    If he goes it would increase the bizarreness of the situation.with Chris Martin.

    He could be coming back from a promoted team, to a new contract, to play for a manager that is no longer here in a situation where the new manager may not want him.

    It is very interesting that Gary Rowett is available, a friend and neighbour of Mel's and desperate for the job.

    Maybe Martin will 'do a Thorne' and pick up an injury in the last game of this season that keeps him out all next season. It would save a lot of confusion.

    Like most things in Spring, old fusty things need moving out and doors opened to get a fresh breeze blowing through. Fingers crossed

    Come on Mel you know you want to Kiss Hug

    I hope Mel is spending the rest of today in his shed sharpening that axe.

    It's not a problem sacking another mananger (apart from the compo) if it's patently obvious that the current incumbent is not up to the job.

    Watford had 4 managers during their promotion season and Chelsea regulary change mangers and are still hoovering up trophys

    I'd like Rowett as he knows the club and played in a team with leaders and characters when he was here. Exactly what we need now.

    I also hope Mel dispenses with Sam Rush as the football side of the business has gone backwards since he's been here.

    COYR!

    DT reporting the Telegraph article now - pointedly, the DT haven't downplayed it.

    Radio Derby asked him about his future.

    Something is happening.

    My GTS (guess the sacking) timeline is gone tonight, press conference to introduce Rowett tomorrow. I reckon that Norwich sniffing around GR has forced Mel to move a week or so earlier than planned.

    It's all in the timing, we can argue if Pearson was the wrong man, but you can't argue (sensibly) that the new manager should have been appointed instead of Wassall and had that end period of the season to evaluate his team and build in the summer.

    Same situation now, feck the ginger twonk off now, install the new man, and I wouldn't be too disappointed with Rowett, and allow him to review this team and make appropriate early changes.

    Indeed, the summer is vital. We really need to trade sensibly and be ahead of the game.

    IMO, it is imperative that the new manager gets the remaining games to thoroughly assess the squad before the summer clear out/rebuild.

    Spot on, Purps. Appointing Wassall was a stupid move. He was nowhere near ready for the job, and showed it by picking Thorne in that meaningless last game.

    the Telegraph article mentions that Morris spoke to other members of the board!!

    Thought he was the owner and only Rush had any other shares so who are these members (plural)

    McSnake never takes any blame himself. It's either lack of character in the dressing room  Character or
    fitness. Squad can't cope

    I don't think he will fire him....yet.
    To be fair I wouldn't want to be Mel...he's boxed himself into a corner with his prior moves after he replaced this manager the first time which was about five minutes ago.
    Stick or twist ...plenty of clubs well below us who have done an awful lot of twisting in order to find a winning hand.
    Honestly don't know what to bloody think..but bottom line the playing staff is not good enough and I don't know how or who resolves that issue.
    I think bottom line I want us to pluck some obscure overseas manager who does a Southampton and not a Forest.
    Fu** knows what the answer is ...what a mess.

    The one thing that he shpuldn't do is sack McLaren on the back of a defeat to F*rest. If he's going, do it now, if you think he's good enough he must still be good enough on Saturday night.

    Do not give them the satisfaction of getting him sacked.
