The Andros Townsend bandwagon is gathering momentum at a pace that is securing his place firmly in the priorities of Tottenham and England,[url=http://www.billigabeat.com/monster-beats-pro-diamond-edition-247]Beats Sverige[/url].
Townsend came out of left field - or in a strictly football context right-field - as a resounding selection success for England manager Roy Hodgson with two outstanding performances in the World Cup qualifying wins against Montenegro and Poland that secured their place in Brazil next summer.
And when he returned to club duties for Spurs at rain-soaked Villa Park on Sunday,[url=http://www.billigabeat.com/the-recording-technician-gem-series-246]Monster Beats[/url], he demonstrated the same verve and desire to take the direct route to goal that marks him out as England's man of the moment.
The 22-year-old's current status at Tottenham was confirmed when fit-again Aaron Lennon entered as a substitute after 66 minutes. Spurs were leading Aston Villa 1-0, thanks to Townsend's fortunate goal, and looking to close out a win that would take them up to fifth place in the Premier League.
Not so long ago, Lennon was the man who had the place on Spurs' right flank nailed down and harboured ambitions of doing the same for England after a somewhat unfulfilled international career.
On this occasion, Lennon, no mean winger and in possession of burning pace, was deputed to left. There was no moving Townsend as his tormenting of Villa defender Antonio Luna was just entering full flow.
And it was in that last 25 minutes in particular that Townsend showed he may be a real talent to be reckoned with,[url=http://www.billigabeat.com/monster-beats-by-dr-dre-tour-254]Beats By Dr Dre[/url], not someone enjoying a fleeting taste of wild-card fame.
It helps to be lucky too. And he certainly was when he put the visitors ahead in the 2-0 win with a 31st-minute cross that was almost respectfully allowed to end up in the back of the net untouched by Spurs colleagues, Villa's defence and goalkeeper Brad Guzan.
Sadly, the goal was the signal for a very unsavoury aspect to the afternoon as a smoke bomb flare was thrown from high in the Doug Ellis Stand where Spurs fans were housed,[url=http://www.billigabeat.com]Billiga Monster[/url], resulting in a direct hit between the shoulders of referee's assistant Dave Bryan,[url=http://www.billigabeat.com/team-series-21-252]Billiga Beats By Dr Dre[/url], who was understand
Bryan luckily escaped serious injury and was able to carry on, but this once again highlighted the perils of the relatively recent infiltration of these pyrotechnics into the English game and provided another investigation for the Football Association's over-crowded 'in tray'.
Townsend's performance was the acceptable face of a game that demonstrated the sheer strength of the squad available to Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas as his side responded perfectly to the shock 3-0 home defeat by West Ham United,[url=http://www.billigabeat.com/monster-beats-by-solo-257]Beats by dre[/url].
He is a player who has learned the lessons of his loan spell at QPR last season and applied them to move his career on to its next stage at Spurs and with England.
Townsend is the identikit winger. He is quick, has a variety of delivery and is willing to try his luck with what his becoming a trademark switch inside, a habit that had more than one Villa Park onlooker talking about shades of Arjen Robben.
The right foot can be of service too, as Montenegro found with his spectacular long-range finish in the 4-1 win at Wembley.
He scored one and could have set up others with a cross that flew across the face of goal without being touched and another that should have brought rewards only for Paulinho to fail to show the necessary conviction with a six-yard header.
