There is certainly a downbeat atmosphere at Nottingham Forest at the moment, with Aitor Karanka departing the club on Friday morning.
It was well publicised that Karanka was facing pressure from the board to walk away, and he ultimately has done exactly that.
The timing of this development couldn’t have come at a worse time with Nottingham Forest preparing for a game against Reading this weekend at the Madejski Stadium.
This news has been met with a furious response from the majority of the City Ground faithful, many of whom thought that Karanka was the man to take the Reds back into the top flight.
Slavisa Jokanovic has emerged as the early favourite to take charge of the Reds, according to Sky Sports, as they look to challenge for promotion this season.
But who do Nottingham Forest fans want to see replace Karanka?

I hear Aitor Karanka is free, he has done a decent job for clubs

Martin O’Neills name was being bandied around on New Year’s Day, could be something in it? But chances are it’s the old Olympiakos gaffer???? #nffc

It doesn't matter who we get, they'll sack him after a year anyway.
