Getting to Know.....HDM

Getting to Know.....HDM
In what is to be a regular, hopefully weekly event at Vital Blackburn, i will be sending some questions of to a random VBER, hopefully pointing out various ideas and some small facts about the Vber them self.

Firstly we start with the boss, HDM. In the next few weeks, I will cover all the Site Editors, before hitting the streets and interviewing as many members as possible.


HDM, you are the leader of the crew, and deservedly, the first person to be interviewed by myself. How did you come abouts being the boss?

I might be the leader, but without everyone else there would be nothing would there. How id it begin, some 18-months ago (around August 2006 I think) I came across Vital Football, after going to Vital Blackburn I saw that it was advertising for an Editor so I applied for it and the rest as they say is history!!!


What do you think of Vital Blackburn at the moment. Is it going forward? What would you like to see more of?

If you look at where it was when I took over there were probably two or three members, and they only had a couple of points each, it has been progress ever since and Vital Blackburn is gaining in strength. The only thing that I have noticed is there is a divide, people either post in the forum or post on the homepage, apart from a few that do both it seems to be one or the other so it would be nice to see more in both areas.


Rovers are currently in 9th place, a few points behind the Euro Spots, What do you think of our season so far, and how will the rest of the season pan out.

I think this is quite possibly the best Premier League ever with soooo many teams evenly matched, so although I would be happier if we were slightly higher I think things are going along nicely at the moment. It's going to be a battle but I've predicted a seventh place finish, and at the moment I think that is remaining most likely. With an Intertoto Cup place applied for that SHOULD be enough to qualify for that, if needed?!?!


We all know Sparky is a talented manager. However if you had a choice, with a full strength team available, what would be your line-up.

Thanks for putting me on the spot!!! I think it would be Bradders, Stevie W, God (Ryan Nelsen), The Wall (Christopher Samba), Emerton, MGP, Dunny, The Maestro (Tugay), Bents, Santa Cruz, Derbs


If you had the opportunity to sign any one player in the world, who would you sign up and why?

Another tough one, thanks dude!!! I think we are lacking in midfield so I would say Stevie G, as he is probably one of the best central midfielders in the world.


Finally, who will win the premiership and who do you think will get relegated?

I think that Arsenal showed against us on Monday that they can now win when they aren't at their best, and can also stand up to the challenge now, but when they are at their best they'll beat ANYONE, so I'm going for them to beat Manure to the Title. Relegated, well Derby are obviously down, I think Fulham will join them but I don't know the third and final team, I really couldn't say at the moment.


Thanks HDM, who is up next, we will wait and see.

I would like to thank Pompeyrug, The boss of the Vital Portsmouth site for allowing myself to alter an original idea of their site and providing some tips. Cheers Matey
