Losing 5-0 to anyone is really bad...means that many players didn't pitch up or, if they did, they lost heart somewhere along the way...

Life's too short to have a long face...so, cherish the good, learn from the bad and forget the rest...

But that rivalry, I stand corrected, is religious...the Derby - N Forest one must be tribal then !!

WHEN it comes to football rivalry, there's only one team in white and black that makes Forest fans see red.

But why does the mere mention of Derby County attract such a negative reaction from the Forest faithful?

And why are Forest's colours like a red rag to the Rams?

For Dr Alan Pringle, lecturer in mental health at the University of Nottingham, the clubs' illustrious histories play a part.

He said: "With Forest and Derby, the one thing that is really interesting is the sense of moral superiority both sets of fans hold over each other.

"All good sporting rivalries stem from equality, and Forest and Derby have great similarities.

"Both clubs have past glories that their fans hope will return.

"This cup tie is a bit of a reminder of those days."

Dr Pringle wrote his PhD on how football can affect the mental health of fans.

He said that the Forest-Derby rivalry had taken on extra importance due to the varying fortunes of other sides in the East Midlands.

He said: "Realistically, in Nottingham, Forest and County have not been equals for a while.

"When you don't have that immediate rivalry, your first stop is to build a rivalry with your neighbours down the road."

He added that the rivalry could be heightened during tonight's FA Cup fourth round clash at Pride Park due to recent changes in the dugouts at both clubs. "Both teams have suffered recent disappointments, but both have now got new hope under new managers, he said.

"At the moment, everything is looking up, but for one set of fans there will be major disappointment after this match.

"For the side that loses, their team's history will take over

I think Derby holds the record for the lowest number of points scored in the Premier League. I'm just saying but not rubbing it in (:P)

At C 'n C - a nice synopsis from Dr Alan Pringle. Rivalries stem from the more equality of each other.

That's why the Liverpool - Man United rivalry and not as much of a Man City - Man Utd rivalry...Man Utd achievements over the past 20 years have meant that Man City weren't achieving anything comparable to be a serious rival so Man Utd have gone further done the road to Liverpool for some-one to compete with and emulate...

there are some pretty fierce rivalries in English football but nothing compared to the Turkish league, Argentina and Brazilian leagues. Now that is something else.

This summer there have been several interesting wholesale changes at Forest, both on and off the pitch, but one signing really intrigues me - the signing of a young Spanish defender Roger Riera on a free transfer from Barcelona. The 19 year-old skippered the side which won the UEFA Youth Champions League title last term.

Why would Roger want to go to Forest?

And why would Barca free a seemingly talented youngster on a freebie?

both sets of fans are going to be united for one minute in the tenth minute out of respect for brian clough who managed both clubs and who died 10 years ago
