Nottingham Forest Supporters Trust has released a statement urging Forest Chairman, Fawaz Al Hasawi, to continue talks with multi-millionaire businessman, John Moores, to buy the club.
It is after Nottingham Forest announced the proposed takeover had fallen through, after negotiations had broken down.
Our club needs to draw a line under the poor performances and leadership on and off the pitch and the takeover gave us that chance.
So we urge Fawaz and JJM to get back round the table and find a way of concluding the deal.
The trust has asked Fawaz to give the following assurances:
- Can you assure us that you remain financially committed to the football club?
- Can you assure us that we will not be selling the players we need to keep us in the championship and that we will be active in the transfer market?
- Can you make it clear who is running the football club on a day to day basis?
In the interests of our great club, please open up.

Justin Edinburgh says he's ‘delighted and honoured’ to be Northampton Town's new manager.Read the full story ›
Northampton Town have appointed former Gillingham boss Justin Edinburgh as their new manager.
The 47-year-old takes over from Rob Page who was sacked earlier this week.
Edinburgh spent the majority of his playing career at Tottenham Hotspur, and has previously managed the likes of Rushden and Diamonds and Newport County.
He was recently dismissed by Gillingham with the club in 17th place in League One at the time.
He's agreed a two-and-a-half-year contract at Sixfields.
We spoke with a lot of managers this week and had a lot of applications, but Justin’s teams have always impressed me with the energy that they play even back to his Rushden days.
I have also spoken to a lot of people in the game and had very positive feedback. He knows how to get results especially when going into clubs.
We have talked a lot today about the squad and he is excited about starting to work with them on Monday. He thinks we have good players, that he knows well, and is confident of winning football matches with this group.
We have also talked about his time at Gillingham and why that ended, and it certainly feels like he has learnt a tremendous amount from that experience which will hopefully be to the benefit of Northampton Town Football Club.
