Any body know what's happening with Marcus Mcguane? Seems to be rumbling on for ever.

1.) 07 Feb 2020 15:41:02
Clapson seems to think paperwork nor completed, but emphasises he's an U23 prospect not First Team. The saga continues. .

2.) 08 Feb 2020 20:03:36
Probably international clearance.

3.) 09 Feb 2020 11:07:01
I can reveal from an impeccable source that Chris Cohen and Reidy gave McGuane and a couple of other lads as yet unidentified a thorough work out at the Academy yesterday morning. His signing will probably be announced tomorrow. Unless of course it was a fitness test and they failed it!

Carvalho to Trabzonspor is being rumoured.
God yes please. Get as much back as possible and invest for promotion push.
I know this move would Divide opinion but most people seem to be coming on board every week that he just hasn't worked out.

Could just be like you said about someone else linked to us Skegsjay, fake newspaper report.

3.) 06 Dec 2019 12:33:21
It could well be wtw but it's more than likely he will be gone somewhere come January.

4.) 06 Dec 2019 22:08:14
After the millwall game I'd consider flogging a few more players.

5.) 07 Dec 2019 19:55:22
Why can't everyone just lay off carvalho and get behind him when picked, Silva was appalling against millwall giving the ball away constantly and contributing very little, yet no complaints about him because he only cost 2.5 mill, πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”.

6.) 07 Dec 2019 20:26:12
I can not agree with you on that one 79, Osborn cost us nothing yet inspite him giving 100% every game and in a couple of seasons having the most assists in a Championship season some kept on his case only mentioned his weaknesses. You off course do not agree but for me when a player has cost the club a lot of money by their standards then i'm inclined to expect more from that player.

Carvalho was unlucky to have missed a lot of the pre season because he got clobbered and was out as a result but he should be more consistent by now. I hope he makes the grade it is down to the owners not the fans to make the final decision on his fate.

7.) 07 Dec 2019 20:49:20
So do you think Silva is consistent?
And do you think he'll ever score a goal for us?

8.) 07 Dec 2019 21:03:48
I think Silva has adapted to English football better, and he has not been at the club anywhere near as long as Carvalho, if Sabri plays him with the aim of scoring i think he is capable of doing it. L

9.) 07 Dec 2019 21:20:44
Then you haven't been watching him he takes every free kick that comes to nothing, takes every corner that mostly comes to nothing and the best you can say about his shooting is to tell him not to.
Busy player but gives the ball away far too much.

10.) 07 Dec 2019 21:41:25
That's just me even it up on cavs replacement no goals and very few assists, its all about what cavs cost with you lot.

11.) 07 Dec 2019 22:03:49
He broken up more other teams attacks than Carvalho has assists and goals to his name. Carvalho thinks making a tackle to get the ball back so he can create something for us is beneath him, it is a team sport, gone are days when you can carry a player untill he decides to pick the perfect pass, or show a bit of skill then scores. Like i have said i hope he can make the grade but he needs to do sooner rather than later. I notice you have not mentioned anything about Osborn costing nothing and still getting stick.

12.) 07 Dec 2019 22:33:08
No tens aren't expected to win balks they have to win games with their assists and goals, I saw a striker? last night who couldn't be a striker and cudn't score if hos life depended on it but was marginally better at tackling, buts that's not what they are there for.

Silva won't score a goal all season and won't assist much either.
Like I say if it wasnt for the fact that cavs cost 13 million non of you would be complaining, that's all it's about and all it's ever been about.

Like say also semedo had a stinker and he's valued at 25 mill, ameobi cost nothing had a first half stinker but came good, just stop getting on one players back because he cost 13 million, if you want to call someone then take it out on the owners who are wasting another 100 million on a new stadium trying to please some of you with the crap they give you with players that cost 13 million.
Think about that.

13.) 07 Dec 2019 23:03:02
On another note Osborn struggles to even make the bench at Sheffied.
The boy is just a grafter that can't nail down a position for his career.
One of the best engines I've ever seen and a remarkable injury free career but lacks any killer instinct and doesn't know his true position.

14.) 08 Dec 2019 00:34:40
Like i said about Osborn for about two seasons he had the most assists in the Championship, yet he cost nothing and kep getting stick, as for his true position it is not his fault every manager liked he could cover different positions and therefore played him in them, Not Bad having the Most Assists in the Championship for a player that does not know his best position yet still got slated. Yet you think Carvalho only gets slated because of his value. πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”.

15.) 08 Dec 2019 10:54:27
79, he was the most expensive transfer in the clubs history, ofcourse people are going to expect more of him. I don't see why you feel so personally offended that people want rid of him but the fact is that he hasn't delivered. Silva might not be the best either but in my opinion, and it seems Sabris too, he is better than Carvalho.

16.) 08 Dec 2019 12:19:33
Skegsjay feels Carvalho will be leaving in January, maybe Skegsjay is right. If Carvalho leaves it could mean someone will come in that is better than Silva and Carvalvo while a decent back up to Grabs Two joins the team. The transfer window is going to be interesting to see who,and how many comes in.

17.) 09 Dec 2019 14:04:46
Ben Osborn? Most assists in the Championship? When? lol

2014/ 15: 4 assists.
2015/ 16: 5 assists.
2016/ 17: 7 assists.
2017/ 18: 5 assists.
2018/ 19: 5 assists.

Lolley got 11 assists last season and the assist leaders in this division tend to be around a dozen or more each season. Not 5 or 7.

18.) 10 Dec 2019 22:54:36
Well that was a day wasted of your life sutty most of us have seen enough of him play over the years not to believe wtw.
I'd get some sleep now after doing the homework. lol. πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€.



03 Oct 2019 17:01:50
Just looking at the first team squad on official website. 31 players. Sabri wants a squad of about 23/ 24. Come January try to get rid of pants, muric, milosavic, benalouane, hefele, yacob, Mir, and Clough. Try and offload Carvalho to Olympiacos and that leaves 22. Sign a striker and a good gutsy box to box midfielder and we are sorted for a push to the big time. Forget the top 6 it's all about the top 2 for me.

Red balloons

1.) 03 Oct 2019 18:00:19
A very tenuous friend of a friend (colleagues partners grand daughters grand father) is a Leicester scout and according to my colleague Leicester are looking at Worrall. I’d let him go for about Β£25m.

2.) 04 Oct 2019 07:43:47
If were serious about promotion I wouldn't let him go for any amount, surprised you would let him go.

3.) 04 Oct 2019 11:13:54
Yates is our box-to-box midfielder, don't need any more.

4.) 04 Oct 2019 12:27:40
Yep forgot about him bsered. Spot on mateπŸ‘.

5.) 05 Oct 2019 10:59:00
Semedo is your box to box man πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ.

6.) 05 Oct 2019 12:13:10
Agree with most of the departures but wouldn’t let Carvalho go or Worrall. Probably keep Pants too as back up.

I think the area we need to strengthen is an extra striker. Not much else needed.

7.) 06 Oct 2019 07:11:10
I would let Carvalho go. If our owner could make a bumper deal to Olympiacos happen to raise some funds for a striker I'd be happy. Without a doubt Joao has talent in there somewhere, but for the money we paid for him, I expected him to be tearing up the Championship, but instead he just toddles around the pitch and loses the ball way too much.

8.) 08 Oct 2019 23:44:55
I'm sorry, I must have read that wrongly, suggestions of offloading Carvalho to Greece. What utter tosh! That man is one of the most talented players I've seen pull on the garibaldi in years. In his first full season in English football, he contributed to 12 goals, never mind all the other chances he created, the dribbles, the runs at oppositions defences, the nutmegs, the first time passes, the one-twos, the ability to make play tick and to make play move faster.

His speed of thought is something else, his ability to create and find room is delightful, and personally he's given me more moments of pure pleasure watching Forest than I can remember. He's not perfect, he's young, he will make mistakes and he will give the ball away. BUT, I'd rather he give the ball away 2 out of 5 times, if he's trying a forward pass, or an incisive pass, or something positive the other 3 out of 5 times. He's coming back to fitness this year after a pretty bad injury and has already created opportunities all over the place.

I really don't know what more you want from a 22 year old. He's a player that could be in the Forest team for a long time hopefully. Just ruddy get behind the players we have that are giving 100% every game, because its working at the moment. I don't want 11 Carvalhos, but I also wouldn't want 11 Watsons or Sows.



27 Aug 2019 09:33:45
Interesting to see SL Quoting he had the whole squad of 23 players in London for the week. This is exactly the right thing to do. I said a few week s back he should pick 22/ 23 and disregard the rest.

Apparently the deadwood 12 aren't allowed near the 23. Spot on Sl
It prevents the deadwood causing unrest in the squad and keeps team spirit amongst a tight knit group This guy really knows what he's doing, hope we stick with him and give him the time he deserves.

1.) 27 Aug 2019 11:03:50
I agree RB. Pretty ruthless approach but if you want to create team spirit on and off the pitch, it necessary.

2.) 27 Aug 2019 15:16:12
Who are the deadwood?

3.) 27 Aug 2019 16:25:38
The deadwood 12?

Pantilimon, Smith, Hefele, Ariyibi, Bridcutt, Clough, Cummings, Murphy.

That's eight, with possibly Yacob too? Milosevic? Hope not, the Swede has looked decent. Benalouane? Might be surplus like Milosevic, behind Worrall, Dawson, Figs and Chema.

4.) 27 Aug 2019 22:21:49
Beneloun injured and just been given a contract extension but Milosevic is definitely on his way and darikwa is injured, admire Lamouchi for sorting out his preferred squad so quickly and trusting in worrall and showing he is actually a very good centre back, wait till carvalho is let loose and then we will really be on fire, the kid will love playing alongside sow and semedo.



08 Aug 2019 09:27:49
Today's expected signings. Colback and Bostock. Perfect let's bolster up that thin Midfield 🀷
Might even add a central defender 🀦.

Can’t our sponsors help out with the wage part? just like 32 red are paying half rooneys wages. how this is allowed is beyond me. that's like a 3rd party player.

5.) 08 Aug 2019 17:35:38
Signed Chema so guessing we are going to use Benyoune and Hefele as strikers now right as they won’t get look in at the back!

An extract from Lamouchi's rousing pre match speech
He said: β€œI just want to explain to the players – β€˜do what we have done, and do what you have to do tomorrow and you will see. ’ My nature is to be an optimist.

β€œI know the atmosphere around (the fanbase) . I can understand about the many, many years of β€œtypical Forest”, but I was not here before.

I’m not thinking about the worst scenario. We need to change the mentality, but in the short-term, this is not easy. But I can understand that. ”

Let me finish it off for him
" Of course I will play with 3 Defensive midfielders and one up front at home and it will be 0-0Β  at half time with no shots on target, that is the new PLAY THE NOTTINGHAM FOREST WAY
But even we can't cock this up with Swansea needing to win 6-0 .
Just thought I'd get in first before Red Fred and 2 star with the moaning 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣.

Brentford are 11 points ahead of us, 11 points! Brentford famous for static rousing nylons. that's our yardstick for this season. We are limping into the playoffs thanks to a turgid style of play. No cohesive midfield and only one sort of striker. Its been a poor quality championship this season hence we have probably managed to scrape 6th. Yeah we did the double over brentford big deal they have 81 points. Crowds of 10k but entertained and exciting matches. I would settle for being Brentford. We have been the almost team this season, if we win the play offs i would say we fluked it.

More often than not the team that limps into the playoffs gains promotion.
Ive seen many sides go into the playoffs in great form only to miss put at the final hurdle.
It becomes about mental strength and physicality.
Its a cup competition esentially where favourites often get beat.

6.) 22 Jul 2020 16:06:16
Steady on Rutland your not allowed to assess it so perfectly as that 😎 We all need to stick together tonight as we limp on crutches into the okay offs.
As lamouchi said he's a natural optimist. Hense a one striker and park the bus, bore everybody into submission season.

Brentford have played some great football for the last few years, always look really quick and strong and pass the ball well, think it was a Mr Warburton who got them playing that way.
