Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Hmm, I do wonder if he's your Billy Davies- both men seemed to become somewhat un-sackable by virtue of getting promotion, though both obviously have their faults.

We never really played good football under Billy, and by the end of the season his transfer signings were starting to appear a bit ropey (spending the January window buying loads of midfielders and fullbacks when what we needed was cover in the centre of defence and up front.) That's not to denigrate what he did, but his limitations were already there, add in his attitude after we won at Wembley and his snotty relationship with the board and in an ideal world we should have parted company there and then. I do wonder how long CC will last at Forest, I suppose he'll be fairly safe so long as you don't look like relegation candidates.
