Vital Forest Fan Interview: Part 11.

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

Since 1978, when a distant Uncle from Arnold came to visit with the gift of Junior Reds membership. I still have the little red card and a silk scarf. My first live game was 1983 v Man City. Went with my dad and best friend who still is a City fan. It was 3-0 to the reds with Wallace and Birtles doing the damage. Unforgettable day - we are still best friends though.

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

Best memory was going to Munich 96. We just had a fantastic day out and when Steve Chettle bagged it was mayhem. Worst day was without doubt Hillsborough - enough said.

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


1.Shilton

2.Laws

3.Pearce

4.Walker

5.Burns

6.Stone

7.Keane

8.Webb

9.PVH

10.SVC

11.Robertson

Jesus - this lot would walk the champions league!!!

Best all time player/man Mr S Pearce. The guy is a living god and a credit to us and himself.


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

Pearce freekick FA Cup Final 1991.

Q - Best away ground visited?

I always enjoyed Highbury. I can`t imagine the Emirates is the same. I have no time for modern bowls.

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

I just don`t think we need to have some modern bowl like everyone else. The main stand should be rebuilt with something big enough to accommodate us and the events the club thinks it can attract. There is enough space and would be financially easier. Also you cant beat The CG for match with plenty of bars. Most new grounds are in the middle of nowhere.

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

Strangely, I don`t have a real opinion but I do trust CC as his record so far is excellent. We will need some experience like Carsley that went to Blues.

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

After Bristol Rovers, I truly thought we had blown it and another season of misery awaited as there was no way we would get through the playoffs. By the time the last game came around I just knew all week that we would do it and Donny would blow it. Great day and at last the tide feels like it is turning. We must make the most of this opportunity.

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

A strong top ten finish is what I expect. Anything above that is through shrewd signings and some luck. There is a big jump to make but I think we can do it with keeping our usual tight defense and keeping Tyson 1.with the club and 2. Fit.

Q - Where do you sit at the City Ground?

Brian Clough Lower since 1992, previously A block.

Q - Name the celebrity you would most like to date?

Does Jessie from I`d do anything count as a celebrity. If not then Eva Longoria.
