"Outside the family life, there is nothing better than winning the European Cups." Brian Clough
Anyone buying NFFC is essentially purchasing little more than a brand. There are few tangible assets to speak of, whilst in terms of real estate, a training ground affected by a secure restrictive covenant and a field located on a flood plain.
I suspect the Americans recognised this, hence why they attempted to drive down the final price. The potential market value of that brand would've doubtlessly been the attraction for JJM and co. A potential far harder to realise from the third-tier.

We shall meet again before long to march to new triumphs - Giuseppe Garibaldi
Down here, you say 'Nottingham Forest' to someone and you might as well be saying Northampton Woodland - it means about as much
We were relevant for a about a twenty year period because we had the best manager this country's ever seen at the helm, but sadly now we have reverted back to the state from which we came
Neither will they be remembered because they'll never make any impact on the top flight.
Let them think what they want.

When I arrived as a fan we were in Div III (S) and even Notts were getting more headlines than us. Then Billy Walker started to get a grip and we slowly rose up again and continued to rise (with the slight blip called the Matt Gillies, Dave MacKay and Allan Brown era)until the triumphs of the Taylor and Clough era. Finally it all had to end and we have languished practically ever since.
I always regard football success as cyclical, so it will soon be our turn once again.
Keep the faith!
A lot of us can relate similar stories but many years ago I was in a bar in Maastricht in The Netherlands and the barman asked where I was from I replied "England". "I know that" said he "Whereabouts in England"? "Nottingham " I said proudly. His reply was, without a thought "How is Mr Clough?"
I think we'll finish above Wigan; Bristol City, Burton and Blackburn will be mighty close.
It's Brum I reckon will save our bacon though....
But if we get relegated it's because we deserve to get relegated. Can say the same for all the clubs in this mess. They've all served up some shite football on regular occasions this season.
