Man Of Match Delph - MORE TO COME

Man Of Match Delph - MORE TO COME

Vital Villa asked for your Brighton & Hove Albion man of the match (FA Cup 4th round)

Villa youngster Fabian Delph won by a country mile (what is a country mile by the way?) with 48%.

Delph

Strangely Steve Sidwell came second with 20%?

That left:

Guzan 7%
Albrighton 4%
A. Young 4%
Delfouneso 4%
Warnock 4%
Downing 2%
Sub: Milner 2%
Sub: Davies 1%
Sub: Clark 1%
L. Young 1%
Collins 1%
Beye 1%

Talking about Delph - yes we were - speaking to www.avfc.co.uk the youngster doesn't sound like he was as impressed as we were with his performance saying he should have had a hattrick. Great to read as it shows he isn't going to go with the hype, he truly wants to deliver! Some of his touches were magnificent on the day!

On his goal he said 'It felt really good. But I felt I should have had a hat-trick to be honest. Luckily I managed to keep going and got a goal. It was a big relief for me as I thought 'what have I done here?!' The ball came across and I thought I only needed a touch, but the keeper has made a magnificent save and all credit to him.'

And he isn't resting on his laurels (what does that even mean?) 'I think I've got a lot more to add and hopefully with games, I'll improve.'

He also says he will keep on working and will wait for his chance for more first team action and is very honest adding, 'To be fair, I've had a few chances this season and not done particularly well so I've got nobody to blame apart from myself.'

What a great lad, so nice to read honest comments and determination. Full interview: www.avfc.co.uk

We also asked the usual Villa v BHA in FA Cup will: via mystic mug!

I know some are sad to see Gardner go. But if you had to choose between Craig and Delph, is there really a choice? We need to bring Delph on which would continue to limit Craig's opportunities still further.

A “Country Mile” is an informal phrase for "a long way". It probably comes from the time when country folk walked everywhere. For them a 'mile' was not too far, but walking a mile across country feels alot more than an actual mile. Basically it means "a long distance." “Resting on your Laurels” means a person is satisfied with what they have achieved, so they stop striving for success or decide that further effort isn't needed. It comes from when the Greeks awarded wreaths of laurel leaves to the winners of the Pythian Games. For some winners the award was enough and they felt that they had reached the pinnacle. GOD, I'M BORED !!!

can't disagree gordonsleftboot, Craig is now too far down the pecking order, needs and deserves first team football so he has to move on. Also agree p.villa, Delph looks head and shoulders above a very disappointing (at present, not sure it will change, hope so though!) Sidders.
