Q - How long have you been following Forest and what was your first game?
My first season as a season ticket holder was the 97-98 season, but before that it was my mum and dad taking me down to some games. All I remember is standing in Trent End. No idea who against, but I didn't see much anyway.
Q - What are your most memorable moments as a Forest fan? Good and Bad.
Getting promotion in 98 back to the Premier League and bad would have to be losing in the play offs against Blackpool. I really thought we had a chance.
Q - Since you have been following Forest, what would your best starting eleven be? And who is your all time favourite player?
Crossley, Gunter, Cooper, Chettle, Pearce, Stone, Keane, Cohen, Woan, Collymore, Van Hooijdonk. Fav player would have to be Crossley.
Q - In your opinion, what is the best goal you have seen Forest score?
Van hooijdonk vs Huddersfield at home.
Q - Best and worst away ground visited?
Worst ground would have to be Bradford. Best would be Reading.
Q- Which player(s) would you like to see us sign this summer (realistically)?
Adlene Guedioura. He changed our season.
Q - All seater stadia. Good thing, or a bad thing?
Depends how old you are. If you was like me when I was younger, I didn't see a bloody thing but a better atmosphere standing up so bad thing.
Q - What are your thoughts on how Forest did last season and how did it compare to your expectations?
Where do we start. It went from bad to worse getting rid of Billy and bringing in Steve McClaren was a big mistake. We were lucky to stay up. I did think that we would finish in play offs again.
Q - What are your expectations for next season in the Championship/Where will we finish?
If we get new owners in and bring in a few good players, then we can give it a good go, but the way things are looking now I think we will struggle again.
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?
Just look at Leicester - so trying to buy the league doesn't work. Bring in a few good players and I think we could challenge around top 4.
Q - Name a former Forest player you were most disappointed to see sign for another club?
At the time Kevin Campbell.
Q - What's your opinion on Steve Cotterill and will he bring success to the club?
The players he brought in towards the end of the Season saved us and with a little bit of luck from Portsmouth. But he isn't the man for me. Not enough passion.
Q - New stadium, or renovate the City Ground?
I love the City Ground. It's just the Main Stand that lets it down.
Q - If you could give one piece of advice to the eventual new owners of NFFC, what would it be?
Hurry up and lets have something to smile about next season.
Q - Where do you sit/stand at the City Ground?
Trent End upper.
Q - Name the celebrity you would most like to meet.
