Vital Villa Summer 2011 Interviews: Ricardomeister

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?

Back in the early 70’s. In those days you would support your local team and I was hardly going to choose to support Small Heath Alliance.

2) Alex McLeish? Your opinion please?

Seems like a good bloke, with plenty of experience as a player and manager. I doubt his tactical nous, but if he has the same huge amount of luck with us that he had in last season’s Carling Cup then he will do fine.

3) Best and worst moments of last season?

Best…the 3-0 win over West Ham. A very good performance, which brought on plenty of optimism for the season…optimism that was soon to be crushed.
Worst….there were many bad moments, but the worst has to be the FA Cup capitulation by Houllier against Man City by his disgraceful team selection.

4) Your opinion of Randy Lerner?

Seems like a top bloke on a personal level, and surely nobody can doubt his good intentions for the club. However, as a chairman, I would say he has done a good, but in no way outstanding, job. Although the net spend has been ok, I think that he and the board have shown plenty of naivety in terms of unrealistic goals and managerial appointments. I am just glad that he has done better here than at the Browns, where in his 8 full years of ownership, only 2 of the 32 NFL teams have won fewer games!

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

If his shoulder is fully recovered, Shay Given. Also, Scot Dann, Maynor Figueroa, Charles N’Zogbia, Scot Parker, James Milner (on loan) Daniel Sturridge plus a couple of foreign flair players, such as Diego or Canales.

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

If we can get £18 million then get rid.

7) Favourite current player?

Darren Bent. The only top 6 quality player that we currently have.

8) Favourite all time player/s?

Paul McGrath. The only world class player that I have seen in claret and blue.

9) What do you expect us to do/finish this season?
Premier: Mid table mediocrity, though anything from 7th to 18th is possible, depending on new signings/injuries.
FA Cup: 4th round
Carling: last 16

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

Where is Miss Birmingham’s season ticket? Hopefully, either the seat next to mine or, due to a double booking, the same seat as mine so she has to sit on my lap!

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!?!

To bang? honourable mentions to Millie Clode, Natalie Sawyer, Kylie and Archie Panjabi but first choice would be Anna Torv.

To thump? A toss up between Ian Duncan Smith, Chris Grayling, David Cameron and George Osborne….Maria Miller would also be there if she had meat and 2 veg! For sheer vile, smug, total lack of compassion it would have to be George Osborne.
