Letters to the editor
I am writing to bring to your readers’ attention to the superb service being offered this season by the Forest Player website, which as you may kno with total clarity, leaving me free to sit back on a Saturday afternoon and li hear the whole thing from start to fin former Reds captain ver miss a Forest goal again! Thank you, Forest Pla would recommend to all my friends.
It seems seems everyone is talking about colour these days. First there was Cardiff City changing their strip from blue to red, and now they’ve switched off the analogue television signal my wife is on at me to upgrade our set from the old black and white that has served us so well for so many years. I wouldn’t mind, but she’s such a hypocrite – only the other day I overheard her on the phone telling a friend how much she loves ‘shades of grey’.
Anyway, I think it’s time we all stopped worrying about colour and just enjoyed our football. On a totally different note, I see the FA are trying to force players to wear t-shirts with the slogan ‘Kick It Out’ on them and Rio Ferdinand is in trouble for refusing to do so. Well in my opinion he’s right to refuse to wear the t-shirt – Rio is clearly a quality footballer and he’d much rather keep the ball in play than kick it out. What kind of message are those t-shirts sending out to youngsters? We shouldn’t be encouraging the next generation to hoof the ball into the stands at every opportunity.
PS. What about this race row, eh? It’s awful. After all his years in broadcasting, John McCririck deserves better!
Like all impartial observers I said I would give the new manager a chance to recreate the glories of the past. Well he’s had three months in the job and Forest haven’t been promoted yet, so I think it’s time the club swallowed it’s pride and asked a certain former Forest boss to come home and complete the job he wasn’t allowed to finish because of rash decision-making by the club board.
They sacked him for no good reason and against the will of the supporters, and then to make matters worse they replaced him with a complete clown. I think we all know which manager I’m talking about, but if I really do need to spell it out, the man to return Forest to glory, the people’s choice is, of course, Steve Cotterill.
PS. As for the people who fired him, Brian Clough once said that if a chairman sacks a manager, he should resign himself. I hope Omar Al-Hasawi takes note and does the honourable thing.
