Dunne , Clark and Given all there not to mention a few Irish youngsters aswell , it'll do him the world of good having some Irish players around...

Fair play to the lad, hopefully he makes the grade. McLeish gave Fahey the chance and he grabbed it with both hands so hopefully young Stevens can do the same when called upon. Always puts a smile on my face seeing these lads make the step up from LOI .

After Warnock's display yesterday he may get his chance sooner rather than later.

Best of luck to Stevens. 

When he initially signed for villa, he said that he was nowhere near the physical ability and fitness of the other villa players and the villa management were concerned as to whether or not he would be able to make the grade.

However, Enda then got Dubs footballer philly mcmahon to be his personal trainer, and mcmahon runs his own physical and fitness regime. Enda spent months at that, and was over at villa before christmas for an assessment and the staff couldn't believe how fit he had become. 

Enda said last week that he couldn't wait to apply this fitness and ability in the premier league, so best of luck to him. I reckon he might surprise us all.

I read somewhere that he has been over and back of late and that Richard Dunne had taken him around, and helped him get sorted.. That can be only be good in settling the player. With a little luck he could really turn out to be a great player for club and country

was very impressive in the early part of the season and in there early Euro games
seemed to fall below par after that
will be surprised if he was to start any PL games this season bar injuries
yes Warnock had a shocker the other night but he wont be dropped for that alone
Clark will fill in there if Warnock is left out IMO

Citz, you sure you were watching Stevens?   Was superb early season, lost a bit of confidence around May/June but rediscovered his from from the Champo League games onwards where he was absolutely magnificent.  The tragic death of his sister in around September was a massive blow to him obviously.  I tell yiz now, he'll be playing for Ireland sooner rather than later, I've huge hopes for him, he is class.

Smashing player who showed great potential when at Pats 3 yrs ago. Probably a better midfielder than defender but seems to be comfortable at the back. Having said that was targeted and skinned away to Steaua  but had a great game away to Valletta

He done very well in the LOI but was never an outstanding player for me. I have seen him play twice for Ireland u23s and didnt stand out at all. I think the potential is there, how much is the big question. Best of luck to him. Thumbs Up

yeah seen him in a few of the euro games and a couple of the  Rovers LOI games that were on the box.In the euro games he got skinned a few times and seemed to be caught out of position. One of these games was Spurs at home, Giovani took him to the cleaners two or 3 times. Seen him against Paok away also, not great either. Spurs away i think he was partly responsible for two of the goals, Defoe beat him in the air to score and he was ball-watching for the 3rd to allow Giovani in at the back post to score. Saying that, to be fair i have not seen enough of him. and didn't know his sister died so should cut him some slack.

Paul Bealin my gaelic manager gets Philly down a good bit to assess our fitness and to give out programme's never any complaints from our lads , he's a top trainer no wonder Enda is feeling the benefits Clap

Doubt they'll loan him out for the remainder of this season. They will want to have a good look at him first hand and get him accustomed to the place. Maybe if he is still not up to the level at the start of next season then he might go out on loan.
 
Warnock has been shocking the past 2 seasons so there is a chance for him you would think.

Villa have Hutton and Warnock at left full, both have been repeatedly found out this season. I can definitely see him getting into the first team before the end of the month, never mind the end of the season


Posted By: Green Devil
Date Posted: 12 Jan 2012 at 2:04pm
It would be great if he managed to get a few EPL games under his belt from now until the end of the season , he could become another genuine option for Trap after the Euro's if he takes his chance at Aston Villa!

Your right lads Hutton is a bomb scare and Warnock has gone back a fair bit , money's tight at Villa Park so maybe he will get his chance! Hope so Thumbs Up

With the poor quality of left backs at Villa he's got to have a great chance of game time before the end of the season.  Warnock and Hutton are not up to much.  Great to see Premiership clubs scouting LOI.

Enda's actually captained the reserves on a couple of occasions, too.

Despite Warnock's poor form and the fact he's been dropped a couple of times, he's yet to feature at all for the first team. Carlos Cuellar actually played there last week, and Nathan Baker's been on the bench as the left-back back-up while Clark's injured.

I'm guessing we'll see him next season.

He has a ways to go before the first team I'd say. His form dipped off badly before his move from Rovers. That said, I understand he went through some serious family issues. Hopefully he keeps focused and gets his chance eventually.

Watched it aswell due to the amount of Irish lads playing. Thought he was solid at the back until Brady came on but had a hard time with him after. Could have had an assist or 2 aswell played well in an attacking sense.
Ye Grealish played about 70 mins or so and found it hard to get into the game when ever he got the ball though you could tell he had quality.
Williams was solid at CB for Villa
Drennan was a bit isolated aswell think he was playing up front on his own.
Carruthers was probably the best of the Villa irish had a poor enough start with some slack passes but grew into the game and started to make things happen. Had a shot blocked off the line after a good run and 1 2 and keeper made a good save from him in the second half aswell. Keeper saved his pen in the shoot out. Would put it more down to a good save than a bad peno.

Have to agree with that. When he was good he was certainly showing potential for a better standard than the LoI. However he had a propensity to go into dreamland for months on end. He is a decent second tier of England quality if he stays clued in - I really can't see him making it in the EPL or being a long term Irish #3. Again, hope I am wrong, but I don't think I will be.

Citz/RTID, totally disagree, I think this lad has a great chance, was outstanding up to the tragic loss of his sister, I believe his performances against Copenhagen and particularly Partizan Belgrade got him his move to Villa.  I hope you are proved wrong RTID, time will tell but I really believe this lad will become a top left back, he's only a kid still.

No reason why he can't make an instant impact for Villa in the EPL  just like former LOI players like McClean and  Coleman. Stevens always looked a class act with Shams.

Hope he gets a run, maybe Rovers might get another few quit if he makes a few appearances in the PL.

He hasnt made an instant impact. He's been there for several months and has seen very little in the way of competitive first team action.

Considering that this was during a very poor season for aston villa he has a lot of work to do. 

Looking a class act for Shamrock Rovers is one thing.This is another completely.

McClean didn't have an immediate impact either, wasn't given a chance until MON took over, and btw I thought he was quite average for Derry (he never struck me as one to get a move in the games I saw of him )

James McClean made the Sunderland first team within three months of signing. I think James McLean needs to do next season what he did last season to have "made it". Otherwise it will appear like a flash in the pan.
 
Enda Stevens has struggled to even make the bench at Villa in a longer period. He's been at the club for seven months and only made his first start last weekend in a pre season friendly game against lowerleague opposition

He hasnt made an instant impact. He's been there for several months and has seen very little in the way of competitive first team action.

Considering that this was during a very poor season for aston villa he has a lot of work to do.

Took McClean around 5 months to get his first start other than that he was just making the bench and getting the very odd sub appearance. Stevens made the bench a few times and his contract with Villa only began in January meaning he was only there for 5 months of competitive games.

Anyway they have a friendly tonight against Philadelphia and he is on the bench.

Came on this evening on the hour mark, played left back, done ok, bit shaky at times. He can only improve although not sure if youll see him lining out regularly. He always could go on loan to a championship or L1 side to prove himself.

Clark was good tonight at centre-half, he'll give Dunne who came on as sub and Collins competition for a starting spot.

Ireland was taken off at half time, wasn't great.

Wouldn't much in to any pre-season match. Macheda plays and scores every year for United pre-season and has hardly featured the past two seasons. Let's hope he can get plenty of game time to settle in to the squad but it'll be a few games in Aug/Sept before we'd learn anything as to whether he has the pace, concentration etc to make a career in the PL.

Are people forgetting Villa were fighting for their lives last season? McLeish was hardly going to throw in a youngster from the LOI into the depths of the bottom end of the EPL table when every game was do or die!

Villa are trying to sign a young left back off Ipswich - Aaron Creswell. Wouldn't be good for Stevens if that happened


Edit: Wrong first name

Every manager wants a big squad, if Enda's good enough (and I think he is) he'll get his chance, will be up to him to show Lambert he can cut it.

Atleast it's not a big name left back coming in with international pedigree , Cresswell is joining from Ipswich with alot to prove like Enda at EPL level. Ah sure look we all know if Enda is good enough he'll make it Thumbs Up

Himself and Grealish are in Holland to play in the Nextgen tomorrow night. You would have thought he would be in the squad for tonights game though considering he got a bit of game time during pre-season.

Bennett has signed for Villa a LB so am guessing that knocks Enda back a bit, would be a good iðea to go out on loan get some experience playing championship maybe....

Thought Stevens did great on his debut last night, did well to make our opening goal.

Graham Burke also made his debut from the bench - looked bright and brimming with confidence.

That's three young left backs at Aston Villa now (if you include Nathan Baker as a left back)

Will have his work cut out for him to make the breakthrough.

Main thing is though he's young, I still think he'll make it at top level even if doesn't eventually pan out with Villa.
