How long have you supported Nottingham Forest?
What’s your favourite moment as a Forest fan. Season, game or anything other occasion.
77-78 season. We won the first division having been promoted the year before from the 2nd division.
Tell us about a player that you were proud to have on the back of a shirt, if you didn’t is there one you wished you would have.
John Robertson - absolute genius and our finest ever player.
What’s your most memorable match playing Leeds?
elland road 96 - it was the first ever away match I brought my 2 sons to and forest won 3-1. David weatherall had got a great header for the first goal for leeds
Are you happy with your dealings in this summer’s transfer market?
Yes we smashed our transfer record to sign carvalho from benfica and signed 15 or 16 players.
What’s your realistic aim for the season?
I would be hopeful of 6th place. Anything less and karanka will be chopped in my opinion.
Who in your mind is going to be promoted this season?
West brom, Leeds and Boro.
Can you name your three for relegation this year?
Rotherham Preston and Hull.
Who’s your danger man?
Joe lolley . Likes to run at players . He is in great form at the moment
Can you tell us about a rising star in the youth ranks?
Arvin Appiah is our latest rising star he scored for England u18 against Sweden last Thursday he is tipped for greatness
Prediction and scorers for the game?
I will go for 2-2 draw. We are a typical karanka side hard to beat. Only lost 1 game this season so far.
Best of luck to Leeds. Two big clubs who have suffered for far too long now.
We’d like to thank Tony for taking the time to answer our questions and wish him the best of luck for the season.
