Just picked this up from another forum.

Spoken by the Crewe boss,

"Clubs had monitored Ash for a long period of time. Villa came in, we thought Villa was a bit of a surprise. But then we found out that they had a thirty game dossier on him so they've done their homework; they knew what they were getting. But nobody else did, so fair play to them; they came in late with all their money and what a fantastic opportunity for him."

It's nice to know that we do do our homework on these lads.

Certainly a bit of good business so far, he along with others will develop and will be even better in the coming seasons

am liking the sound of this---the lad can be the midfield brains at B6 for many years to come,---might even catch Roy Hodgson,s eye!!!

and he can swing over a real good corner!!

Nice one Ashley ---and good luck in gracing The Claret and Blue.

Great news. As has been said previously, just need Lowton to commit really for a good summer overall.

Fantastic news, love Westy! As Startinez just said, if Lowton now commits it would be a great summer. (Apparently there are new deals lined up for Lowton and Clark).

Agreed!. Massively pleased with Westwood extension. Smashing player. Westwood, Lowton, Baker etc are the nucleus of the future, we should build around these players, it will bear fruits eventually.

Yeah I agree with that last part, building the squad around Westwood, Lowton, Guzan, Baker (based on last season) and hopefully players like Gardner, Okore, Delph will prove themselves worthy of doing the same.

Captain ????

Well deserved.

If i was to give any of the young lads the captains armband in the future it would be Baker, the lad is a beast at the back! Although arguments could be made for a number of our players holding the armband. Such is the type of man Lambert is going for, not just footballing ability.

Totally agree mate. Where as we have struggled before for a captain a case can now be made for several. The boys are becoming men.

Not sure about this season, but I can see Westwood becoming a captain. Wearing the armband isn't always about being the loudest one, but being calm and cool under pressure. That's Westwood. Cool, calm, and composed.

Am I the only Villa fan who can see what utter dross Ashley Wastewood is?

Depends why you'd make this point after he was; A, possibly our best player on the pitch yesterday and B, one of his best performances of the season yesterday?

He's been far from up to standard this season but he's still one of our most technically gifted footballers, probably only Delph has more skill on the ball than he.

Players like Westwood go unnoticed, until they aren't there, no coincidence that we lost conrol of the games yesterday when he went off.

He's always looking for an incisive ball, problem is the movement up top at the moment is non existent. When the front 3 were on form like last season Westwood provided some assists, his through ball to Gabby against Norwich last season was inch perfect.

He's a tidy footballer, not one that warrants criticism at the moment for me.

He seems to waste every opportunity when he is within 50 yards of goal. And whether it is the lack of movement but never see him play any remarkable passes, we need better quality than him.

I personally think he's pretty good. He's similar to Barry in the sense that he won't play the hollywood pass or be always banging in 30 yard screamers so the good work that he does goes unnoticed by most. I don't think it's a coincidence that after he went off against Newcastle we looked really poor in the middle of the park and Newcastle had most of the ball

When I watch Barry now, just like Scott Parker you see them doing all this leg work and stopping threatening attacks so that the flair players i.e. Mirallas/Barkley and Taraabt (not that he is there anymore) could roam free and hurt teams.

Just like we watched Tiote do against us, infact Tiote IMO is the best in the PL at doing this, he picks up lots and lots of yellow cards, but he stopped us breaking by making clever tackles whether they be fouls or not.

For me Westwood hasn't got enough about him and is very wasteful at times.
