The 2015-16 English League Championship season is in the books. It was another disappointing year for the Nottingham Forest, as they finished up in 16th place with a 13-16-17 record (55 points). Forest came into the season with the hopes of pushing for a promotion, but it wasn’t meant to be.
It continued their decline from their surprising 8th place finish (67 points) during the 2012-13 season, which followed a 19th place finish (50 points) in 2011-12.
Forest got off to a relatively slow start to the season, but looked like they may have turned the corner during a solid stretch of play from early November into the first few days of February. During this 15-game stretch, Forest racked up 7 wins, 7 draws and just 1 defeat.
After what ended up being their best stretch of the season, things went down hill in a hurry. Forest lost 9 of their next 11 matches to put to rest any hope of finishing in the Top 10 of the standings. On the bright side, Forest was able to finish the year on a bit of a positive note, going unbeaten in their final five games.
The focus now turns to the 2016-17 season, where Nottingham will try to get things turned around. The big question for Forest, is who will be the boss for the upcoming campaign. Interim manager Paul Williams has left the club. Williams took over for the final 10 games after manager Dougie Freeman was fired in March.
