apparently reading are after alfa semedo. i can't think why. what did they see in him last season that we didn't. just another one of a long list of failures that was brought to the club. having said that, he'll probably come back to haunt us now.


1.) 14 Sep 2020 20:14:26
They thought they were getting a Alfa Romeo then found out they had got a player 🤣.



14 Sep 2020 09:00:00
apparently reading are closing in on the signing of alfa semedo. what do they see that we didn't when he was with us.


1.) 14 Sep 2020 11:52:01
He has an engine but is slight but they might get a tune out of him. Injury prone.



03 Sep 2020 17:52:23
looks like sl has confirmed that the spanish striker migual guerrero is on his way from olympiacos.


1.) 03 Sep 2020 18:14:20
Great another useless player Olympiacos wants rid of!

2.) 03 Sep 2020 18:59:04
If it’s not Benfica it’s Olympiakos. Why can’t the return favour and take calvalho for 13m he cost us.

3.) 03 Sep 2020 19:04:55
Four strikers . One up front😴😴😴😴.

4.) 03 Sep 2020 19:22:49
Are you ever happy RB.

5.) 03 Sep 2020 21:21:55
Lamouchi has been forced to take the Olympiacos dud, that's obvious, probably because he's got others that he wants. Let's hope he doesn't HAVE to use him.

6.) 03 Sep 2020 21:23:55
Only when he's popping balloons!

7.) 04 Sep 2020 06:54:53
Always happy mate. If your happy too with 1 up top, 30% possession 2 shots target and passing back to the keeper from inside the opponent's half, go for it pal . If I'm accused of being miserable for craving entertainment by what is part of the entertainment industry then guilty as charged 🤷🎈.

8.) 04 Sep 2020 07:40:34
Sometimes it’s best to call it a day though 🎈if it doesn’t make you happy and you can’t change it, is it worth moaning about?

9.) 04 Sep 2020 10:02:09
Cause it is 2 tone I along with thousands of other supporters have been following and funding Forest longer than anybody who works, plays, or owns the club and it's been in decline for 20 years.
There was a bloke who fought for what he thought was right but people thought he couldn't change things.
Think his name was Churchill or something 😎🎈.

10.) 04 Sep 2020 12:38:25
Is that the same ‘Churchill’ who does cheap car insurance? 🤣.

11.) 04 Sep 2020 13:58:27
Maybe we will play with 2 up top, shall we wait and see.

Looking forward to watching the game tomorrow, not expecting a classic, but just great to see them playing again.

12.) 04 Sep 2020 19:54:33
M. A. G. Miguel Angel Guerrero roughing up other teams players and feeding the ball to either Grabban or Taylor, we can dream. I think the strikers will be rotated, horses for courses.



28 Aug 2020 16:51:36
so tyler walker sings for coventry. i sincerely hope he does well and progressess in his career. he was never going to get a proper chance with us so probably best thing for him at this stage. hope he don't come back to haunt us though.


1.) 28 Aug 2020 17:11:34
Multi-tasking - singing and scoring for Coventry?



19 Aug 2020 15:17:14
oops we are linked to yet another young Portuguese midfielder who has apparently been told he has no future with benfica.


1.) 19 Aug 2020 16:20:42
I’ve seen h a couple of times on tv wasn’t impressed, hope he had 2 off days!

2.) 19 Aug 2020 17:19:00
Another Mendes client? The fella has a lot to answer for.

i think the upcoming internationals break could be a good thing. it will give the new players time to settle in and get to know each other and work on a few things on the training ground, hopefully not just defending. would also but great for confidence if we could go into the break on the back of a win although that's going to be tough against bristol city. somebody once said, its a funny old game so you never know.


1.) 29 Sep 2020 12:15:33
100% agree I usually don’t like breaks but could work in our favour.

2.) 29 Sep 2020 12:49:08
We will win comfortably with a couple of our new boys and the break will be a bad time. God I feel pessimistic at the moment.

Give me some good news please somebody. Even a cat stuck in tree story would be better than recent events.

3.) 29 Sep 2020 13:57:21
Good news mate!
Just ordered my Forest Face Mask!

4.) 29 Sep 2020 15:11:50
Red Cyclist - Good news, you can save at least 2 pints worth of money with the new early closing.

Bad news - You just have to start drinking earlier to get your quota in.

I'm optimistic like Smithy on this one.

5.) 29 Sep 2020 16:29:04
Sorry can,t give any good news but I know of a good joke,
Alexander Boris De pfeffle Johnson ,been a sound replacement for Peter Kay ,a real comedian.

6.) 29 Sep 2020 17:03:05
No mate most of the best comedians are lefties the pick of them Diane ‘ Einstein’’ Abbott, and Jeremy Corbyn,



27 Sep 2020 16:46:24
well that's 3 out of 3 for our next opponents bristol city so a nice easy game to come for us.




27 Sep 2020 09:32:45
whether we want him to stay or not, i think maranakis with give lamouchi more time after signing all these new players. they are going to need time to gel and throwing so many in on friday night was asking for trouble. i could be wrong but personally i think he'll get time to see what he can do with them once they're all settled in and up to speed. how long he will get is another matter. the potential is there but has lamouchi got it in his locker to turn them into a good side and how long is it going to take. hopefully things change sooner rather than later because its been a shocking start to the season and an embarrassment all round.


1.) 27 Sep 2020 10:18:31
I think you are right. No one knows what is SL’s mind over the last few months . He has gone from a name chanted around the CG to someone who a lot on this site want replaced. He got us to a good point and then the side imploded. He looks and talks as a defeated man, which is my worry about him. He has to inspire this group of perfectly capable championship players to play for him, the proud club we are, and the fans . Sadly at this time we cannot be the 12th man. Bristol are the first ‘good’ side we will meet this season so far . If the players are not prepared to give everything for SL and fight - he will go . It will be a sad day for the club. You can then only hope there is a ‘Bielsa ‘ waiting in the wings. After MoN I don’t think an English manager will get a look in.

2.) 27 Sep 2020 10:55:44
Smithy giving him more time is a suicide note. The players are bot playing for him. The atmosphere is flat and dour we have no chance of raising our game under lamouchi. We desperately need a chsnge a lift that SL cannot supply.

3.) 27 Sep 2020 13:14:03
yes i agree but just think that after sticking with him and backing him with all the new signings maranakis might give him a bit longer. on the other hand the big man might sack him tomorrow. who knows what he's thinking but he can't be happy can he.

4.) 27 Sep 2020 13:33:49
It makes sense to give him till after Blackburn away. That will give him this week plus the Bristol City match then 2 weeks of the international break before we play Blackburn. If the club has let him splash the cash it makes sense to give him 3 weeks on the training ground to learn his best 11 and gell them in to a team and not sack him 3 or 4 days after the latest 2 players arrived.

5.) 27 Sep 2020 14:38:30
Trentender i understsnd te sentiment and common sense appoach, but don't you feel tgat the squad just will not respond to SL. They do not seem interested in his style and the plsyers need a chsnge and big lift.

6.) 27 Sep 2020 15:33:39
They certainly need a big lift from a boot up the jacksy.



26 Sep 2020 02:21:51
i really can't get my head around the fact that professional footballers can play for 360 mins that's 6 hours of football without scoring a single goal. sl must really be skating on thin ice now. how long with maranakis give him is the big question.


1.) 26 Sep 2020 07:23:37
face it scaramouche as lost the plot. he not a clue. he brings in players who are past it. there is one way to resolve it. give him is p45, and get rid of the tosh he as bought in. because that is what most of them are. but i do hope they lose the next few games, if it means the end of scaramouche. and get a manager who the players can understand. English.

2.) 26 Sep 2020 07:53:53
Blidred. when Lambrini gets the boot another foreign coach will arrive. I'm sure Marinakis has one on standby.
The big Greek and his buffoon aides have no clue how to run Forest.
Yes they have got in 11 players when realistically 4 or 5 were required.
The Fat Greek's side project will implode and he will lose interest and make Forest a none viable club.
Things have to change ASAP starting with the owner, DOF etc.
Forest are a laughing stock of a circus and I hate to say this but Fawaz was a better owner than the current regime!

3.) 26 Sep 2020 08:34:46
Losing is a bad habit. Any more and we become real relegation fodder. Why do people rave about Sow? He is a shocker, can't tackle can't play football. As predicted he is a red card waiting to happen with no regard for his team mates.



25 Sep 2020 21:41:52
the lack of goals really is a worry . what are they doing on the training ground.


1.) 25 Sep 2020 21:50:17
Theres no creative players in midfield that's why.
Told you freeman will struggle and look no better than carvalho.
The side has no pace and play at walking pace which is easy to defend.

2.) 25 Sep 2020 21:51:51
Not a lot!

3.) 25 Sep 2020 21:59:51
Practising defending as we have 20+ of them.

4.) 25 Sep 2020 22:04:30
Take a long hard look at the squad?
34 or more tell me who creates chances out of that squad?
Its one paced and unbalanced.
Lamouchi will be sacked there's no doubt about that but it won't change things .
Marinakis has to change his ways.
Hes the problem.

5.) 25 Sep 2020 22:05:02
Fff79 difference is freeman’s played 4 games carvallho’s played about 54,

6.) 25 Sep 2020 22:11:13
Monty they can't even get defending right!

we've supposedly already turned down 10 mill from another club so why would villa think we would accept their offer.

i wouldn't say grabban being on the bench is the problem because he don't look like he could score in a brothel at the moment that's why most of us on here were wanting him dropped. lolley hasn't been at his best for ages either and suffering with shin splints.

ourselves and the animal botherers are a laughing stock at the moment. an embarrassment to east midlands football. i thought the whole idea of the game was to put the ball between them big white posts and we can't even do that at the moment.
