    I'm gutted by the report. I hoped that when Fawaz sold, things would get better, but they've got a lot worse.

    He was asked to go and meet Fawaz at his London house but he refused.

    Fawaz was incompetent and a chancer. The reports you read about Marinakis are much worse than this if they are true. Unfortunately, I think that they probably are.

    What a relief.

    Loved his interview with the BBC regarding getting the pride back into the club, connecting with the fans and the youth of Nottingham.

    Based on? (bearing in mind the consortium has just passed the Owners' and Directors' test).

    Careful now. It's very easy to be suckered in by words at this stage. Talking from experience...

    Bob on, Fawaz got me hook line and sinker I'm embarrassed to say when showing us his palaces and super cars on the BBC. However Marinakis said he's making no promises other than to work hard and that the Championship is a hard league. Non of this 3rd star bullshit that Fawaz professed when he came in. Also listening to Olympiacos fans and what he's done for that club gives me hope. The 10% reduction in season ticket prices and a well regarded professional executive team installed today is very pleasing to see.

    This is Forest though, so the odds of it blowing up in our face and we all end up looking like a set of ****s is good.

    Even if that were to happen, we'd still be better off than if we had stayed with Fawaz. :laugh:

    :iagree

    Yeah, me too but back then, why wouldn't you look on the absolute positive. To think how it all panned out with Billy going all 'poisoned dwarf' on us as well is almost funny now in a bizzare way.

    It'll be different this time.... won't it?

    Heard this all before. We had Forest clown on our board a while back giving it the big one about signing players for millions off pounds and storming the league because they had an Arab worth shit loads. This is another one where it will all end in tears. Hope so because when Forest are shit you NEVER see Redman. Funny that

    Don't believe you.

    Some quality Forest v Brighton 'debates' on here not so long ago...and I think that's why you mention him a lot - fair play though, it was entertaining. The difference is the likes of Daddy wasn't up to it and got banned, whereas Redman did nowt wrong and has chose to abstain (for whatever reason).

    Anyway, back on thread...If you want to play us the season after next and re-kindle the banter, then whatever you do next season... do not get relegated :whistle

    He's put the season ticket prices down good move got me back with that and the intrigue of new ownership. it's got to be a positive that they have run a pretty successful club. Is he a friend of fawaz? I've no doubt there will be some people wanting to embrace the change and some wanting to lambast it just so they can say I told you so. Let's hope for the best and see what happens!

    He has said all the right things so far. Knows how to run a football club, has put quality staff in place already (its clear he has been running the club for a few months now). We will have to just wait and see, I can't remember the last time the club was run well so fingers crossed for a fresh start.
