    This guy was part of the U19 squad in the recent championships, although didnt play much of a part. Appears to be doing very well for Villa in their pre season and hopefully is one that will be worth keeping an eye on over the next couple of years.

    Missed out on the final squad in the end. He is eligible I tink again this season. Their are 2 under 19 friendlies in serbia I think this week he may be involved. I think villa might have 5 players involved at under 19s with us this season i think.

    Makes the bench for Villa today, so he gets a thread. A bit surprised after seeing him a few times for the reserves last year given the options they have, though he is versatile and can play up top or in the midfield.

    A very silky ball player dont think he would be a 15 goal a season man but has the technique to be a top creative player

    Similar to what I said last year, excellent footballer,lovely touches, good vision, doesn't bang goals for fun but the best Irish prospect at villa out of Stevens, Burke, Drennen and curruthers in my opinion, very neat player

    Agree. Villa really is doing great for us at moment. Devine is back this year after been out all last season and captained villa 19s in next gen last week.Drennan has started season/preseason real well and is scoring regularly I think he might be a good goalscorer still under 19 for us this year.This time last year dreenan was back in kilkeney and looked like he had packed it in. Grealish is an excellent player been playing in the hole bit this preseason which i think will be his position to get him more involved than on the wing. Think we will see all these this season and also carruthers unless villa have relegation type season.

    Drennan bagged one and set up one again yesterday for the villa 21s, Stevens with an assist...no Burke in the squad from what I'm seeing, unsure what this will mean for the weekend as i imagine he would of played if he was going to be involved against everton

    Its interesting that Drennan is performing so well. I saw him play probably 3-4 times last year and was unimpressed each time. From what I recall his main attribute is that he is good in the air.

    On for his debut as a second-half substitute with Villa 3-0 up on Tranmere.

    Very true, just like sehx; it's very limited what you can lean if only play with yourself

    Interesting deadline day for Burke. Villa have brought in a potential headcase called Bertenke from Genk and Jordan Bowery from Chesterfield, while Nathan Delfounso has gone on loan to Blackpool. Could be in line for an appearance tomorrow at least.

    Yeah Bowery is the only one who may possibly be eligible for the weekend and happy to see Burke wasn't farmed out.

    Team for the Newcastle game on sunday will be hard to call. Having lost to west ham with a 4231 and hammered by Everton with a 442 hard to know what formation he will go with.

    They used diamond midweek with 2 up front when he came on but a number of the players that are probably ahead of him in the pecking order didn't play.

    Lambert really has some decisions to make for this one to try and avoid a 3rd loss on the trot which would be a terrible start.

    Burke is defo not to far away from some league time thou.

    Didn't Delfounso start last week? Or at least he came on before Burke. Hopefully it means he's going up the pecking order. Lambert clearly isn't afraid to throw young players in if he thinks they have the right attributes, so that will count in his favour.

    I suspect he will be loaned about before the loan deadline, but I think Lambert is savvy enough to send him to a club that will suit his skill set and develop him the right way.

    I've been watching Bowery since he first broke through for Chesterfield (I believe it was in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy he scored his first goal)...I don't think he's ready for the Premier League yet.
