    Pulis appears to be the early favourite to replace him. As ever the fans are divided on this possible appointment.

    The way Derby treated Brian Clough he should have known better than go there to begin with. He was offered the Forest job in January but declined to accept it. I am both a Forest fan and a Nigel Clough fan.
