Wes Hoolahan scored in the 3rd minutes against the team he wanted to move to in January but Villa came back and scored four unanswered first half goals for a 4-1 loss on the day.
Despite putting in a transfer request at Norwich, Wes Hoolahan will return to their matchday squad this weekend as they host Manchester City.
Wes Hoolahan earned plaudits from manager Giovanni Trapattoni after Ireland's 3-0 win against the Faroe Islands. "He was fantastic, as he was in the last game. He has a good personality, he's creative, but he also pressed as well, which is very important."
Or is he? Wes Hoolahan finally makes his first Ireland start, but is put as a deep-lying playmaker, rather than his favoured number 10 role, off the the striker.
