I am afraid Montanier will be gone by end of October unless he starts to turn things round. Our owner is a man with no patience, no CEO, no FD and no idea!

The sooner he sells the club the better. Let's hope it is soon.

Tuesday showed us just how far we have dropped. We are a million miles from the Premiership and we were probably half a million miles away when he bought the club for a knockdown price from Mrs Doughty.

We have gone backwards off the pitch and on the pitch over the last 4 disastrous years of Al Hasawi ownership.

I like PM and think he has brought in some great players with very little money. Give him time and he will sort out the defence because that is all that is missing. Be shocking to see him go, totally unjustified. COYR'S.

Here we go again. I give up I just give up. Just stick together as a club.

Nothing wrong with Montanier in my view. Needs time. Lichaj needs to pick his game up and stop wandering all over the pitch. Mills needs to be aware where the opponent is in and around the box. and to hoof the ball out of defence when under pressure instead of trying to play it out. Pereira (spelling? ) needs to be played on the flank. Benny needs to takle more (and play to the whistle, not wait around for a foul being given when the opposition have buggered off down the pitch to score) . Kasami was lost yesterday against Weds, worst game for us.
I am sure we'll get there.

PM is definitely a good manager and made some frugal acquisitions, he's still sorting his best 11 so we (including Fawaz) need to be patient. To say he'll be gone by end of Oct is crazy.

Our new signings are still finding their feet but admit it is frustrating to lose from a winning position again. Looking forwards to Hobbs, Vaughn and Britt being available again.

Keep going PM, enjoying an attacking brand of footy.

Agree4 Disagree0

25 Sep 2016 10:35:46
May I just point out that the Arsenal starting XI on Tuesday cost them £95m, our starting XI cost £2.4m (give or take a few quid) . Are we really criticising Fawaz for the widening budget between Champions League and Football League over the last 10 years?

We have wasted some money, for example the Algerian lads, he has appointed and sacked some rubbish managers and we don't pay our bills on time. all fair! But the fact that a team can change 11 players and still turn out a side that's worth more than 2/ 3 of the squads in the Championship combined isn't his fault!

Despite coming out of the embargo we still aren't good enough to go up. If we'd kept Burke and had Assombalonga fit then maybe.

Agree1 Disagree1

25 Sep 2016 14:19:24
Are we a million miles from the premier league? I'm not so sure. We are a million miles from teams like Arsenal but if we achieved promotion we wouldn't be competing with teams like them (and that Arsenal team would have hammered most in the championship) Our competitors would be in the bottom half.

Our first half performance against recently relegated Norwich was encouraging. We more than held our own against them, it was only in the second half their quality shone through. And this is a good indication as to where we are.

Yes we have some player issues and everyone on here has slightly different opinions to what they are but that's football. Overall I am happy with our start and with PM. After last season it is refreshing to see some attacking football and even though we are going to lose a few this year I feel optimistic about each game. An optimism that was eroded by this time last season.

Good post that ginger.

Reference Mills most teams he's played for have been poor at the back.

We should play with wing backs with mancienne, perquis and Hobbs.

Agree ludicrous to say PM will be gone soon but his constant rotation of the back four is becoming frustrating and making him look a bit of a Baffoon - which is isn't.

He's had enough to time to settle this back four quandary, time it was settled now as settling should help us to progress.

Can someone confirm The time frame of Britts injury. I have been told today it's up to 6 weeks.

6 weeks! Was it his hamstring against Burton?

21 Sep 2016 09:51:22
Don't think it will be that long. Whether it's his hamstring or his calf, no point bringing him back until he's completely clear of the injury.

Agree4 Disagree0

21 Sep 2016 10:11:55
Yeah I just think they are wrapping our start player in cotton wool and making sure he is completely clear of the injury before risking him. Common sense I think as Brit could be the difference between playoffs or not.

The team have proved that it's not scoring goals we need to worry about, it's stopping the ball from going in the net. Until our defensive frailties are sorted out we're going nowhere.

That's what's great about Red supporters, nick26, give up on the season while we're not yet out of September.

Give up no. Be a realist, yes.

22 Sep 2016 11:57:14
Im with nick26, a play off prediction for this season is verging on comical.

Balance the books with a midtable finish will be an achievement in itself. We'll bully a few of the lesser clubs but there's a fair few better sides than us in this league.

Just a little snipit from yesterday.
The American consortium is led by Brad Friedel and He was at the ground last week. so with luck this will be going ahead soon.

Must of made a lot of money in the last 5years. was made bankrupt 5years ago.

So with any luck we will have someone joint in charge that has made some cracking decisions that led him to be made bankrupt.

Like Fawaz It does not have to be his money He may just be advising the Americans,

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Sep 2016 17:06:08
Not true. Friedel was there with the USA under 19's on a tour of the ground.

Agree2 Disagree1

18 Sep 2016 17:18:31
Fawaz wasn't in a consortium. brad would be having to put money in like the rest of them, weather it be from a company he has links with or himself. his net worth couldn't run the club for a month. not much of a partnership if brad is advising and the others are putting the money in. they could do that without him.

Agree1 Disagree2

18 Sep 2016 19:37:26
Fawaz was in a consortium with the rest of his Family.
His brother pulled out about six weeks in because He could not see it working and the rest of his family backed him until recently when they pulled the plug on spending any mone money because they could only see the debt racking up and that's why He needs investment.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Sep 2016 20:06:28
If Friedel is part of the consortium it will only be as the face for presentation purposes.

Pure because he is repected for his achievements as a footballer.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Sep 2016 16:51:42
1978 i here you but i thought the family pulled the younger brother out because he was making a pigs ear of it, not paying debts and players not being paid?

Being reported that Derby, Swansea and Forest interested in free agent Martin Careces central midfielder who can also play at fullback, 69 caps for Uraguay very tenacious just what we need to shore up our leaky defense, and only 29.

Bye bye Hobbs if so.

17 Sep 2016 07:57:22
No thanks. Had too many serious injuries; not played since being injured in January. 29 is still too old.

We should be looking for players who are on an upward trajectory, not downward.

Rumours that chelski were interested so clearly has some quality 29 too old? give over we need a good mix of youth and experience Pretty sure PP would be familiar with his quality due to his time at juventus so we will see .

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Sep 2016 13:16:58
I have to disagree. I can't see his age being an issue at 29.Any good team will have a mixture young and older players as experience can be invaluable. I don't know about his injury history though as that could be an issue at forest.

Agree4 Disagree0

17 Sep 2016 22:03:56
I agree we should have a mix of youth and experience. But we should be buying mostly younger players who will improve and can be sold at a profit after a few years. E. g Antonio.

Caceres would be another Traore; less than ten starts a season. What's the point of bringing in someone like that.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Sep 2016 19:16:08
So as we are strapped for Cash for 3 months we have gone and got a Grant.

Traore is playing tonight.

11 Sep 2016 10:16:19
Forgive me if I'm been a bit slow here but why would Fawaz sell the club for 40m when he says he has put in over 100m? I know about cutting your losses but can't imagine for a second he would go that far?

Believable7 Unbelievable4

11 Sep 2016 12:56:22
Why would he sell now when this season we may actually have a chance of going up then he can recoup all of the money he's put in.

Agree0 Disagree8

11 Sep 2016 13:15:24
40 mill gor the club but you inherit 100mil debt.

Agree3 Disagree1

11 Sep 2016 13:17:23
Chance of promotion?

You see that already?

Something different is on the cards for sure but have you honestly seen levels of performance against a range of different opposition to predict we can be in with a shout of promotion.

If we are getting these results by early November expectations should rise.

At the moment we could just enjoy seeing where a different approach at the club takes us instead of the same path we've trod for many years.

Agree2 Disagree0

12 Sep 2016 11:04:27
If he can sell the club for £40 million He would have to wright off 60 million and that would get him out of Nottingham forest otherwise He will either have to run the club down and still end up loosing money or take a loss of 100 million and give it away, taking a 60 million loss is his best option.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Sep 2016 13:03:48
Very surprised he didn't cash in on other players in the summer before running away! Then again, maybe none of the offers were cash up front so wouldn't have been in his best interest.

I can't see him walking away clean tho, and £40m is way off what he values the club at so wouldn't be shocked to see him keep a role and percentage at the club, promotion over the next few years, even at 20% could see him pocket £50m, on top of the £40m from Americans and the player sales, he'll be up.

Agree1 Disagree1

12 Sep 2016 19:50:02
Agreed 2 tone, still very early in the season, Villa match really worried me, hope we can improve as the Season progresses.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Sep 2016 20:27:32
Rogie Red

We got beat 3-0 against Brighton, but could have been six or seven.

We got a fighting draw at Villa, we have players that are expected back soon that would most likely be in the starting line-up when match fit.

All very promising to me.

All hail Phillipe :-)

Agree1 Disagree1

12 Sep 2016 21:19:22
Mystic you have to realise in Kuwait culture it would be thought bad to made bankrupt and not pay your debts, but if you sell your business for a loss and move to something else that is regarded as quite acceptable.

£40 million back in the pot.

So we get a new owner, sounds great. FAH has got faults.

But let's be honest half the mistakes are driven by his own unrealistic perceptions of NFFC and what he'd brought.

Many on here will criticise any new owner because you honestly think we are more than a mid table championship team.

Worst still some believe he has taken us backwards and that we were more than a mid table championship.

Funny how no one can remember the debacle of mcclown, the sale of our best players to survive and the escape from league one mainly due to a points dedection from Portsmouth.

Shame the money FAH has put in has been wasted as we've missed a chance to move forward with his money.

Who do you honestly think would invest more? We don't have the income to enable us to spend like some fans think we should.

Forest fans are deluded and recall times that never actually happened. In our last premier league season we got an average of 25,000 at home. We're not the club many think we are.

It prevents enjoying what we are and celebrating success. For example we didn't celebrate the playoffs as a success we saw it as a failure, that's bizarre in my view and that is the mentality that drives a large % of the fanbase. We felt we had a divine right to be promoted because we think we are better and bigger than we are.

Change the expectation bar and suddenly being a forest fan seems appealing again. Expect 30,000 a week, premier league football and millions spent on players then you will be disappointed irrespective of the owner as that isn't what we are and it never has been.

Owner after owner has failed to deliver the expectations of some of our fans, so there is a common denominator.

Gone backwards under him? Do me a favour.

This is all based on an article in one paper. No one has actually come forward and said it's true. The way Fawaz was talking (today the Americans yesterday the Greeks and tomorrow maybe the Chinese ) this suggests that it's all paper talk.
Don't put to much store in that article.
