Cunningham raring to go!

Greg Cunningham is relishing the opportunity to make an impact for Nottingham Forest after joining on loan from Manchester City.
New Forest manager Steve Cotterill struck an agreement with City earlier on Tuesday to bring in the 20-year-old left-back on a deal until the end of December.
Cunningham insists he did not hesitate to take up the offer and he is now looking forward to playing for such a prestigious club.
"I first became aware of Forest's interest midway through last week and had the weekend to think about it," Cunningham told Forest's
official website.
"To be honest it was a no brainer. Forest is a massive club with a great history and tradition and it's an honour to have the opportunity to play for them.
"I'm delighted to be here and can't wait for Saturday's game against Hull."

Mooooose signs on for another 3 years


Guy Moussi has today pledged his future to Nottingham Forest by signing a new three-year contract.

The French midfielder's previous deal expired at the end of last month and there had been speculation he would leaveThe City Ground.

But Moussi has put pen to paper on a new agreement and is excited about the prospect of working for manager Steve McClaren.

He explained: "I spoke a lot to the other lads when I was in France and they told me a lot of positive things about the new manager.

"I already knew he was a good coach and I'm looking forward to working for him.

"I'm very happy now I'm back at Forest … now it's time to get down to work."

McClaren flew to the south of France to speak to Moussi face to face while contract negotiations were ongoing.

And the player added: "It was a good act of him to get a plane to France. It was something I appreciated and it made me happy."

Moussi reported back for training with The Reds today having spent the last three weeks working at a specialist camp in France.

Greening hopes to earn chance to captain Forest in the future

JONATHAN Greening today said he would love the honour of captaining Nottingham Forest – but only after he has earned the right to do so.

The midfielder is already thought to be high on the list of potential skippers this season, following his £600,000 move from Premier League Fulham.


But, while Greening says he would love the chance to fill the void left by the departure of Paul McKenna, he believes the captaincy is something to be earned, rather than demanded.

"I was captain at West Brom for two years," said 32-year-old Greening. "And Steve McClaren will know me well, because I have played under him for five years at Manchester United and Middlesbrough.

"But there are probably other players who deserve the captaincy more than me.

"I would rather come into the club, settle in and try to play well. I hope I can use my experience to help the team, if I can.

"But when I was captain at West Brom, it was in my fourth full season at the club.

"I knew the club at that point and, when I got the armband, I felt as though I had earned it, you know?

"I think there are a few players ahead of me in the pecking order at Forest; players who deserve it more than me.

"If the manager tells me he wants me to be captain, I am obviously not going to turn it down.

"But, as a player just coming into the club, I think you are sometimes better to have somebody who knows the club already.

"Perhaps in a couple of years' time I might get it."

Greening has signed a three-year contract at the City Ground, which could take him to his 36th birthday.

"There is plenty left in the tanks," said Greening.

"I am a fit guy and, touch wood, I have not had a major injury during my career. The longest I have been out injured is four weeks.

"And I have not missed a day of training at Fulham in two years.

"I played 230 games on the spin for West Brom in five years.

"I am quite lucky in that respect. Fingers crossed that will continue for a couple of years yet."

Billy Davies Out - Steve McClaren In!

Nottingham Forest are delighted to announce the appointment of Steve McClaren as manager.
The 50 year old has signed a three year contract and will meet the media for the first time as Forest manager on Thursday.

Chief Executive Mark Arthur said: "The club moved quickly to secure his services as it is rare for a manager and coach of his undoubted calibre to be available.

"Steve has a proven track record of coaching and managing at club level, having played a key role in helping Manchester United secure the Champions League trophy, three Premier League titles and an FA Cup; guided Middlesbrough to the League Cup and also to the final of the UEFA Cup and led FC Twente to their first ever Dutch title.

"We are delighted to have him on board at The City Ground."

Extreme Weather Forces Postponement

Nottingham Forest's Championship game at The City Ground, which was scheduled to take place tomorrow, has been postponed due to the extreme weather.

Although the pitch is playable, the safety of supporters was at the heart of the decision which was taken this morning after consultations between both clubs, the Football League and local authorities.

Approach roads and pavements around The City Ground remain treacherous and the arctic conditions have caused problems within the stadium with several pipes bursting overnight.

And with another night of sub-zero temperatures forecast there's little possibility of the situation easing.

Chief Executive Mark Arthur said: "It's not a decision that was taken lightly but the safety of both sets of supporters, as well as our staff, is of paramount importance."

A new date for the game has yet to be decided.

Tickets for the game will be valid for the rearranged fixture.

Supporters unable to attend the rearranged game will be eligible for a full refund from the Ticket Office once a new date for the game has been finalised.
