Playmaker: Nottingham’s Forest’s mad, mad summer

The summer is always a hectic period for any football club, but no team this summer has had it quite as bad as Nottingham Forest.

The 28th June saw Martin O’Neill surprisingly sacked as manager of Forest, only for the club to announce a replacement for the club icon 18 minutes later in the form of former Stade Rennais boss Sabri Lamouchi (per BBC Sport). Assistant manager Roy Keane also departed the club a few days earlier (per BBC Sport).

As Matchday with Max from Two-Footed Talk explains in the video below, it has been a mad summer so far for Forest supporters.

Indeed, it has been a hectic window for Forest as well in terms of players arriving and leaving. The Nottingham-based club signed a trio of Portuguese players in the form of Yuri Ribeiro and Alfa Semedo from Benfica (per BBC Sport) as well as Tiago Silva from Feirense (per BBC Sport).

Forest also recruited two players from Premier League sides in the form of Arijanet Muric from Manchester City on loan for the season (per BBC Sport) as well as Aston Villa winger Albert Adomah on a permanent deal (per BBC Sport).
