The Vital Forest Fan Interview: Ian Morris

The Vital Forest Fan Interview: Ian Morris

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

Since 1990 first game was in 1994 against Southampton, we won 3-0 with Pearce and Stan the man scoring.

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

Good:
Beating Man Utd 2-1
The UEFA Cup run in 1995, I thought it was over at the end of the first game.
Thumping Middlesborough 4-0 on the way to promotion when they were second
When Marlon Harewood got so excited about scoring against West Brom on the opening day of the season he floored the linesman.

Bad:
All the relegations
The managers - Megson was the worst.
Everytime we play Walsall.


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

Crossley

Gunter (Have we had a good right back in recent years?)
Dawson
Cooper
Pearce

Woan
Jenas
Reid
Stone

Collymore (such a wasted talent)
Van Hooijdonk (sad to say)

All time favourite...Mark Crossley.



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

Marlon Harewoods turn of pace against Palace at the City Ground, not a great goal, but...

Q - Best and worst away ground visited?

Upton Park, Richoh Arena - good ground but it feels like a shopping centre when you enter - not how a stadium should be!

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

Not interested - we would never fill a dull lifeless bowl and the atmosphere would never match that of the Upper Trent.

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

Gunter, Camp, Blackstock, Osbourne, Danny Welbeck, George Boyd.

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

Bad, I love standing and would stand out of choice.

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

7 points of safety - ha what were we worried about (nervous laugh) I thought we would be mid table so was disapointed with our position at Christmas, Scruff did good though!

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

I would be happy with a season of consolidation. Since I have followed Forest we have either been scrapping relegation, or aiming for promotion. I would be happy for a season with no stressful ends!

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

14th.

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

The guy done good. I don't care about his scum past.

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

Upper Trent T1.

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

Audrina Partridge (The Hills - look her up) Its a proper woman program but the wife loves it so how can I say no!

Thanks once again to Ian for taking the time to answer the questions. If you would like to take part in the Fan Interviews, then send your answers to forest@vitalfootball.co.uk. You can find a list of the Q's HERE. Next up...it's Mark Ramage.
