Everything seems great throughout the squad for a change everyone seems to be playing great as well so sl must have a headache a good headache on who to play against Preston will be another toughie but we must be high in confidence after the last couple of games be nice to get a good unbeaten run together 😁.


1.) 29 Aug 2019 07:29:41
Watson out, Bostock in, surely.

2.) 29 Aug 2019 11:03:20
Over 90% pass completion, younger, hungrier, more composed and agile than Watson. Get him in.

3.) 29 Aug 2019 20:02:15
Watson along with Dawson and Worrall have been outstanding!
Last week at Fulham they limited Fulham to two attempts on goal despite 78% possession.

4.) 29 Aug 2019 21:35:19
I'm not saying watson has been poor, I also think he's done a solid job, but bostock looks a class above.

5.) 29 Aug 2019 21:35:59
Also, I never mentioned Dawson or Worrall who have formed such a solid pairing.

6.) 29 Aug 2019 22:58:56
I know you didn’t mention Dawson and Worrall. But the three are a unit. and Watson orchestrates play. He is the brains of the team.
But, I agree at 35 he can’t play every game.

7.) 01 Sep 2019 15:23:12
The problem with Watson he does the covering role in that midfield. His positioning and breaking up play is vital. It always a role that's totally unappreciated by most fans because he isn't running with the ball, making defence breaking passes and scoring goals. Other players may have more flair but do they have the defensive nous that Watson has. That's the key to his position and the excellent defensive record at the moment and I wish more fans would appreciate that istead of putting him down.



16 Jul 2019 23:22:10
Did we get silva for free reminds me of silenza 😜 the Portuguese lads look too light weight for me lolley stand out player again lose him were in trouble.


1.) 17 Jul 2019 10:17:30
We got everybody for nowt skegs that's why there crap. God knows what the new manager at Christmas is going to make of this lot.
Bet O'Neill is laughing is head off.

2.) 17 Jul 2019 11:00:21
Thats what i like lads give the players a fair chance. They've only had 2/ 3 training seasons and a couple of game. Why do everyone on here thinks its so easy to be a manager and to find a formula that will win everygame we play. I bet most people on here who moan plays Football Manager then thinks its so easy. Why don't they get off their butts and apply for the job when by all accounts according to them the posistion will be open again in the very near future. I love NF and been a supporter for decades and it hurts me to see what's happening to them at the mo but what we need is stability not constant changes. COYR.

3.) 17 Jul 2019 11:03:11
Keane was a very smart man.

4.) 17 Jul 2019 11:15:43
Bez they talk about being 3 weeks in front in training and pre season. Total nonsense. These guys have been playing football for 20 years. So they have 2 month off and need to be retrained?
O'Neill certainly got stability.
We've got rid of a manager who won everything and swapped him for a manager who's won nowt and signed a load of failed freebies.
Gonna be a long season my friend.

5.) 17 Jul 2019 11:28:24
Bezman you won't get stability if the owners keep buying 8 players every transfer window, the word buying I'll use loosely.
They then expect the coach to get promoted with these players and when it doesn't happen the sack the coach at xmas.
It's the owners who have got it wrong on the playing side not us fans.

6.) 17 Jul 2019 11:43:15
Everyone has an opinion of this which i uderstand and appreciate but at the end of the day football is a business now and not a sport and the man who puts money (alot of money at that) into the club has the right to say what's what. If he's not happy he has the right to change what he thinks is right and i know its a bit different in greece to here but i personally think he has the best interest for NF at heart. I know its difficult for us loyal supporters to see this but i truely think the good times is just around the corner.

7.) 17 Jul 2019 12:14:58
Bezman stop being so level headed. It’s not allowed on here πŸ˜‚.

8.) 17 Jul 2019 12:17:16
Whinging and whining and the season hasn't even started, it's a friendly, If weaknesses in certain players are spotted now, better than in the league imo, everyone is getting a chance.

God help us all when it does start, everybody duck when the rattles and dummies get thrown out:)

9.) 17 Jul 2019 12:47:23
Lol pot kettle comes to mind as I said earlier get your best 11 together and start playing them now every season and manager as done the same thing for years swap change players formations and when they think they've found there best 11 by Xmas there sacked because they can't get consistency and the merry go round starts again I don't understand what fans think there going to get with a bunch of freebies nobody else wanted and to top it off lolley will be gone very soon lucky if we make mid table this season.

10.) 17 Jul 2019 12:54:43
Sorry Redtree πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

11.) 17 Jul 2019 13:13:39
Quite interesting how you describe any forest fan that doesn't agree with your idea of a fan as a moaner or whinger.
Think you might get a shock when the season does get underway, the squad needed strengthening with a bit of quality only adomah offers that the rest are no better than we had, personally think we'll struggle and that's not moaning my friend it's just the way I see it.

12.) 17 Jul 2019 13:43:15
Hey all i'm saying is everybody should have an opinion and eveybody has the right to think what they want because i moan about NF all the time because they are so frustrating. Every NF supporter has their own ideas on how they should play but at the end of the day we are not the manager and rightly or wrongly we should at some level support the manager and hope he gets it right. On to the players that have come in we have to trust the manager again unfortunatly but look in the past when we were getting some questionable players like Kenny Burns and a few others and i would say people were thinking the same about Brian and Peter.

13.) 17 Jul 2019 13:45:48
I actually agree with you Skegs. I am hoping that’s the last we see of some players e. g. Watson, Osborn and Cash at rightback. And that match was simply to get one last look at them. We do need to be cementing our first 11 down now. As for what 79’s saying I personally love to hear negative perspectives of you grumpy whingers. Gives me a chance to bring you some positivity and wind you lot up πŸ˜‚.

14.) 17 Jul 2019 14:06:09
Good man redtree😁😁😁😁.

15.) 17 Jul 2019 14:07:03
Not any Forest fan just you two and there is no description just a statement, quite interesting how you just made that up:) .

Don't be putting words into peoples mouths now, just my fish hooks in yours, lol.

Cheer up, you may even like it!

16.) 17 Jul 2019 14:09:41
Cement our best 11.two are already missing by way of Cavalho and Yates!

17.) 17 Jul 2019 15:53:04
In reply to initial post:
- Tiago Silva reported between 1 and 2 million
- Ribeiro was a free but with 50% sell-on clause
- The rest were for free or on loan deals

Anyone know how much we got for Ansarifard, Soudani, Vellios, Grant?

18.) 17 Jul 2019 16:09:54
Lol gingerkid you read what you put and your calling everyone a whinger that posted a bad comment about last night's game.
Cant put words into your mouth as we aren't communicating by mouth
Keep happy clapping chap πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘.

19.) 17 Jul 2019 16:13:19
I am expecting 3-4 signings.

20.) 17 Jul 2019 16:46:55
Hope a couple of proven strikers. Right back and?

21.) 17 Jul 2019 18:28:51
We need centre midfielders I would go back in for Pele. Its looking like Yacob and Gueds are going and I am hoping Watson follows them.

22.) 17 Jul 2019 19:20:17
FF. Well put. it's not his fault he's folicley colour challenged.

23.) 17 Jul 2019 19:54:45
Nope still just you 2 :)

It is pretty funny you two can give it all day long to others, but can't take it yourselves, pmsl, sorry bout that princess.

(FWB, it's not your fault you can't spell follicle, 2 L's, but don't worry, I won't tell anyone, shhh) .

24.) 17 Jul 2019 21:27:40
Give what out exactly gingerkid?
And can't take what?
Let's all live in your world and just pretend everything is rosy and top six a formalityπŸ€”πŸ€”.

25.) 17 Jul 2019 22:43:05
I agree it’s not easy which is why I can’t grasp how the last two chaps weren’t given some time - given the fact it’s a very tough job and will take time.

26.) 18 Jul 2019 06:35:51
Ginger it's not your fault your a giver not a taker. You will be OK.
Most on here take the banter on the chin but others. Hmmm they to heart. And regarding I stand corrected. Thanks! 🐱.

27.) 18 Jul 2019 09:31:29
Ginger, I find, is the most diplomatic and tactful of gentlemen. Always supported me when I felt that managers were not using subs wisely. We benefit greatly from his input.



01 Jul 2019 10:02:11
And here we go linked to signing former rennes goalkeeper let the fun begin lol.


1.) 01 Jul 2019 11:01:16
I don't know about Rennes, but I've been taking lots of Rennie after recent events!

2.) 01 Jul 2019 15:12:33
What with the Man City and Rennes goalies who may be signing, plus the 3 first team goalies already on the books.The club will be well off for keepers. Perhaps one of them can play centre forward.

3.) 01 Jul 2019 16:36:13
Burncross: perhaps one of them can play in goal.I've got it! They can all play in goal, that might stop a few scores against. . maybe.

4.) 01 Jul 2019 17:20:53
Very funny S_Getty!

5.) 01 Jul 2019 17:58:05
Maybe play Pants up top 6'8" ,,he,s not really a goalie !

6.) 01 Jul 2019 18:09:01
Then play Murphy in goal. he's not really a forward!

7.) 01 Jul 2019 19:56:20
And play the manager as the mascot cause he's not really a manager 😁.

8.) 01 Jul 2019 21:01:52
You lot. πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚.

9.) 01 Jul 2019 23:10:31
I'm sure now that Terry the kit Man will be playing for us soon.



04 Jan 2019 00:29:07
As I've said before, Mr maranakis would you please come out and back karanka. I don't want any change now it's too late. back the manager, let him do his deals in January and let the fans know where they stand.


1.) 04 Jan 2019 10:22:11
Absolutely pointless in Maranakis publicly backing Krankie. It usually only means 'the manager will be sacked after the next loss'.

2.) 04 Jan 2019 12:56:12
I think theirs more to it. Our owner is determined to get rid of karanka. But his hands are currently tied because karanka as the backing of players and supporters.
But will this mean karanka isn't allowed to improve squad or even as a player like lolley sold against his wishes.
Sure we will find out either way within next week.

3.) 04 Jan 2019 13:11:03
What makes you think our owner is determind to get rid of Karanka? Surely if he was that determind he would be gone already?

4.) 04 Jan 2019 14:16:30
Red. If the owner wants rid of AK, he won't give a toss whether the players or the fans want him to stay.
He will just get rid.

5.) 04 Jan 2019 15:47:23
He would have got rid of him if he wanted to.

6.) 04 Jan 2019 17:23:04
Red. Please explain?

7.) 04 Jan 2019 20:28:44
I think some fans are still apprehensive due to the Fawaz era.
I believe AK was ready for the sack but I also believe Maranakis has backed off and is giving him time to push on after our support and the performance against the dirty.
Let's hope AK keeps the run going and make it impossible to sack him but our owner is very ambitious which we should be grateful of. . I think.
I just hope he isn't waiting for another loss to pull the trigger as that would be harsh especially if he included Chelsea

8.) 04 Jan 2019 22:42:24
Fa was bank balance. Just a feeling.
Due to all new appointments like DOF.
Possibly a new sporting director who happened to be a manager. The owners continued silence
And a week into January and their doesn't seem to be concrete rumours of new signings. When karanka had said he knew the 3/4 players he would like.

9.) 04 Jan 2019 22:57:24
It's a power struggle between marinakis and karanka,only one winner unless karanka backs downπŸ€”πŸ€”
Let's hope common sense prevails and we move on united,otherwise he'll be replaced

10.) 04 Jan 2019 23:54:17
The owner needs to realise that unlike the Greek league you can’t change managers 2-3 times a season and still win the league.last seasons teams all went with managers that had a full season,Warnock October the previous season,Fulham’s was there 2 1/2 seasons and wolves manager started end of May.

11.) 05 Jan 2019 23:29:53
Why would any serious owner feed fans insecurities by popping his head up above the parapet and making comment?
Just buy a ticket and be thankful you have a board and management team that actually know what they are doing?
I wonder which of the infamous 4 are going to bite first? 🐬🐬



02 Jan 2019 21:47:50
Jose anigo sporting director is he New manager awaiting in the wings.


1.) 02 Jan 2019 22:57:29
Stella for a year on me Skegs if that one turns out to be true.

2.) 02 Jan 2019 23:40:56
Thanks that will do me strange timing though.

3.) 03 Jan 2019 00:34:50
Not the best reviews from French fans.

4.) 03 Jan 2019 13:42:11
Skegsjay, if that happens can you see a load of French players joining us.?

5.) 03 Jan 2019 14:39:52
They aren't talking about him being the new manager, just the sporting director.

6.) 03 Jan 2019 15:05:47
799, If read Skegsjays post again you will notice he asks, even though it could be in jest could end up replacing our current manager.

7.) 03 Jan 2019 15:10:22
Perhaps he's getting a foot in the managerial door?

8.) 03 Jan 2019 17:28:38
One word 'WHY'

08 Dec 2019 15:31:53
Can someone explain to me as I'm a bit thick lol if we have bought carvahlo and we pay 13 million over 5 years where do we stand if we sell him in January do we get to keep the money from the sale and carry on paying instalments over 5 years or do we have to give the money to pay the player off just wandering.


{Ed001's Note - carry on paying instalments.}

1.) 08 Dec 2019 16:16:07
Thanks Ed 1.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate. They could choose to pay it off early with the money if they wanted, but as they are usually receiving payment in instalments, it very rarely happens.}

2.) 08 Dec 2019 18:23:37
Skeggs don't worry you'll get your 13 million back soon. lol😁😁😁.

3.) 08 Dec 2019 23:19:31
I would be happy with half back 79 you can see he has talent but just not in the championship or premiership some players fit he doesn't saying that abroad he might be great anyway onwards and upwards dreading assombongla coming back to haunt us this week will be a tough game.

4.) 09 Dec 2019 06:36:11
Forget that 79 he's injured.



06 Dec 2019 21:43:51
Great point at Millwal happy with that second half brilliant grabbon well done mate not been your greatest fan in the past but you was wearing that shirt with pride tonight ureddssss.


1.) 06 Dec 2019 22:42:24
Yes Skeggy Jay very happy with a decent point away it is ashame we cudnt hold out for 5 minutes or so but against a strong physical team we played very well especially second half. Although sobe might say Grabban and Lolley should start circus nice to a Forest team after halftime and a change in formation andca couple players come out fighting. Yes maybe start with the same players but too many times in the past we've seen our team start the second half the same as they ended the first half { if playing badly) . This season is all about learning if results go our way tomorrow we will still be top 6 so happy days. Whatever this season brings we need to keep hold of Lamouchi.

2.) 07 Dec 2019 02:20:39
Where would we be without grabban that's what i say. so vital for us at the moment. roll on January and hopefully we can get some decent back up. fairly happy with a point tonight especially after the first half showing.



27 Nov 2019 21:46:23
Well done lads and one of the best solo goals I've seen for some time at forest by carvahlo if he could just play like that week in week out well chuffed better get some more Stella's down me to celebrate onwards and upwards 🍻🍻.


1.) 27 Nov 2019 22:09:51
Missed the whole of pre season skeggs he's just getting up to speed.
Enjoy the Stella's and save the champagne for may when at last we will be back in the prem. 🍻🍻🍻πŸ₯‚πŸ₯‚πŸ₯‚.

2.) 28 Nov 2019 06:44:31
JC was class when he came on. Not just his goal but his passing and link up play was brilliant. Ok he had a lot of time and space due to thee sending off but the lad is a definite talent.



09 Nov 2019 13:24:27
Looking good just need to do a bit more in front of goal Silva growing on me didn't rate him but great to be proven wrong he's turning into a very good player come on lads get that goal in the second half so I can do some celebrating 😁.


1.) 09 Nov 2019 14:07:18
Silva growing on me skeggs, wish I had gold growing on me though. 🀣🀣🀣.

2.) 09 Nov 2019 14:01:34
Oh no. He's coming on. Not happy about that.

3.) 09 Nov 2019 14:25:27
I am happy now though.



02 Nov 2019 18:32:54
Well done lads keep it up πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘.

And again as I've said before will we get a big named striker that is going to sit on the bench and wait for grabbon to get injured were not going to change the system it works and we're not going to pay 10 to 15 million pound on a striker to sit on the bench we already have a number 10 that's cost us 13 million sitting on the bench it will be a up and coming foreign lad that we probably haven't heard off that will learn off grabbon we will probably invest more in a attacking midfielder or a attacking winger any way its good watching you come up with all these top strikers it's like reading the papers every morning lol 4 nil tonight uredddsss.

Good results for us tonight 79 but we can't go through the season relying on other results even though I'm happy if they go for us some clever signings new year could be the difference in keeping us top 6 play offs at the end of the season would be great for the fans especially them who pay to see them week in week out and even better for the fans that have followed them for over 40 years lol but like I say I think next season we will be a force to be reckoned with 😁.

Totally agree 79 best manager we've had in ages and still building we lose him back to square one with muppet like krankie over paid and useless.
