of all time

Best when we were in the prem either Frank Ribery in the uefa cup (Bayern Munich 2-2 Bolton) we only got back in the game after he went off and Cesc Fabregas (Bolton 2-3 Arsenal) 10 men Arsenal won because of him that day

since we have been in the championship got to be Wilfred Zaha or Glenn Murrary (Bolton 0-1 Palace)

Joe Cole during the 6-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge. He was outstanding that night and pretty much supplied Lampard his four goals. Dark days.

One that sticks in my mind, now this is going back a few years and is very obscure, Jermaine Pennant during a pre-season friendly with Birmingham City when he was on tag. He tore us to shreds.

Best performance I have seen from a lower league player over the years was actually Robert Snodgrass for Leeds in a League Cup game. Fabian Delph was also incredible that game. It's the most unjust win I have ever seen us claim.

The best performance I've seen against us personally was of Marek Saganowski when we lost 6-0 at home to Southampton nearly a decade ago. He destroyed us that day, hell even Leon Best scored against us.

Could also say a bunch of premier league players who tore us apart when we were up there, but the list is endless.

It didn't take much for Darren Moore and Claude Davies to make premier league strikers look good against us but Fernando Torres at Anfield was pretty tasty.

In this league, Liam Bridcutt when he was at Brighton.

Liam Brady when he was at Arsenal put in one of the best all round performances I've ever seen at Derby. This was in 1979 and we won 3-2 but his performance has stuck in my memory ever since.

Saw Gareth Bale against us for Southampton, he was playing at left back and Chris Sedgwick ripped him to pieces.

For constant menace it is either Tommy Smith or Ross McCormack. Both have scored against us pretty much every time we have played them at whichever club they have found themselves.

Andy Johnson scored against us 7 games in a row. Got fed up of seeing his stupid celebration.

Nicholas Anelka when he was playing for Chelsea stands out as someone who looked an absolute class above against us in the cup, he was shoved out wide as well.

Wilson Palacios before the death of his brother and his subsequent loss of form put in one of the best midfield displays i've ever seen against us as well when playing for Spurs. Crouch scored an hat trick against us that day, including a back heel, the lanky fuck, remember him being laughably bad at Deepdale when he was on loan at Norwich.

I forgot Sheffield United. Poor saps, how long have you been down there now? I'd feel bad but I still haven't got over 2003 cos I'm bitter see. Plus they're not the nicest bunch of fans (blademan89 a side) and the coppers up there tend to give us a kicking.

5th year this season certainly looking odds on to be going into a 6th year next season. Dont think any forest fans like us tbf do they don't you even include us in one of your songs about teams you hate along with derby and leicester.

Yeah man. Think it just fits and we have no one else to put in there. There is definitely a big resentment of your club though, it's pretty irrational.

Yep it does seem a bit random to me. Although after wednesday and probably leeds i suppose a lot of blades would rather beat forest than most of the other teams.

I think a lot of fans turned that night in 2003. Relatively close match, Warnock factor, really nasty atmosphere and like I said, the police gave everyone a shoeing. Happened again in the Cup a couple of years ago, when your fans attacked ours and the police stood their laughing.

Yes youre probably right. Great night that though in 2003 on our part. Always seems to be bits of trouble in our fixtures in both cities.

Overall, either Suarez or Eto'o. Though both were friendly matches.

Championship wise, Zaha was sensational.

This season Diame of Hull looks an absolute beast. A dynamic all round player.
