Saw Patrick Bamford parking his range rover in main stand car park before today's game. Must have been impressed with what he saw. If he came to us I don't know how he'd get in our team at the moment as we are on fire up front. COYR

That's good to hear. If Tesch looks the part its time to settle down to work with a nice tight squad where everyone has a role. I say we have enough players now unless a fantastic opportunity to sign someone special comes along.

I'd prefer a fuly fit Dexter Blackstock to Patrick Bamford every day.

You're right we don't want to develop Chelsea's Bamford at the expense of our own Tyler Walker. No point having our own academy if we don't have a path to the first team

Forest don't need him we could of done with him last season, this season NFFC is a totally different team/squad. In my humble opinion he ain't good enough for us any more the players SP and FAH have bought into the club have moved us forward massively. COYR:-)

Forest have appointed Kevin MacDonald, the former Aston Villa under-21 manager, to their coaching staff.

The Scotsman, who has been working behind the scenes at the club all summer and led the recent training camp in Valencia, will coach the club's under-18 side.

I watched my local team underwood villa play forest u18 in a friendly at bracken park underwood in July. The forest squad were coached by Steve Sutton Kevin McDonald and jack lester, Nigel jemson was also with them but I think his lad was playing for forest as a trialist so probably just watching rather than being involved. Incidentally forest were awesome, winning 12-1 whilst playing with ten men to try to balance it up a bit!

Think McDonald would have been better employed with the under 21's. Not sure about Gilligan's. Am I right in saying that Gilligan has in the past been part of Forest's coaching staff.

If Blackstock is expected to recover then we won't need Bamford. Blackstock is proven at this level (don't forget he was given a four year contract and was on form not so long ago).

Is it just me or do some reds have a short memory. Blackstock is a great third/fourth choice striker at this level. what is the point developing players for other teams when we can increase the value of our own. We have Tyler Walker too. OIf we bring in Bamford and Blackstock is fit how will youth ever get the experience?

Blackstock hasn't played for the best part of 4 years, we all respect dex but well leave it to Pearce to judge whether or he's good enough or not. Don't forget he didn't look interested after he got his big deal so before criticising people look at the facts. And take everything into consideration.

Securing Lansbury is our best bit of business so far in my opinion. Closely, and I do mean closely, followed by Burke, Antonio and Assombalonga in equal joint second place.

With everyone fit, I think SP will have a headache he'll like having in trying to choose a starting XI. The way I see it, it's a very strong and competitive squad.

Dex not played for the best part of 4 years!? He's played nearly 100 games in the last 4 years lol His last appearance was in November 2013, only 9-months ago- 4-years!? : /

I think Dex should be given the chance to regain fitness and become part of the squad again. He's more than good enough to be 4th choice. Perhaps with a new manager, new playing style and new opportunity we can see him contribute again. If not, get him fit and move him on.

I tend to agree with a lot of what Red Cyclist has said. Good post.

"Henri Lansbury is a Red, he hates Derby"

SteveSuttonsWonkyEye

Great news but beware!
His agent stated that there was no way he was signing another contract so expect a buy out clause in the contract. As soon as he starts performing again his buyout value will start getting hawked around in January!
Hopefully we will be 10 points clear in Jan and he will have Premiership football nailed on next year.

Every time I hear we have offered a big contract I worry.

Blackstock (4 years on good money): Injured.

Abdoun (allegedly £25K/week): Personality defect (allegedly lol)

Hobbs: Injured immediately and hardly played last season

Reid (contract extension): Injured (almost immediately)

Wilson (champions league wages?): Hardly played for us.

Anyone notice a pattern?

Exactly Gomez, If Fawaz is fed up with spending money on players who rarely play surely he can afford a new pen. Poison ink or what?

I'm not sure whether Fawaz or Lansbury should be worried about the consequences of signing. Hopefully the curse is lifted but you can't help biting your nails when you look at our recent history.

Why all the skepticism. Lansbury and Hobbs are still 2 of our best players even with all the signings. One has signed a contract today to stay at our club the other isn't leaving according to our boss. So this is a day to be upbeat.
Let our poor relations down Brian Clough way have all the negativity why we have a beer to celebrate our superiority!

He's done nothing to impress on other " loan outs " so not fussed about any potential arrival. Also nearly all other signings to date have been completely off the radar so now taking ITK rumours with a pinch of salt. SP keeps his cards close to his chest!

If Carroll is a DM and SP is looking at him. Why sign the player from Germany who is also a DM?

Jaj

If he is going to be on £25k per week that's £1.3m per year. How much would we have to pay to replace him?
Football finances are like monopoly, totally unrelated to real life, but in the context of crazy football money, that's £1.3m very well spent. If he has a key role in getting us promoted then that's a £100m+ Coming our way next season. Great move all round and shows our ambition as a club.

I notice a pattern obviously, but it's just a pattern of unfortunate events that occurred.

Plus, every player mentioned there is in full training/starting eleven, apart from abdoun obviously

SaintsRed

Ed034{Ed034's Note - he's a DM who will not win you games, but will allow the more attacking players to do what they do best.

Hi Ed,

Just been speaking to a QPR friend of mine and they were glad to see the back of him as he brought nothing to the team. 22 years old and apparently not improving at all so in my opinion we have better at the club already.

Red_Dog Red_Dog

Ed034{Ed034's Note - have heard the same but he is well thought of, so I would think he's one of those players who does the boring stuff, which fans don't like seeing.
pearce obviously knows what he can bring, if anything and if he thinks he'll be an asset then he'll bring him in

(0)
(0)

I wouldn't say he is a DM, perhaps a deep-lying playmaker but not really a defensive-minded player.

He's like a poor-mans, latter-day, Paul Scholes. Decent ability and range of passing but not enough clinical end product. He's not far off being Tom Cleverley, to be honest!

You never know, these slow-paced, Pirlo-esque players sometimes take a bit longer to mature and impose themselves but I agree that on most of the viewings I've seen of him he doesn't do enough.

SteveSuttonsWonkyEye

If he is being mentioned In a thread along with a poor man's Pirlo Scholes or Cleverley then wouldn't be a bad squad player. It is clear that we need depth In the holding midfield rile and I am sure SP can bring the best from him.

"He's not far off Cleverly".

So pretty useless then. Really irritates me that so many English players fear losing the ball so mich they just square ball.

NEP reporting agreement with Faulkner to become CEO great news if true

1978

Why would it be so good just looked at his name on G web pages, he doesn't come across well?

Sirsteveofmapperley

Ed034{Ed034's Note - looking at the wrong pages. He's was villa favs focal point, as they were not happy with either the team nor the owner. He did a good job, the manager was sad to see him go and is hugely respected within the game.

(1)
(2)

The Villa fans suspected it was Faulkner that chose their managers, that's the main reason they aimed their anger at him. It sounds like he was just the fall guy when things weren't going well, but it was the owner who made the appointments. He seems like a great choice IMO will get things running smoothly, another piece of the jigsaw that is NFFC in place.

GawdenBennett GawdenBennett

Ed034{Ed034's Note - that's exactly what he was. the owner chose the manager and the ceo was involved. the relationship Faulkner has with the manager, owner and people within football is what is important and I cannot see a bad word against him

I know we're in desperate need of a CEO and I would probably take anyone but does anybody know much about Faulkner. Is there anything much he did at Villa which makes him a good candidate? Why did he leave? I'll happily accept him whatever happens, as if he's good enough for an established premier league club he is surely good enough for us. Just wanted to find out a bit more if anyone has any information.

radi majewski

Ed034{Ed034's Note - respected by the vast majority of people who have met and spoken to him. did a good job under difficult circumstances at villa, where a small section of fans, for some bizarre reason, decided it was his fault the team and manager weren't doing as well as they'd hoped. did everything right at villa and is the stand out candidate for me, as I have said numerous times before

This was posted on a site relating to Villa as they try to get the guy from Arsenal called Tom Fox. "Faulkner left his position last month and could now be installed at Nottingham Forest after he was spotted at their match against Bournemouth last night. and
"Although Lerner and Faulkner have worked closely together for many years, with the latter involved in a variety of roles in the former’s many businesses, the two have now gone their separate ways. It follows a failure to reach an agreement on Faulkner’s future as the club claim, via a statement, he had hoped to “re-engage with Lerner’s broader business while remaining involved with Villa in a non-operational role”.

Apparently we are still picking up Mackies wage untill their new owners get through the FA approaval process.

Reading are in pretty much the same situation we were a couple of seasons ago. Even if they're interested, I very much doubt SP would even consider him leaving, or that he himself would want to leave. Quite excited by the Hobbs/ Manciennce combination at centre back

I think that if as is rumoured that henri signs a new contract then sp is covered in midfield now and if anything would be looking at Bamford. I don't see any other positions that need cover.

That depends on how good this German is. because even with Lansbury Reid Vaughen we still needed cover in centre mid.
Season ant started and Vaughen injured again.
Maybe we get by with German and Cohen versatility.

Centre midfield is Vaughan, lansbury, Cohen, ried, the German, so centre midfield is covered. Plenty of defenders, only got 3 strikers in the team at the moment, so need cover, will blackstock come back? If so is he in sp plans, if he is That makes the 4 strikers need.

How fickle we are! When his move to BFC looked done and dusted he got a fair bit of abuse which I couldn't work out?
People were saying stuff like "we've got better players in now" & "he's not bigger than the club" one poster even said summat like "think we should just sell him now because they were sick of all the rumours about him"
I've also had to defend Dex On here too I just can't get my head round it?
So Henri has needed time to mull over a move to a prem club- that brings with it massive changes not just to him but any family relocate too, etc etc
Fact is he's one of us even if he thought through a new job offer let's get behind ALL the lads like Pearce himself said - our strength has always been us all (from tea lady to him and Fawaz) pulling together for the good of Nottingham Forest.
Let's do that eh? Things like this are all part of the ride let's cling on and enjoy!
Up the football league we go!

Only thing Henris mulled over is an old contract offer. He didn't get a choice whether he wanted to go to burnley or not because we refused the bid.

By the looks of it he held out for more money which he has been offered. I wouldn't say people are too fickle at all we were united in saying that if he doesn't want to be here ie sign a new contract then let him go. The balls in his court now.

I hope he signs his new contract because he is a great player but the players need to unite and show their commitment to the club too.

Sadly the days of player like pearce being LOYAL to the club for 12 years no mater who comes in for them are long gone, its not about people being fickle NOTTS LOYAL its just they want the players to love the club as much as they do then when you hear they are holding the club to ransom it don't go down too well, I like lansbury & think he is a very good player but I just hope if he gets his new contract he repays the club with some class on the pitch, that's why people got on blackstocks back when he got his 4 year deal the goals stopped

SP wanting to get Nick Powell in on a season long loan with a view to permanent. As given HL until midweek to make his mind up about new contract or leave. To be honest wouldn't be sad to see him go now, fed up with the whole issue. Injury prone anyway and Powell looks a better long term prospect.

Bamford did really well in a decent sheep team last season; he should therefore be even better in a verey good Forest side. The point though is, do we need him? Will he make us a better team like he did the sheep? Would he want to come to back just because he came to watch us?

An ideal situation would be for Henri to sign a one year extension. If we don't go up this year he should get a release clause in that contract in the region of 5million (i think wed be happy to get that). I think Nick Powell on loan would then be the perfect replacement. Just want to say also that I've been following this site for a long time, great work ED ( my girlfriend hates the fact that its usually the first thing I check in the morning!)

Fingers crossed Lansbury signs up. Sick of reading all these itk journos saying he wants out and has refused to look at a contract.

Which is what all these journos are giving the impression he has done

Looks like a fairly solid signing to me, fair bit of experience, should link up well with Mancienne. One year deal to see how he adapts to English football. Would he be the replacement for Vaughan when he's injured/out of fitness? or would they be fighting for position.

This new signing front Hamburg seems to be a good player. However if he is so good why did Hamburg not offer him a new contract, especially as he helped them stave off relegation. Also when did SP and his staff see him play, or has he been on trial at the club, or does he come on the approval of MM who we also signed from Hamburg.
I am not being negative but would just like to know how this transfer came about.
Also as of yet I have made no comment in relation to the HL saga, but would say if he wants to go let him, and move on. He does have problems with injuries and bookings, and this is something we do not need this season.

Every summer after the league cup game forest have a tradition of putting all the free agents names in a hat and picking one out that we sign. Last season it was jara after Hartlepool game, season before it was gillet and year before that it was George boateng! I remember in 06/07 we signed junior agogo after losing 1-0 to accrington stanley. Who are they? I know this because before they pick the player out the hat, they get me in to predict who I think it will be and read people their stars.
