Pearce is expected to be confirmed as the new Forest manager on Thursday but will not take over at the City Ground until the end of the current season.

The former England Under-21s coach turned the job down last week for family reasons but has now had a change of heart and is expected to sign a two-year deal with his former club.

Previous boss Billy Davies was sacked by Forest owner and chairman Fawaz Al Hasawi, who approached Pearce after former Leeds boss Neil Warnock turned down the job last month.

Gary Brazil will remain in caretaker-charge of Forest, who are currently seventh in the Sky Bet Championship, two points outside the play-off places.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
