    Forest 2019/20 thread

    Do you honestly believe that Gupi? Any manager worth his salt would try to implement the football he wants from day one. He had 19 games last season, mostly playing a lump it forward game, most of them without Carvalho. He had the time to implement his brand of football, and he did it from day one. He lost half of his first 16 games, (w3 d5 l8), before introducing Carvalho for the last 3 games....... which we won. He's got as much intention of playing a passing game as I've got of letting Deano back on this Forum. What we've seen from MON so far is what we are going to get........ before he's sacked at Christmas. If it means selling Carvalho to bring in a lump of a centre forward plus more muscular players, he'll do it. The last time MON played a passing game was when he was Clough's number 7 in the 70's. What we need is for the club to lay down a footballing blueprint of attractive, passing football, and only allow the manager to bring in players who suit that style, and only appoint managers who can implement that style of football. That way, when a manager is sacked, the new manager won't take over a club that has 30 players that doesn't suit his brand of football. I'm frightened to death of the damage MON could do in the next window.

    That's the problem mate. He can't be on it if MON doesn't play him. If Carvalho's style of play doesn't suit MON's style then he won't get picked, and to be honest, if that turns out to be the case, we might as well cash in on him. Lolley and Carvalho need to be the first names on the team sheet and the team needs to be built around those two. Surely MON can see that???

    Who's actually said we are selling Lolley? As far as I'm aware there's been no official offers made for him..... just lazy journalism linking him with Villa

    If we get £10m for Lolley, you can guarantee that Forest will buy 6 or 7 players with that money, rather than 1 or 2 decent players. Either that, or we'll spend it paying up contracts on some of the deadwood that we have amassed once again. We need to try and hold on to him, and compliment him with a quality winger on the other side. But, if a Prem club come in for him, or any other of our players for that matter, they'll be gone, and to be honest, you couldn't blame them.

    Let's just hope nobody comes in for him, mate. I'd much rather he be starting next season with us.

    So, we signed him for a bag of peanuts 18 months ago, and now we should ask £20m for him? It'll never happen mate. £10m tops, 7 or 8m more likely.

    https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/joe-lolley/profil/spieler/287167 Valued at £3.6m. Like I said previously, we'd be lucky to get £10m for him.

    The politics thread

    Yep. What's the point of making the walk to the polling station if a) you've already voted to leave the EU, so why would you vote to elect a MEP to an organisation that you want out of? and b) You are convinced we are leaving the Union, so any MEP you vote for will soon be out of a job anyway. It's pointless trying to read into the outcome of the EU elections. Less than 50% of the turnout of the referendum.

    Cairney sold for an undisclosed fee, thought to be between 3 and 4 million.

    Where do you get the £20m price tag for Lolley? We'd be lucky to get half that for him. Yeah, he's been OK for us this season, but not £20m worth of OK.

    LETS ALL LAUGH AT DERBY!

    I would think that now Villa are up, they'll be setting their targets a bit higher than Lolley. On another note, I read that Lansbury has a clause in his contract that gives him a massive pay rise if Villa go up. Played only 5 games this season due to injury, and looks set to be on 60k a week. Same applies for that waste of space McCormack

    Nottingham Forest were monitoring the Rovers star last summer under Aitor Karanka, and had him as their fall-back option had they not signed Sam Byram from West Ham. Almost 12 months on, the Reds have now been linked with a move for the 24-year-old as his contract comes to an end at the Memorial Ground, and he has confirmed his expected departure.

    Still got a year left at Newcastle. £1m is the fee Geordies are asking.

    Fuck Derby. I don't give a shit what they do. More concerned with the mess we're in.

    We could easily lose 20 players Chaz.............problem is, we'd replace them with 25 players of equal shittiness.

    MON

    I'm not too sure what type of player MON will bring in, or in fact, what players will be brought in for him, but you know I have been in agreement with you regarding our recruitment policy, Art. Regardless of manager, we will not go up whilst we are signing mediocre players by the score every season. The club need to address this issue. As a fan, I'd much rather we brought in two quality players who would make a difference on the pitch, as opposed to letting a manager do a supermarket sweep, ala Karanka, and end up with a squad of 40 players, most of whom could leave and we wouldn't bat an eye lid. This has been Forest's biggest failing over the past 5 years or so. Again, I'll say it, QUALITY NOT QUANTITY.
  20. Post some up then Eve. Whatever we think of MON, it was obviously still a very special day for you.

    Karanka out

    Thing is, when Clough was appointed we hadn't spent 20 years out of the top flight. Promotion wasn't worth the best side of £200m, and we had a very mediocre squad with little money to spend. And believe me, there was opposition to his appointment. There was always this underlying feeling that he would go back to Derby, and I think he was half expecting the call. Times have changed, and I don't believe the current owners would have stuck with Clough into a second season. The Premier League is now the Holy Grail, and the monetary rewards alone put excessive pressure on all big club Championship managers to get his club there. Owners want Premier League and if a manager can't deliver then he'll be lucky to get more than a season. It's wrong, but that's the modern game. Yep, Clough would have struggled to keep his job after his first half season in charge.

    Nottingham Forest vs Middlesbrough

    I hated Karanka's approach to the game. Very one dimensional. Like for like subs which were never going to change a game when needed. I'd say he made the game more difficult than it needed to be. MON, on the other hand, just comes across as clueless. He talks bollocks, and that is reflected on the pitch. I don't believe that the players enjoyed playing for either of them. But I must say, of the two, I'd take Karanka.........but there isn't much in it. Both horrid managers. What Savo says................We need a young manager who has a track record of playing and developing young players playing good football.

    Art, that's the most depressing comment I've read on here for a long time.

    Nottingham Forest vs Middlesbrough

    I don't believe Art is talking about next year, Darcy. He's comparing Karanka's first 17 games last season, to MON's first 17 games this season. MON has done slightly better than Karanka did, which is difficult to believe, but true. So he's asking the question, why is MON getting so much more stick than Karanka did? If you remember, this time last season, I was slaughtering Karanka. He hit the Jan transfer window like a bull in a china shop, bringing in a whole new team, then proceeded to produce results that would have taken us down over an whole season. Yet some on here still thought he was the dog's doo dahs. MON has produced better results, points wise, but almost to a man, everyone wants him out. That's what Art is struggling to come to terms with.
