Lewis - I'm better than brother Ash

Lewis - I'm better than brother Ash

Those Young brothers are full of confidence you know…

Ashley Young might have already notched up over 50 games for Aston Villa since his £9.65m move, played for England and scored an absolute screamer in the UEFA Cup but younger brother Lewis reckons he`s still "better than him"

That`s right folks. Lewis Young might only just have picked up his first senior start in a Hornets shirt - in the 2-1 Carling Cup win over Darlo - but the next lad off the Young production is aiming to 'out-do' his sibling.

Lewis - the brother who did not lend his name for Ashley to use as an online nickname during 'that` webcam fiasco - told the Watford official club site "There are similaries but we`re definitely not the same - I`m better than him.

"Obviously my brother is doing well but I just want to out-do him".

Let`s face it, if Lewis does make the same impact at Vicarage Road as older bruv Ashley then we`re in for a magical few seasons but the Academy starlet is keen to be his own man.

He added "Having a brother like that, there`s always going to be pressure but you have to put it to the back of your mind because otherwise you won`t be able to focus on your own game".

Well Lewis, that`s a very mature attitude to have on your young shoulders my lad.

Have any of you guys seen him play? I find it hard to believe he could even be a patch on Ash. With all sincerity, thanks alot for Ashley Young, he makes going to watch my club a pleasure and alot of that is down to the fantastic development work your club did with him. Well done and all the best for the season.

Feeder club we will always be, he has the talent for sure, just need to stay free of injury and put some meat on. If villa wanna keep paying £9 million, then im sure Chairman Mao, will take it!

There's obviously something good in those Young genes so why don't Watford sign-up their Dad and then charge stud fees for him?
