The Vital Forest Fan Interview: RedSmedDownUnder.

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

Since about 69. First game was home to Man City. We lost 0-1, and I think the recently departed Mike Doyle got the winner!!

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

Good:

Winning the League Title.

Signing Trevor Francis.

Two European Cup wins.

The League Cup triumphs.

Bad:

91 Cup Final. Didn`t talk to the Missus for 3 days I was that gutted. Plus it was May 18th, my 30th Birthday...what a present!!!!

Met Milford at a Bass function in Burton a year later, I told him I thought he was a prize tw*t!!!

League One years!

Passing of the Great Man...RIP Cloughie, you gave me memories many clubs fans can only dream of!!


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


Anderson

Burns

Walker

Pearce

Storey-Moore

Gemmill

Keane

Robertson

Francis

Birtles

Favourite player of all time, on the basis I was a keeper, Peter Shilton. Probably the best keeper I`ve seen with the possible exception of Gordon Banks!!


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

Too many to chose from to have a favourite. But memorable ones include: Metgod v West Ham, Metgod v Man Utd, Metgod v Villa, Collymore v Man Utd, Pearce v Spurs (91 CF), Francis v Malmo, Robbo v Hamburg, Raddi v WBA, Magoo v Ipswich, Ian Storey-Moore v Arsenal.

Q - Best and worst away ground visited.

Best: Old Trafford

Worst: Plough Lane


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

A decent Left Back...one can but hope!!

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

Mixed feelings. I still think a ticketed terrace area could work!!

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

Reasonable, considering where we were two years ago. Some initiative in January could have seen us up in my opinion.

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

Top 6

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

Not sure. There`s a lot of crap going on at the CG. Some of it Billy, some the Board. Nobody can deny he left us in a better position than when he arrived. The Board didn`t entirely back Billy, and they have failed to back others in the past, so maybe the same fate awaits Steve Mc. sooner or later. For me there are others at the club who should be given their Don`t Come Monday letters!!

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

He`s a proven club coach. Most Managers are doomed to fail for England, the media see to that. So I don`t hold that time against him. If the Board keep their own egos in check, and back him I`m sure he can deliver!!

Q- Acquisitions Panel. Good thing or bad?

Too feckin slow to catch a cold!! The fact we haven`t signed a left back in four years is a disgrace.

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

In front of my PC, or in bed listening to 5Live on the World Service. I might not be there physically but in spirit I`ll always be at the City Ground!!!

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

Strange question..depends what you mean by back doors!!! Sounds a wee bit huffy to me!!

For some reason, Shilton wont display in the best eleven selection. It's a mystery why it wont. Sorry Smed.
