Last Week We Came Of Age - Baker

Nathan Baker said the youthful Villa team came of age last week in our victories over Norwich and Liverpool.

Speaking to the Official Site Baker said confidence was sky high after our recent exploits and although we have tough games coming up, he's hopeful that last week could be a big turning point for the club this season:

'It has definitely been a bit of a coming of age week for us reaching a cup semi final and then beating Liverpool. We have been on a great cup run and it's great to transfer some of those performances into the league games. There are some big game now in a busy festive period but we're definitely up for it. I'll sleep well over the next few weeks, that's for sure!'

Baker also makes a very telling comment when discussing how he, Herdy and Clarkie dealt with Suarez:

'I grew up with Ciaran and Chris throughout the club's Academy so we know each other's game pretty well, and like to play with each other. A lot of the young lads have won the reserve league together so hopefully we can do well with the first team now.'

That understanding really does seem to be showing promise for us now.

"Like to play with each other"!!!!!!! Think the lad was poorly advised in his interview or hopefully misquoted.

With the three man defense doing so well it'll be interesting to see where -- or if -- Vlaar fits in when he comes back.

Boo 444!

you trying to make 444 jump or are you booing him?!
The Fear
They can do what they like together as long as we keep winning as far as I'm concerned!
Lion Heart
444's comment reminds me of what Phil Tuffnell once said about Jonah Lomu's devastating four try performance against England in the 1995 Rugby World Cup. 'He tossed our boys off'.

Can we have less of the inuendos about Master Baker please
Pride of Lions
Agreed PoL!!! It is a bit childish and bordering on homophobic. Baker, Herd and Clark are playing well together but hopefully it won't alienate Vlaar. Lambert has made some great signings but hopefully he won't be just going after Brit/Irish talent because the current youngsters are performing. MON made that mistake. Players from the British Isles and elsewhere are the future.

Didn't they all "play together" in the *****dorf Stadium at somepoint?
Lost_In_Ca
Even the "Came Of Age" has a double entendre hint about it Mike. Your articles are normally non risque!!!!
