    Loan Window

    Sounds like Nixon is keeping his options open. If one of them sign then he can say he was right. Can't imagine will sign both, we only need one imo.

    Pretty Gladwin was no where near the 1 million mark, thought I read that it was a free transfer with fees depending on performances.

    Hull away

    For me it has to be: Raya Nyambe - Lenihan - Mulgrew - Bell Rothwell/Travis - Evans/Smallwood Palmer - Dack - Armstrong Graham The big call in this game for TM is who he plays in midfield, especially with Travis and Rothwell impressing last night. They both give us abit more quality and are more forward thinking in how they use the ball. Although we do need one of Evans or Smallwood as defensive protection. Personally I would go with Travis and Evans. I'd be dissapointed if TM stuck with Evans and Smallwood as Hull arn't all that are their for the taking imo, although Hull fans probably think the same for us!

    The general impression from Forest fans is that they don't want to sell him at all and if they did they would want 10 mil plus for him.

    Tbf Sharpe said he doesn't think Rovers will be able to commit to the fee which Forest are looking for, so doesn't really rule it out. A loan with a option to buy is ideal in this situation because if it doesn't work out then we wouldn't of lost out on the large fee, and if it does we get a promising striker who can improve our team for many years to come. However if there is no option to buy, if he is successful then it will only mean Forest will ask for a larger fee which we may not be able to afford.

    TM played a attacking line up, he wanted a win and he wanted it convincingly. And he got that. Great result, confidence will be high for Saturday. Well done Rovers.

    Happy with the strong team, we need the win. Looking forward to see Rothwell start in a deeper role, hoping he can turn out to be the box to box midfieldier who is good technically aswell as physically, same goes for travis. Hopefully Arma can get off the mark aswell, goals breed confidence.

    I'm personally hoping for Brereton or chapman with a view to a perm deal.

    Hull away

    Palmer will be a big player for us this season I'm sure. Always looking to make something happen, he will lose the ball but he will also be threatening with it. Much prefer that to constant sideways passes. People need to remember he isn't match fit yet and hasn't had a run of games where he regualry starts for a long time. A lot more to come from him I feel.

    Considering we are likely to end up mid table this season a run in the cup would be welcome. Also need to get that first win of the season out of the way. Id go for: Raya Nyambe - Downing - Lenihan - Bell Travis - Davenport Palmer - Rothwell - Conway Armstrong Relatively strong team and would give some of our fringe players a chance to impress and a good chance for Palmer, Rothwell and Armstrong to get there first goals of the season. If Samuel is fit then I'd play him up front and Armstrong on the wing instead of Palmer. If Travis standouts then would start him at Hull.

    What TM is looking to do is sign Grahams long term replacement. He's looking for a strong powerful centre forward who is useful in the air and can hold up the ball. I think Breton was TM's target as he has the physical attributes and he clearly has a lot of potential. If he had got a year under grahams guidance it would of done him the world of good and would of gone a long way to helping us be ready to potentially lead the line for us next season in our attempt to challenge for the playoffs. So it's a shame we didn't get him in. Either way we failed to make a marque signing, a player who could improve our team for the next couple of years. So, as I think TM has recognised in his recent comments, the permanent window has been more of a failure than a success. In regards to some of our targets such as Bauer and Chapman, I think we will wait until Jan and get them on reduced fees.

    Thursday deadline.

    We've only brought in 4 players, one being a loan. That is dissapointing. Along with that I'd say only 2 of them improve our starting 11, Palmer and Armstrong. The other two are unknown qualities. We need two more permanent signings which improved our starting 11 and that hasn't happened. I cant see the loan saving us to much, itll mainly be youngsters. Having said that I don't think our actual squad is too bad, just think we've missed a chance to push the highier end of the league.

    There's no way this is gonna happen, we don't even know if the bids been accepted and the window is gonna close in 8 mins. Suggestions are that the bid falls short of forests valuation. Warming to the idea of the signing IF it did happen but think we are out of time with this one.

    It screams panic buy to me, but the general feeling from forest fans is that he's got massive potential and that he's worth around 10 million. Seems like he is a dynamic power big striker whose finishing needs a bit of work. Would be a huge huge gamble.

    Thursday deadline.

    Really hope that isn't true. Sounds like a massive panic buy. I'd rather us not sign anyone than chuck money away. So frustrating that we seemingly have this money which we didn't use on good players at great prices such as Mcgin and Edwards.
