'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The First Of Many For Eric

Eric Lichaj has targeted plenty more league starts for Villa over the coming years, but he realises at the moment the team has to come first.

Speaking on the Official Site for the second time since his starting league debut, Lichaj admitted 3 points at the DW Stadium is clearly the order of the day, and is of far more importance to the club than whether he manages to keep his place in the starting line up.

'As long as we get another result in the next game I think I'll be happy because that is what the team needs. To earn a regular first team place is obviously the ultimate aim, but we need the result.'

His performance against Albion certainly put him on the radar and it's good to hear he understands his position at the moment but I'd doubt he has to worry about whether he'll be in the team again before the end of the season....I'd say that was highly likely.

I like him. Tries really hard and has bags of pace...and a decent long throw. Seems to have a good attitude too.

Decent long throw? Its a freaking catapult!

And the best part of him... He's a yank

I must admit that I was never overly impressed with him when I watched him play for the reserve team. He looked way short on tactical awareness, lacked pace, couldn't tackle, and I always thought that his distribution was extremely poor. Consequently I was somewhat surprised when he was awarded an extended three year deal. However, he looked much improved against West Bromwich Albion. Caught out a few times, he stuck to his task, and gradually became more assured as the game wore on. I still think that he has a way to go, a lot to learn, much to improve upon, but who knows? Maybe he is capable of proving his supporters within the confines of Bodymoor Heath correct. Good Luck to the yank.

I think he is a vast improvement on Luke Young and yes, that throw in adds something to games when required.
