A Villa Tale Of Two Full Backs!


Liverpool's loss, our gain!

The Daily Mirror have an interview with our right-back Luke Young who turned down a move to Anfield in the summer.

Young, who is now back in the team following the baffling exclusion under MON, said:

'I just felt that I perhaps had more of a chance, if I could get my head down and keep going, of getting in the first team at Aston Villa than I did of getting in at Liverpool. At 31, I didn't really want to go anywhere and, on matchday, feel I was there as a back-up.'

Adding he felt he would just have been back up at Anfield.

Meanwhile, our left-back Stephen Warnock has made the England squad again and Steve Staunton has told the official site: 'He was always going to make it at the top level. I was at Coventry when I first came across Stephen and played with him there. He came on loan from Liverpool. He was an aggressive full-back - and still is. That's a big part of his game. He has tremendous running power too and he's a good tackler."

Adding "You could tell in his play that he was a tenacious player - he loved a tackle. He loves to get forward as well. His all-round game is very good. That's why he was picked for the England squad.'

We are extremely fortunate to have two very good full backs at the club in Luke and Stephen, the latter I thought giving his best performance of the campaign at White Hart Lane this past weekend. Like many of my fellow Vital Villans, I will never be able to comprehend why we were prepared to listen to offers for Luke this past summer, particularly when you consider that replacing him with a better player would have been a nigh on impossible task, particularly with funds being somewhat limited. Been a long, long time, since the club has been so well served in the starting full back department as it is right now. Both players amongst the very best in their position in the top flight.

Sorry to say I don't think Warnock has looked anything like good enough for England. Not unless we want to replicate the summer's world cup debacle. I think he has struggled this season so far. Gives the ball away, can be slow to get back, gets out of position and clumsy in the tackle. He is better in the opposition third, but still not good enough for England, surely?? Villa haven't had a choice and he seems a likeable lad, plus he always bgives 100%, so no complaints, but England??

Best news I had this summer was that Young was still going to be a villa player!
