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

Settled Sidwell

Steve Sidwell now believes he's settled in at B6 and he believes he's playing his best football since joining us.

Most fans wouldn't disagree with that. However playing his best football since joining us is still a fair way off the Stevie Sidwell we saw destroy us when he was playing for Reading.

Now that's the form we want!

Speaking to SSN, the Ginger Ninja spoke briefly about the start to his Villa career, out of the team, not really getting a run to find his feet and being blighted by niggly injuries but Sidwell has benefited more than any other from the departure of Barry and he's determined to make the most of it.

'The settling in period didn't go as well as I wanted but now it's going great.'

He adds that with a run in the team a player becomes more confident and starts to 'express' themselves which is when you reach top form. He describes the moment as 'great' but doesn't for a second imply this is the best he can do in a claret and blue shirt, and we all hope there's more to come from him.

From know Stevie has an eye for goal, and he's capable of running a midfield. If or should I say when, he reaches those heights it'll be a joy to watch.

As is rather apt after his comments about Hokey Cokey and the recent 'fart' from Emile Heskey, Sidwell also explains how he dealt with being out of the squad:

'Try and keep your head down, keep working hard in training, and hope there is light at the end of the tunnel, a break or a chance, and that's what I've done.'

Adding:

'Now I am reaping the rewards. My performances are getting there but I can still do a lot better.'

Well said that man!

I personally thought he had a good game against pompey & did ok against citeh....he does make some well timed runs into the box but does not always get picked out, & has missed the odd chances that have came his way...but staying clear of injuries & getting games regularly i believe he will be a decent player for us.....he does graft well in midfield & does a hell of a lot of work off the ball, covering, denying space & does put his boot in.....I dont think he is just what we need to really push on but do think he could play an important squad role....
