Gregor Robertson asks should Martin add Youth, Vigor, and Dynamism this summer like Lampard did at Lampard County.

In a word, yes.

Ryan Kent would be top of my list.

Gerrard has been told he would cost £12m on a permanent basis, we could have him on loan, then sign permanently should we get to the Premier league.

It’s not just youth, vigour and dynamism. You have to have a coaching plan and style of application other than hoofball

So I never post on here. Been reading comments for years. Just seen that Swansea have released Leroy fer, Luciano narsingh, Wilfred bony, and Wayne routledge. We should get all of them. All of them with great quality’s and have experience. Thinking they would smash the championship. Bony knows where the goal is. Fer a strong midfielder and narsingh a fast winger with quality. Anyone else agree? All on a free too remember that.

Fmm89, What you have to think about is 3 things, what wages will they expect, did they let their contracts run down, did their club let their contracts run down.

Dependant on what the answers to the above are you then decide do i really want them at Forest.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 May 2019 14:22:33
All released because of their wages

Wages apart Ff, would you want any of them, who would you want the most, if any at all.

Yh that’s very true lc. I think I would rather have narsingh or bony on 50k a week than colback. We have midfielders. Or get rid of the dead wood and get colback and then narsingh or bony. We should get rid of bridcutt for a start and lots of other pointless wage fean midfielders

Agree0 0Disagree

18 May 2019 19:04:25
We aren't in any position to pay any player 50k a week and bony ain't that good had one good season and got his dream move to city but failed miserably and has failed going back to Swansea.
No one will pay him anywhere that now.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 May 2019 19:58:54
Fer would be the main one I would go for.

Bony wages will be too much, Narsingh and Routledge are probably past it.

So around this time last year the rumours and discussions were had about a striker Marriot and he was over valued and unproven at this level. Frankly was quick to jump in and pay the money and develop him alongside older Experienced strikers. Still not the finished striker by a mile but worth the gamble in my opinion. We bought a journey injury prone striker who can score but lacks the ambition now just seeing out his time. We are better than that we want hungry players all over the pitch.
COYR.

Marriot not the finished striker, but worth the gamble in your opinion, once the season is over you decide to state that. 🤔

I do agree with you that we need hungry players

Could someone please explain to me how when a manager is one point off the play offs the management at forest decide to make things difficult and get rid of him. Now when a manager loses points by not playing our best team and ends up nine the forest management decide to keep him. It is forest all over it's a joke!

18 May 2019 11:43:24
Red lipstick, I understand your frustration but AK was equally as inconsistent. It’s hard to say where we would be if he’d have stayed because many teams hit some form around Xmas and go on a good run. O’Neil dropped silly points against Rotherham and Blackburn but so did Ak against QPR and Preston. You could argue for and against in equal strength for both managers I think.

The irony will be Karanka going back to Boro and getting them promoted next season!

Agree0 0Disagree

18 May 2019 20:27:01
Gibson won't employ him again red,so there will be no irony.
What is this fixation you have about karanka being a good manager?
If it's the one promotion,then Roy Keane's d8d that for Sunderland,so we already have a good manager in waiting when Martin hands over the mantle.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 May 2019 23:27:44
Karanka had his day at Middlesbrough, he won't repeat what he did there . His 4-2-3-1 formation as been found out and will produce more draws then anything . he's a mid table manager.

I work in Burton, consequently I’m surrounded by Sheep Botherers, as well as a smattering of other fans. Over the past week I have spoken to a West Brom fan, a derby fan, a Leeds fan and a villa fan. The Derby and Baggies seem to not want to go to the premiership, both of them said the following reasoning: I don’t want to go to a league where we lose most weeks, and celebrate not getting relegated, I did assure the derby fan that he didn’t have to worry about the latter thing, however it did get me thinking, do I want to see us get promoted only to lose most weeks? Yes I do. For me you can never swim with the big fishes if you don’t get into their pond. I don’t think we are there yet, but I also don’t think we’re a small fry. What I do think is that you can’t be so negative especially if you’re in the playoffs, you spend a whole season to get there and then hope to get out of it ASAP, though it does explain Derby’s seasonal flops.

The Direby fan at my local Co-op (ewenace) has been saying all season that she doesn't want promotion.I can't understand that mindset!

Agree0 0Disagree

18 May 2019 00:35:23
Ok, so Lampard and Cole in the Direby camp and Terry in the Villains camp? Am I the only one not loving the Chelsea love in? Stuff them both I say, both sailed close to the FFP precipice, may the loser suffer in hell. 👍😊.

Norwich had one of, if not the youngest squad in the Championship, they are now in advanced talks with Aberdeen for a 18 year old goalkeeper Archie Mair, as they are now a Premier league team he must be good for his age.

Just read we could get colback for a million should snap it up and what we save on transfer fee can afford to pay his wages.

Agree1 0Disagree

17 May 2019 13:50:33
Dan, Wow only £1m. What about the possible £50,000 a week he will be on, how will that go down in the dressing room. What will Lolley demand if Forest gives Colback £50,000, then Grab my Achilles will want the same, then any new signings will want similar.

We won our last games without
him, so drop the wage demands or go and lose yourself is what he needs to be told.

Agree5 1Disagree

17 May 2019 15:05:29
Agree LC, good player but not that good. Always seemed to be playing at 70% to me. Sign of a good player or one who thinks he's better than Forest? Club finances can't stretch for him or the knock on effect.

I think we should be targeting these players
1 rb . Byram offer 1m. Plus add ons after he's played set amount of games and proves his fitness
2 holding midfielder. Colback 1m lower his wages but over 3 year deal.
3 lb Bidwell free
4 gk Westwood free
5 creative midfielder?
6. Speedy Winger to compliment Lolley
7 forward to challenge grabbon
Some of these could be loans.
But we need to shift at least 15 off retained list.

Agree2 0Disagree

17 May 2019 14:36:35
So you basically want nearly a whole new team. 😠😠😠😠.

We need to bring in 3 or 4 at the most that are a lot better than we already have, should we be doing well enough come January then another 2 or 3 if sufficient funds are available.

Changing most of the team in one go usually fails.

Agree1 1Disagree

17 May 2019 14:55:21
Red always is right though LC the position's he's identified are the ones that need strengthening and he's correct in saying at least 15 need to go,too many defenders and too many midfielders at the moment and not enough quality.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 May 2019 17:27:00
Fff79, I do not disagree that there are a lot of players to get rid of but how many are likely to be gone by windows end, and it could be argued who is responsible for that situation.

I have to say that it does not matter what the situation is as how many players positions need strengthening because if the club has enough money it could be argued every position needs to be strengthened as well as the other squad players.

I feel however that we as fans need to be a bit more thoughtful about how many players get brought in, we do not know how much the club is willing to spend, and we do not need to know.

I suppose everyone is different but i would prefer to spend all of the money available on a small amount of players to hopefully increase the quality by a large amount instead of bringing in a load of players and only improving the quality by a small amount.

I doubt very much that the club can afford to bring in as many as Red always wants and increase the quality by a large amount. Like i said before, bringing large amounts of players in one go usually fails.

Assuming the club has not got the funds on a large scale which route would you prefer the club take, Quality or Quantity.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 May 2019 19:27:55
Thing is the list of players that need to go is obvious.
Steele
Smith
Hefele
Dawson
Watson
Geddy
Arybi
Murphy
Cummings
Grant
Soudani
Ansarfarad
Vellios
Bridcutt
None of these are good enough to take us forward,7 good players to replace them would make a difference.

Agree0 1Disagree

17 May 2019 19:28:00
LC Red is only suggesting 3 or 4 new ones.
We already had Colback + Byram in the squad and the other positions need upgrading to balance the squad!

Agree0 0Disagree

17 May 2019 20:09:08
RIE, Without Byram and Colback i saw 5 players.

I know two are free, but both Colback and Byram will want good wages, what happens if Byram has a normal season for him and hardly plays.

I see what you mean about Colback and Byram already knowing the team but they would still have 5 new players to get use to, and the manager will have to experiment to find his best team so the players have that to contend with.

Ff, I take it from your post you either think the club will spend big, or prefer Quantity over Quality.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 May 2019 20:40:49
LC the club can't spend big,we've just wasted money trying to get to the prem by bringing quantity,we must be losing millions and 39 million losses over three seasons is looking like happening if were not careful

Agree0 0Disagree

17 May 2019 21:02:35
Ff, So you want 7 players coming in, and to improve the quality, but you say we will not, or can not spend big, you hate loan players, that then means a lot of free players.

Oh do you think we will get rid of a lot of unwanted players saving a lot of money.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 May 2019 21:19:21
You have to offload at least the players I've mentioned before signing players,
They were bad signings that are costing us millions,if we can't offload them then there won't be any major signings.
Loans cost just as much in wages and the ones we had were crap,barring colback,but even he is no world beater and if Newcastle want him off the books it's a free or nothing,there won't be a queue for him at that price and wages.
D9nt even try telling me how good Byram is,if he can't stay fit then he is of no use.
Seen enough of sicknotes being signed and can't stay fit.
Vaughan and traore come to mind.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 May 2019 07:07:25
Fff79. Smith is a good shot stopper and got plenty of time to improve on his weakness.
Arybi is getting better.
Soudani could set the Championship alight, not known for being injured much.
I'm not sure but Dawson could see out his contract, he did not miss many games for Hull.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 May 2019 09:50:28
Ff, I like yourself think Byram needs to prove his fitness before joining Forest, he is is however very talented when he is gets off the treatment table.

How on earth are Smith and Grant costing Forest millions.

Guedioura, Watson, Hefele, and Murphy are all past their best.

Gboly seems to be getting his head sorted, and could be a superb squad player.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 May 2019 10:09:39
Your in dreamland if you think soudani can set the championship alight,Smith and grant couldn't get in mansfields side and arybi has failed in the lower divisions with MK Don's and Northampton and had to go and play Mickey mouse league now.
Get rid of em along with the old timers.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 May 2019 11:49:11
Totally with you on that one FF

Agree0 0Disagree

18 May 2019 12:24:42
Ff, You have made a fair point there about Gboly.

I was not suggesting Smith is definitely ready yet, but i think if he is treated right he will be a good goalkeeper.

You mentioned getting rid of the old timers, does that include Grabban.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 May 2019 13:21:37
I would sell grabban for 5 mill,don't know if it's just me but he seems very moody at times.
I'd go for Gayle,a couple of years younger and very prolific.
Don't like his diving at times,but he'd be a great signing for us
