In 1979 and 1980, Brian Clough's Nottingham Forest team achieved levels of greatness that few teams in Europe, let alone Britain, could ever hope to reach. By winning the European Cup twice in two years, as well as the 1st Division league championship and the European Super Cup, the team surpassed all possible levels of expectation, especially as they had finished 13th in Division Two less two years before. How can this team or its legendary manager not feature in the UK's National Football Museum's Hall of Fame? Currently there are only six teams who have been bestowed this honour: Manchester United's European Cup winners from 1968, the Busby Babes of the 1950s, the Liverpool team of 1978, the 1966 World Cup winners, Preston's Invincibles, the Manchester City side that won the league, FA Cup and Cup-Winner's Cup from 1968-1970 and finally the Aston Villa team who won the European Cup in 1982. These are clearly all very worthy inductees, but there is surely a valid arguement that Brian Clough's team of 78/79 and 79/80 should be listed here as well? If the Nottingham Forest team were to take their rightful place in the hall of fame at the National Football Museum it would be a tremendous moment for the city of Nottingham and act as a lasting tribute to Brian Cough, Peter Taylor and their incredible Nottingham Forest team. Please make this happen!!
