Just been told everyone is calm as things are playing out as expected so far. We could if things go well see an outlay of in and around 200mil this Summer if everything goes to plan with only 4, possibly 5, incomings(for the first team squad) depending on how things pan out and then how we then have to play the final parts out to suit the earlier business.


I've been given quite a bit more but that's the gist of it for now.

Been said many times before but great to hear we've got a strategic plan in place with multiple targets and ducks lined up if one fails

Those sort of funds

Exciting times if so.

Another strong window like last year, where we add genuine quality that affects the first team picture, and I think Ange's football will go to another level.

The funds should definitely be there to do it. This is what we were building towards with the stadium etc...

That's an average of 40-50m per signing which I don't think anyone could complain about & brings the likes of Gray and potentially Eze into view.
Let's see how it pans out but always positive to get good vibes this early in window

Good to hear that we're finally priortising quality > quantity.

4 additions in key areas is all we really need to push on.

Sounds promising, thanks for sharing. Let's hope the window is a good one. Our signings over the past few windows have been generally excellent, one more very good window should see us in great shape.

Thanks Trix.

Knowing Levy I'm not at all surprised that things have been quiet so far. I fully expect us to start making some fairly aggressive bids in the next week or so as we near the end of the current FFP reporting period. I would imagine there's got to be someone at Forest for sure that's on our hit list for a end of June deal.

Then once the end of June has passed we're into more of a "normal" player buying mode with clubs not under the same pressure.

What I think is particularly exciting is that Lange was able to pull off some particularly ambitious deals at Villa, and we know Paratici is good for a clever transfer or two if he's still consulting. Aside from Eze and Vanderson/Gray we have no real solid links. Interested to see what the recruitment team are able to achieve with that sort of money to play with.
