Nottingham Forest Fans Baffled by ‘E’ Mystery on Seats at City Ground

Deliberate Design or Grammar Error?

Eagle-eyed fans were left puzzled by what seemed like an error on Nottingham Forest's seats at the City Ground. The lowercase 'e' in the word 'Forest' on the Brian Clough Stand had many supporters scratching their heads. However, it has now been revealed that this was a deliberate design choice.

Unique Badge Design

The smaller 'e' on the seats mirrors the club's badge, where the word 'Forest' also features a lowercase 'e' alongside uppercase letters. This design quirk dates back to 1973 when fan and calligrapher David Lewis won a competition to create a new badge for the club.

Designer's Explanation

David Lewis explained that the lowercase 'e' was chosen to make the word 'Forest' distinctive and individual, linking it closely with the badge design. He wanted to create a more personal and unique feel for the football club, rather than a generic corporate look.

Points Deduction Drama

Nottingham Forest made headlines recently for receiving a four-point deduction for breaching Profit and Sustainability Rules, leaving them in the relegation zone. The table could see further changes as Everton faces a possible second PSR charge.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the Premier League determine its winner?

The Premier League’s winner is the club that accumulates the greatest number of points during the season of 38 games. Three points are awarded for each win, while one point is given for a tie and none for a defeat. In the event of teams finishing the season with the same number of points, the champion is determined by goal difference, and if necessary, the number of goals scored. If there is still a tie, the winner may be decided by a playoff, which can take place at a neutral location. This scenario, however, has never happened in Premier League history.

Can you explain what the Premier League’s ‘Big Six’ are?

The ‘Big Six’ refers to a group of the Premier League’s most successful and influential clubs in recent times. Manchester United and Manchester City are often included in the list. Other clubs include Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.
