So as I’m as bored as everyone else I’ve taken the opportunity to download Football Manager 20 on my iPad, which was free at the time and I think it still is! Anyway. the option to create your own team got me thinking, so I’ve replaced the current side with MY all time Nottingham Forest squad. Playing 4-4-2 and having 2 players per position and 5 spares, this is my squad:

GK - Shilton, van Breukelen
RB - Anderson, Laws
LB - Pearce (c), Clark
CH - Walker, Burns, Cooper, Lloyd
RM - Stone, O’Neill
CM - Keane, McGovern, A Gemmill, Webb
LM - Robertson, Reid
CF - Collymore, Birtles, Clough, Francis

Squad players: Woods, Dawson, Bohinen, Hodge, Woodcock

Half way through season one and looking good for promotion 🤣😂.

Difficult to challenge any of that, 18 of them are clough players and even Reid is a distant memory now. Shows how far we’ve fallen TBH. We can only dream of seeing players of that calibre again and I doubt we ever will.

Ian storey moore Terry Hennessey henry newton joe baker peter withe peter hindley duncan McKenzie john barnwell van hoojdonk peter grummett
Even a more distant memory but good memories.

Can’t comment any them oldies but many of you speak of them so that’s good enough for me . 50 years of great players we’ve had very little qualify for a good while now. Depressing really.

04 Apr 2020 18:35:32
Weve had oliver burke 13 million
Brereton 8 million
Assombalonga 14 million
Antonio 7 million
Appiah 8 million.
Three academy players that are now worth zilch and two we bought and made better players that are still good players 🤔🤔.

The best centre back I've ever seen play for forest was einar aas only played 21 games for us before a serious injury but what a player he was proper ball playing centre back.

04 Apr 2020 18:51:04
I missed peter cormack off that list who went on to be very successful at liverpool great player for us in a struggling team.
Best underated player was ian bowyer always came to the rescue with some stunning goals.

I couldn’t include a lot of those older players as I’ve never seen them play, based mine completely on who I’ve seen at the CG.

Einar Aas I saw only a couple of times and was as good as you said, but have to go with my selection as they were at the CG a lot longer.

Bottom line is your too young to remember and i'm too old to be bothered to play computer games?
Good luck mate with your game enjoy. ps just give the ball to stan he'll do the rest.

Fff79 think Terry Hennessy was different class mate, we never saw enough of Aas for him to be mentioned in the same breath.

04 Apr 2020 20:33:00
Agree Hennessey was clas would even dribble out of his own penalty area never panicked jyst kept the ball.
Aas would have been a legend at a tine when we were still a top side.

04 Apr 2020 20:43:29
Assombalonga and Antonio looked real exciting for a few months . Rest are the reason why we’ve been in the 2nd tier forever!

04 Apr 2020 21:16:39
I like it 2 star "forever"🤣🤣.

04 Apr 2020 21:21:16
Fff79 think Ian Moore was the best who ever pulled on the shirt, imagine him in the clough side.

04 Apr 2020 22:05:38
Said before on here he was my hero 20 goals a season and was a winger?
He was the player along with george best who will always be the best for me that ever kicked a ball and got me hooked on football.
Goerge you were the best bar none.
Ian moore was class and would have played for england many times but for sir alf not playing wingers
On his debut against holland he ran them ragged.

04 Apr 2020 22:40:41
What about stan collymore he was a great player for the trickies scored some cracking goals.
