He told Sky Sports News: 'It is frustrating when you're not playing, but Villa have been doing so well this year it's just nice to be part of that really.

Former Aston Villa defender Martin Keown says Villa fans will need to show some patience adding, 'They have come an awful long way from David O’Leary being in charge to where they are now.

Vital Villan: Nathan Delfouneso played 90 minutes for the England U19 side last night and believes the experience will serve him well. The young striker put in a 'lively' performance in the 0-0 friendly clash with the Czech Republic last night, as anyone who turned up at Bescot last night will know - so did anyone? Speaking on the official site, Delboy said: 'It's important to play against players at this level and it's good to go and test yourself on a personal level. 'These games help your development as a player. Obviously international football is a bit different to club football. You are playing against different cultures and different types of footballers, so it's all part of your education.' Full article: Click Here

Good to see that Nathan Delfoueno played 90 minutes for the England U19 side, and quite rightly believes that the experience will serve him well. Bags of potential, next season will hopefully see him make the breakthrough.

Always interesting to hear the comments and observations of Tony Morley. A genuine Villan, but he's never blinded by the claret and blue spiel. He says what he thinks, and as such, is always well worth listening to.
