The hall of fame, shame and
Throughout Nottingham Forest’s long history the club have struggled more than they have succeeded, but this book documents the rare, unlikely successes and the people behind those successes.
From the City Ground’s ten most loyal players to its most memorable season climaxes, this is a book about the glory of a club that, perhaps more than any other in England, has defied the odds, from surviving the First World War on Football League grants and donations from fans, to lifting European football’s most prized trophy – twice!
Fascinating characters, inexplicable events and remarkable sporting feats all combine to make The Glory of Forest, available to buy now in paperpback for £6.99.
About the Author
Alex Walker is best known to Nottingham Forest fans as the founder and long-time editor of the Lost That Loving Feeling fan site and discussion forum, which was founded during the early months of David Platt’s reign in 1999.
He has also written regular columns about the Reds for BBC Nottingham and Left Lion magazine in that time, making him a seasoned chronicler of decline, despair and dire football.
There have, however, been highlights of this period, fantastic celebrations when Forest defied the odds to win promotion or secure play-off places, fleeting reminders of how enjoyable supporting your local club can be.
