Ray Graydon - His Time At Villa
Ray Graydon has been kind enough to do an interview for www.walsall.vitalfootball.co.uk. What a great coup.
The Villa question is as below, please visit Vital Walsall and read the whole interview, makes for nice reading!
You had a very successful playing career at Aston Villa. What were your best moments and who were the best players you played alongside?
I was very lucky, I had so many good moments at Aston Villa, and it`s hard to pick one.
If I had to choose one it would be in 1975 when we beat Norwich City in the League Cup Final and I scored the winning goal. To score in front of 100,000 people and especially my family - it was a great feeling. I played with so many good players at Villa. Chris Nicholl (who is a very good friend of mine) and Bruce Rioch, both were a very big help for me, they both had great attributes as players and as a person. Chris was a very effective defender and Bruce was very exciting.
I would also add, John Gidman and Brian Little were great young players when I was there.
