Rumour Mill-Forest want Dyche?

Rumour Mill-Forest want Dyche?

Sky Sports are reporting that they undertsand Burnley boss Sean Dyche is in the frame for the vacant manager's position at Nottingham Forest following the departure of Alex McLeish. McLeish left the club by mutual consent after being gaffer for just 40 days at the City Ground.

Dyche was a former Forest youth team player and is thought to be highly rated after impressing at both Burnley and his previous club, Watford.

The 41-year-old only took over at Burnley at the end of October, replacing Eddie Howe at the helm. He has become a fans' favourite notching up 17 points from 13 matches whilst guiding the team up to seventh spot just four points off the play-offs.

Sky Sports are full of Dyche epithets and they say, quote:

'Dyche is regarded as one of the most innovative young managers in the country and Forest's owners see him as the ideal man to take the club forward'

Well if that's the case we better keep hold of him!! Owen Coyle is free Forest?

Nottingham Forest are set to name their new manager within 48 hours, thankfully former boss Billy Davies is the clear favourite.

A change of maageris the last thing we need. There was I thinking after the Jan window we were settled until the end of the season.

Not sure about that GC. If you like at the average tenure of a manager these days the likelihood is that we will have a new boss in a couple of years. In fact, if you ignore Sir Alex and Arsey Whinger, managers barely last eighteen months these days. Let's face it, if clubs lose a couple of games on the trot the doom-mongers start to appear whilst a little bit of success means more attractive offers and rumours like this one come in. The reality is that Dyche, in time, will either get sacked, or leave for a bigger club. And we will all just move on.

Can't argue with any of that RT , in fact the football club manager's job these days could be likened to a game of musical chairs or a merry-go-round . It's all gone absolutely silly. My gut feeling though is that Sean Dyche will stay with us for this season with a real possibility of promotion. Failing that I'm sure he'll stick around for a more concerted attempt next season , with some fine tuning of this squad together with his improved knowledge of the players leading to success hopefully. All this falls apart of course if another club come in with an offer that may double his salary or substantially increase it. What would any of us do under those circumstances ?

its a shame, but Rt is correct, apart for SAF, arsyW and the amazing dario grady, the bottom clubs in the cc or pl always sack their manager, ................ as they believe its their fault, ................its a shame because 3 team's always have to go down, hense usually 3 managers are sacked...... Personally i feel we've done well with managerial appts of the past couple 'o decades...................... APART from mr law....... that was a wee mistake, as he'd been sacked for nearly relagating SheffWed 3 month earlier and was home gardening................., had no PL experience ..............and we decided he'd fill owen's boots.!!! Owen was getting out of his depth at the time as his experience wasnt "abundant" in that league, BUT he had us playing bloody good footy. I liked " ten benson n white pumps" mr ternant, he was a scream, got us to the CC, but again is a lower league manager. I'd like Sd to get us there, give us a good season, then if a "bigger" club, thats struggling ( theres always one, its AV this season), want him, we can cry a bit and take a few mill off 'em and get the assistant trained up ........ sorry its an essay again...... i always mean to post before carrying on
