New rumour on bird site tonight saying Clough and Pearce are going to be taking over from DF.
Not my rumour so don't have a pop at me.
Anyone but fawaz running the club and I wouldn't believe it but we've seen it all since he's been here so you never know.

Cannock Forest

1.) 28 Oct 2015 22:56:49
Ridiculous! 😳.

2.) 29 Oct 2015 09:35:08
I do like how you said that would be your dream management team Cannock then you've spotted it on the bird site good work.

3.) 29 Oct 2015 09:45:32
Lol Ry, totally agree mate, and then agrees with his own post because no one else will, hilarious.
DF just needs to be left to get on with his job and given a proper amount of time in which to operate, things are looking promising even if the results aren't showing it just yet, patience:)

4.) 29 Oct 2015 09:57:49
I totally agree Gingerkid

I guarantee Nigel Clough will not do any better than what Dougie is doing now. I just wish Forest fans could see what he is trying to do at the club and the good work he has done already. It's going to take time, but we all know about Fawaz being trigger-happy. I just hope he has learned his lessons from the past. Stability is what we need and I am confident results will improve.

5.) 29 Oct 2015 11:07:07
I agree Forest Forever, we'll just have faith in Deadly Doug. The 2 recent performances suggest that. COYR!

6.) 29 Oct 2015 11:22:49
When did I say that would my dream management team?
Some people on here are just beyond words?

7.) 29 Oct 2015 12:08:39
" I would have liked to have seen nigel and Psycho work together". Is what he is referring to I guess.

8.) 29 Oct 2015 12:12:51
Sorry Cannock you would like to have seen them work together then you spot it on bird site pretty much same thing.

9.) 29 Oct 2015 16:23:14
I bet Fawaz could set the team up better than DF and get better results.

10.) 29 Oct 2015 19:53:49
I wonder I this has anything to do with the Stuart Pearce consortium rumour.

11.) 31 Oct 2015 20:30:00
I would to see DF turn it round but I don't honestly think he can. If I did I would say give him more time. Sadly I think Derby will be his last game if we lose. If we win them like SP it will buy him a few more games, but come end of the season we will have a different manager.
Personally I would like to see Pearson given the job.



28 Oct 2015 06:09:58
Telegraph are saying we will target Cloughie if DF goes. I really don't think fawaz and mcgovern should pick next manager.
I love Cloughie as a player but surely we can target a better manager than him when DF goes?

Cannock Forest

1.) 28 Oct 2015 08:16:37
Type if manager forest need.
can sort out the team, he's not afraid to upset the big players and drop them for younger players.
he turned Derby round when they needed it. He built the Base for what that have now.
Hughes, hendrick etc he developed.
he scouted lower leagues and Scotland well. Eg Martin etc.

Anyone who says he's not the type we need is clueless.

2.) 28 Oct 2015 08:29:19
Can't help thinking Derby would have been promoted last season if they stuck with clough. He had them going in the right direction, until McClaren ballsed it up. I'd take clough any day.

3.) 28 Oct 2015 08:32:19
Really? His attitude is all wrong, lost all respect for him when he was at Derby when he said he would swap all his goals at Forest for 1 Derby goal. Also made some nasty comments in his interviews about his own players and other teams undeservedly, not really the sort of character who i feel would instill a good atmosphere at Forest.

4.) 28 Oct 2015 08:33:31
Well you obviously know your stuff darren.

5.) 28 Oct 2015 09:03:11
I would have liked to have seen nigel and Psycho work together.

6.) 28 Oct 2015 09:23:06
Who are you suggesting then Cannock?
Darren made a lot of sense although Freedman should be given longer in my opinion, nothing won or lost yet.

7.) 28 Oct 2015 09:37:03
You know who I would like to see get the manager job? Actually wait. Dougie Freedman. Why can't for once we stick with a manager? In my eyes he's done an amazing job. He's cut the bill to what he wants, he's got rid of the dead weight I. e abdoun etc, and the players he's brought in are fantastic, Olivera, mendes, mills etc whilst being under an embargo! It's not his fault he's got 10 injuries, such as assombalonga and tesche, I'm only 16 but I've been watching forest for 10 years and the football we play isn't bad, there's nothing wrong with it in my eyes. If he had a full squad then I'm sure we wouldn't be having having this conversation to be honest. Why don't the fans get behind Dougie because he's our manager, what's the point of sacking him? Well just go through the whole cycle again and won't get anywhere, ridiculous.

8.) 28 Oct 2015 10:02:04
Well said tdog, someone who uses a bit of common and sees the wider picture, however despite all I fear that the next 3 games will decide DF's fate and the never ending cycle will begin again, its madness if he his sacked, let's give a manger at least a season in charge. let's face it Cannock and co will soon want the next one out if it doesn't go to plan.

9.) 28 Oct 2015 10:12:14
Well said and a wise head, if only some of the normal manager out posters had the same knowledge.

10.) 28 Oct 2015 10:40:26
I'm not disagreeing with Darren on what he says balanced. I just think it would be a gamble and wEve had that many managers it might be a gamble too many.

I personally am a fan of rowett which could be argued would be a gamble too.

11.) 28 Oct 2015 12:15:36
He is under contract at Birmingham, in a play off position, why would he want to come?

12.) 28 Oct 2015 12:56:37
I think df has done well with recruitment and we have a good squad which will be v strong when the injured players come back but there is no getting away from the fact that he has made some odd tactical decisions and has spoken some complete nonsense at times, however I do think we need to stick with him as I don't think we can particularly get anybody whose going to improve us atm - not one of the df out brigade has been able to propose an alternative manager who would improve us and could actually come to us or work in the conditions we are in ie. ffp/fawaz etc. until I can think of a realistic option or one of the 'outers' suggests someone df has got my full support.

13.) 28 Oct 2015 13:24:49
The DF out brigade don't choose the next manager. So it doesn't matter who we suggest to you.
You carry on supporting DF no one is stopping you.
Change is needed higher up than the manager. Until then we won't improve.

14.) 28 Oct 2015 13:47:19
spot on 2tone!

15.) 28 Oct 2015 16:08:25
If it all goes t! t5 up for Dougie which I hope it doesn't I'd like to see us go for someone like Nigel Adkins! He's a top manager and I'd personally love to see him at the CG, whoever comes in, if anyone does I'll still be down there supporting our lads, because they need us now more than ever
KTF people

Yoooooooou Reeeeeeeeds.

16.) 28 Oct 2015 18:23:36
Cannock - I don't support df, I support forest. I don't agree with everything df does and I don't agree with everything that fawaz does. Surprisingly I disagree with almost everything you say-mainly because its a constant whine about the club I love with no answers to the issues that you bring up. If you had some answers or at least offered a few options i'd love to read your comments and i'd value your opinion, even if I didn't agree with them but I can't ever see that happening.

17.) 28 Oct 2015 19:00:02
You keep saying I have no answers and I keep giving them



14 Oct 2015 10:53:56
Anyone else think Fridays game in Bristol could be dougies's last?

Cannock Forest

1.) 14 Oct 2015 12:46:46
To put it bluntly - No
and if anyone does think that they must be crazy.

2.) 14 Oct 2015 13:38:13
Well should we lose, how many more matches will he be allowed to turn it round?

3.) 14 Oct 2015 16:34:33
Would never advocate giving Freedman the boot, but you can't argue his record ain't that great.

If we get beat paying too much respect to Bristol City with the defensive approach then you would have to contemplate the fact Dougie hasn't the all round game to keep us out a relegation scrap.

4.) 14 Oct 2015 17:27:38
Brilliant a few weeks ago he couldn't do know wrong away wins at qpr and Birmingham who were unbeaten at the time then quite a dominant display against Middlesbrough. Now it's freedman out who shall we get in mourinho or guardiola

5.) 14 Oct 2015 18:06:16
Cannock what do you expect from this season? We are looking like a mid table side who with a bit of luck and Britt possibly back early 2016 could make a push to sneak a play off position. DF should have all season as a minimum-another sacking could result in a relegation scrap and who would have the guts to apply for the vacant managers job? Certainly no one who would please you.

6.) 14 Oct 2015 18:31:20
Dominant display against boro? You're deluded pal. Just because we got 2 wins you can't live off that for the rest of the year.

7.) 14 Oct 2015 18:45:42
2 tone we are looking more relegation fodder than mid table under DF. You don't know who would apply for the job so you shouldn't make such bold statements

8.) 14 Oct 2015 18:51:11
Just because you lose a couple doesn't mean you sack your manager. We are under an embargo with a lot of injuries I guess some fans are never happy

9.) 14 Oct 2015 19:24:33
Lose a couple? Are you taking the wee wee?

10.) 14 Oct 2015 19:44:42
Yawn yawn yawn Cannock!!
But i do agree with the poster about it being important to start being more positive away from home. Stop basing selections on simply being away. Let's go out and take the game to the lesser teams and not give them too much respect. After that performance last night there are no excuses for not playing williams more. He is clearly a class act and would improve our side. Would like to see a midfield trio of Lansbury, Vaughan and williams start on Friday and play a far more forward pressing game. If we aren't playing mancienne at centre back I am actually pleased he isn't available. He is a hindrance in midfield and one of the main reasons we don't play further up the pitch

11.) 14 oct 2015 19:54:36
keeno so you think i'm wrong to slag off freedman and then post about everything you think he's doing wrong? If only you were manager keeno. You should put your name forward.

12.) 14 oct 2015 20:39:30
get rid of douggie win lose or draw

13.) 14 oct 2015 20:40:52
cannock - if you got your way and got rid of df keeno would probably be the calibre of manager that we'd be looking at-no offence keeno 😊 but hopefully you get what i mean although i do think some fans will only be happy when the clubs destroyed!!

14.) 14 oct 2015 20:54:58
i think pearson would be interested

15.) 14 oct 2015 21:47:28
pearson would last about 5 games if he didn't start winning straight away you'd want rid

16.) 14 oct 2015 21:56:38

{Ed003's Note - lets keep this civil please}

17.) 14 oct 2015 21:58:23
2 tone df and fawaz are not exactly helping the club from destruction it's nothing to do with me. I only want the best for nffc as i'm sure we all do.

18.) 14 oct 2015 22:08:12
having a good run of wins would be good even pearce managed that let's just carry on losing because of the ffp rules lol

19.) 14 oct 2015 22:20:43
i know its not all rosey at the cg but fawaz is putting money in and df is working hard and has now got a good bunch of players that he will hopefully get working together soon.

20.) 14 oct 2015 22:32:49
it could be argued 2 tone that fawaz has caused ou r current position. Df isn't capable of getting us out of our current position. Let's wish him well and aim a bit higher.

21.) 14 oct 2015 23:00:13
the crowds attendance at the city ground and away saying it all at the minute can't remember the last time i was excited about watching forest play and that's what its all about can any of u remember the last time u got excited about watching forest 🔥 fire

22.) 14 oct 2015 23:20:53
cannock you talk of pearson but he was garbage at leicester initially. He did well because he got time to get a settled squad and build something. With your logic constantly he would have gone long before he got to that point. I'm not saying df is the right man but he deseves an opportunity to find out when the club is in a settled position with his squad assembled and settled. If he has that opportunity and it doesn't work then yes, get rid, but the past few years has proved that short term targets and chopping and changing simply does not work on the whole

23.) 15 oct 2015 06:44:45
keeno if what you say is right (and i agree with you actually). Then why did we sack pearce? I don't want a manager sacked every 5 minutes but df isn't the right man for the job. Even when he wins a game he changes the team and cocks it up. You talk of a settled side but df doesn't seem to want a settled side. Whether you like df or not i think we are all agreed we haven't got a clue what his tactics are all about.

24.) 15 oct 2015 08:43:28
freedman is doing a quality job.

25.) 15 Oct 2015 09:50:02
And I agree with the principal around SP. I'd have given him the season definitely. The only difference I would say is that the results might not be there but the performances at the moment are far better than they were under SP. They were some of the worst I have seen for a long time. And on the tactically poor subject u mentioned, SP was worse by a long way. Least we look reasonably organised, solid, working hard at the moment. We looked disorganised, no effort, no commitment under SP and I think a bit part of it was the fact that he appeared to have lost the dressing room. I do agree with your point though

26.) 15 Oct 2015 10:49:27
We can't just keep getting rid of managers after 6-12 months because things are not going our way. It takes times to build a squad and DF has not had any money to do so. I was against sacking Pearce too, but sure look how that turned out. There is not much out there at the moment. So why not stop complaining for once and get behind the team. We could be top of the Championship and people will find an excuse to complain. You either love the club or you don't. We are called Supporters no Moaners!

27.) 15 Oct 2015 12:50:38
Cannock, with your cheery outlook on everything I would imagine you are on the phone to the Samaritans every day. Did you actually watch the Boro game? A draw was the least we deserved and very unlucky to not get all 3 against Huddlesfield. We are missing 3 of our best players through injury, whether they all regain full fitness remains to be seen but still they are all a big miss. DF has had no money to spend but through the sale of Antonio has managed to get some very good loanees in which has strengthened us all over. Mendes has settled very quick and looks great. Of course I would prefer to be top 6 right now but the team is looking much stronger than the start of the season, I would also expect us to get all 3 on Friday too. I think under the circumstances DF has done a good job. Remember we are only just into October, a bit early to be hitting the panic button I think. I see there are still a lot of positive comments on here too which is great and I think we should all get behind the manager and team, all this talk of a new manager is just ridiculous. 3 points Friday, come on!

28.) 15 Oct 2015 16:24:43
Barring any more injuries I'm quietly optimistic that this team will keep getting better and hopefully come on strong in the latter part of the season. I'd rather sneak in the back door late on than be up there now.

29.) 16 Oct 2015 06:38:41
Through the sale of Antonio? How does that one work? None of that money was used on any loan player as that is against ffp rules so I'm not buying that comment. Nobody has moaned about the players he's bought in and nobody is arguing about weather the squad is better than the start of the season. Its what is happening on the points front that people aren't happy. We have a very strong squad but he continues to put square pegs in round holes and playing mills at the back whe mm and Hobbs were both fit. Ginger are you happy that we have won 1 drawn 1 and lost 8 of our last 10 home games? Do you think that is acceptable? Because I don't.

30.) 16 Oct 2015 10:47:45
So Selling Antonio didn't free up any money to spend on new loanee wages? I'm sure Antonio wasn't playing for free. I didn't say people were moaning about the players brought in or that people were arguing whether or not we are stronger, they were just statements showing we are moving in the right direction so no need to get out of your tricky tree about it mate. Yeah, the points don't lie of course but I honestly don't think we are very far from getting it right and moving up the table. Quoting stats included from last season isn't realistic but if you think they are relative to where we are now you carry on. DF has had to make a lot of changes and has brought new players in and I think it is starting to show promise, there are bound to be some disappointing results during transition but just think we should be a bit more patient is all.



07 Oct 2015 09:57:18
Does anyone think Brendan Rogers would drop back into the championship? Wherever he goes next will be a step down from the size of a club like Liverpool. But how far down the ladder would he drop?

PS is he breaking those teeth in for a donkey?

Cannock Forest

1.) 07 Oct 2015 11:07:13
Dream on,
I think he has developed too much of an ego to drop into the Championship.

He will be nailed on for the likes of Newcastle Villa Southampton Spurs or Everton if there are manager changes. Failing that he will go abroad like Moyes where he can rebuild his reputation.

2.) 07 Oct 2015 12:21:02
More chance of getting Roy Rogers, a man who'd play Hoof ball!

3.) 07 Oct 2015 13:16:11
Thought I was Mr negative on here lol



04 Oct 2015 14:23:03
Jimmy Floyd hasselbank for new manager. He's had 5 minutes at Forest and wouldn't need to move house coming from Burton. He's doing something right at the moment.

Cannock Forest

1.) 04 Oct 2015 18:52:05
Why do we need a new manager? that's the last thing we need to change right now. We do need a Reid/McGugan style free kick taker though.

2.) 04 Oct 2015 23:27:41
Cos the manager we have is taking us down

3.) 05 Oct 2015 09:54:36
What a great case and argument you put Cannock, lol. I'm not saying everything he does is perfect but there is obvious improvement in the team from last season and we do still have some key players to return from injury.

We have played very well indeed this last month and think we have a lot to be optimistic about and can only see us getting stronger. We have new players in the team which will stake a while to settle in, Mendes already has. I think we are looking good, remember it is only just October, 3 wins and all of a sudden your in the play-offs.

We all know swapping managers doesn't work and were one of the worst, look at Newcastle too, I think we need to get behind Dougie as he is really trying to improve us.

28 Oct 2015 19:30:11
Not a DF fan as some of may be aware lol. However if these rumours about NC turn out to be true then I think it's totally unprofessional and disrespectful to Dougie and yet another example of how Fawaz runs our club.
As I say if it's true?

Cannock Forest

1.) 28 Oct 2015 20:43:37
Maybe the professional way of dealing with the manager is to let him do his job and honour his contract? If fawaz employed him to settle the ship, sort the squad out and see us through the embargo (which would make sense) isn't that what he's doing?

2.) 28 Oct 2015 23:51:35
Still don't think this would work. two awesome players. not so great managers TBH.



23 Oct 2015 19:43:45
Has anyone seen the pathetic statement released by the club regarding Mr hunter?
I know fawaz keeps harping on about our European champions but could anyone seriously have seen Cloughie standing for his actions. He would have thrown him off Trent Bridge.
I personally want DF out but I'm scared who he would pick next.

Cannock Forest

1.) 23 Oct 2015 20:03:47
Not heard anything about it cannock, but your right about Cloughie he wouldn't take any sh! te off anybody LOL.
I'd just like to say great news about Carl Froch's little baby girl Penelope beaten meningitis and is allowed home. Brian looking down on a baby Red.

Yoooooooou Reeeeeeeds.

2.) 23 Oct 2015 20:22:29
What actions are those that your talking about?

3.) 23 Oct 2015 20:30:38
Statement of facts. Why do you expect anything else why should they go into detail. He has left for what ever reason. Stop running club down and inventing problems.

4.) 23 Oct 2015 21:45:26
Why are a lot of people assuming that Hunter leaving has anything to do with Fawaz, the man as left for whatever reason, what that reason is i don't know and neither does anyone outside the club.

{Ed003's Note - probably didn't get paid is my guess.}



20 Oct 2015 21:37:24
Couldn't make us up at the minute. Great captains contribution. I really hope you stay off twitter you top hat.

Cannock Forest

If Lansbury had one more brain cell he'd be a lettuce!!

2.) 20 Oct 2015 21:48:17
Yea Lansbury you made a mistake so stay off social media. are you mad in the head? players aren't robots and can make mistakes. blows my mind how people react to stuff like this. there human just like us (well most of us) and humans make mistakes.

3.) 20 Oct 2015 23:08:58
Sorry but good captains lead by example and keep a cool head especially having just gone ahead. Surely keeping 11 on the field is a must.

4.) 21 Oct 2015 00:07:18
Just like Roy keane did or zidane did or gerrard or ronaldo you mean those sort of captains?

5.) 21 Oct 2015 02:00:35
Yes that's right hot heads like those. Great players like those or Sunday morning players. If your captain gets himself sent off in a situation like that it doesn't matter who you are your letting yourself down. He deliberately left his foot in, no excuse.

6.) 21 Oct 2015 08:00:26
So those players wernt any good nor were they good leaders because they made a mistake? it wasn't long ago when we were calling out for a bit of grit a steel in midfield.



17 Oct 2015 09:54:22
No rallying war cry from Fawaz on twitter. Could this be the end for DF?

Cannock Forest

1.) 17 Oct 2015 10:56:20
Fingers crossed it is.

2.) 17 Oct 2015 11:12:46
Both Fawaz and DF are clueless. What does Lennie Lawrence do.

3.) 17 Oct 2015 12:15:39
Sorry lenny but when I see you sat on the bench you look like youve been let out of the care home for the day. I feel like putting a tartan blanket over your lap and making you a flask up!
