Reviving an old thread - weird that it's only a year old.

O'Driscoll got the boot after beating Leeds on Boxing Day to leave us 1 point off the play-offs with a squad that looked a bit short in terms of getting promotion.

Forest are now 1 point off the play-offs with a squad that looks a bit short in terms of getting promotion.

Still at least the McLeish thing now seems like a bad dream, even if McClaren learned how to do it wrong with us and now seems to be doing it right at Derby.



And we were wrong about Southampton.

*Drums fingers, waits.* the grauniad did a article on the clubs in the Premier League when Wenger arrived. Forest had had more managers than anyone than Southampton since then. Looks like we're about to pass them.

Guess what? We're a point off the play-offs with a squad that looks a bit short in terms of getting promotion.

Can't say anyone would be sorry to see the back of Davies if he is on the way out. But not convinced I could pick anyone who'd definitely do a better job. Please please let the Warnock rumours be a red herring. Please.

Given that if Davies id replaced it'll be cos he's a chippy little pragmatic footballing egotist who can't help but fall out with the clubs he's at, Warnock hardly strikes me as a great departure.

'Ere SPT just remembered something... Warnock is a former Sheffield United manager and a lifelong Blade. Don't Sheffield United and Forest have a pretty solid rivalry that dates back to the miners strike? What with the Sheffield miners going on strike and the Nottingham ones not...

If so - how's his appointment going to go down with the Forest ultras?

I think you're the only one who does, and that includes his close family. I'm with Stan Ternent on the subject of Warnock. He's also exceptionally oily when he's a pundit on BT Sport. Poor Forest!

You've let SoundsXP down, you've let Manchester City down, you've let your family down, you've let your friends down, you've let football fans down, but, most of all, you've let yourself down.

I think they dislike us for that, but we don't give much of a toss about them. There's a fair section of the Forest fans will welcome him and his fucking 'track record'. They won't care that he's bothered about everything but the football, what all the bollocks whining and moaning and provoking. And of course he sends his teams out to do the same on the pitch. What's even worse is that he's perfectly capable of sending a side out to play a decent game. He just chooses not to.

I'd love to see Forest go up, but I can't really get behind a Warnock team. *sigh*

Seems you won't have to. Apparently he's turned the job down.

Well if so then I'll enjoy a genuinely new life experience - thinking Neil Warnock has done the right thing.

Obviously Forest being a hopeless fucking shambles is fine, that's far from a new experience and I can work with it.

I look forward to a host of hilariously inappropriate names being linked with the job. Y'know like George Graham at 33/1 that sort of thing.

Bez 50/1 - cos let's face it, in a sane world he'd be shorter odds for Forest manager than becoming an MP.

It'll be the usual parade of the recently sacked and ex-players. Anyone decent will be wary, given the shenanigans of late. There's some reasonable names amongst the recently sacked, but it's difficult to get too engaged. Whatever, really, as long as they're focused on playing decent stuff. I'd love us to go up, but this probably isn't the squad for it, whoever's in charge.

Ace. I think I can get behind the lazy crowd-pleasing choice with limited prospects of success. I think he and the fans have long since collectively agreed to pretend that the last time he was in charge Didn't Actually Happen.

I'd completely forgotten he was ever at the Forest helm but a cursory Wikipedia glance tells me he was. Weird.

That's the ticket. If Forest fans keep Not Talking About It everyone else is bound to forget too. Won't be long before we can nip in, tweak Wikipedia and it Will Never Have Happened.
