 11:33:05
It certainly seems like fate has intervened to bring the whole Forest family together and make us stronger. Delighted to see and hear the fans at home are raising the roof for the run in as its now about small margins and we all need to stick together and get behind the lads!

02 Mar 2019 11:42:20
Agreed red hope we have turned the corner possible playoffs the ground being upgraded happy days spare five seconds to the sadpies looks like they are going out of business!no sympathy from me for hardy
