Petrov - The Best Still To Come
Martin O'Neill has said that Villa fans have yet to see the best of new signing Stiliyan Petrov.
Martin O'Neill told the official site: 'The performances against West Ham and Chelsea in the league showed us what Stiliyan can do - they're big sides and they were big games.'
Adding: 'I think he is just settling in and once he gets his bearings here he will be absolutely fine. He knows himself. He will surge back again. For the sort of level that he has set himself, he will want to get back to that as quickly as possible. I feel at sometimes in the game, my own view is that, I think he is passing it rather too easily rather than bursting forward with the ball which is his strength.'
'I am all for keeping things simple for a while, but if he bursts into their half then I feel he could go a wee bit further because I know he is capable of doing it.'
I must admit his debut was stunning, he was sooooo close to chipping the Hammers keeper and it would have right royally topped a great debut where he as good as bossed the game. He hasn't looked quite the same since but I'm sure, as he has shown what he can do, he'll get there!
