    I got a bit confused last weekend with a full football league programme on Friday which threw out the next few days.

    However I'm back to normal now with a proper Saturday. I felt rather confident earlier in the week straight after our good win against QPR, but as the days have passed familiar doubts have surfaced.

    Brizzle started the season so well, surely they can't have gone so completely off the boil; there must be some of that earlier ability lurking around Ashton Gate. Let's hope it doesn't surface today and we do really show our new found goal-scoring ability.

    I think they've had a few injuries to key players.

    It wouldn't surprise me, that's all. At what point did they learn? Karanka? O'Neill?
    I think the length of the contract was telling.

    Obviously I am guessing here but he took over a shit load of shit. OK on paper it looked fairly decent but all the ones that looked decent on paper weren't decent when they crossed the line on to the pitch..

    The contract I think I read was a 2 year contract. So that tells it's own story. That's this season to get to safety and build for a Push on the play offs next season. If that doesn't materialise then you can just let the contract run down naturally. If it does materialise and we get promoted or make the play offs then the contract gets renewed.

    That's where I think the Owners are coming from but just guesswork obviously.

    I doubt it dude, I honestly think that even if we had been relegated Hoots would have been here next season - unless he had lost the faith of the squad - which with his calm , firm approach coupled with his pedigree would be very doubtful...
    he's our man for at least the next season or 2 come what may.

    Framework is great local charity, with much of its work for the homeless and many other vulnerable people going unrecognised, and so this is a brilliant gesture by the club and the owner.

    But given the team Hughton inherited, the position they were in and the playing style and personnel he had to change, I don't think for an instant that Hughton would have come out of what was effectively semi-retirement on the basis of "and you have to have us in top 6 by the end of the season".

    You can hear in the interviews he did when he started (e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOvxTPF8nIw) that he was under no illusion as to how deep the problems ran and he made it really clear that he'd need time to fix them. Lets face it CH is not the kind of guy who's gonna tell an owner what they want to hear just to get a job. He's measured, thoughful, pragmatic and honest and I'd like to think the owner might well have appreciated that.

    He's not deviated from that line and therefore I assume AM sanctioned this approach.

    So given that Hughton has then gradually delivered a transformed team, with a different style and, I'd like to think, the bedrock for a totally different Forest next season, I'd think AM would be pretty happy with what he's seen.

    Of course I'm not a potentially quixotic Greek billionaire, so I could be wrong about all this but I would imagine that AK is wondering not whether to keep Hoots but actually just how much does (and indeed can) he back him in the transfer market.
    If EM was unsure, Hughton would have gone months ago.

    I also think the reputation of going through managers he has is unfair, and a hangover from Fawaz who genuinely did sack managers without thought.

    442?

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

    That's the team I'd pick if I were Hoots. Don't like Ameobi wide right personally, feel he slows play down.

    Nice fluid team with inside forwards and overlapping full backs.

    If only they sold boxes

    They can sort you out a nice boiler though, without any embarrassing West Brom-style mascots.
