Many Nottingham Forest supporters have reacted to the latest news regarding the next manager at the club following Chris Hughton’s departure.
The 62-year-old took over at the start of last season and guided Forest to safety with 52 points, but this season has struggled.
Following the departure of Hughton, news has emerged from The Athletic’s Paul Taylor that former Swansea City manager Steve Cooper is on the Forest radar, with his ability to improve young players and track record of leading Swansea to back-to-back playoffs noted.
But with the likes of Chris Wilder, Frank Lampard and Alex Neil available, there has been mixed reaction amongst the Forest fanbase regarding the link with Cooper.
Steven Reid will take temporary charge of the first team, for the time being, starting with Huddersfield Town on Saturday.
Forest fans react to Cooper links
These Forest fans have taken to Twitter to react to the news linking Cooper with the vacancy at the City Ground, as one supporter called the latest links ‘dreadful’.
“Another defensive manager, lol, when will we ever learn.”
“I’d take him in a heartbeat.”
“No no no. It’s Hughton all over again. Defensive, lacking creativity. Only three teams had fewer shots on goal than Swansea. Really bad posession rate and pass completion rate. If this is the man, I’m sorry to say Forest are blinded again. You get the football you hire.”
“Would be a dreadful appointment and exactly same kind of manager we had for last 4 appointments”
“Happy with Cooper, seems like a progressive manager and used to managing on a tight budget.”
“I hope so…but I hope its more than a sticking plaster, over the cracks within the club!”
