Tuesday media watch [01.10.13 AM]: Spotlight on Weimann
Birmingham Mail: Andi Weimann insists his goal is simply to keep on scoring - as he basks in the glory of his winner against Manchester City before getting back to business at Hull. Weimann opened his top-flight account for the season with the decisive goal in Saturday's thrilling 3-2 victory over Manuel Pellegrini's title hopefuls at Villa Park.
Birmingham Mail: There was a ridiculous theory doing the rounds during what, by Andi Weimann's standards, was a slightly subdued start to the season. It was an accusation that now the Austrian striker had got a bumper three-year contract extension tucked safely in his pocket he had suddenly gone all big-time, thinking he had already made it. Nonsense. There is no chance, either deliberately or subconsciously, that Weimann would abandon the very essence of who he is and what got him to the Premier League stage in the first place. Big-time? Really? If he was any more down to earth he would be burrowing beneath the penalty area and banging his head on the undersoil heating.
Daily Star: Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert believes Andreas Weimann's winning goal against Manchester City on Saturday could kick-start his season. Goals from Karim El Ahmadi, Leandro Bacuna and Weimann's first Premier League strike of the new season helped Villa to defeat Manuel Pellegrini's side 3-2 at Villa Park.
