  1. Pembridge. Nothing like him on the pitch but he sure split the fanbase.

    Favourite Wednesday Goals

    For me it was Prutton's volley against Rochdale from the opening game of the Mind The Gap season. It was as if we'd finally got the bad times over with and we were on the way back.

    Favourite Wednesday Goals

    I remember listening to that game on Hallam FM and when it went in there was such a row you couldn't actually tell what had happened. I think the commentator eventually decided it was O'Neill Donaldson that had scored. We didn't get beaten very often that season. Solid, if unspectacular side.

    Gary Hooper injury update

    Think it's unfair to include Ryan Mason here. He was in a freak accident and nearly died. You can't really put that down to injury.

  6. They don't have experience of working under this manager.
  7. They're not going to win the league. They'll be knackered by Christmas if they carry on playing at such a high tempo.

    Make him captain. He's always shouting. That's what a captain should do.

    Club's Best Moment

    For me (I realise these won't be up there with Forest winning the European Cup): 91 League Cup win. Watched it my grandma's. We are still the last non-top flight team to win a trophy (I think). Got a sample of the "dink" as the text tone on my mobile. Semi against Utd. "And in the end it was the easiest goal you could wish for." Being top in 96. Completely surreal. Beating Liverpool at Anfield a few months later. Guy Whittingham is the most underrated player we've ever had. Huge gap. Drew Talbot going through at the end against Hartlepool. Another huge gap. Semedo on his knees when O'Grady scored. Scenes at the end against Wycombe. Win against Arsenal under Carlos. It's these moments that make the slog worthwhile.

    Next 6

    Leeds are beatable if we get straight at them. They play a high tempo, high press and leave massive gaps at the back. Joao will have a field day if we can put the ball in front of him. Problem is if they batter our defence and exploit our flaws. We'll either win 1-0 or get pumped. They won't go up this season because they'll be absolutely knackered by January.

    Worst Signing Ever

    Sorry mate, but we absolutely loved Di Canio. Yes, he was mental, yes, he did something very silly, yes, he has some horrific political views, but he is easily one of our top ten players ever. See when Cantona booted the guy in the crowd, Ferguson went to France looking for him to bring him back because he knew he was their best player. Danny Wilson and Mr Richards hung Paolo out to dry because Wilson was a coward and Richards was after a job with the FA. Which means we sold a player who was worth ten million for one and a half. He was brilliant. Not his fault he was mismanaged.

    Gilles de Bilde. Desperate relegation scrap and he's more interested in his dogs.

    Who's the second toughest

    While this has effected the game mostly for the worst, it can't be denied that if the same attitude was taken to dangerous tackles thirty years ago as it was today then Ian Knight and David Hirst would have piles of England caps between them.
