Is Calderwood Set For Shock City Ground Return?

Is Calderwood Set For Shock City Ground Return?

Colin Calderwood was sacked from his post as manager of Nottingham Forest back in December 2008, following a run of results that saw the team win only 4 matches up to Christmas and had the club on a collision course straight back to League 1. Now almost 3 years on and the current manager of Hibernian, could be on his way back to the City Ground, as part of new manager Steve McClaren's backroom staff.

Within a month of being shown the door at Forest, Calderwood joined another former Reds' boss Joe Kinnear at Newcastle, as First Team Coach. He was appointed Assistant Manager with the Geordies, when Chris Hughton took charge in 2009.

Calderwood left Newcastle in October 2010, after he was appointed manager of SPL side Hibernian. He signed a 3 year contract at Easter Road and it still has over 2 years to run. Calderwood had a tough first season in the SPL and finished a disappointing campaign, 3rd from bottom of the table.

It's understood that he has been offered a role as part of McClaren's new look back room staff, but the question is whether or not it would be enough to tempt him out of the number one position at Hibs. He does have connections with Paul Barron, the man expected to be named as the new goalkeeping coach by the club, with the pair having worked together at Newcastle.

Good grief! Surely SURELY only as a defensive coach? If the calderwood negative approach to tactics come back to the city ground again - trying (and failing) to hang on to a 1-0 for 75 mins - then we've gone backwards. There are few people I'd welcome back. Paul Hart for his brilliant work with young players is perhaps the only one. Otherwise, I think we need fresh blood. We also need a backroom staff that are not on huge wages, given we are already spending almost 10% more than our income on the wage bill alone - we spend a similar proportion of our income to Manchester City but Mr Doughty - generous as he is - is no Oil Billionaire!

He won't leave Hibs for a coaching gig at a club he once managed (and was dismissed from).

Well if he is going to return to Forrest, i'll drive him down form Easter road, don't worry about chipping in for the fuel, i'd gladly pay it to get him away from Hibs, all the best for the new season guys, about time you were back up there!

I thought Calderwood was excellent at spotting talent so could be a great scout, but he struggled to set his team up and was too defensive in the main.

People think he was more negative than BD.? yeah right, at least he had the balls to win promotion when given the chance. The way I see it if whoever McClaren wants then so be it and good luck to them. Good shout on Harty tho doubt he would he ever give our club the time of day again
