Paul Lambert has singled out Brad Guzan for praise on www.avfc.co.uk.
It is amazing really, 54 goals conceded but really, he has been amongst our best if not our best player this season!
Guzan, who flew over whilst out of contract to meet Lambert and congratulate the new gaffer on getting the job, which led to him re-signing, has been 'colossal` according to the Villa boss.
'I think Brad has been exceptional. He's been absolutely colossal for the football club. I wouldn't swap him. He's a really good guy as well, which is important. He's always bubbly and is a good character."
I`m also told by several that Guzan is a top notch character and a gent off the field of play, which is nice!
He also praises Given and then adds, 'But Brad has made some massive saves for us in big moments and he's been a credit to the club. To have a good goalkeeper is vital and fortunately this club has got two top goalkeepers.'
Similar in the Express today.
Guzan says he is loving his time as the first choice.
"It`s great to be playing regularly, but I still need to prove myself and can`t be complacent. To come to Reading and then go down a goal, shows our character, our belief, our fight and spirit. We played some really good football."
Meanwhile Reading player Hunt is moaning having been bundled over by Brad about not being awarded a penalty. To be fair, he has a point and do we care? No, because we have the three of them (points that is!)
Hunt said: "I`ve seen the offside and I`ve seen the f****** penalty on me in the first half and it`s a disgrace," he said. "It`s a joke that he has not given it, I don`t know what he is looking at. He`s just punched me in the back of the head and you wouldn`t get away with it in rugby."
Player of season then you think? Guzan not Hunt obviously!!!
