Stiliyan Petrov says he is delighted that he has moved to Aston Villa from Celtic and says he is 'very excited' about the future.
He told the official site speaking of this season:
'We've played quite well all season, but too many matches just haven't gone our way and that's what we need to put right.' Adding on a personal note, 'This season has been really amazing for me on a personal level and I'm glad I made the move to Aston Villa last summer. This club is definitely heading in the right direction and I'm very excited about the future.'
He also says the arrival of John 'the hulk' Carew and Ashley 'the, errm........' Young will reap rewards for now and into the coming seasons.
'John Carew and Ashley Young are playing really well together and they suit each other as an attacking pair. The fans have taken to them straight away and I think we'll see a lot more goals from them before the end of the season. We've got a team full of pace now, which is very important in a league like the Premiership, because it's very, very fast.'
'There are always areas we can improve on, but it's great that we move the ball around the pitch so quickly.'
I'd say just about every area in the team needs improving if we truly are (and I have no doubt we are) trying to get to the next level. Some of our players are good Premiership players but aren't Champions League or Uefa Cup quality surely? Certainly not top 4-5 quality anyway.
Also surprised he has said the season has been amazing for him personally, he has certainly not shown that on the pitch, apart from his great debut and a few glimpses in other matches. Hopefully he'll soon settle and do the business, the quality is there but the performances haven't been this season and at times I've forgotten he was on the pitch!
