The Vital Forest Fan Interview: Seenowthenyoungman

Q - How long have you been following Forest and do you remember your first game?

A - Since 1975. My first game was in March 1976 away at Hereford United. Terry Curran scored a last minute goal to earn Forest a 1-0 victory. I went ballistic in the Hereford end.

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

A - My best memory 'live` is Forest winning the Championship in 1997/8. My worst memory has to be watching Forest implode at home against Yeovil in the League 1 play-off semi final. I watched in horror as two fans had a fight at the end of the match in the Main Stand. Obviously my all time favourite memory was Forest winning the European Cups.

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

A - Shilton, Anderson, Walker, Cooper, Pearce, McGovern, Lansbury, Bohinen, Reid, Van Hooijdonk, Roy.

Q - What is your best and worst moment of the 2012/13 season?

A -Best moment was being so proud of our fans when we clapped the Leicester players off the pitch in the final game. How many clubs fans would do that? Worst moment was when Steve McLaren was appointed, closely followed by Alex McLeish.

Q - In your opinion, how have the new owners performed since taking over the club last July?

A - Overall they`ve done well. Some mistakes have been made (e.g. Boydgate) but they have restored my faith that Forest are finally on an upward curve and will return to the PL in the next few years (hopefully next year!)

Q - Best and worst away ground visited?

A - Best ground is probably the Madejski Stadium (don`t get to many away games). Worst ground has to be The Ricoh (atmosphere was pants, money exchange system, over-priced food\drink).

Q - Who is your Nottingham Forest player of the season?

A - Adlene Guediora (pure class).

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

A - Craig Dawson.

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

A - Good thing. I never want to see the horror of Hillsborough again. I do think that there should be standing areas re-introduced for those who want to stand though.

Q - What are your thoughts on how the team performed last season and how did it compare with your expectations?

A - We did better than I expected to be honest. I thought we`d finish mid-table until the wee magician came back to complete his 'unfinished business`. Billy will bring us PL football given time.

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

A - Top 2 if we complete the rebuilding work Billy has planned.

Q- Much has been said about the wealth of our new owners. Do you think they will spend their way to promotion, or adopt a more frugal approach in trying to achieve it?

A - I think they will spend money when necessary but they are wise to pick up players on free transfers when possible. Watch spending escalate when we get into the PL though (lift-off!).

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

A - Stan Collymore signing for Liverpool.

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

A - Yes, no doubt in my mind at all, provided he is given time.

Q - In your opinion, was it the right or wrong decision to sack Sean O'Driscoll?

A - I liked SOD but he was completely out of his depth at Forest. It was the right decision but very poor timing by Fawaz.

Q - New stadium, or renovate the City Ground?

A - Renovate the City Ground. It`s where we belong and the atmosphere is fantastic. It still sends shivers down my spine when Mull of Kyntire is blasted out before the game.

Q - If you could put one question or make one request to Mr.Fawaz Al-Hasawi, what would it be?
A
- Will you give Billy Davies the funding and time to complete the job at Forest?

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

A - Main Stand (usually Block B). Great atmosphere!

Q - Name the celebrity you would most like to meet.

A - Jennifer Aniston (just love her to bits).
