Been a Nottingham Forest supporter ever since I got introduced to English football. Being from Sweden I always get weird looks when I tell people that Forest is my team, and I couldn't care less. We are Forest, we rule supreme.

Worked in Nottingham city centre not too long back, lovely city. And that's from a scouser so no bias.
I live in Portugal and support Benfica, but Forest has had a very special place in my heart since I was a little kid. COYR!

Holy shit that was fantastic. Brilliantly done. God bless those Forest fans I hope you guys get promoted this year.
I hope Nottingham forest goes back up to the Premier league where they belong with there history from a Glasgow Rangers fan
I'll start by saying that I'm an Arsenal fan so there's no question of a bias here, just honest thoughts. Nottingham Forest are everyone's second favourite club, ok maybe not literally everyone but there is a lot of warmth for them and everyone I know wants to see them back up in the big time. They're a club that has, in my opinion, earned the title of "a big club", far more than the likes of some that are given it! I'll argue that between 1975 and 1980, Nottingham Forest achieved the most outstandingly insane and utterly impossible miracle ever seen in football! Impossible, yet it happened. From halfway down division 2 to double European Cup winners in 5 years!!! When you allow yourself to dwell on that rather than just saying it as statistical fact, the enormity of it starts to sink in and it's truly mindblowing!! Nothing like that will ever happen again, even with some clubs being as awash with money as they are. What Forest did was very little to do with money and everything to do with a genius! Now everyone knows that Brian Clough was a genius, and I don't forget Peter Taylor in the story, but I often find that what people don't know is that he wasn't just a mouthy bugger that scared people into performing. First of all, that's impossible, if they'd been scared of him at a deep level they never could have achieved so much and secondly, he didn't just talk the talk, he'd been a great player too, averaging something like a goal every other game over his whole career, sadly cut short. I'll say it again, arguably the greatest achievement over a given period of time in the history of football. Promotion, league champions, European champions twice, cup victories and a record breaking unbeaten run!! Absolutely staggering!! And also, we all loved the fact that in achieving all of this, Cloughie stuck a very firm two fingers up at Leeds! This is why people have a very warm soft spot for Nottingham Forest!! Hope you get up this year, boys and girls, looking forward to seeing you at The Emirates soon!

Nottingham has such a strong connection with the history of football, not just in England but Italy as well.

Oldest professional clubs in the world with Notts County (formerly) and Nottingham Forest
Juventus’ famous black and white stripes come from Notts County
Arsenal wearing red comes from Nottingham Forest
AC Milan was founded by a Nottsman, Herbert Kilpin

Would love to see a documentary about this, as I view Nottingham (along with Sheffield) as the birthplace of the beautiful game, professionally at least.
This. Is. Nottingham.

Matt of Forza is being very modest here. What they've done (and continue to do) is nothing short of magnificent. Through the recent years of disappointment, they've been something to believe in and be proud of.

I love these documentaries, huge football fan from Germany (FC Bayern) but I love these little documentaries about these clubs, the amazing support and classic football feeling. I wasn’t born in the 70s or 80s but I wish I could’ve seen the classic football scene . Well done Copa90

Leandro Silva:
Sad that money destroyed fan culture in England, premier league stadium atmosphere is dead and boring, some small clubs till today have great ultras but the majority don't... Football its all about history , culture and for the people , its not about the money !
Rich presidents... Rich companies buying or creating football teams , destroying competition and history... All of that should be banned , and make every 4 years and presidental election on the club!
Scottish ultras like Celtics and Rangers are still alive , and their passion and rivarly is the greatest in UK ... Propz

Forest has always been one of those teams I've liked for some reason even before I learned about Clough and their European success as a kid I just liked the crest and the kits.

Am a staunch Forest supporter from Malta, and I regularly travel over to CG to watch my team….this documentary just brought back the shivers in my spine. Thank you
As a boy Forest were my favourite team, I just loved the attractive way they played. No, surprise then and considering the history, that I am an Arsenal fan with a soft spot for Forest.

Goosebumps - What a club x
Nice video. Thought we were just going to get the thousandth rehash of the Brian-Clough-two-European-Cups story, but very few have focused on the post-Clough era. My best mate is a Forest fan and i've lived and worked in the city, so interesting to see a focus on that side of it, good work.

Absolutely loved this. My club ♥️🔴🌳
What a truly amazing piece of video! I am biased as a Forest fan, however, I do believe that most fans of football would love this!! Great work guys 👍👍
Who’s here after they bottled their playoff spot?
One of the best things I've ever watched! Thank you.

I was planning on starting a fm20 save with forest, so i had to learn about the club background and history, knew nothing at the start, Now i know how big of a club this is. Definitely starting it now😂
