Forest interested in swp at qpr. Could be good bit of business if he's willing to take pay cut on wages.

I don't think this is true for so many reasons.

Firstly, SWP goes against the kind of squad SP and Fawaz appear to be putting together.

Secondly, SWP doesn't have anything to offer these days that we don't already have.

Thirdly, wage demands would be too high.

Fourthly, much better and hungrier talent out there such as Matt Ritchie and Craig Noone

Agree with both above. ESP Craig noone, would be great signing. Also defo would consider scott sinclair. Bit forgot now, but with something to prove. IMO a excellent signing. COYR

I disagree he, was a cracking player, I think SP will make exeptions for older players he's already showed he will look to bring in players young and old if he thinks they can do a job, having said that I do feel there are better out there.

Why would Cardiff sell Noone? Especially to a promotion rival. Solskjaer rates him very highly. We missed the boat with the best option and that was Lloyd Dyer.

Doesn't have anything we don't already?apart from being as fast as a greyhound.
If he took a massive pay cut he would be a very good sub to bring on late. isn't noone injured?

{Ed034's Note - is he that fast anymore??

Skits around quickly with the odd ambitious shot on goal. Has been in the wilderness for too long. A poor mans Townsend or Lennon. Think Patinho looks brighter to me and the young Portuguese lad by all accounts. Not for us I hope.

Buckley at Brighton for me, is Burke still available on a free? McCleary back would be the dream signing but he may go to the Prem.

In short no to the overpaid, underachieving SWP!

Selling Lascelles or Darlow is poor business. Unless either of them have said they want to leave, I would def hang on to them.
If we can get to the promised land next season, A) both will be playing prem football and with that will be worth more if they perform at that level. B) the national team is changing to a younger model giving them both a better chance of being called up, meaning they will be worth more aswell.

I'm hope Mr. P and Fawaz think the same!

The game will go ahead, they are better off turning up with 8 pros and 7 kids for a squad because if I remember rightly Middlesborough failed to show up for a game at Blackburn and not only were Blackburn awarded the win, Boro were docked three points, so better to lose than actually have three taken away.

Billy was a complete nightmare towards the end of his tenure as manager. He acted like a spoilt child at times, who had just dropped his teddy from his buggy. The whole media situation was a farce; these are exactly the type of people football teams and managers should have on their side and he alienated them. His cousin was a complete Job Nockey who basically acted like he was playing Champ Manager. And whilst I agree we had some awful injuries, the way Billy did diddly squat to counteract those injuries was shameful, instead coming out with this player or that player will be back soon, so we'll wait. End result? Plummet down the league.
I was glad he went, and I couldn't give a cow's carrots if he never managed again. Sorry ed for the rant. sore subject still. But hey. this season rocks already!!

Billy Davies needs a physiatrist not a football club.
He is/was a talented manager, he put a squad together that should of walked promotion twice. But the little Billy in his head started inter fearing and the rest is history.
Ed, can you really see him with Rangers? Billy without a penny to spend?? Billy ego says he can! We all know he can't.

Trickie23 Trickie23

{Ed034's Note - yes i can. he is a massice rangers fan, has always said he wants to manage them and i have been told he is waiting for them.

Sadly, after Speaking to JL father, he has been quite confident that JL has been negotiating a deal with Spurs and Psycho will not interfere as the 6Mill bid is far too good to turn down.
That is the reason why we have not heard too much about JL 'injury' updates recently as he only has a slight knock but did not want to compromise getting injured & ruining his opportunity to play in the Prem,
Psycho knowing the above, has sharply entered the transfer market to bring in Mancienne & Hunt to bolster the defence with Experience till Wildon Hobbs & Cohen get full recuperation & not risk another long term injury as Psycho is planning ahead to having a fully strengthened fit squad in the final sprint after Xmas. COYRs!

Sadly I think jl will leave and a deal as already been done.
Pearce as brought in loads of defenders
And will need to let likes of Collins Halford Harding go.
They won't fetch much money. Jl will and we need to strengthen other areas such as winger and another forward.
Hope am wrong and jl stays.

Im sure there was a reported 8million bid for lascelles from spurs last? If so then the 6million rumour could be nothing but talk, I think JL is worth more than 6 million anyway.

jamienffc96

{Ed034's Note - but where was this £8m rumour from? nothing official

(0)
(0)

Don't get me wrong. I would love to see JL stay at the club but I doubt it will happen. £6. 5 - £7m would be a good down payment plus extras and if we get him back on loan until Christmas. If we can raise another £1m for Halford, Harding and Hendo I see that as good ROI.

I doubt Collins will go as adds experience. Although not the best defender and clearly passed his best, he means more to the side than releasing or on a free.

alberto219

Sadly I think the poster is spot on, I can see JL being sold off to Spuds or similar, I think they will wait until they have concluded all of their own business first before releasing JL.

If so, then so be it. we have done some good business so far in recruiting players to the club, and I can see Pearce wanting 3 or 4 more players before the season kicks off.

If this rumour is true I wish him the very best and think he will be a quality signing for Spurs. Unfortunately even with our chairman we will at times have to sell. Look at Southampton.

I won't be driving him down though.

I think if we have any ambition we should try our best to keep this young talent.

That said, everyone has their price and if everyone was fit then Hobbs and Wilson would be our best pair.

RLB84

{Ed034's Note - southampton have reguarly sold players. you canty stop players from wanting to better themselves and selling a player for a big amount and then reinvesting this money into the rest of the squad, cannot be seen as not having any ambition

This does not add up. JL is deluding himself if he thinks he is going to play first team football at Spurs.

They collect young talent like Pannini stickers then close the book and put it at the bottom of the draw!

If he moves to Spurs now he will never make the England team or become a top player as they will ruin his career

Redinexile Redinexile

Dawson was a better player than Jamaal at the same age. Check the Spurs squad lists over the years and it's littered with players they buy at a young age and then ruin.
Sorry but this guy is dead in the water if he goes to "Spares". He needs at least 2 full seasons in the first team to develop his talent.

Redinexile Redinexile

{Ed034's Note - that is a matter of opinion on who is the better player.

They don't have to be British for home grown players in Europe! they have to had 3seasons registered at a club between 16-21. for example cesc fabregas is now classed as home grown player for Chelsea, after his time with arsenal! so they will have enough. doubtful Jose will play him or include him! so more then likely be loaned out!

Henderson has his limitations and although I agree he probably isn't good enough to be playing in this seasons first team or making the subs bench very often imo he has done a good job under difficult circumstances and I wish him well if he does move on - and if he stays I hope he keeps fit and pushes some of the other lads, he's always a threat from the bench

@ van this is what's confusing me (tho that's quite easily done!)
We seem to have loads of defenders on paper but I'd still say yes to him. it's worrying how much game time Harding, Collins and to a lesser amount Halford have been getting.
First choice on paper or not it looks like they'll have a massive part to play again this season. better the devil we know? Would Leigerterwood (sic?) and Haidera do a better job?

I am abit blah to this news, with the defneders we have we should be able to cover this position until Lihaj is fit. Who is a quality full back!

I want to see something abit further up the park, box tox central midfielder, so when we have an injury to Lansbury (For example) we all don't panic!! I think the business to now is great, but we should be thinking about further up the park.

YOU REDS!

It's good we've got cover for now but I just don't think he's that good he played a few good games for Huddersfield was never good enough for palace in the first place I saw him play for Barnsley three or four times and he didn't look very good I hope he proves me wrong but I think he was a flash in the pan and might be dodgy for us

Re Jvreddog, we don't have any full back cover for the right side and I'm not convinced that halford is good cover in that position. It sounds like Pearce doesn't either. And from what's been said about hunt it sounds like he's a good attacking full back which is good news. If we can get round pegs then that's surely better than making do with players that aren't suited to their roles. Strength in depth!

Lansbury was walking just with a slight limp - hobble without any crutches or other support at Porto Airport on Sunday
He caught same flight as a colleague of mine and will have the injury properly assessed when back in UK after swelling gone down
For sure it is NOT long term, so all those pessimists please take note, Lansbury will be OK for start of season

I wouldn't say we're that clear of no bid, as they need a back up keeper after losing Fabiaski (spelling most likely wrong) and Mannone (again, prob spelt wrong). With his huge potential he has, you still can't rule out a bid from them.

Ed, hearing off a mate of mine back home that Micah Richards is desperate to go out on loan to resurrect his career and that he fancies coming to Forest. Hope it's true as I think he's a terrific right back. Having Stuart Pearce as manager is proving a real bonus in getting players in. Any truth in this?.

Having watched the incident on Forest Player it didn't look like a knock. His left standing leg twists or buckles slightly. There is no real contact with the player.

Spot on worksop tricky. can't be doing with another season of team disruption due to injured players. sure players get injured but hobbs, wilson, landsbury were all injured or injury prone even before signing. no doubt our most talented players, but they are injury prone and will probably continue to be so. throw licaj, reid, and vaughan in and it could be yet more injury frustration. psycho looks to be addressing the situation and he needs to. the great brian clough hated injured players around the club, hope we get 30+ games out of these players this year, I feel we will need to in order to get promotion.

Landsbury has the greatest respect of SP. He'll want to have a good season with the reds, injury free and re pay the faith to the fans and manager. Expect a new conditioned landsbury this season playing just behind a front pairing breaking from midfield scoring lots of goals. SP favours a wing back system with three CB's and three in the middle of the park. Two target men up front.

We'll sell nobody Pearce doesn't want to and as has been said umpteen times Lansbury is an integral part of that.

Rumours on social media saying we are being sponsored by the kuwaiti government and in the deal we will be renaming the city ground to the kuwaiti city ground and the sponsor on the shirt will be KUW.

No, no and no. 'The Kuwait city ground' sponsored by Kuwait the country with its capital city 'Kuwait City' as the sponsor. Looks like a sneaky attempt at keeping the city ground alive but rebranding at the same time. I don't care how much money it brings in and I don't mind the stadium being called the fawaz arena or the Adidas ground for example. But Kuwait City ground is no more Nottingham than the others and the idea of it becoming a piece of Kuwait in the East Midlands would really rub me the wrong way. I hope it isn't true. Rant over.

When st James park got changed to sports direct arena, they didn't start selling half time dodgy jogging bottoms did they? The name is just like the name on the shirt, it doesn't change a thing about the club. Like the carling/worthington/league cup. We have kept city ground as the name so it's a win in my opinion.

I think we have to be a realistic about the matter.
Re naming the ground is a way around FFP, Man City have been backed the the same government to the tune of millions.
We have to remember that the club actually runs at a loss and without Fawaz we would be doomed.
He wants to do what's best for the club and with the extra financial backing the promised land can't be far away.
We can't expect a big sponsorship deal until we get promoted as can we expect Fawaz to keep spending his own money.
We don't want to lose our better players but without financial assistance we will only end up with a fine and a transfer embargo.
I know which I would prefer

How any fan can complain at the name change is beyond me. It will still be the city ground to us fans. Basically still the city ground if the rumoured name is to be believed any ways. Our owner is from KIWAIT, he's trying to get big investment from KUWAIT so if that means adding Kuwait before city ground to secure extra funds to strengthen and comply with ffp then so be it as it's all for the greater good of our club.

It will always be the City Ground regardless of any renaming. Fantastic times ahead, young lads in, tried and tested in and more to come. One of the things that exites me that we have not had is the stability and people in the background working wonders.

Fawaz loves the club & is as passionate as us all Forest fans. So in Fawaz we trust~ with Top Flight Football destined at the Q8 City Ground!

I'm afraid that's the sign of the times. People are desparate for success and only money will buy you that. If you want to keep up you need to sell all your assets, your name, your history and your heritage. Do we want to be a Man City or a Notts county? I think take the money and go for it. Whatever happens it will always be the City Ground to the fans.

I can't understand why anyone would be negative about this. Which do you care most about, the city ground having Kuwait in front of it or a 3rd star on our shirts?

I say, go for it! I want my beloved Forest back in PL, and football at the highest level today take the right persons and money at the right time. I trust in Fawaz, this could be the right time, persons and money, GO REDS FOREVER!

Arsenal lost Highbury completely and were given a shiny new stadium called The Emirates. Seems like most have accepted that now. As a name change its a less aggressive compromise, bring on the prem.

We will all still call it the city ground. Don't see why people would be bothered. If it means a lot of money coming in then crack on. People think fawaz can just pump money into the club but he can't. Ffp prevents that and we need ways around it.

As long as we remain Nottingham Forest. does it really matter. we can't keep losing 8 to 10 million every year. Follow Forest home and away enjoy following your club, the names of grounds are changing quickly with the times. The mist will always roll in from the Trent. U REDS

Because Ed, Kuwait Government giving u s millions KUW on the shirt, Kuwait City Ground, I can see them wanting to add Green and black to our colours, just a thought? that's one thing I wouldn't be happy about :- ( we will always be Red!

{Ed034's Note - fawaz has only ever gone on about history, fans, tradition. There is absolute no reason to think this will happen.

Let's be honest at least there not tryin to re name it somethin that has absolutely nothin to do with the club, for example the I pro stadium. We would still be keepin the name which shows the owners passion and pride for the club

No chance, he'd go to a Premiership club if anywhere.

Reports are that Ronald Koeman wants him at Southampton as he used to manage him so we would be lucky to get him

OK, it seems SP is looking to play a formation like this: 10 - 0 - 0!

If this happens I'm very excited - with all of these young signings it looks like we will be working off of talent, then if/when we get to the promised land we will have an experienced young team who will hopefully develop into a real force.

All strong and stable houses need a good foundation, with all the strength at the back we are looking like we will have the strength to move forward and with Pearce managing these players I feel it can only be positive.

Build from the back, can't go to the prem and expect to be bagging 3 goals every game, a powerful, developing and in depth defence will keep us in the top division. (Assuming we get there ofcourse)

I heard the same from a qpr fan at work, may have missed out on this one, he will have premiership football and qpr can probably pay him more

He is not on trial at QPR. He is simply training with them to keep his fitness up. also he is definitely not a Forest target!
