  1. It's not something we have ever done well really. I look back over the last 20 years. There's only a handful of ones where we identified one we could improve and make into a better player. Turner signed two good uns in Brunt and Whelan. I'm scratching my head at finding other examples to be honest.
  2. Exactly the type of signing we need to be making
  3. Some goal at weekend. Reminded me of Forestieri goal against Norwich. A lovely technical player who stands out at that level. Definitely one that Bohs fans are enjoying while they can. It's a risk but one worth taking for us. Not expensive, will be competition you would imagine. 6 goals in 20 games this season
  4. We won't be able to sell for 14. I would imagine he was on the list of players Forest were looking at if Jokanovic signed. He is neither consistent or injury free enough for us anymore. There is still the court case to defend as well even though that should not come to much you would hope
  5. Nixon says interest in Forestieri but we want 14m. Way too much IMO. 8 and I would get rid.
  6. We signing Lombardo as well?? About time. Only 22 years too late?
  7. How he can produce the form at end of last season and play like he has never a football this season is one of 2 things? He's either the biggest confidence player I've seen or one of the laziest. Either way, I wouldn't be renewing another contract.
  8. It is Bruce. However, I completely agree. Holloway is a good fit for this club. I wanted him when Jones left but he fell out with Mandaric previously and Gray did an excellent job as caretaker.
  9. I see it that way too. He seemed to having a good pre season as well. I'm sure it's just a coincidence him being linked with a move away on same day.. This is what you get with him. Brilliant but this is the 3rd pre season in a row there has been a flashpoint. I was optimistic a week or so back about the new season, the events of last night certainly have dampened it a lot
  10. Think Smart is a midfielder according to a few sources online. 20 years old. Can't imagine this is something major we are working on. Club must be disappointed Fred went elsewhere.
  11. Obviously we would be laughing at others giving out if we were the ones Mendes was helping, not Forrest. The football league do seriously need to look at it regardless of whether Forest go up or not. Modern day football is not the type of football I grew up with. There were always big clubs and clubs who got a sugar daddy owner I.e Blackburn and Newcastle. However, if you told me 20 years ago, that an agent would have enough influence and financial clout to pick a championship club at random to get them promoted, I would say that's taking away the competitiveness out of the league and could only last so long. The championship as a league is vastly underrated and the fact that Sunderland finished bottom were the only team not to concede to the top team shows that anything can happen. It would be a travesty if that was to change
  12. Alex Lopez released from Sporting Gijon. Would anyone take him back on a free? For me, not sure it's a priority area. If the likes of Abdi were to find an alternative (retirement) home, would defo consider.
  13. Just the kind of signing we should be making. Looks a good player. Hopefully this summer we may see the club sign players who can develop as well as tried and tested.
  14. The qualities we had last season are a distant memory. We are slow, clueless and resort to knocking it long to Forestieri. We miss Lees and Lee badly but no excuse. Carlos should leave at end of season when we don't get promoted. As others have said, results have papered over the performances. Leeds were bang average as well.
