Ahead of tonight's clash with Birmingham, Keith Ingham spoke with James Butlet. A massive BlueNose who is weary ahead of this seasons challenges.
Firstly how long have you been a 'Bluenose'?
About 25 years. My first match was a pre season against Norwich in 93/94. We lost.
Over the years you've had some great player's could you mention a few that were your favourite?
Christophe Dugarry for the flair he bought.
Best era since you started following them?
For me the early 2000s simply because i followed them up and down the country, Grimsby on a Friday night was grim though.
Both our clubs have changed over the past year, do you think your 'on the up'?
Apart from being relegated we couldn't have gotten any worse. An owner in jail, Lee clark as manager, we can only get better from here.
What are your thoughts on Harry Redknapp?
Not a fan of the man at all, but he knows football well enough and will hopefully bring some stability to the club.
A player or players you think your season will depend on?
With half a new squad coming and going its hard to say. But our strikers need to fire as that has been our problem for a few years.
One for the future?
John Terry is at your biggest rivals, do you think he'll make a difference there?
It's certainly not started very well for the Villa. On the pitch no, but with the young players around him yes. Glad he never signed for us to be brutally honest. Big wages for the Championship
Who are your Top two and Playoff winners and your three to go down?
Hull 1st, Cardiff 2nd. Play offs. Leeds.
Going down - Bristol City, Millwall and Villa (i hope haha)
Prediction and Scorers for tonight's match?
2-1 Leeds. Roofe 2. Gallagher 1.
We'd like to thank James for taking his time to complete our questions and wish him the best of luck for the season, in which could be a hard fight to progress under Harry Redknapp.
