Or notts forest


Sorry, I don't get that.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

They get paid so they're professional. Didn't say "full time" did he.  


Hmmmm, I'm sure most would consider professional football clubs to be full time only. Let's just say that it is a grey area, which does not a good quiz question make.

Quizmaster here, I might have made a mistake and if so I apologise, maybe Stockport are now classed as semi-professional !

Ha ha! I get like that with a lack of sleep.  

OK, just for you, which professional English football club is closest to the Trent?

Fulham?  

Could be a trick question but unless I'm mistaken you'd have to go with Forest
