I've been back and forth on Ashley Young too many times to count. I've been a waffler. I've often thought he should leave Aston Villa, and leave the club a handsome profit in return; I've also been an admirer of his for a very long time. He, in some ways, is how I feel about the club in a nutshell. And of late, I've been feeling rather good.

There is only one way to measure a club’s success in the winter transfer window. It has nothing to do with fees paid, wages off the books or net spending. It has nothing to with money at all, actually.

Kevin Hughes Kevin Hughes spent the best part of ten years working and writing for the football magazine Match; once (sort of) inspiring David Beckham to copy his shaved-hair look, getting lost in Paris after the 1998 France v Croatia World Cup semi-final and other such nonsense. As Deputy Editor, he launched and established Sport, the London-based free weekly magazine, before moving on to become a consumer magazine publisher, a position he holds today. Introduced to Villa by his father and grandfather, he attended his first ever match at Villa Park as a seven-year-old in 1982… and has suffered almost constant disappointment since.
