Let's all get on the Marinakis out bandwagon, how many on here moaned about Ben Watson and Tiago Silva last season, mainly the top posters on here, They are basically all that's missing from the side that kept us in the top six most of last season apart from Matt Cash, we signed a IMO at the time a good replacement in Christie as cover who'd just won promotion, we signed Arter for CM another who had won promotion, we signed Colback DM from the prem, Knockerhart from the prem, Taylor top scorer at Charlton, McKenna scotland CB, Lamic Soh a 19 year old with huge potential for £3m, on paper we should have a squad to finish in the top six, who could have envisaged Samba Figueredo and Grabban between them would cost us a good 15 points through sloppy play and abysmal finishing, ok the players we've signed haven't worked but before a ball was kicked most of us thought they were all good signings and would see us near the top, so IMO Marinakis has backed the club but its the players who've let him and the fans down'.


1.) 02 Jan 2021 07:56:01
Don't forget Freeman he is another that at the time we thought he would make a massive difference and that hasn't worked out either.

2.) 02 Jan 2021 08:05:50
I tottaly agree that th eowner has backed the club, the blmae muct be with the players who have not performed, let shope in this window some decent players can com ein, but i very doubt that considering the position in the league the club is in now.

3.) 02 Jan 2021 10:54:05
Skegby you make very good points and i tend to agree but that's one side of the arguement. Personally i always liked Watson. An yes we miss a Silva creatively but he was wasteful at set pieces and rarely scored. Set in is ways SL was a massive problem and the Dof. I think with experience has come age and attitude. I think hughton is the right man and yes marinakis has backed the club. But has he used HIS money or the sale of our youth players to fund the madness. Look where we are? Re the players really good enough?

4.) 02 Jan 2021 14:10:33
Recruitment people need sacking they’ve wasted too much money for far too long.

5.) 02 Jan 2021 17:41:39
On paper?
Thats the thing you have got right.
14 players coming in equals disruption and lack of unity.



17 Jan 2020 18:50:41
NEP latest another 30 million rated lightweight Portuguese nearly man, let's get Lyle Taylor and Grosiki in ASAP both strong quick and can score goals at championship level and probably sign both for around £2 million and if we don't get promoted they would both be great additions for next season.


1.) 17 Jan 2020 19:31:46
Another unproven player.
Scorer 0 goals but hightly rated!
Hmmmmm. sounds like mendes has a tie with one. what a joke.
Don't understand why Lamouchi isn't been backed?
Is marinakis getting trigger happy again?

2.) 17 Jan 2020 19:32:57
Grosiki yes Taylor? No
Walker is better than Taylor and if Lincoln want compo then either pay them or offer other players we have as compo.

3.) 17 Jan 2020 19:39:46
Not another Joao we've got enough with the other clown 🤡.

4.) 17 Jan 2020 20:01:52
Look boys, so far we are signing.
Now the Portuguese lad at benfica.
We don't know if there was genuine interest its just journalists and Chinese whispers.

5.) 17 Jan 2020 20:30:21
We'll sign James Collins from Luton after he scores 2 against us on Sunday. We will win 3-2 of course with a Grabban hat trick 😁.

6.) 17 Jan 2020 20:33:20
Fawaz you don't know the deals that are happening behind closed doors so that's a bit presumptuous say SL isn't being backed.

7.) 17 Jan 2020 20:49:07
You are correct i don't know what is happening if anything.
At the minute he isn't being backed.
We have known for months key areas where players are required but instead of taking a proactive approach as usual forest drag their heels.
It seems we aren't serious about promotion.
We are over reliant with grabben and he gets injurered the goals will dry up.

8.) 17 Jan 2020 20:57:12
Has any club signed a player yet? Why are we complaining that Forest haven't. A lot of hard work going on in the background I'm sure, and our owner wants promotion just as much as the rest of us!

9.) 17 Jan 2020 21:11:23
Fawaz mate at least he isn't asking for 8 players or more like karanka every window?
He only wants a winger and a striker, now that's what I like to hear, just identifying what he sees as our weaknesses.
Very refreshing don't you think?

10.) 18 Jan 2020 07:14:21
Nooooo. you have done it ff. the name karanka hasn't been mentioned for ages until now! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣.
You're right though ff he hasn't asked for 8 but as he's asked for a striker perhaps he'll get a large box of matches instead.

11.) 18 Jan 2020 16:06:26
What is this carp about not serious about promotion? Nonsense.

Clubs are auctioning the available players. If we are bidding on a top player then expect the medical to be at the end of the window as clubs will try to get the maximum money for players and give clubs time to bid more. That is how it works. That is why not much business has been done by anyone yet.

You might want it to be easy to get the players you want but it isn't. Just because they haven't got the targets yet does not mean they haven't got targets and doesn't mean they won't get them.

Chill out!

12.) 18 Jan 2020 16:48:58
Good post cyclist and you echo my feelings.

13.) 18 Jan 2020 17:26:38
Unbelievable that people like FawazMark2 are still so negative. Win our 2 games in hand and we will be 2 points off second place. yet still finds something to moan about?!

14.) 18 Jan 2020 17:56:25
Cheers FF79

To take it a step further, the only way you get a player early in the window is if nobody else is interested in them (no thanks) or you pay silly money (no thanks Fawaz! ) .

So let's get a grip. January goes to the wire a lot of the time. Learn to love it. If it hurts reading speculation then don't read the papers or this site until February the 1st. I bet you can't manage it. :D.

15.) 18 Jan 2020 19:01:16
Red cyclist it's all about negotiation, prem clubs will part if they can get their targets first.
Not much happening in the prem so has a knock on effect.
So we look at the foreign market and you do get the option of a view to buy but usually at inflated prices.
It will all happen in the last few days when clubs get deals done that suits them.
Some fans compare the transfer market to doing the weekly shop, you see what you like on the shelf and buy it, football is big buisness and I do tend to think younger fans think 1p million is nothing and that isn't their fault it's just the way they've been bought up in this football world.
As a club the books have to be balanced, I don't actually agree with ffp as so long as an owner has the money and is willing to spend it and can't bankrupt the club, then let him or her spend their money I say.
But rules are rules so we should go along with them.
Marinakis will be delighted where we are and will know we need a few players and it will be done.
Hess invested so much and knows £150 million will bring back that investment while bringing us the biggest stadium in the east Midlands and putting forest back in the big time and the riches that brings.

James Garner is a good addition but is not the answer to our problems, he played in the last 6 matches last season which we collected just 4 points, If fans had been allowed in CH would have been sacked at the end of last season, he has to go.




20 Aug 2021 09:59:19
I'm not for keep changing managers but we haven't won any of our last 9 league matches only scoring 6 goals and conceding 12 and collecting just 4 points that is relegation form, I think they might give him until the international break but knowing Marinakis track record then even if we manage a win in the next 2 matches I think he will be gone.




19 Aug 2021 09:45:07
Why when Tutu got injured did CH not play static Jack at left back and bring Fornah / Cafu in CM surely that would have been a better option and why did he keep Colback on when on a yellow card and he was lucky not to be sent off, then to substitue Mighten for the hapless Carvalho beggers belief but at 1-1 he was settling for a draw at home and like he said in his post match interview Blackburn are a very good team just like every other team he's commented on who we've played.


1.) 19 Aug 2021 09:59:12
His comments on how good other teams are, whether they are or not mean we are playing Man City, Man Utd, Liverpool every week, he needs to get a grip.

2.) 19 Aug 2021 10:24:30
He even said Bradford were a ‘very good team’ league 2!



02 Aug 2021 12:17:02
I posted this tongue in cheek team prediction for our opening match, I should be on the BBC weather forecasting team.

21 May 2021 20:55:33
I think Mr Houghton will start next season with this starting eleven, I don't think Brennan Johnson will start and Worrall will go for £12 million,
Gabrial or possibly a new R/ Back
More of the same sh*te but I hope I'm wrong.



1.) 02 Aug 2021 12:36:30
Think Blackett is injured.

2.) 02 Aug 2021 12:56:14
Figs is injured as well.

3.) 02 Aug 2021 13:07:07
Yes Blackett injured but pretty close because if he was fit he would be playing, I'm disappointed that we haven't made any signings apart from the keeper but at least we've not wasted money on average overpaid journeymen.

4.) 02 Aug 2021 13:18:16
Skegby, yes sorry mate didn’t notice this prediction you made in May, yep I think you’re correct Blackett would be playing,



25 Jul 2021 09:24:32
So back to basics the team that CH put out was his A team, Samba back in goal after Jordan Smith pulled of some great saves in the previous matches, Samba was slow to react for both goals and both goals coming down our left hand side where Bong is defending and the guy for the first just strolled by Colback and another game where Grabban hasn't scored or had a shot on target, CH has had all summer to develop a side but the players I've mentioned will form the nucleus of the team for the coming season which looks like its going to be a long one.


1.) 25 Jul 2021 10:15:02
The American goalkeeper has had his visa sorted out, Hughton will get 3,maybe 4 new players all of which will spend most of the season as first choice players.

Mighten and Johnson are looking good, they are only friendlies, 2 more to go, fitness comes first, without the new players it is hard to know anything.

2.) 25 Jul 2021 11:08:26
I think the three or four players that will hopefully be coming in will be a LB a CM and a striker the fourth is open to debate.
Buchanan, Fleming, Nesbit or kulenovic would be good signings IMO and keep what we have accept the ones houghton has told are free to leave.

3.) 25 Jul 2021 11:11:12
Bong was very poor, with regard to the goals scored by Crewe. He does not close down enough, and he is slow. Brice should have done better with the second goal. It was a crossshot and his positioning was poor. I have said all along that Brice is not good enough. Hopefully the new keeper will come up to scratch.

4.) 25 Jul 2021 11:36:04
Be nice to hear what the new CEO thinks of two more than adequate LB,s being allowed to leave us with nothing in that position?
A few honest thoughts would go down great with us fans!

5.) 25 Jul 2021 13:04:45
Hughton has no control over when players are signed, he will have asked for players to be signed but that’s the end of it for him. It’s completely unreasonable to blame him for no players coming in as yet. In modern football the manager does not sign players or have any control over the speed of the process . Whatever you think of hughton as a manager is one thing but stop judging him for things that aren’t his job, if you were a joiner would you accept getting a rollicking because the plumbing leaks?

6.) 25 Jul 2021 13:14:55
It is not the CEO that needs to be asked that question it is the owner, he has to agree to important decisions.

7.) 25 Jul 2021 18:13:43
I like his opinion or is he just another lacking?

8.) 25 Jul 2021 19:18:33
Good for you that it is his opinion you want, his opinion though means nothing, if he is honest he will upset his new employer, if he takes the company line you will be unhappy.

The loannu decision was made long before the new CEO arrived, even though Hughton will have some say ultimately the owner has the final say.

9.) 25 Jul 2021 20:52:28
Damsonred I've only seen Buchanan a couple of times, the last time I saw him he was taken to school all night, absolutely embarrassed by Anthony knockeart, and people on here keep telling me he’s crap, so not exactly a good recommendation,

10.) 25 Jul 2021 23:08:02
Knockheart is just not a team player stevie along with Taylor, now and then they do something out the ordinary, but aren't players you can rely on to produce every game or even 50%.
Knockheart was awful for the most part and as for Bucanan deal won't go through as Derby don't like doing business with us.

So Grabban has a hip injury that's why he's been rubbish but how long as he had this injury he has only scored in two games in open play with no assists out of his last 25 games going back to the end of January, In the same period our out of form winger Joe Lolley as scored in four games and assisted in four games, its a stat that shows just how poor Grabban has been for months.

Agree 2star both lightweight and both very slow and like you say both struggle to see a pass, I'm not sure what the answer is but we never really replaced the Sow Silva and Watson partnership and I don't think we have the strength in the current squad to fill this void and until we do we will struggle.

Agree Gazza also Samba Sow is another player we are missing he would have battled it out on Sunday, Garner probably showing that he isn't physically strong enough for the championship we are in desperate need of a strong motivational midfielder and please give the captaincy to Worrall whoever is in charge.

I'll probably get criticised for this post but this is how I see it, The club outside the playing staff are in a lot better position from the Fawaz era can people remember us being in court every other week for non payment of tax, players wages not being paid, not being able to open all of the ground because of health and safety issue's, the recruitment side has been dire the people put in charge have let the club down but I think Marinakis will get it right, we all thought CH was a good appointment or most of us did and SL needed to go so we more or less got our wishes, Colback Arter Dawson Knockheart Freeman Taylor should have been quality signings in this league but didn't work out, the current manager has a lot to answer to he as been abysmal but Marinakis shouldn't be blamed IMO, who could have thought he could be as bad as he is.

Good shout IMO got experience at high level and a year to prove himself and we might see the end of Figgs, hope so anyway.
