By the way I can confirm we firmly have Forest fans rattled. Pre 2016, when meeting a forest fan....the second sentence after being introduced was always ‘European Cup winners’. Post 2016, it is ‘our achievement was better’.
They hate it. Probably more so than if Derby did it. We are taking their potential fans from the county regions and give them sustained Premier League football.
Frank Clark was Forest’s last manager who was anything other than a circus. Their fans in their desire to become a top flight club again:-
Allowed a delusional and frankly odious bloke be their manager twice with full support. Billy Davies.
Ran a brilliant bloke and die hard fan in Nigel Doughty out of the club.
Celebrated the ownership of Al Fawaz who proved to be a total charlatan.
Welcomed with open arms an alleged criminal and match fixer as their new chairman.
Their latest manager has signed 36 players alone.
One of only four clubs I’ve ever heard in the modern era to chant songs with a racist slant. (Hull, Leeds and Bristol City being the others)
