Young Will Become Big Player

Young Will Become Big Player

John Carew has thanked the Villa fans for the reception he has received since joining us as part of a swap deal with Milan Baros moving to Lyon and also asks us to give Ashley Young time to settle.

'The fans have been fantastic and I really enjoy playing in front of them. They give me such great backing that I want to give something back by playing well and scoring goals. That's what I'm here for. But I don't think about being a hero. I just want to go on the pitch and play my best. Once the game starts, we are 11 players who have to work together and take care of each other.'

Adding: 'I've settled in well, and I'm really enjoying myself here. I want to do well and I'm looking forward to the matches which are coming up....It would be nice if we could get into the top five or six over the next couple of years and play in the UEFA Cup.'

He also says of fellow new boy Ashley Young, the 'doubters' must give the England U-21 former Watford player time.

He said: 'Ashley will become an important player for the club. He has plenty of football in his head and he will be a great player for sure, but he is a player who needs time.'

Martin O'Neill has also called for patience saying he will become 'a big player in time' adding the transfer fee is a 'burden and it is too much to ask him to 'come straight in and be the complete player. Historically Villa are a bigger club than Watford. To come here, and have all that expectation thrown on him, is a lot for him at the moment. But he will rise to the challenge. I have no doubt about that.'

I hope MON uses the run-in to experiment with the front line. Young looked out of sorts playing wide against Liverpool - put him back in the middle, I say. And what about trying out the Carew/Angel partnership ? JPA's an experienced and intelligent forward. He'd thrive alongside the big guy!

Don't think young will ever become as big as John Carew, that man really is frigging massive, bet he eats more than 3 weetabix!

4-4-2 has to be the way to go against Everton. Whether it be Luke or Ashley up front with Carew. Don't fancy Angel. Too slow. I know Cahill has commented that the defence is looking solid. I'm not surprised as there were 10 players behind the ball! We have to be more adventurous next game at home.

Couldn't agree more about giving young Ashley plenty of time to find his feet and settle in. There were murmours of discontent in the last couple of games about his performance, but hellfire, we have on our hands here a highly talented individual, one of the most sought after young players in the premiership, and one who has the best part of his career ahead of him. He's British too and thats a plus as far as I'm concerned. It was a big move for him for a variety of reasons, and he's obviously trying, perhaps over eagerly, to impress his new team mates, and the supporters. We've seen enough flashes of his outstanding ability to know that we've an exciting young talent on our hands. Lets give the lad a break, and more importantly, time to establish himself here at Villa Park. The last thing in the world that he needs right now is for the supporters to start getting on his back.

Exactly iomvilla, starting with three points against Everton on Monday next. The lads need our support and 100% backing. We have a testing few games coming up.
