Transfer deadline day has proved to be a fruitless and frustrating time for Forest fans in recent years and although this one looks to be shaping up in similar fashion, there is hope that we may make a signing or two before the window slams shut at 11pm tonight.

Steve McClaren has warned the club that he needs at least 3 signings in before the 11pm deadline, if we are to mount a serious challenge for promotion this campaign. A failure to strengthen the squad in McClaren’s opinion, will only lead to a season of struggle. On that basis, you’d hope that the board would listen to what he says and act on his recommendations.

The gaffer apparently has a few irons in the fire, with the rumour mill suggesting a loan deal for either Patrick van Aanholt or Ryan Bertrand at Chelsea. Stoke City centre half Danny Collins, is also rumoured to be a deadline day target for the Reds, but there are question marks over his desire to drop down a division.

I think it’s going to be another day of frustration for us Trickies, but I hope against hope (as we all do), that the manager gets the backing, he needs to take the club forward. You never know, it might happen.

  • It’s the 1st September and I am depressed !!! I really do like this manager – I think he has our best interests at heart but he will be gone or sacked coz the team will do rubbish as the board have shown no commitment to him/us/the team – they have no ambition – The manager will be a soft target when we start struggling because of the unfortunate baggage he carries & I think the board knew this when they hired him – if they dont invest and we play crap – they can blame the ‘brolly factor’ – if he does well on meagre resources – they can take all the credit for a great appointment – Either way the board wins – ITS TIME FOR THE FANS TO TURN ON THE BOARD NOT THE MANAGER
