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

The Vital Forest Fan Interview: Dave Bassett

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

Since 1993. My First game was Sheffield United and we got relegated.

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

Good- Promotion to the Premiership when Bart Williams scored late on.

Bad- In the away end at Bramall Lane watching Forest capitulate in the playoff semi!

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

Crossley, Louis Jean, Pearce, Cooper, Dawson, Stone, Bohinen, Reid, Van Hooijdonk, Collymore, Roy.

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

Majewski vs West Brom (away).

Q - Best and worst away ground visited?

To watch forest : Best- West Ham Worst- Rotherham.

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

Simon Cox off West Brom, we need a quick striker!

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

Bad- should be a mix! And beer in the stands like in Germany.

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

Disappointing- Should never of sacked BD, expected more from SM, gutted about ND and not convinced with SC.

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

11th- I believe we will have a better start but I will be shocked if we get anywhere near those playoff spots.

Q- With the introduction of Financial Fair Play coming soon, do you think NFFC should spend their way to promotion, or adopt a more frugal approach in trying to achieve it?

I`d have a major overhaul. Get rid of the useless/average players and start from scratch and invest in younger lower league players who will graft for the shirt/opportunity to play in the top flight unlike Mr Miller on his 17k a week! The fans would accept this too!

Q - Name a former Forest player you were most disappointed to see sign for another club?

Kris Commons is a Judas!

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

Stability Manager! He stabilises clubs, that`s all he does!

Q - New stadium, or renovate the City Ground?

Ideally renovate, but if we get in the Premiership and stay there for 10 years like Bolton did, then we should consider a new stadium.

Q - If you could give one piece of advice to the eventual new owners of NFFC, what would it be?

Talk to the fans! No-one at Forest talks! And run the club as a BUSINESS! Which means don`t let your assets leave for nothing!

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

A Block.

Q - Name the celebrity you would most like to meet

Heidi Klum!
