Vital Villa Summer 2011 Interviews: Lee282

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?

Supported the Villa since I was a kid. I remember helping with our school magazine when I was 10 and David Platt and Tony Daley came to see us and we did an article on them. That was pretty cool. Anyway, my family is very much split 50-50 down the middle. Half support the Villa, the other half the Blues. It was a no-brainer really.

2) Alex McLeish? Your opinion please?

Certainly not my first choice, but now he is here, I’m not so upset. I think he will do a better job than Martinez would’ve done, and I think he’ll also get more out of the current players we have. I don’t care that he managed the Blues beforehand. He’s never given any inclination that he’s a Blues fan and he’s never said anything bad about the Villa in the heat of the moment. Boring??? I guess we’ll wait and see.

3) Best and worst moments of last season?

The last few games without Houllier, I suppose. Beating Arsenal and Liverpool was good fun, even if it didn’t really mean anything. The worst moment, I guess I’d go for the Newcastle hammering and throwing the FA Cup game. Bad days. Although, seeing Arsenal throw away the League Cup was pretty bad too.

4) Your opinion of Randy Lerner?

I wouldn’t go as far to call him our saviour, but could you imagine where we’d be now without him? What if he’d bought the Blues instead of us? To be fair, he’s pumped in plenty of cash and worked hard at rebuilding our great club from the ground up. I’d say I have respect for what he’s doing, but he’s unlucky simply because in the world of Arab gazillionaires, nothing is ever going to be good enough now.

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

I guess N’Zog is the obvious choice now. I’d like to see Parker too though. Not sure there are many other options now, except maybe Barton. Not sure him and Ireland would be good role models for each other though 😀

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?

Glad he’s gone. Sure, didn’t want him to initially, but clearly the man has money problems and he wants more of it. Never liked him at ‘Boro when he was keeping Barry out the England squad and I never really warmed to him at the Villa.

7) Favourite current player?

I think the problem with the current Villa squad is that this is a difficult question. I’d probably have to say Gabby, purely for his loyalty and the fact he is Villa to the core.

8) Favourite all time player/s?

I always liked Platt, McGrath and Mellberg, but from my years playing goalie, I’d have to say Mr. Spink. Perhaps if Bosnich had stayed longer, it’d be him.

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

Premier: 7th
FA Cup: Quarters
Carling: A real good chance to reach the final

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

Who will be the next Villa legend?
I’m hoping it’s Bannan. This boy has some skills and I’d love to see him playing for the Villa for the rest of his career.

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!?!

For thumping: Initially, I wanted to say Rooney. He just has one of those faces. But perhaps I’d say Downing now 😀

For banging: a flip of the coin between Katy Perry and Lyv Tyler ;-D
