Just used a free bet on Wednesday to win. Might as well get paid if it's a painful outcome!

    New customer offer on coral. Worst happens I get £32.50. Best happens or even we get a disappointing draw my bank balance is still better than before I joined the site as I got 4 quid profit on an earlier bet.

    With our record in this fixture I reckon it could be a shrewd move, not that I want it to be of course. I'm looking at it as a small consolation as that sort of result usually ruins my Saturday.

    Each to their own, but I genuinely could never back my club to lose a football match whatever price or offer was available.

    Like I said pal it's your call, but that free bet could surely still be put on something other than a Reds defeat?

    When Brian Clough was at Forest on the coach on the way to play Spurs the next day,
    he overheard two Forest Directors striking a bet for Forest to lose.
    He jumped up and as they were still on the outskirts of Nottingham
    he stopped the coach and asked the Chairman to join him and the two Directors on the pavement.
    He said that what he had heard re- two Directors betting against a Forest to lose was despicable and
    they should not be allowed back on the coach. If they were, he would resign there and then.
    With a European Cup semi final coming up, the Chairman appealed to the two Directors to accede to
    Clough' s request and make their own way south. At the boardroom meeting the following week, Clough insisted that the two tender their resignations, which they did. One of the Directors was Derek Pavis who was a plumbing merchant in Nottingham.
    After he left, he promptly bought Notts County but was never able to replicate the success he had enjoyed down
    the road at the County Ground. The moral of this story is never bet against your team to lose.!

    Found a piece on WSC that refers to the Pavis/Clough fall out. We had a contract with his firm to buy copper tube and fittings
    and he took us out for a pub lunch on one visit and he told us the story about the Spurs bet first hand.
    He sadly died in 2017 and I was pleased to see he resolved his differences with Cloughie before he died.
    Another story Derek told us about BC was quite amusing. It was back in the day when players shirts were numbered
    1to 11 with two subs re- 12 and 13. Frustrated at wearing 7 and playing wide right, a young Martin O'Neill contacted Cloughs
    Secretary and made an appointment to go into his office to sort things out.
    Clough listened patiently to the points made and after musing over his comments for a few moments said to Martin
    " I'll show you how fair minded I am young man. On Saturday, where do you want to play.? You can play 7, 12 or 13."
    O'Neill replied " well given those options I'll play 7." Clough put his arm round him and walked him to the door opened it
    and simply said " Good man" as he ushered him on his way. In his book recalling the incident later, as he walked down the
    corridor towards the exit Martin said was left to think " what the fu*k just happened there." ?
    Not everyone's cup of tea was Cloughie, but you have to admit he was a real character.

    I had the privilege of interviewing the great man for university radio towards the end of his reign at Forest. I'm sure he was pretty well-oiled at the time but was all the more entertaining for it. When he heard I was from Barnsley he hailed me as a fellow-Yorkshireman. Cheeky tyke that I was at 19, I'm sure I made some comment about Smoggies not being proper Yorkshire really, but he took it in good humour thankfully! The word 'legend' is used too liberally these days, but love him or hate him, Cloughie was the original.
