'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Davies Wants To Win A Header!

After breaking into the Villa team and scoring his first goal, I must admit it's nice to not here his next milestone be an England call up and or anything as advanced as that, he simply wants to keep a clean sheet against Reading on Saturday.

Speaking on the official site, he said:

'We haven't managed to keep a clean sheet since I have been in the team.

'That's my next objective and hopefully it will come against Reading.

'Reading have been leaking a few and scoring a few.

'We need to concentrate at the back and hopefully keep their attacking players at bay. That's what we want to do as a defensive unit. We need to concentrate on the task in hand.

'They must play open, attacking football so we need to be on our toes.

'But if we can defend well, we have people up front in John, Gabby and Ashley who can hurt them.'

Curtis is also full of praise for Martin Laursen and he believes that they are both starting to strike up quite a decent understanding with each other.

'I'm getting used to playing with Martin. You have to understand his movements and what he's going to do.

'You know he's going to want to win a lot of the headers even if they are on my side of the defence.

'You have to be aware of that, wait for the shout and watch him get his big head on the ball.

'It's adjusting to the other's way of playing. I am pleased the way it is going.'

Martin Laursen greedy is defence, I'd never noticed!

After the Man U defeat a clean sheet and another three points would work wonders for the soul, but I'm actually wondering if I should've twisted this article to be about Davies next milestone being to beat Laursen to a header in defence.

I really like this guys approach and attitude, I find it refreshing. Quality central defender too, his premiership performances to date have been eye-opening. Think we've got a good 'un on our hands chaps.

Still has a lot to learn, certainly not the finished article. Hope he is definitely ours, and wont be returning to The Hawthorns come seasons end. Still think we're not getting the full story on this one.
