Villa Defender Ridgewell At Top
Liam Ridgewell is proving a good few doubters wrong as he currently tops the Actim Index chart for defenders.
Actim is the official players ratings system of the Premiership and Ridgewell has more than earnt his place at the top and hopefully he'll build on that and stay there!
Many fans lost faith in Ridgewell for a few displays last season but this season he has served a timely reminder that if we want the youth players to come through, we've got to show patience. Mind you, I'm being a bit of a smart arse, as I was laughed at when I said he is a future Villa captain, he could also go on and represent England if he carries on progressing!
Ridgewell contribution includes one goal, two shots, twenty tackles, six clearances, five interceptions, five blocks, and 25 passes in 380 minutes.
Villa skipper Gareth Barry is currently ranked the sixth best midfielder, further strengthening his claim for an England re-call.
