I don't trust these new owners one bit. Their tenure so far could not have gone any worse!

    We will end up with a weird underwhelming head coach appointment, a squad of Ike Ugbo's and Thiam's with no League One record and they will charge £30 to watch us play Fleetwood on a Tuesday night!
    We need to scratch the 'plan', head coach nonsense and bring in a CEO with some CEO experience but they won't do that.

    They have not done one positive thing apart from new hand dryers.

    Shocking January. McBurnie should have been here in August anyway. Mahoney barely played. Why bring in Knasmullner? Effectively relegate us by signing Matt Mills- a player so bad he is laughed at by Forest fans after his time there. Kieffer Moore I like but it was nowhere near enough to turn the tide on our sinking ship. Even had the cheek to call it a successful window!

    Then they put the final nail in the coffin by appointing some no mark with zero relevant experience in terms of managerial record.

    And now they say we're happy to let Bradshaw go- a player who has consistently banged in 22+ at League One Level and release a club legend who loves the club and also ripped it up in League One very recently!

    Honestly worried we're heading to the Fourth Tier.

    Give them a chance, they came in at a time when we looked relegated. We got relegated but we can rebuild again. Hopefully they'll get creative and pump some cash into the club.

    Let's see who we appoint and sign before we hit the panic button. Let's remember where we were in December 2015. If we sign a hungry manager and players to add to what we've got we'll be fine. Come November I'm pretty sure we'll be up there.

    The Hammill thing baffles me. Lot of quality and still young enough to make a big contribution. Never easy to understand how you can issue a retained list in the absence of a manager.

    If they have started looking or have even got someone in mind to take us forward ..great .They Knew that Jose would leave after derby so youd think that they would have someone in the sights
    We don't know what is happening behind the scenes
    Tell you one thing the time and money spent on the training pitch (must have cost a fortune) To me could have been spent on team matters rather than grass that will never benefit the players or club
    We need someone in NOW not in august when we have bought a 3rd or 4th tear team AGAIN even more now that our most skillfull player has gone

    They were in before Christmas, so I don't think that's true.

    That is filled with so much inaccuracy and conjecture it’s unbelievable.

    1.) The majority of the squad was signed under Cryne’s tenure

    2.) For as much as the plan has fallen down (mainly due to poor handling of key player’s contracts by previous staff) it’s definitely not something to just give up on after 3 years cos we’ve suffered a set back

    3.) As pointed by numerous people already the Bradshaw thing is pure rumour

    4.) McBurnie again, Cryne was in charge in August and it was Swansea’s handling of the situation that messed it all up

    5.) January, people were crying out for a change in squad, we brought in an experienced CB (something people on here have been crying for since KL left), a big striker (see previous) and some players off the continent, of course it was going to be a gamble but virtually every signing we make is.

    6.) Appointing Morias, with hindsight is a terrible decision but in Feb some people were excited and those who weren’t didn’t think or know it was going to be as it was.

    They’ve made 1 major decisions so far, appointing Morias which they got wrong, they’ve been at the helm 5/6 months, if you have had enough now I’d pack it in now because they’re gonna be here a significant amount of time

    Signing Mills didn't relegate us.

    We don’t concede in the last minute against Bristol and we stay up.

    1. Yes, and the new owners had chance to rectify the situation but they gave us Matt Mills

    2. The last 4 years has been a complete waste of time when you think about it. Summer 2014 we had to rebuild a whole new squad in League One and now we are in the exact same position. Ok we have a JPT trophy in the cabinet but the plan has simply not progressed us as a club.

    3. I read a sky sports article that stated Barnsley were happy let Bradshaw go

    4. My point is you can't give the new owners credit for McBurnie because it would have happened anyway after previous events.

    5. Nottingham Forest actually paid to get rid of him, lets just sign McNulty he had a few seasons in the championship. We needed to bring in players with a proven record at our level.

    6. It was clear we needed a manager who knew how to keep teams up in England or again who was proven at our level

    Ok just completly dodge my point. Matt Mills horrendous open net miss & passes into the stand vs Burton and Comical defending at Elland Road cost us 2 points which would have kept us up, therefore by signing him we have relegated ourselves.

    Yes it wasn't the only factor but we'd still be safe if the owners had bothered to get some players with an ounce of talent.

    You say in your initial post that you rate Moore yet he missed an open net against Leeds. Strange that you reference Mills’ yet not Moore in that regard.

    We had a very productive January. The only thing we lacked recruitment wise was a keeper.

    The club is in a stronger position than it was 4 years ago, for one we’ve won a trophy something we haven’t done since 1955. We have a squad of around 25 1st team players some fair enough aren’t good enough but others have simply been operating in a team with no form or confidence, in summer 2014 we had 8 players, including O’Grady who left like a month later, TK and Dom McHale who now plays for some 8th division team. Sky Sports aren’t the Oracle at Delphi they don’t know everything. Matt Mills was a poor signing let it go a season is 46 games not the 5/6 he started in. Nobody really knew what manager we needed, it was a gamble didn’t pay off and even with that we didn’t go down until the last day.
