Five things we like this month — November

November 30, 2012 No Comments »

Two wins, two draws and two losses for Nottingham Forest this month, but you might have missed a few things off the pitch…

1. O’Driscoll shaking off old reputations with a new way of thinking at Forest
“Sean O’Driscoll can often surprise you with his openness; his willingness to offer an insight into his ethos on the beautiful game.”

2. The Joy of Six: favourite football grounds
“The red of the City Ground has faded a bit too much for my liking and the Main Stand, thankfully rarely seen on television, has barely changed for 50 years. Behind the scenes, the carpets are a bit tatty.”

3. Karlton Watson: Injury, Forest, Leicester and the Marines?
Fascinating, and lengthy, interview with Forest’s former Young Player of the Year, Karlton Watson, who’s now at Leicester City.

4. Sacred cows: Martin O’Neill
“A new series offering a different take on some of football’s most exalted reputations.”

5. Nottingham Forest Ladies: The reality of women’s football
“Women’s football has come a long way since legendary Derby and Forest manager Brian Clough said he liked his women to be feminine – not “sliding into tackles, and covered in mud”.”
