Six decades of Cardiff City v Nottingham Forest matches.

The answers will be added tomorrow.

60’s. What off field matter made Forest unique amongst the 92 Football League clubs throughout most, if not all, of this decade?

70’s. Forest were European Cup Winners in 1978/79, some two and a half years after beating City 3-0 at Ninian Park in November 1976. Can you name the six players who started both matches and the big heads amongst you might want to try naming the two who played against us and were subs in the Final as well.

80’s. Portsmouth and City were promoted from Division Three in 82/83, but can you name the future Forest, and England, player who missed a penalty for Pompey in their 1-0 defeat here that season?

90’s. Name the player who left City to join Forest during this decade (pretty sure there was just the one)?

00’s. City played Forest seven times between August 2003 and November 2009 and used six keepers during this time with none of them playing two full games – can you name them?

10’s. Which Forest player, who played against us at the City Ground last season later joined Chelsea for £1.5 million?


60’s. They were the only club run by a Committee rather than a Board of Directors.

70’s. Viv Anderson, Frank Clark, John McGovern, Ian Bowyer, Tony Woodcock and John Robertson – Martin O’Neill and John O’Hare were the subs.

80’s. Neil Webb.

90’s. Kevin Ratcliffe.

00’s. Neil Alexander, Martyn Margetson, Tony Warner, Tom Heaton, Peter Enckelman and David Marshall – Margetson replaces Warner early on in the game at the City Ground in September 2004 and they only conceded two goals between them.

10’s. Pat Bamford.
