    Default Book: Nottingham Forest in the 1970's

    Anyone who bought the 1960's edition a few years ago will know what great books these are.
    Well illustrated with rare pictures and lots of statistics.

    As far as I am aware this pre-order but fear not, they aren't pineapple books.

    Please tell me it’s not from Pineapple Books?

    Thanks, I'm going to get one ordered as a Christmas present to myself.

    This book will cover our promotion, League win and European Cup success

    .....and our grim days under Matt Gillies at the start of the 70s, culminating in relegation after 15 years in the First Division.

    The promising, though all-too-short period under Dave Mackay.

    The exciting FA Cup-run under Allan Brown which should have resulted in a Wembley appearance but for a shameful Newcastle/FA stitch-up.

    We changed our club crest and it was all downhill from there

    I was gutted when Peter Cormack left us for Liverpool. He was my first Forest hero when I was a young boy.

    That was the layout I first went to in 1976.

    I had never seen anything like it. Standing (!) on the East Stand with my Uncle.

    Me too, 10th birthday present September 25th 1976, 5 -1 win against Carlisle. We sat on the benches above the main Forest crew (Trent End wasn't the in place), only 12k there but I was hooked.

    It looks like cars are driving past the Trent End, did this happen, I've no recollection of it?

    I envy people that stood or sat in the East Stand. My first game was the first year of the now BC stand.

    Went to Chesterfield when we were in league 1, stood behind goal on an old open stand, first half was just like the old days however durin the second half I have to admit I was wanting a sit down. Its a bit of a youngmans game is standing, sorry to admit it, but true.

    I know what you mean. I stand for 90 minutes in Lower Bridgford now and I should know better with the knee problems I have.
    The difference with old terracing is when it was packed the crowd kind of held you up, felt like you were floating sometimes.
