The Vital Forest Fan Interview: Upyerhoop

The Vital Forest Fan Interview: Upyerhoop

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

Since Birth, I was in market square when they bought home the European Cup. Not that I can remember as I was only 18 months old.

First game was down Platt lane vs Keyworth United, I got to stand next to BC. Strangely Forest won 7-1

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

Best memory was the first game my old man took me too, cant remember the score, cant remember the game, just remember him being the most animated I have ever seen him. Worst memory was last season and some moron in A block starting on a 7 year old kid and all his mates joining in (obviously been watching Green Streets all morning morons.

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

Gk- Shilton

- Des Walker

- Stuart Pearce

- Gunter

- Burns




-Franz Carr


-Stan the man

Favorite player is Camp. Really think he will be one to watch, could be one of the greats and he always seems angry.

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

Maj and his impossibly angled goal against WBA. Or McGoo against Dipswich.

Q - Best and worst away ground visited?

City Ground, obviously.

Worst ground would be Swindon Town.

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

Moussi re-signed. Love him or hate him, on form he is unstoppable.

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

Good and Bad, we are adults and should be able to choose. Home Fans only though for safety.

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

I am chuffed to be honest, every Forest fan expects them to do badly, so a top 6 finish is great (as long as we beat Derby).

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

Automatic Promotion and I will settle for nothing less.

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

Right or wrong, we are only fans and can make no difference. I thought he was OK, but I trust the club to do what is right.

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

I think he will, if he wants to get back into English football he really has too.

Q- Acquisitions Panel. Good thing or bad?

Good, if you are buying tanks or planes. Bad if you are buying footballers.

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

A block, but that will change next season as the Mrs. is coming.

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

This won't go down too well with the group, But Anne Robinson. She can wink at me all day!
