40 days go by in the blink of an eye
It should come as n surprise to anybody that, after 40 long days in charge, Alex McLeish has been sacked (by mutual consent of course) as manager of Nottingham Forest.
Pallid performances, boardroom-level interference, general friction and a farcically botched deadline day eye test have put paid to Eck’s brief tenure and Forest’s meddling Kuwaiti owners are now looking for their fifth manager in 20 months.
He was never going to be a popular appointment such is his reputation for stodgy football, but a string of decent results/performances or a concerted promotion push would’ve changed that in a heartbeat. Football fans are fickle like that.
