Vital Villa Interviews 2012: Villan444
1) When did you become a Villa fan and why?
Was given a Villa kit for a Manager that I played for as he was die hard Villa. I spent most of my youth playing rather than supporting and don't live near any teams so it stuck and grew on me.
2) Paul Lambert? Your opinion please?
Excellent, just what we need. All the good things have been said and I agree entirely. Can't think of any negatives about him!!
3) Best and worst moments of last season?
Worst was deciding not to renew my ST. No maybe worst was realising that I was correct not to renew and watching the embarrassment of an excuse for a football team that we became under McThousandExpletives.
Best was him leaving.
4) Your opinion of Randy Lerner and the board, can a decent season next season make up for last season?
Still very apprehensive about Randy. There's no way that he could've kept Eckscuses and it's not as though they worked out that they made the wrong decision. The lack of ST sales, negativity, booing at certain games and general laughing stock that we were did for him. Randy didn't wake up one day and suddenly work realise that he made a mistake.
Still, I never bear grudges so he can win me round.
5) Which player/s should Villa sign this summer?
A player is only as good as his manager IMHO so names are just names. If they are willing and able to learn and develop and capable of playing in the manner desired, then that's what we need.
6) Which player/s should Villa get rid of this summer?
Bannan and Hutton. I'm not being anti-Scottish but neither is up to it for different reasons. Dunne maybe past it too but would keep Collins. He wants to play and isn't just messing around for the sake of it. 6 months time we may see him back to his best. You need a 'put your head where it hurts and clear your lines ' defender anyway. Just wouldn't give him the ball to pass out from defence!!!!
7) Favourite current player?
Couldn't bear to watch us much this year but love Delph's commitment. Wiemann and Herd also.
8) Favourite all time player/s?
God, Daley, Dalian, Merson, Bosnich, Angel.
9) What do you expect us to do/finish this season assuming a decent transfer window with £25m or so spent?
Premier Top half
FA Cup: depends on draw
Carling: as above
10) You can ask yourself any question you want to about Villa and what is your answer?
Q: Why don't we ever seem able to bring players through to that extra level??
A: Wish I knew
11) Just to change the theme slightly, a snap shot of you outside of football, answer or ignore at your leisure:

c) Location: Bucks
d) Favourite alcoholic drink: Beer, Red Wine, Brandy, Port.
