FG Away

Brentford – Saturday 12th August 2017

Brentford – Saturday 12th August 2017 The fixture list was kind to us when our first away game was selected.  Brentford remains a favourite for many of us because of the old fashioned terrace we are housed in.  Supporters are tightly packed in below the low roof and the noise it kicks up is brilliant.  […]

Ipswich 4 Forest 2

Five months into the biggest reset button in the club’s recent history and the world, once more, is caving in. Twitter is awash with frenzied messages about our plight. It’s the tiniest minorities of course; anyone who sees Twitter as a constant gauge for the fans thinking is wholly mistaken. The most vocal, angriest verdicts […]

Ipswich, Saturday 2nd December 2017

Ipswich away is always one of those games I look forward to. When it lands on a Saturday at 3pm it’s genuinely one of my favourite trips of the season. Honest! There are far too few football grounds where you can step off a train and find yourself a matter of minutes from the ground […]

Birmingham 1 Forest 0

Somewhere in the midst of a fairly heavy drinking session on Saturday was a game of football. We lost. Once the sting has faded normal service resumes and we carry on enjoying ourselves. It’s a mentality that has to exist being a Forest fan, otherwise you’d become a wreck. I enjoy letting myself get excited […]

Birmingham, Saturday 18th November 2017

We return to St Andrews in a much better place than when we last visited at the start of the year. That game, if you recall, came within 24 hours of the news of the failed U.S takeover. Needless to say things were at a low ebb that day. Upcoming trial dates in Greece aside, […]

Reading 3 Forest 1 – Tuesday October 31st 2017

Aaah crushing disappointment, always lurking somewhere close by. It’s a long way back from Reading when your team have lost. And it’s even more painful when the Highways Agency organise their lane and road closures around Forest away games. I appreciate the partial randomness of the fixture computer but surely more should be done to […]

Hull 2 Forest 3 – Saturday 28th October 2017

I can’t have been alone amongst the 1,297 Forest fans tucked away in one corner of the KCOM Stadium to feel that there was the smallest of markers laid down in Hull. It might become a bigger moment somewhere down the line or it might, in true Forest fashion, be a red herring but there […]

Hull City – Saturday 28th October 2017

We’re back on the road this Saturday to Hull for the tea time kick-off. It’s a ground I do enjoy going to and the city centre is worth a visit if you can find the time. Plenty of great little boozers. A couple of us found ourselves there mid- afternoon for the Tuesday night game […]

Sheffield Wednesday Image Gallery – Saturday 9th September 2017

It was good fun in the Great Gatsby before the game and the tram ride to the ground was the usual swaying sing-a-long. It continued onto the concourse but it all went a bit flat from there which was a shame. Some will blame the performance on the pitch or perhaps the tea-time kick-off meant […]

Sheffield Wednesday, Saturday 9th September 2017 – 5:30pm k.o

My first ever away game was at Hillsborough. December 1998 on a chilly Monday night. I was fourteen and insisted on pulling the red shirt over my big coat which, I can see now, probably looked ridiculous. Unsurprisingly we lost, more surprisingly Thierry Bonalair scored. My main memory is being in awe as the away […]
