Re: Rumour - Rodrigo Riquelme

Oh apparently he is defo linked to Kia. Apparently he's fast and takes people on, but he's a kid and never ready for the championship.

Yeah, marca are Madrid based, so probably reliable that it's a loan move after he signs a new contract. Possibility that it might not be agent based move, given the manager's links with Atleti.

Re: Shall we just set up the phoenix club now?

100% agree, need to decide now if we set up a new club, or just go and support Reading Town/City. One comment saying the organisers of Reading City are chances, any other views? If we went bust, I'd be surprised if less than 25% of season ticket holders were up for supporting a new team. Watching a ...

Re: Rumour - Saeid Ezatolahi

Split on this. Seen enough to know he looks the part but also his playing record over 2 seasons is pretty poor (presuming injury again this season?) so would probably edge towards a “no”. Is Alex Fernandez available? Last I heard he was in Spain’s second division so presumably wouldn’t be a great c...

José Gomes

Almería have sacked their manager just before the play-offs and given the job to Jose Gomes.

Re: BFTG - Forest v2

Olise is class, I'd like him to start every game so we can see as much as possible of him before he goes to a champions league club.
Does need to work on his fitness though and give a bit more defensively. Their goal came from the full back overlapping and Olise not going with him.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Wigan Athletic (a) sponsored by a long trek up north

Joao has done well, makes a difference having a striker that can control the ball.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Wigan Athletic (a) sponsored by a long trek up north

What's going on with olise? He looked absolute quality last when he was in the team, not getting a look in at the moment and would be perfect replacement for ovi or swift.

Re: Anton took money!!

Mischievous from the OP ! Anton ‘took’ money ? Suggesting it was illegal ? Or he paid himself dividends, interest etc ? SJM ‘took’ money out of the club too. He converted his loans into extra shares, which he eventually sold. He also had use of a very nice penthouse on top of the hotel which I’m gu...

Re: BFTG Huddersfield Away

I think we all need to calm down. Yep. Way too early for all this promotion talk. It’s still August. Yeah they battered us for the first 30 mins, and although they didn't get a shot on target they still had a couple of near misses. We looked knackered, should have started Rino to give some energy a...

Re: Are we screwed?

Most amazing transfer window ever, very exciting. But: Pele got pretty average reviews at forest. Joau is extremely inconsistent according to Wednesday fans. Boye only seems to get 3 or 4 goals a season. Puscus has never scored more than 10. Ovi was the weakest of the five loan signings last season...

Re: Rumour - Rafael Cabral

My mate from napoles say that for two seasons he was first choice and played pretty well. Then made a bad mistake and the fans got on his back and lost the jersey. Says bit unlucky to be second choice.

Re: Pre season tour

Watched the match vía a stream, pretty good performance, should give the players a bit of confidence. Not sure what the team will be for the first match. Virginia didn't convince but Walker was woeful, so assume the former will start. Back four pretty much picks itself as Yiadom, Miazga, Moore and B...

Re: CONFIMRED - Michael Morrison

At the moment we are desperate for bodies, so getting someone proven at this level for free is great news. Don't know much about him, and comments suggest he might not be great on the ball, but we can get a ball-playing centre back next season for the Jose system, this season will be another scrap.

Re: Pre season tour

Yep agree with Holsgrove looking good, needs to get a bit stronger and bit more explosive but very tidy and good technique.

Boadu at least wants the ball and has the confidence to keep asking for it and try and turn on it. Hopefully with more pre-season he'll lose it less.

"Diaby makes an important contribution to the verticalization of the beaver game".

100% in for this signing, clearly fills a hole that the team have been missing.
