    Lewis McGugan with an early penalty and Robbie Findley got the winner in the second half.

    The match was played in Aalen, about 60km from Stuttgart because of renovation works at the Mercedes-Benz Arena, and the Ganzi-Stadion (where Stuttgarter Kickers play) wasn’t available either.

    „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.”

    I think Clough and Taylor were intent on bringing Peter Shilton in by that stage.
    I clearly remember seeing Kenny Burns get away with headbutting Wilf Rostron in a free-kick wall during that game. Unfortunately for Burnsy, BC spotted it and duly sanctioned him later.

    I believe BC first saw it on 'Star Soccer' on Sunday afternoon-bad news for Kenny!

    Not according to Robbo - Cloughie collered KB in the dressing-room post-match Cloughie.

    That’s interesting,Otis.
    I believe there was an inquest on Monday morning where Peter Taylor accused the Forest players of ‘bottling it’.
    Larry Lloyd then apparently threatened to chin PT-luckily the situation was diffused.

    Also a shout out the the away match at Derby where they made it pay on the gate and Chappo rolled the ball into an empty net right under our noses.
    That was the day I was ejected from the away end for giving my fellow band member Andy (in the Popside) some friendly banter.

    The coppers took all my money off me so I couldn't gain re entry back into the ground.

    I nipped to see my other band member pal Janson, he lived opposite the Pear Tree tavern pub. He lent me a few quid, so I ended up standing in the Popside with the 5haggers. It was muckin' magic when Chappo stuck one past Shilton in the Derby goal.

    West Brom away 2010, 3-1 filthy drive home to Gateshead in a total white out, home at 4-30am, four cans of bud and watched the game again, for a total comedy of errors QPR away in Brian’s last season, on the wrong end of a 4-3, followed a car with a QPR mini kit in the rear window only to find he wasn’t going to the game he was off to see his pal on some housing estate in Shepherd’s Bush, got back to West Bridgford standing in the Chinese on Central avenue ( water margin I think it was called) only to see myself and a pal celebrating wildly Kingsley Black scoring his second goal, great times

    Colin fray alluded to this, he's got some great podcasts. He didn't actually name Arsenal but said the bigger clubs were often the ones that stuck you in a corner, poor facilities and couldn't give a shit. Whereas the clubs that had next to nothing always go out of their way to greet you

    I thought mine was reasonable enough, but I bow to your truly remarkable recall of almost-exact detail from 40/50-plus years-ago Cloughie.

    Yes, I stand corrected. In my defence, it was almost 45-years-ago.

    Well,I only recall things as I remember them ,Otis-occasionally I get it wrong.
    If you wish to make every mistake a sarcasm fest,then you're doing a great job.

    Apologies if my comment came across as sarcasm Cloughie, it wasn't my intention. It was a genuine observation.

    I regularly have to look stuff up to re-acquaint myself with events.

    Fair enough,Otis-no offence meant or taken.
    I must say my memory of the glorious Clough era is significantly better than the past 20 or so years!

    0-0 v Liverpool 1978. My old man and his mates absolutely lost their shit. I remember not being able to see a thing during the game and was entirely reliant on the reactions of the grown-ups around me. At the end of the game I remember being carried under someone's arm all the way out of the ground and only realised it was my uncle once we'd left the stadium.

    I used to like going to Highbury and Old Trafford.

    Saw some good Forest victories on both grounds as well.
    It always seemed to be sunny at Highbury and it was a less hazardous day out in the smoke compared to the other London clubs.
    At Old Trafford it always seemed to be raining but I always enjoyed it, from the walk from the train station to entering the ground it was exciting. Good atmosphere, lots of banter between the two sets of supporters and usually an entertaining game.

    In recent years since they revamped stadiums and built new ones I’m struggling to think of one I particularly enjoy visiting. Never got the love-in with Brentford, it reminded me of watching basement football with Mansfield. MK Dons is a nice stadium but has no atmosphere.

    Yes,the Old Trafford trips were great-especially as we often seemed to win there.
    Incidentally,there are only 3 Premier League clubs that Forest have not played this century-Manchester United,
    Everton and Liverpool.
