A lot of people are doing table predictions and we seem to be staying up on most of them. WE'RE STAYING UP!

Ah, those are the famous Rail Seats, are they not? They work quite well, not as unlimited as proper “terrace“ standing, but better than being welded to a specific seat.

For anyone that's interested. Forest playing in the Premier League next gen cup. Currently 3-1. Dale Taylor with a brace

Percy’s article this morning


Some takeaways:

- Lingard came here for less money than West Ham offered
- MGW still the no. 1 target
- Friendly with Olympiacos planned in the winter break around the WC (The Huddersfield Derby)
- We still want a CF (Davis) and a winger (Cornet)

Also interesting from that article - that Forest are interested in being a host ground for Euro 2028!

Presumably by then, the WFCG would be remodelled with a new Peter Taylor Stand and possibly even more upgrades?

I like that, ambition!

Also like the little tailpiece about the DC10. Started my DC10 training just after the Paris Turkish crash, just as before I went to Abingdon for my parachute training the Hastings crashed and also the guy died right in front of us on the DZ at Sennybridge using the new low-porosity PX 'chute.

Never had a serious problem parachuting and the DC10 was always on time to the minute.

Never imagine the worst, it might never happen.

Is Forest player still a thing next year for people overseas? If for example I had a laptop that was convinced it was in the USA or Portugal or somewhere, is there coverage for 3pm kick offs and can I purchase these games from Forest TV?

One thing nobody seems to mention, is FFP. how are they able to get away with spending £100 million. anyone able to explain this to me.
just a thought, as everyone outside forest seems to see us as relegation fodder, maybe after no loss at Newcastle they might think a bit more
about our chances.

just like that!

The FFP guidance - or profit and sustainability rules - in the premier league are a bit more malleable than in the championship.

The losses can be up to £15m per season before there is some kind of concern and the club has to show how these losses can be managed sustainably with the financial cash flow of the club. Only when losses get to £105m is there some action taken by the league, which could be anything from imposed spending limits to fines.

There's a lot of wriggle room. And of course, buying £85m worth of players doesn't not mean spending £85m in one payment etc.

As well as the EPL's £130m, we'll also generate some money in sponsorship, tickets and merch. So our income may end up being near £160m

We're probably some point from the warning signals still.
