Cambridgeshire Villan takes the Vital Villa interview.
It is Cambridgeshire Villan’s turn on the Vital Villan Interviews..
1 – How long have you been a Villa fan and how did you first get the Claret & Blue faith?
Since the very early 90’s, all my mates seemed to support Liverpool, Man Utd or Arsenal & my dad was never into football apart from the world cup. So I went with Villa as I liked what I saw and the rest is now history.
2 – What was your first game?
My uncle (a blades supporter) took me to Bramall Lane in 94 to see Villa beat Sheffield United with I believe Graham Fenton scoring his first league goal.
3 – What is your most memorable moment as a Villa fan?
The league cup victory over united in 94, all I can remember hearing at school was treble this & treble that from united supporters. Everyone just expected united to win, I even had a Liverpool supporting mate come round to watch the game & he couldn’t wait to see us get a hiding. It just didn’t happen & what a great cup run with the semis against Tranmere as well.
4 – And the worst moment?
That throw in back to that keeper, still have nightmares.
5 – Who are your favourite current Villa players?
Laursen he seems to get his head on everything.
6 – Which former player/s are your ultimate heroes?
cgrath, Saunders, Mellberg & will always have a soft spot for JPA.
7 – Which player do you think was the worst to ever put on the team colours?
Djemba twins, why did we sign him! Seemed a very desperate buy to me at the time.
8 – What is the best goal you have seen Villa score and which is your favourite game?
Dalian Atkinsons against the Don’s & Cahill’s stunner against the Blues.
9 – Best away ground visited?
I’d say Old Trafford, & I’m gonna say Julius Martins Lane as know one will have a clue who plays there & Villa never have been there but its where my home towns team play.
10 – Who would you like to see Villa sign this summer?
Looks like it’s gonna happen anyway, but I’ll say Milner. [has now happened, so good for you! JF]
11 – What are your predictions for us this season in the:
a) League 3rd – ever the optimist
b) Europe semis
c) Carling Cup winners
d) FA Cup we’ll be lucky & wont get Man Utd until the quarter finals.
12 – What is your opinion of Martin O’Neill?
Can’t fault him yet & don’t want to. I have absolute confidence in the guy.
13 – What is your opinion of Randy Lerner and the new board?
Job very well done so far, keep it going. Probably the best owner in the league at present.
14 – Where do you sit at Villa and are you a season ticket holder?
Not a season ticket holder I have a baby & a mortgage (& a wife!), but I usually sit in the Trinity Upper.
15 – And finally if you could invite 4 people connected to Villa, living or dead, to a dinner party, who would they be? And you can add one bit of top totty as well to make the party go with a ‘bang’ ;o)
John Gregory, Paul Mcgrath, Big Ron & Gareth Barry’s agent + my wife.
