The legends are (in alphabetical order)
1. VIV ANDERSON
Forest 1974 - 1984
Anderson is famously the first black footballer to play for England, but there is much more to him. Spending a decade at Nottingham Forest and being part of both the European Cup winning teams under Brian Clough. In 1984 Anderson signed for Arsenal and then in 1987 he signed for Manchester United two of the biggest clubs in the country.
Anderson was born and raised in Clifton, Nottingham - so its a case of local boy done good!
2. STAN COLLYMORE
Forest 1993 - 1995
Stan was a striker with the ability to score amazing goals and with a rate of 41 goals in 65 games for Forest he caught the eye of the nation in the early days of the Premier League, to the point he signed for Liverpool for a then British record of £8.5 million and 3 caps for England!
Collymore is now a regular pundit on Talksport
3. STEVE HODGE
Forest 1980 - 1985 / 1988 - 1991
A rare left footed English midfielder, Hodge was a huge favorite in a new era of Nottingham Forest. Born in Nottingham he became a local hero, spurring his decision to return to the club in 1988. Hodge is the proud owner of Diego Maradona's shirt from the infamous hand of god game, even calling his biography 'the man with Maradona's shirt!'

Forest 1984 - 1992 / 2002 - 2004
Des Walker is a Nottingham Forest and England legend, beloved by Nottingham Forest fans and England fans alike. With the chant of 'You'll never beat Des Walker' ringing around the stadium, it was very rare anyone did!
