Regis Tips Davies As Future Captain

Regis Tips Davies As Future Captain

Cyrille Regis has told the official site that he believes Curtis 'the Terminator' Davies has all the necessary attributes to become a future Villa captain.

Good ol Cyrille is starting to become a regular fixture on the official site thesedays, and it's hard to disagree with most of what he says.

Regis followed Davies' progress as captain whilst he was at the Baggies and he thinks, for a player of his age, his maturity, honesty and obvious quality make him an excellent candidate and option for Martin O'Neill next time he needs to pick a club captain.

'Curtis didn't have the best of starts with injury and also the game against Leicester set him back. But he has come through that and that shows his strength of character.

'He has gone out and proved himself and he seems to be developing now. He is definitely someone who will get better.

'He seems very mature - on and off the field. West Brom gave him the captaincy quite early in his career and these leadership qualities were recognised by Bryan Robson.

'I think Curtis is a natural leader and I'm sure he will step up to the role at Villa one day. He is responsible and leads from the front. He has that mentality.

'He has the ability, pace and enthusiasm and importantly, a desire to learn. You can't underestimate that!

'The great thing for Curtis, too, is that he is playing for a side that is doing well and for a manager who motivates him - you can't get much better than that.'

Must admit I've not considered Davies as captain before, but it's certainly a good shout when he regains full sharpness and fitness. We've seen how talented a centre half he is and we know we missed him when went out with injury.

It's a credit to both the staff, Bodymoor Heath and Davies' own determination that he is playing in the side currently when he should still be sitting at home twiddling his thumbs.

You can't train that kind of attitude, you either have it or you don't. Davies certainly does and he's going to be a massive asset to us once he's properly fit again.

You'll get no argument from me on this one, he is a class act, expecting great things from this young man.

Agree 100% with what Steff has to say. Curtis is class, its written all over him. He's definitely a young man going places.

Will he be captain of this great club of ours though, as Big Cyrille suggests he might? Probably, if we're successful over the next few seasons and we can keep a hold of the lad.

Be interesting to see how/where Carlos Cuellar fits into Martins plans. No doubt most would suggest he replace Curtis, but somehow I dont think it will be as clear-cut as that.
