It's fair to say that this season could not end soon enough for some supporters - a season that promised so much and delivered so little.
We have somehow managed to snatch middle table obscurity, from an almost nailed on play off position in February and the latest City Ground surrender against Brighton emphasised that.
Once again, long suffering Forest fans see the away support celebrating on the final day of the season - with the Forest players and families trudging around the City Ground pitch after the final whistle.
Personally, I'm glad to hear that Stuart Pearce, who does not officially start as Nottingham Forest Manager until 1st July, is not resting upon his laurels.
Pearce held a meeting with all players and staff yesterday, to set out his plans - with further private meetings for the first team staff thereafter.
Whilst there has been no 'official' news from the club site - media outlets are reporting the departure of most 'out of contract' players, some have already taken to Twitter:-
Got the news 2day I will be leaving Nffc, I wonna thank every1 at the club and the fans who have been absolutely brilliant towards me, MT20
Just wanna say goodbye and thanks to every single person who welcomed me at Forest!!!
Matt Derbyshire, Simon Gillett, Jonathan Greening, Ishmail Miller and Gonzalo Jara are all out of contract and expected to leave.
Rafik Djebbour's deal seems to have been an initial loan deal rather than the 2.5 year permanent signing reported, so he may have played his last game for the club. Similarly, it would seem unlikely that Kevin Gomis's loan will be extended.
The situation regarding loanees, Lee Peltier & Danny Fox is currently unclear.
However, fellow loanee, David Vaughan has agreed personal terms so looks likely to be the first signing.
Whilst this would seem a little ruthless & harsh on some - the fact that Pearce has rolled up his sleeves and started as he means to go on is good news.
Stuart Pearce: 'Football doesn`t owe Nottingham Forest anything. We have to work for everything on a daily basis if we are to be successful.'
