Well the lad from malmo looks like class lol. From psg academy to greenock morton. Bargain basement shopping, as predicted. Looks like we are goung to reinforce the defensive mentality of lamouchi rather than learn from last season and become more adventurous. we are like homer simpson banging into a wall.

Rutland, I hear what you’re saying, I’m not one bit disappointed because this was always coming . We’ve got no money mate, I don’t think anyone has that hasn’t been recently in the prem.

We were never going to change the style of play we were only going to sign players better equipped to deliver it . It was quite effective in lamouchi’s defence, awful to watch I agree but largely effective . There simply won’t be any whole sale change to the clubs philosophy I’m afraid . We’ve gone full circle, it’s war Burton with more experienced players - not better - just more experienced . Boring football is Forest now mate. It’s actually the sixth season of it now if you include freedman and discount the brief encounter with Montanier .

2star i agree totally and its precarious times and i did say no big money will change hands anytime soon. It just gets like BENSON AND HEDGES daily. I for one don't clamour for the prem just some decent football even hoofball with an attacking threat will suffice as long as we get at them. Let results dictate where we end up. But don't promise us the moon on a lolly stick and then wonder why it didn't happen.

This is why we haven't got any money, these wage stats according to a website for the 2019/ 20 season plus the £2.5 million we are still paying Benfica each year for Carvalho.

Just listened to Neil Warnock on radio re Boros preperations for new season. Getting rid of 8 players, signed 1. But there is plenty of time . Got a couple of friendlies this week but he said doesn't care less about results just wants players feeling their way back.
This is from a top manager who usually gets promotion.
My point is after some reactions to us losing our friendly and the fact we haven't YET signed an attacking midfielder there seems to be a knee jerk panic that we are just going to play defensive and getting bargain basement players. Savy dealing getting a good striker for free and transfer window has 4 weeks to go. i'm sure we are working on further attacking options, we just need patience. The vast majority of clubs haven't disclosed their lists of players available for transfer or been released so patience needed.

There’s a few Drama Queens on here Trentender, they love to have a hissy fit about things that are totally out of their control. Then some other spoiled brat agrees with them then they all go into full melt down mode together.

Keep the Faith.

Trentender, I think you’re aggregating two points into one in your responses .

There are definitely knee jerk reactions around signings not being big name .

There are also posters who hoped Lamouchi would change the style of play after a very poor showing last season - albeit effective - in an entertainment context.

Whilst linked, They are very subtlety different concerns, every player in my opinion should be given a chance before being written off, it does appear we can expect more of the same from a type of football perspective . Hopefully the players can execute it better and have a little more bottle than not at all.

Good post Skeggby - nice bit of research, I’m finding myself questioning how expert those running the club really are . Far too many failed signings at forest, it’s an extraordinary strategy to deploy when it clearly doesn’t work.

Bostock, Silva, Semedo, sow, carvalho, diakhby are no better whatsoever than Osborn adomah and colback. Surely a combination of selling or not bothering at all with those six would have ensured we kept Osborn, played adomah and brought colback .

Jenkinson and bong complete waste of precious money . It’s a difficult one to sus out.

25 Aug 2020 11:51:59
Skegbyred just put up a list. If 50% of that is accurate its shocking. Take out worrall cash lolley and grabban and maybe samba then you have a nothing but average at best squad. Carp in other words. And trent when we talk about warnock he won't panic as he is an experienced manager working with a realistic owner. You just know that he will rinse out the players he doesn't rate and bring in the right sort of player to progress the club. Do you think he would be paying money for an unknown from malmo with 4 yrs at greenock mortin on his cv Yes i moan a lot but my god its so easy with this clown like set up at forest. YOU JUST COULD NOT MAKE IT UP.

25 Aug 2020 12:26:07
The biggest fear is that the people we have just brought in end up once again as average to dud and do nothing but warm benches.

25 Aug 2020 12:45:26
Warnock is a far better Manager than Lamouchi.
He speaks his mind and gets his point across and along with his experience he gets his team behind.
Marinakis and co still have no concept or realistic idea about English football.
Trent do you really think forest wil get a playmaking midfielder? . Nope.
Lamouchi's tactics is designed to be defensive.
Like Warburton he's predictable and one dimensional many teams have realised this and taken advantage of this on many occasions.
You seem to barrage those posters who don't share your ethos Trent!

25 Aug 2020 22:18:35
Firstly I give my opinion didn't realise I must just agree or not comment about your posts.
Re getting the attacking midfielder I think the club are well aware they need just that but just because we haven't got one yet doesn't mean it will happen.

Look at the transfers in championship so far and bar Norwich there's been hardly any business. 4 to 5 weeks of window still open. a lot of Premier teams still not decided who they will sell or loan out. i'm positive your not, we are all different.
