Nigel Clough: O'Driscoll sacking harsh

O'Driscoll, who was appointed manager of the Rams' npower Championship rivals Bristol City this week, was surprisingly sacked by Forest on Boxing Day following a 4-2 home win over Leeds which left the Reds a point shy of the play-off places.

The ex-Forest coach had only been in charge since July after being brought back to the City Ground by the Al Hasawi family following their takeover of the club.

Ahead of the east midlands derby at Pride Park on Saturday, Clough said: "I sat with Sean O'Driscoll at Birmingham on Tuesday night. He said he was disappointed about what happened at Forest.

"I don't really like to comment on other clubs, but from a personal point of view what happened to Sean was harsh. But he's got another chance now at Bristol City and that's great for him."

Former Forest striker Clough added: "Unfortunately at many clubs there seems to be this instant demand for success, but football doesn't work out like that."

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.
