Humble Pie collected and consumed and repeat double order made for Skeggs for the coming weeks!

Well done Monsieur Lamouchi for putting out a very resilient team. Having to defend deeper with our slowest centre back pairing made life difficult going forward but we coped well.

Muric's confidence is growing, Cash showed he can do a job at right back and Semedo looks a real find!

Looking forward to seeing the new defensive pairings introduced and Bostock who should get us ticking over a bit quicker in midfield to help the forwards.

More than happy if we can grind out results in the coming weeks whilst the everyone settles in and then push on.

Well done lads.

Redinexile agree with most of that, except the keeper looks like a rabbit in the headlights

2.) 10 Aug 2019 19:28:11
Great past Red and totally agree mate. Hope the whiners get on board after this and see we are a team in the making.
Not pointing the finger at you 79 before you jump into victor mode.

3.) 10 Aug 2019 20:12:37
Stevie The look is one of concentration! He will be fine and so far apart from his first day jitters he has been well protected.

4.) 10 Aug 2019 20:43:27
One shot on target one goal. Defended well but still well short upfront and will continue to struggle if we don't add someone to compliment Grabban and Mir upfront.

5.) 10 Aug 2019 20:56:12
Muric was poor again coming for crosses that he couldnโ€™t get cane running out for a ball that landed about 20yard away from him that bandied should of done better with.

6.) 10 Aug 2019 22:02:08
Yes redinexile but atent you the one that started calling the dof?
Funny what suits you in it? ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ.

7.) 10 Aug 2019 22:24:56
Content with the draw. Probably didn't deserve it. Grabban for me is poor. He's too eager to pull shirts and find himself offside. Lucky toe poke but fouled just before that. Other than Semedo, Sow and Ameobi thought we had no direction and looked no better than the O'Neil days. Lolley needs to get on his game again.

8.) 10 Aug 2019 22:52:37
Hey Redinexile. Pity you chose not to go because you feared the worse.

9.) 10 Aug 2019 23:03:33
I can see exactly what your saying stevie, a good point but its difficult to see how we can take the game to the opposition.
Grabban isolated for the most part feeding off scraps, this is where I don't see why Watson gets a game, he's too slow and colback was the same although technically better.
You have to have pace to worry the opposition and when ameobi came on Leeds suddenly had a problem up to that they didn't.
The fact is that starting eleven will always struggle to score, not strong enough and not got the pace to trouble the opposition.

10.) 11 Aug 2019 17:05:10
Totally agree. Need a loan striker in asap. Out of those available would be Bony for me. Early days yet to comment on Mir but found him pushed off the ball far too easily.
Ameobi is an absolute animal. Definitely got to be in the first 11 here on in.

11.) 11 Aug 2019 17:59:32
Held my breath on every corner, Muric looks vulnerable rooted to the spot

12.) 11 Aug 2019 18:47:33
Not sure what game you were watching, Red, but Matty Cash is no good at right back. Never stops a cross. Keeper doesn't fill me with much confidence either as yet.

13.) 11 Aug 2019 20:40:45
Was more impressed with Cash at right back this time. Admit the keeper is still a bag of nerves and have to say Robinson was left a bit isolated and was lucky only got a booking and not to give away a penalty. Going forward was and stil is a big problem with only Grabban to aim for.

14.) 11 Aug 2019 20:17:02
we do need a striker but in the mean time i'm sure we will set up differently against other sides. We have played 2 of the favourites for promotion and away to one of them, its all about tactics for each game.

15.) 12 Aug 2019 09:30:52
Victor Just calling it how I see it! As for the DoF the jury to still out. However, at least I do not write players off before they have kicked a ball for the club? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿค

I trust you have opened an account at The Humble Pie Shop for the coming weeks? ๐Ÿคฃ.

16.) 12 Aug 2019 13:40:29
Wow that didn't take long for the happy clappers to come out in force i think i will save my clapping for when we put a half decent run together or at least 1 win lol ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚.

17.) 12 Aug 2019 20:10:03
Skeg I totally agree. I quote from reds post. A resilient team . Hmmm.! The defence making life difficult? ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.
Pigs might fly and unicorns are real. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘.



08 Aug 2019 09:22:46
Dwight Gale has not been allocated a squad number unlike Colback

Brucey clearly wants to sell and WBA have been refused a loan deal.

Do we have enough in the kitty on top of ยฃ7m saved on McKenna signing Rodriguez to blow the Championship away?

Come on Dourekas show us you have what it takes?



1.) 08 Aug 2019 10:01:52
Could see if they will swap gale for about 10 of players worth an ask lol.

2.) 08 Aug 2019 10:08:13
Would be perfect Red and send us into the Premier league. That's why it won't happen sadly ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ.

3.) 08 Aug 2019 11:17:55
Gayle would fetch between ยฃ15-ยฃ20 Imo. ยฃ7m quoted as available, is only speculation. Unless Carvs goes to Olympiacos or the owners 'do a Derby', we don't have that kind of money to spend. PL loan striker our best bet.

4.) 08 Aug 2019 17:38:03
Loan would be most likely but havenโ€™t heard owt about it, only striker talk is the Mendy lad whose record doesnโ€™t scream goal scorer, think he scored 7 goals in 30 odd games.

5.) 08 Aug 2019 18:32:32
Mendy has turned forest down.
He's had an offer from another French club.



06 Aug 2019 16:23:38
Rumour has it that our esteemed DoF was offered Wayne Rooney before Derby made contact but declined as he had never heard of him? ๐Ÿง๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคฃ.


1.) 06 Aug 2019 17:03:42
That would be funny Red if it wasn't so near to the truth.

2.) 06 Aug 2019 17:46:53
Red it wouldn't surprise me if that was actually true! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜.

3.) 06 Aug 2019 17:56:47
I donโ€™t follow England, Everton or Man U so I havnt a clue who he is!



05 Aug 2019 10:48:40
Hopefully the Lamouchi jigsaw will be completed this week with his remaining targets landed and the surplus to requirements moved out on deadline day?

What is certain we are not going to compete with 20 and 22 year old rookies holding down the 2 key positions on the pitch!

Samba, Jenkinson and Shane Long will do for me rather than our DoF flicking through his Panini sticker album?



1.) 05 Aug 2019 11:10:23
I think that jigsaw is more than 3 pieces missing and fear it's one of those jigsaws of plate of beans that will take him most of the season to work out lol.

2.) 05 Aug 2019 11:21:53
Shane Long? Would rather have Shane Ritchie. At almost 33 we'd end up with another 35 year old we are trying to offload in two years ala Murphy.

3.) 05 Aug 2019 14:35:53
Shane Long. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚!

4.) 05 Aug 2019 15:10:02
Steviec26 no Shane Warne mate confuse em with a bit of leg spin.

5.) 05 Aug 2019 16:56:56
So where are we going to find ยฃ20m to buy a top striker?

6.) 05 Aug 2019 18:27:48
ยฃ20million? . where did you come up with that figure?
Instead of funding the city ground marinakis should prioritise whether he wants promotion or a shiny upgraded and modern stadium.
The influx of these stellar signings is beyond a joke Red.
Prepare for a hard laborious season.

7.) 05 Aug 2019 19:32:51
Won't be "Long" untill we're in League One!



31 Jul 2019 23:43:29
McBurnie to Sheff Utd for ยฃ20m is the reason Forest will not be signing a proven Championship striker.

Everyone needs to chip in this season and we have the players capable if the coach can get us playing on the front foot!


1.) 01 Aug 2019 11:24:53
Walker loan to Lincoln? Leaving 2 strikers? We must have plans for at least 1 incoming, too late for Sat probably. Risky business.

2.) 01 Aug 2019 12:30:57
Wonder who Olympiacos will get?

3.) 01 Aug 2019 12:47:58
Got to sign a striker now, it would be madness to go into the season with just grabban and olly.

4.) 01 Aug 2019 18:12:43
dwight gayle still at newcastle. don't understand why we won't go in for him on loan and pay a small loan fee of 1/ 2mil.

5.) 02 Aug 2019 07:47:19
Gayle would be a good shout. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜.

6.) 02 Aug 2019 16:37:37
Somebody with that kind of record should be in our sights.

7.) 02 Aug 2019 23:45:39
The dof has a blind spot when it comes to strikers.
The austerity in Greece had a very bad impact on him, so he just keeps wasting money on defence, nothing wrong in that as building from the back is a good thing, but this guy couldn't build Lego and there lies our problem.
We had the scenario when doughty owned the club and trusted that waste of space in charge of things .
We had a good dof who left for WBA so that tells you something๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.

8.) 03 Aug 2019 08:50:05
End of having to play Murphy and Cummings because we can't get rid of them! Sad.

Well done today boys. Steady and sure wins the race!

Nice to see we can play attacking football with 2 holding midfielders in the side and mixing up the squad selection.

As per usual ( Stella Skeg apart) there is not one Foremoaner coming on giving the team any praise!

They post that they are predicting Xmas to see the back of our coach even though based on last season this proved a pointless deadline!

If they had the courage of their convictions they would be demanding a change after today's game as so far we are on target to only get 61 points this season? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿฅ”๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Come on guys let's be having you?

COYR's Onward and Upward!


1.) 18 Aug 2019 10:03:36
Redinexile. You talk about having courage of your convictions. Well you didn't show much courage when you chose not to go to watch us play at your 'local' ground (Leeds) because you thought we would lose. What a hypocrite.



16 Aug 2019 18:53:52
I see that Monsieur Lamouchi is happy with his squad and wants to concentrate on the next 5 games!

He has obviously been reading the forum banter and conscious that the Foremoaner's will not give him more than 5 games before they call for his head? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿคฃ

Onward and Upward.


1.) 16 Aug 2019 19:25:53
Jury's out for me. surely someone has to get it right?
Why not him. or maybe not, as I say jury's out.

2.) 16 Aug 2019 19:31:13
I hope he gets to concentrate on the next couple of seasons but I'm sure you and the happy clapping crew will stop clapping and asked for him to be sacked by Xmas if he's not in the top 10 ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿป.

3.) 16 Aug 2019 19:55:06
Skegs if we aren't in the top ten by Xmas after all the players we have signed, it will only show we still are not good enough.

4.) 16 Aug 2019 20:06:41
No - it shows the DOF isnโ€™t good enough at identifying the right players.

5.) 16 Aug 2019 20:19:37
Or won't/ can't push the boat out for a top class striker.

6.) 16 Aug 2019 21:35:53
But could if weโ€™d have just added the two / three players to the existing squad .

7.) 16 Aug 2019 21:43:31
If we lose against the sheep the owner won't be happy knowing how important it is to us fans the clock will start ticking. โฐโฐ.

8.) 16 Aug 2019 22:51:37
52 the clock was ticking when he took the job as manager to me he was bought in just as a fall guy if he's top 6 by Xmas he will be sacked and replaced by a big named manager if he's bottom half come xmas he will be sacked there's a method behind the madness in bringing him in.

9.) 16 Aug 2019 23:16:42
Oh dear Skeg you just cannot help yourself?

The season is over 46 games not 23 so your Christmas deadline is irrelevant ( abeit for you an improvement on your 10 games deadline from last season! )!

We made that mistake last season so hopefully Mr M and his Mini M's on this site will have learnt their lesson not to pull the trigger until we get at least a full season to evaluate progress. We have signed players that potentially are at entering their peak in terms of age so for once we should not be throwing out the baby with the bathwater but hosing down short term expectation?

Stella tipple is a depressant so try a little pick me up when staring into your half empty glass?

10.) 17 Aug 2019 07:02:59
Im not sure how much money you guys think forest have to spend? You realise we canโ€™t spend whatever we want and have to account for the money. This years spending will have been accounted from the sale of Osborn and whatever money we had left over from last season. FFP is still a threat that looms large and we need to make sure we stay within, we also need to make sure we operate to make a profit rather than a loss, so that eventually we can get that โ€œtop quality strikerโ€ for me itโ€™s much more important to build a balanced team than to buy one player and not get the service to him.

11.) 17 Aug 2019 07:31:37
Red the usual carp from you fart box. The benchmark for Lamouchi will be Xmas. If we're not in the playoff position questions will be asked.
Lamouchi knew the agenda as soon as he walked into the job.
Marinakis wants Promotion at all costs.
Lamouchi like O'neil and Karanka are expendable.
Instead of playing football manager with you fez whilst in your lazy boy chair try taking of your Elton john glasses and go to a match. it may open your eyes. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

12.) 17 Aug 2019 08:07:46
Red, youโ€™re deluded the chairman believes the DOF has assembled a promotion squad, skeg is correct if we are not in the mix Early itโ€™s bang bang.

13.) 17 Aug 2019 09:31:56
Lol red, rather be on the Stella than that happy clapping juice you drink ๐Ÿ˜œ and ormfitt if we hadn't of wasted a lot of money last season, we would be in a far better position this season and as 2 star said, 3 or 4 decent signings not 12 average and to my dear friend fbb sticks and stones.

I would love nothing more than to sit watching my great team from one of the lovely seats at the city ground, but I don't have the luxury of chilling on a Saturday afternoon and definitely not from a cosy chair at home as I after work mate. priorities, ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ but you carry on going to watch the game for me in your Rose tinted happy clapping goggles.

I'm sure if I ask you how the game went later and we lost 5 nil, you would still find the sun shining out of there backsides. ๐Ÿ˜ look forward to listening into your on the spot match verdict later fbb but now back to reality and work. hope everyone who goes to the game later enjoys and hopefully a win ๐Ÿ‘.

14.) 17 Aug 2019 11:45:46
Lol skeg. i like your post. But get it right. Red prefers the elton jonh star type glasses that make horses into unicorns and lamouchi and Co as good as pep. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

15.) 17 Aug 2019 12:36:48
DOF deluded if he thinks we are going up with those two strikers. Can sack Lamouchi but won't change anything.

16.) 17 Aug 2019 13:08:03
Red, they really don't like it if you have a positive attitude, they're still whining about 'what if's' and we've only played 2 league games. Think they will be needing CPR after the next 44:)

Maybe let's just enjoy the game in front of us and support the Red's today, come on Forest.

17.) 17 Aug 2019 23:51:21
Ginger. The Mini M's are as deluded as Mr M if they think chopping and changing managers is going to get promotion. You'd thing they want us to fail in order to justify their sad expectations of life?

Can anyone explain to me why Man City escaped a transfer ban, and were fined a measly 135,000?
For blatantly breaching FIFA rules regarding under 18 signings?
Yet we got crucified?

3.) 13 Aug 2019 19:27:01
Backhanders and politics.

4.) 13 Aug 2019 19:58:16
And Chelsea got a 1 year ban and ยฃ350k. the fa said they didnโ€™t ban Man City because they admitted what they did. they still did it regardless.

5.) 13 Aug 2019 20:29:47
Because Man City are Premier League so the FA aren't going to want to upset them. Privileged positions.



09 Aug 2019 22:14:29
Just to get some perspective on all the comings and goings we need to look back at the facts.

This time last year we had 12 players who were in the squad and played but are no longer with us:


So the question is, are the 12 new signings better than those discarded?

For me Byram + Colback apart the newbies have not much to beat and in Jenkinson plus Sow + Bostock iin terms of strength and size we have replaced them.

Things can only get better over the season?



1.) 09 Aug 2019 22:32:17
You keep telling yourself that red I do but for me we will be on 0 points after 5 games.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 23:06:29
Exactly what I've said skeggs.
It might be there are some good signings in there, but without a preseason behind us with them and whether they are match fit is of great concern, not to mention when you acquire so many players it takes time to find the right blend.
This is not moaning just saying how I see it.
Red anyone can make anything look better on paper, that's not how football works.

3.) 10 Aug 2019 05:01:24
Pele wague and bonatini joined in Jan so was not here this time last year.



09 Aug 2019 09:23:27
As the dust and red mist settles the squad changes become clearer with the window still open to get rid of at least 6 more
Pants - Olypmiacos
Hefele- Germany
Bridcutt -Sunderland
Clough -Oldham
Guedioura - Middle East
Cummings - Dustbin!

That leaves a manageable 30 man squad.
Keeper- Muric Samba Smith
Full Back- Jenkinson Darikwa Robinson Ribeiro Richardson
Central Defender- Worrall Dawson Figueiredo Benalouane Rodriguez
Wide Midfield -Cash Adomah Appiah Lolley
Centre Midfield - Sow Yacoub Watson Bostock Semedo Yates
Attacking Midfield - Carvalho Silva
Striker - Mir Ameobi Grabban Murphy Johnson

Given we have 4 in their mid 30's and 6 youngsters we are going to need them all.

A quality striker is going to be the difference for a promotion slot but the squad is better balanced and physically stronger than last year so Mr Lamouchi over to you to coach the best out of them?



1.) 09 Aug 2019 11:49:47
Whereโ€™s milo?

2.) 09 Aug 2019 12:27:01
Milo is Minding the Squad.

Not even Harry Kane would look good playing for Forest in the first couple of games starved of service. Give Grabban a break he's a top striker at this level and Lamouchi has admitted and then adjusted the team knowing he needs to give him more support.

Assuming he stays fit and plays at least as many games he will top last seasons goal tally now we have some power in the middle of the park!
