The Vital Forest Fan Interview: BaldertonRed
Q - How long have you been following Forest and what was your first game?
For as long as I can remember, my first game was when when I was about 10. It was a League Cup tie against Everton and we won 1 - 0 if I remember rightly.
Q - Since you have been following Forest, what would your best eleven be? And who is your all time favourite player?
Sutton, Laws, Pearce, Walker, Chettle, Webb, Clough, Hodge, Woan, Collymore, Roy. Favourite player is Stuart Pearce by a country mile. Effort, Commitment and passion, it was obvious he gave his all for the club.
Q - In your opinion, what is the best goal you have seen Forest score?
The counter attacking goal in the League Cup Final v Luton by Neil Webb. It took all of 5 seconds to go from one end to the other. It wasn't the most spectacular goal ever seen, but was a great example of the counter attack and I knew that the Cup was ours after this went in!
Q - Best and worst away ground visited?
Always enjoy St James's Park, great atmosphere. Grimsby Town is not great though.
Q - What are your thoughts on the proposed new stadium?
No, No, No I'm afraid. We won't fill it, it will cost too much, and besides, I am happy where I am thank you very much!
Q- Which player(s) would you like to see us sign this summer(realistically)?
Any decent Left Back, and a quality Midfielder, but we all know this!
Q - All seater stadia. Good thing, or a bad thing?
Obviously, we all remember Hillsborough and I'm thankful my Dad wouldn't let me go to the game, it was difficult to see the TV pictures, so, all seater stadia is a good thing from a safety aspect, however, I do enjoy the terraces and made sure I got to Peterborough away this year. I'd love to see a section set aside for those that like to stand, but it's never going to happen.
Q - What are your thoughts on how Forest did last season and how did it compare to your expectations?
Let's be honest, we exceeded all expectations and I would have been happy with a top 10 finish before a ball was kicked, but having come so close, it's hard not to feel disappointed.
Q - What are your expectations for next season in the Championship?
Providing we strengthen, I expect a top 6 finish again, if we don't we will do a Middlesbrough, and have a pretty dull season with loads of empty seats on matchdays.
Q - What League position will Forest occupy at the end of the 2010/11 season?
A pessimistic 5th or 6th.....until we make a couple of signings!
Q - What's your opinion of Billy Davies and what he's done at NFFC, since his arrival?
Absolutely remarkeable, the guy has passion and is trying to do the right thing. I hope he stays with us for a good few years yet. Best manager we have had in a long time.
Q- Acquisitions Panel. Good thing or bad?
Well, what good have they done for us? Constantly getting beaten to it by other clubs or, worse still, failing to strengthen. Get rid IMO.
Q - Where do you sit/stand at the City Ground?
Normally in A Block Main Stand, when work commitments don't stop me.
Q - Name the celebrity you would most like to bang.
Easiest question this, it has to be either Natalie Sawyer or Millie Clode from Sky Sports News. Simples.
