    Default Pointless quiz

    Bored so here is a quiz:


    1) What is the name of our first ever ground?

    2) What was the score in the 1898 cup final v Derby?

    3) BC got us promoted in 77 when we finished third but who were division 2 champions that year?

    4) How many league games did we go unbeaten during our record breaking run?

    5) Name in order the teams we beat to win our first European Cup.

    6) Who is the club's leading all time scorer?

    7) Who am I? Known as 'Spider', I played over 400 games for Forest and won 30 caps for England scoring twice. I was sold to Arsenal and had a spell at Manchester United and Sheffield Wednesday before trying my hand at management.

    VIII) Who ended our record breaking unbeaten run?

    9) Who is our longest serving manager?

    10) Who has made the most appearances for the club?

    11) Only one Nottingham Forest player has scored a premiership hat trick, name him and our opponents.

    12) In the mid 80s we defeated Chelsea 6-2 at Stamford Bridge with two Forest players getting hat tricks, name them.

    13) In 1990 in the 4th round of the league cup we came back from 4-0 down to 4-4 only to lose 5-4. Who were our opponents?

    14) In the 86/87 season in the league cup second round v Brighton, Psycho was surprised to see a familiar face. Who was it and why was he there?

    15) Nottingham Forest 1 Manchester United 8, who scored for us?

    16) Who am I? Born on Valentines 1963 in Nottingham, my career outside of playing for Nottingham Forest included Chesterfield, Derby, Barnsley and Plymouth. I was primarily a winger and am perhaps most famous for being the only black player on the 1982 tour of South Africa organised by Jimmy Hill.

    17) Name our opponents in the 95-96 UEFA cup run

    XVIII) Who did Des score his only Forest goal against?

    XIX) What was our last major honour

    20) In 2005 the City Ground held its first concert. Who played?

    I hope people don't google for the sake of it.

    17. Auxerre, Lyon and Bryan Munich. I can't remember who else - was there a qualifying round or something?

    Agreed, Google would be disappointing (though I checked answers with it).

    You are indeed missing an opponent from our UEFA cup run.

    7. Viv Anderson. Clifton's finest!

    „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“

    Bob McKinlay, Grenville Morris, Billy Walker, Luton, 42, 1990 League Cup (or 1998 First Division if that's major) are some answers I think.

    But you're doing Ultimate Kaos, who played the Sky half-time show at Forest v Coventry on a Monday night in our 92-93 relegation season, a disservice.

    Ending our unbeaten run, I can picture Shilton on his butt. And I think I know, but it could be one of three so I won't guess.

    Went up with in 77, I think I could guess at one, but not really sure.

    2. 3-1 to the mighty Reds; Capes (2) and McPherson the scorers for us, Bloomer for the 'shaggers.

    I've always thought we should have a song for Capes and McPherson. Seems ridiculous we don't honour the men that cockslapped the sheep shaggers in an FA Cup Final.

    Well, we did use to have the "You can stuff your Steve Bloomer up your arse!" Song, which was kind of a backhanded compliment but I agree; Forest legends who should be heartily celebrated.

    I think we're only missing the champions from our promotion season under BC. Very impressive....

    I didn't know he'd been on a rebel tour, no. He was the only winger I thought could fit those clues though.... and your username helped.

    I only really know of him from the Soccer Sixes and his goal in the cup at Leyton Orient. I was at Meadow Lane that day. Not sure who they were playing but I definitely remember being in the County Road Stand when the news Leyton Orient were winning 1-0 came through. I remember being stunned. At time I don't think I thought Forest could ever lose at lower league opposition. Now I almost expect it. But we won that one, and made MotD.

    A very good set of answers for the most part and you've supplied the one that had been missing. When did The Who play the CG? Have I got that one wrong?

    I was at Orient, fun day out and a certain referee we hated had his car damaged....bonus point if you know who I mean.
