Vital Villa Interviews 2012: tvrwhitey
1) When did you become a Villa fan and why?
1975 - was always a Leeds fan from the early 70's - well I was only 6yrs old and no father influence on who to support and you have to admit the Billy Brenmer, Peter Lorimar, Trevor Cherry, Gray brothers, Allan Clarke etc days were good. However my mate at school starting supporting the villa and i followed and went to my first Villa match in 1977 close season - a testimonial for Walsall's Physio at the old fellows park ground. I still remember Brian Little scoring and John Gidman - we won 3-2
2) Paul Lambert? Your opinion please?
I'm really happy now. Wanted OGS but really happy with the positive news ive seen coming out the club since his arrival. Can't wait for the season to start.
3) Best and worst moments of last season?
McLeish signing.... McLeish leaving....my first visit to the Emirates - lovely ground
4) Your opinion of Randy Lerner and the board, can a decent season next season make up for last season?
Has made some mistakes, but doesn't everyone? very positive move with Lambert lets hope he has learnt his lesson.
5) Which player/s should Villa sign this summer?
I'm really keen on them signing Andy Carroll. I think him and Bent up front with Holman in the hole behind them would be perfect and then bring on Gabby, Weimann or the Fonz as an impact substitute. So much better than the Heskey option
6) Which player/s should Villa get rid of this summer?
The whole of the back four :- Warrnock, Collins, Dunne and Hutton. Maybe even cash in on Gabby and Fonz - IF we can get Carroll
7) Favourite current player?
Petrov and Gardner. Loving the new signings though - but to early in the day to name them as favourites, but I am really impressed with what I have seen of Holman, Karim and Lowton. So relieved we resigned Guzan too.
8) Favourite all time player/s?
Andy Gray, Allan Evans, Dwight Yorke, Paul Merson...... and despite he was lambasted .... Stan Collymore
9) What do you expect us to do/finish this season assuming a decent transfer window with £25m or so spent?
FA Cup: Quarters
10) You can ask yourself any question you want to about Villa and what is your answer?
Will we sign Van Persie this season ..... Yes he is begging to come to Villa (I'm a secret Arsenal fan too - lol)
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? Kelly Brook - She is destined to Marry me - lol. Jon Bon Jovi - he can be the best man.
