Vital Forest Fan Interview. Part 6
Q - How long have you been following Forest and what got you started?
I've been following Nottingham Forest since 1993, my whole family mother and fathers side going back to the beginning of time are die hard Sheff wed fans, i have always been an awkward little sod since i can remember and used to go to Hillsborough every week but followed Crystal Palace as the only player I could name when i was 4/5 was a certain Ian Wright so I supported Ian Wright not Palace themselves, when he left i was gutted and asked my brother who else was a good player he said a certain Stan Collymore was going to be awesome and by the time he moved to Forest in 1993 my fate as a tricky was sealed forever.
Q - What is your most memorable moment as a Forest fan? Good or Bad.
The 1994/95 season when we smashed Sheff Wed 7-1 it doesn't get better than having one over your entire family

Q - What is would you say is the best goal you have seen Forest score?
Andrew Reid v West Ham when he picked the ball in our 18yrd box took on everyone twice before smashing a shot from almost the halfway line past the then England number 1 David James, unbelievable.
Q - Best away ground visited?
With Forest Old Trafford, without Forest Camp Nou, Barcelona.
6 - What are your thoughts on the proposed new stadium?
Doughty is going to pocket a nice £250m for himself, if the stadium looks anything like Liverpools new design I'll be happy as Larry, but the City Ground was one of the last English Grounds with character so its a shame.
Q- Are you pleased with the new signings made so far and is there any other player you would have liked to have seen us sign (realistically)?.
Colin has done awesome in the transfer window, and you don't get me praising managers that much however if he makes us more attack minded and passing fluently this could be the season. Neil Danns I've wanted him here for ages, he was seconds away from joining in January but still dont want to come. Billy Sharp would be nice £2m come on Nigel cough up
Q - What are your thoughts on how last season ended and how did it compare to your expectations ?
Bottled it as i predicted once we threw it away in January, but was heartbreaking considering we made a comeback towards the end, but it should never have gotten into that state, i was too busy mourning over the pending departure of Kris Commons, thank god he's here for another season at least!
Q -Despite the new signings, are there any areas in the side you think need adding to?
One more striker. who will score 20+ goals per season
Q - Where do you sit at the City Ground?
