Stan Collymore has unveiled a Twitter plan to rescue Aston Villa

By Harvey Byrne

Stan Collymore has revealed on Twitter that he is “worried about the direction” in which Nottingham Forest are heading in.

The Midlands side are currently sat in 18th place in the Championship table and Collymore picked out owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi as one of the main problems due to being a non-football person.

Forest are famed for winning the European Cup twice in their history, but after 17 years out of England’s top flight it looks like they’re heading back in the direction of League One rather than the Premier League.

The club won promotion back to the Championship in 2008, but Collymore has posted on his personal Twitter account that he’s scared about the direction the club are going.

While the former TalkSport host also sent his support to the Forest chairman, hoping the club and supporters would “find commong ground.”

Outspoken football pundit Collymore was part of a more successful Forest side between 1993 and 1995 with the club winning promotion back to the Premier League from the old Division One.

He still holds an affinity to his former club and regularly Tweets about them.

The Midlands club will face a tough battle against Birmingham in the league next, who are placed in sixth and competing for a play off spot.
