'If It's Football, It's Vital'

A Good Week For Barry

Barry Bannan hasn't had a bad time of it lately has he. An impressive performance against CSKA, a nice loan spell at Derby, scoring on his debut and now he's been called into the Scottish U21 side.

Bannan has been called up to Billy Starks squad for the double header against Albania in the UEFA European U21 championship qualifiers.

Scotland travel to the Ruzhdi Bizhuta Stadium in Elbasan, Albania for the first game on March 28, before the second game at Falkirk Stadium on April 1.

Onwards and upwards for the little man.

Bruce Rioch became captain of Scotland, so lets hope Villa can provide another one - might as well be ambitious in our hopes. Alan McInally, Allan Evans, Des Bremner, Charlie Aitken, Johny McLeod, Alex Cropley, Andy Gray - and lots of others - but too few in recent years. We used to have a good scouting nework with youth links north of the border, but there have been a dearth of good players from Scotland compared to the 60s, 70s and 80s. High hopes for BB though.

I've watched him progress from the youth team through the reserves, and now here he stands on the fringe of the first team. And deservedly so, I'd like to see him go out on loan, preferably to a Championship team if possible, that would certainly help his development. Small in stature, but with a huge heart. He's a scrapper, gives his all, and isn't lacking in the skill factor either.

Now there's a name to conjure with stennyvilla, Bruce Rioch, he of the golden left foot. One of my early Villa Park favourites, one very talented footballer. Scored some right beauties too. A free kick effort into the Holte End net against the then mighty Leeds United in a League Cup tie, readily comes to mind.
