Forest boss Paul Hart has been fined £500 after he was alleged to have used foul and abusive language against referee Mark Cowburn. The supposed incident happened after Forest beat Reading two nil at the City Ground in December. Cowburn had sent off Jack Lester for a foul which was nothing more than slight knock and didn't justify a second yellow card for the forward. Hart walked over to Cowburn and the two shared a brief exchange of words. Hart has pleaded guilty to a charge of improper conduct over the same case, but pleaded not guilty to the charge of using abusive or insulting words.
In his favour the FA hearing, which took place at the City Ground, took into account Hart's previous excellent conduct and the improved disciplinary record Forest have achieved since he took over as manager..Forest reserves failed to beat a young Ipswich side tonight at Playford Road, going behind by two goals to one. The Reds lined-up with Des Walker in defence, Jack Lester and Eoin Jess up front. The Ipswich side was made up mainly of young player with only one player having first team experience.
Forest took the lead early on in the second half when Brian Cash pounced on a rebound, after Jack Lester's initial effort was stopped by the Ipswich keeper.... Young defender Wes Morgan returned to the City Ground to recieve treatment for a muscle strain in his posterior.
About Nottingham Forest
Although Nottingham Forest is no longer in the Premiere League even since 1999, they are the only team in Europe who has more Champions Leagues trophies than English cups. They are often called simply Forest and since their founding in 1865, they surprised their fans for many times. The joined the Football League in 1892 and since that year they competed mostly in the first two League tiers.
Facts you should know about Forest
They were once known as great winners, but in current days only the old folks seem to remember the victories of Nottingham Forest. This great team with an impressive past does no longer play in the Premier League, yet they are the ones who won Champions Cup back in the years 1979 and 1980. Arsenal fans might not want to admit it, but the first – and actual – T-shirts of Arsenal are influenced from those of the Nottingham Forest. Forest supported Arsenal when this team was founded and they donated their red kits in order to help them compete.
But without the helping hand and guidance of a legendary head coach, Nottingham Forest wouldn’t have won so many trophies. The famous coach Brian Clough was the manager of Forest for 18 years and he is the one who led Forest to victory for so many times: a league title, two European Cups and four League Cups. Due to that – and because he was so awesome – Brian Clough was recorded in English hall of fame.
John George Terry – the captain of Chelsea – actually had 6 appearances in Nottingham Forest in the years 1999-2000, but he was only a loan. It was his first team experience and ho would have known where would have been Nottingham Forest if this famous player would have remained here? He had an extramarital affair, but nobody succeeded to find a connection.
The Irish footballer Andy Reid played in the team of Nottingham Forest in more than 140 appearances. He is renowned for his performances for Sunderland, Charlton and Tottenham, but we must not forget that he actually started his career and played 6 years for Forest. However, the most popular Forest player remains Stuart Pearce, as he had 76 caps for England. The son of the star Brian Clough – Nigel Clough – played a major role in the victories of Nottingham Forest and he scored for 131 times in all tournaments, but not as many goals as Grenville Morris – who scored 217 times.
The records established in 1995 and 1997 were not broken by now. Stan Collymore was sold to Liverpool for £8,500,000, while Pierre van Hooijdonk was bought from Celtic in the year 1997 for the record of £4,500,000. Their record win was registered in 1891, when they defeated Clapton with the score 14-0, but their record defeat was in 1937, when they lost against Blackburn Rovers with 1-9.
