Randy Lerner has admitted he is slightly disappointed that only 3 Villans made it into Fabio's 30 man squad for the World Cup.
As we know Milner, Heskey and Warnock all have chances to stake their claim for the full squad, although you would fully expect Milner and Heskey to already be shoe ins, but Randy believes that Young, and Gabby can feel disappointment wih the fact that they aren't in with the same shot.
Lerner made his thoughts known whilst speaking to the Sunday Mercury:
'I felt Ashley and Gabby should have been in. I don't get it.'
Adding that both players have proven over the past few seasons that they can contribute at Villa, and with Ash's trickery he's capable of 'changing a game in 20 seconds'.
There's an obvious merit in Lerner's thoughts, Gabby has improved over the past two seasons especially and Ash can clearly change a game when he's firing on all cylinders but neither player stood out when given the chance by Fabio in the way say Milner did. Both players also have consistency issues that have been done to death on the forum.
There's no doubt both are capable of playing a part in the England team, but with the claret and blue specs off there are better choices at the moment and I doubt many of us are surprised they aren't there.
