SSN saying we're in talks with Arsenal for Carl Jenkinson. Not a bad signing.




29 Sep 2017 14:56:39
Why are most people saying that WB has 2 games to save his job. We are only 6 points off the playoffs and only played 10 games. We have a few new lads who need to get used to each other and the more games we play the better we'll get. We can't always play beautiful football and sometimes need to win ugly but who cares because a win is a win. The new owners have put a plan in place and its a plan we need to get on board with.


1.) 29 Sep 2017 16:57:19
I agree Bez, a lot of people on here are frustrated and have no patience, to say get rid of MW now or in a few games time is just plain crazy.

2.) 29 Sep 2017 19:42:16
Bezman We do not want beautiful football at the moment. We need results and clean sheets, it is not as though we are unlucky and loosing One Nil. We are loosing at home and leaking too many goals. How many losses do there have to be before the owners sack the manager ? Not many more I am afraid. Another loss tomorrow and MW will be gone.

3.) 29 Sep 2017 20:26:43
It's more the fact he inherited the second worst defence in league then completely ignored the fact we conceded 72 goals went our and bought loads of attacking options, leaves out last year's player of the year for a poor defender, relentlessly plays mills dispite so many mistakes and solo positional errors leading to goals, take leeds for example new owners new manager 8 or 9 new players same boat as us except there manager joined at then of June and there 3rd I'm sorry but he chose to ignore our biggest problem and is now paying the price

4.) 29 Sep 2017 20:30:29
Some want it all, and want it now.

5.) 29 Sep 2017 20:49:06
Jake he isn't going to change his way of playing.
He has a style and when it works,as it did against Huddersfield last season and Ipswich,it's great to watch.
He will stick to his way and so he should,it won't happen overnight it takes time,we'll have good days and bad days,just give it time.
If your worried don't be two team's are already relegated,in Bolton and Sunderland and that's because they are a mess as clubs from the top.
We've sorted that and if our new owners sacked Warburton after 10 games then they would be no better than fawaz.
Next thing you know another manager comes in,don't like the players out comes the cheque book,he fails,then the owners get abuse.
Ring any bells?
It should do,alarm ones.

6.) 29 Sep 2017 21:03:57
Wouldn't say that abf but an improvement would be a start defence is as bad if not worse than last year as everyone keeps saying work in progress where is the progress because I still see a team leaking goals and lacking inspiration don't get me wrong off the field is great but on it looks no different to last season right now

7.) 30 Sep 2017 10:52:41
I'm sorry. I don't understand how it's MWs fault we didn't improve the defence? He bought in a RB, tried to get in a cb and a LB in, brought in a GK who got injured before he played and has strengthened the midfield to shield the defence and is trying to get the team to transition into an attractive attacking team. We are not defending particularly well, however a lot of the issues are individual errors.

8.) 30 Sep 2017 11:37:40
ABF. I feel a Queen number coming on!!! 🎸🎸🎸

{Ed007's Note - Years ago I went for a job interview which went a bit like this:

Interviewer: What would you consider one of your strengths?
Me: Performing under pressure
Interviewer: Can you give me an example?
Me: *deep breath*

Mm ba ba de,
Um bum ba de,
Um bu bu bum da de

PRESSURE, pushing down on me, pressing down on you........

9.) 30 Sep 2017 12:36:53
Transition into attacking football ? We seldom play attacking football. We play sideways football most of the time. The reason we keep losing is because our possession is none penetrative so far this season and most of his tenure last season. Just because the ball is on the floor doesn't automatically make it attackng football.
Play like we did for 10 mins in second half against Fulham and it might click bit this manager is taking too long to spot the obvious. Is vaughans absence the reason? If so MW carries the can for that too because Vaughan hasn't made a full season for years so why would you so him as anything other than bit part.

10.) 30 Sep 2017 18:29:59
2star. Yet under Warburton both Vaughan and Cohen managed to play every game when wanting new contracts.

Fickle forest fans are never happy 😂 I think if we were top of the league playing rubbish football some of you lot would be calling for the managers head! Patience is needed boys, don’t forget the last 5 years! You’ll see in the next few seasons how we improve! It takes time. Rome wasn’t built in a day!

15.) 02 Oct 2017 07:07:15
Rome wasn’t built in a day, only hone cause a certain someone wasn’t in that particular job 😁

16.) 02 Oct 2017 07:13:39
Bloody autocorrect 🙄

Rome wasn’t built in a day only because a certain someone wasn’t on that particular job

17.) 02 Oct 2017 15:11:48
Ok let's blindly carry on averaging 2 goals conceded a game the improvement will be because were playing league 1 teams you just can't let that many goals in in the championship

18.) 02 Oct 2017 15:32:27
RJ. Yet we are only a small amount of points away from third place

19.) 02 Oct 2017 16:02:58
Chill there's no chance of Bolton,Sunderland,Birmingham,Burton finishing above us all four are conceding as much or more than us,so no chance of playing league one.

20.) 02 Oct 2017 16:33:44
FF79. I'm not predicting anything, but the clubs you mentioned might not go down, there is too long to go to guess.

21.) 02 Oct 2017 17:13:51
Can't see past it bright,not guessing just believe when things are not right at the top as in the case of Bolton and Sunderland,pretty much doomed,can even see Bolton back in administration,Cottrell has got to sort out 20 million pounds of misfits,if the nutters that run Brum give him any time that is. and Burton will struggle.

22.) 02 Oct 2017 17:41:25
We nearly the same points away from the bottom 3 as well abf 😁 I'm not being a doomer just looking at the facts this defence has been like this for 56 games now and 20 of those under mw and absolutely no progression I know you need the rub of the green but we have had a seasons worth in 10 games lol people say give it time when for me this defence has there time already and failed miserably

23.) 02 Oct 2017 19:07:01
Interesting you say same defence has failed,but it's not the Same,darikwa has only come in this season,traore is playing regularly for the first time,and Worrall has only come in late last season,so it's not the same old guard really.
It's not just the defenders it's the lack of tackling in midfield,how many times have you seen an opponent run from his own half to our penalty area? A lot,that needs addressing as well,It's not just defenders who need to defend.



14 Jan 2017 05:47:45
Well, what was left of any respect for the history of Forest has come crashing down. Whoever's fault it was it has done unrepairable damage to Forest. I would certainly advise any decent player left there to get the hell out of dodge as the team will surely go only in one direction while under the control of the current owners who are only interested in one thing and that's down.

It breaks my heart to see this happen to a once unbeatable team and the object of my emotions for the last 4 decades.


1.) 14 Jan 2017 14:03:24
We just don't know where the problem lies in this debacle but it suits some to just blame everything on Fawaz (and I'm not defending him as all the evidence suggests he's a bit of a muppet) However there are at least two things to consider. Firstly, why did the American's proposed move for both Everton and Swansea collapse? I suggest all is not as it appears. Secondly, the rubbish 'reporting' from the Nottingham Evening post has just smeared Fawaz at every turn without any hard facts - "The Evening Post understands" Has been "linked to" it is reported that (by who, from who, for who? ) "It is thought that" etc etc. We want news not substantiated views. And so Fawaz is to blame for everything though I think you will find that the Americans were quite was was reported
Whatever, i doubt we will get relegated because though we have a crap team with many journeymen/underachievers/non triers we are capable of winning the odd match here and there (a la Ipswich, Barnsley) and the dross below us probably can't. Rotherham, Wigan, Burton can improve in the January window but we can and probably will. Just remember most business is not done until the last minute as clubs try to hike up the price by threatening to hold out. If we have the likes of Cash and Worral playing then we will have at least some caring heart and that gives a bit of hope. As for the prima donna Lansbury get rid to the highest bidder. Its a shame we didn't let him go to Villa and get Gardener here. It's all going to be alright

14 Jan 2020 18:48:09
That's it then Mir has had his loan terminated so I would put money on a striker is close to signing for us. Who? That's the question and now with Grabban being the only striker it's getting a bit close to the knuckle COYR.


1.) 14 Jan 2020 19:28:00
It's getting nowhere near the knuckle,17 days left yet.
Who have WBA
SWANSEA signed?
Notorious difficult window and most buisness won't be done till the last few days.
It's the same every year and not just us.

2.) 14 Jan 2020 19:54:11
Looks like deal for Glenn Murray is getting closer.

3.) 14 Jan 2020 20:05:59
Fff79 yes mate but as you and fawazmark2 said when I was discussing Leeds cup tie, we ain’t bothered about them we’re forest fans😄.

4.) 14 Jan 2020 20:08:26
Walker recalled I bet still a major upgrade on mir.

5.) 14 Jan 2020 20:12:44
Good memory Stevie. Just beat me to that one.

6.) 14 Jan 2020 20:13:32
The reason I said we're getting close to the knuckle is the fact that if Grabban gets injured who in are we going to use as a front man and score them goals we need. We need a striker sooner rather than later like within the next couple of days. That's what I call close to the knuckle. I do realise there is 17 days left but if grabban does gets knackered waiting that length of time will take us right out of the playoffs.

7.) 14 Jan 2020 20:23:39
I know we are forest fans stevie, the impatience gives it away😁😁.

8.) 14 Jan 2020 20:37:59
I was just pointing out that hardly any side has managed to bolster their team and it won't be for the want of not trying.
You were going on about how good Leeds were, still lost and lost again on Saturday. 🤔🤔.

9.) 14 Jan 2020 20:47:03
Fff79 😄no mate, I was going on about how they were more positive than us about the cup tie, and how they went for it, perhaps you had too much home bitter at the fairham in your youth, and it’s affecting your memory in later life mate😄😄.

10.) 14 Jan 2020 20:49:26
Fff79 And I said the game was a microcosm of last season, started fast but burnt out in the second half, 😊.

11.) 14 Jan 2020 20:58:08
Lamouchi got it right though and beleisa didnt, stuff positive trying to beat arsenal or Chelsea in their back yard when your in the promotion race.
Brown and mild mate in the peacock.
Must have been you on the bitter. 😁😁🍺.

14.) 14 Jan 2020 21:48:44
Microcosm, just had to look that up, a Greek word meaning small world, people really are getting above their station on this literally challenging ambiguous Latin and Greek associated metaphorical institutionalised directive and I don't think anyone can argue with that!

15.) 14 Jan 2020 21:56:43
Definition is a small subset of a whole that is generally considered to be representative of the whole.
An example of microcosm is a small act of the population which is surveyed in order to get an idea of the opinions of the general population.
Just thought I'd clear that up for you guys2🤣🤣🤣🎂🎂🎂.

Funnily enough I'm working near the crusader don't tend to do much around Clifton.
Still keep in touch with some lads, reggie I see from time to time at the match always get the same text every birthday from him as we share same day, to my brother from another mother, 😀
Place has changed remember the village when it was a few thatched cottages and a post office plus orchards all spoilt now with houses.
Great time growing up there.



03 Aug 2019 19:28:33
Get ready for the armchair managers who think they know better. WBA second goal was a freak of a goal. Bring on the next game.


1.) 03 Aug 2019 19:34:12
Bezman if you think that was a good performance then you either need glasses or you are deluded. Sorry, as a paying fan I will call it what it was- and that’s dross.
Anyway, we can only get better- surely we can play no worse. Lamouchi has a huge job on his hands for sure.

2.) 03 Aug 2019 19:35:07
Come on Bez, apart from the first ten minutes we did nothing, even with 3 strikers on the pitch. The clown of a manager is way out of his depth, and we have got yet another dud in the DoF.

3.) 03 Aug 2019 19:55:00
Hey I'm not saying it was a good performance at all. All I'm saying is it's the first game of the season and we were playing against a team that has been named a good bet to go up. We can definitely play better and I'm sure we will.

4.) 03 Aug 2019 19:59:01
Bit disrespectful mate whether your there or watch at home we all see and feel the same just with differing opinions. Just because someone pays x amount for a season ticket or goes to a dozen or so games doesn't make them more passionate than armchair fans. I've followed the reds for 40 years been to a few games and would love to watch them more but work, not living locally, living too far away or growing up where parents cudnt afford it is life. No expectations from me in fact no more frustration anymore just the hope that one day it happens.

5.) 03 Aug 2019 20:09:12
Well I'm by no means sure we will play any better. West Brom are considerably weaker than last year and today were there for the taking in the last 15 minutes. Even with Grabban, Mir and Johnson up front we couldn't get a shot on goal. Grabban I think is past it, Mir looks up for it, but we need another striker who will frighten the Championship, and I don't see any coming. Silva did nothing, bit like Carvalho last season. We lack any real creativity and motivation from what I saw.

6.) 03 Aug 2019 20:58:52
Again all I'm saying some people on here think it's easy to manage a team when its obviously isn't other wise they would be doing it. Yes everyone does have the right to have their opinions and fair play to everyone on here for having them. It's the first game of the season so let's give the team a chance to blend.

7.) 03 Aug 2019 21:08:49
Bezman yep but in 20 years you would think we could have found someone who could do the job.

8.) 03 Aug 2019 21:40:53
The team was beginning to blend last season so why gamble on this unknown man and a bunch of unknown players?



21 Jun 2019 05:47:12
I wonder if Joey Barton will have the gonads to have a pop at Roy Keane during the Carabao Cup first round. I'd put a tenner on it he won't. HAHAHA.


1.) 21 Jun 2019 11:22:25
I wouldn't be surprised if he does Bez. Then he will run away and hide behind the substitutes.
That's his so called style.



14 Apr 2019 06:58:29
First of all its obvious that most people on here are all out Nottingham Forest supporters which has to be a good thing. I scratch my head in the knowledge that some think its so easy to come into a club and instantly wave a magic wand and start winning every game going which obviously you can't. What Forest needs is stability and not changing the manager every ten games because they lost a few of them. Just a quick look back on another team in the shape of Man Utd who had a Scottish manager who was doing shockingly bad but the owners had foresight to hang off sacking him and trust in him (Yes its Sir Alex Ferguson) just look what he did :-) .

So the play offs are over now so we need to identify the problem areas and sort it out in the summer. I'm pretty sure the owner will back him in the transfer market as long as we get rid of some of the dead wood we have too.

Again we need stability not change for us to grow so we need to back the management team and if anyone thinks its easy then get your CVs in and do the job yourself.



1.) 14 Apr 2019 08:03:34
Each time we get a new manager i do not expect a magic wand to be waved and for us to start winning loads of games, i hope it happens but do not expect it, there is a difference.

The trouble is, when we got Warburton he said his instructions were to build a young team to play good football, and that he would be given the time needed to do that.

He however was not given much in the way of funding, he decided that possession is king although in theory the more possession you have the less the opposition can hurt you it did work in practice.

He had the team so concerned with keeping the ball they were not prepared to force the opposition into making a mistake, so the team mostly kept it in our own half waiting for the opposition to make a mistake, they however worked out if they from the off came into our half of the pitch and put us under pressure we easily cracked, so he was soon gone.

When we got Karanka, he had already managed to get Middlesbrough to the Premier league so the club changed tact and gave him whatever he wanted. Similar to Warburton he likes the team to keep possession, even if it means the ball being in our half a lot of the time. He brought in a load of players in the January that he thought suited his style of play more and might have a better attitude, but it took him too long to work out his best team, then in the summer another load of players came in, and again he took ages to work out his best team. Players stated getting frustrated by the swapping and changing then the results steadily got worse, not that they that they were that good before, so he left with his tail between his legs.

Even though Martin has a reputation for rubbish football possibly on the advice from ex players the club brought Martin in. He had the new manager effect and results got a bit better, although the football was not good at least we could still make the play offs, but teams quickly worked out how to beat his boring game plan, either he has to change tact and get us playing better football, or he should go.

I do not like managers being sacked as quickly as we sack them, but losing games regularly and watching rubbish football make me want Martin sacked if he is not prepared to at least entertain us while he tries to improve the team.

2.) 14 Apr 2019 08:38:58
Bezman you say that you can’t wave a magic wand and expect to win matches straight away and frequently with a new manager but leeds, sheff weds, A villa have all managed to do it this season? To be honest it’s not the losing of matches that worries me it’s how we are losing to sides that are simply mediocre. Blackburn yesterday were a poor side that never had to break sweat. This current set of players are probably the worst assembled and managed side I can remember in my 40 yrs of watching them. I be said it before and ill say it again there is only around 5 players I would miss the rest can go.

3.) 14 Apr 2019 10:01:17
Is there any 5 aside leagues we could enter? I reckon that’s our only chance 🤣

4.) 14 Apr 2019 10:16:19
Keenred looking at the team of players that leeds, sheff wed and villa have got then you could possibly scratch a few wins in a row. You can't blame Mon and rk for the all the players that have been inherited and to honest does anyone other than the owner, Mon and RK know what was discussed about plans for Forest and i mean squad recruitment and team philosophy's. All we can do as loyal supporters is trust in them and not cry for a new manager when things go wrong. As i have said previously we need stability. But believe me i truly understand where people are coming from



13 Jun 2018 09:27:31
Well its said that the final cost of Joao Carvalho will be around £15m. I personally feel fair play to NF for showing its ambition and is willing to pay that price. Some people on here will say its far to much money to pay on a untried player from Portugal but they might of forgot that in 2003 that Man Utd payed £12.5m for an unknown lads called Ronaldo who happens to turn out to be a relatively good player (lol). It does not matter which division your in as long as your ambition is right up there and is willing to put your money where your mouth is which our new owner is willing to do. COYRs


1.) 13 Jun 2018 10:23:20
Difference is man Utd can afford to gamble.
They've also bought some very expensive duds.
This kid needs to be good and hit the ground running,we can't afford a 13 million player to flop.

2.) 13 Jun 2018 11:06:04
I don't think it matters how big a team you are losing £12m would hurt anyone especially 15 years ago when £12m was a bloody lot of money because you could definitely get more for your money then. Yes we could keep buying journeymen for £1-2 million and hope to god we get promoted but at some point you need to grow a pair and take a risk and if the owner thinks we have the right manager then fair play to him for backing him with this kind of money.

3.) 13 Jun 2018 11:42:35
Neves and Costa were similar price las year and Boly on loan with an option to buy which Wolves have took up.

If we do same with same result then we will all be quite happy!!,

4.) 13 Jun 2018 13:22:09
North Notts we'd be delirious.
But they've done it with a very attacking approach,I don't see Karanka doing that??

5.) 13 Jun 2018 14:04:40
I am very excited by Portuguese players if they do sign and is a huge message of intent. I have been researching them and they are boiling hot property and it is blowing my mind that they look likely to sign for us!
Calveho is the hottest midfielder in Portugal and one of top under 21 players in Europe, he reminds me of Joe Cole at times but gets up and down more like Paul Scholes and his touch and pass are that good from what I have seen but I am actually more excited about Goncalves, they call him New Luis Figo and for good reason! My only concern would be if they cope with the physicality of the championship.

I would say last year we would of played crap and lost because our heads lowered when the opposistion scored but now we have a fighting mentallity and keep going till the end. For me this is a 100% improvement from last season and to be fair if we can go away to place like Blackburn and get a point then its a good nights work. COYRs.

Undislosed amount on the Osborne sale so all the amounts being shouted about are pure speculation but if the local rag is to believed we turned down 3m but more likely to be arounf 3.5m to 4m but even they don't know definitely or ever will. But if that is correct then not a bad price for someone with 11 months left on his contract. Good luck to him for wanting to play in the Premiership.

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.

Yes you could be on a downer about a game that's been played but there again 4 points from the top 2 teams so you have to happy about that. what's the problem about resting players ok out backups aren't great but you simply can't play your best team week in week out.

So we got beat at home 4-0 rubbish happens. We're still only a point from the play offs with a game in hand with still 20 odd games to play. Some people needs to take a chill pill and have some trust in the manager.
