Steve leaves

July 12, 2012

As Through The Seasons Before Us points out, Forest’s new owners aren’t ones to mess about, dismissing manager Steve Cotterill two days into their reign.

‘A nice man, given a tough job – one he was barely capable of delivering,’ is the blog’s damning-with-praise verdict on the hapless Steve.

Seat Pitch expect the imminent announcement of a replacement, possibly one of the various managers linked to the job in recent weeks.

Interestingly, a fan site of Cotterill’s former club, Clarets Mad, describes the sacking as inevitable, which perhaps says something about how he was regarded there.

Let the speculation about the new boss begin (but hopefully not go on for too long!).
