Nottingham Forest Rivalry
Notts County is the team positioned geographically closest to Forest, but they’ve seldom been in the same division and Forest developed a much fiercer rivalry with Derby County, some 14 miles away. The game between the two sides is known as the East Midlands Derby.
There are also rivalries with Leicester City (due to the two cities being relatively close), and Sheffield United, which was instigated during the 1984-85 miners’ strike in the UK, which miners from South Yorkshire where Sheffield is based supported, while those from Nottinghamshire held a ballot and eventually continued working.
Nottingham Forest History
Nottingham Forest F.C. was founded in 1865 by of group of shinty (a sport played with sticks and a ball) players, and their first official game was against Notts County the following year. They applied to join the Football League upon its inception in 1888, but they weren’t accepted until four years later. Throughout the 20th century, their league record was distributed rather evenly between the top two tiers, with one two-season foray into the third (1949-51).
It may be a strange read to those who started following the game in recent years, but Nottingham Forest were crowned English champions in 1978. Apart from that, they have two FA Cups and four League Cups on their shelves, the last of which was won in 1990. But the club’s most successful moments in history were the two consecutive European Cups they won in 1979 and 1980.
However, returning to the Premier League has proven a task too hard for them since the turn of the century, but they will certainly do their best.
