Sawyers to WBA is gathering a bit of momentum, new rumours are that they've bid £9.5m in a combined bid for Sawyers and Woods.

I think if they can push that to £12m we'd deal. Would hate to lose them, but think we'd be ok, and trust the club to get decent replacements / those already at the club to step up.

We're "monitoring" Adomah's situation according to the BP. Bring the king home.

Birmingham in for Bannan, fucking hope we are too if that's the case. Would love him or Woods here more than anything.

We've blown our transfer record out the water by spending £13m on Joao Carvalho. Don't know anything about him but hard not to be excited. We've also signed his teammate Diogo Goncalves, who is meant to be a serious talent, on loan with a view to a £15m permanent...

A lot of chat from Portuguese press, who broke the above news, that we are also close to signing Benfica's number 1, Bruno Varela, for something similar to the above fees. Insane.

Domestically, we are close to signing Grabban and want one other Championship striker (Oliveira being touted)

Not my money and I can't change it, so gonna enjoy the ride and see where we land.

Erring on the side of caution right now, we are still a long way short of having a side that is going to even push the top half, never mind anything else.

You don't spend like that without intending on pushing for promotion so I'm sure some more players will inevitably follow.

So you've copied our project and trying to emulate it. Good luck, will be looking out for Forest next season.

Where’s all the influx of money come from at Forest? Not really been following their ownership situation but 13m is a huge statement.

Didn't his celebration boil your piss at yours? Thought your fans didn't like him anymore.

He's so good though, I'd like him here if they went down but after the Tomlin saga he's the sort of player Johnson wouldn't ever sign, he'll go for a workman like Marley Watkins.
Not a bad shout back in February.

Player I was on about was McGeady as well who we've been linked with today :lol:

Not that impressed with signing Watkins, seems characteristic of the mistakes we made in the early part of this decade.

Another bid to Brentford for their lad Mepham, we tried for about 8m in Jan and have now upped it to 10m according to BBC.

Forest and Grabban seems to be bubbling away, hopefully a permanent deal, which will help the kitty.

It's safe to say that Watkins really struggled here. We had many players that struggled early on but you could see why they were good players. Mario Vrancic for example struggled with the pace and physicality of the Championship but when he had time on the ball you could see that there was a hell of a player in there and in the last third of the season he really took a step and started to look like an integral player. But with Watkins I can't tell you what he does well. He's not fast, his passing is ok, his crossing is poor, his finishing is poor, his positioning is ok. He just drifted through games not effecting them in the slightest and not even having a moment where you could say 'ok I know what they saw in him'. He's not quick enough to be a winger and he's not influential enough to be a lone front man. I honestly can't think of one attribute of his that I can say something positive about.

Any idea on fee? Really hope this one happens
