Vital Villan Interviews: Fletch
1 - How long have you been a Villa fan and how did you first get the Claret & Blue faith?
4th March 1967 was my first Villa Park game versus Tottenham Hotspur it finished 3-3. My best mates dad use to take us to Villa one week and then the sty the next, when I could go it alone, I had Villa mates, so that was my choice.
2 - What was your first game?
I`m not sure if the above match at Villa park was, I can remember a pre-season at Walsall, we won 0-1 a Willie Anderson penalty.
3 - What is your most memorable moment as a Villa fan?
Beating Manchester United at Wembley in the League Cup, it stopped them performing the English domestic treble.
4 - And the worst moment?
7 October 1967, I was at junior school and we lost at home 2-4 to the scum, I never got over that very early shock.
5 - Who are your favourite current Villa players?
Looking at the current squad, and I know he is about to leave but it`s last years players so Gareth Barry and Olof Mellberg.
