There’s what the club have been doing, and there’s what the fans have been doing.
And they are vastly different in terms of splendour.
Noted Nottingham Forest fan group Forza Garibaldi have spent the past few days putting together the flags and banners that will be put in place at the City Ground, and are now finally in a position to show off their work.
Whether it be through their own contributions, or with the flags that supporters have sent in to try and make the City Ground feel more like home for the last few weeks of the season, I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that they have done a magnificent job, even getting praise from Forest keeper Brice Samba in the process.
Will the 2020/21 season be played entirely behind closed doors?
So when the pictures were shown on social media, it was no surprise to see that fans couldn’t contain their emotion at the sight of what the ground has become, and they were sure to thank Forza Garibaldi for their efforts.
well what can I say? just class, absolute class. well done to all involved. COYR 🔴⚪️🔴⚪️🔴⚪️⚽️
