Vital Villa Summer 2011 Interviews: Prepared

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?

I was born and raised in Brantley Road, Witton on May 30th 1982. I missed our greatest achievement by 4 days – My dad took me down to VP and had my picture taken in the European Cup and I was a villa fan from that day.

I used to get my kit on when I was around 7/8 yrs old and stand outside my house playing football in the street asking all the fans returning to their cars what the score was and who scored etc.

2) Alex McLeish? Your opinion please?

I have to admit that I actually liked McLeish as a manager when he was at Blues, I liked how he got his team to play with passion and a bit of fight – I especially admired that last season in the first few months when we was getting hammered week in week out and they were digging in and getting results.

He took over at Birmingham and wasn`t able to halt their slide down into the Championship but he then made his own buys and put together a squad which got promoted and then finished 9th in their first season back in the Prem which was their highest ever position in the Prem. He then trumped that and won them their first cup in 130 years. Yes they went down but he did lose Dann & then Johnson Zigic Gardner & Martins after the cup final so it`s not like he took a strong team down, it was decimated with injuries & suspensions.

So after that ramble what I am trying to say is that I think he will do well for us, he will make us hard to beat and hopefully with the attacking talent we have here we will pick up a few more 1-0 wins.

3) Best and worst moments of last season?

Best moment would have to be Arsenal away, what a day and atmosphere.

Worst moment would be the loss to man city in December, at that point I just thought we were genuinely in trouble and looking likely to go down.

4) Your opinion of Randy Lerner?

I think he is a very good chairman, he has done a lot for us that people are now mocking because they are not getting the manager that they wanted, or the billions spent on superstars.

He backed MON, he backed GH and he will back McLeish, but there is a need to bring down our wage bill and he is right to do that for the good of the club.

I didn`t agree with him going for McLeish, because I thought that there were better managers out there out of work but he is the owner of the club, it`s his decision and he will live or die by it so he gets my support.

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

I would like to see the below.

P Robinson

Robinson from Blackburn in goal, N`zogbia or Hoillet or both to come in as competition on the wings with Downing and Albrighton, Milner to come home (Please) and Sturridge on loan.

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

I know someone who knows Downing, so I know that he wants to move back up North, but I also know that he wouldn`t kick up a fuss if he has to stay. Personally I would keep him for another season unless we get £20+ for him

7) Favourite current player?

Luke Young – Gives everything every time he plays.

8) Favourite all time player/s?

McGrath – Just a yard ahead of the game all the time, awesome to watch.

Taylor – Box to box, tackles and scores and also a Villa boy himself – Legend.

Merson – He was class to watch, always wanted the ball and made us tick – we still miss a player like him down at VP.

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

Premier: 7th
FA Cup: quarters
Carling: Winner

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

Do I really think that we will win something in the next few years? Yes – otherwise what is the point??

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 – Megan Fox, she is just gorgeous and slutty at the same time.

Thump – Piers Morgan, do I need to explain?
