Couldn't be arsed to :)) But I'll take note of that next time.
He seems to be "relaxed" after those long showers. Perhaps David is "lending" a hand? ;)

AVTV Player Report: Andrew Black



In this monthly series done by Aston Villa TV, squad players are picked and evaluated by our TV crew.

Andrew Black was a right midfielder converted to right-back by David Beckham, and is currently both a Scotland and Scotland Under-21 international.


Initially beginning his footballing career at hometown club Hibernian, Black quickly broke into the first team at the tender age of 17 and made 14 appearances in the Scottish Premier League for Hibs.

Black joined Aston Villa in January 2013 for just 325k and turned out for the Under-18s. With the Villans not favoring a formation with a right midfielder, manager David Beckham watched the youngster play in an array of other different positions and was satisfied with what he saw when Black played at right-back, thus beginning the Scot's conversion into a defender.

He made his breakthrough in the 2013/14 season, making 12 appearances for Villa in the Premier League and mainly acting as a deputy to Matthew Lowton.

Black finished the 2014/15 season with 18 league appearances, acting as deputy again to new right-back loanee Glen Johnson, receiving a Capital One Cup runner-up medal. However, he was not present for the FA Cup win against Preston.

At the start of the new season, on 12th August 2015, Black finally received a call-up to the Scotland squad after winning over 20 caps for the U21s. He made his debut against Iceland under Gordon Strachan, and has been slowly but steadily establishing himself as an international, having already won 3 caps for the Tartan Army. He scored his first goal for Scotland on just his 2nd cap, in a 3-1 rout of Ireland in a friendly match.

So far, Black has made 7 league appearances this season, acting as backup to newly-arrived Japanese full-back Yuto Nagatomo, but will be looking to win a starting spot in the Aston Villa first-team in the near future.

Crushing the Spurs

Aston Villa manager David Beckham has heaped praise on his Villa side after they went head to head with Tottenham Hotspur, and crushed the North London club in a magnificent 7-1 score.


It was the first leg of the Semi-Finals of the Capital One Cup, and Spurs will have to win the second leg 6-0 if they want to have any chance of competing in the Final.

Spurs manager Slaven Bilic's decision to start Swedish backup Par Hansson ahead of established number one Hugo Lloris horribly backfired as the Villans managed to put seven goals through the 29-year-old goalie. Belgian defender Jan Vertonghen also had an uncharacteristically bad game as he was tortured by opposition striker Carlos Fierro.

The 21-year-old Mexican bypassed the defense easily and scored the first goal of many as he put a blinder past Hansson. He followed this up with another goal 10 minutes later but Chilean striker Eduardo Vargas struck back for his side to increase chances of an equalizer and comeback.

However, that never happened as Villa summer signing Xabi Alonso got forward to slot in another two goals, followed by another Fierro goal that completed his hat trick. Fabian Delph struck next for Villa and Fierro completed the 7-1 rout with his fourth goal of the night, cheered on by thousands of Villa fans.

"It was an unbelievable scoreline," said Beckham, in the post-match interview. "I was hoping to face Norwich because I thought Spurs would give us a bad game but it was instead the other way around, and I'm very proud of the lads who managed to achieve this, especially Carlos. They will need to win 6-0 in the second leg and I can't see that happening."

Indeed, Aston Villa have practically booked a return to Wembley, and their third cup final in just three seasons.

Croatian boss Bilic started his job at White Hart Lane last month, leaving his post at AC Milan to take over from the sacked Marcelo Bielsa. Unfortunately, he is still looking for his first win as Spurs boss and this 7-1 crushing will not have helped his chances of raising his popularity with the fans and the board.
