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.
