Apparently we've tried to get Dennis in on loan with option to buy. As if Watford will do that. Why would they loan a forward that'll rip the championship up. Scoring in excess of 25 goals helping them to bounce back innprem.
Get him signed. Davis upgrade with goals.
£20m bargain.

Has there been interest in our fringe players.
Ie Taylor thought Birmingham where interested he did ok for them on loan
Lolly silva laryea cafu decosta Arter ect. We need these shifting.

True red x

{Ed002's Note - I can't help much but Richie Laryea (RB) may get a loan - Huddersfield are interested, and perhaps clubs from the continent - but after the arrival of Williams he might well be sold. Aris Thessaloniki have certainly raised the issue of Xande Silva who the previously had on loan.}

1.) 21 Jul 2022 16:27:32
Xande Silva is supposed to be joining Dijon.

I wouldn't mind keeping Taylor as our fifth striker if Cooper thinks it's right.

Iannou is going back to Como on a permanent deal.

Not heard anything on the rest but I'd be tempted to keep Laryea as back up unless he really wants to leave, which he may with the WC coming up.

2.) 22 Jul 2022 10:18:19
Silva would do well at Dijon, he’s mustard! ??.

3.) 23 Jul 2022 17:59:16
Apparently Cafu is staying. If he doesn't play a lot, he can be the mascot. Lovely guy and a better player than people seem to think.

4.) 25 Jul 2022 15:12:08
any news on the players that are no longer required.

5.) 25 Jul 2022 18:46:48
I doubt this is news, but wherever Artur goes, we will be paying most of his wages still.

Lolley is a bit injury prone and will also be on a decent salary, so won't be easy to shift unless we pay half his wages on a loan too.

Laryea will be easy to move, but won't be going anywhere until the gaffer knows we have enough cover at both wing back positions.

Cafu wants to stay. So unless we decide he is no use even as a squad player, then he will be here for the time being. His wages are not that high, so not a big deal, and he is apparently really popular around the club and good for the team spirit.

6.) 25 Jul 2022 21:59:56
Tbh I feel a little for Richie could be a decent player if given a chance but can't really see that happening with Nico in the side I'd keep his as back up.



19 Jul 2022 19:00:40
O'Brien and Toffolo signed according to ssn
No need to spend on Moreno now.
£70m spent so far.
Gibbs davis garner would be icing on cake.
Might have to spend over £100m though.

1.) 20 Jul 2022 08:45:05
Lingard next! ;)

2.) 20 Jul 2022 09:00:45
Lingard could be a good bit of business. On a free and even if we pay his demand of 180k per week that's just over 17 mil for 2 years.

3.) 21 Jul 2022 13:30:58
Spot on Wonky but I wonder how the rest of the squad feel about it moneywise?



18 Jul 2022 22:56:29
Apparently working on A deal to sign Moreno another wing back . We ok in defence.
Need midfielders and attackers.

27 Jun 2022 17:31:48
Apparently being quoted £20m by Liverpool for Williams. Taking the piss.

True red x

1.) 27 Jun 2022 19:46:43
What do you think spence is worth then?
Figures quoted are crazy but it’s the going rate.

2.) 27 Jun 2022 21:42:54
2tone. There’s a reason there parent clubs in prem loaned them because at the time they didn’t think they where good enough for there 1st team squad on match days. So it proves they haven’t done enough in prem games ect But suddenly they want ridiculous fees.
Still unproven at prem level. So a fare price would be £10m plus add ons. I hope we haggle the price down.
Spurs are standing there ground over spence. Only offered £10m.

3.) 27 Jun 2022 22:30:25
I would pay that for him I think he he better defensively and his tactical awareness is better than spence, don't get me wrong I am not calling spence as I thing he is a good player but towards the end of the season he was not having the same impact as he was figure out and I would worry about his defensive ability coming up against better players.

If he was that good spurs would of paid what Middlesbrough what they want by now.

4.) 27 Jun 2022 22:35:45
I’d offer £12m plus add ons for both spence and Williams. Spence takes risks but he will improve.

5.) 27 Jun 2022 23:39:55
It’s just supply and demand true red - fallen out with the manager, on the scrap heap, on the bench or learning your trade playing reserve football then all of a sudden a good 9 months and a club can say you’re worth 10 or 20 million. It’s crazy but every club is doing it. As fans we either have to forget the money or realise that the sums don’t add up and worry about the finances of the club. I’ve done both in the past but now realise trying to work out and understand finances in football is like eating three or four dry cream crackers- it just can’t be done. We have to trust the owners and people who are involved in the signings to make the right decisions. If it’s 10 or 20 million it makes no difference in the crazy world of football and us fans just have to go with it. This is just talking about the transfer fees - we could start on the wages next ??‍♂️.

6.) 28 Jun 2022 02:25:12
If the signing works out, then £20M will sound fine this time next year. If not, we will say they've had our pants down. That's football for you these days.

The other part of that is, how many players have an average first season at a new club? Plenty. But fans these days will be moaning if they have a few bad games.

7.) 28 Jun 2022 11:45:24
Let us not forget Liverpool already have 2 world class established wing backs in those positions, don't think it's a case of them thinking Williams isn't good enough for Prem or them.

I think he's a quality player and will greatly improve us, 15 mill would be more like it.

8.) 28 Jun 2022 12:24:31
When two clubs are after a player (Forest and Fulham), the selling club are likely to try and create an auction, you can't blame them. We would/ should be doing the same.

Forest and Fulham need to stand firm, offer no more than £15m and let Neco decide where he wants to go.

9.) 28 Jun 2022 12:30:13
Good point ginger ?.

10.) 28 Jun 2022 18:15:12
we are suppose to be bidding for man u full back who was at norwich last season and they have put £10,000,000 on him joke.

11.) 29 Jun 2022 21:12:13
JS Brandon Williams? If so then we need to steer we’ll clear of him.

Forget mgw £40m plus is better spent on
Dennis £20m
Benrahma £15m
Garner or Barkley £15m
Job done.

This leaves 5 squad places left.
Smith 3rd keeper

Another loan. Davis or winks
Think with this squad once settled we'd be comfortably 12/ 14 in league.

1.) 09 Aug 2022 16:08:03
Looks good on paper. Would prefer freuler to garner or Barkley and then happy days.

2.) 09 Aug 2022 16:20:47
Dennis, apparently got an attitude problem
Benrahma, not wanted by Brentford or West Ham. Not good enough for them 2 Mickey Mouse clubs, ain't good enough for ours.
Garner. mmm not sure. OK but nothing special.
Squad player for 5/ 7 million ?.

3.) 09 Aug 2022 17:00:22
Agree again true red, would just like to wish our Riley Harbottle and Mansfield Town all the best for tonight against the **** that is them sheep loving Dierby clownty. Up the stags.

Forgot to mention Will Swan good luck lad go and slaughter them sheep.

5.) 09 Aug 2022 17:22:06
No offense but Dennis wouldn't come here and Garner wants to stay put.
Davies is injury prone and can't get into the villa team.

6.) 09 Aug 2022 17:38:19
My concern is players we're 'linked with' are now turning us down or going elsewhere. At the start of the window we were recruiting nearly all of our 'targets' but now? Maranakis has opened the cheque book and I detect we're being used to 'inflate' prices. Cornet? West Ham can have him. West Brom v Watford showed me that Dennis is distracted, is he the solution to unlocking Awiniyi's potential? Maybe. MGW has been realistically priced out of the market and I think we should move on. The rest of linked players now stink of paper talk and click bait, I hope I'm wrong and we sign 3 or 4 more. ?.

7.) 09 Aug 2022 18:00:49
Wolves can keep MGW they don’t want to sell and MGW isn’t exactly kicking up a stink to join Forest otherwise if he had I think the deal would have been done by now, so stay there MGW can we all put this one to bed now, would rather us sign benrahma any day over MGW………. if garner is not going to be given a chance at Man U, surely he knows he’s better off back at Forest but that’s his and Ten hags decision to make either way I would respect his (garners) decision, hope he comes back to Forest though.
Things have gone a little quite regarding Dennis and Fruler same goes if Either are not interested then Forest should move on to other targets, as I can see the next 3 or 4 signings making a major impact on our season, so sooner we get players in the better and quicker they will settle, chayote looks like he’d be a class signing too as he has premiership experience in abundance carry’s the ball well and is built like a wrecking machine so he’ll do fine.

8.) 09 Aug 2022 18:38:20

11.) 09 Aug 2022 21:46:36
Ross barkley is unemployable with the wages he's on only a loan possible there
Dennis Watford want 30 million
Man utd will want over 30 million with the bids we've put in for Morgan gibbs and benrahama will be on big bucks so the fees aren't realistic true red.

12.) 09 Aug 2022 22:29:25
At least in the Xmas fund they,d know the money would,nt be wasted where as on Gibbs White it just might be ,better to be safe than sorry !

Keinan Davies, Josh Bowler and Zinc for me for only £20m.

4.) 05 Aug 2022 23:04:24
Zinc not good enough.

5.) 06 Aug 2022 06:50:59
Olimpiakos bought Zinc for £2m and what can you buy for £2m, he was involved in just about everything we did good last season would have been a good squad player for me, right now we don't have anyone with his energy and ability to run at people and would have been a good shout to replace the likes of Linguard and Johnson for the last 20 minutes just my opinion.

6.) 06 Aug 2022 09:58:49
Spot on Skegby - Zinckernagel a good footballer who is clever with his feet and doesn't pick up injuries. A model professional on and off the field who knows the other players. His involvement in the first play off final and the Fulham away game was critical and much of his touch and balance goes unnoticed ?.



04 Aug 2022 22:36:10
Sounds like mgw will be wrapped up over next few days. I'd like us to sign Dennis and we will be ready strong 11 with a strong bench that could be good enough to start. 5 subs on match days. Cooper is a great tactician.

True red x

1.) 05 Aug 2022 08:31:52
I was reading the same, they have the big man working on it now, it does sound promising this time.

He will be a great addition, just needs to lose the Robin Hood Errol Flynn tash:), Kammy's love child?

Just one more sleep fellow Trickies!

2.) 05 Aug 2022 15:22:55
It seems Wolves are letting him go at any cost, they’ve turned down £25m + extras.

Enough, move on.

3.) 05 Aug 2022 15:32:27
Forest need to move on from mgw, he’s not for sale. He’s not proven at this level for one and anything north of £15mil is wreckless. Che adams at £12mil and one of the other centre mids we are chasing should be enough for now. Let’s see how we fare in first few games.

4.) 05 Aug 2022 15:54:15
Bid of 35 million rejected by wolves.
Time to move on from him he's far too expensive for a kid unproven in the Premier.

5.) 05 Aug 2022 18:08:03
Agreed. unproven and a waste of ????.

6.) 05 Aug 2022 20:20:22
He's a quality player and a game changerso wouldn't be a waste of money.
By far the best player to face up against in the championship last season.
I'd love to see him at Forest but agree there has to be a limit on what we pay.

7.) 05 Aug 2022 20:59:13
At 35 million and unproven I'd say it's a complete waste of money.
Instead of dragging their heel's Forest should of concentrated on getting a quality Striker in before the game at Newcastle.
IMHO I can't see where Forest will get their goals from?

8.) 05 Aug 2022 21:50:24
Before Newcastle! Dane's good but not that good ?.



02 Aug 2022 16:35:52
Can't wait to see us upsetting all these so-called experts saying we going back down.

4.) 01 Aug 2022 23:58:27
Dreamteam……. with all due respect, Fawaz was only giving his opinion, which he’s entitled to do, on the fact that we need to sign a proven premier league striker, yes it would be great if we did in an ideal world, but maybe we will have to settle for a unknown the Egyptian lad sounds decent, but Emmanuel Dennis would be just the sort of striker we need imo to complete our strike force.

Any two of Cornet, Davies, MGW, Dennis.

7.) 02 Aug 2022 10:04:51
It looks to me as though we are looking mainly at players from abroad now especially Bundesliga, and to be honest we are running short of money to buy. Expect Murphy to get bargain deals on players we are not familiar with.

8.) 02 Aug 2022 12:59:03
Think it would be a mistake to try and get attacking players on the cheap. Goals will keep us up. We have spent a lot on defenders and may need to fork out to get likes of Dennis or Cornet. Xande Silva leaving without barely being picked is what happens when you try and pick up bargains and he was only the latest in a long line of barely played forwards.

Dennis scored 1 in 3 plus made assist’s for a poor Watford side that got relegated.
He would of scored plenty more for a mid table side.
We need to sign him asap. £20m bargain.

We need to get Davis back. He creates more than he scores but him and awoniyi even for last 30 minutes would cause havoc. Expecting deals this week now players returning from hols. Need to get moving or risk getting gazumped.

We’ve just got to be patient 12 new players over last 6 weeks have been signed and I’m sure there’s at least 2/ 3 more to come. After 4/ 5 more games we’ve gelled
We will be much more of a force. These next 2/ 3 signings need to be midfielder and forwards.

The sides got to settle and gel also we do need a midfielder who can see a pass. Garner hopefully because he’s kidding himself if he thinks he’s going to get in Man U side. Then we need a forward who can hold ball up aswel as score. because I don’t think awoniyi is the answer
Go and get Dennis from Watford . 20m bargain.
Mgw price is ridiculous. The 35m we offered was a very good offer for an unproven player. Wolves are stupid. And we need to stop going after wingbacks.
It’s going to be a tough season. Just be patient and get behind the team.
