Vital Villa Interviews 2012: Beejay
Beejay is next for the Vital Villa interview.1) When did you become a Villa fan and why?
Whole family of Villa Fans - Dad came over from Ireland in early 50's, followed the Villa, home & away (in those days!) and passed it onto myself and 3 brothers (now including sons/daughters/nieces/nephews/grandkids)......so I was a Villa fan from mid sixties, first games we lost 4-2 to Everton & Small Heath at Villa Park!! 2) Paul Lambert? Your opinion please?
I personally wanted Ian Holloway!!.....however the list was pretty long and providing we didn't go with another of Fergies cast offs (i.e. Ince/Bruce/Robson), I'm pretty happy with Paul Lambert.......young/dynamic, he's had an impact amongst the fans already which is good thing after last couple of season. Seems to be a real feel good factor around the place at the moment. 3) Best and worst moments of last season?
A) Chelsea Away
B) Too many to mention to be honest - teams will always lose games, it was the manner/tactics used to lose the games that p****d us all off4) Your opinion of Randy Lerner and the board, can a decent season next season make up for last season?
I thought when he took over it was breath of fresh air. There's a lot of good been undone with the Houllier/McLeish appointments. Appointing Lambert goes so way to healing those wounds. Interesting to see if PL really does have a war chest of £20-£25mill....... 5) Which player/s should Villa sign this summer?
Personally, I'd look at the Dutch/Belgium market.......technically good players, cheaper than most.
Try & resign Cuellar if possible
Other than that the Championship or Rangers.......Papac at Rangers would be a good replacement for Warnock, I'd also take a punt on McGregor (if SG is being replaced as number One).......Jordan Rhodes as striker back-up/Snodgrass at Leeds
One marquee signing: Shawcross at Stoke - build from the back! £12-£15mill it would cost....Stoke don't have/want to sell 6) Which player/s should Villa get rid of this summer?
Delfonso/Bannan/Hutton/Warnock/Collins/Albrighton......I think Ireland will be sold.....cant see him fitting in with Lamberts thinking 7) Favourite current player?
Darren Bent or Shay Given 8) Favourite all time player/s?
Paul Merson 9) What do you expect us to do/finish this season assuming a decent transfer window with £25m or so spent?
Premier Top 8
FA Cup: Winners
Carling: Winners10) You can ask yourself any question you want to about Villa and what is your answer?
What really happened between MON and Randy/Board?
MON couldn't/wouldn't get his head around the 'sell to buy policy.....fell out with CEO, called Villa's bluff and ended up quitting11) Just to change the theme slightly, a snap shot of you outside of football, answer or ignore at your leisure:
