    This. This is the post. Right there.

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.”

    That said, it’s right up there in the pantheon. As I say, I only put up ones I’d seen on the flesh.

    Garry Birtles though was - for me - Man of the Match against a (frankly - technically superior) Hamburg side. He ran himself into the ground as the lone front-man in an unorthodox (for then…) 4-5-1 formation, and was a massive part of why Forest won.

    I once asked John McGovern about that match, and the tactical change, and his reply was that Mr. Clough did it to counter Hamburg, and that he told his team if they stuck to the plan, they would win.

    And, well, they did.
    Yes,Birtles could hardly move at the end(a real hero).I thought Lloyd,Burns and Shilton were also magnificent
    that night.

    Johnny Metgod's free kick which put Phil Parkes in the back of the net did that to. Plus it was in the days before balls bent around corners or swerved like bananas constantly.

    Archie's goal against Arsenal on a heavy City Ground pitch after running the length of the pitch. Any of the goals at Peterborough and older folks might remember Duncan's overhead kick at Luton in 73/74 season

    He did. Arsenal were famous/notorious for their offside trap in the George Graham years but they struggled to cope with Nige dropping deep and threading delicious through balls. Witness Rice’s goal a year earlier.

    I recall singing “The title’s coming home” in the car after the game. Baddiel and Skinner owe me a cut of the royalties.

    Dexter Blackstock v Bristol city was the last time I genuinely cried at a football match. A mixture of joy and relief.

    Pearce v Spurs at Wembley taught me what the word "pandemonium" actually means. Started on row 13 behind the other goal, next conscious location was against the fence at the front. Unforgettable!

    Cohen's goal in the must-win-to-avoid-relegation game against Ipswich was pretty special on several levels.

    Lewis McGugan's free kick - when the whole world went into slow motion for a few seconds - ranks very highly too. When you can get the opposition applauding in appreciation, and the home fans are still jumping around after the restart, you know it's special!

    Raddy's volley away at a snowy West Brom - the Southbank went mental in a way I haven't seen it do very often. You really thought that was the marker for our season.

    Quite a few on the list - I always like the ones after which you can feel the concrete decking of the upper Trent end bouncing .. a couple v Leeds and D**by recently make it on to the TE-Richter scale!

    Happy days!

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    I feel obliged to point out that Billy Davies is largely responsible for over half of your most exciting Forest memories

    Goals I saw live:

    Ian Storey-Moore against Arsenal.

    Robbo's diving header to put us 3-2 up against Cologne after going two down.

    Blackstock's winner against Bristol City to keep us up.

    No doubt many more I could pick.

    I usually feel old enough to at the age of 40, ta very much, but there are times I wish I was at the right age to see what you’ve seen. Amazing stuff.

    Yes,it's the younger fans that I feel sorry for as Forest have slipped back into obscurity.
    Us older supporters 'lived the dream' for many years(especially with the European and Wembley trips).

    McGugan's free-kick was just stunning.

    I also enjoyed the moment directly afterwards with Billy Davies smirking as he talked to a seething Roy Keane, who looked to be telling his players they should have rushed out of the wall quicker

    The season where he came off the bench and regularly rifled them home was brill.

    Yes, I was lucky to be watching Forest during the glory years.

    I wasn't enough of a fan to go to away games, apart from a few big ones (League Cup final replay where we beat Liverpool at Old Trafford, next two League Cup finals at Wembley, both Hillsborough semi-finals v Liverpool), and there are gaps where I was away at uni or (in the Collymore years) stuck in Gedling on the dole and a weekend single parent.

    I watched the great Johnny Carey side that nearly did the double, but within a couple of years we were on a downward slide. Ian Moore equalising against champions Leeds, then hitting the bar just before half-time...followed by the main stand burning down, match abandoned, and Forest failing to win any of six games played at Meadow Lane.

    With hindsight, we took the Clough years for granted. Miracles happened, so we thought they'd go on happening forever.

    Correction, it was Cooper, remember Bartman for some reason.

    Yes,I sort of fell into that trap too(it will last forever).
    However,if you strip away the Clough era,Forest have mainly been an unsuccessful,'makeweight' club-albeit a
    historic one.
    I still love them,though!

    Actually, Des's goal - that's a good shout.

    Webb v Luton 89. Knew Forest were going to win from there. At Wembley. First footballing hero and favourite goal of all time.

    I agree with Collymore at Pboro, Barrett v Lpool and Rice at Arsenal are also right up there for adrenaline rush goals

    On the subject of free kicks-does anyone recall the Van Hooijdonk blockbuster during a night match against
    Huddersfield in 1998?

    When Rice scored that goal, a flying Hotdog nearly hit me.

    Watching live, I have one that stands out miles ahead of the rest, despite seeing us win at Wembley twice: Stan Collymore v Peterborough to get us promoted.
