Name: Jamie Gordon
Current home town:  Leicester
Birthplace: Southampton
How long have you supported your team? 32 years
Overview of your club:

Great club been through a rocky few years on and off the field.  Now turned corner and back on track.
Favourite thing about your home ground: Atmosphere when full   

Favourite match played by your team & why: Beating Man United some years ago when they changed kit at half time saying they could not see one another.
Favourite player of all time who played for your club: Matt Le Tissier… 
About our forthcoming match against you:

Two good attacking teams. Hopefully this is the start of another good run at St Mary’s for the saints. Bit of revenge for loosing at Walkers (King Power) when your keeper played a blinder.

A bit about you:

Name: Andrew Tongue

Current home town: Loughborough

Birthplace: Loughborough

How long have you supported your team? 18 Years


Overview of your club:

Favourite thing about your home ground: It’s not a generic concrete and plastic bowl, like the characterless grounds such as St Mary’s, The Sh**p Dip (Pride Park) & the KP Nuts Stadium

Favourite match played by your team & why: Forest 5-2 Direby, 29/12/10. For obvious reasons! Any win against our main local rivals will always put a smile on my face, but especially hammering D*rby at home. They were completely outplayed on the night and we fully deserved 5 goals, even though it should’ve been more!

Favourite player of all time who played for your club: Only one answer for any Forest fan who has had witnessed this man play – Stuart Pearce….
