The clock ticks down on the transfer window, it was probably no surprise to find Nottingham Forest in the middle of it.

The Premier League can be a harsh, unforgiving place for a club that is trying to adjust to the top level.

Now, after 24 hours of defeat with a 6-0 to Manchester City, Nottingham Forest is back in the market for new players and it was probably just inevitable that, by the end of the day, they would complete the most broad transfer blitz there has ever been in England’s top division. Crystal Palace set the previous record with 18 signings in 2013. And, Forest seemed intent on smashing it.

Willy Boly’s signing from Wolves was first. Josh Bowler landed from Blackpool and will go on loan to Olympiacos. Loic Bade also signed on loan for Rennes. All were the 19th, 20th and 21st signings of Forest’s summer.

Michy Batshuayi’s proposed move from Chelsea fell through at the last minute, however a deal is also in place for Serge Aurier, former Tottenham Hotspur defender who is currently a free agent. Aurier will be assigned to number 22.

Forest have spent many more transfer fees in one window than they had previously throughout their entire 157-year history.

Upwards of £150million, Nottingham Forest spent this summer than Barcelona, Real Madrid.

A new signing has arrived, on average, every four days. In 30 years of the Premier League, there has never been another team to spend so intensely in such a short span of time.

Forest spent 35 days at the bottom of the league though. They went out of the EFL Cup in a 4-0 home defeat to Wolves. 

Forest had beaten Huddersfield Town in the Championship play-off final, the clu’s longest-serving player, Joe Worall, pointed out that until the appointment of Cooper, it had been unpleasant.
