    Perhaps the most sensible - if not necessarily most appealing option - to many supporters at this stage is Burton Albion's former Forest striker Nigel Clough, the son of legendary boss Brian.

    Nigel Pearson, the Nottingham-born former Leicester City manager, is also being linked, and Billy Davies is available again.

    Of course, Jose Mourinho is also free - but a more realistic appointment, with a connection to the ex-Chelsea boss, might be Middlesbrough's Aitor Karanka.

    The Spaniard, who worked with Mourinho at Real Madrid, is considering his future at Boro and there are strong rumours that Al Hasawi favours a foreign boss, with ex-Chelsea defender Dan Petrescu having been linked when the role has previously been available.

    A retired Nottinghamshire Police Chief Inspector has said it is important that the force maintains "bobbies on the beat."

    Barry Harper, who served in the force for 30 years, said: "For a while now, Nottinghamshire Police, certainly in my time, have been very top heavy." 

    "I think it's the best way to make reductions by taking top ranks out and maintaining the police officers doing the work on the ground."

    "I don't think anyone questions his desire," Wright said.

    "He has put an awful lot of money into the club, but after four years of constantly changing things around and the decreasing results on the pitch and worsening situation in terms of finances, I don't think he has given us anything to believe in terms of having confidence and decision-making."

    "I forced through those changes so we don't have those problems - I'm not putting that at risk."

    You been enjoying speculating about the next permanent Forest manager on the BBC Radio Nottingham Facebook page.
