Q: What does FOREST actually mean?
A: Fear Of Relegation Every Saturday Teatime.

Q: What do you call a Nottinghamshire bloke in the 4th Round of the FA Cup?
A: The Referee.

Q: What's the difference between Forest and a teabag?
A: A teabag stays in the cup a lot longer.

Q: Why do Forest fans plant potatoes round the edge of the pitch at the City Ground?
A: So they have SOMETHING to lift at the end of the season!

A railway company has decided to start sponsoring Nottingham Forest. The company thinks they are a suitable team because of their regular points failures.

Two men fishing on a river bank in a remote area of Somerset on a Saturday afternoon miles away from a radio or TV, suddenly one man turns to the other and says 'Forest have lost again'. The other man was astonished and said 'how on earth do you know that ?' The other man replied 'It's quarter to five.'

The City Ground celebrations were underway on Wednesday when it was announced that groundsman Steve Welch and his team had won the National Groundsman of the Year award. They beat off competition from the other divisional winners - Arsenal, Reading and Macclesfield at a FA lunch in Windsor. Steve said: 'I came here from Leicester because I knew I'd have an easy job here. There's so much shit out there on Saturday afternoons the pitch takes care of itself.'

One Nottingham Forest fan says to his mate, 'What would you do if you won the lottery?' 'Easy! I'd buy a controlling interest in Forest' says the mate. 'Yeah, but what if you got FOUR numbers up?'
