Vital Forest Fan Interview: T10red

Vital Forest Fan Interview: T10red

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

Apparently my first game was at home to Charlton when I was about 5 but don`t remember that one. First away game was at Liverpool, December 1991. We lost 2-0.

Q - What are your most memorable moments as a Forest fan? Good and Bad.

I once sat behind Cloughie at a reserve game. It was freezing cold and so he told me to jump up and down to keep warm. I did it of course, it was Cloughie after all!

In a playing sense the Zenith Data Systems Cup and League Cup finals of 92 were memorable big occasions. The Sheffield United play-off semi-final was simply soul-destroying and such a shame when we'd played with such style under Harty that year.

The recent Yeovil promotion game was pretty special given the fact I was resigned to another year in the doldrums just a couple of games earlier and Woking away in the LDV Vans Trophy Southern Section brought home how far we`d fallen. Especially when we lost!



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

Crossley, Louis-Jean, Pearce, Walker, Cooper, Woan, Stone, Reid, Clough, Roy, Collymore

Far too attacking to work as a real line up but stuff that!

Favourite player has to be Pearce. Most gifted is probably Stan the Man. It`s probably a cliché but he could`ve been great.....


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

Reid away at West Ham in a night game a few years back was awesome. I actually think Bennett`s belter on the final day against Yeovil is under-rated. Seemed to hit it with the outside of his boot and got us off to a fantastic start.

Q - Best and worst away ground visited?

Coventry`s new one doesn`t really feel like a football ground and the atmosphere was dire. Plus every time there was a corner you`re told it`s sponsored by someone or other on the big screens which is just awful. They`re not the only ones to suffer from identikit stadium syndrome though.

Palace is a nightmare to get to and isn`t great, the view when I went to Watford was poor (but it was standing then), Millwall is every bit as unwelcoming and nasty as i`d feared, Cheltenham`s was a bit 'non-league` but I guess that`s fair enough.

The Millennium Stadium was impressive, I quite like Spurs, used to like Highbury too and enjoyed three decent visits to Portman Road over the years even though that`s not the greatest of grounds!


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

Don`t bother. It`ll be a drain on resources and the current one is fine. Build up the Main Stand and keep our character rather than end up stuck with some half-empty white elephant out by the motorway. I`d rather lose out on the World Cup than lose our identity....

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

Blackstock, Gunter and McSheffrey would be nice. Plus a younger, more mobile version of Breckin to partner Wes - not sure who though.

Q - All seater stadia. Good thing, or a bad thing?

Bit of both. I`m a short so-and-so so standing doesn`t give me the best of views but all-seaters can be dull and soulless.

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

I had hoped for mid-table but given the first half we had survival has to be seen as a success.

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

Tougher to beat, able to cause a threat in most games, mid table

Q - What League position will Forest occupy at the end of the 2009/10 season?

10th-15th

Q - What's your opinion of Billy Davies and what he's done at NFFC, since arriving in January?

I think he has what it takes to start to build a strong ChampioVery impressed - loan signings were excellent and nship side. Plus he doesn`t like Derby so that`ll do for me

Q - Where do you sit/stand at the City Ground?

Upper Trent these days. Have had season tickets in the Bridgford (when it was standing) and Brian Clough (Upper and lower) and lower Trent so bit of a 'ground nomad`.....

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

If pushed i`d say Georgie Thompson
