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

Weimann Looking For More Pitch Time

Andy Weimann has said he is delighted with his progress at Villa so far, but he wants a proper run in the first team now.

Speaking to the Official Site following last night's 4-0 reserve victory over Newcastle, Weimann said the next step for him was to get a good run in the first team and get some real minutes behind him as opposed to the cameo's he's had so far.

It's been a decent rise through the ranks for him since joining as a 13 year old, and he knew it was an offer he couldn't refuse:

'I was playing at Rapid (Vienna) and then Bryan Jones saw me at a game and asked me over for a trial. I said 'yes' straight away because it was England and it's the best league in the world.'

The rest as they say is history. He impressed whilst on trial and was offered a youth contract and has steadily made a name for himself since.

'Now I am in and around the first team and hopefully I will get my chance and show the gaffer what I can do. I've not had a game where I've played 30 or 40 minutes yet, the few minutes I have played have been brilliant though.'

With Bent out injured, it's the perfect chance for Weimann to step up and impress.

came on at rovers and made the most of a cross within a minute. didn't he also score a couple of hat-tricks recently in the reserves? give him a proper run.

There is an oft spoken theory that when Rooney goes on a 10 game drought or even Torres on a much longer one - that they are still always proven goal scorers just going through a bad spell. Yet our youngsters seem to have to hit the ground running with goals flying in. Give him a run - and judge him on his performances and how much he improves the team - not on goals scored. Goals may come straight away, but if not they will come eventually. Creativity, pressure, and general play can all be part of a winning performance from our front men - and here's hoping he has an all round contribution to make and gets the run he clearly deserves.
