Latest Nottingham Forest News
The pressure was building on Steve Cooper before Wednesday’s game against Fulham after a run of just one win in 10 matches had raised questions over his future - not for the first time while at the City Ground.
We predicted that he might be just one game away from the sack, and after being thrashed 5-0 at Cottage Road it appeared the writing was on the wall with fans serenading the manager after the pitch and letting their backing be known, but there seemed to be a general acceptance that his race might be run at the club.
More reports emerged on Friday morning that Julen Lopetegui was being lined up to replace Cooper in the hot seat, and it could be that with the midweek matches complicating things and the short turnaround before taking on Wolves on Saturday, the Forest hierarchy are simple waiting to get these games out of the way before making the change.
No matter what the result is, it is likely to be Cooper’s last in charge and the players will be under the spotlight at Molineux after being criticised for their efforts on the pitch.
It is hard to see how they can turn this around, despite remaining four points clear of the bottom three.

Nottingham Forest Betting Odds
Having survived with only one game to go last season, Nottingham Forest will be seeking to stay up with a little more breathing space this time round.
Nottingham Forest Relegation Odds
It’s testament to the work done by Steve Cooper that his side are currently the seventh-most likely to team to be relegated, priced at 7/1, while the Reds are very short odds, 1/12 to be exact, to avoid the drop.
This is partially due to the fact that the teams currently below 15th-placed Forest don’t seem capable of competing at this level.
Nottingham Forest FA Cup Odds
Having fallen at the first hurdle of the EFL Cup, could Forest put extra emphasis on the FA Cup, when this returns for Premier League clubs in January?
The Reds did reach the quarter-finals two seasons ago, dumping out Arsenal and Leicester en route, before their Wembley dreams were shattered by Liverpool.
The Tricky Trees are two-times FA Cup winners, doing so in 1989 and 1959, although it remained the trophy that eluded Brian Clough, coming closest in 1991 when they were beaten in the final by Tottenham.
Right now, Steve Cooper’s team are 66/1 to go all the way but, who knows, a few favourable draws in early rounds could see these odds fall dramatically.

About Nottingham Forest
Nottingham Forest, one of England’s most storied football institutions, has a rich and illustrious history that spans over 150 years having been founded in 1865 and has played a significant role in the development of football in England.
However, it wasn’t until the late 19th century that Nottingham Forest gained recognition by winning the FA Cup in 1898, a remarkable achievement that laid the foundation for their future success. Throughout the early 20th century, Forest remained a competitive force in English football, competing in the top divisions and frequently challenging for honors.
Forest’s greatest period of success came in the late 1970s and early 1980s under the management of the legendary Brian Clough. During this era, the club achieved unprecedented glory, winning back-to-back European Cups in 1979 and 1980, becoming the first English club to achieve such a feat. Under Clough’s guidance, Forest also secured a Championship title and a League Cup, solidifying their reputation as one of Europe’s top clubs.
Despite experiencing a downturn in fortunes in the following decades, Nottingham Forest has always maintained a passionate and devoted fanbase. The club’s iconic City Ground stadium, nestled on the banks of the River Trent, has been a symbol of continuity and tradition in the ever-evolving world of football.
In recent years, Nottingham Forest has been striving to regain their former glory. The club has undergone various managerial changes and financial challenges and is currently led by the controversial Evangelos Marinakis, with Steve Cooper remarkably his ninth permanent manager in just six years at the club.
Marinakis, who also owns Olympiacos in Greece, has overseen a turbulent period at the club but that has coincided with their return to the Premier League after 23 years outside of the English top flight, although their return has been far from straightforward with Forest gaining a reputation for wild transfer activity, with player arrivals in the double figures in both summers in the top flight.
