Vital Villa Summer 2011 Interviews: Intox

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?

Well I guess it was around the time Paul McGrath was shining for the Villa, added by myself being Irish also gravitated me towards the club.
Also this was around the same time Manchester United were starting to build dominance and kids were choosing them to support for the sake of glory.

I seen Villa as good honest pure football team to go with and never looked back.

2) Alex McLeish? Your opinion please?

At first I was disappointed considering he led a premier league team to drop in his most recent campaign. I seen his appointment on par with how I’d feel if we had got Steve McClaren. No disrespect to the SPL but being ‘proven’ in that league does not hold much water with me because lets face it, it is a two horse race (of lower standards) and has been for too long now. However, his recent attitudes, quotes and realism’s has led me to see him in a more positive light and give me a bit of hope for the coming season. I was really impressed with the acquisition of Shay Given and Charles N’Zogbia.

3) Best and worst moments of last season?

Best moment would have to be acquiring Darren Bent and see him give us a return for the money.
Worst moment would be anytime ‘Relegation Battle’ was mentioned.

4) Your opinion of Randy Lerner?

I feel its hard to give a fair opinion of Mr Learner as he is very much behinds the scenes. Its hard to know his motives and reason but judging by actions I feel he is a man who likes to play things very safe and is not one for a gamble this time around. I feel its possible that he is now coming to terms with what it takes to compete at a financial level in the premier league and having splashed some cash about during the MON area, he could be conceded to harsh reality that we might not break that top 4 anytime soon so it would be safer to remain a mid table safe team while balancing his books for the meantime.

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

Shay Given and Charles N’Zogbia were a great start, I don’t think we could have got better signings for our most needed areas on a realistic scale. Still though, I feel we need at least another winger in the mould of Shaun Wright-Phillips and to finally get the defense sorted in terms of players in natural positions. You can’t have too much cover.
I’ve seen a link for DJ Campbell today, a striker in that mould wouldn’t be a bad thing for cover and rotation as Bent is our only banker bet but I’m sure everyone has their own 2 penny’s on that!

6) (changed question!) Stewart Downing, now he has gone, were Villa right to get shot of him or should they have kept him against his wishes?

If a player wants to go, let him I say. But on a side note I feel he showed a lack of respect to us by using Villa as a stepping stone considering we took him on injured and what we did for his career. I would have wanted him to WANT to give us one more season at least but hey….

7) Favourite current player?

Darren Goals Bent

8) Favourite all time player/s?

Paul McGrath

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

Premier 6th – 9th
FA Cup: Quarter or Semi
Carling: Win!

10) Future Villa legends?

Albrighton, Bannan, Clark

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!?!

Both thumps!

Female: Justin Bieber
Male: Lady Gaga
