'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Vital Forest Fan Interview: Part 7

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

My first game was about 31 years ago when I was a shy little 3 year old - how things change ! My uncle took me to see Bournemouth versus Forest at the old Dean Court. Can't remember the score, the game or anything about the night apart from being wrapped in a blanket and told that we were watching a very special team led by a very special man. Magic to a 3 year old and it's stuck with me to this day.

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

Bad - when Ole Gunner Solskjaer tore us apart when I was at school in our biggest loss. Never had so many people jeering and sniping at me.

Good - Stuart Pearce's last game at the City Ground. Amazing player, Great day


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

PVH, Lee, Stone, Crossley, Psycho (of course), Francis, Cooper, Roy, Keane, Bennett is coming on very strong and McLeary is a very exciting player - especially if he keeps improving.

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

PVH free kick from a mile out - can't remember the opposition but it was on the title credits for Match of the Day for the entire season.

Q - Best away ground visited?

Watched B'mth win the play offs at the Millenium stadium with pretty much everyone I know and their families. Sleepy little B'mth took 35k to Wales- that was special. Club sides it would have to be the Nou Camp.

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

Football has gone money crazy. Character has been removed in favour of American style velodromes. I hate all the new stadiums but it's a necessity to stay at the top of the game. If it means we are competing at the top level then it can only be a good thing, I just hope it's individual enough to inspire emotions.

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

Wade Elliott from Burnley, he's a local B'mth lad with a lot of skill. Kevin Philips/Soares/McLeod would be good, anyone to raise the pulse rate and put us back on the football map.

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

Sneaking up while everyone else wasn't looking was great. I think we should have and could have been chasing Swansea all the way but negative tactics and bizarre decisions all season nearly cost us. Massive, massive relief at finally getting out of jailhouse League 1

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

I fully expect us to be mid table but it all depends on what signings we make and how quickly we adjust to CCC speed and quality. We should use Bristol City as a benchmark - but maybe go one better?!!!

Q - Where do you sit at the City Ground?

All over the place, wherever there are free seats. Brian Clough Stand has seen my ugly mug more than most others.

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

Tia Carrera, Liv Tyler, Angelina Jolie would be dirtier than a bag of coal......
