    Woking was rubbish. Also losing to Chesterfield in the Cup. And Walsall.

    Obviously objectively losing to Bayern isn't as bad as that but in terms of how gutted I was, it's right up there.

    Yeah, to be fair it wasn't a teeming hive of Forest supporters! There was a lad in the year above though who was a Forest fan, I was well jealous because he had the kit (the second Labbat's one) in the days before you could just order one on the internet...

    Also if we're talking moments rather than just matches, I was absolutely devastated the morning I heard on the radio that Psycho was leaving on a free transfer

    Werenít we all.

    That was a proper, epoch-defining end of an era.

    ĄI 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 socialismď

    Of course, mate. I'd interpret that as a whole different topic! Seems another lifetime ago now..

    1. 1991 FA Cup final. I've never cried over football but this was the nearest I've come. We came into it on a great run of form, went one-up and then... I dunno. It was all made worse by that fact that I lived on a street full of Tottnum fans. I can still remember hearing 'Glory, glory Tottenham Hotstpur' blasting out from a house opposite, and the sight of my best mate sauntering down the street in his Spurs kit.

    2. 1989 Littlewoods Cup final. Not the game, just when my dad said he wasn't going to take me. I think he wanted to have a good one with his mates. I don't blame him but still hurts a bit cos that was one of the shining moments of that last great Clough side.

    3. 1995 Uefa Cup QF, home to Bayern. Absolutely pasted 'em for 30 mins but couldn't get put the ball away. Then Klinsmann goes up for an aerial ball with Chettle, feigns a push in the back and gets a free-kick. You know what happens next. Trevor Brooking, in the studio, says Chettle showed his naivety. Just stick in in there, why don't you, Trev?

    4. 2011 play-off at Swansea. Earnshaw hitting the post at the end. They talk about momentum being a decisive factor; if that had gone in, we'd have surely gone on to win that game. That second half was one of the best 45 mins of football I've seen from Forest. I thought it was going to be a template for the season to come. Stupid me.

    5. 1991 Littlewoods final. My first and last Forest game. A drab, overcast day with a Psycho-less Forest that laboured for ninety minutes with no help from the ref.I was sat pretty close to those Man U fans who got into our section. Bad day.

    Wow, I think this post has been some kind of therapy for me. Thanks, Ravi.

    There's no surprise why Greavesie often spoke affectionately about us when he was a TV pundit given our generosity towards him during his Chelsea and Spurs days.

    In fact, he once scored direct from a corner against us at the CG. Notwithstanding the torment he caused me as a Forest fan, he is by far the best striker I've seen play during my lifetime so far.

    I was a 3rd year in University that year. Everyone knew I was a Forest fan, it was hard to miss. Some twat Iíd known for 3 years and who definitely had no interest in football as I had no idea who he supported up to this point turned up in a Spurs shirt after that and I nearly lamped him. Settled for giving him both barrels verbally instead. Doubt it did my reputation much good with the rest of my course as it did make me look mental, but I was still really angry about it. He didnít really understand either I donít think, because he wasnít really a fan.

    Oh FFS.

    I forgot the worst moment of all when I went on that stroll down Misery Lane. I saw Forest play Chesham United, who featured an overweight, fortysomething Graham Roberts, in a pre-season game. We lost. Most abiding memories of that game are Ian Moore
    missing from four yards out and Carlos Merino (remember him?) attempting a Cruyff turn on the touchline, only to topple over the ball and concede a throw. Of all the Forest stinkers I've seen, that was the worst.

    I'm surprised the Blackburn at home game hasnt had a mention. We just needed not to lose and lost 0-1 against a poor Blackburn side. We couldnt pass, tackle or cross. It werent lack of effort, everything we did just went wrong. Mr Forest Chris Cohen was doing everything he could drive us on but he probably had his worst game in a Forest shirt. I remember we had a corner and he passed it straight out for a goal kick. I left that game feeling broke, that wed let it be took out our hands

    Going out of the European Cup to CSKA Sofia over two legs without scoring a goal was pretty upsetting,then again seeing Ian Wallace played it was no surprise.

    2. Stan leaving, our greatest no. 9 ever
    3. Getting soaked at Oldham watching the warm up when our guys couldn't even string five passes together, and then going on to lose 5-0
    4. Hillsborough
    5. Geordies cheating us when they invaded the pitch to get a replay, and the stupid FA allowed it to be replayed

    Lots of mine have been mentioned - losing at Wembley to Spurs and Man Utd, losing 7-0 at Blackburn (wasn't at the 8-1 to Man Utd thankfully), seeing Clough go out the way he did.

    Couple that maybe haven't, Webb signing for Man Utd. First Forest hero, and he wanted to play for somebody else. Didn't get it.

    Losing 3-0 to John Aldridge's Tranmere. Think Wayne 'the Chief' Allison did the damage.David Platt was in charge of Forest. Tony Vaughan got his obligatory red card, it lashed it down and I got stuck in the Wirral. It's always stuck in my head as the most depressing day out I'vehad following Forest.

    One other would have to be Sir Charlie Palmer Day. I've never cared about Derby. I've learned to dislike them because I'm suppose to, and with the help of internet trolls. I've never known any Derby fans though, and don't lose any sleep over it when they beat Forest, which given the two sides play each other every five minutes, we've all seen plenty of times. Forest and Derby are the two current div two clubs that have been stuck going nowhere the longest (possibly in the Football League). It's bit sad that Clough's name is on a trophy given to the winner of what is unofficially the mediocrity cup final. The only other day in the season the winner ever gets to celebrate is the day confirmation comes through that the other missed out on promotion and won't be going anywhere either. But the combination of losing to Notts County in the last minute and being a teenager f###ed me right off..

    My family are County fans. I watched them a lot as a kid, and always wanted them to do well. Just as long as they never did better than Forest. I wouldn't miss a Forest v County match, except the odd County Cup match, though I went to a few of those. I went to that Anglo Italian Cup game. Went to Mick Walker's testimonial when Forest lost 2-1 a few days before the cup final in 1991. Even that hurt a bit. Clough played a typically strong team in a nothing match, and sent on Steve Sutton to play in goal for them.

    For the 4-0 at Meadow Lane in 91, I sat in the home end and think I was pretty obnoxious as the goals went in. In the first minute Crossley came for z corner and missed it, my Dad shouted "oh this keeper's suspect". I didn't like that. So when Forest scored seecond half I celebrated by hitting him on the head. For each goal. Afterwards he said I wouldn't be going in the home end again.

    Did sit in the Kop for Charlie Palmer Day. Phillips equalised with three minutes to go. Out of jail and might even win it from there I thought. Draper wastes a free kick, straight at Crossley who bowls it out quickly to try to start another attack. Referee wasn't ready, so he invites Draper to have another go. Palmer nods in the second one. I think that I kept saying "of course Notts are going to win if the referee is just going to let them take as many free kicks they need to come up with a good one" in the car afterwards only added to my Dad's, brother's and his mate's enjoyment of the ride home. Bet he drove really slow.

    Waited seventeen years for another Forest v Notts match, just so that wasn't the last one. Travelled up on National Express on riot night in 2011. And then with Forest losing 3-2 a minute to go in extra time I was surprised to find losing to Notts still bothered me quite a lot. Forest scraped through on penalties, but it was just a relief when Wes Morgan scored the goal of his life and there wasn't a Sir Lee Hughes Day.

    Remember Trevor Christie causing us a load of damage when we played Notts County in 81, we signed him soon afterwards and he did nowt at Forest.

    I think we lost at home to County that year, I remember the away end being swaying and ecstatic.

    Remember the game at Meadow Lane as well, it was a good old school atmosphere even by 1981 standards. The old main stand made a racket when it got going.

    I didn’t see any animosity like at the Derby, Leicester type games, it was proper football.

    If my memory serves me correctly, Trevor Christie played for Notts, Forest, Derby and Leics.

    I've been keeping such a list for years, and the litany of woe has just obtained a new addition.

    1. Yeovil
    In spite of the latest debacle, this is still #1. Was utterly abject following the match, near comatose. Being in League 1 was a nightmare and being condemned to another year in there was just agony. The pathetic manner of the collapse was the salt and vinegar in the wound.

    2. Stoke 2020
    Not so much due to not making the playoffs, but due to the utter inconceivability of the pathetic collapse, first in slow motion over many weeks bitterly spiced by the multiple injury time sucker-punches, then relaxing with a false security at 60 mins into the final match, followed by the subsequent helter skelter nightmare. Coupled with 2020 being a shit year in general, while ill-advisedly having been clinging onto Forest for cheer, this was an abject moment.

    3. FA Cup final loss to Spurs
    My first true Forest heartbreak, at age 10. Was living in Hong Kong at the time. Was allowed up late to watch it live. Cried myself to sleep.

    4. Sheffield United playoff loss
    The moment I realised that Forest returning to the top division was not part of the natural order of the universe. Also heartbreak for Des Walker, a childhood hero.

    5. First relegation from Premiership and retirement of Clough
    Disbelief that the team that was "too good to go down" went down. I didn't think it could really happen until it suddenly did. Immense sadness for the decay of Clough and for retirement at such a low
