Routledge On Target For Reserves

Routledge On Target For Reserves

Villa reserves crushed Derby 6-0 last night.

Guess who scored for Villa? Yes, new boy Wayne Routledge, a January signing from Spurs. He also helped set up a goal. Apparently the goal was a corker as well. A first team start on Saturday for him perhaps?

James Collins also scored in the first half, then Nathan Delfouneso* (who has just signed his first professional contract with Villa), Marc Albrighton, Nathan Baker and Andreas Weimann got in on the act in the second half.

*Summed up by Meakers in the Vital Villa message board: Nathan Nelfouneso , England youth international, quite tall, quick , quick feet and an eye for goal, a different style to Gabby and a much better player overall than Luke Moore.

VILLA: Taylor; Hogg, Lund, Lichaj, Baker; Osbourne, Routledge (Hofbauer, 82), Salifou, Bannan; Collins (Albrighton, 72), Delfouneso (Weimann, 72). Subs: Bellon, Bevan, Hofbauer, Weimann, Albrighton.

Have been hearing good things about Nathan for sometime now. Good to hear he has signed a pro contract. Looking forward to seeing him in the first XI. Oh and well done Wayne. Lets hope he breaks into the first XI soon. Surely it can't be too hard to displace Mr Petrov?!?

I'm as bored with people saying it was only one game as i am with people saying this could be the start of our slump. How can we know until we're a few games into what may or may not be said slump. In regards to young Nathan, he scored 45+ goals on my Football Manager game in the under 18's two seasons running, and as we all know, that's the same as real life. :P

Why wasn't salifou even in the reserves team? If he's only got a contract till summer, i bet he wont even get a game at VP. Sad really.
