Nottingham Forest: Reds fans hail ‘majestic’ 1980 European title

Nottingham Forest: Reds fans hail ‘majestic’ 1980 European title - Nottingham Forest

It’s 40 years to the day that Nottingham Forest celebrated their second European title having reclaimed their crown for the second year running.

Nottingham Forest and their fans are celebrating the memory of their second European Cup victory as they look back at their title-retaining win over Hamburger SV.

Will 2020/21 be a season to remember for Nottingham Forest?





The Reds played out a tight match, winning by just the one goal netted by John Robertson early on. But it was enough to see off the West German outfit on the big stage in Madrid.

One Forest supporter has reflected on the game, dubbing it a ‘majestic performance’. The club, spearheaded by Brian Clough, marked another historic victory and wrote their names in footballing folklore as the first team to win the European more times than their first division title.

Another Red has said it still amazes them when they look back and reflect on the win. It is indeed a superb achievement, and Nottingham Forest join just seven other sides in the history of the competition to win back-to-back European finals (via FourFourTwo).

Others fans are just relishing in the memories as they look back to the glory days. Read some more replies from fellow Forest fans here:
