Let's wait and see - Al Hasawi

Fawaz Al Hasawi: Asks to be judged at end of season

The Al Hasawi family completed their takeover at the City Ground in July and quickly made the decision to dispense with manager Steve Cotterill and bring back former coach Sean O'Driscoll, who had recently agreed to take charge at Crawley, as boss.

The Kuwaiti owners changed the manager again before the turn of the year, surprisingly sacking O'Driscoll on Boxing Day following a 4-2 home win over Leeds before quickly appointing Alex McLeish.

Chairman Al Hasawi insists he has the best interests of the club at heart and has called for Forest fans to get behind McLeish and the players.

"I respect people and their opinions, but let's wait until the end of the season and see," he told the club's official website.

"Last season, Forest did not do well. They finished towards the bottom of the table. This season we are up there, we are near to the play-offs. We have made things better.

"I wish for people to be behind us and the team. If, by the end, it turns out that I have done things wrong or badly, people can say what they want. But let's wait, because there are 19 games to go and, as I said, if we can win 12 of those, we will have a good chance."

Al Hasawi added: "To be honest, I want to look for the best. We want to move forward. Maybe lots of the supporters; lots of the people in Nottingham did not like what happened in the end (with O'Driscoll).

"But I would like them to give the new manager a chance, the chance to work hard with us and achieve something."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
