    Default Fawaz SSN interview

    Just been on SSN and here are the notes from it for those that missed it.



    - Clarke, McKay, Zola on short list.
    - Cannot take jobs because of gardening leave or want to start in summer.
    - McGovern there to advise.
    - Zola wants to start from Summer.
    - Not that close.

    So if they want to start from the summer what do we do about the rest of the season? Write it off? Experiment with the academy players or radical new tactics? Carry on and hope for the best?

    I would be willing to wait til the summer for any of those three.

    Would make sense that people may not be interested short-term if they know we are already looking elsewhere in the summer.

    Tough situation for the end of the season though.

    Get Steve Clarke and Zola in

    Fawaz has the money ffs. If he's prepared to sack managers the way he has then he should be prepared to pay to get the right men in.

    Its almost like he is happy to go through managers once every 4/5 months on average

    McGovern should be advising this

    Fuck it just go for it, dont write the season off. If we make it into play offs great if not re-build in the summer and win the league next year!

    There's a clear out required, weve more than our fair share of dead wood and surely a new manager will benefit from having time to assess the actions required rather than enter the summer blind

    #nffc chairman Fawaz Al-Hasawi says he will happily write into new manager's contract that he won't interfere, with compensation if he does.


    As a side note.

    Clarke and Zola?

    Football doesn't work as simply as you just suggested mate.

    Agreed, although I'm sure Clarke was Zola's assistant at Wet Sham.

    Let Fawaz manage the team until the end of the season, couldn't do any worse than Brazil and might get it out of his system/make him realise how rubbish he'd be.

    Yeh, I think he was. But I don't see him fancying dropping back into that role, even less so at Forest.

    Nor should there be a joint manager scenario. Just a recipe for trouble.

    We may as well get Charlie and Rob Kelly or some other none manager coaches back to help out Brazil to the end of the season.

    They can all jog on then, as far as I'm concerned. If you're on gardening leave, you can still quit. I'm sure the LMA would be happy to help sort out anyone who wants to start a new job. Of course, if any of these fairly rich men's main priority is getting a little bit more rich than they get if they started at a time which would help my football club, then I'm glad we stand less chance of getting them.

    Managers get sacked all the time, get re-employed quickly all the time. If these guys aren;t coming, they're happier sitting collecting money for nothing than stepping in and getting up up this season. Not the attitude I want.

    This guy is pure class. He does seem to answer every issue we have.

    Fawaz to manage till the end of the season then get Moyes

    I'm inclined to agree but they are pretty good candidates. MacKay especially and I'd like to see Vincent Tan pay full wack for his attitude.

    We aren't going down and we aren't going up either. Fuck it let's let kev run the team for 8 games. It'd be fun.

    Will their 'gardening leave' suddenly vanish if we miraculously make it to the playoffs?

    Not sure if said in jest, but an interesting idea. However, given the flack he would probably get he might then up sticks and leave and we would be in free fall

    I think what is more likely is they're politely saying, 'let me see if I can get a Prem job first'.

    Better to wait for the right man that try to bundle us over the line this season.
    Let Gary Brazil get them playing without fear for the rest of the season - no pressure now. We can use the remaining games as experiments for next year.

    Then get Zola or Malky in the summer and begin building for next season's promotion push.

    It's the average amount of managers per season since fawaxe took over that is the figure to compare.

    God I'd love a bit of gardening leave for a year or two on good wages. I'm in the wrong job.

    OK so it's very much a case of whatever will be will be this season now.

    Perfect time to try out some youngsters?
