Ivanhoe: How many goals this season?
« on: January 02, 2011, 04:47:28 PM »
Whisper it quietly but it's now 6 goals this season for Emile Heskey. Sure he's capable of going the rest of the season and not hitting a barn door. But I think he may just comfortably exceed double figures (fitness permitted).

Goals aside though his form has really surprised me. Whenever he plays and goes off injured we look far worse off. When he doesn't play, we look worse off. When he's playing, he seems key to how Houllier wants us to play. I thought today he was brilliant again. His touch was good, he won most of his aerial battles, he was strong, quick, and rarely wasted a pass.

Long may it continue because Emile got so much flak last season, from myself included. He's always been a trier and worked hard and I do look to see a trier succeed. To be honest, and to my own surprise, he's probably my favourite Villa player at the moment. He's playing with a smile on his face, and he's also showing a bit of bite and aggression on occasion. I like seeing the big bear getting angry sometimes. All too often he's been more Gentle Ben than wild grizzly.

Keep it up Emile!

I reckons he'll get 13 goals this season in all competitions.

He's been great to be fair.  Just wish his goals were welcome additions to those we normally get from Carew and Gabby.

Quality, he is a hand full, his problem is staying fit.

Generally when Heskey's fit and playing for Houllier, his style and system looks like working. It's when Heskey isn't playing that it looks like it won't get us anywhere. Trouble is, Heskey's only played 9 out of our 20 games this season.

Niggles aside though, he looks a lot fitter than last season too. He's shed timber and he's got some pace back too. He'd lost it last season which never helped his cause.

I think he's been our best player this season. If only he could keep fit.

so If thats 6 goals in 9 games , that is a brilliant ratio.  We look poor when he isnt playing.
