During the 2001–02 English football season, Nottingham Forest competed in the Football League First Division.

Season summary[edit]

The appointment of Paul Hart as manager failed to revitalise Forest and they dropped down to 16th in the final table, down from the previous season's 11th place finish. Forest also had to contend with the departures of several key players, including highly rated young midfielder Jermaine Jenas to Newcastle United.
