Vital Villa Summer 2011 Interviews: TVRWHITEY

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?

1977, when Villa won the League Cup. I was glued to the T.V and Radio for the Wembley 0-0 draw, 1-1 draw at Sheffield and 3-2 Win at Old Trafford. My first game was friendly at Fellows Park, Walsall that we won 3-2, testimonial for their physio. If I remember right our goals were scored by Brian Little -2 and John Gidman. It was a close call as most of my mates were either West Brom fans, Villa Fans or Leeds United. Had my loyalty tested when Arsenal beat Sunderland in the F.A cup following season and I still have a soft spot for them now.

2) Alex McLeish? Your opinion please?

Like most fans he wasn’t my first choice. Would have preferred Martin Jol or David Moyes. However I’m glad we didnt get Steve McClaren or the guy from Wigan. He seems to have made some good signings and the team are now behind him, which is an improvement on GH. So I am optimistic that he can do well, for at least 2 seasons anyway.

3) Best and worst moments of last season?

Best: The Manchester United game, pity we couldn’t hang on though, but the youngsters staked their claim. Worst: Where do I start ? The Newcastle defeat, The Liverpool error by GH, The Stephen Ireland/ Milner deal, we were robbed.

4) Your opinion of Randy Lerner?

He is a definite improvement on Ellis, however I have to question his appointment of Houllier and going against the fans wishes by appointing an ex Blues Manager. Hopefully he will prove us wrong, but I believe within 2-3 seasons he will get us relegated.

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

Given and NZogbia are excellent signings, I would still like to see us sign another striker, as back up for if Bent is injured is poor. I think we missed out on Nicolas Bendtner or Maybe lets get Peter Crouch back. Still think we need to look for permanent replacements for Dunne and Petrov, as both are getting no younger and I don’t think Clark or any of our midfield youngsters are ready to replace either yet. Personally I’d raid Spurs for Hutton and Kranchar. I’d Rather see a more attacking midfield instead of a holding midfielder.

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?

No I think they did the right thing. Who can argue with NZogbia and £10.5 Million spare?

7) Favourite current player?

Between Darren Bent and Fabian Delph.

8) Favourite all time player/s?

Andy Gray, Paul McGrath, David Platt and Peter Withe (just for THAT goal). Oh and I loved Benito Carbonie (just wished he’d of stopped longer.

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

Premier: Between 7th and 10th
F.A Cup: knocked out by Manchester United or a bad ref’s decision. Hopefully at least Semi’s

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

Do you ever see us getting into the Champions League ?

Not without HUGE investment.

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!?!

Toss up between Kelly Brook and Jennifer Aniston, or both together – lol. I don’t really hate anyone enough to thump them, NOT even the Blues, but if I had to pick someone it would be a Premier Division Ref – mentioning no names.
