    I like coming on here and mostly enjoy the banter. We are however probably about 1% of the Forest support. So although I enjoy the forum lets not pretend it has any more validity or influence than any other, probably less so.
    I'd be curious to compare the active membership numbers of LTLF with those of NFST

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

    How long does it take to drop a quick post on here, even if it’s “nothing much to report chaps”?

    This Trust built itself up as an official supporter-led movement wanting to engage with the club and become a conduit between NFFC and its fans.

    We all agreed that was a good thing, especially after the initial cack-handed “Fans4Stability” effort.

    I was thinking about subscribing to the whole NFST thing as I truly believe in the fans having an official collective voice independent of the club and having the ability to liaise with club officials about everything from the management, to the players, to social get togethers, to the type of coffee they serve at half time.

    I was a member of the NFSC for many years but was totally fed up with only being contacted when my annual subscription was due. I appreciate that these things are run by non-profit making, long suffering Forest supporting volunteers but I was massively disappointed with the lack of information and general communication. Having said that, they organised away travel for those fans needing tickets/transport, arranged periodic 'Player Audience With...' sessions, have a Box at the City Ground and, of course, the Annual Player of the Year Awards so I can understand the attraction for some.

    I hoped the NFST was going to be revolutionary and provide us with a real link to the club we love. I anticipated regular updates, and let's face it, there has been enough goings on since the start of the season, but I've been disappointed in the efforts to communicate to the fans through LTLF, one of the most obvious, most diverse, most reasoned and most successful discussion boards on the internet.

    I can see what Forza are doing which is amazing and really bringing fans and supporters together.

    What are NFST doing? I've got no clue.

    I think 'odd' is a good thing. Oddness shows originality, uniqueness and a desire to be different from the masses. Oddness is, maybe, only deemed 'odd' by the majority who are considered less odd but only by their own blinkered observations and understanding. Oddness should never be criticised but be encouraged to nurture, develop individualism and to explore the mind rather than conform to expectation and 'normality'. Many of the world's greatest works of art and prose were born from those minds many considered to be 'odd'.

    They are usually run by a few vocal agenda driven individuals...........who don't necessarily understand the term democracy

    I meant to go to the AGM last month but couldn’t make it. There has been absolutely no communication from them about that as well. No minutes or anything!

    We desperately need representation on the board but without transparency they’re just another bloke around a table. It was set up with the very best of intentions but seems to have run out of steam.

    Disappointing.

    "NFST"?

    Nottingham Fans-For STability?

    I’ll join with you Alf. You wear a Billy mask, I’ll wear a Warburton mask and we can ceremonially set fire to a copy the Football League’s FFP guidelines.

    It’ll be like The Wickerman.

They turned off the football so show a video of some lad riding round China on a bike who's part of their clique, it could have been about anything, just "in" jokes being quoted. Then some bloke gets on stage trying to sing Oasis songs and it was like something from the early rounds of the X Factor. It wasn't a nice experience. Ever since then all I've seen is them moan and complain on Twitter.

    As a fan base we are so disjointed.

    There's individual groups scattered all over the place doing their own thing what they think is right.
    I'm not just talking about NFST or Forza either, even in the ground one stand isn't on the same hymn sheet as the other next to it.

    We united under Pearce for about two months then it started to go sour again.

    It's sad to see because we are a true force standing as one.

    And in those two months we were in the top 6.

    Why "1865 Supporters Society"? Why not just NFST?
