I Only Wanted Nuggets and Chips

I Only Wanted Nuggets and Chips

18-year-old Isaiah Osbourne, who made his debut for Aston Villa on Saturday, has spoken of his delight at playing at Villa Park, especially as he didn't realise he was one of the subs!

He said: 'It was great to get on the pitch to make my debut at 18. My friends and neighbours were at the game but I think my dad was watching on TV. When Martin O'Neill announced the subs, I didn't realise he had mentioned me at first and I had to ask somebody else and they told me.'

'To be honest, I turned up on Saturday expecting to watch the game and to get some nuggets and chips! But I wasn't nervous once I got out onto the pitch. I have played with the players in training and they helped me.'

Nuggets and chips? Nice to see the health food revolution is in full swing!!!

He continued: 'I had hoped to have been more involved last season but that chance didn't come. Now I am looking to show the gaffer what I can do. It's taken a while for me to make an impression but I'm glad to have done so at last.'

'I want to be top of the tops and be the next Patrick Vieira. I want to be the next Vieira for Aston Villa. He is a legend Hopefully I can get there very soon.'

Martin O'Neill said: 'Isaiah has done very well indeed. His hero is Patrick Vieira - not a bad one to aspire to! I like him. He's really decent. He's learning his trade here and he is a good lad to. His whole approach to the game is refreshing. He's got good natural ability which is encouraging. It is very early for him but just keep an eye out for him. I think he can do a bit. Hopefully they are not famous last words and over the course of the next couple of seasons, I think there could be a player there.'

He certainly looked confident on Saturday during his brief appearance. Good luck to him.

I don't know a lot about this guy, at least O'Neill gave him a chance. Gabi was wasted the last 2 seasons playing reserves and youth team...

Dont think that Gabby was anywhere near ready for first team football the previous past two seasons to be fair leelindsay. He was still very much learning his trade, and he hardly set the world on fire when he went out on loan.
