I hope he is as handy as Maradona, perhaps he might lift the Roofe off.

07 Aug 2019 20:00:04
Apparently is is from Honduras.

07 Aug 2019 18:39:09
John Bostock reportedly on his way to Forest.

Crazy crazy and another midfielder but no Striker. The way we're going I wonder who'll wear the number 100 shirt lol as I can't really see many going and why would they when on a decent screw, which I was on that sort of dosh. Oh well back to the same rubbish different day routine being a forest fan.

Sky have reported Forest are still wanting Mckenna valued at around £7m by Aberdeen. Sl does not rate many of the vast amount of Forest players that were at the club before he was by the looks of it.

If Sl is looking to get the team to play more quick passing, with over lapping play then why was the team back passing as a matter of course, and lofting it most of the rest of the time against Wba.

Chema Rodríguez done and dusted according to the guys at COYR Forest Forum. Center back signed a 3 year contract at Forest from Levante in Spain.

Feels like a complete waste of time to me. So now we have Dawson, Robinson, Benalouane, Worral, Milosevich and Rodriguez as centre backs. What for?

07 Aug 2019 15:39:42
Just 2 more very important pieces to the puzzle.
1) get rid of at least 6 players in the next 24 hours or so.
2) sign a quality striker.

07 Aug 2019 16:00:40
At least one of centre backs to go. Benalouane maybe. Robinson left back and then back up to Rodriguez, supposed to be left footed. Striker in, let's hope not Mendy!

07 Aug 2019 16:25:40
Hasn't Benalouane just signed a one year contract extension.

07 Aug 2019 17:13:28
We are still interested in the Aberdeen player. It’s crazy.

07 Aug 2019 17:31:42
The money for MCKenna should be spent on a Striker. Ridiculous. 🤔.

07 Aug 2019 17:32:56
We should be interested in every quality player burn cross - then you look to see if the squad and finance accommodates the player, if not you see if any deals can be sorted out and then either make a move or sit tight. I think we should Question the club for many things but not everything for the sake of moaning!

07 Aug 2019 17:46:28
Hefele and Figuarado makes 8 centre backs.

07 Aug 2019 18:22:42
Why is burncross moaning?
He's right!
Forest are buying for the sake of buying along with giving out possible lengthy contracts?
Surplus amount of midfielders and goalkeepers. the transfer policy at forest is beyond a joke. so we're not moaning just stating facts!

07 Aug 2019 18:59:24
Lamouchi collects Centre backs like Karanka collected centre mids. Maybe the next manager will have a fondness for strikers!

07 Aug 2019 19:43:08
Defenders, midfielders and keepers. Wait hang on. Erm do we needs strikers? . Of course not we can utilise the new keepers to pull straws to see who players up front.
I think we are the Fawlty Towers of football. 😂😂.

07 Aug 2019 21:26:03
Fawaz and burncross - you commenting and moaning about rumours and hearsay, if it happens we can all moan and slate the decision makers but until that happens all you can do is moan about rumours?

08 Aug 2019 07:32:19
2tone. we are stating facts not moaning.
You obviously agree with the way things are going. That's your choice.
You can happy clap and blow smoke up the backsides of those who make these ludicrous decisions.
Open your eyes as forest are in for a hard season.

08 Aug 2019 09:20:04
Just because we have several centre backs doesn't mean that position isn't a problem. Obviously the manager doesn't think they are good enough. The problem will be moving on the not wanted players.

07 Aug 2019 12:49:50
Just read an article in the evening post. Jermaine Jenas claims the way marinakis does business is a good formula for success as he apparently spends money on players!
Although this may be true the players coming here are ones we are unfamiliar with.
A multitude of midfielders and goalkeepers is not a solution to get success.
It's amazing how a seasoned footballer can hold claim to the above. The mind boggles.

Agree5 Disagree0

07 Aug 2019 15:36:33
FBB - yes but it is Jenas.

07 Aug 2019 17:32:19
It's evident that a Genius Jenas is not!

07 Aug 2019 18:53:56
Jenas went on to say he thinks the way Norwich went about getting promotion is the best way but that takes time which most clubs would not want. But never mind about that.?

07 Aug 2019 19:44:22
To be or not to be therefore Jenas is definitely not a genius.

07 Aug 2019 23:48:04
He said the best way to get promotion is to win matches in fact to win more than other teams 🤔.

07 Aug 2019 11:34:31
Carl Jenkinson signed for undisclosed fee. Will take time for him to be totally fit, but will stop Cash making all those mistakes. Also he's over 6 feet tall - a bonus. Samba signing today, quick, agile, comes for crosses, so two problem areas addressed.
We have enough midfielders, and central defenders.
All we need is a stellar striker - not sure we will get one so that's still a problem.
Now we need to move all the deadwood out and get to a squad of 24 or so.
I always found as a Manager that shifting people out was always more difficult than bringing good people in.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Aug 2019 12:16:02
London media saying a 3 year deal at a cost of £2m.

07 Aug 2019 12:37:58
Surprisingly Cash and Jenkinson are the same height and both decent in the air.
Jenkinson however offers far more security as a long term right back.

07 Aug 2019 13:09:27
Fred what makes you say that, the more either get forward the more space the opposition have when our moves break down. Cash could offer more goals from that position once he has adapted to it.

07 Aug 2019 13:12:42
This is a solid signing. There will be people here who argue otherwise but he's just as good as Byram, and he did a decent job for us when he was fit.

07 Aug 2019 13:31:08
Samba Sow will be our Kante picking up the pieces when our full backs fly down the wing!

07 Aug 2019 13:54:00
What makes me say what? That Jenkinson will be better at right back than Cash?
Cash was all over the shop against West Brom and looked anything but a right back.

07 Aug 2019 14:12:22
At least half a dozen need to go. And hopefully also go hell for leather after the long needed top striker?!

07 Aug 2019 15:20:26
Jenkinson has made 70 appearances in 8 season due to injury, wow should be a great addition.

07 Aug 2019 15:37:57
Go on bigred, keep up the negativity. that's the spirit.

07 Aug 2019 15:52:56
I must say sorry to you Fred, I thought you said Jenkinson will offer more security in the long term as a right back.

The response you gave me you must have said Jenkinson offers more security at right back now.

Had you said in the long term then what makes you say that as Cash has hardly played at right back, and Sl must see something in him to put him there, so he can only get better.

Once again sorry for getting what you said wrong.

06 Aug 2019 16:43:34
I’m generally a glass half full type of fan when it comes to Forest but I’m totally underwhelmed and baffled with who we are being linked with and the players we are signing.

Honestly thought that 4 quality signings added to what we already had from last season would be a great step forward
Cannot understand this scatter gun approach of signing all these players
I think Watson and Dawson and Worrell in the team is a backward step
We are still left with no Right back we might as well kept Osbourne there
As far as a striker we’ll i'm speechless
Can someone tell me where the planning on the field is?
I’m worried again.

Agree9 Disagree0

06 Aug 2019 16:49:18
Yes it really is deja vu. Loans free agents and untried foreign players and we're supposed to be going for promotion. Worried we'll be going in the other direction.

06 Aug 2019 17:45:28
Pure spectaculation but does the big Greek actually have the money for transfers with all the freebies etc?
Our current transfer policy sucks with all the influx of unproven/ unheard of players what does marinakis believe he will get the Premiership with this squad?

06 Aug 2019 17:54:37
He has the money yes but the question is does he want to invest that in forest which will then have to be wrote off.

06 Aug 2019 18:08:00
how can you even question whether the owner wants to spend money on forest when he's spending tens of millions of pounds on our ground?

06 Aug 2019 19:08:37
Nffcc99: because so far not a penny of it has been spent in rebuilding. He won't rebuild unless we look like getting into the top six. My bet is we won't and he'll pack up and go elsewhere.

06 Aug 2019 19:34:14
I think we've all missed the point about rebuilding the ground. It's part of a larger scheme with apartments etc. I don't believe in the bigger picture it will cost him anything. He will get it back through property sales.

06 Aug 2019 20:22:02
Nothing has started rebuilding yet not until the end of this season and the boat clubs have yet to move out so give it time we have seen the plans so will have to be patient.

06 Aug 2019 21:40:53
The ground will be built of that I'm sure, they aren't short of money they are just used to running a club in a Mickey mouse league with very little competition.
Olympiacos also have a large squad and mainly Europe's journeyman and has beens.
They have written off debts but have failed to pay fawaz what they agreed
They need to clear the decks of randall McGovern and Clarke and most importantly the dof.
Bring in people who know the English game who then can appoint the right manager and dof to take us forward.
All we are doing is going around in circles and getting nowhere.

07 Aug 2019 11:01:48
Fff79 with respect mate are you saying that McGovern and Clarke, don’t know anything about the English game?

07 Aug 2019 12:27:38
No stevie but they have held positions at first now for years and if they do have any say then they aren't up to much because all we've done is struggle and made poor decisions.
It's time for new blood.

07 Aug 2019 16:19:13
Watson won’t be in team long, Sow will replace him and once Carvalho is back Silva will move back and fight with Sow and Semedo for midfield place, is also now rumours Colback might be back on. Watson won’t get a look in unless we have major injuries.
Worrall is still learning and can do a job in my eyes though I expect Milosevic and either a new player (we seem to be being linked to Centre backs) or Fig to take long term places as we know Daws won’t stay fit long.
If we sign Colback and this lad from Levante and Samba in goal I think we have a very strong squad with depth, need to move a host of players on (Steele, Pants, Benyoune, Pep, Bridcutt, Clough, Ariyibi, Cummings, Murphy probably some others I forget! ) and sign another quality striker and i will be very happy.

06 Aug 2019 16:38:57
The lunatics have taken over the asylum. Mendy a four goal a season striker now been chased as well as sheep gk Carson. Is this real or am I just having a bad dream. O my god.

Agree8 Disagree0

06 Aug 2019 17:01:40
Retford. I've just woke up from the same bad dream.
There must be some sort of agenda going on here and i genuinely fear for this season.

06 Aug 2019 17:55:29
Retford as long as he puts a shift in he should be ok. be better than grabban then if he does a lot of running.

06 Aug 2019 20:10:35
Have we been taken over by closet Derby fans trying to destroy us? I can't believe their Forest fans.

06 Aug 2019 16:37:55
So now its Scot Carson from the shaggers as apparently the boss man wants an experienced goalkeeper in front of the ojion bag. If this rumour and talk is true then 😂🤣😂😂😂🤣🤣😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 wat the 💥💥💥💥💥. I know sum paper talk is fodder but seriously come on Pants may not be the best keeper in the world but until someone half decent at a slightly younger age comes along surely he will do for now.

Agree2 Disagree0

06 Aug 2019 18:36:27
Yabba dabba do Barney Rubble better than Pants? Now you really are having a laugh! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

07 Aug 2019 16:26:44
Pants is god awful and both him and Steele aren’t going to go up in price or be any sort of long term solution. Muric might be class long term but won’t be here next year. Both Samba and Carson would be a step up.
Still not top priority in my eyes but strikers who score are hard to find and cost a lot. still hope we can pull something off up front!

06 Aug 2019 16:30:34
Christ on a bike! Reading a report linking us with a move for the sheeps keeper Carson? Someone extracting the you know what! How many keepers do we need?
