The Vital Forest Fan Interview: Willy Britnell

The Vital Forest Fan Interview: Willy Britnell

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

My first game was in '97 when we won promotion, my dad and my uncle carried Pieere van Hooijdonk on their shoulders.

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

My memorable memories are when we lost in the semi final to Sheff Utd. I felt every emotion possible that night. I was on Sky crying at the end of the game. My best memory is without a doubt winning promotion in 2008, it is the first one that i can really remember as i was only six when we won promotion to the Premier League.

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

Since i am only seventeen i have to do what i think and remember from what i have seen.
GK Gerrard
lb Pearce
cb Walker
cb Dawson
rb Louis-Jean
lm Reid
cm Scimeca
cm Bart-Williams
rm Jenas
cf Harewood
cf Johnson

My all time favourite has to be Marlon Harewood. i won a competition several yrs ago and i had a photo shoot with him and it was great, he was my favourite player at the time which made it more special for me.


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

Marlon Harewood V Crystal Palace 2003

Q - Best and worst away ground visited?

Best ground- Bradford city/Old trafford/White Hart Lane
Worst ground- Belle Vue, Doncaster.


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

Great Idea i have good memories of the City Ground and the older generation will have even greater memories from the Clough era, but we want the world cup to be in Nottingham and we would like to compete with sides like Newcastle etc so a new stadium would be a great idea.

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

Gary Mcsheffery
Lee Camp
Marlon Harewood.


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

Good thing, look at the Hillsborough disaster.

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

I was someone who got carried away with the previous season and thought play offs, but at the end we stayed up so it was a good season but not what i had in mind.

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

Top six.

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

5th.

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

I wanted Billy to come in a few months before, his record speaks volumes for itself as he likes to remind everyone. I think with him he can take us back to the Premier League.

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

Lower Trent End.

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

Megan Fox, she's gorgeous.
