England's Little Villans

England's Little Villans

Three Villans helped the England U19 side to a 3-1 victory over Turkey last night.

Nathan Delfouneso, Gary Gardner and Nathan Baker all played in the match and had something to cheer.

Baker captained the lads, and Delboy and Gardner Jnr both got themselves on the scoresheet.

Not a bad run out by anyone's standards eh, especially as the side are now 5 for 5 in the season.

Gary Gardner has another strange reason to celebrate, his appearance last night means he's now played for three different England teams this season having also represented the U20's and U17 squads.

In other England news Fabian Delph impressed during his run out in the England U21 side who drew 0-0 with Lithuania.

Delph played all 90 minutes and the point gained in the match leaves England just two points behind group leaders Greece with a game in hand.

Great stuff, nice to see the Fonz progressing and Gardner pushing his way in also, exciting prospect so I hear.

Seriously, I just can't imagine these fine prospects getting a chance under MON. I don't want to turn every thread into an anti-MON rant, but let's face it, the man's a knob.

Saurat - I'm a fan of MO'N but I totally agree with you on his youth policy. Sidwell ahead of Craig Gardner, wasting £5m on Dunne when Clark hadn't put a foot wrong (Letting Cahill go), Heskey ahead of Delfouneso & even Heskey on the wing ahead of Albrighton. And also wasting money on crap like Beye when we have a couple of RB's coming through. With players like Heskey, Beye & Dunne taking up places,the young lads would probably be better off moving on.

OK so if MON hadn't bought in new "senior experienced" players you lot would all be calling him an idiot for not bolstering the squad and relying on "untried youngsters". If it wasn't so sad it would be funny. "Clark hadn't put a foot wrong" No he hadn't but he'd only played one first XL game. Come on guys you know MON HAD to buy experienced players. We all wanted him to and he did. These guys WILL get their chance. Do Man Utd play all their youngsters every week? No. I'm sure he planned to play them in Europe again but that opportunity was lost. But if he had and we'd got knocked out people would have moaned that he shouldn't have relied on kids. So he can't win. I guess that's the managers lot. ;)

"Letting Cahill go" - not again - I imagined, hoped against hope, that Cahill's performance in our recent game against Bolton would finally put that one to bed, but no, it still goes on. Cahill was 'let go' because he wanted guaranteed first team football at a time when it could no be promised to him. Simple as. Can we now move on to important matters please? As for "Sidwell ahead of Craig Gardner", as much as I like Craig, I don't remember him setting the world on fire in any of his appearances, even when he was getting a few games. And to talk about Habib Beye as "crap", and about "Beye and Dunne taking up places" really beats everything. I'm beginning to wonder what planet some Villa fans live on.
