Opposition View: ‘I have faith that Forest can stay up in the league…’

We caught up with Nottingham Forest fan Rudi Davies ahead of our Premier League clash

Forest spent £154 million in summer. Do you see that money’s worth on the pitch?

We are a class team with a rich history. I do have faith and believe these players can help to keep us up in the league. That’s all us fans want is to stay in the league.

Who’s been Forest’s best player so far this season?

Morgan Gibbs White. Only 22 years old and creates chances for us every game. I can see him finishing this season on a massive high.

Do you see Steve Cooper being the manager to keep on pushing Forest forwards?

I don’t think Steve Cooper will carry on managing us if we go down. If we do stay up, I think we could attract a higher quality manager based on our history but think we’d wait until it got stale under Cooper.

As for Dean Henderson, can you see him getting a call up to the England squad in the next few years?

Nick Pope should be England’s number 1 but I can see Deano getting a call up in a few years if his form continues which it most definitely will.

Do you think Jesse Lingard came to you for the money?

Jesse Lingard definitely came for the money in a sense as he was unwanted at United. He could have maybe gone to West Ham and played at a higher level. However, he doesn’t seem to have the same drive for us.

How satisfied are you with Jesse Lingard?

Not entirely satisfied with Jesse Lingard. He can be a lot better as he proved at West Ham just maybe Forest wasn’t the right club for him in the end. Given the number of signings we made, he’s probably been the most disappointing.

Forest got into the semi-final of the EFL cup. Were you surprised you   got that far?

Yes, very surprised but it’s class to be able to experience this from our first season back in the Premier League. This is where clubs of our size deserve to be and we have earned it.

2-1 to Forest
