Whilst Billy Davies breathes a heavy sigh of relief following the win over Sheffield Wednesday over the weekend, the discontent from the Nottingham Forest faithful remains.
A run of three wins in thirteen raised doubts over whether the man previously hailed as 'King Billy', is good enough to see through the task of promotion to the top-flight.
Accustomed to slick passing football in his previous spell as manager, the fans have shown their displeasure over what is currently being served up. The Rugby World Cup may have been something they watched, but not something they should be looking to replicate.
A midfield consisting of former England U21s star Henri Lansbury and Chile international Gonzalo Jara are currently watching the ball fly over their head, in the direction of lone-striker Simon Cox, probably pleading for half-time, if only to give his neck a rest.
Bizarre and headline-grabbing press conferences have - in many supporters' eyes -embarrassed the club. Losing his temper at a pitch-side photographer who was allegedly working unofficially for Forest, further seeping humiliation into the image of the former European Champions.
As 'Billy' made his last post-match press conference an emphasis on the value of the players on the treatment table, fans looked on with raised eyebrows.
Davies has been eager to point out the inexperience of individuals such as Karl Darlow, Jamaal Lascelles, Jamie Paterson and Nathanial Chalobah.
Two of which he bought for large sums of money, even hinting that Chalobah needs to "get up to speed with Championship football", despite his full season at playoff-finalists Watford last season.
Sean O'Driscoll was sacked in December 2012 for his inability to string a consistent run of results together. Davies may continue to urge people not to look at the league table at this stage of the season, but it certainly must be on the mind of Forest owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi.
While Fawaz has been keen to portray Davies as his Sir Alex Ferguson, the PR agency he hires have been receiving their pay-slips in the post.
The Al-Hasawis are investing big money into Nottingham Forest, and will be hoping for a reward for their investment sooner rather than later.
Billy Davies blasting photographers may be a sign he is cracking under the pressure, but Nottingham Forest fans remain hopeful of his abilities to turn their fortunes around and win the prize of promotion.
