Before our regular December podcast, we turn the clock back to mark twenty years since maverick Dutchman Pierre van Hooijdonk took matters into his own hands - in an unprecedented move, he went on strike before the start of Forest’s return to Premier League action.

Rich Ferraro is joined by Steven Toplis and the Maradona of the Midlands to debate the lead-up, the fallout and the consequences for Forest’s team and Dave Bassett. We also look at whether Pierre’s actions were justified, and the effect that his strike had on the football world and player power.

Sound excerpts of Pierre van Hooijdonk and Dave Bassett, and commentary from Forest v Derby in 1998, taken from Youtube.
