Graham Taylor & Dion Dublin Warnings To Villans
Former Villa boss Graham Taylor has told Ashley Young and Gabby Agbonlahor that next season they'll need to up their game.
The duo came first (Young) and runner up (Gabby) in the PFA Young Player Of The Year awards but Graham warns after such a swift rise to prominence, it is possible they could 'level out'.
Adding, 'I'm not saying that will definitely be the case but they can level out and defenders become more used to them. They are not as big a surprise to them anymore and they have learned how to play against them. Then they have to improve other aspects of their game to combat that.'
Meanwhile former Villa player Dion Dublin says there is a question mark over the Villa players next season adding that they will have to live up to the pressure brought about by the performances and 'success' they enjoyed last season.
'What I think it boils down to is the players being able to handle the pressure of success. Manchester United have got 20 players used to success, Villa haven’t got any players who are used to success, other than perhaps Stiliyan Petrov. Ashley Young and Gabby Agbonlahor are new into the top flight of football. They haven’t really been used to success.'
