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!

Very much doubt he'll be dropping down to the championship. The lad is quality on his day just needs a fresh challenge, my money's on a move back to france or Italy. Would probably walk into the Man United team right now :)

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

Would make Assombalonga look an absolute snip at £5million ish if McGoldrick is worth £8million after half a decent season at Ipswich!!

As a loan signing, Hunt. One of the best right backs at Forest for a long time. As far a perm signings. It would be a toss up between Burke and Macienne. It's early days though!

£8m for a striker who scored more than every single one of our players last year despite missing half a season lols. He's far better than the treatment some of our fans gave him

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.

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

Best signing stuart pearce and his backroom staff

Redeye Redeye

(0)

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!!

Mancienne for me shows the qualities of a real professional, these big time charlies who want to go to a big team. MM rolled his sleeves up to prove himself not too big for the game and he really has a good engine.

They've all been great signings and during the season will have big parts to play, but for me at the moment it's Mancienne, he's been the difference between drawing or losing one or two games this season

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.

Ed034{Ed034's Note - we didn't let him leave, as we offered him a new contract. He chose to leave. Find it odd on his side to leave a club where he has just settled in, who have a plan for his future and then go to have to do this all again.

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.

Reports he was not offered a new contract by Forest.
Have we lost another Bamford?

Redinexile Redinexile

Ed034{Ed034's Note - no because if we wanted to keep him, we would have offered one. ive heard we have offered but he chose to more

(1)
(0)

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

Ed, I thought if we had offered him a new contract and he signed for another team, we'd be due compensation as he is under 24. This is being reported as a free.

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

Solid, decent appointment but has a reputation in the game as "yes" man.

His main strengths are his ability to generate commercial revenues - pretty important cog when it comes to fighting financial fair play.

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. Apparently very highly regarded by renowned no-nonsense control-freak Martin O'Neill and he's young for a role like this too (which I like).

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. He is a cracking player easily the best right back in this league and just the type of player for us. As optimistic as I am though I'm sure palace will be watching him closely and his performances won't go unnoticed.

I posted that we should be looking at securing his services permanently if he's available on the OS a week ago; very accomplished player and adds that extra dimension to the team. Hopefully we can arrange a permanent deal for him at some point in his Forest career.

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.

Don't see why they needed him in the first place, they have Tim krul who is a great keeper and also their own young keeper rob Elliot who has played well when selected.

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?

Trickie23 Trickie23

Ed034{Ed034's Note - heard nothing of the sort

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.

Dave L

(2)

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?

Ed034{Ed034's Note - why wouldn't they??

I wonder if its more a case of having first option on him if they send him out on loan again, kind of like some deals where you have first option to buy a player back if the club decide to sell.

We should not have sold Darlow but if we go up. We will probably buy him back for double what we sold him for.

Ed034{Ed034's Note - we sold him to fund assombolonga and Antonio.

That's not happening unless agreed at the season end. plus the clown who said Krul's a liability either doesn't understand what a goalkeeper does or doesn't understand football fullstop!

Can see Krul moving on next season and Darlow may just be the Newcastle number 1.

BigNorm

Ha ha ha. Tim Krul Is better than Joe Hart! What a muppet.

So there is a buy back clause, only If we get promoted and Is worth more than the value we sold both players for.

Marko99. We don't need any more midfielders or strikers. In midfield we have depth. As CMs, we have: Reid, lansbury, vaghan, Osborn, Cohen, mancienne can play there, leigertwood, German guy, McLaughlin. As wingers, we have: Antonio, Paterson, Burke, McLaughlin, fryatt can play there, we still have abdoun if all fails!

I agree with Ryan, let's bring through young Tyler, at least he is committed to Forest. We have Dex coming back and Ok he has not scored since he signed that long contract, but could be good coming off the bench. There is also big lars, once adjusted could be frightening! Bamford may have just been catching up with friends, but sorry he had the chance to play first team football with Forest, if he had been patient. He has burnt that bridge, I do hold a grudge and I can be bitter when it comes to turncoats, just look at McGeady and McCarthy!

I would rather we develop and increase the value of Forest players not Chelsea ones. Blackstock will be worthless in the transfer market without games.

Forest05

99. 9% of the time it doesn't pay off to chase a keeper, most keepers have composure, IMO it's better to stick to the law of averages and just pressure the keeper if he's taking his time but don't go too far otherwise you are a player down when it comes to the next phase. Just stick to marking short passes because long ones are less accurate.

Do think need a striker and Bamford can also play wide so would give us that option too, get him on loan until January would be pretty good as will give Dex time to get fitness up to level again, think every other position is sorted.

Yes I do prefer Dex. Fawaz did not offer him a 4 year deal for no reason. Also potential is something that becomes fulfilled AFTER the player develops. IF we do the developing he won't be our player when that hapens. Far better to have Tyles 5th choice behind Dexter and increase Dex value and develop Tyler.

Forest have appointed Kevin MacDonald, the former Aston Villa under-21 manager, to their coaching staff.

The Scotsman, who has been working behind the scenes at the club all summer and led the recent training camp in Valencia, will coach the club's under-18 side.

I watched my local team underwood villa play forest u18 in a friendly at bracken park underwood in July. The forest squad were coached by Steve Sutton Kevin McDonald and jack lester, Nigel jemson was also with them but I think his lad was playing for forest as a trialist so probably just watching rather than being involved. Incidentally forest were awesome, winning 12-1 whilst playing with ten men to try to balance it up a bit!

If Blackstock is expected to recover then we won't need Bamford. Blackstock is proven at this level (don't forget he was given a four year contract and was on form not so long ago).

Is it just me or do some reds have a short memory. Blackstock is a great third/fourth choice striker at this level. what is the point developing players for other teams when we can increase the value of our own. We have Tyler Walker too. OIf we bring in Bamford and Blackstock is fit how will youth ever get the experience?

Blackstock hasn't played for the best part of 4 years, we all respect dex but well leave it to Pearce to judge whether or he's good enough or not.

Securing Lansbury is our best bit of business so far in my opinion. Closely, and I do mean closely, followed by Burke, Antonio and Assombalonga in equal joint second place.

With everyone fit, I think SP will have a headache he'll like having in trying to choose a starting XI. The way I see it, it's a very strong and competitive squad.

Dex not played for the best part of 4 years!? He's played nearly 100 games in the last 4 years lol His last appearance was in November 2013, only 9-months ago- 4-years!? : /

I think Dex should be given the chance to regain fitness and become part of the squad again. He's more than good enough to be 4th choice. Perhaps with a new manager, new playing style and new opportunity we can see him contribute again. If not, get him fit and move him on.

I tend to agree with a lot of what Red Cyclist has said. Good post.

His agent stated that there was no way he was signing another contract so expect a buy out clause in the contract. As soon as he starts performing again his buyout value will start getting hawked around in January!

Football finances are like monopoly, totally unrelated to real life, but in the context of crazy football money, that's £1.3m very well spent. If he has a key role in getting us promoted then that's a £100m+ Coming our way next season. Great move all round and shows our ambition as a club.

I wouldn't say he is a DM, perhaps a deep-lying playmaker but not really a defensive-minded player.

He's like a poor-mans, latter-day, Paul Scholes. Decent ability and range of passing but not enough clinical end product. He's not far off being Tom Cleverley, to be honest!

You never know, these slow-paced, Pirlo-esque players sometimes take a bit longer to mature and impose themselves but I agree that on most of the viewings I've seen of him he doesn't do enough.

Ed034{Ed034's Note - looking at the wrong pages. He's was villa favs focal point, as they were not happy with either the team nor the owner. He did a good job, the manager was sad to see him go and is hugely respected within the game.

The Villa fans suspected it was Faulkner that chose their managers, that's the main reason they aimed their anger at him.

This was posted on a site relating to Villa as they try to get the guy from Arsenal called Tom Fox. "Faulkner left his position last month and could now be installed at Nottingham Forest after he was spotted at their match against Bournemouth last night. and
"Although Lerner and Faulkner have worked closely together for many years, with the latter involved in a variety of roles in the former’s many businesses, the two have now gone their separate ways. It follows a failure to reach an agreement on Faulkner’s future as the club claim, via a statement, he had hoped to “re-engage with Lerner’s broader business while remaining involved with Villa in a non-operational role”.

Cannot see it. They do not have a Manager.

Don't need a manager to sign players, might be caretakers recommendation also.

What happens then when the new manager is appointed, and does not want him. It will then have been a pointless exercise.

Keep him here-we need guys like him to help with injuries- and really do we have anyone else if we get our squad cut down with injuries Collins has done a good job when called upon.

yegff7f

Ed034{Ed034's Note - we have Hobbs, mancienne, lascelles, Wilson, Laing, Riera and Fox who can all play cb.
The guys wages are too much for a fifth/sixth choice cb and it's not fair on the guy to keep him here for that.

Snoggy

Well they have a few old forest dogs now maybe trying to replicate the poison dwarfs top 6 squad by buying a duplicate forest squad lol they do seem to have a fondness with forest players.

He won't be going anywhere. Be in my first choice back 4 everyday. Hobbyl's was so keen to move to forest and since that he's barely played due to injury so don't think we're going to sell him anytime soon unless it's a serious offer to good to refuse.

Totally agree, it is very laughable, but need cheering up with rubbish day I'm having. Ed didn't hobbs sign a lengthy contract in January? What makes them think they've got any hope. Bob hope and envelope, lol.

ginsterboyred

Ed034{Ed034's Note - signed for four and a half years on very good money

Fully understand speculation round him. Class act. This won't happen though.

I will drive him myself

They ain't exactly flush with money either, so no way this will happen

Ed034{Ed034's Note - just been taken over but the new owners have said not to expect big transfer fees

Maybe just an attempt to unsettle the player before our game with Reading, don't think we should fall for that old trick. Nigel Adkins is definately no Alex Ferguson.

Non starter this one, no way are we letting JH go after all the shenanigans getting him here and with the best part of a 4 year contract left this better be astronomically silly money to even open negotitions. JH will definately be playing with a tree stuck on his chest for the near to mid term future.

I laughed at this rumour when I first read it, but then I thought what if Forest are having some kind of problem with FFP and maybe Reading have got wind of it and have decided to try their luck? Maybe I'm just being paranoid. I hope there's no truth in it.

Ed034{Ed034's Note - we wouldn't have just spent £6.5m if we had a problem

Don't think he'd be interested in going to a smaller club anyway. Much smaller it seems regardless if they've been in the EPL more recently than us.

They have more chance of being relegated Reading are a joke he chose us over them last January

Just checked out a few other rumours pages, rubbish compared to ours. Good job Nottingham ED. Readings being one of them. Jog on Hobbs is a red.

He's a top rate centre half. Why shouldn't they bid for him. We want our club to be in for top players so I'm sure they do to. Won't happen but can't whinge about them being interested

In the Berkshire local rag, apparently no bid been placed for Hobbs! Maybe the offer was thrown back at them and gone all embarrassed!

Of what I've heard from a couple of Reading lads is that they can't afford the bog roll in the ground, let alone new players.
Apparently we are still picking up Mackies wage untill their new owners get through the FA approaval process.

Reading are in pretty much the same situation we were a couple of seasons ago. Even if they're interested, I very much doubt SP would even consider him leaving, or that he himself would want to leave. Quite excited by the Hobbs/ Manciennce combination at centre back

Hobbs/mancienne might be a good partnership too!

Shoudnt this be in the dodgy rumours section?. The royals got about as much chance signing Hobbs as Prince Harry playing CF for them! :)

Hobbs- I hope is here to stay class act and player Reading can kiss ass if they think they are going to get him 3 million would make me think about it for 10 seconds anyway!!
