Vital Villa Summer 2011 Interviews: Holte ender 1969

How do you do one I hear you cry? Click here and find out! YOUR TURN: The Vital Villa Interviews..

1) When did you become a Villa fan and why?

When I was a nipper I used to jump up and down screaming to my dad that he should take me and my brother with him to the games. After doing this for about half of the season he relented and took us, I’m not sure of who we was playing but we won cos I seem to remember my dad saying to us to get in front of the barriers as we was standing in the middle of the Holte end. My dad has always been a fan and most of my family are from B’ham area, I’m lucky we are all villa and not the unwashed. Now I live in New Zealand it is only on Sky that I see my beloved Villa play, not always good with 2am or 3am K.O’s. I’m back to visit family in Oct so I will be making sure I catch the Baggies game and a.n.other away game, that’s if I can get tickets.

2) Alex McLeish? Your opinion please?

Too soon to say really, I was one of many that thought after the GH saga Randy would get it right……………….and in came the big Eck! I love the club and would hope that whoever is in charge that we get it right so he will get my backing unless we have another season like last term.

3) Best and worst moments of last season?

Best was definately beating Liverpool and Arsenal. Worst was the non show at St James’s Park against Newcastle and the just as bad at Man City.

4) Your opinion of Randy Lerner?

The right man for the job and has been since he came in after deadly. We are in a financial transition with the new rules coming in so the cut backs are not a surprise and we will have to be more realistic with transfers and wages etc.

5) Which player/s should Villa sign this summer?

Well we have got Zoggy in which is a masterstroke and will prove a great buy and Given who I wanted for a long time and showed his class with some great saves in the Asia cup just gone. I would ask for another winger in the mould of Wright-Phillips and keep hold of Cuellar for cover as the price quoted for our bearded one is a joke. I would also look at another striker as sadly I do not see Delboy as a threat to either Bent or Gabby, maybe we should loan out Delboy but with a thread bare squad already, maybe that’s not a good idea.

6) (changed question!) Stewart Downing, now he has gone, were Villa right to get shot of him or should they have kept him against his wishes?

Well deserved player of the season but his head got turned at international level and sadly it all went to his head. Shame as I really liked him but now will definately boo him all the way from NZ.

7) Favourite current player?

Purely for his eye for goal it has to be Benty for me, I was so happy that we surprised everyone to capture his signature. Long may he continue to score goals for us and for the first time in a long time we may have our 20+ goal machine. I can see Shay being very popular also after his bright start. I will always like Gabby but feel he needs a purple patch to bring his confidence back, this might help if he was played off Benty rather than out wide. It’s always nice to see a local boy do good.

8) Favourite all time player/s?

All of the 1981/82 team. God, Collymore, Daley, Laursen, Mellberg but above all for me it has to be Sid Cowans. Oh and nearly forgot my other hero Juan Pablo Angel who we signed from River Plate and became an instant hero in the Clinton household.

9) What do you expect us to do/finish this season?

Premier: = 11th
FA Cup: = 6th round and out to Utd again!
Carling: = our one chance of silverware?

10) You can ask yourself any question you want to about Villa and what is your answer?

Why do we not have a proper club anthem, we have talked about the bells are ringin but for me that doesn’t get the ground rockin’. I would much prefer a middle of the road choon adapted and blasted out. We need to be the 12th man and for a long time the crowd at B6 has been too quiet. Sure the footy on offer from Villa hasn’t been pretty but sometimes it’s up to us as fans to lift the team and get behind them. There has been a thread on this I know but we are still yet to conquer this maybe due to the diverse set of answers.

11) Right, lets lower the tone… which celebrity would you most like to bang and which (male I would think) celeb would you most like to thump!?!

Kim Kardashian and Sofia Vergara in a threesome.

Thump MON for walking out on us and causing disharmony at B6 that has taken us a season to get over.
