Billy will get you promoted. Buy lots of scottish (and/or) ex-Preston players. You will be bottom after 10 games and he will engineer his own dismissal pocketing a tidy compensation figure in the process. Probably.
In all honesty he is a very effective CCC manager and has consistently taken underachieving sides and turned them into top 6 teams. It will be interesting to see what players you sign in the next couple of weeks. It was this transfer window that things started to go wrong when Billy was in charge of the best club in the midlands - we went from being 8 points clear at the top of the table to missing out on automatic promotion.
Guess it depends on the football we play for the remainder of the season, looking at how things were when he was managing derby in the CCC, we are playing different classes of football. However, only time will tell

I'm also a ST holder, sit in U1 Upper Brigeford. Where do you sit??
Good game today though, totally ripped Reading apart in the first half. Dipped in the seconed but Lee Camp was inspirational with his two saves then the penalty save
I also went to West Brom, that game was quite possibly the best football I have seen from Forest... Majewski's goal was majic And the build up to Cohen's goal was pure class
Upper Trent, T5. I have a stunning view from my seat. Lower Bridgford yesterday was rubbish - I told my bro if he's going to come to QPR he'd better get his arse in gear and grab a ticket near to mine instead. I've used up all my alternatives now so we'll just have to try and find two free seats in the UT.
Not a bad performance yesterday, anyway. I don't buy Davies' spiel that it was the best we'd played first-half, I think that honour belongs to a magical fifteen minute spell against West Brom, or maybe the Cardiff away/Newcastle home games. We were good but we weren't that good. Second half was shaky and nervy, but job done.
Unbeaten going into Derby would be lovely. Having only been to three away games, I'm not going to Derby . . .
. . . unless it's in the home end .
Winger Arron Davies is one of four players being released by Nottingham Forest.
The 25 year old Welsh international, who joined Forest from Yeovil at the same time as Chris Cohen in 2007, has only recently returned to The City Ground from a loan spell with League One side Brighton.
The other players to leave the club by mutual consent are full back Joe Heath, winger James Reid and central defender Aaron Mitchell.
Davies made 14 starts and 24 substitute appearances since joining Forest, scoring one goal.
Heath made 12 appearances for the club before joining Lincoln City on loan earlier this season.
Reid, an England Under 18 international, made his debut for Forest in one appearance as a substitute last season and has spent the first half of this season on loan at Rushden & Diamonds.
Mitchell, who figured in the Forest squad during pre-season games, has more recently been on loan with Blue Square North side Ilkeston Town.
A club statement from Forest said: "We would like to wish all four players every success in their future careers."
Rejected. We were never going to sell such a versatile player, really, unless it was silly money. Though even then you have to wonder why Newcastle are pursuing second choice utility men. Not that I don't rate Perch - he is a good footballer. Just not good enough to be deserving of seven figure bids.
