What a performance from Forest they have deserved their survival unlike Everton.
Should be entertaining next weekend.COYP

Why? Other than for the simple fact that they've got more points in which case they deserve it more than Southampton, Leicester... I find it odd that fans of a club who have seen administration twice in the past 25 years would be encouraging their financial approach.

The season they got promoted, Forest lost 50m on a turnover of 30m.

This season they've spent 200m in transfer fees, bringing in only 5m. That's before considering anything around around free transfer signing on fees for the likes of Jesse Lingard, salary and fees for loan signings such as Keylor Navas, or their increased wage bill which now covers so many players they can't register them all.

They've stayed up - the gamble has paid off. Come the end of the season, it may be that a dreadful Wilf Zaha penalty was the difference between their survival and relegation - a relegation that would have left them horrendously exposed financially.

Bournemouth and Fulham have taken a far more commendable approach to this season.

2nd May 2010 - D-Day 1 - Survival at Hillsborough
1st June 2010 - D-Day 2 - Survival at Lloyds
7th June 2010 - CPFC2010 exchange contracts.

Yes I wanted then to stay up, I remember the great team that won the European Cup two years on the trot. Back in the day when there was hardly any foreigners in our teams, so it did feel like they were representing our country in Europe. Plus dispute being a complete nutter, Brian Clough was a tough man to dislike, a true character and what him and that Forest team achieved back then was incredible

I have already posted that I hold Steve Cooper in the highest regard and would have no qualms if he was appointed manager of our club.

Playing Forest as our last game does yield another opportunity to persue interest in Cooper. I hope it's true and I hope it happens

There has been the narrative about our Academy.Cooper has coached youth players who are now considered high quality.
As U17 coach England reached the final of the UEFA European U17 final and under him they won the FIFA U17 World Cup.

At Swansea, the club finished 6th in his first season (They finished 10th in the previous season under Graham Potter) and 4th in his second and last season.The following season they finished 15th.

He joined Nottm Forest last season after 8 games with the club second from bottom and they finished 4th and got promoted to the PL via the play-offs.
This season of course he has steered them clear of relegation.

A coach with an impressive CV, a successful PL season, and good with young players. Bring it on!
