It has been a long time coming for Forest fans following their survival on the final day of the season, but it has finally happened, and Reds fans can begin to look ahead to the future.
Many of them took to Twitter following the announcement of the takeover. Here’s what a few of them had to say:
Many Nottingham Forest fans are relieved to see the back of Fawaz.
The timing seems perfect for this one Nottingham Forest supporter.
Great timing for the take over. Plenty of time to get things sorted for next season. #nffc

Many Forest fans felt that their survival on the final day of the season against Ipswich could have been a turning point, and it certainly seems that way now.
How important was staying up now? Just seems like that Ipswich game could be the beginning of something #nffc

You aren’t the only one who seems excited!!
The takeover has only just happened, and this Nottingham Forest fan already can not wait for the start of the new season!
The new owner has certainly impressed Nottingham Forest fans with the start that he has made at the club.
Marinakis has brought proper backroom staff with him and has already announced he's reducing season ticket prices. Good start #NFFC

Forest fans have suffered a lot in the past, and there was similar hype and excitement when the previous owner took over, so this fan does not want to get too carried away, but it is fair to say he is excited.
We have been through too much at #nffc to get carried away but I have read some business plans and the profiles of these guys is exciting
