MW was bang average and whether we like it or not he wasn't going to fulfil the ambitions of big Stelios.

End of, and I'm glad about it!
At least we don't need to go through the usual machinations that a few bad posts on here swung a decision that is way above our pay grade.

Let's have a quick appointment and look forward to two televised games and a good new year. At least we avoid the total national embarrassment of "to me to you" girly tippy tappy football played amongst the back 9.

Our defence is so bad Burnley want Worrall for 12 million quid.
Say's it all.

New manager has to be Karanka for me.

A brilliant post 22. Stop trying to use this page to get your fan Karanka it’s very underhand when you know fine well that Marinakis is totally manipulated by going’s on on this site

Sorry to see him go, no manager gets a proper chance it seems these days, it's ridiculous.

The only good thing is that hopefully we don't have to hear people harp on about tippy happy, no plan B nonsense anymore, well hope so anyway, let's see how the new manager will play.

No doubt there will be many fans ready to jump on his back as soon as they have a bad run of results. Here we go again.

Karanka got the sack from Middlesbrough why and you think he's going to do a better job at forest also what makes you think any manager would come here with the sackings every 6 months also they will look at what budget they will get for transfers that is the key to who will come here if it's a crap budget it's going to be a crap manager simples welcome back df

Warburton is a average manager, but what top managers would have wanted to join a club short of cash that could easily have been a League 1 club this season?

Warburton had ambition, and had a point to prove when he left Rangers the way he did.

Warburton tried to change too much at the club too quickly, in the end he failed to improve the defence as a unit, played players in positions that they were not suited to, played too many young players, and had no short term plan, just a long term plan.

Once the team failed to keep The City Ground a fortress, of which the wins we had there were what was keeping us at the right end of the table then it was a case of how much the board trusted in what he was trying to do.

This is a bad time for a manager to join us, January transfer windows are usually very expensive, and we are short of money.

All we can do is hope the new manager can organise the team better than Warburton did.

I'm not a Billy fan but to be fair Ginger we haven't had a decent Manager who knew what he was doing on the pitch since the poisoned dwarf left.

The trouble is people read what others have to say, especially the bad about any manager that joins us then use the sound bites when things go wrong, it is as if they are wanting things to go wrong so they can use those sound bites.

The budget will be less than a million and the manager can have half of whatever he can generate from selling players that he deems surplus to requirements of which there is plenty of.

Well, I've heard it all now!
Allow me to answer a couple of these in one hit.

1. Every manager has been sacked? At least pick one with experience who actually won something or has got promotion out of this league.

2. This is not a small club with no money! Stop running the club down!
This club is one of the top 30 in the land.
You do not just walk into a job at Forest because no one else wanted to do it? It is an honour to manage this club (it also pays over a million quid a year!) and an appointment here is something that will go down in the history books that you can tell your children about.

For some, it may even be a stepping stone? But for those who care it is everything.

This is a GREAT club and a serious appointment for any manager.
But hey, I guess there's a shortage of people who want to earn over a million a year and be on the telly every weekend.

Would you please explain, if we are such a top club nowadays, why did both

Clough and Rowlett reject the chance to join us?
