Sunday afternoon saw Dougie Freedman relieved of his duties as first team manager of Championship side Nottingham Forest, after a string of poor results saw the club’s hopes of making the play-offs all but extinguished.
The sacking means that Forest are now in the hunt for their eleventh manager in five seasons, and the fans will be hopeful that any new appointment can help the club regain its position in England’s top flight.
Freedman was sacked following Forest’s 3-0 home defeat to Sheffield Wednesday a result which inflicted a fifth defeat in six games, and saw the club slip to 14th position in the Championship table.
Things had looked good for Freedman at the turn of the year with the club on a 13 match unbeaten run which had them sitting just five points off a coveted play-off position, but the form couldn’t be replicated and it has now cost the Scotsman his job.
Our landlord here in The Transfer Tavern considers the Forest job to be somewhat a poisoned chalice, but he has took the time to come up with FIVE managers who should be considered to be the club’s next boss……
