There is a rumour down here in Birmingham that he's heading to the noses for the rest of the season.

He's gone to Brum for the rest of the season. On official website.

Agree2 Disagree0

02 Mar 2015 14:27:26
Gone to Birmingham for the rest of the season. If you ask me a bit stupid. A really fine and hard working player. Ed, have you heard why, have something happen behind the scenes?

{Ed001's Note - he wasn't getting in the team so a loan was best for all. Freedman wasn't intending to use him.}

Teache gone to Birmingham

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Mar 2015 15:30:58
Reckon Veldwijk and Paterson due to be loaned out. Could we then get someone in? Might as well give play-offs our best shot. Wood now at Ipswich so not sure who might arrive.

Agree0 Disagree1

 

 

27 Feb 2015 20:37:13
There is talk 1, or 2 players will be rested tomorrow, if there is I would fancy Tesche and Patterson to get the nod. Which 2 would you want to be given a chance.

Devries & Paterson

Fryatt and Paterson for Dex and Burke

28 Feb 2015 01:57:02
anonymous shout for Paterson an I agree, deserves a start in my opinion. did so well for us last season and now just warming the bench

Agree0 Disagree1

Paterson did great today didn't he!

When will people realise he is not good enough?

Agree3 Disagree0

01 Mar 2015 08:25:29
Paterson is good enough, look how well he did in the second half of last season.

He had a bad game, all players have them.

But I have to say, I'm not sure why he was on the left and Antonio on the right, that seems to make both less effective.

Agree0 Disagree2

02 Mar 2015 12:52:28
Players like Patterson play from confidence, that requires game time.

Rangers looking at Freedman as next manager: Source: Scottish red top

Believable4 Unbelievable12

25 Feb 2015 13:37:52
Rangers cannot be "looking" for anyone as there are at least 3 groups of directors fighting for control of the club.

Mike Ashley will finally decide on who he wants at the end of the season once the others fail to match their bluster with cash and he gains complete control

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Feb 2015 13:54:44
Billy Davies was also heavily linked with this job. Anyone who thinks things are bad at Forest in terms of how the club is run would think we are a model of stability and order in comparison. No manager with any pedigree will consider this job unless or until some stability is brought to the club. And no-one sees that happening in the short to medium term at least.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Feb 2015 14:35:23
Sign Dougie on a long term contract failing that Mark Warburton will be looking for work.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Feb 2015 16:53:40
dougie as already made that mistake with hjs move from palace to bolton i can't see him making it again.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Feb 2015 18:16:56
Sloppy reporting.
He's not even in betting.
This is made up rumour and never going to happen.

Agree1 Disagree0

 

 

23 Feb 2015 17:33:17
Grant has just signed a new 2 year contract and both he and Walker scored again for the U21 side who beat Coventry today. Seems like Fawaz and Dougie are definitely into building our youngsters into the First team. With FFP around we need to keep our best young lads.

Believable8 Unbelievable2

23 Feb 2015 21:40:55
Very good news hopefully now until the end of the season we can bring him into the team along with Tyler walker

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Feb 2015 11:08:11
Good to see the youngsters signing on, think might be worth sending Jorge and Tyler out on loan too so they can get experience playing first team football for a lower league club.

Agree0 Disagree1

24 Feb 2015 17:55:01
Does anyone know how Laing is doing at Motherwell? Is he getting starts? IF they don't re-sign Collins and Lascelles is leaving in the summer we need him to be ready.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Feb 2015 19:49:53
He has made two appearances for them since he went on loan. Probably would have been three but he was sent off 25 minutes into his debut and served a one match suspension. Haven't found any reports on his performances but he went straight into the starting eleven and was restored after said ban so that has to be a sign of encouragement. Hope he manages to play the remainder of their games and comes back more experienced and hungry to get a regular spot for us.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Feb 2015 15:48:25
Good to hear he is playing. We only have Mancienne, Wilson and Laing on contract after the summer and we can't bring big names in.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Feb 2015 14:03:29
Apparently freedman looking at matt mills who's available on a free in the summer. Is he any good?

Believable7 Unbelievable16

22 Feb 2015 14:42:58
Did he not get sent off against us yesterday?

Agree2 Disagree0

22 Feb 2015 15:24:45
Sign him up! Could be playing for us already!

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Feb 2015 15:46:35
Had we signed him on 2009 I would have been happy.

Now, no thanks

Agree3 Disagree0

22 Feb 2015 16:47:29
He has never been the sharpest tool in the box, and yesterday showed us, that he ain't that clever. Two stupid yellow cards and a lot of mistankes on and off the ball, no thanks!

Agree4 Disagree0

22 Feb 2015 22:19:15
We have much better centre backs in our squads, end of.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Feb 2015 22:55:38
He should be looking at Bolton's Clough as he IS class!

Agree4 Disagree1

23 Feb 2015 01:55:37
And what do you think are the chances of us getting a player like that for free or on loan. Absolutely zero, so a pointless comment

Agree4 Disagree0

23 Feb 2015 07:37:26
It's just a view - so pointless as your message and about as pointless as mine!

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Feb 2015 11:32:00
He would be a good addition to the squad.
People who say get clough from them, have forgot our embargo and £10,000 wage max limit.
There won't be to many better then Mills available.
Get him in.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Feb 2015 14:49:17
Sooner have Wheater from Bolton

21 Feb 2015 12:02:04
My son's coach is part of the villa set-up. Some of his group are seeing the same knee specialist as Brit in London.
Apparently, Brit has done severe damage inside his knee, some of the worst the specialist has seen. A year is a very loose estimation. It's likely to be longer if at all. Still early days but not looking good.

Believable11 Unbelievable33

21 Feb 2015 14:33:32
So your son plays for villa??

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2015 14:58:05
Sounds like scare mongering to me

Agree3 Disagree0

22 Feb 2015 09:17:39
Didn't Shaun barker suffer the same injury?obviously it won't be exactly the same injury but both dislocated there kneecaps and both have done severe damage to there ligaments.they said barker will be out for a year but then changed it to 16 months.i won't be expecting him back until we are out of the transfer embargo which will be 2016/2017 season.
So I don't think trickie will be far wrong to be honest

Agree0 Disagree0

Ironically Barker sustained his injury playing against us in march 2012. He is now back in training. For now it's all speculation, after all how long is a piece of string?

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Feb 2015 12:04:27
You really have to wonder why people post such unpleasantness. the attention? Britt saw a consultant in the Midlands, he is having a 2 week break in London then is back for rehab under the care of the consultant in the Midlands. the same team as for Cohen. It is also understood he will travel to USA with Cohen to see the famous surgeon who has operated on many top athletes and players.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Feb 2015 23:16:19
I don't believe this post.

20 Feb 2015 14:47:49
Kevin Macdonald who has done so well with the U18s has left the club. gone to Aston Villa as Asst. Manager. He did a fine job. Wonder who else is leaving?

Believable18 Unbelievable1

Would be great now if we bought Paul Hart back ,some good lads for who ever to work with!

CARLO

Agree4 Disagree0

20 Feb 2015 19:47:30
Yes, I was disappointed to read that. He did a great job with the U18's and seemed to work well with Jack Lester. He has been highly rated for years as a coach and, I think, man-manager. And No 2 at Villa, where he is highly regarded, is a good promotion, I guess.
Maybe Jack can step up now? Where is Chris Fairclough these days, by the way?

Agree2 Disagree0

Would love to see hart back we all know what he can do with youngsters

Agree4 Disagree0

20 Feb 2015 22:53:30
Why woulds he come here to look after the u18's when he's the academy director at Charlton?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2015 09:22:05
Because he is not at Charlton he is at notts

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2015 09:50:50
Chris Fairclough is at Notts as well

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2015 11:56:44
LOL. That will teach me to not take notice of wpedia.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Feb 2015 12:05:56
Why would he not leave to work in the Prem?? Would not be at all surprised to see Steve Hodge join set up as has recently finished at Wolves.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Feb 2015 19:06:38
Just been on the Beeb, jack Hobbs is out for 3-4 weeks.
He will be missed.

Believable29 Unbelievable2

It always seems that Hobbs, Wilson, Reid and Cohen have injury problems. In future when Forest are allowed to buy players is to check their antecedents with regard to their previous injuries.

Agree2 Disagree1

It was Freedman on the local Radio, he said he has been playing 3 games a week and it is too many games for him and has pulled his hamstring. Add Vaughan tptghe list

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Feb 2015 21:55:11
Blackpool's cabbage patch of a pitch wouldn't have helped. Must be getting near to Riera time.

Agree1 Disagree0

Some of these players are on loads of bucks and whinge when they have to play several matches in a short space of time. When I was in my prime ie 1967 I played 3 matches over a weekend and never trained. Also I had to pay for playing.

Agree1 Disagree0

Apparently Riera lacks pace. Probably why Barcelona let him go.

Agree0 Disagree2

18 Feb 2015 09:04:08
Only think Hobbs had Injury problems before joining Forest so checking them for previous injuries isn't really going to help.

Lack of pace isn't a major problem as Hobbs doesn't have any pace but neither does John Terry. If you can read the game you make up for that lack of Pace. Think Reira may get chance next season.

Agree2 Disagree0

18 Feb 2015 17:18:30
He was also barca youth captain and there was a lot of people shocked when he was let go and he had a fair few offers, but don't think he will he a first team chance before Laing

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Feb 2015 10:24:45
Don't think there's many clubs that wouldn't buy aguero if they could afford him.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Feb 2015 09:16:00
Anyone heard anything on Jack Hobbs, seems to have all gone silent.

Believable14 Unbelievable7

Also if if Hobbs is out for a few games we will need Kelvin Wilson, he did not make the 18 on Saturday, any news as to whether he is injured or just not fancied by Freedman >

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Feb 2015 11:04:53
Expect find out today regarding Hobbs, Mancienne should be back in training this today and if remember correct Wilson later this week or next week as has a slight injury if I remember Freedman pre match conference.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Feb 2015 11:50:38
Unfortunately knowing Jacks injuries prob about 4 months shame because he's easily our best defender

Agree2 Disagree2

16 Feb 2015 12:13:00
He pulled up with his hamstring so my guess would be a couple of weeks if not more.mancienne and Wilson both back in training today.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Feb 2015 15:08:13
Just hope it was more precautionary that they took him off

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Feb 2015 16:02:23
He is made of chocolate, but by far our best ( only) defender!!!!!

Agree1 Disagree1

17 Feb 2015 11:09:13
we are cursed when it comes to inuries - pure and simple

Agree0 Disagree1

17 Feb 2015 13:01:14
Out for four weeks apparently according to nottm post

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Feb 2015 14:16:53
Seems he struggles to play 3 games in 1 week Needs to be handled delicately in future

Agree0 Disagree0

If a player gets injured on international duty then the FA has to compensate the club. I think that Blackpool should have to compensate us for his injury. That pitch was an absolute disgrace and led to Hobbs' injury. They should have to cover his medical costs at least. There should be an official enquiry about the pitch because it is not suitable for this league. Blackpool find themselves at the wrong end of the table and desperate for points so they have basically ploughed their pitch so teams cannot play passing football, just in the attempt to scrape points here and there. It is as clear as day!

The football league really should be looking into this!!!!

{Ed001's Note - their pitch has been awful for years, I really hope your tongue was in your cheek there...}

Agree0 Disagree1

17 Feb 2015 16:03:39
Who's next, just hate our luck, 4 week out after just coming back. Don't care if Wilson is ready, Hobbs is our only real class defender!!!

Agree0 Disagree1

17 Feb 2015 18:00:17
Would like to see Laing and Reira given a go, see what they got for next year.

Agree2 Disagree0

17 Feb 2015 18:19:34
Laing is at Motherwell on loan. I too would like to see Riera tried out. If we are that desperate then it also might make sense to put Kane at right back, move Lichaj to left and give Fox another run at CB - tho I think he didn't do so well last time.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Feb 2015 12:35:27
Liverpool, arsenal, spurs and man united are tracking forest striker Tyler walker. Hope not as he's one for the reds future or possibly a player for now.

Believable22 Unbelievable18

Probably be another Patrick Bamford. Scores goals in Academy then moved out before we even play him. Hope not though as Dougie seems keen to bring our younger talent through to the first team.

Agree2 Disagree2

15 Feb 2015 15:50:08
Hands off, but what can we do. If they want, they will get him.
I personally think we should start playing him in the first team as soon we are clear of the relegation battle. Play off is long gone.

Agree2 Disagree1

15 Feb 2015 18:47:17
Been strangled by FFP is a worry if the big prem clubs come in with a big offer, I think Fawaz would be tempted hope to god I'm wrong I wanna see Tyler playing for Forest for years to come.

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Feb 2015 20:33:03
I doesn't make any sense to sell players at the moment. Even if someone bought him for 50 million, we will still but under the embargo because we breached FFP. It doesn't matter how much profit we move into, we cannot sign players for a transfer fee. In that case, we should keep a hold of our players and build with what we have. We should play Tyler later on this season once we are safe so he gets some game time and see how he does in preseason.

Its the same reason why we didn't accept any of the other offers for Lansbury or Antonio, both of which we for 4m. Why would we do it with Tyler?

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Feb 2015 20:40:30
Dont think we will sell yet due to ffp if we were just going to take the money we had a few bids for players on deadline day and he has just signed a new contract

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Feb 2015 16:07:37
Everyone is tracking everyone - it's normal. Chill.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2015 12:41:38
U heard it here first, chris woods has signed on loan

Believable27 Unbelievable112

13 Feb 2015 15:41:10
I think not. Woods is injured and Freedman has said that the strikers we got can do the job. Personally I think they can't, but that's just my opinion, what do you guys think? Ed?

{Ed039's Note - Its ashame Greg Halford is out on loan)

Agree5 Disagree1

13 Feb 2015 18:23:35
Can we recall Halford?

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2015 17:49:13
Give over Ed e is a donkey

{Ed039's Note - tongue in cheek bud, came to that last season)

Agree0 Disagree2

13 Feb 2015 20:49:10
Surely we aren't out of the Woods yet?! You can't see the Woods for the Trees! Come on you Trickies.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2015 21:15:25
Had me worried Ed
I read Roy Keane book where he said He was the worst player He had ever signed, and He paid 2.5 million for him at Sunderland

{Ed039's Note - that says a lot when you look at some of the signings keane made )

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Feb 2015 09:21:03
Hope he can play in defence Playin Collins n Lacelles 2gether don't work found that out last season

12 Feb 2015 07:04:36
Passing on what a nurse friend I know told me. Britt was in QMC last night. Broken tib and fib. Get well soon!

Believable11 Unbelievable102

12 Feb 2015 10:08:55
If he had a broken tub and fib would he be sat on two chairs (in a leg brace)having pictures took with someone?i think he would be in the operating theatre having an op to sort it ASAP.
No source just thinking with my head.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2015 10:17:00
Your nurse friend needs to find a new profession!

He's dislocated his knee cap, which could mean anything from a month or two out, or possibly until the Summer depending on the severity of the damage and the speed of recovery.

Agree3 Disagree0

12 Feb 2015 10:20:23
They think he dislocated his knee, such a shame as he has done very well for a debut season, hope he's back before the end, get well soon Dave.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2015 10:29:48
Just seen a picture where the pyhsio is bending Britts knee. would they do that if he had broken his leg, very much doubt it but would they also do it if he's dislocated it?could do with a fawaz tweet

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2015 10:45:12
It's a dislocated knee. Waiting for scans to see ligament damage but would be surprised to se him back this season. Looked like he was getting his mojo back last night. Speedy recovery Britt.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2015 10:48:17
Back 4 playoffs ????

Agree1 Disagree1

12 Feb 2015 11:49:55
Was just passing on the text i received last night from someone working at qmc. i'm very glad it was wrong information. let's hope he returns before the end of the season.

Agree0 Disagree0

Cause surely if he had broken it they would of strapped it up in a leg brace on the pitch. But hopefully he can recover quick and come back stronger than ever!

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2015 16:59:57
No chance of broken bones would of been immobilised on the pitch before being stretchered off, if it is a dislocated knee it could be a month out or longer depends if there is any secondary damage, followed by how Britt heals. I for one hope it's not bad and he is a fast healer. Fingers crossed.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2015 17:56:44
I'm more worried about the Cherps that the forest boys are putting on the bird site saying he will come back stronger.that to me says he's going to be out for a while, they don't normally say this when a player gets injured!

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2015 21:10:41
Looks like britt is done for the season nothing confirmed but a few jounos say it

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2015 14:05:12
If you just keep patient there will be an announcement later after he gets his scan results. The club don't know exactly what the damage is until after the scan.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2015 14:09:10
From the club site: Nottingham Forest striker Britt Assombalonga has been ruled out for 12 months following knee surgery.

Agree2 Disagree0

11 Feb 2015 06:01:37
Might be, being really stupid here and it might be obvious. But why if Faulkner resigned is he on Gardner's Leave??
Or is this his notice period?
Or has he actually been given the chop by Fawas for poor performance and he's saving face?

Believable6 Unbelievable10

11 Feb 2015 07:49:30
As with most jobs mate I imagine when he resigned there was a notice period he has to give. Most people obviously work their notice period but obviously fawaz doesn't want him around the club/office finishing his notice. Therefore he goes on what is gardening leave. So he sits at home on full pay for that period. Employment legalities I guess

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Feb 2015 12:03:38
That sounds about right, Keeno. The thing with senior roles in private companies is that - in my experience - they usually carry long notice periods (six months in the last big company I worked for). Faulkner's short tenure may have an impact on his termination terms though.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Feb 2015 17:36:50
If he resigned, there would be no notice period to serve. If anything Forest could pursue repayment of his notice period from him.
Gardening leave is usually used to stop someone going from one place to a competitor with sensitive or useful info (e.g. player dealings, contract issues etc). I would suggest Faulkenor was privvy to some stuff Fawaz doesn't want other clubs or the media to know about. Probably standard for any footbal club.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2015 18:48:44
Kev, think your getting confused mate. of course there is a notice period to serve if he resigned. As there is with the vast majority of jobs. Obviously sacking someone incurs no notice period

Agree0 Disagree0

Not quite Keeno. If he resigned his contract would state a period of notice to give. If he chose not to serve that notice, the club could claim breach of contract and seek the costs back off him. He would certainly not be put on gardening leave.

If i resigned today and didn't come back, there is no way my employer, like most, would pay me for my notice period. Would yours?

Gardening leave is to prevent the passing of any sensitive info the leaver may have about the employer to another employer. Or as a "sweetener" to let someone quietly. But i didn't wanna start any conspiracy theories!

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2015 23:20:42
If there is any general issue around commercially sensitive information and the like, that would need to have been dealt with as a clause in the contract of employment. A confidentially agreement may be reached on termination but, if not dealt with in the employment contract, it would be a separate arrangement and nobody would be under any obligation to sign up to it. Furthermore, as an agreement which, by its nature, places limits on a former employee's future activities, it would probably come at some financial cost. 'Gardening leave' means you're still a paid employee for the duration of your notice period but don't show up at the office as we no longer expect you to carry out your duties and we don't want you poking your nose into our affairs. This means they can't work for anyone else until their time is up without consent and you buy yourself a bit of time for your lawyers to try and tie things up as tightly as they can.

No conspiracy theories from me either but I'll bet Faulkner would have a tale or two worth listening to.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2015 00:02:56
You're missing the point Kev. Quite clearly he has decided that he wants to serve his notice period which is something he is perfectly entitled to do as with any job. However fawaz doesn't want him at the club and as with any other job he is placed on gardening leave and that is what gardening leave is!!!
You're quite right though, if you just walked away from you're job and refused to do your notice period then your employer wouldn't have to pay u. But that's you're choice and therefore gardening leave isn't relevant in that instance. Faulkner quite clearly wants to complete his notice period and why wouldn't he when he is getting paid to put his feet up at home.
Any confidential info you're alluding to would be dealt with under a completely different section of his contract and would relate to when employed and not employed at nffc in any case. On your logic what's to stop him disclosing this 'confidential info' simply when his notice period expires???? But I believe the bloke above explains this in more detail too

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2015 07:00:21
Oh dear me, you guys have all got it so wrong.

Fawaz has clearly let his shrubs etc.get out of control, what with being so busy at the club. PF has been put on gardening leave to make sure all Fawaz lawns and shrubs are kept trim and in shape. When Fawaz is satisfied he will then stop paying him and relieve him of his duties. Unless he does a really fantastic job he may be re-employed as head Groundsman

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Feb 2015 05:57:44
Just as I thought then!
Clear as Mud.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2015 11:35:06
According the the local paper site, our transfer embargo is for a further two transfer windows. Is this correct? Can we really not buy any new players until the the start of the 2016/17 season!?

Believable23 Unbelievable11

10 Feb 2015 13:30:04
Yes - well it's expected to be as we won't make the FFP threshold this year either, except for Free Transfers and Loan Signings

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2015 15:25:35
Would be longer with these rules but the rules change for the 2016/2017 season so that's when it will be lifted, unless we show that we have tried to comply which we havnt really.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2015 19:22:29
To be honest this is the way I see Championship football going. The Premiership Clubs have far to much money to invest in players, The only way for us to compete is to have 4/6 good pro's on our books and the rest made up of our own youngsters coming through from the youth team and Loan players from the Premiership. With that you manage to compete and keep the wage bill down

Agree2 Disagree0

Unless we get promoted to the prem then ffp doesn't count!!!

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2015 22:25:57

If FFP doesn't count then Why are we under embargo
I think what you mean is if we get promotion it will not count, In that case you should look at QPR who look like being in trouble if they get relegated as they breached the rules when they went up

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2015 13:06:24
Is there no way that the embargo can be lifted? It seems a tad harsh.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2015 14:20:29
It strikes me that FFP is to all intent and purpose to
be an unfair 'restriction of trade' and should be removed forthwith.
It is designed to keep the big clubs safe and big and keep all aspiring clubs in their place

Agree0 Disagree0

On BBC web site that the full embargo has been lifted, money paid to Peterborough. Good man Fawaz.

Believable29 Unbelievable1

09 Feb 2015 19:25:32
Yep, but in all fairness it should haven been paid in time in the first place

Fawaz ain't got rich by paying his debts on time, think of the interest on that 1.5 million in his instant access isa account! :-)

We should now ensure Kane and Gardner stay till the summer.

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Feb 2015 20:36:00
Yes and think of the amount of people He still owes money to and the people who think I am not loaning players to them because they don't pay on time

Agree2 Disagree1

09 Feb 2015 22:36:35
Some forest fans make me sick- moaning about this or that should have been paid- we should have bought him or them! Leave Fawas to what he does beat! Agree with previous post- he's made his dollar by being clever. Do you think he is not advised at every level. He was 100% to let SP go - we lost to the bottom of the league! we all know the win ratio!
Get behind the manager- get behind the owner- get behind the team. Did you like div1 football??? because that's were we would have been without Fawas!
Wake up and Be a true red- or don't bother commenting or doing to the CG! - negative fans- who needs em! COYR

{Ed003's Note - moaning as you call it is an opinion people have - It doesn't mean they are a 'true' reds or not, tbh I'm sick to death of posters trying to insult others by saying 'true' or 'real' fans personally I think you should all grow up and accept other people's opinions without ranting over something you would moan about.
I ask a question If Forest had a payment due and it wasn't met and affected your trading would you be upset with said club who had let you down ? I see nothing clever in that myself. #brainwashed.}

Agree6 Disagree1

10 Feb 2015 12:12:11
In the nicest possible way shepshed, reel your neck in a bit and let people have their own opinion. I could comment in depth about what I think of your thoughts but each to their own. U support forest in the way you consider to be 'proper' and allow others to do the same

Agree3 Disagree0

10 Feb 2015 21:21:32
Fair play- just hope the owner doesn't get fed up with it all and pull out ( as he has already states - with all the negativity and moaning when he's pulling a gut to help this club) and then we will be in a real mess.
Then will there be people the. Saying- "well maybe we should have supported him more" ?
I concede that every one should have their own view- hope that fawas is still pumping millions in- hope he doesn't take all the moaning personal-
That's my view.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2015 04:48:53
But then you could argue would this affect future business would other clubs loan or sell to us if we have a reputation for messing about when it comes to paying answer no, if any of us mess about not paying bills or loans it affects our credit score causing problems in the future same principle to me

Agree0 Disagree0

Journo's reporting that we are in for Nick Powell from utd.
Would prefer an out and out centre forward but highly rated by all accounts and could sit off britt up top

I thought we were on a transfer embargo, or has Fawaz now paid up?

08 Feb 2015 10:42:59
This is a rumour I have picked up on, but does seem to have some air of truth.

Paul Faulkner resigned because he wanted to sell three plays in the attempt to even the FFP books and start again next year with Stuart Pearce.

The players I have heard all lined up to be sold on deadline day are;

Lansbury - Gardener brought in to replace

Antonio - Jack Grealish lined up

Assombalonga - This was a big shock.
Does this explain Peterborough Chairman Darragh Macanthony having a cry on deadline day? (most PUFC fans dislike their chairman and consider him a rogue)

A lot of people were going to take their cut from the sell-on and the clauses through sale agreements.

Pearce didn't believe that his squad was up to it behind closed doors and fringed many quality players which had disappointed the dressing room.

Fawaz stepped in because he and his advisers still believed that the Play-Offs are possible and wanted the club to push for it.

Team yesterday can do it.

GK Darlow = bought by NUFC in the summer, seen as a great you talent.
RB Lichaj = on the verge of the USE World Cup team until injury last year.
LB Fox = A proper left back and part of one of the best team in the Championships in the last 5 Yrs, Southampton.
CB Hobbs = Leader of men.
CB Collins = Leggy but bags of experience at many levels.
CM Lansbury = A player wanted by Premiership teams.
CM Gardner = Premiership player.
LCM Osborn = What a talent he is.
RCM Antonio = Wanted by the Premiership.
RCM Burke = A player long admired by many in the Championship.
CF Assombalonga = NFFC have wanted a poacher for years and now we have one.

Teams make luck through hard work

Believable53 Unbelievable23

If Deans' rumour has any substance and SP was a part of it,did he really love Forest as much as he said he did,myself i don't believe he would be that silly to sell class players

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2015 14:59:13
Your assessment of the team is like trailer for a film/TV series, only shows the good parts, Darlow not been that good this season, Lichaj not Inernational class Fox, poor is the only word to describe him, the two CB lack pace, Lansbury not turned up most of the season and seems more intent on getting booked for needless fouls than playing Antonio, hot and cold, Brit gone of the boil, not enough movement, Burke goes missing to often, not seen Gardner (missed two games with flu) Osborne's been good, we have a good Squad, but I look at teams when they come here and think are we any better than them?, Most of them have more pace than us in midfield and get forward in numbers and back quicker than us, therefore can't see us making up 13 points and passing six teams. By the way this will cost me money, so hope I'm wrong, lol

Agree2 Disagree1

08 Feb 2015 15:21:59
If this is true then the CEO would only be doing his job. It is his responsibility to keep to FFP if possible and doing the above if all were sold for reasonable money. Lansbury 3 mill Antonio 3 mill Britt 5 mill Then IMO sell them as I think we need to be out of embargos as soon as possible. We have to stop living beyond on means, If we have to be an average championship side for 2/3 years so be it let's build for the future.

Agree2 Disagree2

09 Feb 2015 06:12:33
I think we could sell Antonio & Henri and get away with it. But could we sell Brit and get a quality replacement out of the bargain bucket?? Not likely.
We need to avoid the same trap, that we always fall into, sell for good money because we can get better for less. Most of the time truly, we can't.
I'll be honest, can't really remember but who did we splash the cash on, on the sale of;
Keane 3. 6
Walker 7. 0
Stan 8. 5
JJ 5. 0
Reid & Daws 7. 5.
Not saying that players are irreplaceable but we need to have a player in the wings or deal done just waiting to be signed.
We've been crying out for a striker for years. We now have one and everyone wants to off load.

Agree0 Disagree1

09 Feb 2015 09:15:48
We didn't splash the cash, It went into the big hole that was Nottm Forest at the time no control over the accounts due to poor management (not on the field)

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2015 12:18:15
Trickie,
not sure if my memory serves me well but I believe the sale of Keane and Clough is probably the last time we used the money wisely - Colin Cooper, Lars Bohinen, Stan Collymore.
when we sold Stan we brought PVH and Kevin Campbell - good signings. thereafter I think we sold all theothers you mention to stave off an impending financial implosion. he rot at Forest set in with sale of Kevin Campbell, we've never got back on track since PVH went on strike and we were relegated from the PL. We're not alone though are we Sheff Weds, Leeds etc.

I still believe our best opportunity lay with the Paul Hart team. Jenas, Williams, Prutton, Dawson, Morgan, Harwood, David Johnson, Eugen Bopp, Jack Lester, Louis John, Jim Brennan etc. I feel we could have really built something from those foundations, alas it wasn't to be yet there is a lesson in there as only Jack Lester, Louis John, Brennan & David Johnson were purchases. A quality youth conveyer belt can work wonders in the Championship.

Agree1 Disagree1

09 Feb 2015 12:20:59
sorry and how could I forget Andy Reid in that list as well.

Agree0 Disagree0

Derik Bradshaw is a well known Conspiracy blogger who writes for The Guardian so I assume this post is him?

One small point of detail Selling the 3 Amigo's would not cover the FFP losses especially as Assombalonga would only fetch half of what we paid until someone teaches him how hold the ball up and win headers with his back to goal!

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2015 16:27:04
Cheers 2star.
I agree with your opinion about our best team. 2001/2002 & 2002/2003 (post Cloughie)were a good team being built on youth. Then JJ was sold and it felt like a left footed suite 11 kick in the .
I don't think we would if made automatic when JJ was sold but we would of been a lot stronger.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2015 11:24:56
Lots of rumours doing the rounds on social media regarding a 'good news' announcement after today's match. Personally I will see it to believe it after recent events. Don't like to be sceptical but who can blame us!!! Has anyone else heard anything about this? COYR

I mean this in the nicest possible way Marco!

You are such a day dreamer.

Dreams are what makes sport, I must admit I drifted off while walking the dog wishing that Pearce was still here and we had just won four on the spin! Could have happened, ought to have happened wish it had happened, it didn't happen though Pal and it's time to move on. Pearce leading us to promotion was sadly just a dream.

Agree5 Disagree0

Don't want Pearce any where near the running of the club 😞

07 Feb 2015 22:40:49
Boilerman, take the performances on the pitch aside and Pearce was the best thing to happen to our club for a long time. He put so many things right at the club. Why on earth would u not want him behind the scenes. Pretty poor comment from u I'm afraid

Agree7 Disagree1

07 Feb 2015 22:45:34
You're point is a fair one boilerman but you have to remember he is revered by many and rightly so.

In the fullness of time it will transpire giving him the role was wrong, I understand why we did it and quite honestly I think it had a 50!50 chance of working.

Whatever we think we should now all move on. You'll never change what's been and gone.

Agree0 Disagree0

Marco just likes to see pearce in charge, even if they never win a game. he,d follow forest down to the conference leauge and below.as long as pearce is manager.

Agree1 Disagree0

Whenever a chance comes along to slag off Pearce the same posters can not resist getting in on the action. Give it a rest now. Boring!

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Feb 2015 11:52:39
Half of these posters who slag off Pearce are focused on the now not the future. The changes that Pearce forced Fawaz to make will help the long term of this club. However too many people care about THIS season. If we went up we'd probably come straight back down. I think it would be better to go up next season and have a chance of staying there.

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Feb 2015 13:59:54
Please don't include me in that, Pearce is my absolute hero and always will be. But if we'd have continued as we were the bottom three was realistic. It didn't work - not sure why, luck and timing have played their part as they do in all walks of life.

Pearce is a legend always will be.

Agree2 Disagree0

11 Feb 2015 05:02:13
I love Pearce as much as the next forest fan but there is pattern with his managent of great starts followed by a lot of loses I just as soon as his style was worked out by other teams he has no reply or ability to change things and cope with it I'm aftaid

When Fawaz took it was reported SIr Alex had his ear, this resulted in Darren Fer. being the first favourite for job, the players had their say and SOD was appointed, we were doing quite well and suddenly Darrens God Father was appointed, Alex Mac.
I think if this hadn, t taken place we would now be in a much better place and Fawaz would be a much more popular figure in our fair city!

06 Feb 2015 22:25:46
I have to say that I don't understand the sudden negativity towards Fawaz. He saved us, has poured in millions and made the right decision about Psycho in the end. Will always love Pearce but as a player and legend, not a manager. We have one of the best squads in the division and are under achieving. Freedman is proven at this level, did great at Palace and took Bolton from relegation to top 10 in his first season. Please stop the Fawaz hate or we my risk him just walking away.

Agree8 Disagree0

07 Feb 2015 10:16:05
Fawaz spoke of a iconic manager, DF does not fit this, my own view is that A Mcliesh doesn't fit this either, but he had won championships and managed his national team. he took a break, then said he was ready to return to club management goodbye, Mr O'driscol

Apparently petrescu was offered job first but he turned it down cause of contract negotiations they wouldn't budge on some things says it all if true

Seems he was only offered job until end of the season and he wanted longer.

05 Feb 2015 22:34:18
So why didn't we give him 18 months like they did df I would say there's more to it than that

Agree2 Disagree0

06 Feb 2015 11:01:17
Why does it say it all if we wouldn't budge on some things? That would suggest to me that Petrescu was after something that we felt was unreasonable, in which case it was exactly the right thing to do.

Agree1 Disagree1

06 Feb 2015 13:09:27
He wanted the job for longer than the end of the season. Fair enough but I think it's a good opportunity that Dougie took. If Dougie doesn't do well, he can say 'what do you expect, look at the situation I walked in to', if he does do well he can get a new contract at higher wages or maybe a job somewhere else.

Yes, but its the fact that we get in that position time after time, publically, that is the problem . You do wonder what sort of similar stuff SP had to put up with behind the scenes as well as trying to manage a team. If this is the public chaos, what is the private chaos like?

Fawaz has shown his passion for this club. Not just in the millions he has spent, by giving Pearce much longer in post than most owners would because of his status and because of fawaz's desperation for him to succeed. Anyone calling for his head needs theirs examining. Sure he has been naive. But I truelly believe he wants the best for us. If people think things are bad now wait until he walks. Oblivion beckons. Fawaz is a red. Support him. He will be a legend at our club even more so than Pearce if he succeeds in getting us promoted. The players need to stand up and be counted and the fans need to maintain their support. Df needs it too. COYR

Papers also say if we pay 1.5 mil before the emergency loan window reopens next week then the week full embargo will be lifted

04 Feb 2015 08:48:13
We have had this before, it seems to be the clubs standard practice to pay monies owed when it suits them, rather than when due.

It's been reported 3 or 4 times before that this has happened. The club will probably make the payment the day before we want to make a loan signing.

A poor way to run a business but not something that I can see changing, unless more serious sanctions are forthcoming.
