    Default First Signing

    Surely DF first signing and priority should be a left back. We can't rely upon Cohen whom many would argue is better as a midfielder. I personally believe Cohen is one of the best left backs I've seen at Forest, however he can't be relied upon to last the season. What I've observed is Fox is not good enough. It was as obvious as the nose on your face that teams target this left had weakness we have, surely it's time to put this to bed, your thoughts?

    We conceded just as many goals from right wing crosses last season as we did from the left...

    Priority has to be a defensive midfielder for me. If we dont get someone to lead the midfield & wake Lansbury up, we,ll have it all on to stay in this league. I dont even think a Gardner type would do it, it needs to be someone like Guedioura who can dictate from box to box & bring everyone into the game. Antonio would certainly benefit from this kind of player.

    I heard rumours about Ali Al-Habsi, He's a good option imo if it's affordable.

    I was quite excited by this thread at first as I thought we had made a signing.

    Now I see it is just another of the myriad threads about the embargo, players we may or may not be signing/needing/wanting etc and the gloomy state of the club and playing staff.

    So, basically, Carlos ran out of credit on his phone?

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    Well he's already signed Matt Mills and Jamie Ward so the first two signing of being your dream signings are out of the door. I am more bothered about getting a holding midfielder too. Someone that will bollock the other one or two with him, will put a tackle in and can play a simple pass to a red shirt. I would welcome back Gary Gardner with open arms if we could. He said he would come back if he wasn't getting any action at Villa. I don't really know if we get a loan in or we get someone around 27/28, who's been there and done that. Is Rudolph Austin that type of player? He's going on a free isn't he?

    Dougie wants Fox LB for next season. Be very surprized if we sign one.

    That's because they could just waltz into the box down our left, no need to cross it.

    Has DeVries signed a new contract yet or is he off?

    Give me the stats to back up your hypothesis.

    I'm not, really disappointed in Darlows distribution, kicking etc last season.

    I think we need to fill the Gary Gardner role as a priority.

    I'd like us to fill that role with Gary Gardner.

    Alas, I cannot see that happening.
