The club had no say over Rebeiro leaving.

" (My contract) will end in a month and a half and I will not continue, I think. I need other challenges, " he told in an interview translated from Portuguese outlet TVI24.

If his contract is up, you can't stop him choosing who he works for. that would be slavery.

Sending Ionnou out on loan BEFORE WE HAD A REPLACEMENT was stupid. I don't believe it was just the owner's choice. I think that Ionnou and Hughton fell out after Ionnou was sent off last season. He was loaned out just after that and never given a chance to redeem himself. Hughton never changed his mind even if that left us without any cover at left back.

Good management? Not for me. If we get a decent replacement, then the club have saved his skin.

If I was a betting man I’d say Johnson will be sold . Every footballer is for sale at the right money is offered. Johnson is definitely for sale - sad but true.

Think you are right 2Star, looking more likely he will be sold. Would be great if we could hang onto him but money talks and we have a habit of selling a player for a big fee every year. Joe could be sold as well.

Worrall a done deal before Alfreton game.

No new signings until one or both are sold unless loans.

Is this a sign that nothings changed at Forest Grabban still firing blanks and still being made team captain!

Worrall should be captain end of Forest through and through and a natural leader

Johnson Mighten and Lolley should be the 3 with Taylor upfront for the game at Coventry with Yates and Cafu or Colback in front of Gabriel Worrall McKenna and Richardson and Smith or Horvtch in goal

I say this as I have given up on 3-4-4 or 3-5-2 as Hughton will never change! 😡😡.

What if Worrall has been selected as the player to be sold.

You are quite right CH is likely to go with the familiar . Grabban is either not liked by other players so they don’t pass to him or something we don’t know about! It is probably coincidence we didn’t get a result without Carvalhio. So Johnson, Lolley Mighten and Carvalhio as a diamond with Johnson at its head Yates Colback in front front of the back 4 . Yes I agree a change in goal keeper - Smith deserves a chance I feel as well. The whole purpose of pre season is to experiment but yes as the first championship match approaches tinker less so.

Colback should be playing left back he's played there before and surely he would be the best option right now, I would like to see more of Fornah in CM looked class when playing in the friendly matches.

Doc, are you honestly suggesting we didn’t win yesterday because carvalho didn’t start?

Very good point on colback skegby mate 👍.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Jul 2021 17:15:47
I am not saying Carvalhio’s absence was the reason, but the man is in the last chance saloon . If he can’t make a first choice pick he is a has been yet is only 24. He has obvious technical skills that need to be harnessed for us . Like the whole of Forest team would benefit from a psychologist . On the off chance maybe do a trade with Rooney for Buchanan and a few others would clinch the deal.

We don't set up to win.
Don't matter who plays the two strikers aren't getting service and past their best.

So Wilson signs for Fulham for 12m! When most clubs are struggling financially and even sign free transfer players (particularly Direby! ) .

This is what is so wrong about the parachute payments vs FFP. The league is becoming more unbalanced every year and only the sides that get relegated from the prior season and the season before that are really able to compete at the top.

Financial reform is a must for the Championship. Those parachute payments need to be shared across all clubs competing in the league each year and not to just the ones that drop. Totally unfair and this is what will eventually kill the competitive nature of the EFL.

The top two this year will be out of Fulham, Sheff Utd, West Brom, or Bournemouth. Becoming as predictable as the PL.

Hope our Chairman can help sort this out from within the EFL now.

Southwandy: Grabban is totally garbage. Read the match report and yet again he was content with playing midfield rather than striker. mentions that he spent most of the game linking the play. well sorry, shouldn't he be the one at the END of the link? CH is bonkers if he thinks that same players who nearly got us relegated last term, are going to do anything different this term.

Agree2 0Disagree

25 Jul 2021 12:42:42
If Grabban is reverting to his useless performances of last season I would get rid NOW bring one of the younger strikers in from the Academy before it's too late,or offer Hibs a couple of mill for Nisbet we can't afford Divas prancing around and getting paid for doing nothing also CH sort out a captain who can rally the lads,but I might be wrong and Grabbon finds his form☹️

Agree1 0Disagree

25 Jul 2021 13:07:34
What I should have said does CH have the guts to drop Grabban☹️

Last season Hughton indicated he might use Grabban some of the time as a link player between midfield and the front players.

If Hughton thinks Grabban would be better off in that position with a younger striker able to get up the pitch faster and combine with the other front players we have to wait and see if he is right.

No matter the quality of a striker not much service means not many goals give it a chance.

I think if things stay the same, Q P R will finish well above us. Fulham will go back up and there's at least eight better teams than us. Should have stuck with Warburton.

wba will win the league, no doubt on that. because that's what they do every couple of seasons, its to do with the cash they get for going up, what is it know 100mil. work it out, its 50mil a season give or take. they wouldn't get that sitting in the bottom half of the prem.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - that's simply not true. The figures talked about for going up include money for being in the Prem and parachute payments. You get much more by staying in the Prem.}

ED/ simple its all dirty money, men should be paid on what they work for. These men haven't . thus bringing them to the championship. Why should every club stuck there watch them wallow in gains of security. On a personal view all i want is to watch exciting football. To which brought me to this great club. I hate to say this being negative but its going to be a while before i see this again. But once you've had a first high of forest your always going to be looking for your next fix. Anyway will always luv this club 👍.

thanks bowiered, my point was sides like wba and norwich seem to visit the championship on a regular basis, then take a large wedge back with them. take the play off final, the media call it the richest final in football. but then what do i know ed calls me an ignorant bigot. sticks and stones.

So back to basics the team that CH put out was his A team, Samba back in goal after Jordan Smith pulled of some great saves in the previous matches, Samba was slow to react for both goals and both goals coming down our left hand side where Bong is defending and the guy for the first just strolled by Colback and another game where Grabban hasn't scored or had a shot on target, CH has had all summer to develop a side but the players I've mentioned will form the nucleus of the team for the coming season which looks like its going to be a long one.

The American goalkeeper has had his visa sorted out, Hughton will get 3,maybe 4 new players all of which will spend most of the season as first choice players.

Mighten and Johnson are looking good, they are only friendlies, 2 more to go, fitness comes first, without the new players it is hard to know anything.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 Jul 2021 11:08:26
I think the three or four players that will hopefully be coming in will be a LB a CM and a striker the fourth is open to debate.
Buchanan, Fleming, Nesbit or kulenovic would be good signings IMO and keep what we have accept the ones houghton has told are free to leave.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Jul 2021 11:11:12
Bong was very poor, with regard to the goals scored by Crewe. He does not close down enough, and he is slow. Brice should have done better with the second goal. It was a crossshot and his positioning was poor. I have said all along that Brice is not good enough. Hopefully the new keeper will come up to scratch.

Agree3 0Disagree

25 Jul 2021 11:36:04
Be nice to hear what the new CEO thinks of two more than adequate LB,s being allowed to leave us with nothing in that position?
A few honest thoughts would go down great with us fans!

Hughton has no control over when players are signed, he will have asked for players to be signed but that’s the end of it for him. It’s completely unreasonable to blame him for no players coming in as yet. In modern football the manager does not sign players or have any control over the speed of the process . Whatever you think of hughton as a manager is one thing but stop judging him for things that aren’t his job, if you were a joiner would you accept getting a rollicking because the plumbing leaks?

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Jul 2021 13:14:55
It is not the CEO that needs to be asked that question it is the owner, he has to agree to important decisions.

I like his opinion or is he just another lacking?

Good for you that it is his opinion you want, his opinion though means nothing, if he is honest he will upset his new employer, if he takes the company line you will be unhappy.

The loannu decision was made long before the new CEO arrived, even though Hughton will have some say ultimately the owner has the final say.

Damsonred I've only seen Buchanan a couple of times, the last time I saw him he was taken to school all night, absolutely embarrassed by Anthony knockeart, and people on here keep telling me he’s crap, so not exactly a good recommendation,
