    Nah, I don't think that's the case at all

    If he's sacked after what he's done I'm finished. Think back to the absolute garbage we were watching before Xmas. After sorting out the defence and making a couple of shrewd signings we look a far better team - with more to come.

    Two nil, Grabban and Yates

    My first Forest hero Peter Cormack used to play for Bristol City.

    I remember our first home game after our promotion to the First Division was against Bristol City. Peter Cormack played in that game. If my memory serves me correct, it ended in a draw.

    A very good player-he had great success at Liverpool after leaving Forest.Incidentally,Forest won that match
    against Bristol City(1-0) with a late goal from Peter Withe.

The goal set for all Forest managers, easy or not, realistic or not, is to have us top 6; anything else is failure, finishing in the the lower half of the table must be, to our esteemed overlords, embarrassment.

    It wouldn't surprise me, that's all. At what point did they learn? Karanka? O'Neill?

    By luck or by judgement,it is clear to most supporters that Forest have their best prospect at the helm for
    23 years.Let's just hope that our owners realise this and don't create unnecessary pressure by setting
    unrealistic targets too soon.

    Not just the owners but a good chunk of the fanbase too.

    Maybe that's changing because the allowances dismissed and denied the likes of Karanka and O'Neill seem to be being made for Hughton, which can only be a good thing. Hopefully the owners will follow that lead.

    They've got lots of injuries & in free fall, we're on a roll so 2-0 to Forest.

    I think it became clear a month or so into the season that our summer transfer window was poor and left us with a squad unable to compete. No one in their right mind at that point would expect a top 6 finish, even a top half finish would be a big ask.

    Hughton will be judged on next season, after he has had a summer transfer window to work with.

    Clearly the result here is not that important. I'm happy enough that we're safe now...

    Love to see (another) confident, attacking, fluid performance like QPR - which, of course, we win. Mainly because I missed it due to African WiFi!

    1-4 to the famous team - just like when Stanley ripped them a new one!!

    We're not absolutely safe so there's an incentive to finish the job. Which I think we will do. That all-important confidence is coming back. 1-2 to the Garibaldi.

    Edit: just found the link on My Forest account.
    £10 for Season Ticket holders to be able to watch the live video.

    So I apologise in advance if some disagree with my position starting from the premise that the owner has a degree of sense and objectivity while acknowledging he also has high expectations, a temper and a sometimes itchy trigger finger.

    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.

    How inflation works: we bought Cormack for a reported £15,000 and sold hime to Liverpool 2 years later for £80,000.
    I wonder how much anyone would have to pay for a player of his calibre today... >£10,000,000?

    Nice one Captain.

    I was gutted and pi55ed off big time, when Peter joined the Scousers.

    As a crude measure, the most expensive British footballer that year was David Nish at £225k. Cormack's fee was 36% of the top transfer.

    These days top British transfers such as Bale & Maguire cost £85m and £80m.

    36% of 80m is 29m.

    So today Peter Cormack would have gone for around £30m.
