What's going on?

We all know Forest are bad at PR.

But why would you preannounce the announcement date for season tickets?

The only reasons I can think of are:

  • It is bad news (price hike)

  • It is a hint about the date of the manager's appointment in the face of relentless Martin O'Neill speculation

  • It is both

And yes, I'm still hoping ...

PS: Derby announce their manager "before the end of the week". Lots of their fans reckon it's Martin as well.

From the message boards today:

O"Neill to be given the Director of Football job, giving him enough time to be with his wife.

O'Neill has a contract with Celtic as part of his compassionate leave package that means he cannot take another job till the 29th May.

Press Conference on Monday (but it's a Bank Holiday - see above)

Keith Alexander is in the frame.

Oh, and most of the people "in the know" are complaining that they have been told nothing (one even citing an ex-player, a current player and an ex-chairman who is friends with MoN as being in the dark). Although the editor of the NEP apparently knows but daren't run it.

Today's update:

Dan on LTLF, Toddi Orlygson and InsideNFFC on Vital are all now claiming it's a done deal.

All three have been right about inner goings on at the club before and all three are claiming that O'Neill has a clause in his Celtic contract preventing him from taking the job until June.

Or is it all over?
