NEP latest another 30 million rated lightweight Portuguese nearly man, let's get Lyle Taylor and Grosiki in ASAP both strong quick and can score goals at championship level and probably sign both for around £2 million and if we don't get promoted they would both be great additions for next season.

Another unproven player.
Scorer 0 goals but hightly rated!
Hmmmmm. sounds like mendes has a tie with one. what a joke.
Don't understand why Lamouchi isn't been backed?
Is marinakis getting trigger happy again?

17 Jan 2020 19:32:57
Grosiki yes Taylor? No
Walker is better than Taylor and if Lincoln want compo then either pay them or offer other players we have as compo.

Look boys, so far we are signing.
Sako
Murray
Gray
Taylor
Kodja
Gayle
Wickham
Now the Portuguese lad at benfica.
We don't know if there was genuine interest its just journalists and Chinese whispers.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Jan 2020 20:30:21
We'll sign James Collins from Luton after he scores 2 against us on Sunday. We will win 3-2 of course with a Grabban hat trick 😁.

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Jan 2020 20:33:20
Fawaz you don't know the deals that are happening behind closed doors so that's a bit presumptuous say SL isn't being backed.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Jan 2020 20:49:07
You are correct i don't know what is happening if anything.
At the minute he isn't being backed.
We have known for months key areas where players are required but instead of taking a proactive approach as usual forest drag their heels.
It seems we aren't serious about promotion.
We are over reliant with grabben and he gets injurered the goals will dry up.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Jan 2020 20:57:12
Has any club signed a player yet? Why are we complaining that Forest haven't. A lot of hard work going on in the background I'm sure, and our owner wants promotion just as much as the rest of us!

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Jan 2020 21:11:23
Fawaz mate at least he isn't asking for 8 players or more like karanka every window?
He only wants a winger and a striker, now that's what I like to hear, just identifying what he sees as our weaknesses.
Very refreshing don't you think?

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jan 2020 07:14:21
Nooooo. you have done it ff. the name karanka hasn't been mentioned for ages until now! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣.
You're right though ff he hasn't asked for 8 but as he's asked for a striker perhaps he'll get a large box of matches instead.

17 Jan 2020 10:20:14
I disagree omrftt- the game is on its way out due to the money and attitude of players. The changes over the next generation of fans will destroy the game-kids will not have the interest or the money to keep going to matches or Even subscribe to sky bt etc. We all support clubs because of either locality or something that dragged us towards a team (Either a successful team or a fav player) that just isn’t happening now as no players stay at clubs for long enough to gain any sort of status or following. It really is just a form of income to them and no links will ever be formed. Rant over - I’ll take my pills and chill 🤣.

A strange move by Kodja I have to say. He has a lot more in England.

17 Jan 2020 14:17:21
Thing is 2tone this is going to be "the good old days" for today's youngsters. They see this as normal. It will never go back to the man in the streets game.
Kodija to Saudi or where ever will become the done thing. I don't like it any more than you do pal.

Agree2 0Disagree

16 Jan 2020 13:41:57
in my opinion forest are missing a back up goalkeeper and a set piece specialist. carvahlo and silva granted have scored a free kick in there time at forest but they are not consistent with it. maybe a pacey winger to scare defenses because ameobi and lolley are good at being direct but don't do it with any real speed.

if you get someone along the lines of a reis nelson, obviously this is a unrealistic signing, but someone along them lines could help forest push for promotion. one more option would be bringing in a proven championship goalscorer someone like Murray someone like kodja who are proven and are known to bang goals in at the championship level. this could proppel forest maybe to the automatic places.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

16 Jan 2020 14:13:40
I think Smith is a more than adequate back-up keeper, but I agree with you on the free kick specialist. We don't seem to have anyone that scores from set pieces regularly.

The wingers are ok for me, but I feel we need a good box-to-box central midfielder who likes to get forward. When Samba Sow isn't in the team our midfield looks too lightweight. I like Carvalho, but he just doesn't seem to be cutting the mustard, which is disappointing.

First and foremost though, at least one experienced striker is a must. Maybe bring one in and get Tyler Walker back if we can.

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Jan 2020 16:56:08
Silva hasn't scored any and won't.
Cant take a corner never try and score from a free kick.

Forest now linked with Connor Wickham and Andre Gray, with enquiries made for both according to the NEP.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

16 Jan 2020 12:21:10
Gray and murry. Would be ideal.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Jan 2020 12:32:08
Also linked with El Khabchi and Marcus McGuane, both midfielders, but it's all media hype so far.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Jan 2020 18:48:55
McGuane has been agreed but as he is loaned out somewhere else till the end of the season we will have to pay compensation to his present loan club. So sort of agreed, nothing is simple at Forest.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Jan 2020 19:00:15
Can't we throw in Jason Cummins as our compensation to them? Two birds, one stone, simples.

Looks like the Wickham enquiry has moved onto "talks".

I'd be happy with Wickham, personally. Reckon he'd come with a point to prove.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Jan 2020 21:17:40
What point would that be though, that he actually does know how to score a goal?
And after only managing 18 games in 4 seasons that he can stay fit?
I really hope we don't sign another sick note.

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Jan 2020 21:52:09
He's got more than one point to prove wonky.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Jan 2020 09:02:02
He already proved that point, Ff79, on New Year's Day against Norwich. And the correct stats would be 8 starts and 16 sub apps in three and a half years, if we're being accurate :)

For me, he's still at a decent age where he's not physicially on the decline, he should be hungry and looking to make a statement. Worth a loan deal til May, in my opinion.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Jan 2020 22:52:24
Fair play sutty but you'd have to worry about his injury record?
Weve been down that road with fryatt and Hobbs, dangerous game.

Being linked with Andre Gray now and have supposedly asked Watford about his availability? Thoughts people. 🤔.

I'd be happy with that. Powerful striker who should score a lot of goals in the Championship.

So carvalaho is an important part of my plans claims Lamouchi. That ship has sailed SL and if you want anything from him you play him down the middle not out wide. However, bored of saying this, carvalaho has not the pace, strength or power to stamp any authority on a game. He has failed to push for a starting position as obviously he can't do it in training either.

Disappointed to hear that SL is still going down this road. JC is history i would rather see Mighten given the wide birth and a decent no 10 brought in. Also getting tired of the high earners and 30+yr olds being linked with us. The financial implications of getting a goalscorer seem too risky, and could bite us as our history dictates. Would rather see a hungry prospect from the lower leagues at sensible money as to be fair staying top 6 this season should be acheivable with just a tweak to our attacking options and a midfield general!

Believable7 0Unbelievable

15 Jan 2020 11:49:12
Good post Rutland.
JC hasn't justified his ridiculous price tag.
This transfer window will show how seroius forest are about promotion.

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Jan 2020 13:22:35
We already have a hungry prospect from the lower leagues. He is called Tyler Walker and would cost us nothing.

15 Jan 2020 13:49:22
Yes redcyclist. I agree but it seems he us contracted till for the season. Weird one that.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jan 2020 15:43:04
If they won't release Tyler Walker then we tell them that's the last time we loan them a player. Don't bit the hand that feeds you.

15 Jan 2020 17:51:51
Walker as found his level guys. He’s not what we need right now.
Prem beckons. We need a proven championship forward 2 preferably. We need a plan b of 2 upfront when playing 1 isn’t working. If Gayles injury isn’t that bad I’d pay his wages which would be a approx 1m for rest of season.
How much would we pocket if we get to prem at least 120m. definitely worth gamble. I’d also bring murry in to give us extra option tactically. Then all we need is a winger Get it done.

Agree3 0Disagree

15 Jan 2020 18:02:05
Redred. count gayle out he is on £65000 a week and we have to this plus he wouldn't play second fiddle to grabben.
The board knew we needed another forward months ago but instead of being proactive nothing but rumours and lousy journalism has paired us with every striker in the country it seems.
If we aren't careful and grabben gets injured the goals would dry up!

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Jan 2020 18:44:42
RedRed, SL isn't going to play 2 upfront, its not his style. So who sits on the bench Gayle who is costing us a lot of money, or Grabban who is scoring goals and is happy?

Thats why Walker would be better. Knows where the goal is and would be our main second striker.

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Jan 2020 19:40:24
Walker is a developing player. He hasn't "found his level" at all. He was never a bad player just a young one learning. He is a goalscorer. They are hard to find.

Walker will have a decent career and would be great as one of three front men - which is how many we need if we have one up front. If we get an injury then we will still need two front men.

Walker has done well in matches against Premier League opposition in the past. Remember Newcastle in the cup? Probably not but I do. He is quick, strong now and knows where the net is.

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Jan 2020 19:53:34
When he played for Warburton there was one game Walker had the ball come to him from the other teams goal area and from about 20 yards volled it straight in, it was a sight to see. I however have a dreadful memory as of who the other team was.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jan 2020 21:57:07
Think it was QPR remember the goal.
His goal last night from 20 yards was a beauty as well.
He knows where the net is and will score in the championship, which he already has.
Red red just go to a casino mate and stick your house on red, it can't fail.
Playing two up front is definitely the way forward, I mean everyone plays it? 😊😊
Lamouchi is the best signing we've made in years so let him tell the owners what he needs, more likely to to se 3 up front than two with two holding midfielders.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jan 2020 22:07:35
Rutland the answer is to ditch Silva he's far worst than carvalho.
You won't get any goals and no assists at all.
His record for clubs in Portugal shows he won't and at 27 he's not going to improve.

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Jan 2020 22:37:42
Sorry he's 26 and played his football in Portugal in league two which is like our league one or two, enough said.

14 Jan 2020 23:04:59
I think Kodjia would do a good job for us. Proven at Championship level and won't cost much at all with his contract running down. I think a creative goal scoring winger is the most important piece of the jigsaw though. In an ideal world, we get Kodjia, recall Tyler Walker who surely now deserves his chance and spend what ever we can afford to on a creative goal scoring winger, this squad lacks pace at the minute. Just look at the problems Ameobi causes teams when he's direct and runs at them, we need someone with that same speed but killer instinct to go with it. Big ask I know but that's the missing piece in my opinion.

Believable3 0Unbelievable

15 Jan 2020 04:39:38
I don’t think Walker has a recall clause in his loan agreement.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jan 2020 08:10:11
Prefer Murray to kodja and get Walker back and a no ten that can pass a ball for the wingers or forwards to run onto, make good delivery from set pieces and can score, that's what's missing for me.

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Jan 2020 09:15:46
Freeman can take a good corner and deliver well
I’ve also heard Uber Eats can also deliver well but I can’t find out who he plays for?

rumour has it glenn murray, hamza choudhury and ansu fati could all come in this january on loan till the end of the season with possibility of fati and choudhury joining permanently. Choudhury would strenghten the midfield giving ben watson some competition in that holding midfield spot and fati would give forest some better and a bit of youth down that left hand side. carvalho looks to be on his way to olympiakos on loan whcih would leave a big hole going forward for forest. luke freeman looks to be the man to replace him so far but more names could be thrown into the pot as the january transfer window is soon over.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

Fati is a 17 year old, if the head coach will not play Mighten against a tired Reading Fati would not get into the first team.
