Vital Villa Summer Interview: randy.stand
randy.stand steps up for the Vital Villa members interviews.
Q: When did you become a Villa fan and why?
From birth. Whole family of Villa supporters, no other choice.
Q: The season just gone, good bad or ugly? What did you think of it?
Good. A cup final, a cup semi final, both in which we were very unlucky. 6th again. better points tally. Frustrating we fell away a little but we weren't ever going to be good enough for fourth.
Q: Best and worst moment of last season?
Few great moments, ones that stand out....Blackburn semi final, Blues home, Blues Away, Man Utd away and Liverpool away.
Worst moment: Chelsea away.
Q: James Milner... is he off do you think? If so, what price (realistically) should Villa hold out for? If off to Man City, which - if any - of their players would you want in exchange?
I'd like to keep Milly at Villa Park but being realistic if they offered 30m i'd struggle to turn it down. I'd definetly hold out for 30m. I'd like Steven Ireland, think he would be a natural replacement and would leave plenty of money in the coffers.
Q: What signings (type of player or specific name/s if you wish) would you like to see Villa buy this summer?
Still need a goalscorer..ie- Robbie Keane. Need a right back. Another midfielder. Possibly left back if Shorey goes.
Q: Where do you stand on Martin O'Neill (I don't mean literally, that would be assault) ?
Still behind him. Were better off now than we have been for donkey's years. If there is someone else out there better than him and a realistic option then i'd like someone to tell me, because up to now, no one has been able to answer that question.
Q: Your opinion of Randy and the board?
Haven't got a bad word to say about them. Transformed the club.
Q: Favourite current player and favourite all time player/s
Current: Richard Dunne, he is a monster and should be captain. Favourite player from the days when i watched Villa as a kid would be Paul Merson, Gareth Southgate and Big Dion Dublin.
Q: Do you expect progress next season, difficult to answer before the transfer window closes I know?
Not without huge spending. I'd expect top 6/7 and a decent cup run again.
Q: Right, lets lower the tone... which celebrity would you most like to bang and which (male I would think) celeb would you most like to thump!?!
Bang: Cheryl Cole
Thump: Alexandra Burke
