    Would be happy with that. 6ft8 - Tallest player to ever play for Forest perhaps?

    Sounds promising:

    Pantilimon was first choice for Manchester City in the 2013–14 League Cup, which they went on to win. He then remained in the Premier League with Sunderland, spending one-and-a-half seasons there before a transfer to Watford in 2016. He has been a full international for Romania since 2008.

    Surely Gary Crosby was taller.

    He has less than 200 appearances and he's 30, that doesn't inspire me tbh. Osborn is about 25 appearances behind him, and Smith has about 1/3 of his appearances.

    I can only assume hes been back up his whole career.

    He was back up to Hart at City. We aren't going to get anyone who was a first choice regular in the PL.

    File me under: unsure on this one.

    Like previously mentioned, he's pretty much been a career back-up.

    Obviously has the pedigree of playing for City. But then Stuart Taylor has been at Arsenal, City and now Southampton...

    You know I love an anagram but this one of Costel Pantilimon is particularly relevant to our squad:

    Yeah i get that, just doesn't inspire me how can anyone know of hes actually any good? 115 of his appearances were for a Fc Politehnica Timisoare 45 at Sunderland 7 Man city and

    Presumably someone at the club has watched him play or knows someone who has?

    He was good in the season he was number 1 at Sunderland, kept 11 clean sheets in 28 games with 52 year old John O'Shea and 58 year old Wes Brown in front of him, that's not bad going.

    Id hope so, i know you cant judge players purely on stats but allot of the time you can Dumitru and Lica prime examples.

    Is this also a loan or permanent? If its loan id keep Smith in goal hes very harshly criticised and an extra 4 months playing time will help him progress.

    We need a better keeper if we are to challenge for promotion.

    Marshall, who we faced against Hull is the kind of standard we need. Made two excellent saves to keep us at bay, his kicking and distribution were very good, commanded his area and he was constantly shouting and marshalling(!) his defence.

    Hopefully this guy can be somewhere near that standard.

    Decent keeper with excellent pedigree. Would imagine wages are hefty though.
    Would be an excellent addition imo.

    Apparently there's more info on this move on his personal website, lemonparty.org

    My dad is a City ST holder and was always a big fan of Pantilimon, if that helps at all.

    Definitely tall enough for NFFC, and a decent keeper from what I remember of him in England.
