Great news tonight that Albrighton has signed his new contact along with Ciaran Clark.
Anyone reading this blog from the start will know what a massive fan of the two I am and just think some ‘idiots’ on here used to berate me about my admiration from Marc, how foolish do they look now ? Both Clark and Albrighton will form the basis of any successful Villa side we will have in the future.
Albrighton we know what he is like, he has pace, he can spot great passes and once he gets more confident he will score loads of goals like he has done throughout his career. I predicted if he plays a lot of games this season for England’s PR tour of Thailand he will get picked, nothing has changed my mind on that.
Clark, is going to be an immense leader and captain for AVFC and his country, now Ireland unfortunately. He has composure on the ball, the ability to pass and read the game, for me a young Paul McGrath and that is not an over hype of him, he is THAT good.
Along with the likes of the Fonz (he WILL take his chance), Weimann, Delph and Gardner there is a great youth base to build on and should not be squandered. (Watch out for Cameron, Carruthers, Burke and Grealish)
The situation has now given two or three the chance that MON for whatever reason never gave them properly, they are TAKING it !
