Billy Davies is back at Pride Park on Saturday, but Derby FanZoner Ollie Wright won't be waving any flags...Back to story
How can you get rid of a manager only 12 games into a season? He didn't turn from a good manager to a bad manager in that short space of time, you wasn't moaning and groaning when you got promotion under him was you. I think you are all jealous, and even if you may be right in some of the comments you've made Ollie, I think Davies has learned a few lessons in his time out of football before coming to us, because let me tell you something, this man has brought wonders to the club I have never seen our club this happy, ever. I'm 24. If he's that bad then why are we doing so good? So the answer to the question 'is Billy Davies really that bad'? Is NO. How can he be? Look at us, look at the excellent signing he has made, look at the way we demolish teams, look at the way we love eachother, look at the way we sit proudly in the table. It's great and you need to concentrate on your own clubs situation and not worry about your former managers success down the A52. To me, if you are worrying and talking so much about him then that can only go down as sincere jealousy, so get down from you high horse and concentrate on why your club and manager is having a poor season and talk about that a little bit more and leave us to do what we are doing best. There is no nastiness in this, my tone of voice is completely calm in the matter! Why else wouldn't it be? Thank You.

This writer should really be concentrating on the abject current failings of his own side & current manager - not harking back & looking for other people to blame for their current plight. At least we had the good sense to appoint a manager who has worked wonders in this division, rather than a ex-Forest player who would have got a job at a league club years ago if'd he'd been any good. Also he has failed to mention that Savage did nothing but harass & harangue the referee for the whole game at the City Ground in August - not to mention his 'childish' antics before the game even started, in trying to provoke & wind up Forest fans. As for Tyson, daft though it was, what goes around, comes around (Savage & his scarf). By the way - it's Nottingham Forest - even you should know that. Good luck tomorrow - you will need it.

Billy is undoubtedly good at getting so far in the Championship and I suppose we should thank him for getting us up...but he's ruined any respect I had for hom by being idiotic. You can't win at Wembley, moan we aren't ready, say you might not stay...THEN go on a long holiday before making any (awful) signings. His apparent comments regarding daydreaming it was Preston lifting the cup are appauling buth the biggest joke was that, once he took over at Forest, he moaned Derby had bought their way to the Prem...gobsmackibg considering it was him that did it AND it's exactly what he's doing now. Such a shame he has no dignity - he badmouthed Preston, Hw badmouthed Derby and if he doesn't get 200% his way at Forest he'll badmouth them too. Maybe he's learned his lesson but there are 'worrying' signs history is repeating.

Ollie There is no such club as Notts Forest nor is there a Derby City???. There is however a reversal of fortune in our city and Nottingham Forest under Billy Davies are doing just fine I have listen to a few Derby fans prior to the season starting telling me all sorts of negative stuff about Robert Earnshaw and our manager. Its the results that count and both have done extremely well at the City Ground. My conclusion is there was something not quite right at Derby. Enjoy the game this weekend. Regards

I am a Nottingham Forest fan, and I hate to admit it, but Forest aren't good enough to stay in the Premier League, if they go up next season. When Davies was appointed manager, all I was thinking about was whether he could do better with us than with Derby. Yes he's right saying we're not ready to go up, but he's the manager so he should sort things out. He's a great guy, but I have never but all my faith in him incase we have a terrible time in the Premier League, just like Derby. If he takes us up, he better keep us up. We're a good team, and we've been out the top flight for too long!

This shouts out one word...jealousy. You had your time in the spotlight, and blew it!! Billy Davies should have been given time with his project and was ultimately punished for his success...guess its time for Forest to benefit from that mistake. Always had a soft spot for Forest after them beating Malmo. Goteborg!!!!!!
