Forest have put in a bid for Ivan Toney. So said a Peterborough fan to me last night.

1.) 08 Jan 2020 13:05:37
Good. I like the look of him.

2.) 08 Jan 2020 13:44:30
No you are in fact incorrect. it's ivor the engine not ivan toney forest have put in a bid for along with uncle bulgaria and finger mouse.

3.) 08 Jan 2020 14:35:03
I know you went away for a while Fawaz.
Do you think they let you out too early? 😉.

4.) 08 Jan 2020 14:54:43
I like the look of him but I bet we don't get him until the summer if we go for him. Shame though because we need hungry fit players right now.

5.) 08 Jan 2020 21:28:01
Interesting that mighten and Johnson didn't take part for the under 23, mighten will be in the matchday squad for reading after his performance against Chelsea of that I'm sure.

6.) 09 Jan 2020 10:05:31
If Mighten isn't in the squad then it sends the wrong signal.

7.) 09 Jan 2020 14:01:46
Mighten as to be in the squad cause as of yet we have no back up for grabbon.

8.) 09 Jan 2020 21:37:50
You can't have a better offensive player on the bench than mighten, he's a managers dream who can play all along the forward line and number ten, which personally I think he will nail that position and will be gone for a record fee before he's 20.
Very good player who needs letting loose, Bellingham at Birmingham is slightly younger and he's been Brill for them so let the lad show us just how good he is, played the full 90 mins against Chelsea proving he has stamina as well.



30 Dec 2019 14:49:05
Could Glenn Murray be a good short term option as back-up striker. Tyler Walker would learn a lot from him too.

Basically the local rag say he is on the shortlist. At 36 he would obviously be a short term fix to get us out of the division to be followed by a top international when we get promoted.

1.) 30 Dec 2019 17:09:47
Not for me don't need another Murphy only just managed to get rid of him.

2.) 30 Dec 2019 17:58:49
No more OAPs: we've been down that route and it's no good.

3.) 30 Dec 2019 18:51:06
Problem is we get the press saying were after 20 players every transfer window, they aren't often right when it comes down to it.
With the scouts that are in place at the club I can't see many home players being signed.

4.) 30 Dec 2019 19:08:33
Murray is no Murphy. He has top scored in the Championships with 30 goals so knows where the net is at this level. We only need to get out of this division not play him in the Champions League.

I know most fans are hoping for Dwight Gayle but I'm wary of how much it would cost. Knowing our luck he'd cost us £10M plus wages and get injured for the rest of the season. We could be better signing a couple of players and/ or giving Tyler Walker a chance I reckon.

Hopefully now we'll sign Gayle and Che Adams and win the division but I doubt it somehow.

5.) 30 Dec 2019 22:02:52
Murphy was top scorer in 2014/ 2015 season with 27 goals for Ipswich but was awful by the time he came to us.

I don't think we will get Gayle or Adams and personally think we could get a bargain by trying to take a striker from a lower championship team. Maybe someone like Collins from Luton, Chaplin or Woodrow from Barnsley, Bonne from Charlton or even Jutkiewicz from Birmingham. All have proven they can score in this league and wouldn't cost an absolute fortune.

Still more likely we will get someone in from abroad though like most of the players signed in the summer.

6.) 02 Jan 2020 18:11:31
Bring walker back having watched him play he's come on leaps and bounds last couple of seasons he scoring goals from all over the place not just from the 6 yard box , I'd leave Gayle at 60 grand a week a bit out of our price range sooner try and get britt back

7.) 02 Jan 2020 22:21:10
We never know the actual finances so why as fans do anyone worry about it?
The owners get more in from transfers than they spend and alas waste money at times on bad loans.
But all in all there is a progression and we will get a new stand to replace the last relic.
If someone had told me we would have 43 p0ints by new year at the start of the season with a rookie manager I'd have laughed, so the best Christmas present I've had for a long time is seeing us up there being committed and competitive.

8.) 03 Jan 2020 12:10:44
One thing I do know about finance is this. You get a loan and the money is gone. You BUY a player and they have value.

It irritates me people (including Forest reporters) always saying it makes more financial sense to loan a player and develop them for another club and get no return.

Buy a player and develop them. That makes money.

9.) 03 Jan 2020 14:19:08
It depends how you look at it, with a loan you can send them back if it does not work out, when you buy, should they fail you are stuck with a player who will go down a league to get rid of provided they will drop wages, or loan with paying most of their wage. If a loan works out you can have a option to buy. There are risks with both.



01 Sep 2019 10:55:04
Gbolo Ariyibi has left the club.

1.) 01 Sep 2019 11:42:49
Just a few more to depart then before Mondays deadline or would Forest consider just paying up the rest of their contracts to get them out of the club? I would do the latter as you are going to be paying them anyhow.

2.) 01 Sep 2019 13:11:49
A better deal is to get them to accept some lower wages elsewhere and pay the difference. Cheaper than paying off the whole contract.



10 Feb 2019 23:23:23
I've heard some balls in my time. This is the latest theme.

Apparently, Karanka persisting with Grabban taking penalties and playing the lightweight Carvalho even when we needed to be solid in midfield had nothing to do with Forest losing. In fact he was doing a great job and we were making progress and signed some good players.

Wait for it. But now we have a boss who immediately recognises what any smart observer does - that we need another penalty taker - and also plays a stronger young player in place of the lightweight Carvalho which succeeds in keeping the scores down has absolutely nothing to do with us winning.

Oh and now we have strengthened this progress making squad we are apparently going backwards.


1.) 11 Feb 2019 08:56:24
Tough run of games coming up redcyclist
Preston a
Derby h
Stoke a
Hull h
Villa h
If we don't win em all the karanka barmy army will soon be telling us that were doomed 😀😀😀

2.) 11 Feb 2019 09:38:49
Wba draw, Preston loss, Derby loss, Stoke Win, Hull Win, Villa Win.

That therefore is 10 points out of 18 for Forest.

3.) 11 Feb 2019 10:07:16
That won't be enough for the karanka lovers 😁😋😁

4.) 11 Feb 2019 10:58:01
Derby loss isn’t acceptable

5.) 11 Feb 2019 13:04:49
Cyclist sounds spot on mate you just forgot we need a goalie too.
Mind you got a better one in the stiffs. Steele

6.) 11 Feb 2019 15:47:23
I agree, tough fixtures approaching. But they are not the ones that worry me. Well only the ones against bottom half teams. Top 8 clubs rarely beat the mighty Reds!

I'm not sure about the keeper. I think he's had bad games when I haven't seen him so you probably right but let's get a top international WHEN we go up at the end f the season. EVER THE OPTIMIST!

I reckon Keano and MON get the significance of the Derby match since no manager apart from Psycho. The players will be MOTIVATED to another level for that one.


7.) 11 Feb 2019 16:58:55
I think it's too soon to be comparing Karanka's era with MON's.

Karanka's dismissal was harsh, yet another Manager not given enough time. And the performances under MON have been industrious but not very pretty with mixed results.

Really don't see how you can favour one over the other at present without having some kind of bias or trying to assert some hidden agenda.

8.) 11 Feb 2019 17:27:55
Hidden ?

9.) 11 Feb 2019 18:36:25
He wasn't dismissed,he just didn't want to work under the owners rules.
Good luck finding any club that will allow him his own way.

10.) 11 Feb 2019 20:23:54
Karankas the reason we got this massive squad an also unbalanced one, clearly needed defenders in the summer yet we signed about 10 midfielders lol

11.) 11 Feb 2019 20:39:32
And ain't that the truth, the amount of holding midfielders he had was and is ridiculous.

12.) 11 Feb 2019 21:00:26
Cyclist are you really that naive to think MON didn’t know who our penalty taker was and how many he’s missed this season before Saturday? If MON had given the job to someone else I would respect your argument but he allowed him to take it so get over it.

13.) 11 Feb 2019 21:18:43
We’ve currently got 6 holding midfielders - ludicrous !

14.) 11 Feb 2019 22:28:03
Time somebody got on their red bike!🙄🙄🙄

15.) 12 Feb 2019 00:24:52
Is it Redinexile back. It was your opinion that we were doomed to lose if we played Osbourne at left back and didn't play Carvalho wasn't it?

You were wrong. Eat some humble pie.

16.) 12 Feb 2019 12:36:21
We didn't need defenders in the Summer. We had Figs, Fox and Worrall, then went on to sign Dawson and Hefele. Five was enough, so much so that we were able to send Worrall out on loan and at the time no one complained. don't try and change the past to suit your agenda.

17.) 12 Feb 2019 14:03:31
Don't need to eat humble pie mate I opened the shop remember?

Why is it you never read posts properly before spouting nonsense ? Where is the bit about DOOMED when I posted win or draw?

I'm posting you some bike clips to stop all your bull running down your leg🤡🤣🤣🤣

18.) 12 Feb 2019 21:04:25
we did need defenders like a proper left back an all the defenders we bought were injury prone an u can’t call fox a centre back what we didn’t need is 6 centre mids

19.) 13 Feb 2019 10:52:48
In the championship there is always ‘tough games coming up’ I actually think the next 7-8 games are winnable and potentially will change everything. We have a fair few home games (which we have done well in most the season) and we haven’t got to play any of top 8 apart from Derby but against Derby form goes out the window a bit.
Is impossible to really predict much in this league but we are looking tough to beat this season and think there are signs we are starting to take chances lately.
Preston away will be hard and Derby but other games coming up I expect us to take quite a few points in and others will drop points as they play each other! I am still believing that we can be this season Fulham!

Back in training. All good. when it's safe we finish season behind closed doors and hopefully start next season in the Prem.

Life has to go on. Even if we can't pile into a stadium, we could put up big screens in parks and stuff and have a socially distanced set-up. No it won't be the same but that is not a reason to not do anything. I totally support some kind of safer arrangement (nothing is totally safe of course)

1.) 25 May 2020 15:23:31
Never mind that, what about Dominic's "Cummings" and Goings! "

2.) 25 May 2020 20:57:52
Don't start me off, I can pick numerous holes in his statement. Just a taster, his wife was ill he says with the virus symtoms the day before they travelled North . By his own instructions anyone showing virus symptoms should self isolate along with everyone else in that household immediately. He went to Downing Street we all heard him say it. That's all I will say on this matter.

3.) 25 May 2020 21:17:21
Hey up rogie get yourself over here we're playing Irish songs on the karaoke with the neighbours no Guinness though Newcastle brown mate hope you and yours are good we're just playing 7 drunken nights I'm sure you no that one 🍻🍻🍻🍻😁😁.

Cummings sister is a director of a chemical company based in Bernard Castle, two days after his visit there a huge contract was signed with the government. Must be eyewash.

5.) 25 May 2020 22:06:35
At sone time we will have to resort to normality and it has to be this year otherwise people will get very angry.
Its ok queing in the sun but imagine Christmas shopping with theses restrictions?
Its a 70 day pendamic in every country then it goes.
The world can't afford another lockdown so life has to return to normal.

6.) 25 May 2020 22:37:15
51- I didn’t hear that mate, I thought he said his wife felt ill and when he got home from work she started to feel a bit better so he went back to work, when he got back home that night he felt ill himself and then went up north?

Although I thought some parts were a bit awkward, he explained it all and in his circumstances I think he did what most people would. The people asking questions at the end should be ashamed of themselves-utter embarrassment waste of time and pointless, didn’t even listen or discuss what he said or have the speed of thought to quiz him.

On Cummings. Wife drives but he drives to a beauty spot 30 miles away to see whether he could see enough to drive to London. Oh, it was also her birthday. Excuse me?

11.) 26 May 2020 20:45:25
I think the bottom line on Cummings is, you can’t ask people to do something, and then not do it yourself, he should resign end of, what sickens me is the lynch mob mentality of the press in this country, and the igmony of listening to the odious alistair Campbell, Blair’s lapdog and professional liar taking the moral high ground, a man who helped send British troops to war, and in some cases to their deaths, with his so called ‘dodgy dossier’ he should be in prison not lecturing other people on rights and wrongs,

12.) 26 May 2020 22:20:20
Stevie, you’re right about Campbell and right about the press.



24 May 2020 12:06:08
Exciting day for us. Hopefully the club players and staf have been observing lock down and are mostly the virus free! Time to play the remaining 11 games.

1.) 24 May 2020 13:04:00
Don't play them if it's behind closed doors, though. Not a big fan of that idea.

It turns out the lockdown laws have been open to interpretation all along. The good lady isn't feeling too well. So me the missus and the 3 kids are taking the caravan down to St. Ives parking it up on her sister in laws drive for 14 days and 'self isolating' down there. Hopefully it'll be nice weather. And it's perfectly legal. Apparently.

2.) 24 May 2020 13:49:01
Some things can be legal but common sense can tell you it’s a stupid thing to do - Individuals will always find a way around things that’s why it’s very difficult to cover all angles. Common sense appears to not be very common.

3.) 24 May 2020 14:20:16
We thought there were actual laws that we couldn't travel anywhere so we've essentially been stuck in the house for 8 weeks when we could have gone down there from the start. So we've decided to go down in the morning.

4.) 24 May 2020 15:41:42
Their are instructions that have been broadcast by Boris which he strongly advises you adhere to, and their are civil rights which govern your civil liberties. Those are the ones which are in dispute with Cummings.

5.) 24 May 2020 16:12:59
Just stay at home Psycho, your caravan is not welcome in the west country, just spreading more disease 💀

6.) 24 May 2020 16:59:16
I’m sure you’ll get a warm welcome from the locals 🤷🏻‍♂️. I wouldn’t really want to ruin anyone’s fun but I hope you get sent back.

7.) 24 May 2020 17:24:57
Childcare so they don't catch anything. The missus' sister-in-law will look after the kids in the house while we're in the caravan. Keep her company while the missus' brother is in Iraq with the army. Two birds one stone. We're doing nothing wrong.

8.) 24 May 2020 17:22:36
Where I live, we've been stuck in doors since Lock Down, I've noticed when I take my dog out for a hour, the roads are getting really busy?
Sometimes I feel like a spare one?

On our local PSNI Twitter account, the Police are praising people for "Staying off our roads, and saving lives". I was enraged!
And was going to say "Seriously? Not in my area! "
So frustrating!

9.) 24 May 2020 17:38:27
Yes you are you are travelling and staying overnight, you could look after the kids at home, plus the kids will probably want to go to the beach and have ice cream, my nephew is Portlander as i am and he says they feel like a second lock down can't move for Covidiots, stay at home mate don't deliver death ☠

10.) 24 May 2020 17:50:04
According to the Prime Minister we'll be 'acting responsibly, legally and with integrity'. It's the missus' birthday on Friday so we might even visit one of the castle's in that area.

11.) 24 May 2020 18:36:17
Good wind up Psycho, the castles piece let you down, at least i hope you are on a wind up or you are a bigger pratt than I thought 🤔

12.) 24 May 2020 19:09:47
You do know there are castles in that area don't you. Although the missus' sister-in-law have told us there closed at the minute so we won't be visiting any after all. Should still be a good fortnight though.

13.) 24 May 2020 19:30:51
Hope you enjoy your holiday if you don't post for a while then we know its not a wind up and that you have the virus or arrested by the Cornwall police 🚨 😁

14.) 24 May 2020 19:47:08
Unbelievable-I really do hope you are trying to wind us up but unfortunately I think this is what we all have to deal with 🤡.

15.) 24 May 2020 19:48:38
Get arrested for what? We're doing nothing wrong. The Prime Minister effectively gave us his blessing today. It's perfectly legal. Just protecting the kids from getting whatever the missus has got. Putting my young uns first. If it's good enough for the goose it's good enough for the gander.

2tone some people don't understand why locals get wind up 2 doctors surgeries your lucky to get into a small accident and emergency are nearest hospital over 20 miles away 3 average supermarkets us locals still queuing up to get into the extra pressure on these is not good I miss the holiday makers they keep us in work and bring joy to the town and I will be glad when there back but as for most English holiday resorts at the minute we're not geared up and ready for them or the risk of the spread of the virus if you look at Greece and Spain resorts they have measures in place I wouldn't tell anyone what to do or not to do i think most people are sensible and can make there own decisions I just want everyone to stay safe holiday makers and locals will be glad when we open back up again and I can grab a beer with some of you that comes to skegs stay safe everyone.

18.) 25 May 2020 10:56:44
Good post skegs, common sense required that’s all, surely people don’t require the prime minister to tell them what’s sense and what’s not, and if the prime ministers aide has been a plank, doesn’t mean everyone else has to follow suit, psycho does what he thinks best for his family and I wouldn’t presume to pass comment on his situation, but applying general common sense will get us through this quicker,

19.) 25 May 2020 22:00:46
If psycho wants to get there without priblems towing a caravan then he should have got a van and put tarmacing and driveways on it.
Defo not get bothered then 😉😉.



17 Feb 2020 22:17:35
“I feel the same as the fans - against a strong team, don’t worry, we will be there.
Sabri Lamouchi celebrates for Nottingham Forest against West Brom

“Against teams not at the same level, we need to increase our level to be more determined and make the difference. ”

Even though the boss says it and I do, I know I'm always wrong FF79 so it's not worth mentioning.

But if we don't beat the bottom teams we are screwed.

We have still only lost once to a top 7 team. However we are not playing one until April. THIS is the test.

Start beating the bottom teams or we are in this division for another year. End of story.

1.) 18 Feb 2020 05:01:49
We play Bristol city in march.

2.) 18 Feb 2020 07:23:57
We need to beat teams when samba sow doesn't play is the answer not so much who they are.

3.) 18 Feb 2020 10:49:59
We need to take it one game at a time play our best 11 and play every game like a cup final 13 games to go win 8 and i'd say were well in play offs.

4.) 18 Feb 2020 13:06:14
We will beat Bristol then!

Surely the best 11 is the in-form 11. So that would mean dropping Grabban for the next game as his form is poor. We played him again and he did diddly-squat again. My guess is that he is carrying an injury but I could be wrong.

We rested Cash and he scored against the team who were top of the league when he came back.

I agree that we should try to play the best team we can every game but it isn't as black and white as we all wish it was. The boss watches training and talks to the medical team and with modern medical science they know exactly who is genuinely 100% fit. We don't. They also keep it quiet sometimes when a player is not truly fit for obvious reasons.

I'm still thinking that we can do it but we haven't consistently beaten teams lower down for years. We have to start doing that now whatever team we put out. Everything crossed for the run-in.

Come on Forest. Do it for us.

5.) 18 Feb 2020 15:05:52
Sadly the best 11 is black and white, the legacy of a garbage looking January window, there isn't really genuine competition for places in any position on the pitch.

6.) 18 Feb 2020 15:35:08
Yes I agree we need more depth. On the other hand we have some good young players. If we keep signing players then when will they ever get the chance?

My other point wasn't about rotation in the way you might think. What I mean is that what we think is the "best team" sometimes isn't because the medical team and boss know details about fitness we don't. so we might THINK we have not played the best team when actually we have made the best use of resources.

(e. g. If Cash was tired or had a minor fitness issue we are not privy to so we rest him. Then he is brilliant after the rest then it could be a good decision even though it looks a bad one at the time. If we played him when not fit and he picks up an injury or struggles that is bad management.

It really isn't black and white no matter how desperately annoying it is when we can't put the same 11 out every week. If we could why would we need more depth? Obvious really.

7.) 18 Feb 2020 15:38:05
Also if the squad is only poor because of the January window then why was it good enough to put us just outside the top two places before we signed more players?

As football fans we let disappointments (e. g. in transfer or selection) twist our opinion too readily. One minute Lamouchi is the Messiah. Next minute he's a liar and doesn't have a clue. Neither is true.

8.) 18 Feb 2020 16:03:25
Redcyclist yoir just going round in circles with your daft arguments we play the best 11 and take each game as it comes if we make play offs we make play offs its a bonus nobody expected us to make top 6 with lamouchi and the squad at the start of the season so the rest is a bonus happy days uredddssss.

9.) 18 Feb 2020 16:42:55
We're in the top two places without really utilising much of the squad, its becoming all too evident which eleven players need to be on the pitch to get a result. Lamouchis not culpable, he's done a great job of giving a pretty average bunch of footballers an approach that gets results.

I also doubt he was part of the January window that gave him nothing to build on what he's done so far. Amazing when you consider we go into one of the biggest seasons end for many a year.

I seem to remember that one or two on here criticised the club getting an unknown foreign manager with no experience of English football and then he was further slaughtered for making unknown foreign signings that were as crap as the dross we already had at the club. All because we hadn't spent a fortune and their alleged stats. We were in a relegation battle before we had even kicked off the season .
My point is let's just give the new lads a chance to settle in and blend in with the squad then judge them .
cant believe some fans and how quick they are to jump on players backs to criticise.

I am with you Skegsjay. It's so easy to be hyper analytical and over critical. Lamouchi has excelled with the squad that has been available to him.

Skegs, If you're going to say someone is making daft arguments then you need to say what is daft about them otherwise you are just blowing hot air. Or is it just a fact that I'm not really daft at all?

Contrary to the headlines, no it is not a shock defeat tonight. we don't beat the bottom teams consistently at all and it is NOT a shock when we don't. It is a shock when we don't beat the top teams.

Don't worry fans we still have a few more low flying teams to play yet. Play Stoke last game l think, if it meant a win against them we get into the playoffs what team would he play, it don't bear thinking about.

Nothing to do with lower team tonight Lamouchi gave them three points with the team he put out.
We simply don't have a squad good enough to make five changes and expect anything other than defeat.
WBA will play tomorrow do you think they will rest player?
Of course they wont, the fans weren't behind Lamouchi tonight and all I heard while leaving the ground was pure frustration and bewilderment as to why he disrespected a championship side by putting a reserve team out and expecting victory.
Most of us knew it would end in failure and for the third to fourth time he's still done it.
Think he's done a great job but let's himself down by over thing things.
Bottom line is we've took 3 points from nine and he has a terrible attitude towards sides scrapping for survival, he needs to cut that out out and when it comes to games in 7 days God knows what he'll do at Easter?
Pack in trying to be clever put the best eleven out it's not just us that have to play 3 games every 7 days, its goes for the rest of the championship and our second string is crap with a capital K.

Forest results against top 7 teams:-
West Brom: L
Leeds: D, W
Fulham: W
Brentford: W, W
Preston: D
Bristol City: D

We have only lost once this season to one of the top 7 (WBA who are top) .

As I keep saying, we just have to beat the bottom teams and we are on our way to the promised land. In December we played bottom half teams and couldn't win a game. If we can solve that Rubics cube then job done.

We beat some bottom team, Derby, Wigan, Barnsley, Birmingham home, Luton, there's just a few.

That foreign full back is also a good player.

My Mrs son is from Stoke and her lad follows Port Vale. They would keep him if they could. Apparently he might not fit our system so would need to alter his game but is good enough to play at a higher level given time.

If we pick up injuries we might need Benalouane.

Good! He'd most likely be a project. We want promotion this season.

On Cummings. Wife drives but he drives to a beauty spot 30 miles away to see whether he could see enough to drive to London. Oh, it was also her birthday. Excuse me?

Marinakis was cleared of match fixing by a court in Greece according to a report on 26 March 2018.

The authorities would have to prove the owner is responsble to ban him. Even if he knew about it my guess is that it would be impossible to prove he was responsible. I doubt he is that stupid and became a billionnaire.

That won't stop Olympiacos getting relegated though obviously.

I'm with Ed003 on this. This is exactly the sort of time when the people running things are held to account. No question!

I'm not talking about resuming the season before they can. I just mean we finish the season when it is possible - whenever that is. There is no reason to not do so. And I agree with perks. we can play 9 games in 3 weeks. I'd play one every day for £5K a week.

But we don't even have to play that many in a short space of time. Just play them when we can. Start the next season late if we have to but stop this nonsense about not finishing the season. It will just be years and years of court battles if we don't which will kill football and destroy businesses - not to mention filling the lawyers bloated bank accounts while everyone struggles to get over the economics of the crisis.

If you can't afford to renew your season ticket then don't. If you can then it will help the club so why not do it? I'm not suggesting anyone does anything stupid obviously. But if you buy a season ticket you can watch the games when the next season starts even if it is late. I'm sure the club will give everyone their seats back next season if it can.

I didn't mean don't worry about Coronavirus impact on your lives folks. I mean don't have worries about football that are not necessary. It might do the game good in the long run if it has a financial reality check. The economics of it are that English football is better equipped than most other countries to get through this.

{Ed001's Note - just checking mate. Sometimes when people are well off they forget that others are not in the same position. Not saying you are well off, impossible to tell from here, but just didn't want it to seem like people should be pressured to buy even if they can't afford it.

I agree totally on the final paragraph, most other countries, maybe other than Germany, are going to struggle even in the top flight to survive.}
