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?












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.
