    This was first the first League Cup final that I fully remember.

    My best pal at school was a Stoke City fan. I used to go to the Victoria Ground every now and then, with him and his dad back in the mid 1970s. I saw Stoke play Ajax (1974) in the UEFA cup. Stoke went out of the competition on the away goals rule. My pal and his dad were gutted.

    „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.”

    Sean only played a handful of games in our promotion season of 1976/77(scoring 1 goal)-I don't think Cloughie
    really rated him despite being recommended by Peter Taylor.
    I hadn't realised he had passed away. RIP

    I remember the Chelsea song ‘His name is Tommy Baldwin he’s the leader of the team, what team, the finest football team the world has ever seen...etc’. Think he was a bit of a cult hero down there.

    I only remember the "Blue is the colour, football is the game..." song.

    After Duncan McKenzie left Forest, Terry Curran was my new hero.

    I liked Terry Curran too.However,when he sustained a serious injury v. Burnley in 1976 Cloughie famously
    stated ‘promotion has just hobbled out of the door’.He didn’t realise(as nobody did) that bringing in Tony
    Woodcock alongside Robbo on the left was about to launch Forest into the best period in their history.
    Even a genius needs some luck!

    I was devistated when Curran picked up that injury. I felt worse with Curran’s injury than I did when Francis got injured not long before the Hamburg game.

    I guess Terry Curran will always reflect on what might have been.I personally have never seen 2 players have
    the same understanding as Robbo and Woodcock-I always felt JR was never quite as effective once TW had left
    for Cologne(not withstanding his winner in Madrid).
