    It’s certainly a high note. Clearly I’m in tune with goings on.

    Seems like punishment on a disproportionate scale.

    Just type in his name and you should get some bits and pieces from his Bordeaux games.
    Looks like a big lad and skilful too.
    Hope it works out for him and us.

    Bordeaux are a dann good side. If he’s good enough for them, he’s good enough for Forest.

    He played in 31 games in 20/21 and 27 games in 19/20 for Bordeaux. Not bad tbh.

    Looking at his track record it seems like a no brainer for me.

    Also Bordeaux, if he is good enough to play for Switzerland in the past few years then he is certainly good enough for us. They have been a very good and well drilled side in recent years.

    Pine Marten? He's more likely to get something serious from sharing a field with Bristol City's Chris Martin.

    You've not watched the Girondins recently then? Good is not a word I'd use.

    They finished mid table last 2 seasons despite financial problems culminating in administration last April. This season they are in trouble. Benito was one of their higher paid players and seemed to agree to a contract termination in august on the basis he was moving back to the Swiss League, but the deal fell through.

    I find this a funny one. If he’s good enough for a contract and we are going to take a chance then why not 18 months?. Say he looks as good as DJed-then all we do is put him out there and encourage a bidding war. And if he’s not good enough then he’s not good enough but pass on him.

    There aren't going to be many options at LB at this time of the season. The fact that nobody else has wanted him suggests he's not going to be a long term option but we need a stop gap. Bong just isn't up to it I'm afraid.
