'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Fulham interview with Villa fan

1. How do you expect Villa to do at Craven Cottage?

I expect Villa to win as we are coming back fresh from a three week break and hopefully the players will be chomping at the bit to get stuck in and get some points on the table. I am mindful that Fulham are by no means a walkover though, if we aren't on our game we'll get punished without a doubt.

2. Is it a more pleasurable experience nestling next to the Thames than visiting our near neighbours - Chelsea?

To be fair, I'm not that bothered about opponents, only the mighty claret and blue, I guess since Chelsea bought the half the worlds footballers it isn't as pleasant a place to visit, but then again, we do ok!

3. Which of our players do you believe will give Villa trouble?

I might be wrong but I always look at Fulham as having a team ethic rather than necessarily individual players to get over worried about. I think Wayne Routledge looks a decent player and obviously if we give him the space Brian McBride is a threat.

4. Which of your players could give Fulham trouble?

John Carew looks a tip top signing and he has linked up brilliantly so far with our other new boy Ashley Young. The team is starting to take some semblance of shape and with some summer spending we could once again be edging towards the top part of the leagues next season. Still much to do but it is far more exciting for us Villa fans at the moment!

5. What`s it been like having an injection of cash from a rich owner?

Feels great. Now Ellis has gone a cloud really has lifted and Randy Lerner is more action than talk which suits the Villans very nicely. Our training ground is currently being re-developed and should be amongst the best in Europe and the spending on players has only just started, not that they are going to throw pathetic amounts about. Happy days, just got the buzz back after years of stagnation.

6. A prediction please?

6) 0-2 with Carew banging the goals in.

With thanks to JP Fear for answering the questions.
