Kevin Campbell, RIP

Sauce salad?
Sad sad news. Thoughts are with his friends and family, while my memories are of him banging them in during the promotion season: He's one of those where I saw all his home games and a large chunk of away too - thanks for the memories Kevin, sorry to see you go so soon.

When he was over the injuries that blighted much of his first season here, Kevin proved to be a terrific signing by Frank Clark. It's such a shame that his partnership with PVH was cut short by the actions of the shameless carpetbaggers who controlled Forest at the time. RIP.

Scored the first goal I ever saw live at the WFCG.

RIP, Kevin, 54 is far too young.

Terribly sad news.

A good footballer who should have had more time here had it not been for the cockney spivs that owned us and by all accounts a lovely man.

Rest in Peace Kevin. Thank you for your time here and your support afterwards. You are not forgotten.

Forest, make sure you mark this, and do a proper job of it please.

Top bloke. Top striker. I'll forever remember being at Highfield Road on the opening day of the 96/97 season and watching his hattrick. The third goal was as good as you could see.

Gutted.

RIP Kevin

Very sad news and at such a young age and so quickly.

A player who stayed on after relegation and with PVH fired us straight back up.

A fine player and a great person who only spoke well of his colleagues.

A favourite of my younger daughter.

In recent times he appeared occasionally on TALKSPORT and was always a good listen.

RIP.

Real shame that he's gone, seemed like a really nice bloke and he was a good player for us.
Still remember his goal against Stoke where he seemed to score it with his nose.

That hat-trick against Coventry as well!

Disappointing the club didn't post any acknowledgement or message of support when he was still alive, when it was widely reportedthat he was really ill but it is what it is.

Make sure you don't miss an opportunity to get in an unnecessary dig at the club

Stunned and saddened to hear this. I've been avoiding the news all morning/afternoon so have only just found out about it.

He arrived the same time as Chris Bart-Williams (they cost £2.5m each). Both contributed so much on the pitch back then, and with their vibrant personalities off it. It's absolutely tragic that they have both gone far too soon.

Hearing about footballers from my childhood passing away so young and with a childhood friend of mine suddenly passing away recently in his early 40s, it's difficult to know what to say. Every day is to be treasured. RIP Super Kev 😢

A message from the Undr the Cosh lads tells you everything you need to know about the man.

It's necessary to me, because how the club chooses to conduct itself off the pitch. I saw on Twitter that he was really unwell in hospital, I saw the BBC Sport headline about it and I saw Everton's tweet about him being in hospital. Absolutely nothing from Forest, too busy talking about f***ing Netball teams and Mat Sels going to the European Championships.

Kevin hasn't been a Forest player for 25 years but at the same time, he was a regular guest at the City Ground and always spoke highly of us as fans, his time at the club and his wishes for us. He was a properly nice bloke.

It would have been nice, even as a token gesture while his family were preparing for the worst, that Nottingham Forest as a club were thinking about him. It takes less time to write something like that, than it did for me to respond to you.

We're shit at these things, to the point where it's sometimes petty and I don't like it, so yeah I'll call the people behind the scenes on their bullshit. I'm not going to take away from the thread for Kevin, but it's certainly not the first time.

Awful news, this - 54 is pretty much my age so that's even worse.

He and PVH provided those moments that got you out of your seat...a wonderful combination - sad how all that worked out.

RIP, Kevin, and thank you.
