    Here’s one for the other side of your ridge-tiles Raymondo.

    „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“

    Good player & we need to get him back, shouldn’t pay him too much though because he’s a fucking ginger & gingers shouldn’t be paid as much as normal people

    Given that the selling price set by Newcastle is set at £1m (allegedly), then it will come down to a which club stumps up the highest wages and the longest contract.
    Whatever Colback may say in the media, he seems to be a money-motivated man.
    If the best offer he gets from a new club is say 50% of his supposed current salary, then I wouldn't be surprised if he sat out the final year of his Newcastle contract.

    If we are held to ransom, walk away from him.If we make an offer and he wants to wait to see what else comes on the table , again walk away because he is not that good and we can get similar

    Mad to think he's available for a million quid. Especially given we allegedly spent double that for Daryl Murphy. In fact, Newcastle probably owe us some form of discount for that.

    Why not do as we did with Grabbon?

    I think his asking price was originally £5m and we paid £6m to copensate for the wage drop. We can give Newcastle £2m they then pay Colback a signing fee and we offer him 20k a week wage and double it if we win promotion.

    Simple

    Pay the one mil. Pay him a decent wage. And let's bring one of the best holding midfielders in this league to the club.

    Even if he is ginger. And geordie.

    Definitely one of our best last season, the reported fees don't sound prohibitive

    I'd like to see Colback signed on the terms being rumoured. I wouldn't even think twice about it either. He's a tenacious midfield enforcer.

    ESPECIALLY because he is ginger.

    I see Ashley is finally selling Newcastle to a super super rich Sheikh that tried to buy Liverpool last year.

    Maybe they won't try milk the Colback situation anymore

    I personally am more concerned over what Colback wants. I reckon we'd stump up the £1m for him. I just wonder if he fancies it long term.

    True. It is positive that he moved his family down here and supposedly liked the place. But there is that lingering doubt when finances get involved and he has sat on the wage before he joined us.

    Suppose the positive of the takeover is they want to keep Rafa.

    The £1m is neither here nor there.
    The killer will be Colback getting clubs into an auction over how much they are going to pay him and for what length of contract.
    He certainly played well for us, I think he is very professional in that way, but let's not fool ourselves into thinking he is anything more or less than focused on his pay package.

    Didn't we win the three games he was banned for giving us our best run of the season?

    Good player, but you dont break the bank for a DM when the holes in other areas (particularly RW) are so glaring.

    I think he'll take the wage drop and come here.

    If he's sat on a big wedge for some years, he's already set up for life. And Championship clubs don't pay peanuts.

    Does he want football or money? If he gets both, good on him. Otherwise?

    It'd be typical Forest to spunk 6m on players like Clough & Soudani, then miss out on Colback for threpance

    Just my opinion Alf, but if you're prepared to give the bloke a chance to prove himself next season rather than constantly writing him off on the evidence of less than a handful of appearances, it might possibly turn out that we haven't spunked money on Soudani?

    I am. Hell if anyone can get something out of him MON will.

    But who would you sooner have Soudani or Colback? It's a no-brainer for me, and both Clough & Soudani serve as examples of how we tie money up in players who give us little return.

    Regardless of what Soudani or Clough do next season, at this point in time I'd sooner have 6m sat in the bank so we could tie Colback's deal up

    All season folk have taken my comments on the clubs dealing as a slate of the players. It isn't mate. It's a slate of our business dealings.

    I'm pretty confident that the club wouldn't have purchased Soudani had they any concern that he'd sustain a rare a long-term injury, given his record of few injuries.

    After all, had fate played its hand differently, Colback could have sustained a long-term injury and Soudani could have ended the season with a decent goals and assists return?
