Just looking at the first team squad on official website. 31 players. Sabri wants a squad of about 23/ 24. Come January try to get rid of pants, muric, milosavic, benalouane, hefele, yacob, Mir, and Clough. Try and offload Carvalho to Olympiacos and that leaves 22. Sign a striker and a good gutsy box to box midfielder and we are sorted for a push to the big time. Forget the top 6 it's all about the top 2 for me.

A very tenuous friend of a friend (colleagues partners grand daughters grand father) is a Leicester scout and according to my colleague Leicester are looking at Worrall. I’d let him go for about £25m.

04 Oct 2019 07:43:47
If were serious about promotion I wouldn't let him go for any amount, surprised you would let him go.

04 Oct 2019 11:13:54
Yates is our box-to-box midfielder, don't need any more.

04 Oct 2019 12:27:40
Yep forgot about him bsered. Spot on mate👍.

05 Oct 2019 10:59:00
Semedo is your box to box man 👌🏼.

05 Oct 2019 12:13:10
Agree with most of the departures but wouldn’t let Carvalho go or Worrall. Probably keep Pants too as back up.

I think the area we need to strengthen is an extra striker. Not much else needed.

06 Oct 2019 07:11:10
I would let Carvalho go. If our owner could make a bumper deal to Olympiacos happen to raise some funds for a striker I'd be happy. Without a doubt Joao has talent in there somewhere, but for the money we paid for him, I expected him to be tearing up the Championship, but instead he just toddles around the pitch and loses the ball way too much.

08 Oct 2019 23:44:55
I'm sorry, I must have read that wrongly, suggestions of offloading Carvalho to Greece. What utter tosh! That man is one of the most talented players I've seen pull on the garibaldi in years. In his first full season in English football, he contributed to 12 goals, never mind all the other chances he created, the dribbles, the runs at oppositions defences, the nutmegs, the first time passes, the one-twos, the ability to make play tick and to make play move faster.

His speed of thought is something else, his ability to create and find room is delightful, and personally he's given me more moments of pure pleasure watching Forest than I can remember. He's not perfect, he's young, he will make mistakes and he will give the ball away. BUT, I'd rather he give the ball away 2 out of 5 times, if he's trying a forward pass, or an incisive pass, or something positive the other 3 out of 5 times. He's coming back to fitness this year after a pretty bad injury and has already created opportunities all over the place.

I really don't know what more you want from a 22 year old. He's a player that could be in the Forest team for a long time hopefully. Just ruddy get behind the players we have that are giving 100% every game, because its working at the moment. I don't want 11 Carvalhos, but I also wouldn't want 11 Watsons or Sows.

01 Oct 2019 22:17:59
The big question is “how long can we keep getting away with it? ”
We were poor at times against Rovers, Worrall and Samba were however great and Watson had a decent game again.

You make me laugh red frog we are one point from the top of the league and your still not happy and they call me victor?
Get a grip it's a new side a new manager and still your not happy?

01 Oct 2019 23:44:17
Samba was great barring the goal as he was lazy thinking the block from defenders had worked should have saved it but redeemed himself later.

02 Oct 2019 06:48:39
I would say last year we would of played crap and lost because our heads lowered when the opposistion scored but now we have a fighting mentallity and keep going till the end. For me this is a 100% improvement from last season and to be fair if we can go away to place like Blackburn and get a point then its a good nights work. COYRs.

02 Oct 2019 10:17:52
The Rovers fans were thankful for a point as they recognised what a strong well organised team Forest were so your comment is off the mark Redfrog!

Our only fault was letting the game open up after equalizing instead of pressing them higher up the pitch which put us under pressure late on but we never really looked like losing.

02 Oct 2019 15:11:36
I couldn't quite believe the angle Armstrong finished from. Great finish from Lolley, thought he should have scored in the first minute but would have taken a point before kick off.

We conceded so many corners last night and previous years we would have conceded at least one of those, we are so much more resilient. Tough game on Sat ahead but here isn't many easy ones.

02 Oct 2019 20:55:42
Well summed up Ginger!

02 Oct 2019 22:03:53
I thought it a very entertaining championship game on a filthy rainy day, it had passion and every player from both sides gave everything, its not premier league football but it was good honest hard working teams who gave their all.
We'd have lost that last season with a thrashing that's how far Lamouchi has taken us in a short time.

01 Oct 2019 21:50:47
Good point at a ground that is usually a graveyard for us.
Game was there for the taking though against a bang average Blackburn side.
Hard to know what our style of play is after that display. If it's counter attack then the touch and passing simply isn't good enough.
Maybe try passing the ball to each other to see a game out rather than just hoofing it and soaking up pressure. We're getting away with it at the moment but won't keep doing Plus my finger nails won't last for much longer unless we can see games out with a bit more comfort.

Sorry fred totally disagree nine games without defeat and your saying its because "were getting away with it? "
Poppy cock we are a hard working team that never knows when to stop running.
Not sure what you want from them? 🤔.

01 Oct 2019 22:39:26
I don't think Fred is diaputing the effort or work rate, that's there for all to see. I think we just need to show a bit more composure when we win the ball back. That way you make the opposition chase the ball and give the defence a breather. Having said that we have to be happy with another point on the road and if we follow that up with a win in the next home game it's been another good week for the Reds.

01 Oct 2019 23:11:11
Your living in dreamland saying we'll be in the top 2 by the end of October and 15 points from next 3 games, well that ones already let you down.
Listen I'm overjoyed where we are in the league and the fact we ain't a soft touch anymore. But if you think we're playing well in games then you need to go to Specsavers.
The championship this season looks like it won't be dominated by one or two teams and we stand a decent chance of a top six finish but we can't keep hanging on for dear life at the end of games because it will eventually go wrong and we'll concede late on and some of the confidence will go.
I'm sure Its not Lamouchi's remit to see games out like we are doing and he's working on our ball retention to ease the late pressure but after some of the passing tonight he's got his work cut out.

02 Oct 2019 07:51:23
Lamouchi will realise he made a mistake in bring on Silva as that invited Blackburn to come at us with sow on we looked far more composed.
Ok we won't get the fifteen points but we will still be top two by end of October not seen anything yet that is better and stronger than us.
Been saying from the second game we are not going to control games we are a counter attacking side built on a good solid defence.
Wont be pretty at times but its effective.

02 Oct 2019 12:25:41
Just to point out that the bench were going crackers at the back four for dropping off after the substitutions so Joe needs to learn from this and take control rather than criticise the substitutions?

28 Sep 2019 21:33:39
Long way to go but things are looking good for players that are too old, out of contract or journey men. The team spirit is there that’s the difference.

Keep the Faith.

We are top of the league said we are top of the league. Stoke might feel like they deserved something tonight but I've seen that happen to the reds plenty of times where we deserved something but with a combination of bad luck and previous poor performances kept us in a lowly position.

It is also when top teams have done that in the past so the signs looking good so far. Ameobi immense what a signing he has turned out to be and there will be plenty of hat eating going on so far this season.

Nice to see us get the rub of the green and hopefully lolley goal will inspire him to some good performances. After being battered for half an hour what a great to win a game, right mentality, right team spirit wouldn't have happened seasons passed. Well done boys top one nice one sorted U reds Yes, TOP OF THE LEAGUE.

Here's the pre- match post match summary.

Well done lads. Comprehensive team victory today and a major statement of intent.

Onward and Upward


PS At least you showed the other Trent Bridge team how not to bottle it!

Agree2 Disagree0

21 Sep 2019 18:15:08
Are you sure you meant comprehensive not hanging on lol.

21 Sep 2019 22:09:48
It's only called hanging on if shots were really trouble to our keeper, he dealt with things comfortably and Barnsley couldn't score as they lack the real quality to beat the likes of samba dawson and the star man worrall.
Too many of you worry how things were in the past, we are different under Lamouchi and one thing that stands out the most is that we are far fitter than under previous managers.
We press high up the pitch and have pace to attack, something that's been missing for many a year.

21 Sep 2019 23:04:42
The team came through and by all accounts we never looked like conceding given we are comfortable sitting back and defending these days?

22 Sep 2019 11:54:36
Fm79 you are right Samba coped with Barnsley having some good shots on goal but I think hanging on is when the other team are in your final third for a long period of time and your keeper is having to make some good saves. We do have a goalkeeper and defence that are the most solid we have had for a good amount of time which is great to see, but hang on we did.

22 Sep 2019 18:38:45
The result was never in doubt once we scored, you sound like a lot who sit around me worrying if we aren't three nil up.
It was a comfortable win in what will be a demanding week.

22 Sep 2019 20:20:46
Unlike some I do not expect to wipe the floor with the struggling teams. I just said as I saw it. We are more resilient, and have five or six players capable of scoring, long may it last.

22 Sep 2019 22:10:37
So if we are more resilient why worry?
I wasnt in the slightest and at the moment we are more an away sort of side that soaks it up and hits on the break, but when you are confident in not conceding then there is nothing to worry about?
Like you say we have quite a few capable of scoring and last week at Swansea could have had four this week a couple, but in both games we never looked liked conceding so all is well.

23 Sep 2019 19:11:24
Ff. I don't know if i sit near you or not pal but we were definately hanging on towards the end. Cash and Grabban almost made a right dogs bolix of it down our defensive right. Ok they were both playing out of position but hanging on. Definately.

23 Sep 2019 21:44:04
No gazza you were hanging on as I was never one bit worried, cash was injured and grabs filled in, but even if you get past dawson and worrall you have to beat samba and he's a class act.
So stop worrying when we are under the cosh because we will be most games home or away as we are a counter attacking side not one that will control the game.

14 Sep 2019 21:20:09
Well done team, regulation away win playing incisive counter attacking football from a very solid base.

At long last we have some pace and creativity to move the ball quickly in the final third and get in shots on target.

Mr Laumouchi looks like he knows how to get the best out of GrabOne?

Our strongest team is now the team our coach picks for the game not who might be best on paper.

We are going to be the team to beat to get promotion this season!


Agree6 Disagree0

15 Sep 2019 14:12:49
Great game great result just imagine how many goals grab one would get if he managed to stay on side lol coyr lamouchi seems to be getting the team how he wants it just need to string some wins together.

16 Sep 2019 22:04:28
Think you and me red need to eat some humble pie for calling the dof as his signings that we've seen are working out well?

16 Sep 2019 23:33:14
Always happy to be proven wrong when criticising my team and personnel. I'd be keen to know just how many in addition to the French based players were Lamouchi picks rather than Dourekas given his previous recruitment?

Just happy that we are all singing off the same hymn sheet and the harmony remains throughout the season no matter where we sit in the league so long as we moving forward with the same commitment and evolving style?

Really looking forward to Bostock slotting into the side as he with Carvalho will unpick most teams in this league?


07 Sep 2019 20:57:22
Just thinking Tuesday could be judgement day for Mr Muric?

Loan deal set up when we were in between keepers and Man City would have insisted on first team appearances which Lamouchi has honoured before taking him out the firing line for his own man.

If England run riot and the lad buckles I expect our coach to return him to sender? 🤔🤓


Agree3 Disagree0

07 Sep 2019 21:27:14
The judge has already delivered his verdict on muric as he has dropped him.
He'll get beat Tuesday and has nothing to do with things, he's not good enough and all city want is a keeper that can play with their feet as they don't have to worry about the opposition putting them under pressure.

10 Sep 2019 22:31:48
Tonight confirmed we should not be training Man City's reserve keeper in our first team. Pep may think he is good with his feet but in the Championship you need to stop goals with your hands first. His positioning is poor and his chasing of team mate Sterling for his shirt shows just how immature he is!

Thank you but give me Pants everyday as our number 2 for this season.


10 Sep 2019 23:02:18
Well red he got beat five times and was all over the place always going to happen as the lad simply isn't good enough to play behind anything other than man city's defence when he has little to do, not that he will ever be their number one.
