ARMAND TRAORE has signed 3 year deal. NEP.

Believable4 Unbelievable0

29 Jul 2016 14:21:58
Montanier clearly has a plan. Width using full backs, passing it out of defence. If he can gain success from this using budget players and shipping out the high earners, he'll go down as a genius.

Agree3 Disagree2

29 Jul 2016 14:36:13
Premiership here we come lol.

Agree2 Disagree3

29 Jul 2016 15:14:16
He's clearly got Premier League pedigree but I remember him being one the higher earners at QPR and underachieving players. Hope he plays like he did as a promising youngster at Arsenal.

Agree3 Disagree0

29 Jul 2016 19:17:15
He might be able to reignite his career at Forest, if he can stay fit. His injury record doesn't make promising reading, but clearly PM feels he can get the best out of him. Good luck Armand.

Agree3 Disagree2

29 Jul 2016 07:16:01
Hearing Andy Reid has left the club having retired from football, great player and club servant in the past. Good luck Reidy.

Believable11 Unbelievable1

29 Jul 2016 11:02:31
Great player who will be sadly missed, especially that left foot that could land the ball on a postage stamp!

Agree9 Disagree2

29 Jul 2016 14:04:14
Andy Reid to me epitomises how a true professional behaves and performs. Yeah, he had times where he could have let his head drop (especially the jibes re his weight) , but he just knuckled down and got on with it. Reidy had one of the best creative gifts in football and some of his play was absolutely sublime to watch.
A great icon for the club and I hope he goes on to great things. Cheers Reidy. some great memories you have given us.

Agree4 Disagree0

29 Jul 2016 16:00:49
Find it very sad that some people are saying good riddance to Reidy and calling him a fat scrounging git because he didn't immediately take himself off the wage bill when he got injured .

Agree9 Disagree0

30 Jul 2016 00:00:58
Fantastic player. Cross, set piece, creativity, passing, vision all things forest lack since reidy last played!

Agree2 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 16:41:24
Just heard we've agreed a deal to sign armand troare (left back) former arsenal n qpr.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

28 Jul 2016 17:09:20
Which must really confuse the Fox Fan Federation seen here only a few days ago.

Agree0 Disagree3

28 Jul 2016 17:12:36
Pillinos is not fit to start the season, he will act as cover on cheap wages if accepted.

Fox will be used as centre back/ cover due to possible transfer outs by mills and Mancienne .

Agree3 Disagree3

28 Jul 2016 17:31:08
Anybody who thinks Traore is here to tide us over until Pinillos is fit are being very naive.

Agree4 Disagree7

28 Jul 2016 17:58:02
Absolutely garbage when he was at QPR. Overpaid rubbish.

Agree3 Disagree6

28 Jul 2016 17:58:35
I think mills is a cert to start with Lam Mancien I rate but could go we still have to balance the books and will be a top earner.

Agree0 Disagree3

28 Jul 2016 18:04:07
Fox is banned first 3 games.

Agree2 Disagree3

28 Jul 2016 18:31:54
In defence:
LICHAJ Hobbs mills MANCIENNE lam fox PINILLOS traore worrall perquis

Out I expect will be:
Mills Hobbs
(LICHAJ I saw was being watched by sheff wed)

Defence at start of season will look like: LICHAJ MANCIENNE lam traore
Bench: perquis fox

Full strength defence (not in my opinion but in PM opunion) :
lichaj MANCIENNE LAM PINILLOS

would like LICHAJ sold for a highish fee due to his long contract. Was hoping traore could play right back but may play pereira there.

I'd go for: PEREIRA MANCIENNE MILLS PINILLOS as full strength.

Agree2 Disagree9

28 Jul 2016 18:57:59
HFTF - Lam and Mancienne are both "covering" Centre Backs. You can't play them both together. Defensive pairings always have a Hobbs/ Mills/ Perquis as the "Stopper".

Just hope for all our sakes that Pinillos isn't out for too long with his knee.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 19:53:08
Hereford etc. How do you know what Montannier's opinion is?

Agree5 Disagree1

28 Jul 2016 20:32:19
How can you give an opinion on players I guarantee you've never heard of.

Agree2 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 21:07:07
Because HFTF has been playing all the permutations on Championship Manager? Haha!

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 21:14:46
RedInExile - Haha TOUCHÉ!

Agree1 Disagree1

28 Jul 2016 22:30:43
Definitely expect a few faces to be shown the door. Seems to me PM is very much getting the squad together that he wants rather than tweak what's already there. But risky having a new defence to try and gel only days before the season starts?

Agree0 Disagree1

29 Jul 2016 00:10:59
Think our defence will look like this if troare signs. 352
Devries
Mills. Manchienne. Hobbs/ lam
Vaughen
Pereira. Lansbury. Osbourne. Troare.
Velios Britt.

Agree1 Disagree2

29 Jul 2016 00:24:08
Lots of talk of Mills and Mancienne being offered out to other clubs to cut costs/ cash in, so difficult for HFTF to claim Mance is PM's first choice.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2016 06:40:03
I really hope mancienne doesn't leave, best defender we have IMO, would be a big mistake. Troare is a good signing for free but why do we need him. Fox, pinillos, Cohen can play left back and now troare. Seems a bit excessive when we're talking about getting rid of one or two centre backs to balance the books.

Agree1 Disagree0

29 Jul 2016 07:03:53
3 at the back would be such a gamble - not to say I wouldn't like to see it tried however. I'd be surprised not to see us actually play with wingers as we've not tried that shape all pre-season and both Osborne and Burke have played well there.

If Antonis, our Greek informant, is right then we're looking at someone now who can play upfront/ on the wing.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 14:51:15
Does anybody know if Gardner is still a target? Or if anything is in the pipeline with him? I think we'd all love to see him back at The City Ground.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

28 Jul 2016 14:59:08
I liked Gardner too, but I think we have moved on from him now and seem to be going in a different direction on the playing side.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 16:33:39
Thunk we are just signing foreigners at rhe moment.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 17:13:15
Does Montannier even know who Gardner is? Before anybody says PM would have watched the videos from last season I hope that's true as if he has there's no way he would sign him. Ship sailed, move on.

Agree6 Disagree1

28 Jul 2016 23:02:24
No thanks on the Gardner front, added nothing last time around.

Great attitude though and wish him well.

Agree2 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 17:38:29
heard Pajtim Kasami is linked via greek reports.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

27 Jul 2016 17:49:25
The greek journo whose been spot on with all 5 signings says nothing happining in press or other sources on this .

Agree0 Disagree1

27 Jul 2016 17:57:38
Antonis? Sounds more like looking into it.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 20:00:52
Kasami isn't starting or on the bench tonight and he's been put on the transfer list by Olympiakos.

Would be a surprise to see him come for anything less than €3m.

Agree0 Disagree1

27 Jul 2016 20:18:46
Cracking player! Would love kasami. Spend almost 4 years at Fulham and looked good.

Agree2 Disagree2

27 Jul 2016 21:17:25
Not involved for olmpiakos tonight and rumoured to be in england talking to 3 championship clubs. Could do with 2 signings to lift the spirits at the moment.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 14:59:44
Not sure if this one will come off, but you never know with the Olympiakos link.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2016 07:17:48
We have a great chance to make the playoffs this season. Come on you Reds!

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 15:42:21
expect mills and maybe MANCIENNE to leave before the season starts. Money takes over sometimes when you need it.

Believable1 Unbelievable7

27 Jul 2016 16:36:17
I hope not, always liked Mancienne's quality.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 16:53:08
I fully expect Mills to leave, but someone has said we will only get £600,000 for him.

Mancienne unless he has expressed a intent to leave i think will stay as he has the versatility our manager wants. I do not think we would get as much as it would cot to replace him.

Agree1 Disagree1

27 Jul 2016 16:57:10
To be fair to mills i thought he was one of our best players last season and should of been captain, we need a few more like him that play with a bit of passion.

Agree5 Disagree1

27 Jul 2016 18:36:16
Yeah, at one stage he was our leading scorer! Nearly scored a hat trick, could be wrong maybe it was against Reading🤔🤔.

Agree1 Disagree1

27 Jul 2016 19:11:18
Mills has started most of our pre-season games where it's seemed we're trying to find a settled back 4.

On the wages he is, I'd be surprised to see him leave. If anything, I'd wager we'd give him a year's contract extension on a few more quid.

Agree5 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 15:00:59
I don't expect Mills to go, but I could see Mancienne or Hobbs leaving, which would sadden me, but we don't want a bloated squad. If we can get good money for either of them it has to be good business. Personally I would keep Mancienne out of the two as he is more versatile.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 14:17:01
heard a lot of things around mills leaving to free up some wages (apparently he's on huge wages) this mainly came from that idiot nixon so i decided to do some digging and found that his wages are no more than £10,000 a week as this was the cap forest had been resricted to by ffp at the time of him signing.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

27 Jul 2016 15:02:39
Yes Mills signed for us while we were under the embargo and are wage cap was £10,000 a week. Same with Jamie Ward.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 16:24:36
Only 10 grand a week. He must struggle to get by.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 18:37:03
Yeah mate, must be terrible!

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 19:08:58
I'd be less shocked to see Hobbs leave to be honest. Great player when he's fit but has struggled too much with injuries of late.

It's a shame but it may pave the way for him to find a new club. Purely me speculating of course.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 20:42:42
I hope miss dosent leave, just got him on the back of my shirt😂.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 10:15:52
Who's "miss" mate? Lol! Don't worry, i've been guilty of that too! 😀😀😀.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 12:25:30
Mills did come on 10k a week but I wonder if there was an agreement in place that when we come out embargo his wage went up?

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2016 00:29:20
Agree with 1985 - or Mills has a long contract like Ward meaning he coasts with us for a couple of years, injurred. Mancienne best CB at the club but on massive money we can ill afford.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2016 13:29:53
Fox has signed for an extra year.

Believable6 Unbelievable1

25 Jul 2016 14:58:39
I don't understand why we've gave him an extension.

Agree6 Disagree6

25 Jul 2016 15:07:03
because after having a bad spell under DF, he has had word with himself and proved he can be a useful member of the squad who can play either left back or centre half. Simple really.

Agree10 Disagree6

25 Jul 2016 15:46:57
As harsh as it might sound, I don't think Fox is good enough to be in our side.

Agree6 Disagree5

25 Jul 2016 16:12:05
LDN Red

You can't have been watching his recent run in the side, he has not put a foot wrong. Him and Ben Osborn play well together on the left.

Agree4 Disagree4

25 Jul 2016 16:15:16
Fox contract is a no brainer. He can cover two positions is very experienced in this League and got promotion with Saints.

We need someone to slot straight into the team until DP returns to full fitness and avoids signing another full back trying to fit into a new look back 5!

Agree6 Disagree3

25 Jul 2016 19:42:15
He seems like a player who needs an incentive to play well consistently so why renew his contract early. Should have renewed it new season if he plays well this season, if not, let him go.

Agree1 Disagree4

25 Jul 2016 23:21:13
Isn't fox one of the higher earners.
Cohen can cover left back better. Don't need fox.
Pinnilis will be back soon. I'd fetch jokic back on loan.

Agree5 Disagree3

26 Jul 2016 07:14:24
Marco - I couldn't agree more. We have so many quality centre backs already. At left back we have Pinillos and Cohen who can cover there very effectively.

Agree2 Disagree2

26 Jul 2016 08:24:52
Pinnillosis still a long way off.

Agree5 Disagree3

26 Jul 2016 12:59:54
Disagreeing doesn't make it not so. Do your homework, he is no where near yet!

Agree3 Disagree6

26 Jul 2016 17:40:51
Idiots.

Agree4 Disagree3

26 Jul 2016 18:10:45
Fox is a good squad man and like a few others will play better under a better manager. His confidence was shot but with his history he will be good for us. For once I kind of agree with KB.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jul 2016 20:34:27
And disagreeing is completely allowed 163. Healthy discussion brings us together.

Personally, I've seen few perform worse at LB in recent years. He's a high earner who happily filled in for a short period. If a the season was 5 games long then Fox would've been one of our best players - thankfully it's not. A player should be judged on consistency over a season, not a few games.

Only my opinion, but I'm not sure we actually needed him around.

Agree2 Disagree0

26 Jul 2016 20:38:35
Pinillos is also just over a month away according to reports in the NEP. Worst case scenario he'll be with us by game 5/ 6.
We could've allowed Fox to continue playing without giving him a new contract, maybe?

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2016 20:47:00
If Fox can play week in, week out, to the same standard as he did, albeit before getting sent off, against MK in the last game of last season then he will be s big positive because he can play in a number of positions but as for Mancienne he adds something the others can't and must be kept at all costs! On his day a class player!

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 13:58:43
Was Jokic really much better in his loan spell then fox when he played end of season?

Not really, Fox put in a couple of man of the match displays across the back.

Jokic won't be coming back.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 16:01:32
Actually the NEP says Pinillos weeks away before he even starts full training and that they will not rush him back because of the nature of the injury.

Agree3 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 19:07:11
Which makes his return exactly when I said he would? Game 5 or 6 - not forgetting there is an international break too.

Like it or lump it, we only really saw what Fox can do over the course of 5 games . This will be his 3rd season if I'm not mistaken!

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 17:26:12
The sixth game is in four weeks and he won't be in it. Sounds like we're about to sign another left back which is interesting, especially now Fox has just signed for another year.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2016 08:53:08
Apparently after a guy from Liverpool on loan, Cameron Brannagon. Plays as a number 10 apparently.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

25 Jul 2016 10:04:33
Where did you hear that mate?

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Jul 2016 10:45:06
haven't heard the link with forest but heard liverpool want a clause as part of the deal where if he doesn't play 75% of games they can fine the club.

Agree1 Disagree1

25 Jul 2016 11:37:13
We should change it so if he isn't good enough to play 75% of the games for us we can counter fine them. Loans are two way deals and should benefit both parties - i'm sure these clauses do go into some contracts but its crazy.

Agree3 Disagree0

25 Jul 2016 12:34:20
Heard forest are one of 10 clubs interested on a season loan, I think Bristol city are favourites though.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2016 12:43:45
Said he was going to Wigan not forest. Read it yesterday but can't remember where!

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2016 15:49:36
I'm not sure there's anything in this rumour. Actually wouldn't say no to Johnny williams coming back again after his Euros.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2016 16:25:02
Surely we do not want a 20 year old novice on loan as our chief playmaker?

We need to sign a new McKenna type to allow our existing youngsters to play with more freedom?

Agree3 Disagree0

22 Jul 2016 16:07:39
Damien Perquis signing confirmed - 2 year contract. 3rd signing imminent.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

22 Jul 2016 16:38:00
Henderson signed.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Jul 2016 12:30:12
I doubt Perquis will take many prisoners.

Agree2 Disagree0
