Bannan Relishing Seaside Trip

Bannan Relishing Seaside Trip

Bannan, our diminutive midfielder is looking forward to another Championship loan spell and hopes this one will be as productive as his last.

Bannan was on loan for a period of time with Derby last season, making 10 appearances and impressing Nigel Clough in the process so I'm surprised they haven't come back in for him.

Instead he's off to Blackpool on a two month loan and the youngsters believes it will be a 'great challenge'.

He's also looking forward to the opportunity of impressing Martin O'Neill again by staring in competitive games in the hope of getting some first team action when he returns.

'It will give the manager an idea of whether I am ready for first team football at Villa. He will want to see how I cope with playing every week and I'm sure he'll be following my progress and that of the other lads on loan at the moment.'

As for any comments about working with the slightly 'tapped' (that's the politically correct phrase these days for a loveable lunatic isn't it) Ian Holloway, the wee man said:

'I've seen him on Soccer AM a few times and he's a funny man but I am sure when it comes to the business of winning football matches, he's as serious as they come.'

Just hope they develop him and not get him booting balls up field. Would love to see him come through.

Take it from me, Ian Holloway likes his teams to play football, not 'bootball'. He may be a bit wierd but Holloway knows the game. I'm sure he will help Bannan.

Obediah is spot on. I thought Holloway was a bit of a joker when he became Pool manager and he has proved he is. But as well as that he knows his football he creates a fantastic team spirit, he knows how to use substitutes, he plays football on the ground with Blackpool being really strong in midfield. It is unlikely, but not impossible they could do a Burnley, and it will be good for Bannan. He will enjoy it, it is a fun place to play football and the atmosphere art Blackpool's games is better than most Premier League grounds despite an average of only around 8,000 fans. As for Bannan he is one of a few Villa youngsters who I think and hope if given the opportunity by MON of a few games would come in and make us a better team. I live in Blackpool and will look forward to following his progress closely.
