Well that certainly made your Friday afternoon a lot less boring didn’t it? Martin O’Neill has been sacked as boss at Nottingham Forest, and has been replaced by Frenchman Sabri Lamouchi.

Quite why Martin O’Neill has been sacked is still somewhat of a mystery. Daniel Taylor of the Guardian reported that the players turned against the Irishman and wanted him gone, although the reasons why they wanted him gone are as yet unclear.

Despite his heroics in helping Nottingham Forest achieve their famous back to back European Cup victories in 1979 and 1980, that clearly didn’t hold much credit among the Forest board or supporters as the news has been greeted with rapturous approval by Nottingham Forest fans.

After their failure to secure a playoff spot last season, not helped by their disastrous run of form in April where they lost four games in a row, they took to Twitter to celebrate the news of the Irishman’s departure.

Whilst the majority took the news simply as one sacking, there were a few more who saw this latest news as a damning indictment of what the club has become.
