Vital Villa Summer 2011 Interviews: Greenday

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?

Taken to my first game in 1967 by my Dad, a 1-0 defeat to Plymouth. I really had little choice in who I could support, but would not change a thing to be honest. Proud to carry on the family tradition of following Aston Villa.

2) Alex McLeish? Your opinion please?

Thought it was just a media wind up when he was first mentioned. Would in no way have been my choice. But now he is the Manager of Aston Villa I feel we have to support him. The constant change of Manager is a recipe for disaster.

3) Best and worst moments of last season?

The best was when we signed Darren Bent. I fear without his arrival and the lift it gave everyone we may well have been looking forward to Championship football this season.
The worst was the FA Cup defeat at Man City. Off the back of a good victory against Blackburn and with a home tie against Reading awaiting the winners, to select a weakened side made no sense whatsoever.

4) Your opinion of Randy Lerner?

I believe he has backed both previous Managers in the transfer market and do not for one minute doubt that McLeish will receive the necessary funds to move us forward. I think Randy Lerner has been a good owner for Aston Villa and he has my 100% support.

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

Shay Given, Charles N`Zogbia, Scott Parker, Roger Johnson, Alan Hutton and would like to see a signing that has the wow factor ……….. Joe Cole maybe.

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

I really rate him as a footballer but feel quiet disappointed that he has one good season and seemingly wants to jump ship. I got the feeling from his recent court case that he is very ‘agent led’. I would get rid of him if thats the case as only players committed 100% should play for us.

7) Favourite current player?

Darren Bent…. a goalscorer pure and simple.

8) Favourite all time player/s?

Paul McGrath, Brian Little, Andy Gray (75-79), Alex Cropley, Gary Shaw and my childhood hero Willie Anderson.

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

Premier League finish top 8
FA Cup WINNERS
Carling Cup QF

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

If you could choose any football club to be your local rivals who would you choose?

We have the perfect local rivals thank you very much….. No matter how bad things may seem at the Villa we can always rely on Birmingham City to give us a good laugh.

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!?!

Bang ….. Nessa, in her Villa shirt!!!!!!
Thump …. Trevor Francis
