Mills felt it necessary to slag off his former Manchester City manager, despite the fact he couldn’t hold a torch to him as a player.
The outspoken pundit is now up to his usual tricks. You know, the ones where he offers an opinion on a club where he has done very little research – if any at all!
Mills was a steady player. He played his best football at Leeds United and also collected 19 caps for England.
Now, he’s been quizzed on the Reds again and would you believe it, he’s been negative regarding Forest.
He believes that the situation smacks of Evangelos Marinakis meddling with football affairs, with Cooper on borrowed time.
Mills told TalkSPORT: “It smacks of a meddling owner, making signings.
“Because of that reason, the writing is on the wall for Steve Cooper for that reason.
“Does Cooper have enough credit in the bank to stand up to the owner? I’m not sure.”
Writing isn’t on the wall for Cooper, Mills is wrong again
It’s growing tiresome hearing about how many players Forest signed during the summer.
Nobody seems to be mentioning the fact that 20 have left the club either on loan or permanently since promotion was secured.
Furthermore, nobody seemed to bat an eyelid when Forest added 22 new signings during the summer of 2020 when Sabri Lamouchi was in charge.
Mills clearly isn’t clued up on why Forest spent the money they did in the summer.
Last season’s team was decimated, with five loanees not signing permanently and the club captain departing.
Furthermore, Brice Samba chose to leave the City Ground after three years in England to return to France.
The one con of being in the Premier League is the media scrutiny.
Every day it seems that someone else is queuing up to take a pop shot at either Marinakis or the club.
Ultimately, the owner has shown a great deal of ambition since Forest won at Wembley and that has to be applauded.
Okay, things haven’t clicked just yet but under Cooper, the good days could be just around the corner again.
