We are after John Bostock, ex Palace and Spurs midfielder.
SL wants at least 5 more additions to make us promotion contenders.
He is making some decent signings, good feeling for this season (sorry to be positive again 79 but I'm sure you can find a few negatives in there)

Reddog. I've not seen or read anything about Bostock that makes me think he's a good signing.
Can you enlighten please.

Journos link us with everybody and anybody. I think most imports will come from abroad.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jul 2019 13:23:20
I'll go all out here and suggest that 100% of imports come from abroad.

Would anyone like to put a 50 on it?

Agree2 0Disagree

21 Jul 2019 13:27:18
Think we are due a good season?
We've had so much turmoil, injuries, sackings, etc. it can only get better with free flowing attacking football, solid defence, strong skilful midfield, and leathal strike force. not much to ask is it?
😏😏😏.

21 Jul 2019 14:25:21
Sorry Gazzi, only what I have read in the report. Looks to me like a big strong midfielder, possibly a replacement for Geddi but know very little about him
6'2" and 27 years old and has played for England up to U19s is all I can tell you.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jul 2019 15:01:39
Big strong midfielder would be a bonus. So perhaps. Thanks.

Apparently we've offered Hernandez a deal?

20 Jul 2019 16:33:35
Not on the sort of money suggested i would not have thought. Good luck to him if he does join us.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 16:49:52
Hope not, too injury prone.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 17:10:12
Burncross, Yet people wanted Byram, you can not get much more injury prone then him.

If Hernandez does join us, his contract needs to take into account his injury record by getting less actual wages but bigger bonuses based on appearances, and goals.

Agree4 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 21:34:05
If have a punt on him!

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jul 2019 13:31:38
Id take him on a free on 1 or 2 year deal. Still only 28 and a great scoring record in championship.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 14:23:13
We are linked with abel hernandez striker who is a free agent. used to play for hull a few years ago. he got released by cska moscow because of his injury problems perfect player for us then lol.

Believable2 0Unbelievable

19 Jul 2019 15:54:31
He's be a good signing providing he's fully recovered from injuries. He knows this league and there would be no transfer fee.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 09:02:26
There’s talk of £70k p/ w, think we can move on.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 09:27:07
I agree Flo, that's a big wage, but I feel we may have to bite the bullet at some point. If we need a striker who is proven at Championship level it is going to cost. Whilst Grabbans attitude is clearly questionable he is a goal scorer (penalties apart) . We cannot rely solely upon him (unless playing away, of course) .

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 12:25:27
Are we collecting strikers with Achilles heal injuries? Pay as you play deal if he pitches up!

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 14:19:59
Forest are linked with Norwegian striker Bjorn Johnsen of AZ Alkmaar in Holland.

Folks are already moaning at his mediocre goal scoring record for AZ (7 goals in 25 games last season), but most of his appearances where from the bench, his goals to minutes ratio is quite good! - A goal every 142 minutes (approx. a goal every 1.5 games) . Not too shabby considering he's not playing regularly. He's also scored 5 goals in 13 caps for Norway.

He's 6' 4" and should offer a different option for us. I think he might be worth a punt, personally.

Bit like Murphy then.

Agree6 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 14:32:21
Sounds a bit like Lars veldwijk enough said, we shouldn't be looking to take a punt we should be looking for a proven striker at this level.

Agree3 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 14:45:23
Proven strikers at this level cost a minimum of 10 million. Easier said than done! We don’t really need a prolific goal scorer we need someone different to Grabs. If we get the right type of striker to hold up play, run the lines, set up our midfielders it would be perfect.

Agree4 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 15:47:37
Neil maupay at brentford had probably worse stats than this guy at st ettien in france he only scored 1 goal in 15 games. At nice he scored 6 goals in 44 but now for brentford he's one of the best strikers in the championship so this guy could be worth a punt.

Agree6 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 18:11:28
Depends how much they want for him. At 27 should be at his peak. Been at hearts so should speak English at least!?

If he has the character and commitment of "Alfie" Haarland then he will do for me!

OBE saw the potential and got the best out of him.

If we have a decent coach and he is the "right type" then his stats are meaningless if played to his strengths? We need a brute of a hold up centre forward to get our creative "girls in the backs" to fire and score!

Agree2 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 19:21:33
We have had some very good Scottish players, how about some Scottish players to come in red.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 19:49:44
Bottom line though red it's all its and buts.
We can manage to sign shed l8ads of midfielders that aren't good enough or we don't need but bring in crap strikers sporadically and get rid in quick time because they are what it say on tin, crap 🤔.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 22:33:14
What about Sturridge - free agent now. He might be worth a punt. He'd tear this league up!

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 00:25:59
Yea right on over 100 grand a week not a chance of getting him please tell me u was joking.

19 Jul 2019 02:54:43
Of course I was joking :-) - But he is the sort of player we need though.

Redinexile clough didn’t sign haaland frank clark did.

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 12:11:38
Wot I would say is a good coach can make a crap player look fantastic, we have had a lot of players leave in the past then turned out to be great elsewhere. If they play to there strengths it builds confidence and belief, we haven’t had that since Billy Davis era.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 12:42:19
Yes, you could say he is a bit like Darryl Murphy. Except for a few key points.

1. He's 9-years younger than Murphy and not well past his peak. So he'll probably retain some sell-on value instead of investing in a player who's about to swap his boots for a pipe and slippers.
2. He's not a statue like Murphy, he's at his physical peak and should still have a lot more pace and dynamism than Murphy. Not just a static No9 who struggles to play more than once a week.
3. He'll probably want considerably less in his wage packet than Murphy is currently on. I'd imagine DM is on well over £20k a week, BJ should be well under.

Other than that though, yes, he's identical to Murphy.

Agree3 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 13:04:46
Language not an issue as I believe he's American/ Norwegian, raised in the USA.

According to a media report Cummings has been told he can look for another club. 1 year left on his contract.

Hopefully they drop him on his head. Might knock some sense into him.

Forest in advanced talks to sell Guedioura to Al Kuwait.
I personally still think he has something to offer at this level but we can't keep them all I guess.

I think SL sees Yates as a natural replacement.

Don’t think Yates has anywhere near the ability of gued, looks a totally different type of player to me.

Get rid of Pep. Average at best.

Guedioura and Yates. Two very different types of player but neither good enough.

18 Jul 2019 18:49:59
Time for Yates to improve.

18 Jul 2019 20:33:48
Burncross, you make it sound as though he has been in the 1st team for three or four years,give over.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 10:27:52
I think Labri wants to hang on to Osborn - he's such a good utility player if anyone is injured, and he stood out V Olympiacos. For me he adds pace and stamina to that left side. Give him a 2 year contract.

Believable2 0Unbelievable

18 Jul 2019 10:38:42
He has no pace. I have never seen him beat anyone for pace. His passing was awful in that game and he continually lost the ball. Take the 3-5 million for him and run.

Agree6 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 11:03:58
Pace? Like redtree said, in my many years of watching him play, I can probably recall 2 occasions when he's took and player on and got past them.

Agree3 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 11:31:42
If we can get any money for Osborn. sell.

Agree4 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 11:49:26
Dont want jack of all trades master of none we need people good at there position and back up for them or would you like greg halford up front again 😂😂.

Agree2 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 12:13:58
You jest but at this rate he might well be on his way back and playing upfront! Especially if he is a free agent. Could do with his long throw too!

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 14:51:08
Osborn might turn out to be a much better player than many of the midfielders we now have. I've never understood why so many people on here have wanted rid of him. Most of the Managers have wanted to keep him at Forest.

Agree2 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 16:34:25
He has had over 4 years to show he is better than our other midfielders and failed.

Agree2 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 16:58:28
That's not what his statistics show. Your and my sense of failure must be different.

Agree2 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 17:31:07
What stats are they? Assists and goals are poor. His crossing always fly’s past the back post. If he’s not doing that he’s doing a cruyff turn on the edge of our own box to pass back to the centre back.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 18:32:54
What we cannot afford to do is get rid of players that have the commitment to the club the likes of Benny have even if they are not everyone's first choice.

We need the right mentality in the dressing room to get out the Championship and so far the "Hand of Dourekas" on our recruitment has not exactly moved us forward?

Be very careful what you wish for!

Agree4 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 19:42:32
Osborn: stats over 6 seasons

212 appearances
15 goals
28 assists
77% passing accuracy

Guediora: 9 seasons (includes other clubs)

151 appearances
7 goals
10 assists
73% passing accuracy.

Agree2 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 20:30:03
They play in different positions. Those stats have absolutely no relevance bsered. I could find an attacking midfielder and compare them to Osborn and it would be embarrassing for him. 77% passing rate when a majority of his passes are to a center back is a joke too inflated.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 23:09:53
And how are these stats put together and by who, all a load of tosh.
They both aren't good enough and I've seen them both give the ball away frequently.
Made up rubbish by nerds studying every player in the world🤣🤣🤣🤣🤪🤪🤪.

18 Jul 2019 23:54:49
I agree 79 trust your eyes not the stats.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 08:58:06
Pass completion tells you how often they give the ball away so you don't need to worry about the red mist that comes up and obscures the facts and you have already written a player off!

Thats what i like lads give the players a fair chance. They've only had 2/ 3 training seasons and a couple of game. Why do everyone on here thinks its so easy to be a manager and to find a formula that will win everygame we play. I bet most people on here who moan plays Football Manager then thinks its so easy. Why don't they get off their butts and apply for the job when by all accounts according to them the posistion will be open again in the very near future. I love NF and been a supporter for decades and it hurts me to see what's happening to them at the mo but what we need is stability not constant changes. COYR.

Bez they talk about being 3 weeks in front in training and pre season. Total nonsense. These guys have been playing football for 20 years. So they have 2 month off and need to be retrained?
O'Neill certainly got stability.
We've got rid of a manager who won everything and swapped him for a manager who's won nowt and signed a load of failed freebies.
Gonna be a long season my friend.

Agree5 0Disagree

17 Jul 2019 11:28:24
Bezman you won't get stability if the owners keep buying 8 players every transfer window, the word buying I'll use loosely.
They then expect the coach to get promoted with these players and when it doesn't happen the sack the coach at xmas.
It's the owners who have got it wrong on the playing side not us fans.

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Jul 2019 11:43:15
Everyone has an opinion of this which i uderstand and appreciate but at the end of the day football is a business now and not a sport and the man who puts money (alot of money at that) into the club has the right to say what's what. If he's not happy he has the right to change what he thinks is right and i know its a bit different in greece to here but i personally think he has the best interest for NF at heart. I know its difficult for us loyal supporters to see this but i truely think the good times is just around the corner.

Whinging and whining and the season hasn't even started, it's a friendly, If weaknesses in certain players are spotted now, better than in the league imo, everyone is getting a chance.

God help us all when it does start, everybody duck when the rattles and dummies get thrown out:)

Lol pot kettle comes to mind as I said earlier get your best 11 together and start playing them now every season and manager as done the same thing for years swap change players formations and when they think they've found there best 11 by Xmas there sacked because they can't get consistency and the merry go round starts again I don't understand what fans think there going to get with a bunch of freebies nobody else wanted and to top it off lolley will be gone very soon lucky if we make mid table this season.

Quite interesting how you describe any forest fan that doesn't agree with your idea of a fan as a moaner or whinger.
Think you might get a shock when the season does get underway, the squad needed strengthening with a bit of quality only adomah offers that the rest are no better than we had, personally think we'll struggle and that's not moaning my friend it's just the way I see it.

Agree3 0Disagree

17 Jul 2019 13:43:15
Hey all i'm saying is everybody should have an opinion and eveybody has the right to think what they want because i moan about NF all the time because they are so frustrating. Every NF supporter has their own ideas on how they should play but at the end of the day we are not the manager and rightly or wrongly we should at some level support the manager and hope he gets it right. On to the players that have come in we have to trust the manager again unfortunatly but look in the past when we were getting some questionable players like Kenny Burns and a few others and i would say people were thinking the same about Brian and Peter.

Agree2 0Disagree

17 Jul 2019 13:45:48
I actually agree with you Skegs. I am hoping that’s the last we see of some players e. g. Watson, Osborn and Cash at rightback. And that match was simply to get one last look at them. We do need to be cementing our first 11 down now. As for what 79’s saying I personally love to hear negative perspectives of you grumpy whingers. Gives me a chance to bring you some positivity and wind you lot up 😂.
