Andreas Weimann - One Hell Of A Player Developing

Andreas Weimann - One Hell Of A Player Developing

No surprise that a lot of the talk surrounds Andreas Weimann.

He, along with Brad Guzan are in Garth Crooks team of the week on www.bbc.co.uk/sport.

And Paul Lambert has questioned whether Andi has an extra lung, he runs around so much!

He said on www.avfc.co.uk that the players work rate is 'phenomenal`.

'If he keeps that enthusiasm and that hunger and desire to play a game of football he will have a big, big career. He is a phenomenal player to work with. He is a great lad. His enthusiasm for the game? If he can keep that throughout his career, he will have one big career for sure."

He adds that he was happy to give him a chance, as he was always in and out of the teams before, which to be fair, at his age, was right. But says that since he`s had a regular spot, he has been 'playing exceptionally well."

Lambert also admits that although he realises the players favoured spot is in the centre, he gives everything he has wherever he is put.

On his QPR performance, "Andi showed that with his work for the third goal - he never gave it up. That's Andi all over. That's his character. The goal he scored himself was brilliant. It was a fantastic finish. It was a brilliant goal.'

On Espn Lambert added that wherever he is put, he scores!

'I know his natural position is probably through the middle but that's difficult with the way Christian Benteke and Gabby Agbonlahor are performing. But, whether or not he has to play off the line, he seems to score goals."

Mat Kendick also has an article in the Birmingham Mail with quotes from Vlaar.

"Andi Weimann was very inspirational. He scored himself and made Christian`s goal. He keeps going, it`s unbelievable. If you see his workrate stats, it`s crazy actually and again he was massive for us."

And it seems players want him to say... too ******* right. I`d be gutted, nay, distraught... nay, gutted AND distraught if we let a player like this go.

"I don`t know much about it (the contract) but I heard they are talking to each other. Of course, it`s very important he stays playing for Aston Villa."

He adds, "I think he`s improving. He`s also pushing for the Austria senior squad. He`s working very hard and improving every day. So that`s very good, for us and for him as well."

Put simply, Andi Weimann will be one hell of a player and MUST stay at Villa. Gulp...

A stunning performance from a gung-ho player. Deserves a better contract. That's the standard we expect.

agreed Grizzly, if they all played like him, we'd be laughing.

Agree with both of you. If we allow him to leave or anything stupid like that, then you might as well put the boards up and close the club down!!!!!

Credit must go to Lambert for getting this standard out of him. Others would've incorrectly played Bencht and the lad may not've had the chance. Villa have held back the youngsters for far too long and Andi is far too good to be sat watching.

Weimann has featured in all seven of Villa's league wins this season, they have failed to win any of the eight games he has missed - enough said!!!

A player who has improved his game year on year and deserves all the acholades he is getting now works dam hard for the team and along with Goose & Bentke best thing to come out of the season so far. Gabby is also putting a shift in these days glad he stayed with us as well.

I don't just wanna see him signed up. I want him signed for 4 years at least. If we give him a 3 yr deal to end up in the same position in 18months... id be livid. Give the lad what he wants, show him some commitment & loyalty and maybe well get the same in return. And let's be honest, if he becomes the player we all think he will hes not gonna be here forever. When he does leave lets make sure its on our terms not some panicky take what we can get cos hes only got 6months on his contract deal.

The Weeman is the player we thought Luke Moore or the Fonz were going to be. He's the real deal. Fantastic player, pay him what he wants, ffs!

Give the man what he deserves and quick!! I think Andi does have Villa in his heart, you can tell he really cares. If we give him a good offer which he definitely deserves, I think he will show us loyalty. If they haven't already, other clubs will soon take notice and start sniffing around. Don't let the lads head get turned, reward him and show him how important he is to our future by sorting the contract ASAP. I will be utterly gutted if we don't secure him as a Villa player for at least the next 3 years.
