Everyone, please welcome Brian Bonilla in his debut blogging experience. Tell him how great he is so that he'll stick around and keep writing for us! Pester him on Twitter at @bredred or join his Aston Villa America group on Facebook. (While you're there, make sure you join ours as well!)
Earlier this week, Houllier stated in his presser that even if he had fielded his strongest XI we still would've had no shot vs. Man City, I agree. The argument starts with Ash, Stewart Downing, and Marc Albrighton all being benched whent they are game changers. While this is true, the lack of presence of a certain Darren Bent really changes our main attacking movement.
So to sum it all up, If Bent is available we should be creating a ton of chances through Ashley’s passing, direct running, and ability to help dictate our attacking movement. But if Young does decide to go, he’s not the only trequarista in the world who possesses these traits in our side ;)
(Editor's Note: something tells me this last sentence was directed at me and my Bannan love -ks)
