Curtis Davies Looking Ahead

Curtis Davies Looking Ahead

Curtis Davies says he doesn't regret the harsh words he came out with about himself following his debut! The Baggies on loan defender, who tore strips off himself following our cup exit v Leicester City said:

He says he had good feedback and support following his comments but also some still criticised the way he played which he says is fine 'because it was still me out there kicking a ball, and not very well.'

LOL, you have got to admire his honesty, not many players slate themselves quite like this?!

'I don't regret what I said because that's what I felt. I come out and talk like that to clear my mind, get it out in the open and wash it away. I've moved past that now. I'm just looking to challenge people, get my next chance and prove that I am a good player, good enough to play for Villa and hopefully, one day, for England.'

Adding, 'I can only speak for myself: I'm direct in what I believe and what I say and I just try to be honest because people can see for themselves what you've done on the pitch or off the pitch. I'm my harshest critic, maybe over harsh, but that's the way I was brought up. That's the way I'll always be.'

His initial evaluation of his performance: Curtis Davies Savages Villa Debut

Be interesting to see when he gets his Villa chance, with Laursen playing so well and Zat Knight doing very little wrong, he might have a wait? Also, how happy will he be remaining on the bench? Hmmmm!

He'll be o.k. Put his nightmare debut behind him, another chance will come along, and he has to be ready to take it. He's rated highly by a lot of supposed experts, so he shouldn't be judged on that one poor League Cup showing.

I dont think his debut was a disaster,the only person I heard say he had a nightmare was him.

Your comments surprise me Pking. Were you there? No disrespect to you or CD, but his performance was way below what was required, and the vast majority of supporters in attendance were in full agreement re. that very fact.

Sometimes players try too hard - especially young players. We/he should just put it down to experience and get over it.
