I meant to put this on the banter page not rumour. my mistake.

According to NEP Phil Parkinson at Bradford is another manager in the frame for Forest, where and when will the speculations end, come on Fawaz put us out of out misery one way or another😎.

Maybe it's not up to fawaz who is manager. if it's a bad name he will get the flack if it's a decent name it will be the new investors choice and a good one.

You want to blame the football league for our owners, and managers mistakes.
So what is the difference?
What are the stats on you accepting that.

Agree0 Disagree2

24 May 2016 19:09:22
I want to blame the football league? i don't get what you mean.

Agree0 Disagree2

24 May 2016 22:05:04
Now I get what you mean as iv just read that mind blowing post you made that was totally irrelevant as to what I was saying. people are moaning about no news coming out the club regards to a new owner/ investor, new manager and signings. whilst the deal is on the football leagues table there won't be any news as thenew investor will want his say but whilst the deal hasn't been signed off by the football league nothing will be done.

First time posting, a friend of mine played in a charity game yesterday at Chesterfield FC, Neil Warnock told Jack Lester he will not be taking the Forest job because he wouldn't be able to pick the team.

Believable3 Unbelievable16

23 May 2016 21:00:15
Did the conversation go like this.

Fawaz: Sit down Neil, Would you manage my team of players on a nice contract?

Neal: Let me think.

Fawaz: Well Neal, just turn up give um a quick jog round, play 5 a side for a bit. And I will even pick the team for you. Easy money Neal, nice contract and the new invester as agreed this to already as well. He's well impressed with my team selections on Fifa.

Neal: You mean you'd pay me but do my job for me, I'd be the fall guy on a good screw and get a nice payoff for my retirement?

Fawaz: yeah that's right.

Neal: No,

Agree2 Disagree2

23 May 2016 21:36:46
Did he say if Fawaz would only get to choose three players per game once the investment deal went through?

Agree1 Disagree1

23 May 2016 21:59:55
Will you give it a rest. Fawaz does not, has not, never will pick the team. If you put £60m into a football club and was paying your manager £750,000 per year would you not, like all supporters - including you - have a view on who should and shouldn't play. He is entitled to an opinion.

Agree10 Disagree0

23 May 2016 22:08:06
Lol. are you saying the new owner/ investor will be picking the team then? maybe they will share it out between the season ticket holders over the next year, maybe we all get to send a list in of players we would like and the new owner will go and get the top 5 most popular.

Agree0 Disagree1

23 May 2016 22:09:14
Took the words out of my mouth skipper!

Agree3 Disagree0

24 May 2016 05:36:26
My post was sarcasm to the original poster by the way.
As if Fawaz picks the team.
For flips sake lay of the bloke that saved our club. Got us Assombalonga and Antonio and then had a embargo slapped on his team.
Get behind our club .

Agree4 Disagree0

24 May 2016 09:57:33
You don't know if Fawaz picks the team or not!

You have no idea and there is plenty of evidence to suggest he has a very large influence.

He may not put names on paper he certainly makes his opinion known and expects to be listened to.

You have no idea what's going on so should keep such assumptions to yourself.

Agree1 Disagree6

24 May 2016 10:08:48
I find this all rather amusing as most people on this forum spend time each week picking the team! Does the manager listen though?

Every manager has to do a regular performance review to the board and owner and this will include justifying his team selections.

If we had a fit £10m striker sat on the bench everyone would want to know why he was not in the team?

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 11:55:19
And you also have no idea no22 so how can you tell us what's what?

Agree3 Disagree0

24 May 2016 12:18:51
lol Up the Forest, he (22) is always ramming his assumptions down peoples throats so he should take on his own advice for sure:)

How did the numbers go again:)

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2016 12:35:40
There's a lot more evidence to suggest he doesn't pick the teams.

Agree2 Disagree0

24 May 2016 12:43:09
How do you know no 22? Big diffence between "evidence" and "suggests"like another posts have said "give it a rest". and "lay off the guy! ". 😠😠😠.

Oh please Ginger Kid!? Not that all over again! Lol! 😂😂😂.

Bring back Abdoun, he definatly picked him!

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 16:00:05
Ok, just one last time Rogie.

If Fawaz has two apples and then he borrows 3 pickles, then the train is travelling east at 33mph:)

{Ed033's Note - erm, 42

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 16:14:35
What's the problem no.22? Thought this was a rumour and opinion site?

{Ed033's Note - No. 6 wants to escape.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 17:35:24
I swear my dad met Fawaz on a train last season and they spoke about Forest and Fawaz asked who he would start out of Wilson and Hobbs with Mills and he said he thought Hobbs was better, and the next week Hobbs was playing haha! Just a coincidence I guess ;)

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 18:00:19
That's were I went wrong Ginger Kid! I had the train traveling west! "Doh! "

Reports suggest Forest are to appoint a Spanish Director of Football called Juan Jose Lorenzo (he has connections with the alleged Greek new major shareholder) . Can't see experienced British managers working under such a regime.

Believable3 Unbelievable1

23 May 2016 15:40:02
Probably saw the name Jose and thought he must be good.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 15:43:05
Why Not?

23 May 2016 16:31:53

23 May 2016 18:19:40
Apparently he was part of the technical department at Real Madrid. Might be a good appointment.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 May 2016 18:33:04
Weve tried the scottish route and that didn't work and no british manager wwill touch us so its looking like the foreign flair route is the way to go.

Agree2 Disagree0

23 May 2016 19:08:32
Bout time we looked at a structure in the club
It's the only way we will progress so let's hope it all goes through.

Pearson and di metto both interviewed by villa and a deceision by the weekend apparently.

So you have given up on :

Being reported in a red top tabloid this morning that head of scouting at Olympiakos Juan Jose Lorenzo is set to be appointed Forests new technical director.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

22 May 2016 12:15:04
Should have appointed one when we started on the downward slope of mcleash and others. You need someone to bring inn the unearhed diamonds like pinillos etc.

22 May 2016 10:11:06
Interested in charltons Scottish striker Tony watt
Clubs include: charlton standard liege lierrse Blackburn
Total apps: 122
Total goals: 31
Age: 22
Scotland assistant manager says his attitudes stinks
He also demands a very high pay packet believe he was one of the best at charlton.

22 May 2016 10:23:12
I wondered what he did after playing Lofty in Eastenders and thought he was older then 22.

{Ed001's Note - hahaha I know him well, but it is Tom. Very nice guy who does a lot of writing now and presenting sports shows etc. Judging by his profile pic he is still using one from when he was 22 so maybe that is where the error came from....}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2016 12:03:56
Does he still follow the gooners Ed?

{Ed001's Note - yes mate.}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2016 12:49:28
Tony watt is 22 guys.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2016 13:37:18
Yeah mate just a bit of banter involving Lofty. Lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2016 22:14:40
There will be more banter if we do get tony and he bags a few.
You can see it now on SSN

made me laugh last season.

Warnock been on Talksport this morning and confirmed he's meeting with Fawaz this weekend.

Believable10 Unbelievable3

21 May 2016 12:21:41
Please no! 😢😢😢.

Agree0 Disagree8

21 May 2016 12:22:08
Interesting that he would entertain a meeting with Fawaz after turning the job down before. Maybe being out of the embargo and the situation with the possible investment might tip the balance.
He has a knack of getting clubs promoted so would be a good appointment if he gets it.

Agree4 Disagree1

21 May 2016 12:22:30
Can't quite understand why he is in the running, he had turned us down before and I thought he wanted to retire?

Agree4 Disagree1

21 May 2016 13:00:04
Why wouldn't he be interested? Like many have been saying it's like a big pay day for half a season if he doesn't do well n if he gets playoffs or promotion happy days win win 😃💷.

Agree1 Disagree1

21 May 2016 14:05:01
oj71 why please no? If we are looking for the manager with experience and takes no nonsense then Warnock has to be right up there. Most of the names being banded about are laughable.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 May 2016 16:09:28
Forest 1985, you probably hit the nail on the head👍
He won't take interference from Fawaz, I would expect it to end in tears with a big pay off.

What a farce our club has become, when once we could attract top managerial applications we are now sifting through the dregs and also rans, yesterday's men.

When do we know what players are being released?

And just look at all the players being released by other clubs, surely some of these could do a very decent job for us. The longer this goes on for the longer next season is put in jeopardy.

Agree4 Disagree3

21 May 2016 16:16:03
Like many others I used to detest Warlock! But you can't argue with his track record. May amaze us all by being the manager we really didn't want that's the one that finally gets us promoted!

Agree1 Disagree0

21 May 2016 16:27:41
Please yes.

Please no just shows how many of our fans still think we're something we are not!

Ever heard of the saying 'cars on drive nowt in fridge'

That is the route of our problems for years now.

Accept who we are, what we are where we are and we will be what should be.

Agree7 Disagree0

21 May 2016 16:30:23
nick26 he says he only wants one more season then he will retire where does that leave us if we get promotion or not we are managerless again, he has also badmouthed us, turned us down, so now he wants to manage us WHY (£££) . I think we should go for one of the foreign named in the last couple of week, let's have some sexy football at CG😎😎😎.

Agree2 Disagree2

21 May 2016 16:49:20
If warnock did get us promoted the new owner/ investor would probably want a more high profile manager anyway as warnock couldn't cut it in the prem.

Agree3 Disagree1

21 May 2016 18:02:15
He said he had one more team left in him when he left sheffield, since then he has managed at least 3 clubs, the bloke just keeps going on (especially with his lies ) so best not believe him and i for one do not trust him, would rather have platt back the him

Agree0 Disagree7

21 May 2016 19:27:31
Could be the director of football that's being talked about.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2016 19:59:08
Garcia with Warnock as director of football. Arabs respect seniority. It could work well with Fawaz.

We need a coach who wants to play sexy Football.

Agree1 Disagree2

22 May 2016 02:23:29
He is a very dodgy bloke, wudnt trust warnock as far as could throw him. He looking for a nice pension payoff from Fawaz.

Lets get someone in that is going to build a team in the next three years.

Agree1 Disagree1

22 May 2016 07:31:46
I'm not a fan of warnock but with this set of players he could do a billy and get into the playoffs after watching us have a poor season this time.

Agree1 Disagree1

22 May 2016 07:59:22
It's not sexy football that gets results in the Championship. It's a manager with nouse and players that need to give their all for 46 tough games. Sexy football wins you nothing unless you're as good as Barcelona or Bayern.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 May 2016 11:28:25
Or Bournemouth.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2016 12:19:31
Or burnley, boro and sheff wed or hull they all play fancy football don't they?

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2016 20:06:20
Get real please. If we want to make a push for the top 6 which forest are nowhere near at the stage of doing with current squad or structure you don't have to play sexy football and personally I would just love to get there any how without picking and choosing how we do it 🌳 Let's get ourselves down to CG in droves and make it 🔥Electric 🔴.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 01:02:11
Warnock is just another sticking plaster. Loves the sound of his own voice has a even chance of matching SP's DF's unbeaten run before he gets found yet again as the wheels come off.

Well past his sell by date having his last promotion with QPR in 2011.

He only gets jobs by being bigged up on a certain radio station when unemployed.

Hopefully he is taking up his interview invite to up his pension pot for the Blackburn job?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2016 10:10:21
Fawaz has been told by family there is no more money for his hobby and if he wants to continue needs to find investment. Tie up with greeks is a front to get round ffp rules by 'borrowing' players like the pozzo family do at watford.

Believable2 Unbelievable6

21 May 2016 13:12:27
Should not be looking at warnock he is too old and has only actually got one team promoted from it since 2005/ 06 and the league has moved on a lot since then at the top. Still should go flat out for Pearson or go abroad 🌳.

Agree2 Disagree1

21 May 2016 14:00:37
Rooster21 you are spot on with this one. I'm glad I'm not the only one who can see the connection.
A good friend of mine gave me chapter and verse regarding Watford and Udinese at the Watford v Newcastle game last week end and he told me the two teams swopped players instead of keep dipping into the transfer market.
When I told him about the Greek connection he could see the similarity straight away. I think Fawaz is on to something here.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 May 2016 16:38:18
Have another look Hereford - did he not get QPR promoted?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2016 16:46:41
The rules changed after what Watford did and you can only borrow 2 or three players from the same club so won't really make that much difference, not like we can have a team full of them.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 May 2016 19:37:32
2star yes in 2011-12 I believe. That's why I said only 1 team since then (QPR) . 2005/ 06 was Sheffield United. 🌳.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2016 00:07:47
Ah yes sorry mate didn't read your post properly.

Forest v Blackburn in the chase for warnock. he's not foreign is he?
That's the rumour doing the rounds today.

Believable2 Unbelievable3

21 May 2016 09:00:25
If he did come what would the odds be on his first signing being paddy kenny?

Agree1 Disagree4

21 May 2016 09:54:40
Why would we want a manager who says he wants just 1 more season in management? ?
We need to look at a manager for the long run.
It's a no from me .

Agree2 Disagree1

21 May 2016 09:55:22
I guess we are going to be linked with everyone at the mo, especially in the press. Rumour from Rovers is Warnock isn't on their list as he wants a last big job - can't see that being us.

Agree0 Disagree1

21 May 2016 10:18:54
He wants one more promotion. one last job to say he's still got it. on that rule he wouldn't be right for anyone. he don't cut it at a higher level so it would be ideal for him to get a promotion and then retire.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2016 12:25:59
Could do with Paddy to check the pie quality in our catering facilities.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2016 13:45:38
I would love warnock to come to forest. He will organise and get us playing. Proven winner at this level. Nobody knows the championship better. Wbo cares if its one season? Get us up then worry about a new manager. But i bet if he gets us up he will stay on.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2016 16:46:56
Irrespective of how poor a season you have in the championship anyone get become promotion material the following season.

Many have players good enough to go up, a few have a manager with the wear withal to make it a reality.

It only takes a season to get promoted.

Perfect fit he wants one more season, he's more than capable of getting promoted. We wouldn't want him beyond that.

Works for me.

He took the job last time then u turned when fawaz asked him to repatriate abdoun into the 1st team.

He's always wanted the forest job and has a passion and commitment for the city and its clubs. He more than most of the others mentioned (that are realistic anyway) has a genuine desire to resuscitate NFFC and would relish doing so. I'd back this, back him and buy a season ticket tomorrow . I just hope the masses create the right tipping point and follow suit.

Agree3 Disagree0

22 May 2016 21:23:17
Not a supporter of appointing warnock but I am a supporter of forest so would obviously be thrilled to support any manager with such passion and his regime. Personally however would still bust at gut for NIgel Pearson 🌳.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2016 21:38:41
He'd be my first choice too but I think something slightly more appealing will snare Pearson.

Agree0 Disagree0
