After the departure of Alex McLeish by mutual consent after less than ten games in charge, Nottingham Forest's owners needed to bring in a manager who could immediately settle in and get results from the squad.
In this sense, the appointment of Billy Davies is perhaps the best solution they could have hoped for, as Davies begins his second spell in charge having been sacked in June 2011.
Davies' sacking was met with contempt by many Forest fans, with the Scot having led the club to consecutive play-offs since taking over in 2009. And with the fans crying out for Billy after McLeish's departure, his reappointment will certainly be a popular choice amongst fans.
Davies told the club's official website;
"It is a privilege and an honour to be back in charge of the Reds,"
"As my new friend Fawaz says I have unfinished business here at Forest and am relishing this great opportunity to return Forest to its former glory.
"My tenure at the City Ground was cut short last time and I can't wait to get my boots back on and training the lads. We have a great squad and I know I can get the best from them. Coming home to the Reds is a dream come true."
