Well fawaz at least your consistent in always being wrong.
Hindley Winfield Hennessey McKinley
Newton Lyons Baker Wignall Barnwell and my favourite player of all time Ian storey Moore.
1966 and my elder brother used to take me and I'd sit behind the girder at the back of the Trent end,great view and atmosphere.
We came close 66 67 but then things didn't go our way with Barnwell breaking his leg.
Once a red always a red
Seen it all Munich Amsterdam Madrid.
Wembley our second home for a while,Blackpool
The good the bad and the ugly.

Many memories brought back there Forest 79.I was stood on my red and white painted wooden box( would never be allowed now) with my Dad in the Trent End as an 11 year old for FA cup 6th round v Everton when Ian Storey Moore scored the Patrick and we won 3 2. I swear to God when the winner went in (after 3 attempts) the crowd was so packed that my feet didn't touch the ground (or my box) for about 5 minutes! Several Sunday papers said this should have been the Final, pulsating match with Everton fielding the likes of Alan Ball.

The only dark bit was Brian Labone deliberately nobbling Joe Baker which finished him for the season and probably cost us the double. Lahore didn't even get booked, nowadays it would be a straight red and lengthy ban! Joe was never the same player after that.I was there for the 4 one thrashing of Man Utd part of 49 000 (Bridgeford end). Was it Chris Crowe or Mike Kear hat trick? Great attacking team under Johnny Carey.Was the obscure cup competition the Anglo Scottish Texaco cup our first trophy under Clough?

It's was Chris Crowe stokey and frank Wignall with the other.
Big mistake sacking Carey,like you say baker Barnwell Wignall were getting on a bit as well and Barnwell was never the same after recovering.
Was disappointed I was not allowed to go to the semi final against spurs,My mum couldn't afford for us all to go and being the youngest felt I was too young to go.
Always remember my brother painting a bowler hat red and white and putting all the names on it and seeing him off.
Spurs were always our boggey side then and he saved always seemed to score against us.
Seems somewhere along the line I've turned into a sheep fan.lolπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Memory Lane F79. I remember being at cup quarters in 66/67 and my dad going mental at Brian Labone for carving Joe Baker in half very early on.
My dad was a little very placid man and at 8yrs old I never saw him so angry before or after.
We won but lost to spurs at Hillsbprough I recall ( I wasnt allowed to go with him ) but Dad blamed Labone for us not winning the double that year because Baker never played again that season.
He reckoned Baker wasnt half the player when he came back and was still moaning about it 30 yrs later.
Dad hated Labone wityh a passion

Fawaz, I can't believe you called FF79 out here. You only need to read his posts to see he is a red! Even if that didn't convince you, some of his stories from the European exploits just prove that was from someone who was there!
