I am amazed at the significance of championship/ British based players being signed. It's totally opposite from anything else from the time Marinakis has taken over the club. I'll be amazed if someone waiting behind the scenes isn't already picking his players ready to take over? It's just too difficult to be understand what other reason for such a huge change in the way things are happening.

Agree2 Disagree0

Who knows with Marinakis?
All these players coming in and none going out is a concern.
Lambrini is stocking up on defenders.

21 Sep 2020 18:15:31
well you would have to be blind not to see that the foreign experiment didn't work so maybe they have learned something after all. whether sl has finally learnt that his negative tactics don't work is a different matter.

21 Sep 2020 18:46:50
Smithy I'm not sure if Lambrini has leaned anything nor the owner.
Perhaps would should apply for a trial?
I could do a good job in the D team! 🤣🤣🤣🤣.

Im glad we have got in some new defenders, the ones we have played with are weak. Figs was literally brushed aside at QPR for the penalty and again against Cardiff, landing on backside.
Hopefully Blackett, Christie, Soh (when ready) and McKenna will be more robust . Some have questioned managers tactics as an explanation for the goals conceded but surely centre halves know its their job to be strong, jump higher than forwards and head the ball out.
Yes we have lots of dead wood but why go on about it. The club can't shift them as they are on their last big pay day and have a contract, so unless someone comes in and offers the same money they won't go.
8 are out of contract next June.
Lets just be gratefull that the owner isn't asset stripping as some have said but has backed the club staff with the players they want and put is hand in his pocket whilst still paying the deadwood.

21 Sep 2020 19:06:44
Good balanced post trent. got to agree to a certain extent. I think we have really got to take some positives from whst seems calamatous. Msybe their is a plan snd lamouchi is getting his way.

21 Sep 2020 19:18:26
What a load of Crap Trent!
Lambrini is like Bambi on Ice is clueless and oozes negativity which has rubbed off on the players.
The squad is bloated because the Big Greek has no idea how to run Forest and by thinking x amount of players will make a difference to how we perform is delusional.
I don't fathom why you think Lapoochie is the man to Forest forward when even a blind can see he's not!

21 Sep 2020 19:51:56
Think christie will make a difference if only for the fact he has pace, and jenkinson is like a cart horse, hope McKenna ( has he signed yet) can head a ball away,

21 Sep 2020 20:37:36
Trentender I think why people question the coaches tactics is because the surrendering of so much possession puts the back four under constant pressure,

21 Sep 2020 20:37:47
Lol trentender bizarre! Why do you think people keep raising the dead wood?

21 Sep 2020 21:07:19
I don't know 2 star please tell me. The club tried to use them but it hasn't worked, every club in the land suffers the same result at some stage. The owner is happy to pay for them so why does it bother you? that's bizarre.
As for Fawaz . manager like bambi on ice really well argued mate, pointless. So do you advocate that the owner buys no players to try and improve the squad? you would be the first to bleat he lacks ambition.

21 Sep 2020 21:28:31
We have to be concerned with having so many players in the bomb squad as they will create a bad atmosphere at the club.
Any boss of any company knows to be successful you have to have a happy workforce, football relues as team spirt on team spirit and you can't get a good team spirit with so many players rotting and their treatment.

21 Sep 2020 21:42:22
I genuinely thought you were on the wind up then, I see you’re not now. Simply from a sustainability point of view it’s got to stop, we will either fall foul of fair play or the owner will simply tire of his own mistakes like doughty .

What I thought was bizarre was the humour of this site of people winding each other up with comments to get a reaction, I see now this is your view so fair enough. Mine is polar in it’s sincerity that we can’t nor should expect to be able to afford funding so many mistakes and that better players than we make mistakes signing are continuously sacrificed to fund those mistakes .

That’s before you consider the strange atmosphere it must be creating at the club. In any case hopefully lamouchi will be gone soon and someone else can have a crack as I’m certain there is a good championship 11 in there somewhere.

I’d be interested to hear your views on the first two games of the season too?

21 Sep 2020 22:12:08
Majority of forest fans want it to stop 2 star.
Trentender wears his heart on his sleve and like gigerkid thinks its best not to be negative in any way and things will suddenly change.

21 Sep 2020 22:12:11
2star how can ffp be measured with no gate receipts?

21 Sep 2020 22:36:01
Ffp will be a problem for authorities to implement, maybe marinakis thinks all these crap signings will get us there and we won't get punished?
We should be building on last seasons failure at the last hurdle not bring in a new team of hasbeens with no leader on the pitch.

22 Sep 2020 05:57:44
FF. Marinakis has no clue but until he sells up the continuous cycle of Dross Players and another inept Coach will carry on at this Circus.

22 Sep 2020 06:03:13
2star we as fans have every right to be concerned of how forest is run.
You cannot sustain 40 plus players and think of the Salary bill each year and those who play still get payed!
Poor Business ethos and a fast way to a downward spriral.
Also the impact of new signings who walk into the team will also rub players up the wrong. again influx of too many players. utter joke!

22 Sep 2020 07:15:05
Trent are you really that blindsided by our fantastic leaders tactical prowess?
The Fat greek can't bloat the squad with crap players.
Colback Taylor and freeman good choices.
Mckenna has yet to be tested along with others.
You choose which way you sway but this club will be ruined if it trys to sustain business on and off the field like it does at present.
Lamouchi is an arrogant fool who lost his team and is a one trick pony.
Like i keep reiterating whilst the fat greek is in charge things won't change.

22 Sep 2020 07:16:01
Good post 2star. 👍.

22 Sep 2020 08:45:36
Fawaz as a matter of interest, where do you see this queue of billionaires lining up to buy the club in the current financial climate?

22 Sep 2020 08:57:16
Perhaps it can’t this season but you can’t deny the squad has become a ridiculous size and will harm us financially in the long run. Let’s assume this year doesn’t count in the 3. Year loss calculations, it will come back to bite us next year if fans are back as gates will drop hugely anyway.

Perhaps Marinakis is gambling on a prolonged suspension of the rules? Either way it’s not great for the club having so many ostracised players, adomah 32 and seems to be a good honest pro? What is banishing him all about?

22 Sep 2020 09:20:22
Stevie, all the more reason to stop making the same mistakes with players over and over again. The O Neil team needed a few tweaks nothing more . He’d inherited a decent side from Karanka . There is no denying the last 12 months have been as random and volatile as any other in the clubs history .

22 Sep 2020 10:57:55
2star I’m not saying I agree with the way the club is being run, but driving this bloke out is a dangerous course of action at the moment,

22 Sep 2020 11:39:01
Stevie if Marinakis keeps doing what he's doing what do you think the consequences will be?
He owns the club but going about business like he does it not a way to success.
Surely he must realise the mistakes the club are making?
Also if success isn't achieved how long before he gives up on Forest?
I agree there's nobody queuing up to save forest but a line has to be drawn somewhere how the club's ran!

22 Sep 2020 13:10:40
Fawaz firstly what's your issue with owner being Greek, you do keep mentioning it.
Secondly are you a multi million pound company boss? You come across as such an expert.
Forgive me I'm falling down to your level on posts.
My point was that I'm sure the finance people at the club including the owner are well aware of how much the squad is costing in wages and your right it can't go on but as I see it the owner is making a push to get in those playoffs. We should be glad of his support.
Re my opinion re the first 2 games. We were poor can't say more than that but its 2 games out of 46. Playing squad will settle i'm sure and I still think we will be in play offs. Maybe last season we peaked too soon so we are adopting a peak at the end stratergy
I'm always an optimist in life and my team.

22 Sep 2020 16:21:54
Nothing wrong with being an optimist, the realist in me says this is now a prolonged decline and needs to stol soon . If it does by the way I’ll be over the moon. I said all through august he deserves another bash but I’ve been very surprised and disappointed in the first 3 performances .

22 Sep 2020 17:31:28
2 star Ill be happy too but i'm clinging to the fact we missed play offs by a thread and in all honesty a blessing as we weren't going to beat anyone. That is an improvement and I honestly think once the new squad gells we will be in play offs again. We have lost 2 games and played badly but again being positive every year teams put runs together in Jan and make play offs so 2 defeats aren't going to cause me a melt down.
