Ashley Young - The Iceman!

Ashley Young - The Iceman!

The Ice Man Commeth

The Mirror has some interesting quotes from Ashley Young today who has spoken to the press about being kicked to high heaven.

Young, in the England squad for the games v Slovenia and the crunch tie against Croatia says he has to go home after each game with ice packs to put on wherever he has been kicked.

Ashley Young

Some say that Young dives too much, and maybe he does a bit BUT from where I sit by the touchline, you can hear the thuds from tackles flying in, if I was him I'd go over before being kicked to be honest!

Ash, who is hoping to increase his five cap total, said:

'That is something you are always going to have to deal with being kicked and you just have to bounce back from that. I am used to being kicked now I just get up and get on with it.'

He also feels that Villa have put behind them the Wigan 'performance' and says that Villa are now making a good start to the season with wins over Liverpool and Fulham to add to the home win v Rapid Vienna.

Just hope some clumsy player doesnt' take his 'treatment' too far and break the lads legs, some of the tackles on him are awful.

The lad needs to stop diving.Before he started that ***** he looked like he was going to be world class.Now instead of beating the man and looking to keep going he beats the man and waits for a chance to go down.Im not saying he doesn`t get kicked a bit but we all know the score if we are honest.
