[edit] Overview

Ashley Young represents a new generation of English footballer. Being able to play on either side with equal proficiency make Ashley a great asset to any team. He starts the game at Aston Villa and is a little hit and miss for them as a first team regular, with Martin O'Neill preferring to play Agbonlahor and Barry on his flanks.

[edit] Transfer

Willing to leave Villa to any top half club in the 3 major European leagues, Young will set you back around £25,000,000 at the start of the first season but is worth every penny. Later into the game you may be able to get him for less.

[edit] Instructions

Young's strengths lay in his pace and crossing ability. Play him with some creative freedom, frequent forward runs and run with ball. An attacking mentality also helps.
