badge73 is next for the Vital Villa interview.

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

I didn`t became a villa fan till around 12 or 13 as most around our way were either Man Utd or Liverpool fans. I did used to go down and follow Redditch United but got a bit painful as only so many defeats you could watch lol dad is a Wolves and few others in the family are Baggies, thank god in a way as imagine being related to a blose ….

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

has to be the two league cup finals, especially as you consider Leeds and Man Utd were the top teams of their day, and who can forget the Savo goal?

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

has to be God, as think he could show the youngsters how to read the game and make life easier for themselves, shame he has personal problems as would love villa to give him a bit of a coaching role.

4) Paul Lambert? Your opinion please?

I like the bloke, knows what he wants to do and doesn’t care who he upsets to do it, put up with all the crap thrown at him from the press and yet at the end of the season, yes the same press are praising him to the hilt. give the bloke a few seasons and the good old days will be back.

5) Best and worst moments of last season?

the away win at Anfield, the 3 nil defeat to Wigan as should not be losing against teams like that.

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

depends on what was set out to be achieved doesn’t it? if someone had said villa would survive, get a decent cup run and a player taking the premiership by storm as well as most attacking force (Gabby and Weiman after February) the fans would of bitten your hands off for it, but no, as always half pint syndrome and the fickle whine from there tv sets.

7) Your opinion of Randy Lerner and the board?

they needed this season to work, as fans are rightly giving them stick, some for the right reasons and others … just because they are bored on the net.

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

I would like to see the left back situation sorted and see villa bid for Danny Rose as like the player and has a good engine, another problem is the centre of defence but think he will go abroad to sort that out, get a decent Eastern European who isn’t scared, or even a Turk (loved Alpay as he would not give up)

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

Bent, Given, Ireland, Holman, Delfonso, Kea, Stevens, as well as Hutton off the books, give N`Zogbia a verbal improve or out by January

10) Favourite current player?

like obviously the front three but have a soft spot for Delph as think he will be captain material as see the way hes prepared to lead and give our own players a telling off.

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

probably Dalgliesh who was a fine player, all time? Zidane as his control is amazing.

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

Premier: Top half
FA Cup: Quarter finals
Carling: Not really interested to be honest, it has been devalued for the past twenty years.

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

What should be the new kit? The 82 winning kits with Acorns as sponsors.

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? honestly don’t know as don’t buy into the celebrity stuff, maybe because I’m not a sheep
b) Age 40 on Saturday
c) Location: Redditch
d) Favourite alcoholic drink: nice pint of bitter
e) Favourite non-alcoholic drink: tea
f) Favourite Film/s: a decent thriller, or Western, Lord of the Rings
g) Favourite TV Show/s: Daily Politics, Question Time, This Week
h) Music?: Rock and blues
i) Best ever moment in your life: waking up alive
