When did you become a Villa fan and why?

As long ago as I can remember. My Father taught myself and my sister to love the Villa as soon as he could lol. First match I remember was a night match V West Ham. 7th Feb 1966, we lost 2 -1. I was 9. Bobby Moore, Hurst and Peters all played for them IIRC.

What is your favourite Villa moment of all time/most treasured memory?

Going to the 1971 League Cup Final with my Father as it was his last match.

If you could bring back a former Villa player into this team (at his peak) who would it be and why?

Probably Andy Gray for his all action style and total lack of fear. Oh and the Goals.

How do you rate head coach Dean Smith’s time in charge so far?

I always thought he was the right man for the job and he is proving me correct. Long may it continue.

Best and worst moments of last season?

Wembley obviously for the best. The best Villa day out in many many a year. Worst, probably the cabbage throwing incident as it spelt the end of Steve Bruce who I admired as a proper man but his time was up. Almost as much for his own good as ours.

Your opening opinions on Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens?

They did not become rich by being fools and nothing i have seen has changed that opinion. We are in VERY good hands.

Tyrone Mings has arguably been the standout loan signing, but we only have a matching offer clause. Would you break the proverbial bank to secure his signature or do you go for Tammy Abraham?

Tyrone could become a Villa legend. Pay what it takes. Not sure on Tammy but dont think he will be allowed to leave Chelsea anyway.

Jack Grealish has proven himself to be a key man, how do you rate his development?

He is improving continually at the moment. The Premier League will suit him as there are less cloggers. He can be as good as he wants.

Player of the Year?

SJM, a steal.

All time favourite Villan?

Brian Little, no question. The most naturally gifted Villa player it has been my pleasure to watch. He used to glide across the grass similar to how Jack does now. Skilful with it as well.

Hope’s for the coming campaign?

Mid table finish and trying to win every game we play.
