Jamie Redknapp says that Villa are contenders for a top four spot this season. The former Liverpool and Spurs midfielder and now Sky TV pundit wrote in his newspaper column:
'There is a ruthlessness to Villa and they are fit and strong too. They are young and hungry, a team packed with pace. They are a real threat to the old establishment at the top of the Barclays Premier League and a breath of fresh air for the rest of us. In their wonderful old stadium, they are the kings of the Midlands but it's time they looked for fresh battles. Their emergence has created an intriguing contest at the top of league.'
He also says the main competition is between English player packed Villa and the foreign 'flair and artistry of Arsenal adding that Barry is an important cog in the wheel but also the fact we have pace and again a knock at me no longer playing as he says they play with no Fear. Ok, ok, no need to rub it in, I'm approaching 40 and just starting to think that I might not actually play for Villa...!
He also compliments O'Neill when he told Ashley Young after the game v Everton 'You are a genius. Jamie said: 'There is no better feeling for a player....It made me wish I'd had the chance to play for O'Neill - there were nine Englishmen in his starting team at Hull on Tuesday night and one more sitting in the Sky box wishing he could roll back the years.'
He finishes with a real quote and a half! 'O'Neill has a magic about him, an ability to draw a reaction from a player. It sounds very simple but players want to play for him.'
I can't get my head around the press saying nice things about Villa and not about our past but our present and our future. Could be a great 2009!
