The Vital Forest Fan Interview: Johnny Kipper

The Vital Forest Fan Interview: Johnny Kipper

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

1979 Forest 2 v Middlesbrough 2

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

Good - All the Wembley trips 1988 -1993, but an away game at St James Park in the FA Cup lives strong in the memory, coming from 2-0 down and drawing 2-2 with goals from Clough and Pearce to take them back to the CG for a replay. Worst - Hillsborough and Megson becoming manager.

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

1.P.Shilton

.V.Anderson

.S.Pearce

.D.Walker

.C.Foster

.S.Stone

.M.O'Neill

.N.Webb

.D.Riley

0.S.Collymore

1.J.Robertson


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

Johnny Metgod v West Ham.

Q - Best and worst away ground visited?

Best Liberty Stadium. Worst Millmoor.

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

Pleased that Reid is back, a couple of shiny new forwards would do me.

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

I used to prefer standing, but quite happy seated now days. There should be standing areas.

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

Play offs were about right, I think the team was tinkered with too much for away games.

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

With Earnie gone, not as confident as I was, hopefully the play offs again.

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

I think he should have been given another season and should have been backed.

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

Massive surprise and I'm pleased he's come here, I just hope he can attract one or two quality signings.

Q- Acquisitions Panel. Good thing or bad?

Can't say I've been impressed, get rid.

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

Trent End Lower - where the action is!

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

Margaret Thatcher.
