Level of Interest: Season Ticket Holder

How has pre-season gone for you?

Very well, We have made some good signings noticeably Paul Anderson from Liverpool as a bargain and all we need now is a Left back and a CB and we have a good but young squad.

Are you pleased with the signings your club has made?

Very pleased but would like a LB and a CB to make it complete.

What realistically are you aiming for this season?

I would like a stable mid table finish. Some idiotic Forest fans would say play offs but I am not idiotic.

Which player has past his sell by date?

Our average age is well below 25 so none.

Have you got the right manager in charge?

Yes I believe we have, He has got the players in and we are playing good football.

What advice would you give him?

I would not give him any advice, he is doing a good job so far. I am not a manager and not an armchair one either!

Who do you see as your key player?

Robbie Earnshaw and Chris Cohen, I see as the main players for our team next season. Although, Lee Camp in goal may play a big part.

Who would you most like to beat this season?

Derby! No one cares about Fester

Where will you finish?

Mid Table hopefully. If we get higher then so be it.

How do you rate Barnsley's chances next season and where do you think they will finish?

A lot of Barnsley fan's think that they will get relegated. I think that they will be safe. It all depends on how well they gel as a team and if they get off to a stable start.
