Midbedvillans01 is next for the Vital Villa interview.

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

Hooked when my dad took me to Villa Park to see Johnny Dixon parade the 1957 FA Cup the rest is history

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

Can only be that night in Rotterdam in 1982

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

Of all the players I have seen at Villa over the years the one player I would have back at his peak has got to be Paul Merson warts and all

4) Paul Lambert? Your opinion please?

I still believe he has the potential to go on to be the best manager this club has ever had he is working under far a more difficult environment than any of his predecessors mistakes have and will be made but what the hell none of us are perfect apart from Fear.

5) Best and worst moments of last season?

Best moment without a shadow was the QPR game at home the atmosphere was electric all the way through and I am sure that drove the players on, lose that one and I think we were gone. Worst moment I have got to say for me was Bradford City away having been to most away games including Chelsea this game they definitely bottled out.

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

Definitely not a success in what would be normally expected of a Villa team put I dont think I can ever recall a manager in the Premier League ever having to complete whole body transplant surgery while the patient is still alive it was a roller coaster ride of epic proportions hoping for something smoother next season

7) Your opinion of Randy Lerner and the board?

Despite the almighty cockup with McLeish I think that the board are operating within the realms of economic reality and have shown they will back the manager I don’t think we can expect any marquee signings I think the distribution of the mighty SKY TV pound has put paid to that. However I would prefer a team that plays for Villa and not just the money so at the moment I think we are in safe hands

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

I wouldn’t dream of trying to second guess Lambert on this one.

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

Pretty much the ones already muted in the press Bent, Ireland, Bannan, Delfonouso, Stevens etc

10) Favourite current player?

Ashley Westwood started off complete rubbish against Southampton but has got better and better as the season went on

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

First hero has got to be Gerry Hitchens but subsequently players of the ilk of Rioch, Lockhead, Sid Cowans, Platty and smiler Yorkie

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

FA Cup: 5th round
League Cup: Quarter Finals

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

Why? Because its there.

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? Had a thing for Amanda Tapping for years have changed now to Rachel Luttrell (Stargate Atlantis)
b) Age I was 7 when Villa last one the FA Cup work it out
c) Location: Name should give it away
d) Favourite alcoholic drink: Morgans Spiced Rum dash coke ice and lime
e) Favourite non-alcoholic drink: Rocket Fuel coffee
f) Favourite Film/s: Sci Fi geek so anything from Blade Runner, Star Wars, Star Trek
g) Favourite TV Show/s: As above anything sci fi of late Continuum,Defiance, Touch and Fringe
h) Music?: Anyone who had long hair smelled of petunia oil and belted music out at a million decibels Purple, Sabbath, The Nice, The Moodies
i) Best ever moment in your life: Birth of first son and second son ( Both came out Claret and Blue)
j) Ambitions: Two main ones left, bowl a perfect 300 game in tenpin and to go into space no problems there then.

  • Good interview, Westwood is one of my favorite players too. I have a feeling Delph is going to have his best season to date also, I can’t wait to see these boys on the paddock!
