So is there a clause in his contract allowing him to play in every game or do we have a 25% of games report to the medical centre to save on triggering bonus clauses?
Even so a great bit of business. Just need to move Mills and Hobbs on and sign a 6' 5" ball playing centre back!

We need someone over 6'3" at the back to stop us being bullied at set pieces so here are my top picks

Shane Duffy
Sean Morrison
Harlee Dean

Aden Flint.

They are all better than anyone we have to command the box.

So Mr Forever who would you pick?

Agree0 Disagree1

29 Apr 2017 15:58:42

Manager will decide who he signs and trust me it won't be any of them

Why do we need a centre half 6 ft 3 and over to stop us getting bullied?
Hummel's 6,1
Terry 6,1
Des walker 5,11
Tony Adams 6
Martin keown 6
Did these fellas get bullied answer no

It's all about how much desire you have not your size
Maybe we need a 7ft goalkeeper as well it's all about application if we have no desire to beat lower teams we won't it's as simple. as that.

Not when season after season we cannot defend our 6 yard box in the air?
I seem to remember Des Walker scoring a very crucial own goal at Wembley because of his lack of height but then he usually had a big guy playing next to him at his best!

Agree0 Disagree8

Are you real you telling me Steve chettle was big i don't think so after such a fantastic career you pull des walker up on a own goal your laughable.

Agree2 Disagree0

01 May 2017 20:14:28
The great Des walker remember by forest fans for a own goal i don't think so, always played at side a a big central defender Steve chettle 6,1 i don't think, people need to get there facts right, if that's how some of our fans perceive our players what chance have we got absolute joke πŸ˜€.

Matt mills 6ft 3
Jack Hobbs 6ft 3
Joe Worral 6ft 4

It's all about heart i rest my case redinexile.

Apparently 6ft 5 ball playing centre half is what's required to add to our best balanced squad in years. lol

Agree2 Disagree0

02 May 2017 12:31:13
If it's the best balanced squad no wonder where in trouble i suppose balance comes from a left back playing at central defense we need people who are prepared to run through brick walls for each other.

Agree fox shunt be anywhere near the squad been crapp since he came, suddenly some think he's good at centre back even though we've shipped over 70 goals, need to look a little closer at his performances.
I think it's the worst balanced squad we've had in years.
About a dozen midfield players who don't know how to tackle, put a through ball to a striker and not got a clue how to put the ball in the net, with the exception of clough and waste most dead ball situations
Massive clear out required but who will want them?

Agree1 Disagree0

02 May 2017 17:24:28
Forestforever79 can't agree more but certain people on here cannot see it apparently if you have a massive central defender you will defend better it's easy to comment with no common football knowledge if it was that simple.

Forest sale to markinas is a done deal all paperwork is with EFL so providing he passes the strict owners and directors test it will be over.
