Walking on the Trent. Season 1. Squad.

So. The first thing that comes to mind is for me to look at the makeup of the squad, along with the staff. The scouting department is somewhat lacking, with only a Director of Football, Chief Scout and two scouts. This needs to change, and the two scouts are disposed of in order to completely …

Season 2 – May I introduce…

Wembley. For a period of about 15 years, from the late 1970s, to the early 90s, it was a second home for Nottingham Forest, and the fans, having played in 6 League Cup finals, winning 4 of them, 1 FA Cup final, and countless ‘Members’ Trophies, as well as a Charity Shield, where Ipswich were …
