paultheroyal Can see them going for someone like Alex Neil or the perfect choice be Roy Keane.

Roy 'two clubs, last one in 2011' Keane?

Not sure where else to out this, so here will do.

Being reported that next seasons Championship will be split in 2 unequal halves to accommodate the World Cup.

First half will run 30th July to 12 November and have 21 League games plus 3 rounds of the League Cup. Will restart on the 10th, so whilst WC is at the Quarter Final stage and be finished by 6th May still so that the play off final can still be held on the BH Monday.

Crazy schedule.

No mention of what happens if a club still has a few players at the WC or if L1/L2 will just carry on.

Bad call I think - last thing they need is another defence minded coach.

Agreed. Can see this one ending badly. Which would be a massive shame. Afterall they don't have a 70k a week striker plus a couple of Prem quality loanees to help them over the line this time (maybe Garner will become one mind you)

Can't see Cooper getting/taking it. He got the boot from Swansea because he was trying to angle a move to the Premier League, don't see why he'd be remotely interested in the Forest job. Also they would apparently still have to pay some compensation to Swansea. Not sure how that works.

Got to be worth starting a "Stam to Forest" rumour on Twitter.

Because Cooper quit and had a clause in his deal that if he took a job at a rival club I.e. another Champ club they would have to pay X in compensation.

I feel for Derby here, we must have been close in the past and must remain close to a points deduction with our overspending.

The fans suffer… we would be mortified going through this

Not official yet. They have applied to have them in. So will be next week. I assume there is still a very small chance they could just be wound up.

Deserve everything they get - fiddled the figures (and got found out) and then got Rooney in on the back of a morally iffy gambling deal!

The Brian Clough Trophy may well be a L1 affair next season.

Yeah especially how they’ve been pretty close to promotion on a good few occasions relatively recently. 50% of their last 8 seasons have ended up in the play offs, and two of those got to the final.
