    Default 115 years.

    Of Forest at the City Ground.

    In keeping with the Twitter OS, what's your favorite memory of the CG?

    "...and...CHELTENHAM HAVE SCORED!!"

    Orgasmic.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    I took my daughter and son-in-law to this game for their first ever match. They thought all games were like that!

    Yeap. Finding out Cheltenham have scored and storming the pitch afterwards.

    Amazing scenes.

    Worst memory - Yeovil the season before *shudder*

    Cloughie's last home game. We were so shit, it was so sad to see an era ending in such a heartbreaking way with both the club and the man a mere husk of their former selves.

    That was both my worst and best, because the outpouring of goodwill and love for the great man from us on the pitch and even the Blades fans in the away end being respectful.

    An odd day, one I'll never forget.

    How did the club go that long without Adelene Guedioura?

    Cloughie's last game in charge.

    Celtic at home, for the whole thing.

    Yeovil at home, the 2nd time....

    Queueing for FA Cup Final tickets, and the 5-a-side (well, you lost count after a while) at about 3am....

    Getting to walk onto the pitch to stand on the centre spot to take the photos that appear below these posts was a surprisingly "shiver down the spine" moment. Very hard to describe the feeling - somewhere between reverence & euphoria!

    One or two goals stand head & shoulders above the others...



    Dexter Blackstock v Bristol City (and Goatboy's legendary post that followed on here)
    Des Walker v Luton on Mew Year's Day...
    Lewis McGugan's free-kick against Ipswich (it...went...like...a...missile!)
    I still rate Johnny Metgod's against West Ham as better, and arguably the single best moment at the City Ground for me.

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    Would also say Cloughie's last game, I was in tears as we were going down but the response afterwards, "welcome back next years Champions", also one of my proudest moments and something that I will never forget. Such an emotional day.

    Also sticking in my mind is when we came from 2-0 down to beat Man Utd 3-2 with a last minute Metgod free kick. Probably around 85/86. I remember the guy next to me jumped on his seat and broke it. My grandfather was ill for that game and he barely missed a game, was really excited telling him about it afterwards.

    Too many special memories though, I don't get as often nowadays living in London but always get a buzz from being around the ground.

    Forest 3- Derby 1
    Forest 5- Derby 2
    Toon fans invading the pitch just after I`d climbed over the railings in TE . Looked up and it was like a scene from Zulu charging towards us
    The surge behind the goal in the old TE.
    My first game in the old East stand vs Watford in the cup with Blissett up front for them.

    LOads!!

    Man, that day I felt like someone in my family died. Wasn't so much the relegation, I knew we would come back up, that team was good enough to stay in the prem in the 1st place. But the departure of Cloughie, indescribable - left me numb and dumbstruck

    Liverpool home in the European Cup first round. I was all of 8 years old but the atmosphere that night still remains with me,today. Fantastic 2-0 win and a pre-cursor of things to come that incredible season.

    So many.

    Of those which no-one has posted Collymore's goal against Man U had something very special about it for me. It topped off a cracking weekend and that goal marked the start of a mini-era for me which said "everything is gonna be mint".

    Also Boro 4-0 was just a magic way to return to the top of the league. Everyone joking about "if we win by 4 we go above them...." before the game. Get in

    Yep, Clough's last game is the one, without a doubt.

    Others:

    Beating Chelsea 7-0 a couple of weeks before the FA Cup Final, we seemed nailed on to win it at that point.

    I was thinking last night about the evening we beat Wimbledon in 94/95 (I think) and Lars Bohinen scored a goal with the assist going to a meat pie someone had chucked at one of their subs. Don't know if anyone remembers it?

    Collymore's first return with Liverpool, won 1-0 and Judas got phlegged on by about 100 fans as he flounced off down the tunnel.

    Lyon at home, same season.

    Last game of the Paul Hart play-off season against Millwall, their fans were banned so we had the whole ground. Marlon isolated thier fullback in front of A Block and started dancing with the ball while the place went batshit.

    Smashing Swindon first game after Megson walked and knowing, no matter how bad things got, I had seen the worst and it could never get that bad again.

    Derby 5-2, obvs.

    Plenty of awful memories too, of course.

    I hope we never leave.

    Beating Malmo 1-0 has to be up there for me. As one of a generation of Forest fans who'd grown up with their Dads telling them about the glory days of Europe I was so desperate to enjoy European football. That must have been the case for thousands of others as the atmosphere was electric that night, despite the fact that Malmo only brought about 12 fans over.

    Drawing 0-0 with Auxerrre in the same season. Taribo West sitting on the pitch long after the final whistle had gone absolutely baffled as to how we'd managed to hold out for the draw. We defended with our lives that night. Made even sweeter as we were walking out of the trent end and the bloke on the PA announced that Liverpool had been knocked out of Europe.

    Stuart Pearce's testimonial. Psycho will always be my all time favourite player and this was a great way to say thank you. Kick off got put back by 15 minutes so they could get everyone in.

    Beating West Ham 2-1 the first game at the City Ground after Cloughie passed away.
    Earnshaw bagging the 5th against Derby.
    McGugan's free kick, the best goal I've ever seen in person.
    Singing "One nil down and out of Europe," to Man United in 94-95, don't think that'll happen again
    Dex keeping us up against Bristol City.
    Big Wes's ridiculous half-volley against County was pretty good too.
    Some of the goals PvH and Stan the Man scored, notably PvH against Huddersfield and Stan against the Wombles.

    Notable non-Forest cameos...

    England win European Under 18s in 93. Team included Scholes, Campbell, Neville, Butt, Fowler.

    Figo scores for Portugal v Croatia Euro 96.

    REM played CG in 2005

    If only these had happened at the same time: Pele on the pitch at HT of Sweden v Japan in 95 & Ebby proposing to his fiance on the pitch at HT when 2-0 at home to Watford.
