Press conference called at the city ground for 10.30 tonight, no subject matter is given.


1.) 17 Jan 2019 21:15:21
Yep chugsey lots to come apparently but all embargoed to the press till then.

2.) 17 Jan 2019 21:41:17
I'm normally in bed at eight!

3.) 18 Jan 2019 12:07:58
Not happy chugsy! I had to stay up late pal! I daren't even have a power nap in case I miss something.



23 Sep 2018 22:48:06
I think Carvalio is making some great diagonal runs in behind opponents fullbacks that our midfield still isn't picking up.
Can someone tell them.


1.) 24 Sep 2018 08:02:27
I’m sure those diagnal runs will be discussed, probably in quite stern terms. There was a bit of talking about it Saturday actually.

2.) 24 Sep 2018 12:16:04
Exactly the point I was trying to make a couple of weeks ago I don’t think that the midfield as it stands today are good enough to bring the best out of the players we have
Still think there’s some more work to be done in the midfield

3.) 24 Sep 2018 14:52:40
We certainly are not lacking midfield options.It's just a case of striking the right balance. I think that we are quite close to achieving that.

4.) 25 Sep 2018 01:40:59
hes supposed to be a 13m creative midfielder himself, so if players don't spot his diagonal runs surely he should get on the ball and make things happen, that's what playmakers do, let grabban make the runs?

5.) 25 Sep 2018 05:34:26
Carvalho’s movement is absolutely brilliant, he’s always looking for gaps and space. Doing this pushes teams back and keeps their defenders constantly on their toes which leads to more time and space for the midfield. Creativity isn’t just what you can do with the ball, it’s also what you can do without it.

6.) 25 Sep 2018 13:03:59
Yep think some are missing the point of a playmaker he’s supposed to be picking out the runs not making them ,

7.) 25 Sep 2018 16:36:25
Is it etched in stone what he should or should not be doing? I think not! Communication is the key. That,I think,will improve.

8.) 25 Sep 2018 17:04:36
Hi has anyone heard if that Iranian strikers paperwork as come through yet

9.) 25 Sep 2018 17:54:42
Think people are clutching at straws if all we can praise a 13mill championship player for is the odd good run he makes OFF the ball

10.) 26 Sep 2018 01:59:40
if carvalhos runs have been so good why have other players not found him or tried too? and if the other midfielders don't see them surely he needs to tell them? iv seen him once live so far against sheff wed and I thought he was awful in the 1st half just jogging around an seemed disinterested an when someone did pick him out he blazed over from 10 yards out, but in the 2nd half he was much better cus he started looking and asking for the ball so for me its down to him if he wants to play like the 2nd half of sheff wed or not like the 1st?

11.) 26 Sep 2018 08:41:31
Carvalhos shown enough to suggest he'll be a top player when the team becomes more familiar with each other.

When the players around him can anticipate those clever runs into pockets of space & find him consistently, he'll have a bigger influence offensively.

He wants to play one touch football, that will only come good when it becomes second nature to those around him.

12.) 26 Sep 2018 12:43:17
Cjay been to almost all the games and you were obviously watching something different to me

13.) 26 Sep 2018 15:00:15
Folk tend to see what they want to see.

14.) 26 Sep 2018 18:39:12
Rose tinted glasses anyone?

15.) 27 Sep 2018 00:09:57
Cjay i’ m a forest fan and want to see him do well what’s your excuse lol



03 Jul 2018 11:46:31
The more I look at the squad set up, and the info that we are aiming for 6 centre backs including the new guy from QPR then I have to conclude we will be playing 3 at the back with wing backs next season. Just need one more on the left to aid Osbourne and Darikwa and Cash wing backs on the right.


1.) 03 Jul 2018 13:00:15
I think it is likely and Robinson can play Left Wingback so wouldn’t need another really.

2.) 04 Jul 2018 22:00:48
I think we will go 4231 and possibly switch to a 352 if we struggle to get a grip of the game or depending on opposition formation



08 Feb 2018 21:31:02
Programme sales will be up on Saturday because if your like me you will need one to identify all the players!


1.) 08 Feb 2018 21:44:16
Save your money Chugsy and use the sky sports app 👍

2.) 08 Feb 2018 21:49:23
Have you not heard, we have taken pity on the women that paraded the Darts players to the hockey, they will be parading all our new players with a board stating their names before each game starts for the rest of the season. You can sponsor the girls aswell as the players now. 😁 😁 😁 😁 😁 😁 😁.

3.) 09 Feb 2018 10:46:18
I'm already on the next flight!!! ✈️✈️✈️

4.) 09 Feb 2018 19:41:09
if Hein**kin created the ideal football fans scenario then that would be it

5.) 10 Feb 2018 09:56:27
It's official Forest now have more talent on their books than Hooters!

What can possibly go wrong?



31 Jan 2018 23:58:59
Both Watson and Guadeora have had contracts ended so both can sign tomorrow.


1.) 01 Feb 2018 00:18:54
Geddy already signed.

Why are we spending money on defenders when we need some quality up top.
Does Lamouchie think he is going to defend his way out of this division?
O dear.


1.) 06 Aug 2019 12:44:50
Linked with a french striker.

2.) 06 Aug 2019 12:50:51
Will the French be fried

3.) 06 Aug 2019 13:15:53
What's his name? Indie netto?

4.) 06 Aug 2019 13:37:32
No 79 he is called (Off the Mark guillotine).



27 May 2019 17:39:30
McGinn and Marriot, both players could have been reds but we quibbled over approx. 500k on both the deals and lost them both.
Next tome Forest, when your scouts come up with names please be a little more forward thinking.


1.) 27 May 2019 18:11:57
Very true chugs, not sure if you saw the AV game at the CG but McGinn was shear class . A class above !

2.) 27 May 2019 18:40:47
Yes I was there and he was the star of the show today against Direby



08 Apr 2019 11:52:06
Why don't we play Matty Cash in the attacking midfield role, where he played before MW moved him out wide in his search for a wing back.


1.) 08 Apr 2019 19:05:39
Because O'Neill doesn't really play with an attacking midfielder. He seems to either go with 3 central midfielders or 2 up top.

2.) 09 Apr 2019 02:49:26
Think we get it psycho you don't like Oneil and you think the squad is better than it really is and another manager will sort it?
No he won't,there's about ten players out on loan that are better than some of the s""t karanka signed.
How can you pick an attacking side from that squad?
Come on let's see your side?
Good luck and he didn't bring them in remember.



17 Mar 2019 12:13:46
IMO Jack Colback has been the most consistent player for Forest this season as our DM, however the last couple of games he has been played on the left of the middle three and he has been exposed for pace twice giving two goals away, against Villa and Ipswich. He has to be played in the centre for me guarding or centre backs.


1.) 17 Mar 2019 13:04:30
I thought he was ok yesterday but at times in the 2nd half he looked like he didn't want to be there. don't think he will be with us next season.

2.) 17 Mar 2019 15:25:19
I think we might lose Grabban and Lolley too.😐

3.) 17 Mar 2019 18:28:32
Fair point. I sat very near the touchline and could see Lolley was becoming increasingly frustrated, particularly second half.
Another observation about common sense/intelligence: Early in the game Big Ben and some others persisted in kicking the ball high and hopeful upfield. With the swirling wind this was aimless. Surely the odd ball on the ground would have been better that 30ft in the air.



10 Mar 2019 12:20:46
It would appear that Derby are in negotiations with the local council to extend the ground which must be fantastic news to the Derby faithful because of even more FREE tickets being allocated to the sheep collective!


1.) 10 Mar 2019 13:20:05
Derby are a pathetic bunch of attention seeking tosser s no doubt they’ll extend it to 40000 so it’s slightly bigger than ours , they’re like jealous kids

2.) 10 Mar 2019 13:53:01
Ah so here we have the reason why 10000 sheep have been stolen from around the country . No doubt Mel and frank have done some miles in the cattle truck in the dead of night

3.) 10 Mar 2019 23:33:46
They have to pay money to finish the existing stadium first before they dream of extending it!
I think they are applying fonly to take seats out and replace them with sheep pens? 🤡🤡🤡

Every player from that part of the world, whether Olympiakos or Benfica a supposed to be world beaters but never are. They have the image built up to get rid, if they were world beaters they wouldn’t be letting them go.

Hasn't Benalouane just signed a one year contract extension.

We have a very good young right back coming through but maybe isn't quiet ready yet. Someone on a one year contract with championship winning mentality would be ideal

For most of the time Ben's nearest link to other players is the 4 or 5 opposition defenders, with no sign of support from his own midfield. He has battled well for someone so young

Totally agree with your assessment and would also like to add that the number of hoof balls from defence doesn’t suit us. Grabban can’t head won’t head and Taylor is always a yard behind the high ball so we HAVE to play on the grass.

Like the idea of Lolley in the ‘ten’ role and play freeman wide.

This is not the first striker we have loaned to Lincoln and as soon as the goals start going in we have recalled that player.
That last player I seem to remember was a young chap called
Tony Woodcock.
