Knockaert understood to be close. Next 2-3 days and he’ll be a forest player for the season.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Oct 2020 18:01:26
If he joins other than yates our entire midfield will be left footers, lolley, freeman, Arter, colback, and ameobi who has 2😂😂😂.

09 Oct 2020 21:16:34

09 Oct 2020 22:04:54
Im beginning to think its actually three? 😉.

10 Oct 2020 09:28:59
I'm wondering if Houghton will try and get a decent forward in I doubt he'll be able to but if anywhere on the pitch needs strengthening then its upfront and as been for some time.

10 Oct 2020 10:31:49
From what i have seen so far Taylor does not look to have goals in him. That might change under hughton. Grabban will still be good for 15 i suspect. Arter and Freeman will probably bag 10 between them and lolley 6. Agreed another sharp shooter may be required.

10 Oct 2020 18:45:48
Hes certainly missed a couple of good chances.
Different approach from a different manager so we will have to wait and see what happens.

11 Oct 2020 15:18:21
If we get hold of someone like Gayle. I’d sell grabbon looks past his best. Misses sitters. Also looks unhappy.

11 Oct 2020 17:52:53
Ivan toney 3 in four matches for brentford. that's a striker.

11 Oct 2020 23:35:46
Getting habit wary of Grabben.

08 Oct 2020 10:39:53
Colin Calderwood will not be joining Forest, he has taken up a international academy role at Northampton.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Oct 2020 13:35:17
Yes, but I'm sure if Chris puts the call in, he would come. They have had a lot of success together.

08 Oct 2020 14:52:56
He must have known about what had gone on so would not have taken the job he has before making a call first.

07 Oct 2020 16:09:32
Sounds like Houghton is after Anthony Knockaert as his first signing. Let's hope so, tough player with goals in him.

Agree4 Disagree0

07 Oct 2020 18:56:28
Type of player we need, always causing opposition players problems, would be very good if we got him.

07 Oct 2020 21:08:14
Type of player?
Whats a type of player we need?
We needed a type of player like toney going for about 6 mill, young scoring, powerful and a sell on price.
Thats the type we need.

07 Oct 2020 21:48:09
Knockeart would be ideal and would add some creativity to that midfield.

07 Oct 2020 22:18:39
Is that likely? Fulham only just signed him permanently for £15m.

07 Oct 2020 22:00:41
So would a young hungry goalscoring midfielder or a young fast striker.

07 Oct 2020 22:30:39
Shows how . uch some fans dream above our station fred.
Having said that he ain't worth that sort of money.

07 Oct 2020 22:44:36
We'll probably sign some d*ck with the heart of rabbitt fred.
Whoopps we've done that many times.
Seriously fred hope chris just stops the maddness and brings us some stability.

08 Oct 2020 10:38:35
Rabbits have more go in them, that’s why there is so many of them.

08 Oct 2020 12:30:47
Knockaert has always been a good player. I’ve always thought he was Class, I remember him scoring against us once and simply just celebrated calmly didn’t go over the top and got on with the game. I also remember James McClean scoring against us and shushing us with his middle finger to his lips, no class.

09 Oct 2020 12:48:36
Is Dwight Gayle over his injury yet. If he is would be good loan.

07 Oct 2020 11:53:17
Real manager at last. This could be the big one we have all waited over twenty years for. Well done Marinakis, someone in who really knows what he is doing who I believe will deliver for our great club and its long suffering fans. U REDS.

Agree8 Disagree0

07 Oct 2020 17:20:45
Spot on mate can’t believe there are still doubters and moaners. We all need to get behind the team and the management. Yes the owner has made some mistakes but he is clearly trying to put things right. Sabri did ok to start off and gave us a little hope. Now we have a good squad a very good experienced manager and a great chance to have a great season.
Keep the faith. COYR.

07 Oct 2020 22:57:00
Some would call realistic.
Im with you 100% if the owner was so sure then give him a 3 year deal and the time to get it right?
You should back your own judgement when in control of a buisness not just hire and fire.

08 Oct 2020 10:39:07
People were moaning before he had even had his first day in charge, is that realistic?

Have you considered Chris may have only wanted to sign a 1 year contract?

It's always the owners fault on here.

The guy has ploughed shed loads of money in when no-one else would and people seem to get off on knocking him at every opportunity.

If he were to drop and go we would be in big trouble. Let us hope we have the right manager and we are headed in the right direction.

08 Oct 2020 19:12:31
Ayup the clingon is here again🤣🤣🤣.

07 Oct 2020 09:16:05
I'm sure I'm reading too much into it but I've noticed the club refer to Chris Hughton as manager but call Sabri head coach. Could it be something Hughton stipulated before he agreed to join and does a manager have more input into how things are done eg transfer dealings? Either way, welcome to the club Chris, and good luck.

{Ed002's Note - Not transfer dealings as such but it means that the responsibility of coaching will be shared and the manager will deal with tactics, the individuals, media, the board etc..}

It's official its Houghton.

Agree7 Disagree0

06 Oct 2020 18:57:32
Good appointment just hope he gets a chance.

06 Oct 2020 19:01:42
Better than we've had recently. Good luck Chris!

06 Oct 2020 19:02:52
Plays attacking football 4-3-3, knows the league and knows how to get a team promoted, what's not to like.
Eve 79 will be happy 🤔😂🤣.

06 Oct 2020 19:07:15
I’m extremely happy with this. I’d imagine we will go 3-4-3 or 4-3-3 under him. We might even go 4-4-2!

06 Oct 2020 19:18:58
Knows the league, and how to get teams promoted so that is good, but i think Brighton fans will argue that he gets teams to play attacking football.

He has got some decent players to work with, he need to make them mor confident and loosen the leash that has been wrapped tightly around them.

Good luck to him, and all of the players he chooses for the main squad.

06 Oct 2020 19:24:32
Plays attacking football? From what I have read he is almost a copy of lamouchi, not tactically aware of how to change games, sticks with the same predictable style, even had his own players begging him to be more attacking in games, but it all hearsay, as he does have a good record of getting promotion so let’s hope he can do it here. Good luck to Sabri shame it did not work out when so close, maybe one day we will find out what happened.

06 Oct 2020 19:29:05
Hope he’s backed a little in signing a stellar signing at least a winger in. Then squad complete. I’d get us up with this squad. So I’m sure Chris will.

06 Oct 2020 19:44:03
Brighton sacked him because of his preference for playing one upfront. Won't change style of play even if we did get two forwards who might gel.

06 Oct 2020 19:50:10
He played 4:5:1 counter attacking at Brighton albeit in the Premier League. Where have we seen that before lol

I hope he did play 4:3:3 in the Championship. I can't remember.

06 Oct 2020 19:50:20
FFS Monty, you've started it already.

He is a quality manager and has results in getting teams out of the league. Comes across as a real nice guy too.

Welcome Chris, good luck fella, hope you get us climbing the table.

06 Oct 2020 19:59:48
Im ok with that appointment red dog.
TWF not many sides play 442 anymore.
Even one up can be attacking if the midfielders run beyond and support the striker.

06 Oct 2020 20:09:14
6-3-1 formation. FTW!

06 Oct 2020 21:23:06
A stat worth sharing
Houghton managed 206 championship games, winning 108, drawing 60 and losing 38.
Average 1.86 points per game.
332 goals for and 190 against.
4 seasons in championship, finished 1st with Newcastle, 4th and 3rd with Birmingham and 2nd with Brighton.
Doesn't sound defensive to me and a little better than the drivel of late.
Onwards and upwards.

06 Oct 2020 22:14:36
Got a feeling he's going to need all the luck he can get as it won't be long before fans are picking negatives about him some are already.

06 Oct 2020 23:43:30
I hope you're right RedDog! Even if we don't win all the time initially, we have the players to play better more watchable footy than we've had forced on us.

It already feels like a cloud has lifted.

07 Oct 2020 06:44:37
Not pleased the circus continues change again in a few more months there will be somone else as manager musical managers our club is a utter joke, just goes to show sabri didn't pick the players that was signed if he had signed he wdould have been given more time to get the players to gel.
On the appointment of huton no charcter and nothing special just another yes man should have been nigel so will fit right in at forest the nightmere continues.
But ill suppourt who ever is manager as i'm loyal to the great club that is NOTTINGHAM FOREST FC.

07 Oct 2020 09:37:38
He got longer than most at Forest, going from defensive to ultra defensive, and ripping the team apart that he got to seventh.

He wanted the sack, why else would a players leader do those things.?

07 Oct 2020 10:05:39
If Hughton gets results then I'm not going to complain about how he does it. But to get results quickly is going to be very hard. McKenna injured and now Arter missing Ireland games with thigh injury. If they are out for any length of time its going to be a tough ask.

07 Oct 2020 10:15:23
Damson red a bit of contradictory post, you start off by saying our club is an utter joke, and finish saying you’ll always support the great club that is Nottingham forest.

07 Oct 2020 12:52:30
Our club is a joke at the moment we hire and fire managers at a rate of knots the owners make our club a joke but Brian Clough put the club on the map and made it great for that the club will always be great to me don't know about you stevie f its the owners and so called footballers that make us a laughing stock.

06 Oct 2020 18:21:17
It's official-he's gone.

Agree3 Disagree0

06 Oct 2020 12:07:48
The Mirror has said that the teams leader will be gone this week.

Could it be true?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Oct 2020 17:23:04
It’ll probably be wrong then,

06 Oct 2020 17:43:02
If the club intend to sack the defensive one they should get on with it.
