Stiliyan Petrov (2006-2013)

143 posts in this topic


Is it just me or does he look to finally the part in the team so far this season. Hes getting stuck in and tbh looks our best midfielder at times at the moment.

I think his confidence is showing also, with the fact hes taking shots on goal from everywhere. Something we have been wanting him to do for some time.

I've always thought he was better than he gets credit for.

Ask the astonvillain he will tell you.

i think he is aware of the board spending money now so he's got to pull his finger out and about time to good competion now in the midfield but i would have to stick with barry in the middle with who ever was doing the buisness

I wouldnt. we have 4 quality center midfielders - thats not including Craig Gardner - so with him thats 5. Dont keep Barry in the side with the belief he 'might' do something.

You pick the 2 best midfield players and at this moment in time Petrov is one of them.

I didn't know you could use the words - quality and Craig Gardner in the same sentance.

Gardner is ok but not quality.

Hes a very good midfielder - you watch his game, you cant deny it one bit. Outplayed Barry in the uefa cup the other day. Always gives his all.

gotta admit Gardner gives his all for us and will get better he is a good solid player for us...personally id now drop Gareth and stick petrov in with NRC as we have Milner on the right

drop barry from the team? no way.. he is excellent and we actually need his passing abilities! petrov is playing really good though.. im betting we will see nrc on the bench next week and i dont think nrc will be pleased at all!

Dont forget the 6 games at the back end of last season too Paul where he was excellent for us ..and Yes drop Barry i thought he was poor Sunday Poor on Wednesday and poor against Stoke Time for him to experience what it would have been like at Scousescum a bit of time on the bench...he is quality dont get me wrong but last 3 games he aint been showing it

He still has alot more to do to convince me.

I agree though team must be picked based on form, therefore Petrov should start next game

I totally agree. Barry has not played to the standard that we know he can and needs a kick up the a++e !!!

Petrov might not have played well until the end of last season but he has carried his form into this season and you can tell he wants to be on the pitch week in week out.

All you Petrov doubters watch him off the ball as well as when he has it he reads the game very well.

Petrov is quality - fact

He hasnt shown he is quality in the premiership, hes had more poor games than good, he needs to be consistently good to be called quality, i hope he does go on and prove himself to be a top player for us

Barrys top quality, but weve gotta give him a bit of time. Hes just come out of the back of a transfer saga where hes thinking "am i staying, am i going?" it must be hard to do that. Give him time to get his form back but tbh MON has a difficult decison to make, NRC is our vice captain and Petrov has been playing well for us so its definetly tuff. Leave it to MON he'll do his job and he'll do it right.

Asked for Petrov, hes great and you cant say he doesnt give 110% for us every match because every picture I see of him after a match, hes always sweating like a pedo in a play pen.

He really has been playing well lately.

Hes been playing a much more defensive role than he played at Celtic or here last season. Maybe defensive suits him better in the prem

I've always been a big Petrov fan. He's got wonderful technique and is a good battler. He's had to show alot of character to keep his place and silence his critics. I'm pleased for him now that he's starting to get some recognition. I feel there's alot more to come from him as his confidence grows. Don't think I've ever heard his name chanted at a Villa game, that really bugs me. We sing Salifou's name when he jogs along the touchline and we sing feed the hare, but we don't sing Petrov's name, that's not right.

I think its more of the case, no-1 has a song for Petrov.. Maybe this is something people should be thinking about?
