Ashley Young Looking To Make Impact

Ashley Young Looking To Make Impact

Ashley Young has spoken about his big money move and says 'The fee doesn't worry me.'

Bet the increase in wages doesn't either, God I wish I was young. Scrub that, I wish I was young and talented. Actually, sod that, just wish I was loaded!!

The England Under-21 added 'The manager agreed that fee with Watford. He has put faith in me, he is very ambitious, and so am I. I am just looking to pay him back. I'm hoping to make my debut tonight and they don't come any bigger than Newcastle at St James' Park- hopefully I will play and I just can't wait for it. Moving to a new club, you want to be starting in the team - that's the main thing for me, really. I always set myself goals, but I never let anyone know about them, I keep them to myself.'

'But I don't think it will be hard to settle here. Everyone seems happy and bubbly and it seems a great place to be. I just can't wait to get out there and start playing.'

Happy and bubbly, how times have changed at Villa eh?

Young also explained the reason he chose Villa ahead of a host of suitors: 'The ambition of Martin O'Neill and the club stood out and I'd love to be a part of that. When O'Neill first tried to sign me I put the feelers out to find out what he was like and I never heard a bad word said about him, or the club, so it wasn't a hard decision to make. The general feeling I got from speaking to everybody, especially the Watford manager, was that this was the right move for me.'

Watched the highlights on MOTD he looked as if he was well up for the game, Carew looked classy and was unlucky not to join Young on the score sheet.

Young looks a superb player he could well be the 20+ goals a season man we've been craving! He seemed to have natural poachers insticts and every shot was on target.

Watching him make his debut last night, the one thing that really hit me was, 'How the hell haven't I heard a lot more about this guy before'? He looked sheer class. Teamed up very well with the impressive although obviously not fully fit John Carew. Yes, I'd say that young Ashley is destined to be a big Villa Park favourite.

he looked a quality player didn't he? Certainly doesn't seem to lack in confidence. World at his feet, lets hope he can realise his and our dreams at Villa.
