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

Undercover Chix - Liverpool - Interview

Once again Chix goes undercover and speaks to Vital Liverpool's 'Aamir' about Pompey, Liverpool, curly perms and shell suits

Tell us a little about yourself (How long have you been supporting Liverpool, do you attend Anfield on a regular basis ..etc…)
I've been supporting Liverpool for as long as I can remember but not long enough to have seen us win a League title! I get to Anfield a few times a season but nowhere near as often as I would like.

What is your greatest moment as a Liverpool fan?
Without doubt, the 2005 Champions League win. The day had so many emotions. Some of them bad, but thankfully it ended in a superb way for us. What made it better was my Man Utd supporting friend was rolling on grass at half-time!

Who is your favourite Liverpool player of all time?
It has to be Steven Gerrard. He's got everything and gives 110% every time he steps onto the pitch. After him, it's Jamie Carragher who, like Gerrard, will do anything to make sure Liverpool win.

What do you consider to be the Liverpool's board priority ? Pursuit of the Title or the Champions League?
Rafa's priority this season is definitely to win the League but I'm not sure what the board's is! I think Gillett and Hicks just want to get as much money as they can out of the club so they can pay off their own debts.

Is a Benitez team capable of winning the Premiership?
Definitely and I think they've proved that this season. It's gonna be tough, and I'll be happy if we just seriously challenge for it but we've got something about us that we haven't had before under Rafa.

Early days I know, but who would you consider to be your best summer signing?
Robbie Keane has played very well but he hasn't quite been banging in goals so I'd go for Albert Riera. He terrorised Wes Brown on his debut and he looks like he could be a key player for us this season.

Peter Crouch or Robbie Keane ?
That's a difficult choice for me because Crouchy will always be one of my favourite players. Keane offers something different to Crouch and he's more deadly in front of goal, so I'd have to go for him.

If you could pick one Pompey player to play for Liverpool who would it be and why?
Crouchy. I would love to have him back at Liverpool. He's a legend in my eyes.

What advice would you give to Pompey fans travelling to Liverpool for the game ?
Enjoy it. Nothing much to add.

Other than 'Walk Alone' what's the one song we are guaranteed to hear from The Kop on Wednesday ?
There's the Fields Of Anfield Road, which is superb and then there's the Torres song which is quite possibly the greatest chant the world of football has ever seen!

Which Liverpool player that can do Pompey the most damage on Wednesday and why?
I'm going to go for Gerrard because Torres isn't likely to be 100% fit. Gerrard is, in my opinion, the most complete player in the world.

Conversely, which Pompey player do you feel can do Liverpool the most damage on Wednesday?
Again, I have to say Crouch. He'll be looking to prove a point to Rafa and if he's on form, he can do damage to the best defenders in the world.

Realistically, what do you expect the score to be?
I'm gonna go for 3-1 to us. I can't see you getting anything from Anfield after what's happened in the last couple of days with Redknapp, who has lost some of the respect I had for him by moving to Spurs despite claiming Pompey would be his last job.

What are your hopes for this season ? (What would you consider a success or disaster)
I just want us to seriously challenge for the title and have a good run in the Champions League and the FA Cup.

Where would you expect to see Pompey finish come May?
Two days ago, I would have said you'll challenge for Europe but now that Redknapp's gone, I think you'll, probably finish 9th or 10th.

Finally, have you got a curly perm and do you own a shell suit ?
No I haven't but even if I did, I wouldn't be telling you!


My thanks to Aamir for his thoughts and comments ahead of tomorrow's game and also to 'Chubby' for arranging the interview. Much appreciated fellas

So, Aamir reckons Liverpool will walk away with all three points and we will no longer make Europe

Your responses Ladies and Gentlemen please.

Well he sounds like a nice fella - why did you ask him if he had a perm and a shell suit Chix - you are rude:-) Interesting to hear him say he thought we would finish 9th or 10th now that Harry had gone. I'd settle for that after all this upset.

Aamir is a smasher Gandor .. well anybody is if they have to get strapped in and answer my intergotation.. I thought about the 'Do you have a cheap stereo' question but I'd already bought one off one of the Evertonians I'd spoken to earlier in the season ;) .. As I said in the article a BIG thanks to Aamir and Chubby for arranging this.. I just hope his prediction is wrong but Liverpool are the team to beat this year I think.. Would love to see Fergie and Phil's face if Rafa walks off with the title.. But tonight is our night I feel.. Tony off to a winning streak..

Now there's a question.. I'd love to see somebody other than Chelsea or Manchester United win it, but in all honesty can't see it going to anybody else. Arsenal don't have the strength in depth I think they need to fight on both the League and and the CL fronts. Liverpool have more depth but I worry that it they are top (even with a 8-9 point lead) they will bottle it with Chelsea or Man Utd breathing down their neck.. Manchester United are class and I think Berbatov is a quality player but I really can't see past Chelsea.. they smack of quality and can destroy teams very very easily (Pompey first day of the season as an example) My heart wants Arsenal, the romantic and historian in me wants Liverpool to finally do it. Nothing in me wants Man U to do it but we can write them off.. but my head says Chelsea.... All that and I didn't even mention Hull.. who are going to get spanked tonight 4, 5 or 6-0.. now I am sticking my neck out !... Villa 5th, Manchester City 6th,
