Vital Forest Fan Interview: Part 2

Vital Forest Fan Interview: Part 2

Q - How long have you been following Forest and what was your first game?

Been following the reds about ten years, and my first game was the 1-0 home defeat to Arsenal in 1999.

Q - What is your most memorable moment as a Forest fan? Good or Bad.

For me, it's gonna have to be this season's promotion. Obviously relegation in 05 and the failed playoff campaigns in 03 and 07 were tragic, but they weren't as bad as the promotion was good.

Q - Since you have been following Forest, what would your best eleven be? And who is your all time favourite player?

Tough one that. I have quite a small choice compared to most on vital, so it will probs be different to most.

GK: Beasant
RB: Matthieu Louis-Jean
CB: Steve Chettle
CB: Michael Dawson
LB: Can't really say psycho, so it'll be Jim Brennan.
LW: Andy Reid
CM: Jermaine Jenas
CW: Gareth Williams
RW: Chris Bart-Williams
CF: Pierre Van Hooijdonk
CF: David Johnson

Q - What would you say is the best goal you have seen Forest score?

Not technically the best, but I always liked Jack Lester's 96th minute equaliser against Leicester in 02/03, purely for the change of passes before the cross and the importance of the goal.

Q - Best away ground visited?

I'd have to say the Walkers Stadium, though only because it was the newest. Outside of Forest trips, it'd be Celtic Park.

Q - What are your thoughts on the proposed new stadium?

If we could fill it, thus making it financially viable, then it's a great idea. I just don't see us getting 50,000 a week, even in the Prem.

Q- Which player(s) would you like to see us sign (realistically)?

Rob Earnshaw, Peter Whittingham/Darren Huckerby/Paul Anderson, Jason Scotland (pushing 'realistically' to it's boundaries with that one), Lee Cook, Mark Bunn, and any natural right-back with some pace and actual quality.

Q - What are your thoughts on how last season ended and how did it compare to your expectations?

Last season being 06/07 - utterly tragic. Should have had it wrapped up, but due to transfer market failures, a small yet significant amount of tactical ineptitude and some horrific luck we had to endure another year in this tragedy of a division. Had expected to get auto promo after being 7 points clear, so in terms of expectations it was gutting.

Last season being 07/08 - Purely devilish. Relief beyond words, and general ecstasy at the way everything finished all over the country for me. We go up obviously, Chelsea win nothing, D*rby/Fester go down, Celtic win the league, Leeds get shafted in the playoffs. Could never have expected it all to work out as perfectly as that, and it's times like these that remind you why you're a football fan.

Q -What are your expectations for next season in the Championship?

Mid-table would be satisfactory, and anything above and beyond would be an excellent achievement.

Q - Where do you sit at the City Ground?

Upper Clough - Block K - Row 17 - Seat 97. Maybe you didn't have specifics in mind but you're getting 'em anyway.

Q - Name the celebrity you would most like to bang.

Problem with that is there are quite a few. Lucy Pinder would do nicely, though have always liked Jennifer Aniston.
