Some Nottingham Forest fans didn’t hold back against former Reds’ boss Billy Davies as they gave their honest verdicts on his tenure.
The discussion happened as this week marked six years since he was sacked by Forest after an abysmal second spell in the dugout. It ended in humiliation after a 5-0 defeat to our hated neighbours Derby County.
Was Billy Davies a good manager for us?
Davies had two spells with us, and both weren’t great. His first spell was between 2009 and 2011 and from 126 matches, he averaged just 1.55 points per game. Following this, he took charge of us again between 2013 and 2014 and accumulated just 1.63 points from 59 games.
Because of this, supporters did not hold fond memories of Davies and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that he could have been a legend with us, but instead tripped over his own ego and “left looking a fool and an idiot”.
