    Default Since We Were Last In The Premier League...

    Since our 98/99 relegation nearly half the football league have played Premiership football.


    1. Manchester City
    2. Manchester United
    3. Liverpool
    4. Chelsea
    5. Arsenal
    6. Leicester
    7. West Ham Utd
    8. Everton
    9. Newcastle Utd
    10. Southampton
    11. Huddersfield
    12. Crystal Palace
    13. Cardiff City
    14. Brighton
    15. Fulham
    16. Wolves
    17. Bournemouth
    18. Burnley
    19. Watford
    20. Tottenham Hotspur
    21. Leeds Utd
    22. Aston Villa
    23. Sunderland
    24. Middlesbrough
    25. Coventry City
    26. Derby County
    27. Bradford City
    28. Wimbledon
    29. Sheffield Wednesday
    30. Ipswich Town
    31. Charlton Athletic
    32. Blackburn Rovers
    33. Bolton Wanderers
    34. Birmingham City
    35. West Bromwich Albion
    36. Portsmouth
    37. Norwich City
    38. Wigan Athletic
    39. Reading
    40. Sheffield United
    41. Stoke City
    42. Hull City
    43. Blackpool
    44. Swansea
    45. QPR

    All of these have played top flight football in that time - some having multiple promotions and relegations.

    Itís genuinely surprising we havenít even managed to fluke our way up in that time!

    Along with our last 8 cup problems are we arguably the most success starved football league team?

    A more relevant stat would be teams that have been promoted to the Premier League since 98/99

    Aye.

    It's funny, when Sheffield United nearly went down to League Two before they appointed Non League Nige some of us were gloating. I said at the time, they'll still be back in the Premiership before Forest.
    Look at them now, in the auto positions.

    That sums us up to me.
    In the time we came up from League One, Wolves have been in the Premiership twice, the Championship and League One.

    We just stand still and I can't find any explanation to it, we actually defy the law of averages.

    We made a pact with the devil.

    Not sure on the terms though.

    Terms were to give us our best finishes in those 20 years, then villanize him for doing so.

    And yet some keep banging on about what a fickle bunch of supporters we are.

    We've been served shit for decades but just keep eating it up year on year. In all that time we've barely raised a whimper by way of protest. It's one thing supporting the likes of Rochdale and putting up with going nowhere every season, but for a club with the resources of Forest to flounder the way we do is just ridiculous.

    I'd say Forest fans must be some of the most patient and easy going in the country, given what we've had to endure.

    You're right, we've had our success so probably best just to close the club down really. Save us all the bother.

    Will you please stop supporting them so the rest of us can watch them get back to the good times. You're obviously a jinx. (just kidding)

    You don't give a shit that we've been out of the top flight for 20 years, that we're still pretty damn terrible now and that the majority of our fan base have never seen any form of success because you got to see the glory years as a nipper?

    And other clubs say we live in the past.....

    About a third of that list will have also played Forest in the last two decades and our fans will have posted online...'We should beat these. They're tinpot.'

    I'll go for Preston, Bristol City, Brentford, Luton Town and Barnsley to bring up the half ton.

    Live in the now.
    Look forward to the future.

    Interesting to see that list BF. Still, at least 17 of them are, status-wise, lower than we are now so didn't do them so much good did it.

    SOME SAY...

    ...the pact was 'he' gave us Clough on the terms that once BC had gone 'he' could do as he wished with us.


    I've actually done some extensive research on this very subject. There have been claims of sightings, long lost written evidence and even ghostly, unexplained images in photographs.

    To be honest, my conclusions are its all humbug. I've found NO 'beyond doubt' facts. I mean, "As if...."























    Owwer...hang on...

    We've had the managers, we've had some of the players, we've just not had the top brass with the nouse or balls to back them for long enough to do it.

    To describe us as "pretty damn terrible now" you'd have to compare us to when we won 2x European Cups back to back.


    But that would be classed as living in the past, wouldn't it.
