World Cup of Forest away/3rd shirts

YOU voted the 1979-80 European Cup shirts as your favourite red shirt - but which away/3rd shirt will step up to the plate and earn a one-off shot at the victorious Red Shirt in the prestigious Super Cup? YOU decide.

Paul Severn

You know the rules by now so you can skip this next paragraph. If you are new to this, have a quick read below:

    The format is thus:

    Two halves of the draw: one containing red shirts and the other comprising 'away' shirts (including third shirts)

    There are 22 red shirts and 28 'away' shirts

    Eventually, the winner of the red shirt will face the winner of the 'away' shirts to claim the title of best Forest shirt ever.

    The poll will be conducted on Twitter. Sometimes, two shirts will be pitted against each other, sometimes 3 and occasionally 4.

    Each shirt will be denominated by the year it was in use. Also, each shirt will be identifiable by a player's name. This is simply for identification purposes, i.e rather than referring to a shirt as 'the 2006-08' shirt, it may also be referred to as the 'Julian Bennett' shirt. This is simply the player with whom we associate the shirt. You may associate a shirt with a different player. That's fine. We can still be friends.

    We are not claiming to have included every single Forest shirt. If there is a shirt that isn't included, it got knocked out in a preliminary round played behind closed doors. If this is unsatisfactory to you, write a letter to UEFA - they'll listen to your complaints and sort it out.

    Shirts have already been put into pots or groups. They are loosely, thematically linked. On occasions, some tough decisions will have to be made. That's just life. Get over it.

    There will be a game or poll each day. This is dependent upon life, work, food shopping, announcement of next Forest managers or owners and general other things getting in the way though.

    Yes - of course the whole concept is stolen from Richard Osman's World Cup of crisps. But this is better because it's Forest football shirts.
