Vital Forest Fan Interview: Part 5

Vital Forest Fan Interview: Part 5

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

Born in January 1976, and it was either support Forest or be adopted, so 32 years!

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

Oooh sticking 7 past Chelsea! erm probably Bryan Roys goal against Malmo, a great game, brilliant atmosphere and gave me a snippet of what it would have been like in the late 70's.

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

Ok Im going to pick the best 11 I have seen play and not since I was inducted. GK. Sutty. RB. Laws - Cant understand why Gary Charles won 2 England caps and Laws didn't. LB. Brett Williams haha only kidding. Psycho of course. Dessie. How is it possible not to include him. CB Chris Fairclough. In my opinion a better reader of the game than Dessie MC Metgod. Just pure class, money could buy a better player of the game Roy Keane. What a compliment to Metgod he would have been. AML Steve Hodge. Awesome player, totally under rated. AMR Steve Stone. would have had more England caps if it wasnt for Becks. CF Pierre Van Hooijdonk. Just a genius, shame we could support his ambition. CF Stanley Victor Collymore. The best striker of a ball I have ever seen. What a player, how much would he be worth in today's money? Ronaldo isnt in the same class. All time favourite: Nigel Clough, didn't make my best 11 but doesn't stop him from being my favourite.

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

Hooijdonk scored an unbelievable goal from the touchline by the Brian Clough Stand, into the Bridgford End against Huddersfield, think we scored 3 or 4 that day. Neil Webbs goal against Luton in the Littlewoods Cup Final had a brilliant build up, from memory Psycho ran down the left and switched it to the right flank, where if I remember rightly Tommy Gaynor took it on his chest and crossed for Webb, his ball control took him past Les Sealey leaving him with a virtually open goal... That's how I recall it anyway.

Q - Best away ground visited?

The Brian Moore stand at Gillingham haha or is it Edgley Park lol. Honestly though it has to be Pride Park. Its pretty average really but shocking to see that such a poor club can have a nice ground for its lambs.

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

Yeah its really exciting. The City Ground is beautiful set against the Trent, however we need it expanding for the future. If we do move the design has to be right and hard to replicate, I dont want it to be another Walkers Stadium, Shame Park, St Marys.

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

Is James Beattie realistic? Andy Keogh would make a really good signing, such a good ball player.

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

We won promotion, but there is that tinge of disappointment because of the lack of consistency. I wonder if we won because of having better players and not a better team?

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

Expectations will always be top 6, even in the Premier league. We have the backing to do well and the club is geared to being succesful. I honestly believe promotion isnt beyond us.

Q - Where do you sit at the City Ground?

BC Stand.

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

My other half...she has more chance of being a celebrity than me banging one haha.

Thanks to David for answering the questions. If you would like to take part in the Fan Interviews, send an email to forest@vitalfootball.co.uk for a list of the questions.
