That was a fantastic night. The thoroughly deserved win, the atmosphere, everything. I thought we'd blown it up there but no.

I know we had to leave but nights like that at the Vetch were special.

I agree Hump there’s been nothing to compare at The Liberty regardless of what anyone says.

I don't know. Forest and Cardiff in the cup were pretty special. But nothing quite matches a big game at the Vetch.

Oh I absolutely agree but the Vetch will never be recreated.

The Forest game beats all the Vetch games, absolutely rocking that night.

The Forest game was fantastic yes but I'm not sure about that.

The West Ham game, Cardiff 2-1 in the FA Cup, Hull which was a horrible day that ended up in just massive relief. And many, many others.

I agree Hump. The Forest night was magnificent and will go down in history as one of the greatest ever but it’s in no way better than being at the Vetch.
I’d also add the Spurs Ardiles game too,the Leeds 5-1 was also special but that was different for me because there was nothing on it if you get my drift?
