Cotterill compensation agreed

Cotterill compensation agreed

According to sky sports and what they 'understand' a deal has been agreed with Forest for Steve Cotterill.

They say: 'Sky Sports sources understand Nottingham Forest have agreed a compensation package with Portsmouth for Steve Cotterill.

'Forest are looking for a new manager following the resignation of ex-England boss Steve McClaren earlier this month.

'Pompey boss Cotterill has been targeted to succeed McClaren and Sky Sports sources have learned Forest have now struck a deal with their Championship rivals to secure Cotterill's services.'

More to follow I am sure...

Well I think SC's position is untenable which ever way you look at things. Either the club won't miss him or he is acknowledging that the team he has likely can't do it.

I also note that various players have been in the media talking about unity but really on Lawrence has been forthright in his support of the manager.

Sort of sad to see him go, however I think he has taken the team as far as he can, He did an absolutely fantastic job last season helping Pompey out when they needed it most. So it's farewell goodbye and thank you Steve. Who will be in charge next? my thoughts are Alan Maclaughlin, he did a few months ago air the wish of one day becoming the Pompey Manager, whether he has the fifa qualifications I do not know

Well I feel let down. If he was going he should have gone BEFORE he assembled his own teamj. Also, why he is going does not make any sense to me, unless there are things we don't know about.

I dont think the players were inspired and the football wasnt inspiring the fans either. We should be able to compete a bit higher up this league. The new man might get enough money for a playmaker and then we should do ok - the fans might return if the football is entertaining.

Cotterill did not want to go, this is about the money, Instead of giving him time to turn the season round, & if he had failed we would have been paying him off, instead of Forrest paying us, good bussiness by Lampit & co really.

Cotterill had lost the dressing room and the majority of the fans. He appeared to be a hard, unsmiling man with little sophistication, humour or warmth. Dave Coppell has, forget the Bristol City saga, the story remains untold.

Can't believe we've got money for him - but at least it means we don't have to pay him off. I don't bear any grudges, and in many ways he was there for Pompey in our hour of need when many wouldn't have taken the job. I would clap him on his return! That said, the footy wasn't attractive and with the players on paper this season, I was hoping that mid table obscurity was a certainty? I certainly wasn't expecting us to be pushing for promotion. Thanks for the effort SC and good luck in the new job. PUP
