    Wink What made you support Nottingham Forest

    Just thought I'd try and see what made you support the mighty Redsssss.....?

    For me, I was born in Nottingham, so both my parents are fans and loved Brian Clough. Although I moved south (hence Bucks) I stayed loyal. My brothers are 10 years younger and although born in the Bucks, I took them to Nottingham to watch the game, they met SP and now I'm pleased they are fans.

    Brian Clough. If he'd stuck it out I'd have been a Leeds supporter. If he'd stayed at Derby I'd be a sheep.

    Never lived in Nottingham but my Mum was from there and my Grandad got me hooked. Bloody expensive, time consuming and is a relationship that doesn't give much in return but I wouldn't have it any other way.

    Bloke round the corner from me in Lincolnshire by the name of Crosby. Had a Forest logo on his Ford Fiesta. Which is what top-flight footballers drove in the late Eighties. A player living by me made Forest my local team, as Lincoln City were a whole four miles away. Well, two and a half to three.

    It was 1986 and the City Ground was hosting an U18's England match which was to be my first ever game. My dad went down to the ground to buy tickets and there used to be a miserable old twat in the ticket office who would blow smoke and just be an arse. My dad wrote to Brian Clough to complain about his attitude. Brian Clough wrote back with an apology and two tickets for the next Forest match which was against Villa. We won 6-0, beat Chelsea away the next week 6-2 and that was that, foolishly addicted ever since!

    My grandad. Him and my grandmother were ardent forest fans and went to the 1959 cup final. They were alive for the Clough Taylor glory years but not in sufficient health to attend. My grandads last Forest game was Nigel cloughs debut when I pressganged him to have my seat season ticket with my dad while I stood in the Trent End.

    He despised Notts County having been around in the Lawton era and I owe it to him to carry on the tradition.

    When my dad took me to england back in 2007 or 8 and during the last few days my aunt dropped my dad and I off at the city ground, and we went inside and after the 90th minute of the friendly game, I was in love with forest. Then he's told me stories about how the forest reserves played with the university of Nottingham when he was there as a gk. Just a friendly game. Also told me about how we used to be the best club in the world, all my curiosity brought me to watch documentary's and movies and join this forum and bam, now I wake up early every Saturday to listen/watch forest.

    I'm into Sadomasochism so it was an obvious choice whilst also being from Nottingham and the rest of me family supporting them.

    Brian Clough: Who do you support?

    Me: Newcastle United

    BC: Why?

    Me: My Dad said so.

    BC: Here's a pound. Go and tell your Dad you're a Forest fan now.

    True story.

    We're still the best club in the world, it's just that there aren't any facts we can use to prove it these days.

    August 1976.

    My late Uncle: "do you want to come to watch Forest with me? They're playing West Brom?"

    Me (aged 7): "go on then!"

    It's been a roller coaster from there!

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“
