Vital Villa Summer 2011 Interviews: CA_Villa

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?

A : Somewhere in the early to mid seventies . My older cousin is a hardcore BCFC fan and to annoy him I started following Villa . Thank God he wasn’t a Villa fan because then I’d probably have chosen BCFC and I can only guess what my life would have ben like ( drugs , crime anything to dull the pain really ) I’d like to thank him though , when I was a kid he’d would take me to Villa Park as often as he could .

2) Alex McLeish? Your opinion please?

A : Some of the names being thrown around initially were unrealistic . Some fans wanted Ancelotti who would’ve done one the moment Roma came calling and Villa Boas who cost Chelsea 30 million pounds to buy out his contract . That’s more than our transfer budget .

I hope to (h)Eck McLeish works out , for the fans’ sake and Randy’s . Wasn’t my first choice but not my last . Let’s see what he can do with a decent squad . He played defensive tactics at BCFC as he had no decent forwards . Now he’s got one and the opportunity to put together the midfield . Let’s see what he can do .

3) Best and worst moments of last season?

A : Best : Last 2 games of the season when I realized not only were we not going down but we could actually play a pretty good game . ( Left it a bit late yes , but we’re still up and here’s to a new season ! )
Worst : The moment I saw in Stephen Ireland’s body language that he didn’t want to be at Villa . When Villa sold James Milner for a shed load of cash plus Stephen Ireland I really believed we’d turned Man City over . I quite rate Ireland and my heart sank when I realized he was going to live up to the worst of his reputation .
Still , a committed Stephen Ireland is something to look forward to this year .

4) Your opinion of Randy Lerner?
Totally pro . I think we should be grateful for the owner we have . Bare in mind Man City , before the Sheiks , had an owner that ended up being indicted by his own country for all kinds of ropey stuff . BCFC currently have an owner who’s in all sorts of trouble.
West Ham have owners who are pornographers and dildo merchants . We have a manager who has experience in running a sports team , has an impeccable background and except for the new manager thing ( Time will tell .) has done nothing but good things for the club .
So : Rock On Randy Lerner .

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

A : The price is right for ‘ Der Hammer ‘ . I’ll go with Nzogbia as it’s the popular choice . and Shay Given , as having a goal keeper would shore up the defense quite nicely .

6) Stewart Downing, if he really wants out, should Villa refuse to let him go or get shot?

A : He stays unless we get a damn good deal for him . He owes us .

7) Favourite current player?
A : Bent for keeping us up . Agbonlahor for being Villa . Albie for being Villa and an exciting prospect.

8) Favourite all time player/s?
A : Jimmy Rimmer . Gordon Cowans .Gary Shaw.

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

A : I’m hoping a top half finish this season and we’ll build upon that ( I know ,we finished 6th blah , blah , blah . but we’ve had a pretty interesting 18 months . I’ve been a Villa fan for nearly 40 years so I tend to think of things long term . )
FA Cup : Probably get Man U again in the early stages
Carling : Going all the way !!!

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

A : How can such a Grand Club have under achieved for so long ?
Buggered if I know .

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!?!

A : The wife’s proof reading this so I’ll go with Debbie Harry . Already admitted my childhood crush to her .
Thump ? I currently live in the USA . You have no idea how embarrassing it is having Piers Morgan on TV representing Britain over here . If I was allowed to thump 3 people I’d keep thumping Piers Morgan to make sure I’d got the job done .
