Well Barry Bannan sounds like he is focussed at the moment. Hope so. Personally I`m not sure he`ll make it but would be happy to be proved wrong, especially if he can develop off the pitch as well!

He told the Birmingham Mail that he knows this coming season is crucial for his Villa career.

The 22-year-old midfielder said:

“It`s probably make or break for me this season if I`m being honest. It`s a big, big season. I`m 22 now and I`ve got to be playing so hopefully I can have a strong pre-season and show the gaffer what I`m about. My aim this season is to be one of the main players in this team.”

He says there is far more to come from him and adds, “I think I`ve shown it in flashes but not quite enough over a period of time.”

Difficult to judge any of them on last season isn`t it? But great to see that he is hungry for it. Hopefully this is more than talk. I also hope he realises that not every pass has to be a ‘Hollywood pass` … some can just be simple as long as we keep possession.

He`s also spoken on www.avfc.co.uk saying there is more to come from the team in general.

There has to be. There will be no more hiding places in my opinion, if they don`t perform, Lambert (I hope) just won`t play them.

And on himself, ‘I’ve got two more years left, so I’ve still got plenty of time. But I want to be one of the main players this season.’

I think by 24 you will know, 22 he (and the others) are still learning. Not sure fans show much patience with the younger players, one bad game and some write them off.
