AngusBaskervillian is next up for the Vital Villa interview.

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

In 2008 when Aston villa played Bolton wanderers and they won 4-2. That was my first ever Aston Villa game I went to and I supported hem since. I also support them because my uncle does and I was born near Villa Park.

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

Aston villa reaching the Caring cup final against Man United.

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

Ashley Young. We need a strong attacking midfielder.

4) Paul Lambert? Your opinion please?

I actually think that Paul Lambert is a really good manager as he won more games for us than we did last season and finished higher. I also think that if Lambert stays, we have a chance of winning Carling Cup, FA Cup and UEFA Champions league under him.

5) Best and worst moments of last season?

Beating Sunderland 6-1 and being knocked out of the Carling cup by Bradford City.

6) Some say last season was a success, others not so much. What is your opinion?

We did much better last season than the season before. So yes it was a success.

7) Your opinion of Randy Lerner and the board?

I think Lerner really needs to sell us as he more or less has said that he’s given us enough money and that we are know on our own. Therefore, the only way we can get money to buy players is by selling ours. Also, all we can really buy, is players from the championship if lucky, otherwise, we just won’t buy any players at all in the summer. Therefore, it really is about time he sold us.

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

Scott Sinclair, Scott Parker, Burnley striker Charlie Austin and Bulgarian winger Aleksander Tonev would be really good options for us and I reckon that if we got them, we will do much better next season and have a chance of finishing top seven as Parker, Sinclair and Tonev would be really strong in midfield for us which is where we are weak in at the moment and Austin would do really well upfront with Benteke with Wiemann and Gabby.

9) Which player/s should Villa get rid of this summer?

Darren Bent, Shay Given, Richard Dunne, Steven Ireland, Fabian Delph and Jean Makoun.

10) Favourite current player?

Christian Benteke.

11) Who was your first footballing hero and who are your favourite all time player/s?

My all time favorite players and first footballing heroes is James Milner, Ashley Young, Brad Friedel and Peter Withe.

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

Premier: 7th
FA Cup: Semi
Carling: Final

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

Q: Who was our number one best player we have ever had?

A: Peter Withe

14) Just to change the theme slightly, a snap shot of you outside of football, answer or ignore at your leisure:
(based on our WHO ARE YOU thread!!!)

a) Which celebrity/s would you most like to meet and why? Christian Benteke because I like him.

c) Location: Kenilworth
d) Favourite alcoholic drink: Spin
e) Favourite non-alcoholic drink: Dr Pepper
f) Favourite Film/s: Ted
