Vital Forest Fan Interview. Part 12

Vital Forest Fan Interview. Part 12

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

My first game was in October 1983, I was 6 years old, and my mum, who had been an old East Stander in the 70's took me, we sat in the Executive Stand (now the Brian Clough Stand) Upper tier.

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

For me there are so many good and bad memories, obviously being where we are now is so painful but anything from the Cloughy days is normally associated with good memories. That and meeting Stuart Pearce (and his wife Liz) before Mick Walker's Testimonial 5 days before the '91 FA Cup Final, oh, and seeing Des score his only proper goal!

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

Best XI (4-4-2): Sutton, Laws, Pearce(c), Walker, Cooper, Hodge, Stone, Webb, Woan, Clough, Collymore. Subs: Crossley, Dawson, Keane, Sheringham, Metgod.
All-time favourite - some unknown number 3 we signed from Coventry in '85 as a makeweight in the Butterworth deal.



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

Bohinen's deft lob at Hillsborough in the 7-1 win v Sheffield Wednesday in 1995.

5 - Best away ground visited?

Crewe, strange choice I know but it's one of the few grounds where you can wear colours, drink in any of the pubs and not get hassle from away police, stewards and fans.

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

I'm all for it, I love the City Ground, it's my spirtual home, but it's looking worn and to be honest there isn't much more we can do with it due to it's location.

7- 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)?

I'm happy so far but we are lacking another striker, especially now we have more injuries than an average Saturday night in the QMC. I thought Andrew Cole was a little bit too much to ask but with the Lennon influence there may be a slight chance of getting someone like Hartson, even if only on loan.

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

Let's not go there, anyway me and Mrs Westyorksnffc were sunning ourselves in Turkey!

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

Striker, and back-up for right wing, right back and goalkeeper.

10 - Where do you sit at the City Ground?

T3 (Trent End Upper). Been in the Trent End since it was the old terracing.
