I think he's a better passer than Parker.

I agree. I liked the comparison to Barry, almost like a love child of Fatboy and Carrick. Terrific footballer from the look of him though. When they look back and say where did it start to turn for Villa, the signings of Westwood, Lowton, Vlaar, Benteke and Guzan may be looked at as fondly as the summer that bought in Savo, Draper and Southgate.

I think he is very similar player to Carrick, both play the simple pass, but I think Westwood has great potential. More energetic than Carrick and seems a leader, certainly captain material. I really think Lambert has got a gem here

he wasnt that impressive yesterday to be honest - barry bannon got motm and even he wasnt that good


much of a muchness in midfield we have at the minute and nobody stands out

we have the closing down, the hunting in packs, fighting for every ball etc etc but we dont have ANYBODY that can pass

this thread actually depresses me (no offence to the original poster)

some of the midfielders we have had (in the not too distant past) and we are trying to big up a league 1 midfielder who has had a couple of non-descript appearances

You're depressed when we take positives from a match we lost. You're depressed when we praise a promising young player. You moan when we don't make enough noise. On behalf of all the Aston Villa supporters I speak for, may I just take this opportunity to apologise for us not being good enough to have you in our ranks.

You obviously have a different opinion of a midfielders performance than me with your comments

Honestly, nornironvilla, all people are saying is that maybe you should calm down a little bit.

A blind man on a galloping horse could spot that we're not very good this season, it's not like you're fighting against a tide of public opinion trying to convince us of it.

Let's give the Kid some credit....remembering that Kid is the right word......he has played his way in to the side, showed incredible maturity yesterday,passed accurately - forwards not sideways, tackled hard and from what I saw bossed the midfield whilst competing against world class players

What more can we ask ??
