The Forest fans are hit with the news that ex-Bolton boss Dougie Freedman is now their manager

Tom has a bad feeling:

Trust me Sedgred, it can get a LOT more disappointing!

Many Bolton fans shared Stockers point of view when Dougie was installed as Bolton manager. They soon woke up:
Stockers wrote: Think he'll do a good job. Young manager, got Palace playing very well. Should do well.
Francis Benali is already looking ahead:

There's one stato on every forum:
gedlingred wrote: Pearce 38% win rate. Freedman 34% win rate. It is a joke right?
Most Forest fans are too stunned to type many words:
Jesus H Christ
Ha ha ha, what a f***ing joke
Mr Sourface from Bolton fuck off
Has to be a joke
That cretin? Really?
WE ARE RELEGATED
We're the new blackpool
James is extra stunned:
James_NFFC wrote: Wow. The term 'disillusioned' just doesn’t seem strong enough to explain how I feel right now.
I think Ravi has his tongue firmly in his cheek. Or he's a total bell-end.
Ravi wrote: At least we're not a laughing stock anymore
Are Fawaz and Gartside related?
Red Dawn wrote: Sacked by taking Bolton into the relegation places yet good enough for us? Another calamity appointment by Fawaz
I hope for your sake Tom that it doesn't last more than two years like it did for us.

Erik hits the nail on the head:
Erik wrote: FREEDMAN IS UTTER SHITE
No, shite and yes.
Pearce_03 wrote: Can anyone see any positives to this? What’s his playing style like? Was dire at Bolton wasn't he?
Liaminho has clearly been keeping tabs on Dougie
Liaminho wrote: He's got a fine record of getting good teams playing shit
He won't care Alvar:
Alvar Hanso wrote: Hopefully there'll be a YouTube video of him walking out for the first time being greeted by utter bemusement and confused looks.
Brian sees the future:
Brian Fantana wrote: His record is almost identical to Pearce’s apart from Freedman actually has taken a club into the relegation zone. Just wow. We really are going back to League 1 aren't we.
Stevie is already feeling the Dougie effect:

Bridgford_71 sees the irony of Freedman's appointment:
Bridgford_71 wrote: Took a Bolton side full of Prem quality down to the bottom. They are only just recovering.
Also publicly slagged us off last season for our spending saying he hopes FFP take action.
Well they did Dougie, and you are inheriting it.
Matt asks God for help:
Matt1982 wrote: Cannot believe this, Freedman? You've gotta be kidding, dull as ditchwater. Can only see it getting worse. We sacked Pearce (still digesting the unbelievable news) for Dougie Freedman. Heaven help us.
Dougie turns one Forest fan to drink:
Forest Fan wrote: Somebody tell me this is just a very bad dream. Sorry Dougie, just can't see this working out somehow but feel free to prove me wrong. Wine time!
Where’s have my t*ts gone?
Brian Teaser wrote: People are generally shocked. Bolton fans are laughing their t*ts off.
Just before he was sacked at Bolton the fans were organising a protest.
Barhead sees more of the Dougie effect:
Barhead wrote: I've made the point several times that the next man wouldn't get as long as Pearce before the fans turned against him...but f**king hell I reckon Freedman got about 30 seconds before the abuse started!
Bill takes drastic action:
Bill Foster wrote: Never done it before but can you get a refund on an away ticket? No way am i driving to Brighton to watch that tw*t.....awful, awful appointment.
Matty has given up:
Matty's Tum wrote: Is there any point caring anymore?? Pathetic appointment! Christ the Bolton fans did firework celebrations when he was sacked earlier in the season, had them playing the worst football imaginable FFS, had them in the bottom 3, it can’t get any worse than this TBH.
Mase is a bit more positive:
Mase wrote: This will only work if he brings Sir Alex Ferguson as his no.2; Pep Guardiola as coach;
Lev Yashin as Goalie coach and Dr Hilary Jones as Physio
