'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Vital Forest Fan Interview: Skinner_reds

Q - How long have you been following Forest and what was your first game?
1993. Wolves home 0-0.

Q - What are your most memorable moments as a Forest fan? Good and Bad.
Good - Promotion 93/94,97/98 and the uefa cup days under Frank Clark. Promotion from League 1 was pretty decent as well.

Bad - That day at Loftus Road when we were relegated to the 3rd tier. And so many other days home and away both that season and the following league 1 days.
Relegation from the prem.

Q - Since you have been following Forest, what would your best starting eleven be? And who is your all time favourite player?
Crossley, Lyttle, Cooper, Dawson, Pearce, Stone, Bohinen, Bart-Williams, Woan, Stan, PVH.
Favourite all time - Stan. The man guilty of getting me addicted to the reds.

Q - In your opinion, what is the best goal you have seen Forest score?
Overlooked because of Maj's stunner but Cohen's goal at the Hawthorns on that snowy night was brilliant. Unbelievable football in the build up. Also see Psycho and Bohinen's at Sheff Wed away in the 7-1 mauling.

Q - Best and worst away ground visited?
Elland Road is always good fun but my favourite was Highbury. Proper ground with the stone steps from the street into the ground.

Worst - Ninian Park, Millmoor, Saltergate, Kenilworth Road.

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

Q - All seater stadia. Good thing, or a bad thing?
Can't remember a time without all seater really so cant judge. The terraces at London Road Peterborough were a good laugh a couple of years back but it was very very dated and you can see why all seater is considered the only way in the modern world.

Q - What are your thoughts on how Forest did last season and how did it compare to your expectations?
Pretty much as I expected. Although we could have done better given where we were in December/January.

Q - What are your expectations for next season in the Championship/Where will we finish?
Impossible to say given the state of our squad right now.

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

Q - What's your opinion on the appointment of Steve McClaren and will he bring success to the club?
No comment. Success depends on the backing he receives and I have massive doubts as to whether much has changed.

Q - Acquisitions Panel. Good thing or bad?
Could be improved but a good idea in theory.

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

Q - Name the celebrity whose back doors you'd most like to smash
Frankie Sandford/Mila Kunis (sorry RipleyRich)
