City Ground bygones

December 21, 2012

With two large video screens being erected at the City Ground this week, members of the LTLF Forum have been reflecting on the changing face of the ground over the years. Reminiscences of things you’ll never see at the City Ground again include kids standing on crates in the Trent End, advertisements for Zycomm Two-Way Radio and bobble hats with Scottish clubs on one side and Forest on the other.

Here are some photographic highlights:

The old Trent End

Brian Clough’s famous ‘no swearing’ sign

Eighties fashion in the matchday programme

1976/77 team photo poster

The Main Stand ablaze in 1968 (let’s hope we definitely don’t see this again!)

Also worth checking out are suggestions for what the new screens should actually show, including amusing clips from season review videos, various YouTube virals and Brian Clough’s eyes, constantly watching over the pitch.
