Season Info: The 1999-00 season was a disappointing one for Nottingham Forest, as they finished in 14th place in the English Premier League, narrowly avoiding relegation.
Managed by David Platt, Nottingham Forest struggled for consistency throughout the season. They won just 10 of their 38 league games, drawing 13 and losing 15. The team was heavily reliant on striker Pierre Van Hooijdonk, who scored 18 goals in the league, but their defence was porous, conceding 59 goals.
In the League Cup, Nottingham Forest reached the fourth round before being knocked out by Tottenham Hotspur. They also participated in the FA Cup, but were eliminated in the third round by Sheffield United.
Off the pitch, Nottingham Forest faced financial difficulties during this period, with the club's owner, Irving Scholar, coming under criticism for his management of the club's finances. This would lead to a change in ownership and a period of instability for the club.
Despite their struggles in the 1999-00 season, Nottingham Forest had some talented players in their squad, including Van Hooijdonk, defender Des Walker, and midfielder Andy Johnson.
Overall, the 1999-00 season was a disappointing one for Nottingham Forest, as they struggled for consistency and narrowly avoided relegation. The club would go on to face more challenges in the years to come, with further changes in ownership and management.
