Nice to see that James Chester is being noticed isn’t it?

With the understandable hype surrounding John Terry, I think Chester often gets overlooked and he’s been pretty outstanding for us all season. In fact, I’d personally say he’s been rock solid.

So not surprised to see Aston Villa are represented by Chester in the latest Football League Team of the Week after the clash v Wolverhampton Wanderers. I forget the score, what was it again Vital Villans?

The FL blurb read:

‘Another weekend and another goal for Chester, but it was his defensive efforts which caught the eye as the Villans thwarted their rivals — and the Championship leaders — for much of Saturday evening`s success.’

It’s always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to Chester for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the win.

The full team is below and I have to say, I’m surprised having beaten the ‘mind the gap’ ‘best team in the league’ Wolves by so many (how many was it again!) that we didn’t get more players in this.

Interesting to see how well Joe Bennett is doing since leaving Aston Villa as well. I do think we let some of the ‘flops’ go far too soon. Lowton has also been getting rave reviews of late.

Lee Burge (Coventry City), Joe Bennett (Cardiff City), James Chester (Aston Villa), Sam Habergham (Lincoln City), Alex Rodman (Shrewsbury Town), Lee Martin (Gillingham), James Maddison (Norwich City), Bradley Dack (Blackburn Rovers), Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham), Jack Marriott (Peterborough United), Mohamed Eisa (Cheltenham Town).

Manager – Keith Hill (Rochdale).
