Steve Bloomer: Watching at last

Have Your Say

What do you think of the Steve Bloomer bust? And who else do you think should be commemmorated in this way at Pride Park Stadium?

Excellent bust. Now that Steve Bloomer is actually watching, can we scrap the song - its awful and its replacement is long overdue.

you could do with him now Dierby !

Prehaps now Steve Bloomer is actually watching, we wont have to have that stupid song played every game. Its a great bust, but that song sucks and I cringe every time I hear it.

No doubt that Steve Bloomer was a great player and servant of the club but that is a long time ago now. Forest has this obsession with the European Cup but that at least is fairly recent. We could have honoured the Clough/Taylor partnership in some way, perhaps a reproduction of them in the old dugout. Anyway let’s look to the future from now on, stick with Nigel in the long term and I’m sure he will do a great job
