Well with the worst attempts at goal ratio in our league it’s a must that we get creative players through the door in the January transfer window. A decent winger and a striker are a must, and please can we send Mir back? What the obsession is at our club with following Wolves and signing some of their players is ridiculous, just because they are a good side now doesn’t automatically mean we will be if we follow in their footsteps. Just hope the super agent hasn’t got any influence in January or we could be signing more like Carvalho Goncalves and Dias.

Red frog, it was probably worth a go, there was probably as much chance of it coming off than not. In thought at least one of them would come off but alas I think it’s unlikely now.

2star although hindsight is a wonderfull thing we should have gotten all three on loan then agreed to a higher fee for each one than was agreed in the end.

I don’t disagree, we tried something different and it didn’t come off - we just have to move on now - I still believe we will offload in Jan.

With the worst attempts at goal we aren't doing too badly are we?
The owners have at least tried different approaches to signing players that on the whole have been more miss than hit but now we have a better scouting structure and everything takes time to get it right.
I hope this window to just see two or three quality additions wether they are permanent or loans doesn't matter, just don't want wholesale signings and I believe the owners will be happy with our position in the league and will just add that quality.
Interesting you say we need a quality winger, we actually have two if not three in lolley, adhoma and cash if jenkinson was fit.
We need a goalscoring midfielder that can score from free kicks and deliver corners that hurt.

Agree2 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 18:43:42
I agree with a lot of what you said 79 but Jenkinson showed at Arsenal, and has carried that mantra he can not stay fit for long enough to show his ability. Adomah is very much hit and miss, and Lolley is almost nailed on to start when fit he has lost his edge.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 19:02:33
Interesting you say lolley has lost his edge?
So has carvalho, you don't become a bad player overnight, sometimes it's a loss of form, but I'm confiboth players will come through it.
Watson lost more than his edge last season but now looks a different player.
Worrall and matty and Yates proving the doubters that our academy players can be part of a successful team.
I think we should all just enjoy this season no matter what and see it as a real progression for once.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 19:03:17
One person I would have in January is walker back I think he's earnt his chance now remember this is our first season under lamouchi I think he needs 2 so bonus if we it top 6 this season but my thinking is it will be next season.

Agree2 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 19:09:30
I'm with you on that one skeggs.
Bad decision to allow him out on loan with no cover for grabban and then sign a waste of space at the last minute.

Agree1 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 19:30:14
79 you misunderstand me, with Lolley i think he knows he is going to start way more times than not so has become complacent because he knows no one is good enough to keep him out of the team for a long period of time. Carvalho's edge has always been blunted very quickly are it became a keen one. You are right about Worrall, Yates, and Watson, i am pleased with our season so far under Sabri but there are always going to be players that lose form but in certain positions we have not got players that can keep that place should they get their chance.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 20:06:00
Didnt misunderstand my friend on lolley, I can't and won't fault his commitment he's just out of form, he's not being complacent he just isn't reaching the level of form he showed last season, it happens look at a class player like dele Ali struggled for six months or more but now back to his best.
A teams conference is the biggest thing in football but even when a team is confident some players will lose form, but if you have the ability which lolley and cavs have they will come good.
A couple of good games and few goals and they'll be unstoppable.
You see when players are confident and
One thing I admire about Lamouchi is how is how he fills his players with confidence and isn't afraid to say he got it wrong at times, but he's got us at the right end of the table and a few additions will secure us promotion.

08 Dec 2019 15:31:53
Can someone explain to me as I'm a bit thick lol if we have bought carvahlo and we pay 13 million over 5 years where do we stand if we sell him in January do we get to keep the money from the sale and carry on paying instalments over 5 years or do we have to give the money to pay the player off just wandering.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - carry on paying instalments.}

08 Dec 2019 16:16:07
Thanks Ed 1.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate. They could choose to pay it off early with the money if they wanted, but as they are usually receiving payment in instalments, it very rarely happens.}

08 Dec 2019 18:23:37
Skeggs don't worry you'll get your 13 million back soon. lol😁😁😁.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 23:19:31
I would be happy with half back 79 you can see he has talent but just not in the championship or premiership some players fit he doesn't saying that abroad he might be great anyway onwards and upwards dreading assombongla coming back to haunt us this week will be a tough game.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 14:07:15
Oops I did it again 😂😂😂 . Ameobi cracking free signing but only 2 goals to his name, a bit unpredictable at times but creates goal scoring opportunities and goals. Lolley great player again but hasn't hit the same heights as last season in general play, goals and goal scoring opportunities for others. I think defence, midfield protectors and goalie are sound but the second half of the season we need more from midfield like Stone, Woan, Bohinen and BartWilliams used too. Also if we get another striker someone to sit behind Grabban in the number 10 role who do we sacrifice. Whatever happens I hope we turn the CG into a place to be feared and can find a way to topple teams who stick 10 men and the bus in defence, with 3 of our next 5 at home it's a good chance to pick up a lot of points. Lamouchi and his team at least for now have given us something to cheer this season let's just hope we keep hold of him .

Agree2 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 14:44:13
I think we will get players from abroad but would like us to sign Bowen if possible . 2 million would probably get Lansbury back who I think would work well in this team. Very capable of scoring 8-10 goals from midfield - an essential facet when you play one up top.

Agree7 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 15:08:03
Sabri as you say has got the goalkeeper, and defensive side of things sorted, he also has team full of spirit. We do lack someone to challenge Lolley and a couple of players able to open up well organised defences on a regular basis. I think the team sometimes loses patience against tough defences so resort to shooting from distance which is more often than not going to work. Sabri has got more right than wrong in his short time with us, should we be in the top six come Christmas i think the club will offer him a longer deal. Whoever joins the team in January needs to better than we already have, and i'm sure the club have been, and still are working hard in doing that, the hardest part is the task of getting rid of the likes of Hefele, and others that the club have and will replace. Leeds and WBA inspite of having the quality midfielders you mentioned both faded last season so with some good signings and a good run automatic promotion is possible, but like yourself i would be happy enough to finish the season having made a good fist of challenging for any form of promotion. The only problem is when your hopes turn into expectations, as more often than not you will be disappointed then turn bitter.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 17:56:47
Lansbury had the odd good game, but he cannot tackle and constantly got yellow/red cards. Yesterday's man. I trust Anigo to get us a few more gems from abroad.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 18:05:49
Stuff the tackling he scored goals and was very good at dead ball situations and carried us at times with his goals.

You must have been watching something else.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 18:40:22
I agree Lansbury was decent and also won a lot of free kicks remember Villa in his last season game on sky. Was also good at winding up players to win free kicks in and around dangerous areas. But didn't he angle for a move for a couple seasons and I also agree he was yesterday's player. I reckon there's better out there.

Agree1 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 18:55:17
They say never go back cloughie and I'm not advocating he comes back, just saying he was a good goalscoring midfielder and not a waste of space like some would have us believe.
To me all successful sides have to have goals like this?
Full backs 2 or three
Centre backs 5 ish
Wingers double figures between them
One central midfielder that's capable of double figures and a striker that can get 18 plus.
We have the striker, we have the defenders lolley will come good and be the winger we just lack the general in midfield that gives us that extra goal threat.
That's not having a go at any player but if those players we have can't score 8 at least then we need better.
Really pleased with how the season is going and Lamouchi has to take all the plaudits for that doing a remarkable job with just one striker.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 19:39:05
Far from a waste of space - averaged a goal every 4 games from midfield whilst at forest .

Thank you 2 star some have short memories.

08 Dec 2019 20:15:17
Bsered, Lansbury cost us 1.5 million, when you think of what we’ve spent on other players it’s hard to say he wasn’t a decent player .

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 20:20:41
We also sold him for 3 million with only six months left on his contract.
Good servant and made a profit.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 13:56:19
So far if we win our game in hand will be top of the play off teams sitting in third. Now that's decent and I'm still of the mindset that if we miss out on the playoffs just or get beat in the playoffs then it is a good platform to build on next season as long as we keep players and manager. Now of course there is no reason why with additions in January we can't do it this season. The thing is make no mistake the manager and players will know it's the owners demands that this season its promotion or nothing, if not top 2 then playoffs. As much as I would like to us build it slowly and if doesn't happen this year then go for it next year its obvious we need maybe 3 additions to our team to push for higher up the table. I'm sure Lamouchi will have an idea where he wants to add to so I've looked at it and where we can change . As has been pointed out Leeds and West Brom have some fantastic attacking midfielders and this is where we lack not enough scoring goals from those positions. So who's position in the team would he sacrificed, Silva very good player technically sound links up well but only 1 goal to his name. Ameobi crackingfreexsigning.

Agree1 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 15:58:09
We,ve got to go for it in January because if we stop in the Championship it will be just as hard next season ,,always will be !
CARLO
PS

Come on Murph

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 16:18:00
Carlo there is a fine line between going for it and it working, and going for it only to stay stuck in the Championship with even less to spend than we can now. The latter would result in some fans moaning we are missing out on players we should be able to afford that would improve us, and all because we threw too much at this season. We are not the Liverpool, Man City, or Chelsea of the Championship, i agree with what Clough is God said about promotion. Going flat out and messing the club if promotion is not for coming should not be a option.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 18:15:23
The owners will be expecting promotion from where we are make no mistake and will bolster the squad, they aren't spending 100 million on the stadium to stay in the championship.
Karambeu has stated that forest is a bigger project than olympiakos and this season we've turned a corner in being up there and competitive for a change.

Agree1 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 18:53:48
79 any business can say what their aim, but it is another putting so much cash in the pot they could be in major trouble. In the past the club have spent fairly big only to sell anyone that would fetch decent money. As you say if the hope was not to get to the Premier league the stadium would not be getting worked on but many clubs have thrown cash at the transfer windows and failed.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 19:30:17
From the day they sacked warbo the owners are on a mission to get to the premier it's the only place they can recoup their investment.
Forget the past we had bad owners in Doughty who was as tight as they come and let players leave for nothing then a lunatic who threw money at it like confetti but had no idea how to run a club.
The Greeks have a knowledge of how football works and have the finance to back it, if they have a fault then that might be that they are slightly impatient.
Still think this is the year for us but even if it isn't we'll be close.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 19:50:20
If you look at some of my posts i have said we could go up this season, like you said the Greeks seem to know how to run a football club, that is why i do not think the club will throw caution to the wind and go all out in January in desperation and risk the good work they have done.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 20:12:11
No they won't they will probably bring in loans with a view to buy, but remember they got 11 million in for appiah and Osborn plus offloaded some big wages so let's see.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 12:43:55
Just watching WBA 12 points clear now that's one place gone. What fantastic attacking midfielders they have got. I think that's where we need to strengthen to have any chance. We've got a decent midfielders but they just don't score enough.

Agree2 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 13:45:32
With where we have been, and where we are now the club has done well, yes we need to strengthen but you have remember WBA have had parachute payments, we will get there sooner rather than later.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 12:31:50
Our squad apart from upfront is strong
We definitely need at least 1 quality forward bringing in during transfer window.
But where else do my fellow fans think we should strengthen.
For me any of these would do upfront.
1 Gayle. But only on loan
2. Billy sharpe. Loan not playing much.
3. Wickem loan.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 13:12:29
If it is the Sharpe i'm thinking of he needs to be playing with a partner. Wickham has been injured a lot so Skegsjay has said, and Gayle would be good, but would either Grabban or Gayle be happy to be on the bench, or would Sabri change his set up and play them together.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 13:17:45
Strengthen by getting rid of the deadwood to free up money and help fund new players. Muric, Yacob, Clough, Bridcutt, Hefalump, NightMir, glass legs Jenkinson, Pantamillion, Benalouane, Bostock and Carvalho. Just imagine the wage bill for that lot, frightening.

08 Dec 2019 17:12:53

Hear hear red dog I'm with you on that one, I look at the likes of Preston, Charlton, Swansea all early pacesetters that are on bad losing runs, even when we have a bad result we bounce back, last night he changed things but it's another case of 3 games in 8 days again, oh the chaos the international breaks cause in the championship, he has two strikers to pick from and if he didn't know before he knows now he only has one.
We'll be there come the seasons end and a couple of quality additions in the window and we could go on a very good run.
Goalscoring midfielder and a striker is all that's missing.
