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

Vital Forest Fan Interview. Part 11

Q - How long have you been following Forest and what got you started?

Since 1984, my dad is a forest supporter and he took me to my first game on my birthday 21st Jan we beat Norwich 3-0.

Q - What is your most memorable moment as a Forest fan? Good or Bad.

Meeting Brian Clough and Stuart Pearce was pretty special for me. Because I used to live down south and now abroad I don`t get to go to that many games so everytime I go to a game is an awesome feeling. Doesn`t matter how many times I go I never get over the excitement of the pre-match pint (the buzz in the pub), the awe of sitting in a huge stadium, the cheer when a goal is scored, and the tension when holding onto a narrow lead…brilliant nothing beats it in the world!

Q - Since you have been following Forest what would your Best Eleven be? And who is your all time favourite player?
Best XI

Gk - Crossley or Beasant, I cannot decide. To be honest we never had an outstanding keeper in the whole time I have been watching Forest, they were always just above average.



RB - Gary Charles, although I agree with basford on MLJ



LB - Pearce - No contest



CB - Des Walker



CB - Michael Dawson, closely piping Colin Cooper and Steve Chettle



RM - Steve Stone



LM - Bryan Roy, edging out Ian Woan



CM - Neil Webb



CM - Lars Bohinen



CF - Nigel Clough



CF - Stanley Collymore



My favourite all time player is Pearce, although the best player I seen was Collymore.


Q- What is would you say is the best goal you have seen Forest score?

Too many goals to remember, Metgods from the half way line was good, however I was a bit young to appreciate it. Collymore scored some beauties. David Johnson`s second goal against Ipswich in the Paul hart playoff year won me 400 quid so I like that one!

Q - Best away ground visited?

Old Trafford, although Ibrox is pretty nice as well (went non-forest).

Q - What are your thoughts on the proposed new stadium?

Can only be a good thing and help us compete.

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)?.

Yes (although there are a few injuries), we needed the board and management to respond to the disaster of last year and so far they have.

A good right back and striker.


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

Luckily I am based half way across the world so I have missed the last 2 seasons of complete dross. I feel for all those who were at the Yeovil match. There is a delay on the TV here so the match was on TV here 2 days after it was played in the UK, I didn`t bother to watch it.

I have given up with expectations, I don`t get disappointed then.


Q -Despite the new signings, are there any areas in the side you think need adding to?

Right back, Striker and Goalkeeper have a nice balanced squad then. I thought we should have kept Curtis.

Q - Where do you sit at the City Ground?

Where ever there is a ticket available when I get to a game. I used to sit in the Trent end.
