Q - How long have you been following Forest and what was your first game?
The 2009-2010 Season will be my 30th as a season ticket holder. I first watched the Reds in about 1974. It was a night match I think against West Brom.
Q - What are your most memorable moments as a Forest fan? Good and Bad.
So many of both! Probably best was the 3-2 win away at Peterborough to clinch promotion back to the Prem. It was boys own stuff, 2.0 down in 10 minutes, Stanley Victor pulls one back before half time. Then late in the second half a Psycho header from a corner makes it 2.2 and we are effectively up and then Stanley lashes in a glorious winner minutes from the end. What a day.
Worst - HILLSBOROUGH!
Q - Since you have been following Forest, what would your best eleven be? And who is your all time favourite player?
All time favourite player is an easy one.................PSYCHO!
Best 11 is more difficult.
Shilton, Anderson, Walker, Burns, Pearce, Francis, Webb, Gemmill, Robertson, Collymore, Birtles.
Q - What would you say is the best goal you have seen Forest score?
Again, so many. The ones that stand out in the memory are Johnny Metgod`s free kick against West Ham, Collymores 2nd at Peterborough and the 2 European Cup Final goals.
Q - Best and worst away ground visited?
Best - Highbury........just a proper traditional football ground.
Worst - The old Wembley was shocking really for Englands No1 Stadium. But the actual worst stadium I`ve been to was Scarborough.
Q - What are your thoughts on the proposed new stadium?
I`m not sure its needed. A new Main Stand should give Forest an excellent Stadium for the immediate future.
Q- Which player(s) would you like to see us sign this summer(realistically)?
Camp, Blackstock, Gunter and Osbourne for starters. But I would love to see a really good midfield player such as Michael Tongue.
Q - All seater stadia. Good thing, or a bad thing?
Having been at Hillsborough I have to say good. Every effort has to be made to ensure that cannot happen again.
Q - What are your thoughts on how Forest did last season and how did it compare to your expectations?
I think that too many people got carried away after promotion. I was always happy to consolidate our position in the Championship but I didn`t expect it to be quite such a close call.
Q - What are your expectations for next season in the Championship?
I certainly expect a top half finish but hope that we will be pushing for the play offs.
Q - What League position will Forest occupy at the end of the 2009/10 season?
A bold prediction................6th!
Q - What's your opinion of Billy Davies and what he's done at NFFC, since arriving in January?
It`s no secret that I didn`t want Billy. I did believe he would keep us up but not playing football in the manner we did and for that I believe he has done a fantastic job. I wasn`t impressed with his criticism of the players early on but since then he has been far more positive and the incident with Lewis has had a very positive effect. My final opinion is still out until he has had a full summer to mould his squad and the first 10 games or so will determine as to whether I need to admit I was wrong or not. But I am preparing my apology!!
Q - Where do you sit/stand at the City Ground?
Brian Clough Upper (Block M). I have sat there since the stand opened.
Q - Name the celebrity you would most like to bang.
As my children are members of the forum I reserve the right not to answer this question!!
