The club last appeared in the Premier League during the 1998-99 season, when they finished bottom of the pile. Despite their absence from the top tier in the 21st century, Forest have not strangers to the highest level throughout their history, having appeared in 16 consecutive seasons in the top flight between 1977 and 1993.
This period is considered to be the greatest in the club’s history as, under maestro manager Brain Clough, they rocketed to one League title, two League Cups and two European Cups in just three seasons between 1977 and 1980. Clough remained at the club between 1975 and 1993. In addition to the aforementioned achievements, he and his team managed two more League Cups and a trio of 3rd places before he retired from football in 1993, after the Tricky Trees‘ were relegated from the newly created Premier League.
Forest had a tumultuous relationship with the Premier League during the 1990s. The Midlanders were relegated from and promoted to the division a total of five times in the decade, with their highest placed finish coming during the 1994-95 campaign.
Following a brief drop to the third tier between the 2005-06 and 2007-08 seasons, Forest are currently competing in their 11th consecutive season in the second tier. Despite reaching the play-off positions in both the 2009-10 and 2010-11 seasons, the Reds have not appeared in a play-off final during the division’s era.
The appointment of esteemed manager Martin O’Neil shows the ambition of the club, and they will no doubt be hoping that they can creep into the play-off positions and challenge for Premier League status.
