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

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

Probably when I was born, but definitely when my grandfather and father started taking me to Villa Park when I was 5 or 6 years of age.

2) Paul Lambert? Your opinion please?

Seems like a great choice - I love the fact he did his coaching badges in Germany, which must give him a fresh perspective on the game. I also like the fact that he learned his managerial trade in the lower divisions, and that he worked his way up.

3) Best and worst moments of last season?

Best moment was McLeish getting the boot. Worst was Tottenham away - shameful.

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

Even though he cocked up the last two managerial appointments and didn't control O'Neill's overspending particularly well, I think he is a great chairman. We're lucky to have him.

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

I'd never heard of Holman, El Ahmadi or Lowton - so I really don't know enough to say who we should bring in. But I would like one real 'character' signing that all the fans could make their hero.

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

Given, Hutton, Dunne, Collins, Warnock - that would be a good start, and I think that for the sake of his own career, Gabby should leave as well.

7) Favourite current player?

Barry Bannan/Gary Gardner

8) Favourite all time player/s?

Charlie Aitken, Bruce Rioch, Brian Little, Andy Gray, Dennis Mortimer

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

Premier: 8th
FA Cup: could win it
Carling: could win it

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

Will we ever be a top four side? I live in hope.

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? Robin Williams - funniest man in the world

b) Age 56

c) Location: Tokyo, Japan

d) Favourite alcoholic drink: Irish whiskey

e) Favourite non-alcoholic drink: Perrier

f) Favourite Film/s: Godfather 1 and 2, Memories of a Murder

g) Favourite TV Show/s: Breaking Bad, Sopranos, Mad Men

h) Music?: Ska, Reggae, Motown

i) Best ever moment in your life: Birth of my son - a new Villa fan

j) Ambitions: See Villa win a major trophy with my son

k) Wise words: It was like that when I got here

Japan? Do you fry back to Brum much? How much do you miss Virra? And you are 56? You rove Virra ronnnggg time. In all seriousness. Have you met any other Villans over there? Not sure if we have a Japanese supporters club? You could become the founding president of our new branch?

I know a couple of Villa fans in Tokyo, but am not sure if that would be enough to form a supporters club branch! Villa have played twice in Tokyo - 1982 and again in 1993. I saw the game in 1993 and there were a lot of Villa fans present, so perhaps there is potential for a Villa/Japan supporters club.
