Utterly childish, but it tickled me yesterday. One of the awesome things about the evenings at The Approach (as well as being mildly depressing) is their habit of popping old Forest season reviews on the screens while we wait for the guest to arrive. Last night they had the 1992/93 season which saw Frank Clark get Forest promoted at the first time of asking, as well as lots of Stan Collymore related excitement.
It brought back many happy memories – when the highlights rolled around to our away game with Millwall (I think this was televised – it finished 2-2, and featured a Millwall fan running on to the pitch to confront Stan Collymore for no particular reason!) – but a comment from a fellow fan in the crowd really made me chuckle. Just prior to it happening, he turned to a companion and announced “Hey, look, this is where Jeremy Beadle scored against us!”.
Watch the video below – if you’re in a rush skip to around two minutes in, and see if you can spot the now sadly deceased TV prankster in an unexpected moment of prominence. Sadly I couldn’t find a better quality clip on YouTube – but perhaps that adds to the likeness! Indeed, if you click through to view the video on YouTube itself, a Millwall fan has commented on the said-same likeness!
