    Yes Rockabilly,I noticed it wasn't the best of areas so you're probably right.Sad to see though-BC and PT
    deserve some recognition at the location where they made their names as a brilliant double act.

    It was a shithole when the Baseball Ground WAS there- so I think the "anymore" in your sentence was superfluous.

    They should do a PT & BC "Angel of the North" big F-off statue affair at the side of the A52 halfway between Nottingham and Derby.

    Still a historic football site for true lovers of the game,young man.

    I liked the Baseball Ground, it was a dump but it oozed proper football. Good atmosphere, partly surrounded by terraced houses partly industrial, lots of nooks and crannies inside it, stands close to the pitch...
    Not saying this as a sneering Forest fan but part of that club died when they moved, same as Bolton and a few others.

    Even rebuilding a stadium on an existing site doesn’t always work, Meadow Lane and Field Mill are two good examples.

    True,but I guess a mass punch up would ensue between Nottingham and Derby meatheads which would render the statueunsaleable anyway.

    Burnden Park was awful, at least once they built a supermarket behind the goal.

    Indeed,I dislike the majority of modern soulless stadiums.
    As for the rivalry(hatred) between Forest and Derby-when I first watched football in 1966 the main rival was
    Leicester.It was only when a certain Brian Clough arrived in the East Midlands that the emphasis changed,the fact remains that without Cloughie both teams would still be provincial football clubs having achieved very little
    in their long existences.

    It had a great atmosphere before they did that, proper olde school ground.
    Notice the home fans applauding McDonalds second goal here, you never get that now in stadiums.

    Burnden Park when near capacity would make your hair stand on end-also in the town centre which was the heartbeat of a famous old club.

    I’ll second that. We went into a few pubs on the ‘Manny Road’ when we played them once, it was electric, very passionate fans.

    I only went once - when Notts played there in the play-offs in 1990.

    Supermarket behind the goal in the first leg. Leisure Centre behind the goal in the second leg. Proper football.

    True Francis,Burnden Park had been ruined by then.I think your view of it would be different if you had seen a
    near full house with stands/terraces on 4 sides of the ground.
    The NORMID superstore destroyed the stadium for me and the move to Horwich meant the club lost connection with
    it’s traditional fan base.

    Sorry Francis-I missed the irony of the leisure centre(obviously Meadow Lane)!

    I’d like to see some footage from a County game before that eyesore was built if anyone can find any.

    I always liked the Dundee version of this kit (home and away). I’d upload a picture if I could.

    The two Coventry Away kits before and after the chocolate brown.

    Makes me wonder... if Forest had been with admiral, would we have had something similar for our home and away?

    Anyone remember when Coventry wanted to drop 'City' and become Coventry Talbot?

    The football league refused to let them use Talbot.
