The Vital Forest Fan Interview: Eviejake1
Q - How long have you been following Forest and what was your first game?
First game was Boxing Day 1977 V Everton in the Championship season and I sat at the side of the pitch because the terraces were packed solid - Like everybody else I was hooked forever !!
Q - What are your most memorable moments as a Forest fan? Good and Bad.
Most memorable for me was actually standing on the rain at Ashton Gate when we qualified for the League Cup final in 1988 - Though I lived through all the real glory years, this was my first experience of getting to a real Wembley final and being old enough to celebrate properly !! Bad was being relegated in 93 because it took a bit of the shine off the amazing job that Brian Clough did for my club ! (Though hearing 25,000 fans including the Sheff Utd singing "Brian Clough is a football genius" was a truly amazing experience)
Q - Since you have been following Forest, what would your best eleven be? And who is your all time favourite player?
Best Player Can only be one answer from somebody my age and that is Stuart Pearce (A absolute legend)
Q - In your opinion, what is the best goal you have seen Forest score?
Tommy Gaynor away at Huddersfield in the League Cup - He ran length of the pitch and smashed it in to top corner from 25 yards !
Q - Best and worst away ground visited?
Old Trafford because we always used to win there and The Manor Ground at Oxford - Shocking view !!
Q - What are your thoughts on the proposed new stadium?
Mixed - Looks great but I love the City Ground because of the great times. I also worry that we might not fill it as there is nothing worse than playing in a half full ground ! - Ask Middlesborough.
Q - Which player(s) would you like to see us sign this summer(realistically)?
Shorey, Hulse and Pratley
Q - All seater stadia. Good thing, or a bad thing?
Bad - A bit of terracing adds to the atmosphere (Had a great time at Peterborough this year - like the old days on the Trent End)
Q - What are your thoughts on how Forest did last season and how did it compare to your expectations?
Better than I thought, though I didn't think we would really struggle after the way we managed to survive the season before. We played some exceptional football but sadly just ran out of steam and peaked too early.
Q - What are your expectations for next season in the Championship?
Automatic if we get 3 quality signings and clear some of the dead wood out.
Q - What League position will Forest occupy at the end of the 2010/11 season?
Q - What's your opinion of Billy Davies and what he's done at NFFC, since his arrival?
He has done a fantastic job - Like everybody I wish he would keep his mouth shut a bit but he is what he is and he has turned this club back into a proper football club and team !
Q - Acquisitions Panel. Good thing or bad?
Not really bothered - I'm sure all clubs have one in some shape or form - ours just seems to get a lot of press for some reason !
Q - Where do you sit/stand at the City Ground?
Main Stand A Block.
Q - Name the celebrity you would most like to bang.
Patsy Kensit - just to nark Liam Gallagher.
