Bannan Battling For First Team Spot

Bannan Battling For First Team Spot

Barry Bannan has focused on winning his first team spot back, as opposed to heading out on loan somewhere.

With Delph likely to be returning, it has opened up the possibility of Bannan having a spell out on loan, but speaking to the E&S Barry said his focus was to end the season being one of the first names on McLeish's teamsheet.

'I want to show the gaffer what I can do and by the end of the season I want to be one of the first names on the teamsheet. That's what I'm aiming for.'

He certainly hasn't shown the kind of form and energy in recent matches, but that's difficult to do when you regularly only seem to get 8 minutes when we are already losing or under the cosh.

As long as Idiot doesn't fall out with Irealand - or he gets injured, then I think Bannan will remain on the bench at best TBH.

Hope he grabs his chances, and makes it, as if he does it can only be good for Villa. Totally agree players need to be given a better opportunity which , whether a younger or older player, means as well as having longer than 8 minutes, also means keeping their place if they play well, and losing it if they don't. Stating the obvious, but .....

Don't think he's good enough to be honest, or maybe its just the manager making him look bad, we can blame the manager for everything can't we LOL

He hasnt lived up to his promise in games I have seen this season. I was at Fulham away last year and he looked like he would go on to great things. Seems to be looking for the killer ball too much now and gives it away a lot
