MON Says Young Exclusion Might Do Him Good

MON has said in the Express & Star that Ashley Young not being called up to the England squad might this time be a good thing as the player can 'recharge his batteries'.

He ays although the player might not agree, it 'may actually do him a bit of good.' Explaining 'It is a chance to recharge and have a proper break, which he hasn’t had yet. He has played a lot of games for us and he will come back fresh and raring to go again. Whatever people might think he has still been doing splendidly for us and while not every single thing he has done has come to fruition it doesn’t matter, he is so important for us.'

Adding that obviously the winger will be disappointed but at his age there is 'plenty of time for him' to push his credentials.

Lets face it, Ash hasn't hit anywhere near top form this season and so if he'd automatically been selected for the England squad it might have done more harm than good?

He also says that Ash gets a rough ride on the pitch as opponents crunch in on him but says he'll have to learn to ride with the punches and get on with it!

i think Monny is right and a fully recharged Ash is definitely what we will need against a very strong Chelski team at the moment. With how much Bosingwa likes to push forward a fit and raring to go Ash should cause all sorts of problems for them on the break

I do think Ash has made a rod for his own back by settling & playing so well almost immediately in his villa career. It was inevitable he was gonna get a tougher time this season & that his form at some stage would fluctuate. He does get doubled up on if not tripled at times so that will tell you how other managers view him. Just wish he would stop rolling around the floor so much & get back to whipping in them dead balls like we know he can. Ash has time & will improve as the season goes on & the mini break will defo do him good, he just needs to buckle down again & it will work out for him. Class is permanent dont they say!!!!!

Nothing off the manager about him being a diving *****t then. Denial is a great thing

Yup, at his age he is still learning and things progressed maybe a bit too quickly. He'll get it back though. He does go down easily TuBBz but then again, at times theydon't half hack at him, being on the touchline you sometimes see the fouls slightly differently or hear the crunching tackles, at other times he 'anticipates' them and goes down before they happen! lol

Must admit fear, on the times I have swapped the Holte for a touchline view in the Trinity you really get to see what a hard time he gets with regards to people kickin lumps out of him. Having been within close quarters of him its also very noticeable that he's not much bigger than my 12 year old son stature wise. 2 pieces of string dangling out of them shorts!!!

absolutely, where I sit you get the full 'vibe' of the speed they are running, how hard they fall and get tackled etc. You see the grimaces. You do miss out on the bigger picture sitting higher but I do love it where I am! Agree re: his stature, he really is just a slip of a lad, very thin ankles etc, I do think someone will break his legs if they keep going in on him like they are, hope not though obviously!
