The signing of Zohore should have got this bloke the sack

14 goals in the championship for Cardiff. 3 more than Austin  ;D

Wasn’t at Forest long enough. Watford fans generally liked him but his role was effectively a glorified head domestic scout. When you look back at his record, they didn’t sign many of his suggestions as most players came from their Grenada/Udinese network.

Forest were within days of sacking him and couldn't believe their luck when we came in for him.

Did a single one of those players sign for a newly promoted club that was the favourite for relegation? That alone kills the list, which isn't particularly big when you consider it takes in not one summer but several transfer windows.

Has that been printed somewhere or speculation from forest fans?

Had over 2 weeks since the Leeds debacle to get players incoming.

If Allardyce thought everything was rosy post Liverpool, he had a nasty sharp sharp shock v Leeds and Arsenal days later reinforced it.

To not have players signed in time for Molineux, is shocking in my view.
