1) How has your season been so far.

Surreal. Highs, lows, lowers. Beating Man Utd at Old Trafford AND at Ashburton Grove was spectacular, indeed I even ended up with a bloody nose after over exuberant celebrations, the finest moment at the Grove to date. Also beating Spurs (Twice), Liverpool and a few late late shows meant we’ve really been entertained this season.

It was evident for everyone to see that Wenger’s third great team was almost upon us, but three simple error’s put paid to that. A quick lapse in concentration from Senderos in the League Cup final saw Drogba power a header home (forget the offside goal, **** happens), a mistake from Wenger putting Senderos at rightback in the game at Blackbrun saw us exit the FA Cup, and then a silly foul against PSV cost us dear. Had we not made those daft mistakes then everyone would still be raving about Wenger’s young team (which the press couldn’t get enough of prior to the Carling Cup final)

I fully believe, no scratch that, I KNOW that if hadn’t had another ridiculous injury list this season we’d be still in with a shout of a couple of pieces of silverware.

2) Are you in transition or has the halo of Wenger slipped.

You’re kidding right? Wenger’s halo can never slip. Everyone has seen the players coming through our ranks, it just takes time and patience that’s all. We may see another season without trophies next season but that’s no reason to doubt the players we have now.

The team that went unbeaten only three years ago has been ripped apart, indeed of the usual starting line up only Lehmann, Toure, Gilberto & Henry remain, and Lehmann might not be here much longer (how I’ll miss his antics). Great teams don’t just materialise over night, they take a lot of hard work. There’s barely a player in our squad who any of the top teams wouldn’t take in a flash.

Team’s are not born with the divine right to be a big club and win trophies (are you listening you silly spuds?) you have to earn that right (unless you can afford to buy it!!) and right now, Wenger’s youthful army are still earning their stripes.

3) Who do you hate the most, Spurs fans or Chelsea fans and which do you want to win (if forced with a gun to your head to choose) in the FA Cup replay?

Chelsea fans are arrogant, but then again which set of fans aren’t when they are Champions, after all they’ve been through I can’t deny their true fans the right to brag.

The Spuddies on the other hand are a different kettle of morons. With the exception of a few (and there are some) most of them have had their minds warped by living in our shadow for a million years. They spend all their time hoping other teams beat us so they can take the mick just because they don’t have the ability to do it themselves.

I hope Chelsea beat them because if they do win the competition we can always say they bought it, right?

4) Settled into the Emirates yet?

Yeah. I love it man. It’s a beautiful arena and a great place to watch football.

Historically, any team who moves home always struggles in their first season so I think we’ve done ok considering. I’m positive we’ll finish 3rd and I can’t even see how we could finish outside the top four, so assuming we have Champions League Football next year I couldn’t ask for more.

However that long walk to and from the boozers doesn’t get any easier. I’d suggest nicking the Drayton back from the away fans if it wasn’t such a dump.

5) What do you think of Villa and do you worry that our new owners could give your lot a run for their money?

I’m still unsure about your owners, to truly compete I think you need to revamp your whole squad and I’m not sure they have enough money to do that. At the moment you’re closer to relegation than you are to Europe, but as I said earlier, it takes time to build a great team.

This summer will see Martin’s first real big chance to bring in some top quality players, and who he brings in will be vital. I think the signings of Ashley Young (bastards you are) and John Carew (You only signed him to play against us) shows that O’Neill is gunning for a big future at Villa, but he needs balance all over the pitch. A commanding midfield general and a beast of a centre back should be your next signings in my opinion.

6) Any opinions on Martin O’Neill.

I love him man. He’s a true character of the game who isn’t afraid to speak his mind. He has a great sense of humour too which I always like to see in a manager (unlike miserable Mourinho and Martin ‘negative’ Jol).

I really hoped he would be named England manager because I see him as a great motivator and tactically sound.

7) Who do you fear in the Villa team and who should we fear in yours?

Need you ask? Carew. He’s got a cracking record against us and I would not be surprised in the slightest to see him bang home a 90th minute winner.

8) Prediction please sir?

Do I have to?

Oh alright then, a dull 1-1 affair.

With thanks to Paul Mustchin from . Vital Arsenal

  • QUOTE: I think you need to revamp your whole squad and I’m not sure they have enough money to do that……… Dont you believe it, I think this will be a summer unpresidented in Villas Glorious History for bringing in Quality Players. On the other hand I would swop places with the Arsenal this season.

  • how can you talk to such a moronic gooner. mind you hes typical of the whingers from cashburton grave.

  • I’ve yet to meet a Villa fan who doesn’t crap on about Spurs! Inferiority complex maybe? Maybe just plain down hearted that the Messiah, oh great o’neil quite isn’t the manager they thought he was?

    Another 20 years of nothing for the Villains. Come on B’Ham!

  • You’ve not met many Villa fans then its quiet at the lib? Never met any who talk or care about Spurs, why would they? Bizarre post LOL

  • I haven’t met any – just had to put up with their drivel on the internet.

    Bunch of p**cks!

  • Doesn’t it make you wonder about the mental state of these plonker spurs fans who appear out of the wood work everytime anyone even mentions spurs? What are you doing on here anywhere? p*** off you arsenal wannabes.

  • Do you realise the irony of someone coming onto this article and posting a comment about Villa fans talking about another team when the content of the article has absolutley nothing to do with you silly spuddies at all???

  • now now guys! as a tottenham fan, i can explain y spurs fans come on your page, basically if you mention spurs or anyother club for that matter it gets picked up by the new searching website- newsnow! thats y!

    anyway im suprised to hear banter from aston villa aimed at spurs, where’s the hostility come from? newho i reckon old o’neill will come good next season, i don’t think he’s having a bad one i just think alot of other managers are just having good ones,

    For instance Redknapp has been sleeping with a leprechaun 4 luck, alladyce spent £5mil on security cameras to stop blackcats getting in the bolton training ground and so forth!

    Carew and young were gr8 signings tho, u jus need a few flair players, sum1 like lennon who if every1 else is playing shocking can open the game up!

  • newbz, you’re one of the first spurs fans to come on here without a hint of hostility towards us… most of your counterparts have little to no respect and have an overhyped opinion of themselves. Appreciate some sense from you though.

  • fair 1! to be honest, even iv noticed it, spurs seem to own a large number of e-fans! as read the articles watch the goals on youtube and suddenly think they kno everything about football, but l’arse fans are just as bad!!! good luck tommorow!

  • my german teacher was an aston villa fan. he didnt seem to care about spurs he knew aston villa were crap. this arsenal fan is annoying and is clearly trying to wind us up that explain the hostility. and the only reason i am on this is because it came up as news about spurs on newsnow

  • can someone give goonhater a drop of gripewater? or, failing that, arsenic. good croosover article chaps, i am relishing (not) coming up against carew again… »»Arsene Knows««

  • Quite at the library, what a hypocritical name cos every time we play you at No Heart Lane it seems you shut right up, pond scum monkeys. O’Neill is a great manager and can be a right *****er, Young, Carew and Petrov are all class, Barry’s one of your few long term keepers. i think Bouma could be good for you if he can stay fit and I like Agbonlahor, as said above though you def need another CB and top defensive midfield. Could do with a bit of flair to, but sorry dont think you’ll catch the mighty Arsenal anytime soon, start with the pondscum and work your way up. What ever happened to Luke Moore?

  • Ozi Gooner: Luke has been injured, but he’s on his way back having scored 4 goals in 4 games for the reserves. many of us are hoping he will get a game against you tonight!

  • Ozi Gooner – talk about delusions of grandeur! “the mighty Arsenal”?? What have you been smoking… Arsenal are alot of things but mighty ain’t one fo them…how else do you explain a week where you went out of 3 competitions. Come on get real.

  • Spurs are a small club and their supporters are small minded morons. With the exception of the porn peddlers down the road, I’ve never had the misfortune to meet a group of supporters with such a high opinion of their club, and for no reason whatsoever. The hatred towards Arsenal is borne out of jealousy, pure and simple. Spurs are not a top 4 team, and even their manager has said this week he’ll have to leave to win a league title. You’re in the same bracket as Villa (just without a European Cup) and nowhere near the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool or Man Ure.
