I spoke to a member of the boro board yesterday in a totally unrelated context. He told me that AK has called goalkeeper coach Leo Percovich to try and bring him to the club. he has worked with Real Madrid, Brazil and france national teams. He did suffer a tragedy over Christmas, losing his daughter in a car accident so the phone call could have been related to that but he seemed to think he will be joining our staff. He is loved by the fans and the club at Boro so would be a great addition.

Very sad news, he needs time to grieve.

10 Jan 2018 20:33:58
Dowell staying.
Good news ?

Agree13 Disagree2

10 Jan 2018 20:49:03
If true yeah, could do with the extra talent and firepower for the remainder of the season if possible

10 Jan 2018 20:51:55
I'd say so yes. The few posters that complained He's keeping Clough out of the team may disagree but Sunday proved they can both start even though Clough looked lost on the left.

10 Jan 2018 20:58:49
What's the question?

10 Jan 2018 21:05:27
Imo great news but if he's not performing Clough and Osbourne can do his role as attacking midfielder probably Cashy as well. That,in my book,is good competition and should the lad on his toes!

10 Jan 2018 21:05:45
My question is Gazza does everyone think this is good news ? I know some think KD has limited progression of clough etc.

10 Jan 2018 21:45:41
As long as he learns that his team mates tend to play in the same colour as he does and not the oppositions colours.

10 Jan 2018 21:59:21
Clough not good enough at the mo.
Not seen him have a good game since he’s been here. Was the star at Bolton but out of his depth at Forest.

11 Jan 2018 01:43:36
Clough did ok on Sunday on left but he hasn’t played enough so his touch was heavy, give him some more game time to sharpen up. I think him and Dowell behind a striker (Brereton being my choice though Murphy too) can work but can always push Osbourn up to left attack and bring Bridcutt in. Good news we have Dowell for rest of season as he has movement and vision others don’t, Cash, Oz and Bridcutt are all work horses and rely on energy but Dowell pulls defends, creates space and plays clever balls that split defence and we don’t really have others who can do that as consistently or as well.

11 Jan 2018 07:38:40
Clough is an odd one, when I used to see him play for Bolton I was very impressed and believed he belonged at a higher level. However I've not got that opinion of him since he's been at Forest. He has had a good crack at the whip pre KD and didn't show too much. Hopefully he'll kick on under AK. I think it's a confidence thing with him, he really needs to back himself more.

11 Jan 2018 07:54:54
I don’t doubt that Kieran Dowell is a fantastic player with great technical ability but we have Zach Clough. Clough showed glimpses of what he could do on Sunday, drifting in from the wing and carrying the ball up the pitch. I’d say karanka needs to give clough a chance and if he doesn’t perform then we have Dowell to fall back on.

11 Jan 2018 10:38:32
Clough needs to do an Osborn: put on muscle, don't get pushed off the ball, increase pace and learn to tackle, and get back to help defenders. Then he might get into the starting XI.

11 Jan 2018 11:55:21
Osborn muscle?
You wouldn't want to bump into him down a dark alley? He could get trod on.
Seen more muscle on a chicken leg.😀😀😀

11 Jan 2018 11:53:35
Friends who are Everton fans want him back, I've told them he's not ready for the Prem. Finishing the season for us will give him a good grounding, getting on the bench and first team minutes at Everton is up to him. Looks like he is still 'growing up' to me and hopefully he plays even better for Forest, for the rest of the season.

11 Jan 2018 21:41:47
The simple reason for Clough not playing is in fact Kieron Dowell. He’s so good that he’s keeping another good player out of the team.

Clough scored four goals in about 12 appearances last season, assisted with a few too.

Great that we’ve got Dowelll unto the end of the season though. Lucky to have him.

10 Jan 2018 13:01:41
Back to the serious business of the league. Does anyone think AK will make many changes v Villa? Worrall suspended, so Mills or Fox as a straight swap? Does he give credit to the team who played so well or stamp his authority on the squad from day 1? Interesting dilemma. Regarding transfers, I don't expect any movement for at least a week. Big boys will start spending soon, then we'll get the trickle down effect. Result for Sat? Honestly take a draw now but hope to win 2-1, didn't Villa beat Bristol City 5-0 recently, tough league. 😐.

Agree5 Disagree0

10 Jan 2018 13:43:04
Tough one to call, everyone who played on Sunday deserves to start but i suppose AK will want to stamp his mark on the team but i think we will beat villa with confidence high and the new manager syndrome

10 Jan 2018 14:44:23
He'll probably listen to what Brazil has to tell him about the squad,then see how training goes.
Barring injuries can't see much change in team selection.

10 Jan 2018 18:26:55
In my opinion all A K will do is reorganise the team to play his way.

Any team that did as well as the lads did in the Cup deserve to start.

11 Jan 2018 17:46:57
AK generally played a 4-2-3-1 or 4-4-1-1 which is pretty much what we have been playing so doubt much will change.
I am hoping Fox is fit to replace Worral as I personally Mills is not good enough for Championship any more and is too slow and I think he is trying the Andy Reid diet of late.
I guess the only other change could be Bridcutt could come back in depending on how Vaughan is feeling or if anyone has a niggle or will AK try Carayol who he knows from his time at Boro, it would be very harsh if anyone who played Sunday is left out unless they have a knock or suspension.

10 Jan 2018 12:38:47
does anyone know from the footage shown at the academy this morning if that is also a new guy with him?

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jan 2018 13:22:11
Thats fitness coach Carlos Cachad, who has worked with AK the past.

10 Jan 2018 15:04:08
thanks Dazza60, wonder who the backroom staff will be?

11 Jan 2018 12:57:51
I spoke with a member of the boro board yesterday in a totally unrelated context. Apparently AK has had a phonecall with Boro goalkeeper coach Leo Percovich. He has a fantastic CV and has helped boro keep numerous clean sheets. Worked with Real Madrid as well as France, Brazil and Uragay national teams. He recently lost his daughter in a car accident over Christmas so the phonecall could have been related to that but my contact seems to think he will be arriving at the city ground shortly

11 Jan 2018 12:59:04
Goalkeeper coach Leo Percovich had a phonecall from AK 2 days ago so could potentially be joining our staff. Great CV, Real Madrid, Brazil and France national teams.

10 Jan 2018 12:35:52
Ryan Yates has signed a new two year contract with the club after impressing out on loan at County. Could have a huge future with the club.

Agree5 Disagree1

10 Jan 2018 13:46:21
I'm pleased about that :)

At least it prevents us having to sell him because he only had 6 months left on his contract. That would have meant us pulling him from county and despite what county supporters think. We do actually want them to do well :)

Hope he can continue to progress :)

10 Jan 2018 16:23:18
Looks like he's moved to Scunny. :/

Disappointed with that but I guess it'll be good for his development and more money for the club.

10 Jan 2018 16:40:23
He's only going to scunny on loan,signing new three year contract with forest.

10 Jan 2018 20:07:55
Yes, I know.

Disappointed that he's not at Notts. I rather enjoyed seeing the forest lads doing well over the river.

I hoped we were building a good relationship so we could loan out more players and benefit as a city.
If they don't win promotion we will be blamed and they might be partially right.

10 Jan 2018 20:29:04
Another good stepping stone for Yates though,up another league with a side pushing for promotion.
I know Notts fans rate him highly,but the lad wants to make it with forest and this will be a good move and test for him during his development.

10 Jan 2018 20:31:07
Scunny are League 1 so is a step up guess if he makes the step up there and impresses like he has done in League 2 for County then he might be given chance next season for Forest!

09 Jan 2018 23:37:19
I've heard from a reliable source in Middlesbrough that Karanka wants to take Adam Clayton and Patrick Bamford to Forest. Both are not getting games and were both important players under Karanka during his spell there. Looks like a loan could be beneficial to both clubs as Pulis wants to trim the wage bill at Boro'

Aitor also has a CB at the top of his wish list, despite him not wanting Worrall to leave at any cost.

Agree5 Disagree1

10 Jan 2018 09:33:13
Isn’t he arriving today and meeting the players for the first time? Not before nipping to boro to tell people all about his transfer targets though eh? 😂

10 Jan 2018 10:17:34
No chance.Pulis will want to keep his squad and add this January. Lazy journalism!

10 Jan 2018 11:25:58
Reliable source? What the Yorkshire post and Northern Echo who are both running the story. Lazy journalists as usual link new manager with old clubs playing staff.

10 Jan 2018 14:47:10
I’d heard from a Boro’ fan that gets good info, that AK enquired about Clayton and Bamford yesterday, before even meeting the Forest squad.

Then again, I have since seen a number of reports linking numerous Boro’ players. Two of which are also Clayton and Bamford. I was told exclusively these players and not the others from the report?

So in fairness, it remains to be seen what / if any truth there is in this or if it is just second hand info from lazy journo.

Either way, I’d love to see Clayton and Bridcutt in front of the defence, may stop us conceding.

10 Jan 2018 20:08:08
We was always going to be linked to 'boro players. Always happens when a new manager takes over at a club. Lazy journalism as per usual. Until anything is signed take the reports with a pinch of salt.

09 Jan 2018 22:50:55
Read online Jason Cummings is a 1 mill target for rangers.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jan 2018 23:06:03
Rangers have not got £1m to buy a player the club is running out of cash and will be selling this Jan. Fortunately we will not now be buying their cast offs!

09 Jan 2018 22:36:05
Hot news straight off the press new incoming purchase and it Involves Eric our 2 goal hero he's got his Dog and it's been named Gunner.

Agree7 Disagree0

09 Jan 2018 21:47:47
Brighton and burnley are after Worral for around 10mill
Hope he stays.

Agree1 Disagree1

10 Jan 2018 20:08:49
You forgot one key word. 'allegedly'

09 Jan 2018 19:14:25
Just read that Cummings is a 1 million pound target for rangers but doesn't want to leave if AK will play him.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jan 2018 19:44:39
Ed007 said they can not afford it.

09 Jan 2018 19:45:28
For a million quid I would give him a piggy back to Glasgow.

09 Jan 2018 20:10:04
Give me a million quid and is take you both.😂😂😂

09 Jan 2018 20:18:32
They only want to stump up a tenner as down payment and pay the rest in instalments.

09 Jan 2018 20:23:06
Very funny FF79. I would rather give the dosh to AK. He would spend it wisely.
You can take Hobbs if you like. I will pay the bus fayre. Cheers mate.

09 Jan 2018 20:31:03
Not without tonto wouldn't want to be the "lone ranger"taking Hobbs up to Glasgow,he's bound to be sick.😂😂😂

09 Jan 2018 21:35:29
Jack Hobbled. That is all.
