Bottom of the table after 6 games. Now 2 wins away from the Premier League. Even if they don’t get automatic qualification they’re the form team and will be favorites in the playoffs.


Who wants them up? Rather these clubs with good pedigree come up than the yo-yo clubs who only exist for parachute payments every other year. Plus Jimmy Garner deserves the promotion after the season he has had.

Agreed. Hopefully they slap Bournemouth tonight, then they're in the driving seat.

Clubs always find their rightful place and theirs is in the Premier League. Hope they do Bournemouth and make it.

Forrest is a proper team and a bizarre history of European successes, would love to have him over in the big league.
Its a shame what happened to their rivals , they too should be over in the premier league instead of league 1.

I bet Forest are the only side in history to have more European Cups than League titles.

No team has a divine right to be in the Premier League of course, but I'd love to see Forest back in the top flight after 23 years, including 3 years in the 3rd tier.

There would be something new and exciting about it, in contrast to when the likes of Fulham and Norwich continually rebound between the divisions.

I know nothing about this club but it's a team I have wanted to see in the PL since I found out that they were old school CL winners.

No reason why but I like the more big name clubs in the PL even if they are our rivals. I find it more interesting to watch Everton or Leeds in comparison to Burnley or Bournemouth for example (no offence). NF is the same and I've been dying to see them in the PL again for some time.

They have a player that went to my school and it would be cool if he managed to play in the PL. Nobody else has managed anywhere near that level of sport or fame.

I remember the good old days with Steve Stone!
I am old enough to remember John McGovern, Kenny Burns, Archie Gemmel and Trevor Francis. They were a serious team. The team with Stuart Pearce, Des Walker, Nigel Clough and a young Roy Keane weren't bad either although they eventually got relegated but were competing for cups and at the top end of the table before that.
A really good football club with a great history. Would be delighted to see them back in the top flight. Hope they beat Bournemouth tonight with an 89th minute James Garner free kick!

Will be watching their match tonight, that’s for damn sure.

Would love to see them go up and establish themselves as a PL club. Same goes for the likes of Sheffield Wednesday and other massively underachieving clubs.

Would like to see them in the PL, if they don't secure automatic promotion though I think they'll miss out in the play offs

Now that's a blast from the past! :drool: The Gemmel's, Francis etc. were well well before my time.

Would be so good to have Forest back in the Premier League. Did my undergrad in the city and loved going to a few home games.

All football club's have justifiable claims to sit at the top tier of English football, but Forest's is pretty indisputable.

Like Forest and this young team and manager. Hope they can do the business tonight.

I have a soft spot for all the east Midlands clubs (and one west Midlands club). If it was up to me, they'd all be PL clubs. There was a time not that long ago when Nottingham and Leicester were neck and neck in the championship.

Selfishly would be nice for Garner as he'd no doubt stay there on loan which would be good for him.

Massive club. Like Leeds it's crazy that they've been out of the first division for so long. More CL titles than City and Arsenal combined.

Forest and Derby are the 2 clubs that have spent the longest active and continuous periods of time in the Championship I believe, from 2008/2009 onwards. If things work out for Forest, they’ll both be exiting it this year in opposite directions.

I've always had a bit of a soft spot for Forrest since Davies was their manager, their treatment and development of Garner has endeared them to me just that little bit more.

Great chance to see Laird, Garner, Djed and Johnson. Looking forward to it.

It's probably worth saying that kick off is at 7pm! Would be easily missed.

Don't think Laird is in the squad.

Would be a shame if he's injured again. Would also be a pretty bad sign if, after playing a few matches in succession, they've decided to don't trust him in this crunch match.

Don't care what anyone says, I regard Nottingham Forest as a bigger club than both Chelsea and Manchester City.

2 European Cups plus Brian Clough. Those things transcend time and plasticness.

Hope they get automatic promotion.

Plus, Scott McKenna is an EPL standard centerback.

What's with the Bournemouth dislike? Like many of you I'm bored of the yo-yo teams who are constantly up and down but Bournemouth don't fit that description. I'd rather see Bournemouth and Forest both go up and the likes of Norwich and Fulham stay down until they get a change of management.
