Steve Cooper has been speaking to the media before Nottingham Forest's Premier League opener against Newcastle United on Saturday.
Here are the key lines from the Reds boss' news conference:
On the Premier League return, he said: "We are looking to embrace it. So many of us have worked so hard to be in a position like this."
He added: "There is still a good core of players that were a big part of the spirit last year and we want to continue to build that."
On the number of transfers made, he said: "In an ideal world, we would have liked to have carried on with big parts of the team from last year."
He added: "We are all calm inside, we are very happy with what we have done so far."
He thinks there will be more ins and outs, but couldn't put a number on how many.
Making Joe Worrall captain was not a sentimental decision. Cooper said: "He would be seen as the obvious choice and in many ways he is."
