Stuart Pearce is 52 today and to celebrate we’re taking a look back at his greatest goals for Nottingham Forest.
In a side that played some seriously silky football, ‘Psycho’ provided the power. Rampaging forward whenever he could from his position of left-back, opposing defenders bounced off the giant hams that he called thighs.
When he got within shooting distance - which for Pearce was anywhere within 45 yards from goal - he would unleash the sort of shot which would have goalkeepers hiding for cover. To this day Pearce remains the closest that the real world has seen to comic book hero Hot Shot Hamish.
Watch the best ever goals by Pearce in a Forest shirt and remember the good times rather than his brief spell as manager. If nothing else you’ll be absolutely astounded at the length of his free-kick runs ups.
