    Word just in that Nottingham Forest are set to recall Jorge Grant from his loan at Notts County as Bradford City bid £500,000. #NFFC #BCFC #ncfc #NottsForest

    It has been my concern for a while that some people may have forgotten that Forest are a bunch of c**ts.

    This is all a good reminder that Forest are in fact a bunch of c**ts.

    Like getting in a new striker, I hope we’re at least somewhat prepared for this eventuality.

    It's not something that I had forgotten.

    It's a shame Alan Hardy had to find out the hard way though. Maybe it will renew his determination to get us above them. Pavis always had that motivation because of the way they treated him.

    I don't think Grant is worth 500K, btw.

    Me neither but we all know that you shouldn't rely on other people's players. Alus comes back to bite you on the bum as Nolo would say!!!

    But does it bite us on the bum?
    We’ve had two players for half a season of the calibre we couldn’t have hoped to sign and we’re second in the league.
    I don’t think there are any lessons to be learned as I would certainly take two players of that calibre next season and run the risk of losing them in Jan!

    Spot on, the way to look at it is they have helped us into a position where we have a good chance of being promoted. We have to now capitalise on this.

    All that is true. However the key thing here for me is putting into writing that they were staying for the season. They’re claiming that it was Warburton who put that in writing and so they’re no longer bound by it. May or may not be true. And 500 grand for Grant is decent money.

    But it’s a bit like a winning a bet with a mate. Does he have any legal obligation to honour it? Absolutely not. Would you think he was a bellend and probably not trust his word ever again if he didn’t? Of course.

    So why doesn't AH match the bid if he wants the player that bad, Forest are well withing their rights to sell or loan to whom they want, its business.

    It would be terrible to loose Grant straight after Yates and he would take some serious replacing.... I will be honest and say I never heard of either of them before they signed for us so I have complete trust that KN can unearth another couple of gems to take us over the finish line. Also with us being in 2nd place and with KN as manager I think it will be a little easier to attract decent players to drop down to league 2 and buy into the philosophy of a manager and chairman who are dreaming big this year.

    Notts had six months loan of two class players. Be thankful for that. Had the football boot been on the other foot, Suckerman and his ilk would be LOLling like crazy at how Notts had pulled the rug out from under Florist.
    Like the man said higher up this fred - that's business. It also shows the importance of having legally witnessed paperwork as to the details of any deal. If Yates & Grant were only at Meadow Lane on the say so of Warburton I would be amazed and it would speak out loud about the way Forest is run as a club.
    It's done. Let's learn from the lesson, make a more reliable loan to fill in the gaps and move on.

    Contractually binding loans? Impossible! You've got a transfer window..any injuries or long term suspensions before or after..the parent clubs only option then is to recall loans.

    Not the case here but that's the reason it's not done that way.
