Many Nottingham Forest fans have been reacting to a throwback image of Brian Clough in which he names his Nottingham Forest dream team.
The Midlands club aren’t short of history and have been lucky to have some fantastic players play for the club.
The Forest legend formulated the XI back in 2001 and it includes Shilton, Anderson, Burns, Walker, Pearce, Keane, McGovern, Gemmill, Robertson, Francis and Birtles.
Charismatic yet controversial at times, Clough is Nottingham Forest’s most successful manager and brought unprecedented success to the City Ground – winning the First Division Championship in 1978, and then two consecutive European Cup wins in 1979 and 1980, also winning four League Cups.
The throwback image of Clough’s dream Forest XI on social media has naturally sparked quite a reaction from the Forest faithful, with the majority of the Forest fans agreeing with Clough’s selections.
Here we take a look at how Forest fans responded on Twitter…..

Ofcourse he is right

Martin O’Neill should be on the right wing. Keane only played there a couple of times at the start of his career
