Yes, Silenzi struggled but I loved his answer to this question in the Forest programme:

Favourite book: The Gulag Archipelago by Alexander Solzhenitsyn because it made me aware of the terrible sufferings of the Russian people.

And I won't have a word said against Big Jase. He scored eight goals as a substitute by November of the 1994/95 season before those cunts Baddiel and Skinner took the piss out of his hair in a dodgy manner. I passed him in the street once and he said "Allwight geezah" to me. A top bloke.

Better than any of the current England keepers.

What the hell, no one has mentioned Zidane ???

Before Messi came along, was the best player of the modern era (since Maradona retired) by a long shot.

Thierry Henry was also handy in his prime (better then Berkcamp at any rate for Arsenal)

Better stike rate than Bergkamp maybe, but certainly not more gifted. Having seen both many times I'd have to say Bergkamp was the more complete player.


Bergkamp was a magnificent player. I was (un)lucky to see him play against Forest on quite a few occasions. Utterly brilliant. And to think he nearly came to Forest as a replacement for Stanley Victor Collymore. Bryan Roy and Denis Bergkamp together in the Garibaldi red. The very idea. Drool.

Funnily enough, Ian "Wrighty" Wright came to play at Forest at the end of his career. He got sent off against Wolves for acting the twat.

Which reminds me that I was fortunate enough to see two years' worth of complete brilliance from Stanley Victor before he went and joined Bootle Rovers, or whatever they're called.


The Rt Rev Stanley Victor Collymore scoring at Old Trafford in Forest's 2-1 victory over Man Utd in December 1994. Simply superb.

Collymore should have had the world at his feet. But he blew it.


He didn't when he played for Forest Very Happy
