Vardy Is Growing Into Himself

Vardy Is Growing Into Himself

Manager Nigel Pearson has talked a little more to the press following the Millwall victory, and picked out Jamie Vardy as being a source of particular positivity this season.

Speaking following the game, the gaffer again repeated that he was very pleased with the overall performance of the team and especially the result as that is obviously the most important thing in football, but he had extra joy from the victory because Millwall have been somewhat of a bogey team for us in recent years, so the gaffer was definitely happy to put that behind us with such a comprehensive victory on the day.

'I was also very pleased for Jamie, I don't think anyone who watches us would have anything but praise for his tireless efforts on behalf of the team. I know his team mates will be very pleased for him to get two goals. Last week it was David Nugent scoring two and this week it's Jamie.'

Pearson goes on to say that he feels last season Vardy did struggle, because he found it difficult to adapt to the consistency required at this level - especially given the expectation of what he'd achieved before and the size of his transfer fee - but that isn't a criticism because he knew it would be the case and he knew he needed 12 months or being around the side and in and out of the team to make that step up, and he was very pleased with the progress he showed on the pitch last season and was delighted with his attitude off the pitch when he was dropped and so on.

Many fans will also remember Pearson's surprise at links moving Vardy away from the club which from memory he described as ludicrous?

Anyway, for Pearson he learnt his Championship trade last season and proved he had the attitude to shine, and he is now proving all of that so far this campaign because his hard work and effort is now really beginning to pay off in games and he's getting his rewards.

'I think this season is a big one for Jamie in terms of how he sees himself, but as his manager, I feel he has done exceptionally well so far and I'm really pleased with how he's progressing and his contribution to the team's results.'

I'd say clearly he's beginning to see himself and gain the belief and confidence required to be a very good Championship level striker, who could also with a bit more development see himself making an impact in the top flight.

Maybe some pundits expected too much too quickly of our big money signing, I'd say he's more than justifying the fee now and he goes to show even in today's instant gratification game, a bit of patience can do everyone the world of good.
