Vital Forest Fan Interview: forestfaninvegas
Q - How long have you been following Forest and what was your first game?
Forest born and bred, I have been suffering the trials and tribulations at the City Ground for well over 30 years. First game 1974 around my birthday against Brizzle City cannot remember the score, dont think we won though.
Q - What are your most memorable moments as a Forest fan? Good and Bad.
Worst - without doubt the Hillsborough disaster. Not sure if words can say how bloody hopeless most Forest fans felt not being able to do anything to help. Best - Despite 2 european cups and the rest of the success, Luton town at home new year 1990 ish. Home to Luton, 1-0 down after 1 minute. 90th minute Des Walker gets lots in the pentalty area and blasts the ball into the roof of the net. Scenes of pandemonium all round. Brilliant. What makes it even better is that my best mate had just left the gound and missed it.
Q - Since you have been following Forest, what would your best eleven be? And who is your all time favourite player?
Shilton Clarke Walker Burns Pearce O,Neill Metgod McGovern (C)Robertson Francis Collymore All time favourite - John Robertson - GOD.
Q - What would you say is the best goal you have seen Forest score?
Nigel Clough back heal against Man City I think
Q - Best and worst away ground visited?
Arsenal - Highbury was a brilliant ground and every game was a good one irrespective of the result Colchester - The old ground was a disgrace and should have been knocked down 20 years ago.
Q - What are your thoughts on the proposed new stadium?
Good idea but lets be realistic, we are never going to get 50,000 Forest fans so why not go for a 35K ground that is unique and not like all the rest - Swansea, Sheep, Poxes, Donny - all the bloody same and I hate them all.
Q- Which player(s) would you like to see us sign this summer(realistically)?
Gunter on Loan, Blackstock and Lynch on perms. The huge center half from scotland whose name escapes me and I think we should go for Westwood because Camp is over rated.
Q - All seater stadia. Good thing, or a bad thing?
Good thing, too old to have some git peeing in my pocket again!
Q - What are your thoughts on how Forest did last season and how did it compare to your expectations?
I expected us to be safe before we were but I really did not expect anything more than survival.
Q - What are your expectations for next season in the Championship?
Mid table may be close to the play offs if we can keep a settled team - we are not good enough to push for promotion.
Q - What League position will Forest occupy at the end of the 2009/10 season?
I would like to say 9th but expect 14th.
Q - What's your opinion of Billy Davies and what he's done at NFFC, since arriving in January?
Not a big fan before he came, but he had brought a never say die attitude that we did not have under Colin. I am a convert, I like the bloke and think he will do well if he is given the support on an off the field.
Q - Where do you sit/stand at the City Ground?
Trent End Upper - T4. Brilliant seat and it is mine I tell ya, Mine!!!
Q - Name the celebrity you would most like to bang.
None - my mrs is reading this!!! But if I was free and Davina McCall was available - mmmm.
