    Asked to be released from his contract, find that a bit odd. Or it’s code for “ removed from his position but we’ve signed a settlement agreement & announcing it this way is part of his deal”

    A Nottingham Forest manager left their job in every year from 2011 to 2017. I am convinced that's why they waited until early January 2019, to end that streak.

    Whoever takes over will be Forest's 16th manager since 2001.

    Gary Rowett is available ;)

    You would think Jokanovic would be in the frame? Be interesting to see what he says to this one considering he told us he “wasn’t ready to return yet”.

    Jokanovic would be perfect but depends if he's happy counting his Fulham compo.

    Alan Nixon has already tweeted that if the money is right it is a goer. Be a great appointment for Forest if they could get him

    Paul Clement?

    I wish this had happened next week and not this week. We play them at the weekend and losing your manager sometimes lifts the team

    Pearce till the end of the season then it's about time Billy Davies had another go?

    Karanka doesn't seem to have any bottle. I remember him throwing a fit and leaving during Middlesbrough's promotion season when the pressure was mounting.

    Well for once at least it’s not the fans fault as the crowds have been exceptionally supportive.

    A shame but we move on... Jokanovic would be ideal I think.

    Forest have now had 26 managers since they were relegated from the Premier League.

    I thought he was doing quite well, wasn't it their best season in years at this point?

    They spent millions and were dubbed Wolves 2.0 by many in pre-season. It doesn't seem like their Portuguese players are near their ones though.

    According to this he walked away. Maybe some behind the scenes shenanigans?

    Jardim and Jokanovic would both be superb managers for forest.
    Calibre and quality of managers has gone up in this league the last few years, so no reason why forest can't tempt them.

    You make Jokanovic sound like a world class manager there.

    He's got 2 promotions in 3 seasons and was manager of two of the best attacking teams in recent years.
    He would definitely be a good appointment for forest imo.
