Sky have reported Forest are still wanting Mckenna valued at around £7m by Aberdeen. Sl does not rate many of the vast amount of Forest players that were at the club before he was by the looks of it.

If Sl is looking to get the team to play more quick passing, with over lapping play then why was the team back passing as a matter of course, and lofting it most of the rest of the time against Wba.




06 Aug 2019 11:33:54
Arsenal want £5m for Jenkinson, no thanks, not when a forward is more important.


1.) 06 Aug 2019 12:45:18
2 million fee apparently.

2.) 06 Aug 2019 13:39:20
Get loan in for full back if it means spending more on a good striker! Need left footed cover at centre half too.

3.) 06 Aug 2019 14:44:02
Stuff anymore centre backs.
Two strikers and four more midfielders, can never have too many of those.

4.) 06 Aug 2019 14:55:37
Hate to say this but we won't be getting a decent striker. Only French misfits or has beens.

5.) 06 Aug 2019 15:20:28
Apparently their fans are doing cartwheels, can’t believe their luck they might be getting rid.

6.) 06 Aug 2019 15:44:24
Yes suspect you are right. Ulloa a has been and Mendy a French misfit! Promotion what's that!?

7.) 06 Aug 2019 17:49:56
TWF no no no you heard it wrong it's relegation not promotion.
The DOF's agenda is too get us into league 1 with as little money as possible.



05 Aug 2019 14:05:04
Qpr put another bid for Kenna of Aberdeen with a lot of add on's but it got turned down, Kenna has since put in a transfer request. Aberdeens manager stated he was not sure if Forest had put another bid in.


1.) 05 Aug 2019 14:45:05
Kenna wants a move to qpr apparently.

2.) 05 Aug 2019 22:57:21
Kenna make no sense of your posts Basil! 🤣.



04 Aug 2019 11:41:09
The club are thinking of selling Worrall and want Long from Burnley. Go on, get on with it is what I say.


1.) 04 Aug 2019 13:09:27
Didn't they want Worrall last year? let's get Long and cash for Worrall then.

2.) 04 Aug 2019 14:59:04
Do they have a goal scorer we could get aswell?

3.) 04 Aug 2019 15:41:19
Gazz, What is one of those? 😁.

4.) 04 Aug 2019 17:22:29
Erm. can't remember LC.

5.) 04 Aug 2019 18:40:46

6.) 04 Aug 2019 23:21:59
Sooner have Shane Long and keep our defenders!



20 Jun 2019 17:44:51
Burnley and Norwich are thinking about signing Colback.


1.) 20 Jun 2019 18:51:43
Good. Average player at best.

2.) 20 Jun 2019 22:23:03
Average Premiership player maybe but one of the best centre midfielders in our league!

Burncross you really should watch the games more closely?

Who are we going to get that is better?

3.) 21 Jun 2019 09:21:06
Hes a great player at champ level. A very clever footballer, he knows when to foul.

4.) 21 Jun 2019 12:37:31
With Colback you can only guarantee the number of games it takes him to get the required number of yellow card, and then her's out of the team. He's also prone to red cards. So is Benalouane.

5.) 21 Jun 2019 16:12:40
Sheffield United managed it and for a lot less money. They got low paid free transfers and won promotion. Overpaid PL players are not the answer especially ones who get booked 15 times.

6.) 21 Jun 2019 19:32:02
Good point syred.

7.) 21 Jun 2019 20:22:34
Good player no doubt but I can se why Raffa doesn't rate him,he has no pace when up against a tricky opponent and McGinn showed him up big time for that.
Not worth more than 15k a week and that hurts me to say that but its modern day football.

8.) 22 Jun 2019 01:45:45
Got to agree with most the one thing you get with colback ain't pace but he knows how to read the game yeah he puts the foot in,

9.) 22 Jun 2019 06:56:59
Liam bridcutt was growing into the role end of previous season. Better mobility than colback. Landsbury was better than both on his day, good collector of yellows too. But colback is not worth the wages. Sorry but at nearly 30 he is after money not passion for promotion.

No changes to the team tonight, that is showing respect to Fleetwood, what a change to see from Sl.


1.) 13 Aug 2019 17:04:05
Has the team been announced then?

2.) 13 Aug 2019 17:29:05
T T site wrote Sl has said there are no changes to the team.

3.) 13 Aug 2019 19:41:39
Well I count six changes, so that's half the team lol.

4.) 13 Aug 2019 20:07:46
9 changes bserd, you will need to count again.

5.) 13 Aug 2019 20:34:06
Some of that 9 got on the pitch in the last match?



12 Aug 2019 12:30:13
We all know in a ideal world we would have gotten another striker in before the transfer market closed, but instead of having Dawson pumping long passes to Lonley Grabben, and having the players to work in unison and having the three forward players interchange passes, therefore working chances for one another we could do well enough, let's face it we have loads of midfield players to cover for injury and bans.


1.) 12 Aug 2019 13:07:21
Theres no ideal world about it strikers win you games and titles fact and if grab one can't be arsed or gets injured we will be in trouble.

2.) 12 Aug 2019 13:34:39
Skegs, yes a good striker wins you games, but if the person in charge of the players does not play to their strengths the best players will fail.

3.) 12 Aug 2019 14:52:57
He was dropping 20yards back on Saturday to get a touch of the ball and that’s him not being bothered? people want him to sun about but if he’s running here there and everywhere who’s up top to score.

4.) 12 Aug 2019 15:30:05
I agree that we need another option up front but even if we had signed a striker the pattern of the game against Leeds would have been the same. While ever we persevere with thumping long balls down the pitch as soon as we get possession nothing will change. Only Semedo, who looks a good player, showed any composure and tried to find a red shirt with the ball. We're all delighted with a point at Leeds but some of the comments on here make me think I must have watched a different game. We got lucky in reality. If Leeds had picked a better ball in the last third or if they had a decent striker we could have been well beaten. A defeat doesn't always mean you've played poorly and likewise a good result doesn't always mean you played well. Early days but I'm yet to see this pacy passing game SL allegedly likes to play.

5.) 12 Aug 2019 16:46:42
Grabban is not adapted to playing a lone striker role. Likes scoring goals inside the box but too reliant on somebody else to set him up. Cut off his supply and he is neutralised. Is Lamouchi going to try him upfront with Mir?! Might work.

6.) 12 Aug 2019 17:36:58
Nice to see grabbon with a big smile on his face after he scored.

7.) 12 Aug 2019 19:46:28
Grabban scored 17 goals last season up top on his own!
Wat would the worlds best strikers of done for us on Saturday? grabban had one chance and scored it, dropped deep to get a touch of the ball, later it off well showed some skill won the ball bk when he lost it. but still gets rapped for that.

8.) 13 Aug 2019 13:46:33
How many goals would Grabban have scored if he had better link up play from the midfield.



12 Aug 2019 08:34:21
Sl has asked for patience, and wants more time to get the players to play the way he wants.

He is at Nottingham Forest, he has no chance of getting either from the club.

He has no idea of the club's history when it comes to those that have gone before him for him to say that.

Good luck Sl, you are going to need it.


1.) 12 Aug 2019 08:58:04
Forest aren’t much different to any other club, nobody gets time, and he only got the job because the last manager was sacked after about 4months and hardly any games, so he knew the score with the owner,

2.) 12 Aug 2019 09:31:47
We will never progress until we give a manager time. Leeds were only better than us at the weekend because they have been drilled in a way to play for over a year. We need to give a manager time to implement his style of play. Otherwise we are just going to continue with disjointed performances.

3.) 12 Aug 2019 10:30:58
Stevie f. How many clubs have sacked a manager after about four months and hardly any games in the last three years, yet you say we are hardly any different other clubs.

4.) 12 Aug 2019 10:36:53
Gm2d Watford sacked 4 managers in a season and got promoted so there’s 1.

5.) 12 Aug 2019 11:31:04
Sl should of demanded a striker in everybody and anybody knows we need one so I would say if there's going to be a downfall and he gets the sack that's going to be the biggest reason just saying 😉.

6.) 12 Aug 2019 11:41:25
Yes Stevie f, but there are 92 league club's and you were only able to mention 1.

I see how we are so similar to other clubs

7.) 12 Aug 2019 12:03:28
Skegs, you know what some on this board say, Sl has no say in who comes in.

If he demanded another striker he might have been sacked going off the way the club works.

8.) 12 Aug 2019 12:21:42
Stevief also darren moore at wba they were fourth in the league when he was sacked.

9.) 12 Aug 2019 13:12:28
Mansfield got to the playoffs and asked theirs the shower asked kewell after not many months or games it happens all the time not just here.

10.) 12 Aug 2019 13:24:43
Or even sacked lol.

11.) 12 Aug 2019 17:14:30
Fulham tried three managers last season and still got relegated.

12.) 12 Aug 2019 17:29:41
Sgetty, my point was not that it’s correct to keep changing managers, but that it’s not a problem unique to forest, as some on here seem to be saying.

13.) 12 Aug 2019 22:06:35
I knew your point Stevie and was reiterating.

14.) 12 Aug 2019 22:43:19
S-Getty ok mate,



07 Aug 2019 11:25:43
It looks like Brice is on his way in a £3.6m move, he just needs to pass his medical today.

He is quick across his line, and uncompromising in the air someone has said, but he will only get to play in cup competitions if Muric has to play a minimum amount of games.

Where is the brilliant striker Sl said he wanted, then club will not sign a striker for the sake of it he once said, any striker has a lot to live up to that comes in then, perhaps he meant streaker.




06 Aug 2019 18:34:33
The club is in a state of confusion, if you want promotion, and the owner has insisted he does you need to get better players in than you already have, to do that you need to either go for proven players in the league, or players from other leagues that have qualities that would make them able to step up to the plate straight away in your league, and that they have played a good amount of games for the club's they have played for.

If the club are going to play the waiting game to get promotion then you bring in a mixture of proven players and up and coming players that will learn from the proven players.

Whichever way you decide to go about it the club needs to get in players that suit the way the teams coaching staff want them to play, you also need players to play in their best positions, and play to their strengths then the coaching staff then need the players playing for each other rather than playing as individuals.

The club however are bringing in players left, right, and centr, playing players in their weakest positions that have little or no experience of football, let alone our league, we have a goalkeeper that may well have a loan clause that he plays a certain amount games yet we are looking to bring in two more even though we have Pantilimon who did a reasonable job last season, and at least two others.

We are struggling to get rid of players because the club insists on handing out silly wages to the players they bring in, and offer them contacts that are too long because it is the only way entice them to join us.

If the club want instant success they need a quality manager be it from abroad or English and pay them well, but be it managers, or players they want to do it on the cheap. Get a manager and players that know what they are doing, otherwise tell us they are going to lay the foundations for success in a well planned and methodic way then not to panic at the first sign of things not going the way they like.


1.) 06 Aug 2019 19:14:15
It's not in a state of confusion, it's in a state of Breakdown. Corporal Jones will be round next with his butcher's lorry to drag away the carcasses.

2.) 06 Aug 2019 20:44:25
We're DOOMED. 😁😁😁.

I must say sorry to you Fred, I thought you said Jenkinson will offer more security in the long term as a right back.

The response you gave me you must have said Jenkinson offers more security at right back now.

Had you said in the long term then what makes you say that as Cash has hardly played at right back, and Sl must see something in him to put him there, so he can only get better.

Once again sorry for getting what you said wrong.

Fred what makes you say that, the more either get forward the more space the opposition have when our moves break down. Cash could offer more goals from that position once he has adapted to it.
