Based on previous seasons we need around 14 points from the next 39. Essentially we need to draw every game. Or 3 wins 5 draws. Honestly I just don't see it. I know we are only 2/ 3 of the season in and that it is a little early to be pushing the panic button. All the same, if we don't pick up at least 4 from the next three I'd really start to think about League 1.

The Sutton player Deacon's agent say clubs including Forest are interested, next we'll hear Nottingham pork butchers players have agents. no wonder the games in such a state, agents the scurge of modern football - money for nothing.

24 Feb 2017 13:47:37
And to make it worse (unless its changed recently? ) the players agent is paid for by the clubs?
Wahey I've agreed with carlo on something
Must mean its time for a pint :)

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - The agent only gets money when transfers take place. They have never been paid by the clubs.}

I thought it was the club who paid the agent in the transfer/ contract deal? i'm sure agent costs have been listed in the clubs accounts/ expenditure?
If i'm wrong its a first and i'll have to make sure the Mrs doesn't see this :)

{Ed002's Note - That is exactly what I said.}

24 Feb 2017 18:30:28
Oh - when you said agents have never been paid by the clubs I thought you meant they were never paid by the clubs 😊 apart from whenthey are paid by the clubs when a transfer takes place lol.

{Ed002's Note - Either I should have been clearer or you should have been brighter 2tone - if that is your real name.}

24 Feb 2017 20:10:02
Yes you should have been clearer ed 😊 the talk was about an agent, a player, a potential transfer and agents being paid by a club-not sure what you mean about the name though? But saying that I'm not as bright as you 💡.

{Ed002's Note - I appreciate that 2tone.}

Still no DOF or CEO, it has been suggested on this site that this is because of the state of the club's accounts, but surely Fawaz must have been fully aware of the accounts when he said the positions were imminently going to be filled, any thoughts cause Fawaz has now gone quiet and we seem to be in limbo again.

24 Feb 2017 11:48:40
Dont see the point in craving a structure whilst Fawaz is running the show. Gives him more scope to interfere and bring it crashing down.

Until he sells and does one, we're better of praying for a decent manager to come and hold it together.

Agree4 0Disagree

24 Feb 2017 13:51:19
Agree Cjay. It still feels like FAH is having undue influence on who plays and when. We need to survive, and find the right blend of manager and players just to keep our heads above the water.

23 Feb 2017 16:16:55
My faith in human nature has been restored a little by the 81% of fans who want Chris Cohen to be given a new contract. Part of the reason Chris has had such a rough time with injuries is down to the fact that he never gives less than 100% for the team.

Chris is the kind a bloke who will make a brilliant coach too. Forest need people like him in and around the club. What a brilliant example to the academy players. Skill alone will not make you a success in football, dedicated hard work is also required.

What would you say if Fawaz in the summer signed 5 players with Cohen's injury problems.

I know the lad has had a tough time with injuries, no player wants to get injured, but we seem to have turned into a bleeding hearts club.

Agree4 8Disagree

23 Feb 2017 20:25:30
Cohen has given his all enough over the years for us to give him another chance to be in and around the club. he wasn't bought injured with an injury record so that was a bit silly saying if fawaz bought them,
People seem to think that when a player is injured he contributes nothing to the team, someone like Cohen who loves the club and can pass on his knowledge and no how is priceless to the club.

Agree11 0Disagree

23 Feb 2017 20:44:19
A bit silly, he may not have been brought in with a injury record, but he has a injury record.

So please answer the question :

Cohen Does now have a injury record, so if Fawaz brought 5 players with his current games per season in the summer would you say great, 5 hard workers, bargains the Century.

What can he teach anybody, he can not do anything due to his injuries. What was the name of that band years ago that sang Money For Nothing. Probably his favorite group.

Agree1 12Disagree

23 Feb 2017 20:48:17
Giving Chris Cohen a new contract is a no brainer imo. A model pro, gives 100 per cent win draw or lose, great example to the young players and a great leader on and off the pitch. If all the team played like him we wouldn't be in the position we are in. Obviously the medics and physios have a big say and we don't want another Kelvin Wilson situation but Chris being the honest bloke he is would understand that. While we're on contracts likewise Mancienne, Worrall Pinillos. Vaughn not so sure he's turned 34 would he accept pay for play rolling contact probably not. Ward and Hobbes I'd extend bearing in mind we offered Traore 3 years and I haven't seen e n him fit yet. Probably signed to his mate Henri happy! For the long term future get Edser and Cash nailed down and Brereton for next 5 years minimum.

Agree7 1Disagree

23 Feb 2017 21:01:03
If all players played like Cohen we would not be able to field a team for 50 games of every season, including Cup Competitions that is.

This is the trouble, when a player is a nice bloke, and works hard, when he plays he is seen as a irreplaceable even though he is replaced for all but a few games every season.

Agree0 5Disagree

23 Feb 2017 21:02:27
I have always said get rid of all the injury prone players.

Agree1 9Disagree

Get rid, we are not a charity for injured players, replace with someone who can actually get on the pitch.

Agree3 5Disagree

23 Feb 2017 22:20:54
Tomorrow the vast majority of teams don't get 50 games a season out of any player who's not a goalkeeper what with suspensions and the pace of modern day football. The days of Cloughie winning the league with 15 players are long gone. I guess cortisone injections patched them up week after week with horrendous results when they retired. Anyway I'd take 25 games a season from Cohen perhaps 30 with proper management for his workrate and leadership example. I could see him doing a holding midfielder job when Vaughn finishes rather than a box to box all action player. It's all down to special management for a special player ie different role and/ or training regime. I always think of McGrath at 80 s Man Utd or Dave McKay at 70 s Derby both carried numerous injuries.

So true wish we had a squad with his attitude really hope he gets a new contract 👍.

The hypocrisy of constantly pulling Fawaz up on his poor decision making then giving Chris Cohen another contract purely based on sentiment ain't lost.

Agree0 1Disagree

24 Feb 2017 13:17:12
Like Marco says, he'll struggle to get a decent contract anywhere else with his injury record so Forest could easily offer him a contract with a reduced basic wage and a fair pay-as-you-play clause.

He deserves it. His commitment, experience and enthusiasm are invaluable and who knows what kind of coach or manager he could become further down the line. Sign him up.

Agree3 0Disagree

24 Feb 2017 13:34:32
It's not hard to just offer him a 1year extension and say if you play 35 games from now until its runs out after that we can give you another year.
Chat I understand what your saying but giving Cohen a new contract for a year has more benefits to it than just his playing time. he's seen and played with the youth set up and I would imagine he's given out some sound advice to the youngest kids and showed them what you have to be like to make itbin this game.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 Feb 2017 14:56:56
The charity for players that can't even honour their contracts and actually play for us needs to stop now. Cohen, vaughan, hobbs and fryatt need to leave the club asap.

Also, yes i agree cohen does give 100% when fit. But 100% or not, he's not actually that good!

Cut the deadwood and try some young talent from league 1 that want to work for a club and prove themselves.

Surely Gary Brazil was heavily involved in the signing of Zach Clough so why the dickens isn't he playing him? On Saturday in the second half the game was crying out for him to come on and unpick the Wednesday defence but, no, let's have Kasami instead.

Really hope Mancienne is fit asap. When he's out of the team it becomes blindingly obvious what a decent player he is.

McCormac can nit score from the penalty spot, so what does it matter.

21 Feb 2017 13:41:32
I for one would not miss him, I thought it was a pointless loan when Britt is fit and ready to get us goals, just a waste of money paying 35K a week of his wages.

Agree4 6Disagree

21 Feb 2017 15:10:54
McCormacks top drawer at this level. 35k is alot, but if it secures Championship status, then its money well spent.

McCormack ain't just about goals, he's the link man in the last third.
Wasnt great Saturday, but he's too much quality not to come good.

Risky move pinning your hopes on Clough or Osborn to provide the service to the front men.

Agree17 1Disagree

21 Feb 2017 15:19:45

Saying he has too much quality not to come good is like saying we are too good to go down.

You still have to put the effort in, and prove you have what it takes.

21 Feb 2017 19:34:02
As I have said before Fawaz signs players to try to impress the fans JJ was the first brought in without the managers knowledge. He has all the Foreign Legion we recruited in the summer and then decides McCormack is what we require. He needs someone stop him wasting money. Even his Family are unable to stop it with stopping his allowance. It just goes from bad to worse.

Agree1 3Disagree

21 Feb 2017 19:37:53
McCormack has scored over 100 goals in the championship. He has already scored for us. He missed a penalty, so what?

Show me a striker who hasn't.

The Sheffield Wednesday keeper did a good job. Made us wait, put the pressure on. Very professional. That is what experience can do.

21 Feb 2017 21:06:01
I can't actually believe I'm seeing people saying they'd get rid of McCormack, in the last 5 years he has been one of the best players in the Championship, and because he missed a penalty I see people saying he's rubbish and we should get rid of him. I am genuinely blown away by the stupidity on here. No player even gets a chance at our club because the minute they join and make a mistake they get hounded by the fans. Unreal.

21 Feb 2017 22:30:38
V1P3R your right, same moaning folk. Nearly every player at Forest this season is guilty of earning too much. Instead of worrying about how much we pay good players I would be more worried about how much we are paying the dross that PM sanctioned - Bendtner, Dumitru, Lica, Lam etc.

Agree4 0Disagree

22 Feb 2017 09:23:35

My point as you very well know is :

We have had some quality players leave us that and i pointed to Antonio as a example.

If McCormac was as good as some in here blindly think he would not be on loan to a Championship club, he be playing in the Premiership.

Agree1 6Disagree

22 Feb 2017 09:31:51

I wa one of the people that said Bendtner should not have been brought in when it was announced he was joining us.

All i got was stick, i was told how i was idiot for saying such a quality player would not be good for us.

I get stick for saying get All the injury prone players off the books because they are quality players.

Some people can not see past reputations, and players being nice people.

Agree1 7Disagree

22 Feb 2017 11:11:38
Tomorrow that's like saying Jordan Rhodes was sold from a Prem club to a Championship club, so now he's not one of the best strikers in the league anymore? You're talking nonsense.

22 Feb 2017 11:34:58
At the end of the day mccormack as come in and probably put the best forward in the championship on the bench assombongola for what the bloke can't even score from the penalty spot unlike bogle who we could of got for peanuts again and again money wasted on names we don't need names we need battlers like Brereton players that play for there shirt and not the ridiculous 35 grand a week some players are getting because they are has beens these players will get us relegated mark my words and do you think they will be bothered no because they will go back to there own club at the end of the season and carry on collecting there pay why the rest of the young hungry players and the forest team and fans look forward to playing Leyton orient etc.

Agree6 6Disagree

22 Feb 2017 16:00:02
People just can't see it skegs If we had paid a million for Bogle He would have a great signing and would have increased in value over the next few years, instead we pay 35k a week fa striker on loan who will go back to his parent club and leave us having paid out 700.000 for his services
Fawaz needs to employ an accontant.

Agree7 2Disagree

22 Feb 2017 19:29:54
But we haven't got Bogle so why are you going on about him? If we got Messi he'd score from the penalty spot too. But we've got who we've got, two of the best strikers in the league, plus a young striker hungry to play. Yet some of you just want any excuse to moan about ifs and buts. A few months ago we had no strikers and couldn't score a goal, now we have people fighting for their places.

Agree3 0Disagree

22 Feb 2017 20:20:19
VIP3R just read the post again. I said we could have bought him and we would have paid about the same amount as we have to loan McCormack, SO if you think about it we would own a player who's value will increase but instead we loan a player pay stupid wages to another club and He still not belong to us.
A bit like buying your house or renting it.

Agree2 1Disagree

22 Feb 2017 21:08:23
Your assuming 78 that he wanted to come here in the first place, can't blame him for not wanting to. If he did want to and we did sign him then great, but he hasn't come, move on.

Agree1 3Disagree

22 Feb 2017 21:54:11
Ginger I am not assuming anything. just pointing out the money spent on McCormack's wages could have bought you a player like Bogle.

Agree2 1Disagree

23 Feb 2017 00:39:43
So ginger why would a player with mccormacks so called fire power big name like him according to a few on here would want to come to forest and a bloke like bogel cheap not want to come I tell you why easy money for McCormack and the rest of the so called big names lol not hard to work out if you think about it properly.

Agree2 1Disagree

23 Feb 2017 10:17:53
Skeg you don't even know if Forest made an offer, so how can Bogle not want to come if we didn't even offer him anything?

Agree1 1Disagree

23 Feb 2017 10:53:57
78, you could say that about any player we have loaned or bought though mush. I think it's called 'opportunity cost'.

I don't see the point of banging on about a player that has already signed for someone else and may not have even wanted to come in the first place.

McCormack fell out with his gaffer and can move just down the road for game time at Forest till the end of the season, he would have been paid whether he moved or not, its not rocket science. Villa have a habit of turning good players crap.

Skeg, Forest isn't the centre of the universe, you seem surprised he (Bogle) may not have wanted to come:) Maybe phone and ask him why he didn't come here, at the end of the day he hasn't so what's the point in keep whinging about it. It's like the DF thing, if you don't like something your a broke record mate, your supposed to be a Grandad but cry like a baby.

After the season we've had and with all that's gone/ going on upstairs I'm surprised Clough even joined us.
