Nottingham Forest produced a historic performance in the third-round of the FA Cup, as they knocked out Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal side with a thumping 4-2 win at the City Ground.
Gary Brazil will be delighted with the way his side have reacted since he took charge of the club, as they secure their first win in his second-game in charge at the expense of Premier League opposition.
Still, with them currently sitting in 14th position, 12 points off the play-offs and 8 points off the relegation zone. The club will be hoping they can build on this momentum with a push up the table, as they look to make 2018 a year to remember at the City Ground.
However, one man who’ll enjoy the victory for weeks to come is Nottingham Forest legend Andy Reid.
The retired footballer scored 42 goals in 290 appearances during his two stints for Forest as he established himself as one of their most loyal customers, in 10 glorious years with the club.
Nevertheless, the former Forest man took to his personal Twitter account (@AndyReidXI) to share his pleasure of seeing his old side do the business over Arsenal, as he states he’s happy for everyone at the club.

Following Reid’s post, fans were quick to join the former player in his celebrations as they rolled back the years.
So without further ado, here’s a look at exactly what Forest supporters made of the message…
