Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies was delighted with his players’ efforts this season – and he is adamant the club has a bright future.The Scot began his second spell in charge of The Reds in February and led his men on a charge for an npower Championship playoff place.
And, although his side were cruelly denied on the final day, he told Forest Player that he can look back on the last few months with a great deal of pride.
He said: “We put in a lot of good performances home and away. Huddersfield at home was a good day and Hull City away was an excellent victory.
“Of course there were disappointments – we should have beaten Blackpool and Barnsley at home. You can pick out highs and lows from over the course of the season. It was a very exciting and difficult time to come back in but there was a great response from fans and the people at the football club. Now we’re all moving together and looking forward to the challenge ahead.
“I would like to thank Fawaz and the board. They have been outstanding since we arrived. Fawaz and I will sit down and discuss the vision, budgets and what is necessary to move forward. We’ll put a plan in place regarding new signings, targets and restructuring the football club.”
And Davies clarified that those processes will take place with one goal in mind.
He said: “The intention, the desire and the ambition of the Al Hasawi family is to take this club to the Premier League - that’s exactly what we’ll try to do as quickly as possible.
“It’s what this club, these fans and our owners deserve.”
