If you were to casually come across the official site of Nottingham Forest Football Club, as a novice to the beautiful game, you'd be forgiven for not knowing that it's a club in crisis.
Looking at the Home Page gives no indication that we sit rooted to the bottom of the Championship, six points adrift of safety and in the midst of yet another managerial upheavel. The wheels of the Forest propaganda machine have been well oiled and are running at full pelt, with news that four of the youngsters have been offered new contracts, Moloney's been recalled from his loan spell and Arsene Wenger thinks we're grrrrrrreat.
It seems that our Chairman and Chief Executive, believe that silence is golden and are very much of the opinion that it's a case of 'least said, soonest mended' as far as the supporters are concerned. It doesn't appear to matter that the fans of this once great club are frantically searching for news of what the hell is going on, or that they once again fear for it's very future. Doughty and Arthur have so far failed to utter a single word to the fans about the speculation in the press and on the internet about Calderwood.
You'd at least think as a small measure of respect to the manager himself, that they would give some clarification. But we've so far heard nothing from either Doughty or Arthur. There's been no confirmation and certainly no denial, that a new manager is on the horizon.
The immediate future for NFFC looks uncertain and with the loan window a matter of hours away from closing, it looks very bleak indeed. The team is in dire need of fresh faces, but news on that front is quiet as well. It looks a safe bet to say that we won't get anyone in and that can only mean further trouble for the team and fans ahead. No news is not good news, we do have a right to be informed, or at least given an indication as to what is going on. You either back him, or sack him. Doesn't seem too difficult to me. The silence eminating from the club speaks volumes about those in charge, they clearly have no regard for the fans, when we've stood by the club. We've stood by it throughout Doughty's time at the club and we'll stand by it long after he's gone. When Doughty and Arthur do decide to end their silence, they had better choose their words carefully. We've heard the excuses for failure before and we can do without them again.
