Jeremy Clarkson in praise of Forest fans..

I already made mention of the Top Gear presenters appearing on the pitch at half time at the Riverside Stadium yesterday, but it’s perhaps worth dwelling on for a moment – the full story is on the Middlesbrough website, but my favourite bit was naturally this quote from Clarkson himself:

The noise was incredible, while being slagged off for my size by 3,000 fans was amazing, so I thank the Forest fans too for that!”

It would appear that they were filming the stunt and presumably the exhibition they held at the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art – and it is due to be broadcast on 20th December 2009.  Hopefully the stadium appearance will make an appearance, and the barrage of banter from the Reds fans, be sure to tune in!

Perhaps we should send them some Forest memorabilia!

  6. […] – aside from the obvious pleasure in abusing Jeremy Clarkson, but perhaps the highlight of the month was a City Ground dismantling of Doncaster Rovers, our […]
