Don’t Be A Silly Billy Mr Davies

Sorry to burst your bubble sports fans, Billy Davies would be an idiot to make a return to Nottingham Forest.

Davies joined as Forest manager in January 2009, but despite two top-six finishes, his dismissal came as something as a shock.

His relationship with the board at the club had often seemed strained. The club’s transfer acquisitions committee led to Davies expressing his frustration at the lack of signings.

When transfers were able to dribble in, the Scot spent £4 million on new players during his first season in charge and lead the club in an 18-game unbeaten league run that took them into the 2009/10 playoffs, where they were beaten 6-4 on aggregate by eventually promoted Blackpool.

Davies was eventually replaced by ‘Wolly with the Brolly,’ Dutch supremo and England managerial reject – Shhhhhteve McClaren.

Davies told BBC Late Kick Off last night: “I’d be delighted to go back. I have great feelings for the club.”

Ex-Forest Boss Davies

Obviously every Forest fan sat at the City Ground on a Saturday would love to see Billy Davies make a return. But would it solve all the problems at the club?

Chairman Nigel Doughty left the club in October, leaving Forest with no real substantial finances to buy the players they require. Put simply they must sell before they buy.

As it stands at the moment, Forest are third from bottom in the Championship and have lost nine of their last 11 games.

With them sitting third from bottom and four points adrift of safety Forest fans can only fear the worst.

Forest have been out of the top flight since 1999 and it might be argued that, 13 years and nine managers on, they are a club in free-fall.

It seems the job at Nottingham Forest is one of a poison chalice. The job no-one wants. Unless you’re a ‘Silly Billy.’
