Nottingham Forest have made an unprecedented amount of signings this summer.
Aitor Karanka has made no less than 16 new additions at the City Ground as he looked to overhaul his side.
The number of new players brought in thus far has seen them struggle to find form in the league, having won one of their opening six fixtures, drawing four times.
With the influx of new additions, early season form is going to be an issue as the new players look to find their feet.
And that has shown with Forest in 14th position after a relatively indifferent start to the new campaign.
The latest addition to the club was Claudio Yacob, who signed a deal until 2020 last week, becoming another midfield addition to Karanka’s side.
With that being said, we asked Nottingham Forest fans on Twitter if they felt Karanka had made too many signings.
NOTTINGHAM FOREST FANS….
Has Aitor Karanka signed too many players? #NFFC

Unsurprisingly the majority sided with yes, the Forest boss had made too many signings, with 63 per cent of fans polled in agreement that 16 new players to a club in one transfer window is excessive.
Team harmony and understanding of playing together will be tainted by this, as Karanka will need to keep all the players happy, and the more players you have, the less that play.
It is a delicate balancing act that the Spaniard now has on his hands.
Conversely, a more substantial portion of the vote than many would have expected, with 37 per cent feeling Karanka was not wrong to sign almost a match day squad’s worth of new players.
The lesser number felt that that was, by the poll results, a good move to bring in that amount of players.
Only time will tell if the decision was a good one or now, and it will be interesting to see how it unfolds throughout the rest of the season, especially heading into the January window.
