Didn't Timmy C spend some time in midfield for Nuremberg this season? Never hurts to have some depth at both RB and DM.

To be honest , he will have to show out at Forest. Dolo is still part of the picture and Chandler is only out due to injury. Hopefully they sign him up.

Even if he becomes a regular at Nottingham, a starter in the championship doesnt guarentee anything. 8-12 years ago yes, but not now. Good move for him to prove his worth but it wont move him past guys like Chandler & dolo

I still can't believe Lichaj hasn't been to a single Klinsmann camp... especially given all of these outside back injuries... Please let this kid get some run in the Gold Cup, at least so we can see what he's all about, if he's bad then fine move on but how can you even know?

The thing is Parkinson he hasnt deserved a callup. It goes both ways. Perform and get PT then Klinsmann will take a look.

Its pretty fair. Since Klinsy came on board Lichaj hasn't really been seeing anything. Versus Dolo and Chandler who start pretty much every game ... Even Brad Evans our converted RB sees every game.

As for bringing him into camp though, an argument can be made. You don't really seem to start if you don't play but you can get a look in camp at least.

Exactly. Just ask Shea, D.Williams, Parkhurst, Goodson. You need PT for your club team to get national team invites. Oh wait.....

On Skysports most Villa fans are saying how they wish Lichaj could stay because of his great work rate/ attitude, his versatility, and his attacking prowess. Nottingham fans are consitering this a steal of a transfer. There's also the fact that he was mainly held on the bench because of Lowton (one of the best young RB in EPL) and Villa really needed to add some more experience on defense. Most people agree that with a bit more playing time Lichaj could become a good EPL back. Example:

"This is a real coup for the Forest. From a Villa fan to you, you wont be disappointed. All of us are disappointed to have not kept him, but at his age he needs to be getting games. On his day he's kept Moses and Bale in his back pocket, he has plenty of pace. Getting forward he has a cracking shot as well. As he learns a little bit more discipline he will easily develop into a premier league level talent with the right level of games and coaching. Good luck to him!"

This comment got 41 thumbs up and 0 thumbs down. He is obviously well respected by Villa fans and Nottingham fans. Lets take a look at outside back depth...

RB:
Dolo- 34 getting up there hopefully he can keep healthy in preparation for WC
Chandler- I really like the guy but if rumors are true that he turned down another GC call up, he may find himself in JKs doghouse
Evans- Surprisingly decent but is he really an option going forward?
Beltran- Decent in MLS but c'mon

LB:
Fabian- like him at LW but he's our best LB
Castillo- Really impressive at Tijuana, hopefully he finds his Nat form
Beasley- Impressive! Really like what I've seen but he's 31 and his main attribute is work ethic and recovery speed. The older he gets the less he's going to be able to rely on athletisism. He also doesn't play LB for club so is it smart to rely on a guy at the WC to play LB when he never plays it for club?

Basically what I'm saying is there's holes here where a strong season with NF could see him find his way into the picture. Even if he seems to have been forgotten by Klinsmann.

Lichaj started for Nottingham today in their 1-0 win. I searched him on twitter and the fans were raving about his performance, with a few calling him man of the match. I still want lichaj to get his first cap under klinsmann, or least call-in, for the bosnia friendly.

I think after his performance today he definitely should get called up. Today Zach Whitbread started today but once again got injured its a shame because he was starting for norwich city in the premier league but he just couldnt shake the injury bug. Might have been a nice options for the mens national team but just couldnt shake the injury bug.
