I've heard we are interested in Guedioura initially on loan or Palacios on loan till January to cover for Cohen's injury.

I think Cohen may be forced to retire.

Not sure if this qualifies as a rumour, but we are quiet at the moment and hopefully Ed will post it. Is there any truth in the previous rumours that Darlow and Lascelles have a clause in case Newcastle get relegated/us promoted? At the moment there is a decent chance of both!

F.A.Wazz

No doubt there'll be certain clauses in their contracts but a very much doubt this would be one of them. Would make no sense from Newcastles point of view. They won't get relegated anyway.

I think the rumour may have been wishful thinking on my part but surely the players agents should have considered the possibility. My "joke" suggested we gave the moNey back after our promotion? and we pay Newcastle enough to cover our loan of the players concerned - many a true word spoken in jest! We are top and they are struggling so who knows COYR!

We have first option for buy back. That's what the clause says. Effectively the terms of sell on fee would reduce any amount we have to pay. Interest would be added only to the transfers.

It was reported recently that we found a loop and took full advantage. Fifa and the FA are looking to close the loop.

Great to send the lad on loan but quite frankly I wouldn't lend them anything, much sooner see us help other local clubs whose deluded fans aren't continuously dreaming of an implosion at forest - and are quite vociferous about it as well. Sooner they go bust the better as far as I'm concerned.

Im not keen on the pies these days they are so anti forest, but its common sense to loan them our players who are just off the fringe of our first team, apparently LL had a good game for them on saturday, and as its only a month loan we can re-assess things after that.

Good luck Greg, you always tried and would be happy to play anywhere, even in a position where you were not best suited. It seems that Stu thinks you would be better off elsewhere. Hopefully your gametime will be much better elsewhere. Thanks for all your effort.

flipflopper

Can I endorse that good luck message to Greg and hope the same goes to Collins when he gets a move. SOD brought both in at a time when a squad needed hasty assembling and the choice was narrow. I don't think he or we ever expected either to be players to take us into the prem. But they have been good, solid pros, who have seen us through tough patches and neither ever gave less than their best or showed anything but support for the club. Good luck!

Well said TrickyTreeFC, best of luck to them and thanks!

I disagree. Halford didn't give no where near his best towards the back end of last season, he gave up. Much like most other players. Still, he has, on the main been a good pro and put in a lot of solid performances. Collins has been quite been the defender we expected.

GazzaRed

(2)
(2)

I think Halford was a good player for us, he is obviously a passionate player however his problem in my opinion was that he used to commit too many fouls, got irritated at other team mates too often and tended to be a little lazy towards the end of games.

Having said that I really cannot fault him for the roles he played and his versatility. I honestly think he would be great at a team who would play him in his one position consistently. GOOD LUCK GREG!

OMRIFTT

(1)

If he goes then wish all the best, he might not have been at his best at the end of the season (who was) but he gave 110% every game whatever position he played in. Just hope he gets a position and is allowed to stick to it, playing if every position is not good for a player as suggest you're not quite good enough for 1 position but okay for several which affects confidence.

Greg has had a niggling injury for the past 6 months which explains his dip in form towards the end of last season. He should be given credit for playing on with pain killing injections to help out an already injury ravaged side. Harsh to judge a players performances if not 100% fit but will always give his best in my opinion.

Give Greg some credit! played all over the park last season without moaning, just got on with it! he was our top Striker for a while, Players like him always good from the Bench, when we need them throw ins into the box! Like to see him stay.

I've seen him on player training - think he's been involved since the beginning

Willow Willow

If we can't shift him we should try and get him training with the first team to see how he reacts and if it's positive get him more involved as it's a lot of wages to be paying for him to be out of the squad, may as well get some use out of him. pearce will sort his head out and get him playing. its hard to sell a player that doesn't play who is on massive wages. play him in the cup or something.

uptheforest uptheforest

I think he is massively talented and can do great things with a football but he sounds like he needs a Pyscho boot up his Harris. Let's hope he gets a grip and understands what's needed. Be a good player to bring on?

Oakhamred- he won't be sold if he doesn't play. if rumours are to be believed Paterson has had an attitude problem over the last month after not being played so he's in the same boat. he needs to play to get a buyer. paterson will get his chance.
As someone said I would rather abdoun come on in stead of McLaughlin.

uptheforest uptheforest

Cjay don't be so daft - you can't pay him that sort of money and let him rot in the reserves that's an insult to our reserve players who are doing the right thing.

Everyone deserves a second chance. If he proves he's changed and has apologised for his previous behaviour then give him a chance. He's costing a lot of money after all. You could easily dump him out the team if he starts acting like an person again

RiddingsRed

I agree that he's too expensive not to play.

I think gentle reintegration with the new team and allow him to earn his place. Surely some games in the reserves to get his fitness up and then in to the 1st team if, AND ONLY IF, he deserves it with both ability and attitude.

Failing that, we'll have a player that is short of match fitness that we're paying a fortune to that we want to sell/move on but isn't in the shop window.

He needs to play, showcase his ability in order to engineer that move away. It's galling to say it after everything I've heard from Ed but the lad needs to be on the pitch in order for us to move him on.

Half a season of good performances as a league sub or cup starter could see us rid by February.

Cohen & Tesche can fill the role and are both match fit and less injury prone. I can see him going out on a months loan to regain fitness and sharpness

Not a chance. he is a player pearce can't wait for to get fit.

He is valuable to the team, as i'm sure SP and his crew are aware, so a short term loan for fitness reasons seems entirely possible.

RanDamRed

We need to keep everyone match fit so expect a number of short term loans out.

We now have a united squad not a divide rule approach so everyone will bust a gut and buy into whatever SP and his management team feel is best for the club and the individual.

Abdoun apart no more mardy lips although even he might appreciate any olive branch after joining a manager who clearly never wanted him

Any news on Forest getting category 1 status for the Academy.

Jaj

(6)
(17)

I was wondering that the other day! My research on line said that it is reviewed every two to three years, the main difference being operating budget needs to be £2.5m and an increase ratio of coaches to players moving from 1:10 to 1:8. I would expect our status to change back end of next year at the earliest.

Willow Willow

(1)

This was a topic talked about with Paul Taylor online. He seems to think we are a little behind with the requirements needed. As the previous post says, the investment alone is substantial and then we still need more staff aswell. But Faulkner is impressed with the training facilities, and makes you think when we get promoted, he would see if financially, can be done. From what I read about our training facilities, does it matter, as it sounds like to be the best grade 2 anyway. And football people know we have some of the best youth coaches

geeboy

Saw the interview with the new CEO on the Forest player. Comes across really well and it's exciting to see someone who will push the commercial side more and he has many valid points about the basic foundations the Reds have. That'll definitely help with the academy status long term. We are an exciting club and our commercial prospects are far stronger than many EPL teams if we can just get there.

Ed! Any news on the jack hobbs injury from the Sheffield weds game mate

Garrytoon

Ed01{Ed001's Note - nothing certain yet, clubs like to keep injury news unclear so put out disinformation as it makes it difficult for opponents to plan for the next game if they can't be sure who is playing. I have heard everything from he will be fit and well for the next game to he will be out for a few months. Injuries are one of the most difficult areas to keep track of in football these days, there are very few people actually involved that can let details slip. Unlike transfers where it is in an agent's interests to get info out in the open to get their client a better offer. It is hard to know what can be trusted with injuries.}

It's okay cancelling his contract, and not paying him off, but I would assume we are still paying off his transfer fee with the Greek club. Please correct me if I am wrong.

International transfer window closed, only way to loan him out would be on an emergency loan within the English football league.

Why cancel his contract and pay him off? If we did this he would then effectively get paid by us and a new club. Let him rot and ruin his career training with our under 21's. Time to play hardball - wait for his agent to negotiate a payoff that suits us not him!

captain caveman

The long and short of it clearly that any pay-off of his contract has been declined by the player/agent - assuming one has been offered.

It looks like no club is prepared to match the wages he is on at forest or he would already have gone on a free-transfer.

He could have his contract cancelled for nothing by mutual consent and be free to go to another club. Abdoun would then be worse off financially but a free agent and able to sign for another club. I'm guessing because nobody will match his wages here that he won't do it.

He is staying for football not financial reasons sadly.

Too right captain! I thought he (& his mate the "terrorist"- only thing he terrorised were the pigeons roosting above Colwick road end!) was going to be a really good signing but Lord knows how and why it went belly up?
I can only assume that cultural differences conspired against him. I'm not talking a grasp of English and lifestyle but more footballing culture- maybe he CBA'd training properly and we could all see he wouldn't work hard enough during matches ie no back tracking etc. no getting in faces or throwing himself into blocks and tackles.
Whatever the problem (s) were the fault HAS to be with him- to a man each new signing has said how welcome they're made to feel etc then again maybe most don't walk in givin it the big I am.
We'll never know fully I guess but one thing I do know is every player that moves on I wish luck to but not him and his mate I'm afraid- what I'd give to pull on that famous garibaldi so I'm sorry if you care not for OUR club, Nottingham Forest, then don't let the door hit your ass!

I don't think that a pay off has been offered! I'm sure that the spineless gold digger would of taken any pay off.
I wouldn't allow him to train with any member of the club, I'd isolate him and let him rot.
Or sod him off, send him to somewhere Grimm on a emergency loan basis.
Why is it, that this seems to happen just to us, you don't hear about others.

My original Abdoun rumour was a complete punt based on the only club likely to sign him as he was not likely to be playing?

Mr Taylor please keep on top of your job and network rather than feed on scraps from a distant fan who actually follows football!

I do hope you reversed the charges for the call to Greece?

Commons was a Forest fan. He stopped on for an extra year when he had the opportunity to move on. He got abuse as a player, yet he was called a traitor for joining the sheep who had given him a job on much better pay. The man cannot win with some of you.

No I would not want him back and he will not be coming unless we have a spate of injuries and Stuart wants him. More to the point would he want to come?

Hatem Ben Arfur is to be shipped out on loan Tomm, Birmingham are favourites, with a host of Championship clubs including us, maybe our recent Dealings with Newcastle could swing a deal, would be a great signing for us!

No he's not Abdoun #2, he's a French international on about 65k p/w and was one of the best players in the Prem last year aha! More chance of David Platt winning manager of the century

There's more chance of Real Madrid swopping Ronaldo, Benzema and Bale for Halford than Platt ever being named manager of the week, let alone manager of the century.

So refreshing when you can wake up on transfer deadline day and make plans, safe in the knowledge that the squad is complete. No waiting around for "stellar" signings or "20 goal a season" strikers. No feeling of frustration or discontent when the window shuts. Maybe take a day off Ed? We can all start looking forward to the next game. who are we playing again? COYR

Seems like a really strange rumour. McGoldrick has had one good season in the Championship, isn't that young, and just coming back from injuries. Weird.

Surely getting Troy Deeney or Jordan Rhodes would be better, even if they'd cost over 10 million.

This McGoldrick fee is high-level crazy talk. I'll put my hands up to having had doubts about the Assombalonga deal but it's clear on the evidence so far that Stuart Pearce is more astute in his dealings (and his ability to build a cohesive team) than I'd dared hope.

There is a lot more to D.M. Game than just scoring goals, good control , passing, clever , just wasn't,t used right at Forest and not played consistently like many of the strikers who we paid good money for over the last 15 years, who have often gone to play well elsewhere,hopefully SP is going to put this right by not swapping and changing the front two all the time and give them time to gel together. Mcgoldrick could flourish in the premier.

I doubt he's worth that, besides his failure at Forest he has done very well at the other clubs he's played at, just not a player suited to Forest style. He's a talented player and may flourish at Leicester. Does make Forest transfers this summer look good business though.

Morning fellow red dogs.
I'm sure you all agree it's been a great summer and start to the season since a lot if our boyhood hero, Stuart Pearce, took over.
With the noise coming out that there is likely to be no more incomings, I've set a poll up asking who you believe to be our best signing so far.
Please vote. you reds!!

Ed034

Redeye Redeye

Sorry ed but I can't vote on this one-its impossible, when you go down that list and evaluate the value to the team of each player and what we paid for them its a very tricky one. They are all great signings and all look great value- maybe you should try a poll for our worst signing this season? Oh hang on, we havnt made any bad signings!! I'll challenge anyone to pick a major fault with any of our signings the only thing i'd question is Laing? i'm sure he was signed for his potential but only signed a one or two year deal? Bit of a risk that we develop him then lose him on the cheap, or is he that young that if that happened it would be sent to a tribunal? You redddsss!!

We've had good starts before and it does feel different this season- as though it's our time.
I have a couple of concerns though.
1) whether we win promotion or not (I believe we will as I say this is our time)
Darlow leaving is going to be a massive, massive loss- how do we replace that?
I've not seen as good a keeper since Steve Sutton.
We need to pull the plug on it somehow I've no idea how but we just do! Lol
2) How will Fawaz react when our bad patch comes along (& let's face it we probably will hit one- most teams do) he can be a little impatient from what we've/I've seen? We need to ride out any drops in form lest we'll lose our best shot at going up and staying up.
We have everything in place, real stability and we need to keep our eyes on the prize

I see a lot of people are saying mancienne as our best signing, I am finding it hard to disagree. but I am still going to edge towards keeping Lansbury as the best signing/bit of business forest have done this window. I think he will be to us how lampard was to Chelsea and bag 15+ goals this season. just what we need from the midfield, to chip in with vital goals.

With all due respect guys Swansea have probably offered better wages, have as good or better facilities for developing youngsters and are already a decent premier league side. On top of that, he hasn't been with Forest for that long really so undoubtedly has the freedom to move now whilst he has no real ties to us. If I was in his position I'd know which option was the more lucrative one. Just my thoughts.

Why are fans worried about this youngster moving on? When Bamford left we needed the cash and the millions we got from his and Wes Morgans sale kept us in the championship. Stuart Pearce would have looked at the player and along with the development/youth team personnel would have decided to offer a contact at what they felt the players potential was. Obviously he has looked else where and left. We canot afford to be held to ransome by agents or players especially youngsters who have come no where near to making the first team

He's not the first and won't be the last young player to go elsewhere for more money.

In an interview with a South Wales newspaper he's stated as saying "It's taken a long time to sort out. " so I'd imagine he has been angling for this move for a while.

It's not like we've lost a key player. Wish him luck and move on.

I'm sure Mr Pearce, our Nation's former Under 21's manager knows what to look for in a youth player. Pretty sure that if the player was that good, we would have offered whateve was necessary to keep him at the club (a la Lansbury). All the best, Jon

Actually, it's the best start since 2006/07 season in League One when we won 6 and drew 1 of the 1st 7 league games (though we did lose in the league cup 1st round). Not to be gloomy but you'll recall we went in to the play-offs that season and won the 1st leg 2-0 away to Yeovil. . . . .

From old accounts on Villa forums, he sounds like a good guy and, looking at his past experience and the situation he's coming into, he's probably a good choice.

Depending on their (palaces) position come January I think could play a big part in us trying to negotiate a permenant deal for him. To prize him away should they be struggling.

SP wants him to join permanently, he has been watching him since Hunt was at Huddersfield after being told to keep an eye on him by the Huddersfield staff after looking at Rhodes for the Olympics. Think it's Palace that don't want to sell or loan for longer than current loan is currently.

Pearce said in an interview a few weeks a go that when on a scouting trip a couple of seasons ago he had asked Huddersfield fans who their best player was and they had said Hunt. A top quality player who I would love to see on a permanent deal. Not a fan of Warnock but I would have thought that he an Pearce have a decent relationship through their dealings on that sports radio show. But he is a Palace player who no doubt Warnock will keep a close eye on from now on. We might have to make a decent offer for him.

I heard that lascelles and Mr Darlow have clauses saying if Newky utd get relegated they can pull out of the transfer and forest can pay back the loan fee plus loss of interest to keep them if we get promoted I also heard that if that isn't the case it should have been so. especially for KD. Also in a few years when Newcastle are struggling with Fair play rules we will bung them a few million to balance their books.

I've heard that Darlow with his reluctance to sign at the last minute for Newcastle they added a relegation release clause, to persuade him he's doing the right thing. Anyone know how true this is? If so does this mean he's on a freebie or just the deal gets ko'd?

They bought him because the price was so attractive; whether he ever plays for them or not, as a young English keeper attracting attention and developing his game in the Championship, he represents a solid investment.

What would Darlow do IF we got promoted into the EPL? Don't think he would be NUFC first choice keeper, but more than likely would be ours. Is re-signing him out of the picture when we have more cash to play around with under FFP? Would the fans accept him back?
