    Default Brazil's Playoff Failure

    Say what you will about what may have happened under Billy Davies, but what has happened under Brazil is playoff failure. Any fan who thinks that failure under Brazil was the best option is deluded.

    Oh look! Another Billy davies thread.



    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    I'd rather finish 10th than get another 5-0 battering by fucking Derby!

    Oh fuck off blaming Gary Brazil. The squad isn't good enough. End of.

    Mourinho couldn't have done better.

    If you inherit a sinking ship, there's little you can do. The previous captain would have ripped open a few new holes in the hull because the metal gave him a funny look in 2008.

    The reason for sacking Davies was not result driven and if anyone thought Brazil would get better results are deluded and using their rightful hatred to cloud their judgement. Brazil was a poor choice if you wanted to get playoffs. Brazil is crap I don't get why people are upset for calling him that he is shit.

    There's been no point during the season where I've thought "yeah, Forest will go up this season" - not one.

    Billy failed. He was given an absolute war chest to strengthen what was already a team close to the playoffs and managed a meteoric rise of one place give or take. Tactically naive and so, so often conceded leads against weaker teams, often at home. Those sorts of sides don't go up.

    Only Redknapp this season has failed to deliver to the extent Davies did. I'm thankful he's gone and we've got someone in who can restore some pride and honesty, regardless of what happens next season.

    Someone with a managerial record like his not should have been put in temporary charge.

    I thought as the season really ended weeks ago, most of the meltdown had already happened. Do we have to go through it all again now?

    This.

    We haven't looked convincing promotion candidates all season, bar the winning streak at the very beginning which obviously was the real blip of the season.

    Anyone blaming the injuries or Brazil for us failing to go up is not seeing the wood for the trees.

    Probably should have done better with a piss easy run in, can't help but think Davies would have had us top 6, but we'll never know.

    I agree. But, the ship was doomed either way - the decision was made with more than this season in mind. Billy had filled the club too thoroughly with his men; once they were all uprooted there was no way we would produce on the pitch with such chaos going on off it.

    Brazil's legacy should be in giving Osborn, McGloughlin and Evtimov their debuts, not for failing to clear up the destruction that Billy Davies left in his wake.

    It's simple.

    Actual reality and result of Billy's sacking = failure

    Anyone arguing that trying the alternative would have been wrong is flat out mental. You can't get more of a failure than failing!

    Apparently his punishment is to be banished to the Academy next season.

    It only takes a second to score a goal.

    I hope we comeback much stronger next season I really do because as I've said numerous times before, I go to watch a football match. You know that game where 2 sets of people kick a ball about and try to get it into a net propped up by 3 white posts?

    There's far too much emphasis on press conferences, transfer dealings and actions on the touchline. Rather than what is the most entertaining sport on offer in this world. To the point where people are compromising that for a pleasant read on the back page of the paper. I find this so depressing.
    this is from the gameday thread. this is true as fuck ^^^^^^

    I'm not going to get into the whole Billy Davies thing, and you all know how little I rate Gary Brazil, but the big thing for me is leaving out Abdoun and Djebbour. Fawaz spent a large sum of money on those players, and to just leave them out of the team could well be the reason we failed eventually.

    Stop saying hindsight if you said to anyone we are going to replace Davies with Brazil because we think he will get better results I would of told you that's bonkers. People are getting their rightful hatred for Davies mixed up with thinking Brazil is a better manager.

    Looking forward to hearing his post match interview.
    Have to say I'm feeling a little angry with the likes of Paul Taylor ATM. Going on twitter over the last couple of weeks and gloating how refreshing it is to feel the positivity at the club and get permission to interview various Forest players since the departure of the old regime.
    Yeh Paul it's really refreshing. Pillock.
