In his last 5 seasons he scored 13 goals in 105 appearances. That says it all, for me.

Genuinely hate the guy. If he really gave a shit he would have got himself vaguely fit and helped us get back up the first season. Even a chubby straight line running tool like him should he able to bag goals in the championship.

The Garde stuff just cement his infantile victim mentality mindset. He stole a living off us and still thinks heís hard done by. Basically never stopped sulking after MON left.

This. Utter wanker.

And that much of a fan i've not seen him at VP since he hung his boots up.

Maybe he sneaks into a private box away from the limelight but I think I would have heard

I can't be bothered to watch the interview, but he's not a legend in my eyes. He couldn't even keep himself in shape, which is the absolute minimum that should be expected of a professional footballer. We were entitled to expect more from someone who supposedly supported the club. I don't blame him for seeing out his contract, but he can't also be given credit for having had the club's best interests at heart. James Collins on the other hand supposedly ripped-up his (albeit short-term) contract having injured himself in his first training session. Ultimately Gabby wasn't hungry enough, otherwise he would have asked to go on loan, or leave, long before he eventually did. The fact that he can't be bothered to play for another club says it all really.

I maintain that managing to relegate one of the founding members of the EPL, after 24 continuous seasons in the richest football competition on the planet was an amazing achievement, and one unlikely to ever be repeated. Ultimately Gabby was complicit in this, and allowing our standards as a club to drop to the extent that we were relegated.

Really interesting. He liked us on his terms and when it suited him. Not in the same bracket as Taylor and other ex players who still show a genuine interest in us, including Stan. And that's before you even get into the playing side which was mostly woeful.

I'm suprised the club agreed to that being filmed at VP.

He was sitting behind me for the home SHA game last season.

There is a lot to criticise him for but not rating Garde isn't one of them, he wasn't very good.

Sounds like his latter years as a player, only turning up for a derby game.

I don't think we have a private box big enough for Gabby if he wants to bring along all of his kids.

Agbonlahor coming back like a bad smell. He should be grateful he wasnít run out of town with pitchforks and flaming torches for the way he behaved from 2011 to when he left. The fucking wastrel.

I seriously hope Garde doesnít turn the other cheek and tells us exactly how this fuckwit behaved as I donít think Gabby would come out smelling of roses.

If ever anyone epitomised out decline after 2010 it was this oaf.

Lazy, half-arsed and arrogant.  Hed make a token effort against SHA before going back to collecting and counting his undeserved salary.

Gabby Agbonlahor.   The poster boy of Aston Villa's fall

Poisonous parasite. Couldnít give a sh#t as we slowly died. The fact that no other club would touch him with a barge pole is pretty damning.

Serial grump Chris Sutton cosying up to a former team-mate for "online content" purposes , blimey, thought I'd seen it all. Did Sutton go blind with us or what happened?!
