When Nottingham Forest approached the January transfer window, it looked as if they had a plan.
Billy Davies had talked up the window for months, with his need for a striker becoming ever-evident, with the increasing number of frustrating draws halting them from becoming serious contenders for automatic promotion.
Now though, the club have weakened over January, with the loss of Jack Hobbs. A very small minority of Forest supporters have expressed their displeasure towards owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi.
Just when the drama surrounding the club looked to be calming down, Billy Davies stoked the fire once again.
He tweeted: "It's Billy Davies here. Have some respect for the man who uses his own money to keep NFFC alive - Fawaz Al Hasawi."
This from the same man who disrespected former owner Nigel Doughty, in many different ways. He still bangs the Nigel Doughty drum to this day, mentioning the failure of the club to back him in the January window in his previous spell.
Fawaz Al-Hasawi has earned respect by continually ploughing money into the club. Davies needs to earn respect by using the funding wisely and get the Reds back into the Premier League.
It is only then Davies may be able to instruct supporters how to think, in true North Korea style.
The Forest boss has frequently referred to the current Chairman when talking about the window, shifting the responsibility in order for others to take the blame if things go wrong.
The tweet may have been a tactic from Davies to keep his owner on side, with Al-Hasawi talking often about his intention to be in the automatic promotion places. The frustrating draws can't go on much longer, and if Fawaz grants Davies with the striker he needs, there will be no excuses.
