has anyone seen the forest ground its just about big enough to hold altrincham they've been out of real football so long they have trouble finding their way to the m1 never mind a decent ground. all that ho ha about cloughie (damn right they did well but in a top league that still thought it was wonderful not to score a goal) he mearured similar to SAF when he was at aberdeen and still had much to learn before succeeding at old trafford. forest are not a big club on several fronts ...maintaining position within football having a decent heritage and a few short seasons a summer does not make
a decent fan base ..you have trouble finding forest fans evenb in the east midlands where so many sad teams reside leicester derby forest county coventry. if they aren't in the top flight their grounds are half empty and to add to that they're not big enough grounds to swing a cat in . Anyway stop trying to compare forest with united its a one horse race and forest have pulled up. newcastle for all their failures are a bigger club than forest at least you can find geordie fans who don't mumble who they support when asked
And where are nottingham forrest now? Its all well and good having a great history but great clubs, as opposed to great teams, have continued success that lasts for decades and not just one brief glorious period. Which is why teams like utd, liverpool and arsenal (despite not winning the CL) are great clubs cause they can trace their success through the decades.
