Nottingham Forest Vintage 1973-79

EnglandOur final Nottingham Forest Vintage post brings you another group of player and team images from the greatest years in the club’s history. The arrival of Brian Clough and Peter Taylor as the new management team in early 1975 was the catalyst in turning round an under achieving club and elevating them to the barely fathomable heights of European champions within just four years.

In 1978 Forest became what is likely to be the last ever team in England to win the national title just a season after promotion and this would be no isolated success. Clough’s team won the League Cup that same season, retained it in 1979 and then went on to win the European Cup in their debut season in the continent’s premier club competition.
