Vital Villa Interviews: WillatheVillaGorilla
WillatheVillaGorilla is next up for the Vital Villa interviews.

1 - How long have you been a Villa fan and how did you first get the Claret & Blue faith?

Since birth, my Mum's side of the family are Villa and Walsall(!). My Dad is a cockney and supports the team that nicked our kit... 'My old man is a Hammers fan, I said boll.... .... . ...'!

2 - What was your first game?

West Ham v Villa, my old man took me when I was 8 to try and make me support the 'Ammers, he tried to seduce me with Cottee and MacAvenie but we beat them 2-1, so i suppose i'm a bit of a glory supporter as I supported Villa because they won!

3 - What is your most memorable moment as a Villa fan?

Hmmmm... too many, taking the daughter to her first game at Derby last season, winning 6-0, relegating Coventry 3-2 and Angel scoring his first goal, sitting in the West Ham end but right next to our away fans in both quarter finals of the league cup when Southgate missed the penalty and we lost, but then we got a replay and Ian Taylor scored in extra time to seal the win, and then beating Chelsea 2-0 this season and the feeling we could do something special at last...

4 - And the worst moment?

Losing the Fa Cup at Wembley, a nice family day out and the last ever game at the old Wembley, ruined by James and Di Matteo, losing 2-1 to the Blues and Dublin and Gudjohnson getting sent off, one of the only times i've left early and angry!! Oh, and every time i go to Old Trafford.

5 - Who are your favourite current Villa players?

Ashley Young!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

6 - Which former player/s are your ultimate heroes?

Paul Merson

7 - Which player do you think was the worst to ever put on the team colours?

Didier Agathe - great signing Martin!!

8 - What is the best goal you have seen Villa score and which is your favourite game?

Merson against Everton in the last minute, 30 yard lob to win 1-0, Gabby's against Chelsea to seal the 2-0 win, Petrov at Derby

Best game, relegating Coventry 3-2, 2-0 down at half time, coming back to win 3-2, Angel scoring his first goal, VP celebrated that goal for about 10 minutes!! And then Merson topped it off!!! And we relegated them! happy days!! Winning 2-1 at Blues last year, and getting my picture celebrating the second goal in the Evening Mail

9 - Best away ground visited?

The Emirates

10 - Who would you like to see Villa sign this summer?

David Villa - its in the name

11 - What are your predictions for us this season in the:
a) League
3rd if we make some good signings, 6th if we don't
b) Europe out in the Intertoto!!!
c) Carling Cup 4th round loss to someone rubbish

d) Fa Cup win it, beating Man Ure in the final this time, honestly it'll happen

12 - What is your opinion of Martin O'Neill?

He is mental, in the best possible way

13 - What is your opinion of Randy Lerner and the new board?

Professional to the max

14 - Where do you sit at Villa and are you a season ticket holder?

K4 - row 7 - upper holte - yes season ticket holder - sit next to my Mum!!

15 - And finally (stolen without shame from Vital Arsenal!) 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)

Merson - always good on a night out
Martin O'Neill - could listen to him for hours
Dwight Yorke - would have some great stories
Doug Ellis - would be pure entertainment

Jenna Jameson - for some after dinner party entertainment with Dwight and Paul!!

Can we hold you to the F.A. Cup Final prediction WillatheVillaGorilla? But in the same token, can we overlook your predicted Inter-Toto demise?

Relegating Coventry City remains a favourite memory of many Villans. Must admit, it was a great feeling after the game, particularly after coming back from 2-0 down, to send that shower packing.
