Nottingham Forest legend Kenny Burns says he is glad Henri Lansbury has been sold to Aston Villa.As you might have noticed, I was often critical of Henri Lansbury during his time at Forest.Now he's gone to Aston Villa for £3m when he had six months left on his contract. To be honest, I don't think he'll be remembered too kindly by Forest fans.The last good game he had was against Barnsley, when he scored a hat-trick. Before that you have to go back to last season, when he had a fantastic...

Nottingham Forest legend Kenny Burns says the club could take the 'cheap option' when it comes to appointing a new manager - and then sell Ben Osborn as well.How great was it to see Nottingham Forest win at the weekend and give their fans something to cheer?It was a big three points against Bristol City and it came from a brilliant goal from Ben Osborn. It was a piece of real imagination and skill.It is because of that he is wanted by Newcastle United. My big fear now is that Fawaz Al Hasawi...

Nottingham Forest fans have been reacting to the Post's 'sort it or sell it' message to Reds owner Fawaz Al Hasawi. Here's Tom Bentley, 25, from Corby Glen, giving his reaction.It's approaching 20 years since my first visit to the City Ground and this is, without a doubt, the strangest period I have witnessed. I will never forget January, Friday 13th, 2017 for the rest of my football supporting days. The collapse of the takeover really was a sucker punch, it felt like there was no coming back...

As fixtures go at this moment, Lee Johnson couldn't really have picked a better one than Nottingham Forest. A club in crisis off the pitch, with no manager, win-less in eight games and having just sold arguably their best player, Bristol City should have been going there in a determined mood but we once again finished a Championship game empty handed and Forest have now moved above us in the league.Whilst we may not yet be in the relegation zone our form absolutely has relegation written all...
