    It is a mad stat considering especially they have been in the same league for a good few years. Normally you would look at something like that and expect it to be spread out over many years and the teams being in different leagues. So to be in the same league and have that stat is screwed up big time. I guess it goes to show that there really is a very short shelf life as a manager of certain clubs in Championship football.

    I do think there is a possibility that by the time they play each other again at least one will be gone. I say that because I suspect that depending on when they play each other Rowett could well have been poached by a bigger club.

    Quite incredible.

    It was the fifth successive match between the two sides with BOTH teams being led by different managers.

    So that's 10 new managers for two teams across five fixtures.

    Rowett vs Warburton Mar 17
    McClaren vs Montanier Dec 16
    Wassall vs Williams Mar 16
    Clement vs Freedman Nov 15
    McClaren vs Pearce Jan 15.




    LOL - It's no surprise to me Mate.

    Don't forget I'm a Forest fan! Click here to enlarge

    I've been complaining, and writing about our 'troubles' (the OWNER!) all along,
    and all those Managers that have come, and gone since.

    Still, it is a shocking stat to see it in that Derby connection.



    CHEERS! Click here to enlarge

    I've always liked Rangers, but I don't follow them closely enough to know who all the good players
    are, so I don't know what to think?

    If Warburton wants to raid his former club, I really don't know to expect?

    What kind of class of player he's bringing in?

    Rangers might be pleased to see some of their players go, all depending on who, what their wages
    are, and how much time they have on their contracts?

    Surely Rangers will fight to keep their best?

    Once again I don't follow Rangers close enough to know what kind of financial backing they have?

    With Forest's tight-assed Owner, we've hardly had any money at all to spend the past 5 yrs the guy
    has been here.

    So now Warburton is planning on raiding Rangers, but I really would've thought Rangers could
    easily match any offers the Forest Owner (Fawaz Al Hasawi) is planning?

    If it's Al Hasawi on his own that is...

    Of course the latest rumours are, that Al Hasawi has once again reestablished talks with Greek
    Olympiakos owner Evangelos Marinakis, and that the deal is going to get done for Marinakis
    to buy a share of the ownership at Forest.

    This is very troubling to most of the Forest fans who don't want Marinakis at our club. He's had
    troubles in Greece for match-fixing(?), and has supposedly been tied to the Greek underworld(?)

    Supposedly it was Marinakis that wanted Warburton - which none of the Forest fans have a problem with
    Warburton at all, but we wanted out current Owner Al Hasawi, to have the intelligence, and ambition to
    make an approach to Warburton himself, and not because Al Hasawi was actually promising to spend
    someone else's (Marinakis) money!

    Right now this whole thing is one big mystery, as to why Warburton really came to Forest, and what
    it was that he was told, and promised?

    Al Hasawi is NOT to be trusted, and if for some reasons talks with Marinakis broke down, I wouldn't be
    at all surprised if Warburton left us in the Summer, or sooner, as Al Hasawi alone won't want to dig into
    his own pockets to bring in much of anyone. Which is one of the biggest reasons why we have had so
    many Managers come, and go in the five years we've been under Al Hasawi's rule.

    Yes, some Managers were sacked, but others chose to leave because of the broken promises, and many
    Managers that had been interviewed turned down the Forest job, because it was known what sort of
    person, and owner Al Hasawi was / is.

    LOL Hell, some unemployed Managers, over the past several years during one of Forest's many Manager
    hunts, even ruled themselves out of the running for the City Ground, just as soon as they'd heard their
    names in connection with the job! Word had got around by then - Al Hasawi was a tight-ass.

    When Forest Boss Philippe Montanier was sacked, I'd figured we'd be left with our two Caretaker Bosses
    until at least the end of the season, or Al Hasawi would quickly fill the vacancy with yet another unknown
    from the continent.

    The whole Rangers thing - with us getting both Frank McParland, and then Warburton has been a huge
    surprise to me (more of a shock!). I mean I figured we would get Warburton, after we'd gotten McParland,
    but I'm really surprised that either of them would've wanted to come to Forest, after everything that's
    happened in the past 5 years since Al Hasawi has done his best to ruin the club.

    The question(s) on my mind, and most every Forest supporter's minds...WHAT did Al Hasawi say to
    McParland? What did he promise him, and how did Al Hasawi lure Warburton in?

    It has to be that Marinakis did all of that, as Al Hasawi is clueless, and has no balls.

    Right now this all one big f*ckin mystery, and could still end on a sour note for Forest?

    For many and not just Forest fans, the best manager England never had. He wasn't a yes man so he got nowhere near the role as it would have ruffled too many feathers. Sadly all these years later the FA is still the same and unless you tick the boxes that they want ticked you are never going to get the job.

    This saga with Rangers and Forest about Mark Warburton is seriously getting interesting now with Dave King's possible threat...
