Nottingham Forest 1 – 0 Malmö FF


Two years prior to this, Forest were in the second tier of English football. I’m sure we can all agree that going from being promoted to the top division to winning Europe’s greatest footballing prize in that time is insane. Comparable to Leicester City’s surviving relegation one year and winning the title the next – what do they put in the water in the East Midlands?! The game wasn’t much of a spectacle, but nobody cared. Brian Clough’s genius on full display. An absolute one-off, once in a lifetime experience. Definitely. Never gonna happen again. Cough.
