    Being on an Ashley shortlist means little. He has had many shortlists of potential buyers (especially at season ticket renewal time). Zero hours buyers don't cut it.

    Neither Vieira nor Gerrard have anything to gain from going to Newcastle now. They are building reputations that Ashley can destroy. It's different from Lampard to Chelsea where he has some clear positive reasons.

    Martin O'Neill sacked by Nottingham Forest after just five months in charge
    Nottingham Forest have sacked manager Martin O'Neill after just five months in charge

    Nottingham Forest have sacked manager Martin O'Neill.

    The Northern Irishman only took the job at The City Ground five months ago but has now been dismissed, days after the departure assistant manager Roy Keane.

    O'Neill returned to the club where he won the European Cup and made 371 appearances as a player in January after they parted company with Aitor Karanka.

    He took over with the club in ninth place and four points off the play-offs but was unable to mount a promotion push as they finished eight points adrift of sixth.

    A club statement read: "Nottingham Forest can confirm that manager Martin O’Neill has left the club.

    "The club would like to thank Martin for all his efforts during his time at The City Ground and wish him well for the future."

    It is believed a number of key players turned against O'Neill and assistant boss Keane, leading to club bosses opting to make a change before the new season.

    The club are now on the lookout for their 12th manager since June 2011 as they look to earn promotion back to the Premier League for the first time since 1998/99.

    According to The Guardian , the club are aiming to minimise disruption with a quick appointment and Frenchman Sabri Lamouchi, formerly manager of Rennes and Ivory Coast, has emerged as an early front-runner.

    I thought Solskjær had gone already when I saw this bumped.

    Ha!

    My guess was that he wanted to do a Pulis/Allardyce/Redknapp and take control of transfers *cough*bung*cough* but it turns out instead the players just thought he was a clam.

    Cant blame them

    After 8 years and 12 managers I am sure this guy will be the one to take them back to the PL (wink wink)

    A little surprised he went there.

    Could have easily taken a few months R&R and jumped into another premiership job in Nov...

    Nah. Taking over from someone else's mess rarely works out.

    Chelsea was an obvious one, IMO.

    Arsenal possibly.

    West Ham probably.

    There will be others.

    Id say probably not, but you never know do you?

    Smith has done excellent work so far, and not been there long - Id like to think they would be supportive of him (like Cardiff with Warnock).

    However, once the potential for relegation dawns many clubs lose their heads...

    I'd guess that Terry would start pushing himself as a potential replacement should they have a bad start

    He may have a prem or specific prem club clause in there, his stock is pretty high off the back of being a popular manager for an unpopular chairman and he’s a big enough coup for the Chinese league to request it.

    I mean if he’s ambitious of course...
