    They could have at least arranged the scaffolding to say "We Hate Derby" or to resemble Psycho's face or something

    You’ve clearly not looked in detail at the red/white/black tiled design on the back of the proposed new stand?

    If you convert the colours to binary numbers and transpose those numbers to Morse Code, you get the following subliminal message:

    „Nottingham Forest FC, by far the greatest team, the world has ever seen; we hate Derby; come and have a go if you think you’re hard enough; nice bakery you’ve got there, would be a pity if something happened to it?“

    „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“

    Absolutely, it’s a general term. I like to point out to people that buy into the Liverpool romance that it’s not ‘The Kop’ but their kop. It’s ‘a kop’, one of many. Don’t let them nick the word, the thieving cnts.

    Just wondering if the name came from the word "spion Kop"? a colloquial name or term for single tier terraces at sports stadiums?

    I remember watching the main stand burn down, stood in the Trent End. Minutes after Storey-Moore hit the bar, Forest were drawing at half time against Leeds. They'd come back from a goal down and all things were possible.

    We played the next six home games at Meadow Lane and didn't win one.

    End of an era, but at least we got a new main stand. That was 1968 (over 50 years ago - surely not?)

    So about time it was replaced!

    Bonalair Wikipedia link explains it and where it came from.

    The next question is:

    How do we feel, that the Peter Taylor stand will be vastly superior to the Brian Clough stand?

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

    I know I can come across as an insufferable know-all at times, but I'm sure your memory is playing tricks on this occasion mate.

    I was going to point out Bonalair's helpful link RB, until I noticed I was beaten to it.

    The stand that burned down was ten years old at the time, but instead of taking the opportunity to update it further, the committee, with typical short-sightedness, decided to replace it exactly with the same 1950s lay-out and design, but using concrete instead of wood.

    I'm okay about it myself. The Brian Clough stand was born entirely out of his success and is a fitting tribute regardless of how 'dated' (I prefer to think of it as 'retro') it might appear alongside its newer neighbours.

    On the other hand, it also gives us something to aspire to as a club; to reach the higher levels of success required to redress the balance and replace it to make it the best stand in the ground once again.

    I'd say it was inevitable in the long run.. Cloughie would agree

    But that would of course leave the current Brian Clough stand as the oldest, and as it will clock up 40-years in 2021, then that’ll be the next one to be rebuilt?

    Bear in mind, the BC stand is built on top of the old East Stand terracing, which itself is even older.

    We could always rebuild the BC stand and rename it the new even bigger B C stand
