The Vital Forest Fan Interview: Oldjom

The Vital Forest Fan Interview: Oldjom

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

Since 1964. Makes me a veteran - they constantly surprise me just when you think they can`t possibly surprise you anymore they go and do something !! Usually daft.

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

Good has to be away in Cologne when everyone, the press, the fans and most of all the Germans who were very polite welcoming and patronising, thought we were out of the European cup. Cloughie told 'em they were mad and we would do them, he was right and I can still see Bowyer's header hitting the net and can not describe our Joy. The away Fans that night were amazing and have been ever since, the atmosphere amongst us has for me and those who were there never been bettered and fair Play to the Germans though stunned congratulated us and shared a Beer!! Bad bloody Yeovil what in gawds name were we fannying around at? As for CC and those Subs give me strength!

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

Difficult but Shilton, Pearce, K Burns, Hennessy Anderson, Robbo, H Newton, Gemmill, Keane SVC and Ian Storey-Moore Can`t choose between Psycho or ISM as all time favourite and wont so, sod you.

Q - In your opinion, what is the best goal you have seen Forest score?

ISM against Everton in the qtr final of the FA cup, you had to be there, we thought it would never go in for sheer drama my best all time goal, the Trent end went nuts as did the Players never seen so many scarves literally hurled into the air.

Q - Best and worst away ground visited?

Best Emirates worst The Den shit hole shit Fans and a shit Club.

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

Hahaha give over.

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

To begin with a good thing but now I feel we really should think seriously about a standing area for those that have never experienced it. The atmosphere is incomparable and it gets the Fans together and chanting, Some Clubs should get together and petition for a relaxing of the Law.

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

At one time I did not expect to finish in the last six. I think we weakened from the previous season so in many ways we did fine, but if we end up in the Pray offs ever again, I shall cry. For some reason we embarrass ourselves, the 2nd half against the Swans was amazing but too little too late.

Q - What are your expectations for next season in the Championship/Where will we finish?

IF !! we have now got the Players I think we might, then 2nd. Maybe even Champions, if not top six.

Q- Was it right for the club to sack Billy Davies?

Yes should have done it earlier, he did a brilliant Job at first but would never compromise and always had to be proven right. We do owe him a vote of thanks, but it was way past his time to go. You simply can`t continually bleat about your Employers publicly, he has a lot to answer for as well.

Q - What's your opinion on the appointment of Steve McClaren and will he bring success to the club?

An amazing appointment and if he gets the backing he was no doubt promised and demanded before he formerly accepted, then we could have at last some real success and an amazing season About bloody time too.

Q- Acquisitions Panel. Good thing or bad?

AP on the whole is a good thing in principal depending on how it is actually put into practice if they and the Manager can work together rather than being antagonistic which has too often been the case with the previous Managers.

Managers can be irresponsible blinded by the need to sign the Player they target rather than pragmatic and understanding the need to stay within what is affordable


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

Main Stand.

Q - Name the celebrity whose back doors you'd most like to smash.

Helen Mirren!! Yes, well she is my vintage you young sprogs, so keep your opinions to yourselves. This is top tottie to us wrincklies and whoar!! Watch her in Caligula.
