Aston Villa Message Board
Villa are in the sh1t and Delfonso needs to be a option for us.
We know he is not the next Van Basten but he has shown some promise
Add this to team selection and substitutions and it all adds up to not making much sense to me
I'm not sure that I would agree about how promising he has been. I think he needed more time and somebody to play alongside him to build up a good partnership. In most games I've seen him play he has tended to just get pushed out towards the corner flag and lose the ball.
But, and it's a big but, I don't understand why Houllier, a man who tells us regularly that he's thinking of the future rather than the short term, has let someone like Delfouneso go without at least trying to find someone to play alongside him.
It would be bad news to see him ending up being another Crouch for us.
