    Derry, although spells his name wrong.

    Dyche never played for Forest but does spell his name right at least.

    Wright-Phillips, although not a strong case as he never signed pro here and spells his name wrong.

    We had a young Irish guy called Sean McCashin on our books around 2009 or 2010. He played a friendly against Rushden and Diamonds but was let go and went back to Ireland I think.

    Garry Birtles sticking one past Southampton goalkeeper Terry Gennoe, during the 1979 League Cup Final.

    It still looks like that today.

    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

    Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.

    You'd probably struggle to buy anything for 3.40 now. 3.40 Bitcoins, maybe.

    That will be the shop in the city-centre on Clinton Street when it was managed by Adrian Sheldrick who is shown in the photo.

    Sheldrick later has a T-shirt manufacturing business (in Long Eaton IIRC), printing images and slogans to order. When we made it to the League One play-offs against Yeovil, he took it on himself to produce a load of "Forest At Wembley" T-shirts in anticipation of the 2nd-leg being a formality, which obviously proved to be a big mistake. Not wasting any opportunity - and despite being a self-proclaimed die-hard Forest fan - he took piles of them over to Derby on the eve of Derby's play-off final against WBA, shifting them in various city-centre pubs, for their fans to gleefully display to the TV cameras at Wembley the next day.

    A brilliant story Frank. Thanks for sharing it, very much appreciated.

    There's such a thing as a business opportunity Gary, and then there's shameless opportunism.

    It's safe to say Sheldrick's actions didn't go down too well with those of us at the time who knew him, and I know I speak for most when I say that I'd have rather taken a hit than resort to that stunt in order to claw-back a few bob!

    Claw it back, I think my brother, had it been him, would have doubled the price to Derby fans knowing they would relish rubbing our faces in it.

    We had one of those cash registers in our bookshop in the 90s. Then I had the bright idea of linking it to the (very basic and early) computer system. Created chaos, none of us had any idea how these things worked.

    The Colwick Road entrance even has its own song.

    A very young Sammy Chapman. What a player he was.

    As well as being able to play, Sammy was a genuine hardman who would have casually brushed-off the likes of Vinny Jones, and even Psycho, with relative ease Gary, had he been around in their era.

    Kenny Burns has described him as his toughest-ever opponent before he effectively replaced Sammy at the CG.

    Sammy was essentially the team 'minder' for many years Chris, and more-so when he moved from centre-forward to centre-back and captain.

    It shouldn't be overlooked that Cloughie valued his presence and his ability to pass-out from the back, and he was excellent during our promotion season.

    Absolutely Frank, "Six foot two, eyes of blue, Sammy Chapman's after you..."
