Vital Villa Summer 2011 Interviews: richiain

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?

1982! Glory boy! I was six and with a dad with no interest in football so I tagged onto my grandfathers: either Norwich City or the Mighty Villa!

2) Alex McLeish? Your opinion please?

I genuinely thought it was lazy paper talk and he was waiting to fall in at the end of the merry-go-round. Maybe he has! Not happy with it at start, as like another vital member commented on I could see us turning a corner under GH, its the potential for poor football. Having said that I can see the cold logic behind the appointment; discipline, hard work, respect for the club and I think AM is canny and intelligent enough to know what he has to do above win some games!

3) Best and worst moments of last season?

Best: The pathetic optimism during the summer, ordering my home and away tops ( first time since Brian Little!) CAREW and YOUNG (!) and the prospect of taking my son to VP for the first time!

Worst: (Too obvious to say the Newcastle game!) Above kits comming through late so CAREW had a couple of months shelf life! The above first game for my boy being a tepid 1-1 with Bolton.But generally THE CONSTANT UNCERTANCY!!!!!!

4) Your opinion of Randy Lerner?

Cant knock him. Just look at what he has done to this club for Pete’s sake. I hadn’t been for some years when I first returned after the redevelopments, just think about that anyone who doubts him. Again quoting another Vital member why spend £5 when you only have £3? trust him!

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

Given (short term, don’t want to see him between posts in two seasons!), Parker (definitely), N’Zogbia, love to see Sturridge( but cant see it) and a LB ( god knows who!)

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

The key there is ‘if ‘. If he does then get rid no question but make them pay for him. Best case is Arsenal use their Fab money on him!

7) Favourite current player?

Prob Bent, hanging all my hopes on him! no pressure Daz.

8) Favourite all time player/s?

McGrath, Platt, Daley, Saunders, Cowans and I love UGO!!!!!!!!

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

Premier 7th
FA Cup: when we get the Mancs early doors!
Carling: semi at least.

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

Would the signing of Junihio( spelling?) turned us into top four mainstays? NO. 🙂

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:Susanna Reid from BBC breakfast

Punch: anyone who thinks they are famous( especially if I don’t!) through no good reason, oh and whoever is actually banging Susanna Reid!
