Chapman, Bob 'Sammy' One of the Trent End's all-time favourites, Sam didn't get pushed around as a forward and certainly didn't take prisoners as a defender. 'Sammy, Sammy, we'd walk a million miles for one of your smiles our Sammy' is the song the Trent End sang when the Reds ran out and Sammy would always give us one of those smiles every time. He could mix it with the toughest players in the game in the 60s and 70s and you had to be tough in those days. Played his heart out for Forest always gave 100%. A true Forest legend SUPER SAM.
