Vital Villan Interviews: Astonian Villan



Astonian Villan Interview

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

Have been since I was 3, my fave pic is of me lying on a Villa towel in my very first kit.

2 - What was your first game?

Can't remember my very first to be honest it was 25 years ago now, however the first game I have full memory of is the last day of the original Holte. We beat Liverpool 2-1 with all goals coming at the Holte.

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

Going to Italy to watch us against Inter the place was buzzin and we slaughtered them.

4 - And the worst moment?

Has to be the Blue Noses Defeats!

5 - Who are your favourite current Villa players?

All of the boys who played last season.

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

I could go all the way back to before I was born but I won't bother. So I'll have to say Daley, Taylor, McGrath, Townsend to name but a few.

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

Fashanu only because the poor sod was falling apart.

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

So many to choose from, Savo's in the Cup Final, Petrov's this season but 1 that stands out for me is Townsend's free kick against Chelsea many moons ago.

9 - Best away ground visited?

Inter Milan by a long shot.

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

Van Der Vaart, Boruc.

11 - What are your predictions for us this season in the:
a) League
Champs
b) Europe Champs
c) Carling Cup Champs
d) Fa Cup Champs

No pressure lads!

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

Potentially got what it takes to be our greatest.

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

Premierships best with out doubt.

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

Whenever I get chance it's Holte all the way, live to far from Brum now to get a season ticket :(

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)

Savage, Bruce, Ellis, Benitez then I'll get the totty AKA Chain saw.

With thanks to...Astonian Villan

Yes, I'll have a couple of glasses of whatever you've been drinking Astonian Villan. Certainly have to admire the positivity of your predictions though. Great stuff!
