Not a scooby. I don't live in the UK so the only football I really watch is Forest games.

Re: Welcome Antonio

So what's his position? Looks from the little I have seen to play down the middle. Thought we signed him as a wide player? Nominally a winger but more of an inside forward. He won't play much down the touchline, he's very direct. I'm not sure how well "knock it past the defender and beat him for pa...

Re: Welcome Antonio

I'm OK with this. I'm not entirely convinced he'll cut it in the Premier League and I think you've probably overpaid for him, but I've been wrong plenty of times before and if he does translate his skills to the top flight he'll be a lot of fun for you to watch.

Re: Summer 2015 transfer thread

Could take Andy Reid instead. He's fat and injured and he's still one of the most popular players at Forest. No-one's going to offer enough for us to want to part with him, he makes us tick when he's playing. I understand the comparisons between Antonio and Marlon, but there are differences. Harewo...

Johnny Byrne's Boots wrote:The Twitterati also say that Jarvis isn't part of the Antonio offer as our valuation of him exceeds their's by some margin.
I would imagine that there are bigger issues than that, namely that we can't afford Jarvis's wages and by all accounts he doesn't want to play for us.

Re: Summer 2015 transfer thread

Antonio is big, fast and very direct. He's an excellent finisher and really good in the air. On the downside, he's incredibly raw. Sometimes his control is laughable and his main "knock it past the defender and then beat him for pace and strength" tactic will be less effective in the Premier League....

Re: Summer 2015 transfer thread

Blimey. That's a lot of money. It might work out for you, but far from a guaranteed thing.

You can't teach big and fast though.

Re: Summer 2015 transfer thread

So in another typically half-arsed swoop, West Ham offer the customary derisory bid and also manage to make it known that their former record signing and only remaining winger is highly disposable. Jarvis should be raring to go at the weekend then... Buying players should be like buying a house. Yo...

Re: Summer 2015 transfer thread

But....Matt Jarvis cost us about £10.75 million (Cheers Sam/Mark Curtis), so you're getting offered £14.75million :thup: I'm already on record as saying I'd do a deal for Antonio at the right price, and I like the idea of Jarvis coming in as a replacement. Having rejected bids at £4M already though...

We've bid 5m + Jarvis for forests Antonio according to espnfc Edit: daily mail now running with the story too I'll have your arm off for that deal. Antonio's a really fun player to watch, he's all power and pace and he's a really good finisher. Sometimes you watch him and he looks like it's the fir...

Is KP a Test match quality batsman yet? :wink: He appears to have matured into being a fine Test batsman to match his world class cuntitude.

Re: The January 2012 transfer window

I could be making this up but Im sure he played large periods of the game on the left of a midfield diamond on Saturday. He started in behind the striker but when the changes happend for Forest he moved to the left & looked more affective. As for pace he left Reid for dead at one point & Ried ain't...
