Is a few people who haven't been mentioned that might be worth considering in my eyes : Paul Lambert and Roberto Di Matteo. Both won promotion from this league and build solid foundations in PL. Di Matteo won Champions League too!

I'm not sure, but was Paul Lambert the manager that was doing well at Norwich and let them in the mire thinking the grass was greener somewhere else, then struggled at his new club.

Thanks 2star, do you think at the time Villa were better than Lambert's Norwich.

I can’t remember if he took over villa in the PL or champ. I do think villa had been going backwards for a while when he went there.

Didn't he also have a go with Blackburn, but didn't do anything for them? Admittedly they were in a worse position than us, so understandable. I have a mate who's a Norwich fan, and he said Lambert was brilliant until it all went wrong!

Kevin Nolan isn't doing a bad job at county and he wouldn't have to travel far, and we could always loan them a few players for compo,

Yeah Lambert came to Norwich when they were on the up with new owners and took them from League 1 to solid Premiership finish but then moved to Villa who were in trouble finically and has a poor season and got sacked just above Relegation zone (obviously they got relegated in the end) before going to toxic Blackburn where he also struggled and parted ways but I still rate him and his win rate still isn’t bad and I feel the squad and state of Forest as a club is much more like Norwich was Than the other clubs he struggled at!
Di Matteo wouldn’t be a choice to me as I think he only works well with big transfer budgets and even then his buys for Villa in this league he didn’t do well with but still surprised nither of these names have been mentioned was my point really!
