Typical of the way I am, I was more interested in watching Vladimir Weiss tonight than I was in watching England. I was eager to see again how he would handle full International level and he did not disappoint me!
Weiss started for Slovakia against Northern Ireland tonight and was absolutely fantastic, he lit the game up with his skill and class. Weiss was by far the best player on the pitch and was the main reason Slovakia won the game.
He has progressed a lot since I first ever seen him as a skinny teenager, he has finally started to bulk up a little and can now compete physically with the seasoned pros.
Weiss has been showing his potential for years and I think that it is time he got his chance in our first team. SWP is not on top of his game and I think it is time for Hughes to show him he isn't irreplaceable, and with Weiss looking more and more ready for action I don't think that it will be a bad decision at all.
I think that City need to go a little bit Spanish with Weiss and give him a long contract at least a 6 year deal, with a huge buy out clause. I 100% genuinely believe that Weiss can be the best player in the world at some point in his career and how great would it be for that to happen to him well playing for the Club where he has come through the ranks.
As City fans I think we should make it known that Weiss needs a new contract sooner rather than later!
*No video of performance against Northern Ireland available at the moment will add if one does pop up.
Vladimir Weiss at International Level.
