Just over 24 hours after the Al-Hasawi family bought Nottingham Forest, manager Steve Cotterill has lost his job.
Although his side only just avoided relegation last year, Cotterill can't be held solely responsible for the club's 19th placed finish.
Cotterill had been brought in after changes made by his short lived predecessor Steve McLaren had already seen the club in free fall.
Nobody at Nottingham Forest is making them self available for interview today however this statement was issued.
Getting rid of Cotterill in such quick fashion does appear ruthless, but also suggests that the Al-Hasawi family will not be content with their new club 'surviving' in the Championship, and that perhaps they intend to invest heavily in the team with an eye for promotion.
If that is the case, they would most likely want a manager with a proven record of attracting and handling big name players.
Today's actions have answered the question hanging over Steve Cotterill's future, but in doing so raised many more.
Hopefully some of those will be answered on Saturday when the Al-Hasawi family have said they will make themselves available at a press conference.
