The Quest Quest

It’s likely that at some point in the past few weeks you’ve trawled the lower echelons of your television’s channel list. It’s a phenomenon amongst fans of EPL teams I’m calling the Quest quest. Such is the disdain terrestrial broadcasters have for our beloved second tier, we’re left to scramble down in the gutter amongst E4 […]

FOREST AWAY: Wigan Gallery

We saw another few rays of sunshine in our performance and we saw plenty to be concerned about. Quite how a team of professional footballers can continue to concede from a high ball into the box within the first few minutes is troubling and frustrating. But last season that game would have ended in defeat, […]

FOREST AWAY: Wigan Athletic, Saturday 18th August – NFFC Fan Guide

We’re back on the road after three successive home games and headed to the North West to face newly promoted Wigan Athletic. Considering our own spell in the third tier some time back I have nothing but admiration for how the Latics made the most of relegation. None of this languishing or consolidation bollocks – […]

Trigger’s Broom

In what feels like the first rainy day since the invention of predictive text, my 3-year-old daughter and I take shelter in the ever excellent Nottingham Contemporary. The idea is that the gallery provide materials for children to create something inspired by what they’ve seen in the exhibitions. Among the string, fabric and lollipop sticks […]

Os Tres Amigos

I write this on the eve of our first home game of the season; optimism hardly dented by a creditable point at the weekend. As an England supporting Forest fan it’s been a glorious Summer of optimism and renewal – rekindling a sense that anything is possible in football and, yes, sometimes even my team(s) […]

Bristol City Away Gallery

At somewhere around the 40 minute mark I leaned towards the ear of the friend sat next to me and said ‘This is like watching Forest’. It looked like a team that hadn’t really played much together which, of course, was exactly what it was. The second half is hopefully a better glimpse of what […]

Bristol City – Saturday 4th August: Fan Guide

I’m not sure what is shorter, this summer break or my patience. I’m getting rather eager to jump in the car and head to Bristol. A train trip would have been nice but it was bloody expensive and it’s also the wife’s birthday so a swift journey home is very much required. I suppose I […]

Forza Garibaldi in 2018/2019

In our last website piece, The Summer of Our Content, we wrote about the spring of positivity that has flowed throughout the summer. As always it’s a fragile harmony that exists and one that will inevitably take a knock should we lose in Bristol this weekend. Here, we wanted to let those of you who […]

The Summer Of Our Content

I wrote somewhere at the end of last season that I was looking forward to the summer months more than ever; a trend that has been taking hold with increasing desire year after year. There’s probably a pattern somewhere there that shows a not too subtle link to our declining fortunes but it’s a hard […]

A View from Bulgaria

Of the many interesting ideas and comments we received as part of our recent survey we did find one response particularly fascinating. It was from a Levski Sofia supporter in Bulgaria who adopted Forest during his studies in the city a few years back. We found it to be a intruguing insight into his views […]
