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.

Good team effort yesterday but the stand out player for me is the awesome Samba Sow, our improvement has coincided with him getting game time, January shopping list a number 10 and a goalkeeper and we will be ok.


1.) 17 Jan 2021 09:21:48
Totally agree with Samba Sow comments, he’s the most consistent player on the pitch and never has a bad game. He was having a few runs forward yesterday as well, probs not the most elegant of players lol but effective. Gives 100% every game.

2.) 17 Jan 2021 09:46:20
He is a decent player for us, last years stats showed how many more points we we earnt when he was playing.

Pleased for Ameobi and Yates as they have received plenty of stick on here recently.

Great result and performance, well done Chris and Forest. People might not like his football but Hughton is definitely turning things around here and hopefully we will continue to pull away from the bottom.



11 Jan 2021 21:29:12
God save our gracious team! be nice to finish the job and knock Wales out of the cup.




10 Jan 2021 12:31:13
Anyone who watched yesterday's match can now see why Arter doesn't get a game in front of Yates, he looked very slow and struggled to complete the simplest of passes and no creativity, I think he's had his best years and can understand why he hasn't been playing regular football for the last couple of seasons, I really hope we didn't pay the 5m banded about and our other midfield player who looked out of his depth from yesterday who has been an ever present under CH is Cafu, can someone tell me what he brings to the side? .


1.) 10 Jan 2021 13:02:27
Arter looks shot to me, legs gone. Agreed cafu brings nothing. Looks to have talent at times but delivers little. So you see the squad that CH inherited has geen poorly assembled so i dislike all the harsh critiscm directed at hughton. He is better than these players can offer him. The internet says we paid £4.75 mil for Arter, are they wrong?

2.) 10 Jan 2021 14:13:32
What’s Yates excuse then because that description offered above describes Yates to a tee.



10 Jan 2021 08:34:49
Brilliant comments on black lives matter from Lyle Taylor on radio Nottingham , everyone on here should read his comments also published on Nottinghamshire live, such a level headed sensible guy, makes you proud that he's at our club.


1.) 10 Jan 2021 10:59:47
Skegby i posted as he was speaking yesterday. Great guy.
I think lyle has waite a long time to maje that statement. Now he is top scorer so should start every gsme. Do you think their is a divide in the dressing room over how lyle feels?

2.) 10 Jan 2021 11:19:25
can't agree more! Black lives matter is a political mouthpiece. I have been amongst West Indians and Indians since the early 60's and used to go out drinking on a Friday night with some. The west Indians didn't mind being described as black the Indians preferred to be called Brown than Black. Taylor is right there are too many people jumping in saying certain words shouldn't be used. If they can't be described as black, why don't they call it people of colour's lives matter. because Black lives excludes Brown, and also yellow.
Every life matters even White.
If someone is attacked and the police ask for a description, it really narrows it down to describe the assailant as a person of colour! It's all gone on far too long! It is beciming an irrelevant protest now. The longer it goes on the less impact it has. I think they could do it at the beginning, middle and end on and that would act as a reminder with more impact!

3.) 10 Jan 2021 11:55:12
Ive read Taylor's interview on Nottinghamshire live and agree with every word he says on the issue what a top bloke lyle is, well done to him saying and standing up for what he believes to be right obviously he's got a back bone good on you taylor.
People are people there colour is irrelevant everyone should be treated with respect, people should be judged for themselves not judged on the colour of there skin (people matter) .

4.) 10 Jan 2021 12:44:22
My daughter met him when he came to Forest Women’s Team to support his cancer charity. Great guy, level headed, articulate, intelligent, humble and very likeable. Grafted his heart out for the team yesterday and scored a great goal. He should be first on the team sheet every time imo.

5.) 10 Jan 2021 12:45:37
I would go down on any knee for any one, faith, colour or race . People are all the same to me, we are all together, equal, even through brexit.
I sometimes don't agree with what you are saying, but I defend your right to say it. So the saying goes.

6.) 10 Jan 2021 12:49:03
Damsonred, that's what it's all about, but they are not! .



09 Jan 2021 15:30:27
My Ratings for today as opposed to Sarah Claptrap,
Smith 7, very assured
Jenk 6, did ok
Bong 7, picked out LT for the goal
Big MAC and JW 8
both did well against the Ariel threat
Arter 4, off the pace, gave away to many free kicks lots of wayward passing, hope we really didn't pay £5m,
Cafu 4, still don't know what he does,
Sammi 4, Joe L 4
both really lacking in confidence, everything was wayward, poor first touch from both players,
Guerro 4, lots of effort no quality,
Lyle 8, played centre forward, right midfield, right back, 100% effort and scored with a great finish with absolutely no support and was never given any sort of pass apart from the goal.
The back four along with Jordon Smith and Lyle Taylor were the difference other than that we were poor.


1.) 09 Jan 2021 15:58:08
Hope we don't get Chorley.

2.) 09 Jan 2021 16:19:40
Need to avoid that banana skin but good to see the dirty sheep lose 🤣🤣
We've gone 6 games without a defeat we have now won 3 and drawn 3 that's a good bit of form hoping we can carry on with this good form and strengthen the squad with 2 or 3 gòod signings so sort it marrinakas and prove you care as much about forest as you do olympiacous you reds .

3.) 09 Jan 2021 16:44:38
It would be amazing if we got United, or Liverpool. and somehow dumped them out. what I'd give to come into work, and see there smug faces, changed to despair!
We can dream can't we?

4.) 09 Jan 2021 18:50:02
Hoping we get united or Liverpool at home too Rogie Red in the next round although a lower league team wouldn't be a bad thing as a good cup run would give our fringe players a chance to play and impress, like bong taylor and jenkinson they had a decent game today.

5.) 09 Jan 2021 18:56:36
Oh and always dream Rogie other wise a dream won't come true 🙄.

6.) 09 Jan 2021 19:21:46
We could do with a pool of players that are united 😁.

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.

As regards to Samba if I was a centre half he would be a nightmare to play in front of, he is so inconsistent with his decisions and one of the poorest keepers we've ever had in the air and commanding his area which puts more pressure on the defence, making a good save every now and then isn't good enough.

Smith Jenks and Bong at the back and Grabban playing behind Taylor for me but I think it will be business as usual for CH Samba Christie Riberio McKenna JW, Yates Sow Cafu, Knock Sammi or Lolley Grabban.

I thought Bong had a good game bearing in mind that his game time has been non existent and an assist that's one more than Riberio.

Agree humourist without football my dad who is in his 80's would have nothing to look forward to, its all about getting a balance, we have around 30 of us in a super 6 league between family and friends which keeps us all talking and of course the banter, also without football what would we have to say on this site, I for one really look forward to the Forest matches and find myself counting the days down to each match and we all hate international breaks, anyway its my excuse to get the beers out and I don't mind paying when not getting I follow for free because what else am I going to spend my hard earned money on.

Agree Stokey if Grabban is leaving if not Taylor along with the others need game time.
