The Vital Forest Fan Interview: Bridgey

The Vital Forest Fan Interview: Bridgey

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

Living in rural Mid Wales back then, my earliest memory is seeing Forest on Jim'll Fix It Feb 78 singing 'We've got the Best Team.....' and I thought that'll do for me! First Forest game was Wimbledon in 87/88 and we lost 1-0 at home. My mucker Max, reminded me that Vinny Jones ran the show that day.

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

Got to be the Two European cups (3 more times and we get to keep it!). Can remember both games fondly, even though I was only 7 or 8.

Losing 8-1 to MU Feb 99. Gutted esp with my missus being a MU fan (no surprise there). Luckily I wasn`t at the game and to add insult to injury, I lost the bet with her and had to strip in a crowded bar in Cardiff and get the beers in; not a memorable day.


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

Shilton, Anderson, Psycho, Walker, Dawson, Keane, Robertson, Webb, Clough, Collymore and Van Hooijdonk.

Fav player. Stuart Pearce. John Robertson comes a very close second.


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

Johnny Metgod screamer v West Ham.

Q - Best and worst away ground visited?

I always enjoyed going to Goodison and Stamford Bridge. Bristol City is actually one of my favourite away games. Swansea. Built a good ground now, always good banter with the fans, best footballing team bar say top 6 in Premiership and Huw Jenkins has shown how a football club should be run both on and off the pitch.Worse, is obv.....sheep shite hole. And Swindon, because I always got soaked!

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

I did want Darren Pratley but that`s not gonna happen now. Has to be left back, Nicky Shorey but again doubtful so any decent left backs out there wanna job?! Guy Moussi as well please. And Earnie (Welsh Legend) play him everyweek and he'll get us goals.

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

Good, but Away end should mainly be standing.

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

Thought we would get 2nd to be honest. Konch leaving before playoffs left a big hole in shape of team, and Earnie should have come on earlier at The Liberty.

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

Right now mid table but if SMc can get the targets being mentioned, then a third successive PO campaign without a doubt.

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

I personally was gutted. He brought the club on significantly in his 2.5 yrs and despite his rants, he put us firmly back on the map for which I will always be grateful to him for.

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

As above, was gutted when it all unravelled. On reflection, SMc has got a point to prove to the English game thus this will work in our favour. Behind him all the way. PO success for sure (as said in above Q).

Q- Acquisitions Panel. Good thing or bad?

From the evidence to date, get rid and leave to The Manager.

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

Lower Trent, back row if I can.

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

Easy......Kate Moss (but dont tell the wife!).
