No Comment On His Future From McLeish

Alex McLeish did not have one of his better days in a dug out at St Andrews on Saturday; a rare win for the Forest boss would have gone a long way in lifting spirits.

But that was never likely to happen as Blues looked like they were up for this game right from the start and the crowd let their feelings about the man who defected to Aston Villa known to the ex-boss.

McLeish had already lost out with one battle and that was to come crawling back to the club with the intentions of signing Chris Burke on the cheap for his Forest side, but of course that move never came off.

Which made the fact that Burke put in one of his better performances and grabbed both goals as McLeish looked on all that more satisfying.

A late penalty for Forest did little to dampen the spirits of the City faithful and at the final whistle McLeish looked like he just wanted the ground to open up and swallow him.

And his record of one win in seven games left a question mark over his future, something which he did not feel like talking about after the game.

He told Sky Sports: 'I am not commenting. I only want to talk about the game. There is no meeting planned with the chairman, Fawaz Al Hasawi. He was at the training ground on Friday. That will remain private.

'There is no problem with communication but I have no wish to make any comment other than about the game.'

Mcleis will make a good manager one day, if any of the conference clubs want to sign him that is.
Devlin
He's still working his way around the Midland's clubs first, its like he has something against Middle England and he wants to bore the crap out of us all.
Foxxy
Well he's going about it in the right way, who would employ the clown now?
