Shopping for a striker

Ansarifard has just completed a deal to Qatar.
Vellios has been sold.
Soudani has been sold.
Murphy has been told to find a new club.
Cummings is rotting in the u23s and we are listening to any offers.
Tyler Walker possibly sold/loaned, with Coventry the current favorites.

It's clear that our current stock isn't rated and if it all comes to pass that leaves us with....... Grabban as our only out-and-out.

So who do people think forest will bring in?

Could realistically see us dropping a respectable amount of coin on a proven championship striker and then bring in a continental striker in on a loan with a view to a permanent.

It's not the signing on fee, it's the wages.

Can't blame Ben for taking the cash I suppose, after all by 32 your career is just about over.

And not been under appreciated by the club’s supporters. It’s a win win for Osborn. Wish him the best of luck there, although I suspect they will be straight back down. They had a number of players such as McGoldrick who had proper purple patches and the rest of their careers show that they’re not all that. Unless Sheff Utd make some inspired sigbongs, particularly up front, I foresee a season of struggle for them.

Heard a rumour Jonathan Kodija at Villa May become available...

A real shame we missed out on Byram, we have no chance of the likes of Kodja, he would cost a decent amount, plus good wages. We unfortunately are looking in totally different financial markets, until we off load some of the fringe players or get some money in I doubt very much if we have much if any money to spend. Doesn’t look like we have much chance of Colback either, I actually think Bruce rates him, not surprisingly so he’ll be staying there I guess.

Watched first half on live stream onetv.gr

We look a bit of a shambles to be honest. Shape and discipline is all over the place. But we are playing a very good team (including Bouchilakis).

Only ray of light is Muric who has pulled off three very good saves.

Matty Cash at right back, makes as much sense as Benny at left back.
Zonal marking I have never been a fan of, guess I can see why.

3-0 down, kindest thing I can say is the away shirt looks quite smart.

Better in the second half but maybe Olympiakos came off the gas a bit. Lots of changes.
Darikwa definitely a better RB than Cash. Appiah had a couple of neat touches. Lolley closest to scoring with a typical cut inside a lefy foot drive which the keeper turned round the post. Definitely need more fire power.

A full blooded game, good workout

Definitely a step up in class against Olympiakos. Champions League regulars these days and it showed from the few bits I watched. Think Lamouchi has a lot to learn and quick. Don’t like to hear the dreaded word “Zonal marking”. I remember McClaren trying to introduce that when he took charge of Forest. Needless to say, it was a total disaster.

Thinks Forest did well to get away with just a 3-0 defeat by the sounds of it. Muric didn’t convince according to some reports I heard?
