Vital Forest Fan Interview. Part 13

Vital Forest Fan Interview. Part 13

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

I have been following Forest for as long as i can remember one of my first memories is my dad getting me out of bed to watch forest highlights on bbc midweek (cant remember the shows name). It was the game with Jonny Metgods great free kick against West Ham.


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

The most memorable moment is Peterbrough away in the promotion season it was one of the first away games i went to. I remember blokes climbing floodlights and a great atmosphere and of course the 2 goals in the last ten minutes to seal promotion.

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

1. Crossley

2. Laws

3. Pearce

4. Cooper

5. Walker

6. Stone

7. Gaynor

8. Parker

9. Jenas

10. Collymore

11. Van Hoojidonk (before going awol)




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



5 - Best away ground visited?

Anfield been twice and both times we lost 4-2 i remember being 2-0 inside 15 minutes in one and still losing and the other was Frank Clarks last game in charge when Collymore fell over in front of the Forest fans with an open goal how i pmsl.

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

I will miss the City Ground but expansion of the ground is not really a great option, if they use fans input towards the new ground i will be happy plus it will show that we have ambition if we go ahead with the idea.

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)?

Im very pleased with the signings remember watching seeing wilson at County looked head and shoulders above others in that game. Lennon is a great signing will command respect from his team mates and opposition players. Cohen and Davies especially showed great potential in the play offs lets hope they can carry this off at a larger club with greater expectations. Lockwood always does good for me on Championship manager but i no little much about him.
Would like to see another striker added to the ranks like Easter he knows where the net is.


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

I was gutted after the Yeovil game just could not believe it, I remember sayin a few days before the game we will give the game away and go out it was tongue and cheek at the time but how i regret saying it.
At Christmas last season my expectations were really high being so far clear so losing in the play offs was a really disappointing time for me.


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

A striker and possibly a reserve keeper not sure about Roberts after pre season but is one to watch in the future.

10 - Where do you sit at the City Ground?


I sit in A block 3 rows from the back if we do move to the new ground hopefully there will be a replacement for the A block there so we can sing we 8 de**y when were asked to sit down
