Monday 17th September 1979

Peter Taylor denied that £1 million man Trevor Francis was being shown the door at Nottingham Forest. ''Trevor Francis will stay at this club as long as Brian Clough and I are in charge, 'he inaccurately predicted. 'It's unbelievable that anyone could think otherwise that there appears to be a campaign, which disgusts and angers me.'

Tuesday 18th September 2007

Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Paul Smith achieved comething no Forest custodian had achived prior to him by scoring in a match. this goal came with a caveat though, as it wasn't a typical wind assisted punt, Penalty or last minute finish. the game in which it occurred was a Carling Cup second round tie against Leicester City. this was a replay of an abandoned game which had taken place, three weeks earlier which was halted at half time when the Foxes' Clive Clarke fell dangerously ill As Forest were 1-0 up at the time of the abandonment Leicester extremely sportingly allowed Smith to gentle dribble the ball up the pitch and stroke it into the net as soon as the peplay licked off.

Tuesday 19th September 1961

The City Ground switched on its floodlights for the very first time for a league game with an evening encounter with Wolverhampton Wanderers. the Forest side were suitably enlightened, enjoying a 3-1 victory with goals by Colin Booth, 'Flip' Le Flem anf Geoff Vowden ....

Saturday 19th September 1981

A surprise team selection for Nottingham Forest at Stoke City as the number 11 shirt was unexpectedly occupied by Colin Walsh as opposed to its owner for the past six years, John Robertson. what's even more surprising is that Walsh hadn't even travelled yo the potteries with Forest. it turned out that Robertson had handed in a transfer request before the game and was immediately sent home, while Walsh was phoned up as the Scotsman's replacement and arrived at the Victoria Ground a mere half an hour before the game was due to kick off.

Tuesday 23rd September 1980

Nottingham Forest set their record League Cup score by defeating the league's bottom side, Bury, 7-0 at Gigg Lane. The scorline flattered Forest a bit, the Reds scoring twice in the dying moments of the game, and Bury also missed a Penalty. Raimondo Ponte scored three, with the other goals coming from Gary Mills, Viv Anderson and Garry Birtles.

Saturday 24th September 1960

Nottingham Forest finally appointed a replacement for long serving manager Billy Walker in the form of Andy Beattie, who had been the first manager of the Scottish national team. Successful in the lower leagues with Barrow and Stackport County, Walker rescued Huddersfield Town from Division Two and jointly managed Scotland and Nottingham Forest for a time before resigning his international post in November 1960 to concentrate on the up and coming Famous team, Beattie surprisingly resigned at the end of the 1962/63 season, having guided Forest to a finishing place of ninth in the top flight,their best finish since 1908.

Saturday 26th September 1953

Versatile forward Ronald 'Tot' Leverton played his final game for the club before being transferred to Notts County in a 3-1 defeat to Fulham at Craven Cottage. This move came at a surprising time, as 'Tot' had finally established himself as the club's centre forward after years of deputising for Forest's more established forwards. he spent three seasons at Meadow Lane before joining Walsall in 1956.

Who was it who said hooliganism is a moden blight? A game at Derby County between Nottingham Forest and the Rams was abandoned after 70 minutes when supporters invaded the pitch with the scoreline at 1-1. the game was replayed six weeks later with Derby County coming out on top with a 2-1 victory............

ON THIS DAY Thursday 4th October 1990

The very sad news came through that Brian Clough's eternal right hand man, Peter Taylor, had suddenly passed away while holidaying in Majorca, at the age of 62. The former inseparable pals hadn't spoken since 1983 following Taylor's return to Derby and the Signing of John Robertson, but reportedly Clough still cried heavily when told the news. Clough dedicated his 1994 autobiography to Taylor, saying To Peter. Still miss you badly. You once said: When you get shot of me ehere won't be as much laughter in your life. 'You were right.'

RIP Mr Peter Taylor.

Saturday 7th October 1978

Nottingham Forest confirmed their place as the current dominating force of English football by beating Wolverhampton (DINGLES) Wanderers 3-1 at the famous city ground to record their 35th consecutive leage game without defeat, setting a new record for the top flight.


Friday 7th October 1988

Brian Clough rescued Lee Chapman from his French nighmare by bringing him back to English Football from Chamois Niortais, for whom he'd signed from Sheffield Wednesday just over four months previously. the transfer was held up by the Football League as the Owls were still owed money by the French side, but Chapman was cleared to don a Red shirt once successful negotiations had taken place. Chapman's spell at Nottingham Forest would only last 14 months, during which he scored 27 goals in 71 games, before he was sold to Dirty Leeds in January 1990 for £400,000. he went on to win a league championship winners medal with Dirty Leeds United in 1992.

Thursday 8th October 1987

Brian Clough made one of his surprise transfer signings in picking up totally unknown Doncaster Rovers striker Tommy Gaynor for £250,000. the irishman took his chance in the linelight and performed magnificently whenever called upon, including in the 1987 Littlewoods Cup Final against Luton Town. he scored a memorable goal against Huddersfield Town in the same competition later that year, collecting the ball in his own penalty area before dribbling the entire length of the pitch and firing home from 20 yards: Brilliant goal bounce bounce

Wilson had replaced Alan Hinton wgo'd scored the fourth goal, earlier in the match. He left Carlisle United later that season, then played for Grimsby Town, Walsall, Burnley and Chesterfield.

Saturday 10th October 1937

Dave 'boy' Martin scored against Chesterfield in a 2-2 draw at the City Ground, the eight seccessive game in which he had found the net. A record signing of £7,000 in 1936 from Wolverhampton DINGLES Wanderers (who in turn had paid £5.000 to Belfast Celtic for the prolific Irishman in 1934) Martin had spent his childhood in an orphanage before joining the Royal Ulter Rifles as a drummer boy. earning the 'Boy' nickname that remained with him for the rest of his life. a talented but temperamental centre forward who seldom saw eye to eye with management, Martin scored 46 goals in 84 games with Nottingham Forest before moving on to Notts County in 1938. He seved in World War II and was badly injured in 1944 in the invasion of Normandy, but recovered to continue his life long love of Football playing for Ballymoney and Ballymena. Dave passed away in January 1991

(dont make um like that anymore) RIP Dave 'Boy' Martin.


Saturday 10th October 1981

£1 million pound man, Justin Fashanu finally broke his goalscoring Duck with a goal at Middlesbrough on a 1-1 draw. it was his ninth league game sonce his expensive and protracted signing from Norwich City. Fashanu would go on to score only four league goals all season, his last coming against the Arsenal in November of that year...........

Question I remember him scoring a boster for Norwich City once...............

Saturday 11th October 1975

A tame 0-0 draw at Fulham marked the end of George Lyall's Nottingham Forest career after more than three seasons at the City Ground. the Scot had been signed from Preston Noth End for the start of the 1972-1973 season and had provided sterling service on the right wing for much of the early 1970s. he was mooted as a candidate for Scotland's 1974 Wold Cup Squad. The emergence of Terry Curran and the increase in promise of Young Martin O'Neill meant someone had to be sacrificed in the Nottingham Forest midfield. and Lyall was sold off to Hull City.

This game also marked striker David Sunley's only game for Nottingham Forest.

Saturday 16th October 1982

Kenny Swain made his debut for the club in a 1-1 draw at Home to Birmingham City after signing on loan from Aston Villa as cover for the injured Viv Anderson. Previously a Chelsea striker, Swain had been converted to a right back while at Aston Villa where he had won Championship and European Cup winners medals, once Anderson returned the deal was made permanent as Swain moved instead to the left flank, where he'd remain the club's regular number three until the signing of the famous Stuart Pearce. He joined Portsmouth in 1985, then Crew in 1988, with whom he ended his career. Swain had a brief spell in charge at Wigan Athletic for the 1993/94 season, then joined the England set up as under 16s manager in 2004.


Saturday 16th October 1999

David Platt set a record by becoming the first Nottingham Forest manager to be sent off in a game, earning his marching orders in the last minute of a match at Bramall Lane, Platt's sin was a crude tackle on Shefield United's Paul Devlin, the same player whom Nigel Quasshie had elbowed just before half time to also see a red card. the nine men of Forest ended up on the wrong end of a 2-1 scoreline, having been ahead at one stage thanks to a Dougie Freedman goal.

Tuesday 17th October 1978

Brian Clough complained about the more boisterous elements of the Nottingham Forest support, claiming he was sick and tired of their behaviour. 'All they could do was chant abuse and obscenities at opposing players and fans instead of getting behind the Forest team, 'he said.


Wednesday 17th October 1979.

Nottingham Forest players provided four of the goals that beat Northern Ireland 5-1 at Windsor Park in a European Championship qualifier. Trevor Francis opened the scoring after 18 minutes, and Tony Woodcock doubled the lead after 34 minutes with his first international goal. in the second half Francis made it 3-1 just before the hour mark, then Woodcock made it 4-1 on 71, before Jimmy Nicholl completed the mauling with an own-goal three minutes later, Nottingham Forest's Peter Shilton made his own slight contribution to the score-line, failing to save Vic Moreland's 50th minute Penalty.

Wednesday 18th October 1978

Nottingham Forest finally got to play against genuine foreign opposition in the European Cup after seeing off Liverpool in the first round, beating Greek Champions AEK Athens 2-1 away thanks to goals by John McGovern and Garry Birtles, A dubious penalty scored by Constadinou Tassos after Kenny Burns was adjudged to have brought down Thomas Mavros kept AEKs interest in the Trophy.

Tuesday 18th October 2005

Undoubtedly one of Nottingham Forest's poorest performances of all time as the former European Champions went down by the odd goal in five in the LDV Vans Trophy to non league Woking in front of a pitiful 3,127 spectators at the Kingfield Stadium. Mark Rawle gave the Conference side an unexpected lead after 10 minutes but goals by Eugen Bopp and Spencer Weir Daley saw Gary Megson's youthful Nottingham Forest side ahead. Eight minutes into the second half Rawle scored his second then with 25 to go Justin Richards edged the non league side ahead, Forest had no answer to Woking's third goal and they crashed out of the Cup....

Colin Walsh scored a last minute penalty to enable Nottingham Forest to take home a quite unexpected 2-1 lead from Holland against PSV Eindhoven in the first leg of the second round of the UEFA Cup. Hardly the favourites for the game, Peter Davenport had given Forest a shock lead after 51 minutes. PSV fought back and achieved parity for five minutes when Jurrie Koolhof scored a penalty after 85 minutes, before Walsh's last gasp spot kick.
