In contrast to the opprobrium directed his way after high-profile lapses in previous seasons, he has been earning lavish praise for his displays this season.

The 23-year-old told Inside United: "I'm very happy with it. I feel like this is a particularly good moment in my career right now and I hope to continue in the same vein for some time to come.

"I feel like I'm always improving and I want to make sure that continues as well.

"It's very important that the manager values your work and now it's important to continue to play well and help the team.

"I'm very happy the manager praised me but, for me, the journey doesn't stop now - I want to keep earning praise and playing well for this team.

"I play for my team-mates and I play for my manager but I also play for the fans. When you win over a club's fans, it's a very proud moment. These are the people who pay money to come to watch you every week.

"You owe it to them to play well and give your best, so it makes me extremely happy to hear the fans singing my name."

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
