Vital Villa Q&A: Mat Kendrick - Birmingham Mail

Vital Villa Q&A: Mat Kendrick - Birmingham Mail

Vital Villa have been offered the unique opportunity to delve into the world of journalism, by quizzing the Birmingham Mail`s AVFC main man Mat Kendrick about his experiences of dealing with the club!

Mat has been working at the Birmingham Mail as their Villa correspondent and has kindly agreed to answer questions regarding his job of following all things Aston Villa.

This fantastic duty includes dealing with everything from the latest signings, to the McLeish in/out debate, to even answering my stupid tweets about Emile Heskey (although that is slightly less official).

If you have a question for Mat about his role as a journalist covering our beloved Aston Villa, please feel free to post them in the Vital Villa Forums, or in the comments below. I will pass them onto our willing host, who will (hopefully!) give us a fascinating insight into the world of claret & blue journalism!

One polite request would be to try and avoid the McLeish in/out debate, or current news topics. These are best saved for Mat`s regular live web-chats hosted on the Birmingham Mail website!

So Villa fans, ask away!

Many thanks to Mat for agreeing to answer as many questions as he can. I will kick off with. Mat, who have been the easiest / most difficult players/managers/officials you've had to deal with?

Matt, do you know what the revised 5 year plan is? / what level of signings budget do you anticipate will be available in the Summer/ wich players do you expect to leave?/ Will the North Stand be redeveloped?

Do you personally consider Villa to be a 'big' club or like Lawrenson think our days have gone?

Will pass on all questions to Mat but please bare in mind the idea is to ask about his work WITH the club, not how the club works, cheers!

As a fan, do you find yourself in a moral dilemma having such close contact with people who are killing our club? And also how can you even bear to be in the same room as AlexM? Is it just a job to you, like lawyers defendfing the guilty?
