Having gained a sympathetic hearing in his first few weeks as Nottingham Forest boss, Steve McClaren has come under huge pressure after shocking results against Derby and at Burnley on Tuesday night.
Former Reds' stars such as Stan Collymore have waded in to the debate, saying that the club is paying the price for not appointing managers who understand Forest's past.
McClaren himself has repeated his desire to see huge changes at the club but knows his own mandate to make such calls has been badly undermined by performances on the pitch.
So is it time to cut losses on the ex-England boss, will he turn things around or is it too early to tell?
