Vital Villa Interviews 2012: benny003
benny003 is next for the Vital Villa interview.

1) When did you become a Villa fan and why?

Like most I was born into a Villa family,we used to live in Slade Road,Erdington, which if I remember correctly was about a 20-25 minute walk to Villa Park. So most of the time I went with my dad, or if he was at work one of my uncles would take me. Once I was taken to watch the bloose & I saw a young Trevor Francis score four goals, but I also remember having nightmares that night.

2) Paul Lambert? Your opinion please?

Very good choice in my opinion, he`s young,hungry,& knows what he wants,& seems to be making all the right noises at the moment. I think with the right backing will do an excellent job for us.

3) Best and worst moments of last season?

Worst moments were obviously the appointment of McNugget & the terrible news about Stan.But what hurt me the most was having to make a stand and refusing to travel to watch my beloved Villa. Most of you would probably say thats your own fault,but when you travel from Germany its alot of money to be giving out on the dross that we had to endure every week. Good moments I can`t think of any apart from McNugget`s sacking.

4) Your opinion of Randy Lerner and the board, can a decent season next season make up for last season?

I have said many times on here before that I do not like the man at all, he`s got as much of an idea about how to run a premier league football team as I have in piloting the next spaceship to the moon. You need to give a team like the Villa 100% of your time. So he needs to either get rid of the browns & concentrate fully on the Villa or sell up to someone who will. Plus for no reason what so ever the first thing he did was change the badge & replace it with a Lion without Claws, says it all really.

5) Which player/s should Villa sign this summer?

Basically I would leave that one up to Mr Lambert,he`s the man in charge & seems to know what he`s doing.

6) Which player/s should Villa get rid of this summer?

Hutton,Heskey,Dunne,Warnock, But once again I would trust the managers decision on that one as well.

7) Favourite current player?

I must admit I like watching some of the youngsters,so I`d have to say Ciaran Clarke & Andy Wiemann (good prospects me thinks)

8) Favourite all time player/s?

Paul McGrath,John Gidman, Andy Gray, Charlie Aitken, Chico Hamilton, Brian Little, Stan Collymore, Bruce Rioch, Andy Townsend,Ian Taylor, Martin Laursen, & I think if he had`nt of had his career so badly ended Luk Nilis would have become an other legend.

9) What do you expect us to do/finish this season assuming a decent transfer window with 25m or so spent?

Premier league: Top 8
FA Cup: 5th round
Carling: Winners (gut feeling)

10) You can ask yourself any question you want to about Villa and what is your answer?

Why do you love the Villa so much? Its in my blood & they are my religion.

11) Just to change the theme slightly, a snap shot of you outside of football, answer or ignore at your leisure:
(based on our WHO ARE YOU thread!!!)

a) Which celebrity/s would you most like to meet and why? Doug Ellis to ask him why he sacked Big Ron, because even today that is to me one of the major turning points in our history.

b) Age 51

c) Location: Germany

d) Favourite alcoholic drink: Carling cold, fosters ice

e) Favourite non-alcoholic drink: Milk,Lemonade

f) Favourite Film/s: Gladiator, King Arthur, Quadrophinia, Skum

g) Favourite TV Show/s: Only fools & horses, Blackadder, Men behaving badly

h) Music?: Coldplay, Stereophonics, UB40, Dean Martin, The Holte End in full voice.

i) Best ever moment in your life: The birth of my two gorgeous daughters, Rotterdam 1982

j) Ambitions: To win the Lottery

k) Wise words: He who dares, wins
