I just have a feeling, once this young winger gets a run in the team, is fully fit and gets a bit of luck to remain injury free, he’s going to be a superstar.

This is our future, if we go up I am certain he’ll make the grade, if we don’t then we will have to see more and more of our youngsters come through as the club cuts its cloth accordingly. That, to be fair, could be very exciting to watch.

Again, as I said in the Andre Green article, this really could be our immediate future if we don`t get promoted this season. The youth players will have to come through as some of our loan signings, or possibly all of them, won`t be able to be re-loaned or signed on permanent deals. With the financial fair play rules being so strict and us about to get the third, final and much smaller parachute payment from the Premiership, the make up of the team next year, if in the championship still, would be very different.

Some nice words of thanks from Snoddy… very upbeat in his praise of what is going on at Villa at the moment.

Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce has held his hands up to not freshening the group up for the visit of Queens Park Rangers yesterday evening.

Hosting the struggling side at Villa Park for the game, Ian Holloway’s boys comfortably tonked us three one on the day with James Chester’s 88th minute effort nothing more than a consolation.

Following the high of victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers, it’s good to know the Aston Villa we all know and love is still alive under there as we fell to defeat in predictably idiotic style.

Aston Villa youngster Easah Suliman finds himself in the England Under 20 squad for their games this March international break.

The 20 year old defender finds himself back in the Under 20 set up having already won four caps at that level, and having made his bow for Villa in the League Cup this year in the victory over Wigan Athletic, he’ll have also now been boosted by making his Grimsby debut as he started their game last weekend against Port Vale.

Parties and hangovers..

Villa’s impressive win over Wolves on Saturday was one of those games which only happen on rare occasions. It was one of those games which the Villa kids will remember all their lives. Beating Birmingham City was memorable but the Wolves thrashing surpassed the former by a good margin because Wolves are the best team in the Championship and no one really expected Villa to put four goals past them. The win saw Villa at peak performance and as such it was entirely reasonable to expect some kind of decline for the game that followed. It was just a matter of how much the extreme physical effort Villa put into the Wolves game would carry over and how much the sense of achievement would dull their mental focus. The evidence that the defeat of Wolves had come at some cost was plain to see on Tuesday night and Queens Park Rangers did to Villa what Villa had done to Wolves, but with less effort.

I`ve just not had the time to get on to discuss the QPR game this week. I’ve not been sulking honest, just been busy and then thought … well… meh! So I think I shall now draw a line under it. Usually I`d do the highlights, manager talk, my opinion and all that. But we all know everyone – including the fans in my humble – froze that night and it really was a case of after the Lord Mayor`s show.

Do we harp on about it?
