He was in my brothers year at school. He said that Townsend wasn't even the best in his year but his desire to be a professional footballer was more so of anyone else and it obviously shows as he is playing football at the highest level.
I've also liked the look of him. He is direct and not afraid to take a player on. It is a shame Harry didn't give him more opportunities last year when Lennon or Bale were injured/tired as he is like a direct replacement, for Lennon more so.
Another thing I am really liking about AVB, he isn't afraid to try out players. Falque, Carroll and Townsend getting games, Caulker being promoted into the first team instead of sent out for another loan etc.
