It was only a matter of time. Well done Ash.

Well done. Young will be our player of the season, I know it's early but this lad has improved imensly over the last few months, with both us and the U21's

Only a matter of time before we have another 3-4 names up there. C'mon the villa!!

I think Young shoudl start!! He's a lot better on the left wing than Joe "I'm going to beat a man then cut back and pass it backwards" Cole. At least Ashley gets to the byline and gets some balls into the box!! Baird an international standard RB had a torrid time against him!! Israel would be seriously scared of his pace!!

Fantastic news for all three of them, although McClaren will probably stick Ashley in Goal.

When Young signed I was saying what a terrible waste of money he was shows what I know

Well done lads!! Excellent - now get Carson signed up permanantly!

Sign Jermaine Defoe today and we'll have FOUR players in the squad!! Now there's a thought, eh Martin? Congrats to all three Villans.
