You’d think they’d have given us more of a heads up on this. It’s certainly been a busy day on the banks of the Trent. There was a lot of fuss and feather this morning as the new home shirt was revealed, but this afternoon brought a whirlwind of change.

First we learn of the sacking of Martin O’Neill, then less than 20 minutes later the club swiftly appointed Frenchman Sabri Lamouchi to the role of manager at the City Ground, giving the impression that this sort of thing has been in the works for some time.

The name certainly came out of nowhere for Nottingham Forest fans as a lot of them were sent scrambling to Google and Wikipedia to find out who the new man in charge is. Unless you know your French football, he’s hardly a household name.

After they did their research, they came back a little bit underwhelmed and took to Twitter to express their confusion over their new manager. A lot of fans took the chance to show they are still clambering for the return of Aitor Karanka, who was sacked by the club in January despite being 7th in the table.

  • I wasn’t very optimistic when O’Neil was appointed, but, I got used to the idea. I was ready, for the new season to start. We then get the news that keano had left, to persue management again. Which every red dog knows was shit, because he’s a crap manager. So the question is. Did he get wind of what was going to happen? I think he jumped, before he was pushed. I’ve been a red for 40 years now, and the last 10 years have left me traumatised. I honestly don’t know weather we will ever see the promised land again. As for Lamouchi, I honestly can’t see him lasting longer than Christmas. We shall see. COYR
