Word association*

Previous encounters
Limited... we've done almost as good a job of avoiding them as we have of avoiding Manchester City in recent years. Two close defeats, plus a murdering in the FA Cup. When they were good.

Last season
David Platt's side creaked unconvincingly around the lower reaches of the division without ever really threatening to get themselves relegated. Fourteenth is meaner fare than regulars at the City Ground will be used to, mind...

Next season
Forest were, not so long ago, a fair bet to take the "okay but no cigar" position now vied for by the likes of Villa and West Ham in the top flight. They'll probably do slightly better this season than last as the culture shock inflicted by their new surroundings is less acute. Not well enough for a play-off place though.

How to annoy a Forest fan
Always, always refer to them as "Notts Forest". Ooh, they hate that.

* A unique experiment, featuring instant reactions from BSaD pundits to the mention of the club's name.
